Western civilization no more

Idiots are at the helm of American education, and they object to the idea that anyone might know more than they do: "Even Homer Gets Mobbed: A Massachusetts school has banned ‘The Odyssey.’" PeterKa (talk) 20:52, 27 December 2020 (EST)

Perdue is not exactly a "conservative outsider"

David Perdue (R-GA) likes to fancy himself as an "outsider" compared to other swamp politicians for some reason. [1] [2] However, at this point, he's just more of an establishmentarian globalist; yesterday he praised Trump for signing the lousy pork bill [3], and today it was reported by The Hill that he apparently had pushed for Trump to sign that pathetic legislation.

Thank God, now people can vote for Ossoff with a clear conscience, huh? Unless your real intent is to engage in voter suppression, demoralize GOP voters, and play into Stacy Abrams hands. RobSFree Kyle! 23:24, 28 December 2020 (EST)
I'm just stating some of the facts. While Republicans are better than left-wing Democrats for the most part, electing the establishment type means that pork bills and globalist measures pass through Congress easily. Besides, with all the Dominion technology in Georgia, I wouldn't be surprised if the Democrats simply find a way to steal both runoffs no matter what. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well!

As in the DOJ, there is a division in the DOD as well between white hats and black hats - between traditional patriots loyal to America, its values, and the Constitution and traditional partisan anti-American Democrats loyal party. The solution, as always, is not to reform the institution but rather expand the bureaucracy with a new sub-agency to compete with the installed civil servants and hopefully follow the direction of the elected chief executive in the long run. This is Trump's Space Force, a new service branch that requires loyalty to America and not the civil service or Democrat party. RobSFree Kyle! 05:43, 1 January 2021 (EST)

What went wrong?

From these graphs, it appears that things started to go off the rails in early May. The polls got steadily worse all through May and June. The lockdowns went into effect in late March, the "disinfectant" press conference was on April 24, and the riots started at the end of May.

Trump supporters gave the economy and crime as their top concerns. Biden supporters said health care and covid, according to Pew. ("Climate change" is America's No. 11 concern.) If you are a "completely" masculine man, you are much more likely to approve of Trump, according to Fivethirtyeight. I don't know what to make of that, but I found the result amusing. What kind of man admits to a stranger that he feels "less masculine"? Perhaps there should have been an ad campaign: "Are you man enough to vote for Trump?" PeterKa (talk) 12:00, 31 December 2020 (EST)

The real problem was that Trump later on didn't push for HCQ as he initially did. We all knew it was effective at combating COVID-19, but I guess he was paying too much attention to his inept advisers. After all, why would anyone think that Karl Rove would be great at advising campaigns? [5]LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Thursday, 12:12, 31 December 2020 (EST)
Didn't they try that in Brazil? Trump didn't use HCQ when he came down with covid in early October, although he did take zinc. Trump was his own best spokesman on covid until the disinfectent press conference at the end of April. He should not have hogged so much media attention for himself. The advantage of letting a spokesman take the lead is that you can fire him if he screws up.
Another thing that would have made a difference is if he had called out the troops to recapture the police stations and suppress the riots early on. PeterKa (talk) 17:36, 31 December 2020 (EST)
So here's the thing: Trump didn't get COVID-19 in May when he took HCQ then, as he got the virus months after last taking it. And since he admitted to a military hospital likely influenced by the Deep state, it could've been very hard, if not impossible for him to get the inexpensive, effective drug. And as for the riots, that's a good point. He probably listened to Jared Kushner too much in his lack of sufficiently suppressing the far-left insurrection. However, it's important to note from a constitutional standpoint of federal/state powers that he couldn't just do some things unilaterally; most (if not all) of the states/cities where the riots happened are run by Democrats. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Thursday, 18:27, 31 December 2020 (EST)
Betting on HCQ seems to have paid off for Bolsanaro in Brazil. He has been a roll since June.[6] His nearest rival is former president Lula, who is not eligible to run. PeterKa (talk) 19:01, 31 December 2020 (EST)
I dunno much about Brazil, and the problem here in the U.S. is that even if Trump continued to push for HCQ, the lousy media attacking the effective drug in addition to the Deep state/Big Pharma would still mean that many people wouldn't get sufficient access to it (not to mention many people distrusting it with all the misinformation), especially given all the Democrat governors restricting it. (and yet liberals ironically blame Trump for the COVID-19 deaths...)
By the way PeterKa, I think said that you live in Vietnam (correct me if I'm wrong). What's the status of HCQ there? —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Friday, 19:14, 31 December 2020 (EST)
You can go to a Vietnamese pharmacy and buy as much HCQ as you like. No prescription necessary. They import it from India. The country has four hospitals that have been rated as up to international standards, two in Hanoi and two in Saigon. Otherwise, Vietnamese health care has a shaky reputation. There have been only 35 covid deaths so far. I attribute that to the country's high level of solar radiation. On the 1 to 10 ultraviolet radiation scale, we often wieght in at 11 or 12. PeterKa (talk) 00:15, 1 January 2021 (EST)
Hmm, that's certainly interesting. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Friday, 00:19, 1 January 2021 (EST)
If you remember, at the notorious April press conference, Trump was asking researchers about the benefits of ultraviolet. PeterKa (talk) 00:28, 1 January 2021 (EST)
I apparently didn't catch up on some of that. So what was the full story about it again? —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Friday, 00:37, 1 January 2021 (EST)
This will get you up to speed: "'Scientific Basis' for Trump's Injecting Light, Disinfectant Quips" (Newsmax). There was a rally-round-the-flag moment when covid hit in March and April. But otherwise Trump has been one of the least popular figures in American politics all along. So it is not necessary to think of this or any other moment as a turning point. He won in 2016 only because Hillary was even less popular. PeterKa (talk) 04:22, 1 January 2021 (EST)
Okay, thanks for sharing the article! —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Friday, 10:15, 1 January 2021 (EST)
This is what's called "narrative engineering" to cover for Democrat election fraud. What went wrong were corrupt officials at all levels, from Governor and Secretary of State down to county election supervisors and precinct workers - in both parties. And the solution to "vote them out" is laughable. This is an unprecedented presidential election, and narrative engineering using formulas to compare it to past elections is part of the coverup of a crime against democracy and human rights. RobSFree Kyle! 04:54, 1 January 2021 (EST)
After World War II, the United States set an example to the world by rehabilitating Nazi Germany and transforming it into a democratic state. We did the same thing in Japan, South Korea, Iraq and other countries all over the globe. We were a beacon of light. Wake up and smell the coffee. Those days are over now thanks to the Biden junta, ambitious Democratic party officials, and a corrupt media. It's a new era.
The most astounding thing to me is, the message of Obama's Apology Tour and America First is basically the same - the burden of global leadership is too much for the taxpayers of one country to carry. While Obama presented in terms of a reproach, Trump tried to maintain some self-respect and dignity. The American people will decide in the next week if they willingly submit to totalitarianism, and communism and become vassals of the CCP, or retain some measure of the values that the built the country and a belief that internal self-reform is possible. RobSFree Kyle! 04:54, 1 January 2021 (EST)
"New era?" No, I don't buy that and I also don't buy that Trump was one of the "least popular" American political figures all this time (and I base this on the attendance figures of his election campaign rallies). Anyone who believes this is buying into the TDS-influenced lies being crafted by the liberal media and their Democrat puppetmasters regarding the illegal coup (of which their vote fraud scheme played a huge part) and are allowing themselves to succumb to the pessimism, apathy and defeatism that the Left wants to have happen to us.
No, that "new era" is not going to happen if, failing the attempt to do the right thing and void and overturn the illegal vote fraud, Trump (who is still the rightful winner due to the Democrats getting caught cheating, regardless of what they and their liberal media cheerleaders and Big Tech falsely claim) and those loyal to him do what should be done and invoke EO 13848 and the Insurrection act of 1807 to cut the Democrat insurrectionists off at the knees, then start rounding up and mass-incarcerating all those who took part in the coup (i.e. the entire Democrat Party, their operatives and their funders and supporters [particularly including George Soros], as well as corrupt Democrat-loyal election officials and judges and RINOs who aided and abetted in the coup and liberal media figures, both on-camera and behind it, and Big Tech heads and their employee underlings who became accessories to the crime after the fact by covering for the Democrats and then lying about it) and make examples of the coup leaders by charging them with treason, giving them their military trial and then doing with them what should be done with traitors as prescribed by American law regarding treason. One way or the other, the Democrats have done themselves in and it's the end of the line for them, and they know it (and so do the American people). Northwest (talk) 06:38, 1 January 2021 (EST)

Repealing Section 230 will destroy prostitution!

If you want to rile up the far left, tell them that their access to prostitutes is being threatened. Here is Common Dreams: "Critics Warn Repeal of Section 230 'Would Be Devastating for Human Rights, Social Movements, and Marginalized People'." It's hard to justify tech giants getting this kind of freebee. But I'm skeptical that repeal would make much difference. The exemption is already enshrined in various international treaties, whatever happens to Section 230 itself. PeterKa (talk) 01:04, 2 January 2021 (EST)

They can keep their exemption, but a provision needs to be added that once they start adding banner Templates, censoring people, and editorializing, they lose the exemption.

Roy Blunt possibly facing a formidable primary challenge in 2022?

It seems that some are already floating a possible primary challenger against RINO Roy Blunt for the 2022 U.S. Senate elections. [7] It's important to keep in mind that back in 2016, Trump carried Missouri by almost twenty points while Blunt, riding on the Trump wave, only managed to edge out a narrow victory over Democrat Jason Kander. [8] This is compared to movement conservative Josh Hawley, who won in the 2018 Midterms not only by double the victory margin of Blunt's, but defeated an incumbent Democrat in more of a "blue wave" year.

Georgia runoffs

The Democrats' dream of a remaking America as a leftist one party state along the lines of Venezuela. If they win both of the senate runoffs in Georgia, that's a realistic objective. You know the drill: let foriegners vote, expand the Supreme Court to undo Trump's appointments, and abolish the Electoral College to make voting fraud as easy as possible. Whenever they feel like rioting, they'll discover a disease that justifies putting deplorables in lockdown. The current polling averages show both Dems a point ahead of their Republican opponants. On Nov. 3, Trump beat his polling average in Georgia by one point. There hasn't really been all that many polls, so the general election results may be a better guide. Republicans were one to two points ahead at that time.[10] PeterKa (talk) 07:31, 5 January 2021 (EST)

Protest planning and organizing purposes

Facebook is just going nuts these days with the censorship and with whats going to happen for the next four years, why wouldn't they be drunk on power? But that leaves conservatives without a good place to organize these important events. Could Conservapedia be used in some way for this purpose? With the widespread shadow banning and deplatforming and doxing, we need all avenues available. Just wanted to ask and get input from others. This would also likely bring an influx of new users, so that is said. Above all, progressives want conservatives to feel alone. Isolating us, by itself, is a powerful tool that is being employed. Progressingamerica (talk) 23:17, 6 January 2021 (EST)

Just so that everybody understands the kind of potential vision that I have with this, let's say that a page had been created on December 30th for the upcoming Stop The Steal Rally scheduled for January 6th. Once that page had been created, a series of organizers would then be able to add in that it's scheduled for 11:30 AM, and another different might add in a map showing that it begins at 5th street and 12th place, and another could later update that map to show the march route, and perhaps someone else working on getting speakers could begin to add the scheduled speakers, etc etc. This sort of allowance would be incredibly useful for organizers to quickly get information out, for others to double check it for accuracy, and it would be a place that Google and the rest of them don't have reach to silence, and again, it would bring in a lot of new traffic I think while helping people reject the isolation that's being fostered. And, from the standpoint of an encyclopedia, I think it would be great to see people upload (some) of their personal photos so they aren't deleted by Instagram or whatever rotten digital platforms. Again, I am only submitting my thoughts for comment, but I think its a good one and I hope others will build on it and make it become acceptable use. Progressingamerica (talk) 23:26, 6 January 2021 (EST)
It's the Left's intent to try to demoralize (and stoke anger in) the American public through a psyop campaign via the Democrats' theft of the 2020 election, their Mafia-like threats against those who could bring the Democrats to heel so the Democrats could cow them into submission, and Antifa's infiltration of the pro-Trump protesters to stir up trouble in DC in an attempt to try to discredit the pro-Trump movement and make them, and by extension all conservatives, look bad. The trick here, though, is to see the Left's shenanigans for what they really are and to not let it get to us.
Meanwhile, Lin Wood has reported that President Trump is down at the National Defense Command Center in Abilene, Texas[12] and he's keeping a sharp eye on the events unfolding. Some, who have allowed the Left to beat them into pessimism, apathy and defeatism (or may be concern trolls engaging in a psyop), are claiming that Trump no longer has the support of the military and has been cut off from them by Pence, Pelosi et. al. - but if that really were the case, would he have been allowed to take Air Force One down to the NDCC? I have a hunch that there's more to this than is being let on, and it may well be to the coup plotters' ultimate detriment in due time. Northwest (talk) 23:49, 6 January 2021 (EST)

WaPo wants Trump removed (again)

The Washington Post has called on Pence to remove Trump using the 25th Amendment: "Trump caused the assault on the Capitol. He must be removed." Let me go on record as being the first to support following the laws concerning protests. But I note that this is coming from people who cheered the attacks on the Federal Building in Portland, as well as BLM's attacks on the White House from Lafayette Park. The Capital Police just killed a pro-Trump protester. Isn't that worse than the teargassing of Lafayette Park? If the police had continued to allow BLM to do as they pleased in the park, a major assault on the White House was in the works. In Portland, Antifa sent flaming dumpsters at the Federal Building every night for a month. PeterKa (talk) 06:13, 7 January 2021 (EST)

From the point of view of the Capitol Police, an assault by protesters on the Capitol Building is nothing out the ordinary. BLM did one back in June.

What happens when leftists attack Congress

Have Americans always recoiled in horror to attacks on the U.S. Capitol? Well, no, not so much. Jimmy Carter pardoned four Puerto Ricans who shot five congressmen from the gallery in a 1954 attack. Bill Clinton pardoned Weather Underground member Susan Rosenberg. She had 700 pounds of explosives she planned to use to blow up the Capitol. One explosion blew off the door to Robert Byrd's office. Prosecuters didn't even bother to charge Rosenberg with bombing the Capitol. Her involvement in a 1981 Brinks truck heist seemed more pressing. We have a ruling from Snopes that her activities were not terrorism: "it is a matter of subjective determination as to whether the actions for which Rosenberg was convicted and imprisoned — possession of weapons and hundreds of pounds of explosives — should be described as acts of ‘domestic terrorism.’” After all, explosives do have many legitimate, non-terrorist applications. Rosenberg is now on the board of BLM.

Was it domestic terrorism when Barack Obama and Al Sharpton joined forces to incite riots in Ferguson? Please tell us, Mitt Romney.[15]

Powerlineblog has a good rundown of recent leftist violence. No one expects leftist "protesters" to behave like decent human beings at this point. The most directly relevant example is the riots on Trump's inaugeration day.

The left is using the Capitol Hill riots as an excuse to crackdown on anybody they don't like, including Cruz and Hawley, who had nothing to do with the riots. They simply voted against certification. Several Dems voted against certification in 2005. PeterKa (talk) 11:10, 8 January 2021 (EST)

The rise of Mike Pence

No one looks more presidential in front of a camera than Vice President Mike Pence. He is getting rave reviews across the political spectrum for his recent letter: "my considered judgement that my oath to support and defend the Constitution constrains me from claiming unilateral authority to determine which electoral votes should be counted and which should not." Before 1887, the vice president had limited authority to decide which electoral votes to count. I guess he has RCP's vote since they have written quite a tribute to him: "Pence's Time for Choosing."

As to a quorum under the 12th Amendment, the problem is bringing it to the floor for a vote, which is virtually impossible. RobSFree Kyle! 12:27, 9 January 2021 (EST)
The chances of the Congressional certification of the electoral votes being undone is virtually zero. The 1887 law ties Congress' hands to certify the electoral votes in a proceeding that begins at 1:00 PM on January 6, no later and no earlier. If Congress were to ignore that law and reconvene to re-do the certification, it would create a serious constitutional crisis. Congress does not have the authority to pick and choose which laws it abides by, after all. And even if the 1887 law didn't exist, there's no provision in the Constitution that addresses the possibility of a second Congressional certification.
Meanwhile, let's assume your scenario plays out. Congress reconvenes, the original certification is voided, and no re-certification is done by January 20. Or, a re-certification is done by January 20 but there's no clear majority. Trump and Pence will have no choice but to vacate the White House on January 20. Normally, this would cause Pelosi to become acting President. But in your scenario, the position of the Speaker of the House is also vacant, because Pelosi has been arrested. Next in line would be the President pro tempore of the Senate, who is currently Chuck Grassley. But whether or not Grassley can become acting President in this scenario is debatable. The Senate is currently split 50-50, and in your scenario there is no Vice President to act as a tie-breaker. Consequently, no party has a majority in the Senate. The GOP will almost certainly try to invalidate the results in the Georgia Senate races in order to give itself a clear majority, but in the interim Ossoff and Warnock will remain in office. Thus, Grassley will be under enormous pressure to resign as President pro tempore, leaving that position vacant as well. Should Grassley refuse to give into that pressure and become acting President, a further constitutional crisis would result, as the legitimacy of his presidency would be in doubt. But should he relent, next in line would be Mike Pompeo, who probably isn't going anywhere. But what happens if a new Speaker and/or new President pro tempore takes office while Grassley/Pompeo are in office? Do they resign and cede power to the new Speaker/President pro tempore?
Oh, boy.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:52, 9 January 2021 (EST)
If Trump were to invoke the powers under Executive Order 13848, that would empower the use of arrests and certain suspects could be detained and face military tribunals. RobSFree Kyle! 14:54, 9 January 2021 (EST)
Oh, and there are two different lines of succession; one to execute the powers of the office of President as Acting President, secondly to hold the nuclear codes. To restore the two separate authorities into a unified Commander-in-Chief is a legislative process.
Now, suppose Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were to become incapacitated or incarcerated before January 20? In the absence of President Pro-Temp Chuck Grassley either resigning or being removed as Acting President, who then decides who will be president with the unified powers of command-in-chief? My guess would be the House under the 12th Amendment, although some legislative process to redo the election isn't entirely out of the question. RobSFree Kyle! 15:06, 9 January 2021 (EST)

If Trump doesn't invoke E.O. 13848 now after the New York Times reported Pelosi tried to incite a military coup, it'll never happen. RobSFree Kyle! 20:30, 9 January 2021 (EST)

There is a snowball chance in hell that Trump will invoke the Insurrection Act (E.O. 13848) and declare martial law. Trump's most audacious political act was the USA - Mexico wall and he didn't build a large amount of new wall. On the other hand, he did get Mexico to beef up their border security.

Before Biden's inauguration or on Biden's Inauguration Day, Donald Trump will announce he is running again in 2024. Right now, Trump is waiting for some of the furor related to the breach of Capitol Building to die down.

The Democrats are frantic and are once again trying to get him thrown out of office so he can't run again in 2024. Conservative (talk) 00:36, 10 January 2021 (EST)

Trump has Pelosi's laptop which was purloined during the breach. They're combing it right now for evidence related to election fraud and the capital breach. That, along with her incitement of a military coup, would be enough to invoke E.O. 13848, and there won't be any Acting President Pelosi.
This is why she's in such a hurry to impeach Trump on Monday. RobSFree Kyle! 01:24, 10 January 2021 (EST)
Yes a Pelosi laptop was stolen -- as stolen property it can't be combed for anything by the US gov't, amd the US gov't has not credibly claimed to have it. I think the idea that Trump will serve a consecutive second term is fantasy at best now and the idea Pelosi will be removed is more than unlikely.--IScott (talk) 10:39, 10 January 2021 (EST)
I am not involved in Republican politics or American politics enough to know if Trump is electable in 2024 and will run again. The Capital Building crisis is causing problems for him now, but the public has a short memory. Trump has a loyal base, but I don't know how much influence "country club" Republicans and Republican moderates have in the current GOP.
As far as Trump running again, a lot depends on how well Biden/Harris perform their duties and how much populism sweeps Europe in the next 2-3 years (Brexit helped get Trump elected in 2016). As far as the economy, Biden will probably try to flood the zone with stimulus and government spending which could temporarily be like a "sugar high" to the economy, but he will probably raise taxes/regulations and the national government debt which will be a drag on the economy. Emmanuel Macron caused a lot of problems to himself with his gasoline tax (Tax was imposed due to "global warming" alarmism). Biden's foreign policy could be interventionist as well which could get the USA into needless conflicts and so he could face backlash over that. Conservative (talk) 14:33, 10 January 2021 (EST)
According to people familiar with the matter, the Insurrection Act has been invoked. Mark the timestamp. RobSFree Kyle! 14:36, 10 January 2021 (EST)

Trump is going to remain a political force to be reckoned with.

I cite:

"Despite Twitter’s permanent suspension of President Trump and the mainstream media’s efforts to smear him as responsible for Capitol violence, his approval ratings have remained unchanged.

Numbers from Rasmussen Reports show that following both of these events, his approval rating has shifted either one or two percentage points – exclusively trending upwards.

This includes an increase of two percent – from 47 percent to 49 percent – on January 7th, the day immediately after the pro-Trump rally in Washington, D.C. and certification of electoral college results."[18]

Biden/Harris are probably going to be screwups so Trump has a chance to win in 2024 if he chooses to run. Given Trump's ego/drive, he probably will run in 2024.Conservative (talk) 02:54, 12 January 2021 (EST)

Amazon takes down Parler

Parler, the free speech Twitter alternative, has been kicked off of Amazon's web hosting. It could be down for a week while the site finds a new host. This follows action against Trump and Parler by Apple and Google. They're yapping about moderation policy. Big tech isn't moderating posts from the Chinese or Iranian governments. Surely the immediate issue is that if Trump goes to Parler, Twitter will lose business. So Apple, Amazon, and Google collude to back Twitter up. What is anti-trust law for if it doesn't prevent this type of action? Big tech did this to Alex Jones and the New York Post earlier. Trump should have shifted to Parler after the first time they censored him.PeterKa (talk) 00:51, 10 January 2021 (EST)

Anti-trust law was an invention of the progressive era. It's by progressives, for progressivism. Progressingamerica (talk) 02:03, 10 January 2021 (EST)
Yes and no. Populism paralleled the Progressive era, there were then, as there is now, differences between populists and progressives, although there was then as there is now some overlap. Progressives may have been more successful at the ballot box and entering the civil service, as few populists ran for office as populists or entered civil service.
Populism is more a journalistic phrase than an organized movement, as many people then and now would identify as populists without being members of an organized movement or Populist party.
Also, as somewhat of a quirk of the times, "anti-monopoly" is a more fitting term than anti-trust, although the legislation from that period of time is deemed "anti-Trust". RobSFree Kyle! 02:14, 10 January 2021 (EST)

America on the brink

Something big has to happen soon or no Republican will get elected to anything ever again. Back before the Georgia runoff on January 5, we could imagine that we lived in a stable constitutional republic. Now it's open season on conservatives. We all need go over to Parler and organize protests, arm the Proud Boys, push the panic button, or something. (Several news articles announced that Parler was taken down, but it is still working at this point.) If Trump as the sitting president can be banned from social media, anyone can be. No political figure of any prominence endorsed breaching the Capitol. Yet this incident is being used as a rationale for a sweeping new set of restrictions.

The pro-riot Right

Let's get something straight here. Yes, the pro-riot Right is real.

Nick Fuentes and some of his "Groyper" followers are confirmed to be among the people who participated in the storming of the Capitol. While Fuentes himself did not enter the building, he did trespass onto the property as the riot ensued. He has since posted numerous tweets making his stance on the riot very clear: Not only does he support the riot, but he also considers conservatives who oppose the riot as being grifters and enablers of treason. Given that stance, there is little reason to doubt that he actively incited people to riot while he was on the Capitol property.[27] In light of all that, it is very puzzling that even now, he still has a Twitter account (and even a blue checkmark).

Then there's another movement that needs to be addressed: the "Boogaloos." A loose coalition of radicals (mostly anarcho-libertarians and white supremacists) who believe the federal government has lost all legitimacy because of its increasingly authoritarian nature, especially where gun control is concerned. They also believe in a sub-ideology known as "accelerationism." In other words, they believe it is their duty to cause as much chaos as possible so society breaks down, civil war happens, and they violently overthrow the federal government. They identify as right-wingers, but when it comes to the big picture they don't care about ideology at all. They openly support any and all militant groups who seek to "burn it all down," including Antifa. Because at the end of the day, they believe the federal government is the only real enemy. Members of the Boogaloo movement are confirmed to have participated in the Capitol riot. And prior to that, they were also participating in BLM-related riots, teaming up with Antifa to cause violence and mayhem.[[28]][29] Today, they are one of, if not the main force behind the ongoing organization of future armed marches on the national Capitol plus all 50 state Capitols.[30] The FBI is supposedly monitoring their online activity very closely, but will that be enough.[31]

The Capitol riot was also endorsed by Gateway Pundit contributor Cassandra Fairbanks, who referred to the rioters as "patriots."[32]

One thing about hat, though - USA Today and Reuters are not reliable sources because of their liberal bias (and both are known for pushing fake news), and Fox News has become far less reliable since they threw in for Biden in the stolen election; as for the TGP article, that was published before it became known that Antifa was behind the false flag storming of the Capitol. Sorry, Geopolitician, but it just doesn't pass the taste or smell tests. Northwest (talk) 16:52, 12 January 2021 (EST)

Northwest, if you don't want to believe USA Today, Reuters, and FOX, fine. Do your own homework. Look up the people who I mentioned and then get back to me. Oh, and if you have a chance please take a look at the comments in this Breitbart article. Sort them from oldest to newest, and then scroll though them. You will find a lot of pro-riot comments. And if you want to go further, look through the comment histories of the people who posted them. Most, if not all of them have consistently identified as being unwavering supporters of the President.
There is no excuse for these people dropping all pretenses of supporting law and order and actively rooting for the riot. False flag or not (and I personally don't believe it was), they exposed where they really stand on this, and it's reprehensible. Meanwhile, their desperate attempts at backtracking expose them as being unprincipled. And they have rightfully earned scorn from both (1) fellow conservatives who actually do believe in law and order; and (2) fellow riot backers who see them as sell-outs and grifters.
What happened at the Capitol has created what will ultimately become an existential crisis within the right. And if the wrong cards are played, both the establishment and the Trump movement could end up being reduced to marginal voices; displaced by people like Fuentes and the Boogaloos. It won't happen overnight, but rather over the course of several election cycles. But with each one, this new divide will become more evident and more bitter. And it will be impossible to ignore.--Geopolitician (talk) 19:37, 12 January 2021 (EST)

Just my two cents there. Northwest (talk) 20:29, 12 January 2021 (EST)

First of all, Derrick Evans is a Democrat who ran as a Republican after losing the Democrat primary. According to the Minneapolis Star/Tribune, the Boogaloo Boys burnt down the Minneapolis Police precinct building during the George Floyd riots. RobSFree Kyle! 16:39, 13 January 2021 (EST)
You're incorrect regarding Evans. When he lost the Democrat primary in 2016, he ran in the general as a Libertarian, not as a Republican. He didn't become a Republican until after that election, and didn't run for office again until 2020. Meanwhile, West Virginia is one of those states where a Democrat doesn't necessarily equate to being a liberal or progressive. Although it has voted Republican in every Presidential election since 2000, it has elected a Republican Senator only twice (in 2014 and in 2020) and elected a Republican governor only once (in 2020) during that same time period. Which indicates that a lot of people who vote Republican for President also vote Democrat on other parts of the ballot.
That being said, one must realize that in the worlds of anarchy and totalitarianism, the left and right have a much different relationship with each other than they do outside of those worlds. What the Boogaloos are doing is a great example of Horseshoe Theory at work.--Geopolitician (talk) 19:20, 13 January 2021 (EST)

Some observations.....

I know most CP editors tend to skip over my posts here, but this is a very important one. Firstly, there's something about Pelosi's re-election as Speaker that needs to be analyzed. She only won re-election in the position this time by a very narrow margin of 216 to 209 votes [33]; how did this happen? Firstly, keep in mind that some Republicans couldn't attend. Letlow tragically died, Valadao and Elvira Salazar couldn't make it to the vote due to getting COVID-19, and the NY-22 is still "undecided" despite Tenney likely having won over Brindisi. Gwen Moore still attended the vote to support Pelosi, and the number of Democrats that refused to vote for her is significantly smaller than last time.

There's something else that's noteworthy: the MSM has not yet particularly focused on labeling the protest at January 6 a "coronavirus superspreader" much. They're expecting a Biden inauguration, so it seems that they're zipping their extensive coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic and ignore the deaths as Biden is about to take office.

Lastly, with the lousy impeachment nonsense coming, the swampy establishment Republicans are about to show themselves who they really are. RINO John Katko just said he would support impeaching Trump. [34] Kinzinger, who said that he would support removing Trump via the 25th Amendment, is likely to support the sham. Here are some others who I think are more likely to vote for it:

COVID-19 - potential hoax?

It was reported by a Canadian website called Fluoride Free Peel that Health Canada and Australia and New Zealand's health departments have no record of any isolation of what has been claimed by the liberal media to be the "COVID-19 virus", and those reports go into some significant detail.[38][39][40] In addition, this article reports that no governmental health agencies (including the CDC) have ever actually isolated what they allege to be "COVID-19"; as part of the report, it discusses (and relates it to current events) the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918-19, where the majority of those who died in the pandemic at that time did not actually die of the Spanish flu, but of bacterial pneumonia - and that the bacterial pneumonia was caused by wearing masks, the same types of masks now being forced onto us by leftist regimes at the federal, state and local levels (and tying in to that issue, this article correctly points out that wearing face masks, even for brief periods, is a bad idea because it causes the wearers to rebreathe some of their own CO2, the dangers of which are illustrated in this article). Additionally, I had found some articles that reported that all of the representations in the media of what has been claimed to be "COVID-19" are actually just computer-created stills or animated models, because there are no reports of any actual authentic visual captures or representations of "COVID-19" (which ties in to the reports of it never being isolated; the articles reporting this are getting harder to find due to scrubbing and deplatforming of them by liberal Big Tech, but they have to be out there somewhere online).

The News with Views article also points out that doctors who have questioned the official narrative regarding "COVID-19" have been ridiculed, censured and even fired from their jobs by those in power pushing the narrative, while Google/YouTube and Facebook have censored articles and videos that question the narrative surrounding "COVID-19", including even its existence, in coverup attempts to protect their narrative. Unsurprisingly, the liberal media (including "fact-checking" sites) is calling questioning of the "COVID-19" narrative (including reports of the Democrats and the CCP colluding to use it to undermine the American and global economies and the Trump administration and as a cover for the Democrats to rig and illegally steal the 2020 election) "conspiracy theories", as well as opponents of the narrative "coronavirus deniers", to try to discredit those reports, but they provide no legitimate evidence or any sort of proof for their claims other than either their own say-so or fabricated "evidence", expecting us to take their word alone for it.

With more and more coming out about the truth about this "COVID-19" controversy and with more research needing to be done (and there are other articles online that also question the narrative, such as this one), it might be necessary to eventually rewrite the CP articles relating to "COVID-19" (including the article itself, the CCP global pandemic article, the covidiot article and others) to reflect what is being uncovered.

Fire Pompeo now

If Trump can fire Bill Barr less than one month before leaving office, he can do the same with Mike Pompeo during his final week.

Pompeo has to go, and he has to go now. I've been in the anti-Pompeo camp for some time, but his latest comment on the (non-existent) alliance between al-Qaeda and Iran is the most blatant example yet of his total contempt for the reality of the situation in the Middle East. He's always been a lying neocon hack who likes to intentionally push false narratives in order to justify unnecessary wars, but now he's going full George W. Bush.

Many people see Pompeo as a potential GOP nominee in 2024. God forbid! But Trump has a grand opportunity to end Pompeo's presidential run before it even begins by firing him now. The scarlet letter of being a fired Trump appointee will permanently destroy Pompeo's credibility among Trump's base, which is a must-happen if we don't want to see him as the 2024 nominee. For the good of the country, Trump must do that. And then perhaps disown the Abraham Accords, which were based on the same lies that Pompeo has pushed.--Geopolitician (talk) 02:33, 13 January 2021 (EST)

The meddling of the Saudi regime is one of the central reasons why the US is in crisis. Ever since we created the (arguably unconstitutional) petrodollar system with them, they have been manipulating our government into doing its bidding in both foreign and domestic policy. Virtually every armed conflict we've fought since the Gulf War -- and their consequences -- can be traced back to the Saudi regime's meddling. The same can be said about virtually every police state measure imposed by the federal government since the PATRIOT Act (which are rooted in the phony "War on Terror"). Next on the Saudi agenda is war with Iran, so people like Pompeo are working overtime to create fake narratives about how Iran is the big bad terrorist state in the Middle East, when in fact it is Saudi Arabia who is sponsoring all the al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorism. This is borderline treasonous, in my humble opinion.--Geopolitician (talk) 05:26, 13 January 2021 (EST)
So this all about how bad Saudi is and nothing to do with Jews and Israel? PeterKa (talk) 09:07, 13 January 2021 (EST)

PeterKa, yes it absolutely is all about Saudi Arabia. Too bad almost nobody sees it for what it is. And now that you mention Israel/Jews, even many people who see the true nature of the Saudi regime ultimately end up dropping the ball and crapping the bed by incorporating Israel/Jews into the equation. One thing that very few people seem to understand these days is that not everything involving the Middle East has to involve Israel/Jews. If country in the Middle East that is not Israel is misbehaving, I think there ought to be rational conversations about that where people are not accusing each other of being "Zionist shills" or anti-Semites because of opinions that have nothing to do with Israel at all. --Geopolitician (talk) 12:48, 13 January 2021 (EST)

America, land of the once free

The left is coming for everyone: "The Deplatforming Continues – GoDaddy Boots AR15.com." YouTube has kicked Trump off without brothering to generate a pretext.

Here is Twitter's detailed explanation of why they removed Trump's account. It is breathtakingly arbitary:

The mention of his supporters having a ‘GIANT VOICE long into the future’ and that ‘They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!’ is being interpreted as further indication that President Trump does not plan to facilitate an ‘orderly transition’ and instead that he plans to continue to support, empower, and shield those who believe he won the election.

I don't "believe he won the election." But who is Twitter to police what its users believe? PeterKa (talk) 09:28, 13 January 2021 (EST)

Seven days to go

Do we trust Trump? Does the country hand the keys to the Biden Crime Family? Rabid Democrat Biden people want MAGA blood and not just of the man but of those in the movement. Trump drops nothing or he drops it all on the 19th. On the 20th he resigns handing over the country to a military tribunal which is a possibility. Just an elaborate opinion, we'll see soon enough. --Jpatt 12:45, 13 January 2021 (EST)

You know that Trump being impeached today? Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, objected to Florida's electors voting for Trump in 2016.

The GOP needs to stop mulling over voter fraud in the last election and move past Trump's divisive legacy. Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Greene has the right idea: "BREAKING: GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden on January 21 Over Abuse of Power (VIDEO)."

When congress counted the electoral vote in 2005, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer objected to the Ohio electors based on these accusations. In other words, they were a precedent for what Cruz and Hawley did this time around. I don't recall the company ever threatening Democrats. It seems to have a highly partisan legal strategy.

Biden punishes Americans with open borders

Can you have a country without borders? We are about to find out: "EXCLUSIVE: Tucker obtains 'shocking' internal email sent to ICE officers." Deportations are over. ICE needs to "release them all immediately. No sponsor available is not acceptable any more." This issue has gone through Congress and the courts for years. Only 34 percent of Americans want increased immigration, never mind open borders.[46] But Biden is in a position to override our laws, constitution, and democracy with an email. What is the rationale for open borders? The Democrats don't bother to provide a detailed explanation. "The president sees this as a racial equity issue," according to Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Usually a president frames his policies as somehow benefitting the American people. This sounds more like he is punishing us. PeterKa (talk) 00:50, 23 January 2021 (EST)

Biden puts a lid on it

After four historic days of reversing one job-creating Trump policy after another, Biden is putting a lid on it and uh.....what exactly? Getting his important nappy time in? Entering his hyperbaric chamber? During the 2016 campaign, Trump boasted of all the policies he'd issue on "day one." But he did not in fact make any notable policy changes during his the early days in office. Biden delivered in a big way. If you thought America didn't have enough Guatamalan gangsters, boy is this new administration on it. Biden was lucid at the debate with Trump. Now he is awake again to cancel the Keystone Pipeline and otherwise destroy the American economy. But more often he is a vegetable blathering about "the thing", sniffing little girls' hair, and sucking his idiot wife's fingers (WTF? Is he a man or a puppy?). Maybe there is a drug that they use when they need to bring him out of a stupor. It must have have some pretty serious side effects, otherwise they would use it more often.

You may be a "domestic violence extremist"

The Department of Homeland Security has a new classification for conservatives exercising what we used to think of as our first amendment rights: domestic violence extremists. Biden is treating the riot at the Capitol as his 9/11. This is a longstanding liberal dream, turnabout for the Patriot Act and other post-9/11 security measures. When Hillary called us "deplorables," it may have cost her the 2016 election. But it won the media's heart. Biden followed up last year by calling us "ugly folks." The Dems rioted all summer, but somehow it's the riot at the Capitol that requires us to sacrifice our civil liberties. The DHS bulletin cites "COVID-19 restrictions" as justification. But the media doesn't expect BLM (or Biden himself) to follow these restrictions. We are all going to be infected with the Wuhan virus, regardless of how many masks we wear.

Biden throws Putin a lifeline

Did the Dems ever believe in the Russia-Trump theory themselves? If they believe that Putin is the engineer of Trump's 2016 triumph, why aren't the Bidenistas itching for revenge? The new administration's first major foriegn policy initiative was of course to finance abortion internationally. But No. 2 was a Putin-pleasing move to extend the START nuclear treaty by five years (instead of one year) in exchange for no Russian concessions.[47] In Russian domestic politics, Putin is currently on the defensive over his treatment of opposition leader Navalny, who recently released a video exposing Putin's billion dollar palace and other ill-gotten gains. See "Putin warns against a fight of 'all against all' as the walls close in around him." PeterKa (talk) 21:25, 28 January 2021 (EST)

It's not that there is anything wrong with a U.S. president cosying up with Russia. An alliance with Russia against China makes perfect sense in terms of the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" principle. But when Trump was president, the media treated this idea as treason. PeterKa (talk) 05:12, 30 January 2021 (EST)
And it's plenty ironic when one looks back to when that same media were carrying the USSR's water (think Walter Duranty, Walter Cronkite and Bernard Redmont, for examples) and treated those who were critical of the USSR and of Communism with derision. Northwest (talk) 05:19, 30 January 2021 (EST)
In 1972, Detente was based upon an understanding between the U.S. and USSR to never allow China to compete with the U.S. and USSR in the field of nuclear weapons. That come what may, the U.S. and USSR would maintain a virtual monopoly on nuclear weapons with 94% of the world's stockpiles. That if conventional war with China ever came and the USSR and U.S. teamed up, China would still outnumber a Soviet/NATO alliance in manpower 2-1. So an understanding was reached, that both would maintain superiority over the planet in nuclear weapons as a deterrent against Chinese conventional forces.
The dirty little secret of this understanding all these decades is, neither the U.S. nor Russia hold nuclear weapons as a defense against each other, but as a deterrent against Chinese manpower and conventional weapons. This is also a commitment to constant upgrades, as technology improves.
In the United States, this has always had to be sold as nuclear competition with Russia to get Congressional funding (and public support), cause China has never been a nuclear threat. But it really is a longstanding understanding between the U.S, and Russia.
Russia is committed to this cooperation - they asked for it. However, it has always been much more difficult and a drag on the Russian economy to maintain the constant technological upgrades. China, by contrast, which has known of this U.S./Russian cooperation and conspiracy against them for decades, now believes it has the economic might that Russia is lacking, and can break out of that low threshold in stockpiles they've been held to by the U.S. and Russia.[1] China wants to restart a nuclear arms race, which of course would finally bankrupt Russian military power, and place the entire burden on the U.S. - if the doctrine of using nukes as a deterrent against Chinese conventional forces were to remain in place. And the covid bio attack is another factor in the equation. RobSFree Kyle! 06:03, 30 January 2021 (EST)
The simple evidence of this longstanding cooperation, and secondarily that Trump-Russia was a bunch of balderdash, is the International Space Station. When the Space Shuttle was retired, the U.S. got out of the rocket building business for about a decade. Instead, the U.S. Treasury and U.S. taxpayer subsidized the Russian ballistic missile program directly by paying them to launch rockets into space. These billions were appropriated and paid every year throughout the Trump-Russia hoax, meaning Congress itself was in on the scam, trying to convince Americans that Russia was an enemy while subsidizing the Russian military-industrial complex at the same time.
(IMO and analysis, just because the MSM doesn't report on any of these obvious facts is no excuse for you, the citizen taxpayer, to say "I'm stupid. I didn't know any of this.") RobSFree Kyle! 06:27, 30 January 2021 (EST)
IOWs, since Nixon, Kissinger, and Brezhnev, 94% of all nuclear weapons in the world are held for one purpose and one purpose only - a deterrent against Chinese conventional military manpower. There, I said it outloud. RobSFree Kyle! 16:42, 30 January 2021 (EST)

RobSFree Kyle! 16:42, 30 January 2021 (EST)
  1. This perhaps needs some explanation. That low threshold has been imposed on China involuntarily. If China ever sought to ramp up production and challenge the 94% monopoly held by the U.S. and Russia, the U.S. and Russia have colluded and cooperated together to maintain their dominance. In 2021, China is now in a much better position to break out of that imposed low threshold with the latest technology, whereas Russia and to some extent, the United States have difficulty maintaining antiquated stockpiles with outdated technology.

Two masks are better than one

Why is it so hard to come up with evidence that masks prevent covid? Well, maybe it's because one mask isn't enough, So we need to start wearing two. No, I am serious, or least the Washinton Post is.

All kidding aside, why are masks presented as specific to covid? The science is the same for flu and other viruses. Okay, we could wear masks for everything like the Japanese do.

DC statehood and others

According to Robert Barnes, if the Democrats go down the road of eliminating the filibuster and granting DC and Puerto Rico statehood, the GOP when it gets back in power would have to go down the same path of dismembering states, like California and Texas, to add more Senators.

It all depends on West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin holding the line for the next two years. West Virginia voted for Trump by 69 to 30 percent. He's playing Hamlet: “I don’t know enough about that yet. I want to see the pros and cons, so I’m waiting to see all the facts. I’m open up to see everything.” See Washington Times.

Nortern and Central California would love to split off from LA, SF and San Diego Texas could give us 10 new Senators, 7 or 8 Republicans and 2 or 3 Democrats.

Hey kid, get back in your cage

Nancy Pelosi once called for "uprisings" on the issue of "kids in cages." But that was so last year. You're not going to leave abandoned kids on the streets, are you? See "Biden Administration Opens Detention Centers For Wave Of Abandoned Children Amassing At Border." Check this one out too: "Biden Taps Architect Of ‘Children In Cages’ To Lead Homeland Security." It is about Alejandro Mayorkas, a notorious fundraiser who bought his way into the Biden cabinet. PeterKa (talk) 07:59, 5 February 2021 (EST)

Pelosi slices the salami with Marjorie Taylor Greene

On Thursday, the House removed Georgia Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene from committee assignments by a vote of 230 to 199. The House has over 230 years precedents at its disposal, but no one has come up with a precedent that supports this action. That is to say, there doesn't appear to be another case where the majority denied committee assignments to a member of a minority party. So what did Greene do? According to this resolution, a member "shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect credibility on the House." Greene was removed "in light of conduct she has exhibited." There are no accusations more specific than that in the resolution. But Greene has been accused of making anti-semetic comments as well as being a 9/11 Truther and a promoter of Pizzagate. The resolution was introduced by Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Democrat of Florida and former DNC chair. Surely Wasserman Schulz's relationship with Imran Awan damaged the House's credibility more seriously than anything Greene did. See "The Imran Awan Story Basically Disappeared But One Judge Is Still Asking Questions." Is Greene really more extreme than, say, Ilhan Omar, the al-Qaeda friendly Iran stooge who represents Minnesota?

The dirty little secret is that no one actually cares about Greene's "conduct" or her stupid Q-Anon theories. The Democrats want to increase their majority in the House by expelling Republicans one by one. During the Cold War, this tactic was called "slicing the salami," a term coined a Hungarian communist leader Matyas Rakosi. PeterKa (talk) 11:14, 5 February 2021 (EST)

The show trial begins

Trump's second impeachment trial, now being conducted before the U.S. Senate, is a lawless farce. Here is the relevant section of the Constitution:

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.
Trump's trial is presided over by Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont, who is not chief justice. Aside from that, he has already voted twice to remove Trump from office. If a chief justice is not available, perhaps another justice could fill in. But in no way is a partisan senator an acceptable substitute.

The most serious problem with the trial is that the statements and actions used to justify the incitement charge are in fact nothing out of the ordinary in American politics. Senator Schumer of New York has used more threatening language against Justice Kavanaugh. Obama used to tell his supporters that, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." If threatening words are bad, isn't financing a riot worse? Harris and other Dems provided bail money to rioters last summer.

Perhaps a video on Stalin's show trials is appropriate. The era of the Soviet show trial began with the murder of Leningrad party boss Sergei Kirov in 1934. Stalin was jacking Hitler's style in the Reichstag fire incident, as well as anticipating Nancy Pelosi and the Capitol riots. At a typical show trial, the defendants would confess to absurd crimes that they couldn't possibly have committed. A little like this: "The Humiliating Art of the Woke Apology". Chief Prosecutor Vyshinsky would bully them. At the end of the trial, he would shout, "Shoot them like mad dogs." So we can look forward to that part.

In 1937, Stalin purged the army. Not at all like this: "Pentagon asks troops for help battling extremism in ranks." Fifty out of 57 corps commanders were shot. At the end of all the purging, Stalin had trouble defeating Finland. PeterKa (talk) 02:34, 10 February 2021 (EST)

They have bigger fish to fry than Trump's presence or absence. The point of show trials is to let the audience know that they can't expect a fair trial for themselves. The Dems now put more emphasis on promoting voter fraud than on covid or global warming. It's a safe bet that the 2022 midterms will be "fortified" on an even grander scale than this time around. Fear of Dominion's multibillion-dollar lawsuits will keep the witnesses from talking. Venezuela, here we come. Emissions in 2020 were down 7 percent due to covid.

The "fight like hell" impeachment

The impeachment rukus keeps getting sillier. The media treats a refusal to confirm Biden's election as a form of treason. Today we get a Trump bashing video from Rep. Jamie Raskin. Ironically, Raskin himself is on record as being in favor of overturning a presidential election. He objected to counting the votes of Trump electors in 2017. Here is a video of Biden gaveling down Raskin's objection.

The video Raskin showed exposed Trump as.....a man who told a crowd to "fight like hell." This has been a common expression in American English for well over a century, according to this n-gram. The phrase experienced an upsurge in popularity during both world wars, so perhaps it was actually about fighting at that time. But it also appeared in plenty of books published in the fundamentalist era. See "Trump team fires back at Dems, claims they too have used ‘fight like hell’ rhetoric."

"Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living" is an old feminist favorite from Autobiography of Mother Jones (1925), quoted in Bartlett's. The book also says, "Fight like hell till you go to Heaven!" The Dems proudly remember President Harry S Truman as "Give 'em hell Harry."

The right thing for Trump to have done would have been to concede after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled for Biden on December 8. But who are the Dems to get high and mighty? In 2017, they rioted on inauguration day. If Raskin can be impeachment manager, voting to overturn an election is clearly not an issue if the winning candidate is a Republican. On election day 2020, the business districts of major U.S. cities were boarded up because people were afraid that if Trump won, the Democrats would respond with an enormous nationwide riot. The backbone of the party is thugs and criminals and no one expects them to behave better. PeterKa (talk) 22:53, 11 February 2021 (EST)

First they came for the Nazi analogies

With Godwin's law and all, I try to make as few Nazi analogies as possible myself. With thousands of years of human history to work with, we can be more original. But who among us can go cold turkey? Apparently not Gina Carano, who was recently fired for this offense from The Mandalorian. Pedro Pascal, the star of The Mandalorian, made an overwrought Nazi analogy on Twitter back in 2018. But he's a liberal, so that's OK.

Forbes reported that Disney has been looking for a pretext to fire Carano for two months now. That would mean that they decided to fire her shortly after she posted this tweet on November 5:

We need to clean up the election process so we are not left feeling the way we do today. Put laws in place that protect us against voter fraud. Investigate every state. Film the counting. Flush out the fake votes. Require ID. Make Voter Fraud end in 2020. Fix the system.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that the tweet "falsely suggested that voter fraud occurred in the 2020 election." It is safe to assume that the reason this issue is so sensitive is that the Dems plan to commit more fraud in future elections and don't want to be called on it. That you can no longer post in support of democracy and keep your job at Disney is a sad state of affairs. See "Shapiro Reacts to Gina Carano Getting Canceled by Hollywood."

Update: Carano has agreed to produce her own film with Ben Shapiro's Daily Wire studio.[52] This could be the birth of a conservative film studio with a big Hollywood star. That's exciting. Of course, it also sounds like the Parler story all over again. PeterKa (talk) 23:37, 12 February 2021 (EST)

Shapiro's Jewish, so then there's that. So how come nobody's talking about Bonhoeffer and his "cheap grace"? I associate him and that with this quote and Peter's edit summary. VargasMilan (talk) Saturday, 00:38, 13 February 2021 (EST)
"First they came..." is by Martin Niemöller. Both Niemöller and Bonhoeffer were Lutheran pastors who resisted the Nazis. Here is the full quote:
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
PeterKa (talk) 02:36, 13 February 2021 (EST)
Yes, that's knowledgeable of you, historically, to be able to draw the distinction. But the association remains. Please don't change the subject, but apply some attention to the relationship between Bonhoeffer's "cheap grace" and losing your job for your political activities.
And maybe when you're done, you can tackle the problem of the head of liberal Disney and this new conservative studio head both being Jewish. VargasMilan (talk) Saturday, 05:51, 13 February 2021 (EST)

World Peace returns to Conservapedia

I don't know what everybody learned from this little episode, but I know what I did. I had recalled an oracle called "The Abysmal":

The Abysmal repeated.
If you are sincere, you have success in your heart,
And whatever you do succeeds.

I never understood why they called it "the Abysmal", but it came to me this weekend. I seemed to me, if you were trapped in a pit, the best thing to do would be to give up or surrender, not think of success!

But I finally realized: It's not a pit, it's a valley.

Maybe some of you feel we have fallen into a pit after this election. But it could be we are in a valley.

I don't understand military strategy. But in a desperate lurch, my mind sought out a compensation to soothe my wounded ego for having not known! I borrowed a technique from Ronald Reagan by turning to stories. If you made the same mistake I did, this history by Plutarch written in 100 AD about Fabius and Hannibal in the 3rd century BC may be helpful to you too.

What you can use from this story to help us act politically, short or long term, with respect to this kind of campaign in a valley depends on you. It will come to you spontaneously and perhaps long into the future as well. Because Plutarch brings so many episodes to the history that it's impossible to tell what the moral of the story actually is! And maybe you could go further and think to understand more and try to see how others might perceive it.

Goodnight, and God bless.

China commandeers U.S. satellite

Defense Department sources report China is thought to have "hijacked" one or more U.S. satellites. These types of lower-altitude satellites, some even thought to have connections to Defense Department purposes, have been secretly given signals from covert electronic devices.

Maj. Bert Toynbee, a commander with the Space Force reported the breach with the perpetrators still with possible access to control of the spacecraft.

Satellites operate by maintaining orbit around the earth and performing various functions such as messaging and navigation. If they are pushed toward or away from the earth, descrepancies in their orbit will still be maintained by the earth's gravitational pull and may eventually be adjusted and restored for use.

But the Chinese who are thought to have intercepted these satellites' signals had even gained the ability to secretly activate the satellites' thrusters to decelerate the satellite along its path, cause it drop out of orbit and possibly even crash into populated areas.

Toynbee said an investigation has been underway since land stations in the U.S. along with their counterpart navigational systems have detected barely-perceptible changes in the speed of this type of satellite, previously thought to have been caused by ordinary atmospheric friction.

It is unknown how many satellite systems are affected by the leak of access to the signals, because the identity of the company thought to be involved has not been released while the investigation is ongoing.

The Chinese government has denied all involvement in the alleged activities. VargasMilan (talk) Monday, 05:22, 15 February 2021 (EST)

Untitled

The United States may survive party turmoil among those who respect the constitution, but not an exclusive public focus on phony-baloney issues designed to cut opponents down to size.

Maybe it's an attorney's job to block all obstacles to what an opposing counsel might bring against their client's case to an audience who needs to be brought up to speed, with not enough time, about what they should probably know already.

But I recently learned the word "school" comes from the word for "leisure". I don't think most of us remember school as a leisurely time.

What it actually means is that school's purpose is to intellectually educate ourselves to a degree of fundamental mastery that we can make good use of our leisure time to do the work of practicing the liberal arts to ensure our society runs well in order to maintain our freedom.

That's why adult education is so important, and why Conservapedia needs to be a big part of making sure that happens. To do that it's just as important to keep ourselves educated.

float

I'll go further than that. Do you believe in the blessèd angels? What do you suppose they do with their time?

Maybe making our lives a little easier, playing a new song you like in your head, providing artistic inspiration, helping you find the right words to say to loved ones...maybe even helping you get out of jams when you made a mistake or you're in trouble.

Did you ever think that when they get you out of trouble it costs them, if nothing else, energy? So when we listen to people who complicate, entangle or blunt our morals or even just allow them to run their course among the foolish without intelligible (and that includes learning by the heart) comment, the angels can't do their job elsewhere, and it makes things worse? In the Pythagoras article, I was just writing about the time Judea was destroyed, and if you've heard before, that, though infinite in nature, God isn't infinite in patience, maybe it would be more clear to say, to be just, God has to budget his energy to make a good life for you at all?

Please reconsider my offer to provide you with reading lists in intellectual topics that interest you. There are thousands of them; surely you would have an interest in at least one of them that in turn would help you to move on to more difficult ones that would be important that you learn.

Best wishes and God bless. VargasMilan (talk) Monday, 12:15, 15 February 2021 (EST)

Speaker Trump

So Trump runs for the House in 2022 (John Q. Adams served in the House after being president), gets elected Speaker with the 130 votes he now has + whoever else he brings in with him in 2022, impeaches Kamala for incitement and the GOP Senate convicts; then Biden gets taken out by the 25th Amendment or whatever the Deep Stae has in store for him, Trump serves out the remainder of Biden/Harris regime term, and gets re-elected in 2024. Constitutionally, a president can serve a maximum of 10 years - 2 years of somebody else's term and be elected twice. RobSFree Kyle! 01:00, 16 February 2021 (EST)

Hmm, interesting idea (I believe I saw this somewhere else a while before). The problem is that even if every Senate establishment RINO up for re-election in 2022 gets replaced with strong conservatives in addition to both NH and NV flipping red, the Senate GOP would have too many RINO Backers who would oppose Trump, making a conviction of Harris very unlikely. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well!

Now wait a minute; I can see my words have been misinterpreted by those with low reading comprehension skills. The point being made is that it shouldn't be a big problem finding corrupt Democrats and RINOs susceptible to blackmail. Now, certain bigots somehow consider either blackmailers or people being blackmailed as "fascists", which is revealing and a pretty stupid comment to make. My impression of a fascist is someone who would bust your head or kill you, rather than compromise and deal with a person by blackmail. Are all blackmailers fascists? including, say for example the Mueller team offering plea deals? This is exemplary of the liberal stupidity of many with low reading comprehension skills. They get a hormonal rush out of calling people "fascists" in the same way some people take pleasure in blocking other people. I'm looking at you, Trent. RobSFree Kyle! 13:12, 16 February 2021 (EST)

Wind Turbines Aren’t The Problem

Why the Main Page angst concerning wind turbines? According to the link provided, power plants fueled by natural gas are also having major issues. One other thing to consider, the Texas wind turbines are generating 50% more than the expected amount for this time of year. Shouldn’t the item read: “Texas wind turbines out-perform expectations during cold snap?” [53] --LSimons (talk) 17:10, 16 February 2021 (EST)

Texas generates 22% of its energy by wind power[54]. The current winter weather Texas is having is the problem, and half of its wind turbines are shut down, according to this[55][56]. What that means is when you have entire communities who rely upon the wind to provide power - and from no other source - then you have a problem when these turbines are shut down. Karajou (talk) 17:28, 16 February 2021 (EST)
The fourth paragraph of the Independent article mentions the unfrozen wind turbines are operating at a higher than expected rate. CNN mentions the issues natural gas plants are having. ERCOT manages wholesale power between the multiple electric utilities to allow procurement throughout the state. In other words, Texas wind turbines are connected to the state-wide grid and the power is shipped across the entire state. One thing Texas has difficulty with is importing and exporting power outside their grid. --LSimons (talk) 18:37, 16 February 2021 (EST)
Texas did not have enough diversification, reliability and redundancy as far as their power sources. It has too many eggs in the wind power basket.Conservative (talk) 19:45, 16 February 2021 (EST)
Only one out of five eggs are wind. Texas has plenty of diversification with solar, wind, coal, gas, and nuclear. Reliability and diversification are problems. So why is the Main Page making such a big deal about wind turbines since they are producing more than expected for this time of the year? --LSimons (talk) 19:57, 16 February 2021 (EST)
Solar energy doesn't work either in very cold weather, apparently. Texas is rich in oil, so why people nearly freezing to death there for lack of energy? It's an example of environmentalists putting their wacky, socialistic views above people's health and well-being.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 20:28, 16 February 2021 (EST)
Where is all this coming from? Solar panels are actually more efficient in colder weather, I’ve seen it myself with the panels on my rooftop. Come on, I thought this was common knowledge. Texas is rich is oil, too bad the state exports most of it. Texas is a red state. Are you actually trying to say Bush, Perry, and Abbot were wacky socialists? The Texas Renewable Portfolio Standard was originally created in 1999 when Bush was governor. Texas reached the standard fifteen years early, mainly due to market forces, not because Texas is governed by wacky socialist environmentalists. I can't believe you are defending something so indefensible. --LSimons (talk) 21:12, 16 February 2021 (EST)
Texas Governor Greg Abbott explains that the main reason for blackouts in the Houston area was the failure of a South Texas Nuclear plant. He had absolutely no complaints about wind turbines. He is also very displeased with ERCOT and wants an investigation. [57] --LSimons (talk) 21:48, 16 February 2021 (EST)
Is he credible? Sounds like a politically correct explanation. It's as though Bill Gates were to say he can't pay his bills because of such-and-such. Power outages that leave people freezing in Texas is, frankly, a scandal for which elected officials should be resigning rather than pandering further to environmentalists.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 22:09, 16 February 2021 (EST)

Someone in Texas listened to too much dumbocrat global warming nonsense and didn't think the state had to prepare for cold weather. That's my takeaway. PeterKa (talk) 02:12, 17 February 2021 (EST)

Overly relying on wind turbines are part of the problem in Texas (and probably in CA where brownouts are common at least in some areas).
France gets about 70% of their electical power from nuclear energy. The USA has amuch smaller fraction and it hasn't given permits for new nuclear facilities for public power generation since the 1970s. America should use next generation nuclear reactors (which are safer) and also spend R & D to develop these reactors so they are even better (maybe tax cut incentives for private companies). [58] The USA also needs to build the Keystone pipeline which will make energy prices cheaper.Conservative (talk) 02:47, 19 February 2021 (EST)

Dumbest. Impeachment. Ever.

Despite all the handwaving about Ukraine, Trump's first impeachment was, at least psychologically, a continuation of the Mueller investigation. In other words, it was motivated by the fact that the Democrats never accepted Trump's election in 2016. This time around, Trump's crime is that he didn't accept the results of the 2020 election. At the same time, the liberal media hails Stacy Abrams as a hero for refusing to accept the outcome of the 2018 Georgia governor's race. In short, Trump was impeached twice for being a Republican.

I have to caveat this by noting that Trump's treatment of Mike Pence was disgraceful. The Dems did bring this issue up at that very end of the trial. But in general, the Dems are anxious to present themselves, not Pence, as the victims of Trump's conduct. I have no empathy for this type of bullying self-pity.

At the time of the House impeachment, we were told that five people were killed in the Capitol riot. But it turns out that none of those people were killed by pro-Trump rioters. One died of a heart attack, one of a stroke, and another was suicide. One was a demonstrator who was shot by Capitol police in a shockingly cold blooded way that is captured on video. Officer Brian Sicknick, written up by the New York Times as the martyr of the riot, turns out not to have died in the riot after all. Demonstrations happen at the Capitol all the time. No one should be better prepared for them than the Capitol Police, one of the largest police forces in the nation with over 2,000 officers. Yet in the videos, we see them trying (and failing) to hold off demonstrators with repurposed bicycle racks. Say what? This cannot represent state-of-the-art crowd control. Pelosi was suspiciously well-prepared to leverage the demonstration for her own purposes. There is obviously more to this story than what we have been told. PeterKa (talk) 21:10, 17 February 2021 (EST)

Rush Limbaugh the great

The drive-by media, as Rush called it, has never been more despicable than it is today. It's like they pulled out the big book of political insults as soon as they found out that Rush was dead. Biden told us that Obama was, "the first African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking."[61] You'd be hard pressed to find a Rush quote that is as racist as that. The liberal media has subjected Trump to vicious name calling for years. Now they are giving Limbaugh's Reagan-style conservatism the same treatment. So it's the media rather than Trump that's responsible for the unfortunate change in tone that has occurred in American politics. Here is Mark Steyn's tribute to Rush.

Oh, that presidential thing? Biden doesn't do it. He is "refusing to release statement mourning Rush Limbaugh’s death." PeterKa (talk) 21:09, 17 February 2021 (EST)

Opium of the Intellectuals

I'm still getting "Gateway timeouts" every time I try to access important pages, particularly Recent Changes, and only when I'm logged in. I can't help but find this somewhat insulting after two months, especially when I complained and confronted the idea and asked whether I was being limited for dropping the "Gateway pundit" from my Essay:Top conservatives on Twitter list and got no response. I also noticed the article was no longer appearing on search engines and was no longer drawing readers. Is it blocked too?

I read a passage by Raymond Aron today from his 1955 work The Opium of the Intellectuals on French Communism. Bill Buckley recalled when The Gulag Archipelago came out showing in vivid pictures the truth of the consequences to civil liberties in the Soviet Union, the French Communists were silenced overnight.

Well Raymond Aron a decade earlier was putting himself at risk to report the same thing, though lacking the physical anecdotes. I'd like to cite a lengthy quotation from it, that you still might find interesting.

This way of thought, which is that of the orthodox Communists as well as that of the idealists, ends up ratifying the verdict of history. If one imagines Trotsky in the place of Stalin, the roles of traitor and judge are reversed. Inside the Party, events alone decide between rivals.
The victor is convinced he is right—agreed—but why should a philosopher subscribe to this claim? While subscribing to the same general view of history, would it not have been possible to collectivise agriculture without all the deportations and famines?
The man who in 1929 foresaw the inevitable consequences, which were later confirmed by events, of the methods about to be applied by the Party leadership, is not refuted by the final success of the operation, unless one proclaims once and for all that the human cost of "success" is of no importance.

And likewise, the man who in 1989 foresaw the inevitable consequences, which were later confirmed by events, of the methods being applied by U. S. intelligence and Dr. Fauci to solve the problem of male homosexuals beginning in the late 1960s streaming to New York seeking out multiple partners, getting on welfare and dying of venereal disease and narcotics taken to medicate, is not refuted by the final success of the operation, homosexual marriage, unless one proclaims once and for all that the human cost of "success" is of no importance.

Course correction time

In the early days of the Biden administration, it was a woke machine, opening the border and annihilating women's sports with abandon. Chief of Staff Ron Klain gets a lot of the credit for this. Lately, the machine has started sputtering.

Apparently, Puerto Rico is not becoming a state after all. See "Chuck Schumer Quietly Flip-Flops -- He's Now Opposed to Puerto Rico Statehood." Schumer figures there is no upside to supporting statehood since all the pro-statehood votes are going to AOC anyway.

Plus Puerto Rico is relocating either to New York City or to Osceola County Florida (south of Orlando).Quidam65 (talk) 12:50, 11 March 2021 (EST)

After a month of open borders, Biden is bringing back Obama-style border enforcement. When the administration proposed restricting travel from Florida due to covid, the state's leaders pointed out the under the open borders policy, there were no similar restrictions on travel from Mexico. Did that get the policy reversed?

On covid, policy has gone from "crushing" it to "Oh, well, what can you do?"[62] PeterKa (talk) 12:40, 20 February 2021 (EST)

The Neera Tanden nomination is very telling about future events. OMB is the largest White House department. The "management" part of OMB does the hiring and personnel staffing. Biden appointed a staunch anti-Sanders Clinton crony. Democratic Socialists are up in arms. They are being excluded from the administration. Manchin says he'll vote against her. She's been extremely bipartisan in her rudeness and Twitter trolling. But at this point, it could pay dividends for Susan Collins or Mitt Romney to vote for her to drive a stake through the heart of Sanderista hopes and dreams. RobSFree Kyle! 13:16, 20 February 2021 (EST)
The mainstream media has avoided dealing with Biden's failures by focusing on Texas, Cruz, and Trump. Trump isn't doing anything terribly exciting at the moment, just beefing with Mitch. But he still dominates the coverage. Meanwhile, Biden is talking gibberish at a CNN town hall. If I can parse my way through Biden's rambling incoherence, he has told Xi that he criticizes China just to appease American cultural norms. If Biden can apply relativism to himself, why should Xi take what he has to say seriously? PeterKa (talk) 08:14, 21 February 2021 (EST)

The transgendered revolution

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus tells us that, "from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’" The ancient world knew that eunuchs and other possibilities existed. Emperor Elagabalus yearned for surgery that would make him a woman. But these exceptions were not part of God's plan.

We are in the midst of a revolution which insists that men and women are interchangeable and that everyone is whatever they claim be. Thousands of children are getting hormone therapy in a breathtakingly radical experiment. The resulting transsexual suicide rate is sky high. See "Hormone therapy is a horrible risk for kids."

Are there benefits to restructuring human society this way? If there are, the people pushing the idea won't tell us about them. Their strategy, which has worked so far, is to censor and cancel opposition.

Transgenders are presented as just another minority group entitled to civil rights. Yet it is unlikely that even one member of Congress had transgendered rights in mind when Title IX of the civil rights act was enacted in 1972. The word transsexual didn't make it into popular culture until 1975 with The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Title IX was for many years understood to protect woman's sports. Biden's recent executive order turns all that on its head. Schools will have to allow anyone who checks a box as female to participate in a women's sport. See "The End of Women's Sports" and "Amazon: Buy anything you could ever want, except this book challenging transgenderism."

If transgenders who have gone through puberty count as women, they will quickly dominate women's sport. Elizabeth Warren's campaign for the presidency collapsed when the Cherokee Nation rejected her undocumented claim to be a Cherokee. But no one in the feminist movement is ready to explain the facts of life, as we used to call them, to transgendered athletes. The environmentalist movement once opposed immigration. Then somebody paid them off. Now we have an environmentalist movement that undermines the environment and a feminist movement that opposes women's interests. PeterKa (talk) 05:48, 24 February 2021 (EST)

The House recently passed the "Equality Act" to "extend federal anti-discrimination protections to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans." The Washington Post says the bill can pass the U.S. Senate if religious groups get a "narrow" waver. The effect of the bill on women's sports doesn't even rate a mention. As WaPo frames the issue, the only people who oppose the bill are religious fuddyduddies who don't understand that Jesus would have supported it: "We hope that President Biden will be the president who signs comprehensive LGBT rights legislation as an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 into law. We just fundamentally think it’s the right thing to do. We believe it’s what our savior would have us do.” In short, the liberal media is doing its best to make this piece of radical social engineering sound like a routine, housekeeping measure.

Back in 2015, Obama said "pretty much all the stuff you need to know is in Dr. Seuss."[63] He cited The Sneetches, where Dr. Seuss expounds on race. In 2020, Dr. Seuss books earned $33 million, making him the No. 2 highest earning dead celebrity, behind only Michael Jackson.

Now six of his books have been withdrawn, apparently for the offense of depicting racial minorities in whimsical drawings. The administration removed all mention of Dr. Suess from the National Read Across America event. Up to now, this annual event has been based on Dr. Suess's work. It is scheduled to correspond with the author's birthday. What Biden has done is the equivalent of banning all mention of George Washington from a President's Day event. See "6 Dr. Seuss books to stop being published because of racist imagery."

It is unlikely that those opposed Dr. Suess will be appeased with the sacrifice of six of his lesser works. The offensive is led by the Southern Poverty Law Center. This group objects precisely to the "race neutral" Martin-Luther-King-era thinking that Obama praised.[64] PeterKa (talk) 13:12, 4 March 2021 (EST)

Was Obama's mention of Dr. Suess an endorsement, or was it actually criticism of how white privilege is perpetrated, how Western civilization arose, and why the need for critical race theory? RobSFree Kyle! 15:45, 4 March 2021 (EST)
Obama was promoting literacy at the National Read Across America event. Dr. Suess was an evangelist for MLK's "not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" ideology. Here is Obama's The Sneetches reference: "We're all the same, so why would we treat somebody differently just because they don't have a star on their belly?" This type of race neutral sentiment was unremarkable at the time. But six years later, it is an offense against wokeness. PeterKa (talk) 19:59, 4 March 2021 (EST)

Neanderthals: What were they thinking?

If there is anyone in American politics who might know a thing or two about neanderthal thinking, it would be Biden. Well, OK, maybe he isn't that old. See "Biden says Texas and Mississippi guilty of ‘Neanderthal thinking’ over lifting COVID restrictions." At this point, continued covid restrictions reflect the greed of the teachers' unions. If the schools are reopened, it won't be long before the teachers try this scam again. See "The Case for Closing Public Schools… Indefinitely".

What does Biden have against neanderthals? Here's what I found: Neanderthals led humanity into ice age Europe and invented clothes, according to this BBC story. From CAT scans, it appears that they were physically capable of speech and language. They could also sing. They had big noses and thus presumably a good sense of smell. Although neanderthals were adapted for cold weather, they disappeared during a cold snap around 28,000 years ago. They were displaced by Homo sapiens, who were by this time covering up much better. They were not just making clothes, but using needles to sew pelts together.

Although our understanding of neanderthals has evolved and become nuanced over the years, I suspect Biden pulled it out simply as the meanest word he could think of. It's an analogy in the tradition of Hillary's "basket of deplorables." The media used to count up the insults Trump used and explain how "unpresidential" each one was. That's light years away from their reaction to Biden's remark. PeterKa (talk) 07:41, 6 March 2021 (EST)

It's the type of rhetoric intended to unify the Democratic party, and particularly to appeal to the bigoted far left. Biden's efforts are putting the Democrat Party First; the defeat of the minimum wage bill, and Neera Tanden's nomination spelled out plainly to the Democratic Socialists what low priority they have in staffing the junta (don't be decieved; the Green New Deal and much of woke culture is part of the corporate globalist agenda, moreso than a few radicals on the hard left). The point I'm making here is, don't be fooled either that the far leftists of the Bernie Sanders/Ocasio-Cortez stripe are just naive and ignorant. They see what's happening, and are not all mollified by rhetoric. They want action, not words. RobSFree Kyle! 05:05, 7 March 2021 (EST)

Ironically enough, a large part of the "American" Ideas that France is criticizing actually ORIGINATED in France (that, and Germany, the latter via the Frankfurt School). Let's not forget that people like Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault were directly responsible for the American Ideas that are being propagated currently. If I were France, I'd go even further than criticize those ideas, I'd make sure the guys directly responsible for that crap, Foucault and Derrada at a bare minimum, are outright forgotten by the populace and condemned. Hope they appreciate the irony. Pokeria1 (talk) 06:27, 7 March 2021 (EST)
IMO, it is the victimization aspect of wokeism that the French are reacting to. As well as critical race theory, which was invented in American higher education. France, beginning with Macron, is not prepared to condemn Western civilization for colonialism to deal with the migrant crisis, as is the thinking on the American left. RobSFree Kyle! 14:52, 7 March 2021 (EST)
Even THAT was the direct result of Michel Foucault (remember, he constantly talks about power-relationships and how everyone's inherently a victim of subjugation), and the Frankfurt School (remember, they exploited the AJC's investigation into fascism to basically condemn Conservatives as being inherently nazi-esque for their Marxist agenda, and did all they could to promote woke politics for sexual deviants). And let's not forget that Sartre was one of the first people to try and condemn Western civilization for colonialism, even going as far as to openly cheerlead the Algerian Communists in killing his fellow Frenchmen. "to shoot down an European is to kill two birds with one stone, to destroy an oppressor and the man he oppresses at the same time.", remember? Yes, our American higher education did invent critical race theory, but it was derived from the philosophies of the Frankfurt School and even the likes of Foucault, who AREN'T American, and if anything were German and French, respectively. Until Macron goes as far as to condemn Foucault, Sartre, and their ilk in what's ruining France, and advocate, say, returning to Christianity first and foremost, resuming France's original role as the Older Sister of Rome in other words, they will still end up stuck in the same mess.

Dems try stealing a House seat (IA-2)

Under the Constitution, the House is the final judge of its own returns. The House Committee on Administration is free to ignore state law and court precedent and vote on a purely partisan basis. Dems stole a House seat this way back in 1984. Now they are in the process of doing it again in Iowa's second district. This certainly puts the uproar about Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley not voting to confirm Biden's election into perspective. See "Democrats Try to Steal a House Seat in Iowa and I'm Assured It's an Insurrection." PeterKa (talk) 21:57, 11 March 2021 (EST)

The fact that Rita Hart decided to go to Pelosi rather than the Iowa courts is very telling. —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Friday, 22:18, 11 March 2021 (EST)
Despite the push to overturn the election of Mariannette Miller-Meeks in IA-2, Pelosi still portrays herself as a defender of election results. See "House Democrats draw the line: No bipartisan cooperation with Republicans who questioned the election." Here is how Pelosi explains it: “Well, it was six votes. It was six votes and our candidate, Rita Hart… asked for this process to begin. What the committee did, the House Administration Committee, was very narrow to take the process to the next step and see where it goes from there."[66] So it's not about fraud. The issue is that if the Dems can get an additional seat by stealing a mere six votes, you can't possibly expect them not to do it. PeterKa (talk) 19:33, 14 March 2021 (EDT)

Pentagon "smites" Tucker Carlson

Does the U.S. Air Force need specially designed flight suits so that wars of the future can be fought by pregnant Americans? When Tucker Carlson questioned the plan, the Pentagon's press site responded with this jaw-dropping headline: "Press Secretary Smites Fox Host That Dissed Diversity in U.S. Military." In short, Biden's military press office is not above doing a shamelessly partisan hit job. Despite the headline, the article itself consists of generalities about how wonderful diversity is.

Meghan Markle for president?

Why does the U.S. media side so strongly with Meghan Markle and against Queen Elizabeth? In her Oprah interview, Markle accused an anonymous royal of asking about her baby's skin color. Whether it's true or not, why would anyone care? Obama's memoirs include various stories where he portrays himself as a victim of racism, including the racism of the white grandmother who brought him up. By some weird logic, this type of story helps establish one's bona fides to run for office, at least in Obama's mind.

No one expects Biden to run for reelection. Harris is the candidate of the Hillary wing of the party. So the Obama endorsement is up for grabs at this point. Here is the Daily Mail: "Is Meghan Markle already preparing a bid to be America's first woman President? Duchess of Sussex will 'use furore over Oprah interview to launch political career as she networks among Democrats', claims senior Labour figure with strong links to Washington."

Lies of the mask cult

Ladies and gentleman, you all need to know something. Whatever our woke tech overlords say, masks don't work. If they did anything to stop the spread of a virus, they would work for some virus other than covid. But no one promotes mask use to counter any other disease. At the beginning of the pandemic, we were told that masks didn't work. This recommendation was based on many years of medical experience with the flu. Then we told that masks did work. We should follow the new recommendation, not because there was any new study to justify it, but because the medical authorities had been lying to us earlier to prevent panic buying. WTF? Then we needed two masks. Then we didn't. The official recommendations are constantly changing and whimsical.

Until covid, the medical authorities did not recommend that the public wear masks for any disease. They might work in a hospital setting. But otherwise, people will drop the masks to make them go around their chins, wear comfortable cloth masks as opposed to effective surgical masks, or fail to wash the masks properly. For whatever reason, they just don't seem to work outside the clinical setting. If the flu is too infectious to allow masks to work, that is even more true of covid. See this article by Daniel Horowitz.

Not so long ago, the Czech Republic was touted as a mask success story. Now it has the highest covid death rate of any nation in the world.[67] PeterKa (talk) 10:31, 15 March 2021 (EDT)

Masks were rather popular over a century ago when the world was battling the Spanish Flu. [68] There was a huge reduction in the amount of influenza hospitalizations and deaths between 2020 and 2019. [69]The Czechs did very well with the pandemic, until they let their guard down and stopped wearing the masks.[70]At the start of the pandemic, Dr. Fauci said masks were not recommended for the general public, as authorities were trying to prevent a mask shortage for health workers and the extent of asymptomatic spread was unknown. The thing is, when a novel virus is researched, recommendations will change.[71]Covid-19 is primarily spread through water droplets, wearing a cloth mask can prevent the spread of the virus. The size of the virus is irrelevant since it is typically carried in the water droplets. [72]--LSimons (talk) 20:40, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
Well, here's the thing - the overwhelming majority of deaths in the Spanish flu pandemic were not caused by the flu itself, but by bacterial pneumonia caused by being forced to wear face masks constantly.[73] To also put it plainly, if you can smell cigarette smoke through a face mask, then the masks don't work because cigarette smoke particles are far larger than any cold germs. Between all that, so much for face masks actually doing anything to "protect" anyone against the common cold or any flu bugs making the seasonal rounds. Northwest (talk) 20:51, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
Your assertion is incorrect according to the NIH. The majority of deaths during the influenza pandemic of 1918-1919 were not caused by the influenza virus acting alone. The pneumonia was caused when bacteria that normally inhabit the nose and throat invaded the lungs along a pathway created when the virus destroyed the cells that line the bronchial tubes and lungs. [74] I’d say the NIH would know about the Spanish Flu than an alternative media news site. The CDC has mask recommendations concerning influenza, they also disagree with your opinions. [75] --LSimons (talk) 22:18, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
If we take the CNN story at face value, the Czechs got tired of masks and stopped wearing them. They've now been hit harder than countries that never required masks to begin with. Sweden took the opposite approach. See "Sweden Bans Masks: ‘No Scientific Evidence’ They Prevent COVID." The Czechs had 1,954.1 covid deaths per million, the highest rate in the world. The Swedes have suffered a total of 1,278.12 covid deaths per million. PeterKa (talk) 22:52, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
It seems the Swedes have changed their minds about masks. A number of regions across Sweden are abandoning their earlier skepticism and advising people to rely more on face masks, as the country braces for a third wave of coronavirus infections.[76] At 1278 deaths/million, Sweden grossly exceeded the death rates of the other Scandinavian countries. [77] --LSimons (talk) 23:05, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
Actually, LSimons, you just missed the point I was making while you proved it at the same time - and dismissing what the other site said because you dismiss it as an "alternative news site" does not diminish what the site said regarding the actual cause of the Spanish flu pandemic deaths. Northwest (talk) 23:15, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
I did not miss your point, I actually understood it completely. And calling your reference an alternative media news site was being very generous. Since I am not an infectious disease expert, I like to get my information about such matters from reputable sources, i.e. the CDC. NIH, peer-reviewed medical journals, etc. --LSimons (talk) 23:33, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
Except that under Democrat control, those "reputable" sources that you cite are now less reputable than they used to be - and when non-credible liberal media sites get used as sources to try to bolster the pro-mask argument, that's a game-ender right there. Northwest (talk) 23:43, 15 March 2021 (EDT)
All of my references to Dr Fauci (NIH), the CDC, and the Mayo Clinic dated to the time period during the Trump administration. Seems to me you’re saying these organizations are retroactively less reputable since a Democratic president has been in office for less than two months. Bizzare. --LSimons (talk) 10:23, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
This study [78] co-authored by Fauci does not mention masks as a contributing factor in the 1918 flu pandemic, but does stress that secondary bacterial infection was a major cause of death. So, in reference to masks, here's some questions: 1. Is there a peer-reviewed study regarding respiratory complications directly related to mask use? 2. Does bacteria from the body collect on the mask when breathing out? 3. Does bacteria increase in number when on the mask, or through repeated exhalation? 4. Can an individual breath back in the bacteria collected on the mask? 5. Does the above constitute "secondary bacterial infection" as per Fauci's study above? Karajou (talk) 16:38, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
A number of excellent questions. Were you able to answer them by conducting your own research of applicable sources? --LSimons (talk) 16:45, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
No, LSimons, they were directed to you. Karajou (talk) 17:16, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
As mentioned before, I am not an infectious disease expert. Which begs the question, why are you asking me? I have absolutely no interest in doing your research. --LSimons (talk) 17:55, 16 March 2021 (EDT
Exactly. You're not an expert. Neither are we, so we have questions that need answering, and so far all we've gotten was pseudo-answers from those who claim they're in the know; they've cited official peer-reviewed papers because that's how they get in the know, but not once have they answered the above questions concerning the masks because, I believe, it goes against the agenda...which in and of itself is political ideology instead of science. The fact remains - and it's based as much in common sense as it is in science - you're going to get that secondary bacterial infection as long as you breathe in a collection of bacteria that you put on the inside of that mask. There is no way on earth you can tell me or anyone else otherwise. Karajou (talk) 18:14, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
I’d thought about looking into the efficacy of masks, bit it’d be a fool’s errand since you’re adamant that ‘there is no way on earth you can tell me or anyone else otherwise.’--LSimons (talk) 20:00, 16 March 2021 (EDT)

Various Asian cultures have been using masks very effectively as far as the coronavirus pandemic, but I am guessing they are more disciplined countries and place a higher premium on social conformity (Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Japan and China). Discplined countries that are more mask wearning have more people wearing their masks properly and more consistently. Per capita deaths from Covid-19, these Asian cultures have a much better track record as far as the coronavirus pandemic than the USA/UK which tend to value individualism more.[79]

Setting aside the issue of social distancing, masks combined with face shields is the most effective protection in terms of easy to wear head gear.[80] And one can even add goggles for shopping (like swim googles for example which many people) for extra protection since Covid-19 can infect someone via their eyes. In addition, cotton clothes hold Covid-19 less long than polyester. Ozone generators are pretty cheap and ozone kills Covid-19 (Ozone's Effectiveness in Killing SARS Coronavirus Leads to Theory on COVID-19). One can ozone one's clothes after going shopping. UVC light can kill Covid-19 also.[81] My guess is that you could use ozone/UVC light to decontaminate masks too.

Of course, it takes guts to wear the combination of a double mask/face shield/goggles when shopping in the USA/Anglosphere since it is not fashionable, but rugged, individualist, conservatives have no shortage of guts!Conservative (talk) 23:25, 15 March 2021 (EDT)

The reason the USA general public initially was told that masks are not effective was there was not enough masks for medical personal and the general public to both wear masks.[82] In addition, the USA government telling people to wear masks would have put more pressure/responsbility on the government to produce PPE very rapidly and the government did not want that!Conservative (talk) 00:22, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
Given the SARS pandemic/influenza/etc, I find it hard to believe that in an information age, the government mistakenly told people not to wear masks. My guess is that the government lied. The level of incompetence to tell people not to wear masks is possible though given the incompetence of many governement officials.Conservative (talk) 00:28, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
That masks were used in 1918 is not a reason to use them now. At that time, medical masks were made of gauze. A 1919 study by the California State Department of Health established that these were not effective. The study compared Stockton, California, which required masks in 1918, to Boston, which didn't. The link posted by LSimons above is informative. We're behaving the same way as in 1918 and ignoring improvements in medical knowledge since that time. There is a primitive place in our minds that responds to a pre-scientific and authoritarian approach to pandemics. Lockdowns have an equally unscientific origin. They were a response to the Black Death in the 14th century that supposedly saved Milan while nearby Florence was being depopulated.
Flu deaths declined during covid because they were reclassified as covid deaths. Cuomo and other governors sent covid positive patients to nursing homes to bump up the stats and get more federal money.
Here is what the surgeon general of the US Navy had to say about masks in 1918: “No evidence was presented which would justify compelling persons at large to wear masks during an epidemic. The mask is designed only to afford protection against a direct spray from the mouth of the carrier of pathogenic microorganisms … Masks of improper design, made of wide-mesh gauze, which rest against the mouth and nose, become wet with saliva, soiled with the fingers, and are changed infrequently, may lead to infection rather than prevent it, especially when worn by persons who have not even a rudimentary knowledge of the modes of transmission of the causative agents of communicable diseases.”[83]
According to Farr's Law, a disease declines at the same rate that it initially grew. That is to say, epidemics just have to burn themselves out. Public opinion may reject such fatalism, but this "law" is well-established scientifically.
After Biden was inaugerated, he told us that we needed to mask up for a hundred days. Has the dumbest president in American history somehow become even more stupid? "Joe Biden Now Says Americans Should Wear Masks Until ‘Everyone’ Is Vaccinated." Does he realize that children won't be vaccinated until 2022? PeterKa (talk) 21:38, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
The UK tried the herd immunity approach for awhile and it worked out badly.
The countries that are handling the crisis much better now than the USA such as Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Japan and China are having people wear mask and are doing things like testing, contact tracing and social distancing. Like most things in life, success leaves clues. Conservative (talk) 22:32, 16 March 2021 (EDT)
Yeah, I wouldn't cite Japan as an example of countries that handle the crisis much better than the USA, especially considering that Japan declared a state of emergency on January 7, which if anything reinforces alongside a similar situation in the Czech Republic WHY masking is a very bad idea. And quite frankly, since you're repeating leftist talking points, I'd suggest changing your user name. Pokeria1 (talk) 08:14, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
Johns Hopkins University data[84]: Japan has 6.86 deaths per 100,000 people as far as Covid-19. The USA has 164.11 deaths per 100,000 people as far as Covid-19.
It's never a good idea to politicalize science/medical science. Many times people allow their political lenses to distort reality. Objectively speaking, America has handled the coronavirus pandemic poorly. Japan has done much better. One of the factors is that the Japanese are slimmer than Americans (Higher death rate for fat people who come down with Covid-19). Japanese law requires employers to fight obesity in their companies.[85]Conservative (talk) 11:02, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
The covid infection rate in Japan is around 50 percent. But far fewer Japanese go on to develop symptoms. The Japanese diet is famously healthy, so perhaps factors like obesity, zinc, or vitamin D can account for this. But that is of course unrelated to the mask issue. What about Sweden? Unlike Britain, it actually implemented the herd immunity approach. It also did much better than the U.S.
Florida can be considered a herd immunity success story as well. Despite California's crippling covid restrictions, its death rate is about the same as Florida's. The two states have similar weather, which may be a more significant factor than masks or government policy in general. PeterKa (talk) 11:35, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
First of all, if Japan did in fact do better than us or anyone else for that matter, why did they declare a national emergency during that time and shut down nearly everything again (besides, speaking from personal experience, us Americans if anything are even MORE diligent than Japan, to the point of utter paranoia. At my job at Goodwill, for example, not only is not wearing a mask deemed a fireable offense, but they also closed down any and all fitting rooms, thus forcing in a 7-day return policy for clothing that's strictly limited to the specific stores they are bought at, and they even went as far as to outright forbid entering cars to retrieve donations. My manager even once threw a temper tantrum at one of her donor door associates for possibly doing that, literally screaming "Corona, Corona, Corona!" and "COVID, COVID, COVID!" Even did mandatory counts and constant temperature guns. And don't get me started on how the Archdiocese of Atlanta, DESPITE Kemp giving them free reign to resume masses, STILL insisted on doing lockdowns or semi-lockdowns. Heck, we aren't even allowed to schedule a doctor's appointment if we show even the slightest sign of possibly having COVID.)? Second of all, the CDC admitted that they fudged the numbers by counting people who had COVID at the time of death as COVID deaths rather than it being the direct cause. That's the REAL reason why we seemed to have higher death rates than anyone else (meaning if anything we overrepresented COVID death tallies). Pokeria1 (talk) 19:31, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
If you are the fattest nation in the world per capita with many people having poor diets and exercise habits, and you have a sizable population with lots of immigrants and lots of international plane travel, a worldwide pandemic is going to inconvenient. That is why I am not particular concerned about Americans whining about wearing masks or Covid-19 vaccinations.
America, the perfect storm of health problems is upon you and you bear a lot of blame. Many times a person's worst enemy is themselves. The same often applies to nations. When you make your bed, oftentimes you have to lie in it.
I hope this clarifies things.Conservative (talk) 20:28, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
I didn't mention anything about air travel at all regarding my issues with the lockdowns. And quite frankly, I've had enough of being lectured at about diets and exercise habits from Obama's crap about it, including giving us even crappier "healthy meal plans" and all of that. I'd expect that whole crap about healthy eating from leftists, not someone running what's supposed to be the Conservative alternative to Wikipedia. Especially when I myself am closer to dangerously underweight than obese, skin and bones in other words (might be at 119 pounds currently, which is a bit better than the 104 I'm usually at, but that's still pretty dang underweight). Besides, looking at the Goodwill customers and even some employees, I could only list five or six who were actually obese. Most of them were either thin or average build. Heck, the store manager if anything is more like a rail in overall build. And for the record, I have a lot bigger problems with the lockdowns than just the masks (though that DEFINITELY is part of it). I literally was not allowed to get doctor's appointments just for a cough simply because of the COVID lockdowns, even when the doctor's visits literally required in-person visits to even work such as investigating my chest for any possible pneumothoraxes (which I actually previously had, twice), or heck, even getting an X-ray regarding my foot. That goes FAR beyond "inconvenient". Heck, not entering a person's car to help them get their stuff out is definitely more than just "inconvenient" ESPECIALLY if the person making the donation was, say, an elderly citizen who barely is even able to walk, since that requires them to get out of their car and get it out themselves.
And either way, my objection was more your insinuation that Japan did better than us despite the fact that they very recently had a huge state of emergency that locked down quite a few places there, from movie theaters to even theme parks (in fact, it outright DELAYED the opening of Universal Studios Japan's new Super Nintendo park because of it). I'd argue that's them being WORSE off, not better. About as bad as Czech Republic's current situation in fact. In fact, by most people's definition, that's them having the WORST outcome, ESPECIALLY when they previously were praised for constantly enforcing their mask policies. And if anything, that's evidence AGAINST the mask policy being effective (use common sense, if the mask policy was truly as effective as you claim, they wouldn't BE in a national emergency by now, and if anything, they'd have LONG recovered from it). Pokeria1 (talk) 20:59, 17 March 2021 (EDT)

True conservatives understand that liberty is important, but so are responsibilities. The Apostle Paul stressed the liberty that Christians have, but he also stressed their responsibilities. And Americans have been very irresponsible when it comes to exercise, diet and related matters.

Pandemic viruses don't give a rip about a person's or nation's politics. People/nations often reap what they sow.Conservative (talk) 21:17, 17 March 2021 (EDT)

Yeah, well, going by your logic, Japan should not have even been able to have a national emergency declared on January 7 precisely because they did literally everything right in evading the virus, including masking up constantly. Yet guess what? They DID end up declaring a state of emergency due to an uptick of COVID infections and even deaths, which means if anything masking and all the stuff you're advocating for DOESN'T work at all. And I don't give a darn about liberty, either (especially when God if anything is anti-Liberty and proud of it, wanting all of creation to be his slaves, even with free will). I'm irritated at the outright paranoia that's going on, and the constant scare-factors being pushed by Fauci, despite his actions and those of the CDC being exposed as fraudulent, likely including the COVID deaths in America (we know that at least the CDC's reporting of deaths from COVID-19 in America definitely was fraudulent.). Pokeria1 (talk) 21:35, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
The nations I cited did a lot of things right and they have the corresponding stats (metrics of success) to show for it. On the other hand, maybe Japan has Covid-19 fatigue now. The nation of Israel in the Old Testament had periods where they did things right and periods where they did things very wrong. That's just human nature.Conservative (talk) 21:43, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
The only "metric of success" I care about is whether or not they engage in state of emergencies, and by extension, resume lockdowns or not, and if they do declare them, it's a failure in my book and thus the "thing that proved successful" (masking in this case) is promptly something to throw away as an abject failure not worth keeping. If I were the Emperor of Japan and I saw that a state of emergency was declared DESPITE our all wearing masks, I'd say "forget the masks, they failed us, might as well not wear them at all, not social distance, not do anything since it clearly failed to prevent a state of emergency and if anything made it even worse." Besides, are you even sure that the COVID-19 death toll in America is even genuine? The CDC has admitted to fudging the numbers significantly, after all, and even Candace Owens raised that possibility a little while back. If anything, what you're advocating IS the very definition of irresponsible, which is outright fearmongering and basically playing into Biden and Fauci's agenda, especially when Fauci's already been repeatedly exposed as a habitual liar. And let's not forget, we've had pandemics before, such as the Swine Flu back in 2009, and I sure as heck don't recall being forced to wear masks when I was in High School (I only wore a mask once nearing the end of the school year, and it was entirely my choice, and had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Swine Flu). Pokeria1 (talk) 21:51, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
Swine flu was not as deadly of a virus as Covid-19 and it didn't fill up ICU beds to the extent that Covid-19 has. Not all pandemics are equal in terms of their deadliness and burden on the hospital/health care systems.Conservative (talk) 22:05, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
Except the Swine Flu was also politicized back then, and Fauci was involved with the same politicization process as well. In fact, that's what got Sheryl Attkinson fired from CBS when she tried to break the story. Heck, if anything, the Swine Flu was an even WORSE form of politicization than COVID-19 arguably, since that involved literally pulling numbers out of thin air, while COVID-19 was at most an exaggeration. And besides, you STILL haven't addressed how the CDC up and out admitted to faking the COVID-19 deaths, which I even gave you a link to. Pokeria1 (talk) 22:40, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
In any case, even the CDC has recently admitted, again, that face masks don't really stop the spread of COVID-19 at all, or even slow it down, so that settles it. Pokeria1 (talk) 22:49, 17 March 2021 (EDT)

I never said that public health policies in a country are not affected by politics. BUt obviously, some countries/localaties have better politics/politicians and more reasonable populaces than others. Weather affects covid-19 transmissions as well. In colder areas, people spend more times indoors and have less windows open for ventilation purposes.Conservative (talk) 22:55, 17 March 2021 (EDT)

We've got an unreasonable populace who's literally buying into the fake stats, including you, and being all paranoid about possibly getting it to such an extent that they're literally shooting themselves and their customers in the proverbial foot (as I can attest from personal experience working at Goodwill and trying to get a doctor's appointment). When you're still peddling the fake death numbers despite even the CDC and more specifically Dr. Annie Bukachek admitting that the death numbers were up and out faked, it only makes YOU look like a fool at best, and a left-wing infiltrator at worst (especially when the only times I've seen ANYONE until now actually making the arguments you made are up and out left-wing anti-Trump people.). And yet again, if the lockdowns are truly successful, there would be only ONE lockdown, period, with no lockdowns afterward due to the virus being eradicated. And when Japan did a second lockdown due to an even WORSE outbreak, DESPITE it's success, it proves that "success" was a failure, period, and means we should stop masking and lockdowns due to being proven to be a failure. It's called common sense. Pokeria1 (talk) 23:02, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
I generally don't have conversations with liberal/conservative Americans about the pandemic. Both sides of the political aisle in the USA have their irrational/partisan beliefs about Covid-19 and/or its transmission. Politics can be very irrational. If Donald Trump had promoted masks early and consistently throughout the pandemic, then it probably would have been fashionable for American conservatives to wear masks. It is conceivable that Trump might have done that as Trump is a self-described "germophobe".Conservative (talk) 23:10, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
Maybe not, but when the CDC itself, including one of its doctors, ended up confirming Candice Owen's claims that the numbers were fudged, I think that would be reason enough to not trust the death rate, regardless of politics. At most, only a little over 9,000 died from COVID-19 directly. The rest had various other illnesses that were more likely to have done the killing blow. Heck, a baby even was reported to be a COVID-19 death despite said baby actually dying from reasons completely unrelated to COVID-19, as Candice Owens famously exposed a little while back. I know if I were you, and I saw the CDC admitted to faking the numbers, that'd be reason for me to change gears and STOP pushing the whole 16k death toll precisely BECAUSE I know it's faked. As it is, unless you actually change your stance based on what the CDC itself admitted back in August, which even the CCP virus in America article on this site fully acknowledged (before my edit there I should add), I seriously have to question whether you are actually conservative. And for the record, there's only conservative and liberalism, no in-between (yes, even libertarians are ultimately liberals). Heck, even the guy who invented the PCR test made it very clear Fauci lacked any knowledge on the subject and was a liar on television: https://nationalfile.com/inventor-of-pcr-test-said-fauci-doesnt-know-anything-and-is-willing-to-lie-on-television/ Pokeria1 (talk) 23:20, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
There was a study of Anglosphere salesman in the UK/USA/Australia/NZ. It was found that American salesmen lie the most. I suspect that American politicians and government workers might lie the most in the Anglosphere as well. If I am not mistaken, the national government debt in the USA is the biggest per capita in the Anglosphere. Conservative (talk) 23:53, 17 March 2021 (EDT)
I wouldn't be so sure about that study. Let's not forget that the infamous Imperial model that contributed to the COVID scamdemic response early into the "crisis" was of British origin, and that was unveiled to be a huge pack of lies and even the guy who first proposed it got caught with his pants down. And considering that NZ and maybe AUS tend to be massively left-wing, I'd argue they're probably lie quite a bit as well (after all, a lot of liars come from the left. I'd know that from personal experience dealing with left wingers at college, many of whom are my college professors, to say very little about in the entertainment industry. And that's not even getting into looking into history and seeing that it was largely left-wing politicians who tended to lie the most.). Which brings me to this point: If you keep on repeating that false statistic about 16k deaths in America (and yes, it IS a false statistic, as Dr. Annie Bukachek herself admitted back in August of 2020), even AFTER it was publicly outed, that makes you a liar as well, not to mention most likely a leftist in conservative clothing, which means I suggest you leave this site for good as we have NO use for leftists on here, period. Conservapedia was created specifically to get AWAY from the pushing of left-wing ideology that Wikipedia was doing even under its neutrality policy (and that was before Jimmy Wales stopped bothering with it), and I do NOT appreciate it when those claiming to be conservative are utilizing leftist talking points. Pokeria1 (talk) 05:54, 18 March 2021 (EDT)

In order to show that I am a liar, you need to show I knowingly told an untruth. Sadly for you, you never did that. You are thoroughly unreasonable.

Next, in some significant ways, the USA is less conservative than other countries. In recent years the U.S. has been exporting pro-homosexuality views. And the USA has a higher amount of national debt than many countries.[86] Part of the reason that USA has a lot of debt is it "foreign entanglements" which is something George Washington warned against. Having a lot of debt and being busy bodies around the world is not particularly conservative. American conservatism believes in limited government.Conservative (talk) 02:22, 19 March 2021 (EDT)

Trump urges Americans to get Covid-19 vaccine shots.[87] What's next? Masks? Face shields? Social distancing? Goggles? UV lights? Ozone generators?
Americans have never gotten Covid-19 vaccine shots! Therefore, it is not the conservative thing to do!Conservative (talk) 04:16, 19 March 2021 (EDT)
I repeatedly gave you links exposing the COVID-19 deaths by the CDC being exaggerated and especially that such were admitted by the CDC itself. If I had been you, I wholeheartedly believed the 16k deaths figure, and I uncovered evidence either on my own or if someone otherwise brought it to my attention that revealed the CDC grossly exaggerated the number by counting stuff like, say, a baby dying from pneumonia as a COVID death simply because they detected traces from COVID, or even someone who died in a car accident as a COVID death simply because they merely had COVID in their system at the time of death, I would promptly drop the 16k figure as false at the drop of a hat due to that showing it wasn't true at all, and even go as far as to tell people not to believe that figure at all. So no, that DOES prove you were lying. Even moreso when even Conservapedia's own article on the subject made that clear (and I deliberately chose an older version of the article rather than the most recent edit made by me specifically to show it was there even BEFORE I made the edit]. Last I checked, pushing that statistic despite your own site including the information, a site you act as administrator for BTW, making clear it was a false statistic, is the very definition of lying. Heck, the CDC head even admitted such was pretty much the case. And I know that a medical director under a governor of some state (found it while searching for the Candice Owens links) bluntly stated that they count anyone who has even a trace of COVID as a COVID death, even if it was not directly related.
As far as Trump's endorsement of the vaccine, with all due respect, I'm not sure I should get the vaccine ESPECIALLY if it has abortion being involved in its creation. You really think, especially given my practice of Catholicism, that I'd even SUPPORT the vaccine knowing that bit? I don't necessarily agree with everything Trump has done. He also never bothered to actually touch the homosexuality issue like, I don't know, condemn it.
As far as your other points, I'll be honest with you, I don't like our foreign adventures either, but thanks to various situations, including our essentially playing a role in bankrolling Lenin's revolution, not to mention aiding and abetting Mao Zedong's revolution during World War II instead of siding with the head of China at the time, Chiang Kai-shek via Vinegar Joe and even George Marshall, our foreign adventures is essentially OUR punishment for pretty much being responsible for Communism being spread across the world. Heck, if anything, I'd even argue that George Washington SHOULD have interfered during the French Revolution and STOPPED the Jacobins, while also making clear that he's not doing it for Great Britain, but rather doesn't want their liberty movement tarnished by a bunch of anarchists. Had he just stopped the Jacobins instead of declaring neutrality, Communism wouldn't even exist and menace the world today (let's not forget, the whole reason Karl Marx FORMED Communism was to basically do a gorier remake of the Reign of Terror), and thus would have removed any need for us to do any foreign adventures in the future at all. I'm also not fond of our exporting homosexuality either and if anything we need to stop that bit right now, even if it means bullets against homosexuals if necessary. Pokeria1 (talk) 07:37, 19 March 2021 (EDT)
Pokeria, I should have clarified my views on the amount of Covid-19 deaths. I realize that the numbers being reported on USA Covid-19 deaths are inflated. But it seems like there are so many USA Covid-19 deaths that even if they are off somewhat, the USA is not doing well when it comes to handling the coronavirus pandemic.
Part of the USA's poor handling of the crisis was baked in the cake from the beginning. Covid-19 especially hits the elderly hard. The USA has an aging population and unfortunately many American seniors are shipped off to nursing homes and in some states they shipped hospital patients with Covid-19 to nursing homes. In various countries around the world, nursing homes are not popular and families take care of elderly. Italy has an aging population and they were hit hard by the pandemic too (Plus the Italians are huggers and kissers when it comes to greetings). The other problem that was baked in the cake from the beginning is that fat people handle coronavirus infections poorly and America has a big obesity problem.Conservative (talk) 13:07, 19 March 2021 (EDT)
You want to know who ELSE has an aging population? Japan and China. Most of the population in those two countries is literally composed of old people more than actual young people, with China in particular being due to the infamous One Child Policy imposed by Mao Zedong. In fact, literally the only countries that lack an aging population are in third world countries such as Africa. And Japan had been badly affected by COVID recently enough that as noted before, it declared a state of emergency back in January 7 and shut everything down yet again, even though their deaths were supposedly less than our own.
As far as the obesity issue, here's my problem. When I think of "obesity", I specifically think of someone with a very buldging pot belly, being extremely rotund. For a good example, think Vladimir Harkonnen from Dune, or even Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid or Homer Simpson from The Simpsons. And citing BMI measurements isn't going to work with me, because if anything I view the BMI measurements to be WAY too loose of a definition (if you fudge the definition via BMI measurements just right, you could even list someone like, say, Tina Armstrong from Dead or Alive (I could also cite Kasumi from Dead or Alive if you wish), Naru Narusegawa from Love Hina, Maron from Dragon Ball Z, the triplets from Beauty and the Beast, Power Girl from DC Comics, and even freaking Barbie as obese at worst or at best "overweight", even though they're if anything deemed the ideal standard of beauty currently, and in the case of Tina, Kasumi, and Power Girl, being a couple of fighters as well as a freaking superhero, respectively, are very obviously physically fit.). As you can probably guess, I prefer extremely precise definitions of obese and not loose standards like BMI index. Pokeria1 (talk) 15:00, 19 March 2021 (EDT)
Mao wanted Chinese women barefoot, pregnant, and holding up half the sky. The one child family was Deng Xiaoping's idea. Twenty years ago, there were no fat people in Asia. Now Chinese college students are just as fat as Americans. The Chinese use an astonishing amount of cooking oil, so it's not healthy food. Other Asian countries aren't far behind. Cheap food expands the waistline, even if its healthy. PeterKa (talk) 03:22, 20 March 2021 (EDT)

Biden's "Irish humor"

When Joe Biden does that thing, it's not because he's an idiot or a racist. No, no, it's his "Irish humor" acting up, according to today's Washington Post. I'm sure Cornpop would agree. In which part of Ireland do they sniff women's hair? Well, "Biden" is not actually an Irish name. Joe is a great-great-great grandson of William Biden, who was born Sussex, England in 1787 and immigrated to the U.S. in 1822.[88] The name means "button" and suggests that one of his ancestors was a button maker.[89] His family is awfully assimilated as white American to be pulling the ethnic card. Yet Joe spent his St. Patrick's Day trying to convince Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin that he's a real Irishman. Frankly, I'm surprised that he hasn't changed his name to O'Biden. It reminds me of Obama claiming to be Kenyan until he noticed the "natural born citizen" requirement in the Constitution. PeterKa (talk) 23:50, 17 March 2021 (EDT)

Has Biden ever said anything funny? Obama is "the first African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy." Did anyone laugh at that? Indians are "taking over the country," which he said on March 4? What about when he called a young woman a “lying dog-faced pony soldier”? The Irish like nothing better than jokes that reference obscure Canadian Mountie movies, or so I've heard. But Biden's all-time scariest joke has got to be this one: “I will develop some disease and say I have to resign (as president).” Is that Irish humor, or what? Maybe it's Sicilian humor: You were dumb enough to vote me thinking that I would protect you from Harris for the next four years. There some subjects that are too serious for even Biden joke about: “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. And I’m not joking." And I'm not laughing!

Anti-Asian crime

Liberals are blaming racism for a surge in crime against Asians. The media responded to 9/11 by claiming racist attacks on Muslims. This is another page from the same playbook. No one is agitating against Asians. Pelosi and other Dems visited various Chinatowns in the early days of covid. That is to say, the Dems made a decision to adopt Asians as a victim class before anti-Asian crime was even an issue. Surely the upsurge of crime against Asians should be seen as part of the larger upsurge of crime in general following last summer's riots. Regardless of the origin of the problem, the solution is to bring back police, courts, and prisons, which were all "defunded" last year. PeterKa (talk) 00:49, 18 March 2021 (EDT)

Asian-Americans are widely known as "the model minority" in the USA. I know Indian-Americans (the country of India) make more on average than white Americans.

Yes, I agree there are plenty of leftists who are white, and I'm sickened by them as well. Unfortunately, it's not just those two (though they are the first that came to mind, three if we count Ted Lieu). I know quite a few people at the Japanese video game company Capcom are most likely communists based on stuff like this bit from Resident Evil 5. And let's not forget Ken Akamatsu, the guy who created Love Hina, which definitely engaged in a lot of proto-SJW behavior of all the cast members (and certainly managed to somehow match up with anti-Asian stereotypes a certain person wrote about that's prevalent in Hollywood DESPITE being made in Japan. Bit ironic he's trying to call out the SJW censorship of anime in Japan when he helped bring the SJW crap about with how Naru acted in that manga, and the other girls and even Keitaru Urashima for that matter.).

WaPo "correction" undermines case for impeachment

On January 3, the Washington Post ran a story that claimed that Trump had phoned Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and demanded that he "find" enough votes to overturn the election. Guess what? It turns out that this story wasn't true. The original report was published shortly before the second impeachment vote. The mistake was not corrected until last week, long after the trial. Given this timeline, it is unlikely that the misreporting was in good faith. See "Washington Post runs correction admitting it ‘misquoted’ Trump in Georgia election story."

According to WaPo`s correction: “Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say she would be ‘a national hero’ if she did so. Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize ballots in Fulton County, Ga., asserting she would find ‘dishonesty’ there. He also told her that she had ‘the most important job in the country right now.'”

Well, that's certainly......different. The original story received a great deal of play in the media and was "confirmed" by various other MSN outlets. So we can think of the MSN as a cartel that conspires to promote fake news of this kind. It's all pretty brazen considering that there was an audio recording of the call.

If we go with the "fake news cartel" idea, the fact this report ran a few days before the Capitol Hill riots leads to the some further conclusions. Pelosi may have been looking for a pretext to impeach Trump at this time. That makes it more likely that she had a hand in the security breakdown on January 6.

If I were Trump, I would have switched to Parler after Twitter did its first "fact check" back in May.[90] By the time of the "stop the steal" rally, his account would have had a giant following.

Joe Biden is falling down the steps of Air Force One (three times!) and sinking into incoherence. So who is really in charge these days? This article argues that it's Jill Biden. Unlike previous first ladies, Jill doesn't focus on any specific area. Instead, she speaks with authority on administration policy generally. Anyone who has read her thesis will find the idea that she is charge of anything to be a frightening thought. We don't actually know much about her thinking. The 25th Amendment was adopted to prevent this kind of "Edith Wilson situation" from happening again.

The fiasco that ensued when Secretary of State Anthony Blinken met with the Chinese in Anchorage suggests that nobody is at the wheel, at least as far as foreign policy goes. Liberals are too busy patting themselves on the back to treat what happened as a problem. According WaPo, "China may be right" to attack America as they did in Anchorage.
Some reports have suggested that the administration let the Anchorage talks fall apart because they don't think Biden is up to a summit with Xi.

What happens when whites become a minority

With the recent surge of illegal border crossings, we must ask what America will be like when whites are no longer the majority. In Theodore Roosevelt's time, immigrants were seen as contributing to the "melting pot" of America. But today's left rejects this assimilationist approach. It celebrates immigration, both legal and illegal, as a step toward multiculturalism. But multiculturalism is incompatible with democracy, which assumes a voting bloc of people with a common culture. When the Dems can't get a majority among Americans, they bring in people from other countries to vote for them. That's multiculturalism for you. But it is not democracy.

So what happens in multicultural states? Even those that work do not have political structures we would want to emulate. Singapore is a nice, modern city and all. But its politics is all about handing out goodies by race in order to prevent race riots. Each ethnic group votes for someone of its own ethnicity. No prospect is scarier for the city than that of a genuinely contested election.

That's the optimistic end of the multicultural scale. There is also Lebanon, where ethnic warfare between Christians, Sunnis, and Shiites has led to thuggish interventions by Syria and Iran. Separate states for separate peoples was a central cause for 19th century liberals. It was the proudest achievement of the Allies in World War I. PeterKa (talk) 07:59, 24 March 2021 (EDT)

There is no white race. It's a wholey fictitious invention. People of European stock come from at least 3 major racial backgrounds, Latin or Mediterranean (which itself is a mixed group including Arabs), Germanic, and Slavic. Any European is well aware of these racial distinctions.
The notion of a "white race" derives from the original U.S. Constitution which granted voting rights to "white males" and mandated a census every 10 years for apportionment. Unfortunately, even after passage of the 15th Amendment, the Census Bureau has continued now for 150 years to collect data and classify people by race. RobSFree Kyle! 08:13, 24 March 2021 (EDT)

While there is no "white race", American whites have a fertility rate of 1.64 births per woman and the replacement level of birth is 2.1 births per woman.[91] Fertility rates are hard to get up, but Hungary has had a little success.
White Americans are less religious than American Blacks/Hispanics and have a lower fertility rate than those two groups.[92] Plus, there is the issue of legal/illegal immigration.
Across the globe this is happening with white indigenous populations.
By 2050 or sooner, the irreligious/nonreligious population will hit its peak in Europe and then subsequently decline.

For awhile, class/money and ideology will still play a big part. But knows how long? I hope I am wrong, but I see a lot of potential disharmony in the future.

According to a Guardian Article from 2000, White People are not having the most babies in the world. "However, the UN's State of the World Population 1999 predicted that 98 per cent of the growth in the world's population by 2025 will occur in lesser developed regions, principally Africa and Asia.

Between 2020 and 2100, Africa’s population is expected to increase from 1.3 billion to 4.3 billion. Projections show these gains will come mostly in sub-Saharan Africa, which is expected to more than triple in population by 2100. The regions that include the United States and Canada (Northern America) and Australia and New Zealand (Oceania) are projected to grow throughout the rest of the century, too, but at slower rates than Africa."[98]

Many Africans are expected to emigrate to secular Europe both legally and illegally (see: Religion and migration).

A Syrian refugee kills ten white Americans at a supermarket in Boulder. That's a hard one to blame on white supremacy. So here we go again: "White House Weighs Executive Orders on Gun Control" (NYT). The U.S. had 10,258 homicides in 2019. Of these, handguns killed 6,368, knives 1,476, and rifles 364. See "FBI Data Shows Knives Kill More People Than Rifles." Yet liberals focus on "assault rifles" and claim that stop-and-frisk is racist.

Isn't more law enforcement the logical response to a crime spree? People who do not respect the law against murder are not going to follow gun control laws. With 300 million guns in circulation, no other country has anything like the level of per capita firearms that the U.S. has.

Who's Jim Eagle?

Although polls show that 70 percent of Americans support the idea of requiring identification to vote,[99] Biden wants you to know that you are a racist if you think this way. At his first press conference, Biden explained that Republican laws that require voters to show ID are so awful that they will "make Jim Crow look like 'Jim Eagle'". Say what? The name "Jim Crow" is from a buffoonish minstrel character popular in the 1830s. Yet Biden interprets the reference to suggest that crows are mean to black people while eagles are more broadminded.

You need identification for everything these days. Is Biden suggesting that only white people carry it? Frankly, that sounds a little racist. If black people don't carry ID, perhaps that's the problem should be dealt with first. PeterKa (talk) 09:20, 26 March 2021 (EDT)

Biden's first press conference

IMO, the takeaway from Biden's first press conference is that he has declined mentally since his last major performance, the debate with Trump in October. The press conference has traditionally been seen as the forum in which the American people get to see if their president can think on his feet. By that standard, Biden was cheating. The questions and the order they were asked in were arranged so that all Biden had to do was read from cards. Even when he was obviously reading from the wrong card, the media was too polite to notice.

Biden preposterously blamed Trump for the border crisis, as if Trump was supposed to get everything ready so Biden could just open the border on day one. Hey, Biden! The overwhelming majority of American don't want to increase immigration in any form. If we did want more immigrants, the solution would be to issue more visas. Letting undocumented foreigners surge across the border opens the door to terrorists, gangsters, disease, and child trafficking. The number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border is now at a record high. They aren't walking from Honduras on their own.

The press is not doing enough for Biden as far as he is concerned. It will get access to border facilities when his "plan is underway." This is a remarkably blunt way to reject transparency. See "Kayleigh McEnany: Biden's first press conference leaves Americans with many more questions than answers." PeterKa (talk) 17:28, 26 March 2021 (EDT)

Time up for the filibuster?

Biden has appointed Gayle Conelly Manchin, wife of Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to the Appalachian Regional Commission. So Biden and Manchin have apparently made a deal. Manchin is getting pork for West Virginia. It's not clear what Biden gets in exchange, but presumably the end of the filibuster. There are legitimate issues with supermajority requirements and the filibuster in general. But the Democrats don't make those arguments. Instead, they argue that the filibuster is racist. This is a transparently bogus argument designed to shut down logic and reason. The Dems were big supporters of the procedure not long ago. They have turned against it because they see an opportunity to impose one-party rule. If they can federalizing elections with HR 1 and admit DC as a state, they can make sure Republicans never win another election.

Biden supported the filibuster for fifty years. In an epic defense in 2005, he claimed that ending the procedure 'upsets the constitutional design' and would 'eviscerate the Senate.' He still supported the filibuster when he ran for president in 2020. In fact, there was no issue that he was more passionate about. This and the Hyde Amendment was about all Biden ever had as far as political principle went. Yet at the press conference on March 25, Biden denounced the filibuster as a "relic of Jim Crow." Wait a minute, here. So Biden has been a racist for the last fifty years? See this National Review article.

In the course of it's history, the filibuster has been used by senators of every ideology. In the 19th century, filibusters could be ended by majority vote using procedures such as appeal to the chair and suspending the rules. The "cloture" rule was adopted in 1917. This rule required a two-thirds vote to end a filibuster. The "two-track" or "silent" filibuster was created by Majority Leader Mike Mansfield, a Montana Democrat, in 1970. The Senate reduced the requirement for cloture to 60 votes in 1975, right after the Dems won a sweeping victory in the post-Watergate midterms. So the current version of the filibuster has an impeccably liberal pedigree. PeterKa (talk) 09:12, 27 March 2021 (EDT)

The Manchin family has quite a sleazy track record. Daughter Heather Bresch got a job as CEO of Mylan, a Dutch pharmaceutical company, despite her fake MBA. In 2016, Mylan cornered the market on EpiPen products and the price of a pen soared from $7 to $700. See "How Mylan hiked prices of lots of other products besides lifesaving EpiPen." Nearly 70 percent of West Virginians voted for Trump in 2020. Manchin is up for reelection in 2024. PeterKa (talk) 12:33, 27 March 2021 (EDT)
Out with the filibuster means a return to the pre-Calhoun/Henry Clay/Daniel Webster era. This means also out with the Sam Rayburn unanimous consent agreements, which is the only remaining filibuster. Any motion before a body of equals has to be voted on. RobSFree Kyle! 15:52, 27 March 2021 (EDT)
For example, when voting on any legislation, there is a unanimous consent request to dispense with reading the bill and entering it into the record. If, say a 5,000 page Infrastructure bill has to be read into the record before proceeding to a vote, that could take 3 days giving time to opponernts to muster support. This will be routine, right down to the committee level. RobSFree Kyle! 16:00, 27 March 2021 (EDT)
Manchin has not changed his position on the filibuster yet. Perhaps we can interpret his wife's appointment as a payoff in exchange for Manchin's vote in favor of the covid stimulus package. PeterKa (talk) 22:08, 28 March 2021 (EDT)
The next two big votes are Infrastructure (formerly known as the Green New Deal) and Breyer's replacement on SCOTUS. Manchin evidently has committed to those votes (along with other Senate confirmed Biden appointments). RobSFree Kyle! 22:17, 28 March 2021 (EDT)

Whining post-GA voter law passage

Now Major League Baseball players want to move the All-Star Game from Atlanta. And calls are being made for film makers to stop filming in Georgia. The same economics that apply to the Super Bowl also apply (if not more so) to these "exhibition" games, so let them leave. And, it's well-known that film credits are a money loser to any state that has them, so they can leave too. Quidam65 (talk) 13:28, 27 March 2021 (EDT)

Matt Gaetz

First Politico reports, he's has become a fixture on right-wing media as a go-to defender of the former president...But after Trump’s loss...He’s effectively been demoted to being in the minority of the minority party. It’s got to be a comedown. By evening the story becomes, Gaetz Claims Former DOJ Lawyer David McGee Was Extorting Him Amid a Bizarre FBI Sting Operation. Clearly, somebody in Washington doesn't want him around. RobSFree Kyle! 04:11, 31 March 2021 (EDT)

It all sounds a little like the time FBI Director Robert Mueller set New York Governor Elliot Spitzer up with a hooker string, except that there is no suggestion so far that Gaetz is a whoremonger. The legal basis for the FBI to be involved is that the unnamed girl is 17 instead of 18? If so, the bureau is one sleazy operation these days.
Like Spitzer, Gaetz is being persecuted under White Slave Traffic Act of 1910. This law has long been notorious. It has rarely been used in recent decades. It's not quite as ridiculous as the Logan Act that was used against Michael Flynn, but it's a dirty trick nonetheless. PeterKa (talk) 23:57, 1 April 2021 (EDT)
Today's mainstream media is full of salacious accusations against Gaetz. Have you no shame, Christopher Wray? This is exactly the playbook that Mueller used against Spitzer. Is the Wray FBI a law enforcement organization or a gossip broadsheet? PeterKa (talk) 02:53, 3 April 2021 (EDT)
Gaetz won my heart the day he showed up in Congress wearing a gas mask to expose the absurdity of masking rules. But what was going on in the Tucker Carlson interview? Whether Carlson was involved or not, making insinuations doesn't help your case. As far as accusations of blackmail go, that doesn't help either. In fact, it makes people ask, "What did you do that made someone think you could be blackmailed?" Gaetz, get a lawyer already! Make it a little easier on us fans.

Philippines, China clash over reef

The longstanding disputes in the South China Sea have come to boil at Whitsun Reef. Last week, this tiny reef was occupied by 220 Chinese "maritime marine" vessels. There was a similar confrontation over Scarborough Shoal in 2012. The Philippines didn't have a navy worth mentioning at that time. But they have commissioned two frigates in the last few months. Here is a Filipino perspective: "Blinken: US stands with PH after Chinese ships spotted in Juan Felipe Reef."

The islands of the South China Sea are largely uninhabitable, so this is all about the trade routes. They were unclaimed until 1933. In 2016, an international court rejected China's claims and ruled that the sea was international waters. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement in July 2020 that essentially made this ruling the U.S. position.[100]

What options does the U.S. have? First off, English-language naming conventions are created by the U.S. Board of Geographic Names. It would cost us nothing to rename the South China Sea as the "West Philippine Sea," as the Filipinos already call it.[101] This is after all a body of water that lies between Taiwan, Vietnam, and the Philippines. It is a significant distance from the Chinese mainland. The Taiwanese have offered to let the U.S. station forces at Taiping Island, the principle island in the disputed area. If China continues down its current confrontational path, that's something we should consider.

To confront the entire world at once, as China is doing, is a puzzling strategy. Philippine President Duterte would much rather be China's friend. China is also confronting Vietnam over the Spratlies, sending fighter jets across to median line to threaten Taiwan, and boycotting Australian exports. The most serious of the recent confrontations is between China and India over the Himalayan border. (There is nothing worth fighting over in the Himalayas, besides national pride.) China against the world is a recurring theme in history. The scholars call it "anti-foreignism." Both Mao and Empress Dowager Cixi followed this strategy, so it must resonate with public opinion.

Then again, perhaps there is method to Xi Jinping's madness. This all started with the crackdown on Hong Kong. Integrating Hong Kong is a project dear to Xi's heart. Xi rose to power as a protege of Zeng Qinghong, who tried and failed to impose a communist system on Hong Kong in the 2003 "Article 23" crisis. The threat to the city has become more brutal and urgent in recent weeks. Yet with China confronting so many countries on so many different fronts, Hong Kong has nearly slipped out of the headlines. PeterKa (talk) 08:47, 1 April 2021 (EDT)

It's been common knowledge for many years the PRC plans to take Taiwan by 2021; it is also common knowledge May and October or the two best months to carry out the operation due to weather conditions. RobSFree Kyle! 16:36, 1 April 2021 (EDT)
April and October, I think you mean. For the landing scenario to work, China would have to expand its amphibious landing capabilities. There is no indication that they are doing that. There are only a few places on Taiwan that are suitable for an amphibious landing. To counter the threat of a landing, Trump approved the sale of Reaper drones to Taiwan just before he left office. The Chinese have been doing the scary invasion talk thing since Tiananmen in 1989. It is addressed to the domestic audience and tells you nothing about their real intentions. China is the midst of imposing a new election system on Hong Kong. So this is a delicate moment in terms of internal Chinese politics.
There are fourteen beaches on Taiwan that are considered suitable for a landing. The point of a landing would be to seize an airfield, so that narrows it down further. The Taiwanese focus on two beaches in Taoyuan in the north and three beaches in Tainan in the south.[102] So the four Reaper drones that the U.S. has sold to Taiwan pretty much covers it. PeterKa (talk) 10:41, 2 April 2021 (EDT)
The assault will have to be principally an airborne assault by paratroopers with amphibious landings to supply equipment, hence the role of U.S. Supercarriers to counter an airborne assault. The wildcard is Joe Biden. The deployment of the maritime militia to the South China Sea spreads out the defense of a carrier task force. RobSFree Kyle! 14:33, 2 April 2021 (EDT)
These facts lead to publication of articles like this today by lobbyists for the military-industrial complex: Let’s Get Real About US Military ‘Dominance’ American strategists need to drop the assumption that the U.S. military will be the superior force in any given situation. RobSFree Kyle! 14:43, 2 April 2021 (EDT)
The U.S. has replaced the nuclear threat with Supercarriers as its frontline deterrent policy decades ago. Since the sinking of H.M.S Sheffield in the South Atlantic by Argentina during the Falklands War by an Exocet missile in 1982, some have questioned the wastefulness and foolishness of this deterrent policy. There have been numerous technical improvements (not just in missile technology) since then, including Chinese ability to kidnap American satellites in space and return them to Earth to steal and copy American technology.

Vermont governor is openly racist

I think this should be added to the main page since this GOP governor is clearly not either Conservative, Libertarian or Classical Liberal and should 100% not be in the Republican Party. Note that what he did is openly-racist is not allowing “vaccinations” against SARS-CoV-2 in the state of Vermont to white people with some exemptions. Here’s the video on it by Tim Pool: https://youtu.be/Qx3lj1YCoCM

I'm sorry. You should be more specific before throwing around the racism label. What is he being racist about? Not allwong whites the vaccine, or using non-whites as guinea pigs? And how does that differ from policies all over the United States? RobSFree Kyle! 17:05, 2 April 2021 (EDT)

I should’ve been more specific; what he was racist on was/is not allowing whites access to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine based purely on having white skin, a different protected characteristic although I’m sure other policies exist like this but without being so openly racist but yes I understand that racism is just a mostly meaningless term these days thanks to the political left in the western world effectively making it meaningless... User:William Clifton 4/APRIL/2021

It'll shift. In a few years when the plandemic is fully exposed, he'll be called racist for protecting whites and using people of color as guinea pigs for an untested and dangerous vaccine. This ultimately is what happens when you open the Pandora's box of identity politics and make it your number one issue. RobSFree Kyle! 21:07, 4 April 2021 (EDT)
Liberals still think that carbon dioxide is destroying the world, but somehow it's no longer a major issue, at least not compared to "systematic racism." Someone should ask Biden if he is still a racist now like he was back when he supported the filibuster, which was only a couple of weeks ago. If not, how did he overcome racism? I think it would be a useful lesson to us all. Perhaps a twelve-step program can be developed based on his experience. PeterKa (talk) 08:33, 5 April 2021 (EDT)

Corporate America comes out against voter ID

We used to worry about corporations using political donations to get favored candidates elected. With major corporations leading an all-out offensive against America's election system, that type of concern seems quaint: "Delta, Coca-Cola blast home state Georgia's voting restrictions as 'unacceptable'." Yes, corporate America, including Major League Baseball, is taking a stand against voter identification laws. And it is ready to boycott the state of Georgia and anyone else who stands in the way. The CEOs weren't all that concerned about this issue until a week ago. They have presumably been strong armed by the Dems and the White House.

Biden has denounced Georgia's law as "Jim Crow on steroids." The Dems won elections under regular old Jim Crow, so I guess that wasn't so bad from Biden's point of view. Yet voter ID has overwhelming support in the polls. Georgia's election law is hardly unique. So what explains the level of outrage? Well, Georgia is a crucial swing state, for one thing. The Dems obviously think that defeating voting security laws is a key to winning more elections. The cynic in me says that they are planning to commit fraud on a grand scale.

Tucker Carlson is the man of the hour. In this video, he rips Biden for leading the charge to boycott Georgia, but not China. PeterKa (talk) 07:43, 3 April 2021 (EDT)

Goodbye to all the tax breaks Delta gets in its Georgia hub. Maybe they wanted to relocate anyway. RobSFree Kyle! 21:10, 4 April 2021 (EDT)
How did Biden do it? He must have threatened Delta somehow. How many times have we been told that Biden is president of all the people? That apparently does not include the ones that live in Georgia.
It seems that the initiative for these boycotts comes from woke employees. Even when they are a small minority, they can wield outsized influence if they have the support of the media and the White House. PeterKa (talk) 18:11, 5 April 2021 (EDT)

Chauvin and the corruption of science

What killed George Floyd? Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner Andrew Baker doesn't explain it in so many words. But the logical conclusion based on his report is that Floyd died of a drug overdose, not police brutality. His blood had a fentanyl level of 11 ng/mL. According to the report, “deaths have been certified with levels of 3.” Fentanyl was only one of the drugs that Baker found in Floyd's blood. There was also norfentanyl, 4-ANPP, methamphetamine, cannabinoids, amphetamines, and morphine. I guess he was pretty intent on suicide.

Baker is careful to add, “I am not saying this killed him.” This is woke America after all. Scientists are too afraid to explain that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is too low, 410 parts per million, to warm the Earth significantly. But the media can tell us how anti-science Republicans are. See "Derek Chauvin, Human Sacrifice" by Ann Coulter. PeterKa (talk) 16:09, 5 April 2021 (EDT)

Last summer, the liberal media's line was that Floyd was an otherwise innocent black man who passed a counterfeit bill. Now we know that the incident was triggered by Floyd's drug-fuelled aggression. The story that triggered nationwide riots and demands to "defund the police" has been debunked, but the media still treats it as valid. PeterKa (talk) 00:19, 6 April 2021 (EDT)
The Washington Post has a response to Coulter. The finest reporters in America couldn't rebut her on any substantive point. Instead, they denounce the "he's no angel" argument as racist. Judges generally don't allow discussion of a defendant's criminal history because this could have a "prejudicial effect." Pace WaPo, this has nothing to do with racism. In any case, Coulter didn't make an argument of this type. PeterKa (talk) 01:55, 8 April 2021 (EDT)

The tea leaves say....2022 will be a big Republican year

If you have ever wanted to run for election, think about it now. No support has shifted to the Dems since the last election, when the Dems retained control of the House by a narrow margin. Given historical patterns, the GOP is likely to have a turnout advantage in the midterms. A Harris candidacy in 2024 already sounds like a disaster, even if Biden is a successful president.

Only voter fraud can save the Dems now. They are certainly going give that a good try with HR 1. See "Why very early signs are good for the GOP in 2022" by Harry Enten. PeterKa (talk) 07:44, 7 April 2021 (EDT)

Is there a cheaper way to cool the climate?

What's the most cost effective way to cool the Earth? Most likely, it does not involve cutting carbon dioxide emissions. We can, for example, send soot into the atmosphere to block sunlight. We could also dump iron filings into the ocean to increase algae growth. Do either of these ideas work? The Biden administration has ended research that might give us the answer. See "Test Flight for Sunlight-Blocking Research Is Canceled." Why? "It could distract society from the goal of reducing emissions of planet-warming gases to avoid the worst effects of climate change," as the New York Times puts it. In other words, they are afraid that the idea will work. It was never about the climate. It was always about maximizing human suffering. PeterKa (talk) 09:04, 7 April 2021 (EDT)

Mike Pence, 2024

The stars are aligning for a Mike Pence run for the presidency. Of course, the Republican field for 2024 is already crowded with Mike Pompeo and Ron DeSantis. See "EXCLUSIVE: Pence returns to MAGA world with Trump-backed political group" (Washington Examiner) and "Pence signs a seven-figure book deal, but Trump and other administration alums face a tough market in publishing" (CNN). It seems that both Trump himself and the publishing industry are anxious to be on Pence's good side. After all, Pence has already shown that he can debate circles around Harris.

Matt Gaetz

I'm coming out of my hiatus from CP editing because I'm incredibly disturbed about what's going on with Matt Gaetz right now.

I don't know if he's guilty or not; there's currently not enough hard evidence to establish guilt. But there's an elephant in the room that needs to be addressed. That elephant is the leaked texts between Dilbert creator Scott Adams and Israeli consulate media director Jake Novak, published by the American Conservative on April 2. In the texts, Novak acknowledges that he was involved in soliciting money from Gaetz's father as part of efforts to free FBI agent Robert Levinson, who had been held prisoner in Iran since 2007. Novak denies that he had any knowledge of the allegations against Gaetz until Adams told him about it, and also claims that Gaetz had the images establishing extortion doctored in order to cover himself.

Then it gets even more bizarre. Among the images Gaetz took and released to the public as part of his unofficial counterclaim, is that of an alleged text from former Air Force intelligence officer Bob Kent demanding $25 million from Gaetz's father... sent in March of 2021, a whole year after Levinson's death was announced by his family. Of course, in the same text Kent alleges that Levinson was in fact still alive in the summer of 2020 and may still be alive today, hence the continued efforts to free him.[103]

In light of these revelations, the following questions need to be asked:

1) Was there extortion going on?

2) If the answer to question #1 is "yes," was Novak involved in the efforts to extort?

3) If the answer to question #2 is "yes," was Novak acting on behalf of the Israeli government, his employer?

4) If the answer to question #3 is "yes," what would the Israeli government have to gain from Bob Levinson, a non-Israeli, being freed?

5) Is Bob Levinson still alive?

6) If the answer to question #5 is "no," did the alleged extortion team actually believe otherwise?

7) If the answer to question #6 is "no," what else would the alleged extortion team need $25 million for?

8) Why did the alleged extortion team seek money from Matt Gaetz's father of all people?

I know I can only speculate at this time, but my gut feeling is that this is part of a wider conspiracy to destroy Gaetz's career. After all, he's a prominent critic of American foreign policy in the Middle East. He's anti-Saudi, he opposes war with Iran, he's called George W. Bush a war criminal, and he's repeatedly attacked Liz Cheney over her foreign policy positions. Oh, and did I mention that he's mentioned the corrupting influence of the petrodollar on national television? All of those things are enough to really, really upset the foreign policy establishment, which has answered to Riyadh for nearly 50 years. And then of course there's Israel, who at this point is clearly in on the whole Saudi/neocon-led conspiracy to wage the fake "War on Terror" (because "Iran, Iran, Iran!").

But, who knows? I could be wrong about the whole thing (not about the fake "War on Terror" but about the Matt Gaetz situation). But the FBI needs to get down to the bottom of this... oh, wait. Never mind.--Geopolitician (talk) 19:28, 9 April 2021 (EDT)

Cancel culture takes a swing at Tucker Carlson

Liberal activists want Tucker Carlson, the most popular cable news host in history, taken off the air for using the term "replacement." I had thought this was a pretty everyday kind of word. I'm sure neo-Nazis use it and all, but so do other people. As I understand the media commentary, Tucker would have been way better off if he had used the N word. The word "replacement" is said to be a marker of "white supremacy." No one calls themselves a white supremacist. This is a group that exists only in the minds of the liberal media. When white nationalists demonstrated in support of Confederate statues in Charlottesville, they chanted, "Jews will not replace us."

The theme of Carlson's show was that migrants from Central America were replacing American citizens, not that Jews were replacing anyone. Liberals tell us that the world is overpopulated and that more people is a bad thing. So why do they want to bring migrants to the U.S.? See "ADL calls on Fox News to fire Tucker Carlson over racist comments about 'replacement' theory." Once a Jewish activist group, the ADL is now a subsidiary of Big Wokeness. Here it is going to bat for Biden and the Dems on an issue where there is no Jewish angle.

The Biden administration tells us that we need more immigration for "racial equity." How is this rationale different from "replacement theory"? It's just putting a positive spin on the same idea. PeterKa (talk) 11:14, 10 April 2021 (EDT)
