The "gender pay gap" is not a result of sexism.

Next time some perpetually victimized individual starts shooting their mouth off about sexism and the "gender pay gap", show them this article, or any one of the hundreds (if not thousands) of others just like it that show the pay gap is not based on sexism at all. Rather, it's based on some people (in this case, women) placing a higher value on things besides wages alone in the workplace.

My response to Scott Adams (The Dilbert Guy).

Scott Adams, creator of the comic "Dilbert" (one of my favorites), is a well known conservative, and has his own blog, of course.

He made some points about the Trump presidency so far and I'm inclined to respond:

The economy? Sure it looks decent to us right now, but our national debt is insurmountable, so let's admit that. The government is still too heavily involved in the criminal enterprise that is our healthcare system, and that is over 20% of our economy. Not a good outlook.

North Korea? Right, China does seem to be involved the way we want them too. I'm glad to see some real action on NK for a change. I consider them to be a legitimate national security threat in the near future.

Syria? It's a mess. It was a mess before and after the cruise missile strike and I'm still not sure what our role is or why we should be there.

Illegal immigration? A 70% reduction on illegal immigration sounds great but I'm still looking for some stats to back that up.

Supreme Court? I like Gorsuch for now and I can't imagine him betraying the Constitutionalists on any major issue.

Healthcare? Already commented a bit on healthcare. I'm not optimistic. The last bill he pushed was 0bamacare lite, and that's not acceptable. Hopefully he will brush that aside as a plan that didn't work and will get behind something that will get the government out of the healthcare industry.

Tax reform? We shall see. Here's hoping for some sort of grossly simplified tax system.

Climate change? I hope he approaches this from a business perspective, because if so, he will quickly realize that political demand for renewable energy is still vastly outpacing the technology. Also, the climate change push is heavily politicized. Anytime a politician tries to tell you something is "settled science", make a mental note: They are not to be trusted.

RIP WeaponsMan...

I just found out that WeaponsMan has passed away.

His real name was Kevin O'Brien. He was a former Ranger and former Special Forces soldier. He was a member of the freedom movement and had a very informative and valueable blog. I hope that his family leaves the blog up or archives it or something.

Bomb Damage Assessment (BDA) on the Syrian Airfield shows that Russia Lied.

Russia and Syria claimed that only 23 out of 59 US Tomahawk Cruise Missiles actually impacted their targets, and the rest landed somewhere in the desert. No evidence was provided to back up this assertion, but many, I'd say most, people (on the Internet) were more than willing to believe it.

I stated on many Internet forums and blog comment sections that while I didn't necessarily support the action or see a need for it, I was very surprised that our targeting systems would fail at such a rate. I also asked why we would be inclined to believe a BDA from Russia or Syria any more than our own BDA. I suggested they were lying and that our Tomahawks probably had an accuracy rate of more like 99%. The Russian government has a history of lying that trumps our own government's.

Turns out I was correct. Or rather, 98.3% is correct. Wouldn't you know, someone who's job it was to know our own capabilities vs the enemy's capabilities and who's job it was to detect lies, didn't just jump on the "America sucks at everything" bandwagon. And don't think I wasn't ridiculed a bit for not just believing everything Russia said about our strike.

A satellite photo available to the public for your own BDA:

Enough patting myself on the back...

Apparently, we can see from public satelitte technology that at least 58 of the 59 cruise missiles did in fact hit their targets. The relative lack of damage to the airfield wasn't caused by the missiles missing their targets, but by the fact that a Tomahawk cruise missile, being a surgical strike weapon, doesn't have that big of an explosive warhead at all, the warhead weighing less than 250lbs. Yes, that is a SMALL explosive warhead. It's not going to penetrate earth, it's not going to wipe out double hardened aircraft hangars, it's not going to permanently destroy an entire airfield.

They're simply not made to do the things that the public apparently expected them to do.

In this case, I suppose they really were used to send a message, even if I don't necessarily support the action or the location of the action.

Shooting in Fresno.

Four people dead and two wounded in a shooting in Fresno, Kalifornia.

Shooter was yelling "Allahu Akbar".

Shooter answers to "Muhammad".

Shooter isn't white in any way.

Shooting happened in the gun-free utopia of Kalifornia.

Better read the story while it's here. Won't be easy to find for long.

Court rulings on taxes.

"Any one may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes."

Helvering v. Gregory, 69 F.2d 809, 810-11 (2d Cir. 1934).

"Over and over again courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging one's affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everybody does so, rich or poor; and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands: taxes are enforced exactions, not voluntary contributions. To demand more in the name of morals is mere cant."

Commissioner v. Newman, 159 F2d 848 (1947).

A final warning to the left.

Don't force our hand, you won't like the result.

That is not a threat. It's a plea. Law enforcement has been minimally effective at stopping your violent acts. They will be grossly ineffective at stopping our acts of defense.

Thanks to WRSA and Men of the West for posting the article. Both blogs MUST be on your daily reading.

Insecurity of American Telecommunications.

When I was in the military, we sometimes used a sophisticated piece of equipment called "Stingray" to hunt down Taliban and AQ targets. It's entirely possible at this point that your local law enforcement could be rolling around using one of these to vacuum up info on anyone who comes too close, which could be as far as 5km or more if they're willing to crank up the signal output. Our telecommunications systems in the US (and around the world) are grossly insecure and in need of a major security overhaul.

Aesop on the Syria missile attack.

Aesop at The Raconteurre Report says to settle down and take a breath on the Tomahawk missile attack against Syria. I have already said that I don't support the action but I think I can endorse most of Aesop's message here. My rebuttals:

1.) There were a lot of us Liberty-minded types complaining about having troops in Syria as far back as a few years ago. We've had Special Forces soldiers there since nearly the beginning of hostilities (because our SF is everywhere). During the 0bama years, the republican voting bloc was indignant and the democrats were indifferent. Now it's Trump commanding the forces, so the indignant and indifferent are flipped. But the people who are truly Liberty minded did not support our involvement in the Syrian mess, and still don't.

2.) We already know that the last time there was a big chemical attack, the blame was placed on Assad and it turned out to be ISIS. We were offered no evidence that Assad conducted that attack. This time, we have been told that we've intercepted comms that confirm Assad's regime is at fault. I have no problem believing that Assad would do something like this and I have no problem believing that he has the weapons. I think the problem is that the US government is the one telling us these things, and a lot of people have a problem believing the info due to the source, no matter how easy it is to believe the info itself.

3.) Yes, Middle Eastern dictators are psychotic and unpredictable. I have no problem believing Assad would use chemical weapons against his people, though I'm not sure how many of "his people" are also members of ISIS. Another trait of many Middle Eastern dictators who run secular governments is the ability to keep Islamic extremism in check. Look at Iraq and Libya. What were those countries before we deposed Saddam and Qaddafi? They were secular dictatorships where Islamic extremism was held in check thanks to the heavy tactics used against them if they popped their heads up. What are those countries now after we took out the secular dictators? Hotbeds of Islamic extremism. Training grounds. Jihadi havens. Before the "Arab Spring", Syria was a fairly stable country run by a dictator that we didn't like, but had tolerated, at the least. The Christians in Syria were at least able to live in peace and at the same time worship openly as Christians. What will Syria be if we continue to oppose him. I'm not saying that we need to buddy up with him and help him fight. I'm just saying that those 59 cruise missiles should have been aimed at ISIS or AQ fighters. Not at the guy fighting them, even if we don't like him.

4.) I agree that Putin is not going to go to WWIII over Syria. Not even close.

5.) I agree that the only people less trustworthy than American government officials, are Russian government officials. One beef I have with the American Liberty movement is how eager they are to trust Russian info. You don't have to trust the US government but it would behoove us to also distrust the Russian government.

6.) Despite the fact that the Mid-East has been a crap shoot for a long time, we can easily identify a few countries where some stability was acheived, or at least, where Islamic savages were not able to operate with ease. Jordan is one example. Iraq and Libya were examples, and so was Syria. The region as a whole sucks, but our efforts to improve some of those places have ended up making them worse. Worse for us, that is, by allowing a vacuum where Islamic savages have moved in.

I can get on board with Aesop's summary that a message was sent by Trump when he launched those cruise missiles (and dropped the MOAB on ISIS in Afghanistan). I don't think anyone doubts that he will use military power when he needs to, and that's a good message. The MOAB strike was a great move. But the cruise missiles could have had much, much better targets. I personally wish they'd have identified a dozen or so ISIS target inside Syria and hit them instead. It would have signaled a willingness to hit ISIS inside any borders anywhere.

Now for MY summary, this cruise missile attack on Assad could pass as a small tactical event with a nice message as long as we don't grow our presence in Syria and start sinking more and more money and resources into it. That's how I hope it goes.

Q&A on the situation with North Korea.

Here I will list a series of questions that I have been asked by people I know regarding the situation with North Korea. I spent some time living in South Korea while I was in the Army, including time at the US Army Second Infantry Division HQ and some time at the US Special Operations Command Korea (SOCKOR). I'll be paraphrasing some of the questions.

Q: Is the NK military capable of striking the US mainland with a nuclear weapon?

A: When I was in Korea, our best intelligence estimates had them about seven years away from possessing the capability to land an ICBM inside the continental US. That's been about five years ago, and keep in mind that 0bama did nothing to advance our interests in the Far East. My estimate at this point is that they're about 18-24 months away from being able to do that, but it's also possible that they could get lucky enough to make it happen now.

It takes more than just having a missile capable of that distance though. You've got to have the targeting system to get it done. It's one thing to launch a missile at a target as big as North America and hitting it. It's another thing entirely to make it land inside the target zone you're looking for. Los Angeles might be a big city, but it's a small target for an ICBM. On top of that, Washington DC or NYC might as well be on the other side of the planet from LA.

Q: Are they capable of arming an ICBM with a nuclear warhead?

A: As it stands right now, the NK military does not have the ability to produced a mountable nuclear weapon. Building a nuclear device for underground testing is what they've done a few times recently, but the science behind the explosive reaction is the only similarity between testing and actually mounting a deliverable nuclear device to an ICBM.

Q: How would the US defend itself against a nuclear attack from NK?

A: The US has the most advanced anti-missile defense systems in the world. Our systems, including THAAD and the Aegis Missile Defense System, are the most capable anti-missile systems in the world. While these systems are not perfect or foolproof, I have confidence that any launch by NK could be defended against. One reason is that if or when NK launches an ICBM, it's not likely to be more than one or two. The odds of our systems being overwhelmed by numbers is nil.

Q: Is the US the most likely nation target of NK?

A: It's hard to say as events continue to develop, but historically, South Korea and Japan have been more of a target than the US. With that said, new developments in range capabilities will begin to negate our advantage of being an ocean away from the Korean Peninsula.

Q: If war on the peninsula broke out, what would that look like?

A: A full scale, conventional war on the Korean Peninsula would be immediately jump to number one in the biggest in the world today. The initial artillery salvos on both sides would inflict massive damage and casualties. The North Koreans have threatened civilian targets for decades, which would be tantamount to an act of desperation right away. NK would attempt to use hordes of small, light aircraft to dump thousands of special operations forces (SOF) all over the South. Many of them would be shot down and many would die or get wounded on the jump. The US Army Second Infantry Division in Korea has a motto of "Fight Tonight", and they are always to do so. The US Air Force would likely begin bombing targets inside NK and the Navy carrier groups enroute as we speak would begin running missions to shoot down NK aircraft and provide air support for ground troops.

Aside from some of those things we know, we don't know exactly what it would look like considering the mindset of NK forces. It's sure to say that there would be numbers of NK military members who would be looking for an opportunity to defect. Should these defections be on a moderate to large scale, that will play a significant role.

What I can say for sure is that we can expect large amounts of casualties and damage from the initial artillery barrages. The amount of artillery ordinance both sides have aimed at each other on any given day is staggering.

Q: Do you consider NK to be a credible threat to US national security?

A: Yes, I do. They have made many serious threats toward the US for years and are actively pursuing the means to carry out exactly what they are threatening. If they do not have the ability to do those things today, they will in the near future.

Law enforcement do not have any place in the gun rights discussion.

If society is so dangerous that police have to have body armor, pistols, rifles, shotguns, armored vehicles, bulletproof windows in cars, dogs, etc., then is it really too much to ask that we be able to carry just a pistol without having to request permission and risk being denied?

Additionally, law enforcement should not be involved in any discussion about citizens having the right to carry a weapon, concealed or openly, with or without a permit. Members of law enforcement have no place in the discussion because their main concern is making their own job easier. Your rights are very far down their list of concerns.

Gun legislation in Florida is running out of time.

There are 18 days left in the 2017 Florida legislative session and there are well over a dozen pro-gun bills that have been proposed in the House of Representatives and in the Senate. Unfortunately, the Senate has made almost zero progress on most of these pro-gun bills and the House has spent most of it's time waiting on the Senate to send them their passed bills.

The result is that once again, Florida will be nearly stagnant on legislation that affects law abiding gun owners. We pride ourselves on being a very gun friendly state but we can't even pass some simple, common sense, gun Liberty legislation without a major knife fight with what is supposed to the friendly party members (Miguel Diaz de La Portilla and Anitere Flores, specifically).

If a state becomes stagnant and fails to move forward on gun liberties, eventually it will start moving backwards. Have any of you contacted any of the Florida Senators? We are nearly out of time this year, and next year is an election year, which basically means that only minor gun related bills will have any chance to see a committee meeting. We've got to move the ball forward in anticipation of an anti-Liberty backlash in 2018 and 2019.

Happy Easter, Praise the Resurrection of Jesus!

I don't believe we should be bombing the Assad government.

Some short time ago it appears that Bashar Al Assad may have used chemical weapons against "his people". I'm not sure who got hit and what they were hit with. Was it combatants? ISIS? AQ? "Innocent" civilians? In response, Trump ordered the US Navy to strike a Syrian airbase where the chemical weapons were supposedly launched from. 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from US Navy destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea and at least 23 directly hit the airbase.

I do not support this action. First, we have no money.

Second, the war in Syria is a complete mess and as it stands right now, we're are opposing Assad, who is opposing ISIS and AQ. Does that mean we're are supporting ISIS and AQ? We have trained, supplied, equipped and armed "moderate rebels" in the region who have turned out to be not so moderate. Many have in fact turned out to be straight up AQ and ISIS fighters.

Third, Assad is NOT a threat to our national security in any way.

If Trump wants to send a message to the world that America is back and we are once again the leader of the "free world" and are not afraid to take action when action is needed, then I am all for sending that message. 0bama was a limp wristed fool. We need a strong leader to be that leader of the free world that the POTUS is supposed to be.

Bombing Syria was the wrong action in the wrong situation for a message to be sent. Wrong target, wrong method. Try again.

2015 NYT article on the Clinton's Russian connections.

This 2015 article from the New York Times details the dealings between the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton's themselves and the Russian government.

During Hillary Clinton's time as Secretary of State, she allowed the Russian government to come into control over 20% of the US government's Uranium production through a company called Uranium One.

This is a factual, documented example of Hillary having less than desirable political and monetary connections to the Russian government. Who would desire for the Russian government, or any foreign government, to have control over 20% of US Uranium production? Where were the indignant leftists when this was happening?

I'm still waiting on actual evidence of Trump's Russian connections. And before you say it, no... His election victory itself is not evidence.

Huffington Post writer advocates barring white men from voting.

At least they're being honest.

When your enemy tells you things like this, you have to believe that they will make it happen. Don't brush it off.

Update on 4/18/2017: Apparently this article was written as a hoax to fool the Huffington post into publishing such nonsense (that all white men should be stripped of their right to vote for at least a few decades to allow a retraining of the next generation of white men to be less masculine, less bigoted and less white), and it worked. HuffPo published the nonsensical and completely racist (anti-white) and sexist (anti-male) article without giving it a second glance. The author, who is not named Shelley Garland (that person does not exist), really laid it on thick and may have a future as a writer for satire sites such as The Onion or DuffelBlog.

I could simply delete this post and replace it with a brief explanation, or no explanation, but I'm going to leave it. I'm not entirely sure this even qualifies as a hoax. The article was deliberately written by an actual person, and HuffPo published it on their actual website. They claim not to necessarily endorse or support all of the views on their sites, but what does that even mean? If it's published on YOUR website, then it's YOUR content, unless you're specifically publishing it to show the other side of the spectrum, in which case, you make that obvious. HuffPo simply published this nonsense piece about removing the right of white men to vote as if it was a legitimate article written by one of their contributors.

I wonder if we got a list of all of their "contributors" and then polled them on who they voted for in the last one or two elections, what result would we get? I bet I can guess...

What if the piece had been written about black men? Or Hispanic women? Or all women? Would HuffPo publish that with a simple "we don't necessarily endorse every point of view in this article..."  disclaimer? Of course not!

The link to the article may be dead but the point about the political leanings of HuffPo is made crystal clear, as usual.

How to Shoot a Pistol from world champion Jerry Miculek.

The greatest pistol shooter in the world on how to shoot a pistol.

My add on: Carry a "fighting pistol" if possible. A 9mm or larger, something with a decent ammo capacity. Obviously, whatever you've got is going to be what you've got, but in a gunfight, you don't want to be walking around with 6 or 7 rounds. Or when those three guys kick in your front door, 10 rounds may not be good enough.

With that said, wardrobe and daily activities might not allow you to always have a giant pistol with a bunch of spare mags on you. That's why I carry a Glock 19 now instead of the Glock 17 like I used to. Whatever you carry, train CORRECTLY and OFTEN.

The story of working class Germans in Jamaica

The story of working class Germans in Jamaica - By David Ritter

The vague assertion, accusation, insult or narrative of white privilege is something I hear all too often.
I hear this phrase chimed out from the mass media outlets, academic circles, and I find it working its way into the vocabulary of common people.
What does this even mean? Frankly it does not mean a damn thing.
It is a new way of screaming racist. The term racist is getting horribly played out so now the neo left needs to jazz up its political vocabulary to find new ways to stigmatize its opposition and silence dissenting information and views that complicate its flimsy agenda and narrative.
Let me be clear I do not feel that people of European,Caucasian,white derivation do not have a level of "privilege" within certain situations, context, eras of history, or circles but people of all ethnic,racial,national derivations can find a certain level or "privilege" within certain time periods, social circles, places ect.
I simply feel this term "white privilege" should be scrutinized and examined rather than accepted as a mindless mantra that we accept without thought or criticism.
I feel the term is used as more of a weapon than a genuine means of discussion.
I feel it is a code word that most often translates to " Shut up! your opinion is less valuable based on your racial categorization"
In the year 2010 I traveled to a small village in the mountains of Jamaica called Seaford Town.
This small rural farming community was colloquially known by many locals as German Town and when one spends a few hours in the village you will see why.
This village was founded in the year 1835 by a group of German migrants who were granted the land by a British land owner named Lord Seaford.
The Germans who came to Jamaica during this time period were generally poor and middle working class people.
Most published historians and authors assert that these migrants came under conditions of indentured labor,  though there seems to be a massive revision of this narrative in recent years by Caribbean and Black studies professors who insist that these people were never under conditions of indentureship or provided any labor to the Jamaican economic system in any way.
I recorded my first trip to Seaford Town and was able to complete a 10 minute documentary on the history of this village and the modern day remnants of German heritage living on within the village to this day.
German style ginger bread homes, structures, still live on within this village.
Many residents are of German derivation to this day as well.
It is not uncommon to meet people in the village with names like Graskopf, Hacker, and Eldemire.
There still is a portion of this village that is fully of European derivation and some argue fully/ primarily of German derivation.
Few people want to mention this in their publications and some people often become very flustered and angry to even hear this mentioned.  The fact that any Jamaican could still be considered white often sends many people who viewed my documentary into a rage or a snarky retort with claims such as "everyone in Jamaica is mixed race" or the famous " Jamaica is a color blind melting pot race does not exist in Jamaica."
Truth be told Jamaica does have a small minority of people who still count themselves as "white" meaning primarily or fully of European derivation.
This demographic does not equal more than 2 percent or some stats claim 3 percent.
According to assertions of various other statistics whites equate to 0.2 percent of the population.
The first documentary I shot featured two Seaford Town residents who were fully or primarily of German roots sharing their knowledge of the history of their village.
The documentary features German structural remnants and highlighting the few German cultural attributes that are still living on amongst the people of Seaford Town.
The people interviewed also shared their modern day experiences within Jamaica.
Their thoughts and feeling on Jamaican life, what being a Jamaican meant to them, how they felt about their German roots and the extremely taboo subject of racial bigotry.
I posted this 10 minute piece to you tube in 2011 after touring the project at art centers, film festivals and Universities.
The reaction was huge and mostly positive many Jamaicans and people all over the world found this village to be an amazing place with historic worth and value however there was a portion of the audience who went into fits of hostility.
I was later contacted by a production company that wanted me to produce a full length documentary on this village and in 2011 I decided to return to interview as many residents as possible and capture as many relevant scenes as I could.
One thing that is interesting about this village is that all of the older residents who grew up in the village in the early to middle part of the 20th century told me that when they were living in Seaford Town that almost all of the residents of the village were of European, German derivation.
One resident told me " when I was visiting the school over there it was all white children in the school. They were barefooted and they were poor but it was all white children."
The village according to most publications and assertions from the residents state that this village was a German descended and white majority village until the 1970s/ 1980s
Over the past several decades the German descended and white population has decreased within the village and more often people are of multi racial derivation and African derivation.
The population of Seaford Town maintained a close knit community and unintentionally or intentionally depending on who you ask this village remained a mostly German descended enclave until the later part of the 20th century.
Though the German heritage has faded and this village is a culturally Jamaican village, German heritage does live on in various subtle ways and my documentation exemplified this throughout the project.
The Germans who came to Jamaica in the 1830s came under economically trying circumstances and faced a massive death toll and difficulty.
Their descendant's faced economic trials and hardship the same as any other rural Jamaican community and through out the years many found advancement economically within Jamaica and various parts of the world.
Some residents have built good working middle class lifestyles others still struggle economically but most are proud farmers and crafts men who are independent people who are strong and self reliant.
What is so controversial about this story or the documentary I shot on this village?
Where to begin! I began a screening and lecture tour for this documentary that started in 2012 and has continued on and off over the years.
As I began screening and lecturing and sharing this project at various cultural centers, Universities and art house cinemas through out Canada, the USA, Jamaica, Germany and England we have been met by a overwhelmingly positive response from Jamaicans, Germans and people of all ethnic and national derivations internationally but the oligarchs of German, Jamaican and US society often have had anything but kind things to say about me, the documentary or Seaford Town.
A Black studies professor from John Hopkins University came to one of my lectures at Towson University and began to attack the documentary for mentioning that most historians and publications assert that the Germans who migrated to Jamaica in the 1830s came under conditions of indentureship.
I simply stated my sources and that I found not one dissenting view amongst any other historian because all dissenting historians had no published works that I could find.
He then said that the people I interviewed were not capable of teaching the audience anything and were ignorant.
He later stated that nothing could be gained by watching this documentary and that the audience learned nothing.
I decided to ask the audience what they had learned this evening and gained from the documentary. Hands raised people all shared what they had learned.
One young man said he was amazed to see how Jamaica had so many different cultures and races that made up its populace and how these cultures helped contribute to Jamaica.
One German history professor claimed that this was the first time she had ever heard of any German history within the context of Jamaica and found it fascinating.
One young woman stood to her feet and looked this African studies professor in his eyes and said that she was a descendant of one of the families from Seaford Town and that this documentary accurately portrayed the life of the people within the village and that his claims that the thoughts and feeling's of the residents not being worthy of being recorded sickened her and found his claims to be erroneous and rude.
He shut his mouth for the rest of the event and when I brought up how this film challenges the concept of "white privilege" he stood up and waddled out of the auditorium.
I then screened this film at the Institute Of Jamaica in Kingston.
We had slander and attack coming from members of the audience many of whom were students and faculty from the University Of The West Indies.
One young woman said that this village was no different from any other Jamaican village and that there was no point to watching it.
I asked her how many Jamaican villages maintain German cultural retention, German historic structures and maintained a white majority village with residents with names like Hans Groskopf?
She then replied with the classic retort that Jamaica is a color blind society and very multicultural in all communities.
I told her she lived in a alternate reality that demonstrative evidence past and present could prove as a false perception rooted in cognitive dissonance.
No statistical data shows that all of Jamaican society is adhering to racial relativism nor does day to day life show this.
All one has to do is look around you. Open the door and step outside.
Listen to the music of Sizzla and his famous statement he made at the Reggae SunSplash music festival "burn all white people"  Bob Marley singing songs of African pride, Peter Tosh promoting black nationalism.
Jamaica is a Black/ African descended majority by 90-93 percent of the population and many people are proud of this.
I then asked the young woman why is it louis Farrakhana a black nationalist leader annually visits Jamaica and is wined and dined by Jamaican academics, heads of media and state? Why is he toasted and met by legions of proud Jamaicans at his lectures at the University of the west indies and never met with the criticism or scrutiny that is being launched towards me?
Why is it that a man who has openly stated that all whites deserve to die and that they should all be dragged to hell is given such esteem within Jamaican society and never faces even half of the criticism I have been faced with within Jamaica?
The crowd began to hiss and shout.
I then noted that several Jamaican national heroes were in fact black nationalists such as Marcus Garvey.
Why is it so common to drive down the street in Kingston and find murals sporting depictions of Malcolm X? These Miss are not the hallmarks of a racially relativistic society I said.
Another woman then stood up and said you made white society look as if it was poor when in fact whites control a disproportionate amount of wealth in Jamaican society.
I told the woman that I find it strange that we just had several people claim Seaford Town was no different than any other village yet we have complaints from people seeing that poverty was a reality for some of its residents. Is poverty not an issue for many Jamaican rural communities and farmers?
It also interesting I told the woman how we just heard from so many people here today that Jamaica has no concept of race yet you feel a certain race holds more wealth than all others?
Are we now admitting that Jamaica does in fact have a concept of race? Further more I am not discussing " white society" within this documentary I am discussing the German history and heritage of Seaford Town Jamaica. White people are not a monolithic group with a history and experience that is indistinguishable from one another.
The documentary was about Seaford Town and its residents not "white society."
I then said the triggering statement again " I feel this documentary can confront the over simplified concepts of white privilege."
The howls and screams began to chime out from the now very agitated segment of the audience.
I said that Orwell stated that the more society drifts from the truth the more it will hate those who speak it.
Orwell also said that there will come a time when the most intelligent of us will simply have to state the obvious.
I later quoted Orwell and said that he predicted that people would be indoctrinated with a socially engineered concept known as double think and explained how this was a form of institutionalized hypocrisy.
A way of destroying logic as we know it when people will hold two differing views at the exact same time and will switch from one to the other within seconds and not even be aware that they are contradicting themselves.
Someone from the audience asked why I kept quoting an " obscure author that nobody has heard of" they then said " do you have any original ideas of your own" I said " I feel we stand on the shoulders of giants and I am quoting a man more astute than I but I feel his teachings are relevant because Jamaica has been steeped in Fabian socialism the ideology of the ruling political party within Jamaica and Orwell was primarily warning the public of the dangers of Fabian socialism and the adverse affects social engineering can have on a society and I think we are seeing examples of this right now before us."
The event soon came to a close and a portion of the audience walked out of the event with a rage.
The next day I began getting emails from Jamaicans who were in the audience.
They said they were shocked to see such hostility and that they wondered if I was black would they have treated me different.
I asked one of the people who emailed me why he did not stand up to these insane ideals and people shouting down the event.
He said I need to live in Jamaica and live in peace.

Herschel's word on the Lake City cop who got away with murder.

A while back in Lake City, Florida, officers were searching for a suspect who had fled to a neighborhood in the area. They were on foot at an apartment building and the officers tactically surrounded a unit and "banged" on the door. When the tenant answered the door, the only thing he saw was guns pointed in his face. Despite there being no warrant and despite the man having no connection to any criminal events, the officers shot and killed him. The Florida Courts ruled this to be lawful, for some idiotic reason.

Here is the word from Herschel at the Captain's Journal, and I agree with every word of it.

Home raids need to be stopped or drastically reduced. Do we really need to do a tactical, military-style surprise raid on someone's house because they ran? Or because you think they have weed? If it's so damn important that the police "go home safe at the end of the day", then why so much overkill? Is it to remind us how powerful the police are over us?

What about our need as free citizens to feel secure in our own homes?

Educated elites say sex with children is normal.

First, we've been made to believe that gays make up a large part of society, despite CDC research showing that less than 2% of the US population identifies as homosexual. Now a large part of the media is devoted to convincing us that the gay lifestyle is preferable and healthy.

Then it was the transgender thing, we are supposed to believe that there are tens of millions of transgenders "hiding in the shadows" of society, horribly damaged by our mean spirited bathroom door signs and our bigoted utterances of the words "male" and "female". Assuming someone's "gender identity" is now considered a "microagression".

For several years, Liberty bloggers and message board commenters have been predicting the attempt to normalize adult sex with children, and it will begin with the "educated elites" telling us first, that arousal from sexual feelings toward children is normal.

We are a bit behind the curve. Seems they started three years ago.

They will start by telling us the feelings are normal. Then they'll move onto telling us that the sexual acts CAN be committed in a safe and healthy way, and they'll tell us how. Then they will tell us that as long as the child, ANY child, consents, then it's alright. They'll move to decriminalize, or even legalize some sexual acts with children and then there will be a push to eliminate the age of consent (AOC), or perhaps just drop it so low as to make it pointless to even have an AOC.

The Muslims will support this. The progressive "liberals" will support this. The elites will support this, probably because many of the elites are committing the acts themselves already.

Do not run and hide from this. Do not ignore it. We fight, or else they will get our children, or our grandchildren. You might not accept this, but if we don't stamp this out, eventually the people in your family line WILL accept it and the children will suffer for it.

The elites who are in charge are evil, and they are pushing us toward a one world government system, a new world order. They want it all, and that includes the innocence of children.

Karl Denninger has some great ideas for a healthcare bill.

Karl Denninger at The Market Ticket has some great ideas for a replacement healthcare bill.

As a registered nurse in a hospital in a mid-sized American city, I agree that these changes are not only common sense, but will simplify the entire health system and benefit the consumer.

Would you ever agree to buy a product or service BEFORE the seller even gives a rough estimate of the price?

Yes you would. You do it every time you see a doctor or go to an emergency room or have a surgery.

Brushbeater on keeping your weapon going.

Brushbeater gives a rundown on some things you can do to keep your weapon in the fight.

Talking about spare parts and other logistics might not be fun or exciting, but when the SHTF and you come back home from a skirmish to find that you busted a trigger spring or broke a firing pin, you'll be happy that you have that kit of spare parts that you've already tested and know will work.

And no, "just buy an AK" or "just buy a Glock" isn't going to solve the problem. As Brushbeater states in the article, every single weapon has it's failure points. We have not yet discovered the perfect weapon that is unbreakable and never needs maintenance.

Food for thought (and research).

Everyone has heard of the Christian Crusades into the Middle East.

But have you learned about the numerous Islamic military campaigns into Europe that preceded the Crusades? You know, when the Muslims conquered ALL of Spain and then nearly conquered ALL of Gaul (France) before Charles Martel defeated them at the Battle of Tours? Ever read about the atrocities inflicted upon the Europeans during those centuries?

Research. The schools in America are not allowed to talk about that stuff...

Because, um, diversity!

Feminist: Make STEM classes "less competitive" to attract more women students.

According to a peer-reviewed paper written by neo-feminist, we need to make science, tech, engineering and math classes easier and less competitive in order to attract more female students and allow them to have a higher level of success in these STEM classes.

Ironically, she doesn't see the overt sexism in her idea. She states that even the language used in the syllabus must be made "more friendly" (I gather she means intellectually simpler so as to be less intimidating for emotionally fragile women) in order to avoiding scaring women away.

Connecticut may allow weaponized police drones.

Apparently, the state of Connecticut thinks it's alright for the police to weaponized their drones.

If you don't see an obvious problem with this, you, or your mindset and people who share it, are a part of the problem. Don't hand me that "if you're following the law, you have nothing to worry about" BS.

Following the law didn't work for this man.

Or this man.

Or this family.

Or this woman and her daughters.

I don't have time to keep going. There are hundreds of these stories, perhaps thousands just from the last few years. So, no. Following the "law" is not always good enough to avoid being harrassed, assaulted or even killed by the police. In addition, the police who commit these idiotic mistakes will be investigated by other cops, because apparently we just can't understand, blah blah blah.

The police in the US have a perception problem and weaponized drones aren't going to help that.

I've heard that a 12 gauge loaded with 00 Buckshot works wonders on these drones.

Social Justice Warriors Do Not Care About Anything That Matters

Social justice warriors do not care about anything that matters - By David Ritter

While the average 18-35 year old in the USA and EU controlled Europe is busy having a fit about a lone christian baker not baking a cake for a gay wedding, and acting as if this is a massive act of oppression, Christians are facing genocide in Iraq and Syria.
I notice how the leftist social justice crowd who is sensitive to any level of inequality is so silent and indifferent to the lives of Christian and Yazidi people. Across the middle east, these people are facing mass slaughter and horrific acts of abuse at the hands of Islamic extremists.
Never have I seen the leftist social justice crowd march, protest " stand in solidarity" with the Christian demographics facing horrific violence at the hands of ISIS.
Is it because their echo chamber leftist media outlets report little to nothing on the situation? Is it because Christianity is deemed evil in the minds of leftist's and they could care less about its followers being exterminated? Is it because the Islamophilia the left promotes has eclipsed their concern for other demographics? Is it because leftist social justice warriors only act brave when they know the people they protest are not going to decapitate them or machine gun them down?
Frankly the left is dominated by weak people. Physically and mentally weak and pathetic.
I went to Iraq/ Kurdistan to stand with the Christian militias in their fight against ISIS.
While I was there I captured on video an amazing Christian village called Havresc that has been fighting ISIS and surviving with a militia of no more than 22 men.

Zerogov on getting rid of the smart phones.

Bill Buppert says dropping a smart phone in favor of a dumb phone will help you in life, he's got some evidence to back it up, and I think he's correct. Disconnecting from cable, satellite and constant smart phone access will change you for the better.

Currently my family has cut off cable and satellite. Already the effects are manifest and appreciated. Smart phones next? Hopefully.

Please assist with gun Liberty in Florida.

Florida is looked at by many other states when it comes to gun laws. We have the most permit carriers and something like 37 states honor our permits. We are nicknamed the "Gunshine State" for a reason. But we require some assistance.

We have a large number of pro-gun bills moving through our state Senate in Tallahassee at this moment and nearly all of them require passage through the Senate Judiciary Committee. Republicans hold the majority in this committee 5-4.

Sounds good, but not so. One member of the committee, Republican Senator Anitere Flores (Miami) is stonewalling all pro-gun bills by threatening to side with the Democrats, giving them a 5-4 majority and effectively killing all pro-gun bills this session, including open carry (SB 644) and campus carry (SB 622).

At this point, Senate President Joe Negron may have to intervene to overstep this stonewalling. Three Legislative sessions in a row have seen a Republican Senator block movement of pro-gun bills in the Florida Senate. We must get large amounts of correspondence to the Senate President and to Senator Flores if we hope to advance gun liberties in Florida. (Senate President) (Anti-gun Senator) (Judiciary Committee Chairman and author of most of the pro-gun bills in the 2017 session)

Any assistance is appreciated. Please feel free to copy and paste this entire post and post it all over the Internet. My goal is to force action by overwhelming our senators will communications supporting gun liberties in Florida. Bloomberg's anti-gun groups have been attending every single committee meeting and are in close contact with Flores. We have to overcome that. Please assist.

Drudge says Rand Paul is the best Senator.

Matt Drudge, of the Drudge Report, says that Rand Paul is America's best Senator.

I heartily agree with him. I wish Matt Drudge had been on Rand's bandwagon (Did I just invent the "RandWagon" or is that already a thing?) instead of the Trump Train.

Rand 2020?

Please add the Drudge Report to your daily reading. America's most influential news aggregation site. Directly influenced daily politics due to high daily readership in the tens of millions. You'll see the stories the MSM is trying to hide. If you consider yourself to be conservative, constitutionalist, libertarian, republican, etc, there is no excuse for not reading Drudge. If you're socialist, democrat, progressive, communist, etc. then I suggest taking a look to learn the truth.

AR-15 used for home defense in Arizona.

Just show this story to anyone who tells us that an AR-15 is poorly suited for home defense.

Three burglars, two of them armed, were shot and killed after they broke into someone's home. The weapon used by the resident was an AR-15 rifle.

Do you want to be carrying a pump action 12 gauge shotgun with five rounds when three burglars break into your house? Is your six-shooter revolver going to suffice? What about that 1911 with the seven round magazine? Can these do the job? Sure, but there are ammo capacity issues there. Not so with an AR-15.

Do not remain silent.

"It is enough for students to be like their teachers, and servants like their masters. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebul, how much more the members of his household! So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs."

Matthew 10:25-27 NIV

Kim Du Toit on men (and women).

Please read all of this piece from Kim Du Toit about the "pussification" of men in American (and European) society.

You don't have to agree with all of it or even like what it says, but you need to understand what it says and where it's coming from. And keep the "your sexist" comments to yourself because no one around these parts really cares anymore, and your words aren't going to change what we do anymore.

And no, I am not talking to "women" in general. I'm talking to feminists, statists, progressives, left-wingers and collectivists. If that's you, we are finished listening to you. Now you get to listen to us.

Here's your sign.

If it becomes necessary in your society to have the sign you see below posted up anywhere at all, then your society and your culture is probably in big trouble already.

Trump threatens to leave 0bamacare in place of Republicans don't pass the AHCA.

Not sure what to say about this.

0bamacare AND the AHCA are both bad deals for the American people.

Both bills mandate, DICTATE to the American people that they must purchase health insurance. Both bills also dictate that insurance companies must cover certain types of healthcare.

When you are telling a business (insurance companies) that they must provide a certain type of product (coverage for certain types of healthcare), and then you mandate that the people have no choice but to purchase that product, what do you think happens to the quality of the product? What happens to the price?

The insurance companies have no incentive to provide a better product at a better price when they know the people are being forced to buy, and when the companies have been stripped/relieved of the ability/opportunity/responsibility to improve their quality and prices, the quality will go down and the price will go up.

My "as services are rendered" out-of-pocket cost for a simple ER visit at the hospital where I work is now $350, whereas eight years ago it was $50, and there is no accompanying increase in services provided or quality of care.

Before you claim this is just personal, anecdotal experience:

1. You are correct. It is just personal and anecdotal, so I also provide this evidence. Boom. No longer just personal and anecdotal.

2. Anecdotal evidence might not be sufficient to make broad claims, but anecdotal experiences are how people live their lives and make decisions for themselves.

CIA whistleblower says he came forward two years ago and was "blown off".

Dennis Montgomery is the name of a former CIA and NSA contractor (NSA contractor? Sound familiar? Seems that NSA contractors have a lot to tell us...) who claims that he came forward via legal channels to blow the whistle on illegal surveillance activities by the 0bama administration.

Montgomery claims that the 0bama Administration was using the CIA and NSA to collect information on Supreme Court Justices, judges and prominent business people, to include Donald Trump. He also claims that the administration used the intelligence agencies to tamper with polls in Florida to ensure 0bama's reelection. He says he has proof, and he presented it to the FBI.

Montgomery then presented his evidence to Freedom Watch and Judicial Watch founder, Larry Klayman, and Klayman has presented this letter to Congress with the details that the FBI previously ignored.

How much more proof do we need? How much more are we going to stand for? Do we simply not know what to do as a people about this sort of behavior on the part of our elected officials?

There is no voting our way out of this.

Four are dead in London terrorist attack.

Go on, act shocked.

Let yourself be "shaken" by it.

Feel "saddened".

But whatever you do, DON'T acknowledge the reality of the attacker's belief system and UNDER NO CURCUMSTANCES should you EVEN CONTEMPLATE that this might possibly become the norm in the US.

It could NEVER happen here.

Besides, you don't want to be labeled a BIGOT, do you?

Feminism may be responsible for the Muslim troubles in the West.

As the Z Man asserts, feminism (the variety that believes abortion is a natural right, not the ones who marched for the vote) may be to blame for the pending destruction of Western civilization by the MENA Muslim hordes.

He states that men and women are psychologically different from each other.

What?! How dare he say that?! (Sarcasm)

Anyway, the position is that women are programmed to lean toward drama and emotional theatre and will subconsciously create danger in order to give the alpha male an opportunity to rush in and save them.

I suppose this could be the case. My own words would be that the women in charge of Europe possess the programming that says they're supposed to nurture and help everyone until it hurts. Feminism is good when it means women will be casting votes and having opportunities to leave the home and work a job. Feminism is bad when it means that women have been encouraged to take command of Western nations and invite the third world to walk in and make themselves at home.

Europe is suffering for this. Their men are being beaten and their women raped in front of them. The European economies are being drained and their cultures murdered. Will this come to America? Has it already?

Read the story in the link before you utter the word "sexist", please. You may not agree with the cause of the European troubles, but the results of whatever the cause is are undeniable to all except for the most delusional.

Intelligence chairman says surveillance was conducted on Trump.

The US House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has stated that there was electronic surveillance conducted on Donald Trump during the 0bama Administration, that the surveillance appears to be "inappropriate" and that there are still "multiple FISA warrants" outstanding for electronic surveillance operations against Trump. Nunes stated also that Trump's communications may have been collected.

Well, yeah. All of our communications have been collected.

Deep State vs the elected Trump administration.

Still no hard evidence on any Russian connections, though.

My email to Florida Senator Doug Broxson.

"Senator Broxson,

I am contacting you to ask about your thoughts and feelings on some pro-gun legislation currently moving through the Florida Senate. Several bills, including SB 644 (Open Carry) and SB 622 (Campus Carry) have been attempted in past sessions and failed in committees. It's my hope that these bills can be brought to a floor vote and then sent to Governor Scott.

Unfortunately, Republican Senator Anitere Flores has voiced her opposition to any future pro-gun bills that go through the Senate Judiciary Committee.

My questions:

Do you support SB 644 (Open Carry)?

Do you support SB 622 (Campus Carry)?

What are Republicans going to do to get SB 644 and 622 through the Judiciary Committee without the support of Senator Flores?

Thank you for any reply."

If I receive a response, I'll update.

0bama is taking a direct role in the sedition against the Trump government.

Whether you like Trump or not, like 0bama or not, the fact is that 0bama is taking an unprecedented role of former presidential influence against a sitting President. Online monitors report that 0bama made an unannounced and short notice trip to Hawaii immediately prior to a Hawaii Judge ruling against Trump's revised executive order on immigration.

0bama's shadow government vs Trump's elected government, with the deep state in between.

This will not end well for us, no matter how pure Trump's intentions are and no matter how effective he is. Accelerate your preparations with emphasis on securing rural shelter in a conservative region, rainwater collection, filtration and purification, food storage and lastly, security. Then move toward medical supplies and skills, communications, information collection and transportation.

Focus on securing and sustaining your own home and anyone you expect to take in. Then move outward in concentric circles to securing your street, your block, your neighborhood, your town, your county, etc.

As Bracken has stated, "your community is your country".

Trump's tax returns released.

In case anyone actually cares, we now know that Trump pays taxes. A lot of taxes, in fact. Like, nearly $40 million in taxes.

His tax returns from 1995 were stolen last year and showed that Trunp avoided paying income taxes that year, because due to a rough economy for businesses, he netted over $900 million in total losses.

That, people, is not income. By law, he could have avoided paying income taxes for up to 18 years because of those massive losses. But did he? No. He covered those losses in less than TEN years and started paying income taxes again.

So now we have his 2005 tax returns, again illegally. But who cares about that? Those returns show a much higher tax rate than 0bama, Bernie or Hillary ever paid. He even paid a supplemental tax rather than claiming all of his excessive deductions he could have claimed.

The reason I ask if anyone actually cares about Trump's tax returns, is because none of the anti-Trump people out there would care at all if their media masters at MSNBC or CNN weren't telling them that they're supposed to care. They're not even going to read the (illegally) stolen and leaked tax returns themselves.

The media TOLD them to care about Trump's tax returns, so they do. But again, they don't want to read them themselves. They want the media to TELL THEM HOW THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO FEEL ABOUT HIS TAX RETURNS. Then, they want the media to TELL THEM HOW THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO REACT TO THE TAX RETURNS.

This story is likely to disappear just like the story about his 1995 tax returns. Either that, or the left will claim that $40 million in taxes isn't enough, and look how evil that is.

You know, maybe every single person in the US should pay 15%-18% of their income in taxes, and leave it at that. Some people don't pay any taxes at all. Trunp obviously isn't one of them.

What are the odds that Trump actually leaked these himself? Did he outmaneuver the left wing media again? I have no evidence of this. Just speculating.

This whole post probably makes me a racist or an Islamophobe. Or something. I'm sure they could come up with something.

P.S. Still no Russian connection. But feel free to ask Hillary who she outsourced US uranium production too while she was SecState.

Black culture does not allow blacks to respect themselves.

There are certain people who have been allowed to plant themselves as iconic black "leaders" in contemporary black culture. These people are the likes of Jay Z and Beyoncé, 0bama, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, among others.

The black culture these people and others have fostered is evident in how little many black people respect themselves and other black people.

This black culture has absolutely zero respect for their women or children. The men certainly have no respect for themselves.

If you are white, you need to look at this and see that it is a tragedy, but BEFORE coming to that end, you need to first understand this:

If they don't have respect for people who look like them, speak like them, behave like them, live with them, is it possible that they have nothing but disdain for you? Someone who their "leaders" are telling them is responsible for their plight?

Do not allow yourself to be affected by the label of "racist" (or any of the other labels the left throws at us on an hourly basis). They do not care one way or another about you or what you think. They want something from you. They want you to be subservient. The label is a means to control your behavior and thoughts. Nothing more.

Do not allow it. They don't want to discuss or debate or argue. They want submission.

Money and Markets (Link to infographic)

Comparing the world's money and markets in one simple, yet large, infographic.

Update on pro-gun issues in Florida: Anitere Flores could be a problem.

Florida has been trying to pass open carry (OC) and campus carry (CC) for several years and was always blocked by former state senator REPUBLICAN Miguel Diaz De la Portilla. He was the chairman of the judiciary committee and refused to allow OC or CC to be heard in his meetings at all. He, a REPUBLICAN, singlehandedly blocked all pro-gun bills from proceeding.

Voters replaced him last year with a democrat, and republicans filled his judiciary chairman seat with Greg Steube, who is the author of EIGHT pro-gun bills. Sounds like a clear path, right?

Wrong. Anitere Flores is a REPUBLICAN member of the judiciary committee, and has decided to side with the democrats on all future pro-gun bills. She flips the judiciary committee from a 5-4 republican voting majority, to a 5-4 democrat voting majority.

I simply do not understand why the republicans are incapable of using their large majorities to wield any significant influence. When the democrats have even a slight majority, they use it to steamroll the opposition and foist their philosophies onto the public in leaps and bounds. The republicans? Even with a large majority, they're still left clawing for hard fought inches.

I'll update later. Hopefully Senator Steube can change Flores's mind.

Pro-Trump "trolls" ruin Shia Labeouf's protest.

Shia Labeouf has raised an anti-Trump flag with the phrase "He Will Not Divide Us", but pro-Trump "trolls" were able to ruin his time. He then moved his flag to an undisclosed location and set up a live stream of the flag. Still, the pro-Trumpers were able to find it and replace it with a Trump hat.

Americans do not, and should not, respect the Hollywood elitists, especially not the unhinged Labeouf.

Sessions asks 0bama appointed US attorneys to resign.

Don't let the media fool you. Every time a new President from an opposing party moves into the White House, the new AG soon after will request that all of the US attorneys that were appointed by the previous administration resign. It's part of the deal.

AG Jeff Sessions has done just that.

It's not a purge or a cleansing. It's just a new slate, and it's typical.

In this most recent case, however, it's even more vital than usual. It's going to take a lot of long, hard work to root out the bureaucrats and attorneys 0bama placed throughout the government apparatus. It'll be like playing whack-a-mole, probably for all of the next four years. 0bama was never in the habit of appointing moderates or even middle of the road liberals. He's a Marxist, and he was always going to hire Marxists.

Wikileaks "Vault 7".

Wikileaks has dumped over 8,000 CIA documents in what is called "Vault 7". These documents show that the CIA is capable of turning on the microphones of smart TVs, iPhones and laptops to listen to everything with earshot.

Treat every electronic device as if it is compromised.

Study your HUMINT and countersurveillance tradecraft. Practice and make it part of your daily routine.

Rep. Mike Kelly says 0bama is running "shadow government".

Republican Congressman Mike Kelly has stated that 0bama is remaining in and around the DC area for only one reason, and that is to run a "shadow government". Why else would Valerie Jarrett LIVE IN HIS HOUSE?

A shadow government is a behind the scenes government that pulls the strings that make the governing machine run. One example of a shadow government is the remnants of the Taliban in Afghanistan. The "legitimate" Afghan government is technically in power, but much of what goes on is dictated behind the scenes by Taliban presence. Shadow governments are often, but not always, at odds with the legitimate government, to varying degrees.

In America, we have three governments:

1. The elected Trump government.

2. The "deep state", made up by agencies like the CIA and the NSA.

3. The 0bama shadow government, made up of "nonpartisan" bureaucrats, regulators, lawyers and judges that were appointed during the 0bama administration. Make no mistake, he never broke contact with them.

The deep state is at odds with the elected Trump government and has some common goals with the 0bama shadow government.

The deep state does not care about you.

The shadow government disdains you.

The elected Trump government? Wait and see, but don't let yourself be surprised if this new tiger has the same stripes as the old ones.

None of your electronic devices are safe.

Thanks to Wikileaks, we now know that the CIA has turned every smart TV, iPhone, PC and gaming console into a spy device.

We sort of knew this, but now we KNOW this.

Did the 0bama Administration spy on the Trump campaign?

Mark Levin and Breitbart give us reason to believe that 0bama may have been spying on the Trump Campaign.

Story is developing.

Evidence is mounting that 0bama and his ilk are working up plans to undermine the new administration.

Sedition? Soft coup?

Just throwing it out there. Sedition laws are a labyrinth, just like the rest of our legal system, made to be escapable by the elites and impenetrable for the irredeemable, deplorable masses.

For everything you prep for, you have to have food.

As International Man lays out in well-written, food shortage article, societies will tolerate a LOT of hardship and strife before it loses it's collective mind. But if you want to go from zero to societal breakdown in 3.2 seconds, all you need to do is take away everyone's food supply. Heck, you could just interrupt the food supply for a few days. It's been said that we are all just nine meals away from total savagery.

Guns are awesome, knives are nice, camo gear looks cool, but you can't eat any of it. There is a reason I list "food" as number three on my list of needs, above "security" (guns).


And no, you are not just going to go off in the woods and hunt all of your food forever. During the Great Depression, the North American White Tail Deer population was nearly hunted to extinction. You need a combination of hunting, fishing, gardening, gathering and storage food to get through a long term survival scenario, including any scenario that results in a food shortage.

Target is in trouble.

Investment Watch Blog says that Target is close to financial collapse, and Target's CEO says it is due in part to "rapidly changing consumer behavior". In other words, people are boycotting Target's decision to allow people to use whatever bathroom they choose. This boycott is having a major effect on Target's stock value, which was down 13% already today just this morning, and was on track for the worst trading day the company has had in nearly twenty years.

Keep pushing. Make them listen.

A win for free speech on campus.

Grand Valley State University has been forced to settle with a Conservative student group, favorably for the student group. This is a small win for free speech. The student group asserted that the entire campus was a free speech zone, while the school asserted that only two areas could be considered free speech zones. Basically, the school tried to make the entire campus a "safe space" for delicate, left wing snowflakes.

A small win, but a win. The small wins will help push us to liberty.

If you have a Samsung Smart TV, the CIA can hear you.

Via Wikileaks Twitter account, the CIA is able to turn on the microphone of Samsung smart TV sets and listen to everything that goes on in your house.

It's ok, you say? You have nothing to hide, you say?

The people who are listening are the ones who get to choose whether or not you have something to hide. Not you. You are not even free to NOT have anything to hide.

Trump is winning again.

Apparently three quarters of Americans were happy with Trump's first major speech to Congress.

He started strong, then faltered, now he's back to winning.

The rise of Trump. Again.

It's going to be a long fight. Just make sure you're on the right side when it really starts to get sporty.

If I figure out which side that is, I'll let you know! In the meantime, here's hoping Trump continues to make good on most of his promises.

DOW hits 21,000.

Zerohedge reports the DOW passing the 21,000 mark.

How much higher can we go before the boom and bust cycle comes back down?

Don't stop prepping. Get your cash out of the bank. All they're doing is holding it. Why can't you hold it?

Open Carry on Florida: Update.

There is no problem with OC, as we see in the 40+ states that have OC. Gas station robbers are not gunning down OCers at the counter, OCers are not having their guns yanked away by muggers, mass shooters aren't picking out OCers as their first target when they walk into the mall, or any of the other dozen or so largely FICTIONAL scenarios that so called "gun rights supporters" use to disparage the proliferation of OC. So let's set that aside. Whether anyone likes it or not, we are going to have OC in Florida at some point, and no amount of bitching by the Fudds or the liberals or the fair-weather gun people is going to stop it.

Anyway, thanks in part to my communications with certain Florida legislative offices, I may have found out what happened to Senator Steube's SB 140. Shortly after the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting, he seems to have pulled the bill from the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting schedule. The bill included a provision allowing concealed weapons licensees to carry inside the non-sterile areas of the airports. This may be the source of the worsening "political climate" I saw mentioned previously.

It appears that Senator Steube has rewritten SB 140, and the bill is now SB 644. All amendments to the locations where carrying is prohibited have been removed. Whereas SB 140 was an OC bill AND a bill that significantly limited prohibited areas, SB 644 appears to be a purely OC related bill.

Florida Senate Bill 644 would take effect on July 1, 2017 if it passes.

House Intel Committee Chairman says no evidence of Trump-Russia ties.

With all of the speculation coming from the lying mainstream media and the lying democrats, it's nice to hear from someone doing some actual work on the matter of Trump's alleged ties to Russia. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee says he has seen no evidence that Trump has significant ties to Russia.

The mainstream media isn't going to like that.

Maybe the mainstream media could look into when Hillary sold the majority of US Uranium production to Russia...

No? Okay...

How they operate.

Local police:

1. Laws restricting private citizens from forming militias (protected by the Constitution?) and persuing violent criminals, and restricting law-abiding private citizens from owning equipment helpful in persuing violent criminals. Laws limiting the self defense measures a private citizen can take without being prosecuted themselves.

2. Claim that police are the only ones capable and equipped to persue violent criminals. Encourage "shelter in place".

3. Ask for money, more military equipment, more guns and more cops, without ever telling the private citizens how many you need, just that you need "more" and whatever you have at any given time is "not enough". Tell the people the most important thing is always "officer safety", which is even more important than anyone's "rights".

4. ???

5. Profit.

Federal and State police:

1. Find an impressionable person (white is best, but a black will help fuel racial tension) with some "extreme" views, but they are otherwise not inclined, are incapable and unequipped to take any action, ever.

2. Befriend them, and train them to be capable, equip them and encourage them to take action. Provide the opportunity and assist them, but then arrest them at the last minute (or one minute too late).

3. Claim that "domestic terrorism" is a major threat, and request additional tax dollars for more weapons and equipment and lobby for the legal ability to spy on anyone you want without oversight, except by a super secret court that the public has no access to.

4. ???

5. Profit.

Is Florida Open Carry dead in the water, again?

The last action on Florida Senate Bill 140 (open carry) was from early January when the judiciary committee meeting on the bill was "cancelled. I've emailed my senator in Tallahassee (Doug Broxson) twice without reply. I'll keep you updated.

Have the spineless republicans in Tallahassee lets us down again? The have the perfect political climate to get these type of bills passed.

Why do distinct cultures exist? I believe it's because people naturally gravitate and stay with people who are similar to them. People who look, behave and speak similarly, people who have the same talents, goals, norms, customs and attitudes will form cultures and generally stay together in their own geographic areas, large and small.

What happens when different cultures come into proximity? If the proximity is voluntary, great things can come of it. New ideas and innovations are introduced and generally speaking, all of the cultures can come away better, slightly changed, but still maintaining the core of their cultural identity. These different groups can choose to live in proximity for as long as they want and continue to absorb the positive aspects of this voluntary proximity.

But what happens when these diverse cultures are forced into proximity for an indefinite period of time? Perhaps permanently? What happens when these diverse cultures are told that they must absorb and welcome ALL aspects of the alien cultures, or else risk being branded with some negative labeling? What happens when some of these cultures are given special preferences above other cultures? What happens when history is taught in a way that shows some cultures as permanent oppressors to others?

Conflict occurs when the cultures can't voluntarily separate. There is nothing wrong with cultures maintaining a voluntary separation/voluntary proximity pattern.

Diverse cultures, combined with forced, permanent proximity, results in conflict that escalates into wars.

The wife favors the Sig P320.

The wife went and took her class to get the certificate required by Florida to get her concealed weapons permit. She had some issues with the Ruger LC380 she had, and instead tried out the Sig Sauer P320. She liked it. Liked it enough that she wants one ASAP.

My personal issues with Sig pistols was that they had larger, somewhat bulky feeling grips and were overpriced. In fact, Sig was sort of known for these things in the gun community, to an extent. Well from what I can tell, those issues aren't really issues anymore.

You can commonly get out the door with a P320 for less than $600, and that's not bad. It's modular, which is great if that matters to you.

The Army just choose the Sig P320 as their new standard issue pistol. The Special Operations community has instead settled on the Glock 19.

We don't all live in the same reality.

It's been a few days since I last posted, mostly because I've worked a lot of overtime at the hospital to get over a slight money hill. I've built up a little lineup of things to talk about over the next week or so, but for now, just a random thought:

When people wonder aloud (and to themselves) about what makes people do the things they do, good or bad but mostly bad, or at least something we perceive as being bad, it's hard for them to wrap their head around it. It's always hard for us to understand why people do the things they do, like "protestors" throwing bricks at passers by, or middle eastern migrants burning the city of Paris, or a murderer killing an innocent hospital employee just to take her car, or even less violent things like why people vote the way they do in elections or why they choose to carry or NOT to carry a firearm, or why they choose to or NOT to prepare for unknown disasters, or any of the other things we observe people doing that we find to be confusing. My theory is that we have this difficulty because we are trying to make sense of it using only the way that we ourselves have learned to make our way through the world.

I recently had a little debate at work with a physician that I very much enjoy and appreciate working with. His views on immigration (legal and illegal) were mostly opposed to mine, but during this debate our backgrounds and upbringings were also discussed. It became clear to me that we had both taken VERY different paths to get to the same basic place in our lives and that those background have placed us living in the same physical world, but two vastly different perceptions of reality, right and wrong, law and order, rights vs privileges, even our view of historical fact was perceived differently. In this case, he and I simply don't live in the same reality. That's not to imply that there was anything inherently wrong with what either of us thought or said. It's simply an acknowledgment of the fact that we could be looking at the same picture and see two different images, and this is due to the events of our lives that shaped our perception of literally almost everything around us.

When you are able to unshackle your mind of the constraints that forced you to process the world through only your own filter, then you can at least understand why people think and do things so differently. You don't have to understand why they're doing it the way they are doing it. You just need to understand why they ARE NOT doing the way that YOU ARE.

I've heard it said that in decades like the 1970's or 1980's, you might hear one of the "elites", like a highly paid, tenured professor with multiple doctorates, make a disparaging remark about one of the lower class people doing a lower class job, like a garbage man. But today? Do you hear the same remark? Not as often. But why then and not so much today? Because in the past decades, that professor and that garbage man still had to do a lot of the same things in life to survive and get by. But today, that high level professor barely even knows the garbage man exists... They're unlikely to cross paths or have any similarities in background or futures.

It's simply because we don't all live in the same reality anymore. A white, male, 38 year old farmer in Central Texas doesn't live in the same world as the Asian, female, 22 year old art history major in Seattle, or the black, male 45 year old Army veteran in Southern Georgia, or the Hispanic, female, 57 year old nurse in New York City.

Once you wrap your brain around the fact that we no longer live in the same reality, it's much easier to understand why things happen the way they do.

Thanks for reading. Maybe some of that made enough sense to you.
