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.

My own review of President Trump's first 100 days.

There are myriad 100 day reviews flying around the interwebz at this moment, so seeing as I have a blog myself, I'll go ahead and throw mine into the mix, despite being a little late. This post was started on February 1st, initially as a list of Trump's moves for me to keep straight and comment on, and now as a final review post. I'm coming at this from the same angle as my other posts, which is a Liberty based angle, and I am just as skeptical of big government now as I ever was, so expect a mix of criticism and praise. I am significantly more prone to criticize the federal government and of all its branches than I am to give praise. Keep that in mind.

- Constant friction with MSM outlets: I blame this mostly on the MSM themselves. Originally Trump was nothing but a joke to them. Now that he's in the White House, they're doing everything they can to work against him. With that said, his interactions with them amount to childish bickering in most cases. Guess what? That's what they want. Childish bickering is not beneath the MSM, but it's supposed to be beneath the President. What I would say to Trump, is "we already don't believe anything the media says, so you may be best served ignoring them when they try to bait you. That means dialing back the Twitter wars.

- US exited TPP: Great move, and executed quickly (immediately) just like he promised. How many of these large, international trade deals result in a net positive for the US? Almost zero of them.

- US trying to renegotiate NAFTA: Another international trade deal that, in my opinion, has resulted in a moderate positive result for Canada, a big positive result for Mexico, and at least a slight negative for the US. We need to realize that the US does not need Canada and Mexico like they need us. But now Trump is softening his approach on NAFTA. If you want to leave it in place, fine. But it needs to renegotiated to favor the US more than it does now.

- Signed EO to block funding for all foreign abortion providers: Good move. Funding abortion providers here is bad enough. We sure as heck don't need to be funding it overseas. But why are we funding anything overseas?

- Immigration from seven "terrorist" countries temporarily blocked, rewritten and blocked again. Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Syria. Court blocks EO: His efforts are positive and he seems to be steadfast in it, but the courts have been stacked with anti-American, left wing activist judges by the previous administration. Everything he does is subject to being blocked by some random lower court judge.

- Continued involvement in sending military hardware to some random ass groups in Syria: Our continued involvement in the Syrian conflict is puzzling. He needs to either turn our guns against ISIS and AQ, or get out of the country altogether.

- Trump signed EO to cut business regulations: Anything to reduce regulations of business in the US is a positive. Regulations on American businesses over the last eight years are best described as punishing. I see no scenario where Trump increases regs.

- Chose Neil Gorsuch for SCOTUS: Some conservatives have some minor reservations about this pick, but Trump seems to have made a concerted effort to replace Justice Antonin Scalia with someone who will interpret law in the same manner. I think he probably got this one right.

- Froze federal regulations and hiring: The federal government is bloated with thousands of jobs that produce nothing or are worth nothing. Part of being too big is having too many people in do-nothing jobs. Freezing hiring and cutting federal jobs is the right move.

- Encouraged Trans-Canada to resubmit the application for the Keystone XL oil pipeline and announced support for the Dakota Access Pipeline: As of right now, Trump seems to recognize that green energy is more of a political football than an actual practical direction. The political demand is far outpacing the ability of the technology to produce the necessary power. Pipelines are more efficient and much safer than tanker trucks and trains. The jobs produced by the construction of the pipelines will do well for those local economies.

- Unpresidential use of Twitter: I've already touched on the Twitter fights he gets into. At this point, people are baiting him into it because no matter what happens, he ends up looking the fool. Use Twitter to broadcast positive messages to your constituents, not to fight with someone who hurt your feelings. 

- General Flynn's resignation: Michael Flynn was Trump's National Security Advisor, and was going to be driving his decision-making on everything related. He was set to have a large amount of influence, and he was taken down by the left and the MSM. Investigations are pending to find out about any wrongdoing. This obvsiously was a black eye for the Trump White House.

- Sessions recusal from the Russian tampering investigation: There is absolutely no reason whatsoever that AG Jeff Sessions needed to be recused from anything relating to any Russian investigations. This was a tap out for the left, and it made Trump and Sessions look bad. Weak.

- Failure to repeal 0bamacare and threats to fight the Freedom Caucus: Trump and the House Republicans had been pushing a healthcare bill, nicknamed by some "0bamacare lite" or "0bamacare 2.0". There weren't that many differences between the bills and the House "Freedom Caucus" balked at the offer and Trump threatened to "go after them" in the next round of elections. It had to pulled from the floor and it made everyone look like fools. Why rush this 0bamacare-esque bill? I suspect they just wanted to claim a repeal and spike the football. Since then, the House has drafted a somewhat better bill and passed it through the House. Now he Senate is taking up the bill, and have stated they will be rewriting a lot of it. Maybe they can give us something better. It's clear that Trump simply wants to get SOMETHING passed so he can claim victory and move on. Unfortunately, it seems we are stuck with a healthcare law that allows the federal government to maintain its control over the healthcare system. Government has no place in healthcare.

- Missile attacks against Syria: Again, I'm not sure why we are bombing Syrian airfields. The mess in Syria is so tangled and complicated, there is no one we can attack and still avoid assisting ISIS and AQ, besides ISIS and AQ themselves. We may not like Assad, and we don't have to, but attacking him helps the people fighting him. And who is fighting him? ISIS and AQ, among others.

- ICE deportations on the rise: It seems that the culture of Trump's administration has allowed ICE to actually do their jobs. Good.

- Sean Spicer is a moron: I'm sorry, but he has to go. He looks and acts like a sniveling fool. How many gaffes has he had so far? He's the spokesman. The White House has two faces, Trump and whoever the spokesman is. Get someone smart, without a visit tube streak, and someone who doesn't immediately strike people as a sniveling weasel. Someone in the mold of Dana Perino or Tony Snow. Sean Spicer strikes me as someone who would be a good pick for the 0bama administration.

- Tensions with North Korea: This is a problem. I spent my time in South Korea collecting and analyzing intelligence and deconflicting intelligence sources. I was there when KJI died. Tensions were high then, but they're REALLY high right now. Trump's position so far is that the bullcrap stops now. He seems willing to take action. What action? I don't know. But I suppose if you tell me "North Korea has had enough time to stop being the literal worst country on earth that they've been for roughly 60 years, and now it's time to deal with them.", I wouldn't disagree. They are within a couple years of having an ICBM capable of reaching our mainland and possibly only a few more years from being able to mount a nuclear weapon on it. They're threatening to get to that point and then use it on us. If that's not a legitimate national security threat, then nothing is.

Bad "Omnibusl budget bill: So in April, the republicans passed a budget bill that Trump signed off on. The Southern border wall is not funded, but Planned Parenthood is. In fact, democrats pretty much got everything they asked for in his bill, and republicans got only one thing, an increase in defense spending. That was it. The republicans are saying that they HAD to avoid a government shutdown and that this bill is just a holdover for the big budget bill that they'll draw up in October. Problem with that is that that's what they told us last time, in December, when they passed a crappy budget as a holdover for when Trump took office and the republicans could get their agenda bill passed in April. Well now we got April's bill and still a democrat win. All the same old crap got passed and democrats are happy with it. Almost every democrat in congress voted for it. Most of the congress members who voted against it were members of the conservative Freedom Caucus. What does that tell you?

There are obviously a lot more things that could be discussed, but I feel like I've hit on my of the important subjects. We'll see how it goes from here.

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.
