Ace Explains Why Donald Trump Is Winning

Ace makes some observations. He, himself, is tired of the weak-kneed politicians who can be molded by politically correct accusations. He cites Marco Rubio and his campaign derisively.

From Ace of Spades:

“Why Trump Won, and Why the Current Crop of Purported Leaders Must Be Swept Aside”

spade and skull Banner2

Trump won because when a Native American activist (posing as a journalist) declared that “Pocahantas” was “very offensive” as used in regard to Elizabeth Warren — dishonestly, I might add, as everyone knows the term is used to deny she’s an Indian, not to denigrate her as an Indian, and everyone knows this, and only a liar pretends otherwise — Trump did not begin falling over himself to make apologies and keep the well-wishes of the increasingly unreasonable left-wing hegemony.

He just began making fun of the stupid silly bitch for being a stupid silly bitch.

People are f*cking tired of walking around on eggshells and being made to apologize for every f*cking g*ddamn thing in the world.”

Well, he’s right there. But what can GOP leaders learn from Mr. Trump?

It’s time to start treating them as what they are — dishonest liars trying to control you.

And it’s time to start treating them as straight up internal enemies.

We tried it polite. We’ve been falling all ourselves for 30 years to try to convince the increasingly extremist left wing assh*les that we’re not all the foul things they call us.

It’s impossible — their jobs, their income, and their government subsidies depend on us being treated as second-class citizens and beasts for taxation.

It’s about time we woke and realized they cannot be convinced, because they never really believed their bullsh*t anyway, it was always for the purposes of exacting rents out of people and making them knuckle under.

And I’m afraid our current leadership just can never get that — they find themselves too afraid to go against their class, they fear too much the idea of being outcasts from their castes.”

This, really, is what Trump has given Americans. Many of us don’t care as much about his positions on border walls or immigration or his mindless platitudes as we do about defeating the strongest weapons those on the left have with which to bludgeon you and me into submission. It amounts to this:

They call us vile names.

That scares the crap out of the leaders who do not want to have their names removed from the guest lists at cocktail parties at Georgetown, Manhattan, or Seattle. Mr. Trump has shown them and the list makers that he doesn’t care, that he can throw parties and you can expect his to be more well-attended.

I, for one, am eager to use the Trump tactic.

Palestinians Compared To Israelis

Of course there are plenty of people who support the destruction that Islam teaches. It’s all based on one thing: Hatred of others.

This is an insightful essay on the differences between western values and Islam. Included is a stark image of a greenhouse installed by Israelis in which to grow vegetables. It was abandoned by them when Gaza was turned over to the Palestinians. Did they continue to grow food there? No.

160527-palestine-greenhouse

Records show it has always been so. Sadly, this is what our President and most of the rest of the American left believe we should emulate. Me, I prefer the examples set by the Israelis.

150 years ago, Mark Twain visited Muslim-occupied Israel and wrote of “unpeopled deserts” and “mounds of barrenness”, of “forlorn” and “untenanted” cities.

Palestine is “desolate”, he concluded. “One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.” The same is true of the Palestinian Museum which opened with much fanfare and one slight problem. While admission is free, there’s nothing inside for any of the visitors to see except the bare walls.

The Palestinian Museum had been in the works since 1998, but has no exhibits. The museum cost $24 million. All it has to show for it are a few low sloping sandy buildings indistinguishable from the dirt and a “garden” of scraggly bushes and shrubs. The Palestinian Museum is open, but there’s nothing inside.”

Secret Service Agents Strike Back At Congressman

So it’s not just the IRS that has become weaponized. The Secret Service is part of the Treasury Department. Somehow these federal employees took it upon themselves to attack a sitting Congressman, endangering him and his family. They got light slaps on the wrist for actions that should have landed them in jail.

“US Secret Service agents disciplined over congressman”

Forty-one US Secret Service personnel faced measures ranging from a letter of reprimand to suspensions without pay for up to 45 days for improperly accessing and leaking the personal information of a congressman

Forty-one US Secret Service personnel faced measures ranging from a letter of reprimand to suspensions without pay for up to 45 days for improperly accessing and leaking the personal information of a congressman

The US authorities have disciplined 41 Secret Service personnel for improperly accessing and leaking the personal information of a congressman who had scrutinized the agency, the Department of Homeland Security said.

The announcement comes after a report in September by the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General accused the Secret Service employees of accessing the personal files of Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, who has led several inquiries into alleged misconduct at the agency.

They were punished with measures ranging from a letter of reprimand to suspensions without pay for up to 45 days, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said in a statement on Thursday.”

Two Stories Today About Vegans Going Too Far

First, there is a story about Vegan activists in Spain who took off their clothes and got wrapped up like supermarket meat. Then the people who didn’t take off their clothes harangued the leering crowd about the evils of eating meat.

carne humana

There is a video here

Second, a vegan woman has died on Mount Everest while trying to prove that vegans can do anything non-vegans can do. This sad outcome was preventable.

Maria Strydom and Robert Gropel climbing together in a photo published on social media in December 2015 Facebook

For Maria Strydom and her husband Robert Gropel, climbing Everest while adhering to a strict vegan diet was their “own personal Everest.”

The 34-year-old Strydom, a lecturer at Monash Business School in Melbourne, had a message she wanted to share with the world: Veganism is not a handicap.

She and her husband Robert Gropel, a Melbourne veterinarian with Ivanhoe East Veterinary Hospital, both stuck closely to the rigorous diet required by vegans — no animal products whatsoever, which extends from scrambled eggs to most chocolate chip cookies — for which they experienced criticism. Some believed they didn’t receive enough iron and protein in their diet for such strenuous physical activity.

“It seems that people have this warped idea of vegans being malnourished and weak,” Strydom said in an interview on Monash’s blog. “By climbing the seven summits we want to prove that vegans can do anything and more.”

It’s Nothing. Just An ATF Agent Having Fun

At least now we know what they call fun.

“Driver of unmarked ATF vehicle prompts complaint, investigation”

FAKE+COP4

Anchorage police have identified the federal agency that owns the unmarked vehicle as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.

APD spokeswoman Jennifer Castro said a citizen complaint on the driver’s conduct has been forwarded to the ATF and the agency will be conducting a personnel investigation regarding the incident.

[…]

APD has been able to confirm the vehicle is assigned to a law enforcement agency. The agency acknowledged the vehicle was on official business at the time of the incident,” Anchorage police wrote in a statement Monday.

A citizen called police last week to report that the white unmarked SUV, equipped with red and blue interior dash lights, had attempted to pull him over on the Glenn Highway at around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.

“As the motorist yielded, the driver sped past him, laughed, and flipped him the middle finger,” police wrote at the time. “The complainant observed this occur three other times with the same results.”

Denial Is Not Just A River In Egypt

You’ve probably heard about the EgyptAir aircraft that didn’t make it to Cairo. There has been a lot of speculation about whether the crash was a result of the actions of terrorists. The discussion has been going on between realists who say, “It sure looks like terrorism”, and the ‘Dreamers’ who are determined to blame something other than Islamists.

egypt air plane

Firmly in the corner of the second group is the New York Times. Unwilling to mention the possibility that terrrorists did the job that killed 66 people they tell us this was a coincidence:

“EgyptAir Was Aware of Threats to Security, Including One Scribbled on Plane”

Debris from the EgyptAir crash

Debris from the EgyptAir crash

First line in the NYT coverage:

CAIRO — In an eerie coincidence, the EgyptAir jetliner that plunged into the Mediterranean on Thursday was once the target of political vandals who wrote in Arabic on its underside, “We will bring this plane down.”

How can we possibly rely on a media like this to provide us with real news?

‘Imagine’ – The Dream Of Utopia

John Lennon wrote the song. In it he put all his dreams of a perfect world. He dreamed of a life without God or Satan, a world without violence or killing, a world without hunger or possessions. He dreamed of a perfect world without competition.

He was wrong – or stoned. His dream forgot the human emotions of lust, greed, and avarice. He thought people could become perfect, but we can’t.

How many of you know the words to his song? All of them?

“Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man”

It has become an anthem for socialists and other layabouts. But every time, without exception, his method has been tried it has resulted in hunger and death. In some cases the death toll was in the millions. In every case some strong man has co-opted the dream and turned it into a nightmare under his control.

communist_genocide

Today we are seeing the beginning of another nightmare in Venezuela.

emptyShelvesVenezuela

The people there have begun eating street animals and some are stealing from others. As a result, gangs of vigilantes are dispatching hard justice on the thieves. The people are angry. Soon the state will move to stop the people. Then the killing will start in earnest. Mr. Maduro has failed but he doesn’t want to release his control.

Again, every single time Lennon’s dream has been tried it has failed. But some people still ‘Imagine’. They are fools.

I Can’t Understand Why People Like These Talk To Washington Post Reporters

Kalley Soper, 4, watches sister Courtney, 16, shoot under the supervision of their father, B.J. Soper, founder of the Central Oregon Constitutional Guard.

REDMOND, Ore. — B.J. Soper took aim with his AR-15 semiautomatic rifle and fired a dozen shots at a human silhouette target. Soper’s wife and their 16-year-old daughter practiced drawing pistols. Then Soper helped his 4-year-old daughter, in pink sneakers and a ponytail, work on her marksmanship with a .22-caliber rifle.

Deep in the heart of a vast U.S. military training ground, surrounded by spent shotgun shells and juniper trees blasted to shreds, the Central Oregon Constitutional Guard was conducting its weekly firearms training.

“The intent is to be able to work together and defend ourselves if we need to,” said Soper, 40, a building contractor who is an emerging leader in a growing national movement rooted in distrust of the federal government, one that increasingly finds itself in armed conflicts with authorities.”

Another Good Reason To Avoid Target Stores

There is an active movement to boycott Target for political reasons. Even if you don’t support boycotts you might consider staying away from Target because of stuff like this.

It’s no wonder the store chain is suffering greatly reduced sales, causing their share price to plummet.

Target Suing Man Who Saved Teen Girl From Stabbing In Store”

Target-ap-640x480

When she was sixteen, Allison Meadows was shopping in an East Liberty, Pennsylvania, Target store when Leon Walls rushed into the outlet and stabbed her.

With the assistance of surveillance video, Walls was convicted of attempted homicide for his attack on the girl.

The only reason the girl did not suffer more injuries is because Michael Turner interceded and, along with several other men, confronted Walls. Turner himself chased Walls out the store with a baseball bat.

[…]

According to the company’s filing, Target says Turner and several others chased the suspect toward the store’s entrance after the attack on the girl. The store insists Turner put other shoppers at risk with his actions.”

I Find This To Be Suspicious

There are two stories here from the New York Post. The first tells us that a drunk man ‘Brandishing’ a knife was ‘Taken down’ by New York police.

The man shot by police brandished this knife before officers took him down.

The man shot by police brandished this knife before officers took him down.

They fired nine rounds at the man, eventually killing him. But, being New York’s finest, they also managed to shoot an innocent bystander.

Cops opened fire on a depressed Broadway stagehand who lunged at them with an 8-inch knife on a busy Midtown street Wednesday morning — killing him and wounding a California tourist, authorities said.”

The rest of the story is here.

In a follow-up piece in the Post it’s reported that four of the shots fired failed to penetrate the dead man’s coat. And now they’re calling the dead guy a ‘Madman’.

Four of the shots that cops fired at a madman waving a knife in Midtown failed to penetrate his jacket — which was not bullet-proof — and the NYPD will now check the weapons for malfunction, law enforcement sources told The Post.

“The bullets we have may be defective and that’s very disturbing,” one source said. “When we fire our weapons we want to make damn sure that our bullets hit our target – neutralizing our target.”

The line above, “… we want to make damn sure that our bullets hit our target…” is actually laughable. The one or more that struck the tourist certainly were not caused by defective ammunition.

We have noted here before that New York police are operating with several disadvantages. First, the Mayor, DeBlasio, is not on their side. He supports rioters and criminals over his cops. Second, the police are forced by the city to carry guns with terribly heavy trigger pulls – as some kind of a safety factor. This alone will lead to inaccurate shooting. Third, the officers need more and better training. In this case one of the officers doing the shooting ignored the fact that there was an innocent in his line of fire. Only good, frequent training can correct that.

As far as the bullets not penetrating the guy’s jacket, the claim sounds suspicious.

“Clinton Promises to Attack Gun Owners on Her “Very First Day” in Office”

When trying to decide whether Hollary Clinton or Donald Trump would be worse for the country, factor in the differences in their positions on gun control. And remember, gun control is not about guns. It’s about control of the people.

“I really support everything President Obama said he would do through regulation on guns but we’re going to start the very first day and tackle the gun lobby to try to reduce the outrageous number of people who are dying from gun violence in our country.”

Hillary-Clinton

Later, the candidate spoke of her party’s chances of taking control of the Senate, stating,

The Democrats have decided they will be led by Chuck Schumer and Chuck Schumer has been one of the most effective legislators in taking on the gun lobby. He and I worked together to get the Brady bill passed way back in my husband’s administration. So I think that it’s the kind of issue you have to start early, you have to work on it every day and we need to make it a voting issue.”

We Mentioned This A Few Days Ago…

… But here is a much more comprehensive discussion of preparing for economic collapse.

“Pay Attention to What They’re Out of in Venezuela”

Create-a-Collapse-Supply-List-Based-on-the-Things-They-Are-Out-of-in-Venezuela-750x530

The writer breaks the list into these areas:

Food
Hygiene items
Public utilities
Medicine and medical care

The writer also notes just how far Venezuela has fallen:

Every day, there is more dire news out of Venezuela. It’s so bad there that even the mainstream news can no longer ignore that the country is in the midst of an economic collapse. Thousands have turned to looting in order to feed their families. Even their soldiers have been stealing food. Long lines, empty stores, and hospitals without electricity are the norm instead of an unusual occurrence.

It wasn’t always like that. Life before Venezuela devolved into socialism looked a whole lot like our lives do today. In fact, as recently as the 1970s, Venezuela was one of the top 20 richest countries in the world.”

Salon Sympathizes With A Pedophile

Any person who wants to have adult sexual relations with a child is not interested in the well-being of the child. They are only interested in satisfying their own urges. They are, by definition, willing to sacrifice the child. They can be damaged in many ways, including psychological. People who want that are monsters. Any group who attempts to make damage like this acceptable consists of monsters.

““I’m not a monster”: A pedophile on attraction, love and a life of loneliness”

biden kisses little girl

Todd Nickerson began to suspect he was attracted to young girls when he was 13-years-old. At 18 he regularly babysat a five-year-old girl and eventually “fell in love” with her. Because he was molested at age seven, he knew the damage abuse caused and did not want to hurt the little girl. He packed up and left town so that he did not offend.

He later came out to his family as a pedophile.

Nickerson, now 43, says he has never abused a child and never will. He is involved in a website called “Virtuous Pedophiles” that provides an online discussion forum for people that are attracted to children but do not want to act on it.”

Black Lives Matter 101

““Blackness” Matters”

blm310

Rachelle Peterson writes this in the publication of the National Association Of Scholars. It is a result of her attending a five day course in April at what is called ‘The New Black School’.

597baa_6a79ddb46e314715881447d0fbbe5e0b

The raised, clenched fist indicates that the course is somehow connected to socialism or communism. Ms. Peterson outlines the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement.

What does the Black Lives Matter movement want? After all the “demands” on all the campuses; all the protests on all the city streets; and all the coverage in the national media, you might think the answer is obvious. Perhaps it is. Black Lives Matter activists want attention and they want political power.”

No surprise there. But there seems to be some disconnect about their message. But within the movement, things are more complicated.

Some participants fiercely argue that America needs to change by embracing “diversity.” Others just as fiercely argue that what is needed is a cohesive form of Black Nationalism that shuns white society. According to this second view, the only way to convince people that “black lives matter” is to reaffirm the importance of “blackness” itself. What is blackness? The advocates find that rather hard to say. And to make matters even more confusing, some of the participants in Black Lives Matter enunciate both views at once. They want to be “included” in mainstream society while at the same time expressing contemptuous rejection of that society.”

Sounds rather childish to me.

‘Splain This, Bernie

Bernie Sanders continues to support socialism even though there are thousands, perhaps millions, of excellent arguments that it always ends in failure. Today the New York Times has a piece on the failure of socialized medicine in Venezuela.

“Dying Infants and No Medicine: Inside Venezuela’s Failing Hospitals”

Just one of the horrific images at the Times

Just one of the horrific images at the Times

By morning, three newborns were already dead.

The day had begun with the usual hazards: chronic shortages of antibiotics, intravenous solutions, even food. Then a blackout swept over the city, shutting down the respirators in the maternity ward.

Doctors kept ailing infants alive by pumping air into their lungs by hand for hours. By nightfall, four more newborns had died.

“The death of a baby is our daily bread,” said Dr. Osleidy Camejo, a surgeon in the nation’s capital, Caracas, referring to the toll from Venezuela’s collapsing hospitals.

The economic crisis in this country has exploded into a public health emergency, claiming the lives of untold numbers of Venezuelans. It is just part of a larger unraveling here that has become so severe it has prompted President Nicolás Maduro to impose a state of emergency and has raised fears of a government collapse.”

Unfortunately, not once in the news report is blame laid where it rightly belongs, with socialism.

Survival Tip: Stock Up On Some Essentials

There are reports of rioting for basic foodstuffs in Venezuela. Zero Hedge has a powerful report.

They say five thousand people stormed a food warehouse there. Interestingly, they were after the basics:

They took milk, pasta, flour, oil, and milk powder.”

saqueos-venezuela_0

People from across the entire state came to the supermarket because there were rumors that some products not found anywhere else would be sold there.

As a result of the massive crowd, the authorities were unable to preserve the peace. “There were 250 people for each National Guard officer… lots of people and few soldiers. At least one officer was beat up because he tried to stop the crowd,” another source told El Estímulo.

Other food dispensaries run by the government were also looted by the people.

Far from the promised socialist paradise, as the massive group of people moved, an entrance gate collapsed under the weight of the crowd, leaving several wounded.”

Racism In The White House

Susan Rice has shown herself to be loyal to Barack Obama. She has also shown us that she has no original thoughts. She is the representative of the White House who went on five Sunday television talk shows to tell the American people that the attack on the US compound in Benghazi, Libya was a result of an obscure internet video that disrespected Islam’s Prophet Mohammad. The story was proven to be a lie but she went ahead with it as instructed.

Now she says the US security agencies are unreliable because they are, “Too white”. There are two things that can be understood from this comment.

First, she didn’t come up with the notion herself. It came from her superior like everything else she says. My guess is Valerie Jarrett sent her out to say it.

Second, the problem with excessive whiteness causes just one problem. The agencies are not controlled by the President. If there were more black faces in them they would follow his lead anywhere just as she has done. Just as Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, etc. have done.

In a White House often accused of being stacked with loyalists, President Obama’s national security adviser said Wednesday there are too many white people in key government posts, endangering national security because they think alike.

Speaking at Florida International University’s commencement, Susan E. Rice, who is black, said a diversified government workforce is more likely to yield “better outcomes” than a predominantly white one.

Referring to criticism that the U.S. national security workforce is “white, male and Yale,” Ms. Rice told the graduates, “In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.”
