Trump and COVID

Trump and COVID

I was recently pointed to a video by Russel Brand [https://youtu.be/mR52Cg__xYM] discussing "who won COVID" for Trump getting contracting and healing back from getting COVID-19. In truth - though I don't strongly recommend taking the time - Brand, for all that what he is saying is filtered through a leftist lens, at least a) understands rhetoric, and b) how much the press is lying. Of course, he considers Trump's rhetoric to be lies, and the "calm, dialectic" stuff (a bit of a misapprehension…

Roundup

It's been a while, and I've accumilated a few odds and ends that don't call for a full post. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hate is bad. So we are told. Of course, the same people will gladly tell us that "White Lives Don't Matter [http://archive.is/ME10Q]". I know, I know, they'll tell you that it's not "white lives" as in "the lives of white people," but instead "white lives" as in "lives lived as if you were white" - she even somewhat cl…

Odds 'N' Ends

Odds 'N' Ends

Antifragility First - in an excellent article on Trump as the "leverage" president [http://thezman.com/wordpress/?p=15302], The Z Man makes the following observation: > That’s the thing with understanding Trump, something a brilliant observer pointed out three years ago. Trump operates like a famous real estate developer. He is always looking to leverage his assets in order to take advantage of whatever opportunities that may present themselves in the future. In the case of the Kavanaugh hearin…

Found On Road....

The Kavanaugh hearings are over, and is now sitting on the supreme court. Cue freakouts by people who bought the media shitstorm. Now, a lot of this has been covered in depth, and I'll link a couple relevant vids below all of this. The carefully constructed story that could not leave her open to perjury. The incident itself which physically sounds like a terrified spin on some horseplay gone wrong - and I personally find the emphasis on how embarrassed she was interesting because I've seen wome…

Two Stupid Statements

Two Stupid Statements

We’ve had some doozies recently for dumb statements. For example, Kathy Griffin and the whole “severed Trump head” thing. Stefan goes into some serious detail here: Then there’s the uproar over Bill Maher, which finds Razorfist going to bat for him. Sortof.I’ll leave you with these for now – but I’ll be going into why, despite both having free speech, these cases are different.…

Soft Targets

Soft Targets

A long, long time ago, I read a book by Dean Ing called “Soft Targets [https://www.amazon.com/Soft-Targets-Dean-Ing/dp/0812519477?SubscriptionId=AKIAILSHYYTFIVPWUY6Q] .” In it, an interesting solution to terrorism was proposed. Laugh at them. No, nut justlaugh at them of course, but stop treating them in the news/etc. as monsters, but as fools, dunces, etc. Of course, in the story, several agents were nonetheless doing their best to prevent attacks, and if not entirely successful at first, ca…

Know Your Enemy

Know Your Enemy

We’ve all seen it before. The left, especially SJW’s, like to call their enemies stupid, ignorant, bigoted, etc.. The old gag goes that “racist” is what a liberal calls you when he lost the argument, and Scott Adams certainly puts his own spin on it, [http://blog.dilbert.com/post/160696999931/how-to-know-you-won-a-political-debate-on-the] and expands on it a bit. The problem is that eventually, you start to believe it, and I certainly know a few people who sincerely believe Trump goes around g…
