Fun with words and words for fun

losersObama was the big winner because he understood several key things. First, he understood that because he was Black he could get away with almost anything. He understood that the media was on his side, much more so than as just an ally. He understood that the media was in love with him and that they were willing to cover up many things, to not report the negatives and to hide that which he wanted hidden.

Obama also understood the dynamics of the breakdown in language and reasoning and how to capitalize on it. He understood that he could do anything he wanted and not be called to task simply because of this breakdown in reasoning and language. What for many of us would seem to be wholly illogical and near-crazy was presented by the media as acceptable and rational.

So overall, Obama was and remains (no one knows for just how long though) the big winner.

Here’s a partial list of others who were big winners because of Obama:

  • the rich
  • illegal immigrants
  • non-citizen residents who were able to vote fraudulently and collect benefits here in America
  • illegal aliens who were able to collect benefits under Obama’s policies
  • Democratic non-profit organizations
  • organizations like Planned Parenthood
  • organizations like black lives matter
  • climate change proponents whose findings mirrored what the government wanted them to be
  • colleges and universities intent upon suppressing conservative speech and thought
  • Communist/Socialist countries like Cuba and Venezuela
  • China, Russia, Iran and North Korea
  • The Palestinians
  • the mainstream media (except for Fox)
  • Socialists here in America
  • people like George Soros
  • those supporting anarchy and the breakdown of America

And of course there were a lot of others, but this is a good representative list.

Winners and losers have a symbiotic relationship. If there is one there is the other. So if Obama was the big winner, and there’s very little doubt about that, then somewhere, somehow, there has to be a big loser, or, a big loser and then an extensive list of also-big losers under the Obama administrations.

The biggest losers were the American people, all of the American people.

It remains to be seen if the world is a big loser too because the full effects of the Obama administrations are not wholly seen yet and are being somewhat undone by the current presidency. Nevertheless, whether you like America or not and/or like capitalism or not, America is the most charitable country in the world. It leads the world in medical research and gives the most foreign aid to other countries except for China, but a good percentage of China’s aid is for commercial access rather than development and welfare.

It’s logical and it goes without saying that if the Obama administration could give around $150 billion to Iran, the leader of the terrorist world   that openly advocates the complete annihilation of the United States and Israel, the American people were the biggest losers.

There are many other reasons besides the Iran debacle which make the American people the big losers under eight years of Obama. They range from poor economic policies to a breakdown of the traditional sense of justice as it was known prior to the Obama years.

Listen carefully to the Democrat “speak.” They continually signal they actually see the American people as losers.

quill-pen-300x300The pen is mightier than the sword!

So when we start to think about how wise or unwise our ancestors were, we might start with the insight of he who said “The pen is mightier than the sword.” It was said by Edward Butler-Lytton, an English author, in 1839.

The greatest ally the Democrats have is the mainstream media. Or, the word, not the sword. When you start to think about it, I mean really actually think about it, some of the stuff coming out of the mouths of some of the Democrats is pure hogwash. And that’s not even to mention the irony involved, or the flip-flops, or even the faulty logic.

What makes it possible for the Democrats to get away with the garbage they are spewing are the mainstream media. Like Pravda, which we used to criticize for its propaganda, the mainstream media broadcast the Democratic yarn over and over, a stuck record a good part of the American populace simply accept as  “that is what it is” simply because they hear it all the time. The word. What they are hearing his propaganda.

So let’s be clear about a few things. First, we can’t judge people of old by today’s standards. So a slave owner in 1750 can’t be judged by today’s outlook on slavery. We might ask several questions such as didn’t they know better and shouldn’t they have known better. But we can’t judge them for acting according to the laws and “norms” of their times other than to say that we know now they were wrong, we know now that for one man to own another is not only wrong but immoral.

Or the pen is mightier than the sword! Back then, the definition of “a man” was how slavery was allowed to occur. The pen is mightier than the sword!

The wisdom and insight of our ancestors is pretty amazing. Shakespeare wrote then about all the issues and matters we deal with now. Yet in our shortsightedness, we’ve decided to stop studying him because… it was so long ago, he was a male chauvinist, he’s no longer relevant, etc. Could Edward Bulwar-Lytton have foreseen today’s mainstream media and consequently the power-impact of the “word” today?

And so here we are. One of our politicians says something and our mainstream media run with it. Right or wrong, right or left, the media either criticize or laud what is said simply by their own political viewpoints, generally regardless of the logic of what’s been said and/or whether or not there is any factual basis. Then they pride themselves on being unbiased free press. More hogwash. But repeat it enough times and…

Pravda, déjà vu.

Propaganda pure and simple. Or, the pen is mightier than the sword, and just look at where it’s taking us.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Of course these days how one views that statement depends upon which pill one has swallowed, per The Matrix which has been mentioned here several times lately. That’s what it’s all come down to in America and just saying it is the first indication that something is very wrong here.

That something is wrong in America is quite clear. Pinpointing exactly what “it” is is not so clear and in itself this alone is a big problem. Or, it’s a second indication that something is very wrong here.

Things are generally easier though not necessarily better when the doctor can determine exactly what’s wrong with a patient because then the doctor generally has a prescribed course of action and all the patient has to do is follow the course prescribed by the doctor.

It’s a much bigger problem for a doctor and of course for the patient when what’s wrong can’t be determined. It’s the same thing as when your car is broken and the mechanic can’t find what’s wrong. Then it becomes a hunt, a kind of seek and try to find what’s wrong. In the meantime the patient or the car does not get any better, and as we all know, mechanics replace things on the search to find what’s really wrong and keep going until they find it or don’t.

We’re talking metaphor here. Uh, duh.

So two things upfront. First and foremost, the old saying is that when you point a finger at someone (you know the hand gesture) three fingers are pointing back at you. Second, be careful what you wish for because you may just get it.

That said, let’s talk about Hollywood, the movies, those actors and actresses and pop singers who think they know something just because they’ve made a lot of money in the entertainment business and have a large following on social media.

First, they work in an industry which is mostly devoid of any morality. Next, many of them make movies in which the morality is antithetical to what they profess to us poor people, their paying customers and followers. Then they go on and live their lives to please themselves disregarding what they would have us do.

So, for example, they would take away our right to bear arms, but they travel with armed bodyguards. They tell us a wall is immoral, but most of them live on fenced-in properties within gated cities. They laud socialized medicine, Medicare for all, but they have private physicians and pay up front for the best medical care money can buy.

And that’s just a few examples.

But those examples lead to some of the biggest metaphors of all, The Hunger Games trilogy and Resident Evil series of movies.

The analogy is probably crystal. In both sets of films there are the zombies and the herds of common people and there are those who live in extreme extravagance whose only goal is to control the masses while they, the extremely affluent, just live it up.

Some examples: Al Gore, Bill and Hillary, Leonardo DiCaprio, Whoopi (who said she was leaving the country if Trump got elected but is still here professing her socialist ideals while reaping our capitalist rewards), Nancy Pelosi, and yes, now, even the darling AOC who cavorts with the millionaire socialist Bernie.

Oh, enough of that for now.

So that’s the indication, overall, that something is rotten in the state of Denmark. What you think is wrong, again, depends upon the color of the pill you’ve swallowed.

It’s all a distraction, folks, Kabuki Theater meant to divide, distract and alienate while they, our leaders, collect more and more wealth.

 More on this to come!

Human Trafficking 1

Quite propitiously, at least for here, Jeffrey Epstein, owner of the Lolita Express mentioned in part one, has been in the news. He’s more of a side issue, as it were, since the mainstream media is only interested in going after President Trump’s Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta.

Is that a surprise? Or is it a shocker? Is it more important for the mainstream media to get the president than it is to actually begin to deal with the issue of human trafficking?

Altogether this is a quintessential question in America today: is it more important for the Democrats and the mainstream media to bring down this president than it is for them to take care of the American people and the business of the country?

The paradigm of absolute honesty and morality calling for Acosta’s resignation is the wonderful Debbie Wasserman Schultz, you know, that scandal-ridden leader of the Democratic National Committee during the last presidential election. She’s the one who refused to turn over their computers to the FBI, effectively impeding them from investigating the Clinton e-mail scandal. She’s the one who employed that Pakistani “family” accused of stealing computer secrets.

You can’t make this stuff up. In fiction, simply put, no one would believe it.

Acosta was a major player in a deal that allowed the known pedophile, Epstein, to get off with a sentence basically, actually much more than basically, unbelievable.

“Epstein was accused in 2008 of organizing a network of underage girls to engage in sex acts at his Palm Beach waterfront mansion. Epstein also allegedly enlisted girls to recruit even more victims, some of whom would travel with him on his private jet to New York and his private island resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“Under the terms of the plea deal, Epstein   was   convicted in  state  court of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution. But a    Miami Herald   investigation by reporter Julie K. Brown in November noted that the allegations   against Epstein were originally much broader, accusing him of coercing dozens of underage girls into sex acts.

“The Herald    reports it was able to identify 80 victims—many  between 13-16 years of age at the time—who said Epstein had sexually abused or molested them between 2001-2006. Eight of them agreed to be interviewed by the Herald, four on video…

“…Instead of a   lengthy sentence that could have resulted from the 53-page federal indictment he was facing, Epstein pleaded guilty to two prostitution charges and served 13 months in a Palm Beach county jail, where he was allowed to leave on work release for up to 12 hours a day, six days a week.

“The agreement worked out by   Acosta “essentially shut down an ongoing FBI probe that had already discovered 36 victims and could have unveiled other powerful participants in Esptein’s sex crimes, the Herald reported.”

So the real thrust of all of this, today, for the Democrats and the mainstream media, Debbie Wasserman Schultz leading the charge, is to get Acosta and thereby to get Trump, Trump because he hired a guy who made such a deal in 2008.

Make no mistake about it. If Acosta was involved in such a deal, he should not be Labor Secretary. Period.

Whether or not Trump knew about it, is another issue. And whether or not Acosta broke the law is even another issue.

But the Miami Herald now identifies about eighty Epstein victims. Herein is the real story and herein is where the thrust of the media attention should be placed.

So the real cover up still goes on.

This should be about Epstein, about human trafficking, about sex trafficking and about the magnitude of the trafficking problem. But what it’s really about is getting President Trump in an unrelated-to-Trump cover up.

President Clinton rode on Epstein’s Lolita Express twenty-six times, a known fact. He didn’t use that airplane for transportation. Many, many other prominent people are listed as friends and/or associates of Epstein’s, President Trump included.

But you can bet that if Acosta and Trump were not associated, the cover-up would still be totally covered up.

And that’s the real problem.

Human Trafficking 1

We don’t hear much about the child trafficking business in America or in the world altogether. In fact, people could get killed talking  about it, trying to expose it and reporting about it. In fact   people have gotten killed  trying to expose it and for reporting about it.

One wonders! One would think especially the Democrats, the supposed champions of the downtrodden, would be jumping all over the human trafficking issue/problem. After all, it is the modern form of slavery and sexual exploitation.

Isn’t that what these so-called moral-elitist Democrats claim they so detest? have always detested and fought against?

But actually they’re only self-proclaimed champions and then they only advocate for something when it fits into their political interests. The story in Virginia exemplifies this clearly. Something has to fit into their political narrative in order for them to advocate for it or take umbrage against it.

The Trump-opposers, these Dems and socialists who claim they own the moral superiority, mocked the President when he reported about the human trafficking issue at the border. In their arrogant and demeaning way, wreaking of their better-than-thou, condescending attitude, they joked that the President had seen what he was talking about in a movie and was now presenting it as real.

Lions and tigers and bears, said they.

Turns out, and it’s no surprise, that the President was correct and his facts are   real  facts. One in three women coming toward our borders in those caravans, toward that border where   they   say there is no crisis, are sexually assaulted, abused or raped and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Turns out that the trafficking issue as a crime in the modern-day world is almost every bit as big as the drug problem. Worse, the product of it, human beings, unlike drugs, is easier to ascertain and individually much more profitable. Furthermore, there are so few criminal prosecutions for trafficking that overall and in every regard it is well worth the risk to the traffickers.

So let’s get this straight. Let’s get a real understanding of the situation before actually looking deep into it.

Sexual exploitation is covered up, sometimes applauded, overlooked, apologized for, and/or generally regarded as some kind of less-than-terrible type of crime. This is so because many prominent people are somehow involved in it. Prominent people’s involvement keeps it secretive and un-discussed.

We, the tax payers, paid more than seventeen million dollars in settlements for the very secretive Congressional slush-fund. Unwittingly, we covered up our lawmakers’ sexual indiscretions.

Similarly, former President Bill Clinton took twenty-six rides on the Lolita Express owned by Jeffrey Epstein, a known pedophile. Clinton ditched his secret service people for the rides. Up there on that plane, it’s all about underage girls.

Then there’s Harvey Weinstein and Roman Polanski and about two hundred fifty other prominent people who’ve been accused of sexual misconduct (at its least) and rape (at its worst). Many of these people are media giants, major celebrities and lawmakers, so most of these prominent people go unpunished and/or relatively unscathed by their actions, actions which very often destroy their victims’ lives. Then they keep it all hush-hush.

Human trafficking and child trafficking are parts of this very secretive and relatively un-discussed issue. Trafficking as a crime, is   very   big business, but with all the prominent people tangentially involved in some realm of its sexual aspects, there are few prosecutions for it and it somehow remains low-priority. It has even become fodder for scoffing and ridicule, as the Democrats have now shown.

It gets much worse. Much worse.

Trafficking is inherently tied into our own child welfare system here in America. This is another reason it stays so under the radar, mostly unreported and hidden.

Human Trafficking 1

Ever wonder why nothing is done?  About the border? About illegal immigration?

Do you really believe that illegal aliens are entitled to be in America?

Do you really believe that illegal aliens are entitled to all the benefits that American citizens are entitled to? Entitled to all the programs that American citizens are entitled to? Are they entitled to vote? Hold public office?

Are they entitled to Social Security, the same Social Security that elderly American citizens have paid into all their lives? To free public housing? To food stamps? To the same medical care that American citizens avail themselves of after paying the premiums and after paying for Medicare all their lives? To get this for free without even being here legally? (Not talking about emergency care at an emergency room.)

Do you really subscribe to the notion the Democrats would have you believe that they really, really think that all people are equal and worthy? Do you really subscribe to the notion that the Democrats actually care about these people? About you? (If you remember, they turned down Trump’s DACA offer, a better offer than they proposed, simply because it came from Donald Trump.)

Said yesterday, from the movie: Well, pick your pill. “You take the blue   pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red   pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth.”

Do you get skeptical about the border problem? About other things?

Think nothing is done because it’s about money? About those rich capitalists who just want that cheap labor?

Think it’s about power? About those Despicable Dems who would offer anything to the illegals so they will flood into this country and ultimately vote Democratic?

Well, these are all real questions, questions each of us have to answer for ourselves, questions most of us answer depending upon the pill we’ve taken according to the choice as stated above.

One thing we rarely hear mentioned is the abuse heaped upon the women and female children crossing the border. Studies show that about 30% of females are sexually assaulted in one form or another and 10% are raped. These are accepted estimates,  conservative ones. It is difficult to get complete statistics because most cases of rape and sexual abuse go unreported.

The President and Vice President are criticized for mis-reporting statistics, as is the Director of Homeland Security. Personally, I have issue with the fact that rather than looking at the problem of sexual abuse and trafficking of children, the argument is over correct statistics. Or, the argument becomes political rather than about the issue itself.

Fact of the matter is that human trafficking worldwide is a about a 150 billion dollar business, second or third in value of all criminal enterprises. The third in the top three is counterfeiting and its value is hard to assess accurately. First is drugs.

Possibly one of the big reasons we hear so little about what’s going on at the border and about this part of the problem is because of the dollar value involved.

Again, depending on which pill you’ve swallowed and then upon what you want to believe and how you view things,  you will draw your own conclusions.

One thing is for sure. There are certain big, big money criminal interests with deep, deep pockets that have a vested interest in not solving our border crisis. These interests are deep into the exploitation of human beings. They want the problem downplayed,  kept silent, swept aside.

And so it goes.

More to come about child trafficking particularly here in the United States. A new series will begin shortly.

wysiwyg not

What they tell you you’re seeing is not what is. Or, WYSIWYG Not.

No, there’s no constitutional crisis.

No Trump is not medically or psychologically unfit for office.

No, Trump has not been more secretive or more obstructionist than other presidents.

No, Trump has not abused the constitution or his power.

No. What’s really going on and what they, the Despicable Dems and their mainstream media puppets, want you to believe is really going are two vastly different things.

No, that boy who stood his ground was not aggressive. He took no aggressive actions, made no forward steps toward anyone.

No, a MAGA hat is not a symbol of white supremacy.

And on and on, WYSIWYG Not.

The adage is that when you a point a finger at someone, three fingers are pointing back at you.

What it is.

No, a special prosecutor who stacks his team with all political opponents of the subject is not unbiased and fair-minded.

No, a special prosecutor who purposefully leaves his report such that the political opposition can continue to use it against a subject even though the report shows the subject did not do what accused of is not an apolitical report.

No, Comey is not a patriot.

No, the Steele dossier was not what it’s claimed to be.

No, Hillary did not tell the families of the people who died in Benghazi the truth.

No, Susan Rice was not telling the truth on TV when she talked about Benghazi being caused by a video.

No. She lied when she said it wasn’t organized terrorists.

No. The mainstream media is not unbiased.

No. Freedom of speech does not exist any longer on college campuses when they stop conservatives from speaking.

No. Kavanaugh was not presumed innocent   until proven guilty   by the Democrats .

No. The Democrats were not interested in more information to determine whether Kavanaugh was telling the truth.

No. They are not interested in more information regarding the Mueller report. (If they were, they’d read the less-redacted version, 99.9% un-redacted). None of the Democrats have read it.

WYSIWYG Not.

No. We are not seeing what really is.

Oh, I know. Those of either side who have drunk that side’s Kool-Aid think the other side is all wet. Think the other side is all wrong. Think their side is moral and virtuous and the only side truly interested in the betterment and well-being of our country.

Well, pick your pill. “You take the blue   pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red   pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth.”

Just be careful. One side is going around saying it speaks the will and wants of the American people and some other things to the effect that God is not political but if He were He wouldn’t be a Republican. That’s the side that endorses abortion even after the baby is born.

WYSIWYG Not!
