The Five Points of Liberalism-Part VI- Acceptance of The Absurd. Contortions of The Mind.



 

As I mentioned in the opening of this series a few months ago one of the things that kept Soviet Union society cohesive and peaceful was NOT the KGB, Secret Police or the Gulag. What kept the day to day life predictable and even keel was the ability of the citizenry to plug away each day knowing the lines would be long, bread would run out, gas rations never lasted the month and the light was always broken on the street corner. It was an innate feeling that this is just how life is under Communism; that in time they would rise above, overtake those selfish Capitalist pigs and Communism would be the future of the world.

It is the ability of the human animal to endure the unendurable in order to survive. It is why camp fulls of Jews in 1940 went to the chambers under a few armed guards. It is why truckloads of Christians were slaughtered by a few ISIS holding AK-47's. It is why tens of thousands of Venezuelans are held at bay by a couple dozen police with water cannons and tear gas. It is why Soviet citizens would stand in line for hours waiting for bread.

If we revisit the Five Points we close the loop at this point. And if you remember? One can enter this closed loop system at any point and all Five Points fall right into place.

A Lack of Principle allows for a Cognitive Dissonance. This separation of reality and removal of foundational truths makes it easy for one to be Convinced of their Position on an issue regardless of how it may run counter to a related issue a Liberal may be for or against. This is Selective Outrage. (As I quoted in the last segment from Dr. RD Laing). The employing of all these points demands a contortion of one's mind in order to make sense.

It requires an Acceptance of The Absurd.

In the Westborough Mass. District Court House there is a plaque with an Orwellian inscription. "Obedience to The Law is Liberty". This is a constant reminder to the poor saps who have to stand before a Judge with no idea of their Constitutional Rights. George Orwell himself wrote in '1984' about the ability of the masses to carry on their assigned tasks, waiting in line, keeping quiet. Once and awhile being Selectively Outraged because one of them dared to rebel. In the movie version Winston meets his neighbor while in prison. He asks why his neighbor is there. The neighbor says his own son turned him in because he heard him uttering 'un-words' while in his sleep. Though fictional, in this one scene all Five Points are employed at once leading to the final Acceptance of The Absurd allowing this man's own son to turn him into authorities.

Today, our society is rife with oxymoron's and contortions of the mind. The level is palpable to the point where 1 in 10 average persons are clinically, yet functionally insane. (Cornell U.). Between 2012 and 2014 the amount of school aged children nationwide on SSRI drugs reached 17%. (CDC). With this emerged a side affect of that epidemic. The school shootings. Yet, our societal-wide Cognitive Dissonance to the growth of mental illness and Selective Outrage towards guns (an object) allows for the dismissal of one simple Principle.

The Principle that society is totally fucked up.

Social Media has expanded upon this 1 in 10 concept. The billions of people who are logged in on the multitude of platforms are primarily narcissists, antagonists, trolls, angry and more than willing to shut you down. The algorithms from these companies are set up to allow the antagonist while censoring the person who speaks out.

Insanity is institutionalized.



You can argue facts all you wish. It won't matter. There are too many people Convinced they are right in how they 'feel'. A perfect example is the Anti-Trump hysteria gripping the Left, and many Republicans. It has become an anchor of their 2018 and 2020 election season. Where this comes from God only knows but one thing is for sure: It is based on an absolute falsehood.

This is textbook Acceptance of The Absurd. A fake dossier (admitted so by the author) becomes the basis of an investigation. This launches a nationwide, governmental witch hunt. Still 20 months and $50 million later no evidence has surfaced. It has gone so far badly that a former porn star from 2006 is now the focus. Sadly, the same people who are convinced of a failed Russian Collusion accusation are as convinced this porn star has all the answers. Just as every Congressional Hearing from witnesses where the media was convinced this was the smoking gun, none of this has presented the evidence that President Trump is guilty of anything.

None of this matters. An entire media industry and scores of Americans are sure that President Trump is guilty of.... Something. And this Acceptance of The Absurd fuels this societal-wide psychosis.

It may have deep and lasting political ramifications our Republic wont recover from.
As we always see.. The Left thrives on crisis.. A crisis (as Rahm Emmanuel once said) should never go to waste. In fact it has become so commonplace with the Left to protest everything and anything that it is losing it's ability to mean anything anymore. People get tired of this crap after awhile.



In the book, 'The Tea Party-Three Principles', Elizabeth Price Foley puts forth her premise:

1; Limited Government

2; Unapologetic American Sovereignty

3; Constitutional Originalism



If you take these three 'principles' then all "feel-good" arguments lose merit. The entire Convictions of Position (as I posit in my blog) of beliefs and feelings hold no bearing on what is rooted in our Foundation.

The entire Leftist mantra is lost in it's own (as Jefferson said) "..foggy field.." Outside the preview of these these principles. Outside the purview of our Constitution. Sure, we can claim 'rights', we can claim 'demands' but as Alvin Toffler said in his book 'Future Shock' those voices become sub-groups all clamoring at the teat of our Republic.. Demanding this.. Demanding that.. All the while destroying the very pillars on which our society is based upon.
The Bible states clearly about a house built upon sand. That, as political winds shift that house cannot stand. However, a house built upon rock (principle) can weather any shifting sand (or, political wind).

And it is this Acceptance of The Absurd that we find ourselves today. Always shifting. Always holding a wet finger to the wind to see which way we should go. Outside that prevue, in that, "..foggy field.." Our foundation has become lost.

Recently we have become fixated upon the rhetoric from a 17 year old who has become the poster boy for gun control. David Hogg is now the point person who has the finger on the pulse of America that demands more gun legislation.

Now, before you blindly accept his rational you must first look back at simple principles that you enact upon every day in your lives as parents: And those principles are,

When have you EVER taken advise from a 17 year old on anything? Is it NOT your job as a parent for the child to listen to YOU (the parent)? Are you NOT the protector and educator of said child? Sooo, then why is this kid now become the be all and end all of the conversation around gun control?

Would you take marriage advise from a 17 year old? Investment advise from a 17 year old? So, why is it we are putting this kid up as the arbiter of the 2nd Amendment?

Because we Accept the Absurd.

The Left is calling out Laura Ingraham because she had the audacity to call this child and his Leftist Media sycophants out. Immediately cries of boycotts swirled around social media. Meanwhile Leftist Media outlets called Laura a "Nazi pig'.. Perfectly OK.. But her challenging the legitimacy of this person was considered worthy of censure and boycott.

This is Absurd. Yet we are Accepting of it. We are Selectively Outraged by one person's rhetoric while ignoring the rhetoric of the other side. We, Cognitively Disconnect to fit the Conviction of our Position because...

.. We are Lacking in Principle..

Rush Limbaugh was sure that the Feminists would call this out. How dare you call a woman a 'pig'.. No, this does not fit the narrative of The Absurd. No Feminist came to the defense of Laura Ingraham. As a bumper sticker once displayed ".. Its not that she is a woman, she is a Republican.."

Lets visit more Absurdity as we go further down this rabbit hole; If you are proposing that you cannot own a weapon until 21 then why would we listen to a 17 year old on guns? On that same level of Absurdity why then would you claim that a person is unable to own a gun, drink, rent a car until the age of 21 yet demand that the voting age be lowered to 16 (Gutteriez/Braude). How do you you square this round hole? How does one rationalized this?

Liberals don't.

It does not matter how it is rationalized it only matters that you get enough Cognitively Disconnected people without Principles to champion your Convictions who are Outraged at what the current outrage is all about. As Dr. Hacker explained; they ACT before they think.

Liberalism demands reactionary-ism. Liberalism demands a constant manufacturing of anger, separatism, victim-hood, class warfare, a constant barrage of the 'have's' and the 'have-not's'. This is why Communism never survived. It was always a struggle between classes and ideology. Capitalism over Collectivism. Conservatism knows none of these bromides. Liberalism is constantly indoctrinating the youth of America to supply a fresh generation of 'useful idiots'. A fresh generation of the disenfranchised.
How has Republicanism and Conservatism 'stolen' from the poor? We wish only for the growth of economy. The growth of and expansion of Freedom and Liberty. Let everyone rise and be who they want to be. Get Government out of the way.. Get all of the Advocates out of the way.. Leave everyone the F alone..
This is probably why Hillary Clinton still has traction. She presents herself as the woman scorned, the stolen election.. The victim of a misogynist, white male dominated society. This is also why the homosexual community must indoctrinate youth and demand laws to be accepted (absurdly) as normal. Homosexuality is not a 'natural order of things' (Dr. Scott Lively). It cannot exist on it's own merits. It is NOT principle based.

2014 and 2018 Gubernatorial Candidate for Massachusetts Dr. Scott Lively was so gracious to come onto my radio show. We spoke about this very subject.



His thesis was simple; that God has set into motion certain laws and these laws are immovable. Our human interpretation of these laws has lead us to our Judeao-Christian roots that which our nation is founded upon. These laws are also found in the Torah, 10 Commandments, many Buddhists texts, Hindu texts and our Constitution. What we are experiencing now is a complete repudiation of all we have known for over two millennia. It is as if all the laws of God (and science) are now up to interpretation.

More frighten?

Adulteration.

If we are able to negate God we can negate our individualism. We negate our sovereignty. We can negate our principles. Everything becomes interpretative. It becomes how one 'feels'.

We even adopt the idea that our self absorbed man-centric absurdity is what we 'believe'.

This is also how we have lost all semblance of rational thinking and old fashion Common Sense. In a brilliant article written April 8th 2018 by Dr. Michael Hurd he opines with this perfect assessment of society today:


" Common sense used to be a great concept. Unfortunately, it has been co-opted and abused by irrational people. Today’s culture is FULL of irrationality and irrational people, more than ever before."
"What is common sense? It refers to the self-evident based upon the fairly easily provable. The way we use the phrase common sense today is not that way.


At its best, common sense is not a substitute for highly technical or specialized knowledge. It’s a way of coping with the limited knowledge most of us have in a highly specialized world. It’s a way of insisting we reason and think about both what we do know and do not know."

" People who say "common sense", in today’s context, often want to bypass the reasoning required to make their claim about something highly questionable, radical or untenable."

" Increasingly, common sense is a tactic of intimidation.... The purpose of such shaming is to arrest or obliterate dissension or discussion. It’s intellectual dishonesty or fraudulent elitism at its worst...The death of common sense was inevitable in a culture where reason has been slowly perishing for some time...."

    This leaves us only with Absurdity. There is an old saying that goes; "In a world of insanity, insane becomes the only way". In a conversation with one of my Liberal nemesis' on Social Media I found myself astonished at his interpretation of our Constitution (surprise-surprise). He described the additional Amendments as an expansion of Rights and the First Amendment as protection of speech from Government intrusion. I hardly see the 16th and 18th Amendments as 'expansions of Rights'. And he fails to grasp the simple concept of ".. shall not be infringed". In fact he fails to grasp the entire concept of our Constitution all together. He angled his argument from the idea that the Constitution 'gives us rights'. If this were true then a sweep of the pen and all those rights disappear.


And trust me! There are plenty of activists out there openly campaigning for such an idea!

It became impossible for me to get through his thick skull (and this is an educated man in radio and media himself) that rights simply exists. They are not 'given' to us by any man or government. They are (as Jefferson pointed out in the Declaration) ".. self evident..". Or, as Dr. Hurd would posit; 'Common Sense'.

This lack of collective (common sense) understanding of our Constitution further erodes our collective (common sense) understanding of our system of government. Nothing grinds my gears more than the use of the word 'Democracy' when talking about The United States. It dates back to Detouqueville. Though his observations of early American life are eloquent, his basic understanding of a Constitutional Republic was lost in his well steeped European mind. In the very early days of our Republic we lacked sufficient Professors in the few colleges so we imported Academics from Europe. Again, these people (though highly educated and esteemed in their circles) lacked basic understanding of a Constitutional Republic.

It has been ever thus as my mother would say. Franklin was correct when he remarked to the woman outside Independence Hall; ".. a Republic, if you can keep it.."

Today people react with incredulity when you claim that we are NOT a Democracy. This is why Progressives constantly turn to Hillary winning 'the popular vote' as reason why she should be President. They are convinced of this and no amount of factual, historical precedence will pry them away from such Absurdities. The term is bandied about with no thought at all. The concept has filtered to our public offices and schools where Biblical quotes are removed because it violates the absurd notion of '.. separation of church and state..' No such thing exists. It manifests itself in equally absurd notions that America is ".. a Nation of Immigrants..". No! We are NOT!

This from a woman who slept her way into political office; Kamal Harris:
https://www.facebook.com/IJRBlue/videos/1982269788696243/

    In a stunning display of dysfunction one of the characters from the Parkland shooting Emma Gonzalez openly admitted she bullied and taunted Nikolas Cruz for years. She is now one of the spokespeople for national disarmament. Her challenging of Dana Loesch was seen as brave but it was the way her question was perfectly scripted to fit the narrative and how CNN posted the question on the screen. Watch..


 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwHVAWDamvQ

    In the realm of the sublime, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has proclaimed there is ".. no need to carry a knife..". London has instituted a 'Stop and Search' Policy.

In London there has been a concerted effort to reign in Knife Violence. The rise in crime from knife related incidents has skyrocketed. There is now 'Common Sense Knife Regulation' in London. Of course real criminals have neither observed this law or care to. What has resulted in is regular people being labeled as criminals. We all know that this policy will only apply to white, male, citizens. Because, targeting black, African, refugees will be considered 'racial profiling'.. Regardless of the preponderance of crimes committed by black, African refugees.

It takes a contortion of the mind to Accept the Absurd. The purposeful disregard of Common Sense and the adoption of Cognitive Dissonance fractures normal thinking. Is it any wonder why mental illness is on the rise? Why so many people are prescribed psycho-active drugs by the millions?

An entire media industry promotes, extols upon and insists that The Absurd is the paradigm. Any challenge to it is summarily singled out. There is no more rational behavior, let alone moral behavior. The FBI gets away with whatever it wants, The Elite gets away with whatever they want. Murder, rape, human trafficking, rigged elections.. The attempted take down of a Presidency...

"... And if that wasn't evil enough. We get the drunken and passionate pride of the citizen along for the ride..." Rush.

I have played a piece many times on my show titled "The Story of Your Enslavement". We are so afraid to see the cage we are born into. We are so afraid to see the farm we are forced to work in. We Accept the Absurd because it keeps life steady, keeps life.. Quiet. It is the reason why nothing ever gets done. Nothing gets solved. Diseases never cured. People still poor. Entire nations wrenched with war. Religion and Ideologies at each other's throats.. Constantly.. All of it... Always.. Constantly..

To lose your Principles you become Cognitively Dissonant as you Selectively Outrage, Convinced of your Position (however Impossible) until you find yourself one day Contorting your mind and....

.... Accepting the Absurd..

To see the cage is to be free....

The Five Points of Liberalism- Part V.- Selective Outrage

1; Trump is NOT my President!

President Trump needs to ban assault weapons!

How can President Trump ban assault weapons if he is NOT your President?

2; Defy the Federal law on Illegals, Sanctuary Cities and Marijuana.

We need tougher Federal Gun Laws.

How can we enforce tougher gun laws if you won't enforce other existing laws?

3; Women must be allowed access to unrestricted abortion.

The Death Penalty is cruel and unusual punishment and must be banned.

It's OK to kill an innocent child in the womb but not OK to execute a convicted murderer.

4; President Trump is an idiot, moron, etc

President Trump colluded with Russians to win the election.

How can POTUS be a complete retard yet still be intelligent enough to conspire with a foreign government to alter the votes of over 120 million people and an entire Electoral College?

5; Christianity must never be taught in public schools. It violates the separation of church and state.

(Even though no such 'separation' exists)

Islam must be taught in public schools as part a larger program of 'diversity'.

( I am not even going to expand on this lunacy).

6; Former President Obama signs an UnConstitutional EO concerning DACA.

President Trump refuses to renew it and has referred it to the proper Constitutional role of Congress to decide. A Circuit Court Judge rules against the decision as (you guessed it), UnConstitutional..

Speaking of Executive Orders..

7; During the Iranian Hostage crisis in 1979 President Carter signs an EO banning Iranian students from entering the US. No one disagrees.

President Trump bans specific people from 7 specific countries known to harbor terrorists and are also known to be failed states. He is a racist.

8; At a recent appearance by Sen. Warren in Massachusetts she spoke of the importance of everyone being allowed to partake in ".. our Democracy."

Former Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton recently Tweeted of the dangers Social Media poses to ".. our Democracy."

(Side Note: We are NOT a Democracy)

9; Corporations are not 'people' and should be banned from donating to campaigns.

Corporations should be taxed at the maximum amount.

If corporations are not 'people', why are they being taxed?

10; "Military style weapons have no place on American Streets." Pres. Obama.

After the Boston Marathon bombing Military style vehicles, weapons and uniforms patrolled American streets.

Each of these examples could easily be 'explained away' by any Liberal. The simple act of doing so is not only an example of the expansion of Selective Outrage it is also an example of Acceptance of The Absurdity. But that is for the next segment of this series.

In the 1977 book, "Crusaders, Criminals, Crazies" Dr. Frederick Hacker writes on page 145 this on Selective Outrage: How it it constructed and how it manifests.

" In.. compulsery thought.. established internalizations are first dislodged of their anchorage.. by denunciation of the sources and content of the former introjected values... then persons and symbols are offered as recipients of that ..ego.. to act in lieu of and on behalf of that individual.."

Essentially, the idea is that one is subjected to being pissed off about what is happening right now. None of it based on 'content' or 'principle', but rather, what is current and the crisis 'de-jour'. Always acting out. Never being pro-active aside from pro-acting upon one's 'acting out'. Subject to change as the political winds blow.

This current debate on gun control following the Florida shooting is prime example. Always reacting at the moment but never taking into account 'content' (as Dr. Hacker explained). Always 'dislodge' the anchor of our Constitution in lieu of a new axiom as it pertains to the crisis de-jour.

This is dysfunctional.

In 1964 Dr. R.D. Laing wrote; " The social adaptation of a dysfunctional society may be dangerous.."

We are at that point today The entire dysfunction of our society is displayed on social media every single day. We are outraged at whatever comes across our screens at any moment. This is 'GroupThink'

Dr. Hacker goes on to say; " Full membership in the...group is granted only in the.. Submitting to.. and induced to perform actions with and for the group..he will be firmly welded into the unit because his internal demands for consistency will compel him to to talk and and think as he has acted..."

One must always be Selectively Outraged at that which one is programmed to be outraged by. Content, context means nothing. Current Convictions of Positions must apply. Cognitave Dissonance exists on this compulsion because there is a Lack of Principle. ER-go. You Accept The Absurd.

All Five Points of Liberalism come once again into play.

Look at the Vagina Hats, Millenials, ANTIFA. None of what they say or protest is based on principle or content or context. It is always 're-actionary'. Based soley on how outraged they are. Compelled to talk and think as they act.

I had a great conversation with Dr. Scott Lively on my show about the ability of the Left to be who they are and act as they do. He explained how the Left accepts 'random-ness'; that everything is hap-hazard and there is no God and everything just comes about as it does. This is why men can use a woman's bathroom or why abortion is perfectly acceptable because everything today is totally random. This is why the Left is able to act upon whatever happens NOW and project that into action for whatever cause they 'feel' is important at that moment.

But, as Dr. Lively explained on my radio show, there is a natural order to things. There are 'principles' that have defined centuries of civilization. Regardless of your religious beliefs one must admit that there must be an order to things. There are certain behaviors of society. If I might adopt a Socialist axiom here? Are we NOT (as a society) supposed to be working together for a greater good? The betterment of mankind?

If not? Then why are the Five ponts of Liberalism I have explained in the past blogs so much the hegemony of our society today?

Because..

We are all Selectively Outraged. Conservatives as well. Angered at what we see and re-acting as such. Our mindset is based on what we are convinced of.

Dr. Hacker, "... very difficult, yet very principled to distinquish between legitimate and illegitimate aggression.."

Dr. R.D Laing, " We begin with the children... catch them in time... thorough and rapid brainwashing.. we shall turn them into imbeciles.. with high IQ's.. if possible.."

So they may be all vapid yet reactionary at how Selectively Outraged they are tonight, tomorrow and the day after that..

....And That Is The Diatribe....

The Five Points of Liberalism- Part IV- Conviction of Position/The Impossible



 

George Barnes wrote an interesting piece in the Telegram and Gazette on Jan 27th. 2018 on welcoming the world to our melting pot. He opines on the altruism of unfettered immigration to our country. He employs the commonly used Conviction of Position that the United States is "..a nation of immigrants.." This is an utter falsehood.

First of all, we are a Soveriegn nation. As far as our history of immigration is concerned we are NOW the descendants of immigrants. Actual documented and adjudicated 'immigrants' who take the Oath and join as Citizens number only a few hundred thousand a year. This hardly qualifies in a country of 350 million (or so) as a nation of immigrants.

What we are?

Is a Soveriegn nation with a serious border control issue!

This is the reality; but Liberals are convinced of their position, outraged at the idea of any discussion on this issue and accepting the absurdity that we actually ARE a nation of immigrants.

Dictionary.com defines 'Conviction' as;
noun.

1. a fixed or firm belief:

4. the act of convincing a person by argument or evidence.

5. the state of being convinced.
I left out 2-3 because it dealt with criminal convictions.

Bing.com does it one better..
a firmly held belief or opinion:
synonyms: belief · opinion · view · thought · persuasion · idea · position · stance ·


the quality of showing that one is firmly convinced of what one believes or says:
synonyms: certainty · certitude · assurance · confidence · sureness ·


 
Notice none of these definitions have anything to do with facts. The ability to convince someone of something is alot easier than you would think. All it takes is a day to day, slow, methodical inserting of words and phrases over a period of time and soon it becomes a social lexicon.

I mentioned how the use of the term 'American Democracy' is now rooted in our lexicon. We are not a Democracy.

Every time we have a heat wave, hurricane, blizzard it is now the absurdly accepted Conviction of Position that it is all because of Anthropogenic Climate Change.

These are just small examples. Just perk up your ears and listen to the way people and pundits maximize the use of such phrases.

It matters not the presenting of alternative facts. In fact if Conservatives adopted the concept of Liberalism and presented how opposing people 'felt' or, 'believed' or, were 'convinced' of they would be laughed out of cable news!.. But that is Selective Outrage and will be discussed in the next blog segment.

Conservatives are always held to facts, yet are disregarded anyways. Liberals have the finger on the pulse of society.
In an old Rush song the line goes; ".. we get the drunken and the passionate pride of the citizens along for the ride.."
Getting back to George Barnes and his opine in the T&G. He writes further to talk about his Irish heritage.

Look.. Every one of us has an anectdote. We all came from somewhere and from some one. Liberals want to segregate and define our individualism. It is the only way Liberals can to steal that last vestige of our intrinsict and birthright fact that we are Americans.

By accepting the absurd that we are a 'nation of immigrants' can Liberals further define us and label us separate as.. Simply... Americans.
 
So, how is it Liberals are so easily convinced of their positions?
Pete Townsend of The Who once wrote; ".. cuz ya know that the hyptnotized never lie.. Do-Ya!"

It comes from indocrination. It comes from years of the same metaphors, worn out songs on the Hit Station! Teachers using textbooks written by Liberal revisionists. Eventually we get masses of millions completely devoid of critical thinking and easy, empty vassals (not vessels). And don't they all just agree on the Absurdly Accepted mantra?

Mark Dice does great video expose's where Liberals pontificate on positions they know nothing about. They do so because they are taught to regurgitate predetermined answers to everything and anything. Ami Horowitz did the video blowing the lid off the myth of voter ID being racist. Here is the link;

https://www.dcstatesman.com/filmmaker-shows-liberals-really-think-black-people/

What is thoroughly entertaining about this video is the reaction of the black Americans he interviews. The white Liberals he interviews are so dyed in their convictions the boiler plate explanations roll off their tongues with little effort and even less thought! Whereas the black's reaction runs the gammit of incredulity to outright laughter. Sadly, what is not mentioned in the video is the underlying premise that Liberals think blacks are stupid, lazy and generally poor.

Convictions are difficult to alter. There are entire safeguards in place to reinforce these convictions in the minds of the empty vassals. Television plays an important role and is an important tool. What we see and hear is carefully choreographed to fit a narrative, promote that narrative even justify it's existence.The talking heads of most major networks are the mouthpieces of an editorial board that hands them the talking points. This, in turn, is read from the teleprompter to an eager audience. The advent of internet media and alternative news sources would make one think that the likes of CNN or MSNBC would alter their tactic or risk losing more of their audience share. Instead, they double down on the narrative. This is purposeful.

The audience these outlets have chosen to cater to are the extreme Left. The 1% population of trans, gay, Socialists, Anarchists, Enviro-wackos, Militant Feminists, ANTIFA and the easily 'Triggered'. Better known as Millenials. Tactically this is ingenius. Reinforce a narrative to a specific audience receptive to said narrative. An audience convinced of their position and unlikely to be swayed from that conviction.

Unfortunately, conviction of position stymies growth. Having a set idea of something that is unwavering shuts out the ability to see and understand a position that differs from your own. This is why the 'tolerant' Left tends to become very intolerable when faced with opposing viewpoints. The rioting at Berkely over Milo Yanopolous, the recent ANTIFA crowds at the two Boston Free Speech Rallies, the shouting down of speakers at college events. There is no lack of examples. Seattle Washington was the latest in rioting by the tolerant Left because some one came to excersise their Constitutional Right of Free Speech.

Shortly after the Charlottesville riot I went on air to discuss the event. I repeatedly remarked how I was not defending the Nazis but that they have every right to practise, speak and peacably assemble. As difficult as this may seem to the reader how I felt about the First Amendment had nothing to do with the facts of the First Amendment. I don't like the Nazis any more than you do but that has nothing to do with facts.

More of the lexicons used to reinforce the conviction of position are the 'phobics'. Homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic. Every description under the sun to showcase an imagined unreasonable fear of one group or another. What is always missing when these terms are tossed around is Oikaphobic, the unreasonable fear of oneself or one's own culture.

When the principle that children should not be exposed to homosexuality is presented the term homophobic is thrown at you. When the principle that no matter how many body parts you alter you cannot change the X or Y chromosome is presented the term transphobic is thrown at you. It is all well and good that a person feels this way or, believes these things it is just a position that is being taken and has no impact upon the facts presented or the fact that these facts are factual.

Finally, one last thing that is hardly mentioned anymore is the old adage that one person's rights end where another person's rights begin. The conviction of position throws this out. A certain position becomes the lexicon and therefore any one who disagrees with it therefore must have something wrong with them. So, a George Barnes who insists that we are a nation of immigrants is simply carrying the water for the already convinced and becomes legitimate in his position. They have every right to feel this way. Whatever facts are presented to the contrary are irrelavent and whoever holds to those principles have no rights at all.

I am convinced of it.
 
.... And That Is The Diatribe....

The Five Points of Liberalism, Part III - Cognitive Dissonance

Wikipedia defines Cognitive Dissonance as; In the field of psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort (psychological stress) experienced by a person who simultaneously holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values. The occurrence of cognitive dissonance is a consequence of a person performing an action that contradicts personal beliefs, ideals, and values; and also occurs when confronted with new information that contradicts said beliefs, ideals, and values.[1][2]



The actual mental disorder is supposed to be discomforting. A cognitive person would recognize this and seek to avoid it or at least recognize it and dismiss one of the two opposing thoughts as false. This is what normal people do. Not Liberals. Liberalism demands that you hold fast to both contradictory thoughts at the same time while defending both of them at the same time.

Wikipedia goes on to state; In A Theory of Cognitive Dissonance (1957), Leon Festinger proposed that human beings strive for internal psychological consistency in order to mentally function in the real world. A person who experiences internal inconsistency tends to become psychologically uncomfortable and is motivated to reduce the cognitive dissonance. This is done by changing parts of the cognition to justify the stressful behavior, by adding new parts to the cognition that causes the psychological dissonance, or by actively avoiding social situations and contradictory information that are likely to increase the magnitude of the cognitive dissonance.[1]



In the first part Festinger posits that normal people seek an equilibrium. Find the fact and disregard the absurd. The mental (and physical) discomfort experienced by some one who is cognitively dissonant will justify the psychosis. In many cases we have seen over the past decade Snowflakes resort to name calling, violence and a demand that the opposing thought that corrects the dissonance be silenced. Vagina Hats dress up as vaginas, gays march half dressed waving dildos at parades, actresses wear revealing dresses at Golden Globes while they decry sexual abuse yet Donald Trump is a serial sexual abuser and needs to be impeached. Trump (a tv celebrity billionaire with no political experience) is not qualified to be President. Oprah Winfrey (a tv celebrity billionaire with no political experience) is being pushed to be the 2020 Democrat Candidate. Another perfect example is the 'He is not my President' position. A cognitively dissonant person holds this as a truism in their mind while disregarding the tangible fact that Trump IS THE PRESIDENT! Cognitive Dissonance.

Lets revisit the 11 Commandments of Lie-Awatha Warren (talk about the personification of Cognitive Dissonance). This little gem is a treasure trove of CD.

"We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement.."

For what? There are already library cart loads of fine print 3" binders full of SEC rules and regulations. Is she stating that there are NO rules presently? Remember what I said in the last piece about politicians who want ".. to do more.."? The fact that she opens this sentence with '..we believe..' is axiomatic of a Liberal's position based rather than a principle based doctrine.


In a past blog I wrote years ago about how Congress and Senate people were involved in insider trading I proved that the main reason many of these hacks became multi-millionaires is because they own stock (perfectly legal). However, because they write and enact legislation they are front and center to know beforehand which companies are going to grow and which will die. (Obamacare is a one of many examples). If you don't believe me then read the book by Peter Sweisser 'Throw Them All Out'.

Of course, President Trump must divest himself from all his business dealings and reveal his tax records.

If you or I had this insider knowledge we would be in jail. These mobsters just get re-elected. But, because of CD this is perfectly acceptable (Acceptance of the Absurd). It is a closed loop system.
"We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth."

But there are 63 different Genders based on how a person 'feels'. Let that one sink in while I refresh my Irish coffee..BRB.


It is bad enough (if we accept the absurd that humans are destroying the planet) with two genders consuming limited resources. Now there are 63 that require we cater to each and every one of their demands. We need to rewrite textbooks, hang new bathroom signs, designate parking spaces, create new forms for applications, clothing, food needs, locker rooms and educational services.. The list is endless. The carbon footprint must be astronomical! But under CD this is a necessary to be a more tolerant and diverse society.

Science is never settled. The entirety of human history is rife with 'settled' science being debunked based on new discoveries. Interestingly, many of these new discoveries have come from accidents, catastrophes, and people who have more balls than brains pushing boundaries. At the turn of the 20th Century many of the early, failed experimenters of flight published articles in reputable periodicals that human flight was impossible. The public absorbed this and believed that the science was settled. Fortunately for us all two brothers who built motorcycles had a different idea. In fact, many acclaimed scientists at the time derided the Orvilles. How could two grease monkeys building motorized bicycles know anything about the intricacies of flight?
"We believe that the Internet shouldn't be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality."

At least here we see Warren claiming that free market Capitalism should be replaced by the all knowing, all seeing eye of benevolent Government. Corporations bad. Goverment good. Unfortunately Senator Warren is forgeting one, tiny fact. Government is ALSO a corporation.


This is the CD Liberals are afflicted by. While simultaneously claiming corporations are not people Warren wants to tax them to the fullest extent and then deny them access to representation. Net Neutrality is based on a 1934 law regulating communications under a Public Utility. It has no application on a 21st Century market that has exploded around the world. The repeal of The Fairness Doctrine under President Reagan unleashed the cable TV industry, internet, talk radio and people like myself. Under the Warren idea (while claiming we are are an 'equal' society) Net Neutrality would restrict or ban the plethora of diverse voices we now see on the World Wide Web. Even those we would disagree with or find most abhorrant. Net Neutrality runs counter to The First Amendment.

See? I told you this little gem is a treasure trove of Cognitive Dissonance.
"We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage."

Here is a perfect example of something I have said many times on my radio show. Under economically bad conditions the cry for minimun wage increases becomes the news de-jour. Under economically good conditions the natural rise of wages is inevitable. The need for workers becomes a demand. Companies are willing to pay more for qualified people. While this natural rise will lead to price increases the old adage of 'a rising tide' applies here. The Laffer Curve is a principle. It is based on a fundemental truth. More people working means higher wages, means higher prices, means more growth demanding more high paid workers.


Again, pointing to research and past blogs I have written; forcing an artificial raise in wages does not eliminate poverty (a principle). It only pushes that low skilled, low paid worker into a higher tax bracket (a position). The imagined raise in pay is taxed at that higher rate. Subsequently the prices of essentials rises also (to pay for that wage increase) and the low paid worker is no better off. What brings about a full and extensive economic rise for people is the unfettered growth of Capitalism and a standard of taxation that is representative, fair and equal. This is also a principle.

I could consume this piece with example after example from Chief Warren. Suffice to say, look it up and come to your own conclusions. Lets move on.

CD is ever present in our news feeds today. Almost each day one story contradicts a story from last week while at the same time holding onto both stories to explain whatever the hell it is the Liberal media is presenting to us. It matters NOT what facts are presented. Agenda is the main driver. It is point # 3, Conviction of Position, that is the be all and end all of what drives the Cognitive Dissonance.

Lets look at what is present today in the alledged statement that President Trump called certain countries 'shitholes'. A normal person would agree... Yeah, they are shitholes. Because a normal person dis-connects from the CD to accept the fact while disposing of the absurd. Liberals do not. Both thoughts exist at the same time. These countries are NOT shitholes despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The idea of it is racist while many of these 'immigrants' have no intention of assimilating and any demand they do so is (in and of itself) racist. It is not like we are importing the next Einstein or Fermie or DeSousa. Somehow America must change while these countries do not have to change. In fact, the entire concept of 'Sanctuary Cities' does not just apply to Illegals. It applies to to any group of people. Come to our cities to escape your shithole country and we will work to accept, assuage, adopt your culture thus turning our city into the very shithole you emigrated from. The adoption of Sharia Law in many communities to appear more diverse. English as a 'second' language (God forbid it should be first), no-go zones. Islamburg in upstate NY and Dearbornistan in Michigan. Kate Steinly murder in California. Islamic rape gangs in Oslo, Cologne, Paris and Nice.

It is here all Five Points come into play. It is a closed loop system.

Any attempt to point these out is racist and runs counter to the Acceptance of The Absurd. It Compartmentalizes the Outrage, Liberals are Convinced of their Position. It is Cognitive Dissonance. And none of it is based on any Principle.

 

.... And That Is The Diatribe....

 
According to cognitive dissonance theory, there is a tendency for individuals to seek consistency among their cognitions (i.e., beliefs, opinions). When there is an inconsistency between attitudes or behaviors (dissonance), something must change to eliminate the dissonance.

The Five Points of Liberalism - Part II, Lack of Principles




 
A quick Google Search defines Pinciple as: a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning... a rule or belief governing one's personal behavior... morally correct behavior and attitudes...


late Middle English: from Old French, from Latin principium ‘source,’ principia (plural) ‘foundations,’ from princeps, princip- ‘first, chief.’

 
The foundational principles this nation was based on are Judeo-Christian. These principles have been repeated for as long as I can remember. Mention that to any modern day millenial and they will have an anurism. Because we have lost the 'principle' of a well balanced education our young people are quick to relate their 'position' on an issue as a 'principle'. The two are unrelated.

Positions can change according to new data (or at least they should). Principles are unwavering. They only change if a monumental, colossal shift in a person's life occurs. Both Principle and Position are nouns, so they are things, tangible and usable. As stated a principle is foundational, fundamental. Position (if you do that same Google Search) is defined as more of a strategic place to be. However as the definitions are spelled we can see how position and principle are confused as one and the same: a person's particular point of view or attitude toward something.... (Logic) a proposition laid down or asserted; a tenet or assertion... synonyms: viewpoint, opinion, outlook, attitude, stand, standpoint, stance, perspective, approach, slant, thinking, policy, feelings.. "the government's position on the matter".

It is that last synonym that sums it all up. Feelings. Listen closely when some one tries to define their 'position' on something. They always ".. feel as if...", or ".. I feel that it was unfair..." Feelings have no place when it comes to principles. Our Declaration of Independence opens with these words, ".. We hold these truths to be self evident.." The Founders didn't 'feel' these 'positions' as self evident. That is an impossibility. Feelings and positions are by no stretch of the imagination self evident.


Issac Newton's Laws of motion were not based on how he felt. They were based on exhaustive inquiry, testing and a realization that there were certain things a person cannot change no matter how they felt about it.
Sir Isaac Newton first presented his three laws of motion in the "Principia Mathematica Philosophiae Naturalis" in 1686.


His first law states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force.
The second law explains how the velocity of an object changes when it is subjected to an external force. The law defines a force to be equal to change in momentum (mass times velocity) per change in time.

The third law states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Since Liberalism requires one to not have any principles then the first first law does not apply to them. No matter how hard one tries Liberals cannot be moved from their positions. Nor does the second law apply. Liberals never change their zeal, tactics or penchant for subterfuge to gain power. Possibly the only law that applies to Liberals is the third one. Usually when a person offers an opposing viewpoint, reaction or fact the Liberal usually loses their minds.

The abortion debate is a perfect area to begin this defining of what a principle is. People are always asked what their position is on abortion. I have NO position. My principle is that the Government should not be involved in people's private lives. If Government held steady to that 'principle' then the debate over taxpayer funded abortion would evaporate. And if it is your 'position' that women should be allowed access to abortions then YOU do it! Let Planned Parenthood come up a better way of providing abortions at the lowest cost possible. Maybe set up an easy payment plan for the poor. If the idea of Planned Parenthood is so fantastic then why can it not stand on it's own principle?

Most agencies, programs, entitlements are not principle based. They are there to provide assistance in regards to an ongoing societal problem such as poverty. In fact the vast majority of social programs are rooted in the position of alleviating poverty. Certainly not to eliminate poverty. If that were the goal of these agencies then after awhile that agency would cease to exist. This is the position that HHS, SSI, TANF, Welfare in general stand on. Never working towards a goal based on the principle of eliminating poverty.

Author and economist Loren Spivak (euphemistically known as The Free Market Warrior) has spoken eloquently on the concept of Progressives having no principles. In the video below he outlines a few principles that are held sacred by Conservatives. The first one is Free Speech. Under no uncertain terms is anyone to be denied the right to speak, publish, report or assemble to speak what they hold as a principle or a position. Liberals think decidedly differently on this subject. They have no problem employing the thug tactics of ANTIFA to shut down any group they deem offensive especially on college campuses where the Liberal Free Speech protests of the 1960's began. That is because ( as Spivak says at the 5:10 mark) ".. Liberals have no principles at all because they are a movement of power..."



If you google The 11 Commandments of Progressivism you will see the tenets espoused by Liberal Elizabeth Warren. The humerous part of all this is that none of them are principles. They are just feelings about various issues. The most interesting one being #11; "And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!"

That cannot be a principle because it is an oxymoron and none of what Warren states is even related. If corporations are not people then why do we tax corporations? And what do women's bodies have to do with Hobby Lobby? The other ten are just as all over the map as this one is. You see, a principle is simple, usually a single sentence. If you go through the Warren list every "principle" contradicts itself. She claims "..equal means equal.." but is going to deny Hobby Lobby and treat them as unequal. She claims to believe in science but wants Net Neutrality. The scientific and Free Market is what makes the internet great not government control.

Like the useful idiots of the Communist Revolution once a person is no longer of use to the Party they are discarded. Just as a position is discarded in favor a new one, especially one that gets you elected.

A common saying of the Left is; "Speak truth to power". This is a dubious statement. Unfortunately it is used ad-nauseum. It is substance-less. It basically states that whatever it is YOU believe should be championed. It claims that whatever your position is on an issue should be empowered. Not the facts of an issue but, your position on that issue.

Speaking to the power of truth is principle based. Truth (in and of itself) is very powerful. There is no way around it. It simply just is. If Liberals adopted this simple axiom their entire agenda would be in jeopardy. You can take any Liberal position, apply truth to it and the entire argument dissolves. This simply cannot be allowed because speaking truth to power allows flexibility. It allows you to hold two diametrically opposed thoughts in your head at the same time while accepting both of them. This is also known as a form of psychosis.

Principle based positions are unwavering. They are based on fundamental truths.

.... And That Is The Diatribe....

Five Points Of Liberalism - Part I

" Find me the man and I will find you the crime.." Joseph Stalin




    It has taken me a number of years but I think I can finally  detail the intricate workings of the Liberal mind. It is a dangerous place to be. It really is a form of psychosis. It varies in intensity from individual to individual. Some are very mild, you would never know it. They function as fully cognitive citizens of society. Others are radical and violent. However they all share a set of rationalizations that are common throughout.




 
1; Acceptance of the Absurd.
 


In the former Soviet Union one of the things that kept Communism firmly entrenched was not the powerful police state but the acceptance of the population that this is what life is like under Communism. People would make up excuses, rationalize why there were shortages and blame agitators. Even today a large segment of Russian society still longs for a return to Communism.

2; Selective Outrage or Compartmentalization.

It is easy for a Liberal to be outraged at the slightest thing yet are masters at separating like reasons to be outraged about because they run counter to the narrative. This is also a form of schizophrenia. The ability to hold two opposing thoughts in your head and have perfectly valid reasons (to a Liberal) to back them both up.

3; Conviction to the Impossible.

To a Liberal belief in a position requires no evidence to back up that position. If enough people are talking about it then it must be true especially if it is packaged into a trendy catchphrase. The War on Women, Reproductive Rights, Gender Equality, Global Warming are all perfect examples of how something with no substance can become a complex social issue. If asked no one can easily define many of the positions held by Liberals.

4; Denial of Reality or Cognitive Dissonance.

In the face of overwhelming facts and opposing opinions a Liberal is literally unable to change their thinking and is predisposed to deny the existence of any alternate fact or reality. They become hostile and will issue threats or revert to name calling. It is truly a chilling and frightening thing to experience.

5; Lack of Principle.

Simple things like love of country, American values, traditional family, God and Constitution are 'principled' institutions. Liberalism seeks to defy, question and replace anything that represents our heritage as Americans. Not that they are practising a principled right of Free Speech to question something but rather to destroy principles and replace them with a position based agenda. Liberals have 'positions' on issues and all those 'positions' falls within the accepted absurd narrative.

 

I will explain in this and subsequent blog posts how these things interrelate. How employing one of these five symptoms is backed by the other four and in many cases all five points employed. It is almost like a closed loop system impervious to outside intervention and impossible to break.

Lets look at an ongoing example that encompasses all of the above; The Russian Collusion Delusion. I am not sure if there has been any other time in American History when an entire nation was duped by such a lie. The only thing I can think of is Orsen Welles' radio broadcast of an alien invasion. Despite the obvious evidence that no aliens had landed people were in a panic. The same is true for this investigation. James Clapper speaking on Meet The Press openly stated that the Fusion Dossier was the impetous that triggered the investigation. Yet, the dossier has been proven false by the admission of the person (Christopher Steele) who wrote it. Here's where it gets screwy. Fusion GPS is now writing another false dossier to be used in the (possible) impeachment of President Trump. Regardless of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and more and more evidence coming out implicating the DNC to railroad Bernie Sanders virtually everyone who is against President Trump is convinced he colluded with the Russians. The arrests of Flynn, Manaforte and Papadopolous (on completely separate chatrges) just reinforces this conviction. There is no way to convince them otherwise. It is a closed loop system.

The Alabama Senatorial Election is another prime example. Despite there being no evidence against Judge Roy Moore, despite the fact that testimony from two of the women was proven false Moore lost that election. Oddly, he lost it by such a narrow margin that there should be an investigation of voter fraud. The DNC openly admitted to bussing in people from out of state. However, as I stated in a past blog post the fraudulently won seat usually stays in the hands of the fraudulent candidate.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AxVXM2Lts4



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcmKZ63T0ac




 

Both of these examples highlight every single one of the bullet points listed above. Democrats are firmly convinced this is the nature of politics and there is nothing any one can do about it. They accept the absurd. Democrats are outraged at the thought of our Presidential Election being rigged but have no problem bussing in people from out of state to rig an election even one from their own party (ie Bernie/Hillary). Selective Outrage. Regardless of the evidence there will be no investigation and election fraud will continue. Democrats are firmly convinced this is perfectly fine. Saul Alinsky said in his book Rules for Radicals "... by any means possible.." Conviction of position. Finally, Democrats are perfectly fine with the cognitive dissonance needed to get away with such tactics and are in complete denial of all evidence to the contrary because in order to mastermind and undertake such a scheme is to have no principles at all. The admission that these women were paid to slander Moore, then disapeared after the election is all the proof you need that this was orchestrated.. And the public swallowed it, hook, line and sinker..

The mental schizophrenia can be entertaining at times. A few years back a good friend of mine was engaged in a debate over the construction of a new train station in Somerville Mass. It was going to cost billions, was not needed but scores of Beacon Hill accolytes were all in favor of it because of the name recognition and the fact that they had a perfectly valid reason to hike up passenger rates. As if that ever stopped them before. Finally my friend turns to his counterpart and says, ".. Well, I am glad that at least you admit Global Warming is a farce'" Stunned, the person comes back with his affirmation that Global Warming is real and man is the sole cause of it and this is why we need more mass-transit. My friend cooly responded with, ".. Then how can you justify spending billions on a train station that will under water in less than fifty years?"

That one statement has had me thinking about something related to this issue of Global.. er.. Climate Change. Considering many cities are located along coastlines in primarily Democrat held states why haven't those Democrat controlled states begun preparing for this inevitable doomsday? Why are sea walls not under contruction? Have we begun to encourage citizens to move out to higher ground? No! They seem to all be Sanctuary Cities. Are they secretly allowing in thousands of illegals just so they can drown them all? There seems to be lots of money spent on 'infrastructure'. Why? If Climate Change is going to happen and sea levels are to rise flooding out major coastal cities why has Providence RI just completed a multi-billion dollar highway project? Why such a push to install wind turbines offshore to power these sunken cities? None of it makes any sense.

In addition I have always wondered how is it we are still destroying the environment? Did we not pass sweeping legislation in the 70's requiring emission controls on cars, factories and homes? The Clean Air and Water Act date back to the 60's along with the EPA. Haven't they cracked down on polluters? Haven't they made the regulations more restrictive each year? What are you telling me here?

That it was all a lie? That none of it worked anyway?

The truth is, yes and no. It was a lie and it has worked. But a Liberal always has the textbook answer to questions like these. We need to do more. Be careful when any politician from any party talks about 'doing more'. That usually means they will be picking your pocket soon and taking more of your Liberty away. Enter Carbon Taxes..



[I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.
It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.
Socialist Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf


 
It is easy for an entire Party to go so far as to convince an entire ideologically mesmerized mass of people to believe the Big Lie no matter what that lie entails. A person who supports Bernie Sanders will support a John Kerry, Feinstein, a Schummer, Howard Dean a Governor Brown. It matters not the position because they all carry the water for the party. Not so under Conservatism (specifically Conservatives). No two Conservative Republicans from any level of office can agree on any damned thing ever. I know, I have covered it on my show for years! If you want more proof just look at the Republican controlled House and Senate under President Trump. Not one of those idiots could agree on how to tie their shoes let alone Legislation! I see it every election season as my own Mass GOP perpetually shoots itself in the foot over which candidate to back and how can they best fuck themselves out of another chance of a Republican Representative..... Any Republican Representative!

But, I digress.

From the Global Warming lie to the Russian Collusion lie the ability to convince the masses of something that is simply not true is staggering. While we are at it, it was the famed Nazi propaganda minister Goebbels who not only made the claim about keeping a lie simple and repeating it often he also coined the axiom of accusing the opposition of the very thing YOU ARE DOING. Lets look at some examples"

Trumps calls out the Press as 'Fake News' due to their biased reporting. Everyone denys it, calls him unfit and potentially crazy. Turns out he is correct. The Press lied about the President, the polls lied about the President.

President Trump colluded with the Russians. Turns out it was a fake dossier purchased by the Clinton Campaign and that same Clinton Campaign hacked the DNC and Clinton herself oversaw the Uranium One deal.

The hockey stick Chart used to claim Global Warming is real was totally made up, debunked by scientists Lord Monktagne, Chief meteorologist and founder of The Weather Channel and the former founder of Greenpeace. The IPCC which is the UN Council on Climate Change is now under investigation for cooking the books and doctoring up climate models.

Blame legal gun owners, Conservatives and the NRA for all the mass shootings over the past few years. None of the shootings were carried out by lawful gun owners and/ or members of the NRA. All of the shootings were carried out by registered Democrats, Illegals or Islamic Terrorists.

Speaking of shootings; Police are racists and are killing black children. Black on black crime is in the 97% range (no one talks about that) and police killings of blacks are less than 1% with over 90% of that 1% a justified shooting.

 

This is just a sampling. All of these examples fall under all of the five points made earlier. They are all absurd yet people accept them. They are all carefully chosen outrages. Those who purport these notions as well as those who support these notions are convinced of their position. Supporters are in denial of any facts to the contrary because none of these examples are based on any sort of principle.

 

.... And That Is The Diatribe....





 

In the next segments I will talk in more detail about each of the five points and how they affect the rationale of a Liberal. We will start working backwards until we come back to number one. As I stated before it is a closed loop system. You will discover at the end how the entire thing is connected.

Decorated Gonzo Journalist Tossed Out of GOP Event Again!

https://bethforsenate.com/



 I wrote a piece awhile back about the Age of Information where no one seems to have a clue. This morning I was reminded of how true this actually is.

On Dec 14th I received an e-mail from a Jaclyn Corriveau inviting fellow Republicans to a Breakfast Event at The Beechwood Hotel in Worcester Mass on the 19th. The e-mail reads as follows:

Jaclyn Corriveau <jaclyn@bethforsenate.com> Dec 14 (5 days ago)

 

to bcc: me

 



Greetings fellow Republicans,

I am very happy to invite you to a Holiday Breakfast at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester the morning of December 19th to meet U.S. Senate Candidate Beth Lindstrom. Please see the attached invite for details.

I hope to see you all there!

To find out more about Beth, please visit: www.BethforSenate.com


Thank you,

Jaclyn Corriveau


All well and good, right? So, I responded promptly, of course, but with my experience of being decorated with the venerable badges of being tossed out of GOP events here in Massachusetts (this makes 5 now since 2014) I decided to ask a most important question:


Christopher gmail
.com> Dec 14 (5 days ago)

 

to Jaclyn

 


Is local media allowed to film and/or take photos?
I have extended an invitation to Beth to call into my radio show
Either way, I look forward to attending.

Christopher Maider



The response came back as;


Jaclyn Corriveau Dec 14 (5 days ago)

 

to me

 



Yes of course. Thanks !

Jaclyn, naturally, was inquisitive and asked specifically: What media would attend? I, again, wrote back;


Christopher Maider gmail
.com> Dec 17 (2 days ago)

 

to Jaclyn

 


Me.. You should be reaching out to local media, especially online media. Cover every event you hold. Blast it out across all Social Media.

The M&P Conservative Media Network has been interviewing Candidates since 2008... Blah-Blah....


I am not going to bore you with the remainder of the e-mail. I go into a whole dissertation about the show, history, links, etc.

I told her I would be there and no e-mail was sent telling me no Press allowed. Apparently, that is not the case. Press IS NOT allowed at Beth Lindstrom Events because here I am in my suit, Press Pass, camera gear ready to cover this event and film what great ideas Beth Lindstrom has for defeating Lie-Awatha Warren and I am stopped at the door. Despite showing the very polite woman there the e-mail threads she had no idea who I was, why I was there and no Press was allowed..

.... The Age of Information and No One Has a Clue....

I was told this was a private event. OK, then why the mass e-mail blast? Who is MindyGOP@gmail.com? Why is she not sending out the e-mails? Who is jaclyn@BethforSenate.com? Are any of these people communicating here? Apparently not because after a half dozen back and forths nothing was sent up the chain that The M&P Conservative Media Network will be arriving to cover the event and is more than willing to create a great expose' on the Beth Lindstrom Campaign. This is what I do!

Not a good way to start off the 2018 Campaign season BethforSenate.com. You need to have a Board meeting with your Communications Team ASAP!

Here is something ALL Mass GOP campaigns need to start understanding. The Internet IS going to determine your chances of winning or losing. The choice is yours. The LSM is NOT going to give you proper coverage, ample time on air or even a fair shake. This wrapped up system of keeping your campaign events private and secret does nothing for you as far as letting the public hear what you have to say. The stakes are too high to default yourselves to the same old 'politicking' of a time long ago unless you are in the race simply to lose it so status quo can remain. Has the election of President Trump and the growth of grassroots, internet based candidates hammering at the gates since 2008 taught you nothing?

If losing is your game plan then get out now. Save us all the time and the donor's money. I mean, talk about throwing good money after bad! Geoff Diehl sees me at an event and snaps a picture of us together. I have covered several of his appearances and he is the most gracious candidate I have met on this trail so far. Allen Rodney Waters has been a multi-time guest on my show and he is by far one of the most open and diverse challengers. Steven Hall brought his people to my humble radio studio and we talked for over an hour on air while pictures were taken. Jeffery Soussa Paquette and I are in communication for an in depth interview. John Hugo is being scheduled to come onto the show as I write this. Shiva was eager to do an impromptu vid/interview while at the Boston Free Speech Rally last month. All of it went viral.

... THIS is what your campaigns need to do.

SO, with another badge of honor I was tossed out of another Massachusetts GOP event. I have sent invites to BethforSenate  to be on my show. I will be preparing the second Candidate's Symposium for August 2018 and sending out invites. No one will be turned away, not the Press, not the candidates, not the public. It is important that communication be succinct and that voters be given every opportunity to hear every candidate at every event regardless of position or opposition.

Strap in folks 2018 is going to be one Hell of a ride!

.... And That Is The Diatribe....
