So you think Musk is for free speech eh?

I posted the following about his new CEO in response to the NY Post (they asked "who is this chick?"):

@nypost A: A WEF lackey and jab-happy mastermind who in fact conned 2/3rds of this nation, on purpose, into taking said jabs under false pretense. She deserve the gallows but then again Musk has billions of reasons to not care about the PEOPLE in this country and, indeed, worldwide.

This drew me an INSTANT 12 hour suspension for "harassment."

It is, according to Twitter, harassment and "abusive behavior" to factually state that she is indeed a WEF lackey (she JUST spoke there) and that she in fact while at NBC Universal, as her last major project, did indeed work to advertise and promote the jabs -- which we now know were in fact based on the lie that you would not get Covid if you took them.

Let's be clear folks: It is considered "abusive" by Twitter to state two truths about a public figure and call for them to be punished as a direct consequence of the harms that occurred to others due to their own personal and willful actions which they took for the purpose of profit, whether professional, monetary, political or otherwise.

Specifically tens if not hundreds of thousands of people are dead here in America as a result of those actions -- both from Covid (they got it because you were told you were "safe" around them and could not give it to them yet you were not, and that was a deliberate falsehood on the promoter's partand due to the direct harms of said shots.  We can debate the magnitude of those harms but that they happened is not in question.  That is a matter of scientific fact and that the claims were false and at the origin of the jab program were made without scientific evidence is also a matter of scientific fact.

So the new rule is that I cannot call out "the protected" for their own personal actions and argue they deserve the death penalty for the death their deception caused?

That is now deemed "abusive."

Oh, and Musk?  He's lying in this tweet.

 

If he wasn't I wouldn't have been given 12 hours in Twitmo for the above instantly, literally fast enough that before I could go look for it I got hammered.  I have the receipts on that too as they sent it to my email.  It was my expectation of exactly this remained true even though Musk claimed Twitter was now for "free speech" that led me to refuse (repeatedly, and publicly) to pay the $8 monthly fee for a blue check; I was very confident Musk was lying and I was buying..... nothing and worse -- would be supporting a lie with my money.

SO MUCH FOR FREE SPEECH -- I WAS RIGHT AND MUSK WAS AND IS LYING.

AND SO MUCH FOR THE RULE OF LAW.

WE NOW LIVE IN COMMUNIST CHINA, COMRADE.  YOU SHALL NOT CRITICIZE "THE PARTY" NOR STATE THEY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL ACTS.

LESE MAJESTE IS NOW THE LAY OF THE LAND FOLKS -- RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA.

And no, I can't "tweet" this.  You can, if you want to.

To Musk: You're a lying sack of shit and always have been.

To Tucker Carlson: If you so much as show your face on Twitter you're a lying sack of shit too.

Ah, the fish are biting today.... but who are they biting?  The man in the back of the boat?  Maybe...... more from Ishmael..... -- Ed

 

Today’s guest Ticker is another postmortem on the Coof Wars.  Technically, since people are still dying suddenly, we’re in the bonus round.  Some decisions echo through decades, lockdowns and Operation Warp speed are two of them.

Studying the past is a tool to predict how the next battle will be fought.  I make no predictions on what it will be.  It could be another riot season that turns into urban warfare, RussiaRussiaRussia, or even aliens.  At this point, I almost welcome our outer space overlords.

Clown world attempts to supplant reality by first changing people’s thoughts.  Our minds are potent weapons so they must be neutralized. One tactic is disinformation.

As I went down more and more rabbit holes gathering information for the Guard Your Mind series, one thing became very clear: the way they shoveled bullshit at us is nothing new. Lies have been with us since the beginning of time, they are just getting more sophisticated and coordinated parallel to technology. 

H. Michael Sweeney wrote the seven traits of disinformation practitioners in 1997, and updated it in 2000.  They describe the characteristics of an attack on truth and provide a good analysis framework.  When these characteristics appear centered around an event, we may have found the next battlefront.

The sooner we catch on, the sooner we mount a counterattack and win.  Or at least provide a suitable speedbump to protect our children and grandchildren.  Knowledge is power.

Sweeney wrote his guidelines after observing behavior on Internet newsgroups.  Today, the equivalent is the comments section or Reddit.  However, I am going to expand his use by applying seven out of eight traits to the gaslighting campaign we’ve endured for three years, two months, and counting.

During the Coof Wars, sometimes we observed individual people act:  Fraudchi, Walensky, a string of press secretaries.  The characteristics also apply to organizations like the CDC, WHO, mainstream media, and social media.

Factual information was actively attacked and suppressed.  Things that later proved to be true were viciously attacked initially. The list of targets was remarkably consistent across the world, platforms, and the news.  The pure tin was mostly left alone.  We saw this repeated pattern as they cherry picked faulty studies and ignored those that supported the truth.

This is an example of selectivity.

Sweeney wrote..

Selectivity. They tend to pick and choose opponents carefully…focusing heavier attacks on key opponents who are known to directly address issues…

Another characteristic is avoidance.  It’s worth noting throughout the gaslighting we’ve endured, the enemy’s arguments have almost no actual substance beyond discrediting studies that don’t fit the official narrative.  Their arguments all boil down to, “We’re right because trust Teh Science and you’re wrong.'' 

Sweeney wrote..

Avoidance. They never actually discuss issues head-on or provide constructive input, generally avoiding citation of references or credentials. Rather, they merely imply this, that, and the other…

I do take exception to someone providing credentials as support for their position.  After the past three years, it takes more than a medical degree to convince me you know anything about human health.

A third common characteristic is the enemy statements were anti-conspiratorial.

Sweeney wrote..

Anti-conspiratorial. They almost always have disdain for 'conspiracy theorists'...

I prefer the term “coming attractions.”

Today’s example is a paper published on the National Institutes of Health website.  Remember them?  They likely funded the original research that gave us two years of lockdowns, vacation in place, and an increased death rate. Characteristics of Misinformation Spreading on Social Media During the COVID-19 Outbreak in China: A Descriptive Analysis was published May 10, 2021.

The people who wrote it are so arrogant they didn’t care they provided both an explanation of what they did, and a roadmap for future propaganda attacks.

Their plan is best summed up with this little gem from the end (emphasis added):

Chen, et al wrote..
If credible experts were to use these social media platforms, the effective delivery of high-quality information and the correction of misinformation before and during health-related crises could be achieved, as well as a further reduction in the amount of misinformation circulating on social media.
  

They mention pushing information out in advance of a crisis in a throwaway comment. Maybe some of those theories of a plandemic weren't so crazy.

Speaking of plans (emphasis added)…

Chen, et al wrote..
 

"Thus, one of the ways to eliminate hotbeds of misinformation is to offer continuously targeted and accurate information in advance based on predictions of the prospective COVID-19 outbreak situation.

 

So much for “trusting the science.”  Since when is science settled in advance and reported to the public as fact instead of speculation?  Oh wait, we live in clown world.   

It’s just as well the definition of science changed, we are too stupid to think for ourselves.

Chen, et al wrote..
 

In the context of the universal audience, vague and abstract messages are a prerequisite…providing specific instructions predicated on the elite’s perspective of what all rational people would accept as fact is not effective. A shift to the approach enabling each particular audience to participate in the process of establishing interacting arguments is more productive...

Naturally the paper's recommendations include censorship online and manipulation.

Chen, et alI wrote..
If traditional beliefs are difficult to “overturn”, a better strategy is to “permeate.” First, health experts can use a gradual method to change a specific group’s health behaviors…Changing a specific group’s health behavior first will guide the public to understand a scientific health perception, which can be regarded as a premise for changing everyone’s health behavior…strictly penalize social media when they create or disseminate misinformation maliciously.

What were some targeted statements this paper called fiction that later evidence supported?

    *The unknown pneumonia in Wuhan is the SARS virus.

    *Lopinavir/ritonavir can effectively remedy COVID-19. (Note: Paxilovid contains ritonavir.  According to the official narrative, it is a safeandeffective treatment.  Call this one a clown world true.)

    *COVID-19 is an evolution of the SARS virus.

    *The coronavirus is synthetic.

    *The coronavirus originated from the United States. (Note: There’s evidence Duke University was involved, some support this one is true.)

The recommended punishment for repeating any of the statements on social media was suppression and banhammer. Even though this was a Chinese paper, America followed the same playbook. Remember when China was a terrible place for human rights violations, not a country to emulate? 

For a more complete list of wrongthink, check out Facebook’s Covid 19 policy

As soon as social media is invoked, we should look for another Sweeney trait.

Sweeney wrote..
Teamwork. They tend to operate in self-congratulatory and complementary packs or teams…there will likely be an ongoing pattern of frequent exchanges of this sort where professionals are involved…

Social media platforms all targeted the same statements in the same way.  The lamestream media hopped right in line, too.  To emphasize, many of these “dangerous misinformation” later proved accurate.

Remember the first fear campaign? Maaaaasssssssssskkkks.

Originally they didn’t help at all, because the US had none stockpiled. Then they were the only hope for human survival, but we still had none. Therefore, all peasants had to risk their lives by breathing freely in order to save nurses dancing in empty hospital wings.  Finally they expected us to wear tard rags everywhere.

This is an example of inconsistency.

Sweeney wrote..
Inconsistent. There is also a tendency to make mistakes which betray their true self/motives. This may stem from not really knowing their topic, or it may be somewhat 'freudian'...

The science didn’t change.  Neil Orr studied masks in the 1980s.  They don’t do anything except make you look like a moron.

The inconsistent way the message on masks was presented was part of the gas lighting campaign.  Terrify everyone with imminent death, create the illusion of scarcity, require a rare item for safety, and you produce a gullible public who can’t virtue signal fast enough.  The same scarcity tactic was used with clot shots.

Remember this the next time you’re told that if you don’t Do Something, you're going to die.  This applies to Russia and raising the debt ceiling.

Looking at cold and flu season rationally, there is no reason to be terrified.  It happens every year.  Yet in early 2020, coincidentally the CDC and WHO started freaking out. Hmmm.

Sweeney wrote..
Coincidental. They tend to surface suddenly and somewhat coincidentally with a new controversial topic with no clear prior record of participation in general discussions in the particular public arena involved.

When an ordinary event (flu season) is suddenly worthy of a press conference, social media thought policing, and a fear campaign, look for the why instead of what they say. If the why makes no sense in context of what they are saying, you hear disinformation.

Sweeney’s final trait is almost a gimme in political arenas.  A lot of these people are pure evil, possibly psychopathic.  How many times did you notice how fake one of the talking heads sounded?  Or that beneath the façade of normalcy they were getting off on a power trip?

Sweeney wrote..
Artificial Emotions. An odd kind of 'artificial' emotionalism and an unusually thick skin -- an ability to persevere and persist even in the face of overwhelming criticism and unacceptance…

Noting these disinformationalist features is another tool for guarding your mind.  It is your most valuable asset, stay safe out there folks!  We need mental sharpness for the next battle, which is coming sooner than any of us want.

Read this one folks:

"He’s in this jail probably having a hot breakfast when we’re out here talking about it," Kean added. 

Kean also would not confirm whether Oropesa's wife is among those arrested. Oropesa's bond will be officially set at the jail by a judge Wednesday morning, Kean said. 

His wife eh?

Is she an American citizen?  If she is, and CNN is reporting they are long-term together and have a child, then (1) she was almost-certainly involved in his felony entry into the United States and is thus culpable for that crime and, (2) it appears, she may be an accessory after the fact to the murders as well.

There is a regularized and legal way to enter the United States for purpose of residency -- whether temporarily or otherwise.  Anyone entering via any other means is a criminal under long-standing US law.  The first such offense is a misdemeanor but subsequent re-entries after deportation are a felony.

I'm tired of known felons committing serious offenses who are able to commit those offenses because the government refuses to prosecute and remove said felons from our nation and we, the people, refuse to demand that they either do so or we will do so and if anyone tries to stop us we will remove them from society as equally guilty.

I believe very strongly in Due Process and Equal Protection.  However, equal protection includes, because it must include, protection from thugs of all sorts including thugs within government agencies who deem citizens to be open-season style targets for thugs of all other sorts.  Such persons are equally guilty as those committing the original felony in that they both enable and in fact promote the behaviors that directly lead to the crimes.  This is no different than you driving someone to a bank for the purpose of robbing it; you get the same sentence they do, and properly so -- up to and including murder if they shoot and kill someone.

In this case we have a felon who managed to acquire and display, for several months or years, firearms despite being a felon.  He did not hide said firearms.  It is illegal for a felon, as well as someone who is in the United States as a foreign national but not a lawful permanent resident, to own or possess firearms except in a handful of very limited circumstances (e.g. someone who comes here lawfully and is hunting.)

This individual made no secret of his possession of said weapons; he was known to discharge them on a regular basis on his property and the police had been called in the past over this, as he was doing so unsafely.  As a consequence any reasonable inquiry, which they had every right to make, would have disclosed he was a previously-deported person and thus was a felon in possession of fireeams which is an immediately-arrestable offense.

Had any of the federal, state or local law enforcement agencies, including "border patrol", done their job these murders would not have happened and had his wife been arrested as an accessory to his felony entry into the United States he would have had no reason to try to come back in again because she'd be in prison.  If she was the person who bought the guns she wouldn't have been able to do so as a person with a felony record -- at least not through otherwise-legal means.

The same sort of thing happened with "A Girl in Iowa."  Nobody cared about the illegal alien who came into the United States and was illegally working here in the United States on a farm.  Said illegal murdered a young woman who was out for a jog with no provocation or other particularized reason for him to kill her.

I do not care whether the "rate" of such persons committing these serious offenses are higher or lower on a per-capita basis than those of black people, legal Hispanic residents or whites.  That is irrelevant; what is relevant and fact is that every single one of those offenses would not have happened if said persons were not here in the United States, and every single person who profited from or assisted them in coming or remaining here whether directly or indirectly is personally responsible for every single one of these murders, rapes, assaults and more.

This stops only when the people of this nation make clear that either the law is enforced equally and without favor against all these individuals -- right now -- or we the people will deem every single act of malfeasance and misfeasance to be an act in deliberate furtherance of these felonies and we will act as judge, jury and sentencing body since these employees of the government will not do their damn jobs despite knowing full well what they are and taking an oath to do so.

It is time for those of us who are citizens and are tired of this crap to make very clear to all officials of any stripe that they have two and only two choices: Enforce the law, if necessary with armed force at the border or we will, and if they continue to refuse we will hold them personally accountable as equally guilty for each and every such offense on a personal basis and enforce those penalties ourselves.  We will do so because they are equally guilty, and their choice is to either either enforce the law they took an oath to enforce or we will see to it that they will pay the identical penalty as those who commit the crimes just as you or I would if we drove said bank robber to and from the bank.

ENOUGH.

Oh this is rich.

A Denver city council representative seeking re-election proposed taxing "White-led businesses" and redistributing the wealth to minorities as reparations for the harm of capitalism.

Go ahead and do it.

I'll tell you what will happen: There won't be any white-led businesses in Denver; they will all move or dissolve.

Then we will get to the bottom line: Like it or not those who want to play "gimme" have to have someone willing to give it.  If they all move out or shut down you're fuckedEven if only some modest percentage of them do your "projected" revenue doesn't materialize.  Now the promise you made to pay can't be met without ratcheting up the tax amount which in turn drives the rest of the producers out.

This cycle rapidly destroys the entire city's tax base and jobs.  Whether you like it or not those who want to play "gimme" are disproportionately black and non-native Hispanic.

How do I know this?  Because they're the ones demanding the "reparations"!

Contemplate this: In the northern half of the US in the 1860s ten percent of the Union soldiers were underage and went anyway.  These men were not conscripts; they VOLUNTEERED to fight and put their life on the line ON BEHALF OF BLACK PEOPLE.  Roughly 750,000 MEN died fighting that war and over 2 million northerners were mobilized to fight .vs. less than half that number of southerners.  Forty percent, roughly, of those killed in action were never identified -- they just never came home.  2 out of 3 deaths were from disease, not gunshots, cannon, slash/stab wounds and similar.

Over 300,000 Union Solders were identified and re-interred by 1871, so cut the often-run bullshit about how "it all fell on those who were slavers."  That's a damnable lie and blood libel on top of it so if you run that shit on me you can fuck right off.

Every one of those dead people died to free slaves and end slavery in the United States.  Every one of their families did not have their son or father come home; they were dead.  Every one of the black people descended from slaves today in America and all the "racism" you scream about owes the descendants of those dead Union soldiers, by the black people's claims, more than can ever be owed the other way for very obvious reasons -- they died and were not "merely" allegedly discriminated against by "systemic racism."

Without those people -- and thus by your argument the descendants of their families -- the blacks in this nation either (1) would not exist at all or (2) would still be slaves.  You thus owe them your life -- literally.

The facts are much more-complex than you care to admit because if you do admit it then you must also admit that there is no logical, legal, ethical or moral basis for assessing anyone to cover the sins of those several generations removed and that as soon as you start that crap someone else can render the same claim against you on those same terms simply by changing the dates under consideration.

You want to start this shit Denver?  Go right ahead.  Just like San Francisco wants to; it appears that the needles all over the place, the inability to park your car for 10 minutes without all the windows being smashed and thousands of homeless people crapping on the sidewalk in between shooting themselves full of heroin or god-knows-what-else hasn't served as enough of a lesson as to what happens when you demand those who produce hand over money to those who scream "racissssss!" or simply "gimmedat-because-you-have-more-than-I".

I'm good with this, by the way -- you can stew in your own shit when the water and sewer system doesn't work anymore, exactly as happened in Jackson MS when all the people willing to actually work and maintain said system leave and what's left are people who either can't do the job or steal the money via grift and fraud that they collected in tax revenues to keep the water and sewer systems functioning.

Never mind the inbound tidal wave of literal shit you're going to have on your sidewalks when city revenue and thus services collapse.

Oh, this is just an American construct eh?  How's it going in South Africa?  Yes, apartheid was a crap system.  However the water and electrical systems worked and crops were produced, all three of which are now, under black majority government rule on the verge of collapse.  If the black majority population is even half as capable as white people then explain this to me.  Perhaps stealing a white man's land and then demanding he help you grow crops on it doesn't work out so well and neither does expecting an electrical grid to function when you get rid of all the people who actually care to show up, maintain and expand it, replacing them with people who either can't or won't do the required work.

Essentially all of the rampant "Gimmedat" crap started with the so-called "Great Society" programs and as soon as black people figured out they could scream "raaaaaccccciiiiisssssss!" they also realized they could do that instead of working.  The problem of course is that nobody in their right mind will keep producing when you scream in their face that they're a racist and demand they give you money simply because of skin color.

I'll put the productivity of the white people you wish to steal from up against your black residents.  I cite as evidence all the majority-black areas of our cities over the last 30+ years since "gimmedat" became so damned common.  Said people, on balance, have more gang-bangers, car thieves, petty thieves, muggers, rapists, murderers, burned-out and dilapidated homes and similar on a per-capita basis than those not.  Huge parts of cities like Detroit and St. Louis look like a war zone straight out of Bosnia and you're actually safer walking in said war zone than those parts of said "cities."  Black-on-white violent assaults, including murder, occur at a rate much higher than the other way around despite black people being approximately 14% of the population.

This is a culture problem and bullshit just like what you're spewing is what has directly caused it.  Tell me how "white people" are responsible for all the black rappers who get chart topping songs out there featuring "fucking hoes" and other rappers "singing" about similar ape-style behavior and you might get a discussion from me on that point too.  Nobody makes music that doesn't sell so save me your bullshit about what the people in your demographic want to listen to and have drilled into their heads.  Let's talk specifically about how your culture's depiction of women produces solid families, children and a responsible, productive next generation when the predominant "singing" from said culture considers a woman's reproductive organs to be a commodity consumed as an exploitable, often violently-so resource with its sole purpose abuse by thuggish men rather than an essential element best utilized by loving, monogamous couples with respect for each other and in awe of the most-powerful capacity -- literal creation -- acting in harmony to produce the next productive generation.  If your culture gave a wet crap about children and families anyone doing "rap" of that sort would be immediately run out of town and the ground they stood on salted.  That hasn't happened and thus it is clear you and others in your cultural demographic believe in and support that view of women, children and families.  The result -- such as entire districts in Chicago where not one pupil is competent in math and reading is what happens when two or three generations of this occur without being stopped and thus the people of said culture who don't give a crap and listen to such trash wind up a couple of decades later as teachers who can't themselves make change for a $20 or form a single proper English sentence.  Despite this they are entitled to middle-class or better salaries and benefits while handing diplomas to kids who can't read, write or make change for a $20 simply because their skin color is "correct."  The only "job" said graduates are qualified for is carjacking. 

You can argue individual cases all you'd like but I will argue statistically what is going to happen to your shitty when you do this because said statistics are clear, convincing and have played out multiple times already all over America in the last 30+ years or so in such fine instances as Detroit, St. Louis and elsewhere.  Chicago was turned into a feral sewer by this bullshit and I lived in and around there for 13 years.  I saw it coming in the late 90s and got the hell out because the precise same crap happened in Detroit, all based on the same "gimmedat-or-you're-a-racist!" trope and it drove out statistically all the producers who said "screw you; we're done with being insulted because we actually produce as a consequence of only employing people who actually show up and do their damn job."

It is not that there aren't lots of industrious and hard-working people who happen to have black skin.  There are.  I've employed more than a few of them over my years in business.  Skin color was immaterial to my willingness to employ said people and had zero to do with their job placement and salary in my company.  Their attitude and industriousness had everything to do with it; in fact, that's all that mattered.  A businessperson is out of his mind to do otherwise but he is also out of his mind to employ a single person who thinks they're entitled to anything because of their skin color or what happened 150 years ago.

But it is a fact that on a percentage basis producing people are under-represented among the black population specifically because you inculcate into black people that they can demand something because others are "racissss" and get it.  If you try to force white people to pay blacks simply because of the color of their skin when those who you are trying to extract the money from did not cause any of the injuries being complained about the correct, logical and only answer any white person should give you in response is "FUCK YOU" and they should then immediately remove themselves from your capacity to financially reach their assets.

THEY WILL DO THAT BECAUSE IT IS THE REASONABLE AND PEACEFUL RESPONSE RATHER THAN TAKE THE CHIMP ACTION YOU SEE CHRONICLED AT HEYJACKASS WITH REGARD TO CHICAGO DAILY -- THAT IS, SHOOT YOU -- AND BY TAKING THE PEACEFUL AND LAWFUL ACTION THEY ALSO DISPLAY THIS CULTURE TRAIT CALLED IMPULSE CONTROL, WHICH INCIDENTALLY  YOUR 30+ YEARS OF "GIMMEDAT" SCREAMING HAS SUPPRESSED TO EXTINCTION IN A SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGE OF THE BLACK POPULATION.

WHEN they take said peaceful and lawful alternative not only will your scheme collapse in a tsunami of red ink your entire city will collapse around you on a fiscal and output basis.

And when THAT occurs YOU DESERVE IT BECAUSE YOU ARE A RACIST PIG and so does EVERY OTHER CITIZEN who is stupid enough to remain in Denver.

Go ahead and kill your city just like Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis -- and South Africa for that matter -- have.

Its simple folks, when you get down to it.

If you support "equal access for anyone who identifies as {whatever}" then what you are supporting and demanding is men having access to a woman's locker room.

That's what it comes down to, when you boil it all down.  Leave aside the rest of the BS about bathrooms generally; women do not want to see a penis in their bathroom but generally-speaking in the woman's restroom you have stalls and usually doors -- which is the argument always raised "on the other side" by the so-called "trans-activists."  Fine.

In a locker room you inherently have bare-skinned bodies.  Like it or not, that's how it is.  Both women and men change their clothes and take showers in those places.  You cannot take a shower with your clothes on and whatever clothing, including that which is considered "underwear", you are wearing while engaged in said athletic activity gets quite disgusting and you probably want to remove it when you're done.

If you are a mother or father then you, if you permit this to occur, are arguing for your daughter being forced to take a shower in the same room as a person, however you choose to "identify" them, with a penis hanging down between their legs.

Said person is also going to be biologically larger, stronger and intimidating as a result of that to most if not all of the women in there and again, I remind you, both they and her are going to be naked in there as an inherent fact of the basic function of said facility.

That's the beginning and end of the debate.

If you're a parent of a girl and support this crap whether explicitly or by your silence then I have to question whether you give a wet crap about your daughter -- her modesty, safety and the ability to do ordinary athletic things that women want to participate in and excel in while being able to go take a shower, get the sweat off and then change back into street clothes without some person with a DICK being present in said place at the same time.

It really is that simple and if you have any respect for women at all then you must put a stop to this -- right here, right now, permanently.
