Repeal and Replace Congress 2018

In the 2018 mid-term elections, all 435 U.S. House members are up for reelection and in the U.S. Senate, 25 democrats and 9 republicans are running for reelection. Not one of them has kept their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, “so help me God.”

The 2016 election was a landmark shift away from liberal concepts to American concepts, as demonstrated by voters crossing party lines to support long-shot outsider Donald J. Trump for President with a common concern in mind.

The TOP 4 2016 election issues with voters from both parties

  1. Terrorism and National Security – 87% across party lines
  2. The economy – 87% across party lines
  3. Employment, Jobs – 84% across party lines
  4. Health Care – 79% across party lines, although not in agreement on the solution

In the end, voters across party lines shared the same four primary concerns in 2016 by wide margins and they trusted Donald J. Trump more than Hillary Clinton to deal with these four primary issues.

On other matters of interest, the political divisions become more visible.

Other TOP issues for Republican Voters 2016

  1. National Debt and ongoing deficit spending
  2. Foreign Threats
  3. Ineffective Government
  4. Illegal Immigration
  5. Rising taxation without representation

Other TOP issues for Democrat Voters 2016

  1. Free Government funded education K through College
  2. Government redistribution of private wealth

Issues of less interest to voters from either party

  1. Gun Laws
  2. Wall Street and Bank Regulations
  3. Social issues, gay marriage, abortion, transgender
  4. Climate Change

(All data taken from broad-based Gallup polls HERE)

The result of the 2016 election cycle was Republican Party control of the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate. The demise of democrat political power that had cost the party over 1000 political seats between 2008-2016, continued in 2016, leaving democrats essentially completely powerless under normal circumstances.

But the circumstances present as the new administration took power in January 2017 were anything but normal. The global “never-Trump” operation was about to hit overdrive. Establishment career politicians on both sides of the aisle were sent a loud and clear message… Represent OUR will or we will repeal and replace YOU! They had to double down and fast…

The Next Seven Months

Immediately following the 2016 upset of “sure thing” Hillary Clinton, the “never-Trump” operation launched into overdrive. Every possible tool and tactic was on the table. The only rule of engagement was – destroy Trump by any means necessary.

Trump had stepped between Making America Great Again and the Global Governance Agenda launched by Bill and Hillary Clinton in the early 90s, labeled Global Governance 2030, later labeled UN Agenda 21 by the United Nations.

Trump stepped into much worse than any “swamp.” He stepped squarely between the global power structure hell-bent on reducing the United States to a 3rd world level partner in a global commune -and- American voters from all party affiliations who want no part of it.

The “never-Trump” operation involves foreign governments, the United Nations, the Democratic Party, many members of the Republican Party in congress and state governments, 97% of all Federal Employees, the “fake news” media, Hollywood, DOJ Officials, the FBI, CIA, NSA, the DNI, George Soros and his more than 200 NGOs, the Communist Party USA, Socialist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America, Islamists, illegal alien invaders, ANTIFA and BLM, giant international corporations, the education system and K-College kids…. On and on and on….

It’s not just a “swamp.” Trump stepped into the middle of a velvet global war to destroy America and took a stand with the dying breed of Americans who still believe our foundations can make America great again. Trump and his voters are at war… and the sooner they realize it, the better.

Beyond Executive Orders, some of which are also blocked by judicial tyranny, the 2016 election agenda is entirely blocked by congress. Congressional republicans even took measures to prevent any recess appointments by Trump. The agenda is being blocked by republicans in charge, working with democrats to remove Trump from the Oval Office and keep America on track to global governance.

Repeal and Replace Congress 2018

The national agenda of more than 63 million Trump voters has been stalled for the first seven months of the Trump Administration. Trump and his original team have been under constant daily assault by the “never-Trump” operation since the day Trump announced his bid for the White House.

But it isn’t just democrat global Marxists working to subvert and undermine Trump and his supporters. Republicans like Jeff Flake (AZ) and Bob Corker (TN) have been working with known enemies like John McCain (AZ) and Lindsey Graham (SC) to force the demise of the Trump presidency in short order. As a result, democrats are still running Washington DC despite republican majorities. Should politicians who fail to keep their oath even be allowed to run for reelection?

If the people who supported Trump in 2016 remain committed to their pro-American agenda, they will have to repeal and replace congress in 2018. Trump cannot MAGA alone and under constant assault.

Republican members running for reelection must be replaced in the primaries by challengers who will keep their oaths. Democrats must be defeated in the general election by viable conservative challengers. The same way 63 million voters TRUMPED the 2016 elections, they will have to TRUMP congress in 2018.

Assuming Trump can successfully defend against those at war with him long enough to see the mid-term elections, the people of this country must eliminate as many career turncoats as possible in 2018, or their agenda will remain beyond their grasp.

The people must start right now, unite for the fight, organize in coordinated strategic plans district by district, state by state with senators, and they must not fail. Voters hold the future in their hands. Evil will prevail if good people do nothing!

VIDEO & PHOTOS: ‘Trump/Pence Out Of The White House’ versus ‘Support Our President’ rallies

Sunday, August 13, 2017 – 2 pm (thru Aug 15) Columbus Circle to Trump Tower. (they also gathered in Union Square and Brooklyn) The usual anti-fascist FASCIST THUGS gathered at the entrance to Central Park. Same people. Same themes. “This Nightmare must End: the Trump Pence Regime Must Go”  However, after Charlottesville, things morphed. New memes and themes were added, such as “Take to the Streets, Condemn the Racist, Murdering Nazi Thugs.” BUT we still heard “In the name of Humanity, We Refuse a FASCIST America.” (Our host was RefuseFascism.org.)

Since there was no violence-prone antifa on site, the only thugs were the usual anti-fascist FASCISTS of Refuse Fascism. Some were assigned to certain photographers – who have no rights in a public square (that would be MOI).

I was shoved, blocked and followed throughout the whole hour they were at Columbus Circle, with no police interested UNTIL I body-blocked an anti-fascist Fascist blonde interloper who photo-bombed the Trump counter-protest of three. NOW the police got involved.

The blonde set out to obscure the offending signs since OPPOSITION of THOUGHT is NOT ALLOWED.  SO I joined the fray and blocked her.

BUT she WHINED to the police who said “LEAVE HER ALONE.” SHE had a right to be there (aka harass us). Her cohorts grew to three committed sign-blockers before fading away.

The Support President Trump counter-protest grew. They picked up a Brit, a Muslim woman and other passersby along with a Russian woman and …two 20-something young women … who also supported the President.

In fact, no harm done by the hostile anti-fascist facisti. The Trumpers held their ground.

The Muslim woman was very outspoken; her enthusiasm much appreciated.

There was one man of color who embarrassed his children with an expletive-laced  tirade on skin color, racism and WHITE HATE aimed at the Trump counter-protesters. “You Got to be Taught…. ”

What a putz!

After about an hour, the anti-fascist Fascists marched to Trump Tower, leaving behind a couple of ringers who motor-mouthed anyone who tried to debate reasonably. They suck the life out of any exchange of ideas with long-winded talking points; never NEVER allowing a RESPONSE. Deep Thinking Protestors – now that’s the ticket to their success:

Next day the anti-fascist Fascists took to the streets outside Trump Tower to condemn (again) those racist fascist murderers in the White House. DAY 2 , August 14th, posted next.

Elizabeth Warren Urges Democrats to Champion Gun Control, Shut Down Debate

Just as many in the Democratic Party are seeking to moderate their message in order to once again compete as a national political party, some high-profile Democrats are urging the party to lurch further left with an even firmer embrace of gun control.

On June 13, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) addressed those gathered at the “progressive” Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta, Ga. In her usual frenzied style, Warren used the forum to attack those Democrats who would moderate the party’s message, including those who would temper the party’s stance on guns.

Going further than most anti-gun activists and politicians, her command for Democrats to champion gun control included a call to shut down discussion on the topic. In doing so, Warren seemed to liken the issue of gun control to that of global warming, which many activists have long-attempted to put beyond the scope of legitimate debate.

During her wide-ranging diatribe, Warren stated,

It’s time for us to say: Democrats are on the side of science.

We’re done arguing about whether climate change is real – and we’re going to fight it with everything we have.

We’re done arguing about whether trickle-down economics works – and we’re going to fight to build this economy so it works for working families.

We’re done arguing about gun safety – and we’re going to fight for the common-sense reforms the overwhelming majority of Americans want.

First, there is nothing remotely close to a scientific consensus on the efficacy of gun control advocates’ most favored proposals. A 2013 memo from the Department of Justice’s National Institute for Justice surveyed the research on several gun control measures. In relation to a restriction on the private transfer of firearms, the NIJ determined that such a measure would be ineffective unless coupled with an onerous registration regime. Addressing restrictions on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, NIJ determined, “Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence.” So-called “smart guns” were found “Unlikely to affect gun crime.”

Moreover, earlier reviews of gun research and controls by the National Academies have made clear that the senator’s absolutist statement is unwarranted.

Second, while gun control proponents are quick to point to polls showing public support for restrictions on the private transfer of firearms as a justification for trampling gun rights, actual experience paints a different picture. In 2016, anti-gun activists’ most-touted gun control measure was on the ballot in two very different “blue” states, Maine and Nevada. When given the opportunity to vote on this legislation, Mainers rejected further gun control, while Nevadans narrowly passed a misleading and unenforceable background check initiative by less than a 1 percent margin. Not exactly evidence of an “overwhelming majority.”

If there is any positive aspect to Warren’s recent anti-gun statement, it is that the senator was so forthright in her attack on our Second Amendment rights. For many years, gun control advocates and anti-gun politicians have implored lawmakers and the nation to have a much-needed “conversation” on gun control. Of course, the country has been embroiled in a nearly ceaseless national debate on the topic since the 1960s.

This tactic is always an anti-gun ruse. Rather than an earnest debate on the merits of a given proposal, those using this language are exclusively concerned with achieving their preferred policy outcomes. While Warren is incorrect that the argument over gun control has been decisively determined in her favor, at least she has dropped the ridiculous pretext of wanting a serious debate.

Warren’s hardline anti-gun position might play well in Massachusetts, a state where the fanatical attorney general has been permitted to willfully misinterpret state law to attack law-abiding gun owners and local law enforcement have discretion over who may possess even a single-shot shotgun. Given Hillary Clinton’s fervent support for the most radical gun control measures and her subsequent ascent to the Democratic presidential nomination, it’s obvious that militant anti-gun messaging is also attractive to some of the more statist elements of the Democratic Party. However, there is strong evidence that if the Democrats are interested in competing nationally, a more moderate stance on Second Amendment rights is the way forward.

Democratic Party leaders, and Democratic candidates running in competitive elections, will have to decide whether to follow the lead of someone likely bolstering her left-wing credentials to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, or look to history and recognize the wisdom in former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Rahm Emanuel’s determination that Democratic candidates should “reflect” their constituents.

VIDEO: Dinesh D’Souza on ‘The Big Lie About Charlottesville’

Dinesh D’Souza has a new book out, The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left, which I’ll be reviewing later. And considering the violence in Charlottesville, the timing was perfect for him to come on the Glazov Gang, the show hosted by our very own Jamie, to discuss the Big Lie About Charlottesville and how his thesis applies to the latest outbreak of outrage.

Jamie has an extended segment taking a deep dive into The Big Lie and discussing how the left’s lies still drive conflict in this country today.

The Left and Anti-Americanism

We are witnessing two extremes in America. Both are fascist.

We are witnessing two extremes in America. Both are fascist.

One is called Alt-Right and the other the Alt Left. Neither is conservative or liberal they both represent the growth of Fascism, Socialism and Communism in America. Unfortunately the liberal media and to a great extent the Democrat Party and Democrats have aligned themselves with the so called Alt-Left.

The removal of statues, pictures or other historical items is comparable to the ‘book burning’ in Nazi Germany during that 1930’s. Hitler was intent on erasing German and Western history and culture. In America today we see a similar movement against the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Andrew Jackson and other slave owners.

Does this mean we should remove pictures and statures of George Washington and many of our other forefathers who wrote the Constitution. Should we erase George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from Mt. Rushmore with jack hammers? Does this mean we should burn the U.S. Constitution which was written by slave owners? Does this mean we should outlaw the Democrat Party which fought to preserve slavery?

Question: Where does this all end?

Please read an interesting article by Melanie Phillips–“How totalitarianism is winning in the West”.

HOW TOTALITARIANISM IS WINNING IN THE WEST

Credit to the left-leaning Atlantic magazine for running a piece by Peter Beinart, who has actually looked at what is happening in American society and reached an uncomfortable conclusion which would be hard to find elsewhere in the media – and which is all-too pertinent in the wake of Charlottesville.

For Beinart warns that the left is lurching into totalitarianism and violence. “Antifa” purport to be anti-fascist. But they define as fascist anyone they disagree with including mainstream conservatives. Hence their violent suppression of commentators and scholars such as the conservative columnist Ann Coulter, the Breitbart controversialist Milo Yiannopoulos and the political scientist Charles Murray.

What Antifa most certainly do not do is defend democracy, freedom and liberal values. As Beinart observes:

“Since antifa is heavily composed of anarchists, its activists place little faith in the state, which they consider complicit in fascism and racism. They prefer direct action: They pressure venues to deny white supremacists space to meet. They pressure employers to fire them and landlords to evict them. And when people they deem racists and fascists manage to assemble, antifa’s partisans try to break up their gatherings, including by force.”

If this was just a bunch of anarchists, the problem wouldn’t be so bad. What takes this onto a different level altogether is the fact that the mainstream left does not disavow Antifa but tolerates, sanitises and condones it. Referring specifically to the assault last January on the white supremacist Richard Spencer, Beinart continues:

“Such tactics have elicited substantial support from the mainstream left. When the masked antifa activist was filmed assaulting Spencer on Inauguration Day, another piece in The Nation described his punch as an act of ‘kinetic beauty.’ Slate ran an approving article about a humorous piano ballad that glorified the assault. Twitter was inundated with viral versions of the video set to different songs, prompting the former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau to tweet, ‘I don’t care how many different songs you set Richard Spencer being punched to, I’ll laugh at every one.’

“The violence is not directed only at avowed racists like Spencer: In June of last year, demonstrators – at least some of whom were associated with antifa – punched and threw eggs at people exiting a Trump rally in San Jose, California. An article in It’s Going Down celebrated the ‘righteous beatings.’”

As I wrote in The Times (£) yesterday, this has produced an unholy alliance between the left and the far right:

“A white supremacist called Richard Spencer invented the blanket term ‘alt-right’ to associate his ilk with conservatives seeking merely to defend American identity and core values. Through this tactic, Spencer intended to boost the far right and simultaneously smear and thus destroy regular conservatives.

“The left has seized upon this smear with unbridled joy, routinely using the ‘alt-right’ term to try to destroy the national identity agenda by bracketing it with white supremacism. The result is a powerful boost for the far right. From deserved obscurity, they suddenly find the left are transmitting their every utterance to the world. The phrase “useful idiots” comes inescapably to mind.”

First They Came for Confederate Monuments…

It’s a story as old as civilizations passing away, history looping without end…

First they came for the Confederate monuments, because they represented those who fought to maintain slavery.

Then they came for Confederate flags, because banning them would alleviate the hurt of slavery they represented.

Then they came for Confederate names on buildings, on schools and on streets. That which causes offense is not acceptable in our society.

Then they came for the history textbooks, which were revised to avoid causing pain to students confronted with the ugly past in their own country. How could the children endure this?

After a time, they had erased all memories of the Confederacy from the public square and the books — sent them down the memory hole — and all was good with race relations. All would now prosper and feel safe from the offense of history.

But…

Some Founders were slaveholders. And this is intolerable to even think about. So they came for those Founders who owned slaves, most prominent of whom were Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.

They came for the Jefferson and Washington Monuments in the nation’s capital and all statues of Washington and Jefferson, for they caused deep offense. Slaveowners looking down on us!

Then they came for schools named after Jefferson and Washington. Then they came after streets and towns named after Jefferson and Washington. That which causes offense is not acceptable in our society.

Then they came for the history textbooks, which were revised to avoid causing pain to students confronted with the slaveholding realities of the nation’s forefathers. How could the children endure this?

And finally they came after the Capital of the United States, because it was named after a slaveholder. How offensive to every citizen!

After a time, they had erased all memories of every founder who was a slaveholder from the public square and the books — sent down the memory hole — and all was good with race relations. All would now prosper and feel safe from the offense of history.

But…

It was soon remembered that all of the Founders agreed to keep women from being able to vote, to treat them as second-class citizens. This included those who were not slaveholders and those who opposed slavery.

So they came after all of the rest of the Founders not already erased, because they were sexist and diminished women. Hated women. Such sexism can never be celebrated!

Then they came for the monuments to Founders such as John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Paine and the rest for they caused offense, they made some women feel “less than.” Sexist males looking down on us!

Then they came for schools named after Adams and Hamilton. Then they came after streets and towns named after Adams and Hamilton. That which causes offense is not acceptable in our society.

Then they came for the history textbooks, which were revised to avoid causing pain to students confronted with the ugly, sexist past of all of the Founders of their own country. How could the children endure this?

After awhile, they had erased all memories of every Founder — racist and sexist — from the public square and the books — all sent down the memory hole — and all was good with race and gender relations. All would now prosper and feel safe from the offense of history.

But…

Oh, there was so much more still to erase! The impurities!

They came for Christopher Columbus because he brought plagues to the natives and stole their lands and resources. Erase him!

They came for U.S. presidents before the Civil War because they appeased the South with compromises, allowing slavery to expand into more new states in the Union. Erase them!

They came for the Presidents who did not uphold treaties with Native Americans. Erase them!

They came for the 19th century building titans who constructed the Transcontinental Railroad because they paid the Chinese slave labor wages for their work. Erase them!

They came for every corporate baron enriched during the industrial revolution, some of which had used child labor, all of whom had mistreated workers. Erase them!

They came for U.S. Supreme Court justices who upheld slavery in the Dred Scott ruling. Erase them!

They came for the once-revered Woodrow Wilson because he was an overt racist and acted colonially when he began the U.S. occupation of Haiti. Erase him!

They came for Franklin Roosevelt because he put Japanese-Americans in internment camps in World War II. What an offense to have to be faced with! Erase him!

They came for Harry Truman because he used atomic weapons against Japanese civilians — but not Germany — showing his bigotry. Erase him!

They came for Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush. None withstood the next wave of erasure. “Erase them all!” they cried in their purifying fever.

Like the great Eraser’s of kingdoms past from Assyrians to Soviets, they took down all predecessors, all remnants that might remind people of the offensive, unacceptable, unauthorized national history. They erased them all.

In the end, they stood around, panting heavily from their long labors and paused. And then they came for themselves, because such was the voracious appetite to purify history from offense that none could meet the test of purity.

Not even the Erasers.

As Saul Alinsky wrote, “Never let a good crisis go to waste!” 

Rioters for hire is a booming business. Just ask Adam Swart, founder of Crowds on Demand.

If you want to tear down a Confederate statue you can rent rioters to help you pull it down. If you need a white, black or gender supremacist, just call and they will be provided in droves. Are you out of a job and want to earn $25 or more an hour, plus expenses, no problem. Need a flash mob? BTW, peaceful protests are “optional.”

Creating jobs for unemployed haters is chic. Bring your own red spray paint for riot specific graffiti, black mask, rocks, Molotov cocktails, baseball bat or car and get on board a train, bus or plane to get to the riot, all expenses paid. Great summer job for college students from UC Berkeley or University of Virginia in Chancellorsville?

Ever heard of the company Crowds on Demand?

In an August 16th article titled “Why Was This ‘Crowd Hire’ Company Recruiting $25 An Hour ‘Political Activists’ In Charlotte Last Week?” ZeroHedge reported:

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was “blame on both sides” for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend.

Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based “public relations firm specializing in innovative events” to serve as agitators in counterprotests.

The ad was posted by a company called “Crowds on Demand” and offered $25 per hour to “actors and photographers” to participate in events in the “Charlotte, NC area.”  While the ad didn’t explicitly define a role to be filled by its crowd of “actors and photographers” it did ask applicants to comment on whether they were “ok with participating in peaceful protests.”  Here is the text from the ad:

The National Association of Black Journalists Should Consider a Name Change

Last week, I was scheduled to attend the annual convention of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) in New Orleans, but, after receiving a copy of the agenda with the list of speakers, I decided to cancel my trip.

I think the NABJ should change its name to the National Association of “Liberal” Black Journalists, because that is truly what they are, as an organization. I have, for years, told their leadership that they are perceived by Republicans to be closely allied with the Democratic National Committee (DNC). I have even offered to personally arrange for them to meet with leaders of the Republican Party, so that they could begin to cultivate the necessary relationships to be viewed credibly by Republicans, but NABJ leadership has absolutely no interest in being a “professional” group; they would rather be a “partisan” group, instead.

Check out the list of speakers from last week’s convention. There is not one, noted Black Republican or conservative speaker anywhere to be found on the NABJ’s speaker list. Not one.

And hell no, Omarosa Manigault does not count. She is the Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison for the Trump Administration. She’s a liberal Democrat, not a Republican and based on what I’ve read, Omarosa’s appearance at the convention was an absolute mess.

And no, Eboni Williams from Fox News doesn’t count, either. She is a Democrat/Independent.

When you view the list of speakers, it’s a who’s who of very liberal Democrats and NABJ’s leaders wonder why the Republicans don’t take them seriously?

Need more proof that the NABJ is in the tank for the DNC? Check out the list of panelists for their “NABJ Newsmaker Plenary”:

Moderator:

Byron Pitts, ABC’s “Nightline”

Speakers:

Shani Hilton | Head of U.S. News, BuzzFeed News
Rashida Jones | Senior Vice President, Specials, NBC News/MSNBC
April Ryan | White House Correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, Author, “At Mama’s Knee: Mothers and Race in Black and White”
Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. | Publisher and Chairman, The New York Times
Lauren Williams | Executive Editor, VOX News
Cheryl Boone Isaacs | Immediate Past President, Academy Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Marc Morial | President, National Urban League
Symone Sanders | CNN Political Commentator, Priorities USA strategist
Nina Turner | President, (Former Ohio State Senator and CNN Contributor), Our Revolution

Every, single one of these panelists works for an organization that leans left or is straight up radically liberal.

Obviously, no Black Republicans fit the NABJ’s “Newsmaker” description. I have told the leadership of NABJ, in no uncertain terms, that I would be happy to provide them a list of people who they could call upon, if they were interested and, as usual, there continues to be absolutely no interest from the group.

NABJ’s bias is so great, that they even had a panel on diversity with absolutely no “diversity”—ideologically speaking. Every person was a liberal.

They even had several speakers from the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, but, obviously, they are incapable of finding any speakers who are pro-life; or maybe they are just uninterested.

I couldn’t make this stuff up, if you paid me. Diversity of thought is nowhere to be found within NABJ.

Aren’t they doing the same thing that they, and other liberal groups, accuse corporate America of doing? As a dues paying member of NABJ, I find their lack of diversity of thought and their conscious willingness to ignore the issue, very offensive and hypocritical.

How can they constantly harp on the lack of diversity in media newsrooms and other institutions and not see that they are guilty of the same thing?

The group is supposed to be about improving opportunities for Blacks in journalism, media, and public relations. It’s worth noting that Republican members of Congress hire professionals in communication, journalism, and media for their official staffs and campaigns. Republican members of Congress also hire college interns from across the country.

By mandate of their own by-laws, they are obligated to expose their membership to the wide array of opportunities that exist in the marketplace and not to serve as a farm system or pipeline for all things liberal.

If the NABJ wants to serve as a surrogate for the DNC and other liberal organizations, then they should formally amend their bylaws to indicate that. But, if they are going to hold themselves out to be a professional organization, then maybe they should start acting like a professional organization.

Charlottesville Violence Only The Beginning Unless We End Identity Politics

This was all so obviously inevitable, the predictable result of divisive identity politics perpetrated on the American people — the exact opposite of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Unfortunately, it won’t end in Charlottesville. The alt right and white supremacists, the Antifa and BLM groups — none of whom represent the best or even the good in America — will arm up, plan and ramp up the hatred and divisiveness. Because that is what comes from slicing up Americans by every conceivable grievance.

And instead of calling us higher, to the vision of America as a shining city on a hill, too many Washington politicians will do their best to take personal advantage of the situation. And already have. Democrats have been doing that for years by carving Americans along race, ethnicity, gender and income and pitting them against each other to get the votes of the aggrieved. It’s a directly dis-unifying strategy. Trump appealed to the backlash from that and while he is not a white supremacist, there’s no doubt he attracted their support.

Let’s get a couple of points clear. The alt right is not principled conservatism, or at least the racist elements are not. White supremacists are definitely not conservative. The rally in Charlottesville was ugly and unAmerican in its very origins, long before the violence broke out Saturday. Racists’ actions are hateful and should be called out — whether by whites or blacks or browns or whomever.

But there’s the problem, the step back to see a broader context for Saturday. According to many Americans on the left, particularly in academia, blacks actually cannot be racist because they are a minority and were oppressed by whites in the South 50 years ago. It’s true that they were, but the idea that racism can only come from the majority is nonsensical. Are only blacks racist in South Africa where they are the huge majority? Of course not. Hispanics, the left claims, cannot be racist because they’ve been oppressed by whites all the way back to the initial European settlers — which is not really historically accurate, but it still works to divide. Only whites can be racist by this theory. Yes, that is precisely what the thought-leaders on the left preach and teach, and it works to be wonderfully divisive.

So this did not happen in a vacuum on Saturday. Let’s also be clear on plain human nature. A nation cannot tell an entire class of its people — in this iteration, white males — that they are the source of the country’s evils and have no legitimate opinion on entire swaths of issues. From college campuses to social media, white males are told to check their privilege, sit down and shut up. Literally. That is as un-American as the Charlottesville marchers.

If blacks are not supposed to listen to whites because they are white, and Hispanics are not supposed to listen to whites because they are whites, and women aren’t supposed to listen to white men because they are men (I know, it’s not consistent but it is part of intersectional politics, see below) then how does this possibly end well?

To put a fine point on the obvious, it doesn’t.

To think there would not be a backlash by some in the target group was naive at best. Purposeful at worst. To think that when violence was being perpetrated by Black Lives Matter and Antifa, that violence would not be perpetrated by white supremacists, was naive at best. Purposeful at worst.

Why purposeful at worst? Because there is a long line of philosophy on the far left that in order to overthrow the strong national order in the United States, American society must be foundationally destabilized.

Saul Alinsky’s real life radicals

Saul Alinsky was a fairly vile, anti-American radical leftist revolutionary who was deeply influential on the lives of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. This is really important.

In 1971, Alinsky wrote the seminal work for bringing down a stable, democratic America in “Rules for Radicals.” That Alinsky dedicated the book to Satan tells you a lot:

“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.”

Alinsky wrote that ethics, integrity and morals should be shunted aside for the purpose of the revolution. He believed that the long-term strategy of pitting segments of society against each other would undermine the nation and lead to the opportunity for, shall we say, “fundamentally changing” the country — in President Obama’s words.

In an interview with Playboy magazine in 1972, Alinsky said: “All life is warfare, and it’s the continuing fight against the status quo that revitalizes society, stimulates new values and gives man renewed hope of eventual progress. The struggle itself is the victory.”

Continuing fight. The struggle itself is victory.

Why is Alinsky so important? For one, he is still a favorite on college campuses. But more importantly, he is a favorite among leading Democrats today. Barack Obama worked directly with Alinsky organizations and taught seminars on his tactics as a community organizer — one of the methods Alinsky promoted in his book. Organize various groups to fight those in authority.

Hillary Clinton wrote her senior thesis at Wellesley College on Alinsky, personally interviewing him for her paper. Alinsky was so impressed by her that he offered her a job, but she chose a different opportunity.

Alinsky specifically urged the division of society into many parts so one part takes from the other part to create “change” — and remember, change is both the method and the goal. That’s precisely what Obama did as President and the general platform of not just Hillary Clinton, but the Democratic Party. I know this sounds partisan, but it is a principled part of today’s progressives and their party. Fundamental change by pitting segments of Americans against other segments of Americans — not principles of liberty or rights, just division and strife.

Obama and Black Lives Matter

Moe reality is that American blacks had a rough go of it for the first three-quarters of America’s history. From slavery to Jim Crow, American blacks have had extra hurdles in pursuit of the American dream, and it is a stain on the country that it was so. That they also suffered under a level of police brutality, primarily in Southern states, is also a fact of history. That there could be lingering resentment over this is understandable, if not laudable.

And racism remains…among all people groups because the reality is that it is a dark element in human nature. It is immune to skin color.

However, we were moving in a positive direction in the 1950s and 1960s. Institutional and societal racism were declining in the United States and the Civil Rights successes in the 1960s were high points in leaping forward. Race continued to play a smaller role in the 1970s, but there was also a rising tide of race grievance where people who claimed to be civil rights leaders in the mold of Martin Luther King, were actually closer to race hucksters acting to greatly enriched themselves while pretending to be about civil rights.

By the 1980s, blacks had become a permanent, uniform voting bloc for Democrats — ironically, given that a larger percentage of Republicans supported the civil rights laws than did Democrats. And the Democratic Party was seeing the electoral benefits of dividing and pitting American against American, a la Alinsky.

Fast forward to 2008. As the first black president, Barack Obama had the unique opportunity to bring racial healing in another great leap forward, and many whites hoped he would do that. Many voted for him specifically in hopes of finally moving beyond race and truly embracing King’s dream.

But remember, Obama was an Alinsky-ite. That philosophy never called for healing, but for a continuing fight against authority — even though Obama was the nation’s ultimate authority as President.

A fair reading of President Obama’s eight years in office is that he made race relations much worse, typically by leaping to conclusions without the facts and actively alienating virtually all police and many white Americans — including some of those who voted for him.

From the Beer Summit to Trayvon Martin to Ferguson to Baltimore, in every instance of conflict between blacks and police or blacks and whites, Obama took the opportunity to deepen black resentment of whites, institutions and cops. Society was stacked against them. It was a poisonous response.

One result was the creation of Black Lives Matter, whose entire mission seems to be to create unrest and dissatisfaction through selective protests — but to do actually nothing in terms of saving black lives. BLM’s actions oppose the principles Martin Luther King espoused, but they are in lockstep with the ones Saul Alinsky espoused.

Of course, there have been bad shootings of blacks by police, and some cops have been arrested and convicted for them.

But Alinsky’s rules do not call for letting laws and the justice system work. They call for destabilization through division and violence to undermine the order of the nation, and BLM is a player in that.

College campus cults and intersectionality

American universities have become a hotbed for identity politics which are enforced through special treatment and speech codes — none of which seem in any way to be Constitutional.

College campuses have “safe spaces” that act as anti-free-speech zones. You cannot say anything that might offend another — and that depends on the other’s definition of what is offensive. Tricky. Other campuses have flipped it to free-speech zones, allowing the First Amendment only in a small, cordoned area that students can avoid. Echoing Orwell’s 1984, Speech codes are common.

And it is on college campuses where all of the Alinsky-ite divisions have been categorized and prioritized into a hierarchy of who bears the greatest grievance. It’s called “intersectionality.”

This is the study of intersections between groups representing different forms of oppression and discrimination. It is used to bind together various aggrieved groups into a political weapon. So feminists and gays and blacks may band together to protest an issue where say, transgenders were not getting fair treatment. This makes them more powerful and is precisely what Alinsky instructed in getting minority groups to create a majority influence and overturn the power structure.

But does a white feminist from the suburbs have the same aggrieved status as a poor black transgendered woman? No!

So intersectionality sets up a pyramid of the aggrieved with women, Hispanics, blacks, gays, transgendered, handicapped, fat, short and everything else. White males are not among those on the pyramid because someone has to be the oppressor. If a person is contained in two or more of these categories, their aggrieved status increases. White females are at the bottom, unless they are transgendered then they rise.

The queen of the pyramid might be a short black transgender female in a wheelchair. Unassailable, according to intersectionality.

It’s tribalism at its most pernicious. It serves to divide and weaken the nation’s foundations because none of it has anything to do with the U.S. Constitution or universal truths for all mankind.

And so…Charlottesville

For years I and others have been warning that this ugly divide-and-conquer identity politics was going to inevitably lead to some dark places in American culture. And so it did on Saturday, as it was building to from Ferguson.

By now most everyone has heard that a “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. turned violent and deadly on Saturday. It was spawned out of attempts by leaders in Charlottesville to take down a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

The demonstration of a weird amalgamation of alt-righters, Confederate sympathizers, white supremacists, KKK-ers and veterans seemed relatively peaceful, if distasteful. The white nationalist flags were ugly. But Black Lives Matters and Antifa showed up in force and both sides had helmets and primitive weapons. Eventually things got violent, which seems like was ultimately the point, perhaps for both sides.

(Ironically, the black-clad Antifa stands for anti-fascist while the group uses fascistic tactics across the country. They are a slice aligned with left, but not always owned by the left.)

Things got really ugly and tragic when a car was driven into the crowded street, apparently aimed at the Antifa and BLM group, with horrific results.

But forgive me if this entire picture does not look a bit like what Alinsky was teaching in Rules for Radicals, a handbook of the activist Left and leaders in the Democratic Party.

The only solution is Martin Luther King’s dream

Martin Luther King was truly one of the great men of his era and a prophet of what is needed to heal this country. His loss was incalculable and I fear we continue to reap the results of it.

In his famous and powerful “I have a dream” speech in 1963 in Washington, D.C., King said, in part:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

[ … ]

“And when this happens, and when we allow freedom to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual:

“Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”

That is the only American society that can endure. We must choose: The principles of Martin Luther King or the principles of Saul Alinsky.

THE UNSTOPPABLE TRUMP TRAIN: Delivering on His Promises, Decimating the Opposition

Hard to know which body is held in lower esteem, the Congress or the media. But for a long time the media thought they were invincible, based largely on their success after forming the JournOlist in 2007––a cabal of 400 leftists who vowed to destroy anyone who said a single bad word about the poseur “president” Barack Obama.

When said poseur denied his lifelong friendships and political associations with fulminating anti-Semites, enacted the disaster of socialized medicine and socialized public education, eviscerated our military, doubled the national debt, signed a deal with genocidal Iran, and sang the praises of peaceful Islam as dozens of horrific Muslim terrorist attacks around the world attested to a decidedly sub-human species, JournOlist went into action to squash his critics like they were so many pesky cockroaches.

COLLUSION 101

The JournOlist’s goal last year was to insure that the, ahem, legacy of the poseur would be continued by another globalist shill, Hillary Clinton, who shamelessly extorted massive “donations” from foreign government leaders and tin-pot dictators alike to fill the coffers of the Clinton Foundation, a slush fund of undisguised bribes and payoffs designed to insure access to power. Curious that this windfall completely dried up the day after Nov. 8, 2016.

Not that anyone liked Hillary or could stop themselves from cringing as she bobbled her head, affected a southern accent in front of black audiences, and lied through her teeth at every turn.

No, to the real powers-that-be on the Council of Foreign Relations, the World Monetary Fund, in the cesspool known as the United Nations, and the big-money guys on Wall St. who actually buy our politicians and so run our country, Hillary was yet another Barack Obama, an easy-to-manipulate functionary, a front person to do their bidding and move them closer to the One World Government––and total power and control––they all crave.

And why do they crave such immense power? Partly for the accumulation of even greater wealth––my bank account is bigger than yours!––but also because they genuinely believe that they are immeasurably smarter than the masses and so exquisitely suited to call all the shots about everything to do with human existence from cradle to grave.

UH OH––MEGALOMANIUS INTERRUPTUS

After nearly one-hundred years of planning and plotting their takeover of the Democratic Republic of big bad capitalist America, the socialists and communists and jihadists among us––who under Obama, frighteningly, were implanted in the highest positions in virtually all departments of our government, hence the avalanche of leaks––along came a genuinely unanticipated wild card into the presidential race of 2015-16, billionaire businessman and successful TV personality Donald J. Trump.

Everyone witnessed the patronizing and supercilious snickering of fake journalists like ABC-TV’s George Stephanopoulos, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Greenspan, CBS-TV’s Scott Pelley, NBC-TV’s Chuck Todd, everyone at CNN starting with its president Jeff Zucker, at the prospect of a Donald J. Trump candidacy.

Everyone––except for we Trump believers––watched and believed all the pollsters, every single one of them, predict not a mere Hillary win, but a resounding victory, right up until 8 p.m. on the night of the vote.

And, of course, everyone remembers that in spite of all the billions spent on Hillary’s candidacy, in spite of every [inaccurate poll], in spite of a Democrat Party that over decades has become expert in rigging elections, and especially in spite of the rancid collusion of the media in predicting her win, the American people had another idea.

Not since we peasants rose up between 1775 and 1783 to defeat the Crown of England under the leadership of General George Washington has an electorate been so inflamed and passionate and ideologically driven as in the election of Donald Trump on November 8, 2016.

Our message was clear: We hate the Communism and Socialism and Jihadism that has contaminated our body politic, and we love American patriotism and capitalism and a strong military and the man who is saying “Make America Great Again!”

HYSTERICS

Throughout American history, both on a national, state and local level, contentious elections have been won and lost by a hair. Sometimes there is a lengthy recount, as in Bush v Gore in 2000. Sometimes there is litigation, usually to no avail. But there has never been anything like the massive leftist meltdown after Donald Trump walloped Hillary in the Electoral College and won the presidency.

To this day, the hysterics go on. Why is that?

It is because President Trump’s victory was a total, complete, comprehensive, and devastating repudiation of everything Barack Obama and the left stood for, but more important what his handlers and billionaire world-globalists and the leftist media moguls stood for, and, of course, what Democrats and Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) stood for.

According to Wayne Allen Root, in discussing the recently failed Obamacare repeal vote––but this applies generally––“the senators who voted against the repeal are corrupted, bribed, on the take. Senators and Congressmen are making an unimaginable fortune off of Obamacare. That’s why they are against the repeal. They don’t want to end the gravy train. They want the system complex and expensive. They want government involved. They want taxpayer money wasted by the billions. That’s how they milk the system. They all own stocks of medical companies, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies. I’m betting many actually own companies with government contracts that benefit from Obamacare. They put them in the names of their spouses, children, parents, siblings, childhood buddies. They own them in offshore accounts. The conflicts of interest are the size of Texas.”

There you have it. But candidate Trump took a machete to the entirely crooked, corrupt, self-serving, back-slapping, vote-rigging system that has been running our country and economy and foreign policy and independence into the ground for the past at-least 75 years.

It’s as if someone showed up at your door and told you that everything about your life, your values, your beliefs, even the furnishings in your home were meaningless and disposable.

“But I’ve lived here for 50 years!” you may protest. “This is who I am, what I’ve worked for, my belief system, my identity!”

“Tough,” the person at your door says. “You have bad values, warped beliefs, shabby furnishings, a malevolent identity, and you’re a crook––and I am here to wipe you out, and everything you stand for! And by the way, I’m also going to expose all your dirty laundry, your crimes, and the criminals who aided and abetted you along the way.”

That is what we are witnessing today. Thankfully, President Trump is still the smartest guy in the room and fully up to dealing with the sewer rats who are spending every day and night trying to undermine him.

NO UNDERMINING THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

In mid-May, I wrote an article entitled The Juggernaut & the Jerks, which spelled out the stupendous accomplishments of President Donald Trump in his first three months in office. The response was tremendous, many people thanking me for bringing to their attention hundreds of the president’s achievements they had never heard of or read about or seen on TV. They agreed with my description of the president as a virtual unstoppable juggernaut and that members of the media were indeed a bunch of jerks.

Well, whaddaya know? Plus ça change, plus la même chose! Now that the juggernaut president has just passed his 200th day in office, he is still going at warp speed in chalking up significant accomplishments and, at the same time, draining both the national and international swamplands that have contaminated our politics for decades, and the media are still spewing out fake news and fake polls in their desperate but impotent attempts to derail the unstoppable Trump Train.

Here is an impressive––but not comprehensive––list of President Trump’s accomplishments in his second three (almost four) months in office:

  1. The President traveled to Saudi Arabia (where he demanded that the Arab world do its share to stop terrorism); Israel (where he was the first U.S. president to visit the Western Wall); and the Vatican. He also traveled to Warsaw, Poland where he spoke proudly and passionately about the virtues of western civilization.
  2. In the Trump White House, there are 110 fewer employees on staff than under Obama, to the tune of $5.1 million in savings: currently, five staffers for Melania Trump vs. 24 staffers for Michelle Obama.
  3. The President donated his first-quarter salary of approx. $78,000 to the National Parks Service.

The President also did the following:

  1. Created the Office of American Innovation to streamline and improve the Government for future generations.
  2. Signed Executive Orders:
  3. to “Buy American and Hire American” and to make it easier for businesses to start and expand apprenticeship programs;
  4. to mandate that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated, which can potentially reduce costs by $70 billion, according to The American Action Forum.
  5. to control regulatory costs that will dramatically reduce permit approvals for projects from 10 years to 2 years, spurring investment and job creation.
  6. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased 17 percent since Election Day, hitting new highs 25 times this year already.
  7. Since January, the economy added almost a million new jobs, including in the private sector.
  8. The President signed 14 Congressional Review Act resolutions into law, ending burdensome Obama-era rules and regulations, more than all other Presidents combined.
  9. By withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord, President Trump protected America from a bad deal that would have harmed our economy, cost the U.S. nearly $3 trillion, and lost 6.5 million industrial-sector jobs and 3.1 million manufacturing-sector jobs.
  10. The President increased exports of our energy resources to a global market, updated guidance from the Treasury Department to allow the United States to export coal, and expedited the permitting and approval processes of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals and exports, including the approval of the Lake Charles LNG terminal in Louisiana.
  11. He unleashed oil and gas development in the United States by expanding access to resources and the infrastructure needed to get them to market; he approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, creating over 42,000 jobs and $2 billion in earnings.
  12. He signed Executive Orders mandating (1) future pipeline work to be done by American workers and with American steel, and he expedited new pipeline approval and production, such as the New Burgos Pipeline to Mexico, and (2) the extension of offshore oil and gas drilling and he reissued a leasing program to develop offshore resources.
  13. The President also boosted oil and gas development on Federal lands.
  14. Now, President Trump is reconsidering the Obama-era Environmental Protection Agency rule on greenhouse gas emissions that is estimated to cost oil and natural gas operators as much as $530 million annually.
  15. President Trump rolled back Obama’s “Stream Protection Rule,” which targeted the beleaguered coal industry with estimated costs of at least $81 million a year.
  16. He also withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which failed to protect American workers, and he promised to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to better reflect our modern economy while benefitting all parties involved.
  17. The President began the process of renegotiating the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement. In addition, negotiations started with China on economic cooperation have already produced results for American businesses. For the first time in 14 years, American beef imports have returned to China and China is now welcome to negotiate contracts to import American liquefied natural gas.
  18. The President rolled back the Obama Administration’s bad deal with Cuba that benefitted the Cuban regime at the expense of the Cuban people.
  19. The President instituted tough immigration policies that have reduced illegal border crossings by 53 percent compared to the same time last year.
  20. President Trump ordered the hiring of 10,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, including 5,000 additional border patrol agents. Within the first 100 days, ICE conducted nearly 40 percent more Enforcement and Removal Operations compared to the same time last year, and arrests of convicted criminal aliens climbed by nearly 20 percent in this time compared to the same time last year. In fiscal year 2017, ICE has removed over 2,700 criminal gang members, compared to 2,057 criminal gang members in all of fiscal year 2016. ICE has specifically targeted MS-13 criminal gang members for removal on immigration violations. Since January, 66,000 illegal immigrants have been arrested, more than 70% of them having criminal records.
  21. According to journalist and former NY City Police Chief Jim Kouri, in July, two major law enforcement operations led by the FBI, DEA and the Dutch National Police, shut down the infrastructure of an underground criminal economy and two huge crime outfits, AlphaBay and Hansa, responsible for the trading of over 350 000 illicit commodities including drugs, firearms and cybercrime malware.
  22. The President ordered the Department of Homeland Security to use $100 million of unspent appropriations in its account for border security, fencing and infrastructure.
  23. He ordered the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office at DHS, ensuring that our Government can no longer ignore the victims of criminal acts by illegal aliens.
  24. Under President Trump, Department of Veterans Affairs fired over 500 employees, suspended 200, demoted 33, and disciplined 22 senior leaders as part of the effort to restore integrity and accountability to a department charged with supporting our nation’s heroes.
  25. President Trump signed the Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, enabling senior Veterans Affairs officials to fire failing employees while establishing important safeguards to protect whistleblowers.
  26. The President is now starting the process of shifting veterans’ electronic medical records to the same system used by the Defense Department, ending a decades-old rift in sharing information between the two agencies.
  27. President Trump signed into law a bill providing over $2 billion to open new Veterans Affairs department medical facilities and fund care for veterans seeking medical care outside the government system.
  28. President Trump brokered a ceasefire in southwest Syria as part of the U.S. commitment to end the conflict, reduce human suffering, and defeat ISIS.
  29. He supported the opening of a new “Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology” in Saudi Arabia, created to empower Muslim-majority countries to more effectively combat radicalization.
  30. The President increased pressure on Iran to end its destructive and destabilizing actions in the Middle East, including its continued ballistic missile research.
    1. The Department of the Treasury sanctioned over 25 entities and individuals involved in Iran’s ballistic missile program, ensuring our ability to monitor potentially malicious actors while preventing future acts of terrorism.
    1. This week, the United States sanctioned sixteen entities and individuals that have supported Iran’s military and Revolutionary Guard Corps in the development of drones, fast attack boats, and other military equipment.
    2. In his first six months, President Trump worked with our partners and allies in the Middle East to defeat ISIS, leading to Iraqi forces recapturing Mosul.
    3. After the Syrian regime used chemical weapons against civilians, President Trump authorized strikes against the airbase that launched the chemical attacks, demonstrating our national commitment to preventing further atrocities.
    4. President Trump has lifted restrictions that had prevented the Secretary of Defense and our commanders in the field from fully using their judgement and expertise.
  1. President Trump cut $600 million from United Nations’ laughable peacekeeping budget.
  2. President Trump signed two resolutions, one encouraging women at NASA and another promoting women in entrepreneurship.

Further, according to both The Gateway Pundit and Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large at Breitbart News:

  1. In President Trump’s first six months, the U.S. Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.
  2. The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 18% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – the other day it closed at over 22,000).
  3. The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ have both set new all-time highs during this period: the U.S. Stock Market gained $4 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected and the S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.
  4. According to Bloomberg News, U.S. corporate profits in the second quarter “have beaten estimates at more than three-quarters of the Standard & Poor’s 500 member companies. In every sector, at least half of the companies have surpassed or met expectations, with many also getting a boost from a sinking U.S. dollar.”
  5. S. Debt has decreased under President Trump since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 6 months more than $974 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion.)
  6. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, President Trump added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than 3,826,000 million jobs in his first six months.
  7. Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate since President Trump’s inauguration decreased from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). Unemployment under President Obama’s first six months in office, the unemployment rate increased each month from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.5% by June of 2009.
  8. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%.
  9. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.
  10. The U.S. Manufacturing Index soared to a 33-year high in President Trump’s first six months, which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan.
  11. The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates three times since President Trump was elected into office in November. The Fed increased interest rates only once in Obama’s 8 Years prior to the increase after President Trump’s winning the election in November.
  12. Illegal immigration is down almost 70% under President Trump.
  13. Since President Trump took office in January 2017, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics on food stamp enrollment, more than 1.1 million Americans dropped off the food stamp rolls.
  14. NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 billion because of President Trump.
  15. After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as Supreme Court Justice in early April.
  16. The President has signed around 150 executive orders, memoranda and proclamations as of July 19th, including (to name but a few): dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives; travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities; enforcing regulatory reform; protecting law enforcement; rebuilding the military; cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
  17. President Trump launched his Voter Fraud Commission, officially the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
  18. President Trump announced on Twitter on July 26: “After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”
  19. President Trump continued to shut Democrats out in special elections, which the media expected them to win on a supposed wave of anti-Trump sentiment. In Montana, Republican Greg Gianforte won even after being arrested for assaulting a Guardian reporter, and in Georgia, Karen Handel won the most expensive congressional race in history after her Democratic challenger, Jon Ossoff, had looked like a heavy favorite just days before.
  20. Last week, President Trump joined Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) to announce legislation about changes to our immigration laws for the first time in more than half a century. The RAISE Act (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment), instead of admitting immigrants on the basis of often specious “family” ties, would choose the immigrants based on merit, with points granted for skills, English proficiency, advanced degrees, actual job offers, et al.
  21. About 30 percent of the territory the American-led coalition has retaken from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in Iraq and Syria since 2014 has been liberated under U.S. President Donald Trump’s watch, according to a senior State Department official. In total, the U.S.-led coalition has re-conquered 27,000 square miles (about 78 percent) of the 35,000 square miles ISIS is believed to have controlled at its peak in Iraq and Syria in early 2015.
  22. According to writer Larry Schweikart, President Trump “is advancing his Greatness Agenda through court appointments like wildfire.” To date, he “has outpaced Barack Obama and Bill Clinton with his judicial appointees.”

According to political operative Roger Stone:

  1. President Trump signed a bill into law to reduce the backlog of families of fallen police officers waiting to receive benefits due to their status.
  2. Under President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama Administration memo that directed the Bureau of Prisons to begin phasing out private prisons.
  3. Again, under President Trump, the Justice Department prosecuted two doctors and one other for the subhuman practice of female genital mutilation––the first such prosecutions under a federal law passed by Congress in 1996 prohibiting the practice.
  4. Despite historic Democrat obstructionism, President Trump has worked with Congress to pass more legislation in his first 100 days than any President since Truman!
  5. In June, the Trump Administration sent 20 ATF agents to Chicago to help the city fight gun violence. The local U.S. Attorney said the same day that his office had already prosecuted more Chicago gun cases in 2017 than it had done throughout the entire 2016.
  6. President Trump, in “another critical step to restoring local control,” signed an Executive Order for Secretary of Education Betsy De Vos to review Dept. of Education regulations, with the intention of returning power to the states and local governments and to review, modify and possibly repeal any regulations and guidelines that are not consistent with federal law.

The staged protests we’re witnessing, even as I type, are funded by the same globalists who embrace capitalism with a passion––hence their billions––and live in dazzling splendor and luxury. But they sucker astoundingly gullible leftists into believing they are for “the little man” who needs Big Government to survive, and they pay them to hold up shiny new placards and protest a president who is actually––empirically––bringing jobs and safety and fair trade and border security and respect for our veterans and genuine equality back to America.

If leftists can’t get on board with this agenda, I quote President Trump when he says: “Sad.”

The Democrats are taking offense at being labeled obstructionists. An “urgent” Democrat National Campaign Committee email reads:

We’re fuming. In the wake of this weekend’s events, Trump released his first re-election attack ad. And he’s BLAMING DEMOCRATS for dividing the country!

Trump's new attack ad

It’s horrific. It’s disgusting. And it couldn’t be further from the truth. We need to create a backlash so large that Trump regrets EVER releasing this shameful attack.

Every gift will go towards electing Democrats who oppose Trump and his bigotry.

So there you have it. Denial by Democrats. Of course its not the Democrats who are obstructing the repeal and replacement of Obamacare. Its not the Democrats who are holding up President Trumps appointments to key positions within his administration. Its not Democrats who have called for “resistance” against anything and all things in the President’s agenda like:

  • Build the wall.
  • Cut taxes.
  • Reduce and eliminate regulatory burden on small businesses.
  • Increase spending for the U.S. military.
  • And on, and on, and on.

What makes their efforts to resist the President lies in one word – “bigot.” Using this word makes all of their obstruction just wash itself away.

President Trumps Next Move MUST Count

President Donald Trump is one of Americas most intelligent and successful business moguls and he has no doubt survived many assaults on his family and businesses in the highly competitive and sometimes cut-throat world of business. But the kind of evil he entered upon accepting the Oval Office in his effort to “Make America Great Again” was beyond his imagination… It makes mob business battles look like child’s play.

From the moment Trump announced his bid for the White House, he, his family and his friends have all been under constant attack by the global power structure erected long ago in America. The Soros network of bought and paid for politicians and his more than 200 anti-American NGOs have been busy around the clock undermining Trump and they won’t stop until someone stops them…

The Triangulation of Trump

Trump survived the GOP primaries, then the general election and even his inauguration. But what happened next, only those who have been tracking the global elite for years could predict. Trump was admittedly blindsided by the depth and breadth of the “swamp.” He has been scrambling to stop the leaks from within his own staff and defend against an onslaught of assaults 24/7 since the day he was sworn in… and at present, he is losing the battle.

The “never-Trump” op is not only alive and well, it has Trump in a box. Beyond his Executive Orders, his agenda is dead in the water in the other two branches of the Federal Government and even 44 states are fighting his effort to drain the voter rolls of dead and illegal voters. Leftist sanctuary cities and states are openly subverting national sovereignty and security by thwarting Federal Immigration and Naturalization laws with total impunity. The “fake” Russian narrative continues despite a total lack of evidence, while the real political criminals in this country roam scot-free.

Meanwhile, Trumps champion of truth and justice AG Jeff Sessions, remains impotent by his own ill-advised recusal, with a gun to his head forcing him to sit on the sidelines as his boss is publicly annihilated by their common enemies.

Trump is triangulated and his next move MUST count, or he can’t survive…

Key Targets

Most of the key targets were identified in a Senate Judiciary Committee November 2, 2016 letter to DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz. On January 12, 2017 – Horowitz agreed to investigate, but then named himself the lead investigator, after which, no such investigation has advanced.

With Sessions in the recusal box, the DOJ is being run by long-time cohorts IG Horowitz, Deputy AG Rob Rosenstein and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, all of whom also have long-term active relationships with the Bush family, Bill and Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Obama, Loretta Lynch and numerous other “never-Trumpers.”

To escape his triangulated position, Trump must make the right moves swiftly and decisively or the swamp will continue to eat him alive.

Trumps Next Move

On the very real basis of obvious conflicts of interests and the reality that DOJ IG Horowitz has been running cover for the prior democrat administrations for years and now allows “fake” investigations on Trump-Russia to continue under the leadership of close comrades Mueller and Rosenstein – while deep sixing all investigations into Clinton-Obama crimes, Trump must fire both Horowitz and Rosenstein immediately, freeing AG Sessions to keep his oath of office.

Next, the Mueller (Clinton) lynch mob running the “never-Trump” investigations must also be fired immediately, as they were established by Rosenstein and Horowitz for the sole purpose of destroying Trump by any means. The entire Mueller lynch mob was created based on a “fake” illegal memo leaked to Columbia University friend Daniel Richmond, as former FBI Director James Comey testified to before Congress, made public by the Washington Post which has been ground zero for “fake” anti-Trump headlines for months now.

Another critical player in this evil “never-Trump” web is acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who also has long-time affiliations with this group of actors, his wife having received a reported $700,000 in funding from the Clinton Campaign so that McCabe would help steer the “never-Trump” op after the Comey firing.

To Escape Triangulation

Trump must take the following steps immediately… firing all the following as his starting point for “draining the swamp” that is currently eating him alive.

Due to the never-ending security breaches that become lead stories in the Washington Post and New York Times daily, Trump must also immediately revoke Obama Executive Order 13526 which allows former administration staffers to retain unfettered security clearance and access, which they are currently using to undermine Trump and “leak” info out through the Washington Post and New York Times.

Trump is fighting both parties in Congress, the leftist courts, leftist mayors and governors across the country and this web of “never-Trumpers” running the Department of Justice.

No matter how smart or tough Trump may be, he will fall prey to this operation soon if he does not remove his enemies from these posts before Congress returns from recess. If he doesn’t pull the trigger on this, he will very likely face indictments (on fake evidence) from the Mueller mob very soon, backed by Rosenstein and Horowitz.

Senator Chuck Grassley and House Rep. King are trying to force a real investigation forward. These efforts are being blocked by Horowitz, Rosenstein, McCabe and Mueller. Trump has the power to single-handedly change it all. He MUST do it now!

The Alt-Left confronts the Alt-Left in Charlottesville, Virginia

The media is miss reporting the tragic events during a torchlight march by neo-Nazis and ensuing violence that occurred on the campus of the University of Virginia.

A prime example is the report by The Daily Progress which labels the torch light marchers as the “alt-right” when in fact they are the alt-left. The Daily Progress in its article “Fire and Fury” wrote:

Echoing the May 13 rally at the foot of Charlottesville’s Robert E. Lee statue, hundreds of torch-wielding white nationalists who are attending Saturday’s Unite the Right rally gathered at the University of Virginia and marched to the Rotunda, chanting, “You will not replace us.”

After the march, which began at UVa’s Nameless Field, reached the Rotunda, police later declared an unlawful assembly. Protesters and opponents alike reported being affected by pepper spray.

At the feet of a statue of Thomas Jefferson, fights began breaking out and some wielding tiki torches swung them at people. At least one person was arrested, and several people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

These so called “white nationalists” are in fact neo-Nazis. According to Otto Wagener in Hitler: Memoirs of a Confidant Adolf Hitler stated,

We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.

In a Philanthropy Roundtable article titled “Some People Love to Call Names” Karl Zinsmeister writes:

At the end of 2016, the Chronicle of ­Philanthropy published an article headlined “Dozens of ‘Hate Groups’ Have Charity Status, Chronicle Study Finds.” The “study” took at face value a list of 900 entities pinned with the “hate” label by a notoriously partisan attack group—the Southern ­Poverty Law Center. Over the years, numerous investigators have pointed out that most of the scary KKK and Nazi and militia groups that the SPLC insists are lurking under our beds are actually ghost entities, with no employees, no address, hardly any followers, and little or no footprint. But “hate groups” and “extremist organizations” are great copy, especially for fundraising (more on that below). So the SPLC list of stormtroopers-in-our-midst is catnip for journalists looking for dramatic stories.

[ … ]

There are two chief reasons the SPLC lives on in its current irresponsible form:

1) Its efforts to demonize political opponents make for useful drama if you’re a journalist looking for a social-justice story.
2) Raising the alarm about dangerous bigots on the loose is a potent way to raise money from concerned progressives.

Read more.

The media continues to mislabel groups as White Supremacist when they are in fact reminiscent of the Ku Klux Klan, the militant wing of the Democrat Party, and the Nazi Party which promoted a pure Aryan race.

Those carrying torches in Charlottesville are reminiscent of the Nazi torchlight marches in Germany.

Torchlight Vigil in Charlottesville.

As Zinsmeister concludes:

From the French Revolution to Joseph ­McCarthy, partisans have over and over used name calling to sully opponents, end debate, and block necessary cultural reforms. It’s often effective—as their heirs at the SPLC know. There is an American habit, though, of disdain for scaremongering, personal vilification, and attempts to censor discussion. We hope donors will think twice the next time some charity they are supporting or considering gets the side-eye from the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, Organizing for Action, the Summer of Resistance, the Womens March and Antifa movements are all alt-left and like Adolf Hitler, are devout socialists who are “enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system.” All are bent on destroying America, a global symbol of capitalism, at all cost. These organizations are all linked to the Democrat Party.

The media encourages each by name calling those who oppose them, or worse blame the innocent for their hateful behaviors.

Leading Pro-Trump Super PAC joins Ward for U.S. Senate campaign to defeat Jeff Flake

Dr. Kelli Ward, candidate for U.S. Senate Arizona.

TEMPE, Ariz /PRNewswire/ — Today the Ward for Senate campaign has announced that the founder and top operative of the largest Super PAC supporting the President in 2016, Great America PAC, have joined the campaign.  Eric Beach was founder and co-chair and Brent Lowder served as Executive Director of Great America PAC, which raised and spent nearly $30 million in support of President Trump’s candidacy in 2016.  The two respected operatives will help lead Kelli Ward’s campaign to defeat Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona in 2018.

“Eric and Brent are highly accomplished political operatives with strong track records of success.  They played an important role in the election of President Trump and are now committed to helping me to send Jeff Flake into retirement next year,” said Ward.  “We are excited to have them join the team and know they will have an immediate positive impact on our campaign.”

Kelli Ward is a strong, thoughtful leader and will be a hardworking, dedicated Senator in Washington that all Arizonans can be proud of,” said Beach.  “Senator Jeff Flake has continually failed Arizona and is more interested in selling his new book by attacking the President than actually serving his constituents and getting things done.  Arizona deserves far better from their Senator.”

Google’s Blacklist: Destroying careers because of different political beliefs

Ironically, in the beginning, Google’s slogan, their tagline, was “don’t be evil.” They quietly retired that slogan — leftists don’t believe in good or evil — and switched it up to, “Do the right thing.”  You can’t make this stuff up.

The motto, “don’t be evil.” was first suggested either by Google employee Paul Buchheit at a meeting about corporate values that took place in early 2000 or in 2001….Buchheit, the creator of Gmail, said he “wanted something that, once you put it in there, would be hard to take out.” (here)

Orwellian, all of it.

For well over a decade, a handful of us have been warning of the dangerous consequences of the bias by the ever growing, ever powerful Google. Of course, we were called conspiracy theorists and tinfoil yada yadas. There is conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact. Here’s the proof.

NUMEROUS INDIVIDUALS ALLEGED TO BE MEMBERS OF GOOGLE’S MANAGEMENT TEAM HAVE BEEN CAUGHT BRAGGING ABOUT FORMING BLACKLISTS TO IMPACT THE CAREERS OF COLLEAGUES WITH DIFFERENT POLITICAL BELIEFS.

In a series of screenshots from 2015 onwards provided to Breitbart News by a verified Google employee, individuals described as left-wing Google management employees can be seen discussing the ways they punish their colleagues both inside and out of the company.

August 7, 2017, By Charlie Nash, Breitbart (thanks to Todd):

“While Google appears to be doing very little to quell the hostile voices that exists inside the company, I want those hostile voices to know: I will never, ever hire hire/transfer you onto my team. Ever. I don’t care if you are perfect fit of technically excellent or whatever,” declared former employee Adam Fletcher in a post on Google’s internal, staff-only Google+ network: “Internal Plus.” “I will actively not work with you, even to the point where your team or product is impacted by this decision. I’ll communicate why to your manager if it comes up.”

“You’re being blacklisted by people at companies outside of Google,” he continued. “You might not have been aware of this, but people know, people talk. There are always social consequences.”

“One of the great things about Google’s internal communication mechanisms (G+, mailing lists, etc), is that, as a manager, I can easily go find out if I really want to work with you,” wrote another individual described on social media as a Google manager, Collin Winter. “I keep a written blacklist of people whom I will never allow on or near my team, based on how they view and treat their coworkers. That blacklist got a little longer today.”

In the comments, one Google employee can be seen asking, “Are such blacklists allowed at Google?” before another added, “I would talk to legal before assembling a list of people who are possibly creating a hostile workplace.”

“And now I know that if I ever sue Google for harassment I should demand to see all manager’s shit-lists to see if this was something management already knew and thus let happen (my tormentor could be on there and not dealt with). It would probably increase the settlement aware considerably,” he continued. “I would encourage anyone else getting mistreated at Google to do the same.”

This week, a Google employee’s ten-page document went viral, after he called for more ideological diversity at the company.

As reported by Breitbart Tech’s Allum Bokhari, “The Googler’s 10-page manifesto criticized the company for maintaining an atmosphere of political groupthink, in which employees with viewpoints that challenge leftist narratives are forced to keep their mouths shut for fear of losing their jobs. He also criticized Google for ignoring the latest research on gender differences and their interplay with the lack of women in STEM jobs.”

The employee’s manifesto quickly prompted extreme responses from left-wing users, including one SJW, Emily Gorcenski, who claimed she would “beat the sh*t out of him.”

Gorcenski frequently retweets and expresses support for It’s Going Down, an extremist far-left Antifa organization, who have previously doxed and harassed college students, and encouraged violence against Trump supporters.

Alon Altman, who according to social media posts is a senior software engineer at Google and who describeshimself as an “intersectional feminist” and uses “they/them/their” pronouns, was also seen in leaked screenshots urging Google management to fire employees who agreed with the anti-political correctness manifesto that was revealed this week.

In leaked screenshots, Altman added that should the employee behind the manifesto not be fired by the end of the month, he would hand in his resignation notice.

In another post, alleged Site Reliability Manager Paul Cowan warned to employees that “freedom of speech is the right to freely express an opinion. It is most assuredly not the right to express an opinion with freedom from the consequences.”

Cowan continued to reference a post from Google dissidents, who were discussing the blacklists being created by an “SJW cabal” at the company, before defending the concept of punishing anti-SJW employees.

“To be clear: this is, in my opinion, perfectly acceptable,” he declared. “Quoting this as if it were some egregious abuse of power, or of your rights, is laughable… My life, happiness, and mental health, are worth too much to me to burn my precious happy-fu working with people I find contemptible, unpleasant, or even in some cases merely irritating.”

After being warned that keeping blacklists could result in him being reported to Human Resources, Cowan then bragged on Twitter that they were “threats I ignored, naturally, and which ironically grew the list substantially.”

In older posts, Kim Burchett, a now ex-Google employee and Antifa supporter, also discussed blacklists in a post on Internal Plus.

“I am considering creating a public-inside-google document of ‘people who make diversity difficult’,” claimed Burchett. “I am thinking of something like google doc that accepts comments, and which calls out those googlers who repeatedly made public statements that are unsupportive of diversity, with links to those statements so that readers can decide for themselves.”

On Burchett’s alleged Twitter account, she displays the Antifa logo as her profile picture, and follows numerous Antifa accounts, including It’s Going Down.

More from James Damore: GOOGLE’S IDEOLOGICAL ECHO CHAMBER

google-enemy-of-the-people[This is the full ten-page internal memo to fellow employees attacking Google’s politically correct monoculture, written by Google engineer James Damore – whose facts and assertions were proven excruciatingly correct by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who fired Damore last night (8/07) for “advancing harmful gender stereotypes.”

TTP encourages you to read it entire.  It outraged Google’s fascist Social Justice Warriors, to whom Pichai instantly succumbed.  The SJW Code of Conduct has three rules:  Always lie, always project, always double down.  All three are evidenced by Google’s firing Damore for brilliantly and courageously speaking truth to power.

I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes.

When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem.

Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber.

Despite what the public response seems to have been, I’ve gotten many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude for bringing up these very important issues which they agree with but would never have the courage to say or defend because of our shaming culture and the possibility of being fired. This needs to change.

TL:DR

  • Google’s political bias has equated the freedom from offense with psychological safety, but shaming into silence is the antithesis of psychological safety.
  • This silencing has created an ideological echo chamber where some ideas are too sacred to be honestly discussed.
  • The lack of discussion fosters the most extreme and authoritarian elements of this ideology.
  • Extreme: all disparities in representation are due to oppression
  • Authoritarian: we should discriminate to correct for this oppression
  • Differences in distributions of traits between men and women may in part explain why we don’t have 50% representation of women in tech and leadership. Discrimination to reach equal representation is unfair, divisive, and bad for business.

Background [1]

People generally have good intentions, but we all have biases which are invisible to us. Thankfully, open and honest discussion with those who disagree can highlight our blind spots and help us grow, which is why I wrote this document.[2[2]p>

Google has several biases and honest discussion about these biases is being silenced by the dominant ideology. What follows is by no means the complete story, but it’s a perspective that desperately needs to be told at Google.

Google’s biases

At Google, we talk so much about unconscious bias as it applies to race and gender, but we rarely discuss our moral biases. Political orientation is actually a result of deep moral preferences and thus biases. Considering that the overwhelming majority of the social sciences, media, and Google lean left, we should critically examine these prejudices.

Left Biases

  • Compassion for the weak
  • Disparities are due to injustices
  • Humans are inherently cooperative
  • Change is good (unstable)
  • Open
  • Idealist

Right Biases

  • Respect for the strong/authority
  • Disparities are natural and just
  • Humans are inherently competitive
  • Change is dangerous (stable)
  • Closed
  • Pragmatic

Neither side is 100% correct and both viewpoints are necessary for a functioning society or, in this case, company. A company too far to the right may be slow to react, overly hierarchical, and untrusting of others.

In contrast, a company too far to the left will constantly be changing (deprecating much loved services), over diversify its interests (ignoring or being ashamed of its core business), and overly trust its employees and competitors.

Only facts and reason can shed light on these biases, but when it comes to diversity and inclusion, Google’s left bias has created a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silenceThis silence removes any checks against encroaching extremist and authoritarian policies.

For the rest of this document, I’ll concentrate on the extreme stance that all differences in outcome are due to differential treatment and the authoritarian element that’s required to actually discriminate to create equal representation.

Possible non-bias causes of the gender gap in tech [3[3]strong>

At Google, we’re regularly told that implicit (unconscious) and explicit biases are holding women back in tech and leadership. Of course, men and women experience bias, tech, and the workplace differently and we should be cognizant of this, but it’s far from the whole story.

On average, men and women biologically differ in many ways. These differences aren’t just socially constructed because:

  • They’re universal across human cultures
  • They often have clear biological causes and links to prenatal testosterone
  • Biological males that were castrated at birth and raised as females often still identify and act like males
  • The underlying traits are highly heritable
  • They’re exactly what we would predict from an evolutionary psychology perspective

Note, I’m not saying that all men differ from women in the following ways or that these differences are “just.” I’m simply stating that the distribution of preferences and abilities of men and women differ in part due to biological causes and that these differences may explain why we don’t see equal representation of women in tech and leadership.

Many of these differences are small and there’s significant overlap between men and women, so you can’t say anything about an individual given these population level distributions.

Personality differences

Women, on average, have more:

  • Openness directed towards feelings and aesthetics rather than ideas. Women generally also have a stronger interest in people rather than things, relative to men (also interpreted as empathizing vs. systemizing).
  • These two differences in part explain why women relatively prefer jobs in social or artistic areas. More men may like coding because it requires systemizing and even within SWEs, comparatively more women work on front end, which deals with both people and aesthetics.
  • Extraversion expressed as gregariousness rather than assertiveness. Also, higher agreeableness.
  • This leads to women generally having a harder time negotiating salary, asking for raises, speaking up, and leading. Note that these are just average differences and there’s overlap between men and women, but this is seen solely as a women’s issue. This leads to exclusory programs like Stretch and swaths of men without support.
  • Neuroticism (higher anxiety, lower stress tolerance).This may contribute to the higher levels of anxiety women report on Googlegeist and to the lower number of women in high stress jobs.

Note that contrary to what a social constructionist would argue, research suggests that “greater nation-level gender equality leads to psychological dissimilarity in men’s and women’s personality traits.”

Because as “society becomes more prosperous and more egalitarian, innate dispositional differences between men and women have more space to develop and the gap that exists between men and women in their personality becomes wider.” We need to stop assuming that gender gaps imply sexism.

Men’s higher drive for status

We always ask why we don’t see women in top leadership positions, but we never ask why we see so many men in these jobs. These positions often require long, stressful hours that may not be worth it if you want a balanced and fulfilling life.

Status is the primary metric that men are judged on[4[4]pushing many men into these higher paying, less satisfying jobs for the status that they entail. Note, the same forces that lead men into high pay/high stress jobs in tech and leadership cause men to take undesirable and dangerous jobs like coal mining, garbage collection, and firefighting, and suffer 93% of work-related deaths.

Non-discriminatory ways to reduce the gender gap

Below I’ll go over some of the differences in distribution of traits between men and women that I outlined in the previous section and suggest ways to address them to increase women’s representation in tech and without resorting to discrimination. Google is already making strides in many of these areas, but I think it’s still instructive to list them:

  • Women on average show a higher interest in people and men in things
  • We can make software engineering more people-oriented with pair programming and more collaboration. Unfortunately, there may be limits to how people-oriented certain roles and Google can be and we shouldn’t deceive ourselves or students into thinking otherwise (some of our programs to get female students into coding might be doing this).
  • Women on average are more cooperative
  • Allow those exhibiting cooperative behavior to thrive. Recent updates to Perf may be doing this to an extent, but maybe there’s more we can do. This doesn’t mean that we should remove all competitiveness from Google. Competitiveness and self reliance can be valuable traits and we shouldn’t necessarily disadvantage those that have them, like what’s been done in education. Women on average are more prone to anxiety. Make tech and leadership less stressful. Google already partly does this with its many stress reduction courses and benefits.
  • Women on average look for more work-life balance while men have a higher drive for status on average
  • Unfortunately, as long as tech and leadership remain high status, lucrative careers, men may disproportionately want to be in them. Allowing and truly endorsing (as part of our culture) part time work though can keep more women in tech.
  • The male gender role is currently inflexible
  • Feminism has made great progress in freeing women from the female gender role, but men are still very much tied to the male gender role. If we, as a society, allow men to be more “feminine,” then the gender gap will shrink, although probably because men will leave tech and leadership for traditionally feminine roles.

Philosophically, I don’t think we should do arbitrary social engineering of tech just to make it appealing to equal portions of both men and women. For each of these changes, we need principles, reasons for why it helps Google; that is, we should be optimizing for Google—with Google’s diversity being a component of that.

For example currently those trying to work extra hours or take extra stress will inevitably get ahead and if we try to change that too much, it may have disastrous consequences. Also, when considering the costs and benefits, we should keep in mind that Google’s funding is finite so its allocation is more zero-sum than is generally acknowledged.

The Harm of Google’s biases

I strongly believe in gender and racial diversity, and I think we should strive for more. However, to achieve a more equal gender and race representation, Google has created several discriminatory practices:

  • Programs, mentoring, and classes only for people with a certain gender or race [5[5]li>
  • A high priority queue and special treatment for “diversity” candidates
  • Hiring practices which can effectively lower the bar for “diversity” candidates by decreasing the false negative rate
  • Reconsidering any set of people if it’s not “diverse” enough, but not showing that same scrutiny in the reverse direction (clear confirmation bias)
  • Setting org level OKRs for increased representation which can incentivize illegal discrimination [6[6]li>

These practices are based on false assumptions generated by our biases and can actually increase race and gender tensions. We’re told by senior leadership that what we’re doing is both the morally and economically correct thing to do, but without evidence this is just veiled left ideology[7[7]hat can irreparably harm Google.

 Why we’re blind

We all have biases and use motivated reasoning to dismiss ideas that run counter to our internal values. Just as some on the Right deny science that runs counter to the “God > humans > environment” hierarchy (e.g., evolution and climate change) the Left tends to deny science concerning biological differences between people (e.g., IQ[8[8]nd sex differences).

Thankfully, climate scientists and evolutionary biologists generally aren’t on the right. Unfortunately, the overwhelming majority of humanities and social scientists learn left (about 95%), which creates enormous confirmation bias, changes what’s being studied, and maintains myths like social constructionism and the gender wage gap[9[9]/p>

Google’s left leaning makes us blind to this bias and uncritical of its results, which we’re using to justify highly politicized programs.

In addition to the Left’s affinity for those it sees as weak, humans are generally biased towards protecting females. As mentioned before, this likely evolved because males are biologically disposable and because women are generally more cooperative and agreeable than men.

We have extensive government and Google programs, fields of study, and legal and social norms to protect women, but when a man complains about a gender issue affecting men, he’s labeled as a misogynist and whiner[1[10]/p>

Nearly every difference between men and women is interpreted as a form of women’s oppression. As with many things in life, gender differences are often a case of “grass being greener on the other side”; unfortunately, taxpayer and Google money is spent to water only one side of the lawn.

The same compassion for those seen as weak creates political correctness[1[11]which constrains discourse and is complacent to the extremely sensitive PC-authoritarians that use violence and shaming to advance their cause. While Google hasn’t harbored the violent leftists protests that we’re seeing at universities, the frequent shaming in TGIF and in our culture has created the same silence, psychologically unsafe environment.

Suggestions

I hope it’s clear that I’m not saying that diversity is bad, that Google or society is 100% fair, that we shouldn’t try to correct for existing biases, or that minorities have the same experience of those in the majority.

My larger point is that we have an intolerance for ideas and evidence that don’t fit a certain ideology. I’m also not saying that we should restrict people to certain gender roles; I’m advocating for quite the opposite: treat people as individuals, not as just another member of their group (tribalism).

My concrete suggestions are to:

De-moralize diversity.

  • As soon as we start to moralize an issue, we stop thinking about it in terms of costs and benefits, dismiss anyone that disagrees as immoral, and harshly punish those we see as villains to protect the “victims.”

Stop alienating conservatives.

  • Viewpoint diversity is arguably the most important type of diversity and political orientation is one of the most fundamental and significant ways in which people view things differently.
  • In highly progressive environments, conservatives are a minority that feel like they need to stay in the closet to avoid open hostility. We should empower those with different ideologies to be able to express themselves.
  • Alienating conservatives is both non-inclusive and generally bad business because conservatives tend to be higher in conscientiousness, which is require for much of the drudgery and maintenance work characteristic of a mature company.

Confront Google’s biases.

  • I’ve mostly concentrated on how our biases cloud our thinking about diversity and inclusion, but our moral biases are farther reaching than that.
  • I would start by breaking down Googlegeist scores by political orientation and personality to give a fuller picture into how our biases are affecting our culture.

Stop restricting programs and classes to certain genders or races.

  • These discriminatory practices are both unfair and divisive. Instead focus on some of the non-discriminatory practices I outlined.

Have an open and honest discussion about the costs and benefits of our diversity programs.

  • Discriminating just to increase the representation of women in tech is as misguided and biased as mandating increases for women’s representation in the homeless, work-related and violent deaths, prisons, and school dropouts.
  • There’s currently very little transparency into the extend of our diversity programs which keeps it immune to criticism from those outside its ideological echo chamber.
  • These programs are highly politicized which further alienates non-progressives.
  • I realize that some of our programs may be precautions against government accusations of discrimination, but that can easily backfire since they incentivize illegal discrimination.

Focus on psychological safety, not just race/gender diversity.

  • We should focus on psychological safety, which has shown positive effects and should (hopefully) not lead to unfair discrimination.
  • We need psychological safety and shared values to gain the benefits of diversity
  • Having representative viewpoints is important for those designing and testing our products, but the benefits are less clear for those more removed from UX.

De-emphasize empathy.

  • I’ve heard several calls for increased empathy on diversity issues. While I strongly support trying to understand how and why people think the way they do, relying on affective empathy—feeling another’s pain—causes us to focus on anecdotes, favor individuals similar to us, and harbor other irrational and dangerous biases. Being emotionally unengaged helps us better reason about the facts.

Prioritize intention.

  • Our focus on microaggressions and other unintentional transgressions increases our sensitivity, which is not universally positive: sensitivity increases both our tendency to take offense and our self censorship, leading to authoritarian policies. Speaking up without the fear of being harshly judged is central to psychological safety, but these practices can remove that safety by judging unintentional transgressions.
  • Microaggression training incorrectly and dangerously equates speech with violence and isn’t backed by evidence.

Be open about the science of human nature.

  • Once we acknowledge that not all differences are socially constructed or due to discrimination, we open our eyes to a more accurate view of the human condition which is necessary if we actually want to solve problems.

Reconsider making Unconscious Bias training mandatory for promo committees.

  • We haven’t been able to measure any effect of our Unconscious Bias training and it has the potential for overcorrecting or backlash, especially if made mandatory.
  • Some of the suggested methods of the current training (v2.3) are likely useful, but the political bias of the presentation is clear from the factual inaccuracies and the examples shown.
  • Spend more time on the many other types of biases besides stereotypes. Stereotypes are much more accurate and responsive to new information than the training suggests (I’m not advocating for using stereotypes, I’m just pointing out the factual inaccuracy of what’s said in the training).

 Notes:

[1[1]his document is mostly written from the perspective of Google’s Mountain View campus, I can’t speak about other offices or countries.

[2[2]f course, I may be biased and only see evidence that supports my viewpoint. In terms of political biases, I consider myself a classical liberal and strongly value individualism and reason. I’d be very happy to discuss any of the document further and provide more citations.

[3[3]hroughout the document, by “tech”, I mostly mean software engineering.

[4[4]or heterosexual romantic relationships, men are more strongly judged by status and women by beauty. Again, this has biological origins and is culturally universal.

[5[5]tretch, BOLD, CSSI, Engineering Practicum (to an extent), and several other Google funded internal and external programs are for people with a certain gender or race.

[6[6]nstead set Googlegeist OKRs, potentially for certain demographics. We can increase representation at an org level by either making it a better environment for certain groups (which would be seen in survey scores) or discriminating based on a protected status (which is illegal and I’ve seen it done). Increased representation OKRs can incentivize the latter and create zero-sum struggles between orgs.

[7[7]ommunism promised to be both morally and economically superior to capitalism, but every attempt became morally corrupt and an economic failure. As it became clear that the working class of the liberal democracies wasn’t going to overthrow their “capitalist oppressors,” the Marxist intellectuals transitioned from class warfare to gender and race politics. The core oppressor-oppressed dynamics remained, but now the oppressor is the “white, straight, cis-gendered patriarchy.”

[8[8]ronically, IQ tests were initially championed by the Left when meritocracy meant helping the victims of the aristocracy.

[9[9]es, in a national aggregate, women have lower salaries than men for a variety of reasons. For the same work though, women get paid just as much as men. Considering women spend more money than men and that salary represents how much the employees sacrifices (e.g. more hours, stress, and danger), we really need to rethink our stereotypes around power.

[1[10]The traditionalist system of gender does not deal well with the idea of men needing support. Men are expected to be strong, to not complain, and to deal with problems on their own. Men’s problems are more often seen as personal failings rather than victimhood,, due to our gendered idea of agency. This discourages men from bringing attention to their issues (whether individual or group-wide issues), for fear of being seen as whiners, complainers, or weak.”

[1[11]olitical correctness is defined as “the avoidance of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against,” which makes it clear why it’s a phenomenon of the Left and a tool of authoritarians.
