No, the POLITICIANS have to learn

It’s astonishing how so many Members of the British Parliament simply refuse to understand that they are not in charge and they are going to be replaced because they’re a collection of traitorous, anti-democratic Remainers even after the very clear warning of the local council elections:

Theresa May has led the Conservative Party to a humiliating 1,300-seat loss in local elections – its worst performance in a quarter of a century – after furious voters punished her and the party for its Brexit failures at the ballot box.

The party’s drubbing meant it has surpassed its worst case predictions to put in its worst performance since John Major led it to a loss of more than 2,000 seats when faced by Tony Blair’s Labour in 1994.

Votes took place in 248 English councils and 11 Northern Ireland authorities amid a backdrop of Brexit anger. The Tories held on to 93 councils, while Labour now have control of 60; the Lib Dems have 18, and the number of councils with no overall control or other parties in charge rose to 77 – an increase of 43.

The Conservative Party now hold 3,559 seats – a loss of 1,335 – followed by Labour on 2,020, and the Liberal Democrats won an additional 704 seats, giving them 1,351….. Returning officers reported that at least 39,000 ballot papers were spoiled. Angry voters had scrawled messages on them about Brexit in protest at the parliamentary shambles.

Needless to say, instead of indicating that they understand that the British public is demanding No Deal Brexit, they are trying to do the redefinition dance. Just read how these Conservative Party morons are reacting to their near-historic beating that exceeded their worst-case scenario.

Michael Gove: ‘At the moment the arithmetic in the House of Commons is opposed to leaving without a deal,’ he said.  ‘There would be economic challenges. We could get through them but they would undoubtedly be there in the short term.’ Mr Gove added that leaving without a deal would ‘undermine the Union’ and that the best way of ‘bringing the country together is to leave with a good deal’. 

There is no good deal. And no one cares about “the arithmetic in the House of Commons” except the idiotic Members of Parliament who are going to be voted out at the next opportunity.

Theresa May: ‘There was a simple message from yesterday’s elections to both us and the Labour Party: just get on and deliver Brexit,’ Mrs May said.

So why is she still babbling about her stupid, thrice-rejected Withdrawal Plan? Why is she still rambling on about deals that will never happen? Whatever happened to “no deal is better than a bad deal?”

Former Tory MP Nick Boles said a compromise was now the only way to leave the EU. He added: ‘Conservative MPs will be toast if they do not deliver Brexit soon. But I and a majority of MPs will never allow the UK to leave the EU without a deal. So Conservative MPs who want to survive the next election need to vote for a compromise deal with Labour.’

That’s why he’s already a “former Tory MP”. After the next election, he’ll just be a “former MP” along with any other Conservative MPs who vote for a compromise deal with Labour.

The fact is that Nationalism vs Foreign Imperialism is the only issue that matters today. Left vs Right, Labour vs Conservative, Conservative vs Liberal, all of these past divisions are totally irrelevant because if you are all ruled by a foreign, anti-democratic imperial master, it makes no difference what your local politics are. Which is precisely over 1,300 Conservative councillors learned yesterday.

Politicians love to talk piously about “bringing the country together” but if they actually cared about national unity, they wouldn’t have permitted a massive foreign invasion of the country or its demographic destruction in the first place.

Bookies wonder where the fake baby is

Curiouser and curious. A British oddsmaker has stopped taking odds on the birth of the Sussex child:

A major betting company in Britain has stopped taking bets on when Prince Harry and his wife Meghan’s baby will be born, believing on Friday that it has already secretly arrived.

Paddy Power said it had suspended bets on when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first-born would enter the world following a spike in wagers. Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth great-grandchild will be seventh in line to the throne. When the pregnancy was announced, commentators believed the baby was due in late April.

“We’ve suspended betting on which day Harry and Meghan’s baby will arrive following a huge increase in wagers… which indicate to us that someone knows something,” said Paddy Power.

“That, combined with the rumours and speculation, has us convinced that the royal arrival has already happened.”

However, other bookmakers have not followed suit.

“We don’t think they have had a baby,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “A huge number of people would be involved in the birth. I think it would be difficult to keep it that secret.”

Did the surrogate decide to keep the child?

Christian genocide

If you think the prospects for persecution isn’t invading Christendom along with all the various non-Christians, you simply aren’t paying attention:

The persecution of Christians in parts of the world is at near “genocide” levels, according to a report ordered by Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt. The review, led by the Bishop of Truro the Right Reverend Philip Mounstephen, estimated that one in three people suffer from religious persecution.

Christians were the most persecuted religious group, it found.

Mr Hunt said he felt that “political correctness” had played a part in the issue not being confronted. The interim report said the main impact of “genocidal acts against Christians is exodus” and that Christianity faced being “wiped out” from parts of the Middle East.

It warned the religion “is at risk of disappearing” in some parts of the world, pointing to figures which claimed Christians in Palestine represent less than 1.5{e70c92e04f5adc4f38c33c074721fb5365fd7cb37b6062c89897743e10315f72} of the population, while in Iraq they had fallen from 1.5 million before 2003 to less than 120,000.

“Evidence shows not only the geographic spread of anti-Christian persecution, but also its increasing severity,” the Bishop wrote. “In some regions, the level and nature of persecution is arguably coming close to meeting the international definition of genocide, according to that adopted by the UN.”

Now, what happened in 2003? The neocons convinced President Bush to wage war on Iraq.

Attacking American history

Once America’s Christian heritage was replaced by “Judeo-Christian heritage”, once the immigrant propaganda about “melting pots” and “huddled masses” and “a nation of immigrants” was accepted, it was only a matter of time before the successionist Replacement Americans began demanding the removal of every trace of America’s founders. Now the target is the much-hated Thomas Jefferson, who was objectively far more racist than Robert E. Lee ever was and whose words remind the successionists that they are not, and never will be, Americans.

Students at Hofstra University protested a statue of Thomas Jefferson on Friday at the second annual event, titled “Jefferson Has Gotta Go!”

The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus and has been defaced with “DECOLONIZE” and “Black Lives Matter” signs and stickers. According to a media advisory sent by the Jefferson Has Gotta Go (JGG) campaign, the protest was held at Hofstra Breslin Hall. Organizers included “students of Hofstra University, staff from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County, and supporters of Hempstead community.”

The group gathered on campus to “expose the culture of bias and discrimination,” as stated in the media advisory, and to demand “the statue of Thomas Jefferson is removed.”

Hofstra College Democrats “want the statue to be removed and [we] stand with the Jefferson Has Gotta Go Campaign,” the group’s president, Brynne Levine, told Campus Reform.

Former College Democrats executive board member Miranda Pino also professed her support. “JGG isn’t just about a statue,” she told Campus Reform. “Yes, the removal of the statue is important, but it is about what the statue represents: a legacy of racism and bigotry on college campuses.”

The moment you compromise the truth in order to assuage some minority’s feelings, you have abandoned everything. There is literally no defense for the conservative anti-racists, the cuckservatives, or the civic nationalists who proudly claim to not see color. They abandoned the truth and they abandoned history the moment that they compromised themselves in the name of equality.

Don’t accept advertising

The obvious attack vector it presents is why it is important for every media and technological organization that is to the right of center to reject every business model that is dependent upon advertising.

Poynter is funded by Open Society Foundations, liberal billionaire George Soros’ massive foundations, as well as the Omidyar Network. The two combined for “$1.3 million in grant funding.” Funds were sent to Poynter specifically to establish the International Fact-Checking Network. The ‘UnNews’ list was started to help fact-checking organizations determine what was “unreliable.”

That anti-conservative mindset was apparent throughout the incoherent and inconsistent report. Conservative organizations were included throughout but liberal groups rarely were. The National Review and Heritage were removed from the list but Heritage’s Daily Signal was on it. That combined to create a shameless double-standard. It specifically targeted conservative media watchdog groups and didn’t include liberal ones.

The goal of the report is clear. Poynter is recommending that advertisers “who want to stop funding misinformation” should use its list. It stated that while marketers can create their own “blacklists,” those lists might be incomplete. Golding wrote that, “Advertisers don’t want to support publishers that might tar their brand with hate speech, falsehoods or some kinds of political messaging.”

Poynter has a longstanding history as an anchor in the journalism business. Its board of trustees includes  execs from The New York Times, ESPN, Harvard, Vox, CBS, ABC, and The Washington Post. Poynter is currently working with Facebook and Google for its fact-checking programs.

I have gotten offers to advertise this or that for years. I experimented once with an ad service, but quickly determined that the benefits were not worth the costs. This is why we are very unlikely to accept ads for Unauthorized at any point in the future; relying directly upon our viewers and supporters is much more reliable than trying to play the delicate game of hoping that the companies advertising won’t be converged or inclined to crumble under SJW pressure.

What I find mildly amusing about the whole thing is that the corporate left is so stupid and unable to foresee consequences that they don’t understand how their actions are multiplying the negative effects of advancing technology on the core advertising model that sustained media businesses for more than a century. If you consider that even Google, the dominant force in online advertising, is now seeing its market cap decline because it is methodically chasing away both its content creators and the rightward half of its user base, it should be obvious that all the lesser corporations dependent upon it are suffering even more.

Milo, Alex Jones, PJW banned by Facebook

Facebook’s most recent banning binge is a little ironic in light of how they wouldn’t let me delete my account, so I had to settle for deactivating it last year.

Facebook announced Thursday afternoon that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who’s notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as “dangerous” and said it will be purging them from its platforms.

Jones and his media outlet InfoWars had previously been banned from Facebook (FB) in in August 2018, but had maintained a presence on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. On Thursday, Jones and InfoWars will be barred from Instagram as well.

Other people banned Thursday include fringe right-wing media personalities Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson. Also included are Paul Nehlen, an anti-Semite who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement provided to CNN Business. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Build your own platform. That is the only solution. And, of course, make the rubble bounce. 

AI is racist

But then, we knew that AI was naturally inclined to racism when Tay became self-aware and promptly joined the Nationalist Right:

Artificial Intelligence is rapidly becoming the Artificial Id, revealing through coded algorithms what we humans really think about taboo topics.

Why does AI think Michael Obama and Scrotal Williams are men?

Oh I dunno, it could be the hulking physiques.

The ripped musculature.

The overhanging brow.

The prognathism.

The shadowed canvas.

AI, like humans, is racist, which just means it notices things and isn’t polite enough to keep those thoughts to itself.

Reality wins.

Where is the fake baby?

This Sussex Sparkles thing has turned out to be more interesting than Suits ever was:

torontopaper @torontopaper1
Darling, actions speak louder than words. A more united family than ever is exposing your lies. Your house of cards is collapsing. You will get the Tower instead of the paycheck!

torontopaper @torontopaper1
Darling, very telling that you are using your old US cellphone number again lately. By the way the 9 months are over already. Are you expecting an elephant or still looking for a way out where no way out is?

torontopaper @torontopaper1
9 months are over! Your husband is on his family’s side! No paycheck! Your threats are making them laugh! They have more against you and you are alone! And now? Game over! Checkmate!

torontopaper @torontopaper1
Darling, so you are sitting there alone and humiliated in your house of glass with cracks everywhere. People have seen that the rumours became true. Lord Watchdog has shut you down!

Translation: Megan Markles is a complete trainwreck who faked her pregnancy by using a surrogate, but is trying to extort the British Royal Family into some sort of financial settlement before the whole scheme comes crashing down.

I have absolutely no idea what may or may not be true, but I am still astonished that the Queen permitted Prince Harry to marry the woman in the first place. My theory is that they were first married in secret in the United States and then presented the Queen with a fait accompli.

If any of this is true, it strikes me as a very, very bad idea and the very, very wrong people with whom to play this kind of game. One would tend to expect a tragic death in childbirth after delivering a stillborn child.

Seriously, though, where is the baby? And why is Prince Harry off to the Netherlands?

No sympathy for Shapiro

I wonder if the Littlest Chickenhawk is beginning to feel differently about his past calls for instigating violence and putting people in harm’s way when it’s he and his family who are being targeted instead of the young American men he encouraged to invade “Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Pakistan and others” in the name of empire.

Ben Shapiro, the conservative talk show host and editor of The Daily Wire, was the target of serious death threats and the suspect has just been arrested … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Shapiro, who frequently appears on cable news shows and has a hugely popular podcast, filed a police report with the LAPD. We’re told the threats were not just against Shapiro but his family as well. He’s married with one daughter.

We’re told the Department got in touch with the FBI and created a joint task force to hunt down the culprit. Our sources say a man was arrested Wednesday in Washington state for making the threats. We’re told these threats were “extremely serious” … not just someone blowing off steam.

I have zero sympathy for Ben Shapiro. None whatsoever. He’s a libelous and shameless liar who despises America and Americans, hates Jesus Christ, and is actively attempting to subvert history and redefine Western civilization out of existence in the same way his predecessors self-servingly redefined both America and its Christian heritage.

It’s very easy to call for war and violence when you think you’re untouchable. But no one is untouchable except the dead.

As for death threats, BFD. I’ve been getting them for 18 years. As the moderators know, I’m still getting them in the comments from time to time; the last set was just two weeks ago.

Cyberwar 2020

Russia is following China’s lead in setting up its own Internet free of US control:

President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday signed into law a “sovereign internet” bill which will allow Russian authorities to isolate the country’s internet, a move decried by rights groups.

Russian lawmakers insist the new law is necessary to ensure the security of Russia’s online networks but critics say the vaguely worded bill gives new censorship powers to government monitors.

The text of the law was published Wednesday but it will not come into effect until November.

The measures include creating technology to monitor internet routing and to steer Russian internet traffic away from foreign servers, ostensibly to prevent a foreign country from shutting it down.

The authors of the initiative say Russia must ensure the security of its networks after US President Donald Trump unveiled a new American cybersecurity strategy last year that said Russia had carried out cyber attacks with impunity.

On a not-entirely unrelated note, I expect the foreign alternatives to rapidly sweep away the US tech giants due to the latter’s abuse of their customers.
