The charade of “success”

Anonymous Conservative reminds us that most of what passes for “success” in modern American society is entirely manufactured and most claims to it being based on “talent” and “hard work” are entirely false.

Joe Biden forgets his line, and a reporter jumps in to help him remember it. All those reporter positions are remarkably important in so many ways. Now, I almost think it funny that if you had asked me as a kid, “Could you grow up to be a reporter if you wanted?” I would have replied, “This is America, I can grow up to be anything if I put in the effort.” And I would have thought that becoming a reporter was half-assing it, and it would have been impossible to fail. 

In truth, there were a lot of doors which were always closed, because there was a giant secret out there which the conspiracy needed to hide. Utility line worker, data-processor or IT guy, especially in certain banks, hotel/motel owner in areas of importance, taxi drivers, reporters, celebrities of all stripes, scientific researchers in certain fields, lawyers, prosecutors and politicians at all levels, CIA Officers, and a ton of other positions were for club members only, or people the club felt they could control. I will bet if you tried to be a bum loitering on certain street corners, you’d get chased off, and think it was just another bum chasing you off. Or you’d have a job fall in your lap and think it good luck, instead of the reality that was a vital posted surveillance position, and the bum there needed to be (((their))) bum. 

I always thought it bizarre Erik Prince walked into the CIA, fresh out of the Navy SEALs, heir to a billionaire fortune, as comfortable in a high-society soiree at a five-star restaurant as he would be hip deep in mud somewhere getting shot at, high IQ and full of piss and vinegar, and CIA told him he didn’t have what it took. The guy who built an entire shadow CIA/Pentagon from scratch all on his own, tearing shit up across the entire globe, maybe with a hand in tearing down the Cabal, didn’t have what it took to be a case officer, or a paramilitary? 

All throughout the country, people were moving into their final positions in life, doors opening, others closing due to the vagaries of fate (or so they thought), blind to a machine that was all around them, amassing files on them from the time they were children with reports from the other little kids in the school around them, watching them, looking to compromise them, and having failed, expending its effort thwarting them or moving them somewhere else. 

How many good young kids, filled with ability, effort, and determination, had a dream like being an actor, or a writer, or a reporter, and they ended up expending their entire life on the dream, betting everything on themselves, and died baffled at how they ended up failing while surrounded by untalented rubes who soared?  

Amy Schumer wasn’t paid $13 million for a single comedy special because she is funny or because she sells massive quantities of tickets to her shows. Megan Markle wasn’t paid $145 million to produce documentaries because she has an amazing production record or even because anyone will watch them. Obama hasn’t even begun writing the book for which he was paid a $65 million advance and he will probably never write it. Tom Preston wasn’t paid $100 million for making MySpace a lasting corporate success. Marc Racicot wasn’t made Chairman of the Republican National Committee or the Governor of Montana because he was such a staunch Republican or particularly adept at managing political operations.

On a much smaller scale, John Scalzi wasn’t paid $250,000 per book by Tor Books because Tor expects to make at least $10 million of profit on the deal. These are all people who are owned by the Prometheans, who have sold their souls for what passes for “success” and who will dutifully say whatever they are told to say and produce whatever they are told to produce. And in most cases, it’s not even necessary to tell them anything at all, as they were selected and propped up and promoted because they are naturally inclined to do their masters’ bidding.

Years ago, I was told by the editor of the editorial page for the St. Paul Pioneer Press that I would NEVER be permitted to have a regular column on the op/ed page. I applied for the slot after the token conservative left the paper, thinking that because I was a) already a popular weekly columnist on the Technology page, b) a local who grew up in a St. Paul suburb, and, c) only the sixth columnist in the 150-year history of the paper to be nationally syndicated, I was an obvious shoe-in for the job. 

I wrote three sample columns, which the editor freely admitted were of sufficient quality to appear on the page. But he made it clear that I would not be given the slot, not then and not in the future. At the time, I thought this was because my libertarianism was simply too intense for the paper. But now I understand that I had bumped up against the ceiling of what had been deemed my permissible level of success. After all, put a bright young, nationally-syndicated writer on the editorial page at the age of 25, he’s probably the obvious candidate for op/ed editor within a decade. And who knows where he might go after that? Best to shunt him off the track at the start. I didn’t mind then and I don’t mind now. I was still able to go off and do what I really wanted to do, which was to make computer games with my friends. But the situation always struck me as a little bit strange and somewhat inexplicable.

The vacant slot was instead given to DJ Tice, a nominal conservative who left the paper in 2003 to become the Government and Politics team leader at the Star Tribune and now plays the role of house conservative as the Commentary editor there. Are you even remotely surprised to learn that Tice is now anti-Trump and last year described Robert Mueller as “evidence of what truly makes America great”?

Talent will always find a way to some level of success, but it can be prevented from finding its way to the positions that are deemed strategically important. That’s why they hate and fear Donald Trump. As a rich, playboy developer, he’s essentially harmless to them. As President of the United States of America, not so much.

The media endangers itself

Journalists no longer should be afforded any protection, because journalists are not neutral observers. As they have chosen their side, they should be treated like the enemies of law and order that they are. As the primary enforcers of “hate speech”, they have no justification to hide their actions behind “freedom” or “free speech”.

“I remember this guy Velshi,” Trump said. “He got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas, and he went down. He was down. ‘My knee, my knee.’ Nobody cared, these guys didn’t care, they moved him aside. And they just walked right through. It was the most beautiful thing,” Trump said. “No, because after we take all that crap for weeks and weeks, and you finally see men get up there and go right through them, wasn’t it really a beautiful sight? It’s called law and order.”

In a statement, MSNBC responded to Trump’s taunt, accusing him of encouraging violence towards the press. 

“Freedom of the press is a pillar of our democracy. When the President mocks a journalist for the injury he sustained while putting himself in harm’s way to inform the public, he endangers thousands of other journalists and undermines our freedoms.”

First, the USA is not a democracy. Second, the press has already undermined those freedoms. They don’t deserve any protection at all. They deserve prosecution. 

Don’t talk to the media, part CXIV

 Clay Travis learns why you don’t talk to the media, even if you own a media company yourself:

It’s important to note what is going on here.

1. The Washington Post published a dishonest and factually incorrect article about me.

2. When I published the actual transcript of their questions and my responses to those questions the paper changed an inaccurate quote and made a notation at the bottom of an online article that almost no one would see.

3. No one at the paper reached out to acknowledge they’d misquoted me or to apologize for their error.

4. These mistakes were made even though I told the paper I was recording our interview and would publish the transcript if their article took my quotes out of context or incorrectly quoted me.

5. The only reason any of you even know this error occurred — or about how dishonest and untrue the piece they wrote was — is because I own my own media company and can demonstrate all the dishonesty in their work by publishing a transcript and response on this site.

Put simply, the paper, which allegedly prides itself on journalistic accuracy, mischaracterized and misconstrued everything I said to them and even though they only used 94 words from me, they couldn’t even correctly quote what I said and publish it in their article.

What’s more, when they were caught publishing factually incorrect information, they made a quiet alteration and refused to even notify the person they wrote about, me, that they’d corrected the error.

If this happened in a relatively inconsequential article about me, how often does it happen in more consequential articles about people much more significant than me?

Well, I am appalled. I am aghast. Who would ever have anticipated that the media would utilize an interview for a hit piece? Notice that the reporter interviewed him for more than an hour. At 28 single-space pages, the transcript probably amounted to over 7,500 words, most of which would have been his. And from all that, they used 94 of his own words in the subsequent hit piece that proved to be factually inaccurate.

Smart Boys, please notice that Travis followed your very clever advice to tell the reporter that he was recording the interview, as well as the fact that doing so made absolutely no difference at all even though his microphone at Outkick is a lot closer to the size of the Washington Post’s than yours or mine. 

Don’t. Talk. To. The. Media.

But if you want to show everyone how very important you are, just tell the reporter to feel free to email you the questions, then post them on your site, unanswered or not as you prefer, without emailing them back. They will quickly learn to stop contacting you.

We ARE being lied to

The global media’s anti-Q campaign is doomed to fail because, at its most basic core, Q is obviously telling the truth, or at least considerably more truth than the media or the Big Tech Cartel permit. There is a vast globalist conspiracy, although it is so open and documented and observable that it barely qualifies for the name of “conspiracy”. That globalist conspiracy is anti-Christian, anti-Western civilization, anti-American, and anti-Trump. There are elements of the conspiracy that are confirmed to prey upon children. And the deeper elements of the conspiracy do appear to subscribe to religious beliefs that can be reasonably described as Satanist or Luciferian.

The QAnon movement is spreading around the world, turning an outlandish conspiracy theory revolving around President Trump into one of the nation’s most dangerous exports.

Flags and banners brandishing one of the conspiracy’s mottos — “WWG1WGA,” an acronym for “where we go one, we go all” — dotted the crowd at a rally against lockdowns in Germany last month.

And when Trump visited Japan in 2019, he was greeted by cardboard cutouts of the letter Q.

These aren’t just isolated instances either. Researchers have found large QAnon communities in more than 70 countries. 

The original conspiracy theory was tightly focused on an alleged cabal of deep state figures and Hollywood elites running child trafficking rings that Trump was working with the military to expose. But it has since evolved into a meta-conspiracy theory that pushes its anti-institution and anti-Semitic strains more explicitly.

Experts who spoke with The Hill about the theory’s spread said it has become worse because of the coronavirus, which itself is the subject of many conspiracy theories. This helped create a perfect storm fostering distrust in established government and public health institutions.

“Pandemics fuel a lot of questions and make people very skeptical, especially in cases when what we would consider to be credible and trustworthy institutions all of a sudden themselves don’t seem to have the right answers or are not aligned on how to manage the situation,” Anna-Sophie Harling, head of media evaluation startup NewsGuard’s Europe team, said in an interview.

“Conspiracies are rooted in the idea that we’re all being lied to by some greater authority or voice and QAnon perfectly ties into that.”

So, ask yourself this question. If “the QAnon movement” is dangerous, to whom is it dangerous? And if it is dangerous to the enemies of Jesus Christ, Western Civilization, America, and President Trump, then shouldn’t you already be on board with it?

The problem that the Prometheans have is that most people have memories. So, when they first proclaim that X is disinformation, then are forced by events to admit that X is true, their ability to proclaim the truth as disinformation and their own propaganda as the truth is degraded.

Facebook is Color Revolution confirmed

 This isn’t exactly a surprise, but now we have confirmation that Facebook is in on the Color Revolution:

Facebook has announced that it will be wiping messages alleging that wildfires, which have been sweeping through Oregon, might be the work of certain groups after the FBI brushed off reports of arson as “conspiracy theories.”

“We are removing false claims that the wildfires in Oregon were started by certain groups,” Andy Stone, policy communications manager at Facebook, tweeted late on Saturday.

Defending what is effectively an act of censorship by the social media giant, Stone noted that speculation suggesting the blazes have been ignited by extremists are forcing law enforcement to “divert resources from fighting the fires and protecting the public.”

With its attacks on Qanon, Covid-skeptics, and now its defense of Antifa, Facebook has made it clear that it is now a publisher, with all of the responsibilities that entails. It won’t be able to hide behind the publisher/platform dance much longer. And meanwhile, loyalist Federal forces indicate that the fires are arson attacks targeting populated areas:

A federal law enforcement source shared with Law Enforcement Today that the feds are looking into whether the cases are linked together… and warn there could be more “attacks”. “We are reacting to a coordinated series of attempts to start fires anywhere and everywhere in Oregon. Public and Private lands, incorporated and unincorporated areas. By all indications so far in the preliminary stages of these investigations there is a coordinated effort on the part of these individuals to start fires in areas that are the least protected and most vulnerable then slowing working their way into more populated areas and neighborhoods. Please take this information as an advisory for you own account and welfare and please act in good faith with due diligence to plan accordingly for your own safety and the well being of your community.”

It sounds like it is time for the homestead community to work together and start developing regular security patrols. 

Busting the Boogaloos

It’s really rather remarkable that Team Soros and the media have actually managed to concoct a narrative that is less convincing than an oft-seen meme. After all, everyone even remotely familiar with the Alt-Right Revolutionary Movement knows that Sammy Hide is the real leader of the Boogaloo Bois.

The Boogaloo movement is a loosely organized network of anti-government extremists who advocate the violent overthrow of the U.S. government, and predict and hope for an impending civil war, which they refer to as ‘Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo,’ a reference to the title of the 1984 sequel to the film Breakin’.

Heinlein didn’t foresee the half of it when he wrote about the Crazy Years.

I know I’m excited

You’ve heard about the futility of putting lipstick on a pig. ST:D is going two better by smearing toxic waste on a corpse.

Star Trek: Discovery is set to introduce the show’s first ever transgender and non-binary characters in series three. Producers have confirmed that the new roles will make a debut on the third season next month.

Ian Alexander will be taking on the role of transgender character, Gray, while Blu del Barrio will play the non-binary Adira.

Transgender actor Ian Alexander, 19, who uses both they/them and he/him pronouns, is known for his role as Buck Vu in The OA and he also voiced Lev in the video game The Last of Us Part II. He is the first openly transgender Asian-American actor to appear on television. Ian uses their social media platform to campaign for transgender equality and anti-racism.

Surely this will attract the vast majority of the population that isn’t watching the continued devolution of Star Trek!

Conspiracy Theory is news minus 4 years

The mainstream media is finally beginning to admit that Pizzagate is real. From The Telegraph:

Paedophiles using cheese and pizza emojis as secret code on social media
28 August 2020

Cheese and pizza emojis are being used as a secret code by paedophiles to communicate on social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter, online safety groups have warned.

Or perhaps no one has informed The Telegraph that an actor was hired to fire a single shot at a computer, which thereby proves that no one has ever abused a child and you’re a dirty, ignorant conspiracy theorist if you think pedos exist, use social media, or communicate with each other in any way.

“We are saving the world”

It doesn’t get much more clear than this:

REPORTER: QAnon believes you are secretly saving the world from this cult of pedophiles and cannibals. Are you behind that?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Is that supposed to be a bad thing? We are, actually. We are saving the world.

Twitter bans mask skeptics

It’s always interesting to see what SJW narrratives are not only being pushed, but are being actively enforced, by the Tech Cartel:

Conservative pundit Bill Mitchell has been kicked off Twitter, saying his opposition to face masks first earned him a suspension, which became permanent after he unwittingly violated the rules by tweeting from a second account. Mitchell announced his ban in a post on Parler on Friday, laying his Twitter handle to rest after accumulating more than 600,000 followers. Earning regular retweets from President Donald Trump, the account was a source of controversy, at times backing ‘QAnon’ conspiracy theories and voicing skepticism toward Covid-19, among other things.

Frankly, since I don’t pay much attention to the ever-shifting Corona-chan narratives, I was still vaguely under the impression that the Narrative was still insisting that masks were unnecessary for the general public.

In late February and early March as the COVID-19 outbreak began accelerating in the US, hospitals and health facilities experienced severe shortages of personal protective equipment for healthcare workers. In response, experts like Fauci and the US Surgeon General Jerome Adams advised Americans against wearing masks. 

I imagine Twitter is going to be hell on margarine matters too.
