Google Searches Drop After Damore Firing

Google Searches Drop After Damore Firing — Google searches are way down here.  In late July, 95 percent of searches for stories on this site were via Google and this overwhelming percentage held through early August.

On Aug. 7, Google fired engineer James Damore after his internal memo warning of a poisonously politically correct culture at the corporate giant went public. Along with causing anger at the action’s hypocrisy and injustice, it woke many to the claims that Google was actively seeking to harm websites that didn’t share their political views, something we find easy to believe.

For the next several days, Google continued to dominate. On Aug. 13, however, something unprecedented occurred. More arrived here via other search engines — mostly DuckDuckGo, Bing and Yahoo — than Google.

Google soon regained it’s prime spot but no longer did it overwhelm. Since Aug. 13, only about 57 percent of those finding us were by Google.

Oh, and more are finding us via search engines, strangely enough.

We happily use Paoli Pa.-based DuckDuckGo for our searches. We have no idea what their politics are but we trust them to be fair.

Here is a link to a BusinessInsider interview with Damore which is worth watching.

James Fields Acquittal What If

James Fields Acquittal What If — James Fields Jr., the driver of the car that killed Heather Heyer during Saturday’s riots in Charlottesville, Va, may be the most hated man in America. Media outlets are calling him sans qualification a “neo Nazi” and “white supremacist”. The President, himself, has been backed into calling him a terrorist and murderer not necessarily to the joy of the prosecutors who are going to find it that much harder to find an untainted jury.

It would be the ultimate display of hipster irony if the progressives broke into the jail and hanged him from a lamppost.

Fields is charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death.

FindLaw.com says second degree murder is ordinarily defined as: 1) an intentional killing that is not premeditated or planned, nor committed in a reasonable “heat of passion”; or 2) a killing caused by dangerous conduct and the offender’s obvious lack of concern for human life. 

From the videos all of us have seen, it certainly fits but here’s a thought that will make certain heads spin: what if he’s acquitted?  What if his motivation wasn’t to cause harm but to flee danger as some tweets at the time seem to indicate? If he can show this, he will be acquitted of the murder charge and probably everything else.

So hipsters, progressives and media pundits, get your torches and clubs and rope and break into that jail now if you want done what you’ve already made your minds up about must be done.

Or else just ask what Clarence Darrow would do and let a trial happen. If Fields is found guilty he’ll be punished as deserved.

Racism Definition, Anti-American AntiFa And Honest Abe

Racism Definition,  Anti-American AntiFa And Honest Abe — The hate-group Antifa is portrayed by crony corporatists,  establishment media and Deep State Republicans as opponents of racism and defenders of the oppressed despite its funding by mega-oppressor George Soros and despite it being on The New Jersey Department of Homeland Security’s watchlist.

Please recognize that this group is a bad thing. They are modern-day brownshirts filled with hate and motivated by a desire to rule. They are worse than modern-day Klansmen and Nazis in that the modern-day Klan and Nazi Party are run by incompetents that would make Elmer Fudd look smart.

Antifa is run by pros and has a well-planned agenda.  “. . .fascisti si dividono in due categorie: i fascisti e gli antifascisti”* as the great Ennio Flaiano said.

Few people called “racists” are. Racism is the practice of defining ethnicities, categorizing human beings in them and then declaring certain categories don’t deserve civil rights. It’s a vile thing and the vast majority of Americans consider it such.

If someone should call you a racist for holding a political opinion or liking a certain candidate, make them define the word. Odds are they won’t even try. Antifa and its fellow-travelers want the definition to be arbitrary. They want it to be used only when it advances their agenda without people thinking about it.

For the snowflakes who may not been given an accurate depiction of American history in the public schools here is how a great man suggested we unify this country after a bloody war:

Fellow-Countrymen:

At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses the energies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured.

On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago all thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil war. All dreaded it, all sought to avert it. While the inaugural address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war—seeking to dissolve the Union and divide effects by negotiation. Both parties deprecated war, but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive, and the other would accept war rather than let it perish. And the war came.

One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union even by war, while the Government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully.

The Almighty has His own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh.” If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

Pennsylvania’s Racist Supporting Democrat Governor

Pennsylvania Racist Supporting Democrat Governor — Once upon a time there was a vicious race riot in York, Pa. A young city police officer took the side of the white supremacists shouting epitaphs and acting in such a vile way he was even charged with murder for the death of a black woman.

He was acquitted but little doubt was left regarding his feelings towards minorities.

That man was Charles “Charlie” H. Robertson who would become the city’s mayor. His campaign manager was — wait for it — Tom “Big Bad Phony” Wolf.

Wolf, of course, is now our governor.

Wonder if Antifa would back building a statue of him.

Jason Kessler Interview Regarding Charlottesville

Jason Kessler Interview Regarding Charlottesville — For the record, we couldn’t care less if Charlottesville, Va. removes a statue of Robert E. Lee, but there appears to be another side to yesterday’s (Aug. 12) events that isn’t being reported, namely that the city failed to provide police presence and created circumstances in which violence was likely.

Here is an interview (language warning) with event organizer Jason Kessler in which he gives his side.

Don’t expect it to be up too long on YouTube.

Remember Marc Rich, James Comey And Bill Clinton

Remember Marc Rich, James Comey And Bill Clinton — Today’s headlines and top stories concern faux outrage by swamp-dwellers regarding a 20-minute meeting at which no deals were made and all participants agreed was a waste of time.

So with nothing in the news — well, there is looming nuclear war in Korea, revolution in Venezuela, the crushing defeat of ISIS in Mosul and looming massive changes to our health care delivery system but leave those things aside — let us have a history lesson.

And the history lesson is Marc Rich.

Marc Rich was a billionaire international commodoties trader whose clients included  Fidel Castro, Marxist Angola, the Nicaraguan Sandinistas, Muammar Gaddafi, Nicolae Ceaușescu, Augusto Pinochet and the apartheid regime of South Africa.

After the overthrow of the Shah in Iran, he developed a special relationship with Ayatolla Khomeini and undermined our oil embargo with that terrorist-supporting nation.

In 1983, he and partner Pincus Green were indicted by then federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani on 65 criminal counts including tax evasion, wire fraud, racketeering and trading with Iran during the embargo — while Iran was holding U.S. hostages.

Looking at 300 years in prison, he fled to Switzerland and lived on the lam with his great wealth.

On Jan. 20, 2001, his last day as president, Bill Clinton — that’s Hillary’s husband — pardoned Rich. Some cynics suggested the pardon was purchased with  $1 million in campaign contributions to the Democrat National Committee, $100,000 to Hillary Clinton’s senate campaign and $450,000 to the Clinton Library foundaton.

And well, um, other things.

So an investigation was launched. Who was tasked with running it? Our old friend James Comey. He found nothing wrong. Nobody was surprised. The swamp takes care of its own.

The Trumps are not part of the swamp. Those who don’t live in Washington D.C. know full well that Donald Trump Jr. et al did nothing worth being upset about concerning that short meeting with Russian Natalia Veselnitskaya on June 9, 2016.

I mean it’s not like he propped up the Iranians and Castro and supported apartheid, right?

Montco Dems Continue Pandering To Donors

Montco Dems Continue Pandering To Donors

Montco Dems Continue Pandering To Donors
Commissioner Joe Gale

By Joe Gale

As Montgomery County’s watchdog and voice for the forgotten taxpayer, I have on multiple occasions exposed the Democrat Commissioners’ practices of catering to campaign donors, especially in the area of low-income housing.

My hope was that my shining a light on the shaded backroom governing practices of former Commissioner Josh Shapiro would put an end to politics as usual in Montgomery County.

However, since Commissioner (Val) Arkoosh assumed the role of chair of the board in November 2016 the practice of catering to campaign donors continues.

There comes a point where we can no longer dismiss these votes as isolated incidents and must call it what it is: A pattern and practice of raising taxes on county residents while awarding sweetheart deals to campaign donors.

In the past, the awarding of contracts to campaign donors was done mostly through the allocation of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds. However recently, Commissioner Arkoosh has been doing most of her catering through Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) which gives local taxing authorities the ability to give special tax provisions to a taxpayer for a limited period of time.

This is particularly concerning because Commissioner Arkoosh, with the help of former Commissioner Josh Shapiro who broke his no-tax pledge, has voted to raise taxes on the average county taxpayer every year she has been in office.

When looking at the most recent occurrence and then tracing back to prior votes, the facts speak for themselves:

  • At the meeting held June 15, 2017, Commissioner Arkoosh voted to award ELON Development Company, a development arm of the Altman Group of Companies, special tax exemptions for a low-income, senior housing project in Norristown.1 The developer, through another arm of the company, Glenside Partners, has made $1,000 in campaign contributions to Commissioner Arkoosh’s campaign committee, 2 $2,500 to the Shapiro/Arkoosh joint campaign account,3 and has given $1,000 to Former Commissioner Josh Shapiro’s campaign committee.4
  • At the meeting held February 2, 2017, Commissioner Arkoosh voted to award Developer Kevin Silverang special tax exemption for a project in the Borough of Hatboro.5 Kevin Silverang’s wife, Claudia Silverang has donated to $2,500 to the joint Shapiro/Arkoosh campaign account6 and a total of $14,500 to former Commissioner Shapiro’s campaign committee.7
    • Silverang is also the beneficiary of a sale/leaseback agreement in which the County sold its Human Services Building to Silverang for $17.5 million and then agreed to leaseback the building for $34.5 million in rent over the course of 15 years.8
  • At the meeting held December 1, 2016, Arkoosh voted to award Westrum Development Co. special tax exemptions as well as a tax forgiveness of $40,000 owed in County taxes (in addition to forgiveness of more than $750,000 in taxes owed to Norristown School District and Municipality).9 At that meeting, Michael Clarke, the Solicitor of the Norristown School Board, urged the Commissioners to vote for the project.10 Michael Clarke has donated $2,500 to Commissioner Arkoosh’s campaign account.11

These most recent examples are in addition to the other deals with donors which I exposed in the past.  Along with this press release, I am including my previous releases that explain the catering to campaign contributors I brought to light last year.

H8ers Gonna Kill

H8ers Gonna Kill
A screen shot of shooting suspect James Hodgkinson’s Facebook page in which he says “Time to destroy Trump & Co.”

H8ers Gonna Kill — A politically motivated attack on Republican congressmen at a baseball field in Virginia this morning, June 14, shows that those with large platforms better be as careful with what they say as they demand average folk to be with firearms.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA1) was wounded  and is in stable condition. Two Capitol Police officers were also wounded with non-life threatening injuries as was Zack Barth, who is legislative correspondent for Congressman Roger Williams (R-TX25).

Scalise is the third-ranking member of the House of Representatives.

The shooter, who was killed by the Capitol Police security detail,  has been identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66,  of Belleville, Ill.

Hodgkinson reportedly inquired if those on the field were Republicans before opening fire with a rifle. His Facebook page promiently features Socialist-progressive Bernie Sanders. On March 22, he posted:  Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.

If one does not think that bloody images of our president presented by people praised by our elites don’t give license for violence then they are either delusional fools or employees at establishment media outlets.

The most dangerous person is one who thinks he’s inherently good and that fits the bill for self-proclaimed progressives. This type does not feel any need to try to understand those who disagree and finds himself able to justify any action whether it be slander, theft, vandalism, sexual abuse, and murder.

USA Greenest Nation Or In Top 6 Anyway

USA Greenest Nation Or In Top 6 Anyway — The USA is not quite the greenest nation on Earth. It’s 12th according to the World Health Organization. Of course, if one takes out South Pacific island paradises like Vanatu, Fiji, Micronesia and the Solomons, and one discounts non-industrial places like Brunei and Liberia, then we are a solid sixth behind New Zealand, Australia, Sweden, Finland and Canada.

We are ahead of the international common scolds that are France and Germany.

Don’t even ask about India, China and Russia.

Point that out the next time a CNN watcher whines about us leaving the Paris Climate Scam.

Or you see Pat Meehan.

Hat tip Thomas Williams.

Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate

Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate — Attention-seeker Kathy Griffin who some call a comedian circulated a photo of herself holding our President’s bloody head.

This isn’t speech to be defended. Speech to be defended concerns telling objective truths i.e. Nigger Jim was a character in Huckleberry Finn, and expressing opinions i.e. the theory of evolution is wrong.

Speech that unambiguously incites violence, much less murder, must not be defended. Note the word “unambiguously”. Certain snowflakes, who are ironically far more likely to be fans of Ms. Griffin than the rest of us, would claim that saying MAGA or that homosexuality is sinful incites violence. That is the Kafkaesque sea in which they swim.

In the 1960s and 1970s, funnymen like Redd Foxx, Don Rickles and Mel Brooks used ethnic humor in ways that would give the children who now set our social standards vapors. There was no hate in what they said, though. One always felt they actually liked the people they teased.

That is not the case for the “edgy” garbage that passes for “humor’ today. Holding the bloody head of a living person can only be construed as hate.
