    Facebook Sells $300,000 In Ads to Disabled Vet, Then Purges His Pages Facebook banned several pages operated by disabled by Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage, after he says he spent $300,000 on advertising. The social media giant removed without warning Kolfage's Right Wing News and Military Grade Coffee Company (which donates 10% of all profits to veteran organizations), in a site-wide effort to crack down on "misinformation" on the network. Right Wing News alone had over 3 million followers at the time of its banning. Facebook conveniently purged the site 2 weeks before elections] … According to his new wesbite, Kolfage, a triple amputee, explains: "Facebook shut down thousands of Facebook accounts for their political opinions, saying in effect that they don’t have a 'legitimate political argument.'” …

    Drop of few excerpts of Native American wisdom here: A hundred years of submission and servitude, of protectionism and paternalism have created psychological barriers for Indian people that are far more difficult to break down and conquer than are the problems of economic and social poverty. - David Courchene, Leading Thunderbird (Manitoba) (1969). ... Most members of the National Indian Youth Council can remember when we were children and sent many hours at the feet of our grandfathers listening to stories of the time when the Indians were a great people, when we were free, when we were rich, when we lived the good life. At the same time we hear stories of droughts, famines, and pestilence among Indian people. But it is only recently that we realized that there was surely great material deprivation in those days, and that our old people felt rich because they were free. They were rich in the things of the spirit. But if there is one thing that characterizes the Indian life today it is poverty of the spirit. … we are poor in spirit because we are not free … We are not free. We do not make choices. Our choices are made for us … these choices and decisions are made by Federal administrators, bureaucrats, and their yes men, euphemistically called tribal governments. … We have many rulers. They are called social workers, cops, school teachers, churches, et cetera, and recently OEO employees … they tell us what is good for us and how they programmed us … there is a struggle going on in America now between those who want more “local” control of programs and those who would keep the power and the purse in the hands of the Federal Government. … no one is arguing that the dispossessed, the poor , be given any control over their own destiny. … Nor have those of us on the reservations fared any better under the paternalistic control of Federal administrators. … Some of us fear that this is the shape of things to come in the War on Poverty effort. … We are told in the not-so-subtle racist vocabulary of the modern middle class that our children are “deprived.” Exactly what they are deprived of seems to be unstated. We give our children love, warmth, and respect in our homes and the qualities necessary to be a warm human being. … Perhaps they have a hard time reconciling themselves to being a number on an IBM card. Nevertheless, many educators and politicians seem to assume that we, the poor, the Indians, are not capable of handling our own affairs and even raising our own children, and that the State institutions must do that job for us and take them away from us as soon as they can. My grandmother said last week, “Train your child well now for soon she will belong to her teacher and the schools.” …

    With Kashoggi Murder, Media Moguls Suddenly Discover that Saudi Regime is Evil They weren’t appalled a few weeks ago, when the Saudis blew up a bus full of school children. But they are appalled now … Yemen … It’s the poorest country in the Middle-East and it’s being systematically destroyed by its vastly richer neighbors, with the full backing and cooperation of NATO. In fact, we’re making a fortune out of it. Bombs are expensive, the Saudis need a lot of them, and you can only use them once. Ker-ching. … Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy with a laughable track-record when it comes to human rights. This has been known for decades … Barely a week goes by without some author, somewhere in the alternate media, writing up a story about the crimes of the House of Saud … When he was selling wars in Libya and Syria, did Freedland ever once suggest the “humanitarian bombing” of Riyadh? Did he object to his paper selling ad space to promote the Muhammed bin Salman, “the great reformer”? Did he boycott events or protest arms deals or in any way speak out? Did he devote even a single one his columns to the war in Yemen? …

    But do you care about the quality of your life? If things are preordained, and I doubt they are in any fatalistic sense beyond our control, then we're probably all screwed to the barn door. But on assumption that we are indeed yet able to alter courses, why not make the effort? I see no reason to just hand everything over to these dangerous, screaming, tantrum-pitching, ill-bred, mentally unstable brats. If they take the day in November, you may live to regret not having lifted a finger to stop them because when they have the mental advantage of having the imprimatur of the "state" behind them, there comes with that all manner of materially very real badness that they can then foist upon us, not the least of which is the military and police. They can wreck us economically as Obama made effort. There's nearly no end to the mischief they could get into - dangerous mischief. Just imagine the antifa crowd being actively protected by Congress. Don't be too fast to laugh that off. Thirty years ago, how many people would have thought it possible that we as a people could degenerate into that which we now see everywhere? If you're going to just give up, why go with half-measures? If the day comes I choose to surrender, I'm eating a 12 ga. lunch.

    Exactly, which is why I say deny them the capacity to employ the power of the state against us. It's the immediate threat that must be neutralized first, then go on to other issues. Let them go insane with bitterness and hatred so they abandon the last vestiges of intelligence and attack. That is all the pretext needed to cull their ranks and put them back in their places. Or would we prefer to hand everything to them on a silver platter? Things are very much more serious than many people see, much less understand and appreciate. Stopping them from getting in should be paramount. Folks need to set aside nonsense and impractical attitudes for at least this short while. There's really nothing to lose, whereas there's plenty of dire risks in not voting. I don't like the notion of voting in general. Those things to which voting is applied seem to me to be mostly anti-freedom in their basic nature. But this is the hand we have been dealt. Use the corrupted system to minimize or possibly even reverse the deterioration in our general circumstances at the hands of these devils. I see things as being so bad and teetering, that we need to cut the shit and start using that which is available to us.

    One step at a time, pal. I believe the issue between the so-called "left" and everyone else must first be settled. I believe they need to be put in their places because they have no intentions of ever respecting those who do not align with them unquestioningly. This is pretty serious shit and it is very immediate. The rest must wait until this matter is cleared up. Think of it as political triage or a sort, identifying and acting upon priorities. Treat the more immediate threat first, then move on. I would also point out that if the left goes apey, and it's likely they will not in sufficiency to be corrected as I deem necessary to make a deep change in the fabric of American cultural attitudes, some number of Americans that have been heretofore reticent to employ their arms as you note may come around to a better attitude as a matter of necessity in defense of themselves. They may not. My hope is anorexic and at the edge of death, but until it dies, I will hang on to it. Ideally, they left makes serious war on us and we correct them in great numbers. I dare not hope too strongly for such an outcome that is so necessary as a first step in cleaning the political gene pool. Shame on us all and our forbears as well for having allowed things to come to this miserable pass, but here we are and if we are serious about a better future, this is the bitter we must eat. In. My. Opinion. Reason and decency have been abandoned by a proportion of the American people far too great to be simply accepted and ignored as statistical "noise". Not only are the lefties, or whatever you wish to call them, irrational and largely disgusting as human beings, more importantly they are dangerous and openly stating their intentions to do great harm to the entire nation. If that is not sufficient for deep and non-equivocating correction, then what is, assuming they initiate violence? We're probably doomed to a socialist future of pure hell, but you never know. It ain't over 'til it's over. The American people may surprise us.

    Trump Administration Bans US Aid Groups From North Korea While the Trump Administration has long maintained that sanctions against North Korea don’t impact humanitarian aid, in practice the administration has banned all American aid groups from the country, shutting down aid efforts. This comes as the administration looks to increase sanctions against North Korea, and to make sure that growing diplomatic progress between them and the rest of the world doesn’t end up easing their isolation. … All US groups involved in such project, however, are getting the same answer, rejecting their travel. Aid groups also reported confusion at the Treasury Department about the regulation and licensing of NGOs that had worked with North Korea’s government, including on aid projects. Cutting through the red tape is all but impossible at this point.

    Sen.

The committee chairman, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) has warned that this has to stop. … the administration must not continue to refuse intelligence access to senators. .. President Trump is inclined to let the issue slide, and that means he’s also inclined to keep the Senate in the dark as long as possible. ...

Contributed to an Amerindian cookbook called -- I shit you not -- Pow Wow Chow where she referred to herself as Cherokee 4. Claimed her parents had to elope because her father's family didn't want him to marry Cherokee/Delaware woman This spin is a bullshit narrative attempting to retcon what is clearly decades of a woman masquerading as something she was not. I don't doubt she would call herself white when it benefitted her, then flit back to being Cherokee or Delaware or whatever.

    But what if they are not preordained? Likely? Perhaps not. But consider this: if they are not, your actions contribute to what seems clearly a lesser evil. If they are, you've lost nothing but a few minutes of your time. I believe that slim chance renders the effort worth the while. If Democrats regain one or both houses, bet your ass they will wage a campaign of retribution on the rest of us. Their bitter hatred is their weakness and is no joke. Granting them access to the levers of state would be madness. Setting them upon the American people would drive us to either fire the first shot or capitulate. Either way, we lose. Keep them outside in the cold, drive their hatred beyond their weak-tea limits so they make first move.

    Defeating them in November is, I suspect, more likely to drive the "left" to the extremes needed to get the rest of us out of complacency. I could be mistaken, but putting those cockroach wannabes back into power is likely not the good path forward. I understand your approach, but do not think it would work as you believe. We had eight years of Obama and his horde of vile dullard criminals in power. What did Americans do? Nothing. It is not the way. Defeating them, thus driving them to such rage that they fire the first shot so that we can fire the last, all the while denying them access to their means of putting the screws to decent people. I no longer see any reasonable likelihood that we are able to resolve these deep divisions without bloodshed. The "left" is marching on the sovereign rights of everyone who is not them, openly stating their intentions to the world as to what they will do with those unaligned with them. Therefore, I say feed their bitter hatred until they attack so that we may, in defense of what decency remains to us, destroy them once and hopefully for all. I know this is all very dramatic sounding, but the choice seems clear: eliminate them or capitulate to them. Firing the first shot is not the way for "us", so they must be given the incentive to do so, that we may fire the last. Rather that those of the "leftish" persuasion got some sense, but this is highly unlikely. Therefore, they should be destroyed for they represent a very real existential threat to the shred-remnants of human freedom.

The tabloid cited no sources at all for its story, but did cite a Chinese satirist’s social media tweet.

    After decades of beheading or killing critics, Washington and US Media Moguls suddenly Cry Murder Most Foul in Istanbul over Kashoggi. Comments from Eric Margolis After watching the Saudis behead and even reportedly crucify critics and opponents for decades, suddenly Washington’s great and good are outraged by a single murder. The victim was a Saudi columnist … linked to the former Saudi intelligence chief, Turki al-Faisal. But even gentle criticism of the royal government, and particularly its strongman, crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (aka MBS), caused Khashoggi to be murdered and cut up into pieces in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, to where he was lured last week and from whence he never emerged alive. Turkish intelligence … monitoring … picked up the gruesome details as Khashoggi’s fingers were reportedly cut off, followed by his head. Khashoggi wrote for numerous papers, including The Washington Post. He had become a pesky journalist who irked the headstrong Saudi crown prince … Crown Prince Mohammed has been arresting, detaining, shaking down and intimidating his subjects, all applauded by Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner who is deep in bed with the moneybags Saudis. I’m surprised that the Saudis didn’t ask the Israelis, who are very good at assassination and kidnapping, to go after Khashoggi. …

    They closed the thread before I was able to respond to you, so I just wanted to say, I agree with all of your concerns about Rand Paul. I still think he's better than the other options, but he isn't my ideal. I'm most likely going to vote for him, but I don't blame people who won't. And if I was still going to live in NYS in 2016 (I'm moving to Virginia for college, which as we know is a swingy state) I would be less likely to vote for him. Even still, if the LP candidate is too good to pass up (Someone more like Harry Browne than Gary Johnson... the latter of which was more of a lesser of five evils) I would consider voting for them.
