Thanks, Carter, Clinton, and Obama.

“This agreement will help to achieve a longstanding and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula. This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region. It’s a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community.” President Bill Clinton, October 18, 1994

#CalExit Is a Nationalist Movement

The leaders of California’s secession movement (I wish them great success) by the way would deny that they are motivated by nationalism (because that’s a dirty word to the left), but when you look up the word “nationalism” and put the sentiments expressed by the California secessionists in that context; it’s pretty clear that they are pursuing a form of nationalism even while claiming it’s one of the things they’re against.

nationalism noun na·tion·al·ism ˈnash-nə-ˌli-zəm, ˈna-shə-nə-ˌli-zəm
patriotic feeling, principles, or efforts; an extreme form of this, especially marked by a feeling of superiority over other countries.
advocacy of political independence for a particular country.

Is the CalExit Movement for political independence fueled by feelings of superiority over the rest of the United States. OMG, yes. A quick read through the CalExit website affirms that. The other states are stupid and wrong about everything, so California needs to separate itself.

Also, look to the words of the movement’s leader himself.

Calexit leader Shankar Singam appeared on Tuesday’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight to promote the secession of California from the union. Singam said California doesn’t have much in common with the rest of the country. He declared, “This is California. We’re not the United States.”

What the California secessionists want is a rejection of the political pluralism of the United States into an ideologically rigid, social-democrat political state where dissenting opinion is as welcome as it is at Google.

McMaster updates

Earlier installments here and here. The issue is, that NSA McMaster allegedly is:

  • clearing out Israel supporters and Trump supporters from the National Security staff, replacing them with Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood and Iran supporters. Experts in this story now rattle off about 8 names.
  • preferring his own globalist, interventionist foreign policy to President Trump’s America First agenda. And,
  • perhaps being one of the “leakers” who undermines Trump.

I have to say: On paper, General McMaster looks like he should be one of the good guys. But Media Matters (Soros-Brock smear army), MSNBC (Morning Joe), The Young Turks (or Aging Armenian-Holocaust Deniers), CNN (the CIA News Network), WaPo and NYT, and everyone else on the Left have lined up strongly behind McMaster. That has to be a bad sign. Anyway, the updates:

How hypocritical and low is the Left? This low

Bakers refuse a pro-Trump 9-year-old’s cake request.

When it becomes a thing, The Washington Post reveals the kid’s name, his hometown and his mother’s name. Also known as doxxing.

To be clear: I believe in freedom of association. I think the bakers should be able to refuse. Just like Christian bakers should be able to refuse the wedding cakes of gay couples.

But the Left takes the opposite view: that bakers shouldn’t be able to refuse any of the public. Fine, except for one very big thing.

Lefties care ONLY about making Christian bakers serve gays. When it comes to making ordinary bakers serve a kid who likes the President, the Left is nowhere to be found; or even doxxes the poor kid. Disgraceful!

A window into CIA interrogation; is it torture?

Re: waterboarding and “enhanced interrogation” – whether they constitute torture – my own view has long been the following:

  • Under the law, “torture” is a matter of intent. For example, if a doctor is forced to operate on you without anesthetic, it probably isn’t torture. His intent is to save a life – yours – and he inflicts no more pain than is unavoidable for that goal.
  • By analogy, “enhanced interrogation” is not torture if it’s done in the right way and time, to save people’s lives. If it’s honestly thought necessary to save lives, and is done no more than needed to acquire key information, it isn’t torture.

That’s my opinion. The key words are “if”, and “honestly”. In other words, it’s a slippery slope. The interrogators had better be honest, right, and in control of themselves. They can go too far, very easily. When they do go too far, we have to be honest ourselves – and put them on trial for any crimes or torts under the law.

Which brings me to this press release: Two CIA psychologists will be sued for allegedly going too far.

The lawsuit was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Suleiman Abdullah Salim, Mohamed Ahmed Ben Soud, and the family of Gul Rahman, who froze to death in a secret CIA prison. They were [interrogated] using methods developed by the CIA-contracted psychologists, James Mitchell and John “Bruce” Jessen…

…the case is scheduled to go to trial on September 5 and expected to last two to three weeks.

Mitchell and Jessen helped convince the CIA to adopt…methods…including slamming them into walls, stuffing them inside coffin-like boxes, exposing them to extreme temperatures, starving them, inflicting various kinds of water torture, and chaining them in stress positions designed to inflict pain and to keep them awake for days on end…

Sadly, the article is biased (it’s the ACLU after all) in repeatedly calling all that “torture” before the trial. The point of the trial is to decide. I tried to edit out the bits where it’s decided prematurely. To continue:

Mitchell and Jessen trained other CIA personnel in their methods. In 2005, they founded a company — Mitchell, Jessen & Associates — that the CIA contracted with to run its entire [enhanced interrogation] program, including supplying interrogators and security for black sites and rendition operations. Mitchell and Jessen admitted as part of this lawsuit that the government paid the company $81 million over several years. The CIA let Mitchell and Jessen themselves evaluate the effectiveness…and the agency has since admitted that this was a mistake.

According to Mitchell and Jessen’s theory, if humans were psychologically destroyed through…abuse, they would become totally unable to resist demands for information…

The CIA adopted Mitchell and Jessen’s proposals, and in August of 2002, the agency secured Justice Department authorization in the so-called “torture memos,” which were later rescinded by the Justice Department…

The plaintiffs are suing Mitchell and Jessen under the Alien Tort Statute — which allows federal lawsuits for gross human rights violations…

Mitchell and Jessen may go with a “Zyklon B” defense – the idea that they were merely fulfilling their contracts, and it is others (namely CIA officials) who decided how to apply their methods.

As always, say what you think in the comments; I won’t necessarily be persuaded to your view; but I’m still interested to hear it.

Then and now

Then and now; Nazi beating down free speech then, Google beating down free speech now

I daresay that the reference is not only to the James Damore situation (which technically is not about free speech; it’s more about working conditions and the illegal, retaliatory firing of a whistleblower), but also to:

  • Youtube censoring conservatives and alt-media, bringing on left-wing extremist groups to do it;
  • the allegations of Google helping Hillary by biasing its search-term auto-completes, etc.

Anyway, Alphabet Inc. has a lot of ‘splainin to do.

And we’re fools if we think Google is not biased. I’ve noticed that other search engines are more complete, when it comes to indexing/returning GayPatriot articles.

By now you’ve heard about the memo that circulated at Google excoriating criticizing the company for its politically correct corporate culture, mindless ‘Diversity uber alles’ policies, and intolerance for people with different opinions. To demonstrate their commitment to diversity, Google hunted down and fired him. But the shockwaves are still being felt because opinions critical of political correctness and diversity are ‘violence’ because ‘ they make people feel afraid.

How glad I am not to be a mewling snowflake. But if one of the points alleged by the memo is that some women (and weak, effeminate millennial beta males) are so emotionally fragile that they are a detriment to the workplace, doesn’t skipping work because a memo hurt their feelings kind of prove the point?
