Barbara Bush and YouTube

 
Barbara Bush died, some people have been criticized for speaking ill of the dead. I don't subscribe to that rule at all so here we go. Barbara Bush is largely irrelevant, but any week that I can avoid talking about Orange Buffoon I'll take. You may say she wasn't in power; her husband and son were. True, but she also didn't want to be inconvenienced by people mentioning the "body bags" coming home from Iraq. Spare me the let's not criticize the dead, that's ridiculous. Especially since when black men are killed by cops or someone like George Zimmerman the media is always quick to point out their cannabis usage. Some people on the right were smearing Trayvon Martin by claiming he was an entirely different person, that's literal. They said the media was lying and Zimmerman was attacked by a man which in no way resemble the actual victim. When Jimmy Carter got cancer people like Ann Couter said "a cancer has a cancer". Are conservatives offended that people criticized Barbara Bush? I don't care. I could research all the ways she was a flawed human being but I have better things to do. She's not worth my attention.

CBS claims ads are running on nazi videos and left-wing conspiracy shows like Jimmy Dore. I am actually going to split from the left echo chamber and say Dore has conspiracy elements to his show particularly surrounding Russia. Though the example CBS brings up is a very poor one. Yes! Many people are questioning who done the chemical weapon attack in Syria; including myself! It's not as if your government has never lied about war. See last entry. It is very convenient to scare advertisers away from independent media since they are not spending money with you. Here's the problem; many young people do not trust traditional media, and perhaps you can thank your Dear Leader for labeling you fake news on right. On the left independent media serves them better. If your industry is irrelevant to more and more of the population these scare tactic articles will only go so far; perhaps you should make a better product!

Buffoon Lawyer, Syria, Pulse nightclub

 
Finally some actual news. Buffoon's lawyer got his office raided. You have to be really bad at crime to get your lawyer's office raided. It looks like the lawyer broke the law by paying off Stormy Daniels in the middle of the campaign. Privilege doesn't apply if you commit a crime as a lawyer but I don't know how far reaching this is. It probably still applies in unrelated matters. So don't get too excited. However if the lawyer has committed a crime he could probably turn against his client. Also if this is his way of doing business has he made similar mistakes in other areas? Wait and see.

Syria apparently launched another chemical attack resulting in firepower from the U.S. Whether the Syrian government actually launched such weapons, fuck knows! The attack last year was not confirmed as being from the Syrian government. It could be the other side for all we know, even a host on Fox News has pointed this out, along with independent outlets like TheYoungTurks. Why would Assad launch a chemical attack soon after the U.S. announced they're leaving? This would be counter productive. This sounds like Iraq has weapons of mass destruction to me. Any time a government says that they're going to war because, I am just going to assume they're lying. Also the U.S. declaring war always makes things worse. Topple Assad and Islamic radicals are waiting to take over. It's a no win situation, for fuck sakes leave it alone. It would be helpful if foreign governments took this line instead of saying that the attack was understandable.

People including myself got things wrong about the Pulse nightclub shooting. I don't know why this is only just coming out now. The shooter wasn't on gay dating apps and had not visited the gay nightclub before. He intended to shoot up another nightclub but it was closed. From the information at the time he looked like a self hating closeted homosexual but it seems that he was just a regular terrorist.

Whitehouse, YouTube

 
Orange Buffoon said something remarkibly stupid. Of course he did. This is nothing new but let's laugh at it anyway. On easter he did a speech to kids and he was praising the military, because apparently kids really care about that. That wasn't even the funniest part. He said that his people keep the building in tippy toppy shape and the building that he was in had no name; he was talking about the Whitehouse, so pretty sure it had a name! The only way that I can explain that is he was just rambling crap without really knowing what he was saying or putting a coherrent thought together. Again, nothing new but found this hilarious.

A woman did a shooting at YouTube headquarters, I am mainly covering this to say that it could have happened anywhere as it is the United States, shootings happen everywhere; the YouTube community is sensatoning this. People are frustrated about ads being pulled off their videos. Of course it is not a reason to go on a shooting spree but crazy people are not rational. On a personal note I am not happy about not being a YouTube partner anymore but I was only making $1 per year from videos, so meh!

VA, Roseanne

 
The head of veterans health-care has been fired because he was resisting moves to do privatizations; good for him. His replacement is the guy that gave the press conference about Dear Leader's health. His experience at running a programme like the VA. Fuck all. Compliment Buffoon, you'll get promoted. Privatization will be a fucking disaster. Right wing 101: Under fund something so it breaks then scream privatization as the solution. You just add an profit incentive with privatization which despite the right wing fantasy leads to worse services as corporations try to squeeze as much profit out with of it as they can.

Let's talk about Rosanne because I am sick of covering the Buffoon show. I may reduce these blogs; it's becoming unbearable. Rosanne, former green party candidate for President, now a Buffoon supporter. What the fuck? I really think she's gone nuts as I saw an interview with her a few years ago, she was rambling about evil. Her reasoning doesn't really add up on supporting Buffoon as she claimed the people wanted change but 2.9 million more voted for Hillary. You could legitimately claim that the people wanted a change from neoliberalism despite this but Orange Buffoon is not that change. He is a racist asshole appointing Goldman Sachs and an oil CEO to his cabinet, oh I almost forgot people who have nazi ties. I really don't think people were looking for that change. It would be like looking for a bird, and instead of finding that cute little singing bird, you find a bear that beats and eats you, then your family goes bankrupt from the debt that you left behind. I know what you're thinking; my stories are wonderful; I should write novels. Perhaps she is one of those people who think Orange Buffoon could blow up the system but people who think like that are taking risks, there is absolutely no guarantee that if the system does blow up, the poor will benefit. it didn't in 2008 after all. Ensuring that actual progressives are elected is probably the only way to do that.

Buffoon departures, Cambridge Analytica

 
H.R. McMaster resigned, was Buffoon's National Security Adviser, now being replaced with a war hawk neocon that still thinks the Iraq war was a good idea. Apparently Buffoon didn't consider him first time because of his moustache but he thought that he did well on Fox News so he is now hiring him. I am not making this up, this isn't satire, this is the news today. The Deputy Attorney General was fired days before he was scheduled to retire. Apparently this is because the administration wants to discredit him as bitter if he testifies down the track.

Cambridge Analytica. Facebook has gotten themselves into a cluserfuck as this company was able to steal the data of tens of millions of users. That is not something that you just missed. You know when a company is sucking gigabytes of data. You can't blame Orange Buffoon because he probably didn't know, he doesn't know much of anything. Political parties building profiles of voters is just standard practice even if they are building information with door to door tactics. I think that the problem is when they illegally acquire information, obviously they shouldn't do that. This is true for the private sector. Big data is big business. Especially for advertising and now social media companies. A decade ago it was ad servers that would build a profile of you. Now social media companies are doing it and people are volunteering their information. ID thieves could have a field day and for social media they don't even have to be a staff member. VPNs are no good because then they just have the information themselves. I don't have a solution but ensuring there is regulations around data storage would be good, then again companies can just incorporate anywhere in the world. There is no solution, we're all fucked!

Tillison, Replacements, NZ Greens, American Idol

 
Rex Tillison was voted off the island; he was fired. This came after he said that Russia was probably responsible for the poisoning in the UK of a Russian spy. (which it probably was, anybody that gives Putin the benefit of the doubt is just trying to view Putin in a more positive light, which is just fucking bizarre coming from some on the left. Putin is an anti gay dictator who invades places with a history of ordering his political enemies to be killed but when an ex Russian spy is attacked with a substance unique to Russia we apparently not suppose to jump to the most obvious conclusion in the world. I'm not saying don't investigate, but we don't have to be Putin apologists for fuck sakes) Rex previously called Orange Buffoon a fucking moron, I'm surprised that the firing didn't happen sooner.

His replacement appears to be the current CIA director who seems to be a puppet for the Koch family. So from one oil company puppet to another oil company puppet, what part of this is drainning to swamp? The new CIA head approved torture programs and probably should be in prison. Thanks Obama for not prosecuting torturers. In related news the new Economic Adviser may be a CNBC contributor that didn't predict the financial collapse or the housing bubble and also believes in trickle down economics. This person is basically a reality denier that fucks up constantly. A perfect match for Orange Buffoon.

The Greens in New Zealand have done a deal with National to give them some of their questions. National is the opposition, this is fucking stupid. Is James Shaw aware that we don't live in the U.S.A. where working with your opposition is fetishized? By the way when that is done it's never to the benefit of the left. Hillary Clinton wanted to work with Republicans, that worked out well for her. If the Greens wanted to make the government transparent the best way to do that is ask the questions yourself instead of giving your opposition air time. If the goal was to pick up National voters. Again, Hillary Clinton thought similarly, good luck with that. For people who want a National Green government, it will only lead the death of the Greens as their left-wing base will go elsewhere. What Green supporter is like "Gee, I really wish that National got to ask the government more questions" no fucking body has said that, what the fuck?

Katy Perry kissed a male 20 year old American Idol contestant. My feeling is the boy wanted his first kiss to be special, and that should have been respected. I will give the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't known. Some are labeling this sexual harassment, while true, this is also TV, not that it excuses the behaviour but I guess things happen and some people look on it differently. If this was arranged prior I wouldn't have a problem, this isn't about the age gap it's about consent. Poor judgment from the people at Idol, great publicity stunt from a show nobody cares about but extremely poor execution. An apology and compensation of some sort could be the best course of action.

Boring news, Democrates

 
The news is getting boring.
Stormy Daniels news, don't care, boring.
Two people left the Buffoon administration, people leave every few weeks. The top economic adviser has left; he got his tax cuts, now no reason to stay and get dragged down with the Buffoon administration. The Communications Director offended Buffoon by saying her job was to tell lies for him, gone.
I don't want to cover Russia news.

The Democrates are helping Republicans to deregulate the banks including allowing banks to hide information on racial discrimination. You would think that they would be smarter and realize their base is going to hate them for it, apparently not.

Meanwhile Corey Booker and Kisten Gilibrand have stopped taking corporate PAC money, in short because they want to be President and think that this will play well with the base. No corporate PAC money doesn't mean no big money, they can still hold fund raisers with rich donors. Corey Booker is a corporatist. Kirsten Gilibrand seems to be a shape shifter that adjust her beliefs depending on who she wants votes from; she had a reputation as being a corporate democrate, now apparently she's a progressive. My gut feeling is you should trust people that have been progressive all along rather than people that may be doing it for theatre; Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, Nina Turner and to a lesser extent Elizabeth Warren.

Parkland fallout

 
Conspiracy theorists allege the Parkland survivors are paid actors. If you think this you may want to commit yourself to somewhere, or see a councillor, or read up on critical thinking. if your first thought after a tragedy is ACTORS, there's probably something wrong with your brain. George Soros is probably not funding them, but even if he was, and? So Soros is helping survivors of a school shooting with their gun control cause, uhhhhh good for him I guess? But George Soros is not funding the activities and the people who say this are paranoid idiots that say Soros is behind everything. I try not to call groups of people idiots now, but I will make an exception for conspiracy nutjobs.

Alex Jones had two copyright strikes because of this. Liberals say that it would be bad if he lost his channel. I disagree. He slanders people and should be sued, perhaps constantly. Accusing school shooter survivors of being actors is slander and he should be sued. His followers are paranoid morons with guns. If there's a legal way to stop him; I say go for it. You would be doing the public a service. Someone already showed up at a pizza shop with a gun because of some whacky Hillary Clinton conspiracy theory, who's next? I believe in legal action. If YouTube by itself wants to shut him down, I wouldn't have a problem with that since he slanders people, however that means that they can take such action for any view whatsoever. (which they can anyway) Legal action is a much better way to do this.

Republicans now want to arm teachers. I am sure that giving guns to underpaid, stressed out teachers dealing with problematic students would be a great idea, why not just arm the students too? You wonder what the republicans are thinking, sounds like the wild west. Wouldn't they just aim for the teachers first? Let alone if guns are taken by a student, or a teacher snaps. This has disaster written all over it. Banning assault rifles from being sold is the only thing that is going to help in this situation. The fact is that hand guns and knives don't do as much damage. This is completely obvious!

Drug dealers and Ecstasy

 
Orange Buffoon thinks that drug dealers should be killed. This sounds like the Philippines president to me and he in my opinion is an even worse lunatic than Buffoon. Now Buffoon is echoing that lunatic. Does Orange Buffoon also want to kill the manufactures of opiods whose drugs kill about 90 people a day in the US alone? I am guessing no. They're rich. They wear suits. He only wants to kill the drug dealer across the street. If that solution worked countries wouldn't keep have to keep murdering drug dealers. They have murdered about 10,000 drug dealers and users in the Philippines and the number keeps climbing. Death doesn't seem to be a deterrent. What would help is funding treatment programmes and making drugs as safe as possible including legalization. With unregulated drugs anything can be in them.

New Zealand has recently had bad batches of Ecstasy which could be fatal. You also had bad batches of beer back in the day. If it is illegal anything can get in. Regulation of drugs would stop this. As stated before you need to fund addiction programs to combat that side of things. You also need to educate people including doctors. Doctors don't want always know the harm products like benzos can cause over the long term, I imagine this is the same for opiods.

Indictments, Shooting, Justin Trudeau

 
Muller indicated 13 people connected to Russia for interfering in the US elections. What they would do is stir up stuff online and have bots to again stir shit. As a nerd, I find this interesting. They would attack both sides of an issue, retweet fake news. The main benefactor was Orange Buffoon but they provided a tiny bit of attention to Bernie Sanders and Jill Stien. However it's clear they were giving the overwhelming support to Buffoon. The indictments are not connected to the Buffoon campaign, but that's probably coming.

Yet another school shooting happened. Many progressives are sick of commenting on gun control including myself as nothing will be done. The only point I will bring up is people on the right say that we shouldn't talk about gun control because we're apparently politicizing tragedy; this has always been an absurd position, note they don't say when gun control CAN be talked about. I bring this up because there were interviews after the fact and at least three people were advocating for gun control. So when victims are advocating for gun control, it's time to do something about it. However, that won't happen and this will just keep happening. The President says it's mental health. I am not sure he's the right messenger for that. The President has also weakened laws on people who have a mental illness getting guns. People that have mental illness also are in other countries, the difference is they don't have access to assault rifles.

Justin Trudeau corrected a woman. He told her to say peoplekind not mankind because it's more inclusive. People like Justin Trudeau allow people like Dave Rubin to completely misrepresent the left and say we're all about social issues, this is utter bullshit. The fact is Trudeau is just another neoliberal like Hillary Clinton, a person who is unserious about solving other people's problems in favour of their wealthy donors. They make things only a tiny bit better while focusing on social issues. These people are not the left, real lefties wish they would all fuck off. So saying these people represent the left is not accurate; these people are conservatives pretending to be left and frankly we should kick them out of our parties. We should have people that fight for living wages, universal college/health-care etc. Justin Trudeau like Obama was good at acting but be warned that is not a good long term strategy.
