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.

Resignation, Russia

 
Another Buffoon aide has resigned for sexual abuse allegations. I can't remember his name and don't really care. The most interesting aspect of this story is why the allegations surfaced. Some say it's a power play to get rid of a John Kelly ally and eventually John Kelly himself. He is from my understanding the more reasonable ones in the Whitehouse so if he goes grab the popcorn it'll be more insanity.

Apparently the Dutch hacked Russia and saw people literally hacking the DNC. I say apparently because this sounds too convenient. If anything is going to doubt the Russia story it's convenient facts like this. Note to everyone. DON'T TAPE PEOPLE HACKING INTO THINGS! I don't want to be regarded as a conspiracy theorist, so let's say it's true. This is yet another example of FBI and CIA incompetence. Remember the iPhone that the FBI couldn't get into and they had to get a private company to do it? Apparently you don't find the best and brightest in American intelligence. Why did the Dutch uncover this and not Uncle Sam?

Finally a top figure in US cyber security said that Russia successfully hacked the voting system of 22 states. It's largely unknown what they did. I would be very interested in what they did in swing states. Not just the voting system itself but throwing people off rolls. Perhaps a more important question is why the US allow itself to be hacked? I think that they should go back to paper ballots. Someone suggested block chain voting, I was dismissive at the time but maybe it's worth considering if an electronic system must be used. I still say paper and you can trust me as a technology enthusiast. Technology is probably not the best option.

Memo, Deep State, Stormy Daniels

 
I am not sure what to cover with this memo bullshit, because it's bullshit. Republicans freaked out that there was a memo that was supposed to clear Orange Buffoon and open a new investigation into Hillary Clinton, or something. Anyway it turns out it was written by Republicans, and basically just explains what their interpretation of the investigation is. So the memo was totally worthless.

Republicans are also going on about a secret society and a deep state after a recent text message questioned whether someone was going to a meeting of the secret society. Any normal person would interpret that as a joke, but not tinfoil hat Republicans. They think that this non existant secret society is trying to overthrow Buffoon. By the way if Dear Leader is so great, why is he allowing this to happen? Isn't he in charge of everything? (except the justice department) Is he that incompetent that he can't control his own agencies? Actually, probably. However there is no plot to overthrow him. He probably would already be in jail or assassinated if that was the case. Instead there are legitimate investigations happening to find out what went on with Russia.



Finally Farron Cussins from The Ring O Fire radio argued that the Stormy Daniels story mattered because if campaign money was used to pay her off that's a felony. While technically true campaign laws are broken all the time including by the Clintons, though I don't know if they broke them to such a serious degree. I don't think he would go down for breaking campaign laws; there's probably more viable routes legally to take him down.

Stormy Daniels

 
Orange Buffoon had an affair with a porn star named Stormy Daniels. Let me first say if I was rich I would have sex with porn stars too. If anything he should be praised for having a consential relationship. There are at least a dozen relationships when consent wasn't granted, which obviously makes them much worse. The only reason why this is news is it is with a porn star. It is nothing but sensatonism. I am covering this because part of this blog is criticizing the media. I won't go into too many further details of the story, he should not have cheated on his wife, but I am not the marriage police, i don't even like the concept of monogamyI don't care. That is between him and his wife, which already seemed to hate him before all this.

The news organization that was sitting on the story was criticized for not releasing it before the election. I however seriously doubt that it would made a difference. It was known that he committed sexual assault before the election, this is no worse, if you think that it is, you're an idiot. However since the margns were so thin in several purple states he won I guess that it is possible.

Finally he paid her off to not tell anyone but the story was released anyway by a magazine that interviewed her before the pay off occurred. Typical winning from Buffoon. People have renewed interest in the pee tape because he now has a history of paying people off to cover up sexual activity. Personally I don't think that it makes it more or less likely. Just think that it exists. Because why the fuck not?

Government shut down, Jacinda Ardern

 
One year into Buffoon's presidency, the government is shut down. I thought he was good at making deals; he's like a smart person at making deals. A very stable genius at making deals! There are people who want to see if a business negotiator would be better than politics as usual. Considering no major reforms have past congress apart from the tax cuts and the government has shut down after a year, I think you have your answer! There are people who claim Buffoon is succeeding, but what does that mean? He's succeeding at making the rich richer. Some people point to economic growth, but there was economic growth under Bush too, then after about seven years it collapsed. The same thing will happen here, do you know why? In trickle down economies when deregulation is also a factor people get greedy and take more and more risk, sooner or later it blows up in everyone's faces and they have to get a bail out. Also due to the tax cuts companies are buying back their own stock, that's called market fixing. I thought corporations were going to use tax cuts for job growth. Turns out, no! While many are boosting about bonuses, the same companies are cutting jobs. The rich are just pocketing the tax cuts. What a surprise.

Over in New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is having a baby after three months in she was pregnant before the election but found out last month. I have a different point of view than many liberals. Firstly I have no interest in people's personal lives, particularly when it comes to the royal family; I don't want to see their baby photos, wedding pictures, don't care, boring. I immediately thought of a media frenzy, and it has already happened. So that's what we have for the next few years. Secondly about Clarke being a stay at home dad, great, but wages are so low the majority can't afford to do that. So maybe Jacinda should consider that point. Also if it was any other job the employer would not be thrilled. Jacinda is lucky, especially if in a 90 day right to sack environment. However people should realize that politicians and employees are allowed to have lives. Labour should form employment law accordingly. Employers telling people what to do in their private lives is a massive problem.

Orange Buffoon, Oprah

 
Orange Buffoon called Hatti a shit hole, everyone is outraged. I think I am just going to let them be outraged for me rather than writing yet another Orange Buffoon is an insensitive prick story.

It's a never ending cycle
Buffoon is an insensitive prick.
Says something horrible
Everyone is outraged

This is fucking boring now

It's like an untrained dog who shits on the carpet, yeah that's what he does, get used to it.

The difference is a dog can be trained.

And while the media oxygen is sucked on the two billionith racist thing Buffoon said the muli billion utterly pointless wall is being considered for funding, no DACA deal, Democrates and Republicans agreed to continue spying on their citizens. For international reasons the shit hole story has some importance but there's more significant shit going on.

Oprah gave a speech and now people want her to run for president. People love Oprah, she pretty much universally liked. Let me go against popular opinion as usual. First she created TV quack doctors like Doctor Oz and Doctor Phil; one devotes over a half of his show to false information, the other allegedly gives addicts drugs and alcohol before shows. Strike one, you're out! That's enough for me to view her as incredibly sketchy. Sorry Oprah cult. She also has someone on her show telling people to stick a substance in their vagina claiming they will age slower. She also devoted a show to the Iraq war having war mongers on. You may argue she was just going towards the trend and perhaps was uneducated, but again the medical stuff is sketchy and she's not worth considering further. Additionally she has a reputation of being a-political. OK, so why do people want her as president? I keep saying that policy doesn't matter, this is just another example of it. Mike from The Humanist Report also points out the her entire thing is branding, just like the current president. She has a TV channel and Magazine named after her. She's also a billionaire, though devotes her show to hearing stories. An analyst on that is she promotes self improvement rather than fairness when it comes to economics. To me this is what religions do; never mind that your circumstances are shitty, just prey (or watch my TV show) and you will be inspired or some shit. She does give to charities, let's give her the benefit of the doubt and assume they're not complete scams like the Buffoon charities. In conclusion she promotes sketchy things and has no policy at all. A big NO for me. I probably wouldn't trust her even if she came out as being super progressive, maybe if she came out with who would be her administration. Other than that she should be dismissed.

Lorde, book

 
Following the last entry someone with obviously too much money took out a newspaper advertisement claiming Lorde and New Zealand are anti-semitic. Firstly criticizing Israel is not anti-semitism no more than criticizing Orange Buffoon is bigoted against the United States. About a hundred countries have criticized Israel on issues mainly their illegal occupation. All of them aren't anti-semitic, OK? Second if you want actual anti-semitism perhaps you should look at the White House. People with nazi ties are in the current administration let alone former chief strategist Steve Bannon. The dear leader called people on both sides very fine people in response to a nazi rally and previously retweeted nazi propaganda. Look at your own fucking country before making bullshit claims.

Michael Wolf has a new book out. If you haven't heard of Michael Wolf before, that's okay, nobody has. Basically he wrote a book about how everybody in the white house thinks the Dear Leader is stupid and crazy. He was able to get quotes from the majority of the aides and they all said the same way thing. I don't know how much I will cover this as the fact Orange Buffoon is stupid is a running theme of this blog; but again everyone in the White House thinks so. We know that Rex Tillison called him a moron and there has been countless stories on how he cannot pay attention to anything. They have to give him information in 140 characters and mention he's great. He's a complete idiot, I have maintained this all along. If you think he's a secret genius and it's all an act, you're possibly as dumb as him. This book also reveals that his wife was crying on the election night, but not tears of joy. One of his sons looked like he had seen a ghost when he realized his dad could actually win. I go back and forth with whether it was a serious campaign or not, I think that I am back in the not camp. I was also amused by the fact Rupert Murdoch called him a fucking idiot. Buffoon's response, he's like a smart person and a very stable genius. He also says that his greatest asset is his mental stability. Well, I am convinced. Who the fuck says these things? Well apparently Orange Buffoon. If if was me, I think that I would resign. I'd probably resign in embarrassment six months ago, but I'm not completely crazy and wouldn't do 90% of the shit he does! Seriously, he should take his money and fuck off. Perhaps the best thing the Buffoon family could do is get Orange into care and play the role of the caring family. They probably don't have the collective intelligence to do this, so their brand is fucked. Do I feel bad? No I don't.

Taylor Swift, Lorde

 
I don't like Taylor Swift! I do like her music but as a person and corporate identity she's a shitty person. Here is an example: A random website labelled her as being pro white supremacy because she hasn't spoken out against it; a ridiculous argument on its face. Her legal team went on and issued take down notices. Firstly she also complains about royalties on spotify but if she really wanted to acquire more money perhaps she should stop paying lawyers to do stupid things like this. Secondly obviously she has not learned of the Streisand effect. Nobody knew of such blog posts until she got her lawyers on to it. If it was me I would have just sent a tweet: We're all equal, down with white supremacy! The fact that she couldn't do that... Well maybe she's pro white supremacy. Maybe under that long blond hair there is a Swastika tattoo! I am asking to be sued, I need the publicity.

Lorde refuses to go to Israel because its government is oppressing the Palestinians. I am split on the issue. I absolutely believe in sanctions, but sanctions work only if the items are valuable. Sorry Lorde but you're not that valuable. I also note that she is punishing fans in Israel that do not agree with the government. She could quite as easily do the same with the US over meddling in world affairs, fueling wars etc. I expect that would hurt her bottom line more. What she should do instead is go to Israel and promote peace, and if she felt that strongly write a song about the situation and launch it there. I have a history of going to Australia and making fun of its political figures, so if I was in her situation that is something I'd consider doing.

Justice Democrats and Cenk Uygur

 
Cenk Uygur and Kyle Kulinski have resigned from the board of Justice Democrats; a movement designed to get corporate money out of the Democrat Party. This is a massive fuck up by almost everyone involved. Blogs surfaced of Cenk written in 2000 calling girls whores and trannies and saying they're genetically flawed because they didn't want to have sex with him. This was in 2000; since this time he changed from being conservative to a liberal and now runs a show people probably accused of being too feminist friendly, well by people I mean assholes but that's beside the point. His show does hire one in particular "fringe feminist" that says stupid shit such as a wink is like sexual assault and two men shouldn't say disgusting things about women over email, ok but you're living in a fantasy world if you think that you can police such thoughts. My point is Cenk has evolved and is a feminist and his TheYoungTurks network also echos this. I am a feminist too, but some people are utterly ridiculous, like with any group; there's utterly ridiculous disability advocates too. We're going off topic!

Cenk's blogs and tweets were reckless and stupid, but some people evolve. He would tweet nothing like that now.

Now we get to the Justice Democrats. First they created this entire drama. If I was in their position, it's an open question whether I would have done the same. Honestly considering it was 18 years ago and he doesn't think like that now. I would have solely weighed the public backlash. If I don't think it was significant, there would be no way I am asking for resignations.

Kyle resigned and that was fucking stupid. He better hope the movement doesn't get hijacked. I would have stayed on and ensured the movement stayed on track. Then again would the media dig up some crazy thing he said in the past too? He is standing by Cenk by doing this, but strategically this was a terrible move.

Two main lessons here

1. I was right not to go into politics or get too famous. I constantly say crazy shit and this is deliberate. I would rather continue making technology and productions/music than fuck around with the media. Other people are welcome to the fame; the media can piss off. I'd rather get rich with software. People point to the president to say people like honesty but he lost by 3 million votes. Also he's psychologically incapable of honestly, but let's forget he exists for the remainder of this post.

2. Keep control of your own movements otherwise they'll screw you. I have always held on to ownership of what I create, this does have its downsides but keeping control is good.

I do question the motivation; was were the blog posts just an excuse to get rid of him? I hope not. Also who's behind the revealing of information? Was it a right wing troll who tries to get people fired? Or did it come from the Establishment Left.

Finally I don't endorsed the blogs or tweets but let me be clear if it was just Cenk complaining that he doesn't get laid I'd give him a pass and would be much harsher on the Justice Democrats. He was probably just bullshitting with the genetically flawed stuff but if not he definitely doesn't think this way now, the language was also extreme. Saying it's an ocean of tits and he wants to swim, sorry but if you're offended you can fuck off, I don't see this as anything more than guy talk. The language at the beginning is more the issue. He was young and stupid. It's a shame he was punished for something nearly two decades old. Watching him for five years I know he's a different person. If I was him I would just find more strategic ways of doing things.

Viral video about bullying

 
Some kid made an anti bullying video that went viral, then it turns out that his mum is a white supremacist. I will use this story to explain how stupid humanity is. First point: There are millions of bullying victims across the globe but people gave $51,000 to this kid. People can do what they want with their money, but I find this weird and stupid. There are probably numerous victims at their local school, but they gave money to this random person on the internet. Senseless! Humans are visual people, if they can't see it, they don't care. It's the same with stand up comedy, people don't care that I spent my entire working life programming; they only like the posts when I mention that I am doing stand up. Even though the whole reason that I am about to do stand up comedy is that I built software to pause lines. People only recognize me as a stand up comedian. You could adapt use climate change as an example; for years people have been denying it and still do, but less people are denying it due to major disasters. This is humanity's problem; it is obsessed with visual things and celebrities. Another example with comedy is people recognize characters like Sheldon Cooper as the actor, but the character wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the writers and producers. People need a face otherwise they are not interested. This is humanity's weakness. Extending this to politics, people are more comfortable voting for candidates that they feel like they have a beer with for example George W Bush or John Key in New Zealand. In New Zealand they changed the Labour leader three months out from an election; it was an instant 7 percentage point boost. as a policy wonk and screen writer this is a bit depressing, but facts are facts. Humanity largely is stupid and only care about what's directly in front of them.

As for people giving to a random white supremacist family; that's on them for sending money to a person based on one video. AngryAussie pointed out that this has similarities to Kony 2012. Everyone was happily raising money until it turns out the guy went bonkers. You don't always know who is behind the cause. If people care so much about bullying may I suggest again stopping it in their own neighborhood.
