This section is not comprehensive analysis of all the complexities of a persons life, but more the points most often brushed over (the counter-balances to the myth-making/propaganda). So these are not meant to be read in isolation, but as complimentary aspects on people (or issues about them) that are on the road that's less travelled.

Ad hominem's don't change the validity of an argument, but it does hint at their biases or agendas.


Betsy DeVos

DeVos1.jpg

Democrats despise DeVos from the day she was nominated, and not a single Democrat voted for her to be confirmed (voting against confirmation is not supposed to be political, but whether they are morally unfit for office). She was an accomplished Woman that believed parents should have more control over school choice than government bureaucrats: that made her public enemy #1.

Bill Gates is a Genius

Gates.jpg
Is Bill Gates a genius? After all Microsoft was one of the world's great success stories. I don't think he's dumb - he was certainly smart and motivated enough to take advantages of opportunities that fell into his lap. And he was very industrious and competitive. But if you put 100 motivated people in situation, I bet 30 could have been wildly successful, and a few could have been more successful and less jerky. That to me is well below the bar of genius, but YMMV.

Milo Yiannopoulos

Milo.png
Milo Yiannopoulos is a flamboyant gay conservative tech-journalist, entrepreneur, public speaker (whose Dad is Jewish), with a penchant for Black partners. The left calls him a racist, homophobic anti-semite hate-monger, based on his pet causes and perpetual attacks against: political correctness, fascist-feminism, and Social Justice Warriors attacks on him, free speech, and anyone that doesn't agree with them.

Steve Bannon

Bannon.jpg

Steve Bannon is either a homophobic, racist, anti-semite, xenophobe (if you believe the left). Or an accomplished naval officer, with two Masters Degrees, an investment banking background, an unapologetic pro-Israel and pro-liberty CEO of Breitbart.com (if you believe the right). I have found no evidence of the former, though there's certainly more complexity and some things to not love about his political positions. From what I've read, he's not the caricature I usually hear of on NPR or in most of the media.

Main article: Polemics

Voters get the democracy they deserve, or demand through votes. While there are certainly a few Republicans/Conservative voices I'll add to this list, there's a reason the majority come from the other side of the aisle. I suspect it's because "the left" is younger and better at rationalizing bad behavior (or avoiding mirrors), but whatever the cause, if you support any of these people you don't get to claim the moral high ground on rhetoric.



Barack Obama

Obama.jpg
A list of issues, articles and scandals that pertain to Barack Obama. Again, the point isn't to be fair here: it's to be honest. The Press and left can carry his water and play fanboy's for all the good things he did. I'm fine with that. This is just to remind the fans (short for fanatics) when they're going too far. That Saint Obama might not be quite as righteous as many of the delusional revisionism about him, that I've heard.

John Oliver

JohnOliver.jpg

John Oliver is Jon Stewards perpetually outraged successor, but it feels like he's Jon's British Socialist cousin -- which isn't a big stretch as sympathy for statism seems to run deep in that family. It's their schtick: look at everything in the world as if you're channelling Mao or Michael Moore, if either had an occasionally amusing sense of humor. They're funny, if you don't think too deeply of their policies and consequences. But if you do, they're just Patch Adams telling crippled jokes to amputees at Walter Reed hospital.

Madeleine Albright

AlbrightDrag.png

I must say, after seeing her speak and reading multiple things by her (books, articles, etc), Madeleine Albright (Marie Jana Korbelová) is a vicious, small minded and fundamentally dishonest person. IMHO, of course. She served under Bill Clinton as the Secretary of State (1997-2001), and is one of the few that served under him, without that literally being true. I can't say I blame him, dishonest people are a turn-off. This goes into a few things about her.

Hillary Clinton

ClintonUntouchables.jpeg

Here's a brief summary of Hillary's scandals (with links to more on each of them). This isn't meant as a balanced piece to show what good she's accomplished as a politicians or person (though I suspect that would be a much, much shorter list), the intent is just to show what the pattern of scandals and questionable behavior that her detractors recognized and her proponents ignored. If you want the pro-Hillary spin just listen to her, read the NYT, or watch CNN or MSNBC, they run water-carrying puff pieces on her all day long.

Senator Joe McCarthy

BlacklistedByHistory.jpg
The full title is like reading the back cover. Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His fight Against America's Enemies by M. Stanton Evans. But it's fascinating, well researched, vivisection of the myths and propaganda that altered what happened and why, in the public's mind. It turns out McCarthy's name should remain synonymous with libelous witch hunts, not because he was the perpetrator of them, but the victim of it.

Kim Jong-un

ThisTall.jpg
Sometimes all your choices are bad ones. Letting Mini-Mao terrorize East Asia sure isn't making the world a better place for our children. Confrontation may or may not. So the choice is deal with a delusional little fucktard with fission weapons and no good means of deployment now, or deal with a little delusional fucktard with fusion weapons and ICBM's later. Seems like kicking the can down the road is how we got in this predicament. 70 years of appeasement hasn't made the world a better place, it's only made the threat much bigger.

Abraham Lincoln

Abe.jpg
My interest in Honest Abe, was always about the darker parts of his history, that the High School History books skimmed or skipped. People are complex, so the more I heard this caricature of the Greatest American President, the more I wanted to know his humanity. And it turns out that he was a racist orator (just less racist than his contemporaries), with a an ego large enough to get over half a million men murdered (more Americans died in the civil war, than in WWII), and freeing the slaves was a vindictive byproduct of the war his election victory started.

Those are the parts I focus on, the myths about Lincoln, the Civil War and Slavery.

Richard Nixon

Nixon.jpeg
It reminds me of what my Grandfather once told me back in about 1979. "Richard Nixon was an immoral bastard, but a great President. Jimmy Carter is a moral man, but a lousy fucking President. See, all politicians are corrupt assholes, so they didn't like Nixon but they understood and could work with him, because he was one of them. But Jimmy Carter was a nice honest guy, so they couldn't trust him to be corrupt, they didn't understand him, thus he couldn't anything done. You need a corrupt asshole to get anything done in Washington".

Robert Malthus

TOC.jpg
We often get dire warnings about Malthusian Catastrophes, Ehrlich's population bombs and how individuals can't be trusted to manage shared interests. We need government to protect us from ourselves. History shows the opposite: individuals form small governments for common interests better than big governments, unless big government stops them.

James Mitose

James-Mitose.jpg

James Mitose was an Japanese American that learned the hard way about our legal system and how the public views Martial Artists. He is well known in some Martial Arts circles, because he brought Kenpo/Kempo over to Hawaii and the mainland from Japan, and is one of the important Masters of the art.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

FDR-button.png
FDR is taught as a liberal caricature of a great man and President. But most of the myths around him, are just that: myths. He was a man of some charm, with few strengths and many flaws.

FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) is almost universally lauded in our Liberal History Books as one of the great Presidents of the Century. The half-truths and clichés include: man of the People, saved the country from the great depression, progressive policies, idealism and integrity, guided us through WWII, saved not the nation and entire world from tyranny, and so on.

There are some truths buried in the caricature, but there's an awful lot of lies of omission and commission. I'm going to focus on the darker side of FDR, not because that's all there was to this complex man, but because we should know the bad and the good to judge for ourselves, not just be force-fed the propaganda version.

Donald Trump

A list of articles on Trump, his scandals (real and imagined), and topics that touch him. My goal isn't to cheerlead or slam, just focus on the parts of the story that the media or left often omitted or got wrong, to counter-balance the coastal progressive bias/disinformation.
