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.


Roy Moore was the Republican nominee in Alabama for a contested U.S. Senate seat, had run multiple campaigns for decades (with nothing coming to light). The left hates him with a blind seething passion for his positions against Gay Marriage, and for the 10 commandments, and for switching from their party. So WaPo timed a hit piece to do the most damage it could to him, and to help the DNC. I wouldn't vote for a Judge that puts his ego above the law (as it appears Moore has), but the important question is whether the allegations are true, or just true enough for WaPo's quality standards.
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.
Sanchez.jpg
The anecdote about Bob Dornan and Loretta “Dirty" Sanchez, and how illegal aliens stole an election in my district. Which is why when folks deny that it happens or that it matters, I just shake my head. I saw it first hand.
JamesDamore.jpg

This is the story of Media Lies, Google Hypocrisy, and what happens when someone (James Damore) decides to tell the truth in Progressive America, "Burn the witch, after all, he said the same thing that science, common sense, and Google's own lawyers say in court!" Google encourages people to speak their minds, then fires them if they don't say what they want, then claims they're still all about free speech, just not THAT! In the end, Google proved they're not only an echo chamber, but one with blindfolds, guns and itchy trigger fingers.

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.
Licensing is a protection racket: the government takes away your right to something, then leases it back to you for a fee. Fuck with that, and the mafia will kill you, the government will give you life in prison (with no possibility of parole). That just happened to Ross Ulbricht for creating Silk Road (eBay for the DarkNet).
The basics are that when the DNC invented the trope that John Podesta's email was hacked by Russians (despite little evidence of that), a story that was already getting buried by the news media was that:
  • Wikileaks had already gone on the record to explain it wasn't a hacker but a leaker inside the DNC that was his source, and that leaker was a disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter, disgusted with how the DNC had colluded with the Hillary Campaign to undermine the election process.
  • It had been confirmed by one of Julian Assange's associates who said he'd picked up the file in DC
  • And Julian pointed out that while he can not name sources, it's a dangerous business, as the murder of Seth Rich showed -- a DNC insider with sympathies for Bernie Sanders, who may have had contact with Wikileaks

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.


Hillary Clinton

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 (that would be a much shorter list), the intent is just to show the pattern of scandals that her detractors recognized and her proponents ignore. If you want the pro-Hillary spin just listen to her, the NYT, CNN or MSNBC, they carry her water for her.

Bill Gates

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.

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".

Barack Obama

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. I don't care how people vote, or who they support. I do care about correcting revisionist history. This isn't meant as a balanced piece to show what good he's accomplished as a politicians or person (there was some, though it is a much shorter list), if you want fawning puff pieces, read/watch the water carriers in the left-wing media. This is meant to counter-balance those who claimed or tolerate his claims that the administration was scandal free. The full list of scandals for the Community Organizer in Chief sits around 800 , I'm just listing some of the lowlights.

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. He focused power so that he could abuse it, corrupt, vindictive, liar (betrayed most that trusted him). He ignored the Constitution and his oath of office, many of the countries worst shames happened under his watch (and by his hand/guidance). According to those closest to him, he was a lousy diplomat, a poor administrator, not scholarly, nor thoughtful, well read or even bright. He was people smart (manipulator) that enjoyed playing people/groups off of each other. Other than that, he was likable, mercurial, and aloof.

Donald Trump

TrumpLogo.png
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.

Polemic Democrats

Here's a list of abrasive and almost always wrong Democrats that are doing everything they can to divide the nation and champion falsehoods to their base. You don't get to pretend that you care about the truth or the tone when it's Donald Trump, then support people like this: Alexandria Ocasio-CortezBarack ObamaBernie SandersChris MatthewsChuck SchumerCory BookerDan RatherDiane FeinsteinDonna BrazileElizabeth WarrenEric SwalwellHillary ClintonJim AcostaJohn KerryKamala HarrisMaxine WatersNancy PelosiStacey AbramsTed Kennedy
