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.

👤 Polemics are people who make or magnify their reputations by misrepresenting facts for political gain.

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

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

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

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

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

My Grandfather once told me back in about 1979. "Richard Nixon was a bastard, but a great President. Jimmy Carter is a good man, but a lousy fucking President. 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 an honest guy, so they didn't understand him and couldn't work with him. 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.

Robert Malthus

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 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 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

A list of articles on Trump, his scandals (real and imagined). My goal isn't to cheerlead or slam, but I am anti-establishment and have the most interest in the parts of the story that the media/left has omitted, and giggle at cry-bullies getting their comeuppance. That's probably too much nuance for many, as anything but rabid attacks make many think I'm a Trump lover. While I wish he was a better behaved champion and didn't get in the mud with the pigs, but if he didn't, he'd be Mitt Romney and he'd likely lose. So they despise him for doing what they do back to them. I don't like either of them, but I like the one fighting for individuals more than the ones fighting to oppress them.

👤 A list of people that all played the victim card (or had it played for them). That's not to say they weren't victims, but the stories told about them (originally) were far from the whole truth.

Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman -
A non-racist latino community-watch guy responds to being mounted, beaten and having his head bounced off the cement by shooting and killing 17 year old, 5'11", tattooed, gold-grilled, drugged up, MMA fight-club teen that ambushed him, because Zimmerman made the mortal offense of not liking a thug casing houses in his neighborhood in the rain.

The media and left spin it as Saint Trayvon (the honor student), showing him when he was 12, was killed for wearing a hoodie in a white neighborhood, while getting skittles for his sick brother. That's a lot better than showing the gangsta thug at his true age, and explaining he had drug ingredients and was stoned.

Alton Sterling -
A member of the bloods gang with a lengthy and violent rap sheet, and deadbeat dad, is arrested for illegally selling bootleg DVD's, when he resists/struggles and goes for his gun. He's warned to stop moving, but he struggles anyways and is shot multiple times in what can only be described as a service to the community. The race hucksters try to spin it as a story of an innocent getting shot by the cops for no reason, and the gullible gobble it down.

Micah Xavier Johnson - Black Lives Matter member and part of other black power organizations (including Black Panthers), goes out and shoots 16 people (killing 5 cops), to get cops/whites back for the fake injustices of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. The press got the gun wrong (not assault rifle), and downplayed his associations with BLM, pretending their agitation had nothing to do with it.

Alfred Olango Shooting - Alfred Olango was a Ugandan refugee living in El Cajon are of San Diego. Alfred was a repeat drug dealer, drunk driver, who illegally owned a firearm, and otherwise repeat felon with mental issues. Police were called to the scene of a disturbance where Alfred was walking erratically into traffic, and causing a ruckus. When police approached him, he quickly pulled a large vape pen (3" long silver, with a 4" case) from his pocket, got in a shooting stance while pointing it at a cop, who returned fire. Alfred's sister claimed cops killed his brother for no reason, and the media played along, fostering outrage and violent protests. This later led to an assault on a Trump Supporter for filming a protest while wearing a MAGA hat.

Breonna Taylor - On March 13th, in Louisville, Kentucky Breonna Taylor (26) was shot in the crossfire, when her boyfriend shot at cops issuing a search warrant for her criminal activity. Breonna's ex-boyfriend (Jamarcus Glover) was wanted for dealing drugs and Breonna was a suspect in the case (Breonna had been handling the money, had bailed Jamarcus out of Jail, multiple times, was named in that warrant, and had been witnessed running packages to the place of dealing). Had she survived, she might have been indicted, and the cops had justification to investigate her. All evidence is that she would have been killed in the same situation had she been white, asian or latino -- so BLM, DNC, Hollywood and the media sensationalized the "racial injustice", and pretended this drug dealer was a pillar of the black community. They own the violence based on duping the gullible or inciting the evil.

Eric Garner -
Media meme: Innocent, generous, congenial, "neighborhood peacemaker", father of six children (grandfather of three), was attacked, choked out, and killed by the evil NYPD for the crime of walking while black as part of "stop and frisk".

Truth: Stop and frisk was ended long ago because it was too effective. Tobacco smuggler (selling illegal untaxed cigarettes), and repeat violent felon (30 arrests including assault and grand larceny), was in poor health and resisting arrest. He was on bail for smuggling and illegal selling, driving without a license, marijuana possession, identity theft/fraud (false impersonation), and that's what the cops were taking him in for. He didn't die of Daniel Pantaleo's chokehold, he died in the ambulance that the police called for him, after had a heart attack violently fighting with the cops. Either his life was given up over his own stupidity, or over the lefts war on tobacco. The race baiters blamed a racist system, instead of admitting any truth or culpability by Eric Garner, or the law they supported that empowered the cops to arrest him in the fist place.

Henry Louis Gates -
Innocent Harvard professor was "arrested for being black", by racist cops doing racial profiling. Was actually just a cranky professor, back from a trip, breaking into his own home, when neighbors called the cops. The cops had no way of racial profiling this event, and just reacted to Gates angry over-reaction to cops showing up. Then a nothing event was turned into a national FakeNews story, by an over eager media, race baiting opportunistic community organizers, and racist President. That set the tone for 8 years of Obama, with a racial angle on every criminal act.

Jacob Blake.jpg
Jacob Blake - On May 3rd, in Kenosha, Wisconsin Jacob Blake (29) is shot for being a violent thug resisting arrest, but a viral doctored video convinces ignorant bigots that a repeat felon is a pillar of the black community, and the police shot him for no good reason. Democrats and their BLM allies sensationalize the "injustice", and violent riots happen for weeks.

Keith Lamont Scott - Some dishonest folks (like Robert Reich) tried to make it sound like a black officer, approaching a black suspect, for suspicious activity and waiving around a gun, was a case of racism / police abuse. It's called doing your job.

Michael Brown -
A stoned thug strong arm robs a liquor store, jaywalks, verbally and then physically assaults a cop for getting asked about his behavior, he goes for the cops gun and gets shot in the hand. He runs. When the cop tells him to freeze, he turns around and charges and tries to tackle the cop and gets shot. The far left, media and black community starts a fictional conspiracy about a gentle giant getting shot for no reason, with his hands in the air while saying "don't shoot". This starts the BLM movement among the truly ignorant.

OJ Simpson -
Poor OJ claims he was cleaning his knife when it went off.

There was never one shred of evidence that O.J. was being framed or people wanted to convict him because he was black. There was a lot of evidence that he got special treatment because he was a celebrity.

The only racism involved was by his lawyer trying to create doubt to distract from his clients obvious guilt.

Philando Castile -
Philando Castile (a Crips gang member?) is pulled over as an armed robbery suspect (and with 86 misdemeanors he wasn't exactly saintly). At some point he reaches for his gun (he has a conceal carry permit), and he was shot. The girlfriend hams it up for her phone camera claiming "why'd you shoot him" (like that's the first thing you'd think to do if your significant other was shot), and the cop can be heard saying, "I told him not to reach for it", and the video shows the gun resting on Castile's leg. There's an investigation ongoing into whether the shooting was justified: but the race baiters went off half cocked before the info was in, and the family created 3 different "Go Fund Me" campaigns to milk the opportunity.

Rodney King -
There were many cops on the scene (of all races). Rodney King was a drugged out idiot, with a history of violence and crimes, that sped away from the police (which is a major threat to the community), then wouldn't submit to being arrested, he attacked the police, got tazed (electrically stunned) and still charged them again -- so the cops beat him to the ground, and then told him to lay down and submit to being arrested. He would NOT submit to being arrested and got up and charged again (and again), so the cops beat the holy hell out of him. Which is exactly what the cops would have done to a big dumb white guy, or an Asian, or Hispanic, or native american and so on. But because he was black, some stupidly claimed that this was racism.

Sandra Bland -
Obnoxious activist (BLM), with mental health issues, has multiple encounters with cops, and has such histrionics over minor pull-over, that she gets arrested and hangs herself in prison -- which sets off the conspiracy loons that another innocent black princess was murdered for driving while black and covered up.

Valerie Plame -
Any media outlet that reports the fraud that "Plame was illegally and intentionally outted by the Bush administration as retaliation for Joe attacking them", is getting every fact over what happened wrong, long after they should know better. The Valerie Plame affair can be summed up: her husband (Joe Wilson) drew attention with some discredited articles, Novak found out about her in a book called "Who's Who in America", since she wasn't an active agent: no crime was committed, and why no one was prosecuted. Joe's claims showed that Saddam TRIED to secure yellowcake for his WMD program, which proved the opposite of what he thought. And Joe, Valerie and the media perpetuated the lie that they were somehow wronged, and the rubes buy in.

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.
