Truths Ta-Nehesi Coates and the 1619 Project Do Not Want You To Know

Untitled.001

See ta-nehisicoates.com for more lies and propaganda. The brilliant Dr. Coates can dissemble with the best of them.

I’ve personally never heard a credible case for reparations. Reparations for slavery is a scam. It is another example of the true goal of the Socialists and their divisive inclusivity. The American Left simply desires to vilify descendants in America of Western European origin and “Whiteness”.

I find it interesting that today’s racial activists have focused on the White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. Most of the Americas went untouched by England. The majority of slaves and the majority of the Americas was colonized by Spain. Somehow, these LatinX activists forget that the Spanish were the most heinous and brutal slave power in the Western Hemisphere. The Spanish committed genocide and murdered all who failed to adapt to Spanish culture and religion. This is why so many in Latin America are Catholic and why so many of the peoples of the Americas speak exclusively the Spanish language. Spain murdered the local cultures out of the locals leaving only the Spanish culture in place. Despite, this violence, Spain and “Latin-ness” escapes their condemnation of the LatinX activist community. They simply hate White people. Spain was so successful in destroying the African and the pre- Colonial Americas’ Indigenous people’s sense of self that most identify more with “Latin-ness” or being Spanish and speaking Spanish than they do with any identity that predated their ancestors enslavement. Yet, Latin American activists firmly believe that America, the United States, and England were the cause of all of their problems. To the Latin American, they’ve forgotten Spain existed. The White European, especially the English, are the great villain. If they were to stop and look inwards, they would come to understand that the Spanish culture which they celebrate is the great villain of their existence.

Yet, these activists, like Coates, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib  are not looking for truth. They need a villain. They must have a villain. They have chosen the White Man and “Whiteness”.

Without a villain, they can have no victims. Without victims, they cannot survive.

Until we stop creating victims, it’s gonna be really hard for America to survive.

If we do not stop creating victims and, instead, start empowering people, America will . not survive.

Reparations is just another victim scam of the Left. It’s another way for a few to enrich themselves from the many. It’s another way for lifetime “public servants” to continue to become multimillionaires.


Whilst the poor get poorer, the Public Servants get richer and richer.

The Truth of White Privilege

hillary-clintonI broke the code.

I’ve figured out “White Privilege.”

White Privilege is the arrogance of descendants of Leftist European Persons, having decimated, colonized, raped, pillaged and conquered descendants of the poor of the European and American Continents as well as the African, Asian and Arab lands affirming that the world is exactly as it should be and arrogating to themselves the right and responsibility to ensure the status quo. These Elitists then use all means in their power to ostracize any and all other nations and/or peoples who use their own tactics against them and/or others.

White Privilege is an American-Euro Leftist Tactic of domination. It is a means of Leftist Socialists continuing to prey upon others of differing and opposing political, religious, cultural or racial makeup from themselves.

White Privilege is self righteous hypocrisy intended to keep the poor and “colored” people’s of the planet from rising up and throwing off the Slavers and Statists.

The perfect exemplars of this attitude are Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid and Barack “I’m Half White” Obama. Also, see The Bush Dynasty, Dick Cheney, Ronald Reagan.

Is “Wage Theft” a thing? Wages and the Corporate War Machine

expendables

 

Wage theft. Hmmm

 

Wage theft is the illegal withholding of wages or the denial of benefits that are rightfully owed to an employee. Wage theft, particularly from low wage legal or illegal immigrant workers, is common in the United States.[1] Wage theft can be conducted through various means such as: failure to pay overtime, minimum wage violations, employee misclassification, illegal deductions in pay, working off the clock, or not being paid at all. These violated rights have been guaranteed to workers in the United States since 1938 by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

 

Purposefully depressing wages so as to drive up stock prices and CEO bonuses?  While fully realizing that the whole idea behind the free market is to make profit, I can’t help but wonder why it seems to be anathema to actually pay employees a wage that allows them to live and DREAM….to experience life and find enjoyment.  As opposed to what we have now.  And what we have now are corporations who seek to pay the LEAST to their employees for the maximum output.  Corporations expect an employee to give them their all. Corporations seek, in exchange, to pay employees as little as possible while remaining “competitive” in the job market.

This is one factor that is driving the Education bubble. Millions of over educated idiots in debt up to their ears because employers expect a college degree in order for one to be hired to work at jobs that require no such education.

That could be “wage theft.”

Or it could be something else entirely.

Technically, every job that I’ve had requires a 4 year degree. However, I’m great at building networking relationships and bold enough to tell employers that I am better than most of their “degreed” employees. I then set to prove that I am and, in most, cases accomplish this.
I have held several jobs that “require” a Masters and prior experience as a Major or Colonel in the Military. Yet, I have outperformed many of the folks who actually meet these requirements.  I can’t say that I’m a genius or all that special.

I believe that corporations expect too much and give too little in return.  Making matters worse is the US public education system is not designed to produce leaders or trail blazers. Nearly all of American brilliance forges ahead despite of and not because of the education system of America.   It’s all a sham designed to produce fodder for the Corporate War Machine.

This is my opinion. That is all.

The Pledge of Ignorance

The Pledge of Ignorance

These children had no idea to what they were pledging allegiance. What Five, Ten or Thirteen year old could or would? They’d have to be wise beyond their years and, if that were the case, they’d never pledge allegiance to a flag.

Pledge to know, protect and uphold the Constitution? Perhaps.

Pledging allegiance to a symbol that at any moment and to any person could mean anything. I think not.

This does not take into account the fact that the pledge was authored by a socialist. Nor does it take into account “GoD” being later added in order that children may be coopted forcibly into the Christian religion.

This in a state that is supposedly opposed to socialism and is supposed to be a Nation opposed to religious establishment or preference. The United States Bill of Rights guarantees Freedom of Religion. Even the founding fathers were fans of a multiplicity of religious belief in our nation.

“The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for giving to Mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation…All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship. It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection, should demean themselves as good citizens;” wrote George Washington.

“And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors.”- Thomas Jefferson

“I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church. Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all.”- Thomas Paine

[He] sais “neither Pagan nor Mahamedan [Muslim] nor Jew ought to be excluded from the civil rights of the Commonwealth because of his religion.”
 — Thomas Jefferson, quoting John Locke, 1776


“If they are good workmen, they may be of Asia, Africa, or Europe. They may be Mahometans [Muslims], Jews or Christian of an[y] Sect, or they may be Atheists.” George Washington

The Founders of this Nation were accepting of all peoples. They found no need for a pledge to the flag under which they fought for Independence from Britain.

Yet, somehow, 200 years removed, Americans find themselves in need of a test, a pledge for citizenship.

The founder likewise accepted all persons as newcomers to this nation. Yet, today, we want no part of new peoples who are escaping poverty and destitution, despotism and tyranny. Today’s American is too good for the immigrant, too fearful of the immigrant, too greedy to share of their bounty.

I dare say that both the Founders of this Nation and the GoD whom Christians worship would be ashamed of these Americans.

But, pledge away, simple people. Pledge away. And pray that your GoD is not real. For if this GoD of the Christian Bible is real, surely there is another plague, another great flood, another calamity heading your way.

The pity is that you’ll drag me along with you. Oh, iniquitous, prideful fools.

Americans United for Separation of Everything and State

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all.
We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”

“The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.”

“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.”

“It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.”

“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race?”

–Frederic Bastiat

“The instant formal government is abolished, society begins to act. A general association takes place, and common interest produces common security.”

–Thomas Paine

“I believe that all government is evil and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.”

“The kind of man who demands that government enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic.”

–H.L. Mencken

“It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right.”

“Law never made men a whit more just.”

–Henry David Thoreau

“Force is the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism.”

“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”

–Thomas Jefferson

“If man is not fit to govern himself, how can he be fit to govern someone else?”

–James Madison

“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for yourself.”

–unknown

“I let go of the law, and people become honest. I let go of economics, and people become prosperous. I let go of religion, and people become serene. I let go of all desire for the common good, and the good becomes common as grass. When the will to power is in charge, the higher the ideals, the lower the results.”

–Lao Tzu

“The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”

“A government is the most dangerous threat to man’s rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.”

“Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.”

“Individual rights are the means of subordinating society to moral law.”

“There can be no such thing, in law or in morality, as actions forbidden to an individual but permitted to a mob.”

–Ayn Rand

“Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet deprecate agitation, are men who want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the roar of its many waters.”

–Frederick Douglass

“Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.”

–Plato

“The triumph of persuasion over force is the sign of a civilized society.”

–Mark Skousen

“The society that puts equality before freedom will end up with neither.”

–Milton Friedman

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain–that it has either authorized such a government as we have had or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.”

–Lysander Spooner

“The measure of the state’s success is that the word ‘anarchy’ frightens people, while the word ‘state’ does not.”

–Joseph Sobran

Health Care, Socialism, Democracy and President Obama

https://i1.wp.com/www.getreligion.org/wp-content/photos/barack_obama2.jpg

Socialism refers to various theories of economic organization advocating public or direct worker ownership and administration of the means of production and allocation of resources, and a society characterized by equal access to resources for all individuals with an egalitarian method of compensation. In Marxist theory, socialism is a transitional phase between capitalism and communism characterized by unequal distribution of wealth and compensation according to work done. [1][2][3] Contrary to popular belief, socialism is not a political system; it is an economic system distinct from capitalism.

Forerunners of communist ideas existed in antiquity and particularly in the 18th and early 19th century France, with thinkers such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the more radical Gracchus Babeuf. Radical egalitarianism then emerged as a significant political power in the first half of 19th century in Western Europe. In the world shaped by the Industrial Revolution and the French Revolution, the newly established political left included many various political and intellectual movements, which are the direct ancestors of today’s communism and socialism – these two then newly minted words were almost interchangeable at the time – and of anarchism or anarcho-communism.

Capitalism typically refers to an economic and social system in which the means of production (also known as capital) are privately controlled; labor, goods and capital are traded in a market; profits are distributed to owners or invested in new technologies and industries; and wages are paid to labor.

Democracy is a system of government in which either the actual governing is carried out by the people governed (direct democracy), or the power to do so is granted by them (as in representative democracy). The term is derived from the Greek δημοκρατία (dēmokratía (info)), “popular government”,[1] which was coined from δῆμος (dêmos), “people” and κράτος (krátos), meaning “power” in the middle of the fifth-fourth century BC to denote the political systems then existing in some Greek city-states, notably Athens following a popular uprising in 508 BC.[2]

In political theory, democracy describes a small number of related forms of government and also a political philosophy. Even though there is no specific, universally accepted definition of ‘democracy’,[3] there are two principles that any definition of democracy includes, equality and freedom.[4] These principles are reflected by all citizens being equal before the law, and having equal access to power.[5] Additionally, all citizens are able to enjoy legitimized freedoms and liberties, which are usually protected by a constitution.[6][7]

Technically, Obama was/is engaging in a socialist act when he purchased majority shares of several organizations (banks, car manufacturing, etc).  We shall see in due time whether that was a wise act or something less.  It may have been the action that put the economy back on chart.  It may have been wasted money.  Time will reveal it’s truths.

Many in America are comparing a Political Theory with an Economic Theory.  It’s apples and oranges.  One can be both Socialist and Democratic.  One can be both Capitalist and Democratic.  One can not be a pure Socialist and engage in Capitalism or vice versa.  Though China is proving that one can be both Communist and Capitalist right before our eyes or perhaps they are simply oligarchic capitalists.

When someone states that Obama is Socialist that does not preclude him from being Democratic in political system preference.

President Obama is more Socialist than say Forbes or Reagan (perhaps).  He’s no more Socialist than Bush in my opinion.  Bush approved/extended a few programs that many might consider Socialist and if he had been able to sit for a third term, I believe, he would have acted much as did Obama.

On the question of health care, The United States must care for it’s citizens in our post-Industrial age.  The economy and capitalism is not going to do this nor are they designed in theory to do so.  Companies are attempting to cut back on expenses to improve the bottom line.  Canceling health care benefits.  Canceling pensions.  And so on and so forth.  If the United States is going to be a Nation of values and humanity going forward, it must care for it’s citizens.  Health Care is an important part of that plan.  In my opinion.  If America is truly a Nation of, by and for the people, then Health Care is and must be a priority.

It will likely mean heavier taxes.  Personally, I think some of those taxes should come from the businesses that benefit from American Capitalism, the Federal Government and from our military protectionist adventures around the world.  Some must come from the citizens themselves.

Additionally, I think in order for citizens to qualify for said health care, they should be willing to serve in some capacity the country that provides these benefits and “entitlements.”  “To whom much is given, much is expected” after all.  Some want much and expect to give nothing in return.

Welfare as we know it should be heavily reformed as a means to cut spending.  To qualify for welfare, I believe, that one should show that one is working towards something such as higher education or some sort of self improvement.  Welfare should be a graduated system rather than an all or nothing system.  If recipients are not working towards some goal, they should be willing to work in some service category such as working for an NGO or volunteer work or community service of some sort.  I’m completely against giving anyone’s tax dollars away for nothing for all or a great many years of one’s life.  Disability and ill-health should be taken into consideration, of course.  I know too many people back home in Kentucky who have never worked a day in their trailer park livin’, mayonnaise sandwich eatin’ lives.  Yet, they sit and collect tax dollars in the form of food stamps and other forms of social services.  Some of these folks sell drugs on the side or engage in other illicit activity.  Many do not.

Corporate welfare and other handouts should face heavy scrutiny as well.  Why are we giving corporations and other entities these moneys or tax breaks.  Foreign aid and foreign military support should be scrutinized in the same manner.  Why do we still have forces in Europe?  Korea?  Japan?  It’s time to pull out of these places.  Those forces could be better deployed elsewhere or home.  Why are we funding despots when we should be pressuring them to reform.  If they haven’t reformed by now, it’s not going to happen in most cases.  We have carrots with no sticks following on.

Socialism and Democracy can co-exist and America has proven this to a more or less limited degree over the past 70 or so years.  Sweden is rated the most democratic country in the world according to the links below.  It also engages heavily in social welfare.  I don’t know if larger countries can maintain that same model.  But, perhaps, it is worth the chance.
