I’m Glad I Can Fix My Own Computers

Court documents prove the FBI used Best Buy’s “Geek Squad” to gather evidence.

IV Right of search and seizure regulated

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

V Provisons concerning prosecution

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.

Privacy is not a function of whether or not you have anything to hide. I get sick of hearing that. The last time I had a discussion with one of those “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about” people, I told him if the police ever show up at my house and ask to search it without a warrant, I’m going to tell them, no, but give them his address and say “This guy says he has nothing to hide and doesn’t see a need for a fourth or fifth amendment. Go search his house without a warrant. I’m sure he’ll let you.”

The Method Behind The Madness of the Surveillance Tweet

Anonymous Conservative analyzes how President Trump immunized himself and neutralized an attack with a single tweet.

Since the release, there has been no further releases of information by the Trump twitter account. He is immunized from responsibility, so the tweets have all stopped. If he had not tweeted, the media would probably have used government spying as a way to attack him, and blame him. But once the spies were seen as attacking President Trump, attacking them was seen by the media as helping Trump, so the Wikileaks release got much less airtime than it probably would have otherwise.

So how does this protect the surveillance state? I suspect that Obama’s efforts to impeach and remove President Trump were based around exposing the surveillance state and blaming it on President Trump. So long as President Trump could be tied to the surveillance state, this plan would just have to wait a year or two to let him be established as the President overseeing it, and then it could be set in motion releasing information Obama’s people gathered right before leaving office.

But President Trump, by tweeting that he was a victim of the surveillance state, has now created a broader perception that he was a victim of the surveillance state. Now even if Obama’s outfit did release everything being done by the intelligence apparatus, Trump could seamlessly pivot to being the representative of the people in that battle.

Indeed, given that he tweeted that Obama was the one who wiretapped him, it is entirely possible that he could blame the entire thing on Obama. If Obama tried to attack with that battle plan, it is not impossible President Trump and the Republican House and Senate could Impeach and Convict him for High Crimes and Misdemeanors. That is probably why he singled out Obama, rather than the NSA, or CIA, or any other entity.

This was a blindingly brilliant move, that thwarted an entire avenue of attack. It turned a situation involving definite absolute destruction of the Trump Administration into a destruction of Obama’s entire legacy, and it did it with a Tweet of under 140 characters, that was probably sent in under 30 seconds. Trump is beyond anything anyone can imagine.

Had Trump not tweeted what he did, I think the full extent of the security state would have been aired out with Church Committee like hearings carefully planned and executed by Obama’s operation, and then it all would have come down to further the end of destroying President Trump. My expectation now is that we will not hear much more about the surveillance state, unless Wikileaks releases something shocking, which I suspect is doubtful. (They seem to hang onto the really juicy stuff as blackmail to prevent intelligence from acting too aggressively toward them.)

What? Malik Obama

I’d heard something about this before, but hadn’t taken the time to look it up. Apparently, our former President, The Obammesiah’s half brother is a Trump supporter. This is his Twitter account:

Though I spend little time on Twitter anymore (I focus on Gab.ai), I decided to follow him.

I got this idea through this article, in which Malik released a photocopy of his half-brother’s Kenyan birth certificate.

In 2011, I read Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s The Birth Certificate?” There was a LOT of our former President’s past that did not entirely add up. I’ve come across several accounts, some decently documented, that the former President’s real father was Communist Frank Marshal Davis. His mother was affiliated with Davis, around the time she could have been impregnated by the commie. Barack Obama Sr. was some poor foreign student who was brought in to marry Stanley to create some legitimacy. It’s interesting, anyway.

“Antifa” Defined

We hear a lot about “Antifa” lately. Roosh V calls them “Antifags”.

Essentially, if you aren’t on the side of the SJW and their Narrative, you are a “Nazi”, “white supremacist”, “racist”, etc. You know, the usual name calling. They call themselves “anti-fascists”. I doubt any of them have the first clue as to what fascism actually is. But if they had an intellect, they wouldn’t be leftist anarchist rioters.

Thanks to “meme magic”, this is was “antifa” means, and what they think fascism means:

I Never Understood Fake Reviews

I don’t get why people post fake reviews. I barely understand negative reviews. I think I’ve posted one on Amazon. I posted a couple more on my old blog, but I’d been asked by the publishers to review the books, I didn’t think they were good, and did my duty to factually explain why. Generally, if I don’t like or agree with something, I move on.

But if you’re a popular alt-right or conservative figure, and you write or publish books, you’re going to get negative reviews. The people who leave them have obviously never read the books or used the products (Vox Day links a negative review of Ivanka’s perfume).

But, mindless, intellectually dishonest SJW’s, your anonymity is no longer a protection. Vox Day included some interesting text at the bottom of his post I linked above:

And VFM, let’s find out who this Linux-using, dog-owning David is. Can you beat your previous time of 57 minutes to provide name, education, and place of employment? It was really rather amusing to give the previous gentleman a call at his office and ask him what it was that he didn’t like about the book. I don’t think “shell-shocked” would be too strong a word to describe his reaction. Sadly, he lived in a state where it was necessary to have permission to record the call.

That’s right, SJWs. Leave a negative review of one of Castalia House’s products, and the VFM (Vile Faceless Minions) may find you, and you may get a call from Vox Day (possibly at your place of work) himself asking you what you didn’t like. And no matter how polite and cordial Vox is, your amygdalas won’t be able to handle it because you’re cowards. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be afraid of a book.

Has The Media Gone Too Far In Attacking PewDiePie?

I admit; other than his guest appearance on South Park a few years ago, I’ve never paid attention to PewDiePie. I know my children watch him.

This past Saturday, I started seeing claims that he’s a racist and anti-Semite. These are MSM and SJW claims that usually mean nothing more than the MSM or SJW disagrees with a person. Many conservatives, alt-right, and libertarians have become desensitized to it. No matter what you say, unless you keep completely quiet, they’ll call you one of those names or a white supremacist.

So, I started watching some of PewDiePie’s videos. I won’t subscribe to his channel, but for the most part, I think he’s not bad. He did one video making fun of the “boilerplate” YouTubers include. “Thanks for watching, subscribe to my channel, subscribe to notifications, yada, yada, yada”. I got a laugh out of it. Half of YouTube videos are stupid boilerplate that wastes time, and I’m glad PewDiePie lampooned it.

A once great paper, the Wall Street Journal, was among those who attacked him. You know, since there’s nothing else going on in the world than a 20 something satirist who records videos for children demonstrating how stupid he thinks Fiverr is by paying a couple of fools to hold a sign up, so see if they would draw a line at what was obviously an absurd statement. And they didn’t.

PewDiePie responded to the criticism:

Poor guy.

The media has also recently gone after Milo, and they will never stop going after President Trump.

I think this may be the beginning of the end of the media. They’re already irrelevant. Nobody trusts them. They’re liberals, so they don’t understand things like context and categories. They don’t understand honesty and integrity. And plenty of people get that. How many of PewDiePie’s 53 million viewers do you think pay any attention to the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, or the Clown News Network?

Like some of their recent attacks, all they’re doing is cutting themselves off. Disney dropped a lucrative deal with PewDiePie, as did YouTube. They’re going to lose money over those deals. It’s just like that irrelevant department store (Macy’s? Bloomingdales? Who cares; I don’t shop there.) that decided to drop Ivanka Trump’s line of products. Ivanka’s products shot to the top of Amazon. Look at all the money they lost, that Amazon got. Oh, well, they made their political statement, and won’t understand what pushed them out of business in what is already a devastating retail apocalypse. (UPDATE: Nordstrum. I inadvertently came across that. I’ve never shopped there; have no plans to ever shop there, and care so little about them I wasn’t going to expend effort to fact check the name.)

I’m just going to sit back and watch them continue to fail. CNN is so obviously against President Trump. We have TVs at work tuned to them. Every now and again, they get a new headline and I think to myself “Oh, good, CNN has a new chew toy. I hope they’re happy.” Would they even have viewership if employers like mine didn’t leave TVs tuned to them all day?
