There are times when I think I understand what the Left is trying to say and do, and there are times that I just can’t. This is one of those times, as I have no idea how anyone could be stupid enough to report this the way CBS News is currently doing.
According to CBS News, “a photo of fire department recruits possibly using a racist hand gesture is being investigated by District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services… [The photo] shows some recruits in a group picture flashing a possible ‘white power’ hand gesture, but the gesture is similar to the ‘OK’ hand sign.”
CBS News’ D.C. affiliate WUSA-TV tried to explain that “the gesture in the photo might be seen as ‘WP’, for ‘White Power’, since extending three fingers is a possible ‘W’ and the ‘circle’ coming off an arm is a possible ‘P’ – ‘WP’”.
DC Fire and EMS also told WUSA that its investigation could “include interviews of everyone in the picture.”
Sometimes, the sheer stupidity of the Left is mind-boggling. We literally had this conversation a month or so ago regarding West Point graduates DOING THE EXACT SAME HAND SIGNALS and some idiots also got all uppity about that too for no real reason, only to try and smear people as “racist”.
And here is where I stand at a cross-roads. I am actually not sure if this is utter stupidity on the part of the fake news media, particularly CBS News, or if they really are just making a concerted effort to make the “OK” hand signal and the circle game a symbol of “white power” or racism. I really don’t know if this idiocy is deliberate or accidental, but by God, it’s still insane regardless of the purpose.
Do we REALLY have to have this conversation again? Do we really have to look back at EVERYONE who has made the “OK” hand symbol? Do I really have to bring up the pictures of Obama, Pelosi, the Clintons, AOC and Bill de Blasio again? Or do I now have to bring up pictures of Chuck Schumer, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Elizabeth Warren and Pope Francis making the same exact hand sign? Do I have to make a case as to why each of them isn’t a racist for making this hand sign (though they are racists for other reasons)?
It’s actual insanity that these idiots would report this as though it’s a major story full of controversy WHEN WE DID THIS WHOLE ROUTINE A LITTLE OVER A MONTH AGO! Is it that they just really want to make that hand sign “racist” because Trump often makes that hand sign? Is it yet another example of the Left trying to find fault and guilt where none lies, trying to be offended by something that no one in their right mind would get offended by?
And as with the last time I covered this insanity, the people in the picture aren’t even making the ok hand sign anyway! Not that it would make any difference, as the hand sign is not racist, but still. As with the last time, the people in the picture are playing the circle game.
This is something CBS News themselves point out at the end of their story (but of course, not before trying to smear these recruits as racists because otherwise, there’d be no point in reporting this):
“The investigation comes about a month after military officials said hand gestures flashed by West Point cadets and Naval Academy midshipmen during the televised Army-Navy football game weren’t racist signals. Officials said the students were participating in a ‘circle game’ in which someone flashes an upside-down OK sign below the waist and punches anyone who looks at it.”
A couple of points here. First, I’m glad that these idiots remember the last time the fake news media tried to do this. At least, their mental capacity isn’t so pathetic as to have forgotten.
Second, I cannot commend these idiots any more than that precisely BECAUSE they remember the last time this b.s. was pulled and still tried to pull it again. This is what leads me to believe that it wasn’t an idiotic mistake, but that they REALLY want to make the ok hand signal and circle game symbols of white supremacy.
Despite the stupidity of it all, they really want to try and paint anyone who makes those hand signs as “racists”. They view dissenters as Nazis and Nazis are supposed to make particular signs with their hands/arms. In today’s age, hardly anyone would be willing to make the Nazi gesture anymore, so the media has to paint people who make a particular hand sign, such as “OK”, as people who are racists and deserve the public’s scorn.
No one in their right mind would think that those hand signs are symbols of white supremacy. Virtually EVERYONE has made that hand sign at one point or another in their lives. It’s why there are so many pictures of various different politicians, celebrities, and just random people making that hand sign: it’s NORMAL.
But one final point I would actually like to make about the fake news that is CBS is how scummy they are. They fully acknowledge the fact that it’s just the circle game and even go out of their way to explain the rules of the game: you flash that sign below the waist and whoever sees it, you can punch. They KNOW that this isn’t about race and yet, make it their mission to smear anyone who does this as a “white supremacist”.
THEY KNOW that this is nothing more than a harmless game from the early 2000s that has ZERO ties to race or anything of the sort, but they just have to try and make this country look like it’s filled with racists. That’s the larger agenda anyway. In their minds, this country is irreparably racist to its core. It was founded by racists, for racists and a racist currently sits in the White House. That is the sort mindset these people have and the sort of outlook they have on this country. But since this country ISN’T inherently racist to its core, they have to make up some serious b.s.
Want a secure border? You’re a racist. You’re white and have an opinion that doesn’t coincide with the Left? You’re racist. You want people to be able to protect themselves? You’re racist. You support Israel and the Jewish people? You’re racist. You doubt the literally incredible story of Jussie Smollett being assaulted by MAGA people who shouted “this is MAGA country” in Chicago during 7° weather? You’re racist. You think black people shouldn’t kill their own children? You’re racist. You make the OK hand sign or play the circle game? You’re racist.
Labelling people as racists is a SPORT to these people. Anyone and everyone the Left targets is a racist and the only way to be forgiven for that is to vote straight blue and donate to and support Democrats during elections.
I’m pretty sure I don’t need to explain why everything about this is utter bullcrap.
Just like I said when the media tried to smear the West Point graduates: this is why no one likes the media.

Social media was abuzz earlier this week shortly following the seventh Democrat debate and the last one before the Iowa caucuses were set to begin due to how CNN treated Crazy Bernie with some of the questions asked.
There was one particular moment during the Democrat debates that had Bernie supporters actually agreeing with Trump supporters that CNN is garbage. But this moment likely was set up from the start of the week.
You see, back on Monday, CNN reported that Sen. Bernie Sanders told Sen. Elizabeth Warren during a private 2018 dinner where it was just the two of them that he didn’t think a woman could win the presidency. CNN’s source? Their usual b.s. of “anonymous sources”.
Of course, Bernie denied such an accusation and again did so during the debate when he was asked if he did actually say that to Elizabeth Warren:
“CNN reported yesterday and Senator Warren confirmed in a statement that in 2018, you told her that you did not believe a woman could win the presidential election. Why did you say that?” asked debate moderator Abby Phillips.
“Well, as a matter of fact, I didn’t say it. And I don’t want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some of the media want. Anybody [who] knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States. Go to YouTube today. There’s a video of me 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States. In 2015, I deferred, in fact, to Sen. Warren. There was a movement to draft Sen. Warren to run for president. And you know what… [I] stayed back. Sen. Warren decided not to run, and I… did run afterwards. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 3 million votes. How could anybody in a million years not believe that a woman could become president of the United States?”
I do not like Bernie whatsoever and thoroughly believe that all of his ideas would destroy this country almost immediately. Funny enough, in a rare moment of journalistic integrity (at least, somewhat), a couple of chyrons from CNN during the debate read: “Sanders’ proposals would double federal spending over a decade; how will he avoid bankrupting the country?” and “Does Sanders owe voters an explanation of how much his health care plan will cost them and the country?” These are the types of questions journalists NEVER are supposed to ask Democrats, but they did for Bernie (although they didn’t ask the same of Warren, who is pretty well-known for stealing Bernie’s terrible ideas).
However, these chyrons, as well as another one that read: “Warren supports a new trade deal with Mexico and Canada; why is Sanders’ opposition to it wrong?”, lead us to believe that the fix is in for Bernie and that CNN is sidling up to Warren. But none of these compare to the actual moment during the debate when they blatantly took Warren’s side.
Immediately following Bernie’s answer, Abby Phillips said: “So Sen. Sanders, I do want to be clear here, you’re saying that you never told Sen. Warren that a woman could not win the election?” Bernie, of course, said: “that is correct.”
But then, Phillips turned to Warren and asked: “Sen. Warren, what did you think when Sen. Sanders told you that a woman could not win the election?”
The question wasn’t “Did Bernie tell you what you said he told you?” It wasn’t “Do you have any proof that he said what you accuse him of saying?” They just assumed that Bernie was lying and that the burden of proof fell on Bernie, not Warren, which is, of course, ridiculous as one cannot prove something didn’t happen, only that it did. One cannot outright prove that Bernie didn’t say something, only that he did, and the burden of proof falls on Warren.
Of course, this led to many people both on the Left (at least those who support Bernie) and the Right to call out CNN for their blatant bias.
Andrew Egger tweeted: “It’s WILD that CNN didn’t ask Warren to positively state that Bernie told her ‘a woman can’t win,’ seconds after he positively denied that it happened. Just ‘what did you think when he said that to you?’ Absolute malpractice.”
Saagar Enjeti from The Hill tweeted: “Seriously it is outrageous that CNN would take Warren’s accusation as a statement of fact.”
Tim Carney from the Washington Examiner said: “Bernie was mistreated by CNN.”
Reason magazine senior editor Robby Soave said: “It was a very telling moment when Bernie said he didn’t say a woman couldn’t win and then in the very next moment, the moderator just asserted that he had.”
Of course, I have my own opinions regarding this. Bernie absolutely got mistreated by CNN there. He was accused of saying something, is being lied about it, smeared about it, and he is being indicted in the court of public opinion by at least Warren supporters and others in the media. Presumption of innocence is not being granted to him by some people. In other words, he received the Brett Kavanaugh treatment from CNN.
But then again, Brett Kavanaugh is also the reason I don’t particularly feel bad for Bernie. Sure, he was wronged by CNN, but he took Dr. Ford’s side entirely when it came to the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.
Back when Kavanaugh was being confirmed by the Senate, various senators got the chance to weigh in and give their two cents on it. This is what Bernie said:
“I listened to Dr. Ford, and I listened to Judge Kavanaugh. I believe Dr. Ford. Brett Kavanaugh does not belong on the Supreme Court. If Judge Kavanaugh wants to clear his name on these very serious charges he should immediately demand a thorough FBI investigation. If not, the Senate should reject his nomination.”
Dr. Ford provided zero evidence and the witnesses that she named either did not actually witness anything, had no recollection of anything, or adamantly CONTRADICTED Ford’s testaments. There wasn’t a single shred of evidence that Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her or any of the other women that the Democrats called up to accuse him and smear him. His reputation was forever ruined from that day and even now, people believe Dr. Ford and the other accusers, despite the total lack of evidence.
Bernie got a SMALL TASTE of that injustice. Warren didn’t accuse him of sexual assault. CNN and the other propaganda organizations aren’t running hit piece after hit piece smearing Bernie as a serial sexual offender. His political future (short as it might be) is not heavily threatened by these accusations of sexism. Yes, he was wronged by CNN for assuming he said something when there is no proof he did, but Bernie was on the same side as them just a little over a year ago.
He did not presume Kavanaugh’s innocence and believed the statements of an obviously trained Democrat operative who provided zero proof, only a seemingly sympathetic crying face and seemingly innocent manner of speech. That wench tried to ruin a man’s entire LIFE just because she perceived him to be a threat to Roe v. Wade and Bernie took her side wholeheartedly.
CNN absolutely sucks. They are garbage. The hashtag “CNNisTrash” was trending on Twitter following that moment and for good reason: it’s the truth. This “news” organization recently settled with a 17-year-old because they lied about him being a racist in an attempt to ruin the kid’s life just because he supports Trump. For the first two and a half years of Trump’s presidency, CNN ran story after story of nothing but lies and deception about Russian collusion, assuming Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election away from Hillary and reporting that as though it was truth.
CNN is a garbage propaganda organization with zero truth in anything they report. But I do not feel bad for Bernie at all. This is what happens when truth and justice is overtaken by political agendas. There wasn’t one bit of evidence to suggest Kavanaugh did what he did to any of the women who accused him of sexual assault. Not one could provide corroborating evidence or witnesses to back up their claims. And yet, for a few months, the media made sure to forever ruin an innocent man’s reputation and life, like they tried to do with Clarence Thomas, just because he was a political enemy. Bernie played a part, even if a small one, in presuming guilt rather than innocence despite all the evidence AGAINST the accusers’ testimonies.
Bernie got a small taste of what it feels like to be on the receiving end when idiots say “believe all women”. There is no reason to believe someone who, for decades, lied about her heritage to get an advantage and constantly lies about virtually every aspect of her life, policies etc. There is no reason to believe this simply due to the lack of evidence that Bernie said what he is accused of having said. But there was also never a reason to believe any of the Kavanaugh accusers, but Bernie abandoned truth and reason for political points and convenience.
If you ask me, he got only a little bit of what he actually deserves. Still, I am amused at the fact that Democrats might be trying to screw Bernie again. Only makes Trump’s win all the easier come November.

We all know that the Left lives in a perpetual state of anger, outrage and offense, where they look for any and all reasons to be angry at something or someone and feel like some sort of tragic victim who is due some sort of justice. But recently, Leftists have been outraged at something particularly odd: the fact that an openly conservative Hollywood star shows that he is openly conservative.
You see, recently, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended the College Football National Championship game between LSU and Clemson University, where he received great cheers and standing ovations from the crowd, with the crowd also chanting “USA” upon seeing him.
However, that is not what the Left will choose to cover (can’t show that Trump is popular, because that would go against the narrative that the vast majority of this country hates and detests him). Also in attendance of this game was Hollywood star Vince Vaughn, who got the opportunity to have a conversation with the President of the United States and First Lady during the game and even shake the president's hand as shown above.
A camera recorded this occasion and sports “journalist” Timothy Burke tweeted out the video with the caption: “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it,” as though he was mourning the fact that a Hollywood celebrity who is not shy about his conservative beliefs was holding a civil conversation with Trump.
Of course, I do actually know why he and other Leftists were outraged. Hollywood is supposed to be THEIRS. At every awards show, in every movie, Leftist ideology must be not only shared but shoved down our throats and any contradicting ideology must be pushed down and obliterated. Hosts who make jokes at the expense of the woke celebrities must be lambasted (such as Ricky Gervais) and celebrities who dissent from the Leftist ideology in any way must be blacklisted and publicly shamed.
The “journalist” appeared to be mourning because he essentially was. Vince Vaughn is a beloved actor in Hollywood, having appeared or starred in many great comedies like Anchorman, Dodgeball, Wedding Crashers, and other movies. He is still working as an actor and producer in various films to this day, so his open conservatism hasn’t derailed his career like it has for other actors.
Vince Vaughn is still popular and beloved, so it apparently hurts the snowflake Left when they see him amicably and civilly speaking with the POTUS. You see, in their mind, even if you are a conservative, you should hate Trump. Even if you are a conservative, right-winger, you should still be on the side of the Left, at least when it comes to Trump, and given the opportunity, you should be seen yelling and screaming like a madman at Trump or cursing him out, or at least, actively avoiding him and/or trying to embarrass him. No one is allowed to like Trump, no one is allowed to have a dissenting opinion. Everyone is supposed to hold the same views as the Left, or they should be cancelled.
Of course, Burke got blasted for his inability to believe that someone, particularly someone like Vince Vaughn, would actually have the gall to be civil in the presence of Trump:
“You’ve successfully proven that Vince Vaughn is a Republican, that thing he has taken no effort to hide,” wrote Alex Griswold. He followed that up by saying: “DM me dude, I have a GIANT scoop about Jon Voight,” who is also another prominent conservative in Hollywood.
Marc Thiessen tweeted: “OMG the humanity! This is terrible! We must all hate Vince Vaughn! You would have done great under Stalin.”
Carpe Donktum, a known conservative meme-maker whose memes often get retweeted by conservatives and sometimes even by the President, tweeted: “Man, I just can’t believe how bold some of these Hollywood people are becoming, first Ricky, and now Vince. If this keeps up people might realize that they live in a free country, and it’s ok to have different opinions than the ones shouted at you on TV.”
If you remember, I recently wrote an article showing us just how few liberals there actually are in this country, with that number being just below 25%. In Hollywood, one would assume that at least 90% of the people there are liberal, so it can be rather rare to see a conservative Hollywood celebrity or star, but they do exist. And in the Left’s mind, that is horrible. As I said in the article about the number of liberals in the country, they are few in number so they have to be loud to pretend to be the mainstream opinion.
Virtually every Hollywood movie and every TV show produced today must bear a hyper-liberal message. A new Star Trek is being made? It should tackle Trump and Brexit (even though it’s literally set hundreds of years in the future, but I guess Trump is still going to be president in the 2360s and Britain will still be trying to leave the European Union) and point out how both of those things are not only bad, but are dangerous and violent for literally everyone. Trump is president and he continues winning electorally? Let’s make a movie about hunting and killing conservatives. More people tend to be okay with homosexuality as time goes on? Good, let’s overrepresent gay people as much as possible in films and tv, even though they are about 5% of the population, if that, and have “gay rights” organizations yell at us for not representing gay people enough anyway.
Movies that present a different ideology, or even just don’t shove the Leftist ideology down people’s throats, are labeled as “problematic”, “controversial” or “irresponsible”, such as the movie “1917”, which is about WWI but it doesn’t feature transgender military generals ordering a sufficiently marginalized, foreign, strong and independent woman of color to singlehandedly beat the Nazis (I know Nazis are from WWII, but the enemy would be treated as Nazis, as we generally are) all while flying the rainbow flag and denouncing white privilege and the United States and a president who wouldn’t be born for roughly another 30 years, so it’s labeled as “irresponsibly nationalistic”.
Any semblance of dissent must be culled, in the Left’s mind, and this has been the modus operandi for ages. The Chinese do it to this day. The Iranians do it. The Russians do it and did it often when they were the Soviet Union. In any dictatorship, where there is dissenting opinion, there are mysterious disappearances and killings. The American Left wishes they could be the dictators of the U.S., as dictators rule harshly in other countries. (Project Veritas recently released a video showing Bernie Sanders campaign staffers wishing to send Trump supporters to “reeducation camps” to “de-Nazify” us, so these people are no different from the commies in the USSR).
For Vince Vaugh to not only be conservative but also to be civil in the face of Trump, it is to be treated as a tragedy. Which is a little odd because, again, he is openly conservative. Back in 2013, he gave an interview where he said: “I think that… as you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And that you start to realize when you really go back and look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to sort of think and pursue what they have interest in. And that when you start drawing the lines, saying, as a society, we think this is inappropriate, we’re going to pass laws to protect them from themselves and/or take things away to protect themselves or move money from here to there, that you realize that you wake up with corruption and… you’ll wake up with a lot of problems that didn’t exist prior.”
It really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that Vince Vaughn is a conservative, but again, the tragedy, I suppose, is that he didn’t yell at Trump like a decent human being would… or something dumb like that.
Thankfully, considering so many people already know that Vaughn is a conservative, and considering he still gets work in Lefty Hollywood, to the dismay of this particular sports “journalist”, I doubt he will be cancelled over this. Someone might get angry with him and lambast him or bash him on the internet, but he will be fine. But this does, sadly, go to show just how valueless basic civility is nowadays when being seen holding a conversation with someone the Left hates is considered some sort of devastating tragedy and when the expectation by the Left is that the President would be verbally assaulted.
“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.”

While the global Left will undoubtedly choose to call anyone who is against the overrunning of one’s own country by immigrants “racist”, a good majority of people in Great Britain are against giving amnesty to illegal aliens and are worried about what immigration will do for population growth in the country over the next decade.
According to a Deltapoll survey commissioned by Migration Watch UK, 51% of Britons do “not support a proposed amnesty for illegal aliens.” 38% are in favor, but only 11% are “strongly” in favor among that 38%.
This comes after a rise in illegal boat migrants landing in Great Britain throughout 2019 and the U.K. government suggesting giving amnesty to illegal aliens who had been in the country for 15 or so years.
According to a Migration Watch UK spokesman: “Those who enter the UK illegally make their first act in Britain a criminal one and should be returned from whence they came. While those who enter legally and stay on when their visas run out should not be able to run down the clock thinking they will eventually be granted residence.”
This is what many who are against illegal immigration (such as myself) often point out. When Donald Trump first pointed out the various types of criminals that illegal aliens often are: murderers, rapists, drug, sex and gun traffickers, etc., he was lambasted by the Left as being racist for saying that “most” of them were criminals. But the reality is that ALL OF THEM, BY VIRTUE OF BEING HERE ILLEGALLY, ARE CRIMINALS. Their very entry into the U.S. in an illegal fashion brands them as criminals, as they should be, because it is ILLEGAL to do that. The same can easily be applied for any illegal immigrant entering any other nation, it’s just that the U.S. and the U.K. are just about the only ones who have brought this issue to light.
And even then, it’s not necessarily the governments of these countries that point out the problem. Again, it’s the U.K. government that is seeking to implement an amnesty for illegals who had been living in the country for many years. The people of the country are the ones who are against that and who are pointing out the problem.
The spokesman continued: “Amnesties send out entirely the wrong signals, they are a slap in the face to all those who play by the book and simply don’t work – as the Italians, Spaniards and French have all found out. Most importantly, as our Delta polling has clearly shown, the bulk of the British people are also against them.”
Exactly as he says, amnesty sends out the wrong signals, is a slap in the face to anyone who does things the right way and doesn’t help out a nation. Amnesty is basically the government giving up on enforcing their own established immigration laws and saying “meh, do what you want, no one’s gonna stop you”. It sets a dangerous precedent, as we have seen not only in the U.S., but in many countries worldwide. If the government doesn’t care about its own laws, why should the people who are entering the country, or even the people already in the country? Why should immigrants, hoping to leave to a (for now) better country, play by the rules, pay their dues and wait their turn in line when the government isn’t going to punish those who don’t abide by the rules and do things the right way? What reason is there to do what is right when those doing things the wrong way don’t get punished for it?
And the reasoning behind amnesty is beyond stupid as well. Boris Johnson has said in the past “we effectively have [amnesty]… If you have been here for 10 or 12 years, I’m afraid the authorities no longer really pursue you. They give up. Why not be honest about what is going on?”
You would think, then, that he would take steps to avoid people illegally going into the country and taking advantage of this “effective” amnesty, but no, his strategy is “we’re already basically doing it, let’s just make it actually part of the books,” which is extremely moronic, as it doesn’t solve any problems. It incentivizes immigrants to forego the established system of immigration in favor of forcing themselves into the country because they know they won’t be punished for it if they can hide long enough.
Doing this also presents problems as population grows in the country, which the Britons are also worried about. According to Deltapoll, 68% of Britons expressed concern about the rate of immigration into the U.K. and its effect on the country’s overall population. Out of this 68%, 36% expressed “great concern” and 32% expressed “some concern”. But regardless, a notable size of the population of Britain is concerned over the rate of immigration and what it would do to the population of the country in the future.
Migration Watch UK Chairman Alp Mehmet said: “As ever, the British people, with their usual common sense, have shown themselves to be way ahead of the political class. Their concern about population growth and the scale of immigration that drives it is clear. They also see that the only way to deal with this unsustainable and damaging growth is for a significant reduction in immigration. Why can’t the political class not see that?”
I would wager it’s because they largely don’t care, which is ironic considering the massive pro-Brexit victory British people handed to “Amnesty Boris” Johnson last December and considering one of the biggest, if not the biggest, reason for the British people having voted in favor of Brexit (more than once) is because they want to take control of their borders and keep illegals from entering and staying.
Illegals will tend to (illegally) vote in favor of those who allow them amnesty, which is why so many politicians all over the world tend to think of this as a favorable position. This allows for such politicians to remain in power for just about as long as they want, since they don’t really care about the people they are supposed to represent, but care about their own well-beings. Why do you think it is that the Democrat Party has practically abandoned the blue-collar, white class of voters? They lambast them as being “racist” for being concerned over illegal immigration because they are certain that enough Latinos and illegals in general will support them, as well as the white people who feel the idiotic “white guilt”.
But the British people, it seems, are mostly not idiotic. Unlike the Germans (who are quickly going back to their Nazi ways, though through a more globalist outlook), the British don’t want immigrants galore in their country. They don’t want their own government to ignore the law that is in the books that is meant to protect their borders and their people.
I suppose we will need to wait and see if the U.K. government wakes up to the will of the people, though I don’t expect this to happen any time soon.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
Pop culture. Mainstream Media. Social Media. Politics. All of these things are dominated by the Left to one extent or another. All of these things feature Left-wing ideologies, ideas, policies, beliefs and objectives. All of these things make you believe that the loud voices you hear are the mainstream, popular and majority opinions. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Gallup recently ran a poll to find where Americans find themselves on the political spectrum and the results can be eye-opening for some, or perhaps, most people. According to Gallup, while there are more Americans who align themselves with the Democrat Party than Republican (47-42%, respectively), the number of conservatives in this country is far bigger than the number of liberals and that gap is growing.
Gallup surveyed nearly 30,000 people (so a massive sample size) and found that 37% of Americans view themselves as “conservative”. This number is up from the previous time this survey was taken (2018) when 35% identified as “conservative” so a two-point increase. But while the number of conservatives grew in 2019, the number of liberals SHRANK.
According to Gallup, the number of Americans who identify themselves as “liberal” is just 24%, down from 26% the previous year. 35% of Americans identified as “moderate” though it’s possible that a decent number of them are conservatives who were too afraid to say they are conservative out of fear of scorn or persecution and one cannot really blame someone for this.
As I said, pop culture, the MSM, social media, etc. are all DOMINATED by Left-wing rhetoric and ideology. You hear the biggest names in Hollywood or in sports often lambasting the President or even the country itself. You watch the news and most of it is negative towards Trump and those who support him. You go on social media and you often see Left-wing babble trending on Twitter or conservatives being censored or conservative videos getting taken down or conservative comments being flagged as “hate speech”, etc.
The loud voices of the Left are so overwhelming and frequent that you can’t help but think they are in the majority. And THAT is the reason they are so loud. They don’t have the numbers. The vast majority of people do not agree with everything these self-righteous hypocrites have to say. The vast majority of people do not agree with them. But as they live in their own narcissistic bubble and believe they are the most important and intelligent people on Earth, they believe most people do agree with them and couldn’t possibly stand that most people do not, so they delude themselves.
Remember when Rose McGowan tweeted that “52% of us humbly apologize” for the drone strike that killed Soleimani? She sincerely believes that 52% of the country is Left-wing 24/7 and agrees with her and the Left on basically everything. She believes 52% of the country is with her on this, but according to The Hill, 47% of American voters supported the strike against Soleimani, while only 40% disapproved (sample size: 1,995 registered voters). Granted, not every American is a registered voter, but when it comes to election time, these are the people that matter the most.
The vast majority of people agreed with the Soleimani strike, even if Rose McGowan and Michael “Higher BMI than IQ points” Moore deeply apologize to the terror-supporting Iranians. This is because the vast majority of Americans DO NOT agree with these idiotic celebrities.
Now, when it comes to party lines, most people align roughly with what would be expected. Among Republicans, 73% identify as “conservative”, which ties the highest number in the last 25 years, while only 4% identify as “liberal”. 21% of Republicans also identify as “moderate”. For Democrats, 49% identify as liberal, 36% are “moderate” and 14% are “conservative”.
As far as Independents go, 45% identify as “moderate”, 30% are “conservative” and 21% are “liberal”.
41% of American men consider themselves “conservative”, 36% of men are “moderate” and 20% are “liberal”. 33% of women are “conservative”, 35% are “moderate” and 28% are “liberal”. If I had to guess at least one reason, even if not the biggest reason, for this disparity, I would guess that abortion would have to be a reason for it. Women are the ones who get pregnant after sex, so it stands to reason that there would be more liberal women than liberal men because liberal women do not want the responsibility of child-bearing and rearing. I’m not sure if this is the biggest reason for this disparity, but I think it’s at least one, fairly major, reason for it.
Looking at age, we find that those 18-29 tend to be more liberal than conservative (30-26% respectively), but not by all that much and the vast majority of them are moderate (40%). This makes a lot of sense to me. Plenty of young people naively support socialism and communism, so it stands to reason that more of them are more “liberal” than “conservative”, but the difference is not overwhelming. And it also makes sense that so many are “moderate” because younger people tend to try and find themselves and what they believe, not holding on to anything solid politically just yet, but discovering what they believe for themselves to be morally right (though morality is determined by God, but that’s an argument for another time).
Of course, I fall within this age range, being a Millennial, but I would consider myself to be solidly conservative (and I would hope all of my articles would reflect that). For people ages 30-49, 34% are “conservative” as opposed to 26% of “liberals”, with 37% being “moderate”. 50-64 age range, you find 42% “conservative”, 34% “moderate” and 21% “liberal”. 65+, you get 46% “conservative”, 29% “moderate” and 21% “liberal.”
This also makes sense, in my opinion. Winston Churchill is (perhaps falsely) attributed for saying: “If you aren’t a liberal by 20, you have no heart. If you aren’t a conservative by 40, you have no brain.” We tend to be most liberal when we are young because our minds are not yet fully developed and we are more prone to act based on emotion rather than logic (which is why the Democrats want to lower the voting age to 16). Young people do not know the truths of the world, at least usually. They have to go out and discover them for themselves, which is why virtually no one takes the 17-year-old climate puppet seriously.
As one gets older, one would (hopefully) get wiser as well. If one obtains more knowledge as time goes on, one obtains more wisdom as well. We gain this through time and experience. Young people do not have the experience and wisdom that comes with age that older people do, so they tend to be a bit more liberal because being liberal means being more illogical (sorry to any liberal reading this, but the ideologies of socialism are a pipe-dream and not at all realistic or possible to achieve with zero negative consequence).
But moving on from age, we also find distinctions in levels of education. Those with a postgraduate degree are, to no one’s surprise, more liberal than conservative (36-26%, respectively) though an equal number of people to liberals are also “moderate”. Those who have graduated college find a shift, however, where 32% are “conservative”, 38% are “moderate” and 28% are “liberal”. Those with only “some college” education are 38% “conservative”, 37% “moderate” and 22% “liberal”. Those without any college education are 43% “conservative”, 33% “moderate” and 19% “liberal”.
I’ve said this countless times before and I’ll say it again: college is where logic goes to die. The effects of Marxism in college campuses are clear for all to see. This plays at least some role in the liberalism of young people, and a particularly big role in the socialist and communist romantization in young people’s minds. Despite the fact that communism is an ideology of death and destruction, it’s been romanticized by Marxist college professors seeking to mold young people’s minds the way that they want and create more and more Marxist puppets. How else can one come to find someone as economically illiterate as AOC having an economics degree?
The longer people subject themselves to college indoctrination, the more likely they are to come out the other side a mini-Lenin.
Regardless, next we find people with different incomes and something fairly surprising. Those who make $100,000 or more are 36% “conservative”, 37% “moderate” and 26% “liberal”. Income range from $40,000 to $100,000, you find 38% are “conservative”, 35% “moderate”, and 25% “liberal.” For those who make less than $40,000, you find 36% “conservative”, 36% “moderate” and 24% “liberal”.
This is interesting to me because of just how close together each of them is. The entire schtick of communism, at least as Marx put it, was all about class warfare and the “inequalities” of income between the proletariat and the bourgeoise. Of course, he was mostly talking about Germany and the U.K., not about the U.S., as it wasn’t a world superpower at the time, but still. For all the talks in communist circles about class warfare, the numbers seem to be roughly the same regardless of income. Actually, according to these numbers, you are more likely to be liberal if you make MORE money than less. This, I suppose, is where one would tend to find the term “limousine liberal” to make a lot of sense.
Regarding race, Non-Hispanic whites are 41% “conservative”, 33% “moderate” and 23% “liberal”. Non-Hispanic blacks are 23% “conservative”, 44% “moderate” and 28% “liberal”, which makes sense considering black people tend to vote Democrat (as self-destructive and damaging as that is for the black communities around the country). Hispanics are 35% “conservative”, 37% “moderate” and 25% “liberal”, which makes sense because Latinos tend to be more closely tied to the nuclear family (though plenty do also tend to vote Democrat, most likely because many are here illegally and the Democrats are the open borders party).
Finally, when it comes to region, you find that those living in the East are 32% “conservative”, 36% “moderate” and 28% “liberal.” In the Midwest, you find 38% “conservative”, 35% “moderate” and 23% “liberal”, which makes sense and aligns well with usual electoral maps. In the South, you find 41% “conservative”, 35% “moderate” and 21% “liberal”. And in the West coast, interestingly enough, you find 34% “conservative”, 36% “moderate” and 27% “liberal”.
That last one is interesting considering the West coast is often considered the “Left” coast because of the tendency of those states to vote Democrat. But there are a good number of farmers and land owners in those states, and farm and land owners tend to be conservative, even if the biggest population centers in those states are heavily liberal.
But regardless, it is interesting to note just how truly few people in this country actually would consider themselves “liberal”. There are far more conservatives and “moderates”, generally people who are “center-right” in this country than there are Leftists, even if what we often see and hear does not outright reflect that.
Again, Leftists need to be loud because they don’t have the numbers. They infect every organization they can to appear to be the mainstream and popular opinion, when that generally isn’t what they are. Most people are either conservative or at least do not agree with most, all, or even some liberal policies or ideologies. And I can only hope that the gap between conservative and liberal continues to grow, not only for the sake of the country, but also so that many might turn their lives over to Christ.

In this day and age, if you dare tell the truth about biological gender, you stand the risk of being lambasted, cancelled or both. Any semblance of scientific truth regarding the issue of transgenderism must be culled in favor of science fiction so that a miniscule sector of society will not feel offended and so that Leftists can politicize and attack people for some sort of bigotry as though it’s a sport. But what happens when America’s first legal “non-binary” person discovers the truth about so-called gender identity and returns to his original gender of male?
This is what James Shupe is attempting to do, fighting legal fights in multiple states (namely Florida and Oregon) to get back his original gender of male and put it back on all legal documents which currently legally state that he is “non-binary”.
PJ Media had an extensive piece regarding this issue that I recommend you check out yourself, as I will likely not be able to cover everything here.
Shupe told PJ Media: “The charade of not being male, the legal fiction, it’s over. The lies behind my fictitious sex changes, something I shamefully participated in, first to female, and then to non-binary, have been forever exposed. A truthful accounting of events has replaced the deceit that allowed me to become America’s first legally non-binary person.”
He added: “The legal record has now been corrected and LGBT advocates are no longer able to use my historic non-binary court order to advance their toxic agenda. I am and have always been male. That is my biological truth, the only thing capable of grounding me to reality.”
He also said: “I hope that [a woman who is fighting to legally change her legal designation to non-binary] and all the others are denied the right to change their sex to non-binary because it’s fraud and legal fiction based on pseudoscience. I was indoctrinated to believe that I had this thing called a gender identity and that suppressing it was causing my mental health problems. It was all a lie.”
Obviously, this is a complete 180 from what he used to believe. Though he has mental health problems, he was led to believe that these problems were a result of suppressing a gender identity that was different from his biological sex. He was easy prey for anyone with an agenda to destroy as many lives as possible. As I said in the title, he used to be a hero in the LGBT community because of not only his transition into a woman, but particularly for becoming the first legally “non-binary” person in America. His own case has been and currently is being used by other people to legally transition their own legal gender status to “non-binary” as well, which he sincerely hopes to fight against.
Shupe later told PJ Media about the sort of physical and psychological harm his transitions have caused him:
“I ended up in the psych ward three times because of hormones. I had blood clots in my eyes because my estrogen levels were 2,585 instead of 200 (normal estrogen levels for women ranges from 15-350 picograms/milliliter, while for men, it ranges from 10-82 pg/mL. A man receiving roughly THIRTEEN times the normal amount for a woman is bound to lead to terrible health problems), low bone density, problems controlling my bladder, and emotional instability. Blood tests indicated I was dropping into kidney disease territory (eGFR below 60%) for about 18 months, I had chronic dermatology issues and skin reactions to estrogen patches, I passed out on the kitchen floor from Spironolactone (a drug meant to treat heart failure, high blood pressure or hypokalemia (low potassium levels in blood)).”
In all, while James was led to believe that transitioning into a different gender from what he is would be helpful, it only ended up hurting him more than anything. He had mental health issues before and these issues were only exacerbated by the sort of hormone treatment he was receiving, on top of the various drugs he was taking. The high-strength marijuana he was taking also made him hallucinate:
“The gender transitions were supposed to fix my mental health problems, but I kept getting worse instead. The high-powered marijuana made me psychotic. I started hearing booming noises and having visions of being some Indian woman. I started believing I was some kind of chosen one who was picked to restore the third gender to North America, that’s what I thought the visions were telling me.”
It’s not surprising at all that the Left, who are like the devil, would try and convince James to destroy his own life using lies and deceit. NO ONE gets better by exacerbating mental health issues and no one who claims to be “loving and tolerant” could come off as such when they suggest that people physically and psychologically harm themselves by lying to them about what would happen.
The serpent lied to Eve about her dying if she were to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree and lied to her about being “like God”. He convinced her that she would be “like God, knowing good and evil” to get her and Adam to destroy their very own lives and get them kicked out of literal paradise. The Left is exactly the same way, telling people lies so that they will willingly destroy their own lives. “No, socialism doesn’t lead to death and starvation. It leads to prosperity!” “Yes, your mental health issues will all go away if you make the transition into a different gender entirely.” “No, your unborn child is not a human; it’s nothing more than the equivalent of Jell-O.” “Yes, you should give up your rights and freedoms to the government. It’s for the environment!” “Yes, little Timmy, anyone who has guns is a bad person and will only seek to hurt you.”
All destructive lies that can alter, ruin or outright end people’s lives. And the Left repeats them with zero remorse regardless of the consequences.
Despite what this ideology has gotten James, any attempt to fight back against it has been met with scorn from the very people that considered him a sort of “hero”. Once he began to disagree with the transgender ideology, the various media sources that would love to hear what he had to say all of a sudden were uninterested in his opinion. They didn’t care that he agreed with Trump’s transgender military ban. They didn’t care that he was worried about the effect of this ideology on young children and their growing bodies. They didn’t care about the harmful effects this lifestyle has had on his life and on his health.
“Not a single Oregon media outlet has been willing to talk to me, let alone report that I’ve reclaimed my birth sex and have denounced gender ideology. They dropped me after I supported Trump’s ban on gender dysphoria in the military. That got me canceled.”
The Left doesn’t care for the truth. James finding out this truth is harmful to their twisted and sick ideology that seeks to destroy as many lives as possible. His landmark case allows for people to transition into legal non-binary status and they definitely are not going to let it be known that the very person that sought and attained the first legal non-binary status in this country has come forth with his testimony about the entire process and that he is now seeking to regain his male status (which he says is legally challenging, as the Social Security Administration reportedly refused to accept a doctor’s letter stating he was a biological male and that they forced him to claim that he had undergone a transition to male, despite the fact that that’s not the case at all, but the ideology is more important than the individual to these people).
Shupe also called out the doctors and judges who facilitated the transitions because they were aware of his mental health problems and ignored them in favor of being “woke”: “Why didn’t they (the doctors) force me to go to mental health for an evaluation about why I felt the sex change (to female) was a failure instead of giving me yet another one (to non-binary)?” And regarding the judge that allowed him to transition to “non-binary”: “The Oregon judge physically and mentally harmed me by silently rubber-stamping the non-binary court order to advance a transgender agenda, to which she has ties.” According to PJ Media, before the proceeding had begun, “Shupe’s lawyer told him not to worry because the judge herself had a transgender kid.”
The entire thing is very messed up from top to bottom. He was lied to about the reason he had mental health issues and pushed him down a slope of further psychological but also physical and emotional issues and pain.
Do you wonder why I so often call the Left “evil” and “of the devil”? Because of this kind of stuff. And while no actual political party was mentioned here, we all know what side of the political aisle supports this kind of stuff. Only the Left would be willing to lie to someone about the reasons for their problems and put them down a road of self-destruction all for the sake of a political agenda meant to divide and destroy the American culture and the nuclear family, not to mention any sense of reason and the definition of truth.
The Left are the ones to destroy people’s lives. The Left are the ones to say “my truth” or “his truth” or “her truth” as though truth were entirely subjective. The Left are the only ones who would be heartless enough to destroy people’s lives all for the sake of political dominance and the advancement of their agenda.
I sincerely hope and pray that James wins his legal cases and, following this, he will turn his life to Christ, who is the only one who can actually help him with his mental health issues, let alone his other life issues.

Following the death of Major General Qassem Soleimani, for which the fake news media is still in mourning, Iran promised to retaliate harshly and “vengefully” for that. However, their retaliatory strike ended in nothing more than a face-saving move for the terrorist regime.
According to multiple sources, Iran fired fifteen missiles targeting two Iraqi military bases that host American military, with four of the fifteen having failed. While many Leftists celebrated this with smugness, once the dust had settled, we found that there have been no American casualties and very minimal, if any, damage was caused.
The President of the United States tweeted: “All is well! Missiles launched from Iran at two military bases located in Iraq. Assessment of casualties & damages taking place now. So far, so good! We have the most powerful and well equipped military anywhere in the world, by far! I will be making a statement tomorrow morning.”
In his statement the following morning, the POTUS said: “As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. I am pleased to inform you, the American people should be extremely grateful and happy: No Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.”
“Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned, and a very good thing for the world. No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of America’s men and women in uniform.”
“For far too long, all the way back to 1979, to be exact, nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading state sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.” In the statement, he also emphasized that the only reason Iran was even capable of launching ballistic missiles is because of the Iran Nuke Deal: “Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013 and they were given $150 billion. The missiles fired last night at us & our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration.”
Assistant to Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Jonathan Hoffman also issued a statement: “At approximately 5:30 p.m. (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil…”
This stands in stark contrast with Iranian state TV (parroted by MSNBC, because fake news media will always give us fake news if it hurts Donald Trump) which claims there were around 30 U.S. casualties as a result of the strikes. Now, I wonder just why exactly it is that, while we say there are no U.S. casualties, Iran is saying there are as part of their retaliatory strike.
And before anyone tries to suggest that we are the ones trying to save-face here, keep in mind just who is POTUS right now. If there were U.S. casualties, Trump wouldn’t lie about it and we would retaliate in turn. What appears to be reality here is that Iran tried to save-face by “retaliating” for the death of Soleimani, intentionally avoided American casualties and then tried to claim it was an Iranian victory in their state-owned television stations to lie to their own people and claim that they “avenged” Soleimani.
This way, they can avoid a full-blown war with the U.S., as they know they don’t have the military capability to fight us and they can pretend to their own people that Soleimani has been avenged and can claim victory while working towards de-escalation, which even Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, following the “retaliation” strikes, said: “We [Iran] do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression.”
Rich coming from Iran that they would claim victimhood over the killing of a terrorist who killed hundreds of our soldiers, but the important part is the beginning: they do not want war or further escalations. Granted, these words are pretty much contradicted by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who said that the strikes were “not enough”, though did not suggest that more immediate military action would be taken.
What do I think the story here is? Again, an attempt to save face for Iran. Their state-owned news stations claim that there were multiple casualties and, given that everyone expects Trump not to do anything because no American lives were lost, they can claim that Trump was “scared to act” in response and that Iran has achieved a “great victory”, as we were “slapped” the night of the strikes, as Khamenei tweeted, but in reality, it’s entirely possible that Iran will seek to de-escalate from here on out, even if it outwardly claims that further “vengeance” will be taken.
Of course, time will tell if peace will be achieved with Iran, but if THAT was their retaliation for killing their most VALUABLE terrorist General, I think World War III is a long way off, to the dismay of the American Left.
But this is not really why I am writing this piece. Read the title again: “A Strange Day Regarding Iran”. Iran attacking our military bases and strutting around like they achieved something major is par for the course and far from strange. Delusional dictators always pretend that any battle with an enemy goes their way and is a great “victory” for them. But there are other developments that have occurred on the very day of these strikes.
Let’s begin with what I think is the most normal of the two, but the timing is fairly brow-raising: Iran being hit with two earthquakes, one of them being close to a nuclear power plant. Hearing this, I immediately thought a couple of things: either this was A) a test of nuclear weapons by Iran (though that thought was shot down as soon as I found out this was a power plant, not a testing facility), or B) this was God punishing Iran and setting their nuclear program back a ways.
While I would certainly attribute things like these to God, who made the Earth, I say that this is the most normal of the two occurrences because, according to Fox News: “Iran lies on major seismic faults and has an average of one earthquake per day.” Earthquakes are very frequent in the country, so that’s why I doubt the earthquakes were caused by nuclear explosions (what’s more, not all nuclear bombs can create earthquakes, particularly ones that read 4.9 on the Richter scale, and it’s not even certain that Iran has any nukes to speak of), so in all likelihood, this one was just a normal earthquake that coincidentally occurred near a nuclear power plant.
The second thing that occurred that I think is far more suspicious is the fact that a Ukrainian Boeing 737 single-aisle plane crashed shortly after takeoff from Imam Khomeini International Airport. The cause was suspected to have been engine failure, and the Ukrainian embassy even initially released a statement pointing to engine failure, but later retracted that statement.
BBC reporter Ali Hashem tweeted out a video of the plane being in total fire before eventually crashing.
The video is bone-chilling and raises the question: was it really engine failure? Because the entire plane was set ablaze. Usually, when there is an engine fire, only the turbine is on fire and even under such rare circumstances, there are many ways for the crew and the pilots specifically to remedy the situation. The first thing pilots will do when there is an engine fire is switch off the engine, allow the plane to glide and look to land in the nearest airport. But looking at the video again, while the dark of night makes the fire easy to contrast, it looks as though the entire plane was on fire.
What’s more, all 176 souls on the flight – the passengers and the crew – perished in this crash. Unless the flight crew was extremely inexperienced and incompetent, an engine fire alone couldn’t have brought down the bird like this, resulting in this many deaths as well. From the video, it’s clear that the plane outright fell out of the sky. It didn’t seem to glide very much and, again, it was completely engulfed in flames. Engine failure is hardly ever a death sentence, particularly in this day and age when aviation technology is so advanced and does not even often result in an engine fire.
What makes this entire situation even more suspicious is the fact that Iran is refusing to turn over the black box of the plane to Boeing. If this were just an accident, and Iran knew or at least believed this was an accident, they’d be willing to hand over the black box to try and discern the cause for this tragic and very fatal crash.
Now, I know what you may be thinking: “Is this the retaliation that Iran was actually seeking against us?” I honestly doubt it. While 176 people did die on this flight and that is most definitely tragic, there wasn’t a single American on board. According to the Ukrainian minister for foreign affairs, the victims included 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians (including the nine crew), 10 Swedes, 4 Afghans, 3 Germans and 3 British.
Furthermore, what also makes this unlikely (though admittedly, not impossible) to be engine failure is the fact that the aircraft was serviced two days prior and was less than four years old, according to Ukrainian International Airlines. UIA President Yevgeny Dykhne said in a press briefing: “The aircraft was in good condition… We guarantee the serviceability of our aircraft and the high qualification of our crews.”
The aircraft was too new and too recently serviced (and nothing wrong was reported about the craft following service) for engine failure to have been the likely culprit (though, again, it’s not impossible). The fire also, again, consumed the entire plane and there are measures that pilots can take to quickly remedy the situation. And even assuming both engines caught on fire, resulting in the pilots having to cut off both engines, many planes are able to glide for a considerable amount of time while in search of an emergency airport (which they always have to fly close to according to aviation guidelines). This crash happened not too long after takeoff, so there is not much reason for it to not have been able to circle around for an emergency landing. Of course, that would be assuming the plane wasn’t on fire, which it was.
If there was an engine fire, I doubt the pilots wouldn’t have had enough time shortly after takeoff to remedy the situation and glide the aircraft to safety. It was engulfed in flames completely and fell out of the sky. This, plus the fact that Iran refuses to turn over the black box, and I can’t help but speculate that they shot it down.
Whether it was on accident as a result of the missile strikes or intentional, it’s uncertain, but it’s the most likely reason available – certainly more likely than engine failure (and again “engine failure” does not always even result in a fire). While I don’t want to peddle in conspiracy theories and while I don’t have any evidence to suggest Iran definitely shot the plane down, it makes more sense for that to be the case, even if it was an accident, than for it to have been just from “engine failure”.
What makes me think this was also an accident is the fact that not one American was on board, which goes against any idea that this was a retaliatory strike, and the fact that Iran is not outright claiming responsibility for this. They usually claim responsibility for the death and destruction they cause (though not always).
Either way, that was a very peculiar day regarding Iran. Their “retaliatory strike” ended up as nothing more than an attempt to save face with zero casualties, one earthquake occurred near a nuclear power plant and Iran might’ve shot down a Ukrainian plane (another reason I don’t think this was a retaliatory strike is because this plane was en route to Kiev, Ukraine) whether on purpose or on accident.

We are roughly a week into the new decade, but it appears that the phoniness and the b.s. of the last decade will carry over into this one (not that that’s at all an unexpected development). While I could talk at length about the fake news media’s literal mourning over the death of Soleimani to tell you how much these people suck, let’s look at a different story entirely: the Australian bushfires.
Much of the Australian country/continent is on fire, with millions upon millions of acres and animals being affected by this horrible tragedy. Without missing a beat, the Left has sought to make this entire story about climate change, despite the fact that the fires were set by arsonists. In fact, according to New South Wales Police Force, 24 people have been charged with deliberately starting bushfires and 183 total people currently face legal action in the state.
But while there is plenty to talk about regarding this and how it makes zero sense to blame climate change for this (it would make zero sense to blame climate change even if this wasn’t arson), I would like to focus particularly on a graphic that ABC News shared on Twitter, for which they got absolutely destroyed.
ABC News tweeted out the above picture. As you can see, it is a map of Australia superimposed onto the United States mainland to show people roughly how big the fires are. But of course, since this is a fake news organization we are talking about, this is far from the truth.
The map makes it look like the fire would cover roughly a third of our own country, with many states being shown to be mostly or completely on fire. This, of course, was meant to scare people into believing Australia is in serious trouble (not saying it isn’t, as massive fires are always trouble, but it’s not because of climate change and the fires are nowhere near that massive) and that action must be taken, particularly action against climate change, and particularly action regarding passing legislation that will take people’s rights and freedoms away because that somehow helps the planet.
All a bunch of b.s. that even the actual ARTICLE FROM ABC NEWS WHERE YOU FIND THAT GRAPHIC refutes. From ABC News: “The raging fires in Australia have burned over 12.35 million acres of land – with at least 24 people killed and more than 2,000 homes destroyed by the blazes, officials said. The size of the fires across the country are twice as large as the state of Maryland and bigger than several other states, including Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New Jersey.”
Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure that “twice as large as the state of Maryland” does not equal to nearly the entire country or even a third of it, as the graphic shows. The square mileage of Australia is 2.97 million square miles, which is roughly 78% of the U.S. (3.79 square miles). Maryland is only 12,407 square miles, so the fire would have to be 24,814 square miles. Still huge, no doubt, but nowhere close to what ABC News would want us to believe. In fact, the size of the fire is roughly only 1% of the country. As I said, that is big, but not quite as big as the fire on ABC News’ pants right now.
Again, I’m not outright trying to downplay the situation in Australia and say that it’s practically not important or not a big deal, because it is. 24 people were arrested and charged with arson for this, and in total, 183 people face some sort of legal action in the state because of these fires. 53 people are facing legal action for failing to comply with the state’s fire ban and another 47 people have faced some legal action for discarding lit cigarettes or matches on the land.
But as one can clearly tell, this is not a matter of climate change in the least and it doesn’t help the Left’s cause to so causally and blatantly lie about the size of the fires (or at least, it shouldn’t, considering just READING the actual piece will contradict the fake graphic). In fact, these bushfires are not even particularly unique. Breitbart News has reported in the past: “The link between arsonists and the deadly fires that devastate Australia every summer is well known and documented, with the rate of deliberately lit fires escalating rapidly during the school holiday period.”
In other words, Australian bushfires are very common, particularly during the time when dumb, young people are out of school, which is why charges can vary “from cautions through to criminal charges” according to NSW police and intentionally setting fire to bushes can result in up to 21 years in prison. This happens practically every single year, with this one being noteworthy in how bad it is, and even then, this fire is overhyped. Worse fires have been recorded, with one having occurred in 1939, when 2 million hectares were burnt to ash in New Zealand. What’s more, it’s not even like these are the hottest temperatures that Australia has ever recorded. The summer of 1938-39 was hotter and the hottest temperature recorded in the country, according to an Australian scientist writing about this very topic.
Climate change cannot even begin to be blamed here, but you and I both know that the Left will absolutely try their hardest. If they can blame a black man killing or attacking Jews on white supremacy, they can blame this on climate change because that is how pathetic these people are.
But as far as ABC News goes, again, this doesn’t really surprise me in the least. Fearmongering is par for the course for these people when it comes to climate change. They have to convince their audience, and even themselves, that the entire world is literally on fire despite the very clear evidence against that, or they have no agenda to push.
Make this reason #4782 why the fake news media is not about journalism but about propagandism.

The economy is doing fantastic and the President is enjoying great unemployment numbers, so much so that he even created a job opening for Iran’s Major General last week. Unfortunately, one should expect there to be one less job out there because whoever thought of making comedian Ricky Gervais the host of the 2020 Golden Globe awards has probably been fired at this point.
What am I talking about? Well, while I did not care to watch the actual award show (largely because I don’t much care for what 99% of these celebrities were going to say on them, which ended up proving Gervais’ point), many on Twitter shared videos and clips of Gervais hosting the award show and absolutely throttling the Hollywood elites that frequent such events.
Gervais slammed the Hollywood elites for politicizing absolutely everything, saying “You know nothing about the real world.” He also went on to say: “Apple roared into the TV game with ‘The Morning Show,’ a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company that runs sweat shops in China. So, well, you say you’re woke, but the companies you work for – I mean, unbelievable, Apple, Amazon, Disney. If ISIS started a streaming service, you would call your agent, wouldn’t you? So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right? You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and f**k off. No one cares about your views on politics or culture.”
As I said, Ricky Gervais told the Hollywood elites present at the event what the rest of America wishes we could tell them (though with less swearing, for some of us, but the sentiment is about right). These are the very people who openly wish to harm the President of the United States (look at George Lopez replying to the Iranian’s offer of assassinating Trump for $80 million by saying “we’ll do it for half”, or look at Robert de Niro often expressing how he would like to punch Trump or throw feces at him) and who believe any belief in the God of the Bible is an affront to “human progress” and is inherently racist and bigoted and hateful by nature. They believe that if you love this country, you are an ignorant fool at best and a racist fascist at worst (often the latter) and someone who either ignores or agrees with the injustices of the past (while they themselves both profit off this country’s system and ignore the injustices of other countries, such as the fact that Iran publicly executes, often in a gruesome manner, homosexuals aka the people these dinguses are supposed to be supporting).
No one watches a movie hoping to get lectured about a topic the people making the movie have no clue about. Entertainment is supposed to offer some sort of escape from the troubles of the real world, not bring those troubles to the forefront and accuse the viewer of wittingly or unwittingly contributing to them.
And yet, these people do not heed these words, not even on the actual award show. One actress, who ironically was visibly pregnant, gave a speech about a woman’s "right" to choose to kill her own baby and that she wouldn’t have made it in Hollywood if she hadn’t had an abortion, which is total b.s., but signifies the heartless and selfish nature of these people. Another one tried to lecture people about climate change and about how her home country, Australia, was on fire because of climate change (the fires were caused by arson, not climate change, but what’s the truth to stop anyone from getting the opportunity to feel self-righteous and lambast people for “not doing enough” about climate change, despite the fact that she, herself, most likely doesn’t do diddly squat about it either, even if something actually could be done about it?)
But regardless, Ricky Gervais didn’t stop there. As the host, he got plenty of opportunity to speak and he took full advantage. He said the following:
“Tonight isn’t just about the people in front of the camera. In this room are some of the most important TV and film executives in the world, people from every background, but they all have one thing in common: they’re all terrified of Ronan Farrow.”
To refresh your memories, Ronan Farrow is a journalist (the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow) who helped uncover the sexual abuses of Harvey Weinstein against actresses and other women in Hollywood, which sparked the “#MeToo” movement (before it, too, quickly got heavily politicized and taken over by the Left to attack any and all men, regardless of any wrongdoing or lack thereof having been committed).
He continued: “He’s coming for you. He’s coming for you. Look, talking of all you perverts, it was a big year, it was a big year for pedophile movies, Surviving R. Kelly, Leaving Never Land, Two Popes. [audience groans] Shut up, shut up, I don’t care, I don’t care.”
“No one cares about movies anymore, no one goes to the cinema, no one watches network TV. Everyone’s watching Netflix. This show should just be me coming out, going ‘Well done, Netflix, you win everything. Good night’.”
“But no, we drag it out three hours, you could binge watch the entire first season of ‘Afterlife’ instead of watching this show. That’s a show about a man who wants to kill himself because his wife dies of cancer and it’s still more fun than this. Okay, spoiler alert, season two is on the way, so in the end obviously he didn’t kill himself – just like Jeffrey Epstein.”
While some in the crowd laughed at the joke, there were audible groans at that, to which Gervais replied: “Shut up, I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care. You had to make your own way here, your own plane, didn’t you?”
At one point, he also took some jabs at the celebrities present and those who could not make it there: “You all look lovely all dolled up, you came here in your limos. I came here in a limo and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman. It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to her. And her dad was in ‘Wild Hogs,’ so…”
Gervais also added: “Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere and, by the end, his date was too old for him. Even Prince Andrew is like, ‘Come on Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50.’”
In essence, Gervais points out not only the utter ignorance of Hollywood and their hypocrisy, but also the disgusting pedophile and sex slave ring that exists in “tinsel town”. Of course, this prompted SJWs who idolize and practically deify these celebrities to think of Gervais’ actions as “controversial” or him being a “jerk” for it.
Think of the guy what you will (he’s a Leftist, so I have my own reasons not to particularly like him, or at least, agree with everything he ever says, but to his credit, he is a prominent supporter of free speech for all, which is more than I can say for most other Leftists), but he told these people something no one has ever dared to tell them: the truth. They don’t know anything of what they talk about. They oppose the killing of Soleimani and support Iran in this, despite the fact that Iran kills its own citizens on the regular and executes homosexuals, as well as generally treats women as second-class citizens at best and have been since the revolution in 1979 that installed the current dictatorship system.
They lecture people about “doing the right thing” while accepting tons of money from China. They lecture people about climate change from the comfort of one of their many, often massive, homes that make up massive carbon footprints, or from the comfort of their private jets as they fly to one of these events or to a different country or state to film some scenes. They lecture people about “women’s rights” and “women’s liberation” despite the fact that there is nothing more enslaving than living life based on your carnal desires and avoiding as much responsibility as possible by committing acts of murder that are, for some reason, considered not only legal, but morally right by many in this country.
They lecture people about “women’s empowerment” while being complicit in or, at best, complacent about the sex trade that exists in Hollywood, as well as the pedophile rings that exist. They lecture us about being “tolerant” of others while they openly mock and display hatred towards anyone they disagree with, to the point where they consider such dissenters to be sons of Hitler, traitors to their race or traitors to their gender, or any combination of the three.
These people are as fake as the movies they star in and Ricky Gervais took them to task over such phony self-righteousness and utter hypocrisy.

Back in late October, the Trump administration greenlit an operation to kill the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which resulted in a raid on his compound and the terrorist to blow himself up (alongside three of his children) to avoid being killed or arrested by U.S. forces. Following this raid, the Left went into a fit because we killed the leader of ISIS, proving even more that they are adamantly against the United States.
In early January of 2020, following an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, which was orchestrated by Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian general who once visited the Obama White House and has killed hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans, the United States used an MQ-9 Reaper drone to fire missiles at a convoy of terrorists leaving Baghdad International Airport. This strike not only killed dozens of terrorists, but it has been confirmed now by State Department officials that one of the deaths was the aforementioned general Soleimani.
Retired Lt. Col. James Carafano said: “The reported deaths of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani and the Iraqi commander of the militia that killed an American last week was a bold and decisive military action made possible by excellent intelligence and the courage of America’s service members. His death is a huge loss for Iran’s regime and its Iraqi proxies, and a major operational and psychological victory for the United States.”
Phillip Smyth, an expert on Iran-controlled Shia militias and the Middle East at the Washington Institute said: “This is a major blow. I would argue that this is probably the most major decapitation strike the United States has ever carried out… This is a man who controlled a transnational foreign legion that was controlling governments in numerous different countries… He had a hell of a lot of power and a hell of a lot of control. You have to be a strong leader in order to get these people to work with you, know how and when to play them off one another, and also know which Iranians do I need within the IRGC-QF (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a designated terrorist organization), which Lebanese do I need which, Iraqis do I need… that’s not something you can just pick up at a local five and dime. It takes decades of experience.”
Other military experts agreed that the killing of Soleimani was more significant than bin Laden or al-Baghdadi.
The Pentagon said in a statement: “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the nation. This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans. The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.”
The Pentagon also said that Soleimani had orchestrated numerous attacks on U.S.-led coalition bases in Iraq over the last few months, including an attack on December 27th, which killed an American contractor and wounded U.S. servicemembers as well as Iraqi personnel.
Carafano also said: “The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps… led by Suleimani, was responsible for the deaths of more than 600 Americans in Iraq between 2003-2011, and countless more injured. He was a chief architect behind Iran’s continuing reign of terror in the region. This strike against one of the world’s most odious terrorists is no different than the mission which took out Osama bin Laden – it is, in fact, even more justifiable since he was in a foreign country directing terrorist attacks against Americans.”
Suffice to say that Soleimani was an evil piece of crap and no one but the bad guys would miss him. Enter the American Left, the fake news media and even a Hollywood elite being adamantly against this operation to kill a top enemy of the United States.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) complained on Twitter: “Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question. The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?”
A couple of things to say about this. First, I don’t remember Democrats complaining when Obama didn’t notify them that we would be killing bin Laden. That’s because the Commander-in-Chief does not need to notify Congress that he is going to kill a terrorist. These idiots also complained that Trump didn’t notify them that he was killing Baghdadi. The reason being that he didn’t want the secret of the operation being spread, potentially saving Baghdadi and putting American servicemembers’ lives in danger. Granted, we used a drone instead of armed forces this time around, but we know just how partisan these people are. They would’ve blabbed about targeting Soleimani in an effort to save his life and keep Trump from scoring any political victory.
How do I know these people are partisan hacks? Aside from EVERYTHING they’ve done over the past few years, look at how these people are reacting to these news. Instead of being elated that an objectively EVIL guy is dead, they all let their Trump Derangement Syndrome take over and are DEFENDING Iran.
Just three days ago, and moving on to the second point I wanted to make, Sen. Chris Murphy also tweeted the following regarding the attack on our embassy: “The attack on our embassy in Baghdad is horrifying but predictable. Trump has rendered America impotent in the Middle East. No one fears us, no one listens to us. America has been reduced to huddling in safe rooms, hoping the bad guys will go away. What a disgrace.”
Three days ago, Murphy was complaining that we weren’t doing anything and claimed that America was “impotent” in the Middle East because of Trump (totally ignoring the fact that Benghazi was attacked under Obama’s watch and he did nothing to help there). Fast-forward three days and now he’s complaining about taking action against THE GUY WHO ORCHESTRATED THE ATTACK ON THE EMBASSY?!
Not that I find this the least bit surprising. They will attack Trump regardless of what he does. He doesn’t do something against terrorists who attacked our embassy? “Trump is weak”. He does something against terrorists who attacked our embassy? “Trump just started World War III”. It’s all a load of b.s. and no one in their right mind would take these people seriously for even a second.
But moving on to the other anti-American traitors, we find none other than the Washington Post, the official terrorist mourning organization, reporting: “Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports.”
Don’t know if this quite beats “austere religious scholar” but it’s an embarrassment that it can come so close. Soleimani, as previously explained, was not Iran’s most “revered military leader”. He was a terrorist piece of garbage responsible for the deaths of hundreds of servicemembers and possibly thousands of Americans. And the only ones that “revered” the demon were people within the terrorist regime.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared a video on Twitter of Iraqis “dancing on the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more.” And why would they be happy at Soleimani’s death? Because he was also the guy responsible for the deaths and kidnappings of protesters that had been troubling the terrorist regime for years in the neighboring country (reportedly, he caused the deaths of upwards of 500 people and injured another 20,000 protesters). We killed the guy who helped oppress the people of IRAQ and the people of Iraq are thankful.
Of course, this doesn’t stop the Left from further trying to paint Trump as a “warmonger” who just ignited the third World War and are cowering at what Iran might do in retaliation (because they were clearly oh, so peaceful before we killed Soleimani).
Despite the very clear evidence that Soleimani was a terrorist and that this was an attack in response to him ORCHESTRATING an attack on OUR embassy, the Left says that this is an act of war. By no means. This is an act of self-defense as a result of that attack on our embassy. It is an act of retribution for the THOUSANDS of American, not to mention Iranian and Iraqi lives, that he helped to take. It is an act of strength to show the terrorist regime that Obama is not president anymore and they can’t get away with whatever they want anymore.
This will not lead to World War III. I doubt this will even lead to full-blown war against Iran. Richard Engel said that “Iranians will consider US killing Soleimani an act of war. A proxy war could erupt. Likely in Iraq, but also a danger in Lebanon and Israel. This is a big escalation.” To which I say: Soleimani was already orchestrating numerous proxy wars in the region anyway. I don’t care if they consider this an act of war or an act of crapping on their sandwich; they will say whatever they want to justify further actions (and the media will be delighted by such actions). At most, this would cause a proxy war, but nothing more severe than that. If Iran actually had the means to fight us in a war, there’d be nothing stopping them from doing so. Unlike ISIS or al-Qaeda terrorists, Iran can’t go into hiding.
Now, Leftists could say: “See? This will only make things worse. This will cause the Iranians to attack us.” They were already attacking us and they have been FOR DECADES. It’s not like Trump attacked the Iranians unprovoked. They have been pulling crap against us, plotting and funding terrorist acts against us for decades at this point, pretty much since the Mullahs took over in 1979. Killing Soleimani will help deter future terrorist acts simply due to how many he was responsible for and was in the process of planning.
But what is perhaps the worst part of the Left’s clear betrayal of this country was something that actress Rose McGowan tweeted:
“Dear Iran, the USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us.” She also tweeted a gif of what appears to be an Iranian flag, but edited to have a sun emoji and a lion emoji in the middle part, for some reason.
But regardless of that strange gif, it is pretty clear how spineless the Left is. Thankfully, McGowan does not represent the U.S. and the VAST MAJORITY of Americans are happy that a terrorist is dead. One Twitter user, who claims to be Iranian, replied to her: “I’m Iranian by birth. Iranians are happy. Do you realize that this guy was [a] psychopath? Part of a group that tortured, raped, sodomized its own citizens? Do you have any f***ing clue or do you just want attention? Soleimani makes Harvey Weinstein look like a saint. Let that sink!”
I would assume McGowan wants as much attention as Jane Fonda did by siding with the Vietcongs. Back then, it was Hanoi Jane. Today, we have Tehran McGowan, it seems. These idiot Leftists have zero clue what they are talking about and most likely have never even heard of Soleimani before recently, otherwise, they really wouldn’t be calling Trump’s administration the “terrorist regime” here.
The Left does not support the United States. They hate it when we succeed. They hate it when we win at any capacity. They think we should be groveling on the ground, begging for other countries’ “forgiveness” for our “past sins” and “transgressions”. If you need any more proof that the Left hates this country, look at what they are doing right this moment.
“For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.”
