Robert Gates disarmed America, dares to attack Trump

Just a heads up given the previous thread's discussion of giving up control over the ICANN. I wrote a post a few weeks ago about a troubling report called the Roadmap for the Next Administration. It just came to my attention within the last hour that the co-authors of that roadmap are also involved with creating the new form of governance template for ICANN.

Also heavily involved with the UN, Open Data, and new forms of governance for us serfs generally. I am still looking at the papers mentioned in footnotes.

That article on Gates is outstanding.

The new movie, a $100 million-plus production from Lions Gate, doesn’t shy away from unflattering portrayals of BP executives, who are depicted as more concerned about budgets and schedules than safety.

Well, of course.

I liked gates, back when he worked for a rough hewn type like bill casey, but the last decade or so, he seems to have lost any lessons from that experience,

btw, they leaked the trump briefing, just to make a rhetorical point,

From Taranto's column today:

“Obama on Peres: ‘I Could Somehow See Myself in His Story’ ”—headline, Politico.com, Sept. 30

rse

Buckeye-Joi Ito, the Director of the MIT Media Lab is also involved. That means that there is a tie to that twitter/UN Pulse arrangement because Alex "Sandy" Pentland is both on that task force and an mit prof tied to media lab.

buccaneer morgan

it's funny how obama can raise 1.5 billion (mostly from the subprime legion of doom, not once but twice, and yet he speaks out against corporate power, ayudanme, 'help me out, here'

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/september_2016/voters_don_t_trust_media_fact_checking

So the trust in the accuracy of the "fact checkers" is about the same as the trust in the overall media. Bottom line is about 70% of likely voters distrust the media.

The good news is that value represents all likely voters. When you break it down by party affiliation you get Republicans 79% Independents 69% and Democrats 40%

In other words, for all the anti-Trump/pro-Hillary propaganda that the leftwing media is spewing out now to influence the election, roughly 70% of Independent voters realize its nothing but crap.

Buckeye

So I went and read his bio Robin and this jumped out:

"Soon after coming to MIT, Ito introduced mindfulness meditation training to the Media Lab. "

Well that sounds like a good use of a STEM education. /sarc.

rse

From looking at the ICANN blueprint, it appears to me the UN was already taking over control of the Internet. The surrender of ICANN appears to be so the US can no longer be an impediment to that desire to control information. That not only fits with what is really going on in ed, but it fits with a push back in the early 70s in connection with the declaration of the UN GA of the New International Economic Order.

I think I may have to go off the fact it is now 5 o'clock in bermuda and st John, New Brunswick.

"Hey, sorry to squash your job, coal miners, but it's for your own good and Gaia loves you."

Then shift the pension obligation of these workers to the US taxpayer--in the name of fairness to widows and orphans--with backing the Uniparty.© Et voila.

yes, he will be imminently fair, I'm cereal,


On July 16, 2012, Judge Garaufis ordered the New York City Fire Department to implement racial quotas to address grievances from minorities who failed entrance exams. His ruling requires hiring off a list of priority hire candidates, two of every five newly hired firefighters to be black and one of every five Hispanic, until the department has fulfilled the court-ordered quota of 186 black and 107 Hispanic hires or until the list is exhausted. This is due to a lawsuit that alleges two placement exams (Written Exams 7029 or 2043) for the FDNY were discriminatory against blacks and Hispanics, because fewer minorities passed the exam than whites.[1]

Don't hold your breathe.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ran out to the grocery and Seann Hannity was on my radio. He had Carrie Prejean, another gal with an Hispanic name, and a former Miss Wisconsin in the Miss USA pageant.

I didn't hear all of this, but Carrie Prejean said that when all of that controversy came down on her, Donald Trump was the only one who stood by her and defended her. She said he even gave her his private cell phone number and always answered.

The Miss Wisconsin lady has some sort of incurable disease and is now in home care. She said that when Trump found out about her illness, he offered all sorts of help and also made sure her son has a full ride scholarship to college. (I don't know if he personally donated or hosted a fundraiser.) He also wrote her a beautiful letter about how she was the bravest woman he knew.

I didn't hear the third woman, as she had been on before I turned on the radio. All three of them are outraged at Hillary Clinton using this story and at the Venezuelan woman who accepted Trump's help and thanked him and then made up a story about him. (And once again, I ask how she managed to get US citizenship and how quickly and without a good background check.)

The more I see, the more I think Trump is a pretty nice guy who has been terribly maligned by the democrats and the press.

Captain Hate

I'm not; none of these mutts takes this seriously.

Jack is Back!

Sorry, I don't believe the Ohio story.

I think they are sample ballots each party sends out to their regiistered voters to show them how to vote.

I would suggest like all airplane crashes to wait for the real story.

Beasts of England

Sounds like a good time to liquidate 401s, etc., and convert into real assets. The penalty will be much cheaper than the confiscation...

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Regarding the ballots, for all we know Kasich put them there.

I sure would be looking to see who had access to that warehouse, and of course the crime scene/fingerprints thing.

MY solution is that all states should have paper ballots with a new form showing they were printed AFTER September 30. All ballots should be locked in a vault in a bank, and removed only the morning of election day by armed state police, who transport them to voting areas under TV cameras.

And if this adds 6 hours to the voting day, so be it.

Also, hand counting under video surveillance with results announced on camera when counting is finished. Ballots nor people do not leave the room until counted.

Captain Hate

Sample ballots are usually clearly marked as such with an obvious voter ID number. Not sure what was in those crates from the article.

BeenThereDoneThat

And if they were ballots identical to official ballots, what's to prevent the crooked Dem party from using the Democrat pre-marked "sample ballots" to boost her numbers? Maybe I've grown too cynical, but I don't trust the Dem's to do ANYTHING honorable. Especially, as desperate as they are to keep their corrupt power structure in place, to protect them from prosecution in a Trump administration.

Jack is Back!

CH,

You can print those voter ID's later. These are templates. I believe there is voter fraud but on this scale? Hard to believe because even the GOP have security people who watch out for this in every state.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

If they are sample ballots, why are they stored in an obscure warehouse and not at party headquarters?

MM,

Because even political parties have to leaser warehouse space from time to time. You really think that those storage bins could fit into a campaign HQ?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

We don't have sample ballots handed out here in Indiana. The newspapers print out some information and you can get it on the web site, but we have electronic voting, so sample ballots would not make sense.

I certainly do think those "sample" ballots could fit in a campaign HQ. The dem party's main offices are not cubbyholes.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Crowd in Novi reported to be 25,000 to 30,000.

Not sure if that is inside or counting people who couldn't get in.

MM,

Those are Ohio ballots not Indiana.

You have a right to be suspicious and I have the same right to call Bullshit on the story. I think its phony and will await confirmation.

Porchlight

The article source looks sketchy, and the "Ballot Box" lettering on the boxes looks very Photoshopped.

But if one is going to cheat with paper ballots, this is probably how it's done. Volunteers in a warehouse somewhere filling out fake ones.

That's ok. I am not mad, just pointing out why I am suspicious.

MM,

I always suspicious of stories that show up on these minor websites. It just seemed to much of a story fitting a paranoia. Not saying you are but some times we want these things to fit our theories which may or may not be a reality.

Now machine politics in major Dem urban areas don't even need that level of sophistication. They just need to make sure the cameras aren't on.

Captain Hate

There were enough cases of suspicious Ohio activity in 2012 that the party of stoopid turned a blind eye to that nothing would surprise me.

I saw on the Reddit thread 25-30 thousand, don't know where it came from. Apparently CNN is showing part of this.

MM,

I was looking at the RSBN stream and they showed the crowd. It didn't look quite that big to me but could have been 10K for sure.

Commission on Presidential Debates admits Trump was right about his microphone. I also thought, not just in the hall, but over the broadcast, they were turning up his personal mike to pick up his breathing. Rush explained how this works on his show. It was not the case with Hillary's mike, however. (I know, I know - crazy conspiracy theory!)

Yes, maryrose, it is rather pathetic is it not? I mean, how obvious can they be? Rush said they were compressing the sound (?) I think was the term, only on Trump's mic and that made every breath sound as loud as his speaking voice. If they did it to both candidates, you might give them leeway that it was an error of the sound technicians.

I'm so mad about their crooked tricks! I almost think he should have these things monitored and just stop in the middle of the debate and demand that they switch microphones.

I just hope everyone hears of their plots. It makes me more determined to vote,get every family member to the polls, and wear my deplorable t-shirt everywhere I go!!

He also voted for a couple of other really bad things. The partial birth abortion thing comes to mind.

He makes ads touting Hoosier values. Then he goes to DC and voted opposite of what the voters wanted.

People herer didn't forget that stuff.

They also didn't forget his desire to live in DC, his edict that his wife couldn't wear pants (back in the 80's) and his connection to lobbyists.

Captain Hate

The part about him refusing to ALLOW his wife to wear slacks just points out the pathetic state of opposition research and willingness to employ it in the party of stoopid. Lee Atwater would be sooooo pissed off.

Jonah Goldberg is going to be the Guest Programmer for October on Turner Classic Movies:


This month TCM welcomes two Guest Programmers--writer/editors Jonah Goldberg and Leon Wieseltier--who choose their films with an eye toward "Ideology in Movies." Goldberg is a syndicated columnist who writes about politics and culture for National Review, where he is also a senior editor. Wieseltier is a scholar, critic and contributing editor to The Atlantic, and former literary editor of The New Republic.

In alternating segments with host Ben Mankiewicz, the pair presents four movies. Wieseltier, a staunch liberal, chooses Elia Kazan's America America (1963), because it leads to a discussion of today's "widespread vilification of immigrants." His second pick is Fritz Lang's Fury (1936), which Wieseltier links to the current "ascendancy of demagoguery in our politics." Goldberg picks Kazan's A Face in the Crowd (1957), noting that he comes "from a branch of conservatism that is nervous about excessive political enthusiasm"; and Frank Capra's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) in part because he considers its crusading hero to be "the first Tea-Partier."

It's next Wednesday, October 5th. I think I'll be skipping TCM that night.
