Deep State Unmasked: The Internal Revenue Service

The Project Veritas campaign against the Deep State has already exposed subversive enemies within in the State Department, the Department of Justice, and the Government Accountability Office. Now it hits every taxpayer’s favorite federal agency, the Internal Revenue Service, lifting a rock to reveal moonbat foot soldier Thomas Sheehy. Yet another member of Democratic Socialists of America, Sheehy confirms that federal employees are not easily fired:

Jimmy Kimmel Calls for Brett Kavanaugh’s Public Castration

Maybe some good will come of the repugnant farce stop-at-nothing Democrats have made of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Sharks have been jumped. Who will ever take the insufferably pretentious New Yorker seriously again after it stooped to the lowest level of gutter journalism by publishing Deborah Ramirez’s absurd allegations, which had been rejected even by the leftist New York Times? Likewise, who but the most vicious moonbat could turn to Jimmy Kimmel for a light-hearted laugh after he called for Kavanaugh’s public castration?

This is what passes for comedy now:

“I think there’s a compromise here. Hear me out on this. So, Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court, okay. In return, we get to cut that pesky penis of his off — in front of everybody!”

Watch in horror and disgust at what moonbats have done to American culture:

No one has presented a credible reason not to regard Brett Kavanaugh as an honorable man, at least as conservative in his sexual behavior as he is in his politics. As for Kimmel,

A clip from the 1990s TV series, “The Man Show,” featuring Jimmy Kimmel encouraging women on the street to feel around in his pants in order to guess what was hidden within them, made the rounds online…

He does this with several women, one of whom gives her age as 18, telling one to use two hands and suggesting that another use her mouth.

That’s how he has behaved on camera. I don’t want to know about behind the scenes. Yet it is the straitlaced Brett Kavanaugh we are supposed to regard as a degenerate who indulges in outlandish sexual improprieties.

The women’s magazine Glamour describes Kimmel as a “moral compass” for America. That should tell you all you need to know about the sincerity of feminism. CNN calls the creep “America’s conscience.”

Is there is a point at which the public will say, I can’t watch this guy anymore, he is just too vile? If Jimmy Kimmel hasn’t reached it, the answer must be no.

How the Government Outsourced Socialism: Outsourcing Oppression

In Part 1 of “How the Government Outsourced Socialism,” Captain Capitalism explained how Big Government learned that it is more efficient not to confiscate the means of production, but rather to let more competent private citizens run things, then step in like the Mafia and seize a massive cut of the profits. Now Part 2 addresses the insidious outsourcing of oppression accomplished by using education to establish moonbattery as our national religion through relentless indoctrination.

The indoctrination consists mainly of establishing a narrative of oppressors and oppressed. Forms it can take include class envy, whereby the bad choices of some are blamed on those who made better choices; feminism, whereby women are absolved of responsibility because everything that goes wrong is the fault of men; environmentalism, where easy moral credit can be acquired by siding with the imperiled earth against its oppressors; and discrimination, whereby Cultural Marxism produces an ever-expanding array of “marginalized” groups demanding special privileges as a reward for claiming to be put-upon.

A common thread is that the belligerent victims are oppressed because of an inborn trait, absolving them of responsibility. Another is that there must be a scapegoat: regular white guys. A third is that more Big Government is needed to right the wildly exaggerated or fictional wrongs.

Now that whole generations have been indoctrinated in this malarkey by the education establishment, Big Government can step back and let us oppress ourselves. Most every major institution has been coopted by this leftist ideology, including corporate America:

Today’s education system is NOT about educating children and preparing them for the real world (if that was the case we would have eliminated colleges decades ago, and replaced it with FREE self-study and certification on the internet). It is to brainwash students into an approved national socialist religion (with a close-secondary purpose of enriching the teacher/academic/social worker class). And not only is it to brainwash them into this religion, it is to make sure it is the only thing that gives them purpose, agency, and value in life. Once you have successfully installed this political religion/cult in two, even three generations, you now have a loyal, fervent, even psychotic “rewards club” of sorts that you can market and sell to. And corporations market to this group of people via “Virtue Signaling.”

When you are selling to moonbats, moonbattery can make business sense. Consider Nike choosing Colin Kaepernick — known far more for insulting his country than for his past football skills — as its public face. The people running Nike are contemptible in the extreme, but they are not such idiots as to think this zillionaire mediocrity is oppressed. They picked Kaepernick…

…because TRILLIONS of dollars over the years has been spent brainwashing younger people to believe THEY are oppressed. Thus, if you endorse a spoiled loser who thinks he’s oppressed, you get the millions of other spoiled losers [who] think they’re oppressed to buy your shoes.

Another example is Starbucks banning straws. The suits aren’t such dopes as to think this will have any significant effect on the environment. However, fools will be more likely to buy their coffee not despite the inconvenience but because of it, since they believe it makes them good persons.

If only the price we pay for this idiocy were limited to going without straws. Careers are destroyed for the sake of virtue signaling. Brendan Eich comes to mind; he was canned as Mozilla CEO after Obama’s weaponized IRS leaked that he had privately donated money to a group struggling to preserve the sanctity of marriage. So does Alex Jones, whom Big Tech companies colluded to silence. Another example is dating author Roosh V (Daryush Valizadeh), who had nine of his books banned by Amazon (then Barnes & Noble and Kobo piled on).

The big social media companies are near monopolies; they have to be or they would not be effective platforms. We couldn’t hear each other if we tweeted on dozens of different versions of Twitter. This makes them the public square.

[B]ecause of the nature of internet technology, a handful of monopolies are perched in the perfect sniper position to censor, stop, edit, or simply destroy any ideas, thoughts, opinions, or speech that comes out of this bottleneck.

These companies are thoroughly saturated with leftist ideology. Those who don’t conform to it are driven out, like James Damore.

Ours is a soft tyranny. The authorities don’t have to line up malcontents in front of firing squads. The tyranny invariably associated with socialism has been outsourced.

Moonbats Harass Ted Cruz in DC Restaurant

As Kirstjen Nielsen and Sarah Sanders have learned, it is not always possible for prominent Republicans to dine out in a country infested with radicalized Democrats. Now Senator Ted Cruz knows it too:

Cruz was chased out of a DC restaurant by protesters on Monday night, according to video posted on Twitter.…

One video shows a protester confronting Sen. Cruz and his wife as they entered the restaurant. Sen. Cruz tells the woman “God bless you” before attempting to take a seat at a table.

After the protesters surround the table, Sen. Cruz tells Mrs. Cruz, “Let’s go ahead and go” and puts on his jacket to leave.

As Warner Wolf would say, let’s go to the videotape:

“Survivors” are any women who make #MeToo allegations, regardless of whether the allegations are even remotely credible.

Maxine Waters, who commanded her fellow liberals to publicly harass Republicans, has made her influence felt.

Between this sort of behavior and the contrived slime allegations being used to stall Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Democrats must be driving the last decent people out of their party.

If this is how they behave when they are out of power in Washington, imagine the abuse regular Americans and their representatives will be subjected to when these vermin get the whip hand.

Life-Size Nelson Mandela Idol Unveiled at United Nations

Progressives have a new idol to worship, conveniently situated in the world’s premier cathedral of moonbattery. The bronze likeness of leftist terrorist Nelson Mandela stands ready to receive adoration. It was unveiled Monday by his handpicked successor Cyril Ramaphosa, whose Presidency crows that it is the only life-sized statue at the United Nations.

“The statue is modeled after the day Nelson Mandela delivered his first speech to the United Nations Special Committee on Apartheid on June 22 1990. He urged the United Nations to maintain sanctions against South Africa until apartheid was abolished‚” it said.

Sanctions were key to replacing a wealthy First World country with the rapidly deteriorating hellhole that is South Africa today.

[T]he statue … is fitted with former president Nelson Mandela’s prison shoes that he wore during his days as a political prisoner on Robben Island.

No tears please. Mandela stayed in prison voluntarily. All he had to do to walk free was renounce terrorism.

Another recent story indicates what the international liberal elite glorifies when it celebrates what Mandela did to South Africa:

The 2018 Global Peace Index shows that SA is the most dangerous and most violent country on earth.

According to the Institute for Economics and Peace, post-Apartheid South Africa leads the world in violent crime and murder. Nice work, Saint Nelson!

His votaries at the UN plan to do something similar for the rest of the Western world.

Profiles in Moonbattery: Karl Marx

People calling themselves “liberals” work relentlessly to corrode and destroy every pillar of society, including the family, Christianity, property rights, individual liberty, and as the disgraceful farce they have made of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation attests, our democratic republican form of government. To learn why, consider the declaration by Karl Marx that the totalitarian dystopia progressives long to impose can “be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” That is the purpose of the endless war on every aspect of Western Civilization.

Limiting Visas and Green Cards to Welfare Recipients

As the news piles moonbattery atop moonbattery, a little countermoonbattery makes for a refreshing change. A proposed rule change would make it harder for foreigners to obtain visas and green cards if they have been sponging off welfare:

The proposal, which can become a rule after a public comment period, rewrites a 1999 rule that limited green cards from immigrants who were dependent on cash benefits, but did not take into consideration healthcare or other non-monetary benefits. …

“The [disqualifying] benefits generally represent the largest federal programs for low-income people by total expenditure that address basic living needs such as income, housing, food, and medical care,” a spokeswoman for DHS said in a written briefing.

Given our effectively open borders and the Third World’s infinite supply of neediness, it should be obvious to a small child that welfare must be limited lest we collapse into bankruptcy and become Third World ourselves. This proposal won’t stop foreigners from being rewarded by the welfare state for coming here to drop anchor babies, but at least it is a small step the direction of sanity.

PETA Killjoys Target Balloons

Nothing could be more festive and fun than balloons. So of course dour progressives want to take them away:

Vegan advocacy nonprofit People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is demanding that the University of Nebraska at Lincoln part ways with its longstanding tradition of releasing party balloons at university football games. …

The school has released thousands of balloons after its first touchdown at home football games, for the past 50 years.

PETA shrieks that animals could make themselves sick by eating the balloons and could get tangled up in the string. Not even biodegradable balloons and strings are good enough for PETA.

Where militant moonbats are concerned, if something is celebrated as a tradition, that is probably reason enough to ban it.

Incendiary News Calls for Assassination and Insurrection

Far Left Watch specializes in lifting rocks to expose the repugnant creepy-crawlies wriggling repulsively beneath them. These creepy-crawlies include the moonbats at Incendiary News, which recently posted a call for the murder of ICE agents and federal officials, and the overthrow of the US government. After accusing Border Patrol agents of atrocities on a par with John Kerry’s smearing of US troops in the Vietnam War, the author howls,

This author only hopes that this chapter in American history will also include the moment when revolutionaries rose up with the masses and slaughtered the fascistic Border Patrol dogs and their bosses, slaying them with revolutionary fire and justice.

Presumably their “bosses” would include Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and President Trump.

The entirety of the Customs and Border Protection, their Border Patrol agents, and ICE, like its parent and grandparent, the U.S. Government and American settler-colonialism imperialism, must be destroyed from without, not within.

That is, by revolutionary rather than democratic means. In case that wasn’t clear:

As the Red Guards and their supporters have said in the recent past, the time for activism is over. Now is the time for war. Now is the time to mobilize the masses, particularly the immigrant masses from Central America and Mexico, to exact revolutionary vengeance and seize power.

Incendiary News is run by the Antifa outfit Red Guards Austin.

Calling for the overthrow of the US government is a federal crime, but coming from the left, rhetoric like this wouldn’t so much as get these maniacs suspended from Twitter. Now if they were conservatives…

Over $1 Million Wasted on Social Justice Math and Science

In any realm controlled by government, all other priorities will be subordinated to propping up the government’s ideology. Our government’s current ideology, regardless of who wins elections, is moonbattery. That is why the National Science Foundation has spent over $1 million of our money training 24 social justice math and science teachers in Philadelphia:

The project, which began this summer, is recruiting 24 Drexel students earning a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field, which they will train to teach in school districts in Philadelphia. …

The stated goal of the study is to “promote social justice teaching.” …

The project has received $1,009,762 from taxpayers so far. Research will continue through May 2023.

For that kind of money, you get more than 2 + 2 = white men are racist, sexist, and bad:

The study also involves a mentorship program for the teaching candidates and learning mindfulness meditation so the teachers can develop “emotional intelligence.”

However, the main purpose is to produce math and science teachers who are “steeped in the context of social justice.”

Why bother pretending to learn math? Students could just stay home and watch the news. Seeing a fine man like Brett Kavanaugh torn down with increasingly improbable unsubstantiated allegations for the crime of being male, due process and the presumption of innocence having been discarded, provides an excellent lesson in the difference between justice and social justice.

Social Credit System Arrives in China

The totalitarianism of tomorrow is here today in communist China, where the Social Credit System has been partially implemented. After it is fully operational in 2020, every individual and business will be assigned a score. Information to determine the score will come in part from the 200 million CCTV cameras and facial recognition technology that help to make China an Orwellian dystopia.

From Science Alert:

According to China’s Communist Party, the system will “allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step”.

The trustworthy are those who pay their bills on time, don’t jaywalk, properly sort their garbage for recycling, and of course, refrain from thought crime.

In what’s being described as a “digital dictatorship”, their score takes a hit for each infraction, meaning they incur things like financial penalties and even travel restrictions.

That’s what happened to investigative journalist Liu Hu, who says the social credit system destroyed his career after he was blacklisted for making accusations of government corruption.

If you doubt this could happen here, consider the willingness of Google both to help China censor the Internet and to influence who wins elections.

Speaking of Google,

In a letter to senators, a top Google official said the company allows app developers to scan Gmail accounts, even though Google itself stopped the practice for the purpose of ad targeting last year. The company also disclosed that app developers generally are free to share the data with others, as long as Google determines that their privacy policies adequately disclose potential uses. …

Using software tools provided by Gmail and other email services, outside app developers can access information about what products people buy, where they travel and which friends and colleagues they interact with the most. In some cases, employees at these app companies have read people’s actual emails in order to improve their software algorithms.

Given the willingness of Big Tech giants to collude on behalf of its ideology, we might have an unofficial Social Credit System already. Maybe James Woods was suspended from Twitter not for an anodyne tweet but because his score fell below a certain threshold due to his incorrect attitude.

Like China’s communist government, Facebook also rates people’s trustworthiness, as part of the fake fight against fake news. Also from Facebook:

After calling off the launch of a smart display device earlier this year, Facebook is reportedly planning to announce it [this] week. …

The main feature will be video chat, and Facebook will use facial recognition to tag users and follow them around the room.

It brings to mind those 200 million CCTV cameras in China.

Liberal Students: Obama Does Not Deserve Credit for Post-Obama Recovery

As soon as Obama’s hyper-regulatory boot was lifted from the neck of the economy, its long-repressed energy exploded into the boom we see today. Hilariously, Obama attempted to take credit for the post-Obama recovery. But Campus Reform finds that not even college students — well accustomed to swallowing large boluses of liberal B.S. — are buying it. They give the credit to Trump even if they don’t like him:

Maybe there’s hope yet. But then, students are taught that policies that benefit us all by improving the economy are bad, because greed. That’s why the Reagan Era was bad; the 1980s were the Decade of Greed.

Why James Woods Was Suspended from Twitter

Due to his sharp wit, blacklisted former actor James Woods is among the most popular countermoonbats on Twitter, with over 1,723,000 followers. That’s why Twitter has suspended him:

Woods was suspended from posting to Twitter over a two-month-old satirical meme which very clearly parodies a Democratic advertisement campaign. While the actor’s tweets are still visible, he is unable to post new content.

Have a look at the harmless tweet, and judge for yourself how absurd it is for Twitter to suspend him for posting “text and imagery that has the potential to be misleading in a way that could impact an election”:

Earlier this month, Woods responded to the coordinated deplatforming of Alex Jones with the remark, “This is the beginning of real fascism. Trust me.” Anyone who didn’t trust him then, trusts him now.

Syrian Refugee Propaganda Stunt Goes Awry

Remember the story of Syrian refugee Ibrahim Ali, who murdered and possibly raped a 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian girl named Marissa Shen? The media took this opportunity to propagandize on behalf of the Syrian hijrah. Mohammed Alsaleh, a sort of Al Sharpton for Muslim colonists in Canada, leapt into action, feeding P.C. talking points to journalists so that they could in turn feed them to the public.

But the Cultural Marxist multicultural mosaic broke down when it came to getting the Chinese community to swallow this crapola. When a Syrian-led vigil was staged for Islamic propaganda purposes, the Chinese showed up instead — with consequences that the media found “unexpected.”

Greeting journalists Saturday en route to Lithuania, Francis was given a book about the former pope by Polish photographer Grzegorz Galazka. Receiving the large book with a beaming John Paul on the cover, Francis quipped: “(Pope John Paul II) was a saint, I am the devil.”
