There’s nothing like encouraging the immigration of millions of poor Central American people that already think money grows on trees in America, and then promising them citizenship and free liberal handouts all in exchange for the low fee of: their democratic vote.
The worst part is that demlibs aren’t even being shy about this tactic. They’re being quite obvious that they want to fill the nation with democratic voters and since they can’t seem to get enough from the people already living in the US – you know, Americans – they instead seek to import new democrats from abroad to dilute the Republican share of votes in the country.
The worst part about it all is that they fly this under the flag of whatever sympathy that has been strangely drummed up for the dregs of Central and South American society over the past several years. WHY anyone thinks it’s a good idea to bring in the poorest people from some of the poorest nations in the world into the United States is mind boggling (other than to buy their votes of course).
Most of us know him as “Finn” in the three films of the latest Star Wars trilogy. Some may also recognize him from his work in “Pacific Rim: Uprising”.
What we should ALL see him as at this point however is…
…one ungrateful complaining bitch.
Boyega was lucky enough to get a job most people would DREAM of, which is to be cast in a visible role in one of history’s most timeless and successful movie franchises – Star Wars.
Disney effectively gave this man a career along with ample camera time in all three of the latest trilogy’s films, however for some strange reason Boyega feels that this not only wasn’t enough, but that he’s somehow been slighted. Wt….F?????
As already discussed in the original Idiot Assed Columnists post, whoever these people are writing articles lately for some of the Jalopnik, Gizmodo, Kotaku, and Deadspin family of blogs, writers they are not. Idiots…they are.
It wouldn’t be such a big deal if they weren’t so damn annoying with their sheer and utter idiocy, but indeed, their lack of intelligence and understanding about the things of which they write knows no bounds whilst exceeding all.
Jason Torchinsky recently managed to raise the stupidity bar with his useless take on GM designers and their concept art when he so willingly showed the entire world that he likes to write about trucks but actually knows nothing about them…
After seeing the latest concept art for the GMC Sierra 3500 HD Denali he just couldn’t help but make an ass of himself.
“Just take a moment and really look at that thing. Holy shit. What…what happened to you, designer? The world is scary sometimes, sure, but not that scary. I promise, there’s still good in the world! You don’t have to hole up in a slit-windowed steel parapet with a battering ram up front.”
“Seriously, is that thing made for humans? How the fuck would you see out of that thing? How would you drive this thing anywhere other than a vast, empty highway?”
Well Jason, do you ask tractor trailer drivers how THEY see the road, especially given that they are much higher off the ground and have longer hoods in a lot of cases? Idiot.
“It’s got barely any ground clearance in the front, so I’m not thinking it’d be good for off-roading, even if you could find a gap between two trees wide enough to fit it.”
Absolute idiot. No one in the history of trucks would ever think this thing is for off road usage, it’s obviously for towing. How can this guy possibly know this little about trucks?
“And look how high the bed sides are—how the hell would you load shit in there? If you park it, do you have to pay property tax? Is the view out the windshield anything other than sky and hood? Does it just give up on having a lane-departure warning and just have a county-departure warning?”
Idiot again. IT’S FOR TOWING. That means it needs to be big, and since it’s for towing most likely with a fifth wheel hitch, that means you’re probably not putting things in the bed anyway (where the hitch is) but rather TOWING a trailer with things in it. Idiot.
“Does it just scream constantly? Is the hood so high because the pistons have a stroke measured by the foot? Do you need a ladder to change the air cleaner?”
Again, just an all around idiot that doesn’t understand trucks because he’s grown up in Toyota Priuses his entire life and thinks these dimwitted sarcastic questions are funny when in reality it sadly shows what a complete idiot assed columnist this guy is.
Here is what the current Sierra 3500 HD Denali looks like when it’s doing what it is designed to do, TOW heavy things. Jason Torchinsky, stick to writing about things where you might actually know what you’re talking about – most likely Barbie dolls and My Little Ponies, bronie.
Something happened in recent years as the internet and technology created the ability for anyone willing to talk to have an online voice (such as this very post). The barrier to entry for becoming a journalist/columnist dropped to nearly zero as the ability to host a blog or submit writing to an online media site became so easy that all one really needed was to be able to somewhat coherently type their thoughts, regardless of how ridiculous they may be.
What this means is that the internet and online media sites these days are drowning in the chaos of the opinions of absolute idiots – usually far left leaning liberals, but not always. For whatever reason, it seems that the people who want to complain the most about something end up being liberals as they bitch, piss, and moan about everything under the sun. When there is nothing to complain about, they will find something to condescendingly form opinions on without fully understanding the reality of how said concept actually works, and then go online and post their ignorant thoughts revealing just how idiotic they are and the depths to which their misunderstandings about life reach.
Why do the loudest and most heard voices belong to this unintelligent subset of the population? Perhaps most people that actually understand life are too busy working real full time jobs and paying taxes to waste their time with such meaningless and pointless endeavors as stupidly complaining online about the randomest shit, but certainly the liberal component of America is not. The best part is that they very smugly strut around thinking just how smart they are and how dumb everyone else is because others don’t understand things like liberals do… it’s quite a phenomenon to witness.
Let’s take a look at this Jalopnik article by columnist Bradley Brownell as an example…
Well I guess we can start by saying “no SHIT” police chases are indeed dangerous and yes, it would be nice if we had less of them, but what is assininely strange about the stance Brownell takes on this is that he seems to be alluding to the police being in the wrong for chasing someone who has broken the law….what??? It seems like this guy literally thinks anyone that runs from the cops should be let go and that in order to reduce the number of chases it should be on the police not to pursue criminals, rather than on the criminals not to break the law and not run from law enforcement…
So the story is that the guy in the Smart car was accosted by police in a Walmart parking lot for yelling or some other conduct however he:
“…refused to talk to police, walked over to his Smart and drove away. Police followed the Smart out of the parking lot where they tried to pull him over…”
A chase ensued after the suspect apparently ran “several stop lights…” which went on for over ten minutes down the interstate highway until eventually police were able to get the car stopped and apprehend the suspect.
First…dude evading the police itself is a crime and grounds for arrest without considering any other aspect of what happened here. When the police want to pull you over, you pretty much have to pull over – regardless of whatever grounds they may or may not have to do so. The point is that deciding whether to stop for the police or not is NOT the way to handle whether you think they have legitimate grounds to question you or not – which you honestly can’t know until you talk to them. There could be a brake light out or ten thousand other things which they have the right to delay you over that you may be unaware of.
Brownell apparently doesn’t understand this little fact of life, no doubt because he’s a liberal dumb ass who spends his time sitting around complaining at everything his small mind doesn’t comprehend – much like a five year old yelling “not fair!”.
He then goes on to quote certain stats around how deadly police chases are and various other things to supposedly support his forever flawed and indefensible point of view that if criminals run, they should just be let go. What he doesn’t quote are the rules that various law enforcement agencies and departments have put into place to mitigate high speed chase deaths, such as following at a distance and utilizing air support as the primary means of tracking until a method of halting the suspect’s vehicle can be put into place.
Brownell even goes so far as to say about those suspects who end up dying in the chase:
“Those who had committed a crime or were suspected of committing a crime, were precluded from their right to a fair trial, and their lives ended prematurely.”
This is likely the most retarded thing he’s said the whole time because it was the SUSPECTS THEMSELVES that chose to run and therefore they themselves declined their right to trial in the event that running would result in their deaths. What are the cops supposed to do, nicely talk them off the ledge? Mr Brownell… if a suspect runs, no one twisted his arm to do so, he of his own free will decided to risk his and others’ lives, including the police officers’ – who Brownell doesn’t seem to care anything about.
“There was nothing indicating that the man in the Smart was a threat or a danger to anyone. Without interference from these overzealous officers, it’s entirely possible the Smart driver would have gone on the rest of the day without committing any traffic infractions. Spike strips and a pit-maneuver for allegedly running a red light? Give me a break.”
WOW this guy is a complete idiot of a columnist. A suspect by default shows that he’s a threat and a danger when he refuses to halt for the police and instigates a high speed chase! While “…it’s entirely possible the Smart driver would have gone on the rest of the day without committing any traffic infractions…” none of that matters because he already committed an arrestable offense by fleeing from the police! Not to mention the question of what would make anyone think the driver is going to abide by the rules for the rest of the day after already flagrantly breaking them…? Dude makes zero sense.
Be careful with sites like Jalopnik because the level of credibility and intelligence that some of their columnists are exhibiting threatens to dumb down all who read their nonsense. The amazing part is that he continues to try (key word is “try” here) show that he’s right as he battles with commentors who have actual brains. It’s entertaining to say the least…
It’s a rare occasion indeed that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez opens her mouth and doesn’t look like a complete idiot. When AOC speaks… you can pretty much be guaranteed that she will make a complete and utter fool out of herself – and the best part is that she doesn’t even seem to realize it most of the time…
What was the latest of her always so vocal flubs?
An ill-advised tweet celebrating the plunge in oil futures prices which went into never-before-seen negative territory. This means that the contracts to purchase and take possession of oil fell below zero to the effect that in order to “sell” the oil, you’d effectively have to PAY someone to purchase it ($39.44 per barrel!) .
It’s unclear what she loves to see… is it the hundreds of thousands dying at the hands of COVID-19, the devastation this is causing to the world economy, or her credibility evaporating into thin air as people read this wreckless example of sheer and utter stupidity (what little credibility she had left that is, if there ever was any to begin with)? It’s difficult to tell, but one thing is for sure, AOC just red lined and topped out on the retardometer – that thing is pegged!
The market conditions that created this financial anomaly are the result of the unprecedented decimation of the world economy due to COVID-19 combined with the growing chasm between oil’s supply and its demand as well as the costs associated with storing the surplus of barrels until they can later be consumed.
There are a few things causing the supply/demand relationship to become so out-of-whack. Obviously, COVID-19 and the resulting social distancing and quarantining measures are causing the demand for oil to drop off of a cliff with so many fewer airplanes flying and vehicles moving. This, combined with the inability of oil producing nations to effectively cut back production enough – or the unwillingness to do so due to the need for the profits of barrel sales – is causing the storage capacity to be nearly fully reached as the world simply isn’t prepared to house this many unused barrels because… well it usually just doesn’t need to.
As demand continues to crawl due to government induced lock-downs across the globe, and warehouses continue to fill up as oil dependent economies continue to pump and sell out of sheer necessity during tough economic times… the price of oil futures contracts fell through the floor.
AOC for some reason thought that these horrible times where people are losing their loved ones to illness and their jobs due to the poor economic conditions – especially those in the oil business – was for some reason the proper point to celebrate as in her mind she figured this meant she was closer to her “green new deal” agenda (which btw is the worst economic plan in the history of mankind to the point where it’s sheer fiction not a “plan”).
AOC… stop being the dumbest bitch alive please. Every single day that you are in office it’s a disgrace to the American political system and you embarrass the absolute fuck out of yourself as you betray your sheer and utter ignorance with regards to anything related to the government, anything to do with the economy, or outright anything at all on this earth.
Just when it seemed that the dumb-shittery of the modern ‘politically correct’ police could get no worse, Land O Lakes has recently begun removing the Native American girl from its labels as they “…recognized we need packaging that reflects the foundation and heart of our company culture.” In other words, “we succumbed to idiotic pressure from whatever organizations that so retardedly thought this was a problem when it really hasn’t been for almost the last hundred years (since LOL’s 1921 inception).”
Mother of God, where will this end? The labels had already gone from showing the seated Indian girl to just showing her face, and now she’s removed altogether? What’s more racist: showing a Native American mascot that represents pure quality food or banning the mascot altogether on the grounds of her race? Answer that one…
The best (meaning idiotically worst) part of this are some of the comments made as a result of this cowardly action: North Dakota Rep. Ruth Buffalo told the Grand Forks Herald the image of Mia goes “hand-in-hand with human and sex trafficking of our women and girls.”
The never-ending and increasingly absurd discussion about race in the United States has as of the last ten years or so been painted as a one-sided affair, the evil blue-eyed devil persecuting and attacking anyone of color – who, btw are all innocent victims just trying to stay alive as they are being constantly exploited by “the system”.
This is of course all complete and utter horse shit, but for whatever reason it’s becoming the only politically correct way to reference the racial state of affairs in the cultural melting pot that America has become. If one were to suggest any sort of other conclusion or point to any factual evidence showing that whitey is in fact NOT the single largest threat to this country (as some people claim whilst flagrantly flaunting their absolutely unconscionable levels of sheer ignorance) it opens oneself up for the hoards of uneducated masses to descend upon. It seems that America has tipped the balance (or rather jumped the shark) with respect to the average person in this nation now being somehow literate, but at the same time completely unable to distinguish fact from fiction of those things seen in the news and being easily triggered emotionally to hate traditional conservative American culture – you know, the culture that made this country what it is today?
This is quite a dangerous phenomenon and era that we’ve sunk into in this country, and it doesn’t bode well for civilization at all. This is along the lines of some of the worst tendencies in human nature that have long-term and catastrophic consequences such as the lowest income members of society having the most children, and upper level management in corporations consisting of 95% brown-nosers that never actually knew how to “manage” any damn thing in the first place except for maybe taking a shit on everyone around them in order to rise in the company. Certain long-term and consistent trends such as these threaten to destroy the country from the inside out and erase all that our forefathers have done and fought for in order to provide the very freedom from within which these cancers originate and fester.
First, let’s just get this out there: blacks in America commit the most crimes and violent crimes of any ethnic subset of the population, and if the ratio of blacks to all other races in this country is considered, it’s obvious that blacks are fantastically more likely to be criminals and also vastly more likely to victimize someone of another race than theirs more than any other race is likely to do that to blacks…
Blacks commit the total most crimes in America – out of any race (this is evident after splitting ‘white’ and ‘hispanic’ apart in the FBI’s statistics)
Blacks commit the total most violent crimes in America – out of any race
Blacks commit the total most violent crimes against races other than their own in America – out of any race
By percentage of the population, blacks are by far the single worst offending racial subset when it comes to crime and violent crime
Wow… pretty damning. These are actually just the plain and simple facts of the matter however. The good thing is, facts can’t be swayed to conform to whatever the latest anti-white ideals of political correctness might be, they are fortunately just the undeniable facts.
These facts by the way, make the ridiculous argument that blacks are unfairly targeted for incarceration by “the system” absolutely baseless and FALSE. There are more blacks committing crime in the U.S. than anyone else, so of course there are more black inmates in the U.S. than anyone else – pretty simple isn’t it? The statistical and emotional backward handstands and nonsense that the left will go to however in order to paint this picture any other way is amazingly limitless. The lies, the clouding of the truth, the painting evil of white society, and the endless other extents the media will lower themselves to can’t argue with the basic facts of the matter: blacks in fact, are the single largest threat to this country (if we’re going to be making statements like that then at least they should be correct, no?).
Sure… there are plenty of African Americans that can hold down a job and mildly contribute to society while only slightly showing their inner disdain for all things white, but the question that this begs answering is: “are they worth it?”
It can be reduced to a simple matter of cost, basically what is the expense to society to having the number of “decent” African Americans in this country (whatever that number is) considering and taking into account what all of the other members of this race are doing to drag the rest of us down – including murdering us…?
It’s a good question to ask. African Americans are costing billions of dollars per year in welfare and various other programs of assistance as well as untold sums of money for incarceration and legal fees. This along with the fact that non-blacks also sometimes have to pay with their LIVES just to have SOME decent blacks around…doesn’t make it seem like anyone should want to pay such a high cost for so few productive members of society – not to mention the mother loving complaining we all have to listen to the entire time about blacks being the “victims” of all things…
Let’s also stop here to mention that the prison system being a business doesn’t make any of this OK. It’s true that certain businesses and people make money off of the incarcerated, but that still goes into the bucket of “wasted” to the American tax payer. If there weren’t so many people that NEEDED locking up, the tax payer could pay less for this bs, and the people that are getting rich off of prisons and their commissaries would have less money in their pockets (and no, the total number of people who are making money from the prison system is nowhere near the total number of tax payers that would rather not spend that money). The basic point being, regardless of if SOME people make money off of prisons, OVERALL it’s still a drain on the taxpayer and this country’s economy as a whole.
Now, to address the increasing tendency of mass shootings in America, particularly the white against black portion of those shootings… yes, they do occur… SOMETIMES. Meanwhile, every single DAY there are black on white crimes and murders but those are less in number of victims per incident (though higher in total numbers of victims overall) and therefore they don’t seem to make the cut for today’s sensationalist left-leaning fake news organizations. Regardless however, and this is the most important part – MOST RACE CRIMES PER YEAR ARE STILL BLACKS AGAINST WHITES – by farrrrrrrr.
What this really means is, a few bad apples in the white crowd will each murder several blacks at once – no doubt partially because they’re tired of seeing blacks murder each day while whites are the ones vilified – which points to the known subset of every population that has severe mental issues. Blacks on the other hand murder in much higher total numbers overall AND in a higher total number of INCIDENTS meaning that per the population, the average black man is astronomically more capable of murdering and likely to murder a white person than the other way around.
In other words it’s absolutely SILLY that the majority of these crimes are committed by an African American minority component of the population; blacks only comprise 12.3% of the American racial demographic! But don’t forget…blacks are the victims….yeah….right…
In order to start combating the overall gross bias of the media with regards to this subject, we’ll use this post as a place to store incidences of this phenomenon that is for whatever reason so politically incorrect to even talk about in America. People (all races) are getting murdered by blacks in droves each year, and it’s not going to be lied about any longer.
What a victim of society and the system. Never mind that he’d already threatened to kill police years earlier and eventually ended up doing so after an earlier in the day murder for which he’s also now charged. NONE of the articles on this crime mentioned the fact that he’s black on the day this happened, it wasn’t apparent until his mug shot was released.
Why does the media want to side with black criminals? It makes zero sense… no amount of any alleged racism in this country calls for the media to hide the race of offenders when they’re African American and blast the race of offenders if they’re white. This is all sheer insanity.
White woman gunned down in her driveway by two black men… with George Floyd mayhem completely obscuring any and all other news, apparently two black teens though it was a good idea to shoot a white woman to death while she sat in her car in her driveway…you know, at her house? Apparently you don’t even need to go to the ghetto, blacks are nice enough to bring it to your doorstep.
What on earth did the system do to these two young men that made it seem logical to attempt to steal a car and murder a woman in order to solve their problems? Seriously.
Black man beats elderly white people in nursing home… a black man repeatedly beats senseless elderly white people in a nursing home and posts the videos to the internet. This is one smart and special person here… oh wait, no he’s just a typical black man. Btw, where is THIS in the news, can anyone IMAGINE what would happen had this been a white man beating elderly black folk?
White couple are nearly hacked to death by a black man with a machete… I’m sure by this point it looks like we’re just making shit up here, I mean how could a white couple be attacked with a machete in the United States and it not be ALL OVER the news? If the perpetrator was black of course. You can scour the article but NOWHERE will you find mention of what race anyone was, but low and behold you can bet your bottom dollar that if this were a black couple attacked by a white man we’d have more rioting that the Floyd incident going on.
Elderly white couple shot and killed by a black man while visting their son at the cemetary… How old is too old to get shot and killed by a black man? Apparently 85 and 86 aren’t old enough, as Paul, 86, and Lidia Marino, 85, from Elkton, Maryland were gunned down at a cemetery of all places by… wait for ittt….. a black man. Do you want to guess how many times race was mentioned in the news? Do you want to guess how many times it would be mentioned if the races were reversed?
White women protest for black people’s rights… black person kills them for it? YES, that’s how it works with black people. Oh, and afterwards on some of the cell camera footage you can hear a protester yell “someone call the police!”, the same police these people want to “de-fund”. You absolutely couldn’t even make this stupid shit up.
Five year old white kid shot in the head by black man… Apparently a black man thought that his neighbor’s kid driving a bicycle in his yard warranted a death sentence. This is a black man shooting a white kid in his head but per the article “…CNN & MSNBC haven’t even covered it”. What in the hell is wrong with American media that they want to suppress this? WHY is the American media blasting everything white against black but completely ignoring the vast majority of violent crimes which are black against white? What sense does this make?
Black man murders another black man in shopping mall and also shoots two innocent bystanders… Black-on-black violence would be ok except for when innocent civilians get caught in the mix… Why is it that African Americans tend to let loose indiscriminately in crowded places so often? Everyone involved here is 17-19 years old. How have people at this young age been wronged so much by “the system” that they have already developed into such failures in society – or is it that they’re just born this way? Apparently you can take the African out of Africa but you can’t take the African out of him…
“After the shooting, Brown allegedly admitted to stealing cash from the couple and fleeing the area. The couple were found unresponsive in their vehicle and transported to a local hospital, where they were pronounced dead five minutes apart from each other.”
A white couple – productive members of society with five children – gunned down in cold blood for cash… This is what happens when white people DON’T judge black people by their race’s history of senseless violent actions. They get killed for being so naïve. THIS is what makes people racist against blacks, a complete idiot that can’t just rob someone, he has to kill them too and ruin the rest of his life while taking theirs and forever changing their children’s lives. I wonder if those children will grow up to be liberal BLM activists… or if they will become the victims of some senseless crime committed by an African American… OR, if maybe they will learn the true nature of blacks in America and be smart enough to avoid these situations. Blacks are killing whites every day of every week of every year and no one seems to realize the genocide that’s going on because it’s just such a normal thing in the news – if the news reports it very much at all. THIS SHOULD NOT BE NORMAL.
While it doesn’t quite seem like it’s been over a year since the fake-hate-crime-attack that Jessie Smollett staged on himself (including a noose), we do find ourselves almost thirteen months since America was shown that not only is it no longer Mississippi in 1950 anymore, but that racial hate crimes are in fact so rare these days that Smollett had to manifest one in order to play the race/victim card that he so badly wanted to – calling himself “the gay Tupac” even at one point…
What’s the latest news in this roller coaster of a year? Special prosecutor Dan Webb indicting Smollett on six new counts of disorderly conduct over the falsely reported incident. It’s unknown if federal charges around Smollett’s usage of the mail will end up in the mix or not (remember that fake racist letter he sent to himself?).
African Americans have for so long considered themselves “the victim” and able to blame anything and everything on something to do with race that in the modern age where openly expressed racism or racial attacks are miniscule-ly scant, they simply don’t know what to do with themselves.
The FACT that blacks in America are so obsessed with pretending to be persecuted as part of their life strategy is evident by Smollett’s actions:
Don’t like who The President is? – Stage a racist attack in his name.
Don’t like that The President is a white guy? (you know, like ALL US Presidents prior to Obama???) – Stage a racist attack in his name.
Haven’t been getting enough attention lately? – Stage a racist attack.
Do anything wrong in life? (like staging a racist attack on yourself) – Blame it on racism.
Get caught in the lie that was you staging a racist attack on your own damn self like a complete fool? – Don’t own up to it, instead continue with the farse because you’re black and whatever happened must be because everyone is racist against you, and that regardless of everything else or any facts – you MUST be the victim because you are black.
In fact, it’s impossible to not be a victim as a black man in America right? And also impossible to be the victim as anything other than an African American, as blacks in America have a monopoly on victim-hood…right?
UHMAZIN, as Jesse Lee Peterson would say it, WHO – by the way – manages to be a successful black man WITHOUT needing to be a hurt baby girl 24/7 looking for sympathy. JLP in fact is one of the few voices of reason in America these days when it comes to this topic and he no doubt has the freedom of speech that he exercises since he IS African American and is tired of being grouped in with sissies like Smollett (if a white man talked like JLP he’d have been crucified in a public square by now).
The topic of what is being called The New American Racism has already been expounded upon here so instead we’ll focus on what is potentially the worst and saddest aspect of all of this, and that is the damage this insane incident is inflicting upon the nation and particularly the credibility of any truly persecuted blacks in any future REAL attacks.
Jussie is doing his race ZERO favors by perpetrating this stunt and in fact he’s helping to set his own people back in whatever racial struggle that they have been going through throughout the past several decades in America.
What an idiot, no only do white people hate him now but black people do to! He really should be ashamed of himself, but that takes a little bit of intelligence and understanding of just how retarded one looks to the public before it can be understood – unfortunately Jussie is too busy fantasizing about being the Gay Tupac to have learned anything from this yet.
Perhaps the latest indictment will start to drive home not only just how ridiculous and hurtful to his race (and the country as a whole) this bullshit has been, but also what real effect it is having and will have on his life going forward (jail cell shared with huge guy that always thought Tupac was cute, etc).
The level of absolute and sheer absurdity in our nation when it comes to anything to do with our sitting US President continue to reach new heights as the ignorance of the anti-Trump crowd increases exponentially by the day.
After actor Vince Vaughn was seen talking to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Monday’s LSU/Clemson football game, various members of the media decided they should try to make some sort of story out of it – particularly focusing on (GASP)…the ending hand shake…?
Has American media and the left gotten so ridiculously stupid that they are actually attempting to make a story out of not only something that is really nothing, but once again ANYTHING to do with The Donald which they think should be painted in a negative light? The answer sadly, is yes.
Did Vince Vaughn briefly talk with The President? Yes.
Did he shake his hand at the end? Yes.
Is this a story? NO, YOU IDIOTS.
Is it even possible to fault someone for who they shake hands with? NO, YOU IDIOTS.
If that were the case then every world leader that ever shook hands with someone like Stalin, Arafat, or Al-Assad etc would be demonized. It’s called part of a social interaction and signifies nothing more than courtesy, which yes, is even warranted sometimes with those that one might have hatred or contempt for. Whether Vaughn supports Trump or not is irrelevant and cannot be construed from a simple chat and hand shake. No one even knows what was actually said in the conversation for the love of God! Vaughn could have been telling Trump to go fly a kite for all the media or anyone else knows.
Dem/Libs and their media cohorts that would seek to make an issue of this are absolute and utter morons – period.
Contrary to the simple and immature minds of the anti-Trump component of the US population, not every single thing that President Trump does warrants criticism, or even attention. To try (the key word being “try” here) to smear anyone that shakes Trump’s hand is not only childish and idiotic, but it further reveals just how unintelligent Trump critics can be when they think that over-sensationalizing such a simple event and gesture does ANYTHING to further their cause. In reality, it removes credibility from their camp – which it cannot afford to lose as credibility has been plummeting in the past few years as it were.
Constantly crying about the sitting President and immaturely hating on every single thing associated with or related to him is about the furthest thing from what would make the left’s agenda successful. People are tired of hearing the anti-Trump crowd beating their drum about whatever the latest thing is that they THINK should be something to talk about.
Guys…don’t you have anything better to do? Devoting your entire lives to being negative must really make you some horrible people to be around, and must really kill your success in life… Try being positive for once, and find something else better to do with your time than criticizing your own President constantly – you know, like people did fifteen years or so ago, before the advent of the social media and digital echo chamber phenomenons that resulted in the American public somehow being hyper-critical of and obsessed with the office of The President?
Donald Trump IS YOUR PRESIDENT. Get used to it, and get a life please. You never know, you might actually become a positive person and be successful so you could contribute to the wealth of the nation and actually even be able to pay for some of the social programs that Dem/Libs always talk about wanting to institute while showing no sustainable financing for…or just keep being complaining little hurt bitches – it’s whatever. People stopped taking you seriously years ago – hence Trump getting elected in the first place after the failure that was Obama.
At the end of the day, what are the chances that your hurt little bitch asses are going to make any difference whatsoever in the grand scheme of things as you little punks criticize a billionaire real estate mogul who has been elected President of the United States?
It’s been a crazy couple of years for Nissan’s former CEO Carlos Ghosn, and an even crazier past several days considering that he’s just absconded from Japanese house arrest, crossed international borders, and ended up five thousand miles away in the safety of the non-extradition country of Lebanon.
One could say Ghosn’s troubles began in November of 2018 when he was first arrested on charges of false accounting upon arrival by plane to Tokyo Haneda Airport. Since then it’s become obvious that the conspiracy against him must’ve started much earlier, and also must’ve included many members of Nissan’s inner circle – as well as Japanese prosecutors. Is Ghosn guilty of lining his own pockets with inappropriate expenditures of company funds, or is he being railroaded by a rigged Japanese legal system in cahoots with the Nissan Group zaibatsu?
This story actually begins much earlier, during the early twentieth century when the economy of industrializing Japan had evolved to be controlled by large and powerful family-owned monopolistic organizations called zaibatsu. Some zaibatsu of this period could even trace their roots back to far earlier eras of Japan’s history; this effectively resulted in zaibatsu having untold power and influence by the time of the reign of The Empire of Japan leading up to and during WWII.
Nissan is one of the companies that existed as a zaibatsu starting in 1928, and it stands to reason that in present day, Nissan might continue to operate by certain deep-rooted traditional (and nationalistic) principles advantageous to itself – such as ousting a CEO that had significantly altered the balance of power between a storied historical Japanese conglomerate and the French company of Renault. For better or for worse, Japan remains until this day one of the most racially homogeneous nations in the world, and the Japanese are historically unapologetic regarding their opinions and actions when it comes to foreigners or foreign influence within the land of the rising sun. It’s hardly a far-fetched concept that Nissan would not want a gaijin (外人 – alien/outsider) firm like Renault to embarrassingly be able to assert too much power within the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance.
There are rumors that senior Nissan and government officials had become displeased with the measures Ghosn had taken over the past seventeen years as part of restructuring various aspects of Nissan and its relationships with Renault and Mitsubishi in order to bring it back to profitability. Those measures had widely been received as successful, with Ghosn being awarded Asia Businessman of the Year by Fortune magazine in 2002, and Man of the Year by Fortune Asia in 2003.
Apparently, these accolades and the successful turn around of Nissan’s financial woes weren’t enough to keep Ghosn in favor in the long term – how can the disparity be bridged between the highs of Ghosn’s career and the lows of being arrested and criminally charged? The answer most likely lies somewhere in the complexities of Japanese politics and the desire in Japan for Japanese corporations to be controlled by…the Japanese (not for instance say…the French).
Some would say that the Nissan Group zaibatsu that began in 1928 no longer exists in the same form today, and therefore that the type of nationalistic conspiracy required in order to dismantle Carlos Ghosn’s career and reverse the policies enacted under his direction as CEO of the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance couldn’t in fact happen in modern Japan…
Whilst it is indeed true that the zaibatsu were dismantled in post-WWII era Japan as part of mandatory changes implemented by the United States, it wasn’t long before a similar system emerged which could really be considered as a further evolved model of the zaibatsu – the keiretsu system.
It was under the keiretsu-dominated economy that Japan rose as an economic powerhouse through the 1980’s and it is the keiretsu system that still reigns supreme in Japan today. Keiretsu do have key structural differences and aren’t as similar to oligarch-type organizations as the zaibatsu were, however they do still involve various horizontal and vertical integrations such as zaibatsu utilized and their components work together to ensure the success of the keiretsu overall. In effect, portions of modern day Japan’s economy still operate in a very similar manner as in the zaibatsu era, and this combined with the innate nationalism of such a system along with Japan’s historically nationalistic behaviors overall could most certainly help to explain a conspiracy against Carlos Ghosn and a desire to alter Renault’s position in the alliance.
What has all of this meant for Ghosn? Not only has he been painted by Nissan and the Japanese legal system as a thieving villain – plundering Nissan accounts to fuel his lifestyle – but he’s also been arrested and incarcerated twice, and confined to house arrest with his passports confiscated. He’s effectively been unfairly convicted in the court of public opinion as a result of the efforts of the Japanese, who even pressured French prosecutors to launch an investigation from their side as well.
Is this what the man who effectively rescued Nissan and Renault from their lackluster mid-90’s levels of performance and elevated them to their current successful positions in the industry (with Nissan’s electric Leaf dominating EV market share even over Tesla)? It seems the Japanese aren’t very good at saying “thanks” to someone who devoted seventeen years of his life to fixing one of their oldest zaibatsu/keiretsu corporations…
Facing an obvious crucifixion in an obviously rigged Japanese legal system, Ghosn did the only thing he could do in order to hope to achieve any sort of justice and finally remove himself from being shuttled in and out of Japanese jails and house arrest – he skipped bail and fled. What’s most interesting however is that not only was he able to first get out of the island nation, but that he was able to covertly get all the way to Lebanon, a country which has been kind to him as of late and is more than willing to house a wealthy man of Arab descent (his grandfather was born in Lebanon). Extradition is currently not even a remote possibility, and Ghosn could spend no doubt the rest of his life there if he so chooses, but could also wait out the current witch hunt until a fair trial could perhaps be held in a safe and international (and impartial) location.
What’s next in store for Ghosn? Will he forever remain in Lebanon in order to avoid unfair persecution at the betraying hands of his former team at Nissan, spending the rest of his life on the lam…or will he eventually get his day in court – one that can promise due process and a fair shake? Like the rest of us, all Ghosn can do for now is… wait…
