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.
As the world continues to attempt survival under varying forms of social distancing and lock-down measures, the question arises as to just how we got to this point…
How did a virus bring the global economy to its knees while threatening death in all ages of our population and to a toll not seen by a disease in recent history?
Where does the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 come from? Why is it so deadly? How are we going to survive COVID-19 and pandemics like these in the future?
One critical piece of information that could vastly assist in answering some of those questions is the precise origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus as this might give us a better understanding of how to prevent or at least react to these issues in the future (and perhaps help us to better handle the current pandemic).
The obvious initial thought is that “China” is the source of the virus considering that the initially reported cases were there, and while the answer of “China” is undisputedly correct and well agreed upon (aside from the actual mechanism of inception), we need to know a little more than that.
What is the exact biological source? What is the exact geographical source? How does the virus cross species and mutate? The answers to these, along with a host of other questions might help us to better understand how these things happen in our world as they threaten to destroy it.
A probably more important question however is one that’s not politically correct to ask in this day and age considering that Trump catches hell for even calling COVID-19 a “Chinese disease” – which it no doubt IS (but more importantly if the disease had originated in the U.S., the world would be calling it the “American disease”) – and that question is did the SARS-CoV-2 virus escape from a Chinese virus research center?
The mystery around where this virus began came from early on in the crises when it became evident that some of the first patients had not ever been to the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan, China. This was perplexing as the initial story that China was selling was that the epicenter of the outbreak was specifically that market – suggesting some sort of cross-species transmission due to the different types of animals being sold there (not just seafood), the unsanitary conditions, or both.
This seemed plausible enough, since we know how dirty some of these open air markets in Asia can be, however what didn’t make sense was that the Chinese eventually realized that their best early estimate at a patient zero (the first human suspected to have had the virus) was someone showing COVID-19 symptoms as early as December 01, who’d had zero contact with the seafood market…
“The researchers, seven of whom work at Wuhan’s Jinyintan hospital…revealed on Friday in The Lancet medical journal that symptoms of the new disease were first reported on December 1…”
“…the first patient had no exposure to the Huanan seafood market…”
Later research discounted the initially suspected patient zero and suggested an even earlier start with therefore an even higher chance that the source was in fact NOT the seafood market with a case identified to have existed in Hubei as early as November 17th. This corresponds with internal U.S. government intelligence reports that worryingly showed a contagion loose in the Wuhan area in November.
First, it should be clear that China has obviously not been 100% truthful to the world with regards to just about any aspect of this pandemic. They were not honest about when it started, about how severe it was as it got going there, and certainly not honest about the total numbers of infected or dead. It’s a mathematical impossibility that China has had only the totals they claim considering they are the source of the outbreak and have hundreds of millions of people at a high risk due to proximity and standard of living. The entire thing reeks of a typical communist government cover-up (similar to N. Korea’s laughable reporting of zero cases until just very recently) and why should the cover-up be confined to just the statistics? Perhaps the origin itself is also something they weren’t entirely honest about…
It obviously seems to be too much of a coincidence that the regional epicenter of this pandemic is located in the exact same area as the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where China has been KNOWN to be studying coronaviruses since first publishing research findings in 2005 around the SARS epidemic.
“…represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic…”
“…during interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory…”
Looking back at the history of this research center, the building of WIV’s National Bio-safety Laboratory (the ‘biosafety level 4’ area where coronaviruses are studied) was done in collaboration with the French and partially funded by the United States… It doesn’t take too long to connect the dots and show that organizations in France and the U.S. with the long-term experience and capability to study these viruses safely and without letting them loose on the public quickly enabled China’s WIV lab to handle deadly pathogens without them having the same experience and discipline necessary to contain said ‘virii’.
This would be similar to dressing a monkey in a fine London-made suit. At first he looks handsome, but before long his inability to operate in such clothing becomes evident as the suit is torn and stained due to the monkey acting like…a monkey. Unfortunately, helping to provide the Chinese with the facilities and equipment to study viruses resulted in a mismatch of skill sets to severity, and thousands have now died globally and the world economy has been put into a state of arrest rather than us just having a stained and ripped suit to show for the mistake…
Currently, evidence doesn’t necessarily point to the Chinese having bio-engineered this virus, but more to them having accelerated its evolution as a result of it being under study, and then very stupidly releasing it into the world due to sheer negligence and incompetence.
SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses are known to originate in horseshoe bats living a thousand miles away from Wuhan in Yunnan, China. While scientists seem to agree that there must’ve been some intermediary animal(s) between the bats and humans, it still seems unlikely that the virus would’ve transitioned to humans a clean thousand miles from its original biological source. In fact, we are fairly certain that this didn’t happen and that the only reasonable and obvious alternative is that the virus “escaped” from the research center in Wuhan.
Further evidence pointing to this is that WIV does in fact work with the closest known relative of SARS-CoV-2 – a virus known as RaTG13 – and while the genetic differences between the two would suggest about 50 years of natural evolutionary separation, this in fact doesn’t clear WIV of being the source of the pandemic, but supports it. The laboratory study of viruses inherently causes mutations as they are cultured in petri dishes with cells having the human ACE2 receptor. This would over time create natural mutations but would do so at an unnatural rate, which would condense the creation of 50 years of natural evolutionary differences down to a much smaller span of time.
Nikolai Petrovsky, from the College of Medicine and Public Health at Flinders University in South Australia states:
“The result of these experiments is a virus that is highly virulent in humans but is sufficiently different that it no longer resembles the original bat virus… because the mutations are acquired randomly by selection, there is no signature of a human gene jockey, but this is clearly a virus still created by human intervention.”
Now for the real kicker… China not only halted exports of Personal Protective Equipment as they realized they would need what they were producing in order to handle the unfolding epidemic in their country (the numbers and severity of which they were vastly understating to the global community) BUT they ALSO began IMPORTING said material at the same time, effectively buying up as much PPE as they could as fast as possible before the world found out the true impact of COVID-19.
Let’s think about that a little further… as China was hitting the “oh shit” button while COVID-19 spread rapidly in their country, they not only halted their exports of PPE to ensure they had sufficient supplies for their medical workers and citizens, but they simultaneously started buying up the world stock as they intentionally lied about how deadly COVID-19 was so that unsuspecting countries would sell the PPE to China, each one completely unaware that they would soon need every single mask and set of gloves available themselves.
China was the source of this virus, then used it against the world to the tune of more than likely hundreds of thousands of non-Chinese lives by the time this is over. If this behavior at a state level isn’t downright criminal, then what the hell is? These actions are the kind of thing that would trigger criminal charges to be leveled were they committed by individuals instead of a nation…
In conclusion, overwhelming evidence suggests that:
China has unintentionally released the most contagious and deadly influenza virus the world has seen in a hundred years upon its own population and the world to the tune of millions of infected and hundreds of thousands of dead
Through their research inadvertently accelerated the evolution of the virus to new heights of lethality
Through their absolute and utter incompetence let the virus escape and wreak havoc on society and subsequently the world economy
LIED TO THE WORLD ABOUT EVERY SINGLE DETAIL
Reversed their PPE exports
Bought up the world supply of PPE before other countries knew the severity of COVID-19 (you know, because China was lying about the lethality)
Through all of these actions caused the death toll outside of China to be much higher than normal
It’s time to stop with the political correctness and openly demand China admit to their actions and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to demand financial reparations for the casualties, much like the U.S. state of Missouri is suing them for this debacle. China has proven they’re not advanced enough to handle researching diseases like this without killing massive numbers of people, and they’ve proven that when they screw up, they’ll lie to the world and INTENTIONALLY cause even more deaths than necessary. They’re literally killing people with their actions.
Someone please take the monkey out of the suit, and lock his ass up while we’re at it.
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 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.
…two systematically victimized African American males and an African American female finally fought back at the system by attacking a family in order to steal their shit…oh, and they sprayed the white woman in the face with pepper spray real good too…
Louisiana man is suspected of a murder and when police go to his house to question him he opens fire, then “…stood over a dead officer’s body while continuing to shoot him…”
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?
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…
Back in 2014 when the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) – AKA the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) – was gaining world-wide notoriety after several successful military campaigns and several YouTube’d beheadings of foreigners, a strange phenomenon began to increase where women living in various countries fled to the middle east in order to be brides under the rule of the ISIS/ISIL caliphate.
Most of these brides were of middle eastern / near eastern descent and followers of Islam who apparently believed that the ISIS caliphate was going to be a permanent fixture in the region and be a place where they could live with fellow Muslims sharing their beliefs, while having families without the “oppression” of the western capitalist infidel societies that their “home” countries were members of, and were subjecting them to.
One such young woman – Hoda Muthana – left from Alabama in the United States at age twenty and traveled to ISIS-held territory where she then married an ISIS fighter and was his wife until his death in 2015, at which point she married another fighter and had his child. Seems like a stand-up girl. Overall, Muthana had three jihadist husbands during her five-year holy war stint, and when the end was finally near (ISIS territory being compressed down to only a few square miles) she eventually surrendered to U.S. troops in January of 2019.
Back in 2015 however, she appeared to be satisfied indeed with life in the new caliphate as she was quite active on her Twitter account suggesting to others to join her holy war cause and also kill citizens in the U.S. before they left… This is not to even mention what sort of support she must have provided militant extremists while she was living with them and they were you know…killing innocent civilians and allied troops in their never-ending thirst for the endless expansion of their caliphate through the murder of others and the theft of the corresponding resources. This was actually how ISIS became such a threat in the first place. In the spirit of Islam they grew like a cancer in the region by attacking quickly and using the wealth and equipment from gained territory to further fuel more murder and raiding/plundering.
As the ISIS/ISIL caliphate grew, and as they garnered ever more attention with savage and barbaric beheadings of usually abducted foreigners, many people worldwide such as ISIS brides like Hoda showed their true colors and what they really support when only given the slightest chance to do so.
Did Hoda support the freedom and equality that she enjoyed in the United States? Apparently not, and not only did she wish to go live with her true people showing her true colors, she also simultaneously sought the death and destruction of the U.S. and its citizens as well. Why wouldn’t it just be enough to go and live in her middle eastern homeland one might ask? No one can answer that question but Hoda who also should probably tell us why in the absolute HELL she thinks she should be granted entry BACK into the U.S. after the effective “fall of ISIS”. It seems like Hoda only wants the downfall of western civilization whenever it’s convenient for her and when it’s not, she would actually like to go back and live in it – and also “have her own car” as per her latest interviews.
The best part about all of this is the mainstream media being crass enough to fuel a discussion of this ridiculous double-Benedict-Arnold by sympathetically showing pictures of her and her Jihadi-born son as if Americans are supposed to either feel sorry for this woman (who effectively wanted us to all die), or for even a moment at all entertain the possibility of any sort of legal “right” which she claims to have for re-entry as a “citizen” of the United States – a claim which President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have rejected.
First, this woman is technically an enemy of the state, possibly guilty of war crimes herself for even being a part of ISIS – and again, not to mention whatever actual support role she served for them during her tenure, which may have included assisting with the torturing and killing of ISIS’ opponents etc – but at the very least, she most certainly is a traitor, which during a time of war is punishable by death (on the spot).
Then there is the fact that when she was born in New Jersey, her farther was a foreign diplomat from Yemen who was only still in the U.S. due to an extension to his diplomatic stay granted as a result of the civil unrest and conditions at the time in his home country. That’s right, whenever some sort of amnesty or asylum is granted to these sorts of people, it always comes back to bite the U.S. in the ass because they sooner or later use that against us.
First, her family should not have even been in the U.S. when she was born, but they were still here simply out of the kindness of America’s heart. Secondly, her father was still a diplomat at the time, and the children of diplomats born in the U.S. are not granted citizenship by birth. On no planet in no universe does Hoda have ANY claim to U.S. citizenship REGARDLESS of the fact that even if she once did, that would all be null and void due to her absconding to go support an enemy of the U.S. (and of the free world), and directly supporting insurgents engaged in active and deadly combat with U.S. and allied forces.
Lastly… the United States government can do this thing called revoking your citizenship – which it doesn’t have to do in this case since she was never a citizen – but not only does the U.S. have certain legal provisions for doing so (which Hoda has certainly met), but at the end of the day, they can do it at any time for any reason to any person because simply…who in the hell is going to stop them? The U.S. can revoke your citizenship and tie up all legal appeals to that action for the next hundred years and who is going to prevent that while you sit in the sand in Syria? Hoda is this thing called one dumb mother fucker – the same as most or all supporters of Jihad. The only difference here is that she is having the chance to show the world just how abhorrently stupid she is due to the media’s attention. It’s almost comical that the same girl who said to other would-be ISIS brides to “…go on drivebys, and spill all of their blood…” before coming to join her cause in Syria is now saying “…I want to go to school, I want to have a job and I want to have my own car…”
Apparently Hoda only wants the American dream whenever she fails to destroy it, has no ISIS ground left to stand on, and is stuck in a Syrian refugee camp… Thank God a federal judge this November has ruled that Hoda and her son are in fact NOT citizens of the U.S. and that her request for entry into this country stands as denied. Dumb bitch.
The levels of sheer absurdity when it comes to the growing desire to not enforce immigration laws in this country have now reached all-out epic proportions. In New York City it is now a fineable offence – to the tune of $250,000 – to call someone an “illegal alien” (regardless of if they in fact are or not).
Also on the list of new offenses are discriminating based on someone’s English proficiency OR even threatening to call immigration authorities “based on someone’s actual or perceived alienage, [or] citizenship status, [or] national origin”. This means that the person CAN IN FACT BE an illegal alien, but it is still an offense to call them one OR tell them you are calling INS.
Absolutely amazing. So basically, not only do SO many Democrats in this country WANT illegal aliens here in the U.S. (to increase their voter base when those illegals later have citizen children), but now you can’t even call an illegal out for being one OR tell them you are calling INS without risking a $250k fine!? I suppose the work-around is to just not say anything to them and simply call INS and wait for the problem to get fixed, but the fact that American CITIZENS in this country can’t even SAY to an illegal immigrant that they are indeed an illegal immigrant is utterly ridiculous and astonishing, not to mention stupid. Dems are systematically stripping U.S. citizens of their rights and transferring those rights over to anybody in the world that wants to break the law and come to the U.S. illegally. Just what in the HELL is going on in this nation?
A couple of examples cited as violations of the new guidelines are:
A hotel prohibiting its housekeepers from speaking another language because it would “offend” guests.
A store owner telling two people speaking Thai to “speak English” or “go back to your country.”
The first question that comes to mind is regarding the hotel company that is now obliged to pay someone to work for them… but the company can’t require them to speak in the official language of this country while on the clock? Companies can enforce drug policies and firearms restrictions on citizens that clearly violate their rights but OH NO, they absolutely cannot require that their employees speak English. Absolutely astonishing.
The second question I would ask is how friendly do you think English speaking Americans would be treated if they were say…in Iran openly speaking English? Not only would they be told to stfu, they’d be thrown in jail just for being American, yet these latest rules suggest an American here in the U.S. couldn’t even request for an Iranian to speak English. Instead, we must let them continue to speak Farsi while plotting their next bombing and if we insist they speak English so we can know what they’re saying, WE get a $250k fine! Just what in the absolute HELL is going on in the United States of America to where one of our most prominent cities is bending over backwards to persecute American citizens while opening the door to any law breaking border jumper that can somehow make it to our country? If this isn’t an indicator of the downfall of civilization as we know it, I certainly don’t know what is.
It’s increasingly humorous to watch Hillary Rodham Clinton continue to try and hold onto the slim thread of a possibility of maybe taking another shot at the Presidency whilst also pretending that she can represent women in America today or even the rest of the Democrats for that matter.
While I initially gave Hillary some credit for taking the election loss fairly well and honorably back in 2016, that melted away soon after she joined the rest of the entire Democratic party with their petty, dirty, immature, and constant (failing) attacks against our sitting U.S. President Donald Trump. It’s a wonder the dems have had any time to do anything else but look for ways to tear down The Donald considering how much of a relentless effort they’ve put into it (oh wait…they DON’T do anything else but that).
At first it looked like Hillary was just what the slippery slope of American politics wanted for the next U.S. President. What could be better after the first African-American but for the first woman President of America? The problem however was… she lost the election – whether that be by electoral college votes or not – and failed at achieving victory for the dems. This is somewhat of a problem for Hillary Rodham. How could the dems ever choose her to represent them for the 2020 run when her record of victory at this is absolutely nil?
The even larger problem with Hillary Rodham is that she simply doesn’t fit with the agenda of what modern American women want to push in this day and age. As women are publicly standing up for their rights in this nation and refusing to let men continue to run over them, Hillary represents the exact opposite of that spirit when she has repeatedly stayed with Bill over DECADES of infidelity in the form of various affairs and sometimes even worse allegations. Oh, then there was that time he got IMPEACHED in front of the entire world for one certain incident involving Monica Lewinsky. How crazy do things have to get before Hillary is going to leave his ass? The answer is, absolutely no level of Bill being a hound dawg was EVER going to result in Hillary standing up for herself because she’s a slimy politician who would do anything to continue to stand by Bill’s side and rise up politically with him so she could eventually take a run at the Presidency herself. For Hillary to have left Bill at any point during his ascension to becoming – or serving as – the President would’ve been the end of Hillary’s slimy political career.
The best and most humorous parts of all of this are her latest comments claiming that her staying with cheater Bill was the “gutsiest” thing she’d ever done in her personal life. First, this isn’t your personal life – it’s your political career – but regardless….Hillary….honey….letting Bill run all over you repeatedly in front of everyone and doing absolutely nothing about it is NOT CALLED “GUTSY”. You can attempt to re-purpose words in order to inside the imagination of your own mind make you look better to yourself but the rest of us live in reality.
In this thing called reality in 2020, women aren’t buying your bullshit anymore. Modern American women know that you can’t represent them at this point because not only can you not win an election, but you utterly EMBODY the old-school strategy of staying with your man and enduring whatever humiliation that comes along with that regardless of anything else. Hillary….what you’ve done is not “gutsy”, it’s about the exact opposite – it’s “SLIMY”, and it represents the slimy politician that you are, and is the single biggest reason (along with being 71) that there is no possible way for you to represent young modern women in America. You have in fact hurt the cause of American women by contributing to the thought that men can get away with whatever they want – you in fact, are the modern American woman’s worst enemy.
Hillary Rodham Clinton…in the event that you advise the Biden campaign into the dirt and pull a surprise slimy entry into the 2020 race…inside of that crazy mind of yours, what do you really feel your chances are with young American voters?
