Responding to Van Jones’ comments on the President’s “expected” refusal to concede

Van Jones spoke on TED on YouTube on October 26, 2020, a week before the election about President Trump’s anticipated refusal to concede the election if Biden won, which refusal to concede has now actually taken place given the legal issues regarding the rampant alleged election fraud committed by the Democratic Party until after these issues are determined. I entered the following comment responding to Van Jones’ lengthy TED speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZWRhLW7Y8w

1) concession speech – Hillary to Biden “DO NOT CONCEDE!!!!!” Yeah. So it’s okay for Biden to refuse to concede no matter what, but not Trump where there is glaring fraud? What about where there is glaring irregularities in the vote, like in Bush vs. Gore? Sure, concessions are there when there is a clear outcome in the election. But here, it was clear that mail in voting was going to cause problems, and the Democratic controlled cities and states decided that Republican observers would NOT be permitted to observe the counting, even after a court ordered they be admitted. Justification for challenging the vote. Stay tuned for outcome. 2) You said Gore conceded after the Sup. Ct. decided the case – ha ha..well, but he did not conceded until after the court decided the important question of which Florida votes were LEGALLY countable – uh….basically the same issue which will be decided by the Supreme Court in this election – Same thing. 3) All of what happens after the election and concession until January 6th is in the Constitution. The Concession is meaningless. It is the Constitutional function that actually determines the presidency. You have it backwards. Completely. The law is there for a reason. 4) You totally mixed apples and oranges by claiming that bringing a new slate of electors to the electoral college vote is the same as challenging allegedly fraudulent ballots in Court. The former is untenable, the lawsuits are in fact completely necessary when there has been evidence of fraud, as here in at least 5 states, and probably more. The outcomes of those cases will help determine the outcome of the election. That is how the system works. There is nothing wrong with that system. If the claims of fraud are spurious, they will be thrown out of Court. If not, they will be carefully considered. Bush vs. Gore is a good example. 5) As for the Constitutional method for choosing the president when it goes to the House of Representatives, the system designed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, and in place for 245 years, is that it is one state, one vote. And you are right. There are more red states than blue states. America is a patchwork of states across 3,000 miles of amazing land encompassing 50 states. But “blue states” are concentrated on the coasts, and “red states” are concentrated in mostly the center of the nation, where there are far more states. Sour grapes? sounds like it to me. But Van, you called it a “coup”. Of course you did. But you called it a perfectly Constitutional coup. That is a ridiculous statement, as I just pointed out. It is the Constitution. Want to change it? Good luck. You know the process that has been in force for 245 years. Follow it. Go for it. 6. You keep talking about challenging the results by refusing to accept, but if the election is determined after all legal challenges, then it is over. Period. Why are you creating an issue where it does not exist? 7. “Progressive organizations are preparing to warn Americans about the threat to Democracy.” Van. Listen. The biggest threat to Democracy has been the extensive fraud committed by the Democratic Party in this election, the participation of the media in censoring the opposition to essentially shut them up (basically eliminating any reference to the Biden revelations in the weeks before the election, and many other issues), putting in place a system of wholesale mail in voting which contained absolutely none of the checks and balances in assuring one qualified voter, one vote, and then counting the votes in secret (something done in banana republics, like Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Russia) Democracy is threatened by the left. Make no mistake. 8. Finally, stop referring to the president’s legal actions to determine the outcome of the election as a “coup”. The only “coup” here is the one that began over 4 years ago to impeach the President (failed) and ending with the current attempt by the Democratic Party to stuff the ballot boxes with bogus ballots (e.g. hundreds of thousands of fake ballots which only vote for Biden, with no other races selected, backdated ballots, illegal ballots, etc.), and then count them in secret, to destroy Trump ballots (which can never be recounted in a recount if they are destroyed), using computer software to change the outcome, and various other methods which will come to light in the lawsuit to be filed this week and in the coming weeks. Just like there is no concession under these circumstances, there is no “president-elect”, because the races have not been completed yet under existing law.

Democratic Party Drug Mafia – drugging our kids to finance the agenda of the left – a tragic mistake of epic proportions

New York Governor Cuomo in a recent interview stated that New York is ripe to legalize recreational drugs (https://nypost.com/2020/11/05/gov-cuomo-says-2021-is-ripe-for-legalizing-pot-in-new-york/). His focus was almost completely on the financial benefits this would provide to NY coffers through taxation dollars going to the government, sufficient he thought to finance much of the left’s billion dollar programs. His complete attention was to the oodles of tax dollars the government would derive from the sale, purchase and usage of recreational drugs by New York citizens. To this extent, I imagined the Governor sitting at his desk, leaning back in his chair, and dreaming of the billions of tax dollars NY would haul in, rubbing his hands together, and cackling. He was talking about the New York State Government Drug Mafia, taking its “cut” for actually drugging NY citizens, drugging our families. If you are not appalled, you must be a Democrat. It almost sounded like a meeting of the “five families” in The Godfather to split up the drug profits (you remember Barzini said “after all, we are not Communists…,” probably not true in this case of Democrat Governors figuring out how to profit from their citizens’ drug addiction).

There has always been a deep divide politically regarding the effect of drugs on our citizenry, at least for the past 70 years, and probably longer. Those on the left have always been tolerant of drugs, particularly now and in the 60s and 70s (possibly a baby boomer effect), and those on the right bitterly opposed to them, and much of the difference is ideological regarding the effects of certain drugs on people in general, the overwhelming criminal implications of violating laws against use of certain drugs, and the enormous financial implications of the drug “industry”, which should be read as “governmental drug mafia”, essentially akin to organized crime benefitting from the addiction, physical or otherwise, to the effects of drug use, and the downward spiral of most users “needing” to keep buying.

I won’t get into statistics or such arguments. Personal observations and personal aversion to drugs has informed my thinking about the effects on American society, and has affected my conclusions. The stats are there to find.

I was opposed to many of the legalization laws, in particular recreational marijuana (THE gateway drug – those “studies” which are not convinced marijuana is a gateway drug always rely on alcohol and smoking as also “gateway” substances, but the difference is glaring – alcohol and smoking are not illegal, and once someone has used an illegal “drug”, they are far more likely to wander down that rabbit hole to other illegal substances), which have spread like wildfire throughout the US, and the general recent reality that the left has induced a numbness to the effects of drug use in light of the overwhelming support among voters, particularly younger voters. The left is also in love with the notion that since many drugs are no longer illegal, arrests for use or sale have been all but stopped.

Estimates you might find for NY’s taxes on drug sales, including franchise fees and taxes and taxes on sales, range from $300 million to more than $1 billion yearly.

Just think of it. All you need to do is sacrifice your children and their families, give them over to pot, let them freely use it, and/or sell it, and many of NY’s financial problems will be over! It reminds me of the organized crime structure, and of the cops taking bribes, other law enforcement taking bribes to look the other way, and here now, we have the government itself taking its 20% cut of the drug trade. The Great New York State Drug Cartel. That will be the name of New York from now on. Just another cartel, using organized drug sales to enrich the State and fill its coffers. Anyone who has had family swallowed whole by drugs knows the dangers inherent in these policies and should find this repugnant.

It should come as no surprise the Democratic Party will raise money by drugging you and your kids, and profiting from that.

Personally, I find it disgusting in so many ways, it is hard to articulate how deeply disturbing this trend is. Drugs are no less dangerous now than they have been all along, the only thing that changed was the liberal government’s greed and avarice, and willingness to play the Devil, and entice our youth into participating in this deadly game and generate cash. This is no better than the thug on the street corner selling pot or worse. Not one single bit better. Cuomo, Mafia Drug Lord. It fits the Governor perfectly.

Taipei Times Uncensored

I wrote and posted at the Taipei Times for almost 20 years. When I wrote a comment in the Taipei Times criticizing China for lying about the Wuhan Virus, and then lying about lying about the virus, and when I criticized Tedros for being the lapdog of the Chinese Communist Party for his heaping of oodles of praise on China for its “handling” of the virus, and the WHO’s official policies which inevitably suppressed the initial dangers of the virus in order to mollify Communist China for fear it would cut off the WHO’s access to facts on the ground, I was kicked off Facebook, though my post was published on the Taipei Times website without any issue. Facebook has been censoring comments critical of Communist China and/or Tedros and/or the WHO. As a consequence, I am unable to post at the Taipei Times or comment on any of the articles published there. I wrote to the editor to ask that the Taipei Times provide other access to posting, but thus far no changes have been made. After almost 3 months of being banned, I have decided to post my comments on the Taipei Times here under the title “Taipei Times Uncensored” instead of at the Taipei Times website because in order to comment or post there, you must have a Facebook account, and only a Facebook account. This in effect allows Facebook, which has previously had a pro-Communist Party approach, to censor the posting and comments at the Taipei Times, one of the world’s only pro-Taiwan news organizations. That is a tragic turn of events.

In the Taipei Times on June 6th on Page 8, an editorial was published entitled “States Risk Public’s Violent Anger”, written by Nigel Li, a student at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations. The first major mistake in the premise of the article is somehow conflating what is happening in the United States with either the Hong Kong protests, or with action taken by any number of totalitarian states against violent protests. There can be no comparison between the democratic system of government and justice in the United States and those dictatorships, where democracy and justice are unknown. Because the United States has one of the most objective legal systems in the world, and a strong constitution protecting freedom and justice, especially under the First Amendment and the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, there is no need for violence except to wreak havoc or cause chaos, which is the objective of anarchy and revolution, two features of the current socialist/communist wing of the Democratic Party, pushing the Democratic Party run districts so far to the left it has become frightening. Thus every opportunity to cause chaos has been fully supported and in fact instigated by the Democratic Party, including the current riots regarding the death of George Floyd in police custody, which have been taken over by the extreme left.

Anyone familiar with the political climate in the US should by now understand the fear of the Democratic Party that the Wuhan Virus will be mostly resolved in the next few months, that the economy may come roaring back, and that these juggernauts will make it impossible to defeat the incumbent president, Donald Trump. Thus, racial chaos and anarchy is helpful the Democrats believe, to their cause. However, the Democrats are completely tone deaf because they still do not understand the extraordinarily high percentage of Americans who support the protests and yet loathe the riots, and can understand the difference. The calls by the Democrats to “defund the police” is simply another leftist wet dream to leave the state undefended in the face of the anarchy and socialist/communist revolution currently being instigated. Left up to the Democrats, any conservative who doesn’t use the latest leftist approved language should be arrested, but those who loot, steal, sell drugs, commit assault, murder or commit other felonies should not even be arrested, hence “defund the police”. But there are very few in the US who want to go down that road, and the cacophony in the media, which is overwhelmingly in opposition to the President, makes it seem the country is united in opposition to the president and hostile to the police. The left made the same mistake in 2016 and were shocked they lost the election. They are in for another rude awakening.

Secondly, “journalists” (in quotes here because almost all of the liberal press have been reduced to propaganda writers for the Democratic Party, not journalists) should not conflate protests and violence in the United States with those things in totalitarian countries, like Communist China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, and other dictatorships or with the life in Taiwan during the KMT rule, when it inevitably tried to deliver Taiwan into Communist China’s orbit permanently. There is a system of law and justice in the US which has been a model for the developed world for more than 200 years. Protests and even riots against the totalitarian rule of the KMT were justified. If anything, the socialist/communist wing of the Democratic Party is far more like China, the old Soviet Union, Cuba or Venezuela than like the US or Taiwan.

As for racial justice in the United States, the Democratic Party was the party I might remind you of slavery in the United States until Republic Party President Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves with his Emancipation Proclamation and the success of the Civil War in America in the 1860’s. Moreover, the Democratic Party was hardly the party of justice for blacks in the US or for civil rights until the 1960s, and then the Democratic party embarked on a process to buy the votes of minorities in the US through welfare and other programs and to basically establish institutions of government that would spend the next 60 years keeping minorities dependent on welfare and similar programs in order to maintain their voting power. This prevails until today, and we are witnessing yet another step in the process of using race as a justification for anarchy.

When the Democratic Party lost to President Trump in 2016, it was shocked and dismayed, and has spent the past 4 years attempting a coup by a thousand cuts, beginning with a impeachment based on phantom charges of so-called Russian Collusion (failed coup), and then coming up with issue after issue as attempts to justify impeaching the President (all failed). The threshold for impeachment was lowered to ridiculous levels in the US by the desperate Democrats, and their willingness to try anything and everything to unseat the President has possibly damaged the US institution of government permanently.

When impeachment failed, the Democrats decided to use the pandemic as a new justification for criticism of the President and for renewed calls for impeachment, despite it being clear China and the World Health Organization at China’s behest misled the world on the origins of the Wuhan Virus. That failed as well. When the pandemic was turning the corner, cases and deaths dropped to far lower levels, and the economy was on the verge of reopening, the death of George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer engaging in brutal force provided yet another opportunity for the Democratic party to interrupt the recovery by encouraging and supporting weeks of chaos and riots, including murder, violence and looting. The Democratic party, always the party that thrives on chaos, dead bodies and the promise of government money, is now calling for “defunding” the police (whatever the hell that is), and basically reducing the US to a nation without the ability to enforce its law. That is of course the end aim of a party wishing to foment a socialists/communist revolution. In order to do that, the police must be neutered.

On the issue of race in the US, I don’t know what “institutional racism” is. Prominent black leaders (including President Obama) and commentators have for years advised the black communities that single father households and persistent crime do far more to keep blacks from breaking out of ghettos and poverty than racism (“More than half of all black children live in single-parent households, a number that has doubled — doubled — since we were children.”). There is no doubt racism exists, and there is no doubt blacks die at higher rates from gun violence. But the overwhelming number of deaths of blacks by gun violence are not at the hands of white police, or even white shooters, but at the hands of other young black men (over 80%, or more). These statistics are hard to dig out, as the prevailing statistical analysis (to support the Democratic Party narrative of institutional racism) is the number of black victims, not the number of black perpetrators. President Obama over his 8 years at President of the US did nothing to address this “black on black” crime, or the single father home in over 50% of black families, and the effect that has on sons and daughters. The welfare system designed by Democrats, that is paying money to families with a single mother with children and no partner, also encouraged these developments in single parent homes. Obama did speak of this problem a few times between 2008 and 2014, but his administration did nothing to address it. “In 1960, the year before Obama was born, 22 percent of black children lived with single parents. In 1968, the number rose to 31.4 percent. By 2006, the 1960 percentage had more than doubled to 56 percent.” [Politifact fact check]. 

What makes the US different from totalitarian nations like China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, N. Korea, Iran and many others is the US has a well-defined system of law and justice in effect and . The police involved in the George Floyd matter have been arrested and will be charged, and tried. They will be permitted to make a defense and a jury will decide their guilt or innocence when all of the facts are known. This does not take place in dictatorships.

The left at this moment does not wish for there to be a trial. They wish for there to be a lynching, and steps in that direction are censorship (e.g. if anyone questions BLM, they are censored), disbanding the police, controlling the populace to conform to the Democratic party’s ideology, changing history and destroying historical icons (e.g. Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy, Andrew Jackson, and many many others), pulling down statues and monuments, desecrating the US national flag and National Anthem, imposing new language and banning common language (Drew Brees, a celebrated NFL Quarterback spoke about disagreeing with anyone desecrating the flag or the anthem, and he was pounced on by the MSM and the BLM movement, and forced to retract his statement – oddly, his statement is supported by a huge overwhelming majority of Americans). These things are happening now, and have happened before in every instance where socialist/communist revolutions occurred. Those revolutions were accompanied by millions and millions of deaths (in Cambodia over 1.5 million, in Communist China at the hands of Mao between 50-80 million), commonly of professionals, including lawyers, teachers, and others, and murder of capitalism, replaced by state control over every aspect of life. This is what the Democratic Party now seeks, as it is unhappy with a majority of American’s rejecting the Party’s extremist views on most aspects of American life, especially free speech.

The world should be quite worried. If the Democratic party prevails, the US will withdraw as it did under Obama, Taiwan and Israel will be under assault, and Europe will be required to lead the world, and it has demonstrated over and over and over, even today, it does not have the backbone to stand up to Russia, China, Iran, and many other nations determined to resist freedom as a way of life and destroy the West, and lacks the morals or the will or the ability to protect Taiwan or Israel. The world needs the US to be the defender of human rights and freedom, because frankly there is no one else on Earth suited to it or capable of doing it.

When You Can’t Win an Election, Steal It Over Any Number of Dead Bodies…

The Democratic Party understands there is no way to win the election in November, especially not with Biden as the candidate. Four years of impeachment nonsense was intended to create doubt to help the Democratic candidate win. That failed when impeachment turned out to be a lie. Endless investigations turned up nothing. Now it is clear that the Democratic Party was planning its “coup” even before the election by investigating the opposition candidate. That has never happened in the history of the United States. The Party has fallen that far under the leadership of Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi, and their henchmen and henchwomen.

Now, with the election only 5 months away, with the Corona-virus albatross turning the corner, with the universal blame of China resonating around the world, with the WHO demonstrating every day that it is the puppet of the Chinese Communist Party, the support for the President’s course on the pandemic is turning the corner. The economy has a good chance of roaring back to life. Bad news for the Democratic Party. These are two key issues.

Never one to waste publicity of a death, the Democratic Party is now pushing riots around the country over the Floyd arrest and murder (I defy you to find a Democrat who would dare criticize the rioters for wanton rioting as opposed to protesting, as opposed to egging them on in the face of this example of “racism” (never mind the rule of law, which is the whole argument against the treatment of Mr. Floyd by the police in the first place), and ignoring that in our system of law the officers involved with be subjected to justice and the officer involved has already already been arrested for murder*. The riots are good news for the Democratic Party. The party will fan the flames of riots for as long as possible, operatives of the party around the country are likely mobilized to support the riots and its leaders and bail the arrested out and keep the whole “revolution” going until the election, if possible.

However, once the connection is made between the Democratic Party and the chaos, the few who want revolution will be crushed by the many who want their lives normal, want their streets open, want to go back to work and back to school, and they will NOT support the riots. Now the Democrats are encouraging their followers to kill police officers, burn buildings and police stations, go after “white supremacists” which according to the Democratic Party playbook is any white person in the U.S. So far the riots, like in the past, are simply an excuse for mayhem and looting, and grabbing lots of “free stuff”.

The Democratic Party, now the Democratic Socialist Communist Party, has been fomenting revolution since 2016, and almost every single policy it has pushed involves censorship of ideas it doesn’t like, killing any chance for people to excel and better themselves (and choosing instead “leveling the playing field” by cutting the legs off any successful person (except Hollywood moguls who support them)(e.g., California deciding public universities such as UCLA and Berkeley will not accept the SAT and ACT tests as qualifications in favor of something else, more likely to result in fewer highly qualified students and more lower standard students, rendering a degree from those institutions tin degrees instead of platinum degrees.) This is the new America according to the Democratic Party. Keep in mind that for 8 years Obama told the world and the country that America was not exceptional. Now his party is ensuring that it will never be exceptional. I like an exceptional America. We and the world need it to be exceptional.

So we have this political party that secretly celebrates every corona-virus death because they can use the number against the President under their “absolute liability” theory (although so many deaths are attributable to the mismanagement of the pandemic in New York by the Governor and Mayor of New York), celebrates every time the stock market goes down, celebrates every criticism of the President by an enemy (thus siding with Communist China, Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, North Korea and others), celebrates censorship by MSM and social media of all opinions and facts opposed to the Democrats’ ideology, and celebrates the propaganda mills for their extreme leftist ideology established on most college campuses around the nation.

Though I have been a member of the Democratic Party since 1970, I did not vote for a Democratic Candidate in a long while, and it is hard to justify it when the Party was moved so far to the left by Clinton, then Obama and now Obama’s acolytes. The Democratic Party is anti-Asian, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-Caucasian, anti-religion, anti-military, anti-success and, so so sadly, anti-American. I vehemently oppose the Democratic Party revolution. I reject it. I despise it.

Davos Has Become an anti-Capitalism Socialist Club with No Credibility

An Associated Press anonymous anti-capitalism piece which appeared in the Taipei Times and other publications today entitled “Rising inequality eroding trust in capitalism – survey” is nothing more than liberal propaganda masquerading as “scientific” research. What else is new?

“[T]he survey found that rising inequality in many rich countries has contributed to a weakening in trust in capitalism.”  The paradox is not that this is true, the paradox is that socialist mouthpieces, funded by guilty liberal billionaires throwing money at socialism from lofty penthouses and 50,000 square foot mansions, with fame and celebrity and pals in Hollywood and London and Paris people fawn over, access to the mainstream media (a liberal bullhorn around the world), a penchant for slogans, like “populism” and “white supremacy” and other similar epithets creating the impression that capitalism is unfair and “racist” and socialism is the light and the way (most of them cannot define socialism except to say it is not capitalism), but they secretly balk at giving up all of their cash when confronted.

Trouble is, every socialist experiment in human history devolved into dictatorship, cruel, punishing, daunting, crushing dictatorship (Venezuela is a good example, Cuba another, the Soviet Union, “Communist China”, and so on). For proof that articles like this about fantasy research hold any validity we need only read the article straight out of Davos, infected with this socialist disease: ““Fears are stifling hope, and long-held assumptions about hard work leading to upward mobility are now invalid,” [Edelman] said…Corruption, corporate misbehavior and fake news are eroding trust, he said, as are fears over automation in the workplace, a lack of training, immigration and the gig economy…The survey showed that 83 percent of employees globally were concerned about their jobs.”

Is this the comment of a neutral researcher, fixated on the truth, or is it the statement of a committed liberal hell bent on producing the appropriate “scientific” result to produce this socialist trope? This is not objective research. It is a game aimed at a particular result.

The liberal socialist cadre sit in a circle all day long intoning their bullshit and after awhile since they only hear themselves they think it is the truth…it is the beginning of the end for hard-working people to raise themselves up through education, hard work, entrepreneurship, opportunity, and survival. Socialists want the government to take care of everything (basic needs, and not one cent more), so ordinary people only have to listen to the government, obey and bow down, and the socialist cadre can make the rules and enforce them. Like China…or Cuba, or Venezuela, or North Korea…idiots. Morons. I see through the propaganda, like this article and Davos itself. More brainwashing. More propaganda. It is not a meeting, it is a socialist answer in search of a question.
