RE: Politics & War Lounge

Are they fucking insane?

The headline in the article was changed I guess, because the header says:

Quote:Three Palestinians killed after deadly stabbing in Jerusalem


So Palestinians stab an Israeli woman to death, they are killed, but the first headline is that some Palestinians were killed by the evil Israelis.

Also she was a hottie:[Image: _96526368_israeliwoman.png]
Fucking Muslim animals.


This is beyond insanity!

This is like Vienna 1683 headline:

"Tens of thousands of Ottomans killed by the misogynist Islamophobic racist hateful white Christian Austrians and Poles! A sad day for mankind! And woe the poor and oppressed Ottomans who just wanted to enrich our culture."

RE: Politics & War Lounge
I posted some about Laura Loomer in the DT thread, but didn't want to de-rail too much. Apparently Rebel Media and Laura Loomer had "freelaura.com" registered before the Shakespeare in the Park play even took place. Whole thing was a scam.

http://animeright.news/evolasbae/freelau...ion-scheme

Quote:Alt-Lite Journalist Laura Loomer got arrested last night for getting on stage and disrupting the Julius Caesar play that depicted Donald Trump being assassinated. She and Jack Prosobiec streamed it while he shouted that everyone in the audience was Joseph Goebbels.

She then made a huge spectacle about it outside after she was escorted out by security and arrested, acting as if she were a martyr for the cause for engaging in criminal behavior and tactics that mirror the left.

Shortly after she started tweeting a link to a website freelaura.com pleading for people to donate to help with her legal funds. She now faces charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.

She and Jack among other Alt-Lite personalities pushed the hashtag #FreeLaura and got it trending at #4 in the US. What she forgets to mention is that she did this for the $1000 reward that Mike Cernovich offered to anyone who would disrupt this play a week prior.

After some investigation by anons of the donations website set up for Laura, it was revealed to have been created hours before the incident by no other than her boss Ezra Levant of Rebel Media. GoDaddy lists it as being created at 18:07 that day. Jack uploaded the footage of the incident at 21:13

Link to GoDaddy report

This shows definitive proof of collusion with Rebel Media and scheming to make profits from the donations for yet another Alt-Lite personality who gets themselves into trouble and expects everyone to bail them out.

To make matters worse, she is calling anyone who criticizes her an Anti-Semite.

This accomplished absolutely nothing for the cause except annoying some liberals for a few minutes. Other than that, it made "free speech" conservatives look like total hypocrites to people in the political middle (since the play had been done before, but with Obama, and since the right has complained about leftists shutting down right-leaning speakers.) and lined the pockets of another alt-lite media celebrity.

I agree.

This faggotry is simply reverse virtue signalling and accomplishes nothing. This play nonsense immediately struck me as a complete load of nothing that gained far more notoriety by virtue of the Right paying attention to it.

The Griffith incident was tactically suitable for repercussions because it was high profile to begin with and an easy win.

Fucking around with a bunch of LARPers who charge admission is simply giving them a far larger platform than they had already and turning them into political victims rather than allowing them to remain malcontent asshole nobodies.

This is part of the lie being spread by fake news right now in order to neutralize the narrative.

The truth is that they did the 2012 Julius Caesar play with a random Black guy. Because the guy was Black, that means it was Obama. tard In reality, it was a Black man who looked NOTHING like Obama. Could have been any Black man.

The context is entirely different as well; the Black "Obama" Ceasar gets assassinated by the Whitest Guys You Know which sparks a righteous mob that comes to avenge his death, while Trump gets assassinated by diverse women which sparks a huge racist crowd of Whites to come and murder all the hapless minorities.

It's all bullshit, I'm glad they interrupted this supposedly high act art, fuck them and I'm glad they found a Jew to do it too.

30 GOP Congressmen Have Been Attacked or Threatened Since May


http://freebeacon.com/issues/30-gop-cong...since-may/

Quote:A total of 30 Republican members of Congress have either been attacked or revealed that they were the victim of a death threat since the beginning of May.

May 8: Wendi Wright, 35, was arrested after stalking Rep. David Kustoff (Tenn.) and trying to run him off the road. After pulling over, Wright "began to scream and strike the windows on Kustoff's car and even reached inside the vehicle."

May 9: Virginia Rep. Tom Garrett needed heavy security at a town hall after receiving a series of death threats in May that police "deemed to be credible and real."

"This is how we're going to kill your wife," one message said. Others detailed how they would kill his children, and even his dog.

May 12: A town hall participant accosted North Dakota Rep. Kevin Cramer, shoving fake dollar bills into his suit jacket. A Kramer supporter grabbed the same man by the neck. Both men were ejected by law enforcement, but neither were charged.

May 12: A Tucson, Ariz. school district employee was arrested by the FBI for sending several death threats to Arizona Rep. Martha McSally. The man threatened to shoot McSally and told her to "be careful" because her days "were numbered."

May 21: Florida Rep. Ted Yoho described his office getting vandalized by protesters. One female constituent left a voicemail on an office answering machine, promising, "Next time I see you, I'm going to beat your f**king ass."

June 14: Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Jeff Flake (Ariz.), and Reps. Steve Scalise (La.), Kevin Brady (Texas), Jack Bergman (Mich.), Mike Bishop (Mich.), Mike Conaway (Texas), Roger Williams (Texas), John Moolenaar (Mich.), Gary Palmer (Ala.), Chuck Fleischmann (Tenn.), Ron DeSantis (Fla.), Barry Loudermilk (Ga.), Mark Walker (N.C.), Steve Pearce (N.M.), Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Jeff Duncan (S.C.), Trent Kelly (Miss.), Mo Brooks (Ala.), and Joe Barton (Texas) were attacked by a gunman during a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Scalise, the House majority whip, was shot in the hip, and remains in the hospital. Four others were injured, including a staffer for Williams and two Capitol Police officers assigned to Scalise.

The same day, New York Rep. Claudia Tenney received an email reading, "One down, 216 to go."

June 17: Missouri Rep. Ann Wagner revealed that she had gotten five death threats in the weeks leading up to the Scalise shooting. Wagner said that protesters had been "vandalizing my home, showing up with masks and gravestones, and laying down on my driveway and drawing chalk outlines of dead bodies. Picketing my church at 8 and 10 o'clock Mass."

June 22: An Ohio man was arrested for leaving a voicemail threatening the life and family of Rep. Steve Stivers (Ohio).

"We're coming to get every goddamn one of you and your families. Maybe the next one taken down will be your daughter. Huh? Or your wife. Or even you," the man said.

The same day, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz played a threatening voicemail he had received on "Fox & Friends."

"I suggest you prepare for the battle motherf**ker, and the apocalypse," the caller yelled. "Because we are going to hunt your ass down, wrap a rope around your neck, and hang you from a lamppost."

I bet all Congressmen will get some kind of Secret Service soon.

The hypocrisy never ceases to amaze..

California Expands Civil Servant Travel Ban To 8 States

Quote:As 'The Left' rages about President Trump's so-called "travel ban" from 'mostly-Muslim' nations for its dreadful discrimination, the liberal-ist of liberal states has decided that California civil servants should be banned from traveling to eight US states because "we will not spend taxpayer dollars in states that discriminate."

Having unilaterally trotted over to sign a climate accord with China, secessionist California is restricting publicly funded travel to four more states because of recent laws that leaders here view as discriminatory against gay and transgender people.

All of these actions the liberal states are undertaking - banning of travel of civil servants, as well as signing treaties with foreign nations - scream unconstitutional. Interacting with foreign powers is duly reserved for the Federal Gov, and the right to association and movement between states is guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.

I expect these measures to wind up before the Supreme Court in the next few years.

Surely that "travel ban" only extends to state funded trips for state-civil servants travelling on business, in which case it would be perfectly legal however stupid and misguided.

They have no power to determine how state employees spend their own money in their own time and trying to enforce Communist-esque travel bans outside of state workplace duties would be too ridiculous, even for that pack of clowns.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

Better question.

How worthless are a bunch of marines facing tank battalions and thousands of Russian troops near home soil? You fly in 10,000 US marines the Ruskies will nuke them without a second thought.

These stunts are nothing until something kicks off.

Travel bans against fellow states, official or not, are insane and probably unconstitutional as well. Disputes between states should be resolved by lobbying the federal government to step in, not by autonomously enacting punitive measures.

His replies were about something else, I think his "institution building" was referring to this: https://counter.fund/

It's an alt-right crowd-funding platform that he's working on

Richard Spencer, Sam Hyde, and even Roosh have all said good things about it.

Vox Day Wrote:Access journalism and fake news

The Zman explains the link between the two:

Quote:It has been thrown down the memory hole, but Jordan decided the way to help black sports reporters was to give them exclusive access and deny access to honkies. Guys like Ahmad Rashad and Michael Wilbon were given special access. This made their careers, but it also ushered in the era of access journalism. Players granted access to reporters who were willing to sing their praises in their columns and on TV shows.

Something similar happened around the same time in Washington politics. The Clinton machine was ruthless in controlling the media. They would shutout reporters that did not play ball. There’s always been some of this, as people are naturally going to be nice to those who are nice to them and not so nice to people they see as adversaries. The difference was, the Clinton team turned this into a formal policy and the Washington press corp went along with it. They liked being treated like players so they acted accordingly.

The Bush people could not play the same game, as the Washington media is universally liberal, but they did a little bit of it with operations like Fox and the talk radio guys. Rich Lowry of National Review remodeled the magazine to be a GOP mouth piece for exactly this reason. It gave them access to Republicans. The Weekly Standard largely existed as a public relations vehicle for the Bush family. Much of what has gone wrong with Buckley Conservatism is due to the perils of access journalism.

This is why we see the explosion of fake news. The NBA guys want access or at least the illusion of access. To that end, they tweet out rumors and fake news in the hope of getting a reply from an agent or front office guy. That way they can then shoot down their own rumor or fake news with an actual quote from a real person. “After talking with person X, I can now report that the rumor I reported is false.” Fake news about rumors produces gossip that is eventually addressed by a real person in the news.

That seems to be what’s going on Washington with all the fake news. No one in the Washington media bothered to develop contacts in the Trump team. Instead, they mocked and harassed them through the campaign, figuring they were currying favor with the Clinton people. Now, they have no access so they create fake stories hoping to get a response from the Trump people. In lieu of real reporting, it is provocative fake reporting in the hope of gaining access to real people in the Trump White House.

This is all pretty much news to me, but it's as explanatory as anything else I've heard suggested. Personally, I find it a little strange that Fake News has exploded at the very time that it has never been easier for the average individual to do a little looking around the Internet to debunk it.

The Norwegian-Russian border is completely free of tension, there is a few border guards on either side and both countries have excellent and cordial co-operation in arctic search and rescue mission, so once again neocons are creating tension where none existed before.

RE: Politics & War Lounge
God only knows how many of these idiots have infiltrated the state department:

U.S. Ambassador: ‘As an American, I Have to Support Gay Marriage All Over the World’

Quote:The Obama-appointed ambassador to Romania, Hans Klemm, has stoked a national debate on the role of U.S. diplomacy abroad by openly advocating same-sex marriage as the country deliberates over a proposed constitutional amendment affirming traditional marriage.

Last month, Klemm attended a widely publicized Gay Pride march in Bucharest on May 20 to show his support for the LGBT agenda in a country where same-sex marriage is still illegal. Klemm Joined the 500 marchers who met to demand “equal rights and visibility for the LGBT community” in the event organized by Respect, Romania’s premier LGBT national lobby group.

A proposed referendum would enshrine the traditional understanding of marriage as the union of one man and one woman in the national constitution.

Last fall, Klemm explained in an interview with a Romanian news agency why he publicly pushes for gay marriage.

While acknowledging that it is a “sensitive subject,” Klemm claimed that the U.S. Supreme Court had “resolved the legal problem over gay marriage, stating that it is unconstitutional and illegal to deny civil marriage to same-sex couples.”

“Therefore, the U.S. should support gay marriage everywhere in the world,” Klemm stated.


Klemm’s overt advocacy of gay marriage has met with backlash in the conservative country, and the ambassador has been criticized for abusing his position to meddle in the internal affairs of the nation. One of the most celebrated journalists in Romania, Ion Cristoiu, the founder of the country’s most important daily newspaper, has publicly accused Klemm of being “not the ambassador of the USA but of Hillary Clinton.”

The journalist said that Klemm has used his influential position to promote attitudes against President Donald Trump in Romania despite the fact that most Romanians in USA are Trump supporters.

“I’ve never met a more talkative ambassador of a foreign power,” Cristoiu wrote. “Since he arrived in Bucharest, Hans Klemm has not closed his mouth. He speaks about everything, at any time and in any place. He has also violated diplomatic norms and commonsense rules by speaking about strictly internal issues of Romania.”

In March 2015, President Barack Obama announced Klemm’s appointment as U.S. Ambassador to Romania and in September of that year, Klemm assumed the duties of his new post.

(...)

Meanwhile, Obama-era diplomats around the world are still marching to the orders given by their former commander-in-chief.

It remains to be seen whether President Trump will encourage officials from the State Department to continue to actively agitate for the LGBT agenda abroad, or whether he will instead encourage restraint and greater respect for national sovereignty, faith, and traditions.

Unbelievable, that moron should read his job description.
I mean look at that logic again:

Quote:SCOTUS says that it is unconstitutional and illegal to deny civil marriage to same-sex couples

Quote:Therefore, the U.S. should support gay marriage everywhere in the world

Seriously, what the fuck.
There's ten thousands of young Americans currently studying for a career in the diplomatic service, getting willingly exploited in unpaid internships, dreaming and working hard to become a diplomat one day.

And then this guy, this amateur, who despite his education and long service apparently has no idea what an ambassador is supposed to to and what not, who believes his position is a carte blanche to proselytize and blurt out his degenerate private opinions to a whole nation and people while representing the United States, who openly agitates against the current administration he is supposed to be serving, this guy gets a top job.

Thanks, Obama.

Trump needs to clean up the state department, it has become a globalist, marxist stronghold.
Let's try and introduce some meritocracy to the foreign service, why not just give some young and talented people top positions and break up the entrenched hierarchies in that bureaucratic behemoth.
They can't possibly perform worse.

RE: Politics & War Lounge
The gay rights issue comes from above - this was not Obama's decision and not the decision from the executives in the articles.

If you had applied for the position and were actually vetted, then you would have to be on board with this 100% or you would not get the job.

Sometimes they even link financial aid of third world countries to gay and feminist issues.

"You have no toilets, people are shitting outside, you have no clean water, there is lack of housing, food and basic necessities? No problem - we will help you, but first you need to enact legal changes regard gay, transgender and feminist laws. Then we give you the money that will help you buy [strike]essential infrastructure[/strike], vaccines, AIDS meds & millions in cash for your ruling class."

Chicago gay pride parade expels Star of David flags

[Image: _96686825_capt5ure.jpg]

Quote:Organisers of an LGBT-rights festival in Chicago are being accused of anti-Semitism after they expelled marchers carrying the Star of David.

The rainbow flags with the Jewish symbol "made people feel unsafe", an organiser told the Windy City Times.

Laurel Grauer said she was told to leave the so-called Dyke March "because my flag was a trigger to people that they found offensive".

The organisers later hit back, saying Israel hides behind LGBT-rights.


"It was a flag from my congregation which celebrates my queer, Jewish identity which I have done for over a decade marching in the Dyke March with the same flag," Ms Grauer told Windy City Times.

Ms Grauer, who works for A Wider Bridge, which supports LGBT people in Israel, said she lost count of how many times she was verbally harassed by other marchers on Saturday.

The Dyke March takes place one day ahead of the city's official Pride March.

It is described by organisers as being a "more inclusive, more social justice-oriented" march than the city's main Pride parade.

In a social media post, the Dyke March said: "This decision was made after [the expelled marchers] repeatedly expressed support for Zionism during conversations with Dyke March Collective members."

Ms Grauer told the Times: "People asked me if I was a Zionist and I said, 'yes, I do care about the state of Israel, but I also believe in a two-state solution and an independent Palestine.'


"It's hard to swallow the idea of inclusion when you are excluding people from that," she continued.

"People are saying, 'You can be gay but not in this way.' We do not feel welcomed. We do not feel included."

In a statement, the Dyke March Collective later accused Ms Grauer's organistion of "using Israel's supposed 'LGBTQ tolerance' to pinkwash the violent occupation of Palestine".

A Wider Bridge hit back in a statement, saying: "That the organisers would choose to dismiss long-time community members for choosing to express their Jewish identity or spirituality runs counter to the very values the Dyke March claims to uphold, and veers down a dangerous path toward anti-Semitism."

They called upon the Dyke March Collective to issue a full apology.

Red State, a conservative blog, wrote: "When you're the organizer of a gay pride parade meant to celebrate 'inclusiveness,' then you're not just engaging in bigotry and anti-Semitism, but you're saying to the world you're also a giant hypocrite."
