The Democratic Party is Imploding

When I lived in Denver many years ago before Hickenpooper tried his run at politics I actually met him one time in his poolroom downtown, a friend told me he was a good brewer, had a good chat about the bad direction Colorado was taking(californication) and that he wanted to be a part of reversing that course via politics.
Whatever happened to that guy I ask myself as I read the article you posted.
So many people are lost. A cancer.
I imagine when you told him about the "Californication" of colorado he didn't hear a problem but rather an opportunity.

Stimulus bill DOA. Pelosi has no art of the deal under her belt. Just bad deals on bad deals and Dems think this is = to winning.

So here we have a former General involved in an effort to censor the President of the United States and his supporters, using information warfare technology originally intended to fight ISIS terrorists. This is neither the first, nor will it be the last such example of a former national security officer using tools designed to fight America’s adversaries against Trump-supporting American citizens.

Infamously biased anti-Trump Tech behemoth Google sponsors a project known as Jigsaw whose main purpose is to develop Artificial Intelligence capabilities to censor so-called “hate speech” online. Of course, hate speech is weakly defined, and almost always ends up casting a wide net. Inevitably, those censored tend to be Trump supporters concerned with law and order, fighting open borders, and ending America’s wars. The man who runs Jigsaw, Jared Cohen, is a veteran of Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Cohen made a name for himself in developing digital strategies to advance American national security objectives.

Jigsaw, a technology incubator within Alphabet, says it has developed a new tool for web publishers to identify toxic comments that can undermine a civil exchange of ideas. Starting Thursday, publishers can start applying for access to use Jigsaw’s software, called Perspective, without charge.

“We have more information and more articles than any other time in history, and yet the toxicity of the conversations that follow those articles are driving people away from the conversation,” said Jared Cohen, president of Jigsaw, formerly known as Google Ideas. [CNBC]

“Toxic” is, of course, a term of art used by censorious globalists to justify shutting down speech they don’t like.

Discussion in comments sections often devolves into an offensive and hateful exchange unless it is carefully managed. This has prompted some publishers to turn off the comments section on articles because moderating them can be time-consuming and difficult.

With machine learning, a computer system is programmed to learn from repetition. It takes in training data — essentially, example after example — until it is familiar enough to anticipate with a high degree of confidence the proper response for a given situation.

In this instance, Jigsaw had a team review hundreds of thousands of comments to identify the types of comments that might deter people from a conversation. Based on that data, Perspective provided a score from zero to 100 on how similar the new comments are to the comments identified as toxic. [CNBC]

In case there was any doubt about the political bias of this technology, the first use-case should offer a pretty clear hint:

Jigsaw worked with The New York Times and Wikipedia to develop Perspective. The Times’s comments section is managed by a team of 14 moderators who manually review nearly every comment. [CNBC]

And in case there was any doubt about Jared Cohen’s national security bona fides, the following passage should offer similar clarity:

Cohen’s directorate appeared to cross over from public relations and “corporate responsibility” work into active corporate intervention in foreign affairs at a level that is normally reserved for states. Jared Cohen could be wryly named Google’s “director of regime change.” According to the emails, he was trying to plant his fingerprints on some of the major historical events in the contemporary Middle East. He could be placed in Egypt during the revolution, meeting with Wael Ghonim, the Google employee whose arrest and imprisonment hours later would make him a PR-friendly symbol of the uprising in the Western press. Meetings had been planned in Palestine and Turkey, both of which—claimed Stratfor emails—were killed by the senior Google leadership as too risky. Only a few months before he met with me, Cohen was planning a trip to the edge of Iran in Azerbaijan to “engage the Iranian communities closer to the border,” as part of Google Ideas’ project on “repressive societies.” [Wikileaks]

So, in General McChrystal we have a former General in Afghanistan involved in a firm deploying information warfare tools designed to fight ISIS against Trump supporters. In Jared Cohen, former Hillary State Department official turned Google’s “director of regime change,” we have a man deploying military grade AI censorship tools to police internet conversation, with politically predicable biases.

These two troubling cases must be understood within the context of the undeniable corruption of large swaths of America’s national security bureaucracy–from the CIA, to the FBI, to the DOJ, to other top military brass. Over the past four years we have seen how each institution has been corrupted and repurposed–not to advance American national security interests, but to suppress expressions of populism and nationalism domestically. Ironically, while the national security establishment likes to accuse its adversaries of using weapons “against their own people,” increasingly corrupt elements of the national security state are doing just that—repurposing our vast security apparatus to suppress political expression and activity at home.

Perhaps the most disturbing example of this is the recent claim by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security that “white supremacy” is the biggest national security threat. True white supremacy is virtually non-existent in the United States, and any efforts to “combat” white supremacy simply amount to code-language intended to justify the use of the security apparatus to intimidate and silence conservatives, populists, and nationalists.

The case of McChrystal, his fellow general Mattis, and similarly corrupted individuals in the broader national security apparatus force us to acknowledge difficult truths. Just as Americans had to learn the hard way that corporate America has become fully corrupt with woke ideology, so must they now confront the reality that the same disease has thoroughly infiltrated institutions that Americans traditionally thought of as patriotic and conservative. This infiltration includes the police forces, the FBI, and even the Military, and it goes all the way to the top. As this process accelerates, we run the risk of having our country’s formidable security apparatus increasingly abused for political purposes–specifically to persecute and suppress conservatives.

Such disturbing developments remind us of the stakes of the broader political struggle in which we are engaged as citizens and patriots. We must come to realize that every single institution in the country has come under the control of forces that are utterly hostile to the interests of the American people. To acknowledge this reality with a sober and clear eye is not to give in to demoralization or defeatism. To the contrary, only with a clear eye as to the nature and scope of the challenge we face will we be able to successfully rise to a moment that calls for the very best in us to save our great, and greatly imperiled nation.

I present you with a hilarious example of southern democrat politics, now being upended.

So, the city proper of Memphis, which is incredibly black, crime ridden and poor is represented at the federal level by a democrat with the last name Cohen....Mr. Cohen has been in Memphis politics in one form or another since 1978.

How a city full of black people consistently elects a person of a very different ethnic heritage to office seems unusual to me.

Anyway, welcome to 2020. Mr. Cohen has a republican challenger who is a black woman, her campaign strategy is just to call Mr. Cohen a racist https://www.commercialappeal.com/st...aid-germantown-pac-battle-america/3616269001/

pretty entertaining.

Conjecture.
AC :

Bernie Sanders humiliated after throwing a ‘rally’ for Joe Biden, only to have only a handful of people show up. Is it possible Bernie’s massive crowds could have been Cabal ground-intel, assigned to show up and act excited for him? Maybe nobody remembered to give them the orders this time, because Joe’s handlers thought Bernie’s handlers would put out the orders, and Bernie thought Joe’s handlers would handle it, so the ground troops never got deployed to act like fanboys? Bernie’s crowds would push in our minds the idea there are throngs of ideological leftists, obsessed with leftist politics, and crazy as loons, to do shit that damages our country. And it would push the Overton Window leftward, making the eventual nominee look less batshit insane, because over to their left is Bernie, spouting even crazier shit. Maybe the vast, vast majority of kids aren’t really interested in politics because it is boring (especially in this dopamine rich environment), and even fewer are into ideological leftism as spouted by a guy who could have ridden the first railroad car to travel from coast to coast. Would you have given up a night of video games, or hanging with friends drinking beer around a bonfire, or doing martial arts, or cruising around town with friends, to stand somewhere listening to an ancient politician talk about the minimum wage when you were 22? Maybe they sent those massive crowds in under orders, simply to push those ideas to us and manipulate us. I can’t judge the probability to assign to this model, simply because nothing is what it seems these days, and everything seems like manipulation. But I know many many kids at that age could give a fuck less about political philosophy and would either tend to do nothing, or have something else they would rather do.

Is it simply regional?
Easy for Silly Sanders to amass thousands in San Fran, Berkeley & Portlandia, yet very few other places?
Are they bussing too many Pantifa Clowns all over the country side to cause strife & therefore can't amass for Silly Sanders?

Either way.
Wonder what Sub Sanders thinks having to have Bumbling Biden as his Dom...

None of us should care about a fake news leftest network like fox. They are full of never trumpers (and always have been) with a handful of exceptions
Fox is mainstream media and inhibits one's ability to think critically and independently. Just like the other major networks, it's corporate and state sponsored propaganda. Ditch your TV if you haven't and never look back.

While I generally hate the "lets label the other guy as a rascist" tactic... (((Cohen))) is a real cocksucker who said he would give Peter Strzok a Purple Heart if he could. I'd vote for a black republican over him any day.
 
In Texas, this fat tatooed cow named Hedgar ran against a black guy and won. The black guy now says she is 'da rasis' and won't vote for her.

The Democrats also said that by the Texas GOP appointing Colonel Allen West, that to was 'da rasis'. You can't make this stuff up!

Just a daily reminder that this was the guy who let Joe feel up his daughter on camera. And he kept up a big stupid smile on his face while it happened. It's already in the Biden thread. On page 23.



It goes to show you that you've got to shill for your fellow club members until the very end, I guess.

50Cent, even after all these years of irrelevant music is still seen as the Trump of the rap world and many blacks will see his outrage at such higher tax rates to come under Biden's watch as the turning point for which direction they should vote. And that direction is to the right.
Simple messaging here: Higher taxes means less money in your pocket which is what rap is NOT about.
