Trump Triumphant

From what I saw of the second debate Trump won easily, seemingly against both Hillary and the moderators. As for his crude comments. I suspect most of his base will not care about them. They’ve probably enjoyed sex or fantasised about doing so with someone they are not married to. They’ve also probably been party to crude conversations and heard crude jokes and songs.

As for his non-core supporters, he has been painted as such an ogre that airing him talking about making passes at women will not make much difference. It’s not exactly in the same league as being a traitor or starting a nuclear war.

Given Trump is not running as a family values evangelical Christian type; any Republican hypocrite label will not stick.

Hillary is running as a strong supporter of women’s rights. Her covering up and facilitating rape and abuse goes against her narrative. For many of her supporters it is toxic. Those who are principle based Democrats rather than tribal will be turned off. There will be Democrats who are unaware of the strength of the case against Hillary & Bill. Trump is able to burst through the media barricades, so they will find out. I’m not sure what percentage of Hillary supporters are both principle based and ignorant. But for them the hypocrisy will also be apparent and further undermine their support for her.

If it carries on like this it will be a Trump landslide, partly due to a low turnout for Hillary.

The “You’d be in jail” quip puts the Democratic and Republican establishment on notice that they too will be held to account. That incarceration rather than just fines could await them. Also in disavowing Pence he informs the military industrial complex that he is serious about reigning it in. The chance of assassination and intelligence service type dirty tricks has gone up several notches. Crooks, crony capitalists and Party establishments are not just fighting for their commercial and political lives, but their freedom.

That said the voting intentions here suggest an “independent” upset is possible. The panel will have been stacked with Democrats, so it is particularly worrying for Hillary. No wonder the big guns focused on Gary “Aleppo” Johnson. One wonders what they had on his deputy to make him just want to prevent a Trump Presidency.  Given all his calls and emails are captured it would be surprising if pressure could not be brought to bear. Now and always. Trump may not have been subject to the same degree of tracking in the past due to his expected irrelevance.

It could be a very interesting election. Certainly worth breaking out the popcorn and enjoying the show. There will be more “developments”. Let’s hope democracy wins. The alternatives down the line are far worse.

Soros, Clinton collusion on Police & BLM


“Leaked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s personal email account published by WikiLeaks reveal the Clinton campaign’s coordination with George Soros’s Open Society Foundations on the subject of police reform.

Soros, who has given almost $10 million to Clinton super PAC Priorities USA, is a major funder of Black Lives Matter. The Washington Times reported in August that Soros has given at least $33 million to the group through the Open Society Foundations (OSF), which he funds and controls.

Both OSF and Clinton have called to crack down on police officers’ “implicit bias.”

As reported by The Daily Caller last month, internal OSF documents say the mainstreaming of “implicit bias” is meant to serve as a foundation from which to overhaul the nation’s anti-discrimination laws and make it easier to file racial discrimination lawsuits by eliminating the need to prove intent.” A boon to the lawyer lobby, a core component of the Democratic Party “elite”.

Global Warming Scam


Incentives create a type of behavior. If you want to achieve something which requires influencing public opinion then you create think tanks, grass root’s organizations, facts & figures. You stigmatize, engage in lawfare and personalize attacks. You seek to reward those espousing the cause and cause harm to those who stand against it. This of course includes spreading lies and disinformation. It’s a standard modus operandi which cuts across subject areas. This is why you have to be skeptical when examining data and theories of the world.  Data and theories of the world are the building blocks of your cognitive frameworks and mental models. These in turn shape your understanding and actions.

Given how our brains are wired, you have to be doubly skeptical about something that confirms your prejudices. It drops your defenses. Similarly you have to review and follow the thoughts of those you disagree with. You have to in order to mitigate the tendency to discount evidence that contradicts your beliefs and to test your assumptions.

If you’ve not read/watched their work in its entirety then you’ve probably only been exposed to straw man propaganda. If you are not truly familiar with their work, then check out some of these:
