And Now They've Come for Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head

(Image by Tom Stiglich)

 Just when you think the Wokestapo would hit rock bottom in their quest to uncover something to be offended about--they start to dig.

Today, is Read Across America Day (2 March), a nation-wide effort to encourage children to read.

But one author, who's on the top of the annual event is noticeably missing--Dr. Seuss (Theodor Giesel), who was born on this day

Zhou Biden shoved the beloved author down the Memory Hole.  

This move is most likely to support the woketards in Virginia's Loudoun School District which declared Dr. Seuss's works to be "too controversial," and contains "racial undertones."

In addition to rooting-out racism--where it doesn't exist--the Wokestapo has infiltrated corporations and convinced them to go full-woke.

Mr. Potato Head is expected to get neutered "rebranded" to a gender neutral "Potato Head" in some lame attempt at "inclusivity."

Or something.

While there's so much dire happenings going on in our nation and across the globe it may seem trivial to spend blogspace complaining about how woketards are mishandling children's books & toys.

But it's through reading and playing that children learn how to socialize in order to become functioning adults.

This is something the Wokestapo is trying to inhibit by turning children into indoctrinated drones, and crushing any enjoyment they may get in Life.

Update, 1000 Hours, 2 March:

This just in:  6 Dr. Seuss books to be cast down the Memory Hole.  Not just ignored, but "cancelled."

Then They Came for the Muppets

Just when you'd hope the Wokestapo would run out of items to be offended about--they still manage to find something to get triggered about.

A few days ago, Disney added an "Offensive Content" label to The Muppet Show.

What the "offensive content" is remains unclear, and like everything other form of censorship and Cancel Culture, the vagueness is a deliberate attempt to keep normal people off-balance and even afraid to engage in wrongthink.

With the drastic increase in censorship since "Zhou Biden's" handlers keep telling him he's president, I've been posting more political content directly on Facebook.

I try to take a swipe at Cancel Culture put a humorous spin on my such posts, in what I call Your New Order Humor Break for Today.

Here's my recent one on this topic du jour...

Your New Order Humor Break For Today:

Comrades!  You may have heard that the Disney Division of the Ministry of Truth placed a warning label on The Muppet Show.

We're sorry we can't tell you what The Ministry deems offensive--because you might find such knowledge offensive.

Remember:  Censorship is for your own good. 

My wife's a big fan of the Muppets, and I'm glad we have the whole set on DVDs.

Cara Dune Cancelled

(Image by Margolis & Cox)

 In a Normal World, the firing of an actress from a movie/TV production would be confined to pop culture and celebrity gossip.

However, we live in The New Order's Clown World, and the impact Cancel Culture--a euphemism for The Memory Hole, in Orwell's 1984--is being felt by many.

Ben Shapiro explains this in his reaction to Gina Carano being cancelled by Hollywood on how ordinary people are wary of being accused of wrongthink.

Other YouTubers, some from the coalition calling themselves the "Fandom Menace," who were in the middle of a fundraiser to end human trafficking when the news broke, also chimed in:

Jeremy, of Geeks & Gamers warned--if you don't line up with the left-wing Narrative they will take you down.

Paul Joseph Watson--Gina Carano did nothing wrong.

Anna, That Star Wars Girl--Lucas Films bows to the hate mob.

Just Some Guy shows his knack for referencing poetry--And they came for Gina Carano.

Lauren Chen calls for--cancelling Disney Plus (I never had it to begin with).

Young Rippa 59--questions why Gina Carano was fired, when Disney still employs deranged leftists

Mecharandom 42, "your favorite Youtube harpy," also points out Disney's hypocrisy which allows Krystina Arielle's blatantly racist tweets to go by unpunished.

And Drunk 3PO--expressed how much the fans loved both the character and actress.

I don't have any video streaming service, and haven't watched The Mandalorian.  I've heard great things about the show.

Until now.

Anthony Brian Logan (ABL), is another YouTuber, who's not a Star Wars fan, even posted a video on "unacceptable" tweets

Unlike any other Hollyweird celebrities, there's no sense of schadenfreude in this case, nor at watching the left eating their own. 

Instead, Carano's firing proves that Cancel Culture is a real menace.

From what I'm catching up on, Gina Carano, seems like a normal, decent person--which is why woketards felt compelled to tear her down. 

And just like that, this Cancel Culture brew-up made me an overnight fan of Gina Carano--while I've long given up on following and supporting the Star Wars franchise.  

A franchise which has been reduced to meme-fodder, especially when Life imitates Art...

Leftist Admit Their 2020 "No Election Fraud" Lies

(Image by Mike Lester)

 Ever since the Ministry of Truth and the Dimtards declared Beijing Biden (a.k.a. "46*") the undisputed winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, any non-lefty questioning the "irregularities" that occurred throughout Election Day--and beyond--was labelled a conspiracy theorist and threatened with being deplatformed on social media. 

Now we're in the middle of a congressional impeachment hearing of Trump--now a private citizen.  

Not only is this unprecedented in our nation's history, but it's an affront to our nation's founding principles--in which the Dimtards are giving the middle finger to unity forever

If I weren't recovering from major surgery, and so disgusted by this, I might delve into this in a more timely and detailed fashion.

Maybe.

But for now, I'll point out another affront to our nation's founding principles, specifically our election process.

Leftist love to twist and manipulate language.  

What us like-minded folks call "voter fraud," Time declared it The Shadow Campaign That Saved The 2020 Election

Yeah. Right.

However, despite this admission, YouTubers, like Lauren Chen have to tiptoe around the labels of "fraud" when discussing Time unveiling the leftist conspiracy, and Facebook has already restricted Tim Pool for unspecified reasons as he chimed-in on the manipulation of laws and news to influence the election

True, there were a lot of things Our Grand Nagus could have done better, as Tal Bachman points out in his 2020 Election Post Mortem.

I for one, liked, or at least tolerated Trump's tweets.  

As I've half-joked with others, I've felt American politics have been boring ever since the Hamilton-Burr "Debate" of 1804

Anyway, Beijing Biden and his handlers don't have the mandate they proclaim.

It looks like Trump and the GOP came within a total of 90K votes of winning it all

I know it's a small--if any--consolation, which could make the next four years harder for us like-minded folks.

Especially when any one of us could be painted for not going along with leftist orthodoxy of The New Order...

Smalltime Day Traders' Say "Foxtrot Yankee" to Big Business

(Image by Steve Breen)

 

I took both Macro & Micro Economics back in junior college.  About all I currently know about playing the stock market is:  Buy low, sell high.

My skills at high finance involve balancing my checkbook and living within my means.

So it took me some time to digest what's been going on with GameStop

Ben Shapiro provides the best explanation in what he calls The Funniest Prank on Wall Street Ever.

Lauren Chen also explains it as GameStop Wars: Wall Street Strikes Back!

Or as I like to call it:  The Big "Foxtrot Yankee" (phonetic alphabet "F," and "Y," for "F*ck You") to Wall Street.

This latest event, along with everything else that's happened since the 2020 Presidential Election--not to mention all of The Year 2020--as people, like Sydney Watson, what is even happening?

While us like-minded folks think it's hilarious that a pack of small-time day traders outsmarted the Big League Hedge Funders, not everyone's happy, especially the minions within Beijing Biden's administration:

(Image:  Tweet posted by Charlie Kirk)

Nor is this the only time that an activity was shut down.  There's been a trend since Election Day 2020 to "close down early."

(Image:  "Pay Attention," posted on Facebook by Angi Maclaren)

Kurt Schlichter observed:  GameStop lets you see the Matrix.

I agree. 

Our Political Ruling Class, or Uniparty, is Hell-bent on subjugating and even destroying the middle class.  We're living in what The Diplomad calls:  Chaos in the time of Biden.

While it doesn't look like things will improve anytime soon, we can at least take a moment to say:

Suck it, Wall Street! (And the Biden Administration, and the Democrats, and, etc....).

Beijing Biden's First Week In Office

(Image by Lisa Benson)

 Beijing Biden's first week in the Oval Office was a busy one.  He signed 40 executive orders.

The key item on Biden's list was cancelling the Keystone Pipeline on his very first day.

In addition to killing jobs in the energy industry with the stroke of a pen, Biden also opened the US-Mexican Border.

(Image by A.F. Branco)


Next up was demanding schools allow transgender athletes to compete in girls' sports...

(Image by Margolis and Cox)

...along with lifting Trump's ban on transgender individuals from serving in the military.

Beijing Biden isn't acting alone.

He has plenty of help in concocting bills, laws and executive orders that will turn America into a workers' paradise hellhole.

(Image by Gary Varvel)

Oh, and taxes will be increasing in order to pay for all the "Build Back Better" programs that we're being told will benefit the masses.

(Image by Steve Kelley)



And finally, there's the fawning media gushing over Biden

(Image by Al Goodwyn)

I find the media's adoration of Biden to be more creepy than their love of Obama.  During the Era of HopeandChange, the media's minions truly believed in Obama's well-managed poise and eloquence. 

Now after a mere week in-office, Biden worship strikes me as being hollow.  

He's proved to be a gaff-machine, and almost always seems to be confused during any public appearance.  

 The sycophantic media are merely virtue signaling in an Emperor's New Clothes sort of way, to proclaim their loyalty in the face of today's Cancel Culture acolytes, that are now calling for punishing and degrading Trump supporters

Which does nothing to make the sudden calls for "unity" sound more like "conformity," especially since the Dimtards are Hell-bent on pushing police state policies through Congress.

Erasing the Era of "Trump the Usurper"

(Image by Gary Varvel)

On the eve of Basement Biden's inauguration, Democrats are using the military to send a "power" message to America

The excuse is to protect The New Order's befuddled leader from an "insider attack."

And the FBI ran background checks on military members in the DC Swamp

The man who was Our Grand Nagus for the past four years plans to leave the DC Swamp long before Joe's sworn-in.

I'd like to write more detailed and timely blogposts about the transition from the "Era of Trump the Usurper" to "The New Order."

However, I'll on duty these next few days, and will be too busy at work to immediately comment on tomorrow's happenings in the DC "Green Zone;" along with the first days of Harris' Biden's presidency.

I at least wanted to post something on Our Grand Nagus' last day in office, before Dimtard & RINO apparatchiks complete their work.


(Image by Margolis & Cox)

With the growing calls for censorship and outright purging of Trump supporters from the Dimtards, the Ministry of Truth, and woketard activists, I fear it won't just be Trump's legacy that will get memory holed.

The New Order is Upon Us

(Image by Tom Stiglich)

 
Shortly after the Capital Building Boogaloo on 6 January 2021, Twitter permanently banned Our Drunk Dialer in Chief on the flimsy excuse he "incited violence" with a couple of tweets.  

Just about every other social media outlet, many I've never heard of, banned, suspended, or restricted Trump's access to their platforms.  (And the authors of this particular article appear to be okay with this).  Search engine, Firefox, which my agency uses, joined the Stalinists.

While Big Brother Tech is trying to stifle Our Grand Nagus' ability to reach out to his supporters and conservatives in-general, dictators, terrorist sponsors, communist regime mouthpieces, criminals and all-round hate-mongers still have their accounts open.

Even trends like "Hang Mike Pence" were (still are?) allowed to continue.

To paraphrase Orwell:  Some social media users are more equal than others.

Welcome to The New Order...

(Image found on Facebook)

...where the Woketard's Purge is just beginning. And it won't stop with Big Tech.

Social media has become more leftist over the years...

(Image by Gary Varvel)

...and became emboldened after banning Trump by initiating a Lib-Fascist Purge over the weekend.  

It's being said "thousands" of rank & file conservative accounts were deleted over the weekend.  (Sorry, I have no exact numbers on this claim)  

In response, Our Grand Nagus managed to skirt the ban briefly enough to tease "a big announcement." 

Rush Limbaugh didn't wait to get purged, but deleted his own account before the algorithmic commissars could do so.

I'm appalled that published authors, some I know or have at least met personally are cool with censoring Trump, MAGA Hat Wearers, Republicans in-general.  Ironically though, the ACLU, (no fan of Trump) understands the slippery slope we're sliding down.

Small-time bloggers (say, less than 1,000 dedicated followers), like The Diplomad and Stilton's Place, wonder when their site will be cast down the Virtual Memory Hole.


(Image by A.F. Branco)

I'm wondering the same thing myself.  I think what's "saving" me for now is the small size of my audience.  But like Diplomad and Stilton, if the censorship and purging continue as we fear it would, I don't think I'll be able to keep "flying under the radar screen" of the algorithmic commissars for very long.

When the time comes for me, or any of you in these opening days of The New Order:  Dance to the line.

2021's "Orientation Week"

(Image posted on Facebook by Tiffany Michelle Tamburin)

Well, now that "Orientation Week" for 2021 is over, I'm now in a position to discuss some of the low points.

Last year, Dimtard politicians didn't let the Chy-Nah Virus crisis go to waste and almost immediately acted as if the Divine Right of Kings, was reinstated.  Or "DRoK 2.0" as I like to call it.

(Image by A.F. Branco)

Throughout 2020, we saw Dimtards violate their own Covid Lockdown decrees--

--Chicago Mayor, Lori Lightfoot getting her haircut, despite closing barbershops and hair salons.

--Nancy Pelosi followed suit in the fall.

--While CA Governor "New Scum" went to went to a party, just to list a few examples.

One would assume that after several months of getting called-out our dictator wannabees would get the hint.

Instead, to start 2021 off in typical style, Mayor "Moff" DeBlasio of the Rotten Apple, rang in the New Year by dancing with his missus in Times Square that he ordered vacated due to Covid concerns,

Right after New Year's Day, the 117th Congress set out to accomplish the most important task on their to-do list:  Wage war on the family  replace traditional family terms with "gender neutral pronouns" in all Congressional activity

This bit of Woketard Theatre was topped off by the Congressional Invocation being concluded with:  "...amen and awomen."

(Image by Michael Ramirez)

Ben Shapiro declared this was the stupidest thing he's ever heard and reminded us that "amen" is not a gendered word.

Unfortunately, the first week of 2021 wasn't limited to poking fun at idiotic Dimtards.  Because the two idiotic RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) managed to lose the Georgia Run-Off Election (5 Jan 21), each by less than a 1% margin.  

So now we're stuck with a majority in both houses of Congress.

Sadly and tragically, things went from bad to worse.  

The day after the Georgia Run-Off, (6 Jan 21), Congress convened to certify the Electoral College votes.

Early that Wednesday morning, thousands of Trump supporters gathered for a "Save America" Rally, because this is how millions of us like-minded folks feel about the election:

But by early afternoon, the demonstration turned ugly as protestors stormed the Capital Building, and clashed with security, leaving 4 dead.   (Update:  5 dead to include one woman shot,3 others dying of various injuries and one Capital Hill police officer).


USA Today has a timeline with maps and graphics available in order to help get your bearings. 

I was off duty during the "Capital Building Boogaloo," due to medical reasons.  So I chose to ignore the event as it was unfolding, focusing on gaming hobby projects.

Reading the virtual outrage on Facebook during breaks was bad enough, though.

Left-leaning friends and acquaintances, who were silent during last year's BLM/Antifa riots as scenes like this exploded across the country...


(Image by Mike posted on Twitter and Facebook)

...were now suddenly filled with righteous indignation.

And I'm not putting up with any of it.  

Not from individuals, and especially not from the media and their "mostly peaceful demonstrations" coverage throughout last summer.

Do I agree with the storming of the Capital Building?

Of course not.  

Just like the BLM/Antifa rioters of last year, I think the people who broke into the Capital Building should be prosecuted, and it looks like they could face up to 10 years in prison, if convicted


Take-no-prisoners White House spokeswoman, Kaleigh McEnany, issued a statement on behalf of Our Grand Nagus

On the other hand, I detest those who were silent--or worse--condoned last year's rioting, like "Commissar Cortez:"


(Image:  Screenshot of AOC's "Uncomfortable" Tweet)

Who's tweet isn't aging well (but her communications director is attempting to get Twitter to ban people from using this tweet).

And Commissar Cortez isn't the only one who's statement hasn't aged well:

(Image found on Facebook)


But all this was okay with the Ministry of Truth, the Dimtards and their woketard supporters.

As for the events of January 6th, at the time I'm writing this, we still don't know the full details.


I don't believe the Capital Building Boogaloo was a complete False Flag Operation, but we do know at least one Antifa member was inside the Capital Building

While I share similar frustrations of my fellow Trump supporters, I believe Tim Pool to be correct in saying this may backfire on us like-minded folks.

Several weeks ago, Mark Steyn warned about "things moving quickly" under a Biden Presidency and Democrat-led Congress.

We're started seeing this, as--





Nor is the crackdown limited to Our Grand Nagus and a handful of RINOs.  


Funny, I don't recall such a hue & cry from the "Friendly Skies" during the BLM/Antifa "mostly peaceful demonstrations."


However, I have the a healthy dose of cynicism towards the bleating of "...this is not who we are..."

Especially since it's been condoned, silently or aloud, and even encouraged by leftists during the riots perpetrated by their de-facto paramilitary goon squads.

Now that "Basement Biden" will be sworn-in on Inauguration Day (20 Jan 2021), and keeping in mind his campaign promises, here's a glimpse into what could lie ahead...

Continuing With the Covid Year

(Image by Tom Stiglich)

 

As 2020 comes to a close, I’ve been busy with personal, financial and medical issues.

The Nation is also in a “wait and see” phase.  

Wait and see what happens with--the Georgia run-off election, Our Grand Nagus’ 2nd (3rd?) attempt at getting the Supreme Court to review the presidential election, and the looming inauguration of Basement Biden, a.k.a. President “46*.”

The Year 2020 has been hard on all of us, directly or indirectly, to some degree or another.

It’s been the “Brian Stelter of Years.”


(Image by Chip Bok)



While there’s some good news about 2020, from an historical and technological perspective, we’ll have to contend with the fallout of the pickle woketards are putting Basement Biden in.

No matter what the New Year brings, our hopes for 2021 won’t be fulfilled by a politician, but by us.

Best wishes to all of you and Happy New Year!

Christmas In The Year 2020

(Image by Tom Stiglich)

 Well, it's Christmas Day in The Year 2020.

I hope you and yours have an enjoyable day, despite the year being hard on all of us in one way or another..

I recently subscribed to Summit Properties NW's YouTube Channel.

The company's owner, Sean Reynolds', videos give a good account of the impact the lockdown and other government decrees have had on local and national businesses.

News that you won't find covered on network news...


(Image by Steve Kelley)

...like:



The CHOP/CHAZ is back (Capital Hill Occupation Zone/Capital Hill Autonomous Zone), this time in the form of a homeless encampment in Cal Anderson Park.

And so much more.

Personally, I think there's more behind the Dimtards' collective hard-on against restaurants and gyms than just picking economic winners and losers.  

In addition to being places of business, restaurants and even gyms are places where people go to socialize.  I believe this is part of the Dimtards' plot to isolate each and every one of us from family and friends.

As The Year 2020 winds down, I don't have any confidence that Basement Biden, a.k.a"46*," and his handlers will handle the Chy-Nah Virus Pandemic effectively.  

The Dimtards, and the Ministry of Truth seem to go out of their way to kowtow to the Chinese Politburo, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) should be held accountable for unleashing the Wuhan Flu upon the world.

(Image by Gary Varvel)


We still have the Georgia Runoff Election to face, along with the scheduled inauguration of "Basement Biden."

Let's pray that somehow 2021 will be better for each of us.

In the meantime, Merry Christmas!
