Chinese Democracy: Marxist-Corporatist Fusion Regime Declares War on American Republic, and the Neocon Corporate Courtiers Applaud

@SohrabAhmari

The regime-approved conservative intellectuals here remind me so much of the regime-approved dissidents in my native Iran.

We're now going to see US sanctions --- a la Iraq and Iran --- applied to religious conservatives, economic leftists and others who reject the reigning corporate woke orthodoxy.

Oh, you don't think there are 157 genders? There goes your access to banking!

@SeanParnell

Every Democrat should be joining with Republicans to say that this absolute monopoly on the dissemination of political speech controlled by colluding tech giants is a threat to our republic.

Censoring law abiding individuals & businesses for 'wrong think' is anti-American.

@ClayTravis

Big tech companies all simultaneously reaching exact same decisions when it comes to banning individuals & businesses demands antitrust action. It’s monopolistic collusion, yes, but it also destroys marketplace of ideas & is a far bigger threat to the country than any individual.



The Chinese government restricts free speech on the internet, but big tech companies in the US are now so powerful -- and colluding -- that they have created monopolies which dictate which online speech is allowed. It should terrify anyone who cares about the marketplace of ideas.

In other words, the first amendment jurisprudence of the United States is predicated on the government not prohibiting speech. But the Internet has created such powerful companies that their power to restrict speech is now more all encompassing than the US government's.

This shouldn’t be a partisan issue at all. The marketplace of ideas allows fringe ideas to win the battle of minds. It’s how our country evolves. Many liberal & conservative thoughts that are now ascendant were once fringe minority positions. Stifling that debate makes us China.

Remember not just who's doing this, but who enabled it, who encouraged it, and who is currently justifying it.

That's right: Your "True Conservative" Tribunes of the People.

The people who you've supported for years, donating each time they rattled their cyber-beggar's cup.

The people you thought you were supporting to bring the complaints of those outside the DC power elite to the DC power elite, informing the DC power elite of the ways in which we were dissatisfied by them and the changes we wanted the DC power elite to make as a corrective.

But who instead, the whole while they were delivering the complaints of the DC power elite to the hinterlands, informing the outside-the-beltways suckers and yahoos of the ways in which we were dissatisfying the DC power elite, and telling us the changes the DC power elite demanded we make as a corrective.

2 How are you guys handling your Leftist friends/family going full combative?

This weekend I had family members toss out grenades concerning the events of January 6th. I quickly rebutted their assertions with facts, and then the discussion became heated and unproductive.

I then had friends do the exact same thing in our email "basketball" thread. The discussion went exactly the same way.

I am a live-and-let-live type of person. However, as soon as you punch me, I will punch back. I will not back down.

I now realize both of the situations I described above, are clearly lose-lose scenarios. If you "win" the debate, they hate you because Leftists cannot abide by losing. However, if you don't toss back the grenades they throw, then they win by asserting false facts.

Anybody had great success walking this tightrope?

I prefaced telling her that with "I think you're smart enough to understand this or I wouldn't waste my time".

We've got along great since then. She honestly loves and respects me.

Avoidance. I've been appalled at the opinions of my two closest friends, and they certainly must feel the same way about me. To maintain the friendships we have a modus vivendi of just not going there. It makes me wonder, and these are people I love who have been very close for 40-plus years, how much this avoidance has defined our relationships over the last five years.

I am not sure Leftists are capable of that level of restraint. I have always debated them into submission on almost every single issue. They thought the events of January 6th were a surefire winner.

82 How are you guys handling your Leftist friends/family going full combative?
This weekend I had family members toss out grenades concerning the events of January 6th. I quickly rebutted their assertions with facts, and then the discussion became heated and unproductive.
I then had friends do the exact same thing in our email "basketball" thread. The discussion went exactly the same way.
I am a live-and-let-live type of person. However, as soon as you punch me, I will punch back. I will not back down.
I now realize both of the situations I described above, are clearly lose-lose scenarios. If you "win" the debate, they hate you because Leftists cannot abide by losing. However, if you don't toss back the grenades they throw, then they win by asserting false facts.
Anybody had great success walking this tightrope?

I've been meaning to ask someone of the Jewish Persuasion about that. Hardly any below-zero days at all this winter here in the southern part of the 907.

What's up with that? Are all the weather control people off work because of Teh Covids or something?

I'd figure that the weather machines could be controlled over the Internet nowadays, but maybe not?

Unless they are willing to at read or watch the facts before a debate, it is useless and devolves into them walking out, getting mad, or throwing up their hands and saying forget it.

The Leftists literally cannot help themselves regarding picking a fight over politics. As the scorpion says after stinging the frog and causing them both to drown, "I couldn't help it. It's in my nature."

I guess I will continue to work hard to help my friends and family. However, I am no longer going to swim across the river with a Leftist on my back!

179 2 Pillage Idiot,
Amygdala hijacking. Socratic method is one because everything is posed as a question. Other is to agree and exaggerate. And so on. Books are around on that if you want but it does require that you become a manipulator of people like a salesman because even in Aristotle's age, most people do not think logically and cannot handle dialectical conversations. If you read the webpage, thou shalt not commit logical fallacies, you would recognize most of these statements and then be able to pivot to the best way to assuage that person's emotions behind the statement.

Leftists often believe they are the smartest and most virtuous people in the room and that they cannot be fooled. Contrary facts then hurt --for example collusion with evil or where the left simply lied about something--e.g. Trump's Ellipse speech.

You can get around that but not by arguing facts but using rhetorical tricks. Think of the resistance that people have to car sales people but a good sales person gets around those objections and seals the deal more times than not.

He makes a living talking, writing about Democrats vs Republicans.

But he will never and has never fought for any idea or person on the right that will threaten the DC establishment's power over the average citizen.

He didn't fight the coup plotters (Russia) after the 2016 elections nor did he fight to protect our votes in 2020.

Heh. Thanks for the reply. I'm not really a fan of his either, although I really don't know him very well. Never listened to his radio show, saw a few of his youtube video clips.

One thing about him I saw that turned me off of him was this...he was doing a Q&A and he said he was utterly opposed to a lefty getting fired for their opinions, no matter how awful. America / conservatives are Hitler, etc. But....in the same Q&A he said he was absolutely in favor of racists being fired. Anti-American/anti-religious=OK. Racist=Bad. And I couldn't square that.

I'm not saying that racism is good and should be praised. But I couldn't see how one was OK, and the other should get you fired.

I worked with a well-known hedge fund where the CEO knew from experience he had too many people, but all of them seemed busy, so he wanted to figure out what was wrong with his process flow. It turns out their system of record was on ancient AS/400's that were being maintained by about a dozen old contractors who knew the system. They were manually taking inputs and feeding them into the system, then manually taking the outputs and putting them into various reporting formats.

253 155 Rodrigo,
Big L libertarians sold out to corporations years ago by using every argument to prevent government regulation of them or taxation of them but their care was specific to allowing corporations to run amuck with open borders and unfair trading.

Richard Posner's crackpot law review article proposing selling babies on the open market to the highest bidder is an example of this sort of rot. It doomed any attempt for him to get a Supreme Court seat and eventually a soured Posner railed against the 2A, Bush v. Gore, and every other conservative idea.

Arizonans have no constitutional right to online privacy to keep police from demanding information about them from internet providers without first getting a warrant, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled Monday.

In what appears to be the first ruling of its kind in the state, the court said internet users have no "reasonable expectation of privacy" that the information they furnish about themselves to their internet providers will be kept secret. That specifically includes who they are and their home address.

That means police and government agencies are free to obtain that information - the gateway to finding out exactly who is posting material - without a search warrant, the court said

310 How are you guys handling your Leftist friends/family going full combative?

************

My lefty family disowned me a long time ago and I dropped the last of my lefty friends after WOO FUK MAI LUNGS went into full swing last March, then deleted all my social media accounts.

The only friend I have left is a little angry voice in my head demanding that I show it my man boobs for some reason.

319 El Jefe I mentioned it several times while I was trying to shut down the hostages, which they have yet to forgive me for, but I gave every opportunity, to where finally I just deleted it.

Wickedpinto is a character. It started after being a part of the comments making thoughtful statements and being ignored, that finally a story came up, and I said, "that's it, FULL OUTRAGE AND EGO!" and the regulars knew it was a schtick, but the outsiders were like, "Who's this guy he's hillariously crazy."

And after about 5 years of that It was just too much. . .It takes effort to maintain that kind of outrage, even if it's mostly false. So I deleted Hostages, went silent on Moral Authority, and stopped commenting regularly.

Basically same story as everyone else who walks away. . . .burnout. I still visit Ace several times a day, but being the character of Pinto was just painful.

322 I noticed that both the Federalist and American Greatness websites published "storming-the-capitol-was-insurrection" articles in the last few days, along with an article on my PDT should be impeached (proscription is GOOD, you know....). Not to mention the Victor Davis Hanson article at AG in which he went out of his way to stab PDT in the back (at least that was my impression... and I thought VDH was one of the good guys). This is alarming.... if those two sites are crumbling, then the leftists have made a huge breech in our defenses.... Very discouraging to see the world set upside-down.

332 "Deutsche Bank, which has been Mr. Trump's primary lender for two decades, has decided not to do business with Mr. Trump or his company in the future ... Mr. Trump currently owes Deutsche Bank more than $300 million, which is due in the next few years.

Another longtime financial partner of the Trumps, Signature Bank, also is cutting ties. The bank - which helped Mr. Trump finance his Florida golf course and where Ivanka Trump, was once a board member - issued a statement calling on Mr. Trump to resign as president "in the best interests of our nation and the American people."

Susan Turkell, a spokeswoman for the bank, said Signature had decided that it "will not do business in the future with any members of Congress who voted to disregard the Electoral College." Ms. Turkell said that in the wake of the riots the bank began closing Mr. Trump's two personal accounts, which had about $5.3 million."

No commie friends left IRL, a few friends-in-a-box on other places on the intertubes, but I've kind of gone dark there.

The only leftist relative I have is 20 yrs old, insists he's transgender, and just got kicked out of his parent's house last month because he's a sneaky little shit who absolutely refuses to get a job or go to college because it would intrude on his videogame time, and isn't smart enough to show enough respect for his parents to keep the gravy train running.

Another relative took him in to keep him safe, on the condition that he has NO electronic devices at all.

I won every single contested amount. (They were all BS.) However, I am now a register Democrat. (DINO) I have not been audited since. Probably coincidence, but if three times is enemy action, then nine times is certainly cause for concern.

Reminds me of a story about a baseball manager who was arguing with an umpire over a call. The manager asked, "Will you throw me out of the game if I say you're an idiot?" The ump said, "Yes." The manager then asked, "Will you throw me out of the game for what I'm thinking?" The ump answered, "No, of course I can't." The manager then said, "Fine. I think you're an idiot." The manager was thrown out of the game.


You're gonna deplatform me for saying that the election was stolen? Yes. Are you gonna deplatform me for my thoughts? No. Fine, then I think the election was stolen.

The third one today was a 7 year old kid smarting off as I walked by him and said 'hi'. I stopped a few paces away without turning and pondered: his mama is standing right there and said nothing to him. Is this because she taught his this shit? Probably. Obviously she don't rate a asschewing and the kid certainly doesn't. I kept on walking because too many times in the past I wasted my time talking to bonafide racists. Bartender!

FBI warns 'armed protests' being planned at all 50 state capitols and Washington DC

The FBI has received information indicating "armed protests" are being planned at all 50 state capitols and the US Capitol in Washington, DC in the days leading up to President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, according to an internal bulletin obtained by CNN.

But they were never able to find antifa or BLM people. The FIB is going to love the Biden administration. Nightly, no-knock, no-warrant raids will be policy, not mistakes.

Posted by: Jaimo at January 11, 2021 08:32 PM (NXGjq)

427 Parler should do what Amazon did and build hosting services as part of getting back up and running. It's not easy, but with some refactoring and agile processes, they might get things up and working slowly.

They can then sell services back on to other sites looking for a home.

Except of course there will eventually be DNS blocks and their servers will effectively be shut off from the internet.

428 To clarify, AWS is not just hosting, it provides a bunch of software and services that your application runs on. Its not just getting a computer with a web server on it and hooking it up to the internet.

AWS provides virtual machines to run on, databases, storage, event buses, backups, lambdas to run code, monitoring, deployment mechanisms etc..
