GRIFT, PT. 2

This was a good comment about grift from Monday's rant:

49 Here's another reason the Right grift works:

People on the Right mostly default to trusting people. We're the guys who return shopping carts, help people carry things, watch each other's stuff. We donate to charity way out of proportion to our wealth.

We're suckers, basically.

Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards, get ready now at July 19, 2021 10:29 AM (V6f9+)

I would add to this the oft-photographed fact that we pick up and clean up after ourselves when our rallies and mass meeting events are concluded. Unlike the oh, so environmentally-conscious left, which trashes the place and leaves the mess for others to deal with. Can you imagine the participants of one of those Trump boat rallies dumping their trash into the water before going home? I know they didn't, because if they did, the MSM would've filmed it and showed the footage non-stop for a week.

And, to tell the truth, I'd rather be susceptible to con artists than to live my life in a perpetual state of suspicion and paranoia wherein I believe that everyone I encounter intends to somehow rip me off. I've known individuals like that, and they're not happy people. I don't want to be like that.

But I do know that following Jesus' command to be wise as serpents but innocent as doves (Mat. 10:16) is a tricky balancing act. Part of the 'wise' part is that we shouldn't buy things just because the words 'patriot' or 'freedom' is embedded the brand or product name.

As mentioned in the comments last time, the latest grift aimed at conservatives is something called the "Freedom Phone", which is supposedly a smart phone that is supposed to be both secure and uncensored. I think that's a bit of a contradiction, but here is the announcement from the Bitcoin millionaire CEO:

This is the first major pushback on the Big Tech companies that attacked us - for just thinking different.

Complete with it's own Uncensorable App Store & Privacy Features.

We're finally taking back control.

OK, but where's the beef? Finding out actual specifics about the product is impossible There's a lot of advertising hype, but nothing specific. And the product website is even worse. There is literally no there there. The site looks like a "proof of concept" mock-up you would use in a proposal to potential investors. It says there's an app store, but there's no link to it. In fact, the only links are to the purchase/shopping cart page. The phone will be pre-loaded with Rumble, Parler, DuckDuckGo, OANN, Newsmax, and whatever other "conservative" apps there might be, but why can't we just load those apps on the phones we already have? We can side load them if Google has banned them from from its store, can't we?

Another red flag is that the Freedon Phone costs $499(!), but it appears to be a rebranded Chinese knock-off you can buy for $180 or less elsewhere. So, at the very least, it's waaaay overpriced for what you're getting.

Plus, how secure can a phone using open-source Android actually be?

The problem is, with all of the lefties jeering at it, we naturally get defensive and think it must be pretty good. But not this time. Commenter clutch cargo mentioned this YouTube video by a right-leaning guy who goes into a lot of detail as to why this phone should be avoided.

As I said last time, there's a fine line between 'grift' and and 'scam', and even though it's perhaps a bit early to to know exactly which one the Freedom Phone is, it has a real scammy feel to it, and there are enough red flags that even if I were in the market for a $500 smart phone, I wouldn't touch it.

What's depressing about this grift is not that it exists, but that some high-profile conservatives such as Candace Owens and Dinesh D'Souza have apparently signed on to it and are promoting it. Of course, there's money involved. Every time somebody buys one using, say, Owen's promo code, she gets a kickback. So there's some financial incentive for these bigwig sponsors not to do a lot of due diligence.

So caveat emptor, y'all.

-----

One more thing: it used to be that our country's richest men, and I'm talking about titans of industry like Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford, Vanderbilt, etc., used their billions to improve the lives and culture of their fellow Americans by funding libraries, endowing universities and establishing hospitals and museums. But that was then. Nowadays, all we have is the spectacle of the richest man in America riding into space in a giant dildo.

AoSHQ Weekly Prayer List

Please submit any prayer requests to “Annie’s Stew” at apaslo atsign hotmail dot com.


Prayer Requests:

5/21 – SB’s mother was just diagnosed with cancer; they will get the full results on Wednesday. He requests prayers for her and for his father.
6/16 Update – The diagnosis is that the cancer can be held back and even reduced with simple medication. That will work for a year or two with no reduced quality of life; after that we (and the doctors) don’t know.

5/24 – Katya, the designated driver sends an update on her cancer treatments. She has finished her 33 rounds of radiation with minimal side effects and is starting to feel great. This week she stats a chemo pill for the next 4 months. She also will continue to receive Keytruda infusion treatments every 3 weeks. As far as she knows the cancer is gone but will not know for sure until she receives the final scan. She sends her thanks for the love and prayers.
6/21 Update – Katya says she is doing well but dealing with a myriad of minor but annoying side effects: fatigue, sleeplessness, erratic heartbeat, hot flashes, increased appetite, water retention, etc. They are also treating minor lymphedema. She is taking her second round of the chemo pill and tapering off the massive dose of prednisone. She will finish Keytruda infusions at the end of September. She says “thank you all for your continued love and prayers”.

6/16 – Agamemnon asks for prayers for God’s comfort and peace for the family of a young man named Levi, who played baseball with Agamemnon’s sons, who passed away from leukemia. He was 20 years old, a bright and cheerful guy who, despite the challenges of battling cancer, over the last 10 months, inspired and encouraged others.

6/16 – Joe Mama needs prayers for healing and avoidance of bankruptcy. He went to the ER on 5/27, where they discovered 4 DVTs (blood clots) in his right leg plus another in his left leg, and a pulmonary embolism. He’s had 3 more trips to ER for complications since then. They also incidentally discovered degenerative disk disease in two vertebrae on of the CT scans of his lungs.

6/18 – Ladyl requests prayers for Danielle and Kristin, who lost their home during Covid, but are now both working. Kristin has vasculitis, which is causing nerve and neurological issues.
7/8 Update – Please keep praying for Danielle and Kristin and their health issues. Also, they recently lost their current home, when the owner decided to move back in.

6/16 – Lee Also requests prayers for her friend, a lung transplant recipient we prayed for at the end of last year. He was doing well with the transplant but recently got an infection. He’s back in the hospital and getting tested and prodded. He’s not doing well at all.
6/24 Update – Lee Also’s friend passed away on 6/24.

6/26 – NaughtyPine needs prayers. Both of her parents have been diagnosed with cancer this week, and she will be helping with transportation to appointments and treatment. She lives about 4 hours away from her parents, so will be living with them at least part of the time. She asks for prayers for healing for her parents and “Coping Gainzz” for herself.

7/7 – Tonypete requests prayers for Anna. A lifetime of too much drinking has caused monumental problems with her health and well-being. She has been sober for a few months and things are looking better, but every day is a huge mountain for her to overcome. Prayers are needed for her to stay on the path.

7/12 – Weak Geek asks for prayers for comfort and strength for the wife and daughters of his former co-worker M.S., who died last week at age 57 after his health took a plunge last month. God grant the women strength.


For Healing:

6/15 – Hands requests prayers for his father, who has cancer and will be going through radiation and chemotherapy this summer. Please pray for a successful treatment and beating the cancer.

7/03 – Slapweasel requests prayers for Psych_bear’s dad, who just found out he has stage 4 kidney disease.

7/15 – Taxpayer1234 would like prayers for her mother, who had a heart attack while coming out of anesthesia for cataract surgery. She is conscious and able to speak, but was being transferred to a different hospital for angioplasty and will need to spend time recovering. Taxpayer1234 asks for prayers for total healing and a speedy recovery.

For submission guidelines and other relevant info, please contact Annie's Stew, who is managing the prayer list. You can contact her at apaslo at-sign hotmail dot com.

Romans 8:26-27:
[26] In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. [27] And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.

If you see a prayer request posted in a thread comment, feel free to copy and paste it and e-mail it to Annie's Stew. She tries to keep up with the requests in the threads, but she's not here all of the time, so she may not see it unless you e-mail it to her.

Please note: Prayer requests are generally removed after five weeks or so unless we receive an update.

Monday Who Dis: Somebody thought that Marie Osmond recorded a country music album featuring a track where she sang Meet Me in Montana with John Schneider, which is almost true, only it wasn't Schneider, it was Dan Seals. What actually links Schneider and Ms. Osmond is that they were co-founders (along with 2 others) of the Children's Miracle Network, which raises funds for children's hospitals all over North America. It may be the only thing that is keeping our country from descending into the abyss of total depravity.

It's a mistake I think to believe "most people want the same things." Reagan had it right. "Trust, but verify".

Leftists ultimately depend on decent peaceable people's willingness to get along, compromise, negotiate in good faith, and a decided bias towards avoidance of conflict. They've got the psychology of normal people all gamed out. So there's a never ending tsunami of mind-fvckery and manipulation going on like nothing ever seen, all with an ultimate a of permanent political power for statist wankers and otherwise unemployablw wack jobs and further, un-assing Americans from any input into their own society.

Yeah, the Rothschilds looted the rest of the world's gold to pave American streets. And then painted them black because America is racist.

Stunning combination of double digit IQ and Dunning-Kruger effect. Of course, the global warming people want to paint everything white including the rain forest. But can you imagine if streets were actually white? You'd almost need to wear welding glasses to drive on a sunny day.

69 Such solitary confinement is torture. Elizabeth Warren spoke out against that torture of these political prisoners ... not many others have.

I haven't seen details on just who is being held, but I thought it was like 30-50 total. There are more like 300-500 charged but released, I think. None of the FBI's agent/asset agitators are charged (I'm sure).

Who were the cops firing the flash bangs and pepper spray into the crowd behind the barricades, trying to incite a riot? I'm sure the leftists on the investigation team will get to the bottom of it.

The ones I know aren't advocating for communism or violence ) So, I think it's probably naive to assume all leftists are either weak physically or ugly.

326 And I've posted this before, but the people who want to replace the "Star Spangled Banner" with "Lift Every Voice and Sing" would probably not be happy with the third stanza of that song:


God of our weary years, God of our silent tears,
Thou Who hast brought us thus far on the way;
Thou Who hast by Thy might, led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee.Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee.Shadowed beneath Thy hand, may we forever stand, True to our God, true to our native land.

They wouldn't be happy because it's an unapologetically religious song and "being true to our native land" is talking about America. Colin Kapernick would not want to sing this stanza.

394 15 And now with the Sgt Pepper link, I expect the usual snark about how the Beatles sucked.

The Beatles appropriately appropriated American culture. I would hate them but they were really good songwriters. And don't get me started on their covers of twist and shout and rock and roll music.

395 Sorry, my glandular bias blinds me to such features. I try to provide a shirtless pic if I can find I good pic. And searching for "men with great asses" is going to take me to homo sites and I don't particularly want to sift through photos of naked, hairy buttocks.

LOL. Can't say I blame you.

397 Most, if not all of the individuals who get caught pretending to be conservative were just grifting off the rubes who believed they were sincere. The dipshits at BRCC used "black rifle" in their name to evoke a particular response from people. Their marketing was likewise directed at a particular demographic. These were conscious decisions made by the company to appeal to right leaning customers while the truth was they are a bunch of leftist goons.

I suspect every organization, company, etc. of this and look hard at them before accepting them at face value.

The Freedom Phone is the BRCC of the cellular tech market. It's all grift, all the time.

398 364 As in most things, TX is its own little world. It doesn't fit in to the categories the rest of the country uses. It's not really red or blue.... it's just.... Texan.

399 241 Pretty much all the teams around the world kneel now. Not even sure they comprehend why
Posted by: steevy



Peer pressure. Also, if they don't kneel to whatever Woke cause that is in vogue, they will lose any sponsors that they have because all corporations are part of the Cult of Woke.

400 RE: 'Freedom Phone" ...here's a vid from a guy that's been making google-free phones long before the Freedom Phone showed up. This vid was live stream discussing said phone.

Agree with the stick legs, my number one choice for identifying MTF. Also, the iron jaw so common in Hollywood women. Don't know about the dress, that's reaching lol.

I can't even watch Hallmark Channel anymore which is sad.

405 WRT billionaires flying into space instead of donating their money. I want MORE space travel, or whatever project they want to fund as a business. Every foundation and institution funded by the rich always ends up as a left wing circus in time. It funds all the wrong people. I want to see more Musks and less Gateses. Don't just sit back and give away money, keep starting more companies and building more industries. It does more good for more people than just writing checks to leftwing grifters.

406 Going off of what the soyboy Jeremy thinks is a mistake. He isnt right wing is is simply not a crazed leftwit. How about someone that owns the phone chimes in?

409 If I understand it correctly, the Freedom Phone is just a knock-off phone running GrapheneOS.
Graphene OS is open source and you can install it yourself on any compatible phone. See also LineageOS.

410 Couple of things on the "Freedom Phone":
First, open source on Android *can* be fairly secure - if you never install any sort of Google app on it. And you don't use Google to update it.

Second, you're complaining about a $500 phone? Every phone you get at the phone store costs you a bunch more than that! I bought an unlocked $300+ phone because it was about the only "low-end" phone I could find that wasn't obviously Chinese or a flip-phone. (I would prefer a phone I don't have to hit each key multiple times to get certain letters, so no flip. But they don't sell the sliders anymore, so smart phone.)

I'm not saying it's great marketing or a great setup. But it's out there, and it's at least a choice you have - compared to all the other non-choices you have.

411 "Nowadays, all we have is the spectacle of the richest man in America riding into space in a giant dildo."

Oh, fer cryin' out loud. Go suck a persimmon, cuz.
That shot into space was better than a library. And if you only saw a dildo, then your mind is diseased.
