LPAC 2016

I realized I'm overdue for a chat about Libertarians.  Excuse me while I whip this out.


It is time for Libertarians to have their own show.  And to stop attending CPAC.

CPAC is the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

I propose LPAC: Libertarian Political Action Conference.  Perhaps in Denver.  Here is why:

Conservatives will never support legalized prostitution, legalized meth, legalized late-term abortion, legalized marriage between a man and non-woman, and unanswered attacks on Americans.  Ever. 


It has to do with traditional family values and religious values.  These, with the Constitution, are what made America the greatest country in the shortest amount of time.  Libertarians are pro-Constitution.  Cool.  But like Democrats, they are not just against these family and religious values.  They actively work against them.


I think the douche who said at the 2:25 mark...
Although some conservatives refuse to accept the changing world around them...
...needs to acknowledge his Libertarian bias and admit Libertarians attend CPAC because they'd be seen as the anarchist dope-smoking hippie fringe if they held their own show.  Disagree?  Prove me wrong.




Rand Paul won the straw poll this year.  Ron Paul won it when I attended in 2008, and probably again in 2012.  The value of the CPAC straw poll is the second place winner. 

This year it was Scott Walker.  Gov. Walker differs from Ron and Rand as he is a) a proven executive, b) a realistic presidential contender, c) not an advocate for the legalization of mind-altering substances because "personal responsibility," and d) will bomb the shit out of those who do, or wish to do, America harm. 

That is the short list of how we differ.

As long as Reason continues to pollute YouTube with their 'Libertarian is the new conservative' propaganda, I will remain here to call them out.  And as long as Libertarians pollute CPAC instead of standing on their own, I will call them out.

Libertarians are smart.  They are passionate.  They are committed.  And I have learned a lot from the Libertarians I know.  Having said that... They could launch their own LPAC 2016 conference and create an amazing amount of buzz (pun intended).   Maybe Reason could sponsor it....

To continue to piggyback on CPAC proves, a) the conservative movement has more momentum, better organization and better dressed attendees than the liberal movement, and b) there is more credibility for the Libertarians to siphon and present as their own.


My predictions for 2016 - and I'll bet a Commie Obama hat on one or both of these (assuming supplies last):
Rand Paul flames out in the primaries, and 
Libertarians fail to attract 2% of the vote in the November election and only hope for a spoiler role in one or more battleground state.

Mark had to buy an Obama shirt to play the part.  I have a Che shirt for when I go into enemy territory, but that's because I have standards.

Old Media Tribute #7


On February 10th NBC suspended top anchor Brian Williams for six months without pay.

I collected over 60 meme images mocking Brian Williams’ lying and, by extension, the loss of credibility within the old media.

I will post one of these images every three days until his suspension is over. . .  and trust is restored.

Good News from Russia

Good News!  Comrade Putin has vowed to find the killers of opposition leader Boris Nemtsov.


Mr. Nemtsov was gunned down near the Kremlin Friday night.


Mr. Nemstov was a vocal critic of Putin's invasion and confiscation of Ukraine.

Luckily for Nemtsov's group, thousands of which marched today in his memory, Mr. Putin has promised justice in the murder.



And when I say "justice," I mean the same justice these Putin critics received.

UPDATED 4pm:

Photos of today's march in Mosow here, and here.  Impressive.

Selected comments from the post:

Jon:  I bet they would attend if it was ISIS leader, or the Iranian president. Communist all of them.

Chester: When party lines are seen as more important than the security of a friendly nation we all lose. When a party condones the illegal actions of a President and even helps all should be jailed for treason.

David: The usual lefty suspects. I would bet that they would fight to get to hear an ISIS speaker.

Martha: So shameful obama worse president ever in history I stand with lsrael praying for lsrael God bless them

Bill: I don’t want to go so far as saying that I’m ashamed of being an American, because I love my country and all what it stands for, but this current administration we now have and all these other elected “officials” whose names are listed make me sick. They should be ashamed of themselves …. Nothing but respect for Bibi and Israelis.

Lynda: So, only the people who really matter will be the there. Good.

Julie: Disgusting. Yet they will sit with terrorists?

Mark: Let’s just call them for what they are,Jew haters ,let’s use the The word they like to throw around,racist Yep racist Jew haters
 
John: Just think, Keith Ellison a Muslim and Barrack Hussein Obama will not be there to hear the head of Israel speak. Not surprised at all!

Jay: 0Bama first-tier bootlickers all. Not surprised in the least. I’m betting Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee will have some government-funded trip to LA or Vegas pop up, and she’ll miss it too. Not that she would understand anything Netanyahu will say, so it’s a wash….

missmsry: Some people in congress seem to forget who marched in the front ranks for Civil Rights.

LibSick: This is a list of racist blacks, racist Hispanics, a muslim, a communist, a clueless lying braggart, a gigolo, a couple of blow-hards and some self-loathing Jews. There is no reason for any of these losers to attend the speech; they will blindly follow obuzzard off the edge of the cliff. None of them prizes America higher than their party.
John Boehner is a controversial guy.  He's set the impeachment bar so low that even Obama has not been able to reach it.  I have little good to say for the Speaker, however his invite to Netanyahu was brilliant.  It exposes, finally again, the left's hate for those who choose to confront evil. 

The Gay Option - UPDATED and BUMPED

[orig post 6.2014]

The Gay Option.  Or as I would personally call it, "The Nuclear Option."

I'm just going to float an idea out here:

Some gay and straight white men choose to be openly gay - either to enjoy the legal and financial incentives of minority status, or out of a desire to achieve victim status.

Think about it.
You get instant membership in, and protection services from, the Gay Mafia.  They will shame your opponents.  Ask Bill Maher or Adam Carolla.

You get preferential ranking as a job applicant.  HR, and military recruiters, prefer filling quotas over hiring the best.

If you don't get the job, you can sue for discrimination.  Ask John Garland.

And, the best thing of all, you will never be asked to prove your orientation.  If you're caught with a girl, just say you're bi.  Or that 'she' is a transvestite. 
If you're married to a woman, it still isn't too late.  Just say it is a marriage of convenience.

If you're a Republican, you get the added benefit of eliminating a common smear from Democrats who can't beat you on the issues.  See Gov. Scott Walker.

And if you're a CEO with a weak board, you can keep your job.

The only other option for a white man to claim legal protection is to say he is a Muslim.  Right?  He can't lie that he's missing a leg.  Muslim is out of the question.

Would you agree with me that this has happened, somewhere?  If so, what percentage of openly-gay white men do you think this applies to?

And, if you're a white male, how would you feel if some other white male used this trick to beat you out of a job?  

If one were to explore this idea further, one might conclude that the only authentic gay people out there are the non-whites who were born into their minority status.  In other words, there are no financial or legal incentives for non-whites to make their sexual orientation public with bumper stickers, parades and political action committees. 
Comrade Aaron Clarey authored Enjoy the Decline, a book intended to help conservative Americans set new priorities for our Socialist America.  He teaches his readers to minimize their lifestyle, and thus their income, to stay under the unfair and oppressive taxes.  And, he suggests they consider taking advantage of the expanding welfare system that was meant for society's lazy (liberals).  Isn't this post just an expansion of this way of thinking?

Gays have created a vast utopia of preferential treatment and stifled criticism.  Why would a white male choose to go against this grain?  Further, if the existing momentum continues for the gay political movement, declaring yourself straight may be deemed hate speech in the near future.


This kind of thinking might get some people's panties in a bunch.  This post isn't meant to aggravate anyone, but just spark a conversation.  Where is my logic flawed?  Tell me where I'm wrong.  Would coming out of the closet help Ted Cruz's chances in 2016?

And the obligatory fine print (that I'm only going to say once):  Yes, I have gay friends and have had gay co-workers - in and out of the closet.  I served with gay men in the Army - before it was legal.  I've socialized with Log Cabin Republicans, right-wing gay bloggers and their gay readers.  Any discussion about homosexuality here at Ushanka is aimed at the gay political movement, which I consider an evil component of the communist infiltration of the United States, bent on diluting the religious and family values that made this country great.  I have no opinion on, and zero interest in, an individual's orientation or his consensual sexual activity.  I'll let others lead those discussions.

UPDATED 7.2.14:

Did I call it, or what?

JP Morgan Chase is now asking employees if they are "an ally of the LGBT community."  Breitbart.

UPDATED and BUMPED 7.24.14:

"Voluntary" orientation reporting coming to New York!  Only gays to benefit.

CapitalNewYork:
New York State is launching a campaign to collect coordinated data on residents’ sexual orientation as part of a comprehensive effort to improve health and human services for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender New Yorkers, the state’s health department announced Wednesday.

It would be the first such statewide effort in the country, Dan O’Connell, director of the state Health Department’s AIDS Institute, said in an interview with Capital.

Eight state agencies will soon begin collecting the self-reported, voluntary data on LGBT people who use their services. The agencies are:
- the Department of Health, 
- Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, 
- Office for the Aging, 
- Office of Mental Health, 
- Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services, 
- Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, 
- Office of Children and Family Services and 
- Office for People with Developmental Disabilities.
If there was ever a time for a New Yorker to take advantage of the state's preference for homosexuals, this is the time.

Remember, you don't have to perform the act to receive the benefits.  

Start thinking like a liberal and cash in on jobs and preferences!


UPDATED 9.24.14:

Going gay works if you want a divorce.  Story at MoonBattery:
At least now you know how to keep from getting taken to the cleaners in divorce court. Just say you are dumping the mother of your children to pursue a life of sodomy, and the liberal establishment will back you to the hilt.

UPDATED and BUMPED 3.1.15:

Kommisar Al-Blogunov over at The People's Cube has expanded on this concept.  He offers a table that highlights the benefits of going gay over using race to get ahead:


His template for a Gay Card, rather than a Race Card, is a bit... off-putting.  I've never lost my appetite when someone played a race card.


BummiPuppe was kind enough to offer a proposed Terms of Service for these future Gay Cards:
This kard shall expire upon kompletion of the the "fundamental transformation" of Amerika. At that time, kard holders shall be subject to penalties, inkluding, but not limited to: discrimination, persekution, imprisonment, torture, forced labor, and death under the laws and direktives enakted and upheld by the Peoples Kongress, the Supreme Soviet, and Komrade Glorious Leader. Do not use this kard while kriticizing Komrade Glorious Leader and other high party officials, as this may increase your chances of premature death. Use at your own risk.
If you haven't bookmarked The People's Cube, you are missing out.  There is a lot of brainpower going to waste over there.  Always worth the visit.

The Future of Education. If We're Lucky.

Fred On Everything


I like the way Fred thinks:
After Microsoft agreed to accept scores instead of degrees, the dam broke. The rest is history. Fourteen years later,  thousands of professors were on food stamps, along with diversity counselors, featherbedding administrators, and football staffs.

Democrats and War

When they are in power, more people suffer.  Always has been.  Always will be.

From 90 Miles:



Some background on the end of the Vietnam War.  Did you know the Democrats let down our allies which led to over one million murdered?



Net Neutrality

The FCC enacted Net Neutrality yesterday.  The Internet is now a public utility.  Congress had some questions, but the FCC Commission Chairman, Tom Wheeler, knew an ambush on our entire system was planned and wisely declined.


Things may be slow here at Ushanka for a while.


Despite rumors to the contrary, the FCC has released the new rules.  Our people are reviewing the new rules for future blogging now, and are anxious to comply.


One new rule: we must now open every post with:  

"We celebrate our beloved [you may substitute: "dear"] leader of Oceania and the symbol of the Party."


We must direct two minutes of hate at EastAsia Eurasia for their recent sneak attack against our homeland.  I did this prior to submitting this post for approval.  I ask that you do so now.  Please look into your computer's camera when you unleash your hate for EastAsia Eurasia.  And... begin.


This nice portrait arrived with the new blogging rules.  I have carefully removed the protective packaging and have hung it in a prominent location within view of my computer's camera.  As recommended.


I look forward to a new Internet free from all the things that have plagued it in the past.


I condemn the new attempts by straight white males to build their own Internet in response to the dear leader's directive.  To them I say, "You already built one Internet.  And one is enough."


Some might say this is the end of free speech, but I suggest --REDACTED BY NEWSPEAK AGENT #433--.

Updated 5 minutes later...

BREAKING: We, along with our allies in Eurasia, are now at war with EastAsia.
