Is Trump Really A Russian Agent? (Part 2)

Continuation of Part 1:

  • If Russia wanted to ruin America, they would have hacked Hillary into office.

Be it on the domestic front, or in regards to foreign policy, I claim that Trump’s (and by extension Republican) policies are designed to increase United States’ wealth, security and ability to expanse Western values throughout the world.

Let’s do the following exercise – imagine you are a country that hates America and you want to destroy it. Naturally, you make friends with its bitter enemies, foment every situation that can weaken America and drain its money, and attempt to swing public opinion regarding its image on all diplomatic fronts, all the while rapidly modernizing your own military in case the aforementioned results in inevitable confrontation. Now, there are two presidential candidates, (no names necessary, let’s minimize our bias) one of whom has repeatedly sworn that strengthening the military – increasing active duty personnel, building new aircraft carriers, modernizing nuclear arsenal, strengthening ties with proven American allies and acting against its enemies – is one of his goals while the other one states that his national security priorities include climate change, women’s empowerment, eliminating income inequality and fighting discrimination as well as continuing the predecessor’s diplomatic approach, which constituted appeasement of America’s bitter enemies at all costs.  Which candidate would you rather win? Democrats want us to believe that given these options, an American adversary would go out of its way to have the latter candidate lose. Because G-d forbid they spend billions of dollars constructing bathrooms for every of the 31 genders (as of 2016) and battle racial discrimination in the country where there already are “Special taskforces on Native American inclusivity” in almost every university, or even worse, what if they bankroll the entire world’s transition to cleaner production and renewable energy as part of their well thought out battle strategy against climate change! After all, Obama was really successful with that and thanks to his majestic diplomatic skills he managed to convince many countries to take American money and promise to build something in the next 5 to 10 years. Bravo indeed!

But I digress…

Let’s compare the immigration policy of these two candidates. One wants to have a secure border, accountability, legal consequences for those who violate American laws and prevent an influx of people lying about their true situation and abusing the refugee status (especially from countries linked to strong terrorism support among the population). The other is leaning towards open borders (come over without being checked), rewarding with residency those who violated American immigration and taxation laws, and shipping over thousands of people from war-ridden and terrorism rampant regions, whose identities can’t be verified due to a lack of any data, especially when terrorist groups have threatened numerous times to send over their affiliates to commit horrible acts on American soil! Again, Democrats want us to believe that bitter rivals of America would go out of their way to have the latter candidate lose! Are you damn serious?

Finally let’s compare the economic policies of these candidates. One wants to lower taxes for those who produce wealth, convince big companies to bring their factories back to the US, reduce welfare handouts to able adults and push them toward finding work, stop wasting money on organizations that do nothing for America’s benefit (such as UNESCO, among many others). The other wants to increase taxes on the rich (read “those who produce wealth”) and use the money to decrease inequality (read “increase welfare handouts”) as well as increase America’s important role in solving the world’s problems” (read “mindlessly bankrolling other countries and organizations”). To anyone who is remotely familiar with the history of Detroit, the most consistently Democratic voting city in the US – a once prosperous automotive capital of America with 1.6 million inhabitants, where the policies of taking from the rich and giving to the poor have been consistently implemented for the  past 50 years, but now is a horror city with 707 thousand inhabitants, the highest murder rate in the United States, 70 thousand abandoned houses and where roughly half of the adult population is functionally illiterate. The populist trash regarding “taking from the rich and redistributing it among the poor” sounds like a threat of destruction! And again, Democrats want us to believe that America’s rivals want the latter candidate to lose! Are they for real? Sadly, they are.

  • Facebook and Twitter influence fragile American minds.

It is hard to overestimate how much consolidated effort went (and still goes) into investigating the alleged advantage President Trump gained as a result of Russian activity on Facebook and Twitter. There is almost no human left in this country who hasn’t heard about how Russian posts tricked innocent, gullible masses into voting Trump into office with their “fake news.” Yes, liberals complain about fake news… oh the irony. Anyhow, this wave of media hysteria completely engulfed the minds of every societal strata and persisted as the hottest conversation topic for months in a row. The left has spent millions upon millions upon many more millions of dollars following every possible lead in their pursuit of explaining how a 70-30 sure-to-win candidate of favorable gender – who also was a continuator of the Kenyan demigod’s legacy – could lose, if not as a result of an elaborate scam by a foreign power! Let’s see what facts these blinded-by-rage investigators have uncovered and how they kindly interpret them for us.

The progressive heroes of investigative journalism have discovered the existence of so-called “Kremlin bots” – a group of people whose work is to post pro-Putin and anti-anti-Putin commentaries on the Russian internet as well as dispense “dislikes” to the opposition’s YouTube videos to prevent them from getting onto the “Trending” list.  This investigative breakthrough is indeed commendable, and its merits are only slightly diminished by the fact that every single Russian with internet access knew about their existence since 2014, they are discussed on radio shows over there on a daily basis, and there is sufficient information regarding their activities to provide material for several PhD dissertations.

So, on the 30th of October 2016, The New York Times comes out with yet another scary article with a catchy title, “Russian Influence Reached 126 Million Through Facebook Alone,” where respected readers are notified that during the election season these “Kremlin bots” posted a mindboggling 80,000 pieces of content on American Facebook pages and that some other group attempted to infiltrate accounts of politicians. Just follow the narrative – Trump election fraud, alleged Russian influence, Russian-paid employees posting thousands of pieces of content, Hillary’s email breach and Russian military hackers, hundreds of millions of people influenced as a result… Wow, that sounds impressive, right?! Even better is that all the aforementioned is easily seen in the name of the article and topic sentences of its paragraphs without any need to read further – much less to research the matter! What for? You are busy people, after all, and New York Times correspondents kindly chewed everything for you already… better spend your time doing something productive like protesting the Trump/Pence regime somewhere, or taking the knee in some public place.

The truth is, of course, that this narrative is false and is created exclusively for the propagandistic purpose of feeding the hatred of President Trump. Unlike Russian state media, Iranian News Agency or Al Jazeera, this New York Times article doesn’t present the reader with outright outrageous lies, but rather alludes to necessary conclusions which in truth do not necessarily follow out of presented facts. Articles such as this often contain within them truthful information capable of refuting the proclaimed narrative, but are usually present only for the sake of plausible deniability if accusations of ill intent are ever to come up.  This technique does not work on a careful reader, but it works very well on masses who are thirsty for justification of their “righteous hate,” people who are not capable of analyzing material themselves – and are therefore used to relying on someone else to do this work for them – and people who simply do not read beyond the headlines. Believe me, these categories cover a pretty large chunk of leftist electorate. Now let’s actually look at this article.

There is absolutely nothing implicating President Trump in the fact that 80,000 messages were produced by a Kremlin-affiliated service. First of all, it was established that the majority of those messages had absolutely nothing to do with praising Trump. Truth is that they were written under the guise of Black Lives Matter activists aimed at strengthening the protest movement in hopes to cause havoc, damage, and generate a persistent flammable internal conflict within the US. In other words, they were as anti-Republican as it gets. Russian linked people were simply trying to maximize the damage to the US utilizing existent social unrest, which is consistent with the hypothesis we put forth in Part 1 of this blog. They also posted under the guise of hardline American nationalists, further aggravating those who were deluded enough to perceive that they live in a country with racist and brutal police who would indiscriminately shoot innocent, unarmed, and harmless blacks in the middle of the day for the heck of it, provoking them into further destructive actions and vandalism. The New York times conveniently forgot to mention this.

80,000 posts? Billions of posts are created on Facebook every single day. Between 2015 and 2017 Facebook saw 11 trillion – that’s 11,000,000,000,000, posts – of which 80,000 constitutes 0.00000073%. To their credit, the 11 trillion number was present in the article, but the insignificance of 80 thousand compared to it wasn’t sufficiently emphasized. Do you think this Russian influence would seem less threatening if, instead of the 80,000 number, a 0.00000073% was used? But their goal is to increase the hysteria of their target audience; therefore, 80,000 is much more preferable.

I won’t even go deep into debunking the 126 million number that the article uses in its title and highlights in bold letters. This number is so far from the actual number of people who saw any of the Russian posts that it’s just sad. These people tell us that 0.00000073% of total posts reached (and influenced!!!) roughly every third American. The statistical monstrosity of an assumption that this article happily transmits to its “respected readers” of course does not mention how the 126 million number was calculated. You see, if such a post appeared in a certain feed, then the number of visitors to that feed were counted as those who viewed the post; if someone reposted such a post, all friends and those who had access to that person’s wall were counted as those who viewed it; if such a post was placed on a public wall or some other area with public access, then all those who accessed that space were counted as those who viewed this post; if the same group of people read the post numerous times, they were counted as distinct people who viewed the post for every time they read it. Given that information, do you start understanding how far the 126 million number actually is from the real count? This journalism and their attempt to present impartiality is laughable, to say the least…

 

To conclude, there is so much more to be said about why the notion that President Trump’s election was in part due to Russia’s interference, but the scope of angles through which this question can be analyzed by far exceeds the appropriate length of this blog. You don’t need it either. Those who are to approach this question with due impartiality will easily be able to figure everything out for themselves. One thing is clear, however – the Left, in their pursuit of a post-modernist, Marxist vision of this country’s future, will utilize every shred of nonsense at their disposal to damage the President, his supporters, and everyone who does not want to be complacent with their impositions of suicidal policies onto the Western world. But we are not going to surrender, instead we will counter attack on every front! We’ll happily talk about how in the upcoming blogs.

Thank you kindly for your time and interest.

Is Trump really a Russian agent? (Part 1)

Personally, I remember the 2016 presidential elections as one of the most joyous days I lived through. Together with millions of Americans, my wife and I experienced the miracle of victory “against all odds” perhaps similar to those experienced by Swedes following the battle of Narva, or even like the Jews after the Maccabees defeated the Greeks and recaptured Jerusalem. Republicans unlike Jews, however, did not proclaim a holiday commemorating regaining control of the White House, and instead went on with their lives; Democrats, on the other hand, did not choose the path of withdrawal, refusing to accept the loss and vouching the imminence of soon-to-come revenge.

Their disbelief in the outcome is only natural – after all, the predictions of Trump’s embarrassing defeat were heard from the tribunes of the absolute majority of news programs, late night TV-shows, newspapers, and, oh boy, university pundits. Polls averaging 70 percent in favor of Mrs. Clinton and endorsements of her “progressive views that were meant to keep America on the right path,” paralleled with numerous accusations and condemnations of Trump, were shoved into people’s heads with great intensity and force. It is as if everything around me yelled, “Do not go to the polls! Do not waste your time! It’s a done deal. There is no chance of victory…” There was a problem with such an approach, however, and if the Left was not too busy beating the already emaciated public image of Trump, they might have come across a phrase from the well-known book of Proverbs that states “Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, and a stone will come back on him who starts it rolling.” That is exactly what happened – instead of Trump voters not going to the polls it was Hillary voters who didn’t! Because why would they? “What’s the risk of losing such a clear cut, one-sided race, if I won’t vote?” they thought. On the other hand, voting for Trump served two purposes – even if we did not necessarily expect victory, even if Trump was not our most preferable pick from among all Republican candidates, we nevertheless had to vote for him as in the ultimate way of saying “NOT IN MY NAME!” to the plans of continuing the socialist kumbaya after 8 painful and disastrous Obama years!

The result is, of course, known to everyone, but I cannot miss the opportunity to once again pronounce this wonderful statement – on Tuesday, November 8th, 2016 Donald J Trump won the presidential elections. The moans of the Left ravaged throughout the country. The invisible, but dense, walls of “safe space” were immediately erected across schools, college campuses and “socially-responsible” workplaces, where disillusioned and gentle-souled individuals began to pour their emotions out and “voice their concerns and fears” in an attempt to comprehend such an outcome. It was amusing to watch how those hypocrites organized such gatherings and attempted to present them as something apolitical and as a natural concern for the feelings of people who might have gotten upset! I dare you to tell me that emergency vigils and sermons for “peace and acceptance” and for the “wellbeing of the country” together with all those “safe space” dialogues would have been held if Hillary were to win! These very people would have arrived dancing in the morning after the election, popping champagne and cracking jokes about how Trump with his deplorable supporters even dared to run, while clearly upset people would have been a target of laughs and irony for weeks to come! Remember the 2012 Election? Do you remember any “safe spaces” or community sermons after it? Exactly! Lord have mercy on anyone who would have tried arranging any of the aforementioned activities, not to mention the charges and labels they would have received as a result!!! This is just so pathetically low and transparent…

But you know what’s even lower? The excuses Democrats started to come up with to justify their defeat. Among them one stands out particularly strong – Russian Government won the elections for Trump because Trump is Putin’s marionet and wants to destroy America (I feel bad for singling out this very claim, as there are many more accusations just as comical as this one and maybe someday I will write about them as well…). This nonsense received serious traction and many, many, many millions of dollars have already been spent on it, because of it and in defense against it.

It would require an insane amount of time to cover this topic in its entirety and with the thoroughness it necessitates, but I won’t do it that way. This is just a blog, I do not claim to be an investigative researcher and I do not even think people visiting this page need such an extensive analysis, but everything I write here can be checked/further researched on your own based on the vector of thought development I am going to leave on these pages. If any of you really want certain concepts of this blog entry to be developed further, or have additional questions, or require links that you can’t find on your own, then please write in the comment section at the end of the page and I will try to satisfy your demands.

To begin with, it is important to note that the Russian interference did take place. There are many facts that attest to that, among them one is particularly intriguing – that those who hacked Democratic emails worked from 9am to 5pm Moscow time, taking a break during Russian military holidays. The goal of the Russian interference, however, was not to elect Trump, but to cause destabilization and damage to a complicated mechanism of interaction between the media and government, among others. The success of this operation is to be measured by the degree to which the American media compromised themselves and how much damage they caused, not to Trump, but to the very institution of the American presidency. With that said, allow me to enumerate some reasons as to why the claim that Russians have interfered with the election process on behalf of Trump is a load of shit, pardon me my French.

  • By no means is Trump friendly to Russia.

During the Obama presidency, when Russian fighter jets were doing barrel rolls over American reconnaissance planes in international waters and were flying at a very dangerously low altitude imitating a bomb run over American ships, Trump’s position was to shoot them down if they perform these stunts again. His decisiveness to act harshly against Putin’s interests was clearly displayed in April 2017 when an order to bomb Al Shayrat airfield with tomahawk missiles was carried out. Not only was that action bluntly directed against Syrian’s Assad forces, who were directly supported by the Kremlin, the very Russian forces were present at that base at the time of the assault, albeit they were preemptively warned about it through the established channels of communication between militaries. President Trump was also consistent in ramping up sanctions policy against the Kremlin, which increasingly targeted key infrastructures of Russia, such as mining and banking operations.

  • Trump’s election is consistent with the results of Congressional and Senatorial elections throughout the country.

It would have at least been plausible to suggest that Trump’s election was somehow rigged, hacked, or pushed through an interference if it was contrary to political trends across the United States. If, for example, elections to Congress or Senate showed pronounced Democratic victories and, all of a sudden, despite these trends, Trump were to pull out a surprise win, then it would have given us some food for thought. The fact is, that Trump’s victory correlated perfectly with political results across the country. 2016 United States House of Representatives elections ended up with Republicans preserving their majority and resulted in 241-194 majority in their favor. The Republican Party easily held the chamber, as was predicted. The same is true regarding the United States Senate elections, where Republicans retained control, with only two incumbents losing their seats to Democrats.

So, did Russians hack those elections too? To say that it’s very highly implausible is a serious understatement. One group’s targeted interference with such a vast number of polling stations and somehow influencing them is virtually impossible for several reasons. Therefore, Trump’s election is not a stand out event, but a proven continuation of a nationwide trend.

  • The hacking of Clinton’s email could not have achieved anything beneficial.

Ever since Watergate there is one thing every American politician knows full well – if the privacy of someone’s private information got violated (wiretapped, or hacked for that matter) then such an event is very likely to end up with an impeachment of the one who orchestrated the violation. The risk of hacking rival presidential candidate’s email is simply not worth it! What exactly was meant to be found there? Granted, I have no doubt that Hillary Clinton is corrupt and has a lot to hide – the Clinton fund, details of the plutonium deal with Russia, and even the 3 salaries of her aide Huma Abedin, among others are all evidences of gross corruption and crookedness, but would anyone really expect her to hold compromising information in her email? This just sounds preposterous! The fact that her email was hacked into did not damage her even the slightest bit, but instead served to her benefit, as she could conveniently appear as a victim and cause a lot more dirt to be dumped daily on Trump ever since that incident. The “unbiased” American media was quick to swallow this narrative and was very thankful for the opportunity to blame Trump for that event, in pursuance of the following “logical” construct:

Clinton’s email was hacked. Trump does not like Hillary and he is her opponent. Therefore, Trump hacked Hillary.

One does not even need to be familiar with logic as a subject to demolish this reasoning, but millions of people are conveniently convinced in its accuracy.  But knowing the democratic electorate, I am surprised they are not accusing him of using kidnapped black babies as bricks for his tower… at least not yet.

The Politics Of Art - ConservaTEEve

Every time a new design came out, we would spend a considerable amount of time contemplating what to write in the space allocated for the design’s description. The task of condensing the vast number of thoughts, intertwined ideas, and allusions that are behind almost every design of ours in one paragraph is not that simple. As a result, no matter how well worded, or suitable a shirt’s description ends up being, it never envelops everything we want to say on the matter. Now, with the help of the blog, we can get a little closer to that goal.

Additionally, when we sell our products at various events, I often meet many interesting people with whom I have lengthy, enriching conversations. What tends to start as political chit chat more often than not shifts into a sharing of personal experiences and a projection of mutual hopes for the future of this great country. I cannot overstate how much food for thought and motivation these people have given me! I used to share some of them with my friends and family, but I always felt a bit disappointed that I had no way of sharing their unique thoughts and stories with a larger audience. Hopefully, this blog will help me with that goal as well.

Last but not least, I have always said that we are not a just another politically angled printing company! We take pride in being a company that produces content for sophisticated people –ones who value the originality of a design, unique artwork, quality and faithfulness to expressed political convictions in every minute detail of how the business is run. Our products have substance and a soul. Our products are a shield for those who are subjected to unjust treatment in their respective environments due to their politics. Our products are a sword to battle the nauseating “Liberal” self-righteousness. Our products are a torch so that the young generation will see that decent, hard-working and smart Americans DO exist on the Right – which is so contrary to the narrative that is being rubbed into their heads day in and day out since early middle-school, if not earlier.

We know that there are way too many of those who reproduce internet memes or someone else’s jokes or crudely crop and paste a face onto a different body, add a word of insult or a profanity, print it on cheap outsourced material and, voila, a “brand new right-wing shirt” is ready for sale. Granted, there is clientele for that market niche, but such an approach, besides being an obvious classless sham not only doesn’t benefit anyone whom it claims to “support,” but instead effectively harms them! How? It’s a large topic in itself, about which I promise to talk at length in one of our upcoming blog entries.

To conclude there are many issues to talk about. And now we have a platform where to do it!
