As part of the 50th Anniversary of “Star Trek” Hillary and the Democrats are going to remake the original Pilot episode.
Part of the original Star Trek series, The Menagerie tells the story of a Star Fleet captain whom a cunning alien race tricks into living with a hideous woman by creating an illusionary reality, in which they are both healthy, beautiful, and romantic.
The 2016 remake of this story by DNC Studios premiered at the Democratic Convention last night, with an updated plot, in which the same illusion expands to the entire audience: the viewers see the hideous woman, played by Hillary Clinton, as healthy, beautiful, and romantic, while her partner, played by Bill Clinton, has always seen her for what she really is but continues to play along out of habit and for the sake of convenience.
The Menagerie makes for a very good take on socialism itself. Spend the rest of your life in a zoo cage where all of your biological needs are taken care of – forgo living the life of a fully realized Man. Trade having a life for simply being alive in the animal sense. No self governance needed or allowed. Just life as an animal in the cage.
It is the temptation written about in ancient epics – give up your life Aeneid and you can stay here on my island with me for eternity… or you can go your way and live free like a Man but only be mortal.
And if you don’t bite into Eden’s Apple you’re a racist and a bigot!
Now you don’t want that Scarlet Letter on you do you?
From copblock.com: Recently there has been a rash of people who are fed up with the police state whom have begun using the only position of power they have, in their own workplace, to send a message to cops. While media and political pundits tout the myth of a War on Cops, there is a real battle taking place that is not violent, but the result of a new ideological momentum that thwarts the shackles of authoritarianism. The serfs, as it were, are rising up and refusing to participate. The refusal of service to LEO’s might be one of the most powerful trends yet to surface in the fight against the police state.
So it is of little surprise that those who have been forced into soulless service industry jobs by oligarchal economic paradigms for very little reward are starting to fight back.
Police represent not just a poor return on their forced investment, but are also the whip-bearers working on behalf of the economic powers that have created this endless cycle of consumption for profit. When the working poor pour out into the streets to fight the forces of their oppression, who will be there with rubber bullets, tear gas and paddy wagons…or worse? The police are not just more harsh on you the poorer that you are They are the thin blue line that protects the ruling class by keeping you in your place. Police are the Uncle Toms on the plantation of the modern working poor. They are the sellouts who serve to create a barrier between the few who have us all enslaved on some level.
Someone swallowed a Marxist dictionary…
MRC and Others: There seems to be a pattern these days. Just Google “police denied service at restaurant” and you’ll get hundreds of thousands of results. On July 14, an officer was denied service at Lucky Teriyaki in Sedro-Woolley, Wash. On July 16, an officer was denied service at a Taco Bell in Phenix City, Ala. On July 19, an officer was denied service at Genghis Grill in Dallas.
A Miramar police officer says he was refused service at a Sunoco service station and convenience store.
Sheriff Reichardt said four Skagit County deputies were finishing up lunch at Lucky’s Teriyaki and as two of them went to pay, the owner came out and asked that they not eat there any more. The deputies said the owner told them the customers didn’t like law enforcement there.
Not believing what he was hearing, Sheriff Reichardt asked his Chief Deputy to go speak to the owner and confirm the story. Sheriff Reichardt said not only did the owner repeat the request, but asked that the Sheriff’s Office spread the word to other law enforcement officers that they were also no long welcome.
Most recently, on Monday, a police officer was denied service in Alexandria, Va., when the chef refused to cook for the uniformed woman.
An Alabama police officer says workers at a fast food restaurant refused to serve him when he went through the drive-thru in his police cruiser. It happened at a Krystal restaurant in Irondale.
The police chief says the officer waited in at the drive-thru window for ten minutes. When no one helped him, the officer went inside to order. But the police chief says the workers who were inside walked away.
The good news is that in each case the owners apologized and pledged their support for the police while the offending employees were fired. But unfortunately, hatred of the police is affecting every aspect of their daily lives.
A Northern Virginia police officer was denied service at a Noodles & Co. in the latest episode of anti-cop animosity at restaurants across the country.
A woman working as a cook Monday night at an Alexandria location told the cashier loud enough for the officer to hear, “You better pull me off the line, because I’m not serving that,” officials with the Alexandria Police Department told WTTG-TV.
The cook motioned at the officer, and she and the cashier started to laugh. The officer, a woman wearing her uniform while standing in line behind a family, simply told them “I guess you don’t want my money,” and left.
She reported the encounter to her supervisor. Noodles & Co. executives announced Wednesday that they had fired two workers over the incident, and APD Chief Earl Cook paid a visit to the Duke St. location of the fast casual noodle chain.
“These are very difficult times right now in our relations with everyone,” Cook told the TV station. “And to have one of my officers treated in that manner unnecessarily, your first response is anger.”
Representatives for the company said in a statement that they “concluded the two team members in question acted inappropriately and we immediately terminated their employment.” Noodles & Co. executives also apologized “for the inexcusable actions of these individuals” to the officer who tried to eat at the restaurant Monday night, they said.
“Further, we want to extend our apologies to the entire Alexandria Police Department for the comments made by our team member,” Noodles & Co. executives said. “We have the utmost respect for law enforcement officials and value the relationship we have built with the local Alexandria Police Department over the years.”
The encounter followed a series of incidents shortly after the Dallas police ambush involving police officers who felt restaurant customers and staff treated them less than respectfully.
Back in Virginia, Noodles & Co. managers have agreed to post “Blue Lives Matter” stickers on the front of the business to show support for local officers. APD officials plan to hold a meeting with employees at the eatery, and they posted on Twitter after a user mentioned a possible boycott.
“Please, APD does not support any crime related to this unfortunate incident, or even a boycott,” APD officials said. “Take the high road!”
Organizers of the Black DNC Resistance March in Philadelphia were seen Wednesday on video segregating their protest by ordering white people to the back of the line.
“I need all white people to move to the back – make space because this is a Black Resistance March,” one of the leaders yelled from the bed of a pickup truck. “I need all white people to move to the back and make room for the black and brown brothers and sisters.”
Local media reports the march was organized by a coalition of neighborhood groups including Black Lives Matter Philadelphia.
A Fox News colleague who was reporting on the march said as much as half of the crowd was white.
“What if white people were in Ferguson,” one older white activist could be heard asking.
The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics.
The unidentified woman with the megaphone repeatedly told all Caucasian protesters to move.
“You will appropriately take your place in the back of this march because it will be truly led by the black and brown community and that’s it,” she roared.
The edict even applied to journalists covering the demonstration.
“Make room for black media,” she yelled. “White media get to the back. Black media come to the front.”
We apparently live in a nation where one’s place in a protest march is determined by the color of their skin and not the content of their character.
Later that evening, other demonstrators caused mayhem outside the DNC convention hall. Protestors dragged the Israeli flag through the streets – some of the flags were burned.
They even desecrated the Star-Spangled Banner.
Anti-American protesters threw Old Glory on the ground. They stomped on the flag and then set it ablaze.
I can’t even begin to imagine the anti-American hatred they harbor in their hearts. I can’t begin to comprehend their contempt for those who fought and died for the stars and stripes.
How incredibly sad it was to witness such hatred and racism on full display in the City of Brotherly Love.
“White people to the back — Black people to the front.”
I wonder what Rosa Parks would’ve done? (Todd Starnes)
One protester objecting to the racial segregation raised the Rosa Parks incident, but the angry woman did not respond.
Before the march set off, the woman told white people: ‘Take your rightful position, behind us.’
Standing in front of a black and red anarchist flag, she said: ‘I want to see all of the white folks at the back of the crowd.’
At the same time the woman was making the highly offensive comments, the mothers of several black men shot dead were addressing the convention.

This passage from Norris’ op-ed lays out the disastrous consequences of the GOP not uniting in this election:
“If Republicans cannot come together as a unified body, then we most assuredly will lose the presidential election, and, consequently, lose many congressional and Senate seats. The Democrats will then dominate Congress, as well as the presidency, for God only knows how long. And most grievous of all, justice seats on the U.S. Supreme Court will be filled by Hillary’s nominees, and their next decade of decisions will certainly dismantle or destroy what is left of our republic.”
Norris was not always a Trump supporter — early in the election and going as far back as the 2008 election, he supported Gov. Mike Huckabee.
“After Mike dropped out, I decided to wait until the people chose the candidate they wanted as their next president. Then, I would wholeheartedly support that candidate, which is now Donald Trump,” Norris wrote.
Norris explains what would likely happen if Republican don’t rally around Trump:
“If reluctant Republicans and other freedom-loving citizens don’t rally now behind GOP nominee Donald Trump, we could elect Hillary by default, or by those who merely stay at home on Election Day.”
For anyone that is concerned about Trump, consider Norris’ words here:
“You can always tell a person’s real character and personhood by those who closely surround him, especially if they’re family. Consider not only how poised and positive Trump’s adult children are but also how much they admire and respect their father. Even the liberal media, with all of its bias against Trump, cannot say a negative thing about how much his children love him, and how much he loves his children.
Do you think that type of family passion and values could really exist without the family’s members knowing Trump is the real deal?”
Now think about the people that Clinton surrounds herself with — if you can stomach it.
Norris quoted these famous words from Benjamin Franklin: “We must all hang together, or most assuredly we will all hang separately.”
Norris ends with a call to everyone to unite behind Trump:
“I would like to encourage every Republican – whether establishment, moderate, liberal or conservative – to come together and unite for the good of our country. Actually, I would like to see independents and Reagan Democrats join us as well to help “Make America Great Again.”
Think Secretary of State Debbie “Does Hillary” Wasserman-Schultz…
Secretary of Education: Bernie Sanders
Supreme Court Justice Loretta Lynch.
Then tell me voting for Trump is all that bad… (and I’m not his biggest fan either).
The liberal “Democratic” process was rigged like a Third Word Banana Republic Dictatorship!
You Sanders Voters were discounted, disrespected and disregarded.
Chanting “Hell No, DNC, we won’t vote for Hillary” and “This is what democracy looks like,” the marchers headed from City Hall down Broad Street, the main north-south artery that leads from the city center to the convention site about 4 miles away. (NBC10)
And the Liberals were playing upt he faked, paid for “violence” and “protests” at then RNC Convention last week when they have REAL protestors on their own door step.
Their corrupt Chairwoman resigns and immediately goes to the head of the Hillary Corruption Team.
And whose protecting them from the angry masses, but the Cops AND GUNS the Democrats set the angry masses on!!
The Irony is delicious. (and lost on Liberals BTW).
Bernie Sanders supporters with tape over their mouths reading ‘Silenced By DNC’ stand in the arena.
It’s just way to funny. Like most Liberal failures you just can’t make this stuff up.
20,000 freshly leaked emails reveal resentful disdain toward Sanders, as party favored Clinton long before any votes were cast
FEEL THE BURN!
In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination.
One email from DNC Deputy Communications Director Eric Walker to several DNC staffers cites two news articles showing Sanders leading in Rhode Island and the limited number of polling locations in the state: “If she outperforms this polling, the Bernie camp will go nuts and allege misconduct. They’ll probably complain regardless, actually.”
Instead of treating Sanders with impartiality, the DNC exhibits resentful disdain toward him and the thousands of disenfranchised voters he could have brought into the party.
“Wondering if there’s a good Bernie narrative for a story, which is that Bernie never ever had his act together, that his campaign was a mess,” wrote DNC Deputy Communications Director Mark Paustenbach to DNC Communications Director Luis Miranda, in response to backlash over DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz shutting off the Sanders campaign’s access to voter database files.
Another chain reveals MSNBC’s Chuck Todd and DNC staff members discussing how to discredit MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski’s call for Wasserman Schultz to resign.
Most of the emails released come from seven prominent DNC staff members: senior adviser Andrew Wright, national finance director Jordon Kaplan, finance chief of staff Scott Comer, Northern California finance director Robert Stowe, finance director of data and strategic initiatives Daniel Parrish, finance director Allen Zachary and Miranda.
The release provides further evidence the DNC broke its own charter violations by favoring Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee, long before any votes were cast.
Over the past several weeks, Guccifer 2.0 released several internal memos showing DNC staff strategizing to make Clinton the presidential nominee—as early as March 2015. In June 2016, Florida-based law firm, Beck & Lee, filed a class action lawsuit against Wasserman Schultz and the DNC based on the revelations from these leaked files.
Other emails show DNC staff in damage control over allegations from the Sanders campaign, when a report—corroborated by a Politico—revealed the DNC’s joint fundraising committee with the Clinton campaign was laundering money to the Clinton campaign instead of fundraising for down-ticket Democrats. Regardless of the fundraising tactics, because both major campaigns didn’t agree to use the joint fundraising committee super-PAC with the DNC, the DNC should have recused itself from participating with just the Clinton campaign.
The Wikileaks and Guccifer 2.0 leaks are the perfect end to a Democratic primary that undermined democracy at every possible opportunity while maintaining plausible deniability.
The party’s rules, including the use of super delegates—who disproportionately endorsed Clinton before the primaries began—are intended to provide the Democratic Party leverage over the election process. Throughout the primaries, decisions were made by DNC officials to help Clinton build and maintain a lead over Sanders.
More votes were cast for Clinton, but they were cast at the behest of a Democratic Party that downplayed her shortfalls to the extent that Sanders not only had to run against Clinton but also against the entire Democratic Establishment. Heading into the Democratic National Convention, voters are beginning to understand that their voices are of little concern to the leadership. (Observer)
Naturally, The DNC doesn’t take responsibility for it, even though Debbie Does Hillary resigned as a sacrificial fake out.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has accused Russia of meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying its hackers stole Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails and released them to foment disunity in the party and aid Donald Trump. (From Hillary’s Private Server maybe? )
Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, said on Sunday that “experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole these emails, [and are] releasing these emails for the purpose of helping Donald Trump”.
“I don’t think it’s coincidental that these emails are being released on the eve of our convention here,” he told CNN’s State of the Union, alluding to the party’s four-day exercise in unification which is set to take place this week in Philadelphia.
“This isn’t my assertion,” Mook said. “This is what experts are telling us.”
In a statement, the Clinton campaign repeated the accusation: “This is further evidence the Russian government is trying to influence the outcome of the election.” (UK Guardian)
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and The Constitution entitle them, an indecent disrespect to the opinions of mankind requires
that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that some are more equal than others, that they are endowed by their Government with Rights granted by them, that among these are Diversity, Slavery and the pursuit of Control both physical and mental–That to secure these rights, Governments are controlled among Man, deriving their unjust powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Control, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should be changed for acceptable and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute
Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to consecreate for all time such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these people;and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of The United States of America is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States and We The People, of these United States, willingly and with great enthusiasm do swear our fealty and dedicate our children to this most just act.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for more in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated victory. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.And we now celebrate that consecration. For we are not a free people. We are a fair people. A Diverse People. We are Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety and secure Social Justice for all.
That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Enslaved and Dependent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the Constitution, and that all political connection between them and the United States of America, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Enslaved and Dependent States, they have full Power to levy Privilege, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Socialism, and to do all other Acts and Things which
Dependent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Government Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Derek Hunter: Do you want to be punched in the face or the gut? Would you rather be pushed down a flight of stairs or thrown off a garage? Would you rather vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?
Most Americans have decided who they are voting for, but those who haven’t must wonder if they’re trapped between an island of poisonous snakes and an ocean of sharks when it comes to their choice for president.
Hillary Clinton is a corrupt, power-mad, money-hungry, career climber willing to do or say anything to obtain what she wants. She sells access, influence and anything not nailed down, as long as there’s nothing in writing. She’ll trample anyone, destroy anyone, forsake anyone to win.
Donald Trump is a blowhard narcissist with no core values or principles in the political arena. A man who buys influence and funds anyone if it serves his purposes at the moment. He’s easily distracted and holds a grudge long after victory.
Hillary is married to a serial philanderer; Trump is a serial philanderer. The only difference is Trump’s conquests were willing; some of Bill Clinton’s weren’t.
Hillary smeared and destroyed the lives of women her husband used; Trump dated or married them.
Neither are moral people.
One would ruin the country by continuing the failed progressive policies and animosity toward the Constitution of the past eight years; the other would ruin the country with protectionist economics and constitutional ignorance.
Trump just accepted the Republican nomination in Cleveland –a festive event which should have launched his general election bid and turned the focus to Clinton and the difference between their visions for the future. Instead, less than 12 hours after accepting the nod, he focused on Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, taking petty swipes and rehashing smears on his family.
If Donald Trump would learn to ignore his instincts when it comes to settling scores with other Republicans, he could win this thing. But he’s his own worst enemy. You don’t curse at the people in the rear view mirror; you go after the battle ahead.
Yet Trump simply seems incapable of moving past anything. Winning wasn’t enough, accepting the nomination wasn’t enough. Trump lied about Cruz’s speech, saying the senator had ad libbed lines not in the submitted text. But all the words Cruz spoke were in the script and on the teleprompter.
So why tell such an easily disprovable lie about someone you’ve spent that last six months referring to as ‘Lying Ted?’
Hillary, on the other hand, lies not only about things that matter, such as emails and classified material, she also has a history of lying about things that don’t matter. Claiming to have landed in Bosnia under sniper fire, recounting in specific detail how she had to run from the tarmac at the airport, knowing there was video of her smiling, greeted by children and accompanied by her own daughter. Recounting the story of how she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mt. Everest, even though she was born long before he had set foot on the mountain or become famous.
She’s so weak a candidate that even though she served as secretary of state, she had to choose a running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., who could shore up her foreign policy credentials. She couldn’t even trust her longtime bagman and now-governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, to deliver his purple state.
Both candidates inspire fierce loyalty in their die-hard supporters, but neither has demonstrated the ability to reach beyond it. Hillary is a known commodity – the Edsel of candidates – and there’s no polishing that mess. The undecideds have decided they can only vote for her by voting against someone else.
Donald Trump is that someone else. He’s known – he’s been a celebrity since the 1980s – but his political beliefs were (and to a large extent remain a) mystery. The country spent a week trying to unravel that mystery, then the next day he focuses on attacking someone he’d already beaten. Four days of forward-looking talk undone by an obsession on unimportance.
If you told me both were trying to lose, I’d be inclined to believe you.
Barring a major change by one of these two people, November could see extremely low turnout as this election devolves fully from a battle for the future to a race to be the least unpopular.
