Violence! But There Is None.

Even the Headline Lies

(Arizonans may have seen this item)

The lamestream media told you:


The gathering in Phoenix was peaceful until the end when rioting broke out and there was widespread violence. Police had to use tear gas, pepper spray, pepper balls and rubber bullets to disburse the mob.

 
 
 
 

WHAT VIOLENCE?

Winner: The End of Credibility Award.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In the most flagrant display of bizarre propaganda in recent memory, a front page mainstream newspaper proclaims violence, but shows a totally peaceful scene with one demonstrator. Because there was little else.

A line of battle ready shock troops, identities hidden, aligned in combat formation stand guard, as absolutely nothing is happening. The disjoint between headline and image must have appealed to someone up there in those isolated halls.

The Uninvited Ombudsman carefully screened footage from every major “news” outlet, and despite vigorous editing and artful presentation, the only thing remotely resembling violence was police action against the assembled public.
 
Kicking a single canister of riot gas back at its source is not deemed violence for the purpose of this report. That scene, repeated on screens ad nauseum, including the guy folding from a rubber-bullet shot to the groin, is not proof of violence or justification for any of the phony reports that followed.

Friends who were there reported an unruly angry, antagonistic mob of anti-Trumpers when they exited the rally. Police did the right thing, keeping the sides separated, across the streets, with barricades. That's what police in other cities are supposed to do, but frequently do not, yet they retain their jobs for reasons that were unclear at press time.

Although claims of tossed empty water bottles were received during the 108-degree day, police action was unquestionably violent, and demonstrators and participants from many sides had no choice but to disburse. Anti-Trump protesters did create a ruckus at one point. These people and the belligerent crowd associated with them were deemed “peace activists” by Reuters, who withdrew the false characterization after a withering storm of rebuke. According to leading experts, such misleading references are institutional.

A picture speaks 1,000 words. Although MSNBC at one point referred in passing to "tens of thousands" of demonstrators, there were hundreds, which grew eventually to perhaps just more than that. This was the thickest crowd shot I could capture:
 

The full-size image allows head counts, pretty close. It's in the hundreds. This
image from TV during daylight, mid event. Night crowds were hard to gauge.
This was the main gathering spot, near the entrance, people flowed to here.

Climate Change Noise Missing

Public Baffled, Scientists Not So Much


The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

A near total lack of reports linking climate change to Hurricane Harvey (can you remember back that far?) has no environmentalists shouting about censorship or biased reporting.

This may be due to the fact that the “green” movement has learned the public doesn’t believe linking individual weather events to master environmental edicts qualifies as science, or that the case for climate change, also called global warming, climate disruption, carbon footprint and eco terrorism -- may have hockey-stick sized holes. (Recent hurricanes have had global alarmism shouting.)

A recently published report (Science News, Vol. 191, No. 9, p. 19) notes, “The world’s more than 100 million lakes are often overlooked in climate simulations. That’s surprising, because lakes are far easier to measure than oceans.” After a landmark study was published in 2015, scientists were shocked to find, “the picture is far more complicated,” than they expected. Although lakes experienced the same weather, some warmed faster, or slower, for reasons they could not explain or understand. “Such variability makes it hard to pin down what to expect in the future,” according to an aquatic biologist at Washington State U.

It seems that climate changes, because that’s what climate does. Human understanding of the phenomena is in its infancy, and calls for massive upheaval of humanity, to avoid massive upheaval of humanity, may be premature. Especially since some of the world's largest industrialists are excluded from current plans (communist China, India, more), and the developed world tasked with the invented burdens. Control of the purse strings and people on the receiving end of life style changes requires more care and thought that it may have received previously, according to leading experts. Changing our climate, if this is even possible, should not be handled with the alacrity we are all-of-a-sudden using to replace our monuments, according to leading experts.

Democrats Arrested, But Why?

Illegal Immigration Reporting Totally Twisted

No wonder people are misled.

The lamestream media told you:


“U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and two other Democratic members of Congress were arrested as they led immigration-related protests outside Trump Tower on Tuesday.

“The eight-term Arizona Democrat has been an outspoken critic of the Trump administration's crackdown on undocumented immigrants and its decision to end an executive action by former President Barack Obama that temporarily protected ‘dreamers’ from removal proceedings...”
 
http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/arizona/2017/09/19/rep-raul-grijalva-arrested-while-protesting-outside-trump-tower-immigration/681895001/


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:


Maintaining its official narrative, instead of reporting straight facts, AZCentral.com could have more accurately reported:

“U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and two other Democratic members of Congress were arrested blocking Manhattan traffic in an immigration-related protest outside Trump Tower on Tuesday.

“The Arizona Democrat, among the most far-left-leaning members of Congress, now in his eighth term, has been an outspoken critic of the Trump administration's effort to stop the massive illegal entry of people sneaking undetected across the nation’s southern border. He objects to Trump’s decision to end an unconstitutional executive action by former President Barack Obama, which created the current crisis of so-called ‘dreamers.’ Congress abdicated its check-and-balance duty, ignoring the illegal order when it was mandated.

“The metaphorical ‘dreamers’ are now at the center of deportation proceedings for their lack of legal status to be present in the country.”

The Washington Post had a slightly different take, calling it: “a protest of President Trump’s decision to end legal protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants.” That would more accurately read: “...to remove hundreds of thousands of adults in the country illegally under Obama’s unconstitutional action while in office.” In a now common propaganda tactic, the Post calls the illegal immigrants “immigrants.”

In predictable lockstep, CNN reported Grijalva’s arrest as part of, “a demonstration in support of immigrants,” without mentioning these are illegal immigrants. CNN omitted mention of Obama’s illegal action or these people’s secret entry into America past border guards. They go on to say the program, “was put in place under President Barack Obama” without mentioning anything about the lack of authority to do so, which has created this political crisis. A quick survey of other mainstream reports is unsurprisingly similar. No one breaks the mold.

If the illegal and unconstitutional nature of the former president’s program, and the sneak-entry across our border was mentioned, even if not prominently, the entire sense of the public conversation would change. National media is aware of this, as you are now.

Orders Issued to Disarm... Everyone?

Hurricane Irma Gun Grab -- The Truth

Front Page "Error" and Rumor Gone Wild


USA Today doesn't even bother lying carefully any longer.
Read the caption. 
Go ahead. I'll wait.
 
They're not putting up shutters. They're boarding up the windows. Sure, it's a small point. But it's blatant and obvious. The media no longer even cares about accuracy, even when it's front and center. The frequent excuse is they fudge to save space. Board up windows has fewer characters, and would be correct, too. USA Today. Sep. 9, 2017. Page One.
 

The lamestream media told you:

Non-stop coverage of the storm -- it's coming! it's coming!, it's here!, it's going!, it's gone!, preempting every other bit of news for days -- days -- even the Russian takeover of Donald Trump's brain, and his tax returns (forgot about those, didn't you).

Only Tucker Carlson questioned the governor of the Virgin Islands about it, live on FOX News, who seemed to have ordered every gun on the islands confiscated by the National Guard. Forty Google listings deep and not one other lamestream media outlet was on the subject -- but every gun and new-media source was all over it.

Publicly posted, click for a full-size image of the gun-seizure order:

VI Mapp's Gun Grab Order


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

There’s more to it than that.

Only the new-media and gun media really carried the story, because it was so “minor.” Governor Kenneth Mapp of the U.S. Virgin Islands, a U.S. territory protected by the National Guard, issued an order to confiscate the public’s guns and ammo before hurricane Irma arrived in early Sep. 2017. The “officials” down there know who has what, because all guns are registered -- the holy grail of the anti-gun-rights community worldwide.

Gun folks went bonkers. The order actually said the troops could confiscate basically anything, if they needed it for their purposes. It was not a blanket order to go door-to-door to disarm the public. But it was sloppy, and could have been read that way. In statutes enacted in 1972 they pretty much gave themselves that authority, and those “laws” should have been quickly voided as unconstitutional. They weren’t. That’s how this sort of power is stolen, bit by bit, without notice.

Is Anti-Semitism Increasing?

It Doesn't Matter, It Exists, Wha Choo Gonna Do?

The lamestream media told you:


"If Trump's not a white supremacist, he does a good impression."
-Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/if-trumps-not-a-white-supremacist-he-does-a-good-impression/2017/09/25/f070e250-a22b-11e7-b14f-f41773cd5a14_story.html?utm_term=.2c032ffcaa39

“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”

...and Trump is “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime,” that he hired and courted white supremacists, that “His rise is a direct result of white supremacy,” that “if he were not white, he never would have been elected.” ... and the Republican Party “has done nothing but endorse/promote white supremacy.”

The New York Times, conveniently attributed to a string a tweets by ESPN host Jemele Hill, so they can't be blamed for saying it themselves. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/18/opinion/trump-white-supremacist.html?mcubz=1

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

This group keeps hitting the nail on the head --
Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org
"You don't have to be Jewish to fight by our side."

While the "news" media, the pundits, the pros and antis, reps and dems,
TV and radio guys argue whether Trump is bringing out the crazies or
they're bringing out each other, what matters is what to do about them.
They're armed, dangerous, dedicated to trouble, bedlam, chaos and death.

If we weren't so mired in marxist/socialist propaganda this would be obvious --

“RISE IN ANTI-SEMISTISM”
JPFO Official Statement:



“If anything should motivate you to learn about your precious American right to keep and bear arms and to use your freedom to arm yourself, the current dramatic rise in anti-Semitism is it. If you don’t understand that, shame on you, and you deserve what you get. History is repeating itself. Wake up children. Get armed, get trained, don’t become a victim. Yes, our position is more people properly armed. What is the anti-Semite’s position?”

This highly principled position deserves your support. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org They have a lot of mottos. They fight with the moral imperative of survivors.

DESTROY THIS STATUE!

A statue that really needs removal.
 

UNITED NATIONS PLAZA, NEW YORK CITY.    Don't worry, it's small.

An insult, not just offensive, to the Bill of Rights!
It has no place on American soil.
"Denial of rights guaranteed to the people by the U.S. Constitution."
Argue about other statues later - this one affects every American...
"Tear down that coil!"
   

"It is not art, it's a finger in freedom's eye."

The U.N.'s website describes it as "a giant Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver."
Every image I could find online shows it "as big as a house" (my wife's estimate, based on looking).
Couldn't even find a measurement online. This is how anti-rights efforts work.

I was there. It's revolver size. Yup, revolver sized. I was stunned. I expected to be dwarfed by it.
Just another lefty lie. I still don't have an image that shows perspective, searched too long, gave up.

"On the 2011 anniversary of the death of John Lennon,
fellow former Beatle Ringo Starr urged musicians to join
The Non-Violence Project..." (the statute was created related to this).

INVITATION
"I'm inviting Ringo, whose work I grew up with and adore, to a discussion of non-violence, and especially the non-aggression principle, so we can arrive at an intelligent common understanding of the difference between a knotted gun, a real gun, the tyrants behind the walls of the U.N., the possibility of peace on Earth, and real symbols of peace, like smiles, flowers and sunshine. C'mon Ringo, take me up on it, musician to musician."   --Alan Korwin

SHOULD BLACKS HAVE GUNS?

Sharpton, Jackson, NY Times, Community Organizers Say NO!

But blacks are arming themselves.

Just like white folk do.



The lamestream media told you:


Guns are bad. No one should have them. Well of course police should have them.
You trust the poe-leece, don't you?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The anti-gun movement is a function of the liberal left, which includes the famous “leaders” noted in the headline above.

If black leaders had their way, blacks would be disarmed (along with you). Guns are too dangerous. You'll hurt someone. Chances are greater that you'll hurt someone if you have one. Leave your safety up to the police (!). Underlying message -- you're too stupid to safely have a gun. Don't do it. Ignore 100 million neighbors who manage to safely do it somehow. Choose fear.

We leaders on the other hand, the ones bringing blacks this message of fear and danger, we can have guns (and that includes the headliners, bristling with armed protection). We, the authorities. We in gated communities and nice neighborhoods and we keep them that way. You don't need no gun. But we ain't exactly givin' up ours. Oh no.

Bottom line, when you strip away the Emperor's clothes, black lives don't matter, coming from the leaders of the democrat movements, who would ban guns for blacks, and gays and women and all the oppressed classes -- because they would ban guns for everyone. Except the people in power -- themselves. If that isn’t unequal treatment under the law nothing is.If black lives really mattered, there would be 700 murder trials for the 700 black murders Chicago experiences in a year. I can hearing you laughing. In your heart you know it's true.

Blacks are catching wise. A growing movement is spreading the message behind the Second Amendment. A two-edged sword? Of course. When you learn that peace and freedom are attained through a balance of power, and not the power of one group over another, you can reconcile it all. White folks have -- we're well armed and that's why we don't shoot each other. So look what’s happening (virtually absent from mainstream anything):


Black women gun training
Marchelle Tigner, in Savannah, Georgia, runs the first Atlanta-area class for black women to learn to shoot. Nov. 2016
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/27/black-women-guns-classes-racism-trump

Trigger Happy Firearm Instruction
Tiffany Ware, 44, Cincinnati, founder of the Brown Girls Project, which offers makeup workshops and other activities for building self-esteem in young black girls  -- has organized a group of black women for a firearms training class on 18 December

Black Women's Defense League
In Dallas, the Black Women's Defense League, launched in 2015, has seen the number of black women signing up for time at local shooting ranges at least double in the past 10 months or so.

Nicholas Johnson, law professor at Fordham University and author of Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms, pointed to a 2014 survey showing that 54% of black people felt that owning guns did "more to protect people than endanger personal safety", nearly doubling the 29% who said the same two years earlier.

Here is truth you won't find elsewhere --

Working Less Is Good -- or is it?

Unclear who is promoting Americans to work less

What possible ulterior motive could this include



The lamestream media told you:


“Knock off from work a little early? Sure, it’s good for you.” USA Today. Page One.
https://www.pressreader.com/usa/the-signal/20170211/282372629360489
Newspapers report facts, or claim to.


The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Any doubt that the lamestream media no longer supports The American Way (click that link) has been finally dashed to pieces with the appearance of a front-page story in “America’s newspaper” (self-proclaimed) USA Today, proposing hard work and long hours are bad and should be abandoned in favor of working less and slacking off, like the French do. According to a new study, so it must be true.

The study, from the great fortress of science, Australia, found that hard work “erodes your mental and physical health, leaving you less time to eat well...” Americans currently suffer from an obesity epidemic, not mentioned in the story.

The work was done by Huong Dinh, from the “research school for population health,” a new discipline. The Uninvited Ombudsman is awaiting charges of xenophobia (dislike of foreigners) to come flooding in for doubting the report. Wealth of Nations, by American Founding Father Adam Smith, upon which the most successful nation in the history of the world was founded (ours), conflicts with the report.

In a shockingly sexist and misogynistic statement, Dinh and reporter Mathew Diebel note that women should work less, because they must, “spend much more time on care and domestic work.” The typical insults and attacks usually hurled for inappropriate and differential sexist mistreatment of women were missing from the story, for reasons that were unclear. Women can, according to the report, work longer if “they compromise their health.” Who decides to run this stuff as if it’s news, or even valid, was also unclear. A picture of an attractive woman staring into the distance, wearing a telephone headset at a computer terminal, accompanied the story.

Scientists March for Earth Day

"We're not political!" they say.

Bwahahahahahahaha...

The lamestream media told you:

Earth Day is a glorious event that celebrates our stewardship of the planet and recognizes all the obligations we have to treat our Earth mother properly. All laws needed to control our effect on the planet should be passed without delay.

Scientists marched this year in the parades in a coordinated effort, and promoted the thought that because they pursue science, they are not political and so, presumably, "you can trust us."





The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:


Scientists aren’t being very scientific
if they’re holding themselves out to be non-political.

Everything in the public domain is political.

Any group operating on tens of billions of taxpayer dollars,
and constantly in need of more, is as political as it gets.
Read that again.

They’re holding up pictures of DNA and vaccines? Good. How about spy satellites, nukes and labs for weaponized anthrax. It’s proof they’re not only political, they’re underhanded and deceptive, with a hidden agenda and a phony narrative. Your friend the atom. Thalidomide. The coming Ice Age. The absolute trash that passes for science lately is preposterous. "Scientific surveys" are the worst. Some "science" is even done now by voting (Pluto anyone?). It’s the real reason certain “research” funds have been cut off by Congress -- to prevent taxpayer funding of political agendas disguised as science. Government “scientists” conducted human sterilization and eugenics experiments on people -- and were only stopped when forced to by outrage and new law. All sorts of law has been enacted to prevent so-called “science” from committing atrocities.

Now don’t take this the wrong way. Like anything, there are two sides to the coin, and obviously, the wonders of modern science and technology are fabulous. Hey -- we're on computers, right? Just don’t get snowed by this white-lab-coat holier-than-thou can-do-no-wrong all-the-answers mythology.

Science is just as messed up as police, doctors, the post office and your co-workers, and for the same reason -- because they’re people. The fact that their IQs may be high is no reason to place them on a pedestal above every human frailty everyone else has. If anything, this march showed they may be worse off than many of us, believing their own fairy tales. Don’t you know Sheldon Cooper?

Everyone wants clean land, air and water, but not everyone is good with the socialist controls packaged as environmental controls and stuffed in the same wheelbarrow.

 

Is Aaron Zelman Dead?

JPFO Remains Alive and Kicking.

"Friends of JPFO"

The lamestream media told you:

"News" coverage for firearms civil-rights groups is not happening. These days.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

I’ve heard rumors that Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership had lost its moxie after founder Aaron Zelman died. It shows you what a tremendous figure Aaron was. JPFO lost its Moses and the rabble figures they’ll walk in circles for 40 years. JPFO experienced changes (posted at JPFO.org), moved, and continues breaking ground in Aaron’s strictly zero-compromise pro-gun-rights tradition. We do deeply miss his voice.

JPFO filed a court amicus brief against anti-gunners in California trying to ban gun stores. The Bill of Rights Sentinel newsletter is back in print -- and no one says what that rag does (See below, get one). The David and Goliath Award is recognizing heroes the mainstream doesn’t want you to know about. You don’t have to be Jewish to join, you just have to love freedom and want a respected, morally courageous ally on your side. Join as a Friend of JPFO.

[Sentinel EXCERPT:]

I’ve had it with all these statist gun owners who think training should be required. Exercising your rights doesn’t require training. Failure to get training doesn’t vacate your rights or subject you to penalties. Got it? No training required to be a parent to helpless infants, none needed to buy poisons and sharp things in Home Depot, no certificate of completion needed to enter bizarre religious ritualistic buildings. Understood? A dangerous world does not justify government training your life. Smart people get trained for everything because they’re smart. Get smart. Do it on your own. With or without any kind of training, if you screw up, you're responsible. OK? Training doesn’t get you off the hook, at all, but it may help you stay off the hook (and looks good to juries). Making the government force you to be trained the way it thinks you should be trained is horrific.
