THE SUNDAY BIG QUESTION: WHO WILL WIN THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN 2016

Posted in FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS on 05/06/2016 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

I wish I could keep you in suspense with 5,000 or more words this morning about demographics or contested conventions. But I can’t. After rooting around on Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight site and poring over the comments sections of numerous Progressive and Conservative blogs I have come to a clear answer on today’s big question five months before the election. Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the 45th President of the United States.

This will be due not to some October surprise but simply based on both a brutal and sickening campaign season of some very unpresidential nastiness and the demographic tide turning against conservatives and this new name for white political anger–Trumpism. Trump’s supports by the best metrics I have here make up a potential 39.5 million voters in the United States of America. Conversely, Hillary Clinton has a maximum demographic pool of slightly over 80 million voters, many of those concentrated in states that you have to win in 2016 to win the election. Florida and Ohio, generally battleground states in any election will this year not be. Texas for the first time since 1976 has a slim chance of turning blue. By 2024, Texas will be firmly blue from the state legislature up to the majority of congressional districts post the 2020 Census according to TED-OG. That shift, coupled with the continuing decline in the white voter base over the age of 55 in the South will mandate a shift in the GOP that was called for in the autopsy of the 2012 election by the RNC.

There has been a simple solution available to the GOP for a decade now; shift away from bigotry and social issues into an engine of inclusive job creation based on fixing the $2 trillion worth of infrastructure refitting that needs to be done over the coming two decades. That tack rather than trying to use fear and loathing among ageing white under-educated Americans would have brought in Latinos, blacks and women to the party. Sure Trump’s base loves to hear him calling out the “liberal press”, posturing on building a wall to keep out immigrants from Mexico and Central America, and appealing to white men by being macho in the face of threats like Megyn Kelly, but in the long run this sort of political path doesn’t gain him any new voters among groups where GOP candidates have failed over the last several elections.

The Democrats are not without their political sins in this age when they can claim the White House for the longest run in the last forty years. Minority poverty, gender pay equality, a lasting immigration policy that strengthens America, both economically and from a security standpoint, and the fact that America’s infrastructure is crumbling are all issues that Progressives over the next decade must address with a carrot and stick approach. These are the things that a Clinton Administration from 2017 until 2025 must focus on to assure that when we have this discussion again in eight years I will feel as equally confident that Cory Booker will win the White House. But for right now, as the pots simmer and the conventions loom close on the horizon I can confidently say that on a cold January morning next year we will be referring to the United States Commander-in-Chief as Madam president for the first time in American history.

I’ve been counselled to let bigots stew in their own juices for decades. Sure it’s fun to poke at them and expose their foolish prejudices, but rarely are bigots and racists converted to rationality. So effective immediately I, like my other colleagues here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork will reserve my comments on posts from Tim and Bill’s Views From the Right Side here as posts.

RemoveRebelFlag!

Pain especially is distressed at the editing of comments used as a tactic there and Sarah is just simply fed up with their bullshit. So from time to time you will see a link to their site and i ask any and all readers to judge for themselves if they espouse bigotry in their writings. We’re just going to go back to doing what we do best– reporting the news and bringing facts to a facts starved America.

TRUMP’S DEBATE TEMPER TANTRUM GIVES FAR RIGHT CONSERVATIVES COVER ON DALEIDEN’S INDICTMENT AND THE BUNDY BLUNDER IN OREGON

You know, it was almost worth it now watching ACORN fall victim to conservative videographer James O’Keefe. Almost. This morning if you read the conservative site Breitbart.com you wouldn’t see much about two of the biggest stories in the nation. First, David R. Daleiden has been indicted on counts of tampering with a government issued ID, a felony and attempting to procure fetal tissue a misdemeanor by a grand jury in Houston, Texas. Daleiden, the director of the dubiously name Center for Medical Progress, and his accomplice Sandra S. Merritt will stand trial for their crimes and the effect of their errors has been to vindicate Planned Parenthood as an organization.

On the west coast, LaVoy Finicum, 54, a supporter of Ammon Bundy and the group who have “taken over” the Malheur Wildlife Refuge is dead and seven others have been arrested in a joint operation by the FBI and Oregon State Police. Now I’m watching Sara Sidner on CNN reporting on these events and one of the insurrectionists is claiming that Finucum was killed in cold blood doing the hand up don’t shoot. How ironic considering the bulk of the people supporting this act of redneck stupidity under the guise of bringing America back to Constitutional rule, or something like that, are the same people who shouted support for George Zimmerman. Well now with Finicum dead, unconfirmed reports here are that he killed himself, I think we can call this even. Brian Cooper is still in control of the remaining insurrectionists that didn’t flee home last night but the time that he has there out of communication with the FBI is surely limited.

ROWAN COUNTY KENTUCKY CLERK KIM DAVIS SHOULD NOT BE FIRED BECAUSE SHE WAS A WHORING SLUT BEFORE SHE FOUND RELIGION SHE SHOULD BE FIRED BECAUSE SHE IS WHAT THE FAR RIGHT HATES THE MOST SOMEONE WHO IS TAKING PUBLIC FUNDS TO DO NO WORK

Posted in COUNTER-THEOCRACY, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, IN HINDSIGHT, LGBTQ RIGHTS, MARRIAGE EQUALITY, PROGRESSIVES ON THE MARCH, RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY, UPPER MIDDLE CLASS WHITE TRASH on 03/09/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

Sure, I was ready this morning to write about what a hypocrite on marriage Kim Davis is considering she’s been married four times had twins out of wedlock and divorced three times. Her life from 1984 until her bolt from the blue conversion four years ago is no caricature of conservative religious people in America it is the reality. But when you come right down to it I could not possibly care less about who Kim Davis fucked while she was married or how many times she went to a clerk to file for divorce. [I am struggling with the fact that if their had been a really fundamentalist clerk at the time she was pregnant out of wedlock and trying to file her final papers what a shitstorm that would have been in 1994.–F.S.]

Kim Davis is paid $80,000 a year to be Rowan County clerk. She is being paid to not do her job currently in a place where the median household income is $33,081. Davis as an individual makes more than twice the household income of this rural, poor county. She is living a lifestyle far above the people who come to her office on a daily basis. Conservatives have whined for decades about welfare and how much money can be saved by cutting off single mothers and minorities who need a safety net.

same-sex-marriage

In Hindsight
Well here’s your chance conservatives to cut off the money spigot to a religion crazed bigot. Just taking the gap between the household income figure for Rowan County, $46,919, and dividing that by 12, $3,909.92 would provide food stamps [at Kentucky’s rate of 127.33 per person per month.-F.S.] for 30 people. Not three people or even fifteen people but 30! For all these years conservatives have foamed at the mouth about taxpayer money being wasted. Here you go right wingers this is your chance to show America and the world that your fiscal issues are more important than your social issues. The Supreme Court has ruled and legally no matter what your religion [if a Muslim clerk in a urban center was making the same refusal I would have written a basically similar article but I doubt if a Muslim female clerk would have anything like Kim Davis’ marriage and divorce record.–F.S.] marriage licenses must be issued to same sex couples seeking to marry. Kim Davis needs to get off the Rowan County dole and see how well her retrograde religious bigotry will play out in the private sector. Rowan County must fire Kim Davis; she can keep her religion but not the people’s money.

THE FOG OF JOURNALISM: WALMART FIGHT IN BEECH GROVE, INDIANA; ASHLEY MILLER BRADENTON, FLORIDA

Posted in CRAZY FLORIDA, CRAZY INDIANA, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, THE FOG OF JOURNALISM, WALMART on 28/06/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

I have finally stopped laughing and in a few brief minutes you will know why. Not so long ago a woman in Maricopa County, Arizona, Sarah Dae Walker, was setup and charged with attempting to have sex with a dog. We here at the Dis brimstone Daily Pitchfork defended this woman against the witch hunt being carried out by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

ashleymiller

Today in one of my stories that were buried by bigger news is the case of Ashley Miller of Bradenton, Florida, who law enforcement states was the person of interest in a case of transmission of material harmful to a minor. In the course of the investigation Miller’s cell phone was confiscated and examined. On that cell phone were pictures of her having her vagina [ more likely her labia and clitoris?- G.R.M.] being licked by her female pit bull 2face. Miller freely admitted to the fact that the pictures were of her and the dog. The police report from Bradenton, Florida makes note of more than 60 encounters between Ashley Miller and 2face over the past nine years she has owned the dog. Miller was released on $1000 bond.

amber-stephenson

In the hamlet of Beech Grove, Indiana [Indiana, again?-D.V.] a fight broke out between Rebecca Mills and Amber Stephenson over some racial epithets and threats against a WalMart employee made by Mills. Of course, Mills had called the employee a nigger and said she would whip the female employee’s ass. Stephenson attempting to be a good citizen stepped in to defend the employee and the scuffle ensue. Stephenson’s son was also enlisted in the fight against Mills and it was that action, the endangerment of a child, for which Stephenson finds herself in trouble. Now Beech grove is the antithesis of the “inner city” that so many conservative bloggers write about daily. “Beech Grove is not Chicago,” I am sure they would shout. But Beech Grove with 91.5% of the population white has had more than 800, that’s right 800 incidents at this one Walmart this year and it’s not even July yet. Dennis Buckley the mayor of Beech Grove has gone so far as to call the Walmart, “a public nuisance.”

Two people scaled the flag pole in the shadow of the South Carolina State Capitol and removed a symbol of false superiority, hatred, murder, rape and inhumanity yesterday. Those two people have been identified as Brittany Ann Newsome and James Ian Tyson. To me these Human Beings are heroes.

Newsome confederate-flag

Newsome was heard shouting as she was arrested, “You come against me in the name of hatred, repression, and violence. I come against you in the name of God. This flag comes down today.” I don’t have anything worthy to add to that most positive of sentiments.

THE CONSERVATIVE LITERARY LEITMOTIF THAT WILL NOT DIE: THE DRUMBEAT OF CULTURAL MARXISM BY MODERN DAY CONSERVATIVES REINFORCES THE TRUTH THAT THE RIGHT IS STILL FIGHTING A WAR THAT WAS OVER NEARLY 100 YEARS AGO

Posted in AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM, CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE DESPERATION, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HEADS EXPLODING, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE OBSESSION WITH SEX, COUNTER-THEOCRACY, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS on 14/06/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

I walked into Cavalor’s office Friday morning and he asked me if I could write an article without swearing of having a picture of a nude man or woman attached to it. I said, “Sure, I could do that but why would I?” He pointed me to an article written by Paul Kengor in The American Thinker entitled, “Bruce Jenner, Cultural Marxist?”. Now I had my reason and my marching orders and so for all those who read my articles to get the In Hindsight pic at the end I’m sorry there won’t be one here because this is far too serious an issue to mess around with [note the lack of the f-bomb there?].

Let me begin by saying that this article isn’t about what I think about Caitlyn Jenner. She’s a grown woman and has made a difficult decision and I will leave it at that. It’s not my place to judge Caitlyn Jenner, because she poses no threat at all to the United States of America as an ongoing concern. Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, however, does pose a threat to the United States of America in a clear and present way. Mr Kengor is selling a poison to old people, to frightened people and to stupid, angry people. That poison is sweet in the mouth but kills the one thing in the mid that Human beings, the real ones, need to be successful in the First Life no matter how nostalgic or uneducated they may be–Reason.

The poison I speak of is the need to perpetually fight all forms of change that do not conform to the conservative notions of American society circa 1900. In that time the church, law enforcement, corporate leaders and white men, no matter what they had in their pockets or their heads, held universal sway over all others. They were at the top of the pyramid that was the American social pecking order. These men and their moribund, yes even in that time, institutions were virtually free of oversight or question from those below them. Sure there were those on the Left even in that age that were seeking to level the playing field but it did take a series of revolutions in Europe to make people, especially working people understand that the world could change.

Before then a simple technological advance got the ball rolling. When Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first successful flight on December 14, 1903. That event was the spark as I see it that changed history forever. Noted Hellac statesman, of that time and now, Reefic Coljik said it best on the day the news of flight was reported here in Dis, “If man could fly, if man could slip the chains of gravity from his waist and shoulders, then man can unshackle himself from the other burdens to him becoming a Human Being who loves others and respects Himself.” And now a bit about burdens.

I bear a burden that I carry even here in Hell with delight. I am Jew and I will forever be a Jew. When white people no matter what country start to suffer, it’s the Jews who are most often blamed. Even today in 2015 when white conservative animus against blacks is growing toward open vocal disdain in an age when saying the wrong thing will cost you your livelihood, the so called thinkers on the Right have reached back into their tried and true bag of tricks. Blame the Jews–again.

The current crop of Jews to be blamed are from a group called the Frankfurt School and include noted dialectical aesthetician Gyorgy Lukacs. To make a long story short and not bore you philosophical terms and minutiae this is an argument Kengor is having with himself in his own head about why there is so much sex–everywhere! You could go back to the lack of adequate sex education that lead to the boom in teenage pregnancy in the 1980s. I would prefer to point to the fact that it has been technology, in the form of the service you are using right now to read this article, the Internet, that caused the decline in teen pregnancy in the United States.

Kengor isn’t a Luddite but he is fighting a war on technology and he doesn’t realize it. Caitlyn Jenner isn’t a cultural marxist. She’s the product of a Progressive drive to use science and the products it creates to make the lives of individuals better. There was a time, and Kengor makes it clear in his article that he would like to return to that time, that only religion could make an individuals life better. In the America that Kengor relishes as a white man not only would he have unchecked power over women of all races and men of all other races he would also write the very schedule of life for those below him.

Only by staying in your place could anyone of color or a white woman have any material comfort or even peace. Self determination in employment is important to any successful nation. While you really don’t have full-throated self determinism in America today you do have more options and opportunities than most in the rest of the world. The world of the revisionist conservative would see a female child born live and die to serve only one purpose, to breed more children so there would be more white masters who would grow up to run things as they see fit.

There is a line in Kengor’s article that struck me as unintentionally honest. He writes, “Though the Frankfurt School certainly wasn’t calling for same-sex marriage — pure madness to any people in any day beyond our own — its comprehensive push for unhinged sexual openness with no cultural or religious restrictions leveled the door for almost anything down the road.” The word that allows me to see into the darkness of conservative thinking is the word restrictions. This is a called out mandate that The Church has control de facto or de jure you choose over the day to day choices that American citizens make. That is what makes Paul Kengor and the masters that he serves a clear and present danger to the United States of America.

RACE IN AMERICA: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING AFRICAN-AMERICAN AND BEING BLACK

Posted in FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, IN HINDSIGHT, RACE AND POLITICS IN AMERICA on 13/06/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

Well here I go again diving into the deep end of the pool with an anvil tied to my back. No one will really like this post because it picks at the never healing scab of a wound in the chest of America that won’t heal in your lifetime no matter how old you are. Louis Armstrong an entertainer whom I consider a close friend explained racism and bigotry in America like this. “Freddie,” he said, “as long as there is more than one white grown man in America with low self esteem there will be bigotry. As long as there’s one rich white grown man who realizes money can’t buy him happiness that sees a black man laughing and free no matter his station there will be racism.”

I can’t argue with any of that. What I can try to unwind is what Rachel Dolezal is being accused of after it has been reported that she, an NAACP chapter President in Spokane, Washington isn’t black after all. She’s as white as you can get in America having been born in Montana to two white parents. All of this is curious especially when you consider that many of her friends with which she grew up with said she identified culturally with black American culture.

charlize
So what makes Dolezal different from the beautiful African-American pictured above? Well it’s as simple as one word–black. It is the connotation and all the Samsonite that comes with the word black in American culture that makes what Dolezal did such a conundrum for Progressives like myself and conservatives as well. Is this a straight con to get a job and artistic notoriety or is it a natural urge that gave this formerly white woman comfort? As a journalist it’s not up to me to answer those questions but it is a part of my duty to ask them.

hindsight 2377
In Hindsight

I’ll leave this here for the same reasons that there was no reason for me to write about Caitlyn Jenner. There are already pounds of opinions on the Internet that have raked the coals and plowed that field enough. Meh. What Dolezal has done is to force America to understand that America is changing, dramatically and quickly socially. Maybe it’s no longer possible to choose to be black because blacks cannot tolerate this from a moral standpoint after centuries of suffering the dual fists of bigotry and racism from rich and poor whites alike. Maybe it’s a matter of the shifting demographics and a purely economic and political decision that allowed her to make positive career choices she wouldn’t have had as a white woman in the same environment. Or maybe Rachel Dolezal just wanted to work somewhere that allowed her to have her hair natural all the time. I invite her to tell us here at the Dis Brimstone-Daily Pitchfork because that would be quite the scoop.

HOW HELL WORKS: THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “JE SUIS CHARLIE” AND “WE HATE SAND NIGGERS!”

Posted in ANDREJ PEJIC, CHARLIE HEBDO, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, HELLAC CAMPAIGN TO END BIGOTRY, HOW HELL WORKS, IN HINDSIGHT, JE SUIS CHARLIE, LEE GERMAINE, PAMELA GELLER, TERRORISM on 05/05/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

Any rational person should be able to grasp the difference between the two phrases in the title. The first is the unifying phrase in defense of the right to Free Speech shouted around Terra after the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks in Paris earlier in 2015. The second is the unspoken, but resonant tone of an organization run by Pamela Geller called Stop the Islamicization of America or SIOA.

Now, to me, Islamicization means a takeover of American culture or government by the religion of Islam. Currently Muslims make up about 0.9% of the population in the United States despite being one of the fastest growing religions in the world. There have been other sources that have stated the Muslim population at as high as 11 million but those figures are inflated as the CAIR numbers are for political purposes. The figure I will be using comes from the Pew Research Center report in 2011.

So figure the odds of a group made up of less than 2 million adults taking over the United States of America. I would be quick to point out that if that number represented a standing army it would be a formidable opponent for any nation. But for the United States? I doubt it.

Still conservatives are shouting that the attack on an event in Garland, Texas this weekend by ISIS inspired and linked terrorists is an assault on their free of speech. I agree that it is an assault on Free Speech and it is the worst kind of assault on the worst kind of Free Speech. As odious as Geller and her organization is they have every right to hold an event for cartoonists to do whatever they wish. Art is art and this is Truth. If anyone alive on Terra has learned anything from the Charlie Hebdo events it is that freedom of speech often comes with a heavy cost–often in lives cut short by those who are simply backward and pro-Death. Now this doesn’t apply to all Muslims, of course, anymore than I think everyone who is white and living in rural or suburban America is addicted to heroin or some other opiod.

But what is missing from all the right wing arguments is the clear context of both events. Charlie Hebdo, as a magazine is a brazen shit stirring and sarcastic work of journalistic art writ large for decades. Geller’s organization serves two purposes to enrich her from the trough of white bigots looking for somewhere to vent their anger at the loss of privilege post 9/11 and well maybe there’s only one purpose to SIOA when I really think about it. To conservatives what they did in Garland is speech, hate speech that must be protected from government or personal infringement. Yet they are offended, mind you not to the point of coming to Hell and shooting up the offices of The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork, by displays here of nudity, sexuality or eroticism. It’s sort of curious that these people adore guns and cling to their Bibles and yet are appalled by the nude male or female form. But so are those ardent defenders of a state that doesn’t and never will exist on the other side of this boring and meaningless Modern Age Crusade.

hindsight 2376
In Hindsight

This is once again much ado about nothing from the right. Geller will continue to have her political fringe whoredom as the woman who stood up to Islam and shook her fist. Only martyrdom for her cause is likely ever to give her the fame orgasm she lusts for and I hope that never happens.

THE DEATH OF THE MIDDLE CLASS: TIMOTHY WADE MILES, MUNCIE, INDIANA NAACP PRESIDENT AND FRED ZEH, JEFFERSONTOWN, KENTUCKY

Posted in FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, THE DEATH OF THE MIDDLE CLASS with tags , , , , , on 27/04/2015 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H. [Journ.]

fredschwartz1

Two stories, both tragic, both simply local news, but one has drawn the gleeful ire of conservative bloggers and the other has not. I’m not the crime guy here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork, I’m the stats and research guy. When i get up in the morning I’m looking for trends and in this case I’ve got a series of deep trends.

An ongoing sting operation in Muncie, Indiana ensnared a MITS worker who was selling cocaine. That worker is Timothy Wade Miles the current president of the local chapter of the NAACP. Conservative bloggers are having an ideological orgasm over this because, in their fetid minds, this means the national NAACP is a corrupt organization that is in the illegal drug trade. By all accounts, the real criminals in this case are the corporations and the 1% that keep ripping away the tatters of the Middle Class American Dream. That dream is gone for virtually every average citizen in America who used to be able to save for the future of their children. Now, you are lucky to be one of the millions living paycheck to paycheck and one catastrophic necessity breakdown from poverty.

Conservative sites are angry that this isn’t the lead story on CNN, MSNBC and the three major networks for the next five news cycles. They are crying and ripping their shirts that there has been a “media blackout” about Wade selling cocaine to undercover cops and offering to give cocaine to a female informant for sex. In reality as the link above notes there is no media blackout because it is a local story, not a national one. The losers in this story are Wade and his family because he’s busted and at best he’ll get a plea deal and decades in prison. There are no winners in this case because the bones of the middle class dream are still being sucked on by the 1%. Wade did what he did for self gratification: for money and sex that he couldn’t get from the husk of the current Middle Class condition in America.

This takes me to the case of Fred Zeh in Jeffersontown, Kentucky. This is another local story not too far from the story in Muncie, Indiana. Zeh shot his wife in the head while she was leaving a business. He left the crime scene according to police reports went to a bar and had a few drinks and then went home and shot and killed himself. Zeh wasn’t a Progressive, he isn’t black and he has no ties to Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama by race, ideology or occupation so this story to the Right Wing Blogosphere simply doesn’t exist. But it does offer a cautionary tale to old white conservative men in America. The women you married back in the golden age of White Privilege are sick of you and the bullshit in your heads, the vitriol that spews from you mouths and how glaringly ignorant you are in this new age of technology. They want what they gave up to be with you 30 or 40 or even 50 years ago. They want their sexual freedom, economic freedom and their spiritual freedom from the jail of sharing a bed with an angry old white man. So every time you read a conservative blogger writing that it’s the end of the world for white conservatives because black people are rioting in Baltimore think about how many victims like Lucy Zeh there are out there who are killed by their white husbands simply because they want to be free. Now that’s a story folks.
