NZ Manifesto

It took a while to find (most links were dead by the time I got to them), But I finally located the manifesto of the New Zealand asshole.

It’s a disjointed mess. Taken at face value, he’s a neo-nazi, Green, socialist isolationist.

If you heard he’s a Trump supporter, you can’t prove it by this document.

As a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose? Sure. As a policy maker and leader? Dear god no

In some ways, apart from the eco-socialist stuff, it’s as though he was checking off all the boxes to be a stereotype of how Antifa views anyone left of Lenin, particularly anyone they think is a Trump supporter. It reads like something Occasional-Cortex would produce if she was faking a “right-wing” manifesto of a person out to save the White Race from those terrible brown invaders.

Again, taken at face value, this could be the work of a greenweenie who finally snapped when he could no longer rationalize issues with uncontrolled immigration from shithole countries.

Or not.

Then there’s weird stuff like this, stuck right in the middle of his attempts to explain himself and what he wants:

I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words.

According all the reports I’ve seen, he’s Australian. No indication that he’s been to America, much less been a SEAl. I suspect he slipped that in just to see if anyone reads his little rant.

As best I can tell, chumbucket is just a racist fuck who decided he wanted to be famous (which he carefully and repeatedly says he doesn’t want. A lot.), and chose a place where they won’t execute his ass for mass murder.

Stop New Yorking my rights

This was particularly amusing to me, from a personal experience.

Hundreds turn out for hearing on Vt. gun control bill
Opponents, many dressed in the bright orange T-shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Stop New Yorking my Vermont Gun Rights!” said a waiting period requirement would block people who have an immediate need of self-defense from an opportunity to quickly purchase a firearm.

Some years back in New Hampshire, during one of the periods of Dimwitr control of the State House, a Dim entered a bill which would have banned possession of a firearm on any publicly controlled (not just owned) property. Buildings, parks, streets, sidewalks…

Yeah, that bad.

Come the day of the hearing, eight or nine hundred people showed up to voice their objection to the bill. I was one.

When it came time for statements from the public, one of the first (might have been the first) was the bill’s sponsor. Now, remember: this was New Hampshire, the “Live Free Or Die State.”

I shit you not, this damnfool woman stood at the mic and explained that we needed this law “to be more like New York,” where she came from.

Holy crap, I thought the Dimwit committee chairwoman was gonna break her gavel and destroy her vocal cords trying to silence the laughter, and travel recommendations.

Victim-disarmament aside, you’d think anyone with a vague recollection of history would know that getting New Hampshire to be New York ain’t happening.

Made the news again

Got quoted fairly extensively in article about next month’s GPS rollover.

GPS Flaw: Security Expert Says He Won’t Fly April 6
UPDATE: Carl “Bear” Bussjaeger, a New Hampshire-based science-fiction writer, Air Force veteran and former telecommunications network technician, reached out to us via Twitter to say that the link between GPS timing and telecom networks is not direct.

“Networks don’t time off GPS,” Bussjaeger said in a tweet. “They time off internal/master station clocks. Those clocks periodically synchronize off GPS.”

Read more…

I got six paragraphs.

Of course, now that I’ve said that, the rollover will turn out to be a global catastrophe after all. [grin]

Crazocracy

Did you ever wonder about that blog title up there? “Random Acts of Gibberish.” Maybe you thought it referred to my writing.

Only in part. It really refers to the subjects of most of my stuff: Crazed current events. Which also explains that googly-latin slogan. Run it through an online translator.

When I was young, boys were boys and girls were girls, and it was determined by genetics, allosomes. XX = girl, XY = boy. People who thought they were other than what they objectively, scientifically, were… were considered crazy. We felt a bit sorry for them, and hoped they’d get treatment for their mental illness.

Now, we are expected to accept that genetics has jack shit to do with it, that gender is determined by whatever the flying fuck I think for now. It isn’t enough that we humor such reality-challenged schizos; we have laws requiring us to at least pretend we believe them, and social pressure to actually do so. Failure to recognize that clearly male specimen as female on sight can get you fired.

I wanted to go into a technical field so I could build and fix things like radios and computers. Back then, it was understood that meant studying math and science, so you could do it right, preferably without killing yourself or anyone else.

Now, colleges want to deemphasize math and science in engineering programs, and teach people to apply social justice concepts to bridge building instead of math. This does not bode well for the nation’s infrastructure, as we saw when a Jacksonville bridge collapsed before they could even finish it. Yeah, people died. Because it also didn’t occur to them to block traffic while they worked on that multi-ton hunk of concrete.

I thought it was bad when I realized “remedial” math and English was a real thing in college (outside of of bonehead “jock math” for the football stars). Now you don’t need math so long as you invoke social justice. Which you will be require to study.

I don’t know what you need to be a lawyer. I had a discussion with a law professor who lied about the outcome of a case in the public record and believes the federal government doesn’t regulate firearms at all.

I remember when folks were a bit dubious about letting 18 year-olds vote. When folks below that age weren’t considered mentally mature enough to sign binding contracts on their own.

Now, there’s a huge push to let 16yos vote so they can make laws keeping guns away from folks less then 21yo, because no one under 21 is mature enough to exercise rights.

Speaking of guns, I recall when there were machineguns and semiautomatic rifles, and people knew the difference.

These days? You never know. The ATF has classified funny-shaped bits of metal and shoestrings as machineguns. Now it’s inert chunks of plastic.

We live in a age where our alleged leaders believe in — and make laws based upon that belief — stuff like fully automatic bullets, deadly assault funnels, ghost bullets fired from phantom guns, trigger grips, and two hundred-round pistol magazines.

And I’m sorry the Russians finally made a rifle designated the AK-15, because now reporters who write about AK-15s, AK-16s, AR-47s, and the like are never gonna get their shit straight.

Used to be, folks were ashamed to be on the dole.

Now it’s all “universal basic income, free college with a degree in social justice engineering from a feminist walrus perspective (which accounts for the need for UBI), free health care, free smart phones, and goddamn it free effing everything.” Ask where the money will come from and you’ll get a blank stare and, “It won’t cost anything; it’s free.

Once upon a time, a congresscreep was expected to be bright enough to at least count his bribe money.

Now we have low-grade morons who think they can run the entire country off solar panels and windmills in just ten years, without figuring that 1) it requires several times the production capability of the entire world, 2) it would cost more money than there is. That one has an economics degree (see above re:colleges). Or the guy who wants to enforce gun control laws by nuking most of the country, and can’t grasp that someone might take offense at the threat. He’s running for President, by the way.

We elected a president who astonished everyone by not delivering his State of the Union address via tweets, and ordered his administration to call bump-stocks machineguns. A former president is still running around telling people he’s from Kenya himself.

Maybe Swalwell will get elected.

I’ve got a congressshit who seems to think nothing of the fact that one of his staffers gave every appearance of running an identity theft scam from the rep’s office, and was certain violating the hell out of the Privacy Act of 1974. Sure ’nuff, he got re-elected. Because his opponent was far, far worse. But then, Hank “Tippy” Johnson also got re-elected.

Stacey Abrams, one of the Left’s current darlings, and failed gubernatorial candidate, thinks she can ban guns and everyone will just turn ’em in because no one raised a fuss when the feds banned radar detectors (hint for any millenial reading this: they didn’t). She publicly stated that her voting bloc includes noncitizens, legal and illegal. No one in the media blinked.

Why would they? They believed Jussie Smollet got beat up by a couple of white guys wearing MAGA hats in the heart of Chicago, at 2AM, in sub-zero temps. And that the Covington kids attacked a Native American.

I do a weekly newsletter for The Zelman Partisans. It includes an aggregation of news stories from the previous week, so I have to read and watch a lot of news. Some outlets I can’t use at all because they’re so unreliable: CNN, MSNBC, Daily Beast, and more (correction: sometimes I use them when I specifically need to illustrate shitty reporting). Others I can use, but only if I can verify their version against other reports. You wouldn’t believe how much outright plagiarism I find in the process. Or, if you remember when the news at least pretended to investigate and report, you probably would believe it.

Aggregating that weekly news is now the most stressful work I do, because of the utter crap — “fake news,” if you will — I have to wade through. I doubt any of the subscribers have any idea how much time and effort goes into that little email. (Hint: the newsletter alone is a full time — overtime — job. Unpaid.)

(If any subscribers wondered about those silly cat pictures that occasionally show up in the middle of firearms news, that’s when the stress peaked.)

We now have a generation of “leaders” and “builders” raised to believe everyone gets a trophy, that knowledge isn’t important, feelz trump reality, and who are too fucking insane to recognize reality anyway. They’re “teaching” and training the next generation; we’re into a regenerative feedback loop, oscillating out of control. Literal, unarticulated screeching has become normal political discourse.

We are fucked, and I see no way out of it.

Mr. Smollett has some explaining to do

‘I Swear to God, I Did Not Do This’
We’re told he addressed everyone on set, saying …”I’m sorry I’ve put you all through this and not answered any calls. I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family. I swear to God, I did not do this.”

You told your version of events, in a police report and on GMA. The prosecutors told their version of events. Allow me to explain why I find the cops more credible in this matter.

When your story hit the news, I instantly thought that you were most likely hoaxing us. Two white MAGA guys randomly spotting you at 2AM on the streets of sub-zero Chicago… and recognizing you? And just happened to be carrying bleach and a noose?

Only someone who has never really tried to get to know Trump supporters, and relies on what the left-wing media says, would imagine that. By and large, MAGA types are not motivated by racism or homophobia. Their concerns are primarily economic, and just want to be left alone.

I was willing to give this a slightly higher chance of being real when more reports surfaced. Specifically, the dispatcher recording indicating you were jumped when leaving your apartment, and the “hate letter.” A dedicated stalker might wait stake out your apartment waiting for you to come out of a known location. But…

It was two alleged attackers. One crazy I could buy. Two seemed extremely unlikely.

Then it fell apart. It was as you returned to the building, not on departure. It wasn’t at the main entrance, where I’d expect a loonie stalker to be. And you’d just flown in to Chicago, arriving hours late. (In fact, if I’m looking at the right streets on the map, you had to walk past that.)

The version of events in the prosecution’s proffer go a little differently.

No one on video fitting your description. No video of your “attack” (when I first heard that you were only off video at one point for approximately 60 seconds, I guessed you’d merely made up the attack, and pick a site where you knew it couldn’t be disproven by surveillance).

But the proffer offers so much more. Please recall that is a legal document. The prosecution just told the grand jury that they have very specific evidence which — if I’d been on that grand jury, I would have voted for indictment — paints a picture of a actual faked attack. The evidence described will be turned over to you in discovery. If it doesn’t exist, the prosecution lied to the grand jury, which is even more of a crime than your seemingly false police report.

Mr. Smollett, you made an accusation. You have to back it up with more than, But you’re supposed to believe me. Your version currently makes no sense. The prosecution’s version does. You’ll need to prove that evidence doesn’t exist, or explain away odd things like IDing two black guys as your white attackers, your phone call coincidentally to the guys you said were your attackers, the canceled check… written to your alleged attackers, what would motivate these co-workers/acquaintances to attack, and why they aren’t white as you told the police. The near-witness who heard no shouts as you claimed.

Sure, you have a presumption of innocence. But your charges are based upon your own accusation against the brothers. They have a presumption of innocence, too, and you need to back up your accusation.

Smollett & the Osunsairo Brothers

Time for a little speculation. The Osunsairo brothers have been formally arrested. Last I heard, no charges have been filed.

Unless something else has come up (and it may have), I can only see just so many ways to charge them, as persons of interest in the alleged Smollett attack.

1. Cops think they know something, but refuse to cooperate: some sort of obstruction charge.

2. Cops think they’re the attackers: assault/battery charges.

3. Cops think they colluded in a hoax: conspiracy/accessory charge for filing a false report.

Option 3 would mean Smollett’s arrest as well.

One other thing that might have come up involves the receipt for items seized from their home. Among other item, it listed a magazine, paper with writing, and postage stamps. Perhaps they are suspected on sending prior threatening letter which was composed of letters cut from a magazine, with some handwriting, and mailed.

Another issue could be the gun, which I don’t see on the receipt picture I have, but which has been reported in the news… for what that’s worth, to have been found.

The elder brother has a felony conviction. If the gun was his, he’s busted: felon in possession. If it’s his brother’s gun, that might argue he left available to the felon. Or possibly neither had a FOID, making the possession illegal by either.

I think that covers everything that’s been made public.

If the brothers are being uncooperative, as some reports suggest, a firearms charge gives the cops some leverage.
