A tale of two countries

Barack Obama is said to be a “constitutional scholar”. He is no such thing, although I grant the man his due in terms of real abilities, such as personal charisma and a sense of humor. The reasons I say he is no scholar are two:

  • The “ghost of Columbia”. In this story, at least two former students are suspicious that Obama ever attended there. There is little in the record, perhaps one photograph and an alleged roommate, such details easily planted by spooks. More importantly, a legendary Columbia professor, Henry Graff, has no memory of Obama ever being there. He taught American history and diplomatic history there, and says that any student of note who ever passed through there before going on to public reputation took his classes. Obama did not. He was never there.
  • Secondly, any serious constitutional scholar knows that our governing document is fractured and flawed, and that attempts to reassemble it are pointless. James Madison is considered the “Father” of the Constitution, a man who understood it better than any in his time, including the “Founding Fathers”. Pause on his words: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will the most part be connected. The powers reserved to the several states will extend to all objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people; and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.

Facebook: Waiting for it to blow over

Sometime way back when, prior to 3/11/20 when the WHO declared a worldwide “pandemic,” I had read that Facebook, prior to this bogus announcement, had employed additional personnel who were going to “fact check” posts and take down any that did not meet with the fake information that was put out by “authoritative” sources. I knew what lay in store. It wasn’t just Facebook, but tiny and insignificant websites like Next Door, The Canyon Courier, even stupid baseball blogs that were taking up the censorship cudgel. No one was allowed to question WHO and CDC, outfits that in the ensuing months have engaged in intense criminality and lying.

I quit Facebook. I knew what lay in store, and knew that Facebook would quit me as well. Earlier this year, on suggestion that having a Facebook account would yield access to things otherwise unavailable to me, I attempted to open an account. I wanted no “friends” or “likes”, and did not use my old email address, but rather a Protonmail one. Nonetheless, I learned that I was frozen in place and would not be granted an account. That is how thorough their censorship is. They had tracked me, even to supposedly secure Protonmail, another outfit I do not trust.
