Man is a slave neither of his race nor his language, nor of his religion, nor of the course of rivers nor of the direction taken by mountain chains. A large aggregate of men, healthy in mind and warm of heart, creates the kind of moral conscience which we call a nation.
If and when you think about it, “Let’s Go Brandon!” while “meaning” “Fuck Joe Biden!” is really just an Americanization of “Éire go Brách!” It’s proclaiming America (Meiriceá) till the end of time/for eternity, just as the original form is proclaiming Ireland (Éire or Éirinn) till the end of time/for eternity.
Let’s Go Brandon!
Meiriceá Go Bragh!
Note: Given that the image is from the movie Braveheart, which is set in Scotland, the base phrase should be Alba gu bràth. I only used the Irish version due to Americans’ far greater familiarity with it.
Google E-A-Ts Freedom, free speech, and free thought by using its algorithm to down-list – effectively de-listing and therefore silencing – many sites and articles in potential readers/viewers search results. And, make no mistake this is a deliberate act on their part to perform both social engineering and kingmaking/regime change upon the world at large.
What Is E-A-T And How Is It Used Against Us?
Canonically, E-A-T stands for Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness. This concept originates from Google’s Search Quality Rater guidelines and it became well known if poorly understood after the infamous Medic Update in August 2018. E-A-T is one factor that Google uses to evaluate the overall quality of a web page.
Now supposedly Google is only being strict with applying E-A-T to what they define as YMYL (“Your Money or Your Life”) sites, articles, and/or webpages. But, as can be seen below, what Google considers YMYL is very broad, comprehensive, and includes most topics that people might have differing views upon and/or those topics which are in contention.
As you can see, E-A-T is used by Google to control the reach of a vast swath of what many people, groups, and organizations would normally write about and almost all of what they would consider important to write about.
Expertise comes down to how knowledgeable or skillful someone is perceived by Google’s algorithms when it comes to the particular subject that is the main content (MC) of that is being graded. Essentially, it is posting content that Google’s systems agree with as being accurate, informative, and engaging.
Authoritativeness is Google’s way of defining whether or not a content creator/publisher has the proper credentials or associations to write upon the topic in question.
Trustworthiness is Google’s composite measure of how transparent your site in general is and how good its reputation and the reputation of any cited sources are among viewers.
So, Google is now using a combination of variants of the Genetic Fallacy, Ad Hominems, and the Association Fallacy in order to quasi-demand that YMYL content adheres to their chosen variety of Argument From Authority. And, of course, failure to abide by their Magisterium means that your content will not be seen by many people at all, keeping your ideas, positions, and viewpoints “safely” out in the empty wilderness where they won’t cause issues for the orthodox or popular ideas that Google supports and promulgates.
Hence, I’m telling you, those few individuals that will be able to find this article, that Google E-A-Ts freedom, of speech and of thought by actively denying voices they disagree with the reasonable chance of an audience. And by denying that potential audience access to “dangerous” ideas.
After over 4 years of trying to prevent Donald Trump from taking the Presidency, and then trying everything and anything to remove him from office, the Dems are now calling for unity and broad support for the likely-to-be incoming Biden-Harris regime.
Well, except that they’re demanding conformity, not requesting unity. Not that unity is something that they could ever achieve, even among their own. One need only ask Ocasio-Cortez or ask Democrat politicians about her to see the stark disunity among them.
But yet, even with chaos and discord among their own cabals, there’s plenty of talk about Democrats compiling lists of Americans and American companies to be “held accountable” for supporting President Trump. It’s even made international news due to the threat to democracy it poses.
Ironic, isn’t it, that the first things Dems do after claiming that President Trump was a threat to democracy, is to take pages from Franco, Stalin, and Hoffa’s playbooks?
Now, truth be bluntly told, I’d normally ignore the Dems’ rants in this. Bombast and threats of reprisals are normal for those who think, after a struggle, that they are the victors. But, as thing are, with: #BlackLivesMatter, #Antifa, #CancelCulture, and the various forms of violence they’ve perpetrated against Americans, I don’t believe this threat can be downplayed or ignored.
Now that you’ve ceded authority to the government for the supposed sake of your safety and everyone else’s once, what now? What about the next time the would-be dictators, benevolent or not, want to strip your constitutional rights away under the penumbra of it being for your health and safety and that of everyone else?
You’ve Set A Precedent
You’ve set a precedent, a precedent that the government at any level can freely violate most parts of the 1st Amendment if they rationalize it as being for the sake of public. Precedents are hard to overturn once established, especially if they’ve been accepted by any court.
And, when a precedent favors the government by expanding their control, it will be used again, each time with a little broader scope or in a context a little further away from whatever crisis was the basis for setting that precedent.
What I lot of Americans, myself included, view as a Christmas gift of sorts, is Nancy Pelosi’s Nightmare Before Christmas. While, like all Democrats, she hates the idea of reducing taxes, especially upon employers, what’s really has her screaming in the night is the GOP’s Tax Cut Bill’s provision to eradicate the Democrats’ tax penalty for not purchasing health insurance.
Yes, Pelosi’s nightmare is that the American people will no longer be forced under threat of federal reprisal to purchase something that they may or may not desire. Apparently, if we’re to believe that her histrionics are genuine, this really interferes with her sleep.
Of course, Pelosi’s singular and signature “accomplishment” of record was wildly unpopular and the mostly unmitigated failure that is generally called Obamacare. As she, again like every other Democrat to speak on the subject, believes that Obamacare’s continued existence is predicated upon the forced-purchase of health insurance, her nightmare has some basis in perceived fact.
OMG! They’re Not Forcing You To Buy Insurance
But then, if Obamacare and Pelosi’s peace of mind require that so many millions of people be threatened into purchasing an unwanted product – some, like myself, who were no longer allowed to purchase a similar product under Obamacare, whose nightmare should reign supreme, Pelosi’s or those millions of Americans’?
Frankly, it seems to me that Pelosi’s Nightmare Before Christmas is a Christmas gift to us.
