Unforeseen Contingencies to the Girl Socialist Squad: "Listen to President Trump!"
"We" at Unforeseen Contingencies fully endorse President Trump's call for Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley to leave America, since they hate it so much. That makes a great deal of sense. All four of them oppose America and the principles on which America was founded, and propose fundamental changes that would destroy the country. It would make sense for them to simply go to another country since they claim America is so bad.
Trump's opponents are trying to claim his comments to the Girl Socialist Squad are racist. That makes no sense. He picked these idiots out because of their vile positions, not their races. Consider:
- All are socialists (communists, really, but in this context quibbling over the supposed differences is of no importance -- they want to abolish capitalism).
- All hate America and America's founding principles (Omar is a real doozy on this, claiming America was founded on the principles of racism and genocide).
- All are virulent anti-Semites.
- Ilhan "Some People Did Something" Omar defended Somalis who tried to leave the U.S. to join Daesh and Al Shabab. She's a sympathizer of these groups, if not an agent.
- Tlaib defends Hamas and promotes the destruction of Israel and annihilation of the Jews.
- Ocasio-Cortez has proposed destroying the U.S. economy in twelve years with the Green New Deal. (As I pointed out, it isn't really about climate, as her handler now admits.)
- Pressley is simply a kook who imagines that to be black, or Hispanic, or gay means you have to adopt radical left positions, otherwise you're not authentic and should shut up or be silenced.

A short story... for Ilhan
“After I’m dead I’d rather have people ask why I have no monument than why I have one.”
My entry. I dedicate it to Rep. Ilhan Omar and BDS:
There'd be no monuments, he knew. He had failed. Yes, he had come close, so many had fallen in behind him. And there were successes. But in the end, he'd not purged the scourge. They remained. He'd failed and would be hated. No monuments.
But neither would he be forgotten. He knew that others, in the future, would understand, and resume his struggle. No monuments, but he would be remembered. They would follow.
He could hear Zhukov's men outside. He moved next to Eva's body and raised the barrel to his lips...

The attitude she projected about this was quite positive. She building endurance, professional skill, and self-confidence... all before starting college. This is the key to success.
The gulf between her attitude and the "I want free stuff" attitude that certain of our politicians are trying to inculcate in us is enormous. She's building strength and self-reliance; they ask us to adopt helplessness and dependency, the route to individual failure and national disaster.
I was sufficiently impressed that I mentioned this to one of my colleagues. He responded "Good social norms have huge staying power. Unfortunately we are still doing our best to undermine them. Just think what the talk about debt forgiveness is doing to her incentives..." Yes, although I think the attitude and behavior of the clerk aren't social norms. They are individual -- they exist at the individual level, and if one wants to be successful this is the attitude and behaviors one must adopt, social norms be damned. Even as society is falling apart (perhaps especially if) the key to success is to set goals, then work hard, consistently, and competently to achieve them. Be self responsible.
Speaking of working towards goals, I took four days off from running for recovery purposes (did some easy hiking, walking, shooting, and a death-defying kayak trip down the Gallatin with Jeff "Kayak Geek" Ross to celebrate his birthday). Today I ran four miles; highlight was 4x0.25 miles (400m) intervals, just to push my aerobic conditioning and leg strength. I'm faster with better recovery than last year, I'm pleased to report. I also did 130 pushups and 70 deadhang pullups to round out the month. Onwards!

Google is Evil. Their plug should be pulled.
Except Google (owner of You Tube) already censored it. (It worked this morning!) You aren't supposed to know, says Google. Fortunately, Project Veritas makes it directly available. It's chilling. Google is evil.
Update 25 June: Blogger blocked the embed code from Project Veritas; I've now put in the Vimeo embed. Guess who owns Blogger.
Update 26 June. Disabled again. They really don't want anyone to see this, do they? Loading again.
Uploading for fourth time. Those bastards really are scared of this, aren't they! (All the white space is what the html code from the latest banned version leaves.)
Update 29 June: Wow, still up after two days! Is Goople losing it?

Running: First Day of Summer !
As I might have mentioned earlier, I'm training for the Woodstock 100 Mile trail race in early September. Yesterday, the last day of Spring, I did a 17 mile run up Sourdough Creek, just south of Bozeman MT. Today, the first day of Summer, I did a long 8 miler up South Cottonwood Creek, west of there. These were great opportunities to run with one of the locals and enjoy the warm late Spring/early Summer weather, such a relief after the harsh winter. I've documented my runs with photos for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

Meanwhile, the Democrat candidates are falling over each other endorsing every sort of socialist policy. The list of terrible things endorsed by Democrat candidates boggles the mind. Most have signed on to the Green New Deal, with would destroy the American economy and starve Americans. They also insist on raising taxes, abolishing private health care, censorship, more censorship, and -- of course -- mass citizen disarmament. That last one is a necessity for them, because the rest of their agenda constitutes a declaration of war on Americans.
It's astonishing that socialism has become the Democrats' big issue. It's a terrible, vile, and failed theory. Concentration camps and death camps were invented in the 20th Century, and every single one of them was produced by a socialist system. The socialist has little choice. Socialism is about engineering society -- it necessarily treats people as building material, and recalcitrant building materials with minds of their own tend to upset the great plan. Such eggs must be broken for the socialist omelet. Today's Democrat leaders seem to be all-in on this.
Thank heavens that Donald Trump, for all his faults, is actively fighting these people and winning. "We" at Unforeseen Contingencies endorse Donald Trump for re-election, and hope that the Republicans -- little as we like them -- sweep Congress. No socialism. Go Trump!
