      On The Dark History Of Intelligence As Domination

      "Sir Francis Galton is usually taken to be the originator of psychometrics, the ‘science’ of measuring the mind. He was inspired by The Origin of Species (1859) written by his cousin Charles Darwin. It led Galton to believe that intellectual ability was hereditary and could be enhanced through selective breeding. He decided to find a way to scientifically identify the most able members of society and encourage them to breed – prolifically, and with each other.

      The less intellectually capable should be discouraged from reproducing, or indeed prevented, for the sake of the species. Thus eugenics and the intelligence test were born together. In the following decades, vast numbers of women across Europe and America were forcibly sterilised after scoring poorly on such tests – 20,000 in California alone."

          I thought this was worth sharing.

          Michael Morell was deputy director and twice acting director of the CIA.


          "There is a second sacred wall at the CIA. Trump disrespects that one every day".

          On that wall is a verse from the Gospel of John that reads, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

          The quote was carved into the stone at the insistence of Allen Dulles, the CIA’s fifth director. Dulles, the son of a Presbyterian minister, felt strongly that a biblical verse needed to guide the work of his officers.

              For anyone who is participating in the #resistance we need to stay focused on the one key element that will separate us from "the deplorables" and that is backing up our claims with real truth and legit sources. We know the other side fights with infowars, brietbart, and any other blog that will give them confirmation on a wild claim. We must rise above them though and not use similar sources when fighting back. When we lower ourselves to using fake news to fight against fake news, we prove we are no better.

              If you are using a non-msm source, please make sure it actually cites a valid source when it lays out it's information. If it's not and you share it on social media, please make sure to include something in your post that states, opinion, not backed by facts, or something. Some of your friends and family look at you for the absolute source for valid information. I know for me, since I am a techy college educated person, it seems I have a higher expectation for what I post. Granted, sometimes we all get duped with a click bait article, but we don't need to spread those around without a read ourselves.

              I don't know how many times this week have I seen articles attempting to theorize how we could have an entire election do over, or to remove #45 and install Hillary, but they are wholly incorrect and are blogs from people who don't understand the process. While we all hope for something like that, sharing articles like that make us look silly to those who appose us. Meanwhile the right is letting their blood boil over faux outrage because someone 'shopped a Trump mat in a Starbucks and passing the image around on Twitter.

              One of the many fights we have is fiction versus fact. Let's not fight fiction with more fiction. Keep up the good fight until #45 is stuck in either jail or his golden tower and no longer in the White House soiling America's good name.

              A Trump Star Is Born

                  A star is born is our reaction to the first press briefing by President Trump’s new ambassador at the United Nations. The ex-governor of South Carolina was ridiculed by the Left when the president first sent her nomination up to the Hill, owing to her alleged lack of foreign policy chops. She certainly rang the wake up gong for that crowd this morning, after emerging from her first Security Council monthly meeting devoted to the Middle East. Tough as nails but with a smile and a layer of Southern charm.

                  The ambassador had just come from the regular monthly Security Council on Middle East issues. She said it was her first such meeting, and “it was a bit strange.” The Security Council, she said, is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But the meeting, she said, was not about Hezbollah’s illegal buildup of rockets in Lebanon, it was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists, it was not how we defeat ISIS, it was not how we hold Beshar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of thousands of civilians.

                  “No,” she said, “instead the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated month after month for decades. I am here to say the United States will not turn a blind eye to this anymore. I am here to underscore to the ironclad support of the United States for Israel. I am here to emphasize that the United States is determined to stand up to the U.N.’s anti-Israel bias.”

                  The ambassador made clear that the Trump administration will not support the kind of resolution from which the Obama administration’s ambassador — Samantha Power — shamefully abstained, though Mrs. Haley was too polite to name the humiliated Ms. Power. “The outrageously biased resolutions from the Security Council and the General Assembly only make peace harder to attain by discouraging one of the parties from going to the negotiating table.”

                  “Incredibly,” Mrs. Haley said, “the U.N. department of political affairs has an entire division devoted entirely to Palestinian affairs. Imagine that. There is no division devoted to illegal missile launches form North Korea. There is no division devoted to the world’s number one state sponsor of terror, Iran. The prejudiced approach to Israeli-Palestinian issues does the peace process no favors, and it bears no relationship to the reality of the world around us. The double standards are breathtaking.”

                  The ambassador warned that it is “the U.N.’s anti-Israel bias that is long overdue for change,” and said America will not hesitate to speak out in defense of its friend in Israel. All this was going on while the press was questioning President Trump on what he was going to do about anti-Semitism. If his ambassador to the world body is any example, the answer is plenty. She has the principles of a Daniel Patrick Moynihan, the grit of a John Bolton, and the star power of a Jeane Kirkpatrick, and in her first press briefing she certainly made her point.
