#boycottmsnbc fires Sam Seder for Ancient Twitter Joke

Here is my song “Sammy” a parody of a song I love “Sunny” by Bobby Hebb. Had to be released immediately considering the circumstances, I think we need to act fast. For real, he got fired for something he tweeted 9 years ago. I lead the charge #boycottmsnbc

You got fired from MSNBC

That sounds like a badge of honor to me

My Nemesis: Michael “the Brooklyn Bubble Boy” Brooks

Imagine a world where Donald Trump himself called me and my friends dumb. Trumpie himself just starts calling out me, Jimmy Dore, Tim Black, HA Goodman, the Sane Progressive, Jamal Thomas, Nico House, Joe Ballin, Joe 30-pack, Coolcat, labels us all the “dumb dumb left”. If Donald gave me any attention like that, you can be sure I would spend ALL my time attacking him in return in a war of words, song, and the general mayhem known as “All the Hypocrisy Podcast”.

The same would go true if any of the other dark figures on the “alt-right” internet called me and my friends at allthehypocrisy.com dumb.  I would sling my words at them. Plenty of ammunition when it comes to hypocrisy that I could use on these people. But, sadly, no republicans are shitting on me and my friends.

Michael Brooks shits on us. Brooksy is not an evil hateful figure, but he chooses to call me and my friends out as dumb, for no other reason than to make himself appear smart. Its’s part of his act- cloak himself as a “true progressive” while shitting on the other progressives for being dumb. His divisive strategy is entirely selfish. He wants his viewers to feel comfortable in a bubble of arrogant contempt. Everything he says is tailored around this theme. That’s the world I live in. Brooks is the monster I will have to deal with. He wants to mock what we are doing here at all the hypocrisy dot com. I have warned him many times to drop his “dumb dumb left” bullshit. I was happy for him to start a show of his own. I do not watch TMBS. I decided to ignore him for a while and let his show grow without my involvement, but he never stops with the bullshit I hear on the Majority Report. Brooksy lives off of insulting all the various “tracks” that existing and his narrow “brooklyn bubble boy” track is the only way to steer clear of his insults. Many times he will insult the viewpoint of someone who is white or sounds a certain way, then you will hear a person of color speak the same thing and he will let it pass.  Brooks breaks this rule when he routinely insults Tim Black.

Here is the insane thing about Brooks. Although in theory we agree on most all issues, his viewpoints seem to always be formed in a way that will annoy me. He hates everything that I love, everything that gives me hope.  For example, in classic Hill-bot form, (although Brooks likes to score points by putting down Hill-bots he acts like one all the time), Brooksy likes to put down Tulsi Gabbard.

There are so many reasons that I love Tulsi Gabbard, and yes she is nice looking! And she has a great delivery of speeches, and she is also very clever with interviews and questions. The people of Hawaii love her even more than I do. She speaks out against “regime change wars” and she is for legal weed. If you like Barack Obama, then you better love Tulsi, but Brooksy shows his true colors by shitting on her. Its pathetic.

The door is always open for Brooks to come on “All the Hypocrisy Podcast” to defend his selfish and divisive viewpoints, but he refuses to to so. That is what pisses me off more than anything. The appearance of bravado that Brooksy displays does nothing to hide his cowardice. He pretends that my web site does not matter, nor to my views. All that matters is that he stays well insulated in his comfortable Brooklyn Bubble.

Let this post serve as notice to Brooks and his ilk. We are ready to defend out principles. We have been ahead of the curve. We knew Hillary had no chance of winning WHEN IT ACTUALLY MATTERED!!! There is no excuse for nominating Hillary Clinton.

So whatever this issue at hand, you can trust those people who were ahead of the curve in the past. We must throw out the people who pretend to be smart and start listening to those who have a fucking track record. That was the whole idea of how Obama beat Clinton. We won’t accept people who voted for the Iraq war.

I don’t fear a debate because my philosophy is consistent, and history rarely proves me wrong, and if it does I try to EMBRACE WHAT I WAS WRONG ABOUT AND REVISIT MY THINKING!!!!   But this shit-head Brooks was saying dumb dumb left before Hillary lost, and he is still saying it afterwards.

 

The hypocrisy heard round the world

By Joseph Ballin 11/21/2017 4:45 AM EST

When I heard that Roy Moore was a rapist pedophile, I can’t say I was shocked. How many more (no pun intended) times do we have to hear about a Christian evangelical who wears his (and I do mean his) religion on his shoulder as a holy roller, only to be revealed to be a fraud? What I don’t get is why I haven’t heard the name Dennis Hastart brought up once during all this? Dennis Hastart was the LONGEST Republican Speaker of the House ever, period. And decades prior to that, revealed only after he left the speakership, that he had molested little boys as a football couch. Keep in mind as Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastart brought up and voted in favor of the 2004 and 2006 constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage in the US Constitution. Roy Moore is also another Bush Jr. era leftover crazy. Prior to Roy Moore being outed a rapist pedophile, Republicans seemed to be perfectly ok with supporting this piece of shit subhuman. Let’s take a look at some of the crazy batshit insane shit that Roy Moore said that should ban him from being elected dog caughter:

* Roy Moore in 2005: Homosexual “conduct” should be illegal
* Roy Moore in 2017: 9/11 was god’s judgement on America
* Roy Moore in 2005: Opposes repealing Jim Crow era segregationist amendments to the Alabama State Constitution
* Roy Moore on Barrack Obama: Obama was born in Kenyan, spreading the racist birther conspiracy theory
* Roy Moore in 2003: Removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for trying to keep up the 10 commandment statutes
* Roy Moore in 2016: Removed from the Alabama Supreme Court AGAIN for not enforcing same-sex marriage ruling
* Roy Moore in 2006: Keith Ellison shouldn’t be seated because he’s a Muslim
* Roy Moore doesn’t believe non-Christians are protected by the 1st amendment
* Roy Moore is a creationist and climate change denier
* Roy Moore is a Israeli apartheid supporter
* Roy Moore thinks DACA recipients should be deported
* Roy Moore has voted CONSITENTLY against rape victims and in favor of rapists
* Roy Moore casted the sole vote in favor of a man who raped a four-year-old

And that’s just the tip of the ice berg. So let me give you the short version, Roy Moore is a Nazi long before this pedo stuff broke and all these Republicans who endorsed him BEFORE the pedo story broke, but ceased to do so afterword’s are gigantic hypocrites.

And another thing that’s really hypocritical is Donald “Gram em by the pussy” Trump. I’ve seen two tweets from Donald Trump about Al Franken’s sexual misconduct, but none one tweet or one word about Roy Moore, or even his own past comments like “when you are a star they let you do it.” If it was a black person he would spend the next couple centuries tweeting and attacking them because Trump’s cracker racist to his core. Billy Bush, at the time an anchor for Access Hollywood, was fired for that tape, but if you a Republican presidential candidate you are punished by being elected president. What does that tell you about Republican voters and their views towards women? All these vermin who spent decades ranting about gays, or immorality, Bill Clinton being impeached over a blow job, banning sex toys, etc. And fast word to 2017 and the modern day Christian right can be summed up that they were just full of shit the whole time. And yet they will still pretend they are the party of GWAD!

GOP = Grand Old Pedophiles

2017 election results: victory for the left

By Joseph Ballin 11/15/ 2017 6:59 AM EST

For all the Hillarybots out there, I have just one question for you. Do you think we would have seen the left wing landslide win we saw last week if Hillary Clinton was president? As Jimmy Dore pointed out several times, Trump is a disaster, Trump can’t get anything done, he is destroying the Republican Party, and it’s better we get an ineffective fascist now, than an effective fascist later.

Andrea Jenkins (Minnesota Democratic–Farmer–Labor Party) was elected to the 8th Ward of the Minneapolis City Council. She is first African American openly trans woman to be elected to office in the United States. She was endorsed by Our Revolution. She’s very active in the trans community, including Trans Lives Matter. She’s a civil rights icon and a personal hero of mine.

Lee Carter (Democratic Party/Democratic Socialists of America) was elected to the 50th district of the Virginia House of Delegate. He beat Jackson Miller, the majority whip for the Republicans in the Virginia House of Delegates. He won with almost no support from the Virginia Democratic Party.

Larry Krasner (Democratic Party) was elected 26th District Attorney (DA) of Philadelphia. He beat Republican Beth Grossman. A lot of people don’t know DAs have vast power, they can choose which cases they want to peruse or not. Larry is pro-BLM, anti-death penalty (won’t hear a single death penalty case), anti-war on drugs, pro-Occupy wallstreet, wants to reign in the police.

Seema Singh Perez (Democratic Socialists of America) was elected to Third district of the Knoxville City Council. She is the first Indian-American elected council member.

Maine Question 2 was passed by Maine voters over the objections of Governor Paul LePage (biggest douche in a governorship). It expands Medicaid in the state of Maine. This is very good because Maine is an older state, a lot of Medicaid goes to pay for costs of old folks homes. LePage wants to delay this as much as possible just like anything else he touches.

Other interesting notes from this election. The Washington state legislature flipped Democratic and the Virginia House of Delegates is still in recount over who controls the chamber. In the Georgia state legislature, Democrats won three key seats there, making Republicans lose their super majority there.

This Russian fear mongering has got to stop

By Joseph Ballin 10/11/2017 6:09 PM EST

Over the last year or so now, we have experienced a way of Russophobia, the likes of which we haven’t seen in this country since the 1950s. Now because of both the Democratic and Republican parties we are on the bring of World War III and potential nuclear Armageddon. It feels like a million years ago when Barrack Obama made fun of Mitt Romney at a debate over calling Russia America’s number one political foe.

Since Trump has gotten into office the Russia fear mongering has kicked up in overdrive. Let’s go over some of the stuff Trump has signed that makes him a “puppet” of Putin:

  • USA imposes sanctions against eight Russian companies. Link: https://sputniknews.com/world/201703251051965233-us-russia-sanctions/
  • Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017, authorized $100 million dollars for the “Countering Russian Influence Fund”, to counter “Russian influence and aggression” and to “support civil society organizations in Europe and Eurasia.” It also included a measure imposing new restrictions and oversight on Russian diplomats in the United States. The Act also includes provisions that no appropriated funds may be used to support the Russian annexation of Crimea and assist Crimea, if such assistance includes the participation of Russian Government officials, or other Russian owned or controlled financial entities. It also states that no funds may be used to support “the Russian occupation of the Georgian territories of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali Region/South Ossetia” or to assist the central governments of other countries that have recognized the two territories’ independence. Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consolidated_Appropriations_Act,_2017
  • Failure to congratulate Russians on Russia Day, first administration to do this in 25 years. Link: http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/spineless-trump-first-potus-not-congratulate-russian-holiday-25-years/ri20103
  • On July 6, 2017, during a speech in Warsaw, Poland, Trump urged Russia to cease its support for “hostile regimes” in Syria and Iran. Link: http://www.jpost.com/American-Politics/Trump-calls-on-Putin-to-distance-Russia-from-Syria-and-Iran-498972
  • Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (Sanctions on Russia) Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countering_America%E2%80%99s_Adversaries_Through_Sanctions_Act
  • Two Russian diplomatic annexes (buildings) in Washington D.C. and New York City as well as its Consulate General in San Francisco are shut down and seized by the US government. Link: https://www.rt.com/news/401866-russia-diplomatic-properties-occupation/
  • DOJ wants RT to register as a foreign agent. Link: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/09/13/russian-network-rt-told-to-register-as-foreign-agent-in-us-it-says.html

This all happened under Russian puppet Trump’s presidency. And yet we have these idiots out there claiming Trump is secretly working for Vladimir Putin. The end results of all this Russia fear mongering is not about Trump. This is something I’ve been trying to point out for a while, this has nothing to do with Trump, he’s just a puppet of the elites to further their own agenda. The real achievement of this Russia fear mongering is to turn America back towards Cold War era war mongering.

A recent poll shows most Americans would support sending US troops to Latvia if Russia were to invade. Link: http://www.newsweek.com/us-military-europe-most-americans-want-troops-baltics-if-russia-attacked-648458 We now have so called liberals out there retweeting neocons like David Frum and Evan McMullin. However, not forgetting the Republicans and conservatives, the war state is now targeting them as well. Without any evidence what so ever, we now have people claiming Russia is behind BLM and “racial tensions” in the US, because racial tensions didn’t exist prior to Putin in the US. Previously the US government had claimed the Soviet Union at the time was behind the civil rights movement at the time.

Anytime the mainstream media focuses on something, you should always ignore it. If they focus on Russia or something stupid Trump tweets, you should go out of your way to ignore it and look up actual fucking news. We shouldn’t have to be worrying about a “evil” foreign government rigging our elections when we already have elections are basically rigged and all the exit polling doesn’t even remotely match the results. Keep in mind, the US government used exit polling irregularities as justification for overthrowing the Ukrainian government in 2014.

22,000 good guys with guns

By Joseph Ballin 10/3/2017 4:20 AM EST

The Republican Party, which formally was a parliamentary center-right wing party, has long ceased to function as a reality based political party. The current “Republican” Party that exists in the US is called the Democratic Party. As Chomsky pointed out in 2010, the GOP has moved so far to the right that they need to mobilize sections on America that wasn’t formally political before like evangelicals, conspiracy nuts, anti-vaxers, gun nuts, etc.

By right wing I don’t mean “conservative” or “libertarian” in the Americanized understanding of these terms. The Republican Party is a corporatist anti-life party. Anything that is good for their donors they support. Anything that causes death and suffering of innocent people they support. That’s why they support police, the military industrial complex, prisons, ICE, cutting healthcare, Puerto Rico relief, CHIP, oil, etc.

The reason they love guns is because their donors give them millions of dollars to shill for more guns. It is as simple as that. There could be 1,000,000 Americans killed by guns tomorrow and the Republicans won’t do anything about it. We have long ceased to exist as a functioning democracy when SCOTUS in 2008 delivered the Heller decision, giving a “right” to own a fire arm and when we allowed dozens of innocent kids to die in Sandy Hook.

The chickens you could say are coming home to roast. In the past, Americans genocided Native Americans at the barrel of a gun. In the present, the US is sending millions of guns and bullets around the world to various evil fascist regimes to persecute innocent people. “The tyranny Athens imposed on others, it finally imposed on itself.” – Chris Hedges. Now the tyranny is coming back to America.

If I had it my way, I would take all the guns in the US, melt them all down, and make a statue for peace, but I’m sure the alt-right would protest to tear it down of course. We can’t do anything about guns, but we will take away your healthcare so you die from the gun wounds. I wonder how much money it will cost to take care of the 500 survivors of Las Vegas. I’m sure the Republicans will go back to trying to repeal Obamacare and ensure all those people die. Again it is a party of death, not life.

The NRA’s bullshit propaganda runs hollow when you realize that those 22,000 people all probably had guns, and none of them “became a good guy with a gun.” This isn’t Die Hard, you cannot go around acting like Rambo shooting people you “suspect” of being the shooter. If all 22,000 people at the concert took out their guns and fired at the Mandalay hotel, we won’t be calling this a massacre, we would be calling this a genocide.

Trump isn’t just our only problem, he’s just the pure fucking evil of the Republican Party manifesting itself in it’s true form. In the same way Hitler was the manifestation of Germany’s rage for the Treaty of Versailles, the Trump voter is the finale columniation of 40 years of a slow moving coup by far right wing ideologies who have been going on a full blown propaganda brainwashing campaign, carried out by forces such as Fox News, right wing hate radio, Brietbart, and other reactionary forces.

Edit: I put 200,000 attended the Route 91 Harvest concert, it’s actually 22,000, but the point remains.

A podcast in review: Moderate Rebels

By Joseph Ballin 9/29/2017 9:44 AM ES

A new podcast I recently discovered, Moderate Rebels. The name comes from the mythical “moderate rebels” the Obama and Trump admiration have supported in Syria, which are nothing more than ISIS and other terrorist organizations. It is a podcasted created by Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal, both reporters for AlterNet’s Grayzone Project. it is a new podcast created in 2017, so you better check it out if you haven’t. The podcast is almost exclusively about foreign policy. The music in the podcast is alike NPR, but more jazzy. I agree pretty much with 99.99% of the foreign policy positions of Ben Norton and Max Blumenthal. Like example, you go on other progressive podcasts you will find almost everyone advocating for YPG/Kurds. If you listen to the Moderate Rebels, you will realize that no side in the Syrian conflict is good per say, including the Kurds, who have committed horrific genocides and ethnic cleansing of Yazidis and Arabs in order to create a Greater Kurdistan. If you are anti-imperialist you cannot in good faith be against the stability of the state of Syria.

Another thing you will notice in this podcast is no carrying water for Democrats. This is not a Democratic or Republican podcast. Moderate Rebels will attack the Democrats for their hypocritical attacks on Russia for the fake Russiagate bullshit, when in 2012 Obama told Mitt Romney that it was ridiculous to say Russia is our number one enemy. You will learn a lot from this podcast, like for example I didn’t learn that in South Korea it is pretty much a military police state over there. You can be arrested at any time for anti-war or environmental protests by claiming you are “pro-North Korean”. It is a highly patriarchal society, and yet we demonize North Korea all the time, but hold up South Korea as a “bastion of democracy” when it’s anything but.

I would give this podcast a 10/10 because I am very knowledgeable about other countries and it is very rare for a podcast to teach me new things about other countries. Check out Moderate Rebels on iTunes or their patreon. Give it 5 stars and a review.
