Under the Fedora Raverly gets woke, Google still woke, Sarkeesian gets broke, Trump No blood for Drones, Pintastic NE starts Thursday!

a Knit­ting web­site has decided to ban open sup­port for Don­ald Trump;

The ban includes “sup­port in the form of forum posts, projects, pat­terns, pro­files, and all other con­tent.” The com­pany assures users that if they get booted from the site for sup­port­ing Trump, “we will make sure that you have access to your data.” How good of them.
The rea­son for the ban, accord­ing to Rav­elry, is that “We can­not pro­vide a space that is inclu­sive of all and also allow sup­port for open white supremacy. Sup­port of the Trump admin­is­tra­tion is unde­ni­ably sup­port for white supremacy.“
The word “inclu­sive,” it would seem, has been rede­fined in true left­ist Orwellian fash­ion to mean “exclud­ing half the coun­try.” The
44.6 per­cent of Amer­i­cans who approve of Trump are all — every last one — white suprema­cists, accord­ing to Rav­elry. Got that, Amer­ica? If you sup­port Trump, you’re a vile racist and you’d bet­ter keep your mouth shut — if you know what’s good for you.

I’m sure declar­ing half of the US elec­torate a bunch of white suprema­cists is really going to help their busi­ness model, but I’m sure it’s going to ener­gize Trump vot­ers who don’t like being silenced.


Of course some folks are try­ing to do this at least a lit­tle on the sly.

Project Ver­i­tas has released a new report on Google which includes under­cover video of a Senior Google Exec­u­tive, leaked doc­u­ments, and tes­ti­mony from a Google insider. The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the out­come of the 2020 elec­tions and “pre­vent” the next “Trump sit­u­a­tion.”
The report includes under­cover footage of long­time Google employee and Head of Respon­si­ble Inno­va­tion, Jen Gen­nai say­ing:
“Eliz­a­beth War­ren is say­ing we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very mis­guided, like that will not make it bet­ter it will make it worse, because all these smaller com­pa­nies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with pre­vent­ing the next Trump sit­u­a­tion, it’s like a small com­pany can­not do that.”

Youtube has already sup­pressed the video, these guys aren’t even pre­tend­ing anymore.


I must admit as a friend of Robert Stacy McCain this made me smile:

as Brad Glas­gow explains in a remark­able YouTube video, Sarkeesian’s non-​profit is now essen­tially bank­rupt, hav­ing begun the year with a bal­ance of barely $30,000 and lay­ing off its employees:

Shortly after Sar­keesian went to twit­ter Stacy was banned, he closes thus:

Despite wast­ing $1.6 mil­lion, Sar­keesian “hasn’t even begun to solve the prob­lem,” and if you dis­agree with her, that’s because you don’t “care about the human­ity of peo­ple.” Is any­one really sur­prised that sane peo­ple don’t want to sup­port this fanat­i­cal ideologue?

Sooner or later the left’s use­ful idiots are no longer use­ful and thus not worth financing.


One of the most famous scenes in movies is where Don Cor­leone rebukes the under­taker ask­ing for the death of those who harmed his daugh­ter with the words: “That’s not jus­tice your daugh­ter is still alive.” I thought of this when I read this story:

U.S. mil­i­tary cyber forces launched a strike against Iran­ian mil­i­tary com­puter sys­tems on Thurs­day as Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump backed away from plans for a more con­ven­tional mil­i­tary strike in response to Iran’s down­ing of a U.S. sur­veil­lance drone, U.S. offi­cials said Sat­ur­day.
Two offi­cials told The Asso­ci­ated Press that the strikes were con­ducted with approval from Trump. A third offi­cial con­firmed the broad out­lines of the strike. All spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity because they were not autho­rized to speak pub­licly about the oper­a­tion.
The cyber­at­tacks — a con­tin­gency plan devel­oped over weeks amid esca­lat­ing ten­sions — dis­abled Iran­ian com­puter sys­tems that con­trolled its rocket and mis­sile launch­ers, the offi­cials said. Two of the offi­cials said the attacks, which specif­i­cally tar­geted Iran’s Islamic Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guard Corps com­puter sys­tem, were pro­vided as options after Iran­ian forces blew up two oil tankers ear­lier this month.

It would have been so easy to hit Iran mil­i­tar­ily, taken out a ship or two, destroy a few oil rigs over tak­ing out our drone. Given the fact that Iran has been at war with us for decades any such attack would be more than jus­ti­fied, but the pres­i­dent decided that he would not spill blood for an attack on an unmanned drone.

Don­ald Trump has advanced the pro-​life cause in many ways but this illus­trated pro-​life bet­ter than any other. It’s the most impres­sive thing I’ve seen from him as president.


Finally PINTAS­TIC NE starts this week. This is the 5th Pin­tas­tic NE and I’ve cov­ered every one. Here is my intro video from last year



My full video playlist from Pin­tas­tic 2018 is here

Of all the events I cover reg­u­larly, none is more enjoy­able, While the Lim­ited Edi­tion passes for the full four days are sold out. (I bought mine months ago) You can still get prei­mum passes for the full four days or for two days and of course there are day passes for each day rang­ing from $8 & $!3 Dol­lars on Sun­day and Thurs­day (kids $4 & $5) to $23 ($15 after 6 PM) on Fri­day and Sat­ur­day )$8 for kids)

There are spe­cial Williy Wonka Passes in honor of the new Williy Wonka Pin­ball machine and the appear­ance of three of the stars of the orig­i­nal movie Julie Cole (Veruca Salt) Paris Them­men (Mike Teavee) and the orig­i­nal Char­lie Bucket Peter Ostrum.

I don’t care what side of the aisle you’re on, this is just plain fun and you should come down and enjoy it. Plus whether you’re stressed over the cen­sor­ship of con­ser­v­a­tive, or stressed over Don­ald Trump a Pin­ball machine is the best stress reliever there is.

UPDATE: For those actu­ally inter­ested in the machine here is a video I found online of game­play that shows all the var­i­ous screen and angles of the new Willy Wonka Pin­ball machine at once



a Knitting website has decided to ban open support for Donald Trump;

The ban includes “support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content.” The company assures users that if they get booted from the site for supporting Trump, “we will make sure that you have access to your data.” How good of them.
The reason for the ban, according to Ravelry, is that “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.”
The word “inclusive,” it would seem, has been redefined in true leftist Orwellian fashion to mean “excluding half the country.” The 
44.6 percent of Americans who approve of Trump are all — every last one — white supremacists, according to Ravelry. Got that, America? If you support Trump, you’re a vile racist and you’d better keep your mouth shut — if you know what’s good for you.

I’m sure declaring half of the US electorate a bunch of white supremacists is really going to help their business model, but I’m sure it’s going to energize Trump voters who don’t like being silenced.


Of course some folks are trying to do this at least a little on the sly.

Project Veritas has released a new report on Google which includes undercover video of a Senior Google Executive, leaked documents, and testimony from a Google insider.  The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”
The report includes undercover footage of longtime Google employee and Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai saying:
“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”

Youtube has already suppressed the video, these guys aren’t even pretending anymore.


I must admit as a friend of Robert Stacy McCain this made me smile:

as Brad Glasgow explains in a remarkable YouTube video, Sarkeesian’s non-profit is now essentially bankrupt, having begun the year with a balance of barely $30,000 and laying off its employees:

Shortly after Sarkeesian went to twitter Stacy was banned, he closes thus:


Despite wasting $1.6 million, Sarkeesian “hasn’t even begun to solve the problem,” and if you disagree with her, that’s because you don’t “care about the humanity of people.” Is anyone really surprised that sane people don’t want to support this fanatical ideologue?

Sooner or later the left’s useful idiots are no longer useful and thus not worth financing.


One of the most famous scenes in movies is where Don Corleone rebukes the undertaker asking for the death of those who harmed his daughter with the words: “That’s not justice your daughter is still alive.” I thought of this when I read this story:


 U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computer systems on Thursday as President Donald Trump backed away from plans for a more conventional military strike in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone, U.S. officials said Saturday.
Two officials told The Associated Press that the strikes were conducted with approval from Trump. A third official confirmed the broad outlines of the strike. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the operation.
The cyberattacks — a contingency plan developed over weeks amid escalating tensions — disabled Iranian computer systems that controlled its rocket and missile launchers, the officials said. Two of the officials said the attacks, which specifically targeted Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps computer system, were provided as options after Iranian forces blew up two oil tankers earlier this month.

It would have been so easy to hit Iran militarily, taken out a ship or two, destroy a few oil rigs over taking out our drone. Given the fact that Iran has been at war with us for decades any such attack would be more than justified, but the president decided that he would not spill blood for an attack on an unmanned drone.

Donald Trump has advanced the pro-life cause in many ways but this illustrated pro-life better than any other. It’s the most impressive thing I’ve seen from him as president.
