Phase 1 of operation 'fuckwad UCP' is complete

I actually meant to declare phase 1 of operation fuckwad UCP complete weeks ago but then the US riots happened and well, priorities right? Readers will know that I have hinted at a guerrilla offensive against the fuckwad UCP for some time. Since my very first post when I began writing again actually. And then again here in 'What Jason Kenney and the UCP fear most'.

Astute observers of my Twitter activities may have noticed that I have nearly exclusively focused on replying to the "issue managers" and "press secretaries" and have repeatedly written about how they are the frontline of defense such as in 'Left or Right, infinite growth is the enemy and why de-platforming is a fatal mistake'.

Now that I believe phase 1 is complete, I feel I can talk about it.

First, some history.

Many moons ago during the Harper era I was associated with some "progressives" on Twitter I won't mention by name. They wanted to get involved in political action and so like most political organizations that want to lead political change they started making labels. Creating memberships. Making a "name". I opposed this strategy because it's been proven to fail over and over. It's only marginally effective with leaders actually interested in democracy and it is not effective when you have leaders that are not.

In the end, due to my stance we had a falling out. I'm still not exactly sure why it was so threatening, my only conclusion being that in the end they weren't interested in actually fighting the system or in trying to actually make a difference. It was superficial. The dark truth hidden underneath was building the brand was so important because the real desire was to have followers. Listeners. A little mini empire to complain about the big one. To lead.

Do you know why I love V for Vendetta? And why I find it to be such a powerful movie? V doesn't lead the people, he pushes them. When they show up at the parliament at the end of the film to watch it's destruction he is not there in front of them leading the charge. He did not tell them to put on the masks.

Instead V sets the stage and allows their own self determination along with the obvious criminality to drive events. Visualized just prior to the big event with the scene of the dominoes falling.

Fuck leaders. As the famous quote from the movie goes "ideas are bullet proof".

Leaders can be co-opted and have their character assassinated. So can organizations, movements, groups. The system is expert in dealing with and dismantling these forms of opposition. But an idea? We've seen the power of an idea with George Floyd where the undeniable criminality displayed in his murder video fuels an idea of criminality so powerful that it drowns out the system's propaganda. That it propelled people into the streets (and still is).

The idea in that video is much bigger than "Black Lives Matter". This is why it has been so important for the right-wing faction popularized by Candace Owens to remind people what a criminal he was. It's to muddy the waters. To destroy the idea that is driving events because unlike "Black Lives Matter", the idea seen in that video can not be forgotten as Dave Chapelle discussed in his 8:46 presentation.

My offensive against the fuckwad UCP is based in this understanding.

My trolling of the UCP issue managers has been very specific: 90% of it I focus on their salary. The other 10% spent on the IDU and Kenney's plans. And along with writing my posts. The objective has been that thru months of repetition I'd hope to draw focus to these inconsistencies. The idea has been to not even entertain whatever it is they are discussing, unless extremely sarcastically. Instead focus on them as much like with the system's attacks on opposition to the ingrained inequality they are the easiest surface of attack.

This may sound cheap but they are not there to debate in good faith anyway so the point is moot. The first objective in this regard has been simple: help push the discussion towards it. This has the effect of disabling Kenney's front line of defense as by keeping this discussion front and center every tweet they write ends up working against them by the fact they're being paid excessive tax dollars to write it.

It's my opinion at this point in time they have been effectively rendered useless, which may explain why they are suddenly on a block frenzy.

A few days ago I actually was having a discussion with Kim Siever about how the UCP tends to favor not blocking. For a year straight their issue managers and press secretaries have been giving stupid take after stupid take and getting ratioed into oblivion with few blocks (I'm not saying *none* but given the anger the UCP's liquidation of Alberta invokes you'd expect a lot more).

Well, here is where we are at now:
Which brings us to the second objective: drive them towards doing things that discredit themselves. Again, accomplished through repetition. Somewhere inside their rotten exterior there is a human that is fully aware what they are doing and covering up is wrong. When called on it enough eventually the mask comes off and they pick a side.

The issue managers are a laughing stock. Left and right both find them absurd.
Now I don't know if I pushed these objectives, or not. That's the point. That's why it's so important I remain an underground blogger as it allows me to remain too small a target to attack without attracting even more attention to the ideas I put forward. This allows seeds to be planted, and ideas to flourish.

Now commencing phase 2 of operation 'fuckwad UCP'

The real war is the information war and it has very much begun

I think I'm ready to write about these protests or given Donald Trump has invoked the insurrection act perhaps I'll call this an insurrection now. I must apologize to Albertans as I'm having to divert from my offensive against the fuckwad UCP to focus on the deteriorating situation in the United States. I also apologize to those who were following my Learn to Code series as what little time I have had to code with everything going on has gone towards work and my own projects (I'm working on something special for the #ableg crowd, and a game with my son).

These events have me seriously sick to my stomach and this will probably be my last post for awhile as I try to recuperate my energy. Even as someone who has been writing about and warning about this type of thing happening it's still surreal to witness. This is truly history in the making.

I did have a number of Alberta-centric posts lined up but I don't feel now is the most effective time to be discussing them and events in the US have potential to wildly change the trajectory of events here in Alberta. We might touch on Bill 1 a bit here but I dunno, I guess we will see where my current train of thought leads me.

I'm very concerned for our American sisters and brothers. I'm seeing the protests languish without clear direction and demands and under the pressure of the state to get back in line. If Americans allow themselves to get back in line though this will be the end of the US as we know it. It will not return to "normal", not now, not after the police have been allowed to put the blatant criminality of the police state that has been building for decades on display for everyone to see. This is the last chance the Americans have to dismantle it and it's really not a very good one.

Now that the pandora's box of a militarized police state has been opened on Americans, you can't just close it. You think they're going to go back to "free (to consume) America" if the looting they're not even trying to combat goes away? No, no, the criminals in control have come too far now. It's all or nothing and I don't mean "go vote".

If "voting" could have solved this I'd have thought Barack Obama would have been the best bet. Do any of you honestly think Joe Biden if he gets into power will change anything? This police state in it's current form came into effect with George Bush, Obama expanded it. Biden will dismantle it? Yea right. The DNC ran Tulsi Gabbard into the ground for suggesting the US engages in regime change wars. Remember that?

The government has declared war on you, American citizens, whether you want war or not. This is not news I take pleasure in delivering to you but I see you on the verge of something truly horrid. The US is the largest military empire in the world's history and it's turning it's sights inward now. The US is cannibalizing itself and in the shadows a new empire is rising.

America's militias - the citizen defense against the government - and right-wing have been manipulated into supporting the very police state they've been prepping for and warning about themselves. Take for instance TrumpTV (Infowars) that used to warn about the encroaching police state and now celebrates it.
No joke, I'm not going to try to push Alex Jones down your throat this is purely for comparative example so watch these or don't the point should come across either way.

Under Bill Clinton Infowars produced Police State 2000. Under George W. Bush they produced Police State 2 & Police State 3. And under Barrack Obama Police State 4. Say what you will about Alex Jones and his clear Trump bootlicking he is doing now but how many of you were warning about what's happening now 20 years ago?

Unfortunately, much as Michael C. Ruppert and Bill Cooper warned Alex Jones is a shill and is now helping to pacify America's last lines of defense against the police state he has been preparing "patriots" for for decades. And why? Because they're petty racist fucks that would actually rather play KKK vigilante than defend their country and their citizens regardless of color because their hatred for Black Lives Matter and "Antifa", amplified by the lame Soros funded protester conspiracy excuse for their hatred along with their strong belief in Trump's heroism reinforced by the QAnon psyop, blinds them to the truth of what is happening here. A conspiracy of which the Krause conspiracy is loosely based upon by the way.

Americans have been caught with their pants down, divided, and economically devastated.

Like folks, come on, I'm still seeing so many of you acting like democracy still exists saying that it's "a few bad actors". No it isn't! The systemic repression of the innocent is systematic in the current state its that there is a few good actors.

Theres thousands of pictures and videos of looting, riots, and protester violence.

Theres thousands of pictures and videos of police attacking the innocent.

I challenge you dear reader to find me 5 pictures or videos of police taking on the looters. It should be easy right? And I'm not talking about a stand off with a protester line where projectiles are thrown that's not looting. I'm talking about find me a picture where they kettle people looting or burning a store or taking on a mob. Go on, should be easy right if the "police are there to stop the violence".

Or.. is it all this?
Which is it? The only one here reading this and making up your mind is you. Can you be honest with yourself about what's going on? Why can a retired real good cop try to take on looters, but the armored battalions of political enforcers terrorizing the streets can't?
It's not easy. It's surreal. Unbelievable. But.. it's happening, isn't it?

You know what a real good actor would do? Resign in protest and stand and defend the protesters against the criminality. Standing around protecting the status-quo not being as shitty as everyone else on the same side of "the blue line" is cowardly and half-assed.
But the real war that's being waged here is the information war.

One tweet of mine I was going to use for this post originally was a comment I had made on a picture of police posing by a flag pole that had previously supported the American flag, being replaced with their "blue line" flag. In the tweet I said "the police have a message they're trying to tell you Americans, it's the same message they're telling you by attacking the innocent and media".

One of the most infamous lines from the Canadian G20 was when a cop replied to a protester who's rights he had just violated: "this isn't Canada anymore". That is the message the American police are trying to show you, "this isn't America anymore", and I suspect why out of all the tweets in my timeline that could be removed that one was: it hit a little too close to home. I'm not sure if any other tweets are missing I'm debating writing an application that can track that for me. If there is interest in such an application let me know.
Do you see them giving the message?
How about now?
You sure you're not seeing the message? It's written all over the Blackwater mercs' murderous faces.

All of you dumb motherfuckers going "well what about the riots" better wake up quick. They're not targeting the rioters, they're letting them run rampant as justification to go after YOU. Prove me wrong. It's a frightening situation but the situation none-the-less.

I've spent the last day reflecting on the events I witnessed (or didn't witness) with the DC blackout. There is still no footage or anything from that night and that is truly frightening. Washington DC, the capitol of the US, in an instant was able to iron curtain their shit and deploy a counter propaganda campaign to drown out those of us who noticed. The hijacking of hundreds of Twitter accounts broadcasting propaganda to discredit the hashtag was particularly disturbing.

As someone with a technical background there is really only two possibilities for how that could be accomplished: either an actor basically has access to Twitter's entire system and the entire site has been compromised. Or it was the state and Twitter itself. That many accounts could not have been hacked that quickly on an individual basis. Someone had access to the system itself.

This tells me that when it comes to the information they want to control the state has full power. They were able to discredit and destroy news of the DC blackout with bullshit articles and strawman arguments before anyone who witnessed it could speak out. They re-wrote history before my eyes with an extremely advanced propaganda campaign and completely diverted the attention even of BLM themselves away from the well being of the DC protesters focusing instead on "did the city loose phone and internet" which is not what any of us were claiming happened anyway it was clearly local area jammers and it happened when most people were sleeping.

That is the true war that is being fought, not a war on the ground but a war in the mind. The news media may be broadcasting some of what is happening but they are certainly suppressing other parts. Shit is so fucking ass backwards now people are celebrating George W. Bush's bullshit platitudes! Like OH MY FUCKING GOD GUYS you know George W. Bush is the fucking asshole the pushed through the patriot act which armed all these cops attacking you right?

If the insurrection doesn't reach a focal point soon the state is going to tear the population apart. Peter Joseph suggests that the symbolic resignation of Trump is the proper demand.
I usually agree with Peter's takes on activism but not this time. Trump is never going to resign, there will be no admittance from the US government that they were in the wrong. And even if Trump did get out he would be replaced by someone else that will perpetuate the system. The fake win will take the momentum out of the protest and no one will have thought about what comes next.

Other ideas I have seen floated is a systemic overhaul and review of policing and other nonsense that acts as though the police in the US have not become a defacto army that is at the moment brutally attacking their own citizens. What exactly is going to be reformed?

So what does that leave? Justice for George Floyd? What does that even looks like in the midst of all this criminality?

No the demand of the protests must be simple, symbolic, and a real blow to the system and also something that can be done without Trump. Something that results in lasting change.

My suggestion:

Yes.. demand Trump's resignation, but a real demand is the repeal of the Patriot Act. It's a simple ask that would have lasting repercussions across the entire system. It would be a major blow to the police state and a good first step in real systemic reform because so long as the Patriot Act exists the police are under the command & control of Homeland Security. It would also help begin to repair the systemic militaristic racism the US has foisted on the world with it's "war on terror".

The burning children know it's all a game.

UPDATE-11 (FINAL UPDATE): There has been no word from any DC protester since the White House entered creep mode at 1AM #dcblackout


Based on the information I have been able to gather and several confirming stories along with confirmation video it is my conclusion that the DC protesters were likely taken in under a mass arrest and probably using the NDAA or similar indefinite detention measures. (Which is why no one has heard from them and likely why they would cut livestreams and comms before the arrest - so you don't know where they are). I will update this post if new information arises.

Stay Strong.


Image allegdly showing FBI troops with live ammunition weapons in Washington DC during the communications blackout.
The most intense protests in Washington D.C.'s history just fell silent.

At 1AM EST the White House entered creep mode, and all live streams and communications with the protesters there were lost.
There has been no word from any of them, all of the streams in the area are down.
News media is reporting as normal with one literally expecting everyone to believe that "the protesters respected the curfew and went home".
So far there are no  recordings, no record of any kind of what happened after that moment and how the streets became empty. Did the White House literally just 'disappear' the entire protest?

Please comment any information you have regarding the situation in DC.

In addition I'll add that during the night I was chatting with a user on a youtube channel that claimed to be in DC listening on HAM radio and was reporting that live ammunition was being used. I can't verify if he was bullshitting me or not.
The above tweet was deleted by Twitter. Replacement:


Can't verify obviously, but something definitely happened in DC last night. And it was something big.


Twitter is moderating the #dcblackout hashtag like wildfire. And numerous "people" are claiming it's a "disinformation campaign". It absolutely is not. I have been trying to communicate with protesters in DC all night they CAN NOT  be reached. NO ONE has an answer about where they went.

As the rate of tweet deletion is nuts regarding this topic information is even less reliable.

There have been reports of some sort of a loud explosion or boom in the NE portion of the city.

A user rejoined twitter to "say the truth". Obviously I can't verify, I've taken a screenshot of this one:


The real disinformation campaign being waged is the one insisting nothing happened.


WOW! I have never seen this before. People's accounts are literally being hacked in real time to tweet messages discrediting the hashtag!

Nearly 8 hours later and I have finally found someone that claims they were present at the time:
I'm not exactly convinced.

The live traffic feeds are clearly fake. All live video is either faked, looped, or disconnected. Still no live streams, and aside from this one guy still no words from protesters.

Not even a "hey yea we're ok".


Nevermind, it's events after 1AM we are interested in.


More video allegedly from after 1AM in DC:

Finally some solid video showing that protesters allegedly dispersed immediately after the lights went out. It doesn't explain why there was a media blackout that took out the live streams however, nor why those of us who were working through the night could not contact anyone in DC. I remain suspicious.


A legal source in DC associated with their cases claims they have been mass arrested.
