Absolute Proof with more explanations

Mike Lindell talks to Steve Bannon about his movie and provides more detail and explanations

https://www.worldviewweekend.com/tv/video/screening-and-conversation-mike-lindell-about-documovie-absolute-proof-host-steve-bannon

The weakest part of absolute proof is the absolute proof given at the very end, the server logs showing intrusions from China. Mr. Bannon asks about this and Mr. Lindell is pretty evasive. But I listened carefully and it sounds like he is claiming he has 3 whistleblowers inside the government but can’t reveal them until the court cases go through. It would have been more believable if he just said this directly but I think Mr. Lindell wanted to be believed. I’m not sure I believe it myself at this point but we’ll find out soon enough.

It doesn’t matter that Trump is winning election lawsuits

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/trump-is-winning-election-lawsuits-in-case-you-havent-heard

If courts have discretion to not look at the evidence in a timely manner, and this means the cheater wins that case by default, then this means judges can choose who they want to win the election.

  1. Over half the lower courts chose not to not look at the evidence in a timely manner.
  2. The Supreme Court chose not to not look at the evidence.
  3. The States chose not to look at the evidence in a timely manner.
  4. Congress chose not look at the evidence.
  5. The FBI chose not look at the evidence.

The swamp isn’t going to drain itself. It doesn’t matter if Trump wins 100% of his remaining cases, or if Mike Lindell releases 100 movies.

This was a successful coup carried out by China, using our systems against us. Co-opt our freedom of speech to allow Marxist ideas in the universities. News media is allowed to lie, buy the media to spread disinformation. We have private companies involved in our election systems, invest in them to ensure weak election integrity.

China hacked payroll records of all government officials, so have had 7 years to blackmail who they needed to. This is why the FBI didn’t step in, and likely most of the judges. https://www.csoonline.com/article/3318238/the-opm-hack-explained-bad-security-practices-meet-chinas-captain-america.html

Mike Lindell: Absolute Proof

https://rumble.com/vdlebn-mike-lindell-absolute-proof-exposing-election-fraud-and-the-theft-of-americ.html

Lindell’s movie should have spent 75% of time on credibility and 25% on claims, but it was more like 5% credibility and 95% claims. The weak claims were bunched together with the strong ones. If someone with an open mind wanted to check one of the claims, the first ‘fact check’ would show the claim being false, which is why credibility was so important. If the point of the movie was to make people mad, it succeeded, but if the point was to change minds, it’s a failure.

Dr. Steve Pieczenik claims Trump is still president

https://www.infowars.com/posts/dr-steve-pieczenik-returns-claims-trump-is-still-president/

It’s worth watching but here’s a summary of Dr. Steve Pieczenik’ claims. President Trump’s actions follows the pattern of a coup. President Trump declared martial law before leaving office. He has retained control of the military but is waiting for the right time, but we don’t know when that will be. He is letting the crooks, including Mr. Biden giving themselves enough rope to hang themselves (FBI: this is an idiom, I am not saying to literally hang Mr. Biden).

My commentary: If true, this does explain some of President Trump’s unusual actions.

  1. Declare the office of the former president. Why? Source: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-office-of-the-former-president-b1792583.html
  2. President Trump will not testify at impeachment. The impeachment hearing would be a great opportunity to get the final word in about election fraud, but if he really didn’t want to be impeached it would be better to not testify. Source: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-impeachment-testify-senate-trial-b1797886.html
  3. President Trump has been uncharacteristically silent since leaving office. Source: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-55008828
  4. President Trump did not hand Mr. Biden the nuclear football at the inauguration ceremony. Did this ever actually occur? Source https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-won-t-hand-biden-nuclear-football-here-s-how-n1254825
  5. If President Trump wanted to reduce civil strife over retaining the office, this is a good way to do it. Mr. Biden has been destroying his popularity such as shutting down the Keystone Pipeline, halting work on the border wall which we still have to pay for anyway, or going after the 2nd amendment. Even Antifa and BLM says they were just being used and have started rioting again.

  7. Was China planning a military attack on the capital on inauguration day if Trump retained power? Why else have 25,000 to 30,000 troops there? Why in the world would you have F-16 fighters and patriot missile batteries for protestors? Source:

Boycott Bed Bath and Beyond and Kohls

Boycott Bed Bath and Beyond and Kohls stopped selling My Pillow. Patriots need to support each other from censorship and make these companies regret opposing freedom and democracy. I will no longer shop at, and encourage others, to boycott Bed Bath and Beyond and Kohls. If you need pillows, towels, robes, sheets, or other products My Pillow Sells, please buy from them directly.

Chance for the 2024 election?

Suppose I am the much stronger player in a game of basketball, but my opponent hacks the scoreboard to give himself the win. The majority of the people in the crowd question the outcome, but they get their microphones cut off. The major commentators and other referees in the game congratulate my opponent on his fair win. For the rematch we use the same scoreboard as before. My opponent was not punished for changing the scores the last game; on the contrary he gets promoted to head referee. He immediately starts implementing rules to make future scores easier to change, for example by no longer keeping log files.

It’s inconceivable and mind-boggling in this hypothetical scenario to put any hopes on the next game of basketball; you’d be a fool to even play. Yet if you replace basketball with election, this is what is happening right now! I don’t understand how I’m the only one who can see this and even popular commentators like Steven Crowder keep talking about the next election. Either everyone else knows something I don’t, or it’s some kind of willful blindness because they aren’t willing to accept what this really means for America and democracy.

Nobody has even put forth this question that I’ve seen, much less offered any kind of explanation.

Can someone explain?

Where are the 2020 election protests?

After Biden was inaugurated I expected to see widespread protests across the country and either they are not happening or they are not being reported on.

If ones believe all these things, then it makes no sense to me why any American who cares about democracy would not be out protesting.

  1. Democracy is important. To some it only matters that their guy won, fair or not, and the sad truth is many people actually hold this position. They won’t usually straight up say it, but will argue against any kind of audit or transparency.
  2. There is serious evidence of election fraud, enough to change the results. Note: I did not say PROOF, only evidence. If there is evidence, it deserves to be looked at because democracies demand openness. In fact there is a lot of evidence. Use Duck Duck Go and search for 2020 election fraud
    https://www.rightwirereport.com/2020/12/04/summary-portal-of-alleged-election-fraud-in-2020/
    https://theconservativebunker.com/2020-election-fraud-summary-by-state/
  3. Bellwether counties, which consistently voted for the winner for the past 40 years, voted for Trump unanimously https://www.wnd.com/2020/11/bellwether-counties-picked-trump-2020-election/
  4. Very strong statistical evidence of voter fraud, which does not directly mean there is fraud, but that it should be looked for seriously
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/2020/11/10/statistical_evidence_points_to_fraud_in_key_swing_states_528969.html#!
    https://www.newsmax.com/bruceabramson/fraud/2020/11/13/id/996950/
    https://noqreport.com/2020/11/24/here-is-the-evidence-of-election-fraud/
    https://ideasanddata.wordpress.com/2020/11/10/evidence-of-voter-fraud-in-the-2020-us-presidential-election/
  5. The voting machines themselves were designed to influence results. Among other things, with mail in ballots and signature adjudication there was no paper trail https://www.ntd.com/dominion-voting-machines-designed-to-influence-results-forensics-report_540449.html
  6. The election fraud evidence was not seriously looked at by the lower courts. Viva Frei and Robert Barnes go into this on Youtube, and while I can’t find the immediate link, the gist of it is only one time signature match audits were conducted. By the democrat’s own witness there was massive fraud far exceeding the legal standard. The judge then changed the signature match standards to something impossible to meet, so the case could not proceed http://nynettle.info/2020/11/19/breaking-top-lawyer-releases-archive-of-2020-fraud-evidence/
  7. The election fraud evidence was not looked at at all by the Supreme court. The case was brought by Texas, who argued that since the case affects Texans, they have standing to argue the election results and process in other states. This was dismissed without consideration. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/12/11/supreme-court-dismisses-texas-2020-election-challenge-alito-and-thomas-disagree/
  8. The election fraud evidence was not looked at by congress. The states themselves asked for a 10 day audit before the electoral college, and this was denied by Mike Pence despite there being precedent for it. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/johnson-says-approval-of-electoral-commission-is-a-long-shot-at-best-despite-support
    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/05/us/politics/pence-trump-election-results.html
  9. If an election cannot be held in a fully transparent and fair manner in 2020 when the executive branch is trying to fight the alleged fraud, one shouldn’t expect a fair election in 2024 when the party that won through the alleged fraud is fully in power. The states may step in and help here, but if they failed in 2020 why would they succeed in 2024 when the odds are stacked against them?

To show that our democracy is at risk you don’t have to believe or prove there was election fraud, only that the allegations of fraud were not seriously looked at.

  1. There is no dispute that the Supreme Court did not take the case where they could have reviewed the election fraud allegations.
  2. There is no dispute that Congress did not look at the election fraud allegations.
  3. There is no dispute that, right or wrong, it was the democratic party that was accused by President Trump of voter fraud.
  4. There is no dispute that the party accused of fraud now control both congress and the presidency.

I believe if this were a criminal trial, with as many questions as there are about the conduct of the judges and prosecutors, the case would be thrown or or subject to a retrial.

Back to the question I asked at the beginning of this blog post, why are people not protesting? Is it the fear of the leftist mob, who unpersons anyone who speaks up? Let your neighbors be rounded up, as long as you are safe for a while longer?

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a socialist
.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Where are our leaders? Where our are soldiers and generals who still care about democracy? The only people that seem to be fighting for us are a woman Sidney Powell, a pillow company CEO Mike Lindell, and 2 old lawyers Lin Wood and Rudy Giuliani. For sticking their necks out and standing up for freedom these patriot’s lives and business are censored and destroyed by leftist mob. You’d think former secret service like Dan Bongino, a stanch ally of freedom, would stand up and lead the charge. He doesn’t strike me as the type to be afraid of the leftist mob or much of anything else. Yet, unless I missed it, I didn’t see any calls to protest in his show, or a declaration that the election is unacceptable and we won’t just accept it and move on.

If we don’t make a stand for democracy now, then when? After Biden takes our guns (I’m not calling for violence, I am saying our rights are being eroded, including the rights to bear arms)? After he replaces the military with only his own political supporters? After we are fully censored and have no way to organize? In 4 years, when congress has passed laws to make fraud even easier (https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/sen-sherrod-brown-supports-bill-allowing-nationwide-voting-at-home/) (https://www.brown.senate.gov/newsroom/press/release/brown-introduces-vote-at-home-bill)? By the way, how many likely stolen elections are acceptable?

What are the first actions of a nation turning to a dictatorship? Would it be consolidate power, disarm the populace, censor the media, and replace the military with one’s own supporters? Strange coincidence.

I’m not rich, a soldier, or famous. I don’t have any real power. I was already censored from nextdoor.com for trying to organize a protest. But I want my children to grow up in a democracy, so I’ll be protesting this weekend, even if it’s just me standing alone.

Update 1/28/2021: Someone on reddit recommended How DJT Lost the White House to me. I haven’t had a chance to read through it fully yet but it looks like a good reference.

The Epic Games Store doesn’t deserve the hate it is getting

I don’t quite follow why there is so much hate for the Epic Games store. I understand the criticisms about it having fewer features than Steam and exclusives. But all other storefronts also have fewer features, and some also have exclusives. Why not the same rants and calls to boycott the other stores?

More competition is a good thing, both for consumers and developers.

According to what I have read online, most online stores besides the Epic Games store take around 30% of gross. Suppose your game makes a 50% profit on the development costs. For illustration, we’ll say the game costs 1 million to makes and grosses 1.5 million. 30% of 1.5 million leaves the developer 1.05 million, a profit of $50,000. In other words, even with a profit margin of 50%, the owners did not even make enough to pay themselves what they would have made working at some other job. They made less than they would have even earned if they had just invested the 1 million in something else.

I’ve read “I don’t care about the revenue split for developers, I just want a good store.” But you should care about developers, as they are the ones making the games! Even if the developer does not charge less for the game it still helps the players because that developer who only make $50,000 before and has to shut down the company now made $180,000 and while they are not rolling in cash, at least they made back the time they worked on the game and can risk making another.

Early impressions of Unity

Unity  5.4.1 initial pros and cons, from someone learning it

Pros (in order of importance):
1. The documentation is pretty good, but the forums are awesome. With so many users, nearly any question you have someone else already had. The forum users are active and helpful, and will often paste the code answer directly.
2. Because the basics are easy, it’s easy to debug basic errors. For example, drawing rays so you can view the normals on a mesh, rendering to a texture, or throwing debug buttons in the editor.
3. The price is amazingly cheap for a game engine of the quality. Back in the old days game engines with a complete toolset were hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. You don’t get source at the cheaper levels, but so far I haven’t felt the need for it.
4. The asset store is great, which a wide range of tools, and extremely cheapl. It’s programmer time for free to (usually) under $100.
5. Many major companies have official add-ins for Unity, so you aren’t too limited in major 3rd party support.
6. Unity is relatively friendly to beginners. For example, if you delete all lights from the scene you aren’t just left with a black screen. You are helped through common mistakes such as using material instead of sharedMaterial.
7. Direct support of native file formats for major artist tools is great. I think in practice you will want to export for faster speeds, but during prototyping it’s very convenient.
8. Despite the price, it is possible to make high-end graphics for high-end games.
9. Supports a huge number of platforms.

Cons (in order of importance):
1. GameObject is the basis of everything in your scene, but GameObjects are slow. Because all subcomponents are part of GameObject, this leads to conflicting requirements. For example, if you want to render a lot of terrain it’s better to break things up for rendering but for Physics it’s better to use fewer large colliders.
2. The standard shader is conditionally compiled such that it is optimized for the target platform (which is great) but you can’t extend it without losing that, especially important for mobile.
3. Not sure if Unity is still using RakNet, but many superior features of RakNet were left out. For example: automatic peer to peer host migration (no handshaking necessary), UPNP (which removes the need to pay Unity or limit concurrent players), and hosting your own servers without a source license.
4. The Visual Studio integration is buggy.
5. Unity uses a left handed coordinate system, which doesn’t match Max or Maya

Except for the GameObject performance, the cons are minor compared to the pros. Overall Unity is a good choice for game development.

Vastly different contractor pricing again

I have to replace a 32 3/8 x 54 5/8 x 3/8 pane of tempered glass in my shower. The Glass Guru quoted me $467.08. The Glass Doctor quoted $800 even.

As I wrote about in http://www.rakkar.org/blog/?p=619 I’m really surprised at the range of prices when getting quotes. You’d think that since material and labor costs are similar, prices would be comparable between competing companies. With car shopping you don’t see one dealership sell a car for $46,700 and another dealership across the street sell that same car for $80,000 but that is essentially what is happening here.
