"The Truth About Alex Jones, Infowars, & The Trump Family"

David Seaman has had a fair bit of promotion on Objectivist Living, not that there's anything wrong with that. Here is his latest, from which you can glean a coherent narrative of his work.

Seaman had a recent appearance with the dean of American 'truther' media, Alex Jones, in a short and sweet update on the dread communication platform Twitter.

Truth, Truther, Truthest!

David Seaman is still beating the Pizzagate drum. In this video released yesterday, David takes on Aristotle's Wheel Paradox, er, the connection between dots and circles of Luciferian Pedophiles** ... and The Young Turks. The dots from which he makes his boogeyman are:

  1. The Young Turks received financial investment from a company led by Jeffrey Katzenberg.
  2. Katzenberg has some connection to John Podesta (whom David believes to be a Luciferian Pedophile**)
  3. The Young Turks are critical of President Trump
  4. ... click whir clunk
  5. "The Young Turks PIZZAGATE Ties Revealed"

_______________________________________________

** "Luciferian Pedophiles" are, in David's mind, an intergenerational sex-crime "family" that obeys Satan.  In other words, a Satanic Ritual Abuse cult, led by Soros and the Rothschilds. See this entry at Steemit for the full gen.

Care to expand upon that? 

And from traffic lights.

 

LOL...

That reminds me of a Trump joke.

Hillary Clinton called President Trump to say Supreme Court Judge Ginsburg had just passed away. "I would like to take her place," she said. The President replied, "Fine by me if it's OK with the funeral home."

I draw attention to the expansion joint in Jon's pithy phrase

Vigilante mobs lynching "them" aside, I am sure there are good points to make about  'great work' from David Seaman. I am interested in that kind of argument.

I think he has fallen for a "Satanic Panic," and has a slophouse approach to  epistemology. For me, his "work" on the cult is unpersuasive.  

I don't connect all the dots between slophouse epistemology and  Satanic Panic  (aside from the thrill of a good lynching) perhaps, but my experience during the Satanic Panic of the last century leaves me very skeptical of David Seaman's priors:  that an international satanic cult child abuse conspiracy is real, that John Podesta is a Luciferian pedophile, that it all ties together via Comet Ping Pong. 

I am willing to overlook that David believes in God and loathes the atheist, but I still am left wanting for warrants supporting his claims about the cult conspiracy. It's an interesting thing psychologically that he has cut himself off from skepticism entirely, that he figures Soros-funded trolls infest his Youtube comments, so that he has turned off commentary. It's kind of sad that he has not moved on from errors, not broken fresh ground on items of general interest to an Objectivish person. 

So, I keep him alive here at OL, hoping for deployment of sharp tools of reason ... 

While that Pollyanna thought digests, an OL exclusive! President Trump interviewed by Mike Huckabee. It's a love-in.

Let me do this by analogy.

With respect, thank you, no.

David Seaman is a guard dog and you keep bashing him for not being a horse.

Argument from analogy is fraught with -- how can I put this -- imperfection, especially whenever a false analogy is put forth. It can avoid construction of a more compelling argument. 

But thanks for dropping in.

William,

Especially if one has a prejudice and needs to keep his mind shut against the principle of charity or a different context.

But let me offer an unwanted perspective, anyway. :evil: 

Value comes from use.

People like me value folks like Seaman because they serve as guard dogs to uncover the shenanigans of elitists, governments, crony old-boys clubs, etc. And often some real danger (like massive surveillance state stuff and so on). 

People like you value like Seaman (or so it appears to me) because they serve as examples of the intellectual dreck people like me watch, which implies your mental capacities are superior to mine. And that feels awfully damn good.

Different uses lead to different valuations.

:)

I'm open to changing guard dogs, which is why I run hot and cold on them, and I don't mind when they are wrong. I keep them around for their bark and I love it when they shake up the ruling class when it has self-serving dishonest stuff to hide. When they get too far out there, I move on to other more interesting things and look in later.

I doubt you would ever be open to abandoning the thrill calling them and their audiences doofuses, though. Unless maybe you can display some magnanimous virtue in public and show that you truly pity them, poor things...

Once again, different uses and all...

:) 

Helpfully,

Michael

William,

btw - Don't mind me. I was feeling a little grumpy in the middle of the night.

I'm up and had my coffee now.

Yup.

And thank God that's the only one left.

But the grumpy remark was just making nice. I really wasn't grumpy when I wrote those things. Callous, maybe, but not grumpy.

Not completely on  topic, but kind of fun -- a Trumpian take on the retiring Senator from Tennessee, and his disrespect:

-- what triggered the man in White House?

Maybe this, retweeted four hundred thousand times:

But more likely this, from FoxNews

Quote

The tweet on Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was the latest jab in a war of words that's been building since the weekend. 

In his interview with the New York Times on Sunday, Corker, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the president has treated his office like “a reality show,” and is leading the U.S. down “the path to World War III.”

“He concerns me,” Corker said. “He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.” 

Trump and his allies have not backed down, with the president now giving Corker the same nickname treatment he gave 2016 GOP presidential primary rival Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. -- whom he tagged "Liddle Marco." 

Trump spelled out Rubio’s nickname to The New York Times last year, in the same way. 

“L-I-D-D-L-E. Liddle, Liddle, Liddle Marco,” he said.

As for Trump's claim that the Times set up Corker by recording him, New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin said both sides were actually recording.

“Corker has 2 aides on line, also recording, and they made sure after it ended that I was taping, too,” Martin tweeted Tuesday. 

Corker announced last month that he would not seek reelection in 2018 when his term ends.

The president over the weekend then claimed Corker had “begged” him for an endorsement, suggesting that's why he announced his retirement. 

“Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said “NO” and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement.)” Trump tweeted Sunday morning. “He also wanted to be Secretary of States, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal!”

Does this spat engender hoopla?  Yes.

Corker Told the Truth About Trump.  Now He Should Act on It.  —  Over the past few months, the country has been in a foul sort of trance.  Among people who work in politics, Republicans as well as Democrats, it is conventional wisdom that President Trump is staggeringly ill-informed, erratic, reckless and dishonest.

Does the President need every last Republican vote in the Senate to pass bills on tax reform and other priorities?  Maybe he does, but why let a legislative agenda a feud get in the way of a feud an agenda?

TYRANNO-SOROS REX: George Soros has transferred $18 billion – the bulk of his fortune, it seems – to his Open Society Foundation. This puts the Foundation second only in assets to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Twenty years ago, my friend Marlo Lewis wrote about how Soros was using self-contradiction to attack free-market economies, ignoring what free-market economists actually say: [...]
