Chuck C. Johnson Says He’s Advising the Trump Administration on Nominees - and He’s a Holocaust Denier

No way to spin this
Wingnuts • Views: 53,400

Cyberstalker and harassment specialist Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME) has been bragging lately about his connections to the Trump administration, even threatening on Facebook to use them to get even with Twitter for banning his Wesearchr scam site.

It’s difficult to say how extensive those connections really are, but there’s no doubt he has friends in the Trump White House; he used to write for Breitbart “News,” was seen in the VIP section at the GOP convention, and has been at several recent Trump events. And Forbes magazine recently claimed that several sources inside the Trump team told them Johnson was advising on possible cabinet nominees.

The reason why I’m writing about this loathsome character again: yesterday he did an “Ask Me Anything” in Reddit’s “altright” (read: neo-Nazi) section — and came all the way out as a Holocaust denier. Here’s the exchange. (The term “JQ” is a neo-Nazi abbreviation for “Jewish Question.”)

justacolyte:
what are your thoughts on the Holocaust, WW2, and the JQ in general?

ChuckCJohnson:
I do not and never have believed the six million figure. I think the Red Cross numbers of 250,000 dead in the camps from typhus are more realistic. I think the Allied bombing of Germany was a ware crime. I agree with David Cole about Auschwitz and the gas chambers not being real. I read the German War (highly recommend), Bloodlands, Mein Kampf, and all of David Irving. I’m more or less of the view that the war was an outgrowth of the efforts of communism to spread itself throughout the world. I also believe that the fears of German extermination were not misplaced, especially in light of the Ukrainian famine. But I support Israel as a Jewish state and Zionism as a concept. I’m pro-ethno state, generally. I understand why and how Hitler rose to power but think too much of our focus on World War II is spent trying to understand Hitler and not enough is spent trying to understand Weimar. Mecius Moldbug, aka Curtis Yarvin, is right. America is a communist country.

So there you have it, in black and white, no way to spin this. A person who’s closely connected with the Trump administration, and who may even be advising them on government nominees, is a low-life Holocaust denier who thinks the Allied bombing of Germany in WWII was a “ware [sic] crime.”

Is this surprising? Not really. Chuck C. Johnson has made no secret of his white supremacist ideology for quite a while, but it’s notable because it’s the first time he’s gone on the public record as a Holocaust denier — and because he’s clearly doing something with the Trump administration.

UPDATE at 1/27/17 10:59:27 am by Charles Johnson

And from that same AMA, here’s Chuck boasting that he was asked to be in the Trump administration, but chose to “work to fill it with friends and allies.”

I essentially had a choice between being in the Trump administration or working to fill it with friends and allies. I have tried to get some of the most qualified people in the country into the government. So far, so good. Much more work to go.

Trump is the beginning of roll back. He is not the end point. Any movement that bets on the heart beat of a 70 year old who is hated isn’t going to go very far. This is ultimately why Trumpism is a dead end.

The smartest way you can change the world is to try to red pill the children of eminent/powerful men. This is especially true if you can’t red pill the men themselves. Ask lots of questions. Suggest lots of books. Really powerful people know that there’s something wrong with the world. Help them see the answers.

(South China Morning Post)

China steps up preparations for possible military conflict with the US.

China is stepping up preparedness for a possible military conflict with the US as the Donald Trump presidency has increased the risk of hostilities breaking out, state media and military observers said.

Beijing is bracing itself for a possible deterioration in Sino-US ties, with a particular emphasis on maritime security.

The People’s Liberation Army said in a commentary on its official website last Friday, the day of Trump’s inauguration, that the chances of war have become “more real” amid a more complex security situation in Asia Pacific.

The commentary written by an official at the national defence mobilisation department in the Central Military Commission said the call for a US rebalancing of its strategy in Asia, military deployments in the East and South China Seas and the instillation of a missile defence system in South Korea were hot spots getting closer to ignition.

This is a guy who seriously doesn’t get what his powers are and what his rights and responsibilities are as the Commander in Chief to not even suggest torturing, which is against the Geneva Conventions.

There are damned good reasons not to torture people - mostly because we don’t want our troops tortured or mistreated. There’s also the fact that torture simply doesn’t work as coerced info isn’t likely to be accurate or timely.

But the idiots who think 24 is factual don’t get that torture doesn’t work. People will say anything to stop the torture. They will tell the torturer what they think they want to hear, even when they don’t know anything of use.

From that same AMA, here’s Chuck boasting that he was asked to be in the Trump administration, but chose to “work to fill it with friends and allies.”

This quote from Chuck regarding “red pilling” comes straight out of the militant white nationalist playbook - the term is for those who are fully on board with racial hatred and are willing to follow in the footsteps of individuals like Anders Breivik or Dylann Roof in an attempt to trigger a full-blown race war.

The smartest way you can change the world is to try to red pill the children of eminent/powerful men. This is especially true if you can’t red pill the men themselves. Ask lots of questions.

Lest we forget, only yesterday Mr. Trump signed an executive order requiring weekly publication of “immigrant crimes,” similar to the Criminal Jew publication put out by Nazi Germany:

independent.co.uk

Donald Trump has ordered his new administration to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by immigrants.

The US President’s sweeping new executive order on immigration, which he signed on the fifth day of his presidency, includes a paragraph mandating the Secretary for Homeland Security to “make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens” in the US.

The list will also include details of so-called “sanctuary cities” that refuse to hand over immigrant residents for deportation.

Hey, POTUS Fuckface von Cocksplat,

It’s time for another love note from Occupied America. The theme this time will be insults, you incompressible jizztrumpet.

I’m sure you don’t mind, since you insulted your way to the Oval Office and anything you or the Republicans have ever done is totally a legitimate way to seek or gain power. You are a dumpster fire that has surrounded himself with flaming turds from lethally diseased pigs.

Your pathetic attempts to increase your hand size in a recent photo have been duly noted with much derision all around. There is nothing you can do to alter the fact that your inauguration crowd size and vote totals were pathetic compared to those of the black guy. I wouldn’t dwell on this issue, except that you seem to regard it as being the most important political issue of the past few days. Are you an idiot, or do you just play one on TV?

I don’t think you get how truly you are despised, because you hang out with wingnuts, and wingnuts are professionally outraged all the time by fake bullshit like Obaba supposedly not being an American citizen. Outrage based on a foundation of lies and bullshit is always weakened by that foundation because what kind of mental defective truly believes that shit? You just say it because it is politically useful.

There is no comparison between wingnut outrage and the outrage of rational people who see you, your administration and your party systematically trying to end everything that is good about America while fostering all of the ugliest parts of America.

In hopes this finds you obsessing endlessly over your innumerable issues to the detriment of your health, eat shit and die.

You’re not seeing an original source image here. You’re seeing a picture taken by a TV camera of a photo hanging on a wall, which is then processed for broadcast. And even 1080p TV images are compressed and processed before they’re broadcast.

So again, you’re seeing an image that isn’t the original, and that’s been through several stages of processing and compression. This is not a good comparison at all, and I think Philip Bump’s GIF pretty much ends the debate. It isn’t shopped.

Texas state legislator infuriates Muslims in Texas with a “survey” he mailed and asked them to sign along with contact information, in which he essentially asks are you a) a little bit radical, b) a whole lot radical c) off-the-scale radical.

nytimes.com

The sender, as noted in the return address, was State Representative Kyle Biedermann, a central Texas hardware store owner who had officially become a member of the Legislature less than a month earlier. More than 400 surveys went out. Only one came back, Mr. Biedermann said.

One question asked if the respondent would support a pledge for religious freedom and safety from harm for former Muslims. Another asked if the Muslim Brotherhood should be declared a terrorist organization. The survey also asked if the respondent supported the Muslim Reform Movement, which espouses opposition to “violent jihad” or “violent Islamic extremism.”

Bee Moorhead, executive director of Texas Impact, a statewide religious advocacy network that includes Christians, Jews and Muslims, said the group sent a letter to mosques and Muslim organizations urging them to disregard the survey. “What’s wrong with it is that an elected official in a position of power sent out that letter in a way that would have made someone think the survey was an official piece of business of the State of Texas,” Ms. Moorhead said in an interview. “It was an intimidating and misleading piece of communication on the part of a public servant.”

If I was making the hand bigger, I would not use the Photoshop warp tool. If I had to do it and I was being paid, I would first see if I could get a higher resolution original image that was larger (thus more resolution) than the final I needed. Then you have enough resolution to work with.

I would then “draw” a proper path to select just the hand from the larger image and then paste it over the smaller hand but on it’s own Photoshop document layer.

I then would get it to size I want. Then I would duplicate the layer so that I have an original and now a working layer. You never know when you go too far, so I always keep layers I can go back to to start over with the mods.

On the new layer I then work with the eraser tool and clone tool to make sure I blended it into the background. so you can’t see the mod. By feathering the edge with the eraser set at a low rate of pixel elimination you can blend the overlay into the background.

The clone tool allows you to add pixels you might need to get the backgrounds to match back up, etc. It all depends on what is needed.

Then if needed, a little blurring to get it softer to match the focus and sharpness of the original and a little extra “noise” to match the “grain” of the original.

If that guy is from Disney, he is cutting corners in my estimation. Paths give you way more control. Warping is fun for sure, but it is hard to control if you want a natural look.

If you have the time, you can work an image to the point no one can tell.

I did a photo for a good client where I had to add a person to a group of ladies sitting on a staircase. One of the members of the club wasn’t able to make their get-together but my client wanted her in the photo. She gave me some images of the missing woman and I ‘shopped her into the image. The client showed some of her friends the finished shop and asked them to point out who was added. None of them picked the woman that was added. I was happy to have fooled them.

I love Photoshop! I was lucky to have run the dark room at the Art College I attended so I learned the old ways to doctor photos. I’ve done airbrushing retouching of photos, and that was difficult.

Once Photoshop came out I was in heaven! But having the analog and film background made me understand the tools in Photoshop as many are named from the actual analog processes.

Sometimes the goof ‘shops I’ve done have been taken serious and no one got the joke. That’s when I realized I was getting good at it.

So for anyone wanting to working Photoshop…this has been a little lesson of what to do! it is one hell of a tool. And fun.

Sending it to Mr. Trump’s and Mr. Spicer’s Twitter accounts forces them to refute it. It makes them spend time doing that instead of the destructive policies they are working on.

We can deflect just as they can. We can also talk about more than one thing at a time (creeping fascism and questions of whether a photograph has been altered - liberals can multi-task).

NYT goes there.

These are lies; good old-fashioned lies, baldfaced and flat-out lies.

Some have suggested that we in the media should focus a bit less on these lies — some of them issued in tweets and some in interviews or news conferences — and focus more on policies, particularly the ineptitude of the gathering cabinet and the raft of executive orders that Trump himself is signing.

But I take the position that this is all worthy of coverage, that there are simply different kinds of news being unearthed about this administration that exist on different strata.

To take it even further, it may be these seemingly smaller infractions that produce the greater injury because the implications are more profound. Trump does not simply have “a running war with the media,” as he so indecorously and disrespectfully spouted off while standing on the hallowed ground before the C.I.A. Memorial Wall. He is in fact having a running war with the truth itself.

This is a guy who seriously doesn’t get what his powers are and what his rights and responsibilities are as the Commander in Chief to not even suggest torturing, which is against the Geneva Conventions.

There are damned good reasons not to torture people - mostly because we don’t want our troops tortured or mistreated. There’s also the fact that torture simply doesn’t work as coerced info isn’t likely to be accurate or timely.

But the idiots who think 24 is factual don’t get that torture doesn’t work. People will say anything to stop the torture. They will tell the torturer what they think they want to hear, even when they don’t know anything of use.

torture doesn’t actually work that way. the assumption during professionally applied torture is that people will lie and that when people are in extreme pain they will say anything. therefore, torture is never used to extract some single factoid out of a person. instead, torture is used in such a way that the victim will simply start talking and won’t stop until a person has been broken down into a babbling idiot, of no future use. people get turned into turkeys. the mob refers to their torturers as turkey doctors (thanks, Don Pendleton!)

President Trump echoes Bannon: Media is ‘opposition party’
Posted 4:55 pm, January 27, 2017, by CNN Wire
Excerpts:

“I think the media is the opposition party in many ways,” Trump said in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody.
[snip]

In what has been a whirlwind first week in office, Trump has demonstrated that he and his administration intend to continue the anti-media rhetoric that propelled his presidential campaign. On Saturday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer delivered an angry statement in which he wrongly accused journalists of misreporting on the crowd size at the inauguration ceremonies the day before.

Bannon, the former chairman of the right-wing news site Breitbart, was reportedly among the Trump advisers who pushed Spicer to deliver the statement.

Trump hasn’t just relied on his staff to ridicule and attack journalists. Speaking at CIA headquarters last Saturday, Trump said he has a “running war” with the media.

I’d too.

Average DC Metro Ridership per Wikipedia: 836,800 per week, calculating a 5 day week (which would be high); 167,360 daily.

So:
For you crowd size folks: Metro rail ridership as of 11 a.m.:
March for Life (today): 237K 69k
Women’s March: 275K
Trump’s Inauguration: 193K

Still too damn many, even if it was 10k.

As an aside, I went to the Rally to Restore Sanity and the Metro was insane. I cannot image with Obama’s inauguration was like. This too is from Wikipedia:

The highest ridership for a single day was on the day of the inauguration of Barack Obama, January 20, 2009, with 1,120,000 riders. It broke the previous record, set the day before, of 866,681 riders.[27] June 2008 set several ridership records: the single-month ridership record of 19,729,641 total riders, the record for highest average weekday ridership with 1,044,400 weekday trips, had five of the ten highest ridership days, and had 12 weekdays in which ridership exceed 800,000 trips.[11]

On October 30, 2010, the crowd at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear broke a 19-year record in Saturday ridership, with 825,437 trips. The previous record had been set on June 8, 1991 at 786,358 trips during the Desert Storm rally.[29][30]

While it’s far from the worst about the Trump presidency, Kelly managing to spin her “opposition” to Trump into respectability is certainly disgusting.

She got a few in but stopped. That’s why the person feeding her was massaging her mouth to get her to suck again.

I’ve fed lots of foals by bottle, to get weak ones going, and I agree it didn’t look good. Her eyes and nostrils didn’t flicker, and the fingers manipulating the lips, and pulling the nipple in and out are things you would do to stimulate sucking.

re: #337 Backwoods_Sleuth

They were tube feeding her until today, so the bottle and sucking is a new thing for her to learn.

Just got to this comment. Yep, that could explain some things.
