On James Spader

RichTakes! On James Spader

The only big three network show that I’ve followed for the past ten years is NBC’s “The Blacklist”. It has a lot of things going on, even if it would work as a DC comic. It may have only run for seven years, I don’t know. I’m too lazy to do the research.

The premise is that Spader’s character Raymond Reddington is an international crime boss who is a do-gooder at heart. He is also number one on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. He somehow struck up a deal to share intel with the FBI, who created a dark team to work with him to take down some of the world’s worst criminals, which they didn’t even know existed. Over the course of years, they took out many of the criminals on Reddington’s “Blacklist”.

The other main character is Elizabeth Keene, who was the daughter of a Russian spy. She killed her father at age five during some huge incident when the house burnt down in Wisconsin. Raymond may also be Russian. He at the very least has “friends in the east”. It’s a good bet that Raymond is not who he says he is, and no one really knows who he really is during the entire series. The plot twist is that Raymond is trying to protect Elizabeth through the end. From what? Keene is an FBI “profiler” although there is not much in the show to show that.

I have over 50 episodes recorded in my DVR, but sadly lost the first twenty or so. If you can find a way to binge the Blacklist, do it.

When Spader was much younger he did a few movies which had critical acclaim, but maybe not so much box-office. 

The first was “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” during which he interviewed several women about their sex life from a completely disinterested  perspective, and recorded them on VHS.

The second was “Secretary”  which explored masochism. I’m pretty sure it did no box office at all. 

Watch both.

On Taking The Mask Off

I wrote this post over three years ago, but I never posted it. I have no idea why. It seems even more important today.

I have no idea if the links still work, but I suspect that most of them still do.

Original post:

Welcome to RichTakes! On Taking The Mask Off

Obama campaigned that in five days, we will fundamentally transform the United States of America, and the supporters at his rally in Chicago cheered. Why would anyone wish to fundamentally transform the most successful experiment in self-governance in the history of mankind? A country which was formed in a grand compromise which guaranteed individual sovereignty and rights, as well as the 13 former British Colonies who were now States coming together to create a limited federal government which guaranteed the rights of the People and of the States freedom and liberty with safe guards in place to prevent our federal government from encroaching upon our basic, God-given rights?

The wisdom of our Constitutional Republic that our Founders agreed to in our Constitution unleashed nearly two hundred years of progress and technological advancement with little government intervention that those brave souls didn’t even dream of. When government is limited, man’s creativity is unleashed. Our noble experiment created the most prosperous nation in history, and we changed the world. 

Have you noticed how Democrats always refer to “our Democracy” when we do not have a democratic form of government? There is a good reason for that too. Our Founders were terrified about a democratic form of governance, realizing that it would always end with mob rule, and further, the former colonies would have never agreed to a democracy since smaller states would have next to no say compared to the larger states at the time (PA, MA, NY, and VA). Our Constitution was ratified because it protected individual rights, and state’s rights. If the People’s rights and the State’s rights were not protected, we would not have created a new country at the start.

In 2016, Donald J. Trump got elected. During the 2018 mid-terms, the Democrats picked up 46 seats in the House and the Republicans added a few seats to their majority in the Senate.

Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House again, as I warned, and now she has a hornet’s nest worth of PR to lie about, since a few freshman members of the House are taking the mask off, which most Democrats have been trying to hide for decades. In the long run, they agree with everything about A-Och’s Green New Deal, they just didn’t want to come out publicly about it. It has been obvious for decades. They are all Democratic Socialists, most just don’t wish to admit it. In case you don’t know, democratic-socialism is no different than pure socialism, leading to straight-out communism. As the Green New Deal illustrates, they are using false science climate-change talking points to get to that point. 

I am delighted that the Democrats are taking the socialist marxist mask off. I’ve known it for decades, but now suddenly they are bragging about it.

5 insane provisions in the amnesty omnibus bill

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Releases Green New Deal Outline : NPR

We only have 12 years according to AOC before we’re toast. Yet it will take 10 years to implement the end of the internal combustion engine, end all nuclear, gas, oil and coal energy plants, replace jets with high speed rail, and end cow farting. I say screw it. We’re really talking about ten years of pain when it will be all over in 12 years anyway.

This looks really similar to FDR’s “Second Bill of Rights” which the New Green Disaster mimics point by point. We should learn from the past.

The “Wind and Solar Will Save Us” Delusion | Our Finite World

>>In 2015, fossil fuels accounted for 86% of the world’s energy consumption, and nuclear added another 4%, based on data from BP Statistical Review of World Energy. Thus, the world’s “preferred fuels” made up only 10% of the total. Wind and solar together accounted for a little less than 2% of world energy consumption.<<

Occupy Wall Street? Occupy DC!

Occupy Wall Street? Occupy DC!

Can you imagine the reaction if George Dubbya Bush or Donald Trump would have brought in 15,000 National Guard into our fair capital city? To say nothing of the 25,000 they actually did, while under no threat. It’s all about optics, folks. Pelosi and Schumer believe that anyone who didn’t vote for the senile, perverted, bribed and corrupted Joe “Beau” Biden is a domestic terrorist, especially anyone who thinks that there was major fraud in our election process. 

So while anyone who didn’t vote for Biden needs de-programming and re-education, they are probably still racists and worse. Give me a break.

ANTIFA and BLM attacked the White House last summer, and they were supposedly expressing a peaceful protest, even while they were trying to burn an historic church down.

The Democrats and their ANTIFA and BLM friends are the real fascists. Plain and simple.

The new Democrat regime has said that the National Guard will occupy DC until March at least, to protect their fascism against you and me. Like that was a thing anyway.

On the President-Elect

CNN, the AP and Fox News does not get to decide who the President-elect is. Biden and Harris claiming said status doesn’t mean a thing.

We have a Constitution for a reason, and none of the bench-marks for President-elect have yet been met, not by a long-shot.

Manufacturing votes with mail-in ballots under the cover of darkness in several Democrat cities and states (NV, AZ, MI, WI, PA, GA, NC) does not an election make. Look for thousands of these votes to be tossed in the next week or two, and don’t be surprised if this lasts into December.

This fraud which has disenfranchised legitimate votes makes Bush v Gore look like child’s-play.

Don’t drink the Kool-Aid. The media does not get to decide the winner of our elections.

Ballot Clerks in Wisconsin Allegedly Added Witness Statements To Thousands of Invalid Ballots

Dick Morris Lays out How Trump Can Win, ‘Don’t Buy the Kool Aid That This Race Is Over’

The Supreme Court provisionally allowed ballots to be counted if they arrived before Friday, November 6 and were postmarked before election day, November 3rd and ordered late votes to be segregated. When Justice Alito was informed that the state had not segregated the late votes, as required in the Court’s decision, Alito reaffirmed the necessity of enforcing the court order.

Biden currently leads by 37,000 votes in Pennsylvania. The number of late arriving ballots likely far exceeds this total (the state has not published this information). Justice Alito and a Court majority may throw out the late ballots, likely delivering the state to Trump.

This is not exactly correct, the Supremes did not allow mail in votes received after the polls closed on Tuesday to be provisionally counted. The law is clear, each state legislature decides and defines the manner of voting on the first Tuesday in November as clearly stated in Article II of the Constitution. The Democrat Governor in Pennsylvania sued in the PA Supreme Court after the PA legislature declined to amend election law and unilaterally decided to change PA election law unlawfully. The Executive and the Judicial branch in PA have no jurisdiction that entitles them to change state election law unilaterally.

On #All Lives Matter

I’m doing a little ketchup here. I wrote most of this over three weeks ago and never completed it. Lot’s more rioting and revolution has occurred since then, I hope to post a new update in the next day or two.

Welcome to Rich TAkes! on #All Lives Matter

I opened a can of worms by posting on FB, #All Lives Matter

It is a simple concept, yet I was surprised by the amount of push-back I received. I can’t imagine how anyone can disagree with the sentiment that all lives matter.

All lives do matter, including the unfortunate death of George Floyd recently in Minneapolis, MN. I don’t know anyone who can justify his unfortunate death under power of police. The officer who kept his boot on Floyd’s neck has been charged with 2nd, 3rd degree murder, as well as manslaughter, and the other three officers on the scene have been charged with what amounts to being accomplices to murder. All of the officers involved were dismissed and fired from duties immediately.

Unfortunately, after this ridiculous tragedy, ANTIFA, BLM, and BAMN have moved out into nearly three dozen cities, inciting riots, arson, and looting. Many if not most are supported by radical rich idiots (supporters). There is a GoFundMe page for bail for rioters which has been supported mostly by Hollywood limousine liberals. It had 20 million in donations a day or two ago. Even worse, New York’s new no-bail policy released most of those arrested as soon as they were booked.

Horowitz: Justice for George Floyd and for all of the 7,000+ black homicide victims every year

Here’s a reminder about who Black LIVES Matter really are.

Project Veritas INFILTRATES ANTIFA: “Practice things like an eye gouge…injure someone’s eyes” – YouTube

#EXPOSEANTIFA PART II: NYC Fight Club Training “Break one of the floating ribs…” – YouTube

Opinion: Most of This Turmoil Has Been Based on a Lie

>>The demonstrations became about a lie. The demonstrations became a protest about Systemic Police Brutality based on racism. It became about police far and wide, “deliberately hunting down and killing” Black men. Groups intent on the destruction of America, or with other nefarious political purposes, began to take advantage of this misplaced outrage and began to foment full-blown riots. Out of control crowds began destroying property, maiming and killing people, looting and burning to the ground the businesses of the very people they purported to be outraged on behalf of.<<

If you see any of the illegal graffiti at any of these riots, you will see front and center “ACAB” That means All Cops Are Bastards. “1312” means the same thing. If you truly believe that, you can leave this page now, I have nothing more to say to you.

Antifa and anarchists have hijacked Floyd protests but left won’t admit it


Minnesota AG Keith Ellison’s son: ‘I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA’ 

Like father, like son.

Jeremiah Ellison, the son of AG Keith Ellison and a member of the Minneapolis city council, wrote the following in response to President Trump’s announcement that intends to designate Antifa as a terrorist organization. The younger Ellison assigned blame for the civil unrest on “white power” terrorists.

“I hereby declare, officially, my support for ANTIFA Unless someone can prove to me ANTIFA is behind the burning of black and immigrant owned businesses in my ward, I’ll keep focusing on stopping the white power terrorist THE ARE ACTUALLY ATTACKING US!”

On a Chat With Comcast

I pay Comcast enough each month to lease a new car. I wanted to ring them up and talk about it. No dice, it’s not happening. Comcast no longer posts a phone number anywhere on the site, and believe me, I looked everywhere. Then I tried the so-called chat support, and was introduced to really lousy AI. Artificial Intelligence.

They don’t seem to have in issue with social justice warrior stuff though. MSNBC and NBC are Comcast companies, BTW.

100 million is chump change in the social justice warrior battlefield. But no longer supporting actual customers with real live human support is unforgivable:
