horatioOnce upon a time in days of long ago when kids in school were actually educated, they all knew the story of  Horatio at the Bridge.

Winston Churchill committed all 600 lines of Macaulay’s famous poem about it to memory as a young boy, a story of epic heroism that inspired him all his life.

Horatio, or Publius Horatius, was a soldier in the fledgling Roman Army in 508 BC when the small weak city-state rebelled against rule by the Etruscans.  His nickname was “Cocles,” meaning one-eyed as he had lost an eye in a previous battle.  A huge Etruscan army attacked, slaughtering the Roman army, the remnants of which fled across the narrow Pons Sublicius bridge over the Tiber River and through the gates to the city.

As the Etruscans stormed over the bridge to sack and destroy Rome, one man stood in their way and defied them.  Horatio yelled back at his fellow Romans to cut down the bridge behind him while he fought and killed the Etruscans before him.

Then out spake brave Horatius, The Captain of the gate: “To every man upon this earth Death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better Than facing fearful odds For the ashes of his fathers And the temples of his gods,

“Hew down the bridge, Sir Consul, With all the speed ye may; I, with two more to help me, Will hold the foe in play. In yon strait path a thousand May well be stopped by three: Now who will stand on either hand, And keep the bridge with me?”

Do you hear America’s Horatio calling out to you?



Lessons Democrats must learn

Lessons Democrats must learn

On July 7, 2016 in Dallas, a Black Nationalist named Micah Xavier Johnson shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally.  He said he wanted “to kill white people, especially white officers.”

Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended the racist hate group.  The result is today the Left-led Democrats have killed civil rights and replaced it with Black Nationalism. The racial supremacism of Black Nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere.

If Democrats really want to stop the rise of Neo-Nazi violence, there’s a very easy way. Stop normalizing Black Nationalism and the Alt-Left. End the racist witch hunts for white privilege. Make it clear that street violence is unacceptable and that racism is bad no matter who it comes from. Allow people you disagree with to express their views without trying to destroy their lives.

But that’s the opposite of what the Dems will do. They don’t want fewer Neo-Nazis; they want more of them. They don’t want fewer attacks like Charlottesville and Charleston. They want more of them.



fighting-fascismNazis are bad.  The KKK is bad.

Way more than 99 percent of Americans agree.  People who embrace Nazism or KKK racism are a tiny fraction of our people.  The Anti-Defamation League puts the KKK membership at some 3,000 – 1,000th of 1%.

But Leftists assert President Trump and his supporters are closet Nazis. This is pathological guilt by association, Alinsky hypocrisy on steroids. The world of Orwell’s 1984 exists in Charlottesville.

So it’s critically important now to remember:  The Left always projects.  They always smear their opponents of being what they are, proponents of fascist thuggery.

The entire chorus of the Left, from fascist Antifa thugs to every Lying Swine journo is screaming that James Fields’ “terrorism” proves that every white person in America is a crypto-racist-terrorist.

Here’s a question: If Fields had shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he mowed down pedestrians, would anyone in the MSM call what he did “terror?”  Would there be multiple stories worrying about the danger of Whiteophobia with headlines “White-Americans Fear Backlash After Charlottesville”?  Like the PBS headline of June 15, 2016: “Muslim-Americans Fear Backlash After Orlando Mass Shooting.”



politicos-for-fraudIf a political candidate asks you for a donation with a promise that he or she will do some specific act if elected and then fails to do so, should you be able to sue for fraud?

That’s just what a Republican donor in Virginia has done, filing on August 3 a lawsuit in US District Court accusing the Republican Party of racketeering in raising millions of dollars based on the fraudulent promise of repealing Obamacare.

If a contractor offers to build a new deck on your home within a specific time period and then fails to do, so you can sue for nonperformance. Excuses that his competitors were not co-operating, or that all of his workers did not show up, or he wanted to take a vacation, would probably not persuade the judge.

It is well understood that many salespeople and political candidates engage in puffery about what their product does or what they are going to do. But when does puffery go so far as to become fraud?  Let’s see how.



A Reichstag Moment?

A Reichstag Moment?

Maybe it is as it all seems.  A “white Nazi” named James Alex Fields Jr. plows his car with murderous intent into peaceful black protestors, killing one and injuring a score of others, and the demonization of whites becomes fully justified in America.

A perfect moment for the Hate Trump Dems and the Left.  But maybe too perfect. Taylor Lorenz is a well-known journalist now with The Hill newspaper in DC (the “hill” is Capitol Hill, it’s certainly not right-wing).  She was right there when Fields crashed his car.  She then went to the police station where Fields was being held.  She tweeted:

lorenz-tweet-081417The incredible violence of baseball bat wielding Antifas is ignored by the Lying Swine.  This incident is being lied about in order to demonize all whites and President Trump.  It is a true Reichstag moment.



goolagNo need for any suspense on who is the HFR Hero of the Week:  James Damore, author of Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber that TTP ran in full on Tuesday (8/08).

It is a masterpiece of highly-educated reasoned thought, of calm scientific analysis of Google’s counterproductive “diversity” policies.  Damore was arguing for genuine diversity of thought, talent, and skills among Google’s workforce, and gave evidence that Google’s policies suppressed it.

Instantly, it was denounced by Google’s SJWs (social justice warriors) as an “Anti-Diversity Memo” when it was exactly the opposite, and got Damore quickly fired by the quivering wimp who’s the Goolag’s CEO – who doesn’t have the brains to grasp his action proved Damore’s every word.

The damage done to Google, financially and reputationally is monumental.  Google has been exposed as Orwellian fascist.  There is so much more – like what Robert Mueller is really doing, and how the Alt-Right is Alinskyizing the Left.  Here we go…



r-blumenthal-tweetRichie Blumenthal is everything Donald Trump despises. 

Even though he’s a Harvard grad with a JD from Yale Law, he’s never had a real job, never run a business, worked in government all his life, married an heiress who gave him a net worth of $70 million, lied about serving in Vietnam to get elected to the Senate (and later admitted it), and is now one of the biggest Alt-Left Hate America Cultural Marxist Jerktard Senators in Congress.

On Monday (8/07), his recent Twitter fight with the President resulted in the tweet above.

“No one is above the law” is factually and historically not true – but it should be.  Democrat Senator Blumenthal is absolutely right that no one, no matter how powerful or important, should be above the law – that if they are criminals they should be prosecuted, and if found guilty should be imprisoned.  Right, Senator?  You’re nodding your head in agreement, yes?

Good, we agree.  That means, then, that you further agree that Bill and Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes, John Brennan, and Barack Hussein Obama himself, are not above the law, right?

That means Robert Mueller is not above the law, right?  That if he is clearly and overtly breaking the Special Prosecutor law under which he is acting, then he must resign or be prosecuted, yes?

Why are you stuttering, Senator?  Why is your head suddenly paralyzed so you can’t nod in agreement?  Are you having some kind of seizure?



google-enemy-of-the-people[This is the full ten-page internal memo to fellow employees attacking Google’s politically correct monoculture, written by Google engineer James Damore – whose facts and assertions were proven excruciatingly correct by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who fired Damore last night (8/07) for “advancing harmful gender stereotypes.”

TTP encourages you to read it entire.  It outraged Google’s fascist Social Justice Warriors, to whom Pichai instantly succumbed.  The SJW Code of Conduct has three rules:  Always lie, always project, always double down.  All three are evidenced by Google’s firing Damore for brilliantly and courageously speaking truth to power.]

I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes.

When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem.

Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber.

Despite what the public response seems to have been, I’ve gotten many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude for bringing up these very important issues which they agree with but would never have the courage to say or defend because of our shaming culture and the possibility of being fired. This needs to change.



google-is-evil[Intro note from Jack Wheeler: One of the nice things about TTP is the quality of insights I receive from members. After seeing what Google just did to one of its honest employees, TTPer Joe emailed me about living a Google-free life. More important, he and his TTPer friends explained the nature of the Google threat, and how each of us can hurt Google while making our Internet use more pleasant.

I encourage you to leverage their broad technical knowledge by passing these suggestions on to friends. All I ask is that if you do, tell them that it comes from TTP!] 

After watching Google fire James Damore for daring to use science to argue with corporate policy, it's hard to disagree with my friend and fellow TTPer Jason, who calls Google "one of the most insidious, evil companies the world has ever known." 

Fighting back will involve some political action, but most of the action will be personal. It may seem like it’s hard to live without Google products, but it’s actually quite easy.

I’m going to show you exactly how to do that, while improving your tech life at the same time. We’re also going to talk about how to really hurt Google where it counts.
