InfoWars is sued for Copyright Infringement for using Pepe the Frog!

The infamous media-house, syndicated right-wing conspiracy wheeling machine of a so-called news-organization, called the InfoWars with Alex Jones as their head. He is now sued by the cartoonist behind Pepe the Frog. The one behind it is the artist Matt Furie, who has made a famous meme and also copyrighted the rights of usage of the Pepe the Frog. It is within that bound that the artist and his lawyers has sued Infowars.

InfoWars has made a poster with the frog together with Donald Trump, Milo Yiannopolous, Roger Stone and also Ann Coulter. With the slogan on “Make America Great Again”. The slogan of Trump during his campaign. That everyone knows and isn’t that strange for a right-wing page to sell posters with that, but what is special is that in the midst of this they have put Pepe the Frog in red. This poster was sold for $ 17.76 each, meaning that InfoWars are earning money on other people’s craft, because even other hatred groups have been using the frog, as they wanted to make it as sign of being deplorable’s.

Even the Alt-Right hate group write this on their page about the cartoon: “Pepe the Frog is a cartoon character that has become a popular Internet meme (often referred to as the “sad frog meme” by people unfamiliar with the name of the character). The character first appeared in 2005 in the on-line cartoon Boy’s Club” (Anti-Defamation League). So clearly, the hatred and the usage of it, has spiraled to a level where the groups who Furie doesn’t associate with are using his craft in their missions.

Therefore, because of that, even Alex Jones picked it up and started selling it on his online-shop, who sells anything to trade some ill-gotten gains to his media-house. So InfoWars is one of many, who has misused the cartoon in their propaganda and their internet trolling of people. They are now throwing shade on Furie, even Jones has said its fraudulent today on his show. That is because he cannot stomach to pay damages and stand for decision to trade posters with the cartoon on.

The ironic thing, is that no-one has asked permission or the usage of it, and these groups who hasn’t asked to use the cartoon. The publishing and the use of it in a form and messages that counters the artist believe, political stance or even decency. Anyone want to avoid that and Furie is right to fight for his craft, in court and in public. So his cartoon isn’t becoming racist, but a public joy and fun cartoon.

Instead, it is misused in the wrong narrative, we can hope the Court let the artist win the case and let InfoWars pay for damages, so Furie can continue to sue people misusing his cartoon without permission in the near future. So, that is can be associated with other people, than the ones who are White Supremacists and the racists of America.

It seems little and not so important, but the artist and his rights should be hold, he should get this and bag-it, just for the sense of his rights to decide where his craft goes and who can use it for profit. That is natural. That is ordinary.

InfoWars, like ADL, never asked and just using it in their favor. Not considering the implication of the creator or the ones who made the cartoon. That is something they should have and Furie has the right to sue them. So he can get his cartoon back and get it within the will of the creator. Who then decides who is allowed to trade and to publish the cartoon.

Pepe the Frog, might seem like just another meme, but this here is serious. Peace.

White House: Sebastian Gorka fired from being National Security Aide yesterday – The Sack-Race continues!

The New York Gang, the Trump Administration continues is weekly operation with their steady phase of firing. This time it was National Security Aide or Trump Adviser Sebastian Gorka, an ally of ousted White House Strategist Stephen Bannon. So the Bannonesque part of the administration is winding-down. Still, Trump can still be his racist and dividing-in-chief. He done this with a pardon of racial controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona and starting a transgender-ban in the military. Clearly, Trump still can stir controversy without Bannon and his team-mates in the White House.

That Trump fires Gorka is more General John Kelly and wanting more ‘peaceful’ characters inside the White House. Than, having a Neo-Nazi, a White Nationalist inside the White House like Gorka. He will be an issue and a man who was hired and supported by Bannon. With or without him, Trump will still support the racists and the ones who are part of magnificent groups on the “Alt-Right”. He cannot help himself and will not.

That Bannon left and that his former workmate in Breitbart and contributor at Fox News Gorka, clearly will either end back with Bannon at Breitbart or on Sinclair Media. Since, he will still spread his nonsense and hatred for other people. The sacking will not silence him, but his 7 month stint in the White House was because of Bannon, not because Trump knew the man or had a friendship with the man.

Trump actually fired Gorka while he was on family vacation, it shows the extent of him not caring about about his aides, that they are disposables like Pepsi cans. He can fire and hire like he pleases. This shows the chaotic state of the White House, where more and more people are taking a stand against it, after the President showed his true remarks to the Charlottesville ‘Unite the Right’ marches and violence. His popularity is at all time low and the sacking of Bannon and Gorka, doesn’t change the aftermath of the support of the ‘Alt-Right’, White Supremacists, White Nationalists and the KKK. This will now always stain the Presidency and his allies. Even Mnuchin knows this now, he is like the Coca-Cola company who created Fanta so they could sell Fanta during the Nazi-Era in Germany. All, the people left behind in positions and not resigning are compliance with the President.

That Gorka lasted 7 months in the White House was too long stint for a person like this, but the President is the same. He just switching in public after what crowd he is trying to please, the people see it now and the lies are at the forefront, but his acts, Memo’s and Executive Orders, shows his true heart. Even if he fires men with the same kind of ethics, he still has it under his skin. That is evident. Nothing is hiding that in the White House. Gorka might be gone, but the admiration of the fascists and their groups is not gone. Not as long as Trump is in power. Peace.

White House Shadow President Steve Bannon is out, the Sack-Race Continues!

I fired White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. I got tired of hearing that there is someone mentally unstable in the White House. #Bannon” – Donald J. Trump (18.08.2017).

It took him 210 in office before the White House Strategist Stephen Bannon got fired, the former Campaign Manager of Trump and the know Republican President Donald J. Trump. Clearly, the White House is still in shambles and in major troubles. A general has already reshuffled with a new close Trump aide this week with Hope Hicks as White House Communications Director, which is the third one just in that position. Therefore, you can wonder if Jared Kushner will become the Strategist too, since Trump has now so few to trust.

NBC reports today:

Statement from the Press Secretary

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day. We are grateful for his service and we wish him the best” (White House/NBC 18.08.2017).

This is just a shocking, but not surprising at this point, anyone hired by Trump will most likely be fired by him. Not because it just their fault, but anyone else than Trump has to jump on their sword. The suicide and doubling down might come naturally to Trump, but he will blame his aides and his people. Not take the blame himself. That Trump is a racist is now sure and he tries defend himself with another sacking. Not that it makes him brighter or wiser. It doesn’t, just look like more chaos in the White House.

Just like the New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzia reports: “ Source close to WH on Trump: “this whole idea that he plays three dimensional chess & we play checkers is bullshit” Adds he rarely has plan. Source close to WH adds “what the hell does it matter at this point?” who’s running the show, since “they’re not getting anything done.”Source close to WH says they’re “worried” about the survival of Stephen Miller and Kellyanne Conway.“I don’t see any senior decision makers around the president besides the Vice President who are real conservatives.” – source close to WH” (Olivia Nuzzia, 18.08.2017).

This sort of reporting is believable, as it seems, since the White House have fired and hired without any plan or any consideration of plans or strategy. Therefore, the second Chief of Staff has been allowed to fire White House Communication Director Anthony Scaramucci, but Scaramucci was also the reason for the fall of Sean Spicer and Reince Preibus. Therefore, the random sackings and the failing administration shows it’s perspective.

Certainly, John Kelly might want the White Supremacists, White Nationalist and the Neo-Nazis away from the White House, but than the Chief of Staff has to evict his master, President Trump. President Trump are clearly supporting Confederate ideas and “Unite the Right” initiatives, as he never has spoken or denounced the support of Grand Wizard David Duke, neither Jason Kessler or Richard Spencer for that matter. There have been enough grand standing racists he likes to be affiliated with, therefore, shuffling out Bannon will not clear the house of white trash. There will still be some left behind.

There is still Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka, they are not sound minds as well. Both of them has views and perspective not far from Bannon. If not in the same league as Bannon. So, it is not like the shop has none disturbing forces there. The most disturbing one is the President. A President who has sentiments in favor of the Alt-Right, the Neo-Nazis, White Supremacist and White Nationalist, a false-romantic favors for the Confederate heroes.

This is the American Experience right now… but let’s hope Robert Mueller team can do something about this White House, have enough indictments and criminal conspiracy, to charge and collect close-knitted personnel and high-ranking officials to impeach Trump. Because the American people should hope for someone who is not a racist-in-charge, but a man who stand behind certain values and moral standing with their people. Peace.
