quick note

The Conservapedia article on the Soviet Union ranks pretty well at the the search engines of Google, Yahoo and Bing. I spruced up the Soviet Union article via some pictures and now it ranks #5 at Google for the search term Soviet Union as can be seen HERE

Bottom line: Your Soviet Union and communism related material plus any future material you create in that genre will now have a bigger audience.

Lastly, I think it is best if we put aside our past differences and work more cooperatively in the future. Best wishes on your future editing. Conservative 16:45, 15 November 2011 (EST)

Hey!

Nice to see you back--CamilleT 19:27, 15 November 2011 (EST)

Thanks! Rob Smith 15:59, 21 November 2011 (EST)

So, are you trying to whitewash Gingrich and his personal history? He's an adulterer several times over. --SharonW 18:58, 22 January 2012 (EST) Edited to add - every bit of what I added to the article was referenced. I thought we didn't censor truth? --SharonW 18:59, 22 January 2012 (EST)

No. Information needs to carefully vetted. There's a lot of lies and misinformation out there about Newt, his first wife being served with divorce papers on her deathbed being for instance. This material needs to be handles carefully. Rob Smith 19:01, 22 January 2012 (EST)
I didn't add anything to the article about "deathbed" papers. However you deleted everything - looks like a whitewash to me. --SharonW 19:05, 22 January 2012 (EST)
In fact - you were the one to add something in about the deathbed papers. SharonW 19:06, 22 January 2012 (EST)
You're right -- and the message is proceed with caution. For decades now liberals and MSM have published blatant lies about Gingrich. You need to show credentials your intentions are not the same. Rob Smith 19:09, 22 January 2012 (EST)
I need to show credentials? What kind of credentials are you looking for, Rob? --SharonW 19:18, 22 January 2012 (EST)
That you're not a God-hating commie out to destroy Newt Gingrich. Rob Smith 19:31, 22 January 2012 (EST)
Gingrich did that pretty well on his own, as far as I'm concerned. Everyone has hot buttons - Andy's is abortion, yours is communism, mine is adultery. Gingrich is a creep, and what he does in his personal life tells me a lot about him. --SharonW 19:35, 22 January 2012 (EST)

Also, quick question - why is it important to add that the Clintons had an "open" marriage but not to add that Gingrich had at least 2 affairs, and forced his first ex-wife to appeal to the courts for money in order to support their two children? Both are very telling about the individuals. --SharonW 19:24, 22 January 2012 (EST)

Should we include allegations Hilary is a lesbian? her formal and public denial during the 2008 Presidential contest doesn't mean it's necessarily untrue. Especially given the Clinton's record in matters of sex. Where should we draw the line? Rob Smith 19:31, 22 January 2012 (EST)
Court records aren't allegations, Rob, they're public records. Mrs. Gingrich filed for support because Gingrich didn't pay. What does that tell you about him? --SharonW 19:35, 22 January 2012 (EST)
I don't know, that she's vindictive? that she and her lawyer tried to embarrass and blackmail Gingrich? What do Gingric's daughters, for whom the support is intended, say about it now? Rob Smith 19:45, 22 January 2012 (EST)
Oh, good one, Rob. The soon-to-be-ex-wife is vindictive when her bills were two to three months past due because Gingrich didn't pay any support. What did the judge think - oh, wait, he agreed with her. So I can only think you approve of adultery. --SharonW 19:49, 22 January 2012 (EST)


Gingrich

No more edit-warring. Please provide evidence that what has been added is false before removing it. Thank you, babe. --SharonW 22:14, 22 January 2012 (EST)

Rugby World Cup comparison to Superbowl

User:ScottDG informed me that, according to you, a comparison to the Superbowl is important for the Rugby World Cup page. I think it's inaccurate and slightly misleading, but I'm unaware of the reasoning as to why it is important. Here's the discussion. Cheers.

Mugshot

I uploaded the poser pic at Conservapedia:Image_upload_requests --Jpatt 23:10, 27 January 2012 (EST)

Fine

Working hard? --Joaquín Martínez 19:12, 28 January 2012 (EST)

Yes. Thank you. Good to hear from you. Rob Smith 19:18, 28 January 2012 (EST)

Insults

Your gratuitous insulting behaviour might be tolerated on other sites, but lets keep the conversations civil here. You do not see me going around insulting your country do you? --DamianJohn 20:49, 28 January 2012 (EST)

Third World is not an insult. Rob Smith 16:19, 29 January 2012 (EST)
Yes it is. Don't get cute Rob. Can't you go about editing an encyclopaedia without hurling insults at everyone? Or is that beyond your capabilities? --DamianJohn 18:12, 29 January 2012 (EST)
If the term "Third World" is a pejorative, blame the United Nations, not me. Rob Smith 19:21, 29 January 2012 (EST)
No. I blame you Rob, because the word no longer has the meaning it used to have. Also, you could not say with a straight face that you were using the word in the anachronistic sense. In any case, even under the older sense of the word, New Zealand was a first world country. Every post you make you look more and more foolish. --DamianJohn 19:33, 29 January 2012 (EST)
New Zealand is a Superpower? don't think so; New Zealand's not even a member of NATO or the European Union. New Zealand may be among the developed nations, which could earn it Second World status, dependent upon the level of its foreign debt and trade surplus/ deficit. But even if it has a fairly decent living standard by world standards, adjustment must be made for its military and defense contributions to maintaining a stable international trading system. And if it spends .01% as Japan does of it's national income on defense, leaving American taxpayers to pick up the slack (and thus, suffer a lower standard of living) no way does New Zealand under any circumstances equal First World superpower status of the US. Rob Smith 19:56, 29 January 2012 (EST)
I know of no person, except you, who claims that first world means superpower. Even your cite doesn't argue for this. In fact your cite explicitly calls NZ a first world country. Now if you want to make up a definition for a term, at least have the decency to let everyone know that. I don't know if you are just trolling, or you seriously believe what you are saying, either way, I suggest you go have a long hard look at yourself in the mirror. I'm done with you. --DamianJohn 20:15, 29 January 2012 (EST)
Congratulations, welcome to the First World. You'll see, it's no big deal. Rob Smith 20:32, 29 January 2012 (EST)

I hear your country got the beginnings of a health-care system, I see America is rapidly approaching first-world status :), glad you could join us. Cmurphynz 05:37, 20 October 2012 (EDT)

Expansion of the universe

Yes, Rob, if you look at a star today, and then 500 years from now, you will notice a difference in distance of 500*rate of yearly expansion. RachelW 20:59, 30 January 2012 (EST)

The rate of expansion is about 73 km/s/Mpc. What that means is that for every megaparsec you are in distance from a point, you will be moving 73 km/s away from that point due to the expansion of the universe. So, 1 megaparsec away means you are moving 73 km/s, 2 megaparsecs away and its 146 km/s, and so on. For your reference, a megaparsec is about 3,261,636 light years, or 20 billion billion miles. This is why we don't really notice the expansion of the universe without high powered telescopes. Its a very small rate of expansion relative to the sizes involved. Hope this helps. RachelW 21:21, 30 January 2012 (EST)

It does. So the gravitationally bound objects likewise are moving with the expansion at the same rate? Is matter in the universe likewise expanding? Not to sound absurd, but am I actually becoming more obese as the universe expands? Rob Smith 22:01, 30 January 2012 (EST)

It is not the matter itself, expanding, but the space between it. Think about a lump of bread dough with raisins in it, as it rises in the oven. The raisins don't expand themselves, but if you stand on a raisin and look at the other raisins, you'll see them moving away from you, and the farther away they are, the faster they move.

The thing is, any two objects close enough to be bound gravitationally are not likely to be far enough away for the expansion to matter at all. Although, actually, since the rate of expansion is increasing, some scientists believe that in many many many billions of years in the future, the expansion may rip apart every atom in the universe. It's called the "Big Rip" theory, and yes, it is a little kooky. RachelW 22:13, 30 January 2012 (EST)

Oh, and as to the question of scale: You basically have to look at objects in other galaxies for the expansion to become noticeable. I won't see any expansion looking at stars in the Milky Way galaxy, but I will if I look at a star in a galaxy much farther away. And actually, the galaxy closest to us, Andromeda, is being drawn into our galaxy by gravity and so is not rushing away from us like most other galaxies are. RachelW 22:19, 30 January 2012 (EST)

Thank you. So I got it wrong, the theory states expansion is accelerating, not decreasing. Question: Will an observable object 13 billion lights year away be 13 + y billion lights years away in y billion years? Rob Smith 23:16, 30 January 2012 (EST)
Well, as we said before, for every 3.2 billion light years away you are, the speed increases by 73 km/s, or 45 miles per second. So, for an object 13 billion light years away, it will be traveling at about 180 miles per second relative to the earth, or 5.7 billion miles per year. So, in say, 1 billion years, that object will have traveled approximately 5.7 billion billion miles, or 970,000 light years, a change in distance of much less than one percent. RachelW 23:34, 30 January 2012 (EST)
Not quite. There's a bit of a compound interest effect involved. Every second another 73.8km gets added to the distance, and that's expanding as well. Over a few billion years that can add some real distance. --GeorgeLi 00:27, 31 January 2012 (EST)
The distance equation wouldn't be exactly linear, of course, but the change in distance really is so small that you can treat the speed as constant and it makes a very good approximation. RachelW 10:23, 31 January 2012 (EST)

Good work on Paul

I am very much liking what you are saying about St Paul. Very well put. Paul saw the light and stopped being a rule-obsessed Pharisee, yet people today try to turn him back into one. We shouldn't let them!--CPalmer 09:58, 23 February 2012 (EST)

That's right; User:Conservative is preaching a Gospel which basically says, "Ye must be circumcised and not be obese." Rob Smith 14:24, 23 February 2012 (EST)

You are unblocked

RobSmith, you are unblocked.

How about creating this project which could be featured on the main page: Conservapedia:Encyclopedia on Communism.

If you wanted and if this helps, this could serve as a template with any modifications you think are necessary: Conservapedia:Encyclopedia of Conservatism. Conservative 06:34, 25 May 2015 (EDT)

Welcome back!

So you were editing as "OscarO" nearly the whole time that you were blocked (all but 5 months)? Impressive. And it says something about the admins' ability to accurately identify sock accounts.

Anyway, you created an enormous amount of Venona material over at Ameriwiki. (Remember that?) There were approximately 3.847 gajillion articles, which I combined into one huge one because I was tired of seeing one of them come up every time I hit "random page". I assume you still have that material. If you don't have it, and you want it, I may be able to scrounge it up from when I exported the whole database before the site died. SamHB 22:03, 28 May 2015 (EDT)

yah yah, I was worried about that and would appreciate it. What happened to wikinet anyway?It died without fanfare and I lost tons of original creations. Rob Smith 00:01, 29 May 2015 (EDT)
I lost a lot too. When I saw that it was going away (long story) I exported the whole database; it's in an xml file, as I recall. I'm not familiar with xml extraction, but it was the best I could do. It's on one of my disks, I believe. I'll see what I can do, but it may take a while. SamHB 00:43, 29 May 2015 (EDT)
How many decent size articles are going to be recovered and put on CP? 05:25, 29 May 2015 (EDT)
I was simply offering this as a personal favor to Rob. I would do the same for SharonW or AlanE. Rob can put his material up if he chooses. If you are wondering whether I'm planning to bring over any of my own material, or anyone else's, the answer is no. It's a very long story, and I won't bore you with it, but essentially none of what I wrote for AW would be suitable for here, for various reasons—it's basically a difference of "vision". Also, what I wrote about science for AW used lots of pictures and diagrams, and I don't have upload rights. There have been a couple of very tiny exceptions, like what I wrote recently about Joseph Warren. I did that from memory. It's very interesting that he was the guy who "pushed the button" and made the decision to start the American Revolution, and I wanted that in the CP article. In any case, there was nothing about atheism and sailboats.  :-) SamHB 22:34, 29 May 2015 (EDT)
Yah virtually all of it is redundant. They're my original versions from WP, CP, and elsewhere. Rob Smith 00:02, 30 May 2015 (EDT)
Are you saying you don't need me to recover your AW material? I'll do it if you need me to, but it's something of a pain. So if you've saved it, or contributed it elsewhere, please use that. SamHB 00:12, 30 May 2015 (EDT)

Welcome back! --Joaquín Martínez 19:03, 31 May 2015 (EDT)

I sent you an email

RobSmith,

I just sent you an email. Conservative 16:20, 10 June 2015 (EDT)

Had no idea this account was unblocked. Thanks. Have U seen my Global jihad essay? It's #16 on Google out of 2.4 million. Or my DAESH entry (well, not all mine) it has been in the top 6 of Google for one solid year now. Rob Smith (talk) 17:15, 23 March 2016 (EDT)
Glad you are getting some readers for your global jihad work. You put a lot of work into it. Same with the DAESH article.
As far as the title of the article "Essay: Global jihad", my guess is that people prefer articles and not essays. You would probably get more clicks if you didn't have the prefix "Essay".
My guess is that your article was too right wing for the website your wrote it for so you had to use the prefix essay.
I could be wrong though. I have had some popular web pages with the prefix essay that rank well for relevant terms at a search engine beginning with a G. :)
Anyways, take a look at my note below and I wish you all the best. Conservative (talk) 17:43, 24 April 2016 (EDT)

Conservapedia's web traffic is up

Conservapedia is one of the top 100,000 websites in the world as far as web traffic according to the web traffic tracking company Alexa,[1]

Thank you for all your contributions.

Conservapedia continues to receive millions of page views per month.Conservative (talk) 17:59, 19 April 2016 (EDT)

re: recent note to me

RobSmith,

You wrote: "Accept my terms for returning...". I already recommended to the owner of CP that you be made a Sysop again. I set up the ball in front of net, now it's your job to spoke it over the net.

There is really nothing for me to accept. Only the owner of CP can reinstate your Sysop rights. Get in contact with the owner of CP and hammer something out.

I also suggest contacting Karajou. You want him to be for it and not against it.

I wish you the best in getting back your Sysop rights. Conservative (talk) 17:11, 24 April 2016 (EDT)

If you hit a wall when asking for your Sysop rights back, I suggest building up some goodwill with some new content at CP and then asking again. If necessary (and I don't think it would be necessary), keep repeating this cycle until your are a Sysop.
I really think it would be easy for your to get your Sysop rights again. You just need to put a little effort into it. Andy liked your content so I am confident things would work out. Conservative (talk) 17:28, 24 April 2016 (EDT)

Kept your content from being deleted.

There was an attempt to delete your Essay: New Ordeal content. I could see that you put a lot of work into it so I merely moved it so it would not be deleted.

I like the term "New Ordeal". It is clever. Conservative (talk) 23:26, 28 April 2016 (EDT)

Put this on Andy's talk page - work something out with Andy - RobS: Another reason why he should be an editor and subsequently be an admin. Something should be worked out

This was originally put on Talk:High_morale_of_Christendom, so as to get Cons's attention, and then moved here. SamHB (talk) 18:45, 1 May 2016 (EDT)
But it might interest you [that's Cons] to know that, back at Ameriwiki (you remember Ameriwiki? No? It's just as well) Rob wrote a gigantic number of articles about Communism in the 30's and 40's, and senator McCarthy, and FDR, and Venona, etc. etc. A biographical page for every person involved in that subject, and Rob is a walking encyclopedia of that. I believe there were hundreds of such pages. They swamped the "random page" thing. That is, when you clicked on "random page", you had a high probability of getting one. It made Ameriwiki look like an encyclopedia of Communism during the FDR administration, while I was trying to make it look like an encyclopedia of Americana and American history. (And mathematics too, of course.) Rob had put an enormous amount of effort into writing those articles, and I put an equally enormous amount of effort into combining them into sections of one huge page. Or several huge pages. Whatever. Rob and I communicated during this, and he appreciated the work I was doing. I assume he has saved all that stuff somewhere.
SamHB (talk) 00:26, 29 April 2016 (EDT)

If RobS has backups of his Ameriwiki articles, see if he wants to put them onto Conservapedia.

I may have a backup; I made an export of the whole web site, as a gigantic xml file, before Ameriwiki disappeared. I may have it on some disk somewhere. But I hope RobS has better things to do in 2016 than put that material up. SamHB (talk) 18:45, 1 May 2016 (EDT)

The middle/centrists appear to be dropping out of America politics somewhat and the far right/alt right and socialist wings appear to be growing. I am guessing there is some topical overlap between socialists and communists as there are anti-socialist communists, anti-communist socialists, etc. etc. etc.

In addition, communism articles and atheism articles at the same wiki is a great match. A good portion of people interested in atheism articles would also be interested in communism articles. The two areas are related as atheism was a central tenet of communism.

I do regret pushing for RobS to lose his admin status. Maybe he will decide to purse being an admin again. I know Andy liked his article contributions. Conservative (talk) 00:53, 29 April 2016 (EDT)

Winograd Commission (Democratic Party)

re: Winograd Commission (Democratic Party)

I made the change you requested. Sorry about my first attempt of "Winograd Commission (Wisconsin)". I did a favor for a friend last night and was up a bit late. I was a little groggy. Your suggestion made a lot more sense. Conservative (talk) 12:48, 15 May 2016 (EDT)

re: Hillary Clinton article

Given present demands on my time, I shouldn't have waded into the Hillary Clinton article and done it in a matter that minimized discussion.

If you want to revert the article to your last version, please do so.

Lastly, I don't see myself getting involved in any of the political oriented articles at Conservapedia in 2016 given my present priorities. Conservative (talk) 12:31, 21 May 2016 (EDT)

re: Hillary article

RobS, you can revert the Hillary Rodham Clinton article and then fill it in if you decide to be an active editor. I clearly said that.

Don't put back in the editorial warning in italics and the beginning of the article. See my talk page comments on this matter. Conservative (talk) 15:56, 22 May 2016 (EDT)

re: Hillary Clinton article - do whatever you want with the article

Do whatever you want with the Hillary Clinton article. I am not going to interfere again with any of your political content.

I will let the other admins/editors who are into politics more work with you on the political articles since they are more interested in politics than I am.

I am going to take a long break from the news and attend to other matters so I won't be doing any wiki content or oversight as far as political topics. Conservative (talk) 22:54, 22 May 2016 (EDT)

re: Detente

I am glad we are now in a period of detente.

Down the pike when I have more time at my disposal and should you remain an active editor, I will once again recommend you get your admin status back.

I have already changed Karajou's opinion so now he is in favor of it. And you are also closer down the field in terms of getting Andy to agree. Andy is a conservative lawyer and they tend to be a cautious lot, but I believe that if you are persistent that this will ultimately win the day. Conservative (talk) 17:03, 23 May 2016 (EDT)

re: You are farther down the proverbial football field and...

A standard football field (note the hash marks running horizontally down the field).

How you you like to make a play that would get you at the proverbial 99 yard line? Within inches of the full admin endzone.

RobSmith,

I heard you are going to get picture upload rights as early as today. I asked for this to happen.

Question: How do you feel about get your Admin rights back, but agreeing to not edit the main page? That would put you on the proverbial 99 yard line. Within inches of crossing over the full Admin yard line and scoring a touchdown. I think if you were to agree to this, it could speed up the process of getting your full Admin rights back. Before you answer, consider this proverb "Inch by inch it's a inch. Mile by mile it's a trial".

It's time to make that play that gets you to the 99 yard line. Do it for the Gipper.

And remember, the prospect of eating a huge salami sausage at one sitting is a startling suggestion to most people. So let's not startle the conservative and cautious lawyer who owns this website. But who can resist salami slices? I think it's time for you to be one salami slice away from being a full Admin. Agreed? Conservative (talk) 17:56, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Sounds like a winner. If I find any good news items or headlines (and I have some good sources), I'll put on mainpage talk.
FYI, I'm sitting right outside (about 150 ft) from a big Trump rally & counterprotest as we speak; two days ago Bernie Sanders was at this same location. The counterprotest is about half the size of the Sanders rally, and the Trump rally is about 3 times the size the Sanders rally was. Also, Bill Clinton is in across town right now, fighting a rear-guard action trying to hold on to what the Hillary people got; Trump's getting top billing in all local media, and Bill is pretty much ignored. RobS aka Nobs01Enter if you Dare! 90/10 Awaits: Beware! 19:47, 24 May 2016 (EDT)
Trump crowd is increasing, and he's not due to speak for another hour & 10 mins. Trump crowd is approaching the same size Obama drew in 2008, and is made up of people of all ages, races and sexes. Anti-Trump crowd is basically the same rioters we've had here during police shooting protests & Occupy Wall Street. It should be noted, I live in the most Hispanic state in the Union where Hispanics outnumber whites, natives etc. RobS aka Nobs01Enter if you Dare! 90/10 Awaits: Beware! 19:52, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

I will try to move this forward. I do have one request though.

Someone whined about your promotion and mentioned a previous block you received from Karajou. I looked through the blog log and a lot of people blocked you in the past. Let's turn the page as far as you locking horns with people when you can avoid doing so.

I might be able to get this done today as far as this proposal. I will be busy this week, but don't see a delay as a no. Conservative (talk) 20:35, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Please check your email. Conservative (talk) 20:47, 24 May 2016 (EDT)

Something about a conflict with GerryV

I came across this: [3] in Recent Changes. I know nothing of what the issue is about. But I wonder if you could contact this person and straighten it out. SamHB (talk) 01:26, 27 May 2016 (EDT)

I just made a pledge to avoid conflict, so sorry pal. You're (and the user account you advocating for) are on your own. RobS#NeverHillary 11:25, 27 May 2016 (EDT)

Picture change Hillary Clinton article

I changed the picture for the main Hillary Clinton article. I didn't want you to lose fence sitters because they clicked off a page with an ugly picture or quickly surmised by the previous ugly picture that the article was not going to be fair-minded.

Just laying out the facts should dissuade reasonable people to not to vote for her. Conservative (talk) 15:18, 28 May 2016 (EDT)

I thought it was a pretty good likeness. RobS#NeverHillary 16:30, 28 May 2016 (EDT)

Hillary and the Children's Defense Fund

If you haven't done so already, I think you should do some material on Hillary Clinton and the Children's Defense Fund. Here is some potential material: https://www.google.com/search?q=hillary+clinton+children%27s+defense+fund&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

I think that is one of her talking points to bolster her image. Conservative (talk) 12:40, 30 May 2016 (EDT)

Incinerating 17 children at Waco covered that; I had planned to put refutations of the CDF of her garbage talking points on the subpage while expanding her abuse of women & child directly in the bio. RobS#NeverHillary 12:49, 30 May 2016 (EDT)
This issue is somewhat related to the Clinton Foundation claiming their donations go to fight hunger, poverty, and AIDS. So the question is, who dominates? do we allow the Clinton's to set the agenda and dictate what goes into her bio by having to refute her fraudulent window dressing and talking points, or does the article go straight forward to facts. RobS#NeverHillary 12:52, 30 May 2016 (EDT)

When are we gonna see any progress on this? RobS#NeverHillary 16:04, 15 June 2016 (EDT)

re: getting you admin privileges

Getting you admin privileges is taking longer than I expected.

I hope you loading pictures which are not in according with either being public domain or uploadable as per the license terms of the picture is not slowing things down. You need to stop doing this if you want to expedite getting yourself Admin privileges. I think you are making my tasks harder due to this matter. There are so many pictures that you could upload that you are free to upload and I think you are possibly hampering your ability to be an Admin. See: Public Domain pictures and pictures with generous copyright provisions and free clip art

I think I may not be able to work on the matter of helping you be an admin for several months. Maybe not until 2017. But I do intend to get back to this matter (if you stop uploading pictures not in accordance with Conservapedia's uploading policy. See: Copyright), but hopefully my assistance will not be needed as you will already be an Admin. Conservative (talk) 12:26, 4 June 2016 (EDT)

No problem. Are you saying I should check those sites you provided and replace what is there already, then ask for deletion, etc.? RobS#NeverHillary 12:38, 4 June 2016 (EDT)
I am about to attend to another matter. To expedite things due to my deadlines, I will delete the pictures that you don't have the rights to have uploaded. You can take care of any leftover cleanup. Conservative (talk) 12:46, 4 June 2016 (EDT)
I fixed thuings. Please don't upload pictures unless they are public domain or you can meet the criteria for uploading as per their license rights such as Creative Commons non-Commercial/attribution photos.

A suggestion to getting you to be Admin sooner

I think if you work with the users in the conversation here http://www.conservapedia.com/User_talk:Aschlafly#Copyright and Andy to have a better picture upload process, you would be a problem solver.

I think being a problem solver might help you be an admin faster. Conservative (talk) 13:30, 4 June 2016 (EDT)

2. Please create these articles:

I think this election is going to be close. I know some people are predicting a landslide for Trump and it may happen, but I still think it is going to be close.

Hate speech

Dear Rob, Americans make a distinction between hate crime laws and hate speech codes. Does this apply in Europe as well? I realize that civil code countries have a different legal structure than common law countries, so perhaps our distinctions do not carry over very well over there. Thanks, JDano (talk) 12:18, 12 January 2017 (EST)

Yes, I think this bares looking into. Coincidentally, I was just reading how American Civil Rights law made certain things a crime, but US law distinguishes between civil and criminal offenses. Maybe we need a lawyer to straighten both questions out. RobSMake Exxon Great Again 12:33, 12 January 2017 (EST)
Rob, I am a lawyer, and assumed that you were too. JDano (talk) 13:25, 12 January 2017 (EST)
No, but I think like a lawyer in evidence gathering for historical reseaech. The rules of evidence are basically the same for making an argument on facts. RobSMake Exxon Great Again 13:31, 12 January 2017 (EST)

Traffic tip for European migrant crisis article

If you want traffic to your European migrant crisis article, I would create the articles below:

I hope that helps. Conservative (talk) 14:36, 29 January 2017 (EST)

Thanks!

You helped make THIS happen.

I have never seen a non-profit website go from below 100,000 rank to nearly a 50,000 Alexa ranking in about a year. And Andy payed zero dollars for content creation/social mediamarketing/email marketing/SEO during this period. In fact, Andy generally has a dislike of social media as you probably know.

And there is no sign of a nearing web traffic plateau. My guess is that Trump supporters/Trump era and the resulting political waves significantly explains the boost in traffic. It was great that you were involved in the Hillary Clinton content before the election. Trump supporters seem very loyal so the traffic boost could be long lasting. It also seems like there is a reawakening of right-wing politics/nationalism that will be long lasting. And right-wing populism and "best of the public" go together like peanut butter and jelly. :)

Thanks again for your efforts. Conservative (talk) 17:19, 13 February 2017 (EST)

A few proposed article renames and template change

Since you have move privileges for articles and I can't do these myself at this point, there are a few articles here that need to be renamed and updated:

I also redirected the Atlanta Thrashers article to the Winnipeg Jets article since the team changed its name with its move to Winnipeg in 2011. Since I also can't edit the NHL teams template either, that template also needs to be updated to change Atlanta to Winnipeg and Phoenix to Arizona in light of those changes in the past few years. Northwest (talk) 19:51, 28 April 2017 (EDT)

Collating the 2 timelines gets confusing once in a while, one lays out broadly Obama et al crimes, the second more specifically​ breaches of international law. Cyber intrusions and abuse of intelligence agencies overlap both.
Benghazigate relates more to foreign aspects, so Hillary's emails really are a foreign policy scandal not a domestic scandal.
As long as there's no big removals from Obamagate timeline, should be okay. RobSThe coup plotters won, for now 17:06, 7 May 2017 (EDT)

User: Karajou sent me and others an email saying he didn't like CP's article on liberalism. So...

User: Karajou sent me and others an email saying he didn't like CP's article on liberalism.

The article needs major improvements.

I am not going to work on it due to time restraints. I spent a lot of time improving the liberal article.

I would use the same approach used with the liberal article. Clearly delineate liberalism from socialism/fascism because they are very substantially different (for example, Sweden vs. Communist China vs. Nazi Germany). But mention how the gap between the ideologies has narrowed in the United States. I don't keep up with European politics to know the situation there as far as the gap other than knowing that China has become more capitalistic. European countries commonly have more major political parties in a country so the situation is more difficult to keep tabs on. Conservative (talk) 16:43, 9 May 2017 (EDT)

We'll have to delineate American liberalism from historic liberalism. Contemporary liberalism has already been separated from classical liberalism. Now we just hsve to divide American liberalism as its own peculiar brand from European liberalism and the rest of the world, and leave it to editors outside the US to reconcile the differances.
Confusions stems from the fact that the US, in its post-WWII nation building phase often presented its brand of liberalism to the rest of the world as the standard which they modeled after and followed. But American liberalism always was a poor caricature of European Marxist and socialist movements that never gained a proper footing (not until Obama, at least, but even now Obama himself favors US Imperialism over the rot he preached to get into office. So I'm not certain you can call Obama transitional. And there are other cracks in the liberal foundation). I'm seriously inclined to approach American liberal less as an ideology and more as a mental or societal disorder. RobSThe coup plotters won, for now 16:58, 9 May 2017 (EDT)
I would work on the liberalism article. But also create 2-3 sub-articles: American liberalism and Western liberalism and European liberalism. The American liberalism article is just a one sentence stub article.
I suggest a Western liberalism article due to the Canadians, Australia, NZ, and South Africa. Conservative (talk) 18:09, 9 May 2017 (EDT)
Since the Brits and Canadians have the most influence in the Anglosphere on the USA, you might want to create a British liberalism article and a Canadian liberalism article too.
Its too bad all this wasn't done before given that CP is a political website. I was largely focused on atheism which is a dying ideology. This had an indirect relation to liberalism given the prominence of the secular left on liberal/leftist politics. Conservative (talk) 18:17, 9 May 2017 (EDT)
Speaking about how the Left is becoming more sympathetic to communism, see this: the California State Assembly passed a bill to allow communists to openly work in government positions --1990'sguy (talk) 18:29, 9 May 2017 (EDT)

Re: American liberalism article

I copied and pasted some of the liberal article into the American liberalism article.

Generally speaking, ideally you want the material in the section for main article linking to a sub-article to have substantially different content. In this case, you want the American liberalism article to have different content than the "American liberalism" section of the liberal article.

So if you want to reword and/or add material to the American liberalism article the would be excellent. Conservative (talk) 19:19, 9 May 2017 (EDT)

I see that the 2020 presidential election article is created. However, the title is 2020 election. Would you please move that to United States presidential election, 2020? --1990'sguy (talk) 17:44, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
The "United States" and the comma are unnecessary and unhelpful to the titles. Very few people would include either, let alone both. Simply "Presidential Election 2020" would be far superior. This isn't Wikipedia, where verbosity is the norm. Conciseness is preferred here. Thanks.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 18:28, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
That's what redirects are for. And "Presidential Election 2020" is not concise, because you have to create a redirect for internal links anyway. RobSTrump now is fighting back against the coup plotters 19:43, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
Andy, I do not think the "E" in your preferred title should be capitalized. When we do CP searches, the are case-sensitive, and most people probably would not capitalize the "E".
Secondly, Andy, every U.S. presidential election prior to 2012 has the title of "United States presidential election, XXXX". We need consistent titles for our presidential election articles. --1990'sguy (talk) 18:45, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
I could've done the redirect; the page needs to be deleted. The entire Category is chaotic, and grows moreso each day. RobSTrump now is fighting back against the coup plotters 19:19, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
I changed the redirect, so it does not need to be deleted. I'll message Andy regarding the category. --1990'sguy (talk) 19:24, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
It needs to be deleted so a page move can be done to its proper name. I think both 2012 and 2016 are screwed.
2008 and 2012 also have subcategory pages for all election related articles. But since every two years, nobody wants to develop or abide by naming conventions, most election articles are just scattered and lost. It is a lot of work to assemble them. Like photo uploads, it woukd be so much easier to categorize things properly when new page is created than all this redundant work later. RobSTrump now is fighting back against the coup plotters 19:36, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
No, it should not be moved there because the "P" and the "E" are capitalized. If you want to be consistent, you should move the articles to redirects that have them lower-case. If Andy will not approve of the name change, maybe another admin will? --1990'sguy (talk) 19:44, 12 May 2017 (EDT)
I agree, it should be lower case. Ask Conservative or Karajou. RobSTrump now is fighting back against the coup plotters 19:47, 12 May 2017 (EDT)

New Template

Hello. I'd just like to inform you that it would be greatly beneficial if you were to assist on working on the following newly created template; Template:Bible Cities

This template was created less than a week ago, and is an attempt to record all the biblical cities of the Old and New Testaments. It would be helpful if you, and other fellow editors at Conservapedia, were to assist in creating articles describing these biblical cities. If you are willing to start making some of these pages, but are not exactly sure how to approach the task, I'd suggest looking at Rhegium or Beeroth, two very (very) recent pages created by myself (Shaaraim is another good example) to get a good understanding at how this thing should be done. If you're willing to go above and beyond, take a look at the page Amphipolis, perhaps the best biblical city page to date. Just to note, this request is optional and you may help out on your own volition.Korvex

DHS, Russia, and the DNC

I see you did not add yet the Obama Administration's lack of effort in combating Russian involvement prior to the 2016 election,[10] the DNC's rejection of DHS help for their hacking,[11][12] Jeh Johnson's statement that no evidence existed of Russian collusion with the Trump Administration,[13] and a Senate probe into Loretta Lynch.[14] to the Obamagate timeline article or the other articles you maintain. Are these appropriate things to add? --1990'sguy (talk) 14:23, 23 June 2017 (EDT)

Oh definitely. Feel free if you like. I suspect there's much more to add as a result of these recent hearings. I just don't wanna see Obamagate get confused or overrun with Trump-Russia allegations, which is the ultimate path members of the intelligence committees of both parties, and the special council, will use to cover-up NSA abuses in the Obama era.
The Russian election involvement ultimately will need to be treated elsewhere in several other articles as part of ongoing modern cyber and electronic warfare. The 2016 allegations are the results of technical achievements, and not a political conspiracy. This is what needs to be clarified in all articles.
The recent ship collision off Japan, for example, appears to be the result of North Korean, Chinese, or Russian (or perhaps sharing and cooperation among them) ability to electronically interfere with US Naval vessels guidance systems. This is being investigated. And this electronic warfare has more to do with a priority cyber intrusion than any media or DNC misinformation over the past year.

Fake news article

You have edited/commented on the fake news article in the past. What is your opinion on these edits I recently made? [15][16][17] --1990'sguy (talk) 12:58, 25 June 2017 (EDT)

On this one, "the mainstream media itself publishes and promotes fake news stories" I'd suggest getting a cite from the White House Press Office whitehouse.gov if possible; I support removing McCain - he's a Deep State operator, only confuses things, is a dottering old fool, and nobody cares anymore; and the other section can go to.
Aside, Trump the TV producer appears to be toying with the press (if he wasn't distracted by legal & legislative problems it would be more obvious). The recent covefef flap, for instance, could be:
  • 1. a simple typo at 3am by a guy suffering from jet lag;
  • 2. a calculated attempt to measure Google Trends in the immediate minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, after:
  • 3 a combination of the two.

The rules of reporting definitely have changed, and Trump is taking internet to the next level beyond what Howard Dean & Barack Obama did. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 15:16, 25 June 2017 (EDT)

Thanks. Do you have any specific suggestions on which whitehouse.gov cite we should use? --1990'sguy (talk) 15:19, 25 June 2017 (EDT)
It could a transcript from his Feb 16 or 17 press conference where he cited CNN specifically, a general statement from Spicer indicting all would be better, or something from Kellyanne Conway on broadcast cable. I'll do a quick search and see if I can come up with something. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 15:27, 25 June 2017 (EDT)
What do you think of this one? May 30 seems to be the date the issue came to a head, and everybody knows VOA is the USG' official propaganda mouthpiece, it can't be accused of being simply one-sided voice of the White House, and we're not showing favoritism to a msm source or blog. As long as it fits the relative context in mainspace.

I liked the article and added it. Thanks! I think VOA is a relatively good source to use, particularly for this. --1990'sguy (talk) 02:39, 26 June 2017 (EDT)

Re: Trump

I think Donald Trump is going to get stuck with the blame for the economic bubble created by the Obama administration and the Federal Reserve.[18]

In addition, TrumpCare probably will not work because it is keeping the "precondition clause" of ObamaCare due to its popularity. People will often not buy health insurance until they are sick. So the health care system will not be viable. Car insurance companies could not be profitable if people could buy their car insurance after their car accident in order to replace their car. Conservative (talk) 22:11, 11 July 2017 (EDT)

How about Ann Coulter's idea that people ought to be able to buy any kind of health insurance they want?
  • Congress doesn’t repeal Obamacare! Instead, Congress passes a law, pursuant to its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce, that says: “In America, it shall be legal to sell health insurance on the free market. This law supersedes all other laws, taxes, mandates, coverage requirements, regulations or prohibitions, state or federal.” [19]
I'm pragmatic. I just want to get what I need, at a reasonable price, if someone will provide it. --Ed Poor Talk 08:33, 23 July 2017 (EDT)

Expansion of right-wing material on the internet

I know Twitter bans and shadow bans right-wingers.

I haven't looked at the latter two items, but right-wingers gaining momentum on the internet is an interesting development. With nationalism gaining ground in Europe and 21st century desecularization occurring, the trend is bound to continue. Conservative (talk)

Dont be so quick to think this is a success. I see way too much of this sort of thing. Look at this closely: 16 YEAR OLD AMERICAN GIRL BEATEN AND BURNED ALIVE BY MUSLIM IMMIGRANT. WOULD YOU SUPPORT TRUMP IF HE DEPORT ALL THE MUSLIMS? But what are the facts here? Yes, a Guatamalan is an American. No, there is no evidence whatsoever the person who torched this girl is a Muslim. Thirdly, what does Trump have to do with this headline? So Facebook gets inundated with this liberal/Leftist Soros-inspired Deep State trollery, and counts the number of 'Likes' as racist Trump supporters. I view this explosion of alleged conservative sites as a real problem unless some sort of self-regulation and oversight is developed, and less a direct reflection of traffic demands by viewers.
In the link I provided, a 16 year old Guatamalan gangbanger and her two male accomplices raided a neighboring village and shot a 68 year old man, probably to get money for drugs. The villagers drive the two males off, and burned the girl (a teenage prostitute who lured the elderly man) alive. A local village gangbanger burnt her alive in the village square in front of the entire village, including children. The killer was not a Muslim. This video has nothing to do with the Muslims. So it is about Central American teenage gangs and drug violence.
There is way way way too much of these sort of links on the internet. Conservatives and Trump supporters need to proceed with caution immediately. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 10:58, 13 July 2017 (EDT)
First, if you go to the Muslim websites in English, often their web marketing is crude (poor web design, no email opt-ins, etc. etc.).
The core problem of the West is its need for Christian revival. If the West saw Christian revival a number of good things would happen such as: the sub-replacement fertility problem would be solved; the Protestant work ethic would occur and a number of other benefits would start occurring (See: Atheism and fertility rates and Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism and Protestant cultural legacies and Christianity statistics).
At the very least, the West has to be more disciplined and hardworking. Singapore transformed itself from a stagnant British colony to being a first class economy though hard work, discipline and having more thoughtful policies. Granted, Singapore did have some good effects from their contact with the West (see: Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism).
A country can't sustain a high level of immigrants who have low productivity and who are troublesome. To do so is an invitation for forcible relocation and/or civil war and/or ethnic cleansing. History is replete with this sort of thing (for example, Reconquista).
Multiculturalism has failed in many countries that have tried it such as France/Germany/Sweden. But there are places which have avoided ethnic/religious conflict over a sustained amount of time such as: Singapore; to a less extent the Philippines as there is conflict due to Muslims; USA, Hawaii, etc. But in the USA ethnic (and the attendant cultural differences. Even in European cultures there are significant cultural legacy differences such as the English cultural legacy of small government and the German cultural legacy of a larger government) are gaining steam in terms of tension/conflict.
John Wesley's preaching is widely credited with causing England to avoid a revolution like France had. Perhaps if evangelicalism continues to grow among Hispanics that will prevent much conflict ahead for the USA. And the USA may learn from Europe's Muslim troubles and keep the percentage of Muslims in the USA low. Conservative (talk) 15:19, 13 July 2017 (EDT)

Email

I sent you one yesterday, and I am writing to you here to verify that it was me. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:38, 18 August 2017 (EDT)

Actually, I received an automated email, twice, that my email to you was not delivered for some technical reason. Please try emailing me -- maybe that will work. --1990'sguy (talk) 23:59, 19 August 2017 (EDT)
Yah, I've had trouble synchronising email with my new device. Still working on it. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 23:54, 25 August 2017 (EDT)
OK. Please send me an email as soon as you can. --1990'sguy (talk) 09:47, 26 August 2017 (EDT)
Email sent. --1990'sguy (talk) 11:54, 26 August 2017 (EDT)

I sent you another one. I would appreciate a response even if you cannot/don't want to do those things. --1990'sguy (talk) 18:12, 3 September 2017 (EDT)

Re: 2020 presidential election

Please look at this article: Who's going to win the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination? PredictIt takes a guess.

Given your significant base of knowledge on leftism, it would be great if you started working on the Bernie Sanders article.

Given Sanders have these advantages: his ability to cause large crowds in 2016, diehard/enthusiastic supporters and ability to raise funds; I would think Sanders is going to win the Democratic nomination. Warren is his leading contender and she is a joke as far as being a strong national candidate. Conservative (talk)

Personally, I think it is more important to expand the articles on Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. They articles are much less detailed, and I think they have a bigger shot in 2020, as seen by media coverage (Harris more than Warren). --1990'sguy (talk) 09:17, 11 September 2017 (EDT)
Harris has already gained the support of Clinton donors and Sanders backers. RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 14:58, 11 September 2017 (EDT)
I have not been following the Democrats very closely. Thanks for the feedback. Conservative (talk) 15:32, 11 September 2017 (EDT)
