I am so sick of all the Concerned and Alarmed idiocies about how firing Comey is the End of the Republic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let’s see if I can ignore Comey for this post.

There’s something about this vid that I really like.

I’m not sure what it is, but I just like watching that.

 

Victor Davis Hanson wonders if Trump can successfully remodel the GOP.  Trump has some help in that, but as we’ve seen, the voters have very limited power to change the gov’t in our particular form of republic. We can change the names of our ‘leaders’, but we apparently have little more power to change the policies than residents of a People’s Republic or even a Democratic People’s Republic.

And this is why

Republicans concentrate on what they like in the Trump agenda — military spending increases, energy expansion, deterrence abroad, tax and regulatory reform, and the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act — and they ignore the inherent contradictions between Trumpism and their own political creed…

In this mainstream Republican view, the role of a superpower is to endure trade deficits to help its less powerful allies and keep the global order prosperous and stable. But Trump’s idea of “fair” trade trumps “free” trade.
Trump is not willing to accept a permanent Midwest Rust Belt as the price of globalization.

Yup. They think that people who want to revitalize American manufacturing are parochial and just not that bright. If we have to pay for their vision of how the world works, well, that’s what welfare is for!

At first he seemed to be defending our fine political betters, but then he noticed reality in a way that’s very intelligent (i.e. agrees with what I think)

More

Unlike doctrinaire Republicans, Trump believes that illegal immigration is a big — and bad — deal.
The Republican establishment’s employer argument is that illegal immigration ensures that the sort of work “Americans won’t do” is actually done. Or, some establishment Republicans believe that undocumented migrants who cross the southern border will one day become conservative, “family values” voters.
Not so Trumpism. It seeks to help the working class by stopping the importation of cheap labor. It believes that secure borders will restore the sanctity of law, and that the end of illegal immigration will lead to greater integration and assimilation of Latino minority groups.

Exactly. The way we integrated immigrants for 200 years is just so simplisme! The Melting Pot is racist and cannot be taught anymore! Diversity is our strength!

While having diverse opinions can be strengthening, we are balkanizing. Immigrants from previous generations are only different in the food they eat and the booze they drink in general. That includes many (most?) Mexicans, although that numbers was a higher percentage of the whole a few decades ago.

Trumpism has no illusions that there will ever be a world of liberal democracies. It seeks instead only to make sure enemies understand that any future aggression will not be worth the anticipated benefits.

Nuke The Moon! baby. We don’t need our enemies to like us, they won’t, we just need them to respect and fear us. Or just fear us. But respect makes it easier to intimidate.

As for dictators such as those in the Philippines or Egypt, Trumpism argues that it makes little sense to snub autocratic friends while cutting deals with autocratic enemies like those in Iran or Cuba.

That’s a great point, why should we be nice to the murderous dictators in China and Iran and mean to non- or less-murderous assholes elsewhere? The asshole in the Philippines isn’t killing his opposition (yet?) and the assholes in Egypt are killing their natural enemies (Christians and insufficiently similar Muslims) but leaving the rest of the world alone. Even Israel mostly.

Obama and Hillary got rid of Mubarak without a plan, Trump shouldn’t do the same. Especially as a sane plan would include us getting involved there after deposing the current dictators. We are done Nation-Building for the foreseeable future. We just don’t have the balls to do it the way we did with Japan and Germany, “Here’s your constitution and gov’t. Meet your new military governor. He’ll be leaving when we can trust you not to be murderous assholes and can trust your neighbors not to invade you and make you differently murderous assholes.”

Now we run away.

On matters of identity politics, Republicans have often sought to play down but not actively oppose racial, ethnic, and gender pressure groups. The strategy has been to not antagonize the ethnic and race industries in hopes of receiving a greater share of the minority vote.
Trump is politically incorrect.

And it’s been hilarious.

Trump just keeps making end runs around Minitrue’s Narrative and the entire We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party is just freaking out. Their weapons are useless!

So we see articles like this from Concerned Republicans Who Only Want What Is Best For The Nation!

Headline

For the love of God, delete his account

That would be Trump’s Twitter account. The one that gives our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters such agita.

President Trump’s impulsive social media habit does little to advance his agenda, it pulls both his fans and critics into endless fights and it has created several major headaches for top White House staffers, including Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway.

That’s funny. Our fine betters in Minitrue, their entertainment arm, the rest of the Democratic party and most of the GOP are forced to change their actions because of Trump’s tweets. He got more action out of the country using social media than anyone since Sarah Palin put out her “Death Panel” deal.

It’s no small thing for a sitting president to appear to threaten a former FBI director. (shit, I thought I’d make it without Comeying V)

After 8 years of Obama threatening everybody from day 1, including police doing their jobs, private citizens, more private citizens,  more private citizens, more private citizens, more pr…(moving on) journalists (both real and suckophantic), our military, businesses… I know I’m leaving some people out, but Trump going after Hillary’s Head Bitch is not even in the same ballpark. Trump telling Comey not to lie about him is not just not wrong, but shows Trump has been paying attention to Comey.

It’s even worse when that same director formerly headed an investigation into the role hostile foreign agents played in the election that swept said president into power.

Still fucking that Russia Hacked The Election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! chicken I see. Once you see that you can safely assume that the idiot who wrote it is not processing reality. And even if it was 100% Russian Hacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! what did they do? The Job Americans Won’t Do, i.e. report accurately on Democrat perfidy and felonyizing. Above we saw that the GOP is all about foreigners doing the Jobs Americans Won’t Do but now they’re against it. Why…. it’s almost as if they use situational ethics where who is on the receiving end decides the morality and ethics of a position!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Assholes.

A non-exhaustive recap of the past week’s crop of Comey Fake News!!!!! that was breathlessly and shriekingly reported and (occasionally) quietly corrected.

If you care. I skimmed it, I don’t really need a reminder of the lies, distortions, contortions and “anonymous” liars they have and are trotting out. The only use for it is that I think Americans are actually watching with dropped jaw as our betters freak out over something they had all, each and every fucking one, called for as little as a week ago.

Speaking of assholes from the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party, John, I hate Veeshir, McCain!

Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, offered high praise for Sen. John McCain on Friday, saying the Arizona Republican’s vocal criticism of President Trump marks his “finest hour.”

“I think frankly this is John McCain’s finest hour,” Schiff said on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

The senior Arizona senator has also been critical of Trump’s “America first” approach to foreign policy,

Exactly. We gave the GOP victories in the last few elections because we didn’t like what the Dems were doing to our nation so what do the big shit sheep…grand poo bahs of the GOP do? Stuff that gets praise from Democrats. Asshole Democrats like Schiff.

 

Speaking of the entertainment arm of the Democratic media/entertainment political complex, The Last (conservative) Man Standing isn’t.

The cancellation by ABC of Tim Allen’s hit comedy “Last Man Standing”…

Allen’s biting and genuinely funny witticisms poking fun at all things liberal. Its humor is balanced, with the show featuring a Canadian liberal son-in-law who gets his points across…

the blue-collar sitcom was ABC’s second most watched comedy this season with 8.1 million viewers in Live +7, only behind flagship Modern Family (8,7 million). It was the third most watched ABC scripted series overall behind Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family….(emphasis me V)

 

So they canceled one of the shows that people actually want to watch for their religion. Someone should tell them that tithing only requires 10%, not bankruptcy. Via Commonsense and Wonder.

 

The NY Post plays Name That Party! about a DA stepping back as he’s being criminally investigated.

allegations he took part in a police coverup involving former Suffolk Police Chief James Burke, who pleaded guilty in February 2016 to federal charges that he beat a man who stole a stash of porn and a sex toy from Burke’s official vehicle.

I don’t get the problem, misuse of gov’t property is a right and Dems covering up their accomplices in graft is how NY works! He looks sorta old, maybe the ass’t DA wasn’t interested in waiting for him to retire.

 

Nothing story about a Republican running for election has “irregularities” in his past, I’d say his mistake is he wasn’t high enough up in the hierarchy of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party to have the necessary degree of impunity.

Former South Carolina state senator Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district, sat on the board of a bank that accepted millions of dollars from the Obama administration’s 2008 bailout.

But I’m linking for the part I bolded. In 2008 Obama was not POTUS, that was Bush’ 2008 bailout.

Norman served on South Carolina Bank and Trust Financial Corporation’s board of directors in January 2009 when the bank sold $64.8 million in preferred stock and a 10-year warrant to the Treasury Department under its Capital Purchase Program, which was created as part of the federal government’s $700 billion bailout.

January, 2009 was when Obama ascended, that was Bush’s bailout.  The one he rammed down the financial world’s throat.

The chief executives of the country’s nine largest banks had no choice but to accept capital infusions from the Treasury Department in October, government documents released Wednesday have confirmed.

Obtained and released by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan educational foundation, the documents reveal “talking points” used by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the Oct. 13 meeting between federal officials and the executives that stressed the investments would be required “in any circumstance,” whether the banks found them appealing or not.

Notice that in 2009 to that member in good standing of our fine media betters Judicial watch was “non-partisan”. (I know I missed a couple commas in there but I’m not sure where so here are a few you can insert  ,,,)

But why is the Free Beacon obfuscating the issue of who started stimuluzing and bailouting while attacking this man as a Friend Of Obama? Is the “journalist” just an idiot or is there some sort of agenda in play?

Ralph Norman, who is running as the conservative candidate in the state’s fifth congressional district,

Are they joining the We’re Better And Smarter Than You Party or is it just that opinionator or are they angry that he’s not a conservative or some other, undisclosed, reason?

Because I’ll tell you what, taking money you’re forced to take by the POTUS from your party is not necessarily a sign that you’re not conservative.

Just something that confused me.

 

This is very messed up. In a story about a Gorsuch dissent (he was against the arrest), we see this.

The New Mexico incident began in 2011 when the student, known only as F.M. in court papers, kept interrupting his physical education class with fake burps. The teacher sent him into the hallway, where he continued burping and laughing as he leaned into the classroom entrance. (emphasis me V)

The teacher called for assistance on her school radio, and soon Arthur Acosta, a police officer assigned to the school, arrived in the hallway, according to court documents.

Acosta took the boy to the school’s office, then placed him under arrest for violating a New Mexico law that prohibits anyone from disrupting the education process. Acosta handcuffed the student and took him to the juvenile detention center, where the boy stayed about an hour until he was picked up…

I think it’s ridiculous that the kid was arrested, expel him if he’s that disrespectfully disruptive, but notice a few things.

There were cops patrolling the school, that’s not often done in schools where it’s not necessary. Maybe the cop knew the kid from previous interactions. Judging from what happened, I’m gonna assume this choir boy/orphanage-volunteer had previously had such disrespectful and disruptive episodes.

Also think about what he was doing.

Acosta’s lawyer says the criminal act was the boy’s “interference with the educational process, not the act of burping.”

Sure, it was burping and laughing, but he was showing a complete lack of respect for the teacher, the other students and the whole concept of school. Further, his actions showed that he was utterly unafraid of any repercussions. From my experience, I’m gonna assume calling the parents would not be a useful exercise.

There are a lot of kids like that, I’m not just saying that just from my teaching experience but from relatives’ kids and their friends.

School cannot work unless there’s respect flowing both ways. Respect for others is sorely lacking in today’s culture.

 

Let’s Tolerance!

First up, we have this.

A Detroit-area high school is holding an all-girls prom

That’s not a prom. Jebus. How can you have a prom without prom-dates? Here’s the Tolerance part.

to create a comfortable and safe environment for girls who cannot attend the traditional co-ed prom for cultural reasons.

So in other words, the girls’ owners (male relatives) would beat them, honor-kill them, cut off their noses or just throw acid in their faces if they act like American girls.

I hate people sometimes. You really should not cater to that shit.

Now, for a little palate-washer, let’s look at the State of American Heavy Metal! They’re bad ass, they won’t cave to intolerant religious assholes who are intolerant!

Megadeth agreed to cut songs that were potentially “offensive” to Muslims after the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) Youth group voiced its objection to them touring the country.

Oh.

I wish to offend no one here. We cut songs for China.”

Really? Megadeth was out manlied by Elton John?

Chinese authorities have hardened their line on foreign musicians, after Elton John infuriated them by dedicating a performance to outspoken artist and activist Ai Weiwei, according to industry sources. Police arrived to interview the singer shortly after he announced that the performance, which took place in Beijing last November, was dedicated “to the spirit and talent of Ai Weiwei”

So sad.

When people try to censor your art, you tell them to fuck off or you just do your deal.

However, he (Jeff Dunham V) was informed by the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture that Achmed should not be mentioned or brought on to the show..

Dunham cleverly side-stepped the issue by introducing a new character; “Who knew that Achmed had a French cousin — Jacques, the dead French terrorist?” he says. “It was Achmed with a beret and mustache, and the audience loved it, thankfully. But I was a bit frightened there, too. I thought, ‘Will they drag me off the stage and make an example of me?’ I honestly thought that was a possibility, as you never know how strict and real these laws are.”

So in other words, a flamingly flamboyent homosexual musician, second only to Liberace in his flamboyence, flaming and homosexuality, and a guy who plays with dolls have more balls than Megadeth!

Still say 80s music has heart and soul?

This made me laugh when I saw it. I’d like to see the entire show, but even his specials only show bits and pieces.

That’s how you do it.

 

Relatedly, Trump appoints a Frenchman, Vladimierre Poutin, as head of the FBI!

Sometimes reality is less funny than fantasy.

 

And then there are times like this.

A judge set bail Friday for an Elkhorn man accused of hiring prostitutes to bare their breasts and strip on his neighbor’s porch

My neighbors just call the cops on me.

Not sure why the cops got involved this time though, it seems to me a ‘Thank You’ was in order.

 

I thought hockey players were exempt from this shit.

Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss has apologized after he reportedly caused an outrage in Germany when it was discovered that he “liked” an Instagram post comparing Hillary Clinton to Adolf Hitler.

Although the way they’ve been trying to Stop Hockey’s Ultra-Violent Ways!!!!!!!!!!!! I should have figured SJW’s were paying attention.

One thing, I wonder if Hillary shaves anything like a Hitler mustache.

*smack*

Sorry, but if I had warned you you wouldn’t have read that and cringed.

The funniest thing I’ve heard hockey announcers say was when Montreal made Pierre Turgeon captain cuz he’s French-Canadian and a NY Islanders announcer said, “That’s ridiculous. If that were the case, the Islanders would have to have a Jew as captain!

The next day I waited to see but nobody freaked out. I figured they were still exempt, but apparently the forces of Tolerance And Love have decided that every aspect of our lives needs to be Toleranced, Loved and Mostly-Peaced.

 

 

I found an inside look at one of the top journalists at the Wash Post!

 

They’re obviously very busy, that must be why their lies and Fake News are so pathetic.

What it’s causing:

Baby it’s hot outside. I’m rereading the Lost Fleet series but it’s not fun when it’s 104 even if I am shaded.

 that’s the screen in front of my porch. It lets some light through so I’m not in the shade so much as less light.

At night, with the moths, that screen looks like one of those WWII “enemy identification” charts that coast watchers and AA gunners would use so they’d know who to report on or shoot, respectively.

 I think that’s a German Henschel 123 dive bomber.

Let’s ‘tube!

The other reason I’m here is I was looking for something grammar-related when I read this

Traditional grammar defines the object in a sentence as the entity that is acted upon by the subject.[1] There is thus a primary distinction between subjects and objects that is understood in terms of the action expressed by the verb, e.g. Tom studies grammar – Tom is the subject and grammar is the object. Traditional theories of sentence structure divide the simple sentence into a subject and a predicate,[2] whereby the object is taken to be part of the predicate.[3] Many modern theories of grammar (e.g. dependency grammars), in contrast, take the object to be a verb argument like the subject, the difference between them being mainly just their prominence; the subject is ranked higher than the object and is thus more prominent.[4] (emphasis me V)

and it made me want to write a post about child abuse, it was also a good reason to get into the a/c.

Before I get into why I have a problem (and I’d bet many of you as well, especially if you have children), the point of the whole thing is that our fine intellectual betters make a game of saying the most anti-reasonable things and then the rest act as if it’s PROFOUND!!! and GROUND-BREAKING!!!! when really it’s just unlearning lessons we’ve spent millennia learning.

Let’s have FrnakJ explain it.

The Alpha liberals are the smaller faction of liberals who create the new and idiotic ideas for other liberals to follow. To put that in more practical terms, they pick the cliff that other lemmings jump off of.(1) The Alpha liberal or pinhead, to use the more common term come in the guise of politicians, activist judges, and the college professor. Often, these liberals are at the higher end of the intelligence bell curve. Why, you ask, would smart people come up with the moronic ideas that liberals are so fond of. Well, I’ll explain.

And he does.

That’s been a long-term trend. People have to say ridiculous things so others can nod and say, “How wise! How profound!” when it’s really just going against what we spent millennia learning.

 

I tried teaching math to a lot of different grades, from 6th to 12th, and they could not multiply even 6×4 without their calculators. A few decades ago it became the fashion that learning math is supposed to be fun and memorizing the multiplication wasn’t fun so… adios basics.

I’ve had something on my mind for a long time that greatly bothers me: the multiplication table. This is because I think that education should be fun — full stop. Memorizing the multiplication table is not fun. But more than that, I believe they are the source of most people’s hatred of math. At the same time, I’ve long thought that one should probably know them. And that created a conflict in me because I thought that it was really only possible to know them by memorizing them. But the other day it occurred to be what hogwash that is.

 

Kids are taught the short-cuts you learn after you learn the basics in stead of the basics.

He mentions a bad way to teach the times table as the reason it’s bad

And he used to do this thing where he would go desk by desk asking each student one question, “Seven times eight?” He went sequentially through the table and the desks, so I always calculated which question I would get so I could figure it out and say it the moment he asked me. In that case, there was clearly some mathematics education going on for me, but it had nothing to do with the multiplication table.

Yeah, see. As you noted he wasn’t teaching the times table so much as teaching to pay attention to shortcut learning. If he had randomized it, you would have learned more. But you did learn a bunch as using the multiplication table gets you to remember it.

Strawman alert!

The rationale for knowing your multiplication table is that if you know them, then you can do things like multiply and divide arbitrarily large numbers. But if that’s true, why were we taught the table from 1 through 12?

Yeah, that’s a nitwitish way to put it and a nitwitish question.

It’s so kids can learn the basics so they can more easily learn the advanced. Like multiplying large numbers, or doing calculus. We could not use a calculator in any of my college calculus classes. It led to leaving the answer in terms of the square root of 2 or pi fairly often, but I was learning calculus, not how to use a calculator.

I have never memorized what 6×7 is. Instead, I know that 6×6 is 36, and so I know 6×7 must be 6 more than that, which is 36+6, which is 42.

So he memorized 6×6 then? No! He ‘knows’ it! Totally different.

The point is that they have to know that 6×6=36 before they can get to “36+6”. I do x9 by multiplying by 10 and subtracting the number, but I was trying to teach math to 11th graders who had to sit and think about the answer to 7×10.

Oh, and they also didn’t memorize the addition tables. So they need their phone to add 6 to 36. Cuz people like the guy above had a theory about making math “fun”.

You cannot make everything in life fun. That’s why discipline and respect are so important.

I think math is fun because I like it. YMMV. I liked looking at the relationships on the multiplication table, but I learned that table before I could use relationships like subtracting 8 from 8×10 to figure out 8×9.

 

My grammar, and punctuation, suck; I. know that. In my defense, I bought a lot of commas, a few years ago, and they have an expiration date.

I had nuns making sure I knew English so I was good but if you don’t use something you lose it. I worked in places where good grammar was considered snooty and rude so I lost it. Which: leads us to-

Dependency Grammar!

a class of modern syntactic theories that are all based on the dependency relation (as opposed to the constituency relation) and that can be traced back primarily to the work of Lucien Tesnière. Dependency is the notion that linguistic units, e.g. words, are connected to each other by directed links.

That’s okay so far, I mean, if you’re going to get philosophical, I’ll give you that. To get to the point, they use that idiocy to teach grammar to kids.

Check that.

They use that idiocy to not teach grammar to kids. Just the way they use their idiocies to not teach math to kids.

Different methods of teaching grammar to kids!

One of the older forms of teaching grammar, diagramming sentences, first appeared in the 19th century. This method involves visually mapping the structures of and relationships between different aspects of a sentence. Especially helpful for visual learners, this method disappeared from modern teaching at least 30 years ago

Yeah, the way that we found that works, let’s stop using that!

Students are encouraged to explore language through creative writing and reading, picking up correct grammar usage along the way.

And right there is the difference between riding a tricycle, a bicycle with training wheels, a bicycle, a Honda 125, a Honda 500 and then a Honda Goldwing and “Here’s the key to the Harley, pick up how to ride it along the way”.

The Teaching is hard! Learning is easy! method:

The inductive method of teaching grammar involves presenting several examples that illustrate a specific concept and expecting students to notice how the concept works from these examples.

This guy is doing it right, these people are doing it wrong. Ready? Now do it!

I was actually with this one until the second sentence

The deductive method of teaching grammar is an approach that focuses on instruction before practice. A teacher gives students an in-depth explanation of a grammatical concept before they encounter the same grammatical concept in their own writing.

But then I realized they weren’t teaching anything, merely saying, “Here’s some stuff. Now look at that and tell me what’s wrong. Figure it out yourself. Geez, what do I look like, a teacher?” The tell is the word “concept”, that’s not an example, that’s a description.

And then I read further

This type of teaching, though common, has many people—including teachers—rethinking such methods, as more post-secondary level students are revealing sub-par literacy skills in adulthood. (emphasis me V, cuz it’s anger-inducingly, anger-inducive)

Well that’s surprising! Both that our children isn’t learning and that it’s still common. Educrats have a theory and if you’re kids have to pay, well, that’s the price they’re willing to make us all pay.

Another method of teaching grammar is to incorporate interactivity into lessons. Using games to teach grammar not only engages students but also helps them to remember what they’ve learned.

Once again, it starts pretty well, I’m all into interactivity, but then veers off into idiocy.

If you are not teaching the basics they cannot learn the advanced material.

How can you know to have agreement between object and predicate if you don’t know what an object is? Or a predicate. Or what I mean by “agreement”.

 

A repost

She knows her son is a lesbian trapped in a boy’s body, because that would be Awesome! Baroness Munchausen by proxy!

Shit like that is rewarded instead of having her lose her kids, all visitation rights and any contact with children.

 

This is even more horrific than the above. It’s one of the most horrible things I could imagine.

Janet Reimer was granted her dearest wish: she gave birth to twins…(perfect control group! V)

Then things went horrible.

were sent to the local hospital for a routine circumcision. Unfortunately the doctor in charge of the procedure was using electrical equipment, which malfunctioned several times. On the last trial, Bruce’s entire penis was burnt off. Brian was not operated on. The family were distraught. In the Sixties plastic surgery was not an option: even today it is not recommended that new-borns undergo penis reconstruction operations…

Then, they went more horrible as a horrible person preyed on their tragedy.

saw a television programme that gave them some hope. Dr John Money, a highly renowned sexologist, featured in a debate about sex change operations on transsexuals. He had brought a transsexual with him who was convincingly feminine looking…

Then other lefties prayed on their tragedy.

Nurture not nature determines whether we feel feminine or masculine. Widely cited in many text books, the case was a landmark study – hailed as proof of the overwhelming force of nurture..

Of course, the “Dr” was still preying

He insisted that to fully understand that she was a girl (the poor kid who had his johnson cut off V)…

A reprieve

Finally when she (he you assholes V) was 13, the family told her (him you assholes V) and Brian the truth. Brenda was intensely relieved as she (he you assholes V) had felt she (he you assholes V) was going insane. Almost immediately she (he you assholes V) turned herself (himself, you assholes V) back into a boy and called herself (himself, you assholes V)  David. David received compensation money for the circumcision…(huh V) (no, I should have said, “duh” V)

Before the end of the tragedy

before driving to a supermarket car park on 4 May 2004 and shooting himself in the head. He was 38 years old.

Did our hero learn anything from his experiment?

Dr Money argues that he cannot be held to blame because David did not accept a female gender identity.

And then blames the parents… but not for trusting him, for not trusting him!

He says that the family delayed making a decision until their son was almost two, just before the gender gate was about to shut.

Way to twist the knife dude.

What that BBC article leaves out is pretty horrific.

This allowed Money to experiment on Bruce while using Brian as a control.

I noticed that above, but the BBC did not see fit to mention it.

It’s also hard to find this because most “journalists” do not think it’s relevant apparently.

However, aged 38 he committed suicide, 2 years after his twin also killed himself.

So sad.

It is believed that they both committed suicide because of the methodology used by Money and his impact on their life

Ya think?

So what happened to this savage, barbaric, modern-day Dr. Mengele?

Money was a professor of pediatrics and medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University from 1951 until his death.

This is that extra twist we expect.

He also established the Johns Hopkins Gender Identity Clinic

The twist they use when they’re pulling their bayonet out of your guts. Don’t hold it against him that his theories are idiotic rubbish, he cared! Just because a family (one that we know of V) was destroyed over this, it’s not his fault! If only they had trusted him more!

So no matter the horror, death and despair he left behind him, he was a professor of pediatrics and medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University until he died in 2006. In other words, when the twins whose lives he ruined killed themselves he was a respected professor at John Fucking Hopkins instead of what he deserved.

 

Now we’ve had a couple generations of kids taught by people with theories who used them as lab rats, some places are far worse than others.

Many had parents who cared enough to do something something and some were those who avoided the obstacles to learning and learned by themselves so they did learn, but many did and are not.

The conclusion, let’s let FrnakJ explain again

Now let’s talk about present day.(11) Inevitably, as time as past, the number of finite good ideas out there have been discovered, and thus there is less and less chance that any liberal will have anything worth saying. Ergo, the ideas they do propose now are increasingly idiotic. And, now only using the weapons of derision to stop them, they strive by sealing themselves off from outside input, huddling together in small enclaves protected form the light of reason. They’re like cockroaches, hiding in the walls, and occasionally emerging from the shadows to wreak havoc.

Or they become judges.

Anyway, liberals are out there, and their ideas are more and more chaotic. And, though everyone calls them idiots, instead of taking the logical conclusion and realizing they are idiots, they think only they are right and all others are wrong and must be crushed.

They cannot admit, even..especially to themselves that they are wrong, so that’s why a discredited method of teaching grammar is still “common”, that’s why people are still arguing against memorizing addition and multiplication tables.

Unfortunately, he wrote this before Obama became God-President, before the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party was in full swing and before FrnakJ had kids.

Oh, the horrors they would subject us to if only they had the power.

Lucky for us, though, their main weapon is the whine.

It was so much better when their only power was the whine.

Oh well. At least now they’re sending their smelly foot-soldiers to attack us so we can kick their asses under the perfectly legal right of self-defense.

So don’t forget, let them take the first swing!

“Reality” is winning on points, but sooner or later reality will stage a comeback. Sorta like how it took a few decades before the reality that the Roman Empire had fallen was obvious to everybody.

First, I’m gonna disagree on this.

 

That’s not irony, that’s reality. Socialism always costs more than free enterprise. It’s just axiomatic.

The comment are funny too. Some people get very upset when you make fun of their religion.

 

Why didn’t we hear about this until now?

A federal grand jury provided FBI agents with subpoenas to inspect Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry devices last year, court papers provided to Judicial Watch show.

And what happened to that issue?

The subpoenas “produced no responsive materials, as the requested data was outside the retention time utilized by those providers,”

Buried. Notice they were “outside the retention time”. In other words, the FBI worded the subpoenas so narrowly that anything not from a certain window (probably 2/1/15 3pm-2/1/15 3:05PM would be my guess) so that they could ignore what they found.

Lest we forget, the DO”J” is full of a bunch of lawless assholes and they made the FBI into Hillary’s Bitches.

 

Some people just refuse to accept reality.

Obamacare overhaul similarly fails, no honest analyst will be able to blame conservatives. Blame will belong wholly to centrist Republicans…

In every election campaign since 2010, every Republican has pledged to repeal Obamacare. Since Republicans rode that promise to a House majority that year, the House has voted more than 90 times for repeal (symbolic votes, all, under President Barack Obama). Now the Freedom Caucus has announced its support for an amended repeal bill, Republicans are closer than ever to finally delivering on their promise. It relies only on centrists to rejoin their party on this crucial issue for which the voters put them in office.

“Centrists” are just members in good standing of the We’re Better And Smarter Than You party. They do not want to lose the power over us that Obamacare gives them. If they don’t control our lives, they cannot demand bribes and kickbacks on how they dole out our rights.

The GOP has lied to us. It’s much harder to keep Obamacare going than to get rid of it. So they’re busy making sure it does not go away.

Our best hope is the GOP fucks us again so Trump just undoes all the memoes, phone calls and executive orders Obama did to keep it from imploding.

 

I watched Shep for a few minutes the other day, he was talking about Venezuela and he acted as if the protestors were getting violent. He showed them in Gas Masks!!!!!!!!! but he called them, “Masks”, as in, “Protestors wearing masks!!!!!!” and then a few images of violent protestors building barricades.

Then he showed gov’t folks shooting tear gas into the crowds. Shep did not notice or mention that maybe, just fucking maybe Shep you leftist piece of shit, the protestors were wearing those “masks” because the murderous forces of the murderous dictator/nee secret policeman were murdering protestors!

Repression in Caracas on Wednesday was probably the worst in three weeks of protests. While usually satisfied with choking us but allowing us some margin of movement, this time they used enough tear gas to make us reconsider coming back, or prevent a gathering altogether.

Yesterday, Juan Pablo Pernalete Llovera, a 20-year old student, was murdered. A tear gas canister hit him in the chest as he protested in Altamira and, sadly, he arrived at Salud Chacao with no vital signs.

Nah. To the piece of shit leftists in Minitrue (hey Shep!), the forces of a socialist gov’t are ‘good’, protestors against them are ‘bad’.

When they don’t ignore it. Venezuela is exploding and it was blatantly obvious that it was going to happen to everyone except our Elites!, cuz they’re idiots.

 

Mister We Could Use A Man Like Phillip Of Macedon Again!

Protesters have stormed the parliament of the Former Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, and assaulted the leader of the Social Democrats in a bid to stop the formation of a new government.

See, they’re thinking.

I wonder how long until that happens here and how Minitrue will blame me when it’s masked leftists doing it. Most righties will just ignore them. There is no rule of law, why pretend we still have it and act as if Congress is important? Only our imperial judiciary and Trump matter right now. Congress has spent the last decades abdicating their responsibilities, ever since Clinton’s impeachment when they realized the media was more powerful.

 

Okay, I don’t know French attitudes, but this makes me laugh. Macron is the far leftist left in the race against the FAR RIGHT HATER!!!!! LePen.

 

“In the next three months after I am elected, there will be a decision on Poland,” Macron told reporters of several regional French newspapers including Ouest-France. “You cannot have a European Union which argues over every single decimal place on the issue of budgets with each country, and which, when you have an EU member which acts like Poland or Hungary on issues linked to universities and learning, or refugees, or fundamental values, decides to do nothing.”
Macron’s comment indicates the staunchly pro-EU candidate, who promises to reassert France’s leading position within the bloc and play an integral role in shaping its future, will actively enforce the bloc’s democratic liberal values at a time when EU leaders are faced with reshaping and shoring up solidarity within the union pre-Brexit.

That’s probably a winner, the EU was supposed to be a way for France to rule Europe, they can’t allow them lowlife Poles and Hungarians to think they control their countries!

Recall, the Hungarians are not allowing Muslim refugees in their country. They even respond to violence with violence! All right thinking people know that you don’t counter violence with violence! You figure out how you angered the poor-downtrodden people and appease them. Unless they’re not an approved lefty group, then you crush them.

 

Okay, I’d say this is a loser.

The National Front’s history of anti-Semitism intruded on the French election campaign again on Friday as polls suggested front-runner Emmanuel Macron’s 20-point lead may be narrowing a touch.

Marine Le Pen’s far-right party forced acting president Jean-Francois Jalkh to step aside after comments from 17 years ago questioning the Holocaust resurfaced in the French media,

If there’s one thing most French don’t care about it’s who hates the people from That Shitty Little Country. It is pretty funny that the lefties who hate Jews as much as most Arabs are acting all, “Oooh, look at the anti-Semitism!”

 

Speaking of Nazis, I think I found the original maker of Billy Bier.

once was an actual Hitler of shithead relatives — and no, not that one, either. In a quirky twist of fate, the Universe saddled even that goose-stepping genocidal maniac with a slimy, opportunistic, clingy black sheep to ruin his Christmases: Adolf’s “loathsome nephew,” Willy Hitler…

On the strength of his last name alone, Willy gained access to all the parties, women, and cocktail shrimp Berlin had to offer. It was wild. Gaggles of Hitler groupies lined up for the chance to get their Aryan mitts on Willy’s little willy. On the family side, however, things weren’t going too great. Dissatisfied with his crappy job at the bank, Willy asked Uncle Adolf to help him get a better grip on those evil coattails of his. It was around this time that the fuhrer starting referring to Willy as “my loathsome nephew” and accusing him of trying to “climb on my back.”

Sounds like a cross between Billy Carter and Roger Clinton.

 

This is fucked up. I’m not sure who the players are, I do know the TWP are white nationalists but I don’t know anything else about them and I’m not sure if Anti-fa are involved or just mentioned later on. Since the organizers for the rally are all Dems, I’m gonna guess they’re not anti-fascist, just anti-other-people’s-fascists. Like in Iraq how Sunnis liked Sunni terrorists and Shiites liked Shiite terrorists.

Organizers began planning the Rally for Equality and American Values at the University of Pikeville back in February, almost as soon as the Traditionalist Worker Party announced its intention to converge on Pikeville for a rally.

In a statement posted to the group’s Facebook event page shortly before 4:30 today, organizer Ariana Velasquez said organizers unanimously decided to postpone the event, after consulting with law enforcement, public officials and university administration.

In the statement, she said “unforeseen credible threats” forced the decision to cancel in order to protect the safety of participants.

I do have high hopes for this though.

“The TWP has become expert in obeying the letter of the law while getting as close as possible to inciting violence. The ARA and ANTIFA will stand nose to nose with the TWP in an attempt to shout them down. Unfortunately, they may also be planning a more violent conflict.

Now if we could just get the Westoro Baptist FreakShow to get involved we could have some guilt-free violence to watch. Watching nazis beat fascists is hilarious.

 

Has anybody heard about this?

An American paramedic working with a security watchdog in eastern Ukraine has been killed after the vehicle he was in drove over a mine.

The US citizen, who has not been named, was part of a patrol involved in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s (OSCE) Special Monitoring mission in the country.

Two other monitors, a German and a Czech, were injured in the blast, near Luhansk. It has led US officials to call for a ‘full, transparent investigation’.

 

Why haven’t we heard of an American being killed by Tsar Putin I’s cossacks?

But since signing deal the sides appear stuck in a stalemate broken periodically by sharp resurgences of fighting that Kiev and the Kremlin accuse each other of instigating.

Tillerson told Poroshenko that although Washington wanted better ties with Moscow, ‘Russia´s actions in eastern Ukraine remain an obstacle’.

On Monday Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, also called for an investigation to be conducted into the explosion.

Oh, the Russians are going to investigate!

We could lend them some of our crack FBI agents from the Hillary Task Force!!!!, they’re good at covering up crimes.

 

Canada is getting a look at the reality that is their place in the world.

Nobody’s going to invade Canada unless they’re already at war with us, but Canada cannot project power and Russia wants the oil under Arctic ice that Canada wants.

Guess who’s most likely going to get it?

Russia unveils its newest Arctic base

Russia has unveiled a new military base as part of its buildup in the Arctic region, and has provided a tour — albeit a virtual one on your computer.

The tsar willing to go to war to get it. Canada surely isn’t.

Funny, what with their problems with illegal immigration and now a warlike neighbor, they could use a Trump. But they have a Kelso.

 

The reality of the state of politics in America.

A two-bit political gadfly named Thomas Lopez-Pierre has been running for City Council on an outrageous platform that calls for stopping “greedy Jewish landlords” from committing “ethnic cleansing” against blacks.

Yawn. Typical Democrat so far.

as Jewish groups and leaders demanded he be booted out of the Democratic Party.

Wait, why? Isn’t that the official Democrat Party Platform? Black Lives Matter, not zionist lives.

Here’s where I wonder if he’s planning on joining the GOP.

In the midst of this firestorm a GoFundMe called “Stop Thomas Lopez-Pierre Hate Campaign” suddenly popped up and was so successful, it raised $5,781.

But anyone who donated hoping to actually stop Lopez-Pierre is going to be sorely disappointed — because the page was created by the candidate himself to scam money from his foes.

“I call it bait and switch,” Lopez-Pierre actually bragged to The Post.

“I intend to use the money to pay for my marketing expenses. The people who are doing this [donating] oppose me. I thank them for their support.”

How is that different from winning election after election and raking in $millions in donations precisely to repeal Obamacare and then not repealing Obamacare? How about how they boned us on illegal immigration?

So a Dem platform with GOP tactics. A Centrist!

 

I’m all for this.

And now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has examined what happens to the data that’s collected from students using technology in the classroom. They released the results of an extensive survey covering students in grades K-12.

What they found was that little work has been done to protect the privacy of the student information that is collected from both the classroom and from using the online software the schools issue for use at home on the students’ own devices. They found that while many school districts have embraced technology and all of the benefits it can bring to the schools and students, often little thought has been given to one of the unintended consequences of this: the students’ privacy.

School is for learning. Let them learn what their betters think of them. Right now, they seem to think our fine betters give a shit about them. That’s a dangerous belief. Our betters only care about our voting for them, sending them money and shutting the fuck up.

 

Speaking of schools and learning, is Duke actually going to stop going all in on social justice and SCIENCE!!!!!! and actually do some science?

We have another study from Duke University that shows groundwater isn’t being polluted by fracking, despite the cries from the environmentalists that the process, which is used to tap into natural gas resources. It’s been the crux of their narrative against this sector of the economy that’s rapidly growing throughout the country. The study was three years in the making, peer reviewed, and was recently published in the European journal Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta.

 

Heretics! Burn them! They do have to state the obvious to try to keep up their SCIENCE!!!!!!!!!!! cred.

They did say that surface water might be impacted due to spills:

So what you’re saying is that spilling oil on the ground means there will be oil on the ground and it could run into waterways that go through the ground? The deuce you say!

 

Macauley Culkins parents are the scum of the Earth and should be jailed, at least, for what they did to their kid.

If, like so many pop fans, you have always yearned to see a three-minute music video that brings together Bill Clinton, Garfield’s cartoon owner Jon Arbuckle and a Viagra-taking George Washington wearing a virtual reality headset, then your agonizing wait is finally over…

The video features the founding father apparently pleasuring himself to the vision of Kurt Cobain—played by Macaulay Culkin—being whipped, nailed to a cross and declared “King of the Cucks.”

 

Poor bastid. First his parents took all his money and then they sold him to Michael Jackson. So sad.

 

Road Trip?

Sheela-na-gigs are carvings of naked, old women exposing an exaggerated vulva.

More than 110 Sheela-na-gigs have been found in Ireland…

Heritage Ireland mapped the location of every sculpture in the country using National Monument data.

Michael Starrett, Heritage Council Chief Executive, said: ‘HeritageMaps.ie a fantastic tool for learning, discussion and interpretation, making cultural data available to everyone.

Vulvoyage!

 

At least, unlike the Mona Lisa, we know why she’s smiling.

 

Sometimes things that seem so brilliant are the opposite.

Police say an Ohio man called 911 to request a police dog to help track down heroin allegedly stolen from him.

That epitomizes the sentiment most people have had, “It seemed like a good idea at the time!”

 

I did this with a 72 Chevelle Malibu and a dumpster instead of a bicycle and a wall.

The girl bending over into her car turned around just as I hit the dumpster at about 5mph. I didn’t get her number.

Have I cursed at this shit so much I’m just recursiving?

Eh, fuck it. Let’s see what the hell is going on. (spoiler alert: It’s lies and bullshit)

 

Yawn, once again we prove Trump’s “Unsubstantiated!!!!! Claims!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” but that’s not really the point.

The dossier has also been cited by FBI Director James Comey in some of his briefings to members of Congress in recent weeks, as one of the sources of information the bureau has used to bolster its investigation, according to US officials briefed on the probe.

Wait, isn’t Comey the one who wanted someone else to tell America there was no wiretapping of Trump’s peeps?

Just to show exactly how unfuckingsubstantiated Trump’s claims are, another link!

The FBI last year used the controversial “Trump/Russia dossier” as part of its justification to obtain a FISA warrant on Carter Page, CNN reported on Tuesday.

They’re trusting CNN, which is usually shoddy journalism, but it feels right. And by that I mean it tells us what we already knew.

 

High Praise to Harvey for finding this next link.

Color me utterly unfuckingcaring with a soupçon of Fuck Em and a heaping helping of Ha-Ha

Due to this situation, the Soros-funded think tank said that increased deportations (us kicking out illegal aliens V) will likely increase violence in an already crime-ridden region.

In recommendations to the U.S. government, the group wrote that the Trump administration should “refrain from instigating mass deportations or harsher anti-migration measures” against immigrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala.

 

Exporting your vicious, murderous criminals to America: It’s not just for Islamic Shithole countries anymore!

 

Wait, murderous, commie dictators steal stuff from capitalists?

General Motors has stopped doing business in Venezuela after authorities took control of a factory in what GM called an illegal judicial seizure of its assets.

Once again, color me utterly unfckingsurprised. One point, it’s their country, their courts and their judiciary, that makes it perfectly legal.

I can’t wait until the murderous, commie dictators in China start taking Apple’s shit. That’s gonna be fucking high-larious.

 

So the murderous Syrian dictator had a little ceasefire/reconciliation deal. Since it’s the Middle East, you know what that means!

The L.A. Times is reporting that the Syrian government used weapons of mass destruction in a zone created by “reconciliation deals.” Rebels in other contested regions were given safe passage to the zone if they would leave. After the rebels moved they were attacked.

Your Shoelaces Are Untied!

 

I was going to scale these up in levels of “horrific” but I’m not sure if there’s a real ladder, they’re all pretty fucking horrific. Some are just directly so while others are more subtly horrific in that they illustrate where we are as a society and civilization.

 

This is horrifically hilarious. Our fine social, moral, intellectual and political betters seem bound and determined to make Chelsea Clinton The Great Blight Hope!.

Hyping the entertainment magazine’s latest cover, Co-Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller gushed this week, “How cool does Chelsea Clinton look on our Power of Women, NY, cover?”

Welcome to the liberal media’s manufacturing of “cool.” Leather jacket? Check. Overzealous airbrushing? Check. Humanizing grin? Check. Democratic establishment pedigree? Checkity-check-check.

This is just the latest attempt by The Media Resistance to make Chelsea Clinton a thing. The same liberal lunatics in the press who rage about the Trump children’s nepotistic privileges champion the “refreshingly outspoken” daughter of the Clinton dynasty — who, at 37 years old, will receive a “Lifetime Impact” award from Variety on Friday for her “humanitarian work.”

That sad, drab, personalityless scion is just pathetic, I can’t even work up a dislike, which says a lot since I’ve been a member of the VRWC since before Hillary identified it.

 

This one seems less horrible, but this is an “Elite!!” college where our Elite Meet To Compete!. As a teacher in a few high schools, I’ve met more Drs of Lefty  Studies who cannot even speak English, much less write it. “This is where your classroom is at.” Sigh.

This is the intro, They call it “Hudson U” but for the record, I’d bet it was NYU, YMMV.

The author of the following essay is a Professor at a top-ranking, metropolitan U.S. university. The names of both university and professor have been fictionalized to protect the professor from retaliation.

So he cannot talk about what they’re doing for fear of retaliation. They are fundamentally incapable of change.

Just to be clear, most of my faculty colleagues are well-educated, bright, and dedicated teachers

The rest of the article belies that statement. Like this

Some of the faculty members with less than impressive credentials hold positions of significant authority in terms of curriculum development. They serve as chairs of various sub-programs within academic units, and have influence over curricula, both within and beyond the program.

Those are the people in charge. They’ll hire people even more stupider to make themselves look better in a positive-reinforcement that will (is?) oscillate (ing?) out of control.

In a more recent election for writing curricular chair, my competitor accused me in his mission statement of writing books and publishing essays. He treated these as blemishes or sins that somehow disqualified me for the position. “I haven’t written any textbooks. I don’t like textbooks. I don’t have a Ph.D. or scores of academic, scholarly publications to my name,” he wrote

So having the necessary skills for the job is bad. Elite!

Let’s end on this, I could do a full post on this article but it’s just not worth it.

I mentioned that I had received an email from one of the candidates and shared it with the committee members. …

The candidate could not write. I also pointed back to her application letter, which was similarly awkward and error-laden. My committee colleagues argued that “we do not teach grammar” in our writing classes.

There’s your problem right there.

 

Now, I knew why Ann Coulter wanted to go to Berkeley (for all the publicity and hilarity of violent, immature, fascists), but I couldn’t figure out why Berkeley wanted her to come. I mean, they’re not in the free speech and listening to other points of view business.

This link is really only horrific for this line.

Bestselling author and conservative firebrand Ann Coulter scheduled for an April 27 speaking engagement at the University of California, Berkeley, home of the Free Speech Movement decades ago and now the home of the Totalitarian Anti-Speech Movement, but the event has been canceled due to security concerns. That’s not stopping Coulter, however, who intends to proceed with the event anyway, according to The Washington Examiner. (emphasis me V)

That was then, this is the Glorious Now!, free speech is only for the right (left) people!

 

The most horrific story you’ll read all day (so long as you stop reading after this post I guess, it’s ugly out there)

A Georgia teen accused in the brutal slaying of her grandparents earlier this month partied with her boyfriend in their house while the bodies began to rot, according to officials.

Police said that Cassandra Bjorge, 17, and her boyfriend Johnny Rider, 19, sealed the doors and windows to contain the stench of the decomposing bodies so they could throw a party at the home in Lawrenceville, Georgia.

How do you get evil like that?

 

A little horrific chuckler.

It’s 21st century horrific, I call it, “Don’t worry, I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie!

A man fell to his death on Tuesday while trying to evade arrest by rappelling 11 stories down a Brooklyn apartment building using a rope of tied-together bed sheets.

Dude.

 

Nother one that could be titled, “I saw this in a Three Stooges Movie” where someone pretends to be dead to get out of paying a bill.

An elderly man has died while receiving a lap dance at a strip club in Texas…

The club’s manager said White was ‘unresponsive’ when his dance finished, and after the dancer initially thought the sexagenarian could have been trying to get out of paying his bill,

 

Or was that a Marx Brothers movie? Eh either way, if he had just stuffed his last $20 into a strippers g-string he might have met his life goal. You can’t take it with you after all.

 

How can you tell Britain’s economy is in the shitter?

Willy Wonka got towed.

 

Below the fold, some hottasery. It’s been a while.

(more…)

There’s only a little, peripheral, funny in this bit of endy.

This week in Higher Ed!

James Madison U. Gives Students Seven Page Guide to Free Speech
UNC Chapel Hill Marked First Amendment Day With Panel on Safe Spaces

 

 

That’s a messed up week.

James Madison U has a seven page guide to free speech. Methinks that’s speech that’s not so free.

What makes it especially fendy is that it’s at the university named for the man who’s most responsible for the Bill of fucking Rights.

You know, the man who helped write the rules for our whole nation, including the part about free speech, that’s fewer than 7 pages long.

Can we force James Madison U. to change its name because of cultural appropriation. He’s an American, they shouldn’t be using his name at an anti-American university.

 

Now this is a bit of really endy with a part that makes it even endier.

(L.A. County Sheriff Sargeant) Owen went behind the building, where the gunman shot him with a stolen gun then stood over his body and fired four more times, McDonnell said at a news conference.

Horrific.

With this bit about the press conference on the execution.

(Sheriff) McDonnell rejected any suggestion that Lovell, who is black, may have shot in self-defense

Self-defense. Which fucking “journalist” started asking about self-defense? In an execution.

Another good man murdered because of the rhetoric of the Obama admin, Hillary!, Minitrue and the rest of the Dem party.

 

No linky, but Trump must still be doing pretty well because all I see are stories about him saying the kind of thing Bill Clinton does, with Hillary! saying a man like that doesn’t belong in the White House, stories about “Senior GOP Want Trump To Step Down!!!!!”, yeah, we know. They’ve wanted that since about a year before he was officially nominated, and stories about how Trump is losing in the polls.

Watching CNN, you’d think nothing else in the world is going on but that Trump said something Bill Clinton would do and the hurricane.

 

I think we need some funny, so you gets some funny.

Police appeal for information about chicken crossing road

 

Although I’d bet the NY Post wouldn’t think it was funny.  they should have written that headline.

That’s Cultural Appropriation!!!!!!!!!

 

First up, we have the Puppy Blender’s case where the U of Tenn “investigated” his tweet suggesting that people who are being threatened by mostly-peaceful protesters should “Run them down”.

As we all know, when a minority (certain minorities generally) attacks whitey, it’s always whitey’s fault and defending oneself is itself aggression.

Ace write

Do you think the University of Tennessee wishes Glenn Reynolds to know — to reallly know — he’s free to speak?

Or do you think they intended to install a Censorship Inside Man in his head, causing him to mind his p’s and q’s?

 

Sure they lost one with the puppy blender by biting off more than they can stomp and spit on, and I’d bet he knows he won so this won’t change his behavior much, but the less powerful will see it and be careful accordingly.

Others are starting to notice we’re in 90s redux.

I can’t believe I have to write about “cultural appropriation” again/now/anymore. But as another Clinton veers toward the White House, and a new Blair Witch movie debuts, why shouldn’t the Permanent Floating Nineties Revival embrace the other accoutrements of that decade, especially the asphyxiating political correctness that never did go out of style?

 

I see I’m not the only one who hated that decade and isn’t happy about bringing it back. I do wonder when people will start to notice that at least in the 90s we had won the Cold War and now we look as if we’ve lost it (by becoming much more commie) and Obama is rekindling it abroad.

In previous decades the remakes weren’t always bad (The Last Remake of Beau Geste was particularly good), but in this decade they all suck.

Why isn’t this in more newpapers than just the Washington Free Beacon?

Several Afghan nationals undergoing military training in the United States disappeared from U.S. military bases this month, according to Pentagon and Homeland Security officials…

Three of the Afghan military trainees fled from a Pentagon training program two weekends ago during the bombing spree in New York and New Jersey by Afghan-born bombing suspect Ahmad Rahami, raising concerns among security officials that the missing Afghan students may be linked to terrorism or plans for attacks in the United States.

If you asked yourself that question about other places reporting on it, smack yourself. Geez, that might help Trump! It Has To Be Ignored!

Talk about a maroon.

A Middle Tennessee Uber driver has been suspended after police say she refused to give a ride to a man and his service dog.

First, what are the police doing getting involved in that? That’s not a police matter, that’s a ‘Call Uber and complain” deal. Jebus.

But what that ‘person’ didn’t realize is that she’s not enough of a protected class.

Some Muslim cab drivers are refusing service to a growing number of passengers with alcohol or dogs, and officials at Minneapolis-St. Paul International airport are trying to fight it.

“Trying to fight it.” and losing.

She should have said she was Muslim and it’s against her religion. Jeez, is nobody paying attention?

Speaking of not paying attention to reality and our fine media betters ignoring anything that could Help Trump!!!!!, Hillary!

The email deal is just too murky to actually blame Hillary! for it!!!!!! I mean, there’s just no proof it was a cover-up!!!!

CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook on Sunday to answer why an IT worker who maintained Clinton’s private email server referred to a 60-day email-retention policy as a “Clinton cover-up operation.”

So CNN was on the job!!!! They uncovered it!!!!

In an interview on “State of the Union,” Tapper asked why an employee of Platte River, which hosted Clinton’s private email server, referred to the policy of deleting emails during the time after Clinton was out of office as a “cover-up operation,” a comment the IT worker told the FBI was a joke.

It Was A Joke So Spike that! We Can’t Help Trump!

 

Another narrative is that Hillary! Has Experience!!!!!!

Evidence shows she left the State Department in shambles and our nation weaker. Her record at Foggy Bottom disqualifies her to be president.

Her failures go beyond leaving four Americans to die in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, the ridiculous Russian “reset” and the carnage in Syria that she and President Obama idly watched unfold — and that gets more horrific daily.

A string of investigative reports from the Obama administration shows that she botched key management jobs as secretary of state, threatening American lives and our diplomatic secrets.

Clinton’s State Department repeatedly rebuffed requests for additional security for the vulnerable compound at Benghazi, Libya. The result? Heavily armed terrorists were able to storm the compound and kill Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Can’t Note That!!!!! It Might Help Trump!!!!!!!  She’s A Political Heavyweight Who Has Experience!!!!!!

This from the media still pretending to believe her “non-contagious, made-up pneumonia” bullshit.

Inclusion: It’s Only For Some People!!!!!

You can think that “all lives matter” – you just can’t say it.

The outgoing president of the National Association for College Admission Counseling faced an uproar after he spoke the forbidden phrase of solidarity with humanity, regardless of a person’s race or creed, at the group’s conference Thursday.

Inside Higher Ed reports that Phillip Trout’s initial apology statement did not include the talismanic phrase “black lives matter.” He simply apologized for having “offended and hurt so many people” with words that are “not right,” and promised the association’s board would spend more time “addressing issues of race and human relations.”

That’s as funny and endy a deal as I’ve seen all…uhhh….last 20 minutes.

 

I love this one, it goes against the narrative. Lawrence KS has a great twitter feed.

 

One problems, what are they culturally appropriating a black man!!!!!!!!! Shouldn’t they be shooting him instead of using him as an illustration? Bastards!

Look at this that we found via Zilla

Someone made that up and it’s good so we’re going with it.

 

Someone made this up, but it wasn’t stupid enough.

An assistant professor at the University of Houston recently agreed to distribute “emotional first-aid kits” to students, apparently not realizing it was a satirical ploy by James O’Keefe.

The funniest part? Trick question, the whole dam thing is hilarious.

Don’t believe me?

To help students deal with such burdens, the emotional first-aid kits contain a baby blanket, chocolates, a plush kitten, a bag containing the smell of lavender, ear plugs, a genderless pastel teddy bear, hand written notes, and a pacifier.

(wait for it….wait for it…)

Only the pacifier gave Schindler any pause, though only out of concern that students might take them the wrong way. Instead, she suggested that the kit just contain a note encouraging students to suck their thumbs.

Yeah, argue with that. James O’Keefe was trying to be over the top ridiculous and that nitwit quadrupled down. High-freaking-larious.

 

You don’t have to make this up.

Palantir Technologies co-founder Peter Thiel is evidently paying the price for backing Republican nominee Donald Trump, as the Obama administration has slapped his company with a frivolous lawsuit alleging “racial discrimination” against Asians.

We’ve seen how the Obama admin works for too long, it’s Chicago machine politics writ large across our nation.

Most Transparent Administration Ever!

 

I wish I was making this drudgetaposition up.

Refugees terrorizing Germany, how do authorities respond?

The number of migrants under suspicion of links to terrorism as well as the amount of investigations against potential terrorists in their ranks is on the rise, the German Federal Criminal Police (BKA) told the Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung newspaper….

Senior German officials have reiterated, though, that there should be no “general suspicion” against asylum seekers. “We must not put all refugees under general suspicion, even if there are ongoing investigations in specific cases,” German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said.

I started with a different story for the next one but then I asked myself, “Can it be even more stupider?” The obvious answer was “Yes!!!!!!” so I put Dresden mosque German Minister Thomas De Maiziere into a search engine and voila!

Someone blows up a mosque in Germany, how do authorities respond?

German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere called the attacks “outrageous” and condemned them sharply.

“Aggression against people who are practicing Islam is increasing in Germany,”…

Fortunately, people didn’t get hurt, but we don’t want these things to happen in Germany.”

 

Huh. So on the one hand we have German rulers importing terrorists and telling their serfs to stop being so intolerant.

On the hand, we have a mosque blown up and German rulers are telling their serfs to stop being so intolerant.

On the gripping hand, carep scrotum!

It’s funny how often our fine social, moral, political and intellectual betters do not have any respect, or even liking, for the countries they ostensibly represent.
