Castle Garden at Gruyeres, Switzerland

Good Morning! We have some weather in the USA this week. They had some weather in the Alps last week, and we have some photos from the Gardening Thread's Swiss correspondents. I thought we could take a little virtual trip.

And we have some garden reports and catalog dreams. And Hank Curmudgeon sent along this piece on 6 benefits of garden-based learning. Get those kiddos in the garden. Have some fun.

Does the American Psychological Associaltion believe in science?

—Open Blogger

Why does the APA hate chivalry?

Back on January 8, before the Gillette ad accidentally affirmed the value of the traditional patriarchy (thanks to J.J. for the tip), Ace wrote a piece on the American Psychological Association's effective declaration that traditional masculinity is toxic masculinity.

Well, I keep seeing stuff about the Gillette ad, but I am not seeing as much commentary in the big news outlets about the APA's new guidelines, which are more important in the long run. I thought it might be a good idea to follow up on Ace's post, which got down to the nitty-gritty:

Men must be made into women. Women are the perfect working model; men are the defective deviation from the proper functioning of the model.

You should probably re-read the post, as it offers a good explanation of the reasoning behind the new guidelines. Since Ace's post, I have seen a few other interesting observations.

Insty put up an excerpt from a WSJ piece by Erika Komisar entitled, Masculinity Isn't a Sickness. It starts:

In my practice as a psychotherapist, I've seen an increase of depression in young men who feel emasculated in a society that is hostile to masculinity. New guidelines from the American Psychological Association defining "traditional masculinity" as a pathological state are likely only to make matters worse. . .

The truth is that masculine traits such as aggression, competitiveness and protective vigilance not only can be positive, but also have a biological basis. Boys and men produce far more testosterone, which is associated biologically and behaviorally with increased aggression and competitiveness. They also produce more vasopressin, a hormone originating in the brain that makes men aggressively protective of their loved ones.

You Know BuzzFeed's "HUGE SCOOP" That NeverTrumpers Like John Podhoretz Spent All Day Jacking Themselves Off To? Mueller's Office Has Made the "Rare" Move of Specifically Denying That Report

—Ace of Spades

If you were wondering why I didn't mention the story, even to do what Nice Deb and some honorable others did, which is to point all the ways in which this "story" seemed like bullshit from the start, it's because almost all of these bullshit stories turn out to be bullshit, and they will be exposed as false within 24 hours.

And I refuse to waste my time, or more importantly your time. (Oh, why am I lying? I was honest the first time: most importantly, I don't want to waste my time.)

It's been about 379 times that "The Walls Are Closing In on Trump" and "If this is true, it's all over for Trump."

Even a former hardcore NeverTrumper wrote to me today pointing out all the typical pussies and dimwits who claim they're Totally Totally Immune to Conspiracy Theories but spend all day pushing the left wing's favorite conspiracy theory, one written by Hillary Clinton's Chief Conspiracy Theory Architect, Syd Blumenthal.

And I'm not just saying that -- reports from the Clinton years noted that Syd Blumenthal rose as a courtier because he knew how to appeal to Hillary Clinton's self-justifying, self-pitying persecution complex, by dreaming up conspiracy theories for her to believe in. He invented the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, after all.

He also wrote the first drafts of what we now call the "Steele Dossier," though Steele seems to just have mostly rewritten Blumenthal's original reports and slapped his name on top of them to give them the veneer of credibility. (Or, at least: the veneer of having not been written by Syd Blumnethal.)

Other reports were written by Cody Shearer -- and take a gander at the sorts of "sources" he pushed into the media in the past.

But NeverTrump, which claims to be "The Intellectual Wing of the Conservative Movement," can't help falling every time for conspiracy theories that would have made Richard Mellon Scaife blush in embarrassment.

It amuses me -- astounds me, really -- that people who pat themselves on the back so vigorously for being about the conspiracy theories of Alex Jones (and call for him to be deplatformed to engage in what turns out to be an actual thoughtcrime) are so eager to promulgate the conspiracy theories that flatter their egos and their sense of the world.

So anyway: The BuzzFeed story about Michael Cohen claiming that Trump told him to lie about a building project in Russia (which is weird, because Don Jr. testified about two such projects in congressional testimony, so why direct a shyster to lie?) is total bullshit.

Please go out there and congratulate John Podhoretz and the translucent soybag Alex Griswold for being So Super Smart to fall for yet another leftwing/NeverTrump fake-news con yet again.

BTW: "The Intellectual Wing of the Conservative Movement" doesn't seem all that smart, really. They seem to have failed to notice that one of the two "reporters" on this story is an old left-wing fever-swamp favorite, Jason Leopold, who claimed he had it locked-down solid and double-checked that Karl Rove had been secretly indicted in the Valerie Plame non-matter.

So now he's once again pandering to his fever swamp base once again and promising a Very Merry Early Fitzmas.

And of course the Intellectual Wing of the Conservative Movement falls for it just like the fever-swamp left-wing does.

But don't draw any conclusions from that! Just because they constantly cite the left wing, defend the left wing, repeat the left wing's talking points, drink with the left wing, go on the left wing's TV shows... don't you dare suggest that they might have something ideologically in common with the left wing!

They're just smarter than you -- and as their left wing palz say, "Reality has a liberal bias."

Bonus: Let it be known to all cucks -- White Knighting for the left wing damsels and mansels won't stop you from being smeared as "alt-right."



Do I Have This Right? The conspiracy theory the leftwing and they're tight-as-ticks NeverTrump allies are going with is the Donald Trump, who is either a billionaire or a several-hundred-milionaire, sold the country out to Russia and became their Manchurian Candidate for $150,000 in FaceBook ads and a "complex spearphishing" attack on the DNC that consisted of writing to Jon Podesta just straight-up asking him what his DNC password was?

Trump voluntarily became a Russian Agent at age 69 for $150,000 in FaceBook ads plus a "complex spearphishing attack" that a nine-year-old could have performed in between clearing screens on Lego Avengers?

Do I have this right, "Intellectual Wing of the Conservative Movement"?

Jonah Goldberg Plagiarizes My Political MacGuffin Insight Without Attribution

—Ace of Spades

Here's Jonah Goldberg, plagiarizing me, stating that The Wall has become the MacGuffin of Trump's life-movie:

The border wall is now a MacGuffin, and that’s the problem.

A MacGuffin is a term of art in screenwriting. It's the thing the hero wants but the bad guys are trying to get, and therefore it drives the action of the story. In John Huston's The Maltese Falcon, the Maltese Falcon is the MacGuffin. In Raiders of the Lost Ark it's the Ark. In Dude, Where’s My Car? it's the car.


The term -- though not the idea -- was reportedly coined by Angus McPhail, a screenwriter who worked with Alfred Hitchcock. But it was Hitchcock who popularized the term more than anyone else, even though his definition differed slightly from the conventional one.

"The main thing I’ve learned over the years is that the MacGuffin is nothing," Hitchcock explained in a 1962 interview with French director Francois Truffault. "I'm convinced of this, but I find it very difficult to prove it to others."

What Hitchcock meant is that the audience doesn’t need to care about the MacGuffin. All the MacGuffin needs to do is justify the effort of the hero, and all the audience needs to do is care about the hero.

The border wall isn’t nothing, but in the context of the partisan fight over the shutdown, it might as well be. For those who see Donald Trump as the hero of the story, what really matters is that he triumphs. For those who see him as the villain, what really matters is that he be defeated.

This is what I wrote in 2013, in a piece which has been referenced many times in conservative media, including, I'm pretty sure, by people at NRO, making the case that the media only cared about Obamacare as the McGuffin of Obama's movie:

In a movie or book, "The MacGuffin" is the thing the hero wants.

Usually the villain wants it too, and their conflict over who will end up with The MacGuffin forms the basic spine of the story.

In Raiders of the Lost Ark, the MacGuffin is, of course, the Lost Ark. Indy wants it; the Nazis have it. This basic conflict over simple possession animates a two hour long movie.

Alfred Hitchcock noted -- counterintuitively, when you first hear this -- that the specifics of the MacGuffin don't really matter at all to a movie. He pointed out that the audience doesn't care at all about the MacGuffin. The hero in the movie itself cares, but the audience doesn't.

In one Hitchcock film, the MacGuffin was some smuggled uranium hidden in vintage wine bottles. But Hitchcock noted it didn't matter if it was uranium in wine bottles, or a fragment of a diplomatic dispatch from the Nazi high command, or a hidden murder weapon, or photographs proving a Senator's affair.

The Lost Ark in Raiders of the Lost Ark could have easily been replaced with some missing Shankara Stones from a Thuggee temple, or the Holy Grail. In fact, that's exactly what they changed the MacGuffin to in the sequels.

No audience member really cared if the Nazis wound up with the Ark of the Covenant....

But an important sounding MacGuffin is just another way to increase the audience's emotional attachment to the Hero, not to the idea of possessing the MacGuffin.

And that, of course, explains all you need to know about the abnormal political situation we find ourselves in, and the Cult of Barack Obama.

For Obama's fanbois, this is not politics. This isn't even America, not really, not anymore.

This is a movie. And Barack Obama is the Hero. And the Republicans are the Villains. And policy questions -- and Obama's myriad failures as an executive -- are simply incidental. They are MacGuffins only, of no importance whatsoever, except to the extent they provide opportunities for Drama as the Hero fights in favor of them.

Does "Jonah's" article seem to be making the same point I did, which, by the way, was original when I made it? (But not when he made it.)

Does he seem to be using the same language?

Even the same examples?

Yeah, because he didn't write this piece. He merely remembered it.

This is plagiarism, and yeah, Jonah Goldberg read my article. Do I have to do a twitter search to find him referencing it?

I'd like an acknowledgement from NRO.

Update: Looks like someone at NRO is willing to link the article Jonah stole from the "show notes" from his podcast, but Goldberg himself refuses to link it the article he writes.

Is he going to claim it's only partial plagiarism because sources were acknowledged elsewhere?

Pro-Tip, Jonah: "But I don't like him anymore" is not, in fact, a license to plagiarize people. "I don' wanna acknowledge him, he criticizes me!" is not a free pass to steal ideas and wording from someone and deny the most basic attribution.

But tell me about #MuhPrinciples, Jonah.

Given that I'm the real author of this NRO piece, I think I'm going to have to demand the standard NR freelance article rate as payment, as well as a prominent "Adapted from an original piece by Ace of Spades" credit.

And I'm not kidding. This is plagiarism, straight-up. Pay me.

I'm not serving as an unacknowledged, uncompensated ghostwriter for cucks.

Someone Ran That Search... and found this:

QUOTE: About three years ago, the eponymous "Ace" from the legendary Ace of Spades HQ blog wrote a brilliant little essay on "The MacGuffinization of American politics."

Jonah Goldberg on NRO, May 6, 2016

A three-year old acknowledgement doesn't count as far as acknowledging the new borrowing of the idea, Jonah. It's not a perpetual license.

I'm pretty sure NR's legal department can verify this. I'm sure your syndicator, the Tribune Group, has a legal department that can verify this as well.

By the Way: Jonah stole the MacGuffin idea on Special Report this week, too. Was it yesterday? The day before?

So he cribbed it on FoxNews, too.

I didn't say anything about it publicly because I granted him the Extemporaneous Speech latitude. You can't cite every source in extemporaneous speech. (Actually, I try to, and I even cite sources when chatting with friends, not wanting to take a lick of credit that isn't my original insight, but I'll grant that not everyone is as much of a stickler about it as I am.)

But this is written. This is an article he's apparently selling/syndicating through the Tribune group. He had time to edit this, reflect on this. Think about whether he'd properly sourced all ideas or quotes he'd... borrowed from others.

And he decided to not even note the idea that the central idea of his whole article -- which he's getting paid for a lot more than I got paid for my original post -- came from someone else.

Extemporaneous speech, I give you a pass.

A written article that you edited and then went through over another editor's desk?

No. There is no free pass for deliberate, well-reflected plagiarism.

Bruce Ohr Testified That He Repeatedly Told Senior DOJ and FBI Officials That the Dossier Was Suspect and Paid for By Hillary Clinton, But the DOJ and FBI Hid That From the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Anyway

—Ace of Spades

Trust your political commissars masquerading as law enforcement and intelligence officials.

Virtually everyone at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department involved in the FBI's counterintelligence probe of candidate Donald Trump knew from the beginning that the investigation, dubbed "Crossfire Hurricane," was based on shaky opposition research compiled by a Trump-hating former British spy and funded by Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Bruce Ohr, the demoted associate attorney general, testified to Congress last August that he repeatedly warned top officials at the FBI and DOJ about Steele's bias and Fusion GPS's conflicts of interest, yet this information was kept hidden from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

And to add insult to injury, instead of investigating the officials who actively participated in the dossier hoax, Special Counsel Robert Mueller hired several of them to be on his team to investigate President Trump.

...

Ohr testified that he stressed that the information he was sharing came from Trump's political opponents in the Clinton camp and warned that it was unverified and likely biased.

"When I provided [the Steele information] to the FBI, I tried to be clear that this is source information," he testified. "I don't know how reliable it is. You're going to have to check it out and be aware. These guys were hired by somebody relating to--who's related to the Clinton campaign, and be aware."

He also told the team that Steele was "desperate that Donald Trump not get elected" and that his own wife, Nellie Ohr, worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that compiled the dossier.

According to a leaked transcript of Ohr's closed-door testimony to the joint House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees last Aug. 28, he waved all these red flags well before the FBI filed its October application for a surveillance warrant against Carter Page.

Strange that Ohr felt the need to warn the DOJ and FBI about Steele's bias and unreliability, but the DOJ and FBI felt the need to hide these exact same warnings from the FISA court.

And this is also a problem: The "Crossfire Hurricane" team claims to not have known nothin' about no dossier until September 2016, but Ohr says he told the team about it on July 30.

That's important, because the Crossfire team continues lying about whether these unverified dossier reports were used to secure the FISA authorization. Their claim is that they couldn't have relied on the dossier, because they didn't even know about it.

But they did know it, and lied to a FISA court to conceal what they knew about it.

The five top DOJ and FBI officials who signed off on the four successive warrant applications -- James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Justice Department officials Sally Yates, Dana Boente, and Rod Rosenstein -- appear to have violated statutes.



Say, isn't the Special Counsel prosecuting a lot of people for making false statements to investigators?

Will they be likewise investigating themselves?

And this might shake your faith in government, but it turns out Adam Schiff might have been lying about this the whole time:

Cuckshed vs. Cuck Cruise

—Ace of Spades

Jim Swift accuses Seth Mandel of being sloppy with facts, despite being an editor of Cuckshed Weekly.

Seth Mandel accuses Jim Swift of being funded by a hard-left billionaire in a three year campaign against the GOP.

They're both right, of course.

So here's the Cuck Drama:

First, someone asked Seth Mandel why the Washington Examiner was publishing a story about prayer rugs being found on the border, given that the claim has only a single source, and a previous 2014 story about prayer rugs being present at migrant detention centers turned out to be false. (Non-Muslims really don't know what prayer rugs look like, usually.)

Seth Mandel replies that he had nothing to do with that story, because it was printed by the Washington Examiner newspaper, which he doesn't edit, not the Cuckshed Weekly magazine, which he does:

She refuses to say Israel, a nation, has a right to exist. Hoover keeps asking the question, and Mallory begins lievading (when you evade with a lie) by saying "people" have a right to exist. Not a nation, not A People (in the sense of a nation).

Jews have a right to exist. Just not in their own country.

Then she goes Full Pimp and declares she's done answering questions about these impertinent Jews.

New York Times Editorial: Democrats Should Admit They're In Favor of Open Borders and Just Go YOLO With It

—Ace of Spades

No one's in favor of Open Borders, except for 85% of the political and media class (including the allegedly conservative media class being kept fat and happy by their corporate angels).

At least, no one admits being in favor of open borders to the rubes.

But this editorial suggests its time to drop the masks.

NY Times opinion writer Farhad Manjoo says it's time for the Democratic Party, or some brave person in it, to drag the Overton Window to the left on immigration. He believes there's a solid case to be made for open borders and it's time someone made it.
Imagine radically shifting our stance toward outsiders from one of suspicion to one of warm embrace. Imagine that if you passed a minimal background check, you'd be free to live, work, pay taxes and die in the United States. Imagine moving from Nigeria to Nebraska as freely as one might move from Massachusetts to Maine.

There's a witheringly obvious moral, economic, strategic and cultural case for open borders, and we have a political opportunity to push it. As Democrats jockey for the presidency, there's room for a brave politician to oppose President Trump's racist immigration rhetoric not just by fighting his wall and calling for the abolishment of I.C.E. but also by making a proactive and affirmative case for the vast expansion of immigration.

He's certainly playing up the bright side of this politically, but the actual reasoning is a bit, err, confused.

When you see the immigration system up close, you're confronted with its bottomless unfairness. The system assumes that people born outside our borders are less deserving of basic rights than those inside. My native-born American friends did not seem to me to warrant any more dignity than my South African ones; according to this nations founding documents, we were all created equal. Yet by mere accident of geography, some were given freedom, and others were denied it.

Much more at the link.

He has discovered the "bottomless unfairness" that people who are American citizens are American citizens and people who are not American citizens are equally not American citizens.

And this unfairness must be fixed by making every person in the world American.

Note that the #Woker segments of Corporate Shill "Conservatism" were very quick to dismiss this as merely being an editorial in the leading Democrat/liberal newspaper in America:



I guess it's not just the acknowledged Democrat media figures saying "YOLO."

Hey, snazzy blazers with nautically-themed buttons aren't cheap!

Look, this is supported by both kinds of People Who Matter, liberal Democrats and liberal Republicans!

Trust Your Establishment Betters, peon. They want what's best for you, and also, seven billion non-Americans yearning take your place.

Mark Krikorian's Center for Immigration Studies Sues SPLC Under RICO Act

—Ace of Spades

They're alleging wire fraud and RICO violations that amount to racketeering, all used with an eye to harassing those with non-NPC political opinions.

One of the most prominent groups advocating for stricter immigration went to court Wednesday to demand a judge order the Southern Poverty Law Center to stop labeling it a "hate group," accusing the self-described watchdog of running an illegal racket to silence political opponents.

The Center for Immigration Studies says the SPLC's accusations that it is racist and anti-immigrant are wrong and have cost the nonprofit support and financial backing by scaring people away from doing business with the center.

The center brought its challenge to U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by filing a civil complaint under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act against SPLC President Richard Cohen and Heidi Beirich, who runs the group’s Hatewatch blog.

Mark Krikorian, the Center for Immigration Studies executive director, says his organization doesn’t meet the SPLC’s definition of a hate group and the Alabama-based watchdog knows it but persists anyway -- which he said was evidence of the racket.

Other groups use the SPLC list to deplatform people, which has resulted in CIS losing donations.

But CIS isn't a racist group even under the SPLC's broad definition, as "immigrant" is not a race.

...

Because it doesn’t meet the SPLC's definition of a hate group yet the SPLC uses that label online, the center said, it amounts to wire fraud in violation of RICO.

The center says it wants a judge to award damages and order the SPLC to remove the "hate" label, and it wants the SPLC to affirmatively state on its website "that CIS is not a hate group."

RICO has been used to settle other thorny political clashes, including by the National Organization for Women, which in the 1980s and 1990s filed civil RICO claims against pro-life activists at abortion clinics.

I doubt that this will work, but I don't mind visiting a fraction of the harassment on them that they inflict on others.

CNN: Nancy Pelosi Isn't Lying When She Dishonestly Claims She's Only Postponing the SOTU Over "Security Concerns." No, She's Merely Executing a "Crafty" "Political Play" (Which Involves as a Central Element a Huge Lie)

—Ace of Spades



Jazz Shaw notes that CNN is eager to call Trump a "LIAR" about everything, and so wonders why, even though CNN admits with a big wink-and-grin that they know she's lying about the reasons for the SOTU gamesmanship, why they're not calling this a "lie" but merely a "cunning" stratagem and crafty "political play"?

It couldn't possibly be that, as with Barack Obama's "If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor" lie, uttered hundreds of times, CNN approves of all the lies that advance the Democrat political agenda?

Nah.

This is an apple or whatever.

He also canceled a planned trip by several of his Cabinet members to the annual economic forum and schmooze-fest in Davos, Switzerland. So where is the downside to *any* of this? I'm telling you, this government shutdown is getting better and better each day."

The Morning Report - 1/18/19

—J.J. Sefton

comflop.jpg

Good morning kids. The weekend is here and what a week it's been, capped off by President Trump's canceling Palsi Pelosi's PR junket and international shopping spree at the last second, which someone here labeled "the pimp-slap heard 'round the world," to be followed up by the proverbial kick in the rear end of dumping her luggage in front of her office. This man has absolutely shredded so many narratives and pure political bullshit over just this past month alone that you'd swear it was the Democrats that got wiped out last November instead of taking control of the House mere days ago. And he's not doing this out of meanness or spite or pettiness; he's doing this to underscore the deadly serious nature with which he treats our national security and sovereignty as well as the Democrat-Left-Media Complex's lack of seriousness and indeed eagerness to keep America vulnerable.

For all the self-righteous cucks and schmucks out there about to collapse onto a fainting couch because the crude orange man with the combover and Queens accent gave them the vapors, this is what fighting back looks like. Much as I loathe them, I always envied the fact that the Dems, even when out of power, never gave an inch and in fact were even that much more shrill and strident since they knew that the GOP would defer to "their friends across the aisle" in the interest of comity and al that rot. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but those days are over. Trump is giving the Democrats and their Media handlers a dose of their own medicine and now, suddenly, irritants like Lindsay Graham, Ben Shapiro and all the rest find it childish, petty and beneath the dignity of the office and all that crap. Sorry, but in the immortal words of Andrew Breitbart PBUH, fuck you; war. And you better start acting like it is because that's exactly what we're in.

With the wall still unfunded and yet another bought-and-paid-for migrant invasion "caravan" slithering north towards the border, Trump lays out yet another truth bomb about the Democrat Party, a hack-in-black invents a right out of whole cloth that an illegal can sue law enforcement to prevent deportation, a follow-on piece underscoring the need for this President to now just ignore what is, in point of fact, an out of control and rogue Judiciary that is usurping legal Executive Branch authority, and lastly a sour note about college grads protesting the increase in H1-B visas.

Now, to the Democrat-Left Crime Blotter: BLM white night "Talcum X" is getting blasted on Twitter for threatening to sue a black female critic, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus sure lives high on the puerco, and Daniel Greenfield exposes the utter fraud that is now the Anti-Defamation League.

"Shutdown" Theatre: President Trump has cancelled an administration delegation trip to the Davos economic summit, Marsha Blackburn is high on holding the SOTU address in the Senate while maybe the shutdown precipitating not having these speeches at all could be a blessing in disguise.

Politics: Gallup poll shows America's biggest concerns are government and immigration. I will assume it means out of control government and open borders and not the Socialist viewpoint of those terms. The 2020 Democrat field is pretty flaccid, Ocasio-TacoRosado is giving the Democrats agita, a long-serving GOP congressman suddenly retires just days into his fifth term, Max-Scene "mikva" Waters wants money for homelessness (yes, when Dems get our money they create homelessness), Virginia governor's soak-the-taxpayer plan is DOA in the legislature, and two fine essays, one from the great Thomas Sowell, on the vapidity and violence of Dem-Leftist rhetoric.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: a potentially huge story where a conservative immigration watchdog group has filed a RICO suit against the SPLC, in the wake of the vicious attack on Karen Pence we have two links on the ramping up of the Leftist war on religion (specifically Judeo-Christianity), another big win as the 5th Circuit rules against Planned Mengelehood vis a vis the undercover filmmakers who exposed them, an old lesbian couple loses their suit against a retirement community that refused to let them live there (tolerance is not acceptance), the media sure isn't covering the 2020 Dem prexy race like it did the GOP in 2016, and the Other McCain on the "climate of hate" myth.

Mueller Cover-Up of Democrat Crimes and the Coup: a top Obama aide lied to the DoJ about Manafort, Mollie Hemingway on the Mueller team actually colluding (that's c-o-l-l-u-d-i-n-g) with Fusion-GPS before the 2016 election and all of this means we are indeed a banana republic... if we can keep swallow it.

Guns, Guns, Guns: in the wake of some of the in-your-face protests that could get more than just ugly, a female Virginia legislator is proud to open-carry, Austin gets smacked for violating a state gun law, a warning about credit card companies as de-facto/surrogate gun-grabbers, gun crime stats fly in the face of Leftist propaganda, and the fate of highly successful "MeatEater" now that a big-time gun-grabbing Democrat has purchased a majority stake in the company. I suspect it'll get a Gillette to the jugular.

Foreign Affairs: Terrorist car bomb blast kills 21 at a Colombian police training camp (stink-eye at Maduro), a Yellow Vest protestor gets shot in the head by a French cop (Eiffel Tower-ing inferno?), the Krauts nab a Farsi spy in the Wehrmacht (stood up at a wall on the Bendler Block or kissed on the cheek by Merkwurdige Merkel?), fight the Chi-Com intellectual property larceny and USAID will finally cut off the so-called Palestinians. Also, Trump will ramp up US missile defense hugely and yes, let's get the hell out of Afghanistan.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Sarsour, the Hamas Louse, sez Mohammed loved people but just hated humanity.

Domestic Scene: Abolish the TSA? Yes, please! Trump renominates his pick to head US government broadcasting organ who was previously derailed by Corker and Menendez LLC.

Money, Money, Money: A look back at the life and legacy of banking/investment innovator John Bogle.

Healthcare: The Fifth Circuit lifted an injunction forbidding Texas from stripping Planned Parenthood of Medicaid funds and healthcare wonk Betsy McCaughey on the fraud of Medicare for All.

Education/Brainwashing: Dems set to start lying about universal pre-K ahead of 2020, a tale of two professors, and UC Davis dances on the grave of the beautiful young police officer gunned down at 22.

FemiNazism: two more articles on the Gillette ad disaster.

Hither and Yon: a look at the March for Life, angry broads still want Louis C.K. to die, about the danger of a disappearing culture of trust, PETA tries to outdo Gillette, Paul Mirengoff on the birth of "institutional racism," the fraud that is cultural relativism, and lastly two essays on how the left is attempting to destroy the career of James Watson, part of the famed scientific duo of Watson and Crick who discovered DNA, naturally because research into genetics might not be all that appealing to the social justice lynch mobs for obvious reasons.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

Congressman Ilhan Omar Says That Lindsey Graham Should Be Thrown Off of a Wall (Or Words to That Effect)

—Ace of Spades

Not just her, of course. All of the super-pro-gay #Woke Hollywood people are pushing gay jokes and innuendoes pretty hard.

First up: Jim Sciutto interrogates Omar on her evidence-free claim that Lindsey Graham is "compromise," neatly ignoring his three months of pushing the evidence-free Hillary Clinton/Sid Blumenthal/Cody Shearer conspiracy theory that Trump is compromised.

Apparently the conspiracy theory isn't cooked up by The Right People, like Blumenthal and Shearer, then you have to offer evidence to back it up.

Here's Omar's original gay-smear tweet:

GameStop Tranny Who Went All Xe-Hulk Claims He's Super-Angry About This "Malicious Misgendering"

—Ace of Spades

This sounds like a job for... Superma'am!


"I was so angry at that point because, literally, five or six times he had called me Sir. He got me so fuming angry and I was cussing," Moore said.

People on the internet responded to the viral clip with memes that included Moore's face posted over superhero characters. However, another post referred to [him] as a "Macho Ma'am Tranny Savage."

"Tranny" is a slang term for Transgender that many find offensive and derogatory.

"What's really sad is it's bringing so many bigots out of the woodwork," she said.

However, Moore, a local M.C. and rapper, isn't letting the memes hurt [his] feelings.

[He's] now using her newfound viral fame to raise awareness about the transgender community. [He] wrote a song to get her message out and [he's] in the process of creating a music video.

I can't wait. The cringe will be sumptuous.

Moore said [he] has no regrets about how [he, a male person] reacted during the incident.

"Yeah, I could have reacted a whole lot better," [he, a masculine bull gorilla on steroids] said. "But you know what, I look back at it and if I could, I wouldn't change a single thing. I would do it 100,000 times again. I would kick over that display 100,000 times again. Because my actions were justified. I mean, it was blatant and malicious hate. It was blatant and malicious misgendering."

No, you're guilty of misgendering, Sir.

Video at the link.

Meanwhile, in a rare display of corporate backbone against an NPC attack, GameStop is standing by the employee who was bullied and threatened by Xe-Hulk.

Gamestop is standing by its employee after a video of a transgender woman throwing a fit inside a New Mexico store and accusing the employee of "misgendering" her went viral.

"The incident that occurred between Tiffany Moore and our GameStop associate was unfortunate," Gamestop said in a statement Tuesday. "We believe our associate acted professionally after mis-speaking by apologizing and remaining calm to de-escalate the situation."

This should be a lesson to the Corporate Cuck Fake Conservatives: The reason GameStop stood up for its employee is almost certainly because its customers, gamers, are very notorious for resisting exactly this kind of language-policing bullshit and will punish those who try to inflict it on them.

So maybe instead of Ben Shapiro and the rest of the cucks constantly cooing about #MuhPrivateBusinessDecisions, they can take note of the fact that the left is always pressuring corporations to punish speakers the left doesn't like, and it's only in cases where a company feels some pushback from the libertarian/conservative anti-SJW-coalition that corporations suddenly stop kowtowing to the Maoist left.

Scolding the right to stop pressuring corporations to pursue a neutral political line doesn't mean corporations will pursue a neutral political line. Not at all. Just look at Gillette. These companies are being pressured by the left, and speech-suppressing boycott groups like Change the Terms and Sleeping Giants, and are also being advised by SJW marketing teams to go hard left in their messaging.

Removing counterpressure from the right from this equation doesn't increase the amount of free speech we have. It reduces it, because it cedes the battlefield entirely to the left, and corporations soon realize that the left will impose a cost on them for noncompliance with the radical SJW agenda while the right will just finger each other up the asses while cooing about the absolute right of corporations to be bullied into becoming instruments of the right without any interference or counterpressure from the right at all.

If there's pressure to conform and a cost for noncompliance imposed by the left, and no counterpressure and thus no cost for complying with the left imposed by the right, what would any reasonable, profit-maximizing corporation do?

Why, they'd comply with the left. Every single time (almost).

If there's a large rock that is feeling tens of thousands of pounds of pressure pushing it to the left and no pressure at all pushing it to the right (and holding it in place), which direction do you think that rock is going to go in, Cuck Geniuses?

Equilibrium, how does it work?

And yet rather than grasping this very simple and incontrovertible fact, the corporate suck-up right continues whining that we must permit the left to turn profit-seeking corporations into adjunct political operations aligned with the hard left and never expose them to even social pressure of negative commentary or brand damage or boycotts.

Lawsuit by Former Staffer Claims Sheila Jackson Lee Fired Her When She Announced She Would Bring Legal Action Against a Black Congressional Caucus Staffer Who Raped Her

—Ace of Spades

Sheila Jackson Lee needs to watch some more Gillette "short films."

A former staffer for Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee claims in a new lawsuit that the lawmaker retaliated against her and fired her because she was planning to pursue legal action over an alleged rape by a former employee of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation.

The woman, identified in court papers by the pseudonym Jane Doe, alleges she was raped in October 2015, when she was a 19-year-old intern for the CBCF, by the foundation's intern coordinator at the time, Damien Jones. The woman said she reported the alleged rape to police and told several people, including Rep. Terri Sewell, her former boss and a distant relative of her mother's, but did not pursue legal action at the time.

Several years later, when Jane Doe was working for Jackson Lee, the woman decided she did want to pursue legal action, and told Jackson Lee's chief of staff Glenn Rushing in early March 2018. The woman alleges that she asked to speak with Jackson Lee about it, but a meeting never happened, and several weeks later she was fired. Jackson Lee is chair of the board for the CBCF.

The accused staffer, Damien Jones, worked for Robert Francis "Xavier 'Zavi' Juan-Maria Zapatera-Reyes" O'Rourke, but "Xavi" claims he didn't know about any of this.

Whatever.

Trump to Pelosi: Owing to the Government Shutdown, I'm Deplatforming You From Using US Military Aircraft for Your Vacation and Campaigning Travel

—Ace of Spades

I think the biggest difference between the cuck and non-cuck wings of the Republican party (apart from the cucks being liberals) is that non-cucks valorize audacity and aggression, whereas cucks valorize caution and defensiveness.

This is why there's so much anger from the cucks: They feel that their egos, which are built up based on the idea that being a cautious, cringey pussy is a good thing, are being attacked when people cheer for non-pussies.



This is fantastic.

I can't wait to hear the wailing from the cucks. The screeching that by treating Nancy Pelosi to the exact same level of contempt she's shown to him he has "violated sacred norms" that require "men" to behave like sissies.

Jake Tapper Doesn't Approve. So we know what Jake's Harem will be saying in three minutes.

Jake Tapper has really honeydicked the cucks, hasn't he?



And of course, the cucks start expressing their concerns...



The cucks always support some alternate plan that is not actually on the table, and are always against the plan that is on the table.

Hey Ben, why don't you challenge her to a debate? That always works. You always bring home massive W's when you challenge people to debates on Twitter.


More: A bunch of Democrats are sitting on the Air Force bus waiting to be taken to the airport for their taxpayer-funded military-jet junket.

Their little field trip was cancelled 40 minutes before departure time.

Babylon Bee: "Least Masculine Society in Human History Decides Masculinity is a Growing Threat"

—Ace of Spades

This is completely, absolutely, horrifyingly true.



U.S.--As society becomes increasingly dominated by nerds, hipsters, and computer programmers, people have fixated on what they think is our biggest problem: masculinity.

"It's just toxic and causes nothing but problems," said Elisha Mcewen, a vegan activist and no threat whatsoever to spiders or tight jar lids. "I was sharing my feelings on masculinity with other men in my drum circle, and we all agreed that if we ever encountered masculinity, we would run far away."

Masculinity is said to have in the past been the cause of such things as violence, war, bullying, defeating the Nazis, carving society out of untamed wilderness, and landing men on the moon, but now masculinity is being driven out of society to make sure nothing like those things ever happens again. However, there are reports that masculinity still lurks out there, which is a source of anxiety to modern men and causes them to have upset tummies.

There's more at the link. A couple of big jokes I was too ethical to steal.

Oh, and because I get a lot of questions about this, I thought I'd link this as well:

Google Gay Extremists Melt Down Over the Use of the Word "Family," Outraged That It Implies "Children," Which Is Even More #Triggering Than "Family"

—Ace of Spades

If you're not thinking about homosexuals and homosexuality 24/7, you're a homophobe.

They must be "centered" at all times. Especially by heterosexuals.

But it wasn't just gays who complained. It was also bitter childless semi-heterosexual cat-lady women who for some reason want credit for having children despite not in fact having children.

Google employees melted down after the word "family" was used in a company presentation, documents obtained by TheDCNF show.

Employees were upset that the word was used in a way that links families with children, which they argued was homophobic.

A Google vice president acknowledged that the word "family" had sparked "concerns" about inclusivity.

A Google executive sparked a fierce backlash from employees by using the word "family" in a weekly, company-wide presentation, according to internal documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Many Google employees became angry that the term was used while discussing a product aimed at children, because it implied that families have children, the documents show. The backlash grew large enough that a Google vice president addressed the controversy and solicited feedback on how the company could become more inclusive.

TheDCNF received the documents from a source who insisted upon anonymity in order to share them.

One employee stormed out of the March 2017 presentation after a presenter "continued to show (awesome) Unicorn product features which continually use the word 'family' as a synonym for 'household with children,'" he explained in an internal thread. That employee posted an extended rant, which was well-received by his colleagues, on why linking families to children is "offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong."

He wrote:

This is a diminishing and disrespectful way to speak. If you mean "children", say "children"; we have a perfectly good word for it. "Family friendly" used as a synonym for "kid friendly" means, to me, "you and yours don't count as a family unless you have children". And while kids may often be less aware of it, there are kids without families too, you know.

The use of "family" as a synonym for "with children" has a long-standing association with deeply homophobic organizations. This does not mean we should not use the word "family" to refer to families, but it mean we must doggedly insist that family does not imply children.

Even the sense, "suitable for the whole family", which you might think is unobjectionable, is totally wrong too. It only works if we have advance shared conception of what "the whole family" is, and that is almost always used to mean a household with two adults, of opposite sex, in a romantic/sexual relationship, with two or more of their own children. If you mean that as a synonym for "suitable for all people" stop and notice the extraordinary unlikelihood of such a thought! So "suitable for the whole family" doesn't mean "all people", it means "all people in families", which either means that all those other people aren’t in families, or something even worse. Use the word "family" to mean a loving assemblage of people who may or may not live together and may or may not include people of any particular age. STOP using it to mean "children'. It's offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong.

If you want to say "My gay boyfriend," say "my gay boyfriend." Don't use the word "family" when you only mean "my gay boyfriend." "Family" has always implied children.

If someone's just speaking of a sex-partner or a spouse, they don't need the collective noun "family" to refer to a single person.

You fucking narcissistic brain-damanged c*nts.

Roughly 100 other Google employees upvoted the post, signaling their agreement. Other Google employees also echoed their displeasure with the term. "Thanks for writing this. So much yes," one wrote.

"Using the word 'family' in this sense bothers me too," wrote another employee, who felt excluded by the term because she was neither married nor a parent.

Neither married nor a parent -- so, legally single and without children. But still wants to be included in the word "family" anyway.

"It smacks of the 'family values' agenda by the right wing, which is absolutely homophobic by its very definition," she wrote, adding: "[I]t's important that we fix our charged language when we become aware of how exclusionary it actually is. As a straight person in a relationship, I find the term 'family' offensive because it excludes me and my boyfriend, having no children of our own."

The word "squadron" excludes you or your boyfriend, because you have no planes. Perhaps the Air Force should be forced to stop using the homophobic, exclusionary word "squadron" as well?

"My family consists of me and several other trans feminine folks, some of whom I'm dating. We're all supportive of each other and eventually aspire to live together. Just because we aren't a heterosexual couple with 2.5 kids, a white picket fence, and a dog doesn’t mean we’re not a family," another employee added in agreement.

Hi, I'm a transexual weirdo in a polyamorous relationship with multiple other dregs. We hope to live together in a collective fuck-pile. We would like to be called a "family" like a boring heterosexual family of 2.5 kids and a dog. We hate stereotypes but it's okay to stereotype heterosexuals because Breeders, Am I Right?

Another employee wrote that "using 'family' to mean 'people with kids' is also annoying to me as a straight-cis-woman who doesn’t have or want kids. My husband, my parents, and my pets are my family."

Of course. We should pretend your cats and dogs -- by which I mean "cats" -- are children so that you don't feel left out of a group you've had eight abortions to avoid joining.

Meanwhile, the Cuckservatives are eager to cede more and more power to exactly this set of anti-family, sexual-extremist weirdos to control our speech using more and more intrusive and abusive means of doing so -- how long until MasterCard says you can't have a credit card if you use "family" to include children? -- and will tell us that is the TrueConservative, Pro-Family thing to do.

punk-monkey.jpg

Ace is correct...they hate us and everything we stand for and believe in and want for our families and our country. It's difficult not to assume that when their vitriol is so obvious and so poorly hidden. They believe -- truly believe! -- that they are on the correct side of history; that their world-view is ascendant, that concepts that the founders depended upon in the creation of America are outdated and incapable of guiding the country.

Victor Davis Hanson eviscerates them here, and his perspective is based on a profound understanding of the real arc of history...the one in which statists and anti-freedom zealots build reeducation camps and gas chambers.

A License To Hate

Recently on CNN, former Republican politico and now Never Trump cable new[s] analyst Rick Wilson characterized Donald Trump’s supporters as his “credulous rube ten-toothed base.”

Wilson was not original in his smear of the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump. He was likely resonating an earlier slander of Politico reporter Marco Caputo. The latter had tweeted of the crowd he saw at a Trump rally: “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.”

Was the point of these stereotypes that poor white working-class people who supposedly voted for the controversial Trump understandably ate improperly, did not practice proper dental hygiene, or did not visit dentists—or all three combined?

When challenged, Caputo doubled down on his invective. He snarled, “Oh no! I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off. Someone fetch a fainting couch.”

Caputo’s “Garbage people” was also a synonym for the smears that two career FBI agents on separate occasions had called the archetypical Trump voters.

It goes on, and is well worth a read. What fascinates me is the easy contempt of the very people who have made their lives immeasurably better..the factory workers and wheat farmers and literal garbage men and the plumbers and electricians and carpenters and the guy who cheerfully plows their roads at 2:00am during blizzards...

These are the soft-handed pseudo-men who love the Gillette commercial and wax poetic about inside-the-beltway inanities, but can't change a tire or cook a meal or hammer a nail.

The sad thing about these people is that they feel contempt for the everyman, but the everyman doesn't feel contempt for them. There are plenty of factory workers and ditch diggers in the thread below, looking at some art and appreciating it, but how many NYT columnists have ever changed a washer or shot a deer or dug a ditch?

The Morning Report - 1/17/19

—J.J. Sefton

schuofc.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday and before we get to the continuing meshugas of the border wall and government shutdown theatrics, the FBI announced the arrest of a man who had evidently been plotting a terrorist attack using explosives on the White House. See if you can guess his origins and religious affiliation. And as a sad postscript to yesterday's terrorist attack in Nairobi, one of the victims was an American Jew who survived the 9/11/01 attack. Prayers for all the victims and eternal damnation for the perpetrators and all those who support them, openly or otherwise.

Now, back to the meshugas. Despite all the efforts of the Democrat-Media-Complex to make you think otherwise, the Democrats are losing big time on both the border wall and the absolute disaster that is our immigration policies and the concomitant government shutdown theatre, which as each day goes by sees more and more people coming to that very realization that it is total bullshit, has zero effect on their lives and, more importantly, that they can do very well indeed without it. It seems that House Dems are now openly breaking with Bo-Toxic Female Nancy Palsi Pelosi on this including most significantly her number 2, Steny Hoyer. Rush Limbaugh also played a delicious soundbite of Cuck Schemer in the well of the Senate putting his foot all the way up to his pasty, spider-veined calf in his mouth with this gem:

SCHUMER: Why is our country suffering self-inflicted damage? Because President Trump is using the American government as leverage in an attempt to extract taxpayer money for a border wall he promised Mexico would pay for.

RUSH: See?

SCHUMER: You know, I hear Rush Limbaugh. "He promised this in the campaign." No, he didn't. He promised a wall that Mexico would pay for. He never said once, that I can recall, in the campaign, "But if Mexico doesn't pay for it, we'll pay for it.' Of course, people voted for it! (pause) Or some. (pause) Not that many.

RUSH: See? He caught himself. He stepped in it so big at the end. "Of course, people voted for it," meaning: It's the epitome of common sense to stop illegal immigration. "Of course, people voted for it." Schumer knows the drill. He knows why people voted for Trump...

Limbaugh was discussing the idiotic straw-man argument that the wall is illegitimate, shouldn't be funded, etc. because Trump promised Mexico would pay for it but he states, and rightly so, that it was Trump tweaking the media on the campaign trail exactly the way he encouraged Russia to look for Hillary's 30,000 e-mails - a joke that the Deep State and Media cite as treason and a reason for impeachment. But that's neither here nor there. The salient point is, as Schemer himself said, the American people voted for a border wall, border security and an end to the dissolution of our nation via unchecked engineered mass migration.

And as the Democrats shamble, mumble and fall apart on this, the GOP Freedom Caucus used their time on the podium to underscore the need to secure our borders. Highlights include freshman Rep Chip Roy from Texas (of course) in his first speech at the podium. Also, Daniel Greenfield highlights the other front of the immigration disaster and that is the importation of the cancer that is the space-rock-pedophile-death-cultists, highlighting the child-bride insanity.

And that dovetails nicely into the Democrat Scandal Sheet where we look at the lovely and gracious freshman Rep Ilhan Omar, the one who was elected despite defrauding the government by lying about marrying her brother to get in to the country. But we should give her a pass for all her stellar work on exposing the evil Jooz and how they stole the wonderful land of Palestine (which is only a town in Texas). Also, CAIR that wonderful humanitarian organization that supports the Democrat Party has one of its officials in bed with Hamas. Lastly, a non-I-KEEEEL-YOU item where Ben Rhodes and Susan Rice have allegedly been subpoenaed to testify about Benghazi. Didn't Ben Ghazi and Al Leppo star in a 60s TV show? Or was that Ben Gazzara and Al Lewis? Charlie Gibson might know.

Shutdown Theatre: Trump has signed a bipartisan bill guaranteeing backpay to furloughed bureaucrats (I'd've preferred RIF-ing them entirely) and a couple of good links about not falling for their crocodile tears, Nancy Palsi will bar Trump from the House for the State of the Union which to me is an opportunity to avoid the Code Pinkos and the other assorted freaks to speak directly to the people at some other venue. Meanwhile, as the Senate Dems refuse to see real citizen victims of illegal alien crime, they attend a rally for the bureaucrats who help enact all the evil Socialist edicts they can't pass in Congress, and Loopy-Ocasio-TacoRosado and a few other freshman children attempt to corner Cocaine Mitch and fail miserably.

Elsewhere in politics, Democrat 2020 hopefuls turn a hearing into a total shitshow over climate change, the rap sheet on Kamala-Toe, Kirstin Jello-Brain flops harder than a 1-ton tuna on the deck of a pitching trawler, Kris Kobach on how Dems now acknowledge voter fraud vis a vis a still undecided North Carolina race, this NY public advocate is a real czar-maker, Mitt Romney is a "frosted Flake" (get it?), two good essays on what the Democrat-Left is all about and the great Victor Davis Hanson is optimistic about Trump in 2020.

First Amendment, Fake News Fakery and Censorship: Google's Sundar Pichai definitely lied to Congress about censorship, Google hates "family," Newsweek's Nina Burleigh is bucking for Helen Thomas status, Pakistan's blasphemy laws trump the First Amendment, how the media actually helped Trump in '16 and what to watch out for in '20, and the 121-year-old Yiddish paper The Forward ceases publishing. I will not be saying kaddish.

Mueller-gate: George Papadopoulos says the FBI wanted him to spy on this Joseph Mifsud character (is he still missing?), Senate Intel Chair Richard Burr will not be going after Trump's interpreters, Mueller will not have anything when it's all said and done and Sebastian Gorka has the right idea about the FBI.

Guns: While we're all distracted with the border, Pittsburgh is looking to "steeler" your guns (cue Rothelisberger cap lock comments) and a Federalist piece on 2 Dem gun bills that need to be killed.

Foreign Desk: Iran is huffing and puffing about a spy the FBI nabbed, the EU tells Theresa May to make them a Belgian waffle sammich and kill Brexit, PDT supposedly gave Israel the green light to steal Iran's nuke files, Israel's ambassador slaps Mahmoud Abbas upside the head with a krav-maga truth slap, the DIA uncovers the obvious about PLA/Chi-Com intentions, another Trump shredding of an Obama policy wherein Cuba can now be sued for seized US assets, asylum for the Saudi apostate teen is good but what about Christians in Pakistan, and with 4 US servicemen killed in a Syrian suicide blast, is ISIS really defeated there?

Domestic News: Ben Sasse does some good for a change with a bill to corner the Dems on the anti-Catholic bent vis a vis the Knights of Columbus and nominees affiliated with same, Gavin Nuisance is now ready to tax drinking water which the Left there claimed was a human right or something, the DC mayor shows signs of sanity by vetoing the bill decriminalizing Metro fare evasion, 25 years after NAFTA and the destruction it wrought (I thought we ditched that?), Dem wage hike proposal will kill jobs and IBD shreds the Dem-pimped 70% tax rate insanity.

Church Sex Abuse Scandal: The Pope smokes dope.

Healthcare: Ohio fires doctor who nearly euthanized 30 near-death patients with fentanyl overdoses (oh, Mr. Kasich?), and Oregon's proposed new law is truly Orwellian in every sense of that word.

Red-Greens: Law school funded by the Tiny Tyrant Doomberg is evidently colluding with the Blue State AG's about the climate change law-fare suits, which is totally not kosher at all.

FemiNazism: Denver Women's March tries covering up the leadership of the rogue Secret Service agent who hoped Trump took a bullet, Gillette's disastrous anti-male ad was - surprise! - crafted by feminazis, and the ad manages to wax nostalgic about men that the SJWs have actually destroyed.

Hither and Yon: The President delivered a powerful address on Religious Freedom day, Christian Toto looks at the hypocrisy surrounding a bit from Family Guy and the Gillette ad is in fact an attack on Trump.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

John Sexton: Nancy Pelosi's SOTU Stunt is Just the Natural Next Step in the Leftwing's Campaign to Deplatform all Conservative Speakers

—Ace of Spades

Sexton notes that the writers of Amazon Adulterer Jeff Bezo's in-house newspaper are super-excited by the deplatforming attempt, just as they were super-excited to deny Trump a platform for a national presidential address.

And, get this, "conservative" pundit Jen Rubin agrees. Why, they must be right then! Super-conservative Jen Rubin's never steered me wrong before.

Meanwhile, NeverTrump applauds, pretty sure they share enough Progressive DNA so that their leftwing friends will never do the same to them.

Because, see, they're Principled (TM). They decided whether or not to support the leftwing's silencing campaigns based entirely on whether they approve of the silencings and whether they think they'll be Eaten Last.

So Principled (TM). Just ask them! They'll write thirty "columns" in a row all explaining how very principled they are are. Hell, they'll tank 30 year old magazines by filling it with nothing but repetitive testimonials to their very high principles.

Watergate by Any Other Name: A Blistering Take on Obama's Minions -- Clapper, Brennan, Comey, Lynch, Yates, McCabe, Etc. -- Breaking the Law to Target a Rival Presidential Candidate With an FBI Criminal Investigation That They Pretended Was Not a Criminal

—Ace of Spades

They pretended it wasn't a criminal investigation because the law forbade them from conducting a criminal investigation, given that they had no actual crime to investigate.

So they falsely -- illegally -- framed it as a "counterintelligence" investigation, but this was always a sham; the entire project was to find a crime that they could then launch a criminal investigation over.

The liberal media is portraying this admission that the FBI broke the law as some kind of vindication that their conspiracy theories must be true, because, hey, why would people break so many laws to investigate someone for a crime unless they were rilly rilly sure they'd find a crime eventually?

The Times breathlessly frames its story as the revelation that Trump might have been "secretly working on behalf of Russia." Right on cue, the anti-Trump fraternity went into full-swivet mode. Probably the most comical contribution to this almanack of rhetorical incontinence was written by Max Boot, who offered "18 Reasons Why Trump Could Be a Russian Asset." Reason number one: that Trump, the head of a multi-billion dollar real-estate development company with interests all over the world, had business dealings with Russia. Excellent, Max!

In fact, though, what the Times story revealed was simply that, pace repeated assurances by James Comey, Trump was the target of the investigation from the beginning. As McCarthy notes, "the only thing the story shows is that the FBI, after over a year of investigation, simply went overt about something that had been true from the first. The investigation commenced during the 2016 campaign by the Obama administration--the Justice Department and the FBI--was always about Donald Trump." Moreover,

The FBI and DOJ knew this would be controversial--the incumbent administration spying on the opposition campaign in the absence of corroborated evidence of a crime.


Let's pause to ponder that last bit: "spying on the opposition campaign in the absence of corroborated evidence of a crime." "Controversial? You think? How about nefarious and probably criminal? Richard Nixon is unavailable for comment.

In a way, you have to admire the cunning of the Obama minions. Faced with exposure of their "controversial" tactic, they went to work. "[T]hey designed the investigation," McCarthy explains,

in a way that allowed them to focus on Trump without saying they were doing so. Before Trump was elected, they papered the files to indicate that they were focusing on the Trump campaign or people connected to it, like Page and Papadopoulos. This way, they could try to collect evidence about Trump without formally documenting that Trump was the target.


In other words, we are staring into the bowels of the biggest political scandal in the history of the United States. Americans pride themselves on living in a republic in which the peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of our political life. But what we have here is an effort by one administration to thwart that process. Remember: there was no crime. There was always only the Steele Dossier, that rancid pile of slander that was paid for by Trump’s political opponents. That was the stated basis for the FISA warrants: uncorroborated rumor instigated and circulated by the Clinton campaign.

In other words, they broke the law, and they deliberately broke the law, and they concealed the truth of what they were doing (pro-tip: righteous men do not have to scheme to "frame" their actions in a light that appears to be legal; they can simply state what they are doing without pretense) and now the left, and David French obviously, are praising them for having been cunning criminals and coupists.

Update: Oh, here's a surprise. The FBI continues refusing to release coupist James A Baker's Congressional testimony while, get this, leaking helpful-sounding parts of it to their media friends who they know will give it the right spin.

Former "Republican" and John McCain Aide Turned MSNBC Host Nicolle Wallace: There Is No Strain of Racism on the Left

—Ace of Spades

Before getting to that, let me link this totally unrelated story about the DNC finally disassociating itself from the anti-semitic, Louis Farrakhan lovin' thots of the so-called Women's March, but refusing to say why they're disassociating, and refusing to condemn their virulent antisemitism.

(And anti-white racism, of course, but apparently everyone is permitted, even encouraged, to be racist against whites, so I don't know why I brought that up. I should know my place. Racism isn't racism, and antisemitism isn't antisemitism, so long as a large enough bloc of the Democrat party is animated to go to the polls by it.)

The Jewish News Syndicate is reporting this morning that the Democratic National Committee has dropped its partnership with Women's March....

[T]he DNC would be following in the footsteps of a number of other groups who have distanced themselves from Women's March. Last week the Southern Poverty Law Center quietly dropped its support, though it refused to issue a statement condemning the anti-Semitism of the Women's March. Other groups that have stopped associating with Women's March include Emily's List, the National Council of Jewish Women, and Greenpeace.

...

It's looking like this has been confirmed but, as with the SPLC, the DNC is dropping out without saying anything about why or criticizing the Women's March at all.

So Niccole Wallace is either unaware of all this and thus is an incompetent and idiot who should be fired for inability to do her (easy) job, or she simply... agrees with the virulent antisemitism of the Women's March leadership, and deems a bit of Jew-Hating to be good for the soul.

I'll leave it to this backstabbing traitor to tell us which.

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said there is no strain of racism on the left the same day the Democratic National Committee had to pull out of the Women’s March because of an anti-Semitism scandal.

Wallace’s program "Deadline: White House" devoted a segment to Rep. Steve King’s remark about wishing "white supremacy" was not considered offensive. Republicans voted unanimously to condemn white supremacy today but Wallace was laser-focused on trashing every member of her former party for the comment.

"This does not have a parallel on the left. There just--it doesn't. There isn't. There isn't a strain of racism on the left. I don't--so I think that this gets brushed under the rug. People sort of tolerate--it's been normalized," Wallace said. "How do Republicans sort of get back to doing something decent?"

Matthew Miller, a former Obama official, answered that Republicans "would have to completely reinvent the party" in order to not be racist. "The problem they have is, this is not the message of the party," he argued, pointing to Republicans wanting to stop the migrant caravan as evidence.

This exchange completely ignored the anti-Semitism scandal that has been roiling the left ever since reports came out about Women’s March co-founders spreading conspiracy theories about Jewish people. Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland, two of the march’s leaders, had to appear on ABC’s "The View" Monday morning to defend the organization, but they did not denounce the man at the center of the controversy: Nation of Islam minister Louis Farrakhan.

Niccole Wallace, who until a few years ago was an important and respected member of the GOP Establishment, was recently spotted laughing about Antifa's restaurant harassment of actual Republicans.

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace on Monday cracked that working in the Trump administration nowadays only has downsides, including not being able to eat at restaurants, drawing laughter from her panel.

Discussing the border security impasse between the White House and congressional Democrats that's led to the longest partial government shutdown in history, Wallace and her "Deadline: White House" panel ripped President Donald Trump's "abusive" treatment of his staff.

Wallace said she didn't feel sorry for embattled acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, who Trump reportedly castigated in front of Democratic leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.).

"What is the attraction for people coming into the White House at this moment?" New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay asked.

Wallace called it a "resume buster."

"You need a lawyer...you can't eat at restaurants," Wallace said to laughter at the table.

"You can't eat at restaurants, you can't eat in peace," Gay said. "What is the attraction?"

Angel Moms -- Parents of Children Slain by Illegals -- Protest in Nancy Pelosi's Office; Pelosi Refuses to Even Meet with Them

—Ace of Spades

Meet with American citizens over their concerns? What an outdated idea. The only people whose concerns matter to the modern Democrat party are foreigners, preferably those breaking US laws.

"It's a slap, it's a stab, it's a kick in the gut, in the groin," Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was struck dead in 2012 by an illegal alien, said of Pelosi's and other Democrats' decision not to meet with Angel Mothers.



Apparently Chuck Schumer was also "too busy" to meet with them:




Below, a video report on the protest and Nancy Pelosi being "too busy" pandering to foreigners to meet with US citizens, interviewing Angel Mom Agnes Gibney, herself a legal immigrant, and a second video of Angel Mom Sabine Durden, also herself a legal immigrant, holding up a small urn containing the ashes of her murdered son and noting that her son's ashes prove that this isn't a "manufactured crisis."

She also wants Democrats to build the wall.

The Left and the Media (BIRM) Attack Karen Pence for Teaching at a Christian School, But They're Totally Not Anti-Christian

—Ace of Spades

Will they be also attacking Muslim schools which also require an adherence to traditionalist mores about sexuality?

Or is it just the Christian religion that is to be attacked without pause?

Immanuel Christian School is a K-8 Christian school in Springfield, Virginia, where the wife of Vice President Mike Pence will now teach art twice a week and be known by her students as "Mrs. Pence." Immanuel adheres to Christian teachings and reserves the right to refuse applicants or expel students who engage in homosexual or transgendered behavior, or otherwise violate "the moral principles of the school."

According to the school's Parent Agreement, families must "acknowledge the importance of a family culture based on biblical principles and embrace biblical family values such as a healthy marriage between one man and one woman."

...

Former White House aide and current CNN commentator Keith Boykin called Trump-supporting gay people "self-hating," in response to Karen Pence's new job.

Karen Pence, the wife of the Vice President, is teaching at a school that discriminates against gay and trans people. And some of you self-hating and opportunistic LGBTQ people (you know exactly who you are) are still out there defending this presidency. https://t.co/JEdnaekI7H

-- Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) January 16, 2019

I wonder if Gillette will put out a "short film" telling gays to get over themselves and stop being busybodies and bullies demanding that everyone adopt their views of sexuality as their own?

Yeah, I doubt it too.

Robert Francis O'Rourke (AKA "Beto" Despite Having No Hispanic Connections Whatsoever): Maybe We Need to Ditch the Constitution

—Ace of Spades

If there's no Constitution, there is no America. It's the document by which we agreed (and continue to agree, if reluctantly) to belong to a nation called the United States.

If we're ditching the Constitution, we're ditching America. Which is actually fine by me -- but if you attempt to ditch the Constitution and keep actual Americans enslaved under a no-longer-American government, expect violence.

Because that's straight-up tyranny.

From a Washington Post interview:

Throughout the two-hour interview -- which was often interrupted by bystanders urging him to run for president -- O'Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope that the United States will soon dramatically change its approach to a whole host of issues and a dismal suspicion that the country is now incapable of implementing sweeping change.

When asked which it is, O'Rourke paused.

"I'm hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don't want to give you a -- actually, just selfishly, I don't want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work?" O'Rourke said. "Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?"

It doesn't work for many on the left. So let's compromise and split the country into states that still cherish the Constitution and those who want to be free to date other political systems.

CNN Analyst Tells David Webb That He Benefits from White Privilege

—Ace of Spades

This is a banana.

CNN analyst Areva Martin incorrectly assumed Fox News contributor and Sirius XM radio host David Webb is white and suggested he has benefited from "white privilege" during a debate on his radio show.

Martin and Webb were debating what qualifies people for certain jobs, and Webb said expertise and experience were more important than race, in his view, Mediate reports.

"Shouldn't their requirement, their primary requirement, regardless of ethnicity, regardless of network, be that they are capable of covering politics?" Webb said. "For instance, if you're going to cover political campaigns, sports may not be the most qualified background. And that brings to the point of if people want to get into these fields regardless of color, I've chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I'm qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue. I considered my qualifications the issue."

"Well David, you know that's a whole 'nother long conversation about white privilege and things that you have the privilege of doing that people of color don't have the privilege of," Martin responded.

"How do I have the privilege of white privilege?" Webb asked.

"David, by virtue of being a white male, you have white privilege, which is a whole long conversation I don't have time to get into," Martin answered.

"Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should have been better prepped, I'm black," Webb said.

Jesus God Almighty, every single idiot on CNN is an incompetent hired only for either tokenism or weird ideology.

Darren Beattie: What Lessons Can We Learn from the Failure of Neoconservatism?
He discusses Dave Reaboi's bugaboo that neconservatives are wrong to claim there are "universal values" that every conquered people will gladly accept the moment the American military topples a tyrant. He notes that it's currently very unclear which "Universal Values" that America is even supposed to be bringing to the benighted peoples of the world:
The past several decades have seen the cultural ascendance of a militant form of doctrinaire progressivism as a dominant institutional "value," including within the military bureaucracy itself. The more entrenched this becomes, the more the heir to the neoconservative vision of projecting American values abroad will begin to look like an imperialistic project to make the world safe for gender neutral bathrooms. Already one sees this transformation in the kind of hawkish rhetoric that urges us to teach Putin a lesson for not sufficiently embracing gay rights.
If America itself doesn't itself embrace a common set of "Universal Values" Neoconservatism is supposed to be spreading to the world, what values are we spreading?

Ironically, or perhaps inevitably, the renewed interest in the low-carb/keto diet was ignited by New York Times article noting that her weight management plan, as demonstrated on The Biggest Loser, is a massive failure, because almost every contestant (90%!) from the Biggest Loser has gained all the weight back (and some have gained even more). As a former contestant of the show says, "That's why you never see a Biggest Loser reunion show-- they don't want to show how fat we all are again."
