The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

By almost every measure of quality of life, the world has become a better place in the last 100 years, but the neo-Puritans and the Luddites and the watermelons and the climate hysterics would have us believe that we are falling into some abyss of environmental catastrophe. But it simply isn't so, as the graph below shows. In spite of the industrialization of the world and the expansion of human living along the coasts and other active parts of the world, it is far safer!

How can this be? We have been yelled at and hectored and lectured that we are destroying the world and that the climate is rushing breakneck to a place that will kill us all!

Here's a nice correlation for you...the amount of CO2 in the air is proportional to the decrease in climate-caused mortality, therefore CO2 is protective.

Prove me wrong!

Wyld Manchester Moor.jpg


Manchester From Kersal Moor
William Wyld

For this one, I decided to do a general search through an online art gallery for something I hadn’t seen before and this one caught my eye. It’s a lovely piece that combines genres, colors, and forms to create a nice image full of contrasts.

This is mainly a pastoral work with a splash of the modern cityscape through the center. The foreground and middle ground are filled with a lush green landscape. The immediate foreground is the rugged rise with trees and rocks. A few goats rest on the left, and a couple with a doggeh sit among the trees to the far left. It is peaceful and quiet. We are far away from the black, busy, crowded city. Wyld shows us that Manchester was already becoming a center of the Industrial Revolution by this time. The dank gray forms of the city are starkly angular, whereas the foreground is a gentle curvilinear, wavy with forms going off in many different directions.

The middle ground is low and flat. It provides a nice visual rest after the detail of the hills and the city and a nice barrier separating the two. The Irwell River winds through this area and guides the eye around the piece and blends in well with the landscape. Behind the city the land rises again in a nice echo of the foreground and the color melts into the sky.

This is a Realist work with Romantic influences. The romantic, idyllic pastoral is set against the realist, oppressive city, but the countryside wins out in the end. It dominates our view and the work itself. The major colors of green, white and yellow work together to overpower the dank gray. They almost succeed too, but the gray streaks across the work’s center and cannot be ignored.
Finally, Wyld does a couple of interesting things with copse of trees on the left. First, they are the only thing that intersect all three regions of the painting. The three areas are very specifically defined and could create a disjointed, patchy work, but the trees unite the regions, tying them, and the painting, together. The second thing is harder to describe, so I hope you’re able to follow me…

The shape of the canopy of the trees is mirrored in the smoke from the factories on the right. Even the tree trunks are repeated in the smokestacks. However, because the color of the smoke is more faded than the green leaves, Wyld made the area covered by the smoke larger. Both shapes come to a point to the left of center, directly under the sun. To me, they look like a set of curtains pulling back to reveal the sun. They also frame it. It’s a nice effect.

This work was created around the time Fredrick Engels was writing in Manchester, but I do not think this work has the same message at all. There is definitely a compare/contrast going on between the city and countryside but I’m not reading a vicious attack on Capitalism or a tirade on class warfare and social injustice. It’s seems to be more of a generalized country-life-vs.-city-life theme. It’s a very peaceful scene.

The Morning Report - 07/18/19

—J.J. Sefton

brofoloves.jpg

Good morning, kids. Dragging this Thursday morning after a nice dinner across the river with fellow cob CBD, so blame him if I'm not my usual perky acid-tongued self. Anyway the big story is the continued self-immolation of the Democrat Party courtesy of the "The Aristocrats!," "The Four Marxisteers," call-them-what-you-will, aka "The Squad." Beyond the initial lies about "concentration camps" and torturing children and the President's justified retaliatory strike in defense of ICE and CBP, the Wrecking Crew have ignored the time-honored first rule of holes maxim and as of this writing have broken through the Continental Crust and should be halfway through the lithosphere by lunchtime.

As repulsive as it is for us to have to endure the torrent of raw sewage emitted from these dangerously deranged crackpots, they have exposed the Democrat Party and the Leftist-Globalist enterprise to destroy America as founded for all to see. Intentionally or not, it's all because of Trump. No, not because he's a big, fat, orange meanie and a "racist," but because he instinctively defends this country and its people to the hilt as he would if his own family were personally attacked.

I think what has happened, and no doubt will continue to happen for the next 15 months has the potential to not only wipe out the Dems in the 2020 election, but could have the effect of splintering it altogether. And Nancy Palsi, Cuck Schemer and every one of the 10,000 presidential candidates and the two Democrat dogcatchers from Yuma not running have no one else to blame but themselves for this. That said, much of what we've seen has been festering at least as far back as perhaps the 2004 election and certainly by 2008 with Obama, that is the most strident anti-Americans attaining important positions within the party and movement. Of course, 50-plus years of brainwashing courtesy of the American educational system might had a hand in all of this as well. So when Trump "stole" the election from Hillary by "colluding with Russia," they went over the edge with the rhetoric. But it's far too late to put the toothpaste back in the tube. Nancy Palsi could have stood her ground and looked like the adult in the room by publicly telling the Four Fungi to cool it. But Psych-Out Chakrabarti doesn't play second banana (or is it an apple, CNN?) to some broken down crooked machine pol. Not when there's a glorious socialist revolution to be won! But I digress...

Well, it's more likely that Nancy couldn't rebuke them without pissing off the base since to do so would give the appearance that she is defending OrangeManBad. And how could she do that since she and her underlings openly declared they were going to impeach Trump the moment they won the midterms. Speaking of which, the non-"Let's Stay Together" Al Green's motion to start impeachment proceedings was tabled indefinitely. Funny, but I thought the Congressional Black Caucasians were rushing to Pelosi's defense only a day or so ago and yet this creepy looking stooge who looks like a very tanned version of Engelbert Humperdink's grandfather did the one thing she desperately hoped to avoid. Total circular firing squad.

Despite idiots like John Son-of-a-Postage-Stamp Kasich's bullshit about civility or whatever, even those on the Left are admitting that Trump won this whole thing hands down, and they're absolutely panicked about it. There was, in fact, polling done on Sunday or Monday and Trump's approval among Republican voters actually increased and significantly even after his "racist" America, love it or leave it comments. His rally in North Carolina further underscored it with the crowd shifting from "lock her up" to "send her back." After reciting a litany of horrid quotes about Bro-Fo and company, Trump actually brought up the Somali slag's dubious sham marriage to her brother and the fraud she perpetrated to come to the land she utterly loathes. And the wailing and rending of garments on the Lido Deck of Kristol's ship could be heard far out to sea.

Yet with everything crashing and burning all around them, what did Bro-Fo and Rancida Tliban do? Co-sponsor a bill promoting the anti-Semitic BDS movement. Perfect.

We'll circle back to politics with more related links but first...

AMNESTY, IMMIGRATION, MIGRANT INVASION BORDER WALL, BORDER SECURITY

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

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"With or without a report from an economist, anyone with a modicum of common sense should be able to recognize that banning the sale of America's most popular quit-smoking tool will inevitably lead to more cigarettes being smoked," Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association, a nonprofit advocacy group.


Quote II

“Busch has the best fans out there who are always up for a little challenge, so we know they’ll be out in the forest finding our hidden ‘Schop.’ The chance to win beer for life also doesn’t hurt.” Daniel Blake


Quote III

"I mean, I'm not in support of middle class families paying more taxes for it. Part of it is going to be about Wall Street paying more. It's going to be about what we tax in terms of financial services. That's part of it. The other part is to ups understand this is about an investment that will reap a great return on the investment. We can't only look at this issue in terms of cost without thinking about benefit. The benefit to the American public will be that people will have access to health care that right now they cannot afford. And we are all paying a price for that." Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA)


Quote IV

As a Coalition of the Fringes, the only thing that holds together the Democrats is demonizing core Americans. Without ever increasingly whipping up hatred of whites, what is there to keep the Democrats’ collection of miscellaneous identity groups from turning on each other? Steve Sailer


Quote V

“They are entitled to their opinion. They are Americans. But I’m entitled to my opinion, and I just think they are left-wing cranks and they are the reason that there are directions on a shampoo bottle,” Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA)


Quote VI

"This disclosure will serve as a wake-up call to every community in the country. America should brace itself for the harsh reality of the scope of the opioid epidemic. Transparency will lead to accountability." Peter J. Mougey

House Votes to Kill Fakey-Fake Impeachment Inquiry

—Ace of Spades

Should be a lot of anger among the emotionally incontinent.

The resolution went down on a vote of 332 to 95, with all Republicans voting for it and more Democrats in favor of killing the impeachment resolution than were for backing it. There was a single abstention.

After hours of uncertainty about the mechanics of how the measure would be dealt with, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, a Trump loyalist, moved to table the resolution – not long after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would 'deal' with it, without specifying precisely how.

This doesn't mean that the Democrats got out of this with no penalty -- now they have a lot of "moderate" Democrats who have voted to keep Literal Hitler, Worse Than the First Hitler, in Das Weiss Haus, and that's going to Not Be Okay with the progressives, super-partisans, NeverTrumpers and assorted other lunatics who sit on Twitter all day and then cry in the shower like Glenn Close in the Big Chill.

Also, Trump can now say, correctly, that even his enemies in the Democrat-controlled Congress have decided that there's no case for impeachment.

From Tami:

@ChadPergram

Hse votes to set aside articles of impeachment for President Trump prepared by Rep Al Green (D-TX).

The vote was 332-95

137 Democrats voted yea

95 Democrats voted no

All Republicans voted nay

Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) voted yes.

Reps. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) voted present

22 Members of Real American Organization MS-13 Arrested for Hacking Seven Victims to Death With Just As American as You Or Me Machetes

—Ace of Spades

So American. I can't believe the racism here in arresting them for just living life to the full in America, which is the world's Las Vegas -- whatever happens in America, stays in America.

Some people literally had their hearts hacked out with machetes.

The indictment describes one grisly murder in which a rival gang member was kidnapped and taken to Angeles National Forest. He was allegedly attacked and killed by six MS-13 members wielding machetes.

“The victim was dismembered, and his body parts were thrown into a canyon after one of the defendants allegedly cut the heart out of the victim’s body,” prosecutors said.

Most of the killers are -- get this -- illegal immigrants. Also known as The Most American of All Americans.

Good catch from AmGreatness's KBO:

The Los Angeles Times takes care to point out in the middle of an article discussing 24 gruesome, violent machete murders committed by illegal aliens that "MS-13 has also become a bogeyman used by President Trump to justify stronger immigration enforcement by linking the issue to crime."

Bogeyman.

Planned Parenthood Head Terminated After Just Eight Months in the Abortion Lobby Womb; Found to Not Be Pro-Abortion Enough, Refused to Admit That Men Need Abortions Too

"I'd guess that President Trump has never read any Saul Alinsky. Not that he has to. I think he knows pretty much every one of Alinsky's rules by sheer instinct. Particularly the 13th, rule, which is: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." This is what he did with the commie swine who they're calling 'The Squad.'

Hyper-woke squad members are currently spatting with old-guard Democrats for not being woke enough. Among other things, one of them called Nancy Pelosi a racist, and she's just shocked, shocked that the monster she nurtured is now biting her on the butt. And some conservatives are mad at Trump for inserting himself into this squabble because hey, why interrupt your enemy while they're making a mistake?

But whether he consciously intended it or not, Trump has now made 'the Squad' the face of the Democratic Party. He has held them up for all of America to see for what they are: deranged, America-hating, anti-Semitic, terrorist-coddling, far-left lunatics. They're polling close to the single digits now, almost as low as CNN's ratings.

And furthermore, he has glued them firmly onto the backs of the entire Democratic Party. So I think it's going to work out good for us in the long run. This association between will be a suppurating open wound from now until 2020, the squabbling will continue, and the Democrats' constant howling that Trump is a racist is bouncing off him like raindrops hitting a tin roof. They've used that word so many times that literally nobody cares anymore. Except the progressive nutroots, who, along with the French Davidians, will believe anything if it can be construed to mean OrangeManBad."

The Morning Report - 07/17/19

—J.J. Sefton

sabotlosi.jpg

Good morning, kids. I've got an image stuck in my head this morning and I can't seem to shake it. It's from the final scene of Alfred Hitchcock's wartime thriller Saboteur where the heavy, played by Norman Lloyd is dangling from Lady Liberty's torch as the hero, Bob Cummings, strains to hold on to his sleeve, desperately trying to save the guy he's chased for the entire picture who framed him for treasonous sabotage. And then Hitch cuts to a close up of Lloyd's shoulder where, one by one, the stitches on his jacket sleeve start popping loose...

Everything about that entire scene combines into a metaphor that perfectly encapsulates where the Democrat Party and even more frighteningly the nation as a whole is at this moment in time. We're coming apart at the seams. The better angels of our nature are desperate to cling to something, anything in our political enemies that will pull them back from the brink, knowing full well that if the situation were reversed, they'd be doing what Martin Landau did to Cary Grant as he dangled from a precipice atop Mount Rushmore in North By Northwest: grind his heel into Grant's hand.

Beyond any shadow of a doubt (no pun), the Democrat Party has gone from being merely a political enemy and morphed into a mortal enemy not just of the GOP and conservatives, but of the nation as founded, its distinct culture, traditions, heritage and its people. The spectacle over the last few days that we have had to endure, which is solely and wholly at the feet of the Democrat-Media Complex, will go down as a low point in our history, naturally depending upon who gets to write that history. For me, almost as repulsive as having to listen to the effluent coming from the flapping castanets of the Febrile Four Females of "The Squad" aka "The Aristocrats!" are the fools, stooges and confederates of the anti-Trump persuasion who cast equal if not more blame on this President and by extension the majority of the American people.

President Trump has rightly called them out in the plainest of terms for who and what they are and what they have said, vis a vis the bald-faced lies about or immigration and detention policies and more generally the nation and its citizens. Nowhere in any of his comments were any individuals named, let alone their race or country of origin. Only one was born in one of the worst foreign shit-holes on the planet and the other three come from domestic shit-holes of the Democrat-controlled variety, but I digress. The attitude and meaning of the phrase "America, love it or leave it" is unambiguous, and the only crime in Trump saying what amounts to that sentiment is that for far too long it has gone unsaid.

What all of these idiots are missing, mostly because the propagandists aren't covering it, is the rhetoric that Trump was attacking has and continues to incite violence. When you label detention facilities as "concentration camps," compare Trump to Hitler, Pence to Himmler, the Border Patrol and ICE agents as the SS rounding up innocent children and torturing them, is it any wonder that some guy attempted to firebomb a detention facility in Tacoma? (NB: CNN gave the now room-temperature terrorist in question a glowing profile). Not only do The Aristocrats!" refuse to condemn this action but an equally vile backbencher colleague, Karen Bass, is preemptively blaming any future violence on the President. Meh, the Democrats are not going to condemn Antifa terrorists because like their antebellum antecedents, Antifa is as part of the Democrats now as the KKK was back then and for over 100 years, the big "switching of the parties post 1964" lie notwithstanding. Oh yes indeed. I do not have solid proof definitively tying Antifa to any Democrat, but to this day Dick Durbin and his staff have yet to be called to account for their evidently close and extensive relationship with James Hodgkinson, the man who nearly massacred GOP House members at a softball practice two years ago. Cui Bono is not Cher's dead ex.

As the late, great Barry Goldwater famously said,

Moderation in the protection of liberty is no virtue; extremism in the defense of freedom is no vice. Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth.

Before his words get twisted, as they always do, Goldwater was not promoting violence. He was merely exhorting those in his political party who detested him, to stand up to the oncoming tidal wave of anti-Americanism and Democrat-Socialism that 50+ years later is about to swamp us. Trump is the only president or real political leader on the right in my lifetime to have taken Goldwater's words to heart. Make no mistake, I am not promoting violence either. But it is the Democrat-Left-Media Complex that is going to - and in fact is - forcing the issue. Of winds and whirlwinds, yo.

Now to the links we go...

AMNESTY, IMMIGRATION, MIGRANT INVASION BORDER WALL, BORDER SECURITY

The Son-In-Law also rises, mostly by rolling out the President's immigration fixes, Ken Cuccinelli warns of an ICE dam, Dems tell American citizens to FOAD, Nancy Palsi's "spark of humanity" boys engage in the mostly peaceful cutting out the heart of a victim with machetes, and when the CBP is arresting illegal aliens up in Maine, you know you have a crisis.

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

I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts.

I agree with the Squad on this, and not in an ironic way, either: I'm tired of the establishment of either party (actually, two wings of the same overparty) deciding which debates will be permitted to be had publicly and which will be hushed up and worked out behind closed doors.

So, vote. Let's get it all on the record.

Mark Sanford, Who Abandoned His State to Dally with His Mistress in Argentina, Ponders Running Against Trump in the GOP Primary

—Ace of Spades

The Valparaiso Vagabundo, the Buenos Aires Aranador, the Pimp of the Pampas, is a real attractive candidate for the Morality Police who pretend to be Republicans, such as Noted Marriage Advocate Charlie Sykes.

Former South Carolina congressman Mark Sanford is considering launching a bid for president just months after leaving office following President Trump urging Republican voters in the Palmetto State to reject his renomination.

Speaking to The Post and Courier newspaper, Sanford said that he is taking the next month to decide whether or not he’ll mount a challenge to Trump's candidacy in the 2020 presidential election, where he would run on a platform focusing on curtailing the national debt and government spending.


"Sometimes in life you've got to say what you've got to say, whether there's an audience or not for that message," Sanford said.

Sanford is set to make his announcement from an undisclosed location, possibly on an Appalachian trail.

Update: Dang, Valparaiso is in Chile, not Argentina. Nuts! I spent five minutes looking for a v-word to match it with!

Thiel then slammed Google for its decision to work with the Chinese military while refusing to renew a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense.

"Number three: Is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military," Thiel said.

Poll: The Public is Defining the Democrat Party by Alexandria Donkey-Chompers, and the Public Loathes Alexandria Donkey-Chompers

—Ace of Spades

Panic time?

Top Democrats are circulating a poll showing that one of the House's most progressive members — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — has become a definitional face for the party with a crucial group of swing voters.

...

"If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk," said a top Democrat who is involved in 2020 congressional races. "[S]he's getting all the news and defining everyone else's races."

The poll -- taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi's latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as "The Squad" -- included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.

These are the "white, non-college voters" who embraced Donald Trump in 2016 but are needed by Democrats in swing House districts.

The group that took the poll shared the results with Axios on the condition that it not be named, because the group has to work with all parts of the party.

The findings:

Ocasio-Cortez was recognized by 74% of voters in the poll; 22% had a favorable view.


Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota -- another member of The Squad -- was recognized by 53% of the voters; 9% (not a typo) had a favorable view.

Socialism was viewed favorably by 18% of the voters and unfavorably by 69%.

Capitalism was 56% favorable; 32% unfavorable.

"Socialism is toxic to these voters," said the top Democrat.

And this focus group -- this is a different study -- doesn't seem inclined to support the Democrats' "Give illegal immigrants all that they want, and more!" agenda:

007 Will Now Be a Black Woman or Something

—Ace of Spades

I don't think it's real. I mean, part of it is real. But it's not really real.

Period.

But you know how the UK is now -- it's like 20% worse than America. So every male hero has to be gender-swapped to female, and the British media will attack you until you give in.

The "007 is now a black woman" story goes like this: Supposedly, James Bond begins the next terrible movie retired, so his code-number is now released to be used by others. (They're not going to retire that number and hang his Tuxedo from the rafters? Guy's saved the world like 22 times.)

The "007" who is played by the Captain Marvel actress (another Charisma Exclusion Zone, I'm told) is not James Bond, but just another agent who's been elevated to 00 status, and assigned his old number because it was available.

I agree with the anti-SJW pop culture channel Nerdrotic about this -- Barbara Broccoli and her husband Michael G. Wilson got so sick of the "When is James Bond going to be a woman? Black? Gay?" question that they decided to shut the SJWs up and make a black woman "007" (but not James Bond) briefly in one movie, so that The Mary Sue would get off their backs. I also agree that if Broccoli wants to really end all questions, they'll also bait that this new 007 is a lesbian, so they can Check That Box on the "gay" 007 thing too.

Based on what usually happens in movies, I imagine that this 007 will be killed during the movie, and the real 007 will have to come out of retirement to investigate, or will cede the number back to James Bond near the end of the movie when she realizes he really is a legend and that number should only be his.

I hate the James Bond movies now so this isn't fanboy stuff; I'd kind of love it if they did just set fire to the IP, like they've set fire to Star Wars, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, etc.

Burn it all up.

But I think this is a fake-out.

You know what's even more of a danger to the 007 franchise?

Their new devotion to continuity.

They're pushing continuity in every movie now. The first one showed Bond getting his 00 license to kill. The third one showed him getting older and going missing and retiring, then coming back. The fourth one also heavily implied he was retiring and getting married. This newest one will feature him retired, and probably with a dead wife on his hands.

What are they going to do when Craig retires? Another reboot?

The old series of 007 movies ignored continuity to the point where no one even wondered about it any more, making it very easy to swap out actors or remake old plotlines or violate prior history in the series.

But these Craig movies are emphasizing that this is all supposed to be part of the same non-epic epic. There's supposed to be a real throughline. We're following Bond through most of his career.

So what happens when Craig retires?

It will be weird when another actor comes in and says "Ignore the past five movies' continuity."

And yeah, in the old series, we always had to ignore prior continuity, but we'd gotten used to the idea that no James Bond movie was really a "sequel" to any other -- each movie was basically a stand-alone with little to no connection to any other movie.

Now they've made it weird.

Likely Plot: Just so you know, there was a leak/rumor that the newest film would be called "Shatterhand."

This was denied.

But so everyone knows: Shatterhand was the pseudonym Blofeld was using in You Only Live Twice, AFTER he'd murdered Tracy.

So if this movie indeed has something to do with "Shatterhand," the plot would go like this: Bond is retired in the beginning of the film, after having married the bland Lea Seydoux from Specter, and Blofeld or his agents kill his wife.

Then he un-retires and seeks vengeance.

So this "new 007" would probably just be investigating a front that turns out to be Blofeld in the beginning of the movie, to offer some espionage-type stuff in between the "Bond hanging out in Jamaica with his wife" stuff to set the stage.

David French: Backwards Beliefs and Islamic Propaganda Didn't Radicalize Ilhan Omar.
You Did.

—Ace of Spades





A friend suggested that French meant that American-born Islamists radicalized her.

Well, maybe he meant that, but he avoided using that word, didn't he? Because he was Virtue Signaling for Liberal Approval and didn't want to taint it by spreading a Racist Meme like "Islamists spread the doctrine of Islamism."

Does David French think that Ilhan Omar was spotless of anti-semitism until Mean Americans taught her to hate Jews?

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who, like Omar, grew up in Somalia, says that's unlikely. She says that she was anti-semitic herself due to the dominant backwards culture of Somalia and had to deprogram herself.

But I guess we need more Real Americans like Ilhan Omar, and I guess we should take David French's word for it that the American immigration system screens out all Islamists.

That's the single stupidest thing he's ever written, by the way.

Here is some of Ayaan Hirsi Ali's recent article from the Wall Street Journal.

I once opened a speech by confessing to a crowd of Jews that I used to hate them. It was 2006 and I was a young native of Somalia who'd been elected to the Dutch Parliament. The American Jewish Committee was giving me its Moral Courage Award. I felt honored and humbled, but a little dishonest if I didn't own up to my anti-Semitic past. So I told them how I'd learned to blame the Jews for everything.

Fast-forward to 2019. A freshman congresswoman from Minnesota has been infuriating the Jewish community and discomfiting the Democratic leadership with her expressions of anti-Semitism. Like me, Ilhan Omar was born in Somalia and exposed at an early age to Muslim anti-Semitism.

Some of the members of my 2006 AJC audience have asked me to explain and respond to Ms. Omar’s comments, including her equivocal apologies. Their main question is whether it is possible for Ms. Omar to unlearn her evident hatred of Jews--and if so, how to help.

In my experience it is difficult, perhaps impossible, to unlearn hate without coming to terms with how you learned to hate. Most Americans are familiar with the classic Western flavors of anti-Semitism: the Christian, European, white-supremacist and Communist types. But little attention has been paid to the special case of Muslim anti-Semitism. That is a pity because today it is anti-Semitism's most zealous, most potent and most underestimated form.

I never heard the term “anti-Semitism” until I moved to the Netherlands in my 20s. But I had firsthand familiarity with its Muslim variety. As a child in Somalia, I was a passive consumer of anti-Semitism. Things would break, conflicts would arise, shortages would occur--and adults would blame it all on the Jews.

When I was a little girl, my mom often lost her temper with my brother, with the grocer or with a neighbor. She would scream or curse under her breath "Yahud!" followed by a description of the hostility, ignominy or despicable behavior of the subject of her wrath. It wasn’t just my mother; grown-ups around me exclaimed "Yahud!" the way Americans use the F-word. I was made to understand that Jews--Yahud--were all bad.

...

We were taught that the Jews betrayed our prophet Muhammad. Through Quranic verses (such as 7:166, 2:65 and 5:60), we learned that Allah had eternally condemned them, that they were not human but descendants of pigs and monkeys, that we should aspire to kill them wherever we found them...

We were taught that the Jews occupied the Holy Land of Palestine. We were shown pictures of mutilated bodies, dead children, wailing widows and weeping orphans....

The theological and the political stories were woven together, as in the Hamas charter: "The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: 'The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The Stones and trees will say, "O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill me."' . . . There is no solution for the Palestine question except through Jihad."

Is the delicate cuck David French quite certain that immigrants such as Ilhan Omar come to the US devoid of any antisemitism or Islamism, only to be taught it by Americans?

Or is this an entirely sham claim he's knowingly lying about just to win a Twitter Argument in which he was exposed as a fool?

The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

—CBD

punk-monkey.jpg

Biden's my man, because who better to tamp down the enthusiasm of the maniacal farther-left of the Democrat party? He's a tedious old fool who is a boring speaker, has no signature cause or accomplishments, and panders to the last people in the news without being able to suggest concrete entitlement payouts because he is terrified of making a tactical error and alienating some other group. His only saving grace is that he comes off as the doddering uncle who brings candy for the kids (and then paws them and smells their hair: but that's a different issue).

Is he really going to energize the Antifa fascists to go vote and stuff ballot boxes and intimidate Republican voters? Are the insane Gaia-loving enviro-wackadoodles going to rush to the polls to vote early and often to support a 77-year-old career politician who looks like everything they hate?

However, a credible argument could be made for any one of the 93 people currently campaigning for the Democrat nomination...Warren is a shrewish, nagging middle school principal; Sanders is a crazy dude who wandered in off the street and smells faintly of vomit and patchouli; Harris is a nasty and hectoring backstabber who rifles through the overcoats in the den looking for wallets; and Buttigieg looks like a cartoon character who wandered in from another dimension. And the rest of them? Even weirder and dumber.

Any one of these people should be beatable by President Trump, in spite of their many advantages; first and foremost of which is the Media-Industrial-Complex being completely and totally in the bag for the Democrats. But that may not be such a bad thing; disseminating without a critical eye every idiotic comment from every corner of the leftist cesspit certainly won't endear the Democrat party to the American people.

Commenter Monty James made an important point this morning...

It's not 11d chess. It's just been so long since we've seen a Republican get in and mix it up with Democrats that we confuse it for some master plan; most of them don't like to get their bow ties mussed.
As much as I am sometimes frustrated by the President's insistence on getting the last word, simply not caving works wonders!

The Morning Report - 07/16/19

—J.J. Sefton

suicsqua.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and of course the lead story is yesterday's utter fiasco of "The Squad" - that the four frosh Congressmen of the so-called "Justice Democrats" - who called a press conference ostensibly to slam President Trump for his "racist" Tweets against them, but instead unleashed a torrent of anti-American, anti-Semitic racialist bilge that, while disgusting to have to witness, nevertheless had the effect of making them and what they spewed the face of the Democrat Party.

I would surely have loved to have been a fly on the wall of Nancy Palsi's office as she drained her liquor cabinet and then started guzzling her own cologne or the can of Lysol under the bathroom sink, pausing only to shriek vulgarities in between swigs that would make George S. Patton blush and even Hillary say "jeez lady, get a grip!" Can you blame her? The Democrat Party, with the vital help of an allied agitprop media, has for decades successfully cloaked itself with an illusion of love-of-country as it did everything possible to destroy it while blaming Republicans and conservatives for the country's ills. Even during the Obama years, the illusion was maintained, gossamer thin as it was by that time, mostly because there was no one in the GOP to challenge it. Now, what took well over 100 years to establish is gone in the blink of an eye, and with it perhaps the last coffin nail in any chance the Democrats might have had of beating President Trump in 2020 has been nailed shut.

Once again, Donald Trump's mere presence in the White House and more crucially his willingness to defend himself, his policies and by extension defend all real Americans and this nation loudly, proudly with Queens accent and all, is what got us here. And thank G-d for it! It needs to be emphasized here that the President did not instigate this. He was reacting to the lies being perpetrated by Chiquita Khruschev and her cohorts about "concentration camps" and other phony "crimes against humanity" allegedly perpetrated by ICE, DHS, CBP et al on the illegal alien invaders who are the real criminals here for trying to jump our borders and abuse our amnesty laws. At the same time, these four have been able to turn almost their entire party into a veritable Greek chorus of anti-American, anti-Semitic, racialism and historical revisionism that heretofore went unanswered and allowed to fester.

President Trump used their words against them, and retorted when he dared utter the phrase (albeit with slightly different language) that every real American knows so well: America - Love It Or Leave It. Boom. He was actually much more charitable in his attack stating that the four miscreants should instead of trashing America go back to the places they escaped from, work to improve them, and then return and report back. Naturally they and the media twisted the President's words just like every other day ending in "Y" but his point was made. Well, that of course could not stand and so, like moths to a flame, the four idiots called a press conference.

The question is, is Trump playing 11-dimensional chess or is it just his willingness to confront bullshit, not back down and in doing so force the Left to invariably hoist itself on its own petard? I think it's a bit of both. Whatever he did, he forced Nancy Palsi who was desperate to try and keep a lid on these freaks to publicly support them and call for a censure of Trump. That is, he forced the Democrat House Majority Leader to publicly rise to the defense of anti-Americanism, anti-Semitism, racialism and global socialism before the entirety of the American people. As to the RINOs, "Con" artist frauds and anyone in the Cuck-servative media who is saying that this was a titanic and fatal error on Trump's part, that is so far removed from reality that you're not wrong; you're lying.

Check and mate, Mr. President.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

"Number one, how many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI?

Number two, does Google's senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?

Number three, is it because they consider themselves to be so thoroughly infiltrated that they have engaged in the seemingly treasonous decision to work with the Chinese military and not with the US military... because they are making the sort of bad, short-term rationalistic [decision] that if the technology doesn't go out the front door, it gets stolen out the backdoor anyway?" Peter Thiel


Quote II

We all know [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border, Border Patrol agents concentration camp guards. They accuse people support Israel doing it for the Benjamins. They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America.

Report: Ousted UK Ambassador Kim Darroch Leaked "Highly Classified," "Very Sensitive" US National Security Information to Media

—Ace of Spades

I'd like to pass along an invitation to the Saudi embassy in Turkey.

Leaked U.K. diplomatic cables critical of President Trump have led Britain's ambassador, Sir Kim Darroch, to announce his departure from Washington earlier than expected. But the story is not yet concluded.

According to one current and one former U.S. government official speaking on the condition of anonymity, Darroch repeatedly leaked classified U.S. intelligence information, including highly classified material, to a journalist for a U.S.-based media outlet. The sources are consolidated by the reaction my related inquiries have received from other government officials.

These leaks are unrelated to the diplomatic cables which sparked Trump's anger and Darroch's departure.

Still, one source says that the U.S. government was so alarmed by Darroch's leaks that it launched an official investigation to find the source of the information.

Democrat Presidential Candidate Jay Inslee Says He'll Ask Megan Rapinoe to Serve as Secretary of State, if Elected

—Ace of Spades

This is a roundabout way of saying he won't be elected.

But you gotta get your #WokeScore high enough to make the next debate!

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) said Saturday that if he is elected president, he will ask soccer player Megan Rapinoe to be his secretary of state.


He said at the progressive Netroots Nation conference that one of his first acts as president would be to get a secretary of State who embraces world unity and "love rather than hate" as he rebuked President Trump's foreign policy.

"My first act will be to ask Megan Rapinoe to be my secretary of State," he said. "I haven't asked her yet, so this could be a surprise to her."

If she says no, ask one of the 15-year-old boys who beat her team.

Oh, and here's an update to the Squad press conference: Ilhan Omar refuses to say she's not pro-Al Qaeda, as if it's some kind of loaded question.



She also said that "Muslims will no longer" denounce terrorism, so as not to give "dignification" to the question of whether they support terrorism or not.

Cool clock, bro.

"The Squad" on National TV

already in progress.

Good to see Ilhan Omar totally learned the English language. I mean, she's been here since she was six, and man, she sounds just like a native!

Clearly she's a better American than I am, and clearly there's no problem with having so many non-English speakers that they never feel the least inconvenienced by not speaking English.

I think Donkey-Chompers just said, "This country belongs to the world." I heard the last part of that, and a commenter provided the first part.

So American!!!

Ilhan Omar refuses to say she's not pro-Al-Qaeda. She further says that "Muslims will no longer allow the dignification" of the claim of Al Qaeda sympathy by denouncing terrorism any further.

Pelosi Pushes Resolution to Support "The Squad"
Update: Mitt Romney Says... Seems to Me These Women Do Have Some Anti-American Tendencies, No?

—Ace of Spades

Allegiance.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday urged House Democrats to support a resolution to condemn President Trump for tweeting that four Democratic congresswomen of color should "go back" to their countries, even though all are U.S. citizens. "The House cannot allow the President’s characterization of immigrants to our country to stand. Our Republican colleagues must join us in condemning the President’s xenophobic tweets," Pelosi wrote in a letter to House Democrats announcing a "forthcoming" resolution from Reps. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), who was born in Poland, Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), and other Democratic members who were born abroad.

"This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress," Pelosi added. "Rather than attack Members of Congress, he should work with us for humane immigration policy that reflects American values."



There's speculation that Trump's tweets will actually work to his benefit, for precisely the reason seen above: They force Pelosi to embrace The Squad, a group of four radical, America-hating socialists who are loathed by the American public.


Omar Ilhan, for example, has a favorability rating of nine percent in the country as a whole.

If it's true that this forces Democrats into a tactical error of defending indefensible ground, people will say Trump's a genius.

I wouldn't go that far. But I'd say this: If a football's team defense does not aggressively go after the opponents' offense -- that is, if it sits back and just reacts -- the offense will work the ball down the field and make scoring look easy.

Trump does understand something that the cuck class does not or will not: That the only way to force errors, and make someone look clumsy and amateurish, is to challenge them. Pressure them.

Teams that are not pressured do not make many errors. Teams that are pressured do make errors.

The Democrat Party is used to operating in a friendly, permissive environment in which they can execute their plans and plays without counter-pressure.

They're not used to pressure.

Trump isn't a genius, I don't think. But he does have the small, tiny advantage of being right on policy, and the little advantage of grasping, intuitively, that you cannot win a game without aggression and pressure.

The cuck class does not believe in pressuring Democrats, except on largely procedural bullshit that no one really cares about. One example: Mitch McConnell permitted the Democrats to delay a vote until their sick members could rejoin Congress and vote Obamacare into law.

But Mitch McConnell didn't sell us out. He got something big in return. Remember what it was?

Of course you don't. Because it wasn't big.

McConnell's big "get" in exchange for shepherding Obamacare into law was getting Democrats to agree to hold a vote to increase the debt ceiling just before the evening news shows. This would be super-embarrassing for the Democrats, he told us, and would lead to Big Political Victories down the line.

I think we can say that history has rendered its verdict, and McConnell's big "get" was a big nothing.

Another reason the cuck class doesn't push on immigration -- an issue which has the ability to move votes in our favor -- is that they are in substantial agreement with the left on open borders.

Remember, Boehner and McConnell and the other open borders corporatists weren't against the DACA policy. They limited their objection to Obama's use of an executive order to achieve it. They wanted Congress to pass DACA.

A procedural complaint, again, while supporting the main point of the liberal amnesty agenda.

Update: Mitt Romney decides that You Never Go Full David French.



Will NeverTrump now seek to excommunicate him, as they've done with poor Maro Rubo?

Meanwhile, here's a little flashback from May 18, 2019: a pilot program of rapid DNA typing concluded that 30% of "asylum seekers" were travelling with a child they were unrelated to, but claiming as their own.

Where did these children, used to make a dangerous, illegal border crossing in which rape is a very real possibility, come from?

Does anyone care?

Earning citizenship, one trafficked child at a time.

From May 18, 2019:

In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren't theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system's temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.

"There’s been some concern about, 'Are they stepfathers or adopted fathers?'" the official said. "Those were not the case. In these cases, they are misrepresented as family members."

In some incidents where Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the adults they would have to take a cheek swab to verify a relationship with a minor, several admitted the child was not related and did not take the DNA test, which was designed by a U.S. company.

More: Below, Ana Navarro says we should send Melania Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio back to their "home countries."

Note that Rubio was born in America and Ted Cruz is the son of an American, born in Canada due to the parent working there at the time.

Is this suddenly Not forbidden when the left wants to snark?

Either it's forbidden and taboo or it's not.

Apparently it's not. So shut the fuck up.

...and an antifa-affiliated terrorist attacked an ICE facility with molotov cocktails and a rifle...

The 69-year-old armed man killed by Washington state police as he attacked a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center Saturday sent a manifesto to friends the day before the assault in which he wrote "I am Antifa," and was being lionized by members of the leftwing group as a "martyr."

The group Seattle Antifascist Action described assailant Willem Van Spronsen a "good friend and comrade" who "took a stand against the fascist detention center in Tacoma" and "became a martyr who gave his life to the struggle against fascism."

David French: It's Racist to Say that Immigrants Who Are Unhappy Here Should Go Back to Their Native Countries. You Know What's Not Racist? Saying that Natural Born Citizens Are Less Worthy Than Immigrants.

—Ace of Spades

It's racist to say an immigrant is less "American" than a natural born citizen, but it's not racist -- and in fact Enlightened -- to say that a (legal) immigrant is more American than a natural born citizen.



I believe every American should be grateful for American liberty and opportunity. But the average immigrant citizen did more to earn their place than the average natural-born citizen. /2


They generally:

1) Exercise courage and grit to get here;
2) Learn a new language;
3) Stay out of trouble and build a new life;
4) Become productive members of the community;
5) Take a test most Americans would fail; and
6) Swear an oath of allegiance. /3


Here’s what I had to do to enjoy the blessings of American liberty:

1) Survive labor and delivery.

That's it. That’s the whole thing. /4

So who should be the most overwhelmed by gratitude? The person who had to do actual work in the real world to earn citizenship or the person who enjoys the fruits of the sacrifice of millions entirely by accident of birth? /5

My youngest daughter is an immigrant. She’s also fully completely and totally American. I want her to be grateful for the blessings of liberty, but I also want her to know that she can enjoy and exercise -- without guilt! -- that same liberty. And . . . /6

If any person, be they a Twitter troll, or a draft-dodging, lying, adulterous, sex predator of a president tells her anything to the contrary, then they’re far less American than she is. /End

After handing the GOP big legislative victories in 2010 and 2014, it was largely betrayed by the Republicans in Congress, who broke their promises to shrink government and block Obama's initiatives.
When politeness and orderliness are met with contempt and betrayal, do not be surprised if the response is something less polite, and less orderly.
Surprising exactly no one, David French once again teams up with the leftwing Vox's leftwing "reporter" on "The GOP, the right, and white supremacy" to smear his enemies, and Jonah Goldberg recommends the leftwing Vox "reporter's" thread to his Twitter following
Once again, they attempt to get an insult they don't like -- "cuck" -- censored, claiming it is only about black men having sex with white wives. The cuck kink isn't limited to black-on-white cucking -- it's a term oblivious to race, and refers only to weakness and submissiveness -- but they keep saying it is entirely racial, contrary to the dictionary definition and contrary to a cursory perusal of the offerings in this category on Xhamster. Just to falsely tar their opponents as "racist" for daring to criticize them. Same as their liberal friends do, oddly enough!
Or maybe I'm too cynical. Maybe they're not deliberately misrepresenting "cuck" porn as exclusively black and white; perhaps they're just prisoners of their own experience and their own kinks, and that's just their personal favorite type of cuck pornography.
I don't know. What I do know is that cucks come in all colors and shapes. Well, one shape, mostly -- Eggs With Legs. But again, it's not exclusive to that.
The silly little brokebrain bitch David French spends more time damseling for himself on Twitter, asking his beta orbiters to protect him, than he spends on his actual job(s). Shouldn't he at least put up a Patreon with "nude and lewd" pictures of himself on offer if he's going to keep begging his beta orbiters to White Knight for him? Shouldn't his Beta Brigade get some sexy boudoir shots for their services?
Coming soon: The Conservative Case for Anita Sarkesian, Who Showed Us The Way
Ain't No Rest for the Triggered, by Chris Raygun
Actually, given that these fine gentlemen are now making The Conservative Case for Vox, why bother with NR and the much, much anticipated Hayes/Goldberg newsletter -- why not just patronize Vox, the site that they're such great fans of? Cut out the middleman -- the Lucky Pierre -- I say.
How Prince wound up doing the "Batman" corporate synergy album (the first such album, not saying that's a good thing, mind you)
The studio wanted Michael Jackson, and for a time, it was going to be a Michael Jackson/Prince album (Jackson doing ballads for the heroes, Prince doing rougher music for the villains), but it wound up just as Prince
Star Wars: Saved In the Edit
Good short video about how Marcia Lucas saved a disaster called "Star Wars" by re-editing the beginning and the ending.
