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?
How the Grifter Ringleaders at the Weekly Standard Got All of the Other Employees Fired Pursuing a Three Year Vendetta Not Against Trump But Against The GOP and All Trump Voters (AKA 90% of the GOP)
Was it John Nolte who asked, "Why would I pay the Weekly Standard to call me a stupid racist when CNN will provide that service for free?"
Mike Pence Surprises March for Life Crowd, Introduces Trump’s Message

Forgotten Deliberately Memory-Holed 80s Mystery Click
Everyone tries to pretend this band act didn't happen, especially after that little glitch during a "live" performance, but people much, much older than I am tell me this song was huge at the time and most people really liked it.
This song also happened, Music Deniers
Ever Notice the NeverTrumpers Urge Compromise and Conciliation with Leftists But Offer Nothing But Contempt and Never-Ending Attacks towards Conservatives?
Anyone want to explain why that might be? Could it be, possibly, that NeverTrumpers have always felt a deeper and closer kinship with the left than the right, who they deplore and consider to be their cultural inferiors, and so wish friendly relations with the left while making never-ending war on the right?
All True Conservatives Love and Respect Fusion GPS, the FakeNews Mafia That Peddled the Lie that the Planed Parenthood Sting Videos Were "Deceptively Edited"
Or do the True Cons accept that Fusion GPS ran a fraudulent information op for hire in this case but are otherwise of sterling character?
Unexpectedly, A.B. Stoddard Spirals Into an Emotional Maelstrom Over Trump Again, This Time About the Shutdown aka The New Holocaust
A few weeks ago she was on the verge of literal tears trying to deal with the Outrageous Outrage of Trump's announced Syria withdrawal.
Science: Women Prefer "Woke" Men to be Their Shopping Buddies When They're Buying Sexy Underwear to Excite the Sexist Men They Want to Bang
The headline is sillyfied, but there are actual studies showing that women would rather bang a traditionally masculine guy than a #Woke guy

"Deep Blue," Maybe the Largest Known Great White Shark, Photographed Off of Hawaii
It's a big shark but I'm spoiled by Hollywood exaggeration. I think about Jaws, which ate not one but two fuckin' boats, then look at this shark, and think, "What a little pussy. I could probably take him."
Electric F-150 "In the Works"
Hey, if this pans out, maybe a single DC resident and/or media worker will be able to say "Yes" to John Ekdahl's question, "Do you know a single person who owns a truck?"
Matt and Mega From Keto Connect Respond to Jillian Michaels' Ignorant Claims About the Keto Diet
I like the part where she goes "Sure, it helps you lose weight, and sure, it can reverse diabetes, and sure, it can reverse PCOS, and that's horrifying for some reason"
She also then says that autophagy is a bad thing. I don't understand what the hell she's talking about.
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."

Thought Leader Ben Shapiro Figures Out That Maybe the Leftwing Are Not Our Very Good Friends At All and Perhaps Have More Malign Ambitions Than They Freely Admit
The conservative movement is in the very best of hands.
Hey, maybe ineffectual clown Ben Shapiro should once again deploy his standard Hammer Meets Imaginary Nail "solution" to everything and Challenge Them to a Debate. That should fix everything.
