Draw and Strike: Attention Peasants: The Show Trials Have Been Cancelled Until further Notice!
"In his book, 'Vision of the Anointed: Social Policy As A Basis For Self- Congratulation', Professor Thomas Sowell discusses four stages of failure that necessarily follow when social 'experts' or 'activists' attempt to bring about changes in a group or culture...." [rdbrewer]

Watch Obama Refer to Himself 118 Times in Three Minutes [rdbrewer]

John Sexton, Breitbart: The Primitive Roots of Political Correctness
"Altruistic punishment, simply put, is the expression of negative emotions toward those who fail to cooperate with the group. It is a pressure tactic designed to whip people into line with the tribe and its goals." [rdbrewer]

Sean Davis: Language Policing Doesn’t Pervert Liberalism, It Is Liberalism
"Modern liberalism depends on the language police, and Jonathan Chait himself is Exhibit A." [rdbrewer]
Ben Shapiro, Truth Revolt: The First Amendment is Dead
Video. Because we have to walk on eggshells around people's feelings. [rdbrewer]

CBS Boston: Tom Brady Has A Cold
Teddy Bear the porcupine's prediction is starting to come into focus a little, huh? [rdbrewer]
National Sorority Organizations Order UVa Chapters to Stay Home While Fraternity Brothers Are Out Partying
In order to reduce the possibility of Fake Rape Allegations, I imagine... Note the local chapters are objecting to this absurd nannyism

Kevin D. Williamson: Liberals Seek PC Exemption
"[C]ontrary to Chait’s characterization, [political correctness] never went away. The difference is that it is now being used as a cudgel against white liberals such as Jonathan Chait..." [rdbrewer]

BBC: 'Super Saturn' with giant rings is first outside solar system
"'If we could replace Saturn's rings with the rings around J1407, they would be easily visible at night and be many times larger than the full moon....'" Added: More from Fox News. [rdbrewer]

Josh Kraushaar: Obama Is Setting Up Hillary Clinton to Fail
"The president's approval rating is inching up, but there's little public enthusiasm for his liberal agenda. That puts Clinton in an uncomfortable position." Don't forget: it's all about Obama. [rdbrewer]

Harry Enten, FiveThirtyEight: How Meteorologists Botched The Blizzard Of 2015
"Forecasters, including yours truly, decided to go all-in on one weather model: the European model (or Euro). And the Euro was way off. Other models had this storm pegged." [rdbrewer]

Neil Munro: Poll Shows Democrats Lose Swing Voters Over Amnesty
"Voters will side with the GOP if they fight President Obama’s effort to print work permits for millions of migrant workers, according to a new poll." [rdbrewer]

Robert Wargas, The Telegraph: How do identity politics work? A quick refresher course
From about a year ago. "Savage acts the way he does because he believes he is entitled to do so. He believes his status as a member of The Oppressed exempts him from the rules of common decency and politeness that his Bourgeois Oppressors follow." [rdbrewer]

Gabe: How Not to Fight Terrorism
"The Expatriate Terrorist Act before Congress is unconstitutional and unnecessary." [rdbrewer]

Gabe: Mike Huckabee Urges A Constitutional Crisis Over Marriage
"It is not the situation that, as Huckabee suggests, all three branches of federal government must first agree on what the law is for it to be the law of the land. It is even less the case that Congress and the president get to determine that the Constitution means something contrary to what the Supreme Court decides." [rdbrewer]

Robert Tracinski: Why Islam Is More Violent Than Christianity: An Atheist’s Guide
"But in today’s context, it’s absurd to equate Islam and Christianity. Pointing to the Spanish Inquisition tends to undermine the point rather than confirm it: if you have to look back three hundred years to find atrocities, it’s because there are so few of them today.... As an atheist, I have no god in this fight, so to speak." [rdbrewer]
Teddy Bear the porcupine predicts the Giants will win the Superbowl
And so far he's batting 1.000. [rdbrewer]

CJ Ciaramella: Asset Forfeiture Reform Bill Introduced in Congress
"'The FAIR Act will ensure that government agencies no longer profit from taking the property of U.S. citizens without due process, while maintaining the ability of courts to order the surrender of proceeds of crime.'" [rdbrewer]

Discover Magazine: Wild dolphins exchange names when they meet at sea [rdbrewer]

American Glob: Early Photos of #Snowmageddon2015 [rdbrewer]
Dudes At the Sundance Film Festival All Look Pretty Dumb
They seem very excited to wear their cold-weather jackets... too excited
TruthRevolt: Pope Francis Wants to Cross Southern Border to Show ‘Brotherhood and Support for Immigrants’
"'To enter the United States from the border with Mexico would be a beautiful gesture of brotherhood and support for immigrants.'" Because we just can't have enough children riding "the death train" to America. Via commenter "Costanza Defense." [rdbrewer]

Boehner admits 'couple of stumbles' in GOP agenda
"In addition to the border bill, Republicans were forced to withdraw legislation that would have restricted abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy." Who could've guessed this kind of thing would keep happening? [rdbrewer]

Devlin Barrett: U.S. Spies on Millions of Drivers
"Many state and local law-enforcement agencies are accessing the database for a variety of investigations... putting a wealth of information in the hands of local officials who can track vehicles in real time on major roadways." [rdbrewer]

Maureen Mullarkey: Pope Francis Is A Leftist And Must Be Called Out
"Pope Francis has associated with revolutionaries and ideologies that destroy human life and living conditions. The right response is not silence." It's like the ostentation of the new rich, except it's not the conspicuous use of money; it's the vulgar, self-indulgent use of his authority. I don't need to hear what the Pope thinks about iPhones and climate, for example. One would think he has more important things to occupy his time. [rdbrewer]

Michael Barone: Are today's Millennials a new Victorian generation?
"The most obvious evidence of the Millennials’ virtuous behavior is the vast decline in violent crime in the last 25 years." [rdbrewer]

Obama Sends Political Team To Israel To Defeat Netanyahu (Funded By State Dept.)

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: Bowe Bergdahl Has Been Charged With Desertion
"The Army came to this decision months ago, but the White House has been stonewalling...." More from Yid With Lid. [rdbrewer]

Jon Gabriel: Musicians vs. Politicians, Part XCLVII
"Conforming slavishly to stereotype, the Dropkick Murphys are boring lefties who get offended when non-approved people enjoy their derivative tunes. The over-the-hill band bravely took to Twitter to react precisely as everyone expected." [rdbrewer]

Al Weaver: Limbaugh: Scott Walker ‘The Blueprint’ For GOP If They Are ‘Serious About Beating The Left’
"[Limbaugh said] the GOP needs to 'hoist' Walker on a chair they used to take Caesar through the crowds with.' ¶ 'If you have spent any time listening to this program in the last two years, you know that I believe Scott Walker is the blueprint for the Republican Party....'" [rdbrewer]
The best thing on Twitter today, courtesy of Moron RD Brewer. [NDH]

Larry Correia: Sad Puppies 3: The Ensaddening.
"If you’d like to nominate good books, stories, and related works for the Hugos so that the biggest award in sci-fi/fantasy isn’t just a Social Justice Warrior circle jerk, you need to get yourself a supporting membership to Sasquan before the end of January." [rdbrewer]
