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

This is a delight:

Ebola Outbreak Now Declared a World Health Emergency

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

—Ace of Spades

She didn't want to use language about transsexuals in talking about abortion, thinking, I guess, that some people might think it's weird when you keep talking about men's need of abortion services.

She also apparently used slightly, slightly softer euphemisms for abortion (like "abortion care" -- see, they care!), which the Abortion Warriors found insufficiently strident.

The Morning Rant

"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.

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.

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.

Squad Goals!: Democrats Will Be Forced to Vote on Impeachment, Which Is What Nancy Pelosi Was Hoping to Avoid

—Ace of Spades

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.

And if that puts your allegedly "moderate" members at risk -- tough shit.

No more secret deals to hide contentious debates from the public.

And that goes, most of all, for the Corporatist Cuck Overlords (or former overlords) of the GOP.

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!

Peter Thiel: Google May be Infiltrated by Chinese Intelligence

—Ace of Spades

He says Google must answer three questions:

"Number one: How many foreign intelligence agencies have infiltrated your Manhattan Project for AI (artificial intelligence)?" Thiel reportedly asked. "Number two: Does Google’s senior management consider itself to have been thoroughly infiltrated by Chinese intelligence?"

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.

Ages ago, Barbara Broccoli (daughter of EON co-founder "Cubby" Broccoli) was asked if she'd ever make a Female James Bond movie, and she said: "James Bond will always be a man."

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

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.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"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. Don’t get down, aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

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

—Ace of Spades

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.

BuzzFeed Weighing Whether or Not to Doxx a Critic of the Media

—Ace of Spades

CarpeDonkum is a meme maker and a gif maker. He has committed no crimes and advocated for no violence (unlike, say, antifa and its CNN defenders such as Chris Cuomo (not all punches are morally equal) and Don LeMon.

His crime is that he makes fun of the media. Which is, don't kid yourself, now as close to an official Thoughtcrime as you can come.

He was invited to the White House summit and Buzzfeed is so mad about that they're very close to doxxing him.


Meanwhile, Ben Shapiro, who has worked pretty hard to justify the deplatforming of his Twitter enemies, is upset that Trump would invite deplatformed people to the White House to build public pressure to deplatform them:

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.

Keeping Up With the Cucks

—Ace of Spades

For the first tweet, note that Jane Coasten is the "reporter" on the GOP and the right for the very leftwing Vox, which recently ran articles suggesting that Andy Ngo deserved his beating by antifa, and that antifa should arm themselves with guns for the coming revolution.

The Bulwark's thrice-married Charlie Sykes wants to probe her mindthoughts and soulpatterns about the right.


Meanwhile...



And note that after a weekend in which pro-illegal-alien "protesters" took down the American flag and replaced it with the Mexican one...


...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."

The safe-for-MSNBC liberals who infest "conservative" media and hold all the high positions and editorships are laser-focused on giving ample coverage to all the important news:

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

"Last time I discussed how the Democrats would win the trust of the American people and demonstrate how how they were worthy of governing. But they will take the opportunity to miss the opportunity, just like they missed a big opportunity when Donald Trump was elected. Oh, I know they're bitter and angry about 2016 since it was supposed to be the start of year one of the reign of Her Most Adipose Thighness, and the progressives probably thought, boy howdy, now is the time to go full speed ahead and implement every single item on our bucket list. But it didn't work out for them, so they've been throwing temper tantrums and promoting conspiracy theories for nearly three years. Not very productive. But they could've done something different. They could have looked at Donald Trump objectively and thought, ok, what does he have that we can work with? They could've looked at what he's done in the past. They could've read his book The Art of the Deal and maybe gotten a clue about how he thinks. They could've noticed that he has a yuuge ego that likes to be stroked and schmoozed. They could've told each other, look, our gal didn't win, so we're not going to get all we want. But maybe we can get a few things passed and cut our losses. Let's figure out how to butter him up, tell him what a great guy he is, show him a bit of respect, and maybe then he'd be more amenable to doing a deal with us. If the Democrats had done this, they would've demonstrated, I think, some competence, and also wisdom -- wisdom to realize that in politics, you can't get everything you want, but by settling for less, you can perhaps set yourself up for greater gains down the road. In other words, they could've incrementally ratcheted the progressive enterprise forward by some small amount. But no, they were so angry at coming within a hair's breadth of winning the big enchilada that they, once again, overplayed their hand. The progressive Democrats declard all-out, scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners war against the president. They deluded themselves into thinking that they could remove Trump from office, and then, somehow, magically, Hillary would become president. Fast forward two and a half years. What have the Democrats accomplished? Well, nothing, basically. Trump is still in office, appointing judges right and left, the economy is roaring along, and all the Democrats are doing, when they're not fighting and squabbling with each other, is trying to come up with new ways to impeach Trump. It's like they're Wile E. Coyote thinking that this time, yes *this* time, with these new Acme rocket-powered roller skates and Acme anvil dropped from an Acme hot-air balloon, they can bring catch that pesky Roadrunner and make a meal of him. Our plan to get Trump will work this time! Trust us! And all Trump says is meep, meep."

The Morning Report - 07/15/19

—J.J. Sefton

hwswtpeloc.jpg

Good morning kids. The start of a new week and several stories are converging across a couple of different categories (with the locus being the immigration crisis) that confirm what I have been stating for quite some time now. To wit, that the Democrat Party is a hostile domestic enemy and represents the greatest threat to the continued survival of the republic. One can argue that this has always been the case from almost the time of founding, and for sure since the Wilson administration. But at the very least, that party (with the not inconsiderable assistance of the media and academia) had perpetuated and maintained, to a greater or lesser extent, the illusion of love of country; that their disagreements with conservatives and Republicans were on matters of policy. Yet, they draped themselves in the flag and railed against the latter's putative reactionary and retrograde weltanschauung, preventing the nation from living up to its promise, despite the fact that for 100 years or more, their goal had all along been the destruction of America as founded or, to coin a phrase, "fundamental transformation."

I think it's safe to say that as of this past weekend, the myth the Left had built up of itself and concomitantly projected about us has been severely damaged if not shattered for good. The Democrat Party is now at war with itself and it has revealed the ugly truth of who and what they are for all but the utterly blind to see. One the one hand, you have the old guard Trotskyites as exemplified by Nancy "Palsi" Pelosi who continue to believe in the need to hoodwink the American people into voting for them now being confronted by the Maoists represented by Chiquita Khruschev AOC who neither understand, nor appreciate the long march through the institutions that not only put America on the brink but ironically enough begat her and her ilk, courtesy of nearly five decades of brainwashing in schools and universities controlled by anti-Americans in virtually every position. Now, like far too many of her generation, they want gold handed to them on a silver platter... And they want it now.

Writing in American Greatness, the estimable Victor Davis Hanson states:

...In the manner that Robespierre and his Committee of Public Safety guillotined naive Girondists, so too, "the Squad" of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Ill.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) are now damning Nancy Pelosi as a racist. No matter that just hours earlier Pelosi herself had called Donald Trump a racist who wanted to turn away all nonwhite people at the border simply because they were nonwhite.

Again, Pelosi is old, and in the way, and is a target of her party's quick adoption of her own identity politics. What were the Pelosi generation, the left-wing journalist crowd, and the professoriate thinking when they harangued nonstop about the forthcoming irrelevancy of supposed old white dinosaurs? That thereby, such woke white liberals somehow had purchased exemptions from the very executioners whom they had helped create?...

...Mostly, the Jacobins frighten the old guard progressives. They empower Donald Trump. They make what is left of the Never-Trump Republicans look even more ridiculous. Ultimately, they are racists, who self-define by their appearance and their ethnic backgrounds in an ever more integrated, multiracial country in which the effort to transcend those Neanderthal considerations was largely the story of the last century.

Where will it all lead?...

For sure, that is the $64 trillion dollar question both in terms of the Democrat-Left as well as more broadly the fate of the nation. But I think we can state without question, where it started: the election of Donald Trump in 2016. He's proven himself to be an outsider who has been, and remains, fully committed to reversing the suicidal course our nation and culture have been on (and slaughtered many sacred cows in the process). They central pillar of his crusade has been a completely broken immigration system that intentionally corrodes our economy and our culture at the same time. As the Democrats spent the past few weeks blood-libeling the President as well as ICE, DHS and CBP as the moral and actual equivalent of SS guards cruelly torturing illegal alien children in "concentration camps," the President Tweeted:

So interesting to see "Progressive" Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don't they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can't leave fast enough. I'm sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

I don't think I need tell you the reaction this received from the casting couches to the faculty lounges to the Lido Deck of The Kristol Ship of Fools, but my reaction is "fuckin' A." Amazing how despite being painted as irredeemably racist, sexist, bigoted, misogynistic, homophobic, Islamophobic, oppressive to non-whites and illegitimately founded, millions of people from all over the world (and possibly the M-79 star system) risk their lives, their children's lives and other children's lives to get here. Why is that Kaepernick? Why is that Rapinoe? Shouldn't you and your ilk be doing everything you possibly can to dissuade people from coming here? No, of course not, because you and everyone like you lack even two brain cells to rub together to ignite even a spark of a clue as to what the reality is. Many people see the miracle that is this nation from the misery and squalor of the third world shit-holes they seek to escape, while far too many others sadly are being enticed here as a means to overwhelm and collapse us from within, while filling up the voter rolls of the Democrat Party and depressing the wages and even displacing the American worker so the Koch/CoC whores can squeeze one last penny out of the strained cloaca of the golden goose before it disappears in a bloody mass of feathers and fat.

From a tactical standpoint, this is once again Trump being brilliant. He has forced the Democrat-Left Media Complex to choose sides, and by defending Nancy Palsi from being labeled as a racist, he's put her in the uncomfortable position of having to agree with him in order to defend herself from the charge. No doubt her enemies are going to have a field day with that while spewing even more insanity to turn off even more voters.

Let's go to the links, and staying on this topic:

I don't expect them to take that lying down. Also, college radio outlet CNN actually promoted the AntiFa brigade to which the dead thug belonged, thugs in Aurora, CO tear down the American flag from and ICE facility there and replace it with a Mexican flag while defacing a Blue Lives Matter banner, ignorant slut "Cookie" Milano compares VP Pence to Heinrich Himmler, and children of Border Patrol agents are getting harassed at their schools.

    Wow, Jeffrey Epstein? Never heard of him. Seriously, you'll need to dunk yourself in a vat of molten selenium after reading Michelle Malkin's piece, while the Dems try to put all of this on Trump, Alex Acosta's departure takes away that smokescreen, and despite decrying the evils of "dark money," Andrew Gillum has no problem using all sorts of shady dealings in an effort to register a million votes to flip Florida.

    POLITICS
    At least half of the links deal with the internecine battle for control of the Democrat Party that is now out in the open. One common factor is the man pulling the strings of this so-called "squad" of rabid dames, Saikat Chakrabarti who Rahm "creepy ballerina" Emanual took to Twitter to call a "snot-nosed kid." He may be pulling their strings, but someone else is pulling his and bankrolling him. Is that rotten goulash I'm smelling?... NBC/WSJ poll as Fauxca-Has-Been edging out Kamala-Toe and Sandersnista who are tied, Amy Klobuchar attempts to go to the middle by opposing open borders while eating a chimichanga with an afro-pick, nutcase Jay Inslee thinks Megan Rapinoe would be a great secretary of state, Jeffrey Lord rips Paul Ryno, and Daniel Greenfield with an revealing piece examining just who is backing whom.

    FIRST AMENDMENT, CENSORSHIP, FAKE NEWS, BIG BROTHER BIG TECH
    Amazon muzzling ex-gay therapy while pimping suicide, Pinterest and Twitter silence pro-life group, Facebook condones use of violence against those it deems dangerous then backtracks, Time's latest cover is an unintentional in-kind contribution to the Trump re-election campaign, Tu-Ca's riff on the dangers of immigration is spot on, and fake news starts with fake language.

    Wes Pruden, Washington Times editor and columnist, dies at 83
    Thanks to "Ha" for alerting me. (And no, that's not any kind of insult to Pruden; "Ha" is the name he always goes by. A bit awkward in this context but it is just his screen-name.)
    LOL reply to the sanctimonious David French, bewailing the country's divisions: "O! Why is the country so divided!?" shrieked the Russia Truther.
    Liberal atheist AllahPundit just can't stop attacking Christians
    It's "racist" to attack any group you don't belong to, but the liberal atheist AllahPundit attacks conservative Christians, accusing them of Godcrime, four or five times per week
    It's also cool that he's quoting Real TruCon Conservatives like MSNBC flunky Michael Steele, too
    It's like AllahPundit is saying Christians aren't real Americans and should go back to their own countries, except he says it 5 days a week

    I'm avoiding the full pile on, because I understand this person is nice and personally loyal, but a Leading NeverTrumper and Fusion GPS conspiracy theory promoter just tweeted, about Stevens' death: Man, the confirmation hearings over John Paul Stevens' replacement is going to be pure fire!
    This wouldn't be such a big deal except we keep being told by this crew that they're the Smart Ones who Really Understand Politics. In fact, they're almost all unaccomplished and a bit dim. They mistake "Famous among a tiny subculture addicted to Twitter" for actually famous. Or actually accomplished.
    A friend cracks: "Maybe she got this wrong because she was reading from Fusion GPS' dossier on Stevens."
    You know, people involved in writing and communications might want to consider that Twitter Is Not Their Friend. It encourages lazy writing and thoughtless #HotTakes. Why bother checking to see the last decade that Stevens worked as a justice when precious seconds for getting in your #EarlyHotTake are slipping away!

    Here's a topic: Can you think of bands that seemed to get a lot of promotion in movies and tv but didn't go anywhere? I seem to remember David Johannson (especially in his "Buster Poindexter" persona/act) getting a lot of tv/movie push and not being very good; Oingo Boingo too. (Danny Elfman eventually made it as a composer, but not as a rocknroll front man.)
    Forgotten 80s Mystery Click

    Baseball Cuck is, as usual, convinced he is smarter than everyone else in the world, despite continents of evidence to the contrary
    The ability of the NeverTrump pseudo-intellectuals to maintain such passionate belief in their intellectual supremacy despite overwhelming evidence that they are wrong about literally everything is... how do I say it? ... rather Millennial in its delusional self-regard, no?
    How do you spell "hamster," BaseballCuck?
    An ocean of smug, a thimbleful of brains
    Flashback: Glenn Reynolds on How David Brooks Gave Us Donald Trump
    " It's clear that [Brooks would] like a social/political revolution that was more refined, better-mannered, more focused on the Constitution and, well, more bourgeois as opposed to in-your-face and working class.
    The thing is, we had that movement. It was the Tea Party movement...
    Yet the tea party movement was smeared as racist, denounced as fascist, harassed with impunity by the IRS and generally treated with contempt by the political establishment — and by pundits like Brooks, who declared "I'm not a fan of this movement." 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.
