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

—Ace of Spades

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

No, you're guilty of misgendering, Sir.

Video at the link.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Equilibrium, how does it work?

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

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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

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

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

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

Whatever.

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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



This is fantastic.

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

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

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



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



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

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


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

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

LOL.

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

—Ace of Spades

This is completely, absolutely, horrifyingly true.



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

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

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

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

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



Mmm, savory.

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He wrote:

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

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

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

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

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

You fucking narcissistic brain-damanged c*nts.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A License To Hate

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Morning Report - 1/17/19

—J.J. Sefton

schuofc.jpg

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

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

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

RUSH: See?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Church Sex Abuse Scandal: The Pope smokes dope.

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

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

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

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

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

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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

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

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

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

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wallace called it a "resume buster."

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

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

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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



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




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

She also wants Democrats to build the wall.

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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

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

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

...

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

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

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

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

Yeah, I doubt it too.

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

—Ace of Spades

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

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

Because that's straight-up tyranny.

From a Washington Post interview:

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

When asked which it is, O'Rourke paused.

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

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

CNN Analyst Tells David Webb That He Benefits from White Privilege

—Ace of Spades

This is a banana.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"The other day, I saw some progressive twitter lunatic spewing her idiocy to the world at large which consisted of her shouting 'Fetal tissue is not a person' over and over again like a 2-year-old throwing a tantrum as if repetition would somehow make it true. Because, actually, it is. A person, I mean. A fetus has its own body, as defined by its own DNA, which is not the same as the DNA of either parent. It has a gender. It's not long before it has brain waves, a beating heart, blood, unique fingerprints, and a functioning nervous system. About the only thing it doesn't have is a birthday. Yet. Of course, if you're a progressive, I guess 'fetal tissue' doesn't become a person until it first votes for a Democrat."

The Morning Report - 1/16/19

—J.J. Sefton

carsonins.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek so here we go. First up, followers of the space-rock-pedophile-death-cult otherwise known as the religion of peace demonstrated their world-renown tolerance and inclusion by tolerating the hell out of a Nairobi, Kenya hotel complex. So far, 11 people have been loved to death by Al Shabab. Let's all go down to Rashida "Rancida" T-Labia's office and see if she's ululating to the oldies and passing out candy.

Next, the continuing drama over the Democrat-Left's refusal to secure our borders and the resulting government shutdown, the longest in US history with millions of non-dead bodies not piling up in the streets. Oh, the non-horror. A group representing victims of illegal alien violence, after meeting with GOP leaders like Mo "Better" Brooks and Louie "Go-Go" Gohmert, then went over to Nancy Palsi's office and invited themselves in to demand she fund the wall and stop aiding and abetting the destruction of the nation. I guess they don't know that a leper can't change its pox. But, well played nonetheless (something about "getting in their faces?"). Of equal significance, a group of freshman Dems are publicly breaking with Palsi and want to give Trump the money for the wall.

Speaking of our Mr. Brooks, he took to the House podium to blast the Dems, a look at why the census citizenship question, recently rejected by Judges Buch M. Danno and Tiny Bubbles, is absolutely necessary, and the leader of the now-forming next wave of migrant invaders has been arrested in Honduras for rape-rape a la Whoopi. Whoopie!

Sliding into politics, scandal-wise, while California burned thanks to the insane luddite policies of the Enviro-Communists, politicians as well as flunkies in the utility industry fled to Hawaii (tried as I might, me and my rabbis couldn't get the weather machine to tickle Kilauea on their heads). VP Pence was on the Ol' Yeller Power Hour and told Mark Levin that President Trump is not backing down on the wall or the shutdown, a normal judge has slapped down the Federal union lawsuit to force the government to "reopen," the good Roger Simon's headline says it all (but read the link anyway), when it comes to racism Nicole Wallace can't see the Democrat forest for the Democrat trees what with all the "strange fruit" hanging from them while Brit Hume rightly blasts the New York Times for their totally disingenuous attack on Steve King. And if you saw my post yesterday, I heartily concur. A good friend of mine echoed the sentiments of many others in the commentariat about what King said being dumb and stupid, and despite all the PC shackles and swords of Damocles over our heads vis a vis language, we should condemn what he said. Totally disagree - I think King was the victim of in-artful phraseology and, in agreement with my friend, even talking to the Slimes in the first place. Enough on that. Meanwhile in the Democrat 2020 Horse Whores Race, "Mickey" O'Rourke now has to talk out of the other side of his mouth on immigration, Kirstin Jello-Brain waddled onto the Colbert stage to announce she's in, Amy Klobuchar might be interested in unleashing her form of horrid abuse reserved for her staff to all 315 million of us (as if she has a chance), the Dem Senators are pissed at the bug-eyed, horse-toothed, brain-dead Socialist/Socialite sucking out all the oxygen from the room (and scaring the shit out of heretofore unaware voters), Bill De Bolshevik loves redistribution of wealth - mostly to his campaign, Daniel Greenfield scalps Fauxca-HasBeen, on Rick Scott's appeal to the latino voters in Florida, and the Dem impeachment strategy: make shit up and scream "treason" (and racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, Islamophobia...).

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: how the media hid actual Democrat/Russky koluzhnikovs, the walls are supposedly closing in on the FBI and its total malfeasance and a look at the death of erstwhile Weekly Standard.

Closely linked is the Mueller Inquisition/Democrat Treason Coverup where Rabbi Fischer delivers an impassioned plea to the Trump-haters. I agree with him in spirit but unfortunately, in lamenting what could happen if/when a Democrat wins a presidential election, he doesn't realize that no matter what happens, that party will disregard the rule of law as standard operating procedure. And to round it out a deeper dive into the persecution of Mike Flynn.

Two big gun items, a Colorado columnist is openly risking imprisonment for defying his town's gun confiscation law (he legally owns his weapons), and a DoJ report confirms what we all know but what the gun-grabbers refuse to acknowledge.

At the foreign desk, Ace had a long look at Theresa May's Brexit fiasco yesterday afternoon, but the IBD says damn the torpedoes; England must leave the EU, the same goes for a rising party in Germany about that country ankling the failed globalist project, and a look at the Yellow Vest movement and the fall of Macron. Also, the Chi-Coms are feeling the pinch and sending an envoy here to discuss ending the tariff war, Canada was right to detain the CFO of Huawei, and a report says former Mexico prexy Nieto took a $100 million bribe from drug lord "El Chapo."

Defense news, Green Beret whistleblowers are being targeted for revealing the dirty little secret that the special forces are woefully ill-prepared thanks to diversity mandates to include dames, (note to self: call Gillette with great new ad campaign idea!).

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Meet the black-robed California dhimmi doing a Stepin Fetchit routine for CAIR.

Domestic news: Mixed signals and feelings about William Barr. On the one hand he is a DC insider having already served as Bush 41's AG and has made noises about safeguarding the integrity of the Mueller investigation (his being a close chum with Mueller is also not filling me with strength and confidence). On the other hand, he is indicating he wants to perhaps investigate the FBI's abuse of power, and he let Maizie Hirohito have it with both barrels, so maybe that is something. Meh.

Healthcare: A new poll indicates a clear majority of Americans favor overturning Roe vs. Wade, and an accompanying piece on the big lies of the abortion industry.

Edjumakayshins: Newly erected California governor Gavin Nuisance faces his first big test as the Los Angeles teachers union goes on strike. It's not so much about pay, since he can just tax the shit out of whoever still pays taxes or print his own money, but more about the continued war on charter schools. They are not union-controlled and offer a haven, ironically, for black and minority parents who want to see their kids actually get a relatively indoctrination-free education in a relatively violence-free environment.

FemiNazism and War on Masculinity and Sanity: This one turned my stomach - the UK's first transgender family is set to mutilate their own son (channeling the opening line to Dylan's "Highway 61" to rewrite the lyrics). This is just the epitome of psychotic evil. Meanwhile, Bill De Bolshevik sez "X" marks the spot where whatever hole or appendage you chose to have or not have is indicated, Calypso Louie's house organ defends the leaders of the Women's March from charges of racism from the filthy shape-shifting, bloodsucking heebs and evil white sluts while the DNC very quietly distances itself from the Women's March itself. Why so quietly? And the only thing toxic about masculinity is the aftereffects of forcibly removing the "y" chromosome.

From hither and yon, a fascinating look that ties abortion in with the illegal alien issue vis a vis the elitist progressive/regressive mindset, there's a reason I refer to her as Ruth Bader Meinhoff, another look at the Anita-ing of Gillette, happy 100th birthday to the Volstead Act, and finally the tenth anniversary of Sully Sullenberger and the Miracle on the Hudson.

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

“We’ve got to teach history based not on what’s in fashion but what’s important. If we forget what we did, we won’t know who we are. I’m warning of an eradication of the American memory that could result, ultimately, in an erosion of the American spirit.” Ronald Reagan


Quote II

But I respect her as an opponent – to do otherwise would be to lie to ourselves that our opponents are hopeless and helpless. She’s a tough old bird, surviving cancer and other perils and yet she always comes back to torment us with her appalling jurisprudence. You gotta give her props for never quitting. She’s the Energizer Liberal Jurist.Kurt Schlichter


Quote III

"Having my culture represented by an almost entirely white troupe of dancers is incredibly frustrating. Additionally, the director, and other representatives of the theater company absolve themselves of cultural responsibility by saying that the point of the show is to increase exposure of Hinduism and its traditions. Hinduism is not widely practiced by white people. Hinduism is not widely practiced by Europeans. Hinduism is practiced mostly by South Asian people, who are historically not white and have faced discrimination for that.”

White European dancers will never know my intersectional experience as a Hindu woman, being a brown bodied person and the other aspects of systematic racism that I, as well as other South Asian people, have experienced,”Maya Krishna

Gillette: The Best a Cuck Can Get

—Ace of Spades

The Gillette attack on men, in order to appeal to women who don't buy their overpriced face-razors and soyboys who either don't have facial hair or let it grow out into ironic parody beards, is backfiring, because of course it is. Get woke, go broke.

Gillette is being attacked and trolled mercilessly in the comments to its video, and commenters are saying that Gillette is deleting comments as quickly as they're put up.

Because they're deleting comments, I can't guarantee that the below comment, and Gillette's gratitude for it, is/was real, or if it was spoofed.

But there were a lot of cuck comments that I saw (before they were deleted).

So it's possible that Gillette favorited this reply until someone explained to them that this is in fact an insult.

GilletteCuck.png

Here's another screencap, with more replies:


GilletteCuck2.png

Another comment I saw said something like: "I loved this campaign, but you've lost one customer -- my wife's boyfriend was offended by the ad and said he'll never buy Gillette again."

One thing that keeps getting posted in the comments a lot is a list of Procter & Gamble's other products in desperate need of economic punishment, which include Joy, Mr. Clean, Swiffer, Brawn, Dawn, Fabreze, Gain, Panteen, Head & Shoulders, Always, Tampax, Bounty, Tide and a bunch of other easily, easily boycotted products, easily substituted with another company's almost-exactly-the-same products.

Another claim that keeps coming up: Procter & Gamble's alleged use of underage workers and abusive work conditions in its overseas plants. I don't know if that charge is fair or not, but I'm also not sure if it's fair to claim that men are all abusers and rapists.

I certainly wouldn't recommend that you troll and downvote this video -- as conservatives, we must support and promote Corporate Interests as if they are the living embodiment of God Almighty Ximself (some cucks tell me so, at least) -- but if you do, please report your troll comments so that I can pass them on to The Bulwark so that they may scold you for not being True Corporate Cuckservatives.

MSNPC's Stephanie Ruhle: Trump's Got Kompromat on Lindsey Graham Because He's a Huge Homo

—Ace of Spades

"Progressivism" in a nutshell.

"Before Don got elected, Lindsey Graham called Donald Trump a racist, xenophobic bigot. Those are Lindsey Graham's words," Jolly said. "I doubt Lindsey Graham could tell you Donald Trump has had a change of heart in the last 24 months, I bet the change of heart has been with Lindsey Graham, not the president."

"Or it could be that Donald Trump or somebody knows something pretty extreme about Lindsey Graham," Ruhle replied. "We’re gonna have to leave it there."

The smirk Ruhle produced when she spoke suggests she was referring to rumors about Graham’s sexuality, which some Democrats have been trumpeting anew recently. Jon Cooper, chairman of the Democratic Coalition super PAC, explicitly accused Graham on Saturday of letting himself be blackmailed for "some pretty serious kink."



David Rutz notes that this has been the pattern and practice of Democrats for a while now.

Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler made a pair of jokes last year quipping Graham was in the closet, drawing sharp blowback both times.

"If you're wondering why Republicans took a sick day today, it's probably because it’s #NationalComingOutDay. Looking at you @LindseyGrahamSC," she wrote on Oct. 11.

I reached out to Cory Booker for comment but he had a prior engagement giving a Congressional Handjob of Honor to a tranny WAC.

Former "The View" host Rosie O'Donnell tweeted "fuck u u closeted idiot" in September in response to a tweet Graham sent last year attacking attorney Michael Avenatti, whose client made dubious claims of attending high school parties with Brett Kavanaugh where gang rape occurred and suggesting without evidence Kavanaugh spiked women's drinks.

...

HBO host Bill Maher said around the same time that Graham needed his "dead boyfriend" John McCain to provide "stabilizing influence." At the time, McCain, one of Graham's closest allies and friends in the U.S. Senate, had died about a month earlier at age 81.

I'm not so much outraged by these jokes as I am outraged over the fact that these jagoffs will get Cable ACE awards for their homophobic jokes whereas I might get deplatformed for a similar joke about Cory Booker.

"A Little Gift" for Italy: Brazil Deports Leftwing Italian Terrorist, Who Had Long Had Asylum Under Leftwing Brazilian Presidents, Back to Italy and Back to Jail

—Ace of Spades

They keep telling me that I should be afraid of these Trump-Like Presidents arising around the world.

I'm not sure why I should be afraid.

This terrorist actually fled Brazil last year when he realized a right-wing president was going to be elected. He was actually in Bolivia when arrested. Now, I don't know the details of why he was then sent back to Brazil (who then sent him back to Italy) or why Brazil is taking credit for his capture. Did they provide intel? Were Brazilian agents present when he was arrested? Or is Brazil taking credit on the theory that he only fled his place of refuge because he knew the new president would extradite him to finish his jail sentence?

I don't know, to be honest. Brazil had something to do with this, but I don't know the extent of it.

Cesare Battisti, the Italian militant who spent decades on the run after being convicted of four murders in the 1970s, has been captured in Bolivia and will be extradited to Italy, authorities in Brazil and Italy said on Sunday.

"Italian terrorist Cesare Battisti was detained in Bolivia and will be soon brought to Brazil, from where he will probably be sent to Italy to serve a life sentence," tweeted Filipe G. Martins, a senior aide on international affairs to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

...

Battisti, a founding member of far-left Italian radical group Armed Proletarians for Communism, was convicted in absentia in 1993 of four political killings committed in the 1970s and sentenced to life in prison.

He was arrested late Saturday by local police and a special Interpol team including Italian investigators as he was walking alone on the streets of the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

...

Matteo Salvini, the Italian interior minister, praised Battisti's arrest and tweeted a caricature of him sitting in a deck chair on the beach headlined "The party is over".

...

On Sunday Eduardo Bolsonaro, the son of president Bolsonaro, tweeted to Mr Salvini: "Brazil is no longer a land of bandits. The 'little gift' is coming."


"Thoughts and prayers to the family of the victims of a murderer who has for years enjoyed a cowardly and lonely life, pampered by the left. The party is over." #FromWordsToDeeds

Teresa May's Brexit Plan Fails by 230 Votes, Failing 432 Against, 202 in Favor

—Ace of Spades

Both Brexiteers and Remainers joined forces to vote the plan down.

This was the worst defeat of a proposal put forth by the government in history.

There's a lurking suspicion that May and her cohort have deliberately negotiated such a terrible plan that they will wind up getting (they hope) what they wanted all along, a revote on Brexit in which Brexit is voted down.

The complete rejection of this plan tends to support that conspiracy theory.

With the clock ticking down to March 29, the date set in law for Brexit, the United Kingdom is now ensnared in the deepest political crisis in half a century as it grapples with how, or even whether, to exit the European project that it joined in 1973.

May's crushing loss, the first British parliamentary defeat of a treaty since 1864, marks the collapse of her two-year strategy of forging an amicable divorce with close ties to the EU after the March 29 exit.

"It is clear that the House does not support this deal, but tonight's vote tells us nothing about what it does support," May told parliament, moments after the result was announced.

"We need to confirm whether this government still enjoys the confidence of this House," May said.

There remains the possibility of a No-Deal Brexit, also called the "Hard Brexit," where Britain just leaves the EU without making any new agreements as far as the Irish border, trade, immigration status of UK citizens living in the EU and vice versa, and the 39 billion pound debt Britain supposedly owes the EU for the pleasure of having been the victim of it.

Sargon of Akkad makes the case that the No-Deal Brexit is preferable to any deal, because the EU needs and wants, for example, the 39 billion pounds it claims the UK "owes" it, and will become a lot more amenable to negotiation once it gets the sense that the UK is fine with just walking away and repudiating this alleged debt.

Only a few countries are net contributors to the EU as far as taxes; most are net recipients. Of the few countries which are net contributors, the UK is the second biggest (after Germany).

Without that 39 billion pounds from the UK, Germany, France, etc. will have to kick in more money to support the EU. Which means higher taxes.

Which will exacerbate the Yellow Jacket problem.

Which means that the UK has a stronger negotiating position than the media and establishment are telling the population.

That said, I don't think many Establishment types in the UK or anywhere else are comfortable making bold moves of any kind. They are cautious, cowardly types who cannot imagine doing something without having a bunch of their fellow cucks signing an agreement giving them permission to do it.

The British press is already painting a Hard Brexit as a Mad Max level apocalypse, claiming that because the UK imports a lot of beef and fish from the EU (specifically, mostly Ireland), therefore when the UK leaves the EU, it will have a massive beef and fish shortage, because it seems 1, you can't buy beef and fish from Ireland unless you're in the EU and 2, you can't buy beef and fish from any other country but Ireland.

So they're definitely making the case that unless May's (possibly deliberately) awful plan is passed, which it won't be, the UK must revote and reject Brexit or else WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE.

"Yellow Jacket" Protests Cross the Atlantic to Mexico, Where People Don the "Chalecos Amarillos" to Protest a Weeklong Gas Shortage

—Ace of Spades

Mexico's new president has shut down several large pipelines for distributing petroleum in order to combat petroleum theft by the cartels, I guess directly from the pipes, which he says robs Mexico of $3 billion per year.

But shutting down the main central hub of gas distribution means gas isn't being distributed much any more.

It's been almost a week since gas stations in the Mexican state of Jalisco started to run dry. Shortages have been reported in at least five other states and in the country's capital, too.

...

Mexico's new President and the country's state-run oil company have called for calm. They say there isn't a gas shortage -- just a change in the way fuel is distributed.

...

But as days pass, drivers' desperation grows. Family members take turns waiting in long lines for gas. Some comb social media for clues about which stations are open. Others have simply decided to leave their cars at home.

Below, video from France 24 of Mexicans protesting the shortages. A few Yellow Jackets are visible among the protesters.

I'm not going to translate it because it's mostly stuff you can get from the CNN article and obvious stuff, like someone saying, "The gas thefts are definitely a big deal, but the people are more important."

I tried finding an English language article that mentions the "Chalecos Amarillos" but no one seems to have written one yet.

CNN Now Triggered by Sexist Dog Whistle "Salads"

It's not sexist at all that unattractive women direct their hypercritical Female Gaze at men brainstorming for something to attack them over so they can score a little Sexual Vengeance over their declining attractiveness.

Google Plans to Embed 1000 Reporters in Local Newsrooms

—Ace of Spades

Yayyy.

CJR'S MOST RECENT print edition focused on local news, the backbone of an industry suffering from the steady shift of advertising dollars away from print, leaving newsrooms in crisis--bleeding staff, scaling back coverage, and grasping for solutions. A project announced yesterday at the Google News Lab Summit hopes to help address those concerns.

Report for America, an initiative of the GroundTruthProject, Google, and others, plans to place 1,000 journalists in local newsrooms over the next five years. Writing in CJR, the project's co-founders argue that America needs "a dramatically new approach at the local level--grounded less in the traditional commercial model and more on a reawakened spirit of public service among reporters."

...

As the program begins placing reporters, it will be important to ensure that the journalists chosen represent a diverse cohort, both racially and socioeconomically, that underserved areas which may not have an active local donor base are not overlooked, and that young journalists who participate receive not just initial training but support throughout their employment.

Google will now be arranging for the payment of its own cadre of "journalists" embedded in local news stations across America.

I wonder if the media will become even more pro-Google than they are now.

Oh well, it doesn't matter -- #MuhPrivateBusinessDecision and all that!

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

Remember Iran? The country that ORANGE MAN BAD was so mean to? The country to which our wonderful, perfectly-creased pants former president sent lots of money and relaxed sanctions and tried like hell to welcome them back into polite society, because after all, they love peace and America and apple pie and have no malign intent when it comes to Israel!

Yeah...that Iran. Scoping out political opponents and surveilling Jewish organizations is what all of our friends around the world do!

Is Tehran spying on Southern California? Feds say O.C. waiter and 'Chubby' from Long Beach were agents of Iran

The men’s goal, authorities say, was to conduct surveillance on Israeli and Jewish facilities in the U.S., and to collect information on members of the Mujahedin Khalq, MEK, an Iranian exile group that has long sought to topple the regime in Tehran and enjoys newfound support among members of the Trump administration.

Within the span of a year — from the summer of 2017 to the spring of 2018 — authorities say the men crisscrossed Orange County and the United States, videotaping participants at MEK rallies in New York and Washington, D.C., and photographing Jewish centers in Chicago.

Iran is the world's foremost purveyor of terrorism, so the discovery of two of their agents doing advance work for what is obviously terrorist action is both unsurprising and chilling. Luckily we have an adult in the White House, and he takes this stuff seriously. White House Sought Options to Strike Iran after those mortar attacks in Baghdad last year. And that is as it should be. An attack on an American embassy or installation is an attack on America, and should be met with resolve.

And tighten up the damned border! I don't know, maybe a wall, and heightened screening of Iranians (entering and already here), and sharks with frikin' laser beams attached to their heads!

The Morning Report - 1/15/19

—J.J. Sefton

whipri.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and for the first time in a long time we have the Mueller witch hunt/inquisition up front, since it appears that at long last the late Whitey Bulger's long-time confederate might be issuing his final report, which will reveal absolutely nothing of any consequence. That said, this entire thing was concocted both to smear and drag down President Trump to force him to either resign or pave the way for his removal from office, and at least as significant if not more so, as a gigantic coverup for the greatest political crime and abuse of power in American history. The intelligence and law enforcement communities at the behest of or with the approval of the previous administration up to and including the ex-president himself and former secretary of state abused their power as a means to sabotage the candidacy of Donald Trump (and probably any other contender in the 2016 GOP field) and failing that to sabotage his presidency.

Honestly, I have written that last paragraph in one form or another, with only slight variations of the wording, for almost two years and I'm sick to death of it. Mostly sick because of its implications and of the stark reality that anyone with two eyes to see and at least two brain cells to rub together it clearly demonstrates regarding the rule of law and the shattering of trust in people and institutions we blindly held in them. Rush Limbaugh yesterday lamented that all of this, despite the revelations that there is no there there and that there never has been, cost the GOP the House in the midterms and dupe an alarmingly large number of Americans into thinking that Russia, either with the willing help of Trump or because Trump was a blithering idiot, stole the 2016 election.

I'm slightly more optimistic than Rush about this. We have a lot to be thankful for with this President. And one of the things is by his mere presence exposing all of this to more and more people whose opinion of the media along with much of Congress is at an all time low, while Trump's approval runs high; probably much higher than the polling numbers indicate since those outfits are part and parcel by and large of the Democrat-Media Complex. While I agree that a lie is halfway around the world before the truth gets its pants on, ultimately the truth will out. What happens after that is anyone's guess. I accepted a long time ago that Obama, Clinton, Comey, Brennan, Holder and all the rest are never going to face real justice. But I guess I have to be content with at least the election of Trump throwing a giant monkey wrench into the socialist-globalist enterprise. And Brexit (such as it is/was), the Yellow Vest movement, Eastern Europe's rejection of the EU and a resurgent anti-Marxist movement in South America are positive signs as well.

The government shutdown over Democrat refusal to fund border security and the border wall continues. Along with a good piece by Daniel Horowitz dovetailing nicely with Ace's post yesterday evening about a shutdown being good for Americans, we have investigative journalist (I refuse to call her "far-right-wing" or "extremist") Laura Loomer led a group of illegal aliens, believe it or not, over the wall of Nancy Palsi's palatial estate to prove a point and illustrate the latter's hypocrisy, even Obama's former ICE chief points out the dangers of MS-13 having nothing between them and us, and the new Dem head of the House Homeland Security committee sez there will be no bill to abolish ICE.

To politics in general where with all the absolute hideous rhetoric from the leadership of the political left about "whiteness" and "white privilege" and "white racism" the GOP in its infinite wisdom is throwing Steve King under the bus for trying to point out the hypocrisy of the left by asking what's bad about the terms white nationalist and white supremacist. I think I know what he was trying to do and maybe it came off as a bit ham-fisted, but the way he is being treated - now stripped of committee assignments by Kevin McCarthy - is disgusting. The Democrat Party openly embraces actual anti-semites, anti-Christians, bigots, racialists and other brazen hate mongers (see just the link about Rancida T-Labia for starters). And for the sin of trying to point it out, perhaps in a clumsy way (and I would not even go that far), Steve King is to be otherized. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that Steve King is one of the highest rated real conservatives still extant in the GOP.

Elsewhere, Trump serves up good eats for college football champs and gets roasted, Georgia Democrats refuse to recognize they couldn't steal the governorship fair and square, lock up your daughters - Bernardo Sandersnista is staffing up for 2020, Al Sharptone (not a racist or Joo-Hater at all) wants the 2020 Dems to kiss his manhole cover (phrasing!) medallion before he endorses anyone, a cautious look at polling and Conrad Black with some advice for PDT.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: in defense of Steve King, media pimps click-bait about Rand Paul's going to Canada for an operation, good news about courts upholding religious freedom, the San Diego TV station accuses the AP of fake news over CNN not airing their pro-wall views, Jeffrey Lord on the attempt to silence Tu-Ca, Twitter acts as Pakistan's sharia police, Christian Toto on Facebook's censoring of a Roe v. Wade flick, and the Media's ultimate failure in pimping the Russia collusion hoax.

Guns: Daniel Greenfield exposes a real POS Chicago Alderman who fancies himself as the next Nano-Nanny Bloomberg.

Foreign Desk: Mike Pompeo confabs with the Saudis on a wide range of issues, Maduro calls Bolsonaro literally Hitler, a look at Bolsonaro's market reforms in Brazil, Chi-Com dystopia and Michael Ledeen tries reading the Iranian tea leaves and laments that our intel can't.

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Durham, NC still hates Joo-cooties, Malaysia really hates Joo-cooties, and Phyllis Chesler on the brave Saudi teen who rejected the space-rock-pedophile-death-cult and now will forever have a target on her back.

Domestic Affairs: SCOTUS rejects a challenge to Trump's Acting AG ahead of the Barr hearings, the Fake Frog and the Deep State, Minnesota union has to pay back dues to a police employee, the Michigan Housing Authority ends a quota system and an unpleasant look at prison rape-rape in light of the whole criminal justice reform thing.

The Economy: Yay, gridlock!, the wages of secularism and a good follow on piece to the alarming news of the decline of the white birth rate (is that racist?) vis a vis the cost of having kids is too damn high, and what it means societally.

Church Sex Abuse Scandal: Whistleblower calls on McCarrick to repent.

Healthcare: Obama-appointed hack-in-black flips the bird to Trump and sez birth control is a human right that the taxpayer must fund, and this opioid epidemic is for real.

Red-Greens: Paul Krugman loves him that Ocasio-TacoRosado "green new deal."

Hither and Yon: The Gosnell movie is a smash on Amazon even before the DVD is released, on the death of community in America (hint: the decline of churches), and finally Angelo Codevilla on the corruption of the church for political ends. Something about taking a time-honored institution, killing it, gutting it, wearing the carcass as a skin suit and demanding respect?

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

That’s the type of prioritization we have to make if we are going to succeed in rescuing our country from this existential threat. Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA)

Gillette: You're Racists and You're Also Rapists. That's Why You Need Our Razors.

—Ace of Spades

Gillette, like many other companies selling products and entertainments to men, settles on an "Insult and Alienate Our Core Customers" strategy.



cotton.jpg

Gillette, the razor company owned by Procter & Gamble has released a new ad (they call it a "short film") offering a politicized take on bullying and #MeToo. The ad is titled "We Believe: The Best Men Can Be" and the theme is simply that men have been a problem for far too long and it’s time to put an end to "toxic masculinity." The ad features some real video from social media but most of it is composed of scenes intended to evoke bullying on social media, sexual harassment in entertainment, and downplaying of women in corporate boardrooms.

Sexton quotes the Wall Street Journal's article about this:

"This is an important conversation happening, and as a company that encourages men to be their best, we feel compelled to both address it and take action of our own," said Pankaj Bhalla, Gillette brand director for North America in an emailed statement. "We are taking a realistic look at what’s happening today, and aiming to inspire change by acknowledging that the old saying 'Boys Will Be Boys' is not an excuse. We want to hold ourselves to a higher standard, and hope all the men we serve will come along on that journey to find our 'best' together."

Tim Pool talks about this a lot -- Millennial progressives have infested advertising (why wouldn't they?) and all they keep telling companies is "Young people want everything suuuuuper-politicized and #Woke 24/7."

That's not true, but they're very stupid and they think that what they themselves want are what non-blue-haired, non-nose-ringed, non-tribal-tatooed, non-problem-spectacled America wants.

This is how they virtue signal and increase their social standing -- by crowing to their friends they convinced an apolitical widget company to turn its $50 million advertising operation into #Woke political messaging.

They will not learn unless you rub their noses in their own messes, as you would with a puppy that pees on the carpet.

And it's time to boycott every one of these politicized shithole companies, starting with the Garbage Tier Discount Fish Vendor Red Lobster.

The only way to end this is to vote viciously with your dollars until they finally learn, once and for all that Get Woke means, unavoidably, Go Broke.

FBI's Pretext for Opening an Investigation Into Trump? The Theory (Quite Possibly Championed by James Comey) That Putin Called Trump to Tell Him "Fire That Son-of-a-Bitch Patriot and Righteous Beacon James Comey!!!"

—Ace of Spades

Unbelievable. The top echelons of the FBI, which themselves were threatened with the kompromat that they had engaged previously in illegal operations against a presidential candidate, decided that they had to investigated a Putin-Trump connection on the theory that James Comey was such a righteous warrior for America that Putin himself directed Donald Trump to fire him.

Hey -- you don't know for certain that it didn't happen that way until you investigate, riiiiight?

Can't wait to hear about the results for the similar investigation into Obama for saying on a hot mic that he would deal more generously with Russia after the election, when he had "more flexibility."

In the chaotic aftermath at the FBI following Director James Comey's firing, a half-dozen senior FBI officials huddled to set in motion the momentous move to open an investigation into President Donald Trump that included trying to understand why he was acting in ways that seemed to benefit Russia.

They debated a range of possibilities, according to portions of transcripts of two FBI officials' closed-door congressional interviews obtained by CNN. On one end was the idea that Trump fired Comey at the behest of Russia. On the other was the possibility that Trump didn't have an improper relationship with the Kremlin and was acting within the bounds of his executive authority, the transcripts show.

James Baker, then-FBI general counsel, said the FBI officials were contemplating with regard to Russia whether Trump was "acting at the behest of and somehow following directions, somehow executing their will."

"That was one extreme. The other extreme is that the President is completely innocent, and we discussed that too," Baker told House investigators last year. "There's a range of things this could possibly be. We need to investigate, because we don't know whether, you know, the worst-case scenario is possibly true or the President is totally innocent and we need to get this thing over with -- and so he can move forward with his agenda."

Following Comey's firing, the FBI opened a probe into Trump for possible obstruction of justice, as CNN has previously reported. Part of the impetus for the investigation, the New York Times first reported Friday, was whether Trump's actions seemed to benefit Russia.

...

Republicans view the officials' comments as evidence that top officials at the FBI were planning all along to investigate Trump and that the probe wasn't sparked by the Comey firing, according to a Republican source with knowledge of the interviews.

While the FBI launched its investigation in the days after Comey's abrupt dismissal, the bureau had previously contemplated such a step, according to testimony from former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent who was dismissed from Mueller's team and later fired over anti-Trump text messages, texted Page in the hours after Comey's firing and said: "We need to open the case we've been waiting on now while Andy is acting," a reference to then-acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Page was pressed on the meaning of the message in her interview with congressional investigators, and she confirmed that the text was related to the Russia investigation into potential collusion.

Page told lawmakers the decision to open the case was not about "who was occupying the director's chair," according to a source. While FBI lawyers limited her answers about the text, she said the text wasn't suggesting that the case couldn't be opened with Comey as director.

I wonder why the investigation could only be opened with "Andy" sitting, temporarily, in the Big Boy Chair.

Repeatedly Asked to Condemn Louis Farrakhan's Antisemitism, Tamika Mallory Repeatedly Refuses to Do So

—Ace of Spades

I think it's very telling that all the actual denouncements of anti-semitism were provided by Mallory's co-grifter Bob Bland. Bland offered the (rote) condemnations of anti-semitism as Mallory remained silent about the issue.

It's almost as if Mallory told them, "I will not recant THE TRUTH that the Jews are our persecutors," so they sent along Bland to offer that recantation while Mallory talked around the question.

When pressed by Meghan McCain, Mallory offers up the non-sequitor "I should not be judged through any man's eyes" which makes no sense because if anyone's judging, it's the obviously female Meghan McCain, and besides, she's not actually being judged, she's being asked whether or not Jews Are The Devil.

And she's keeps on refusing to say "No."
