32 People Shot In Chicago Over MLK Weekend

“So what’s happening, and this is ironic, is that a movement with the goal of saving black lives at this point is getting black lives taken, because 80 percent of our murder victims here in Chicago are male blacks,” McCarthy continued.

Trump May Pick a Prominent Global Warming Skeptic as His Science Czar

16th January 2017

Read it.

That would be … entertaining.

President-elect Donald Trump met with a Princeton University physicist and skeptic of man-made global warming who observers believe could be the next White House science czar.

Trump met with Dr. Will Happer in New York City Friday. Happer didn’t take any questions entering or leaving Trump Tower last week, so it’s hard to say what the meetings were about. Trump has yet to fill key energy and science roles in his administration.

He’s from Princeton, so his Crustian credentials are impeccable. Trump is a judo-master with Leftist brain-space.

The Perils of Political Correctness

16th January 2017

Shelby Steele turns over a rock.

One of the points that I feel very strongly about, coming as a black [man], is that the deference that America has shown us since the ’60s with the War on Poverty and the Great Society and welfare, these deferential policies that defer to our history of victimization now victimize us more than racism did. I grew up in segregation. I know exactly what it’s like. And I had a more positive attitude toward America than many blacks do today who are the beneficiaries of Affirmative Action. I think that deference has become a very corrupting influence on the people that it tries to help. It’s honorable that it wants to help these people but they never ask the people to be responsible for their own transformation and uplift and that’s the great tragedy of deference and political correctness.

As is traditional, if you didn’t know that he claimed to be black you wouldn’t ever know it; certainly not by looking at him.

Intersectional Feminist Catfights Turn Me On

16th January 2017

Jim Goad clues us in.

“Intersectionality,” which I’ve previously referred to as “Cannibalism Among The Oppressed,” refers to the highly amusing tendency of leftist identity politics to devolve into petty pissing matches about whose group has had a shittier, more miserable history. In case you didn’t realize, the more of a historical loser you are, the more advanced and noble you are as a human being. When it comes to shuffling the Progressive Stack, straight white Christian males go to the bottom of the deck by default. But if you just happen to be a one-armed HIV+ obese transgender black lesbian with multiple personality disorder, you might as well be the second coming of Gandhi.

To their befuddlement, white feminists are waking up to the fact that they are being herded to the back of the progressive bus due to their shamefully inescapable whiteness.

Kristol-nicht

16th January 2017

Read it.

There is probably not one issue that Bill Kristol and John Lewis agree on. Lewis is a partisan lefty who may be more of a dedicated Communist than Vladimir Putin.

Several years ago Lewis accused Tea Party protesters of spitting on him and calling him the “N-word” during a political stunt – the walk to the Capitol to vote for ObamaCare. There were cameras everywhere. The late Andrew Breitbart initially offered $10,000 to anyone who could prove it happened. There were no takers even when Breitbart upped the reward to $100,000. The reason Breitbart never payed out a dime is that John Lewis is a liar who’s reputation was built (and peaked) during the Civil Rights marches of the 1960’s.

And then there’s this reality, that while John Lewis may be a Civil Rights Icon™, Vladimir Putin is the head of a nation of 143 million with an estimated 7,000 nuclear weapons. And if Bill Kristol doesn’t respect that then who really has the problem?

Geographic mobility–the movement of people from place to place in response to changing job trends–had declined in the United States, which in turn contributes to the reduction in economic mobility. David Schleicher, a Yale University associate law professor, has written a paper arguing that this reduction is due to government regulations, including land-use regulations that make it expensive to move and occupational licensing that makes it expensive to enter new markets.

WaPo: “Trump Could Cause ‘The Death of Think Tanks as We Know Them’”

16th January 2017

Steve Sailer turns over a rock.

Much of the outrage over Trump is from the few thousands of people in the Republican and Democratic establishments who had good cause to hope back in 2015 that their resumes and thus net worths would be permanently burnished by spending a couple of years in a Hillary or Jeb White House, thus upping their market value to private industry.

Don’t think of it as selling out; think of it as buying in.

The iconic American spectacle was felled by a variety of factors, company executives say. Declining attendance combined with high operating costs, along with changing public tastes and prolonged battles with animal rights groups all contributed to its demise.

What Will Happen To Health Insurance In 2017? Doctors Say Repeal Obamacare, But Don’t Replace It

14th January 2017

Read it.

Stefan Hagopian, a doctor in Santa Monica, California, received an email from his healthcare insurance company on Nov. 8 saying his plan would be canceled on the first day of 2017. He had been one of millions of Americans whose coverage failed to qualify under the mandates insurance companies had to abide by under the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare.

Hagopian hopes to see Obamacare repealed entirely because of its requirement that all Americans obtain health insurance or pay a fine. He said the healthcare law benefitted insurance companies more than U.S. citizens and doctors.

Diversity and Reality

13th January 2017

Read it.

In the movie The Godfather, there’s a scene where Don Corleone is giving Michael some advice about life. He says, “I spent my whole life trying not to be careless. Women and children can afford to be careless, but not men.” It’s a great line and it was true for most of human existence. The role of males in society has always exposed them to the greater risk. That and male competition has often been for keeps. When the stakes are high the room for error is smaller so men have always had to be the less reckless of the sexes.

We live in a soft age where women run most things so that means we live in a careless age as well. All sorts of silly and ridiculous things are indulged because the margin for error seems endless. You can make up a bunch of silly diversity rules, for example, on the college campus, because little serious work is done on the college campus. Most of what is done is busy work. In the areas where serious work is done, like the hard sciences, you see very little of the PC nonsense we associate with the academy.

The Enduring Whiteness of the American Media

The Guardian is the iconic left-wing publication in the U.K., honestly partisan in a way that its counterparts in the U.S. (New York Times, Washington Post) avoid.

This article is a good example of the constant obsession with race that has occupied the Left since the 1970s; ‘progressives’ find racism everywhere, much the way that Jonathan Edwards found sin.

Technology Is Changing How We Live, But It Needs to Change How We Work

13th January 2017

Ezra Klein has some some shrewd observations.

When a grave-faced announcer on CNBC says “technology stocks are down today,” we all know he means Facebook and Apple, not Boeing and Pfizer. To Thiel, this signals a deeper problem in the American economy, a shrinkage in our belief of what’s possible, a pessimism about what is really likely to get better. Our definition of what technology is has narrowed, and he thinks that narrowing is no accident. It’s a coping mechanism in an age of technological disappointment.

“Technology gets defined as ‘that which is changing fast,'” he says. “If the other things are not defined as ‘technology,’ we filter them out and we don’t even look at them.”

“We were promised flying cars; we got 140 characters,” he likes to say.

‘Not This White Woman’ Clothing Line Launched for Women to Show They Didn’t Vote for Donald Trump

13th January 2017

Read it.

Two women have created a line of clothing and accessories to rally home the message that they were not included in the 53 per cent of white women who voted for Donald Trump.

“We found ourselves wanting to tell people on the street, strangers on the subway, ‘it wasn’t me’,” they wrote on their website. “When visiting the Subway Therapy  Wall in New York City, Michelle added a sticky note that said, ‘not this white woman’. Karen and Michelle commiserated and collaborated and the idea of a t-shirt was born.”

The Left: It’s All About Race and Signalling.

“It’s hard to see how this really helps anyone or anything other than the conscience of the white women buying this sh*t. I’ll tell you, as a black woman, seeing that shirt doesn’t necessarily tell me you’re an ally or worth trusting any more than the sanely-dressed white woman next to you. It doesn’t tell me you understand intersectional feminism, All it says is you want people to know you’re not a complete asshole. The irony is, this shirt kinda does make you look like an asshole,” writer Kara Brown wrote.

I agree, although not for the same reason.

How the ‘Humanitarian’ Crisis in the NHS Is Paving the Way for Private Healthcare

It has been a calamitous winter inside the NHS. Last week, three people tragically died at Worcestershire Royal hospital with a women dying of a heart attack after waiting for 35 hours on a trolley. A similar picture has developed across the country with patients on trolleys due to lack of beds, many hospital trusts on red alert and ambulances missing targets for life-threatening emergencies. The British Red Cross declared a humanitarian crisis in the NHS.

How about that government-provided healthcare! Don’t you wish we had a system like that in America?

Defense Officials Approve Expanded Veterans Online Shopping Benefit

Honorably discharged veterans could be able to shop online at military exchange websites as early as Veterans Day, barring any objections from Congress.

A defense official confirmed a letter announcing the change was signed Wednesday by Peter Levine, acting undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness. Copies were sent to lawmakers on four House and Senate committees, and if no objections are raised within 30 days, officials with Army and Air Force Exchange Service and Navy Exchange Service Command expect to be able to implement the new benefit by mid-November.

Exchanges sell items at a discount, without a sales tax, and any profits after operating costs are either returned to the services’ morale, welfare and recreation programs, or used for construction and other improvements to stores.

Globalization’s Winner-Take-All Economy

13th January 2017

Read it.

“If you are a very talented person, you have a choice: You either go to New York or you go to Silicon Valley.”

This statement by Peter Thiel, the PayPal founder and venture capitalist, unsurprisingly caused a stir, given that he made it in Chicago. Simon Kuper had made a similar observation in the Financial Times when he described how young Dutch up-and-comers had their sights set on London, not Amsterdam. “Many ambitious Dutch people no longer want to join the Dutch elite,” Kuper wrote. “They want to join the global elite.”

This same attitude is leading to the drain of young people out of the small towns of the heartland into the big cities, often those on the coast. Anyone with an ounce of talent or ambition heads for the city.

Reason #5 Most Americans Don’t Ride Transit: Our Cities Aren’t Built for It

13th January 2017

Read it.

Housing, jobs, and other destinations are so diffused throughout American urban areas that they don’t generate the large numbers of people moving from one point to another that mass transit systems need to work.

Urban and transit evolution parted ways in 1913, when Henry Ford built the first moving assembly line to make his Model Ts. Cheap cars were an obvious threat to transit, but a bigger threat was less visible: unlike steam-powered, belt-driven factories, moving assembly lines required lots of land, so factories moved to the suburbs. When the suburbs refused to be annexed to the cities, monocentric cities became polycentric urban areas.

At least through the 1970s, urban planners and central city officials pretended their cities were still monocentric, and they wrote numerous downtown plans, urban renewal plans, transit plans, commuter-tax plans, and other plans designed to maintain the preeminence of downtown. The construction of the San Francisco BART and Washington Metro systems were among these plans, but were as doomed to fail as all the others.

Federal Judge Denounces EPA As Rogue Agency

13th January 2017

Read it.

In 2014, Murray Energy Corporation and several of its affiliates sued EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, alleging that the EPA was in violation of 42 U.S.C. § 7621, § 321(a) of the Clean Air Act, which requires the agency to “conduct continuing evaluations of potential loss or shifts of employment which may result from the administration or enforcement of the provision of [the Clean Air Act] and applicable implementation plans, including where appropriate, investigating threatened plant closures or reductions in employment allegedly resulting from such administration or enforcement.”

The case is venued in West Virginia, and U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey presides. In 2016, the parties filed cross motions for summary judgment. On October 17, 2016, Judge Bailey denied the government’s motion and granted Murray Energy Corporation’s motion. This means that Murray won the case.

Reason #4 Most American’s Don’t Ride Transit: Lack of Privacy and Security

12th January 2017

Read it.

Crime, sexual harassment, and other invasions of privacy are common on metro systems throughout the world. Sexual harassment is especially bad on Tokyo subways, and a survey of 600 women transit riders in Paris found that 100 percent of them reported having been sexually harassed.

Such harassment often depends on the anonymity that comes with extreme crowding, but most American transit systems don’t get that crowded precisely because Americans won’t accept the invasions of personal space required for such crush conditions. Still, there are numerous complaints of sexual harassment on the New York City subway. Crime is rapidly rising on the DC Metro as well.

Crime, including thefts of smart phones, as well as violent crime, can be a big problem on light rail, partly because there is rarely anyone aboard to keep vehicles secure. Bus drivers presumably provide a modest deterrent to crime, but still there is the problem of bus-stop crime.

A 42-year-old Dutch woman recently had her Swiss citizenship application rejected because of her “annoying” lifestyle.

“If someone is so much in  the spotlight and rebels against things that are accepted in the local community, it can cause the community to not want such a person in their midst,” Treier told The Local.

Q: How can you tell a vegan?
A: You don’t. They tell you.

Booker Breaks With Precedent to Testify Against Sessions – and Earns Republican Rebuke

12th January 2017

Read it.

Senators who have some complaint to make about a nominee have all the time in the world when the nominee is discussed before the vote to make their complaints public, so what is the point of ‘testifying’ at the confirmation hearing?

That’s obvious: He’s auditioning to be the next Magic Negro.

Like Obama he passes the paper-bag-and-ruler test, and ‘talks like a white boy‘, so he’s not too black to be electable, but he’s kept a low profile up until now (including working amicably with Sessions in the Senate) and so he’s got to start the Virtue Signalling process to get the Trump Derangement Syndrome celebutards behind him, money-wise, as well as the Crustian rich white liberals from his own party.

This surprises me, because I had assumed that the next Magic Negro would be Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, but Patrick looks more black than Booker and is raking it in at Mitt Romney’s old firm, Bain Capital, so perhaps he’s only runner-up.
