Quotation of the Day

9th December 2018

Scott Adams:

The President or somebody did something that wasn’t a crime but it was very close to one you could imagine could be illegal if things like that were illegal … but it feels like sorta close to something that if the situation were different and some of the variables were opposite such as if he was President or there was a quid-pro-quo….

Mueller’s Theory: Trump Defrauded Voters

9th December 2018

Paul Mirengoff of Powerline looks for the there, there.

“Prosecutors’ Narrative Is Clear: Trump Defrauded Voters.” So declares the first part of the headline of a New York Times article by Peter Baker and Nicholas Fandos. The rest of the headline asks “But What Does It Mean?”

Good question. It may mean that the prosecutors haven’t found a crime, but are still pissed off that Trump won the election.

Princeton Feminist Noa Wollstein Hates Men and ‘Heteronormative’ Kissing

8th December 2018

Read it.

Well, you know, Princeton — what do you expect from a place that would hire the likes of Paul Krugman?

This is why Ms. Wollstein’s parents are paying $62,750 a year (including room and board) to send her to Princeton, so that she can vent her anti-heterosexual hostility and prevent the performance of Disney songs on campus.

I doubt seriously that her parents are paying that. More likely she is getting some kind of financial aid and loans.

I suspect that in many such cases if the parents were paying full freight these kids would be an community college or in the military. And the parents are delighted, of course, that their daughter managed to get into Princeton; I doubt that she comes from a long line of Princetonians. She demonstrates the usual narcissism of someone who has come to the Other Left Coast from Flyover Country and is determined to Make It Big and enter the Establishment.

A Fisking We Will Go: ‘Congress Will Have to ‘Start Impeachment Proceedings’ Against Trump After Cohen Filing, Says Former Nixon White House Lawyer’

8th December 2018

Read it.

The ‘former Nixon White House lawyer’ in question is John Dean, famous teller of tall tales, but of course they can’t put that in the headline or everyone would say ‘oh, him’ and fail to read the article.

Evidence from Donald Trump’s former lawyer about Russian collusion with his presidential campaign team could lead to his impeachment, Richard Nixon’s former White House counsel has claimed.

Note the weasel-word ‘could’. As with ‘climate change’, this is how progs get around the fact that (a) there is no evidence (but there ‘could’ be!) that Trump is connected with any of Cohen’s shenanigans, or that (b) ‘collusion’ is not a crime, however much prog handwringing it triggers.

Mr Dean told CNN that the US Congress had enough evidence to impeach the US leader.

But that evidence isn’t cited or specified, of course. The point is to make the statement, not back it up. ‘See! See! John Dean says there’s enough evidence for impeachment, and he ought to know!’

What John Dean certainly knows is that CNN isn’t going to give him the publicity he craves if he says ‘No there there.’

Conformity Killed the Weekly Standard

6th December 2018

Read it.

The easiest way to sum up the failure of the Weekly Standard is this: Why would anyone on the right offer financial support to the Weekly Standard when CNN will call us a racist for free? And why would anyone on the left offer financial support to the Weekly Standardwhen CNN will call us a racist for free?

Sarcasm aside, that is the Weekly Standard’s primary problem. In the age of Trump, the publication offers nothing we cannot get everywhere else in the elite media, nothing we cannot find at the far-left Washington Post, MSNBC, New York Times, CNN, etc.

Smug virtue-signaling and superior Trump-bashing are the cheapest commodities in today’s news business. They are literally everywhere. And so, instead of offering a unique voice and perspective in an ocean of left-wing media, the Weekly Standard instead chose to sit in the middle of this ocean and sell saltwater.

They were living, breathing examples of the cuckitude with which ZMan has so much fun.

Sure, we all understand why the corrupt media found this “important voice” valuable: it allowed them to exploit the Weekly Standard and its contributors as a club against Trump from the right, and there is no species on earth the media find more useful than a narcissistic Republican bashing one of his own.

Regardless, the media’s ability to use the Weekly Standard as a propaganda weapon did not make the Weekly Standard more interesting to the everyday news and opinion consumer. In fact, the Weekly Standard became so predictable in its reactionary response to all things Trump (and his supporters), so predictable, it ceased to be interesting (a problem the Weekly Standard shares with last-place CNN).

Fortunately, we still have an economic system in which losers fail.

The Other McCain puts the boot in:

What’s the value-added of your journalistic product, as a conservative magazine, if your essential message is, “Liberals are right”? It is possible to dislike President Trump or to criticize his policies without joining Bill Kristol, Rick Wilson, Jonah Goldberg and Rich Lowry in the #NeverTrump chorus of sore losers whose basic argument is that the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for Trump were wrong to do so. According to the #NeverTrump chorus, because their favorite candidates did not win the GOP nomination, therefore Hillary Clinton should be president. They have devoted themselves to delegitimizing Trump’s presidency, and are we surprised that this message was so unpopular with conservatives that the Weekly Standard became a publication without a readership?

Ocasio-Cortez Sees Global Warming as a Way to Push ‘Social and Racial Justice’ Policies

5th December 2018

Read it.

Democratic Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York said the “Green New Deal” plan she supports would be used to achieve liberal “economic, social and racial justice” goals along with fighting global warming.

“[W]e can use the transition to 100 percent energy as the vehicle to truly deliver and establish economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said at a Tuesday panel discussion alongside Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and environmental activist Bill McKibben.

No details, of course, about just how that is going to happen. Cynical me, I suspect it will happen by getting people used to being bossed around by SJW bureaucrats. Even if that’s the plan, don’t expect them to explain that any time soon.

While light on details, proponents said the “Green New Deal” could create millions of jobs in renewable energy and address many “social justice” issues typically on Democrats’ radar.

Uh, just how is creating what are likely to be highly technical jobs in ‘renewable energy’ going to address ‘social justice’ issues? Fashionable victim groups are rightly famous for their lack of employable skills such that they have to get jobs based on skin color, native language, or sex rather than being able to compete in the normal way on talent. I smell a boondoggle aborning.

“We have injustices in this country. Those injustices are concentrated in frontline communities and indigenous, black and brown communities,” she said. “They’re the ones that experience the greatest depths of this injustice.”

Of course, were you to ask her to name some, she couldn’t do it. She’ll just wave her hands in the air and claim that everybody knows what they are.

There are times when ‘airhead’ is too kind a word to use.

For more than a century, this Establishment resided at the top of the American caste system. Now it is gone, and apparently people wish it weren’t.

Swastikas Are Appearing on Google Maps and People Have Taken Notice

1st December 2018

The Estrogen Post does what it does best, vix. vapors.

Swastikas have been in existence for thousands of years; a variation of the symbol became a ubiquitous feature of Nazi symbolism and an emblem of Aryan race identity, racism, and anti-Semitism. However, the symbol has far more positive messaging in many ancient religions from the cultures of Eurasia, standing for things like divinity and spirituality. Prior to the Nazis appropriating the symbol in the 1930s, it long meant “good luck” in the Western world.

It’s for this reason that Google Maps allowed users to search “points of interest” via the swastika icon. Google told HuffPost that the image seen on users’ Maps app is “not a swastika” but rather a “Buddhist symbol of worship.”

Well, yeah, it is a swastika, just one that rotates in the opposite direction from the one the Nazis used.

Despite their being used as religious icons, Google said that the symbols are being used incorrectly in some places.

I would be interesting in finding out what ‘Google’ (actually, the support people who made this statement) believes is an ‘incorrect use’.

It is an unfortunate fact that people have discovered that SJWs such as those who work for the Estrogen Post will wildly overreact whenever they encounter stuff they consider Politically Incorrect, and the more adolescent among us are beginning to amuse themselves by using such stuff to trigger entertaining reactions on the part of the overly sensitive. SJWs have demonstrated rather consistently that they don’t cope well with such behavior.

Racism in ‘Harper’s Magazine’

29th November 2018

Read it.

There’s a certain type of black public intellectual who is becoming increasingly common. A leftist identitarian, as it were, his constant subject is racism—namely, what he believes to be the ongoing systemic white oppression of blacks.

His justification for this belief, however, is quite facile. He references group differences (or inequalities) and the past slavery and other past mistreatments of blacks, as if these things by themselves suffice to prove his case. They don’t—not even close.

What is more, for all his indignation and high-toned words, in many instances, it’s plainly he himself who is the racist. What really bothers this hypocrite, his reasoning reveals, is not racial injustice, but lack of black dominance. He is motivated by envy, not righteousness. He wants power, not equality.

Is Nationalism Really the Future of Conservatism?

29th November 2018

Read it.

Nationalism is a hot topic right now on the American right. All of the pointy-headed conservatives are penning thoughtful essays on the subject, reflecting on why and how we should love our country. At first glance, this might seem like a strange controversy, since patriotic fervor has always been fairly fashionable among conservatives. It’s a burning issue now, though, because some hope to replace the semi-defunct body of thought that we used to call “conservatism” with an energetic and robust nationalism.

(a) There is no such thing as ‘conservatism’ as the author of this piece uses the term. There is no political platform that everyone who considers himself (or herself) ‘conservative’ agrees on and universally supports, ‘semi-defunct’ or not. So the ‘conservatism’ being discussed is a figment of the author’s imagination.

(b) There has never been anyone arguably described as ‘conservative’ who was not a ‘nationalist’ in some sense. But what sense ‘nationalism’ is a component of ‘conservatism’ is not discussed; the author just talks about ‘nationalism’ as if it were one unitary concept that everybody knows and agrees on.

(c) Nationalism in some form has always been a part of the past of ‘conservatism’, so it’s not difficult to imagine that it will serve some role in its future. But to label it ‘the future of conservatism’ suggests a simple-mindedness concerning which the author ought to feel some embarrassment, and maybe do a reality check with one of the ‘pointy-headed conservatives’ she disparages.

‘As a former member of an American cult, I know why so many white Christian women fervently support Trump’

27th November 2018

Read it.

Another #PsychicNewsNetwork ‘As an X I am automatically an expert on Y’ article from a Voice of the Crust.

Needless to say, the author’s knowledge of white Christian women and Trump supporters is of a comic-book level. But progs eat it up because of confirmation bias. And the author got paid — what’s not to like?

Like reading old articles in PRAVDA, it’s amusing.

Time to Quit Twitter?

27th November 2018

John Hinderaker of Powerline answers in the affirmative.

For me, the Twitter turning point came when the company denied that it shadow-bans conservatives. It then explained what it does do, which corresponds precisely to the definition of shadow-banning. Like other Silicon Valley tech giants, Twitter is run by people who think it is their job to help left-wing Democrats win elections. There is no reason why conservatives should support Twitter.

Or anyone else, for that matter. Those of us who avoided Twitter ab initio are now entitled to blow a raspberry and say ‘Ha! Told you so!’, which I now do.
