The Trump Hack of Notre Dem

16th December 2016

Mark Steyn lays it out.

After a brief trip out of the country, I return to find America’s elites playing some sort of Chinese Whispers drinking game with a vat of anti-freeze. Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, has doubled down on his accusation that Donald Trump was in on Putin’s “hacking” of the election.

In fact, the only presidential nominee who knew of it was Barack Obama, who had it brought to his attention over a year ago, back when the experts were assuring us that Trump wouldn’t make it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Obama kept the news of Putin’s alleged hacking to himself. So Mr Earnest is now accusing Trump of doing exactly as his boss did. Except that (take another slug of anti-freeze) Earnest’s evidence that Trump was in on the shadowy “conspiracy” is that a few months back Trump publicly invited Putin to release Hillary’s unseen emails. So Trump and Putin’s secret plan to subvert American democracy was so sophisticated they announced it to the world. That’s how cunning they are. We’re gonna need more anti-freeze.

The Left’s Russia Hysteria Is Undermining American Democracy

16th December 2016

Read it.

RESIST!

That one word has become the favorite slogan of leftists following Donald Trump’s electoral victory, and it has only increased in usage since The Washington Post’s Friday report on CIA claims the Russian hacked emails to help the current president-elect win.

Odd that, during the years when Communism was the Flavor of the Month and the Soviet Union actually represented an existential threat to America, nobody on the American Left thought The Russian Threat was anything more than a fantasy — yet now, when Russia may be an enemy state but certainly isn’t trying to take over America any more, it’s a Big Deal. I wish they would make up their minds.

Of course, the only thing the ‘Russian hack’ did was allow us to peer into the fetid swamp that was the Hillary campaign; that affected the election to the extent that it allowed people to peer behind the curtain at the sausage being made, and for that, if the ‘Russians’ had anything to do with it, they deserve our thanks. But, of course, when it’s the Democrat ox being gored, it’s more important to punish the whistleblower than to fix the problem thus revealed. Edward Snowden, take note.

Liberal Celebrity Videos Failed to Stop Donald Trump, But Trump’s Victory Has Failed to Stop Liberal Celebrity Videos

The 2016 presidential election featured no shortage of celebrity-studded viral videos, including Joss Whedon’s overwrought haranguing of third party voters, the cast of The Avengers getting all sincere, and Lena Dunham pulling her pants off in solidarity with Hillary Clinton.

Just because that strategy failed miserably in stopping the election of Donald Trump hasn’t prevented a rag-tag group of performers (including alumni of The West Wing, M*A*S*H*, and 1990s pop electronica) from making one last attempt at a viral video directed at the 538 Electoral College electors.

Lefty whiners have got to be the sorest losers on the planet.

Daily Beast Columnist Declares 2016 Presidential Outcome ‘a Hoax’

13th December 2016

Read it.

It’s been more than a month since the November 8 election, and liberals are still struggling to find a way to make Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton the winner of this year’s presidential contest.

One of those advocating the (s)election of the former secretary of state is Alan Gilbert — the John Evans Professor at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies in the University of Denver – who declared on Sunday: “In any other country, the U.S. State Department would declare the presidential election results a hoax: Clinton won initial exit polls — usually dead accurate — in four swing states.”

I suggest a new ter: Reality Denier — for those who JUST CAN’T BELIEVE THAT HILLARY LOST.

Fake News’ Boring Cousin: Lame News

12th December 2016

Steve Sailer gives us a peek behind the curtain.

We need some new conceptual categories to complement Fake News, such as Lame News: articles that have been intentionally hamstrung to avoid triggering Social Justice Warriors. Here’s a factually correct and somewhat informative New York Times article about a hippie town in British Columbia.

But the first thing that has been cut out of the article is any direct mention that this is another example of Leftwing White Flight. You and I are familiar with the concept (e.g., Portland, OR and Portland, ME), and thus we can notice that almost everybody in the article fleeing to remote Nelson is white. But most poor dumb NYT readers are clueless that there is such a Thing as Leftwing White Flight and this article isn’t going to bring up a conceptual category that would make them uncomfortable.

Second, why are all these nice white people unable to afford to live in Vancouver anymore? Well, you know and I know it’s because of Canada’s massive legal immigration levels causing Asian immigrants’ demand for housing in Vancouver to drive prices through the roof: the Law of Supply and Demand applies to immigration-related realities, just as it applies to everything else. But if you do a text search for “MIGR” you won’t see any words like “immigration” or “migrants” in the article.

Worse than ‘fake news’ is purported ‘news’ that doesn’t tell you what’s actually going on.

The glut of “fake news” filling the web doesn’t make it any easier. America’s insatiable appetite for quick headlines and prior-confirming news feeds has made it all but impossible to identity that pesky thing we like to call “truth.”

This is especially so when it comes to the progressive penchant for histrionics.

Take a recent Huffington Post confessional for instance. “How I Ended Up in a Psych Ward on Election Night,” written by 38-year-old science journalist and Hillary superfan Benjamin Ryan, details how political fandom can go awry. Ryan, who looks so insanely metro even gays would call him a faggot, actually experienced suicidal thoughts on Election Day when his queen was felled by the gruff man’s-man Donald Trump.

NYT: “Confronting Racist Objects”

12th December 2016

Steve Sailer reads the New York Times so you don’t have to.

It’s psychologically stressful being a Good Person these days: there’s Fake News, there are all the Muslim girls and NFL players being attacking by roving mobs of Trump voters, the Kremlin is sending secret messages to your Republican uncle that he must receive via his dental fillings the way he keeps coming up with wisecracks when you try to talk to him about how evil he is …

And then there’s the constant menace of Racist Objects.

Makes you wonder sometimes how the people who write for the Times manage to get through the day without committing suicide. Just hatred of normal people, I guess.

We Are All Nazis Now!

11th December 2016

Read it.

The Reductio ad Hitlerum (see also Godwin’s Law) has been a standard tactic of argumentation by left-leaning folks for a number of decades. Ever since the presidency of George W. Bush — and perhaps going all the way back to Ronald Reagan — it has been the primary method of dealing with any opinions even slightly to the right of those held by the people who employ it.

With the election of Donald Trump, the lefties are falling all over themselves to validate Godwin’s Law whenever they possibly can. If Nigel Farage was the Political Figure Most Often Depicted as a Nazi in 2016, surely Mr. Trump will win that coveted prize for 2017.

Academic Absurdity of the Week: Real Chickenfeed Stuff

6th December 2016

“Intersectionality” is the post-modern identity politics term of art for conflating the car crash of competing victimization categories. I think. Because in addition to oppressed women, minorities, and genderfluid people, it apparently also includes . . . chickens. Also cows.

You have to read the abstract to believe it. Sample sentence:

Such socio-spatial practices are the means through which men, women, chickens and cattle become privileged and/or othered within dominant gender–species hierarchical arrangements.

  • ‘We’ve never had anything like this’: Racist, threatening message left on door of black church
  • Donald Trump’s political mandate is historically small
  • House Democrats demand Chaffetz probe Trump’s finances
  • Trump’s ‘news’ source: Alien lizards, fluoride mind control and voter fraud
  • Why we can’t — and shouldn’t — ignore Donald Trump’s tweets
  • In one tweet, Trump trashes two constitutional amendments
  • Donald Trump and social media have weaponized the conspiracy theory in American politics
  • Trump just scored perhaps the biggest victory of his new tenure. But it comes with a huge asterisk
  • AP FACT CHECK: Trump won presidency but lost popular vote
  • Donald Trump is never going to change. Not ever.
  • Trump’s populism is about to face a rude awakening
  • Trump has already defeated the news media. And it’s unclear what we can do about it.

Reality Bites

1st December 2016

Gavin McInnes examines the Reality Denial Field that is the modern Left.

We are at war with a value system based on meaningless platitudes and conjecture. When you bring up data that contradicts their insane hypothesis they say, “I’m sorry—I just don’t—that sounds completely ludicrous to me,” as Million Student March organizer Keely Mullen did when Neil Cavuto asked her who was going to pay for her free-college utopia.

Play it through logically. Trump is going to deport legal immigrants? How? He’s going to imprison all his opponents? Who? He’s going to make it illegal to burn the flag? What? He’s going to repeal Roe v. Wade? When? He’s going to start a nuclear war? Where? He’s going to dissolve gay marriages? Why? Your belief system can’t make it past one question?

Here Are All The Hate Crime Hoaxes That Have Plagued The Country Since Trump’s Election

30th November 2016

Following Donald Trump’s stunning win in the election, a plague of hate crime hoaxes has been sweeping the country.

From California to Illinois to Louisiana, stories are cropping up of hate crimes perpetrated by Trump supporters that later prove to be fabricated by the so-called “victim” of the crime. Here is a roundup of the “hate crimes” identified as hoaxes so far, although there are other unsubstantiated stories that perhaps have not been identified as hoaxes because the perpetrator is more competent. (RELATED: Here’s A List Of Completely Substantiated Attacks On Trump Supporters)

It will be fascinating to read and view the mainstream media’s treatment of the dead dictator. I wonder to what extent the MSM, which wants to resist “normalizing” Donald Trump, will normalize the Cuban tyrant and his regime, as President Obama has done to some extent. I expect we will see at least a few stories in the “he did some good things; he did some bad things, but what a giant he was” mode.

They will praise him for doing things he didn’t do (but they wish he had) and ignore the things he did do (and they wish he hadn’t). The DemLegHump Media will sufficiently full of Fake News during this next month to choke a Facebook.

America’s Sociology Professors Are Really Steamed About the Cleveland Indians Logo, You Guys

21st November 2016

Read it.

The members of the American Sociological Association have decided to be very angry about the Cleveland Indians “Chief Wahoo” logo, and they have collectively written a letter to Major League Baseball commissioner Robert D. Manfred, Jr., telling Manfred just how angry they are.

Alert the media! Oh, wait, they already know … because the first thing one does in a situation like this is release the letter to the DemLegHump Media. You might even eventually get around to sending it to the nominal recipient, but that’s not required — he can read in in the news like everybody else.

“Academic research clearly demonstrates” that nicknames and logos honoring Native Americans “reflect and reinforce societal stereotypes,” “undermine” “accurate understandings of” Native Americans and “harm Native Americans” by “depressing their self-esteem,” Lamont claims. Also, she and other cloistered sociology professors are just sure that Native American team names “convey disrespect.”

Such letters as these certainly reflect and reinforce stereotypes about Professors of Sociology as a bunch of far-left tofu-heads. Perhaps they ought to be banned as well.

Everyone Needs to Stop Talking About ‘White People’

21st November 2016

Read it.

As fun as it is to watch those anti-Trump demos on which white people carry placards slagging off white people, and to read white columnists raging against white rage, and to see white women in the press tearing their hair out over white women who voted for Trump, it’s time to take down the modern left’s obsession with white people.

For following Trump’s shock ascendancy to the White House – another WHITE institution – it’s become clear what all this ‘white people’ talk really represents. It’s not a radical, post-racist attempt to expose where power lies in society and discuss how it might be challenged. On the contrary, it’s a racially charged, dehumanising expression of class contempt by well-connected white people, and some non-whites, for the wrong kind of white people: bad whites; unthinking whites; the dim or undeserving poor; or what used to be known, in times when vile elitism at least had the decency to be honest, as ‘the underclass’.

A Session on Jeff Sessions

The Democrats and their media adjunct played the race card over and over in the campaign that concluded with the election of Donald Trump on November 8. They aren’t about to give it a rest now. They have done a superb job of devaluing the charge. One might reasonably infer that the equal treatment of men without regard to race means nothing to them. Rather, they treat the issue of racism as a charge to be invoked purely for instrumental purposes.

The Facts About the Dakota Access Pipeline That Protesters Don’t Want You to Know

Congressman Kramer pulls the lid off.

From the outset of this process, Standing Rock Sioux leaders have refused to sit down and meet with either the Army Corps of Engineers or the pipeline company.

The Army Corps consulted with 55 Native American tribes at least 389 times, after which they proposed 140 variations of the route to avoid culturally sensitive areas in North Dakota. The logical time for Standing Rock tribal leaders to share their concerns would have been at these meetings, not now when construction is already near completion.

It begins with this sentence: “With Breitbart’s Steve Bannon now in a seat of White House power, Donald Trump will have a weapon no president has ever wielded.” Glenn Reynolds’ response on Instapundit is a classic:

Someone who works at Pravda-on-the-Internet and who consorts with those employed at Pravda-on-the-Hudson,Pravda-on-the-Potomac, and the various branches of Pravda-on-the-Airwaves should know better. As Wikileaks revealed, there really has been very little difference between most of the journalists who work for the mainstream press and the campaign staff hired by the Democratic National Committee. They even edit one another’s prose.

Press Already Unhappy with President-Elect Trump

President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday refused to let a group of journalists travel with him to cover his historic first meeting with President Barack Obama, breaking a long-standing practice intended to ensure the public has a watchful eye on the nation’s leader.

Trump flew from New York to Washington on his private jet without that “pool” of reporters, photographers and television cameras that have traveled with presidents and presidents-elect.

This is an encouraging sign. And it’s not as if he didn’t warn them.

Celebrity Meltdowns

Gavin McInnes weighs in.

What are all these celebrities still doing here? Didn’t they promise us they were gone if Trump won?

It’s been some low-hanging fruit watching celebrities react to this election, but low-hanging fruit is delicious. Lady Gaga asked that we “say a prayer America” and then blew Trump’s mind by standing outside one of his buildings with a sign that said “Love trumps hate.” This is a powerful message because Trump hates love. He was hoping that eventually he could wipe out all the love in America but Gaga was ensuring him that no matter how hard he tried, it would still be there. Where do these people get their views from—Dr. Seuss? He’s not the Lorax, Lady.

The Unbearable Smugness of the Press

10th November 2016

Read it.

This is all symptomatic of modern journalism’s great moral and intellectual failing: its unbearable smugness. Had Hillary Clinton won, there’s be a winking “we did it” feeling in the press, a sense that we were brave and called Trump a liar and saved the republic.

So much for that. The audience for our glib analysis and contempt for much of the electorate, it turned out, was rather limited. This was particularly true when it came to voters, the ones who turned out by the millions to deliver not only a rebuke to the political system but also the people who cover it. Trump knew what he was doing when he invited his crowds to jeer and hiss the reporters covering him. They hate us, and have for some time.

And can you blame them? Journalists love mocking Trump supporters. We insult their appearances. We dismiss them as racists and sexists. We emote on Twitter about how this or that comment or policy makes us feel one way or the other, and yet we reject their feelings as invalid.

Even CBS can smell the coffee.

Teacher At $47,000-PER-YEAR Manhattan High School Consoles Rich Kids About Trump Win

The day after Donald Trump’s presidential election win on Tuesday night, a teacher at a fancypants private high school in New York City penned an essay — datelined NEW YORK — to explain how he is helping the children of obscene wealth cope with “despair, anxiety or indignation” about the news.

The teacher is Jim Cullen. He presides over history classes at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School in New York — right across from Central Park. A single year of high school tuition at the elite bastion costs $47,000. (A year of kindergarten also costs $47,000.)

Donald Trump’s victory marks the death of liberalism

10th November 2016

Oh, if only.

On election day, I left my apartment on the east side of Manhattan, walked one block to my polling station, and got in line. A reporter from the neighbourhood paper was asking people who they were voting for and why. The woman ahead of me said she was voting for Clinton, both to stop Trump and because she wanted to see a woman finally break the glass ceiling. The little boy strapped to her chest kept waving at me over her shoulder. I waved back.  Well, instead of breaking a glass ceiling, we’ll be building a wall.

The view from the ‘east side of Manhattan’. Apparently it doesn’t matter that she’s a crook and a liar; all that matters is that she has female parts and isn’t Republican.

Krugman Freaks Out, Vows to Keep Fighting

9th November 2016

Read it.

There is much to savor this morning, including the hysteria that is sweeping across the Left. We see it in ways large and small. At one of our local colleges, a class was canceled because the professor was crying too hard to teach. “I don’t feel safe here,” she said. The storm troopers were due any minute, apparently.
