Harvard Instructor: Science March Was ‘Eerily Religious’

25th April 2017

Read it.

“Being ‘pro-science’ has become a bizarre cultural phenomenon in which liberals (and other members of the cultural elite) engage in public displays of self-reckoned intelligence as a kind of performance art, while demonstrating zero evidence to justify it,” Dr. Jeremy Faust, a clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School, wrote in Slate.

“There was an uncomfortable dronelike fealty to the concept — an oxymoronic faith that information presented and packaged to us as Science need not be further scrutinized before being smugly celebrated en masse,” Faust wrote. “That is not intellectually rigorous thought — instead, it’s another kind of religion, and it is perhaps as terrifying as the thing it is trying to fight.”

Perhaps because ‘progressivism’ is, fundamentally, a cult.

Why Record Numbers of Americans Are Renouncing Their Citizenship

24th April 2017

Read it.

Would you give up your citizenship in order to keep your bank account?

That’s a question few Americans would ever want to confront, yet many Americans living abroad are now having to answer.

A little-known tax law, known as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, has resulted in some foreign banks no longer serving Americans.

The law, signed in 2010 by President Barack Obama, was intended to make it harder for Americans to keep money overseas and out of the reach of the IRS. The primary target was rich Americans allegedly hiding money from tax collectors.

The Obama legacy — more hardship for Americans. He’s on a roll.

50 ‘Juveniles’ Swarm Public Train, Rob People on Board

24th April 2017

Read it.

Witnesses claim that approximately 40 to 60 juveniles swarmed the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station and circumvented the payment process by jumping over the fare gates. After arriving to the second-story platform, the thieves manually held open the doors to the train car while other miscreants flooded in, according to SFGATE.

The latest mass robbery is just one in a string of similar crimes on BART trains in recent weeks, though it appears none of the prior incidents were as organized as this one.

Democrats behaving badly.

Flat Affects and Alice Games

24th April 2017

Severian looks at education.

Since I’ve spent a lot of time in and around the Ed Biz, people often ask me if professors really believe their own bullshit.  The things they say are so outlandish — and their private behavior is so opposed to their public sentiments — that they must be lying, right?

I don’t think so.  At its higher levels, academia is pretty much a cult, and college is a kind of low rent mind control.  I’m pretty sure the big boys — the college presidents who pull down a million per — know it’s a scam; except for the Diversity clowns, everyone else is a true believer.

The first thing any cult does with a new recruit is to flatten, or at least narrow, their affect.  Your affect — the characteristic way you express emotion — is socially conditioned.  Altering that breaks your social conditioning, and since we all strive to fit in with our society, the recruit will quickly rebuild his affect in the cult-approved manner.  Here’s a good, quick description of how Scientology does it.  TR (training routine)-0 strives for an absolutely flat affect — first, recruits have to stare at each other, unmoving, for up to two hours; next, they have to remain unresponsive to stimuli as their trainers yell at them and degrade them.

For First Time in Modern Era, Living With Parents Edges Out Other Living Arrangements for 18- to 34-Year-Olds

20th April 2017

Read it.

In 2014, for the first time in more than 130 years, adults ages 18 to 34 were slightly more likely to be living in their parents’ home than they were to be living with a spouse or partner in their own household.

The Democrats are succeeding in creating a culture of dependency.

This turn of events is fueled primarily by the dramatic drop in the share of young Americans who are choosing to settle down romantically before age 35.

Thank you, militant feminism.

In 2014, more young women (16%) than young men (13%) were heading up a household without a spouse or partner. This is mainly because women are more likely than men to be single parents living with their children.

Due to the government giving young women who get pregnant outside of marriage support for housing, medical care, and food. Watch the black family as it goes down the tubes.

The Civil War Is Here

18th April 2017

Read it.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

CalExit Secession Movement Dies the Way It Lived: Stupidly

18th April 2017

Read it.

One notably bizarre, disorganized push to turn California into its own country is dead—at least for now. Its leader, Louis J. Marinelli, announced that he is canceling the petition and pulling up stakes. While he said he believed in the struggle for California’s independence “from the United States so we could build the kind of country that reflects our progressive values,” he has decided on a new path.

He’s decided he’d rather live in Russia, which is not exactly famous for its progressiveness.

But very much the picture of what ‘progressives’ want for America. Funny how reality always tells the truth in the end.

Predictably, demonstrations were staged in downtown Budapest to protest the action against the CEU. Thousands of foreigners were imported to take part in the demonstrations.

Gov’t Geologists Discover The US’s Largest Natural Gas Deposit

I guess Senator Schumer doesn’t count.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) discovered the largest continuous natural gas deposit in the country, stretching across the Gulf Coast states of Texas and Louisiana.

USGS estimates between 4 billion barrels of oil and 304.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas sit untapped in the Haynesville and Bossier shale formations. More natural gas was found in these two formations than any other continuous assessment the USGS has ever conducted.

California, by contrast, as discovered the largest continuous Sanctuary City deposit in the country.

Let’s see which one makes the country better off.

Alt-Left Insanity: Steal the Vote From White Men, Then Steal Their Stuff

14th April 2017

Read it.

The alt-left are like the Rosie Ruiz of politics. Ruiz won the 1980 Boston Marathon and she did it in classic liberal style. I’ll let Time describe it: “Ruiz made winning a marathon look easy. And it was, using her signature strategy: Don’t run the whole thing.”

Liberals learned their lessons from Rosie. The way to win is to fix the race. Now they apply that strategy wherever they can — workplaces, academia and, of course, media. Their way to fix every race is to make every race about race.

Which is, really, the Left’s agenda in a nutshell.

Elections? Racist. Business? Racist. Dating? Racist. Picking up someone’s pencil and being polite to her? Yep, you got it, racist. Because somehow you expect people who are illegally in America to, you know, obey the law.

You know, of course that Ists are even worse than Phobes.

Race wars never go away for the left because they allow liberals to separate us into victim classes. If people don’t consider themselves victims, they don’t vote for the left. Expect to hear a lot about this as Nextflix just dropped the trailer for its stupid show, Dear White People yesterday.

Without victims, there can be no activists. (Oops. I meant ‘politically-woke people’.)

The Elements of Bureaucratic Style

14th April 2017

Read it.

What became clear to me in this exchange is that the passive voice is itself unsuited for the lexical landscape of United’s email, which itself is part of a larger world we now find ourselves in, where corporate and government bureaucracies rely heavily on language to shape our perception. Munoz’s email relies heavily on the passive voice to evade culpability, but he also employs a host of other rhetorical moves that collude to put the blame on the man who was assaulted and carried out on a stretcher. Like a well-trained bureaucrat, Munoz used an array of syntactical choices in a predictable, quantifiable, and deliberate manner, and it’s time we recognize it for what it is.

Cue mandatory derogatory references to the Left’s boogeymen Nigel Farage and Donald Trump.

As I’ve written elsewhere, the thrust of these style guides falls back to a weird kind of masculine virility. The terms themselves—“passive” and “active”—rely heavily on received tropes of gendered norms, and for that reason alone we should be suspicious of them.

Just lookin’ for phobes, man, just lookin’ for phobes.

The term “officer-involved shooting” is a perfect example of bureaucratic speech: It invariably is paired with an active verb (“an officer-involved shooting occurred”) and yet the entire purpose of the construction is to imbue the scene with passivity. Police did not kill anyone; a shooting just occurred and it happened to involve officers. There is no actor in an officer-involved shooting, and not even any real actions. We don’t even technically know who was shot, only that an officer was somehow involved. An entire syntactical arrangement consisting of a subject (“police”), a verb (“shot”), and an object (“a civilian”) are transmuted into a noun (“shooting”) with a compound adjective (“officer-involved”) attached. It’s almost as if nothing took place at all.

This is even more obvious in the Politically Correct phrase used for partial-birth abortion: ‘intact dilation and extraction’, which could be something involving a car crash and the Jaws of Life.

Portland Resistance Radicals Trying to Disrupt an Anti-Immigration Speaker Thwarted by Lewis & Clark Students

12th April 2017

Read it.

Protests broke out at the International Affairs Symposium at Portland’s Lewis & Clark College Tuesday when radicals outside, frustrated at being stymied, started pounding on the door of a debate on immigration, as if trying to break in. But the true hero of the event was a black Muslim student from Sudan, a country included in Trump’s travel ban, who heroically grabbed the bullhorn from one of the screaming yahoos and lambasted them for disrupting the event.

He told them that because of them, the event ended abruptly, robbing him of an opportunity to ask his question. He pointed out that if they want change and reform, they are going about it the wrong way if they won’t even let people talk—showing that, ironically, a foreigner, has a better grasp of free speech, tolerance, pluralism, and open dialogue than the protesters speaking on his behalf.

The brownshirts of the Left are on the march. Yet Trump is the New Hitler.

Police Drag Man Off Flight Because United Overbooked It

10th April 2017

Read it.

A United Airlines flight from Chicago to Louisville was overbooked, so the airline sought 4 passengers to voluntarily give up their seats in exchange for cash and a free night in a hotel.

When no one took the offer, the airline used a computer to choose “volunteers” at random. One man chosen refused, saying he was a doctor who had to see patients in the morning. That’s when police were called and the man was physically dragged down the aisle and off the plane.

United Airlines said they needed the seats for airline employees who had to be in Louisville on Monday for their jobs.

Yet another reason why I don’t fly. And only fools fly on United.

More: Jon Gabriel, Ed.: Fly the Unfriendly Skies

And more: A man wouldn’t leave an overbooked United flight. So he was dragged off, battered and limp.

And still more: Why Should Police Help United Airlines Cheat Its Customers?

It’s Inevitable, Part III

10th April 2017

Severian brings the gloom.

The entire cultural apparatus — all media, all education, K-thru-PhD — is dedicated to the Postmodern proposition that everything is a social construction.  And yet, nobody can ever point to a “society” that’s doing the “construction.”  That probably seems wrong, as the edutainment media complex blames everything on White Males.  But ask yourself: Do you personally know any white males — or anybody else for that matter — who has any of the powers ascribed to these fearsome creatures?   Sure, sure, Soros, the Koch Brothers, pick your devil, but again: do you personally know them?  Unless you’re in the “private jet for a ski weekend in the Swiss Alps” set, I bet you don’t (and if you are, what are you doing here?).  The richest, most powerful guy you know, I’m willing to wager, is effectively as powerless as you yourself are.  The Patriarch, for lack of a better term, is a myth — and everybody knows it.

The Left’s Transracial Monster

6th April 2017

Read it.

Dr. Frankenstein had nothing on leftists. Frankenstein’s monster merely terrorized the countryside. The monsters birthed by the left tend to terrorize countries, cultures, and occasionally even the entire world. And like Dr. Frankenstein’s hulking brute, the left’s monstrosities eventually turn on their creators. Take communism, for example. The only thing communists love more than killing innocent people is purging those within their own ranks. One of the left’s most recent hellspawns, the Muslim “refugee” tidal wave, is wreaking havoc throughout Europe, menacing women, gays, and Jews—three of the left’s most sacred “victim groups.” That horror show is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better (if it gets any better). And the malformed beast known as Black Lives Matter has done little except encourage cops to stop policing black neighborhoods, leaving residents at the mercy of the “black-on-black crime” that MSNBC swears doesn’t exist.

Marine Corps Drill Instructor Accused of Slapping Recruit Who Leapt to His Death to Face Court-Martial

6th April 2017

Read it.

Gunnery Sgt. Joseph Felix faces charges of cruelty and maltreatment, drunk and disorderly conduct, failure to obey a lawful general order and obstruction of justice, TECOM announced Wednesday in a news release. This comes more than a year after the March 18, 2016, death of Raheel Siddiqui, 20, of the 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, who was killed at Parris Island after falling nearly 40 feet down a stairwell.

Felix was one of Siddiqui’s drill instructors. Prior to Siddiqui’s death, Felix had been accused of making another Muslim recruit exercise in the shower and then ordering the recruit to sit in a commercial dryer, an investigation found. Felix is accused of turning the dryer on several times while taunting the recruit about his religion, such as asking if he took part in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

This is intolerable.

Far be it from me to prejudge a judicial matter, but if he’s found guilty, I hope they hang him.

Losing Their Religion

5th April 2017

Read it.

The cultural gulf between gun owners and those who favor civilian disarmament is huge, and right now, it’s not getting any smaller. The chattering classes in the Northeast are amazed when “Duck Dynasty” or The Passion of the Christ become hits, and then they attempt to capitalize on that success with tone-deaf efforts such as the Noah movie and similar attempts to speak the language of a country they’ve never been to.

By that same token, we on the right incessantly mock the excesses of left-liberal culture. The antics of today’s social justice warriors and the ongoing confusion over self-declared genders (and even races) provide plenty of grist for right-wing humor mills.

We don’t understand their culture, and they don’t understand ours. However, just as there are distinctly religious elements to “our” culture, there are religious elements to “their” culture, and those elements are becoming more noticeable all the time.

FBN’s Varney Blasts CEO’s Hypocrisy on Taxing the Wealthy More

4th April 2017

Read it.

“The Patriotic Millionaires, who I am a group of, and Responsible Wealth members, we are all feeling like we could pay more taxes” LaMagna said on in an interview March 31.

Varney repeatedly asked the millionaire CEO why he doesn’t act on his feelings. “Why don’t you pay more in taxes? You could just write a check. Why don’t you?” LaMagna excused his inaction by saying “it would be like me putting a drop in the ocean.”

“No,” Varney exclaimed “it’s putting your money where your mouth is.”

Which, of course, they refuse to do, because it’s all a big lie, as I have explained many times in these posts.

Frustrated, Varney argued that men like LaMagna, who have accrued wealth over time can actually avoid paying income tax. However, wage earners would be subject to these higher taxes. “I just think it is outrageous that wealthy people should tell strivers, people who make money in income, that we pay more tax but you won’t do it. That’s outrageous.”

LaMagna insisted that he only is referring to people earning more than $1 million a year. But, Varney again blasted him for his hypocritical refusal to voluntarily donate his own money to the treasury. “There is nothing stopping you from writing a check to the government if you think that the government can use that money wisely and they need it. Why don’t you do it?”

“It works when the collective does it” LaMagna argued. “That’s the point.”

No, the point is that the forms of taxation that these slimeballs want to increase are not the forms of taxation to which they are liable. The point is to sweet-talk the stupid into raising taxes on themselves that these guys will still be able to avoid.

The tense interview concluded with Varney berating the CEO for his hypocrisy. “You come on this program saying you want me to pay more on taxes, but you won’t voluntarily write a check to the treasury, and you’ve got the wealth and I don’t.”

Varney understands the dialectic.

On Political Correctness

3rd April 2017

Read it.

A clarification, before I continue (since deliberate misconstrual is itself a tactic of the phenomenon in question). By political correctness, I do not mean the term as it has come to be employed on the right—that is, the expectation of adherence to the norms of basic decency, like refraining from derogatory epithets. I mean its older, intramural denotation: the persistent attempt to suppress the expression of unwelcome beliefs and ideas.

So this is how I’ve come to understand the situation. Selective private colleges have become religious schools. The religion in question is not Methodism or Catholicism but an extreme version of the belief system of the liberal elite: the liberal professional, managerial, and creative classes, which provide a large majority of students enrolled at such places and an even larger majority of faculty and administrators who work at them. To attend those institutions is to be socialized, and not infrequently, indoctrinated into that religion.

Judge Allows Incitement Lawsuit Against Trump to Proceed

Sounds to me as if the protesters were doing the inciting. Funny how they never seem to get sued.
