Michael Moore Calls On Americans To ‘Disrupt’ Trump’s Inauguration

Wannabe Cali Governor Gives Up Against Beach-Blocking Billionaire VC

8th December 2016

Read it.

At an extraordinary meeting of the normally staid State Lands Commission on Tuesday, a series of lawyers, local residents and surfers lined up to encourage the commissioners to follow their staff’s recommendation and use the extraordinary power of eminent domain to force Vinod Khosla to sell a parcel of land that covers the only entrance to Martins beach in San Mateo county.

The Sun Microsystems cofounder, who is worth $1.5bn, bought a 90-acre plot of land alongside the popular surfing spot in 2008 for $32.5m before closing public access in 2010. It has been tied up in legal disputes ever since.

Despite the state of California passing a specific law designed to force Khosla to open up access or sell the relevant piece of land (and bypass his novel legal strategy), he has refused to back down during two years of negotiations and talks have gone nowhere. That finally led the commission’s staff to make the extraordinary recommendation to the commission that it use its power to force a compulsory purchase. If voted on, it would be the first time in 78 years of existence that the commission would have done so.

But after 90 minutes of testimony and nearly an hour in closed session, the commissioners backed down and instead asked staff to “report back on the specific steps and process elements associated with the condemnation.”

In Hillary Country, he who has the gold makes the rules. Democrats talk a good fight about ‘power to the people’, but when the chips are down the guy who has the chips gets his way.

22 Heavily Armed Men Post Mannequin Challenge on Facebook, Much to Delight of Cops

7th December 2016

Read it.

Pistols and shotguns hung frozen in the air, their blunt ends aimed at various persons, who remained as still as, well, mannequins. One man was prostrate under the back of a car, as if for cover, the barrel of his shotgun peeking out. Another hid behind a plastic trashcan, flimsy protection if this were a real battle.

Gee, they all appear to be black. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

It was a version, albeit an edgy and ultimately inadvisable one, of the mannequin challenge – that Internet craze of filming a scene of stark-still people, generally with the song ‘Black Beatles’ by Rae Sremmurd playing over it. It has become so popular that everyone from Taylor Swift to NFL players to Alabama inmates have recorded a version.

Show biz for stupid people.

Pipeline Protesters Win Pyrrhic Victory

5th December 2016

Read it.

There’s a reason why Republicans soon will control not only the presidency, but also the Senate, the House, 33 governorships and both chambers in 32 states.

The reason can be found in the Dakota Access Pipeline case. With its elevation of identity politics above all else, its twisting of facts to accuse others of racism, its fanatic claim of being above the law and its wild exaggerations of environmental risk, the protest helps explain why so few Americans are willing to give the Left power.

The protesters won an important battle on Sunday, when their efforts convinced the Obama administration to block the pipeline. But it’s likely to be a Pyrrhic victory, not only because the Trump administration might reverse it, but also because it deepens the public’s distrust of modern liberals’ governance.

‘We’re teaching university students lies’

5th December 2016

Read it.

Part of the reason I got embroiled in this [gender identity] controversy was because of what I know about how things went wrong in the Soviet Union. Many of the doctrines that underlie the legislation that I’ve been objecting to share structural similarities with the Marxist ideas that drove Soviet Communism. The thing I object to the most was the insistence that people use these made up words like ‘xe’ and ‘xer’ that are the construction of authoritarians. There isn’t a hope in hell that I’m going to use their language, because I know where that leads.

Black Man Arrested After Vandalizing Cars With Pro-Trump, Anti-Black Graffiti

Another day, another hate hoax.

The culprit in what was initially believed to be a pro-Trump, anti-black act of vandalism in South Philadelphia earlier this month turns out to be a 58-year-old black man.

According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, William Tucker faces four charges related to the case. Police say that on Nov. 9, the day after Trump was elected, Tucker sprayed “Trump Rules” and “Black Bitch” on a white SUV owned by his 62-year-old neighbor, a black woman.

Black Lies Matter: Investigation Confirms Absence of Wrongdoing in Charlotte Shooting

1st December 2016

Read it.

But what about the people who claimed on social media that they saw Scott step out of his car unarmed? According to Murray, these people later recanted. Three people who made the claim told State Bureau of Investigation agents in interviews that they hadn’t actually seen the shooting.

What about the claim that Scott had a book, not a gun, when he was shot? No such book was found in the vicinity of Scott’s van.

In other words, the anti-police narrative that became the pretext for two nights of rioting — during which 16 police officers and a number of civilians were injured — was a pack of lies. But this won’t stop the left from adding Scott’s name to the list of “victims” who have been “executed” by “racist” police officers. Michael Brown, the “gentle giant” who assaulted a police officer in Missouri, still graces that list.

Black Lies Matter: Charlotte DA Declines to Prosecute Officer Who Shot Keith Scott — and Exposes Another Anti-Cop Hoax

30th November 2016

Another riot, another hoax. In 2014, buildings burned in Ferguson, Missouri, as “hands up, don’t shoot” rocketed around the nation to become one of the lies of the year. In 2016, buildings burned in Charlotte, North Carolina, as activists claimed that police gunned down an unarmed Keith Scott simply for reading a book.

Today Charlotte-Mecklenburg district attorney Andrew Murray not only announced that his office would not file charges against officer Brantley Venson for shooting Scott, he also offered comprehensive evidence to rebut the conspiracy theories around the case.

Larry Summers 101

Steve Sailer looks at the ongoing efforts to root out ThoughtCrime.

We read constantly in the press about about efforts by the Establishment to hunt down and exterminate the last redoubts of male dominance. For example, the New York Times is currently worked up over astronomy departments being too male. As we all know, he who controls the astronomy department controls the world!

But in reality, the Big Three of powerful professional schools — law schools, medical schools, and business schools — opened up to women students a long time ago, with near sex equality occurring in enrollments with relatively little resistance over the course of the 1970s.

Nick Cannon Says Planned Parenthood Engaging in ‘Modern Day Eugenics’

The “America’s Got Talented” host tore into Planned Parenthood and its stance on abortion in an interview last week with “The Breakfast Club.” He said Planned Parenthood is inflicting “real genocide” on the African American community.

“Hillary [Clinton] was sneaking and cheating,” Cannon said in the radio interview. “Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it’s real genocide, and it’s been like that for years.”

White Identity Politics Gave Us Trump. But Did the Left Give Us White Identity Politics?

29th November 2016

Read it.

Hint: Yes.

“It is not good enough for someone to say, ‘I’m a woman! Vote for me!’ No, that’s not good enough,” said Sanders. “What we need is a woman who has the guts to stand up to Wall Street, to the insurance companies, to the drug companies.”

In response, Quentin James—former head of Ready for Hillary’s outreach efforts to people of color—had this to say, “I like U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders but his comments regarding identity politics suggest he may be a white supremacist, too.”

Sanders. A white supremacist. For daring to suggest that the most obvious sort of race-and-gender tribalism was not a winning strategy for the left.

You can’t make this stuff up.

7 Reasons Jill Stein’s Recount Is a Scam

What caused the sudden rise in Stein’s fundraising goal?

Progressives Without Power

28th November 2016

Kevin Williamson deconstructs the Democrat party.

American progressives have a long and genuine commitment to mass democracy, having supported not only various expansions of the franchise but also many instruments of direct democracy such as the ballot initiative, but they also have a long and genuine commitment to frustrating democracy when it gets in the way of the progressive agenda, which is why they have spent the better part of a century working to politicize the courts, the bureaucracies, and the non-governmental institutions they control in order to ensure they get their way even when they lose at the ballot box. Democrats did not pay much attention when they started suffering losses at the state level, because they were working against federalism and toward a unitary national government controlled from Washington. And they did not fight as hard as they might to recover from their losses in Congress while Barack Obama sat in the White House, obstructing Republican legislative initiatives and attempting to govern through executive fiat — an innovation that the Democrats surely are about to regret in the direst way.

What Fidel Castro Taught Me About the Radical Left

28th November 2016

David French enters the twilight world.

I didn’t realize how many Americans actually hate their own country until I talked about Fidel Castro at Harvard Law School. I had no idea how many Americans despise democracy and have no problem with tyranny – so long as they’re in charge – until I talked about Castro in Manhattan. And I had no clue how many Americans believed that sins committed in the name of socialism weren’t sins at all until I talked about Castro in Ithaca, New York.

Stick This in Your Pipeline

26th November 2016

Read it.

The next radical environmental tactic is now evident for eyes to see: block all infrastructure projects—especially oil and gas pipelines—with criminal trespass and obstruction. Having killed the Keystone pipeline (only temporarily, now that Trump is going to approve it once he takes office), the red-greenies are trying to stop the Dakota Access pipeline that has received all of its regulatory permits.

Naturally environmentalists have to lie about the whole matter, whipping up claims that sacred native American grounds are being harmed by the pipeline, or that groundwater is at risk. (The first claim reminds me of a joke I heard in Australia 30 years ago: how do know when you’ve found sacred Aboriginal grounds? When you find uranium or other valuable minerals underneath.) Naturally the usual Hollywood idiots show up to join the war whoop.

America’s Students Are Morons Who Can’t Distinguish Real News From ‘Fake News’

The Stanford researchers behind the study evaluated 7,804 students from a very wide variety of backgrounds in 12 U.S. states. Some students attended hardscrabble city schools in Los Angeles, for example. Others attended schools in middle-class Minnesota suburbs. Some were enrolled at Stanford, an elite university with an acceptance rate under 6 percent.

“When it comes to evaluating information that flows through social media channels,” the researchers behind the study wrote, these kids today are “easily duped.”

With results as you see them. Some never grow out of it, and wind up being employed by the DemLegHump Media.

I don’t pay a lot of attention to spices, but my wife, being a terrific cook, does. So she pointed out that following the election, a Wisconsin-based spice company called Penzeys has announced that it only wants customers from one side of the aisle.

It turns out that I am (or rather, my wife is) a pretty substantial Penzeys customer. She took this photo of Penzeys spices from our cupboard, which she says she will return to a local Penzeys store and explain that since they don’t want our business, she is returning their products.

Well done.

Where to go for future spice needs? It turns out that a competing spice company, The Spice House, is now promoting the fact that it stays out of politics and welcomes everyone’s business.

When Social Programs Hurt Kids

21st November 2016

Read it.

Which could be generalized to ‘When Social Programs Hurt’, period.

Tennessee’s foray into public preschool is not going well. The technical evaluation published last year by Vanderbilt University researchers Mark Lipsey and Dale Farran showed a familiar result: Preschool attenders outperformed the control group at the beginning of kindergarten, but their advantage was gone by the end of the year. In fact, the data suggested that the preschool group might have fallen behind their non-preschool peers by third grade. Nevertheless, preschool advocates pointed to an important caveat. Because the evaluation focused on a subsample of students who needed parental consent to be followed, the treatment and control groups were not fully randomized. Preschool advocates such as Timothy Bartik and Steven Barnett downplayed the study’s importance specifically for that reason. But Professor Farran revealed some more bad news at a Brookings event last month. She now has the results from the full randomized sample, and they are roughly the same as from the subsample. If anything, the new results point more clearly toward a negative impact. In third grade, the preschool group scored significantly lower on the state math and science tests compared to the non-preschool group. (The effect sizes were –0.13 and –0.11, respectively.) The preschool group also was more likely to have behavioral problems and repeat grades, but those differences did not reach significance.

Ooh, It’s Like a Hate Wave!

21st November 2016

Jim Goad reminds us that the default for the Left is lying.

According to Nevada Senator Harry Reid—who is retiring from politics to pursue a career as a Roy Orbison impersonator—Donald Trump’s election “has sparked a wave of hate crimes across America.” Almost as if they were in an echo chamber together with Reid, the passionately white-hating website Salon confirms Reid’s assertion that ever since Trump schlonged Hillary Clinton in the electoral count, there have been “hate acts reported across the country.”

Unfortunately—or fortunately, I guess, depending on how you feel about these things—it appears that many of these reported pro-Trump hate crimes simply did not occur.

Hate crime hoaxes have been “a thing” at least since the very notion of “hate crimes” was invented. To my knowledge, they were first documented extensively by Laird Wilcox in the early 1990s. In the late 1990s, I even found myself on the receiving end of an attempted hate-crime hoax.
