Order, Please, Not Utopia

28th July 2015

Read it.

Listen, Mayor: the first job of government is to keep the people safe in their homes and in the streets. If you can’t do that as a municipal chief executive, you are a flop. Equality is not the job of government, unless you are a Communist, in which case equality usually comes at the barrel of a gun or the end of a noose. And voters of New York, please learn this lesson too, despite your attachment to FDR and the New Deal or your seductive professor of race-class-and-gender studies at Brown or Wesleyan. New York needs a realistic mayor. We don’t have one.

Unfortunately, stupid voters usually get the politicians they deserve.

Parents Should Be Banned From Smacking Children, UN Tells Britain

24th July 2015

Read it.

In a wide-ranging report, the UN Human Rights Committee called for Britain to implement a number of measures in order to comply with international treaties, including the holding of independent investigations into murders and other human rights abuses during Northern Ireland’s Troubles and improvements to the way human rights abuses by the Armed Forces overseas are dealt with.

It also said the age of criminal responsibility – which is 10 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and eight in Scotland although children there can only be prosecuted when they reach 12 – was “not in accordance with international standards” and should be raised.

Who hires these people? And why?

In Texas, an Illegal Immigrant Crime Wave

23rd July 2015

Read it.

Christian Adams reports that an internal report by the Texas Department of Public Safety, obtained by PJ Media, finds that illegal immigrants have committed hundreds of thousands of crimes, including nearly 3,000 homicides, in Texas. According to the Department of Public Safety’s analysis, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.

My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.

They’re already criminals just by coming here. They’ve already proved that they’re willing to break the law if they get some advantage by it. Why is it news that they break other laws when they get here?

Talking About Illegals With Our Politicians

23rd July 2015

Read it.

In 2013 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement let 36,000 illegal aliens out of its custody. Of the 87,000 criminal convictions committed by the aliens, 15,635 were for drunk driving. These are offenses that the U.S. government doesn’t consider “serious crimes.”

Most of these crimes take place in sanctuary cities—that is, cities where the local government has given up enforcing the law. These sanctuary cities look like Latin America: a white upper class nominally in control while a brown, dumbed underclass services them while running on slave labor.

Murder Incorporated Denies Wrongdoing

23rd July 2015

Read it.

On the radio, one of the top-of-the-hour news blurbs was that Planned Parenthood dismissed all allegations from an unnamed video as being fraudulent, an attempt to scare women and hinder their reproductive rights.

Nothing more was said. That was given as straight news, as if it were a newsworthy item. There was no context, no explanation, and the other side of the story was simply “pretended”out of existence.

The unnamed video, of course was the one where a top officer for Planned Parenthood (as Murder Incorporated is called on the cubicular bizzaro world, where all things are backward) was dickering for money over how much for each organ harvested from late term abortions. She described how the forceps would grasp the dismembered baby body in the proper spot, so as to not damage the expensive kidneys, lungs, or other juicy bits that bring a fine price on the medical meat market.

Feminism as Totalitarian Ideology

23rd July 2015

The Other McCain continues his trip through the swamp.

Feminist gender theory, explained by Professor Salih in her synopsis of Professor Butler’s influential 1990 book, Gender Theory: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity, is totalitarian in two senses of the word. First, it is a political invention, a belief system that claims to define reality in order to advance the claims of a group to exercise complete power. Second, feminism is a totalitarian movement in that its adherents employ methods of terroristic intimidation to silence those who dissent from feminist ideology. This is most evident in academia. On those rare occasions when any critic of feminism appears on a university campus, they are met by angry mobs of feminist protesters.

So Many Stupid Kids Are Going to College, Marine Officers Are Actually Getting Dumber

22nd July 2015

Read it.

A new study indicates that Marine Corps officers’ intelligence has consistently declined over a 35-year period, and researchers are placing the blame on the “democratization of college,” that is, an ever-expanding pool of college graduates.

Brookings Institution researchers Matthew F. Cancian and Michael W. Klein looked at General Classification Test (GCT) scores from 1980 to 2014, finding a steady decline, which is troubling since the GCT predicts success in the military.

Officer scores dropped by 8.8 points, moving from an average of 130.9 in 1980 to 122.1 in 2014.

Not good news.

This Year’s Model

22nd July 2015

Read it.

Certification as the liberals’ official angry black man is a lucrative gig. The market is upscale, but the job is only temporary. Fashions change, or rather remain subject to a cycle. The job isn’t easy; it requires high attainment in the art of performance. Black rage must be precisely matched to liberal guilt.

James Baldwin provides the original model, in the essays originally published in the New Yorker and then collected in The Fire Next Time. Baldwin was a deeply literary man working at an elevated height, but the descent from Baldwin was steep. The sixties and early seventies served up new models on an almost annual basis. Before long we had Stokely Carmichael, Eldridge Cleaver, and, lest we forget, George Jackson.

Migrant Crisis Chaos: Two Injured After Falling Off Lorry and 10 Others on the Run in UK

22nd July 2015

Read it.

TWO illegal immigrants have been seriously injured after falling from a lorry and another 10 are on the run in the English countryside as Britain’s migrant crisis continues to spiral out of control.

The pair are thought to have climbed under a lorry at Calais, clinging on for a further 60 miles after reaching Dover before succumbing to tiredness and tumbling onto the motorway.

 

Welcome to the wonderful world of illegal immigration. Be thankful that you only have a hundred miles of ocean to watch, rather than a thousand miles of desert.

There are almost 4,000 migrants, mostly from Africa, living in squalid camps in and around Calais waiting for their chance to make the crossing to Britain.

 

And what are the French doing about that? Why, nothing. It’s what the French do best. God forbid that they should send them back where they came from.

Attracted by a generous benefits system and an abundance of black market work, many are going to increasingly dangerous lengths in an attempt to enter the country.

My, that certainly sounds familiar.

Hackers ‘Remotely Carjack’ Jeep From 10 Miles Away and Drive It Into Ditch

22nd July 2015

Read it.

Hackers have remotely carjacked a Jeep, took control of it and crash it into a ditch.

Two men used a laptop and a mobile phone to seize control of the Cherokee model as it drove at 70mph along the motorway – and turned off its engine, slammed on the brakes and ramped its wind-screen wipers to maximum speed.

They were also able to take over its steering – albeit only when it was in reverse – its brakes and its locks.

This is one of the reasons why I don’t drive an American-brand car. There’s more to Detroit being a disaster area than just a penchant for electing black Democrats.

Dr Mengele: Call Your Office!

22nd July 2015

Read it. And watch the video.

Selling the organs of aborted babies is big business and Planned Parenthood can deliver most organs intact chirped Dr. Deborah Nucatola between mouthfuls of food a few days ago. Nucatola, a high placed executive at Planned Parenthood, unwittingly exposed the grisly work of her organization in an undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group.

The video is disturbing. Nucatola’s demeanor, her perfunctory manner about manipulating an abortion to preserve the quality of particular body parts for resale, her eagerness to cultivate the client reveals no shred of conscience about trafficking in the harvested organs of unborn children. She talks like a salesman selling a cell phone upgrade.

Evil enters the world when a man puts his hands in service to a lie. Evil enters because the man has to restructure reality to conform to the lie, lest reality reveal that the lie is indeed a lie.

The lie operating in Nucatola’s glib descriptions about fetal parts is that the aborted baby is not a baby. It takes titanic self-deception to deny the humanity of a fetus (Latin for “little one”) but in the battle between avarice and charity many choose the cash. That’s one reason why they lie.

As Beijing Becomes a Supercity, the Rapid Growth Brings Pains

20th July 2015

Read it.

For decades, China’s government has tried to limit the size of Beijing, the capital, through draconian residency permits. Now, the government has embarked on an ambitious plan to make Beijing the center of a new supercity of 130 million people.

Guess they bought the regressive ‘density’ argument. Always knew that was a Commie plot.

The planned megalopolis, a metropolitan area that would be about six times the size of New York’s, is meant to revamp northern China’s economy and become a laboratory for modern urban growth.

The technical term for that is ‘behavioral sink’.

“The supercity is the vanguard of economic reform,” said Liu Gang, a professor at Nankai University in Tianjin who advises local governments on regional development. “It reflects the senior leadership’s views on the need for integration, innovation and environmental protection.”

In other words, if they’re all in one place, they’re easier to control.

But the new supercity is intended to be different in scope and conception. It would be spread over 82,000 square miles, about the size of Kansas, and hold a population larger than a third of the United States. And unlike metro areas that have grown up organically, Jing-Jin-Ji would be a very deliberate creation. Its centerpiece: a huge expansion of high-speed rail to bring the major cities within an hour’s commute of each other.

I want to know where they’re going to get the water. And where they’re going to put the sewage.

But some of the new roads and rails are years from completion. For many people, the creation of the supercity so far has meant ever-longer commutes on gridlocked highways to the capital.

Ah, yes, reality is what happens while you’re making plans….

Senselessness and Sensibility

19th July 2015

Mark Steyn speaks truth to power.

A fifth victim of the Chattanooga jihad boy has died: Petty Officer Randall Smith, US Navy.

I’m afraid the makeshift memorials of flags and other patriotic memorabilia that have sprung up on the edge of the police tape depress the hell out of me. A no doubt sincere veneration for the military apparently can only express itself with a feeble passivity that is a large part of the problem. This isn’t a time for the bumper-sticker bromides of “We salute our heroes/Thank you for your service/We support our troops”. Among the dead are men who waged a bloody and hard-fought battle to retake Fallujah …only to come home and die unarmed in a crappy shopping mall at the hands of a halfwit fanatic whose family had been under the leisurely money-no-object scrutiny of the bloated security apparatus for years.

A Chinese-made teddy bear from Wal-Mart is not an appropriate reaction. Righteous anger is. And there’s not a lot of evidence of that. At that parking-lot memorial, the public seems to discern that such anger is no longer an approved sensibility – whereas a teary generalized sadness gets plenty of media coverage. This is the same media, by the way, that, after a couple of perfunctory questions about Chattanooga, asked Josh Earnest for more details about the “father-daughter weekend” President Obama is currently enjoying in New York. Golly, you’d almost get the impression they’re really not that sad at all.

Screw the cakes and balloons. We who did not know them cannot mourn them: That is for their friends and family. The nation’s duty is to avenge them – so that they did not die in vain.

Guns Don’t Kill People, Gun-Free Zones Kill People

17th July 2015

Those signs at the Naval reserve center and the armed forces recruitment station are the greatest outrage of the Chattanooga jihad story. Or rather, they should be, but — given the universal government and media devotion to “gun-free zones” — they won’t receive enough attention to dial up public opinion to the point of outrage.

Let’s Face It, Planned Parenthood Is Evil

15th July 2015

Read it.

In America, it’s illegal to donate money to a candidate without first reporting it to the government. Even then, if you give more than is permissible you might end up in jail.  In this country, you can’t add trans fats to your foods or smoke cigarettes in your own bar. Here, Little Sisters of the Poor can’t tell the state they’d rather not buy condoms and bakers can’t tell a couple they’d rather not participate in their wedding.

But it’s completely legal to kill an unborn baby for convenience and then sell its parts for cash.

Quite frankly, I don’t see a lot of parenthood in their plan. Perhaps they ought to be sued for false advertising.

At a Loss for Words

15th July 2015

Matt Gibson says what I’ve been thinking.

It’s official—words no longer have meaning.

As a proud member of society’s educated, progressive elite, I’m thrilled. Since Bill Clinton famously disputed the definition of the singular third-person present form of the verb “to be,” many of us have looked forward to a time when all words would be rendered completely meaningless. Thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts and his recent King v. Burwell ruling, that dream has finally been realized.

See, for too long we have allowed “words” and their “meanings” to obstruct us on our quest for social justice. The long, slow march to the Utopia of American Socialism will never end if we have to rely on “words.” There are simply too many of them and they all mean different things. That’s why this decision is so powerful—the “words” are still there, but they no longer “mean” anything beyond what we want them to mean.

“Diversity” and “Inclusion” Litmus Tests for Tenure

13th July 2015

Read it.

Colleges generally weigh teaching and research as more important, but “service” can play a significant role.

These are areas that universities should rightly take into consideration when weighing whether to make a person more centrally part of its core faculty. What is outside the realm of relevant criteria, however, are ideological litmus tests, which violate academic freedom and freedom of conscience. “Service” can’t be used to favor Democrats over Republicans (or vice versa); omnivores over vegetarians; pacifists over NRA members; or proponents of a gold standard over stalwarts of the Federal Reserve. The list of possible litmus tests is inexhaustible. But the list of actual litmus tests currently used by universities is pretty short.

There is now one in place at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). The test is for “diversity” and its close companion “inclusion,” both of which take up significant real estate in the university’s newly updated 2015-2016 promotion and tenure dossier guidelines.

Idealists Tend to Cause Far More Misery to Humanity Than Cynics

13th July 2015

Read it.

Moral righteousness is not confined to the Left, but it appears to be more common there, and becomes more so the further Left you go. I thought of this when the subject of Jeremy Corbyn’s marriage came up again. Although I would agree that politicians’ private lives are best skirted over – for fear that it will only attract dullards as a result, and because journalists shouldn’t be taking the moral high ground on anything – the cause of their divorce is instructive: his wife’s decision to send their son to a grammar school. It’s a classic example of English socialists not seeing eye-to-eye with their immigrant supporters on education, which immigrants tend to really care about. But what does it say about Corbyn as a person that political ideals came first?

“I Feel Like”: This Has to Stop

11th July 2015

Read it.

This phrase is almost never used to describe one’s feelings. It is almost exclusively used to describe an opinion. “I feel like that would look better in blue.” “I feel like the Republicans hate poor people.” “I feel like we should have a media strategy instead of a product strategy.” It is used when there is the slightest hint of disagreement, or any opinion is expressed that the speaker is uncertain about. In either case, it is used as a verbal softening: a way to have an opinion without having an opinion. “I’m not saying you’re wrong, I just feel like you’re wrong.” You can question my idea, but you can’t question my feelings.

Lots of Democrats Want Socialism

8th July 2015

Nearly 10,000 people turned out to hear Bernie Sanders in Wisconsin. Why? Apparently, many Democrats want socialism.

Sanders calls himself a “democratic socialist,” not to be confused with New York City mayor Bill de Blasio’s preferred label, “social democrat,” but both believe that more power and wealth in the hands of government (and less in the hands of free people and the free market) is a good thing. They just don’t want you to think they’re dictators like Stalin. They may institute terrible economic policies, but they’ll have the backing of voters.

America’s First High-Speed Rail Project

7th July 2015

Read it.

Despite continued evidence that high-speed rail is a waste of money, reporters still write articles lamenting that high-speed trains in America are “elusive.” It’s elusive for a simple reason: it makes no sense, being slower than flying, less convenient than driving, and far more expensive than both.

The problem with trains is that they take you and people you don’t know from where you aren’t to where you don’t want to be at a time that is inconvenient to you. This naturally recommends itself highly to Democrites and other statists.

What’s changed between 1906 and today? Today we have trains that can go roughly twice as fast as the train Miller proposed, but we also have planes that go at least five times as fast. We also have automobiles that can take you anywhere you want in an urban area, while the trains can only serve a few points because every stop reduces the average speed and makes the train less viable.

What hasn’t changed is the cost. After adjusting for inflation, building high-speed rail lines across mountains, such as the coastal mountains between San Francisco and Los Angeles and California’s Central Valley, is still extremely expensive. Even in the relatively flat area between Tokyo and Osaka, proposals for a high-speed maglev project call for 80 percent of the route to be in tunnels. Why spend all that money when we have planes that can fly over the hills at twice the speed of the trains?

Because the regressives want to cancel the 20th century, and getting rid of planes and automobiles (except for the Crust, of course) is a big part of that.

Chaos in Calais as 150 Migrants STORM Channel Tunnel in Desperate Bid to Get Into Britain

Security inside the undersea link was once more brought into question as traffic was disruption as some 150 mainly young men tried to get on board UK-bound freight trains just after 10.30pm local time.

“From 10:30pm, around 150 migrants attempted to enter the platforms,” a Calais spokesman said.

Police confirmed: “Riot officers had to intervene to restore orde. Services were disrupted until the very early hours. There are attempts to get into the Tunnel pretty much every night, but this was one of the worse,” the spokesman added.

A Eurotunnel spokesman added that it “suffers from attempted intrusions every night”.

Sandbox

4th July 2015

Richard Fernandez looks at the oddities of modern politics.

A picture doing the rounds of Facebook  shows a picture of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas and actor George Takei, who called Thomas “a clown in blackface” for dissenting with the majority decision on gay marriage.  The caption says: “Thomas votes for the party that freed his ancestors.  Takei votes for the party that put him, personally, in an internment camp.”  The irony comes from the fact that there is often something more powerful than experience.  That impulse is the need to belong.  Intern me, only let me belong.

Powerful social movements do not promote diversity, except superficially.  What they sell is membership in a group.  That is the core product of religions, clubs, political parties — and until recently, nations.  The left is no different.  It doesn’t want its members to think independently but follow the party line, to parrot the narrative. The party line must be served, no matter when, no matter what.

Just a few hours ago an illegal immigrant gunned down a young female tourist on Embarcadero wharf.  ”The man … was in a Bay Area jail less than four months ago and should have been turned over to federal immigration officials upon his release, instead of being set free, according to the Department of Homeland Security.”  But Bay Area authorities couldn’t turn him over they explained, because it would have run counter to the prevailing political narrative.

What matters is not what you do, but who sent you.  Governors that round up illegal immigrants are accused of infringing on the federal government’s prerogative to control the borders.  But not so officials  who let illegal immigrant killers stick around to murder following “city policy”. Anyone who maintains that Obamacare is a failure will be accused of criminal right wing delusions, unless of course you’re Bernie Sanders and want to replace a failing Affordable Care Act with Single payer.  Then it’s okay. The different lies not in the act, but in the actor.
