South African State Broadcaster Bans Negative News About Embattled President Zuma

28th June 2016

Staff at The South African Broadcasting Corporation were reportedly told that at least 80 per cent of all news coverage had to be positive, and that negative stories around the president were banned.

South Africa is well on its way to being Just Another Corrupt African Dictatorship.

An example of why having one government-controlled news service is a Bad Idea. (Yeah, I’m looking at you, Britain.)

Statist France Is Collapsing

27th June 2016

Read it.

Although a state of emergency has been declared since the jihadist massacres in Paris last November, street riots are still rampant and demonstrations ubiquitous.

The socialist cabinet was unable to pass new labor legislation in a socialist-dominated parliament, and had to resort to Article 49-3: a constitutional provision similar to what is known in America as an executive order.

Anti-Fascists ‘Very Proud’ of White Nationalist Counter-Protest That Led to Multiple Stabbing Victims

27th June 2016

Read it.

At least five people were stabbed in a statehouse skirmish between members of the white-nationalist Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) and “anti-fascist” activists from a group called By Any Means Necessary (BAMN). The white-power group had gotten a permit and was demonstrating in front of the California capitol. BAMN members came brandishing wooden bats and shouting “fuck fascists. Beat the fascists. Beat them.” One member Yvette Felarca told CNN she was “very, very proud” of the counter-protest that had produced such violence.

“We’ve got to build a movement in this nation,” said Felarca, noting that her group was full of people of many races and sexual orientations “standing together saying we will not accept or allow racist, genocide organizing to take place on the front steps of the capitol of California. And we would do it again.”

Well. There it is.

I say we give them a plethora of non-projectile weapons and let them go at it. Survivors get ‘bragging rights’.

Think of it as evolution  in action.

Pregnant Woman Stabbed by Boyfriend Was ‘Saved by Her Breast Implants’

24th June 2016

Read it.

That’s a headline you don’t see every day.

Babur Raja grabbed Ms Queiroz, who had been on the way to meet him at the bank, from behind and stabbed her repeatedly in the chest and stomach, cut her wrists and attempted to slit her throat.

Yeah, immigration has really been a boon to Britain.

Raja’s barrister said the attack was the result of family problems and that his conservative mother had “literally driven him mad”.

Yeah, that’s the ticket. Blame it on Mum.

She added: “His mother had not been happy he was in a relationship with a white woman, and told him he must leave her or she would not be in contact.”

Oh, Mum’s a racist, too. But racism against ‘white women’ is okay, so she gets a pass.

“This man of impeccable character is driven literally to distraction, forced by his own mother to choose between her and his chosen partner and their unborn baby.”

I guess getting your girlfriend pregnant with no apparent intention to marry qualifies as ‘impeccable character’ in the New Britain.

“As far as myself, our families and all our friends are concerned, Bobby and I had an exceptionally happy and loving relationship, living together and looking forward to the birth of our daughter – his first child – a child he very much wanted right from the start of the relationship.

“The attack he committed on me was completely unprovoked and totally unexpected.”

Girl, you need to get a clue.

Democrats: We Will Overcome the Constitution

24th June 2016

Read it.

Nothing stirs the passions of Democrats these days quite like the prospect of gutting the Constitution. In an unprecedented act of pretend political bravery, House members held a catered sit-in, demanding that Republicans allow a vote to strip away protections of Second, Fifth and Sixth Amendments of the Constitution. It was quite the scene.

There were the selfie-happy Democrats singing “We Shall Overcome” while demanding passage of a bill that those right-wing nutjobs over at the American Civil Liberties Union have “strongly” argued would undermine civil liberties. As of this writing, no participant has been beaten down by the cops or thrown into a dank cell, although iPhones were probably getting perilously low on juice for those who’d forgotten their chargers.

On its surface this sounds ridiculous, and to any rational impartial observer it is — invoking classic tactics and tropes of the Civil Rights movement in support of measures attempting to infringe Constitutional rights. But Democrats can’t be fazed by the cart being in front of the horse; they don’t even see it. Modern Democrats are ‘progressives’, and ‘progressives’ MUST have change, because without change there is no progress; hence the Constitution, which stands in the way of change, must be eroded until it is gone, gone, gone.

Civil rights-era heroes like Rep. John Lewis, who lent his considerable legacy to this vacuous grandstanding, was once on the terror watch list himself. He didn’t know how he got on it. He didn’t know how to get off of it. Yet, today he believes this Kafkaesque system is a sound way to deny his fellow citizens their rights.

I am perfectly comfortable with Congressman Lewis being on a terrorist watch list, considering some of the idiotic initiatives to which he has lent his support since he started coasting to fame and fortune on his Civil Rights record. That doesn’t mean that he ought to lose his right to keep and bear arms.

Die-versity: 64% of Last 25 Mass Shooters Were Ethnically Diverse

23rd June 2016

Steve Sailer gives us the numbers.

Kamikaze killers are aptly named, in that they are largely committed by foreign or non-traditional Americans.

In the last ten years, there have been 16 mass shootings/bombings by non-whites, primarily immigrants and/or muslims — most of which targeted whites. There were 9 mass shooting by whites, only two of which were racially motivated. Contrary to the current narrative, whites are significantly overrepresented as *victims* and underrepresented as perpetrators.

What Will Gun Controllers Do When Americans Ignore an ‘Assault Weapons’ Ban?

21st June 2016

Read it.

Prohibition was kneecapped by Americans’ widespread refusal to stop producing, selling, and drinking booze. Millions of Americans smoked marijuana decades before majority sentiment creeped toward legalizing the stuff. Gays and lesbians not only surreptitiously lived and loved when they were targeted by the law—they also famously (and righteously) stomped cops who raided the Stonewall Inn, ultimately precipitating liberalization. And restrictions on exporting encryption were eased only after cryptographers illegally exported code—even printing it on T-shirts as an act of civil disobedience.

Those who have a touchingly naive faith in the power of government cling to the conviction that Passing A Law will solve a problem, automagically. If that were true, then there wouldn’t be a War on Drugs.

“Those who defend the easy accessibility of assault weapons should meet these families and explain why that makes sense,” President Obama tut-tutted last week. But the moralizer-in-chief failed to make sense himself, calling for the outlawing of a category of devices that doesn’t really exist.

The failure of Obama to actually connect with reality is almost universal.

That gun owners mean what they say in the “assault weapons” context can be inferred from the 5 percent compliance rate achieved by New York’s recent registration requirement for such firearms. Or from the 15 percent compliance rate in neighboring Connecticut.

When New Jersey went a step further and banned the sale and possession of “assault weapons,” 947 people registered their rifles as sporting guns for target shooting, 888 rendered them inoperable, and four surrendered them to the police. That’s out of an estimated 100,000 to 300,000 firearms affected by the law. The New York Times concluded, a bit drily, “More than a year after New Jersey imposed the toughest assault-weapons law in the country, the law is proving difficult if not impossible to enforce.”

Chicago’s Most Wiolent Neighborhoods Grace for Deadly Summer

21st June 2016

Read it.

Shaquisha Gibson-Posey pulls out a grisly cellphone photo of her murdered brother whenever her 15-year-old son complains of being cooped up in the house. This is why you can’t go out in the neighborhood this summer, she tells him.

Treshaun Carr takes special precautions when he walks down the street, walking only on the driver’s side of parked cars so it’s less likely someone can jump out and shoot him.

Miyoshi Bates was sad but relieved when her son decided not to come home from his out-of-state college when classes ended last month.

Summer is arriving in Chicago, and those who live in the city’s most violent neighborhoods are bracing for what comes with it: a better chance of getting killed.

Black Lives Matter — except to Democrats like Rahm Emmanuel.

Thank God for Chicago’s strict gun control laws or the place would wind up like Texas.

Academic Brownshirts March Again

20th June 2016

Read it.

Over the last few weeks we’ve offered various academic absurdities, drawn from the fine work of the Twitter account of RealPeerReview. The anonymous person behind this Twitter account posted abstracts from publicly available academic journals. And that was precisely the problem: the mere exposure of the mediocre and politicized “scholarship” that emerges from the campus dens of identity politics is all that is necessary for the wider world to see how preposterous it is.

Apparently even the academic crusaders against the neo-liberal cis-patriarchy don’t actually want people reading their junk either, because, as the Daily Caller reports, the RealPeerReview Twitter feed has been shut down amidst threats to expose the identity of the person behind it (who is apparently an academic social scientist).

The Clinton Foundation has accepted millions from Middle Eastern and other foreign governments that criminalize homosexuality – but prominent gay rights groups in America have stayed silent on the apparent disconnect between Hillary Clinton’s rhetoric and the donations.

“Unquestionably, they’re not standing up for their principles,” said Human Rights Foundation President Thor Halvorssen.

Double standard? That would imply some sort of standard at all.

I’m Former NYPD: Here’s Why I Suspect There Was More Than One Shooter In Orlando

17th June 2016

Read it.

In my professional opinion, one shooter would have had a very hard time inflicting the amount of casualties we saw at Pulse Nightclub.

Yet there is no indication that the terrorist possessed that level of athleticism or ever even visited a shooting range. And he only purchased the guns used a short time before the shooting. He was not very familiar with them. In terms of accepted and recognized training doctrine, he was a step one beginner.

A Sig Sauer MCX, fires a 5.56mm NATO round, or its .223 caliber civilian variant. Magazines typically hold either 20 or 30 rounds depending on your preference. If ballistics determines this to be the primary weapon used in the attack, that would imply a minimum of four to five reloads without any patrons attempting to stop the shooter. But again, that would also imply a nearly 100 percent accuracy rate. Something unheard of even for those aforementioned world class shooters.

A Glock 17 has a magazine capacity of 17 rounds plus one chambered for an 18 round total. If this firearm is determined to be the primary weapon used, that would imply five reloads under stress and again, accuracy rates not achievable by the best CQB marksmen on the planet. It would also imply a consistent level of efficacy from the nine millimeter round never before recorded.

Now, assuming the terrorist’s marksmanship and tactical ability rivaled that of the typical NYC police officer shooting under stress, that would suggest that he would have been carrying at least 500 rounds of ammunition, or 20 to 25 magazines of minimum. This in addition to a rifle and handgun. And it would also assume that he was able to carry all of that gear dressed in a way that would not have raised suspicion on a hot June evening/early morning in Florida.

The current “lone wolf” narrative is asking me and others with related experience to suspend belief and plausibility to a level at which I am extremely uncomfortable. When you eliminate all plausible explanations in an investigation, you begin asking other questions.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

17th June 2016

Read it.

Police in Regina, Saskatchewan, have come up with a nifty way to raise money. They pose an undercover officer as a homeless person next to an intersection holding a sign. When drivers stopped at the intersection try to give him money, they have to take off their seat belts to reach across the seat. A few minutes later, another officer pulls the drivers over and hands each a $175 ticket for a seat belt violation.

That’ll teach ’em.

Anarchy in the U.S.A.

Steve Sailer understands the dialectic.

The latest Muslim massacre has driven the mainstream media absolutely berserk with fear and loathing…but not, though, of the Muslim terrorist who murdered 49 Latino gays in Florida. Instead, the bad guy is Donald Trump for having been demonstrated to be right about immigration policy.

Of course, Trump’s pragmatism was also calibrated to drive mad with rage the bipartisan Washington establishment that has grown rich off the conventional wisdom of Invade the World/Invite the World.

Five Teens Shot Near Playground in East Flatbush Over Stolen Designer Bag

14th June 2016

Read it.

New York Police Department officials said the shooting took place at Avenue D in front of the Harry Maze Playground in East Flatbush at 5pm. The teens, who were aged 15 to 18-years-old, were playing basketball when a designer bookbag went missing.

When no one confessed to stealing the MCM bag, which typically cost more than $500 each, one man left the scene and returned with several friends, one of whom opened fire on the teenagers, PIX11 reports.

Thank God for those strict New York City gun control laws, or the place would look like Texas.

A 16-year-old was shot in the cheek, another 16-year-old was shot in the leg, a 15-year-old suffered a shot to the finger, a 17-year-old suffered a graze wound to the neck, and an 18-year-old was shot in the abdomen, NYPD Detective Hubert Reyes told The Independent.

I’m looking for condemnations of the NRA, calls for unity, a statement by the President, and tweets of support from around the world, and I’m not finding any.

Brutal Realities

13th June 2016

Read it.

On CNN and Fox News, one politician after another professed to be “shocked” by the massacre in Orlando. “Who would have expected such a thing?” people kept asking. Actually, I’ve been expecting just such a thing for years. The only shock was that it took this long for some jihadist to go after a gay establishment.

Islamic law, after all, is crystal clear on homosexuality, though the various schools of sharia prescribe a range of penalties: one calls for death by stoning; another demands that the transgressor be thrown from a high place; a third says to drop a building on him. In Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Yemen, Mauritania, Pakistan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, as well as in parts of Nigeria, Somalia, Syria and Iraq, homosexuality is indeed punishable by death.

And yet homosexuals and feminists give Muslims a pass that they wouldn’t give their own countrymen. Gee, I wonder why?

Incredibly, many gays still don’t get this—or refuse to get it. They cling—mindlessly, one wants to say—to leftist ideology, which tells them that Muslims, like gays, are an official victim group, and thus their natural allies. They see Christians as their enemies—though even the most aggressively antigay Christians in America, namely the “God hates fags” crowd at the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, don’t go around killing anybody. Perversely, some gays support the BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) movement, which demonizes the only gay-friendly country in the Middle East. Some even buy into the concept of “pinkwashing”—the inane assertion, promoted by radical lesbian playwright Sarah Schulman, that Israel advertises its own gay-positive values as a means of covering up its supposed oppression of Palestinians. On this day of horror, let’s hope that the jihadist massacre of 50 people in a gay club in Orlando finally awakens gay Americans to the brutal reality of Islam’s hatred for them.

Mexplaining Mexican Pride

13th June 2016

Jim Goad is fed up.

The most feral and violent contingent of anti-Trump protestors appears to consist of unabashed Mexican supremacists falsely accusing Trump of being a white supremacist. They are so irreparably dim that they appear to believe that by stomping on cars, throwing rocks at police, and sucker-punching white people, they will finally quell all doubt about whether they deserve to be here.

Who knows? In these degenerate modern times, they may be right.

Behold the parallel-universe specter of hateful assholes hatefully screaming and hatefully attacking people while toting placards that read STOP THE HATE. Even more absurd is the specter of people who ran screaming from the flaming abyss that is Mexico proudly waving Mexican flags in the USA.

Such is the world we live in.

San Jose’s police chief Eddie Garcia told his men not to intervene in the violence. He implausibly claimed that 250 cops were unable to handle an estimated 400 rioters. He is also, as luck would have it, a proud supporter of La Raza. In other words, a Latino cop who supports a pro-Mexican racial-identity group told his men to stand and watch while Mexicans beat up white people. San Jose’s Latino mayor blamed the violence on Trump rather than the actual perpetrators of the violence.

Welcome to Mexifornia.

The question begs itself, and I’m hardly the first to ask it: If you’re so proud of Mexico and America maltreats you so horribly, why are you here?

“Green” Millennials Set New Standards in Wasteful Consumerism

12th June 2016

Read it.

As a climate skeptic I couldn’t care less about recycling, carbon footprints, “lights on” Earth Hour, or any of the other claptrap associated with the green religion. But the breathtakingly wasteful lifestyle choices of the allegedly green “Millennials” put my efforts to enjoy the advantages of consumerist living to shame.

Sure, it’s fun to slag on Millenials, but they grew up in a world far different from those who love to beat on them. My generation ate cereal for breakfast because it was less work than a cooked breakfast, which was the only alternative. (No Egg McMuffin’s in the ’50s.)  Millenials are making the same choices, but with a different range of options. I can get the cereal box out, get out a bowl, pour the cereal into the bowl, get out the milk, pour the milk on the cereal, put the milk back in the fridge, get out a spoon, sit down, eat the cereal, put the bowl and spoon on the counter or in the dishwasher OR I can grab an Egg McMuffin (or — shudder — a ‘breakfast taco’), eat it while travelling or doing something else, and throw the wrapper in the trash. The difference in convenience is the same as the difference between a fixed land-line phone versus a cell phone.

Laid-Off Americans, Required to Zip Lips on Way Out, Grow Bolder

11th June 2016

Read it.

American corporations are under new scrutiny from federal lawmakers after well-publicized episodes in which the companies laid off American workers and gave the jobs to foreigners on temporary visas.

But while corporate executives have been outspoken in defending their labor practices before Congress and the public, the American workers who lost jobs to global outsourcing companies have been largely silent.

Until recently. Now some of the workers who were displaced are starting to speak out, despite severance agreements prohibiting them from criticizing their former employers.

Such agreements are almost universal — sign and get money, don’t and walk bare. If you don’t sign, they know you’re going to sue, so they have notice.

Approved for All Audiences

9th June 2016

Hollywood is under high pressure from various left-wing groups to bring its business fully in line with political correctness. After the Southern California ACLU claimed that the movie industry didn’t have enough female directors, no fewer than two federal agencies launched investigations into Tinseltown’s hiring practices. Blacks have threatened to boycott the Academy Awards if the Motion Picture Academy doesn’t start handing out Affirmative Action Oscars. And Twitter pests are pushing studios to make Captain America gay, Princess Elsa lesbian, and James Bond female.

In response, one of Hollywood’s top studios has now announced plans for a new tentpole picture scheduled for release next Kwaanza—a superhero extravaganza entitled Social Justice League of America: Age of Imaginary Problems. The blockbuster will be written and directed by Lena Dunham, who will also play the lead role of Cecily Shrillwine.

Pipe Bomb Explosion Injures Adolescent in Burlington

Starting stopwatch to see how long it takes some ‘journalist’ to blame Trump.

Three people — a young woman and two male passengers — were driving in a car from Interstate 189 to Shelburne Road, on their way to the beach, police say, when the explosion occurred inside the vehicle, Police Chief Brandon del Pozo said.

All three were adolescents. Their names and other information were not immediately released.

One of the male passengers was holding the small device when it detonated inside the new, two-door Kia sedan, which still had paper tags. The vehicle pulled into the Shelburne Road Plaza, and the occupants called police.

Well, perhaps they were just celebrating Ramadan. I’ve heard that pipe bombs are popular for that.

Clinton University Scandal?

Everyone knows about the problems with Trump University. Trump should just be glad that Trump U didn’t have a Division I NCAA football team, or else he might well have Title IX complaints to go with the class action civil suit.

But did you know that Bill Clinton was a university chancellor? I didn’t either. There he is, over to the left. Moreover, he was paid $16 million by Laureate International Universities to be their “honorary” chancellor. Just think how much Slick Willie could have pulled down if he’d been a real chancellor. Just what is Laureate International University? It’s the parent company of Walden University, a mostly online, for-profit diploma mill that is facing the same kind of civil suits and fraud allegations as Trump University. Funny how the media seems to be uninterested in this story.

Response to Goldberg

8th June 2016

Read it.

According to the available metrics, the most-read JAG post to date—by a significant margin—has been “Trump and the Judge.” We think it’s a pretty good post. But still. This fact alone would seem to vindicate our contention that all is not well with America or with conservative intellectualism. Or, to be less circumspect, that America has become, or is well on the way to becoming—in the classic sense—a corrupt republic.

Here’s what’s really going on. The old American ideal of judging individuals and not groups, content-of-character-not-color-of-skin, is dead, dead, dead. Dead as a matter of politics, policy and culture. The left plays by new rules. The right still plays by the old rules. The left laughs at us for it—but also demands that we keep to that rulebook. They don’t even bother to cheat. They proclaim outright that “these rules don’t apply to our side.” They can be openly biased, and justly so, because of past injustice, present white privilege and so on. But for the right, it’s always 1963. And not the actual 1963 (which was bad) but the 1963 of the March on Washington and the “I Have a Dream” speech (one of the greatest ever, by the way), as if it were actually the law of the land right now. Which, of course, it isn’t.

Somebody Is Stealing All the Beehives

7th June 2016

Read it.

Urban beekeeping has grown in popularity in recent years and so, it seems, has another bee-related activity: stealing beehives. During peak pollination season in California this year, 1,734 hives have been filched. The victims, however, are not amateur beekeepers, but almond growers who ship in bees pollinate their orchards. The perpetrators are, of course, beekeepers, because nobody else knows how to deal with beehives (or, frankly, has much desire to go near them). “Someone who knows how to handle them can move 200 hives in a matter of minutes,” says a detective at the Butte County Sheriff’s Office, where hive thefts have doubled in the past year. Someday, and probably someday soon, this is going to make a great and weird heist movie.

Watch for the government to mandate each individual bee getting a tiny serial number, as they want to do with bullets.

Trump and the Judge

7th June 2016

Lion of the Blogosphere puts it in a nutshell for your convenience.

The judge, Gonzalo Curiel, is a member of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. Anti-Trumpers will say that doesn’t mean anything, that it’s just a Latino lawyers association. But if they are just a Latino lawyers association, then that’s what they should have called themselves. By choosing the name “La Raza” they open themselves to legitimate speculation that they share the radical left-wing pro-immigrant anti-American-citizen anti-white politics of the National Council of La Raza.

It’s easy to see why a judge with leftwing pro-immigrant politics would be unable to fairly judge Donald Trump. And Trump has a constitutional right to due process of law, and the legal process allows a litigant to request a new judge.

Minorities routinely claim that they can’t be fairly judged by a white judiciary, and a white judge who joined a “white lawyers association” would surely be kicked off the bench for being a “racist,” so there is clearly a PC double standard here. But that’s not the argument Trump is making. It’s not that the judge can’t fairly judge his case because they are different races, but because of different political views.

‘La Raza’ is apparently Spanish for ‘The Race’ and hence, in my view, an explicitly racist organization. If they weren’t Fashionable Minorities, such explicitly racist ‘minority’ organizations (Yeah, I’m lookin’ at you, NAACP) would get the same treatment as Aryan Nations and the KKK. But in this degenerate modern world, not so much.

Ex-Secret Service Agent Blows Whistle on Hillary

6th June 2016

Read it.

In a few weeks, Crisis of Character by former Secret Service agent Gary Byrne, a “tell-all” book about Hillary’s time at the White House, will be released.

“What I saw [at the White House] in the 1990s sickened me,” says Byrne. “I want you to hear my story.”

Indeed, Hillary would seem to require a veritable Mormon Tabernacle Choir of whistleblowing.

Perth Shark Attack: Woman Diver Dies in Second Fatal Incident in a Week

5th June 2016

Read it.

“The other boat that was in the water was five-and a half metres long”, Police Inspector Mulligan said. “And they say that the shark was longer than their boat.

Five and a half meters is over 18 feet. A shark that long would be about six feet broad and four feet thick. We’re talking JAWS territory here.

The woman was the second person killed by a shark in Western Australia in less than a week.

This is God telling you to Take the Hint.

Scott Adams Makes His Pick

5th June 2016

Read it.

So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety. Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

As I have often said, I have no psychic powers and I don’t know which candidate would be the best president. But I do know which outcome is most likely to get me killed by my fellow citizens. So for safety reason, I’m on team Clinton.

Donald Trump: Anti-Trump Protesters Were ‘Paid Agitators’ Sent by Democrats

5th June 2016

Read it.

And once again Trump has the gall to say what everybody knows but won’t say.

I doubt very much that they had to be paid. A word in the right ear was undoubtedly sufficient. ‘Will no one rid me of this troublesome Trump?’

Nixonian Palace Guard Now Protects Hillary

5th June 2016

Jonathan Turley points out the parallels.

It has taken almost 50 years, but the Democrats have finally found their inner Nixon. Make no mistake about it: Hillary Clinton is the most Nixonian figure in the post-Watergate period. Indeed, Democrats appear to have reached the type of moral compromise that Nixon waited, unsuccessfully, for Republicans to accept: Some 71% of Democrats want Clinton to run even if indicted.

Bill Clinton was a more successful Nixon than Nixon ever tried to be, because Nixon was a product of an earlier time and had some shame, whereas Bill Clinton never did.

While Obama could be criticized for embracing Nixon’s imperial presidency model, his personality could not be more different from his predecessor. Clinton however is the whole Nixonian package. On a policy level, her predilection for using executive and military power is even coupled with praise for (and from) Nixon’s secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. However, it is on a personality level that the comparison is so striking and so unnerving. Clinton, like Nixon, is known to be both secretive and evasive. She seems to have a compulsive resistance to simply acknowledging conflicting facts or changes in position. She only makes admissions against interest when there is no alternative to acknowledging the truth in a controversy.

Hillary is trying to be a cheap copy of Bill and will end up being merely a cheap copy of Nixon, taking the present Democrat party down with her.

It is certainly true that Washington’s powerful have always attracted a circle of sycophants. Indeed, the most powerful figures often seem to need continual stroking from underlings and there can be a race to the bottom as aides outdo each other in their adoring rhetoric.

Whenever I see a ‘James Bond Supervillain’ in a movie, I always wonder where they find the untold millions of loyal minions by which they are invariably supported. The answer is: They are all around you.

Sailing Ships Back In Vogue As A Green Alternative To Conventional Shipping

5th June 2016

Read it.

Chronicling another step in the ‘progressive’ program to cancel the 20th century.

Martyn Heighton, head of National Historic Ships, an advisory body that reports to the Department for Culture, Media & Sport, thinks the market will expand. “There is growing trade for symbolic cargos,” he said.

I love that — ‘symbolic cargoes’. You don’t actually have to do anything, just embrace a token of your Political Correctness.

Next step is undoubtedly streets full of horse manure.

‘Social Justice’ and the End of Fun

4th June 2016

The Other McCaine laments his lost youth.

Today I was scrolling around feminist sites when I saw another angry young Tumblrina ranting about the patriarchy (because a guy was rude on the subway) and it hit me why this bothers me so much: When I was a teenager, life was fun because America was a free country.

Don’t get me wrong. There was plenty of misery and loneliness in the world during the 1970s, but people didn’t have to tiptoe around in fear they might say something “offensive” to somebody. In fact, America in the 1970s was arguably a Golden Age of free expression. The great convulsive upheaval of the 1960s — stuff that happened while I was in elementary school — had the effect of undoing many of the constraints on art, music, literature, movies and TV that had previously imposed limits on what you could say or write. So when I was a teenager, my buddies and I could listen to comedy albums by George Carlin, Richard Pryor and Cheech and Chong saying stuff that was hilarious in part because it was stuff you weren’t supposed to say. We went to the movies and saw Blazing Saddles, Kentucky Fried Movie and Animal House — movies that were a deliberate poke in the eye of “good taste.” National Lampoon was full of wicked satire, “Doctor Demento” was on the radio every week, Saturday Night Live was in its glory days and, for anyone with a sense of humor, the 1970s was a great decade to be alive, because there were no rules.

I remember those days. Good times.

This is what Milo Yiannopoulos and the “Dangerous Faggot” tour is all about. Milo doesn’t even have to say anything to spark a left-wing riot on university campuses. His mere existence offends progressives so much that you could shut down any college in America for a day, merely by announcing that Milo would be there. If he missed his flight and didn’t even show up for the speech, you’d still have a bunch of angry fat girls with bad hair stomping around campus chanting stupid slogans, claiming to be “traumatized” by the thought that someone who disagreed with them had been invited to speak. So if Milo missed a connecting flight in Atlanta or Chicago, he’d still be trying to get a new ticket and meanwhile, outside the university auditorium 800 miles away, protesters would be screaming themselves hoarse in paroxysms of rage for no reason at all.
