Afghanistan: 6-year-old girl beheaded — “We are not sure if she was beheaded by her family or the Taliban”

31st August 2012

Read it.

Not that it really matters.

The Taliban might have beheaded her as a warning of what happens to those who work with the Afghan government, although this story doesn’t say whether or not her family members actually did work with the government — it only notes that about the other child who was beheaded in Afghanistan. But anyway, why might her family have beheaded her? An honor killing? Or maybe she just left the crayons out?

And what exactly are we trying to accomplish by expending our blood and treasure in this barbaric, savage land where police chiefs can casually speculate that maybe this latest beheaded six-year-old child was beheaded by her family, as if it were the sort of thing that happens every day? And in Afghanistan, maybe it is.

Academic Shills for Obama

31st August 2012

Read it.

A public university in Colorado may have violated state law by offering students course credit if they volunteered with President Obama’s re-election campaign. A blog post on the Adams State University website billed the opportunity as a “12 week long organizing internship for the Obama Campaign.”

Of course, no one would even dream of offering course credit for a Republican campaign. Perish the thought.

Tunisia: Journalists accuse Islamic supremacist rulers of clampdown on press freedom

31st August 2012

Read it.

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

Oddly enough, the same thing is happening in glorious democratic “Arab Spring” Egypt. You’d almost think it had something to do with Sharia’s restrictions on the freedom of speech. Naaah — couldn’t be. Everybody knows that democracy and pluralism are dawning in these marvelous “Arab Spring” countries!

Meanwhile, when pro-jihad “journalists” such as Christiane Amanpour, Niraj Warikoo, Dave Weigel, Kari Huus, Bob Smietana, Eli Clifton, Adam Serwer, Michael Kruse, Ken Borsuk and the rest of them (and there are hordes of them; the mainstream media hires them by the pound) see this kind of thing coming to the West, will they regret their role in demonizing and marginalizing those who were trying to resist the destruction of the freedom of speech? Actually that’s unlikely; given their editorial slant thus far, they will probably be cheering.

Crime Among African Immigrants in Victoria, Australia

 This news clip from Australian TV reports the latest official crime statistics for Victoria, which show that African immigrants, particularly those from Somalia and Sudan, are responsible for an overwhelmingly disproportionate number of crimes in their adopted home.

Obama Honored Fallen SEALs By Sending Their Parents a Form Letter Signed By Electric Pen

30th August 2012

Read it.

On August 6, 2011, 30 US service members were killed when a CH-47 Chinook helicopter they were being transported in crashed in Wardak province, Afghanistan. It was the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. 17 members of the elite Navy SEALs were killed in the crash.

Yesterday, Karen and Billy Vaughn, parents of Aaron Carson Vaughn, spoke at the Defending the Defenders forum sponsored by the Tea Party Patriots outside the RNC Convention in Tampa. Karen brought a copy of the form letter they were sent following their son’s death.

It’s a form letter.

It was signed by an electric pen.

 

Because, you know, he’s too busy spending our money and writing checks to groups like Acorn and Planned Parenthood and Solyndra to do more than that. But hey, he killed bin Laden….

Gay Marriage: 0 for 32 at the Polls

30th August 2012

Steve Sailer turns over a rock and watch what wiggles out.

Gay marriage has been put to a vote in 32 states. It is currently 0-32.

But nobody cares about that, least of all the ‘Democrat’ party.

I think that exemplifies the main driving force of modern liberalism. It’s not intellectual. In spirit, it’s more like the caste system in India. It’s a system for identifying new Untouchables whose very existence lifts the social status of the liberal. Gay marriage, for instance, is a trivial issue in real world terms, but it has become incredibly important to liberals precisely because it brands huge numbers of their fellow citizens as Dalits for them to hate and feel morally superior to.

Personally, I hate being touched by a liberal — you never know where that hand has been.

Eat the Rich?

30th August 2012

John Derbyshire, Patron Saint of Dyspepsia, takes a look at The Rich.

In which we learn that the question is not The Rich but Which Rich?

When actual yeoman farmers ceased to be much of a constituency, elements of Jeffersonian flimflam survived in the modern Democratic Party. We hear them today: Evil bankers! Predatory lenders! Wall Street paper-shufflers!

We also hear echoes of that in the modern fetish for The Family Farm, which makes about as much sense as having a similar fetish for The Hand-Made Car — yeah, you can do that, but it will cost you ten times as much, and only The Rich will be able to afford it. (As, indeed, happens today; trying buying Healthy Organic Produce at a place line Whole Foods and see how much of your paycheck is left at the end of the week. My, I’ll go to Kroger and use my Reward card to get $3-a-pound sirloin.)

You can be rich without owning an acre of land, without ever having worked or created anything, just by inheriting your money.

Though it’s hard to argue this is admirable, I can’t see that it’s deplorable. What else should happen to dad’s money? The government should take it? It is highly unlikely they would make any better use of it than the average individual. Surely it is healthy for society to contain a seasoning of persons who need not answer to anyone other than the law for their actions.

Funny how many of them turn out to be raging socialists — Are you listening, AlGore? — but I suppose it’s just guilt working its way out by making us suffer for their feelings of inadequacy (which feelings, of course, don’t extend to Giving Away The Money, any more than it does with Hollywood celebrities).

Politician Rich. This is where my blood starts to boil. Did you know that Hillary Clinton is worth $31 million? That’s without ever having done anything you or I would recognize as work. (Yeah, yeah, she lawyered; but she was the governor’s wife.)

And don’t let’s get started with the Obamas, both Barack and Michelle getting well-paying jobs basically for being Token Negroes wherever they went.

Severe Diet Doesn’t Prolong Life, at Least in Monkeys

29th August 2012

Read it.

 The results of this major, long-awaited study, which began in 1987, are finally in. But it did not bring the vindication calorie restriction enthusiasts had anticipated. It turns out the skinny monkeys did not live any longer than those kept at more normal weights. Some lab test results improved, but only in monkeys put on the diet when they were old. The causes of death — cancer, heart disease — were the same in both the underfed and the normally fed monkeys.

Heh.

How Congress Helped Cause the Doctor Shortage

29th August 2012

Read it.

With a shortage of doctors in the U.S. already and millions of new patients set to gain coverage under President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul, American medical schools are struggling to close the gap.

One major reason: The residency programs to train new doctors are largely paid for by the federal government, and the number of students accepted into such programs has been capped at the same level for 15 years. Medical schools are holding back on further expansion because the number of applicants for residencies already exceeds the available positions, according to the National Resident Matching Program, a 60-year-old Washington-based nonprofit that oversees the program.

If there’s a shortage, government is behind it.

Just the Laser Printer to Reshape Local Industry

How about when we have a ‘manufacture-on-demand’ technology? With print-on-demand, you feed the machine a formatted file and it gives you a book. If we can feed a machine a set of specifications and get a finished object, hoo boy….

‘Beware of Partisan Politics in the Classroom’

29th August 2012

Read it.

Peter Wood, President of the National Association of Scholars, catches Ohio State Professor Brian McHale with his hand in the cookie jar.

As faculty members at Ohio State last week double-checked their syllabi, glanced at their rosters, and ran through the usual routines for the start of fall courses, some of them found a surprise in their e-mail in boxes. A senior English professor invited his colleagues to open their classrooms in the weeks ahead to organizers in the Obama campaign. They would first encourage students to register to vote and then, if the instructors were willing, encourage students to volunteer for the Obama campaign.

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

You can imagine what sort of firestorm would follow an attempt by a professor to use his classroom as a recruiting ground for a Republican candidate. Chris Matthews alone would emit enough hot air to blow Hurricane Isaac back out to sea.

Low Sunspot Activity Linked to Rivers Freezing: Mini Ice Age on Way?

29th August 2012

Read it.

A team of boffins in Germany say they have found a statistical link between periods of low solar activity and very cold winters in Europe. Some physicists believe that a long period of low solar activity – like the “Maunder Minimum” of the 17th and 18th centuries – could be on the cards in coming decades, so the new research might indicate an upcoming “mini Ice Age”.

That would be entertaining, watching all of the Global Warming crowd trying to keep their heads from exploding.

Mankind Has Benefited Far More From Bill Gates Making Billions Than From Him Giving It Away.

28th August 2012

Read it.

The idea that only government can address poverty or medical research is false, and the philosophy clearly institutionalizes mob rule. When one man can be made a sacrifice for another, you’re either predator or prey. Each individual’s life becomes chum to be “the public good” whatever central planners in Washington decide that might be.

What results is a society built not on mutual benefit, as with capitalism, but mutual contempt, whereas one is endlessly forced to sacrifice for “the public” with the only hope that one day others will be conscripted to sacrifice themselves for you. Social Security and Medicare are just two examples of this multi-generational feudalism.

Barack Obama Warns Residents as Isaac Upgraded to Hurricane

Because, you know, if he didn’t, then they would just ignore it, having no experience of hurricanes on the Gulf coast.

Are Fuel Standards the Next No Child Left Behind?

28th August 2012

Half Sigma asks an obvious question.

Just as it was impossible to make all children proficient in reading and writing just by saying it’s going to happen, it’s also impossible to make the average car and truck get 54.5 mile per gallon by 2025 (unless we are talking about only making electric cars).

How close will we get to this train wreck? Probably not very far if Romney is elected president, because he will hopefully have the common sense to reverse these rules which were set by executive decision and not by any statutes passed by Congress.

“Thirteen major automakers, including General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, have endorsed the new standards.” They figure they are an oligopoly so they will make money no matter what happens, as long as they stand together.

For the Left, passing a regulation is like wishing upon a star — that’s all it takes.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true….

The Anti-Imperialism of Fools

28th August 2012

Read it.

Here is Judith Butler’s response, with the missing context included.

“Understanding Hamas/Hezbollah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the left, that are part of a global left, is extremely important. That does not stop us from being critical of certain dimensions of both movements. It doesn’t stop those of us who are interested in non-violent politics from raising the question of whether there are other options besides violence.”

It’s only fair to point out that she says she’s not a supporter of violent resistance. And that’s all fine and good. But Hamas and Hezbollah both explicitly say, in Arabic and in English, that they seek the destruction of Israel. There is no non-violent way to destroy a country.

I’d like to ask her, though, what makes Hezbollah a “progressive social movement”? Because it builds hospitals and schools? That hardly makes a movement “progressive.” Has any modern political entity not built hospitals and schools when it had power? Adolf Hitler built hospitals and schools, as did everyone from Augusto Pinochet to Georgios Papadopoulos. So what?

Hezbollah is notoriously hostile to every social value liberals and progressives hold dear, from women’s rights to gay rights, with one exception. Hezbollah says the United States and Israel are the Great Satan and the Little Satan. That’s it. That, all by itself, is enough to get a socially retrograde totalitarian terrorist organization labeled “progressive” even by a professor who adheres to non-violent politics.

An Alien Pod Person in a Room Full of Leftists

28th August 2012

Read it.

How did we get to this point? The way I remember things, the left used to be the chin-scratching, idea-weighing side where dissent was encouraged. I don’t think my views have changed. I still hate the government and despite the laughter it brings, I’d still call myself a feminist. The problem is, when the president is black and the fanatics who are oppressing women are brown, it’s racist to complain about the government and religion. The left went from thinking outside the box to becoming myopically fixated on anything that sounds mean or benefits “white males” (AKA someone who reminds them of dad). What remains is a sea of knee-jerk liberals who aren’t just intolerant of other points of view, they literally can’t handle the truth.

Welcome to the modern world. Be careful not to step in the diversity.

The Enduring Dangerous Legacy of the Sixties New Left

28th August 2012

Ron Radosh, a convert from communism, would like to remind us that this particular brand of stupidity is still with us.

He goes on to say that “Much of what is said and done by today’s left—including its ‘anti-Zionism’—is unintelligible without grasping that when ‘anti-imperialist struggle’ displaced ‘class struggle’ as the organizing category of thought and the basis of political identity.” After 1967, that outlook quickly became the necessity of branding the Israelis as “the new Nazis,” and the supposedly oppressed Palestinians as the “new Jews.”

Today, it is that SDS mentality — not that of Johnson and Berman — that makes up the contemporary Left’s ideology. And because the liberals adhered to the doctrine of “no enemies on the Left,” Voegeli adds,  the “respectable liberals couldn’t bring themselves to criticize the tame activists, who couldn’t bring themselves to dissociate from the fierce ones.” Thus, Voegeli writes, “the 60’s liberals in academia, journalism and politics fawned over the New Left radicals who delighted in tormenting them.”  After all, they thought they had a common enemy with the New Left, even though they opposed their tactics. And, worse than the New Left was the boogeyman of the Right. Hence they had a corollary to their doctrine, that of “no allies on the Right.”

The truth is that today’s liberals never came to terms with the legacy of the New Left, just as many Germans for a long time failed to come to terms with the Third Reich. Voegeli is on the mark when he writes: “The radical fringe wanted to live outside the law and also inside the law. Respectable liberals wanted to let them. They lent a hand by praising the radicals with faint damns, then quickly changing the subject to the extenuating circumstances that rendered the fringe’s deeds kinda-sorta understandable, acceptable, and even admirable.”

Maryland’s Unconstitutional School Discipline Quotas

28th August 2012

Read it.

Crimes and infractions are not evenly distributed across racial groups, as the Supreme Court noted in United States v. Armstrong, 517 U.S. 456 (1996).  As that 8-to-1 Supreme Court ruling noted, there is no legal “presumption that people of all races commit all types of crimes” at the same rate, since such a presumption is “contradicted by” real world data, in which “more than 90% of” convicted cocaine traffickers “were black” in 1994, and “93.4% of convicted LSD dealers were white.”  But the Maryland Board of Education has chosen to ignore reality by proposing a rule that would require school systems to discipline and suspend students in numbers correlated to their race, and require school systems that currently don’t do so to implement plans to eliminate any racially “disproportionate impact” over a three-year period.  Thus, it is imposing quotas in all but name.

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

The fact that a higher percentage of black students are suspended than whites in most schools reflects greater infraction rates associated with poverty and single-parent households — not racism against minorities by school officials.  As a scholar at the Brookings Institution notes, “children who spend time in single-parent families are more likely to misbehave, get sick, drop out of high school and be unemployed.”  As the federal CDC notes, while most whites and Asians are born to two-parent families, most blacks and other minority groups are born out of wedlock.

Note the clever way they dance around the truth — that black culture is corrupt, and promotes and sustains socially dysfunctional behavior in its children — under the mealy-mouthed discussion of ‘poverty’ and ‘single-parent households’ … treating the symptoms as if it were the disease.

Steve Sailer On David Maraniss’s BARACK OBAMA: THE STORY—Boring, But Inadvertently Revealing

28th August 2012

A review.

Maraniss is not at all happy about the curious fact that Obama skeptics seem to like to read about Obama more than Obama supporters do.

Hey – he’s the Magic Negro. What more do you need to know?

Obama possesses an impressive understanding of the conventional wisdom. But he seems averse to original thought.

Of course. Original thought is risky and might disturb the Faithful. Better to fit himself into the stereotypes and become the Obamassiah than strike out on his on and impair his career prospects.

Time and again, Maraniss reassures us that Obama was never quite as leftist as all of his Marxist Muslim millionaire buddies from Pakistan. Well, okay …

Yeah, that would take commitment and passion, two characteristics that seem absent from Obama’s character except when it comes to himself and his own advancement.
