Anti-Abortion Activists Face Dubious Eavesdropping Charges in California

29th March 2017

Read it.

Yesterday California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced 15 felony charges against two anti-abortion activists, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, in connection with their hidden-camera recordings of conversations with Planned Parenthood employees they sought to implicate in the illegal sale of fetal tissue. “The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” Becerra declared. “We will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”

The right to freedom of the press, which Daleiden and Merritt claim they were exercising, is also foundational in a free democratic society, and it conflicts with California’s dubious definition of the right to privacy. That conflict is especially troubling when law enforcement officials use privacy as a pretext to attack political opponents, which is what seems to be happening in this case.

The situation can be clarified by supposing that the people involved were DemLegHump Media ‘investigative journalists’ — 60 Minutes, say — looking into some accusation of the Koch brothers. It is immediately obvious that it such a situation the politician(s) involved would hail it and castigate any such prosecution a direct threat to the Constitution.

Whoopi Wrongly Insists Fox Pushed Birtherism; the Network Actually Debunked It

29th March 2017

Read it.

The major defect of the Chattering Class of the Left that inhabits the DemLegHump Media is the rock-ribbed assumption that anyone who is unsound on one aspect of the proglodyte religion is therefore ipso facto unsound on every other aspect of the proglodyte religion.

This assumption operates so automatically that there isn’t even a shred of a pretense of checking what the actual facts of the matter might be — witness the ritual denunciations of Trump as racist and sexist and homophobic in the face of pretty clear evidence that he’s actually pretty indifferent on those issues.

And, when (as in this case) the evidence is clear, it is just ignored — ‘who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?’

Once We Listened to the Beatles. Now We Eat Beetles.

29th March 2017

Tyler Cowen looks at what the Crust obsesses about these days.

Since the 1960s and ’70s, food has replaced music’s centrality to American culture. These are invariably somewhat subjective impressions, but I’d like to lay out my sense of how the social impact of music has fallen and the social role of food has risen.

Most of the top music from the 1990s, such as say Alanis Morissette, would sound current if released today, a sign of cultural stasis in what was once a highly socially charged and rapidly changing sector. In 1967, music from 20 or even 10 years earlier sounded quite different and indeed archaic.

Restaurants are increasingly an organizing and revitalizing force in our cities, and eating out has continued to rise as a means of socializing. America’s educated professional class may be out of touch with sports and tired of discussing the weather, and so trading information about new or favorite restaurants, or recipes and ingredients, has become one of the new all-purpose topics of conversation. Food is a relatively gender-neutral topic, and furthermore immigrant newcomers can be immediately proud of what they know and have eaten.

How Utah Keeps the American Dream Alive

28th March 2017

Megan McArdle visits America for Bloomberg News.

There’s no getting around it: For a girl raised on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Salt Lake City is a very weird place.

I went to Utah precisely because it’s weird. More specifically, because economic data suggest that modest Salt Lake City, population 192,672, does something that the rest of us seem to be struggling with: It helps people move upward from poverty. I went to Utah in search of the American Dream.

Columnists don’t talk as much as they used to about the American Dream. They’re more likely to talk about things like income mobility, income inequality, the Gini coefficient?—?sanitary, clinical terms. These are easier to quantify than a dream, but also less satisfying. We want money, yes, but we hunger even more deeply for something else: for possibility. It matters to Americans that someone born poor can retire rich. That possibility increasingly seems slimmer and slimmer in most of the nation, but in Utah, it’s still achievable.

‘Sanctuary’ Cities

28th March 2017

You will have noticed, if you have been paying attention, that the loudest clamoring about being ‘sanctuary cities’ comes from yuppie hipster enclaves like San Francisco or Malibu or West Palm Beach or Manhattan. The reason for this is that the Upper Crust can’t afford to lose their Underclass dependents, upon whom they rely for domestic servants, nannies and housekeepers and yardboys and such.

Scrape off the icing of virtue-posturing and that’s all it is. Those who scream loudest about ‘living wage’ are the same ones who are ready to die in the last ditch to continue paying their illegal servitors a less-than-market wage for their Upper Crust lifestyle.

So, as with any other area of life, tune out the bleatings and follow the money.

The Quest for Food Freedom

28th March 2017

Read it.

Mariza Ruelas currently faces up to two years in jail in California for the crime of selling ceviche through a Facebook food group. Welcome to the mad world of American food regulation. In Biting the Hands That Feed Us, Baylen Linnekin looks closely at a system that can take pride in a historically safe food supply but that also imposes too many rules that defy common sense.

Linnekin traces the system’s origins to The Jungle, Upton Sinclair’s exposé of the appalling conditions in Chicago’s slaughterhouses, and to the New Deal’s hyper-regulation of agriculture. Such intrusiveness culminated in the case of Wickard v. Filburn, in which the Supreme Court ruled that Americans don’t even have the right to consume food they grow themselves, on their own land. Food regulation has marched steadily onward ever since.

EPA Sued For Withholding Info on ‘Environmental Justice’ Programs

28th March 2017

Read it.

A government watchdog group filed suit against the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for not handing over records related to the “environmental justice” grants the agency hands out to activist groups across the country.

Judicial Watch filed suit Monday after the EPA failed to comply with a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking records of environmental justice grants and their associated proposals during the Obama administration.

“The Obama EPA’s ‘environmental justice’ slush fund for its left-wing allies needs to be exposed,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “This is a simple records request and the fact that the Obama EPA ignored it for years tells you the agency has something to hide.”

Rockville High Protesters Rip State, County Governments Over Sanctuary Policies

27th March 2017

Read it.

The alleged rape of a 14-year-old Rockville High School student by two illegal immigrant classmates has thrown the issue into the national spotlight. Some local residents are laying blame for the assault at the feet of Montgomery County officials and state lawmakers, who they say have ignored law-abiding citizens while trying to score political points by resisting the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement orders.

“Rockville High School was a tragedy waiting to happen and can happen again,” North Potomac resident Ed Amatetti told fellow protesters. “This is a public safety and school safety issue. It’s about schools with declining academic and discipline standards, in part to accommodate other ill-conceived policies we question here today.”

Farmers Are Manipulating Microbiomes to Help Crops Grow

27th March 2017

Read it.

Cue freak-out by the eco-Nazis.

Thousands of types of bacteria may live on plants; only dozens or maybe hundreds live inside. But the very fact that bacteria live inside plants is surprising. “It catches almost everybody off guard,” says Indigo CEO David Perry. And these bacteria that plants allow inside their roots, leaves, and stems can be beneficial, allowing them to, for example, capture nutrients from the air. Plants even pass along their endophytes via seeds, packaging their beneficial bacteria up into a convenient packet for their offspring. Because fewer bacteria live inside the plant than outside, endophytes also face less competition, meaning they’re more likely to be effective as a product for farmers.

Atsushi Shimizu is the inventor of the world’s first typhoon turbine—an extremely durable, eggbeater-shaped device that can not only withstand the awesome forces generated by a typhoon, it can convert all that power into useable energy. Shimizu’s calculations show that a sufficiently large array of his turbines could capture enough energy from a single typhoon to power Japan for 50 years.

Venturing Into Right-Wing Wilderness, New York Times Reporters Bravely Watch Fox News All Day

26th March 2017

Read it.

The mainstream media’s obsession with Fox News continues, as the New York Times sends intrepid reporters John Koblin and Nick Corasaniti into the fierce jungle-land of right-wing television to watch an entire day of it. They have escaped back with this dispatch from the front lines: “One Nation, Under Fox: 18 Hours With a Network That Shapes America — Fox News is a singular force, crafting a searing narrative about what’s happening in the world for millions of viewers, including President Trump.”

It wasn’t that awful a report, although one can’t picture the Times undertaking such an expedition during the Obama years, going on a brave quest into the left-wing fever swamps of MSNBC (and CNN, and ABC…).

The horror! The horror!

On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind a job that required me to watch TV news all day and then write an article about it for the New York Times (at New York Prices).

A Modest Proposal

Severian ups the ante.

Recently we had a “Day Without Women,” because Hillary Clinton lost the election or something.  As Morgan points out, it didn’t accomplish much, mostly because the kinds of chicks who could afford to skip work to go block traffic don’t do anything productive anyway.

Which is why I think Lefties should go for the gusto.  Stacy McCain is forever alerting us to feminists who think white people are evil (good gravy, man, how do you stand searching this stuff out?).  I’d like to encourage those feminists, and everyone who retweets, favorites, upvotes, or otherwise expresses approval of these kinds of sentiments, to organize A Day Without White People.  By not using anything built, maintained, or invented by white people, these feminists could show all us evil pale penis people just how totally worthless and unnecessary — and, of course, evil — we really are.  Seeing as how math, science, medicine, the rule of law, etc. are all social constructions anyway, it should be no problem going without them for 24 hours.

Bloke Whose Drone Was Blasted Out of Sky by Angry Dad Loses Another Court Battle for Compo

26th March 2017

Read it.

In July 2015, William Merideth, 47, was at home in Hillview, Kentucky, America, when his daughter came in from sunbathing in the garden to say there was a drone buzzing overhead. As a firm believer in his Second Amendment rights, Merideth loaded up his shotgun with bird shot, waited until the camera-fitted quadcopter came over his home, and then took it down with a single shot – which bought the drone’s operators running.

“They asked me, ‘Are you the S-O-B that shot my drone?’ and I said, ‘Yes I am’,” he told journalists. “I had my Glock on me and they started toward me and I told them, ‘If you cross my sidewalk, there’s gonna be another shooting’.”

Heh.

The police were called and they arrested Merideth – not for shooting down the drone per se, but for discharging a firearm within city limits. In October, a judge agreed with Merideth (now known as the Drone Slayer) that he was within his rights to take down the trespassing drone. The dad was cleared of all charges.

And rightly so.

David Boggs, the drone’s owner, was not a happy chap. He sued Merideth for the $1,500 it had cost to replace his toy, insisting that only the US Federal Aviation Administration has the right to control airspace, so his aircraft couldn’t have been trespassing.

Civil War on the Left, Part 38: The Beclowning of Science

24th March 2017

Read it.

With the sensational success of the Wymyn’s march a few days after Trump’s inauguration on everyone’s mind (/sarc), the science community decided that it needs a march of its own, because as everyone knows Trump hates science, and as we also know there was no science at all before federal funding.

The March for Science is scheduled for April 22, which is Earth Day (also Lenin’s birthday by “coincidence”). And like the Wymnyn’s March, there is a lot of gnashing of teeth at the intersection of intersectionality. (Among other things, apparently the “diversity policy” for the march as been re-written four times.)

Rachel Dolezal Claims She’s “A Woke Soul Sista” in New Autobiography

24th March 2017

Read it.

I am not making this up.

You probably remember Dolezal as the former white female NAACP chapter president who identifies as black.  Well, she’s back and boy, does she have some things to say.

Such an arduous task of reading horrendous garbage like In Full Color is likely illegal in most enlightened European countries. After finishing Dolezal’s 280-page “journey to self-identification,” I’ve decided to become a Marxist revolutionary so I can help spare any future generations from such unjust working conditions.

In Full Color ends with an epilogue describing how Dolezal still walks around faking it as a black woman. Her goal “is to provide comfort to those who are not struggling with their identities and assure them that they’re not alone, that they’re not freaks, and that they don’t deserve to be ridiculed or shunned by their friends, families, and communities.” On the contrary, Dolezal stretches the definition of identity beyond absurdity and merely serves as a distraction from real issues facing the black community.  The theme of her book is clearly validation, but the only thing she really needs is professional help.
