Abdallah Won’t Assimilate!

30th June 2017

Read it.

Abdallah Zekri is the director of the Islamophobia Observatory (l’observatoire de l’islamophobie) for an organization called the Collective Against Islamophobia in France (Le Collectif contre l’islamophobie en France, CCIF). CCIF’s observatory is similar to that of the OIC — it monitors and records anything done by the kuffar that Muslims don’t like, and then makes loud complaints about it, taking legal action whenever possible.

He is a prominent public figure among Muslims in France, and reportedly has the ear of the new president, Emmanuel “Toy Boy” Macron.

In the interview below, you’ll hear Mr. Zekri discuss the integration or assimilation of Muslims into French culture, and how much he holds that concept in contempt.

The allegiance of Muslims is the the Ummah, the Dar al-Harb, and not to whatever country they may happen to be residing in.

Judge Rules Ranchers Can’t Be Forced to Fund USDA’s ‘Beef: It’s What’s for Dinner’ Ad Campaign

30th June 2017

Read it.

The United States Department of Agriculture’s Beef Checkoff Program violates ranchers’ First Amendment rights by subsidizing a private company’s marketing campaign, a Montana judge ruled June 21.

The United States District Court for the District of Montana upheld an injunction forbidding the USDA from subsidizing the Montana Beef Council (MBC) with money from Montana cattlemen, according to court documents.

Yeah, the Federal gubmint just LOVES spending other people’s money.

Individual producers pay a tax on each unit they sell, $1 per head of cattle sold for ranchers. That money is used by the USDA and state organizations fund major industry investments. The USDA claims the checkoff programs can provide a a return as high as 1,800 percent in some cases.

I have never known the government to be short of claims. Actual evidence, howerver ….

A Baby Is Condemned to Death by Socialized Medicine

30th June 2017

Read it.

American liberals often gaze across the Atlantic with admiration, viewing Europe as the model for our future. They covet Europe’s rail systems, green-energy subsidies, social liberalism, secularism, welfare states and government-run healthcare.

As Washington rings with cries that a Republican health reform bill would kill “hundreds of thousands of people,” consider the desperately sad tale of Charlie Gard, a baby boy sentenced to die by Britain’s National Health Service.

Death panels. It’s the socialist way. (Where are all the bleeding hearts?)

Devil’s Dictionary

30th June 2017

ZMan turns over a rock.

Maybe it has always been true, but it seems like we live in an age of esoteric language or pseudo-language. Everyone is familiar with the gag of using “undocumented worker” in place of “illegal alien.”  Janitors became sanitation engineers and teachers are now educators. It’s a part of how the American Left makes war on our civilization. By destroying the language they destroy the truth. If words no longer have common and concise meanings, then there is no truth, only force.

Progressivism requires change, constant change, change never-ending, and the first thing that always gets changed in any political squabble is the language.

There’s another aspect to this. The Progs create pleasant sounding phrases and neologisms that are packed with danger. It’s a natural outgrowth of the passive-aggressive tactics popular with the Progs. The new word or phrase is not intended to clarify or explain idea, but to warn people that the official truth has been decided and any further debate will be seen as a challenge. As everyone knows, the Left responds to a challenge with violence so the new phrase means “shut up or else.”

As Orwell warned us, those who control our speech eventually control our thoughts; it is part of the attempt to control our thoughts that proglodytes seek to control our speech.

Have a conversation: Whenever you hear someone say they want to have a conversation about something, what they mean is they want to shut down all debate and impose their will with regards to the subject. Having a conversation about marriage led to the end of the homosexual marriage debate in favor of the sodomites. Having a conversation about race means Progs screaming at white people about racism and white privilege. Having a conversation always means sitting through a lecture.

Gulf of Aqaba Treaty: a Saudi Repudiation of the Camp David Accords

30th June 2017

After more than a year of a heated debate, Egypt finally ceded two small Red Sea Islands to Saudi Arabia, giving KSA control over the Straits of Tiran and the Gulf of Aqaba. These waterways separate the Sinai Peninsula from the Arabian mainland and portions of the coastline are owned by Egypt, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia. Giving ownership of Tiran and Sanafir Islands and control of the gulf and straits to Saudi Arabia is a strategic mistake and a security threat for five reasons.

Thousands of Fake or Dead People Enrolled in Government Phone Program, Auditors Say

Created in the 1980s, the Federal Communications Commission’s Lifeline program helps low-income people pay for phone and Internet service.

The federal government reimburses telecommunication companies that offer discounts to eligible subscribers through a fund made up of fees collected from consumers’ telephone bills.

Lifeline paid $1.5 billion in subsidies last year to more than 12 million households. But an estimated 36 percent of the program’s subscribers might be ineligible for enrollment, according to the audit.

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

British Van Driver Dies After Migrants Block Road

29th June 2017

Read it.

A British van driver died in a massive crash a week ago after migrants placed tree trunks on the highway to stop motorists in an attempt to get a ride from France into the United Kingdom, Breitbart News reports.

When the van was unable to slow down before the barrier, it caught fire and the driver was killed. Nine Eritrean migrants have been arrested, suspected of planting the wooden blockade, and are now in police custody.

Makes you wonder where the French police are in all this. (And why they’re so desperate to get to Britain — France must be pretty bad. Or maybe the French just don’t play the ‘poor little refugee’ game.)

The presence of migrants has not only hurt truckers financially, but their jobs are becoming increasingly precarious. HGV drivers have cited a newfound “gauntlet of intimidation and fear” of transporting goods to Britain. Migrants armed with baseball bats, iron bars, and even guns have made the French Calais region extremely treacherous.

Does France even have police in this area? Doesn’t sound like it. Maybe Brexit ought to have come several years ago, before the Channel Tunnel was built.

This Protester Used Virtue Signaling At Its Finest

29th June 2017

Read it.

A woman attending a Planned Parenthood protest Wednesday afternoon on Capitol Hill held a sign signaling to the world how much greater her virtues were than any Republican, or American, supporting the Obamacare repeal effort.

“I don’t know how to convince you to care about others,” the sign read.

Hundreds of protestors marched to express their disdain for Senate Republicans’ bill to repeal major portions of Obamacare. The most consistent complaints of the Senate bill among those in attendance were the 1-year cut to Planned Parenthood funding and the steep cuts to Medicaid.

The obvious response is ‘I don’t know how to convince you to mind your own fucking business and keep your nose out of mine (and your hand out of my pocket).’ But that doesn’t fit conveniently on a sign.

And of course anyone who supports abortion-mill Planned Parenthood has no standing from which to criticize other people about ‘not caring about others’.

The Cold Civil War

29th June 2017

Read it.

America is in the throes of revolution. The 2016 election and its aftermath reflect the distinction, difference, even enmity that has grown exponentially over the past quarter century between America’s ruling class and the rest of the country. During the Civil War, President Lincoln observed that all sides “pray[ed] to the same God.” They revered, though in clashing ways, the same founders and principles. None doubted that those on the other side were responsible human beings. Today, none of that holds. Our ruling class and their clients broadly view Biblical religion as the foundation of all that is wrong with the world. According to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, “The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy, or any form of intolerance.”

The government apparatus identifies with the ruling class’s interests, proclivities, and tastes, and almost unanimously with the Democratic Party. As it uses government power to press those interests, proclivities, and tastes upon the ruled, it acts as a partisan state. This party state’s political objective is to delegitimize not so much the politicians who champion the ruled from time to time, but the ruled themselves. Ever since Woodrow Wilson nearly a century and a half ago at Princeton, colleges have taught that ordinary Americans are rightly ruled by experts because they are incapable of governing themselves. Millions of graduates have identified themselves as the personifiers of expertise and believe themselves entitled to rule. Their practical definition of discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, etc., is neither more nor less than anyone’s reluctance to bow to them. It’s personal.

A New Microscope Uses Light to “Cut” Through Tissue Samples and Find Cancer

28th June 2017

Read it.

The ultimate goal of a lumpectomy is to remove all the cancerous tissue from a person’s breast while saving as much of the healthy tissue as possible. But that’s even harder than it sounds. Without the ability to look at tissue under a microscope, it’s currently impossible to tell whether the area surrounding a tumor contains cancerous cells or not. Surgeons deal with this by taking samples from around the removed tumor, waiting for a pathologist to look at them, and performing additional surgeries if they turn out to be cancerous. This is not only time consuming and expensive, but also extremely stressful for the patient.

Doctor: Insurance Wouldn’t Pay for Patients’ Treatments, But Offered Assisted Suicide

Dr. Brian Callister, a doctor in Reno, Nevada, says he had two patients recently who both needed life-saving treatments. “Not palliative care, not hospice, these would have been curative procedures.” One patient, he said, was from California, and the other was from Oregon, which both have passed physician-assisted suicide laws. Instead of offering to pay for their treatments, Callister said the insurance medical directors in both states offered his patients assisted suicide.

Italy Threatens to Close Its Ports as Migrant Situation Spirals Out of Control

Italy has threatened to close its ports for foreign ships as the migrant situation in the Mediterranean sea has become “unsustainable.”

More than 77,000 migrants have arrived in Italy so far in 2017, an increase of 14 percent compared to 2016. The government is now accusing the European Union of “looking the other way” instead of offering support.

“Italy has reached saturation point,” an unnamed government source told Reuters. “The idea of blocking humanitarian ships flying foreign flags from returning to Italian ports has been discussed.”

Milwaukee County Sued For Requiring 10 Page Permit Application to Play Pokemon Go in Public Park

28th June 2017

Read it.

Sure, the hugely popular augmented reality game was getting kids (and adults!) to roam around outside—probably doing more to get kids moving than Michelle Obama ever did—in the hopes of catching and battling their fictional “pocket monsters,” but Milwaukee County officials were worried about how the game’s popularity was affecting parks and other public spaces. Augmented reality games like Pokemon Go require gamers to be in certain physical locations in order to collect pokemon or complete in-game tasks, and public parks became hot spots for the game’s overlaid reality.

Rather than being thrilled to see people of all ages flocking to places like the city’s Lake Park to enjoy a new form of recreation, though, Milwaukee County implemented new rules requiring permits before anyone could engage in “electronic gaming” in parks and other public spaces.

Every year, almost every industry improves.

We get more choices—usually better choices, for less money.

“But of all the products we make and the services we provide, there’s one that stands out as an exception,” according to the Cato Institute’s Andrew Coulson. “One activity in which excellence doesn’t spawn countless imitators or spread on a massive scale: schooling.”

They fail because they are run by government employees, and government employees screw up everything they touch, and politicize what’s left.

Plastic Bag Bans Are in Retreat Across the Country

28th June 2017

Read it.

Given the current trend, customers in Kermit and across the country will be able once again to bring their groceries home in inexpensive bags provided by their merchants. A challenge to the legality of all local bag bans in the state has made its way to the Texas Supreme Court. State legislatures across the country are taking aggressive steps to roll back local bans.

The Ruling Class don’t see any problem dictating to people how they ought to live, or to businesses what services they can provide their customers. They are, after all, the smartest people in the room — certainly smarter than anybody with out an Ivy League degree who lives in Flyover Country.

In May the Minnesota legislature passed a state-wide preemption on bag bans, overturning Minneapolis’s local prohibition. Iowa did the same in April, and over the past year, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Indiana, have all passed restrictions on local governments banning and taxing bags.

Note that the bans are always on the part of (Democrat-run) city administrations, and the defenders of consumer choice are the state legislatures, responding to (dare I say it?) the will of the people at large. Funny it is how Democrats don’t really have all that much affection for democracy.

“These bans were never about bags,” says Rozenski, “they were about litter in the waste stream. Studies are showing negligible impact to litter.”

They were never about litter, either. It was all about controlling the sinners and making them live a life of leftist virtue, in relation to which facts are irrelevant.

Bag banners completely missed the value of the bags in reducing the litter stream, “seeing it from the recycling perspective,”Moreno said. “A lot of people use them for trash bags, lot of people use them to carry their lunch.”

Every store I buy from has containers for people to recycle plastic shopping bags, and my church has a program to do the same. If you buy groceries or go to church, there is every opportunity to conveniently recycle the bags. But, of course, it was never about the bags, only about the Narrative.

Clinical Psychologist: ‘Women Hate Harmless Men’

28th June 2017

Read it.

Many modern men have been propagandized to believe that modern women want nice, sensitive, empathetic guys who make them feel safe.

And then they are perplexed and frustrated when they eventually find themselves dumped, divorced, or relegated to the friend-zone for perpetuity.

According to Jordan Peterson—clinical psychologist, professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, and popular speaker—such results are not surprising. When he spoke to a gathering of people earlier this year, his thoughts on what women really want in a man supported a stereotype that still has popular cachet: that women are attracted to assholes.

Those of you who watch TV, consider The Blacklist. Agent Elizabeth Keene is the epitome of modern feminism, who kicks butt and rarely bothers to take names, and is married to a classic pajama-boy beta male who teaches gradeschool and is so sensitive and supportive that it’s surprising that he has lived as long as he has.

Alma Mater Blotter

Steve Sailer turns over a rock.

What’s the worst college in America in terms of taking in kids from rich families and turning out young adults who, despite all their privileges, still won’t earn very much?

The median parents of Middlebury students earned $219,600 per year (in 2015 dollars), while ten to twelve years after college, the children (as 32- to 34-year-olds in 2014) earned $61,800.

The Witch Hunters

28th June 2017

ZMan has an interesting take.

One of the themes here is that the American Left is a different thing from the European Left in that it was not born out of the French Revolution. It was born out of the English Civil War and the religious radicalism of the prior century. American Progressives are the spiritual children of the Puritans and Public Protestantism. Their primary motivation is communal salvation. To that end, their focus is on rooting out sin and naming the sinner, rather than the material egalitarianism we associate with the European Left.

Is there anything that we can’t blame on Cromwell?

Democratic Rep: Citing Uncomfortable Data Is White Privilege

28th June 2017

Read it.

Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King found himself accused of using his white privilege last week after he offered statistics that Democratic Louisiana Rep. Cedric Richmond didn’t like.

It all started at a House Judiciary Committee hearing where King brought up the high-crime rates of Central American nations that many immigrants hail from. King called the violence of countries like El Salvador shocking, but then pointed out that some cities in the U.S. have comparable murder rates.

But that talk infuriated Rep. Richmond, who represents parts of New Orleans.

“We just had a conversation about this. We’re going to lose all civility in this committee if he thinks it’s appropriate to compare New Orleans to Guatemala,” Richmond fumed while incorrectly identifying the nation King was speaking of.

Yeah, I can see that citing facts could be construed as ‘acting white’.

Families Launch Advocacy Group for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime

28th June 2017

Read it.

And why not? Everybody else has an advocacy group.

Six American families whose relatives have been killed by illegal immigrants announced Tuesday the formation of a victims’ advocacy group, responding to what they see as indifference among elected officials to the dangers of illegal alien crime.

The members of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC) say they are joining together in order to provide a support network for other families and to educate the public on the effects of lax immigration enforcement. The nonprofit organization plans to lobby Congress on a wide range of illegal immigration bills, including measures to punish sanctuary cities and provide funding for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.

But they’re all white people, and WhiteLivesDon’tMatter. Diversity is not the most important thing, it’s the only thing.

Professor Says Obama Presidency Only Increased Racism

27th June 2017

Read it.

Fairfield University communications professor Audra Nuru says the presidency of Barack Obama only fueled racism in America.

Nuru told the annual diversity and equity conference of the Association of Jesuit Colleges this month that Obama made racist attacks more possible because he was black and because he was subject to criticism, The College Fix reports.

“I’m not saying by any means that Barack Obama incited racism. I’m saying that him being in office, people who were already racist got a platform to address this publicly and reify it,” Nuru said.

The way to stop discrimination by race is to stop discriminating by race. BlackLivesMatter has triggered more racism than the KKK ever dreamed of.

Report: Top FBI Official Had It In for Flynn

27th June 2017

Read it.

We know that President Obama had it in for Gen. Michael Flynn. The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was a persistent critic of Obama’s feckless policies, especially regarding ISIS. Obama reportedly advised president-elect Trump not to offer Flynn a high level position.

According to this report from Circa, the FBI’s Andrew McCabe also had an ax to grind with Flynn. A few years ago, Robyn Gritz, a supervisory special agent, filed a discrimination/retaliation claim against the FBI. Flynn supported Gritz’s claim. According to Circa, he wrote a letter of support in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationery, backed her in a 2015 public interview, and offered to testify on her behalf. (The FBI opposed allowing Flynn to testify. As I read Circa’s story, it appears that he did not testify.)

Well. So much for that fake news.

Nobody keeps a grudge like a Democrat. Ask any of the Clinton victims.

Hidden Camera Catches CNN Producer Saying Trump ‘Probably Right’ About Russia ‘Witch Hunt’ [VIDEO]

When asked by the Project Veritas reporter, “But honestly, you think the whole Russia shit is just like, bullshit?” Bonifield replies, “Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like we, don’t have any big giant proof.”

How the FAA Killed Uber for Planes

27th June 2017

Read it.

Dubbed “the Uber of the skies,” startups like Flytenow and AirPooler aimed to connect pilots whose private flights were not yet filled to passengers eager to reach their destinations without suffering the horrors of commercial air travel. Founded in 2013, the services were a great win-win for both parties: Pilots no longer had to simply eat the cost of empty seats on each trip, and passengers got to enjoy the thrill of small-scale flight for a very affordable price. For the first time, it seemed like consumers would have a real inexpensive alternative to the hell of economy class travel.

That is, until the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) caught wind of all this innovation and decided to quash it once and for all. In a sneaky bid to shut down this kind of arrangement, the FAA decided to expansively interpret its own definition of a “common carriage” operator so that non-commercial small-scale pilots using these services would be legally put on the same level as the big boy commercial flights—with the same expensive regulatory and licensing requirements.

This is why we can’t ever have anything nice.

It’s nearly incontrovertible that a slow-motion coup d’etat is now taking place. Since November 9, 2016, forces within the U.S. government, media, and partisan opposition have aligned to overthrow the Electoral College winner, Donald Trump.

To achieve this they have undermined the institutions of the Fourth Estate, the bureaucratic apparatus of the U.S. government, and the very nature of a contentious yet affable two-party political system. Unlike the coup d’etat that sees a military or popular figure lead a minority resistance or majority force into power over the legitimate government, this coup d’etat is leaderless and exposes some of the deepest fissures in our system of government. This coup d’etat represents not the rule of one man or even many, but by the multitude of our elites.

There is an old English proverb, ‘He who draws his sword against the king must throw away the scabbard’, and that’s what we’re seeing now.

How about that government-provided healthcare! Don’t you wish we had a system like that in America?

Unfortunately, the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.

I guess ‘crowdfunding’ is when you combine charity + social media.

House Dems Hired a Fired McDonald’s Worker as Their IT Guy

27th June 2017

Read it.

Soon after Imran Awan joined the staff of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2005, his brothers Abid and Jamal, his wife Hina, and his brother’s wife Natalia all appeared on other members’ payrolls, supposedly as IT administrators. His best friend Rao Abbas landed on the payroll too. Most of them made salaries ordinarily only chiefs of staff earn, but they were rarely seen or heard from in Hill IT circles.

The crew is now the target of a U.S. Capitol Police criminal information security probe with assistance from other law enforcement agencies as needed. Politico reported the “House staffers are accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.”
