Public University Hosts Blacks-Only Student Retreat – to Promote Inclusion

Man Robbed and Killed After PlentyOfFish Date

24th August 2016

Read it.

Adam Hilarie, 27, was shot in the head during a robbery that police say Hailey Bustos, 18, arranged within hours after visiting his home on their first date in the central Florida town of Auburndale.

Police said Mr Hilarie and Bustos met through the PlentyOfFish website. They went to his place after bowling Thursday night, and then he drove her home. Investigators believe she and three other assailants then met to discuss the robbery.

She returned Friday night with Andre Warner, 26; Gary Gray, 31; and Joshua Ellington, 31, police said Tuesday after all four were arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, armed robbery and first-degree murder.

I can’t point out that everyone involved was a Person of Color because that would be raaaaaaacist.

Mr Ray said police believe Bustos agreed to the date with the intention of setting up the robbery. Three of the four, including Bustos, also have been charged with violation of probation.

I would, however, like to point out that the reason so large a portion of the prison population are black appears to be that for some reason — purely by coincidence, of course — those who like to commit crimes appear to be People of Color. What are the odds?

Maybe Obama knows. We’ll ask him, once he gets done playing golf.

A Terrorist Attack in Roanoke

24th August 2016

Read it.

A man in Roanoke County is in custody after attacking a couple in an apartment complex. The man, Wasil Farooqui, slashed the victims with a knife while allegedly shouting “Allahu Akbar.” The couple doesn’t know Farooqui. Apparently he selected them at random to be attacked.

The male victim has neck wounds, but the police says this doesn’t look like an attempted beheading. The victim apparently has wounds all over his body.

Rumors that the victim had ‘Croatoan’ carved on his body in Arabic are probably unfounded.

An FBI special agent is on the scene now. He assures the community that the FBI is “working to determine the nature of the incident.”

Yeah, that sounds like a real head-scratcher. What could his motive possibly be? It’s all so puzzling.

Maybe Obama knows. Or maybe not.

Facing High Labor Costs From Minimum Wage Hikes, Chicago Restaurant Closes

23rd August 2016

Read it.

A Chicago restaurant abruptly closed this week, with ownership blaming the “rapidly changing labor market” and a 27 percent increase in base minimum wage costs over the last two years as culprits for the collapse.

Cantina 1910, a farm-to-table Mexican restaurant located in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, opened in September 2015.

Former Cantina 1910 employees said they were shocked to find out late Sunday evening of the closing, DNAinfo reported.

“We are unable to further raise prices in this competitive restaurant market in order to sustain the labor costs necessary to operate Cantina 1910,” Mark Robertson and Mike Sullivan, Cantina 1910’s owners, said in an emailed statement to The Daily Signal.

It’a amazing how many people seem unable to grasp the simple economic fact that if you raise the price of something people want less of it.

Whatever Happened to Adam Smith?

23rd August 2016

Read it.

Laissez faire, laissez passer” is the most tolerant of all creeds. As Smith insisted, it’s the very opposite of “pro-business” or pro-inequality; the market loves to disrupt complacent cartels. Yet to listen to most of the intelligentsia, you would think that freedom to exchange goods and services – which they prefer to call by the Marxist word “capitalism” – has done terrible harm in the world and needs taming by virtuous government. Further, that small-government philosophy has been terminally discredited, not least by the financial crisis of 2008.

There is no such thing as ‘capitalism’, except in the minds of Marxists and their dupes (which is almost everybody these days).

There are free markets, and there are unfree markets; that’s all.

After Botched Abortion, Woman Sues for Money to Raise the Child

23rd August 2016

Read it.

Saw that coming.

The unidentified 20-year-old woman got an abortion early on in her pregnancy, according to a court statement, but the abortionist failed to kill the fetus and now she is the mother of a little boy. This caused the woman to suffer “immense psychological trauma,” and she is demanding compensation from both the government and her doctor, who she says failed to realize she was still pregnant.

The woman underwent a surgical abortion one month into her pregnancy, which typically involves the abortionist suctioning or vacuuming the fetus out of the womb. It’s unclear from the report how the baby survived the procedure, but the woman apparently went back to her doctor thinking she might still be pregnant and reported a tender feeling and prickly sensation in her belly.

The doctor reportedly dismissed her concerns and did not perform an ultrasound to see if she was still pregnant. But a blood test later showed unusually high levels of hormones were still present, and a follow up ultrasound confirmed she was 20 weeks pregnant.

Obvious medical malpractice.

However, since she could have had another (attempted) abortion and didn’t, any competent defense attorney will argue that she could have mitigated her loss and didn’t, therefore reducing the liability of the abortionist.

They teach you that sort of thing in law school.

Jihad in the Old Dominion (Again)

23rd August 2016

Read it.

There was an aborted jihad attack not far from us here in Virginia over the weekend, but I didn’t encounter any news of it until just now.

When I saw the headline this morning about a “possible ISIS-inspired terror attack in Virginia”, I assumed that the incident must have occurred in Northern Virginia, a.k.a. The Wretched Hive of Scum and Villainy. The southern suburbs of Washington D.C. are now a vast cesspit of cultural enrichment, much of it Islamic. Fairfax County — abode Anwar of al-Awlaki and numerous other jihad celebrities — is a particular hotbed of Koranic ferment.

But last Saturday’s attack was in Roanoke, a fair-sized regional city located at the upper end of the Valley of Virginia at a large gap in the Blue Ridge Mountains. More specifically, the incident occurred in Roanoke County, near Cave Spring in the suburbs west of the city. A 20-year-old culture-enricher named Wasil Farooqui attacked a man and a woman with a large knife while yelling “Allahu Akhbar”. The perp reportedly tried to behead the man, but the victim managed to fight off the mujahid, despite his own severe wounds.

When I saw the mug shot of Wasil Farooqui, he didn’t look that young, so I wondered if he had perhaps been an “unaccompanied minor” who knocked a few years off his age in order to be implanted in Roanoke by the Refugee Resettlement Program. But no; according to The Daily Mail, Mr. Farooqui was born in the USA. He’s as American as apple pie and female genital mutilation.

Union’s Union Lands Union in Big Trouble With NLRB

23rd August 2016

Read it.

The Michigan State Employees Association (MSEA) and its President, Kenneth Moore, were faulted with improperly handling its dealings with its own central office employees. Those employees are actually represented by a union within a union, called the Central Office Staff Association (COSA).

The NLRB determined MSEA violated the collective bargaining rights of COSA employees when it suspended and then fired an administrative assistant. The NLRB found Moore wrongfully fired the administrative assistant because he relied on a unilateral directive as grounds for her termination. It also found that Moore “unlawfully reprimanded” an employee for what amounted to union activity.

Thus demonstrating that unions aren’t about the rights of workers, or even benefits for workers, but about power for union offilials. Jerry Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy is validated once again.

The GOP Is Writing Off 30 Percent of the American Electorate

23rd August 2016

Read it.

This extended whine by Nick Gillespie merely retreads the common delusion is that ‘appeal’ is like the weather, it just happens and those to whom it happens need to flounder around and find some sacrifice to the gods of Political Correctness that will get them on the Right Side of History.

It wasn’t always this way, of course, and looking at how Republicans went from being the default party of black voters after the Civil War to being a pariah among them is a way of understanding one highly probable future for the GOP as a minor party that represents a smaller and smaller bloc of voters who identify as “white” and “American” in strictly nativist terms.

Basically, the Republicans got out-bid. LBJ started the process with his remark, when signing the Civil Right Act, ‘Those niggers will vote for us for a hundred years.’ Northern Democrats essentially threw the Southern wing of their party overboard by realizing that they could purchase black politicians through corruption (always a Democrat specialty; look at the various city ‘machines’), and those corrupt black politicians would deliver the black vote through grievance-mongering (look at Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton) and government benefit payoffs. Even today, the ‘appeal’ that Democrats have for black people is ‘Obama money’ from ‘his stash’, which is YOUR wallet.

An added bonus, probably not planned, was the destruction of the black culture through government welfare dependency. Destroy their families through ‘benefits’, destroy their communities through ‘housing projects’, destroy their schools through ‘identity politics’, and they have nowhere to turn except the government — and the Democrats, the party of government.

Black culture having been destroyed and made dependent on government, they are now turning to white underclass culture. Unlimited immigration of underclass Hispanics is forcing working-class whites into a poverty trap, from which the only salvation is — you guessed it — government benefits.

Blacks learned that if you don’t have any prospect of an honest job, drugs and crime are your only options. Now, underclass whites are learning the same lesson. Eventually you hit a tipping point where the only thing that underclass whites can aspire to is Eminem, who prospers by pretending to be black and beating real black people at their own ‘gangsta’ culture. We even see undoubtedly white people ‘identifying’ as black because they want to get in on the victim gravy train.

Tattoo You

23rd August 2016

Read it.

It’s summertime, and summer in Germany means being molested at a swimming pool — especially if you are a pre-pubescent girl.

It was not always like that. Prior to last year’s wave of “refugees”, such incidents were rare. But now they are commonplace in German swimming pools.

The following article describes a solution proposed by the authorities responsible for overseeing swimming pools: a suggestion for young girls that they wear stick-on tattoos that say “NO” when they swim, so the would-be molesters will leave them alone.

Sure, that will work — do not the ‘Gun Free Zone’ signs prevent massacres?

Ilhan Omar Stonewalls

23rd August 2016

The latest from the most recent Minnesota Muslim scandal.

When Ilhan Omar finally got around to issuing a statement on her multiple marriages this past Wednesday evening, she drew on the Democratic scandal management playbook to put the story to bed. Omar characterized the allegations related to her marriages as “absurd and offensive.” Omar counts on cooperative Minnesota media not to follow up with impolite questions. KMSP 9’s Tom Lyden, however, is not in a cooperative mood.

Understand, however, that the heart of this story is possible immigration fraud. I asked the Omar campaign whether her second marriage, the one to her lawful husband, was entered into for dishonest purposes. The campaign forwarded my inquiry for response by Jean Brandl, a Minnesota criminal defense attorney. The response Brandl conveyed to my inquiries failed to address their substance. I thought that too was a story all by itself.

Journal: Transgenderism ‘Not Supported By Scientific Evidence’

23rd August 2016

Read it.

Although popular culture and many of the leading media organizations have bought wholeheartedly into the idea that gender identity is something distinct from one’s biological sex — that a man could be born in a woman’s body or vice versa — such beliefs have no grounding in any credible scientific evidence, according to a report published Monday in the journal The New Atlantis.

Arizona State University professor of statistics and biostatistics Lawrence S. Mayer and John Hopkins University Medical School professor of psychiatrics Paul McHugh co-authored the report, which examined top peer-reviewed studies in the biological, psychological, and social sciences.

“Examining research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, this report shows that some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence,” they noted.

Among the key findings listed by the authors was that, “The hypothesis that gender identity is an innate, fixed property of human beings that is independent of biological sex — that a person might be ‘a man trapped in a woman’s body’ or ‘a woman trapped in a man’s body’ — is not supported by scientific evidence.”

Amazing how that works.

BIAS ALERT: Media Links Lochte, Trump – Even Though Swimmer Supported Obama

23rd August 2016

Read it.

Olympian Ryan Lochte behaved like an ugly American and then lied about it, so he must be a Trump supporter, right?

Media outlets led by the Huffington Post have decided so. Nothing other than the swimming star’s bad behavior was enough to send the website’s Cynthia Dill on a flight of fancy – and bizarre assumptions.

“How much do you want to bet that Ryan Lochte is a Donald Trump supporter?” Dill wrote, derisively referring to both Trump and Lochte as “bros.” “And is it me, or does shirtless Lochte in the pool resemble shirtless … Putin, Trump’s idol, on a horse?”

An Associated Press article titled, “For Trump and Lochte, the delicate politics of contrition,” by Nancy Benac, highlighted Trump and Lochte’s apologies and pointed out that neither “fully owned up to exactly what he’d done wrong.”

Uh, sounds more like Clinton than Trump, but of course Trump is the new Hitler.

“Lochte and Trump are a pair of arrogant, ignorant jerks who believe that neither conduct nor character actually matters, and who feel entitled to rescue themselves from any sticky situation through the strategic application of lies and money,” O’Hehir wrote.

Uh, sounds more like Clinton than Trump, but of course Trump is the new Hitler.

Fox News Referenced in Order to Edit State Department Video

23rd August 2016

Read it.

An investigation by the State Department’s top attorney has found that the official who ordered the censorship of a 2013 press briefing — deleting an exchange between a department spokeswoman and a Fox News reporter — specifically mentioned that exchange when ordering the doctoring of the video.

They know who their friends are … and who they aren’t.

That fact, buried in a new report prepared by the department’s Office of the Legal Adviser, was ignored in the report’s own conclusions about why the incident occurred, and conflicted with public statements about the report made by State Department spokesman John Kirby.

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

Kirby explained Thursday that a technician in the department’s Bureau of Public Affairs recalled receiving a telephone call from a female superior back in December 2013, ordering the editing of the video. The legal adviser’s report said that while the technician “did not believe” the call had come from Psaki, the technician was otherwise unable to remember the identity of the superior.

How … convenient.

The Direct Democracy President

22nd August 2016

Scott Adams continues his masterly analysis.

Direct democracy in pre-Internet days was a bad idea because it gave power to ignorance. But direct democracy in 2016 is more about the public squeezing the evil out of its own leaders. Evil doesn’t like sunlight. It doesn’t like Trump’s unkind immigration plans and it doesn’t like the Clinton Foundation – which just announced it would stop taking foreign donation if Clinton is elected. The public gets what the public demands.

Quickly, name a policy idea from a major candidate that is both deeply unpopular with the public and also likely to become a law. I can’t think of one. That isn’t even a thing anymore. If the public doesn’t like it, the leaders can’t do it. Period.

Federal Judge Blocks Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Policy

22nd August 2016

Read it.

A U.S. District Court judge on Sunday blocked the Obama administration from implementing new rules aimed at allowing transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms of their choice.

The ruling, by Judge Reed O’Connor of Fort Worth, Texas, is a win for the 13 states that had sought to prevent the administration’s directives from taking effect. It comes a month after the Supreme Court blocked a lower court order allowing a student in Virginia to use the boys’ bathroom during the upcoming school year.

In his 38-page ruling, O’Connor found the Obama administration had failed to follow the Administrative Procedures Act, which requires the federal government to allow for comments on new proposed rules. O’Connor did not rule on the constitutionality of the directive itself.

Phrathouse Phobia

22nd August 2016

Freeberg nails it again.

I am worried. I’m worried that it’s been so long since we’ve seen a problem actually solved, we don’t know what it looks like anymore and we don’t understand the process. The partisanship has just made things worse, when a U.S. President or some other executive inserts himself. Half the time, nothing identifiable actually gets done; if it does get done, then the party opposed to that executive will find all sorts of things wrong with it, while the executive’s own party just cherry-picks anything that might be interpreted as positive news, and hogs all the credit, casting blame upon whoever came before for whatever might not be so positive. People have resigned themselves to the reality that that’s the process. The idea that there are simple and reliable ways to forecast things from other things…genuine causes and effects, with genuine relationships tying them together…gets lost.

That’s modern American politics in a nutshell.

Political correctness is destruction, plain and simple. We’ve been wandering through the thick of it, like through a fog, since I was a kid. And I just turned fifty.

Yup.

Political correctness is political. It is not decency. An attempt to enhance decency, resulting in destruction of the person who caused offense, but realizing no acknowledgement that the better behavior is better behavior — will have failed. Political correctness is about the destruction. If P.C. can bring about the acknowledgement of better behavior, and a sincere promise not to re-offend, but fails to destroy, then it, too, has likewise failed. It’s got nothing to do at all with bringing about a more enlightened or civilized society, and some among us are quite tired of this obligatory expectation that we should treat it that way.

It’s about getting people canned. Period, full-stop.

As such, it does not promote civilized-human behavior. It promotes shark behavior.

Right on.

Hydrogel Superglue Is 90 Percent Water

21st August 2016

Read it.

Nature has developed innovative ways to solve a sticky challenge: Mussels and barnacles stubbornly glue themselves to cliff faces, ship hulls, and even the skin of whales. Likewise, tendons and cartilage stick to bone with incredible robustness, giving animals flexibility and agility.

The natural adhesive in all these cases is hydrogel — a sticky mix of water and gummy material that creates a tough and durable bond.

Now engineers at MIT have developed a method to make synthetic, sticky hydrogel that is more than 90 percent water. The hydrogel, which is a transparent, rubber-like material, can adhere to surfaces such as glass, silicon, ceramics, aluminum, and titanium with a toughness comparable to the bond between tendon and cartilage on bone.
