Equal means EQUAL, dammit!

Victimized by end-stage Femileftism.

Two transgender male athletes kept high school track runner Selina Soule from advancing in the New England girls’ track regionals. Soule needed to be in the top six runners to advance, but came out eighth because the two biological males were also competing as transgender girls. She is now taking legal action with Alliance Defending Freedom(ADF) to uphold her rights under the federal law providing equal access to women in education, known as Title IX.

“Girls like Selina should never be forced to be spectators in their own sports,” Holcomb said. “But unfortunately that is exactly what is taking place when you allow biological males to compete in sports that have been set aside and specifically designed for women like Selina.”

Look, I’ll say it one more time: they are NOT “biological males.” They are fully, completely, in every way that matters nowadays (ie, politically) WOMEN. I don’t care if they’re swinging a schlong big enough to make a donkey blush in shame: THEY. ARE. WOMEN. All they have to do is believe it to be so, and it is so. To claim otherwise is to reveal oneself as nothing but a bigoted, transphobic H888TRRRR—to do unconscionable injury to a perfectly normal, courageous Hero™ just trying to Live Xzhir Truth. Full stop, end of story.

Title IX is supposed to protect girls in athletics so they are not prevented from competing at the highest levels. According to ADF, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference has a policy allowing transgender males to compete in girls’ athletics. One of the transgender athletes who competed in Soule’s race broke 10 state sports records previously held by biological women, which took women some 20 years to achieve.

It is unsurprising for biological males to destroy female records. Men are physiologically stronger than woman, having more muscle mass and a higher bone density, ADF reports. Typically an average male athlete in any sport will beat the best female athletes in the same sports because of males’ biological height, weight, speed, bone, muscle, and other physical advantages compared to women.

Lies, nothing but lies, told by the revanchist enablers of patriarchal repression who have for too long stifled us. We are exactly the same, one and all; gender is fluid, malleable, eternally switchable from amongst a Baskin-Robbins-style menu of endless choices. There are no boundaries, no limitations. Thanks to the Left, we can all enjoy total freedom without limitations or restraints, even those once imposed on us by what we erroneously called “reality” and “science” back in a darker, less-enlightened era.

This isn’t unfair competition dominated by mentally-disturbed ringers; it isn’t delusion and degeneracy über alles. This is the face of the new True Equality, as conceived and enforced by the bughouse Left. Sorry, sweetie, but these are the rules passed on to us from the Sisterhood and the rest of the Left, and submission to them is NOT optional. I didn’t make ’em. Nor did you. But they’re here, and now we all have to live by ’em.

Hey, you can always join the Marines or something.

Under the bus with you!

No longer useful, no longer needed, no longer wanted. Sorry, HILLARY!™, but it would seem you’re past your sell-by date.

The U.S. State Department announced Monday that it found 23 “violations” and seven “infractions” in its review of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct official business. The department also found several individuals culpable in “multiple security incidents,” associated with the scandal.

The department’s findings came in an official letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R–Iowa), who is in charge of congressional oversight in the department’s security review regarding the mishandling of classified information related to Clinton’s emails.

The revelations from the State Department follow a January inquiry from Grassley who sought information related to the security incidents and officials involved with Clinton’s private email server during her time as secretary of state.

That would be Her Herness’s wide-open, halfassed, and completely illegal private server.

The Federal Records Act requires that all communication in certain branches of government be recorded on government servers, and it forbids the use of a personal email account for government business, unless those emails are then copied and archived. However, there are a lot of technicalities involved, and there is evidence that other government officials had violated the act. As Alex Howard wrote for the Sunlight Foundation, there is also evidence that Clinton tried to control the discoverability of the emails under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which could set a precedent for limiting public access to government records. It is also believed that Clinton deleted 31,000 emails deemed personal in nature before turning the emails over to the State Department.

Y’know: the wide-open, halfassed, and completely illegal server Slimey Jim Comey conveniently gave her a pass on, using the unprecedented, made-up, and patently absurd “no intent” dodge.

Director Comey recommended against prosecution of the law violations he clearly found on the ground that there was no intent to harm the United States. In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require….The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence.

But there’s another problem. Comey says that Hillary did not evidence “intentional and willful mishandling of classified information” or “vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct” or “efforts to obstruct justice.”

All three were present here.

Y’know: the wide-open, halfassed, and completely illegal server Obama sent and received emails to and from using a fake name, only to deny all knowledge of its existence later.

As I explained in February, when it emerged that the White House was refusing to disclose at least 22 communications Obama had exchanged with then-secretary Clinton over the latter’s private e-mail account, we knew that Obama had knowingly engaged in the same misconduct that was the focus of the Clinton probe: the reckless mishandling of classified information.

To be sure, he did so on a smaller scale. Clinton’s recklessness was systematic: She intentionally set up a non-secure, non-government communications framework, making it inevitable that classified information would be mishandled, and that federal record-keeping laws would be flouted. Obama’s recklessness, at least as far as we know, was confined to communications with Clinton — although the revelation that the man presiding over the “most transparent administration in history” set up a pseudonym to conceal his communications obviously suggests that his recklessness may have been more widespread.

Still, the difference in scale is not a difference in kind. In terms of the federal laws that criminalize mishandling of classified information, Obama not only engaged in the same type of misconduct Clinton did; he engaged in it with Clinton. It would not have been possible for the Justice Department to prosecute Clinton for her offense without its becoming painfully apparent that 1) Obama, too, had done everything necessary to commit a violation of federal law, and 2) the communications between Obama and Clinton were highly relevant evidence.

YOU know, that server. “Not one single hint of scandal or a lie“? Riiiiight. Pull the other one, Gropey Joe. It has a bell on it.

No, HILLARY!™ still won’t be going to prison. Neither will Obama. But truth will out nonetheless; the walls are closing in on them, even if the satisfaction of seeing real justice done will be denied us. History will regard these bumbling, shambolic scoundrels unkindly at best: as the wholly corrupt, dishonest, incompetent hacks they are. Regrettably, that’s gonna have to be enough.

Well, that, and things like this:



Bottoms up, Hils. You’ll NEVER be president.

Update! WHO’S guilty of obstruction of justice again, now?

The subject again was raised during last week’s interview between the president and ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos. “She deleted 33,000 emails from—sent by the United States Congress,” Trump reminded the former Clinton confidante in the Oval Office. “They gave a subpoena to Hillary Clinton for 33,000 emails. After the subpoena was gotten, she deleted them. That’s called obstruction.” Stephanopoulos attempted to brush off the accusations against the wife of his one-time boss by insisting the matter already had “been investigated.”

Trump, however, is correct; Clinton’s missing emails were evidence at the time in both a congressional investigation into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack and several Freedom of Information Act lawsuits. Her family’s nonprofit, the Clinton Foundation, was under increasing scrutiny from both the FBI and Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group. The State Department’s inspector general in 2014 asked four previous secretaries of state—including Clinton—for any emails sent from a private account during their tenure in order to comply with the Federal Records Act.

But Clinton, claiming the emails were of a personal nature, including dish about yoga classes and her daughter’s wedding, authorized the permanent removal of tens of thousands of pages of potential evidence and federal records. To make sure that “even God can’t read them,” as former Representative Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) mocked in August 2016, Clinton’s aides installed a special software program that blocked the retrieval of the documents. FBI investigators failed to locate Clinton’s 13 mobile devices and two iPads that might have contained the missing correspondence; her aides admitted to “breaking [her old BlackBerries] in half or hitting them with a hammer.”

While her mishandling of classified information remains the biggest injustice of the Clinton email scandal, the willful destruction of more than half of the 60,000 emails archived on her private, illicit server also remains an overlooked crime for which no one has been held accountable.

Anyone who “knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation,” is guilty of obstruction of justice, an offense punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Ain’t gonna happen, more’s the pity. But I’d settle for watching her sweat the possibility as she testifies before Congress, Barr, a jury, or all of the above.

To date, according to Judicial Watch—the only entity still interested in pursuing the deleted files—the FBI only has recovered about 5,000 of the 33,000 emails that Team Clinton obliterated from cyberspace.
And although Judicial Watch is scoring wins in court to slowly expose the corruption and, yes, obstruction of justice related to Clinton’s email server, news organizations continue to ignore the subject for the same reasons the media continue to ignore or, worse, justify FISA-gate: Both scandals ultimately lead to Barack Obama.

While Democrats and their accomplices in the media daily shriek that Trump is upending democratic norms and the rule of law, each day offers a new reminder of how the previous administration trashed every legal, political and administrative boundary that once guided fair play. Trump should keep raising this galling contradiction—and force his eventual Democratic presidential opponent to answer for it.

Say, Hils, maybe you should ask Obama if he’d like a tug off your bottle of Old Popskull. He could probably use a stiff belt right about now himself.

The most dangerous game

A sneaky end-run aimed at shattering one of the last jagged shards of Constitutional governance.

While the Supreme Court might rule against allowing an interstate compact to go into effect without the prior Congressional consent that the Constitution’s Article I section 10 requires for states to enter into interstate compacts, it also might not. And since the National Popular Vote folks think they can change the Constitution while flouting the rules for changing the Constitution, they might feel equally free to ignore whatever the Supreme Court tells them the Constitution requires. And whatever can or cannot get through today’s Congress is no guarantee that some future Congress might not find the National Popular Vote acceptable while ignoring the pesky requirement of prior Congressional consent.

Yet the basic reason why the so-called National Popular Vote scheme threatens democracy is that it does not, and cannot, enact a national popular vote that is nationally regulated and supervised. The whole scheme rests on the constitutionally entrenched state control of the selection of presidential electors. What its backers call the “national popular vote” is, as they themselves acknowledge, the aggregate of votes in 51 separate jurisdictions with 51 separate sets of ballot access laws, voter identity checks, and voter eligibility requirements.

And if state officials can’t steal an election legally, they can always do so illegally. In states like Washington and Oregon, which have only mail-in balloting, or in states like California, which allow absentee voting without any demonstrated need, federal authorities cannot in practice keep officials from flooding or allowing activists to flood the “state popular vote” with out-of-state residents with fake addresses, who mail in ballots in every state for which they can download and send in a ballot, or outright ghost voters who are nothing more than a name and a fake registration. With the electoral college as it is, one-party states like California can allow as much fraud and force as they like, but they can only swing their own state’s electoral votes. With the National Popular Vote scheme, California officials can swing Maryland’s and New York’s electoral vote by stuffing ballot boxes without bothering to leave Sacramento.

Can—and most certainly will. The Electoral College remains the most obvious confirmation of the brilliance of the Founders, a means of averting mob rule, and guaranteeing the right of residents of smaller states to a say in their own governance rather than having the entire country ruled according to the arrogant caprice of NY, California, and other shambolic disaster areas.

I’ve long said that the tyrannical depredation most likely to spark Civil War v2.0 is an open, no-shit national attempt at gun confiscation. I still think that’s so, however unlikely it may actually be. But a strong case can be made that the disenfranchisement of great swathes of the country via a contra-Constitutional nullification of the Electoral College by rights ought to be at the very top of the list. Should such an abomination actually come to pass it cannot—it MUST not—be allowed to stand, lest our already-fading birthright be stolen from us entirely, and forever.

I’ve quoted this stark passage many times here already, but it can’t be repeated enough:

But, when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Every word a gem, shining like the brightest of diamonds; how disgracefully far we’ve wandered from a proper dedication to our duty to live up to them.

Mean girls

Unbelievable.

The allegations turned from stealing cookie butter into cold-blooded murder — that he stabbed a wounded teenage ISIS captive to death and mowed down a young girl and old man from a sniper’s roost.

Soon, what started as petty rumors morphed into murder charges against a decorated Navy SEAL in a case that has captured the nation’s — and the president’s — attention.

Those fighting for 40-year-old Chief Special Warfare Operator Eddie Gallagher’s innocence believe he will ultimately be found not guilty when his trial convenes on June 17.

His wife Andrea Gallagher and his brother Sean Gallagher described in recent interviews with Breitbart News how they believe it all happened.

Andrea said it all began when her husband was tapped to lead the worst-performing SEAL Team platoon into the final battle to finish off the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria in Mosul, Iraq, in 2017. It would be his eighth combat deployment and his second time to Mosul.

During the workup to the deployment, Eddie turned it into the No. 1 platoon, she said. However, on the deployment beginning February 2017, things quickly soured between Eddie, who was the platoon chief, and his much-younger subordinate SEALs in their mid-20s.

Some of the platoon members started to complain constantly about the battle rhythm, she said. Eddie scolded them, saying, ‘You guys are not performing…on the SEAL teams, this is how we do it.” He told them to their faces, “You guys are performing like cowards and pussies,” she said.

Andrea said since her husband stayed on target the entire deployment, back at the rest house a “revolt” started. “They would all just b-tch and moan and piss…like high school girls,” she said.

She said the initial campaign was started by four people, including some who had never been in combat before and were not handling the battle rhythm. She said Eddie told them, “What we’re doing is not anything over and above what the call of duty is. This is standard operating procedure.”

“It’s just very weird juxtaposition of this warrior community that’s been infiltrated by these weaker minded individuals that can’t be told what to do, they don’t respect authority, in fact they usurp authority and they don’t think that they’re accountable to anyone or anything,” she said.

She said around March 2018, the accusers decided they wanted three things. “They decided that what they wanted — the end goal was three things, they wanted my husband off of TRADET, they wanted my husband stripped of his silver star that they had put him in for. They also wanted him not to pick up E-8,” she said.

Sean said Eddie did such a good job in Mosul that he was named the “number one SEAL chief of the number one SEAL platoon.” “These dudes were pissed about that, they’re like, ‘well this guy put us in danger,’” he said.

Uhhhh—ladies, you’re SEALs. Danger is your business, ferchrissakes.

As for that 17-year-old ISIS fighter Gallagher is supposed to have “murdered,” I’ll repeat what I said the first time I wrote about this rancid goatfuck: I do not give a moist fart about the means by which any ISIS fighter winds up cold, stiff, and stinking—much less how old he, she, or it might be. As long as the Tango ends up dead, dead, dead, I am a-okay with whatever the backstory might be.

Much more to this sickening story at the link, including an appearance by the conniving, lying JAG-off primarily responsible for Gallagher’s ongoing persecution. “Cowards and pussies”? Hey, if the shoe fits, dude-ettes; sometimes, you just gotta call a spade a spade. It’s a disturbing condemnation of Navy SpecWar’s apparently “evolving” standards that such toxic little bitches ever got through BUDs in the first place.

Wait, WHAT?!?

The circus at the border just went full Kafka.

You can’t make this stuff up. There is warfare-level violence right on our border between rival factions of cartels. Then the losing side comes to our border for asylum, states and county sheriffs are forced to deal with the security threats on their own, and the federal government continues to view this as an immigration issue, not a national defense problem that requires military protection of our border.

Late Monday into Tuesday, there was a significant increase in violence between rival Sinaloa cartel factions in Mexican towns Agua Prieta and Naco, both border towns with Arizona cities Douglas and Naco. Specifically, about nine people were killed in Agua Prieta and Naco, according to Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels. The sheriff told CR in an interview today that his sources told him on Tuesday “the plaza boss for Sinaloa in Agua Prieta got upset with one of the leaders of his team and wiped out the entire team, including the girlfriend of the lower boss.” Dannels told CR that the shootout happened just “half a block from the border” with Douglas, Arizona. Two adults and three children were taken to hospitals in Douglas and Tucson.

Sheriff Dannels confirmed to me the local media reports that four Sinaloa members requested asylum at the Douglas port of entry following the gun battle. While the status of those people is still unclear, just the fact that cartel members have the confidence that they have a shot at asylum is very disturbing.

“I just sit back and shake my head every day. It’s almost as if the politicians are desensitized to the border situation. They don’t realize that these cartels are bad, bad people and employ the same violence that the terrorists do. They just sit back and think all is well at our border. Where is the federal government in all of this? Sheriffs at the border have been a champion of this cause and the line [border] agents get it. But where’s the leadership from D.C.?”

The Uniparty “leadership” in DC has no interest in re-establishing the border, and no intention of allowing it.

The pattern in Arizona seems to be following that of Texas, in which the worst skirmishes are taking place at the border plazas that share space with the most populous America cities at the border. Those are the areas where the migrants are flowing. Thus, the immigration is inextricably linked to the cartel warfare and vying for control of the smuggling routes, which makes this a national security issue. If Trump designated the cartels as terrorists and directed military operations against them, it would completely transform this from asylum law to national security law.

And about three minutes later some liberal judge in Hawaii would issue an order preventing it, “pending further review,” which Congress would backstop. Meanwhile, bureaucrats at the DHS will covertly spring into action to thwart any such initiative from Trump. Something else to ponder:

President Donald Trump said Monday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin mass deportations of illegal immigrants starting next week.

The president indicated that ICE intends on attempting to remove the millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. According to a Pew Research Center study released last week, 10.5 million “unauthorized” immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2017.

“Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States,” Trump tweeted late Monday night. “They will be removed as fast as they come in.”

The president has reportedly been planning to ramp up deportations for some time. Immigration officials who spoke to The Washington Post in May said former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief Kirstjen Nielsen may have been ousted partially because of her opposition to such a plan.

Nonetheless, multiple senior administration officials told The Daily Caller last month that the president was still planning on removing illegal immigrants from the U.S., and may even use the powers of the Insurrection Act to do so.

And about three minutes later some liberal judge in Hawaii would issue an order preventing it etc etc. And round and round the merry-go-round in Clown World Happy Fun Amusement Park will go, spinning ever on until its bearings seize up and We All. Fall. down.

The ground has shifted, no further notice

As promised, more defiance from one of Kurt’s more enjoyable pieces.

Take this idiocy about the newly discovered TREASONOUS TREACHERY OF TREASON that is taking oppo from grimy foreigners. Trump said (and I paraphrase), “Sure, I guess if some alien offered me dirt on whichever groper, fake Cherokee, Mad magazine mascot or skateboarding furry the Democrats nominate I’d listen,” and the lib elite lifted off into the highest of dudgeons.

“This is his worst treason since his last worst treason!” they thundered. “This is even more treasonous than when The Bad Orange Man called us ‘traitors’ for our treachery after we called him ‘traitor’ for two years!” 

They got really, really upset. Fake upset, of course, but they committed to the bit and kept straight faces. And you know that Trump pulled the pin on that hand grenade of truth on purpose in order to make the dummies explode just like they did. 

You have to wonder if the garbage elite really thinks their brand of blatant hypocrisy disguised as moral outrage works, or if this is just a reflexive response to a president who not only sees them for the useless slugs they are, but says so.

Oh, I’m quite sure it’s both. But why wouldn’t they expect it to work? It always has before, and there are still plenty enough outdated, vintage Republicans perfectly willing to bend the knee, tug the forelock, and apologize for their outrageous incivility rattling around the old DC digs to convince them that, after this Brief Unpleasantness, things will slide comfortably back into the same old greasy grooves.

Still, do any of them truly think that we Normals will listen to them sounding off about the perfidy of perhaps considering the possibility of maybe accepting dirt on their freak show candidates from outsiders and not recall that Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit famously did just that with the pee-pee dossier, or that Adam Schiff got punked by a couple of Russian Howard Stern wannabeskis offering him pics of the POTUS au natural?

When Staggers O’Cankles does it, it’s cool? When Congressman Leaky does it, it’s fine? Yet when Trump says he might do exactly what they did, it’s the greatest betrayal of our Values, our Constitution and our Democracy since his last greatest betrayal of our Values, our Constitution and our Democracy, which happened last week?

They have to hope we will. At this point, it’s all they have left.

Who actually still cares about this nonsense? It can’t be aimed at converting us. We know they think we’re dumb, but are they so stupid, so utterly unable to correctly and objectively assess their opponents (us), that they really believe they can Ted Lieu on our legs and tell us it’s raining, and that we’ll just nod and join in their never-ending chant of “Orange Man Bad?”

I don’t they hope to convert us. I think they hope to cow us—to intimidate us, to shut us down. Like I said, it’s worked quite nicely for them until now. Anyone looking for reasons why Trump unhinges them so completely will find plenty of them. But really, you could stop right there, with just the one.

To the extent our modern elite had retained any residual credibility from back in the distant past when our elite wasn’t totally corrupt and incompetent, that goodwill has been squandered in the wake of its war to crush Trump, which is actually a war to crush us and restore the elite’s unchallenged power. 

Annnnd BINGO. Right there it is.

Escalator ride of Destiny

Another Steyn rerun that bears repeating, re-posting, and re-reading. From the intro:

Three weeks after Donald Trump launched his campaign – on July 10th 2015 – I wrote the column below on the two old white males shaking up their respective nominating contests. Four years on, Bernie is running again in an entirely Berniefied party: His rivals are all presenting themselves as merely younger, comelier, blacker, gayer versions of the original, or in the case of the pitiful Joe Biden, unloading every morning positions he’s held for half-a-century, an even more geriatric Bernie. On the right there are NeverTrumpers but on the left no NeverBernies.

Is it necessary to say anything about those NeverTrumpers? The guys who told us it was a stunt, he’d be out by Labor Day, he wouldn’t win a single primary… Some very smart people were just incredibly stupid. My old National Review colleague Kevin Williamson:

Witless Ape Rides Escalator

Soooo, how’d all that work out for ya, Kev? Here’s how: shortly after the gratuitous, nasty bit of snobbery above, dear old ULTRASUPERTRUECONSERVATIVE!!! Kevin tried his hand at another act of typical Conservative Inc rumpswabbery: peddling his wares in the rarified climes of The Atlantic—from whence he was sent back, howling and tail tucked, to his comfy NRO sinecure with a quickness. He’s still licking his wounds and hacking away at Trump from there.

Kevin and a lot of others – including many of the right’s most illustrious names – didn’t grasp how disconnected Conservatism, Inc had become from its base. Donor-servicing masquerading as doctrinal purity had fewer and fewer takers, even before you offer it in the ludicrous form of a third Bush presidency in twenty-five years. Actual voters wanted something else, and no house-trained Republican was willing to give it to them. So cometh the hour, cometh the witless ape. Four years on, the Democrats have a base, Trump has a base, but, as Bill Kristol and The Weekly Standard learned the hard way, it’s not clear pre-Trump Republicanism has any base at all.

True, unlike Bernie re the Dems, the President does not preside over a wholly Trumpified Republican Party. The Ryan-McConnell Congress spent the new commander-in-chief’s first two years acting as if the program that got him elected was so self-evidently crazy they didn’t need to go anywhere near it. They’re still figuring Trump is an aberration, and that once he’s gone normal business will resume and they can go back to nominating milquetoast candidates who know how to give a great concession speech.

The closer of Steyn’s rerun piece:

The Donald is not really a conservative, nor much of a Republican. He’s given more or less evenhandedly to both parties over the decades, because, at Trump’s level, that’s just the price of doing business in a sclerotic and corrupt republic. The Clintons attended one of his weddings, because, for New York operators, that’s like the King of Spain attending the Prince of Wales’ wedding: it’s just A-list power-schmoozing. Whether the Chinese Politburo would respond positively to a President Trump whose opening conversational gambit is “Now listen, you muthaf**kers” is doubtful.

Yet Trump, like other philosophically erratic politicians from Denmark to Greece, has tapped into a very basic strain of cultural conservatism: the question of how far First World peoples are willing to go in order to extinguish their futures on the altar of “diversity”.

As Ann Coulter’s new book Adios, America! lays out in remorseless detail, Kate Steinle is dead because the entire Democratic Party, two-thirds of the Republican Party and 100 per cent of the diseased federal-state-municipal bureaucracy prioritizes myths over reality. Yes, it’s distressing to persons of taste and discrimination that the only person willing to address that reality is Donald Trump. But that’s because he’s not the reality-show freak here. The fake-o lame-o reality freakshow is the political pseudo-campaign being waged within the restraints demanded by the media and Macy’s. So, if Donald Trump is the only guy willing to bust beyond those bounds, we owe him a debt of gratitude. If, as Karl Rove proposes, other candidates are able to talk about the subject in a more “inclusive” way, so be it. But, if “inclusive” is code for not addressing it at all, nuts to that.

Step back and let’s be bipartisan about what Rove calls the “disruptiveness” factor: Be honest, which would you prefer and which is a bleaker comment on the political health of the republic – Bernie vs the Donald? Or Hillary vs Jeb?

Unfortunately, Steyn is wrong for once when he names Trump’s Big Bee-yooty-ful Wall proposal as his most consequential act as President. As we’ve seen, he’s been thwarted at every turn on that one, and will continue to be. A seriously effective border wall will never be in play as long as the Vichy GOPe remains on the field.

It’s disappointing, sure. But politically at least, Trump isn’t entirely wrong to adjust his rhetoric to a more modest position, declare victory anyway, and move on, pecking away at the Wall as and when he can without doing damage to himself. His only other option is to go to outright, full-tilt war with Mordor On The Potomac entire—something I’d actually love to see, but unlikely in the extreme due to Trump’s old-fashioned patriotism and his stubborn if erroneous belief that the American ship of state can be righted and put back on its proper course. Total, scorched-earth war against the hopelessly corrupt establishment would be simply too alien, way out of character for him, and it’s unrealistic to expect it.

No, Schlichter knows what Trump’s real achievement is, and it’s something that almost nobody but me (ahem) saw coming:

The greatest thing about Donald Trump is how his election has caused our enemies to reveal exactly what kind of seedy, corrupt weasels they truly are. 

Yep. The most important thing Trump has done—UNEXPECTED!™—is to clarify the battle lines, expose the frauds (or drive them to expose themselves), lift the lid on the boiling cauldron of Deep State worms, and reduce the Democrat-Socialists and their freakshow-base to uncontrollable paroxysms of daylight barking madness.

In short: he has lifted Real Americans from their accustomed defensive crouch and demonstrated what the offensive might accomplish. In graphic terms, Trump is what I’ve always said he is; this, right here.

TrumpGig.jpg

From Real Americans to you—all of you—from deep in our trousers, with feeling: Swamp rats; shitlibs; butt-sucking, fake-“conservative” NeverTrumpTards one and all; Enemedia propaganda hacks; jet-setting Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly “the weather”) alarmists; witless, hectoring Hollywood twits and entertainment-industry celebutards; scurrilous race-pimping grifters; imported Muslim grievance-mongers like Omar and Talib; man-hating, home-wrecking Feminazis; LGBTQWERTY fruits, flakes, and nuts who get in our faces to demand not tolerance but applause; and the whole goddamnable flea-circus of rent-seeking, crony-corporatist assholes, from soup to bugfuck nuts.

Yes, we really, really mean it. To paraphrase a maudlin, sobbing Sally Field’s Oscar-night ejaculation: We don’t like you. We really don’t like you.

More rich, buttery goodness from the Schlichter piece coming, which I’ll jailbreak into a separate post because reasons.

Gotta love it

I especially like the subhed here: “Barr’s bloodhounds are sniffing up Langley’s skirts.” His lips. God’s ears.

Last Wednesday the intelligence community launched its first attack on Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into its illegal acts and abuses of power during the 2016 election. In a New York Times article entitled “Justice Department Seeks to Question CIA in its Own Russia Investigation,” the IC makes clear its fear of the results of Barr’s investigation of their spy operation on candidate Trump in 2016 that continued through his early presidency.

John Durham, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, is running the investigation under Barr’s direction. From the Times report, we can easily deduce the fact that those who ran the spy op — including CIA Director Gina Haspel — are running scared from the Durham investigation.

The reason the CIA’s “analytical work” is being subjected to a federal prosecutor’s scrutiny is that there is a lot of evidence of criminal conduct by the CIA and FBI. That’s one of the fundamental differences between the Barr/Durham investigation and the Mueller investigation into the imaginary conspiracy between candidate Trump and his campaign and the Russians.

Mueller & Co. had no evidence that a crime had been committed before their investigation began. (Or after, for that matter.) The Mueller investigation was, as I’ve noted elsewhere, consistent with the method used by Stalin’s secret police chief Lavrenti Beria: show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.

In the Barr/Durham investigation, it’s pretty damned clear that in their abuse of power under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act the FBI, and possibly the CIA, made false statements to the FISA court, under oath, to justify surveillance warrants on Carter Page and others. Those false statements — sworn affidavits in support of the FISA warrants — are, at least, violations of 18 U.S. Code Section 1001 which bars such false statements. Those are real crimes, not imaginary ones. Whatever other crimes are discovered while investigating them will come out as well.

Yet another one you folks are going to want to savor every last word of.

Great minds

Richard hips us to this article from the Bee wherein they recognize the awesome, awesome greatness of a certain band—both musically and, umm…well, uhhh…

Yes, it’s the Bee again. I am, however, unprepared to render judgment as to whether or not it’s satire in this particular case.

Banned for Badthink

Looks like another liberal just got mugged by reality, learning the hard way that Commies sure do love them some purges.

Pride — with its messages of love, acceptance and self-expression — is a sham, according to conservative gay rights activist Brandon Straka.

The 42-year-old Harlem hairdresser said the gay community turned its back on him once the former “diehard liberal” — who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — switched to the Republican Party.

According to a complaint filed Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court and exclusively obtained by The Post, the LGBT Center in Greenwich Village discriminated against Straka by canceling his 250-person WalkAway event “LGBT TownHall” in March, days before it was scheduled to take place.

The event was to feature Straka and a panel of two gay men and a transgender woman talking about why they left the Democratic Party.

Straka left the Democrats in 2017 after growing “fed up with the liberal-media lies,” he said.

He founded the WalkAway campaign, which encourages voters of all stripes to leave the Democratic Party, in May 2018.

Straka, who is dating a fellow conservative, said he learned his WalkAway event was canceled by reading the news on the LGBT Center’s website.

In its statement of cancellation, the center wrote: “We reserve the right to cancel any event that promotes discriminatory speech or bigotry; negatively impacts other groups or individuals … Permitting this event to proceed would make many of our community members feel unsafe.”

As part of Straka’s suit, he alleges that the center’s statement was “intentionally defamatory.”

(The LGBT Center did not respond to a request for comment.)

Well, of COURSE they didn’t.

As a result of losing his community, Straka said, he won’t be marching in this year’s Pride parade.

“It was always my favorite day of the year,” he said. “It’s turned into one big anti-Trump rally.”

Now, he added, seeing the city blanketed in rainbow flags and slogans of love of acceptance only strikes him as “hypocritical … It’s pretty hollow. Right now, the focus of this community is the hatred of this president and anyone who supports him. The so-called love they espouse is not compatible with their relentless hatred in the name of resistance.”

Well, of COURSE it isn’t. They’re liars, they’re frauds, they’re hysterics; they’re authoritarian, totalitarian, and rigidly intolerant of dissenting views. None of that should come as any surprise. What, did you think they were only joking when they were screaming “the personal is political” or something?

Unforced errors

He chose…poorly.

House GOP leadership is now convinced FBI Director Christopher Wray is not cooperating with Bill Barr and John Durham’s investigation into the origins of Spygate.

According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, GOP Reps believe Wray is part of the cover-up of Spygate after burying documents and refusing to make people available for interviews.
 
SPERRY: House GOP leadership has soured on Comey replacement Wray. They r now convinced Wray’s not part of the FBI cleanup & not cooperating w AG Barr & is in fact part of the cover-up of #SpyGate scandal after burying documents & refusing to make people available for interview

Swamp creature FBI Director Wray and FBI brass have yet to condemn the Obama administration spying on the opposition party during the 2016 election.

Last month Wray told the Senate Appropriations Committee that Bill Barr’s use of the word “spying” to describe the spying on the Trump campaign and administration was “not the term I would use.

Wray also told the committee he has no evidence the Obama administration was spying on Trump.

President Trump has had enough.

I should fucking well hope so. I should also hope he’s finally learned the long-overdue lesson about what appointing Obama stay-behinds and Deep State crawly things to high administration positions will get him. He’s done way too much of that already, and it’s never failed yet to bite him in the ass. As Bill puts it:

And right here is a perfect example of Trump’s oft-repeated error of shooting himself in the foot when it comes to his appointments.

FBI Director Wray was appointed to the position by President Donald Trump.

Worse, he did so after his terrible experience with FBI Director Comey, which should have led him to take extra care in choosing with whom to replace Comey. PB had it nailed early on.  I didn’t post much on it, because I mistakenly assumed Trump knew what he was doing with the appointment. But he didn’t. And so here we are.

Now, I know the Local Fan Club will tell me how Donald had no choice, or there was no way to know, or any of a host of excuses for this, but the fact remains: Wray had a track record, it was indicative, and it was ignored. And so now we have Trump in the weird position of having appointed Wray to a ten year position which was confirmed by Congress, being faced with the prospect of firing his own guy (who will be cheered on as a hero of the Resistance by all the usual suspects, and who will claim that any such firing would be obstruction of justice worthy of immediate impeachment).

Now, I don’t necessarily fear impeachment, but I think it is possible to be a bit too blithe about it. Once something like that is set in train, nobody really knows how it might turn out, and I’m not thrilled about taking too many chances with it.

I do understand that the pool of actual conservatives able and willing to run a large department like the FBI is a bit thin on the ground, but there are hazards to going back to the same corrupt Deep State well over and over again.

There certainly are. You made much of your intention to “hire the best people” during your campaign, Mr President. These Swamp shitweasels are NOT them. And, with all due respect, allowing them to continue festering in place is NOT what the American people hired you to do.

Have an (exploding) cigar

Curses, foiled again!

WASHINGTON DC (AP) – After over two years of attempting to arrest, indict, embarrass, harm, stop, stall, or even marginally interfere with the implacable forward progress of President Trump using a wide array of convoluted tricks, schemes, and scandals, Congressional Democrats are now determined to exact retribution for their continual failures from the ACME Manufacturing Company, Inc., claiming that the company’s products are both defective and hazardous, and that they have consistently allowed President Trump to get away.

During this time period, numerous Democrats have used ACME products in their political machinations, however, due to the humiliation involved, very few were willing to discuss their experiences on the record. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi offered the following statement.

“I remember when Trump called me into the Oval Office to discuss funding the border wall, and I had this feeling that he might try leaving before I could get on camera and cut him down with childish name-calling. So I took some ACME Wall Paint and made a fake archway into the next room. Sure enough, 2 minutes into the meeting, he runs out, but somehow he runs THROUGH the archway I painted. I tried running through the archway after him, but I hit the wall face-first and splayed out flat against it. That’s why I have this bandage on my nose. It is NOT – as some people have suggested – from cosmetic surgery. That’s the other bandage on my nose.”

At the time we interviewed Senator Chuck Schumer after his Trump experience, he had been compressed into a two-foot tall cylinder with just his arms and legs sticking out. As it was difficult to understand him over the accordion noises he made with every step, the interview was brief.

“Fell off a cliff. ACME anvil fell on me. ACME umbrella did nothing. I don’t wanna talk about it,” Schumer said before accordioning away.

By way of comment on the investigation, President Trump offered only the single brief and cryptic tweet: “Meep Meep”.

Okay y’all, I’m thinking this one just might be satire too.

Unwon wars, filled graves

WRSA gives us a steer to an oldie but still-relevant goodie from Codevilla explaining why we no longer win wars, and never will again.

The shape of U.S. foreign policy for most of the 20th century and into our own time was set by Progressive Republican statesmen, Elihu Root and Henry L. Stimson. They believed that military action should be pursued, if at all, for international peace and order, not to advance specifically American interests. Their colleagues—Andrew Carnegie, Nicholas Murray Butler, and David Starr Jordan (Herbert Hoover’s mentor)—were outright pacifists. Democrats Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Cordell Hull (FDR’s secretary of state for almost 12 years, longer than any American has ever served in that office), and their successors, Dean Acheson and Harry Truman, turned the idea of international order into realities: the League of Nations, United Nations, and subsequent permanent alliances embodying “collective security.” That ruling Progressive consensus has determined America’s military objectives ever since, and largely deprived America of peace.

By 1950, polite society—which excluded the American people’s vast majority—was well-nigh unanimous that victory and peace, as well as the very notion of an overriding, peculiarly American national interest, were concepts that belonged to the age of the dinosaurs. Military officers however were mostly dinosaurs, the most prominent of whom was General of the Army Douglas MacArthur. His conquest of the western Pacific in World War II, followed by the 1950 masterstroke that reversed military defeat in Korea, had captivated American opinion. By firing MacArthur in April 1951, President Truman began to enforce polite society’s wisdom on the military. By the end of the Vietnam war some 20 years later, that wisdom about war and peace conquered the Democratic Party wholly, spread to much of the Republican Party, and to the senior U.S. officer corps, too. Hence, since 1951, America’s renowned generals—Matthew Ridgway, William Westmoreland, Colin Powell, and David Petraeus—have brought only stalemate, defeat, waste, and more war, while drawing down the nation’s reservoir of respect.

As you might expect, our slow slide from WW2 victory into hapless, floundering futility was instigated by a dithering Democrat president more concerned with political appearances than winning wars; he tied the hands of a competent general, refused to clarify his wartime goals when directly asked, then saw to it that the general was smeared as an over-ambitious dictator-in-waiting with political ambitions of his own—an unjust tarring, helped along by a partisan mainstream media, that has stained his reputation to this very day.

Washington’s “responsible officials,” up to and including Truman, refused to take responsibility for ordering any course of action whatever. Brands gives the fuller account. MacArthur, the option of victory having been denied, asked, “Is the present objective of United States political policy to maintain a military position in Korea—indefinitely, for a limited time, or to minimize losses by evacuation as soon as it can be accomplished?” Brands writes, “Dean Acheson read MacArthur’s letter with astonishment,” saying afterwards that MacArthur was “incurably recalcitrant and basically disloyal to the purposes of his commander in chief.” But what were these purposes, and how did they translate into how and why American draftees were dying?

Truman, on advice of his counselors, had resisted bipartisan calls for a declaration of war. Such a request would have forced his administration to define and submit its objectives to a vote by both Houses of Congress. But by creating the fiction that the war was by, of, and for the United Nations, Truman et al. believed they were gaining flexibility, which is of great strategic value—but only to leaders who know what they’re doing. But Truman and his advisors did not, so their flexibility and disunity acted like a sail in the winds of events.

Truman, after convening the National Security Council, also chose not to answer MacArthur’s request for orders. “This present telegram is not to be taken in any sense as a directive. Its purpose is to give you something of what is in our minds.” U.S. troops’ successful resistance would demonstrate that aggression does not pay and would encourage others to believe in America’s pledges of assistance. “We recognize, of course, that continued resistance might not be militarily possible with the limited forces with which you are being called upon to meet large Chinese armies…if we must withdraw from Korea, it [must] be clear to the world that that course is forced upon us by military necessity.” Translated from bureaucratese, the message was: hold on with the forces and restrictions you’ve got, regardless of how many American lives it costs.

And cost it did. Some three fourths of the Americans killed in Korea died after the U.S. government stopped trying to win the war. Since Truman’s decision taught the world that no-win wars were now the American ruling class’s modus operandi, the cost of three later generations’ wars, including the incalculable toll of domestic decay resulting from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, should also be added in.

And so Truman, despite such scurrilous waffling and weaseling, goes down in history as “Give ’em hell Harry”—a tough, flinty-eyed president and CinC, who brooked no nonsense when it came to defending the Constitution and the nation—while MacArthur is remembered as an egotistical megalomaniac—a blustering, incompetent would-be despot whose reach, thankfully, far exceeded his grasp. Truman’s record, now pretty much buried for all practical purposes, speaks for itself; let MacArthur’s own parting words speak for him:

MacArthur returned from Korea to a conquering hero’s reception: ticker-tape parades and a speech to a joint session of Congress. The pledge he made and kept to “just fade away” belied the contention that he had tried to usurp the Constitution, and bolstered the two warnings he left his fellow citizens. First, “In war, there is no substitute for victory.” Forgetting something so very basic had been no mere mistake, but a symptom of moral decay. Hence his other warning: “History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

And we haven’t won a war since—not because we can’t, but because we won’t. And until and unless that changes—stipulating, of course, that we should always be very damned careful and conscientious about doing so in the first place—we damned well need to make sure we don’t get into any more of them.

Comeuppance, chaos, and collapse

Okay, this is most certainly NOT satire. I mean, it isn’t the Bee, so it can’t be. Right?

We are constantly enlightened by the social justice community in our universities and media to the undeniable truth that Western civilization is a feral colonial enterprise, that its free market system is an abomination predicated on the exploitation of the world’s disadvantaged, and that its advances in science, technology, medicine, art, the concept of the individual, political democracy, law and the amenities of everyday life offer little to be proud of.

Notwithstanding, we may wonder why this slough of despond we deplorables inhabit is the obvious goal and destination of a volkswanderung of immigrants, refugees, migrants and “illegals” from countries they apparently cannot wait to leave in their dust, whether in the Middle East, Africa or Central America. Are these poor people deluded? Are they a collection of dedicated masochists? Do they not realize they are entering the Ninth Circle of Hell? But they persist, unfathomably. Or perhaps not. Perhaps they are animated by a higher purpose.

Clearly, Western culture should be sent to the chop shop, dismantled piece by piece, and sold off to the newcomers. They may conceivably reassemble the parts into something far superior than the civilizational vehicle we’ve been driving around in. Indeed, these “parts” may have been theirs in the first place. We have been guilty of so much in the past, of condescension as well as outright plunder. We are obviously morally obligated to cheer them on, to surrender our “white supremacy” in favor of the nobility, wisdom and cultural glory of Third World saviors and aboriginal peoples. Perhaps we should be grateful to our betters for bringing the manifold fruits of their accomplishments to our wide-open doors. Perhaps that is their real agenda, bless their souls.

There are many unsuspected facts we will now have to accept. Socrates was black. Jesus was a Palestinian. The Library of Alexandria didn’t really burn to the ground before Aristotle’s purported visit. The Muslim caliphates did not, as we have been misled to believe, rely on Syriac and Jewish scholiasts for their epistemological talents. Christopher Columbus was a heartless marauder—and, besides, he was after the fact since African sailors had visited these shores thousands of years earlier, as Leo Weiner reveals in Africa and the Discovery of America.

Okay, I think I got it now. It ain’t satire; it’s sarcasm. But it’s also a faithfully accurate summation of Progtard ideology and opinion, too. Solway hones it to a razor-sharp edge with this part:

The fact that America and Europe have garnered 474 Nobel Prizes in Science while Egypt and Algeria have three between them and the rest of Africa none—is only a sign of Western decadence and the obvious fact that Third World countries have been savagely kept down by the Western conquistador onslaught responsible for stealing the discoveries and inventions of the now benighted continent. The United Nations Human Development Index (HDI) tells the same story, ranking 185 nations along the spectrum of Very High, High, Medium and Low. Of the 51 nations in the Very High category, 80% are white; no African nation is in that category; indeed, 87% fester in the Low bracket. Once again, the responsibility incontrovertibly lies with the Western spirit of pillage and destruction, which has robbed these nations of the fruits of their cutting-edge thinking and contributions to human betterment and expropriated these for its own purposes.

Well, it would HAVE to be our fault, wouldn’t it? I mean, otherwise, we might have to take ourselves a long, hard look at some painful realities—all of them extremely unfriendly to shitlib “thought”—forcing us to then rethink a few things. And God knows we can’t be having any of that, now can we?

Unclear and confuscated

Obligatory disclaimer: yes, it’s the Bee, and I do know it’s satire. Or, as their new subscription-solicitation box pronounces: “Fake news you can trust, delivered straight to your inbox.”

And yes, I signed up for it.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a special session called to order Friday, Congress voted unanimously to do a complete overhaul of Father’s Day, renaming the holiday “Toxic Masculinity Awareness Day” and redefining the day’s meaning to encourage citizens to heap shame and disgust on all fathers, current or potential.

Americans across the country excitedly prepared to celebrate the updated holiday designed to shame fathers and all things masculine as the weekend approached.

“It was just time,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan, citing the high numbers of depression and anxiety among men as “a good sign things are progressing in the right direction, but we still have a lot of work to do before all men, everywhere do the right thing and hate themselves with the appropriate level of vehemence.” The new initiative seeks to have all men wailing in the streets in sackcloth and ashes, flagellating and weeping with shame and regret for their harmful, problematic masculinity.

The rewritten holiday guidelines suggest cancelling any gift orders for cigars or plans to take dad out for steak and instead sitting dad on the floor in the living room and repeatedly shaming him for being part of the problem, saying things like “Take that money you were going to spend on a beard trimmer and instead donate it to women’s rights.” The government also established an associated website, ToxicFathersDay.gov, where you can download a free card to give your father that reads, “This isn’t your day any more. Do better.”

Okay, I THINK it’s satire. Maybe not; it’s so hard to tell these days, and attaching that “statement” to Paul RINO ain’t helping to keep the lines clear either. Here, let’s try another one.

U.S.—While everyone has a mother–a necessity in every family for raising and providing for the children–there is a second type of parent some people have called a “father.” It is unknown what purpose this seemingly vestigial parent provides, but today is a holiday known as Father’s Day, where the existence of fathers is acknowledged even if their purpose is unknown.

There had been concerns in the past that fathers actually were harmful to families because of their toxic masculinity, but that masculinity has been tamed in recent years. Now they’re relatively harmless and can help with chores around the house–though usually only under tight supervision, as they’re not very good at them–and can occasionally watch the children–though this again can cause trouble, as they often irritate the children with bad jokes.

While no one recommends having a father, if you know of one, today is the day to tell him, “There you are.” Scientists expect fathers to completely disappear in the next few decades, though, as they’re replaced with an automated device that can both kill spiders and say, “Nice to meet you, Hungry.”

Yep, I think it’s satire. I THINK.

Know what the real problem with the Bee is, though? Every danged time I look in over there I wind up wanting to excerpt EVERYthing here. They just suck me right in every time, and whenever I find myself immersed therein it’s so enjoyable that I don’t want to come back out again.

Update! Exhibit A in support of that last ‘graph of mine.

Covert Navy SEAL Team Really Starting To Regret Wearing These Pride Month Uniforms
RAQQA, SYRIA—A Navy SEAL Team recently expressed regret in showing support for Pride Month after their new uniforms gave away their position in a covert operation to infiltrate an ISIS stronghold. Seal Captain James McKeever says they endured heavy gunfire after the little rainbow flags poking up off of their shoulder area drew the enemy’s attention. “The whole mission was a bust. We barely made it out alive.”

The SEAL team is now being investigated for hate speech after expressing such clearly unpatriotic and anti-gay opinions. “To refuse to wear a bright, rainbow-covered frog suit on a covert ops mission is the definition of anti-gay bias,” said investigator Janice Gillespie. “They will be duly reprimanded.”

See? You SEE what I mean, dammit?

Updated update! An incredibly moving Father’s Day tribute that is DEFINITELY not satirical.

The men of 8th Company were much older now and not as lean as the men — boys, really — who appeared in the photos from 1950-51. Most carried extra weight around the middle, had the leathery skin that came with years of overexposure to the sun, and old tattoos that had purpled with age on biceps and calves that were not as hard and chiseled as they once were — but you didn’t try to tell them that. Like old athletes, they spoke with as much bravado as ever.

I had to smile. It had been my privilege to be raised in the company of such men. They could be profane and the jokes were always off-color. They were, to a man, hard-drinking and chain-smoking. They incessantly complained about the army and were fiercely proud of their part in it. Ornery and ready to fight each other, they were nonetheless ready to die for each other, too. Their vices were ever near the surface and yet, I cannot imagine where America would be without their kind.

I was 20 years old and sat silently watching and listening as I so often did when my father swapped war stories with other veterans. But this time it was different. These weren’t just any veterans; these were the men with whom he had shed blood. This would be his last reunion and it was important to him that I be there. As the son of an 8th Company Ranger, I was, like other sons, an honorary member of this very exclusive club and therefore allowed to participate on the periphery of their banter — and fetch them beer. Lots of beer. Ranger reunions were impossible without beer. And with middle-aged men, that meant frequent trips to the bathroom.

With my father away for a moment on just that sort of mission, one of his old buddies leaned in as if to tell me a secret:

“If any man was ever born to be a soldier, it was your father. Some men have an instinct for the battlefield, and he damn sure did. Absolutely the best shot I ever saw. Could hit flies at a hundred yards. And, man, he was fearless…”

My father, returning, rolled his eyes: “That’s bulls–t, Mike. I was as afraid as any man.”

He turned to me. “It’s as I’ve told you before, son, a man who is truly fearless will get you killed. There’s something wrong with him. His instincts don’t tell him to be afraid when he should be. You want a man on point who wants to stay alive just like you do and whose senses are telling him ‘something’s not right here’ when there’s reason to believe you’re walking into an ambush. Now Mike here, was a helluva point man…” This was all very typical. They extolled each other’s battlefield heroics, but not their own.

All of these men dealt with the psychological wounds of war whether they ever received a Purple Heart or not. My mother tells me that my father suffered from hideous nightmares to the day he died, a recurring one being that he had fallen into a thinly covered mass grave full of bodies in a state of decomposition. Though he fights to climb out over the bodies, the rotten flesh slides off the bones as he grips them and their flesh remained on him for days until he could bathe, a luxury not afforded to men behind enemy lines. Though he would never say, she thinks the nightmare reflected an actual occurrence. I wager all of these men had nightmares of war.

Years later, as he lay on his deathbed delirious from the heavy doses of morphine, he returned to the battlefield. I will never forget his words, a command shouted with urgency and authority: “Cover the left flank! Cover the left flank! Move! Move! Move!” The order was repeated along with something about laying down suppression fire. Whatever the battle he was in, he was reliving it and he was determined to hold the line. In that moment, I prayed that the Lord would take him. He was suffering the horror of war all over again.

The next afternoon, his chest, heaving and belabored for days, relaxed and the air left his lungs in one long sigh. My father was dead.

Trust me when I assure you that you absolutely MUST read all of this. Keep the hankies close at hand when you do. And wonder where we ever found such men, and whether we’ll ever see their like again. Pray to God that we do; sooner or later, as surely as the Sun rises, we’re going to need them.

Long may they wave

The greatest rock and roll band there ever was, or ever will be. If you have your computer-box connected to some half-decent speakers, you want to crank this mother WAY the fuck up.



This one even more so.




Of course I’ve written plenty here about this band, and I’ll probably write plenty more still. There simply is just no one like ’em: no one who can take those same old three rock and roll chords, that same old throbbing one-note bass line, and that same old pounding rhythm and do more with them than these Aussie titans. One can only imagine what it must feel like to stand on the stage, give your guitar a vicious whack, and having a mighty blast of sound like that erupt forth as your reward.

And one doesn’t want to imagine what it must feel like now, when all that power and glory is lost to you forever, never to wash over you again. Being in that same position now—hands crippled after more than thirty years of chasing that same dragon with at least some small success myself—I can tell you just what it feels like.

It SUCKS.

My old H-D shop boss and I were listening to some of this stuff and just shooting the shit earlier today, and he told me a story I had never heard before. According to Goose, in the early days Angus Young—now and forever associated with the Gibson SG he played for most of his career—actually played a Les Paul, a heavier guitar by far than the SG. Apparently, Angus broke his hip-bone once when his Les Paul smashed into it amidst his usual aggressive thrashing and bashing around, which injury inspired him to switch to the much lighter and hopefully less damaging SG more or less in self-defense. Don’t know if the story is true or not and neither did Goose, but either way it’s still a good ‘un. As with God, if it didn’t exist we’d have had to make it up.

Yep, AC/DC is still the greatest ever, and always will be as far as I’m concerned; there’s really no other band quite like them out there, and that’s the truth. Knowing I’ll never see ’em play again gives me an ache deep down in my heart, it truly does. Just one more reason getting old sucks.

Dogpiling on

Okay, I think I’m definitely starting to feel a wee bit sorry that poor Conservative Inc sad sack, David French.

Wait, no I’m not.

I quibble only on a semantic point. French should not be fired, as that term is commonly understood. He should never have been hired in the first place.

To understand why is to ask, “what the hell is his job anyway?”

Conservative, Inc. tends to be overwrought in its self-importance. The furrowed brows, the just-so bifocals, the stuttering interruptions on CNN panels where they are paid to play conservative minstrels… a vote for Trump was in part a vote to shut them up.

Just like liberals, they think themselves better because of their superior intentions; except, unlike their counterparts, they dare to cloak their posturing in treacly bible camp religiosity.

The most annoying of them – and French definitely is in that category – act like the only reason they don’t walk on water is their concern for the feelings of the water.

Mostly, NeverTrump pundits have been useful idiots to the belching Washington establishment.

They were crucial to fundraising under the Conservative, Inc. formula: scare old ladies, demand money by making messianic claims, and by all means lose. That way they could ask for money again the next week.

To his credit, no element of Trump’s brand was constructed upon a moral pose, which only makes people uncomfortable anyway. Ask Mitt. Trump the sinner was actually more righteous than the posers because he confessed to sometimes being a cad, which sounds like a contradiction but is not.

In the end, David French got high on his own supply. He snorted the neat rows of “a guy like you should be president” white powder Bill Kristol cut on the mirror in front of him.

Nope, I am definitely NOT feeling sorry for French, nor any of the rest of that smarmy, rotten-to-the-core crew. To hell with them all.

How you steal an election get a civil war

It didn’t need to be true. It just needed to work.

After the initial results of the election in November surprised the Clinton campaign, the Russia collusion hoax became the means by which Democrats would attempt to nullify votes by flipping the Electoral College electors. The effort climaxed in the days between December 9 and December 17, 2016. America came within a hair’s breadth of the 2016 presidential election being overturned through a collaboration of the Clinton campaign, the media, and like-minded public officials.

The CIA made the first move. On December 9, the CIA leaked an accusation that Russia “interfered in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency.” On December 12, 2016, just one week before the electors were to cast the final votes for president, a group of mostly Clinton-supporting electors sent a letter in which they demanded a “briefing” from the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The letter appears to have been informed by the notorious Steele dossier commissioned by the Clinton campaign and other partisan misinformation. The letter cited an account of Roger Stone’s communication with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange (which was false) and asserted that Stone knew about the hacked emails before they were released (which was also false).

The letter also cited unspecified contact between unspecified Trump aides and those associated with the alleged Russian election interference. This likely is a reference to the Steele allegation that Cohen traveled to Prague to pay-off Russian hackers (which was also false). Or it may have been a reference to the Steele dossier’s claim that former campaign manager Paul Manafort coordinated communication between the Russian government and the Trump campaign (also false). The letter further claimed that Carter Page met with the Putin aide in charge of the Russian intelligence on the U.S. election. That appears to refer to a meeting between Carter Page and Igor Divyekin (which didn’t happen).

Clearly somebody dripped Steele’s poison into the ears of compliant electors to build peer pressure against the Trump electors.

But somebody blinked. On December 16, 2016, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a press release acknowledging the request to brief the electors but declining the invitation to conduct it. The communique made an oblique reference to the classified nature of the underlying information. But this classification could have been lifted by presidential decree in a matter of minutes.

The real reason the electors were not so briefed might have been that insiders had already spotted critical flaws in Steele’s allegations. For example, an astute State Department official, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec, tipped-off the FBI that Steele incorrectly claimed the payments for the Russian interference were made through the Russian Consulate in Miami (a consulate that does not exist). Also, the FBI travelled to Prague in October of 2016 to run-down a promising arrest of a Russian hacker. It’s likely that they also used the trip to look into reports by Steele that Michael Cohen traveled to Prague months earlier to pay Russian hackers.

We now know that the Prague hacker had nothing to do with the 2016 election and that Cohen did not travel to Prague in 2016. Both Kavalec and senior Justice Department attorney Bruce Ohrwarned the FBI that Steele had transparently political motives. Ohr also knew from his own Russian source that the claim that Manafort coordinated with the Russians was “preposterous.” The briefing the electors would have received was just a regurgitation of the lies commissioned by the Clinton campaign.

Viewed in the context of the 2016 election, the present-day effort to end the Electoral College is not about amending the Constitution but about softening-up the playing field for the next post-election campaign to flip electors. By running up vote totals in states like California, Democrats can claim a moral victory in the popular vote to justify an attack on the Electoral College’s constitutional result. In this way, padded vote totals in blue states can be combined with “troubling intelligence” reports by insiders in the deep state to make the next play to overturn an “unacceptable” election result.

They came one hell of a lot closer to pulling it off than most people realize. Don’t you think for one second that their failure this time around means these slimewads won’t dare to try again, either. The only real hope of preventing the next attempt—and the next, and the next, and the next—is to see to it that the perps go to prison and don’t come out any way other than feet-first, recumbent, and at room-temperature.

A school of fish

Don’t know why anybody would bother to even try understanding the Left. They’re uninterested in real dialogue or debate; enraged by dissenting opinion; immunized against fact; ignorant of history; incapable of logic or reason; indifferent to truth; detached from observable reality; and unalterably convinced of their own superior intelligence and morality. Their beliefs aren’t the product of reflection and intellectual rigor, but are instead dogmatic in nature—articles of faith, particularly inflexible ones, which are not usually amenable to polite persuasion. As the saying goes, you can’t reason somebody out of a position they never reasoned themselves into in the first place.

A part of every religion is ritual. Even the crudest, most simple of religions have some rituals that reinforce the belief system. Those ceremonies and rituals are physical manifestations of the shared belief. Step inside a synagogue and it is nothing but ritual and ceremony. The same is true of the Catholic Church. Old religions have had a long time to develop and fine tune their rituals and ceremonies. Without those rituals, the religion ceases to exist, just as the death of the body kills the consciousness.

That is the power of Progressivism. It is a self-contained, self-validating shared reality for the adherents. It’s why so few people break from it. More important, its immune system has evolved highly complex defenses against the way in which the Right prefers to debate. Those appeals to facts and reason are quickly turned into fuel to energize the believers into huddling closer in common defense. It’s how the Left maintains its power. It has turned the enemy’s best weapons into fuel.

It is why engaging with the Left is a tactical error. As much as dissidents like to accuse the Buckley conservatives of being controlled opposition, they never really got the value of the Buckley types to the Left. They were not their designated punching bags. They were the ritualized manifestation of the devil, the universal threat against which the Left is organized. It is a reminder of why they believe, why they must stick together and why they must fight by any means necessary.

An authentic alternative to the Left will therefore not confront the Left, but hide from it, refusing to engage in the traditional way. More important, it can never manifest in the traditional ways. Those white boys in fashy haircuts at Charlottesville were the best controlled opposition the Left has had since David Duke. They were what the Progressive prophesies foretold, thus confirming the shared beliefs of the coalition of the ascendant. It’s why Charlottesville looms so large for the Left.

The authentic alternative to the prevailing orthodoxy will have to evolve in the shadows and evolve its own immunity from the weapons of the Left. Instead of being attracted to confronting the Left, it will have to be repelled by it. The decisive weapon will be never manifesting in a way that allows the Left to anathematize it. Instead of playing the role carved out for them by the Left, the successful dissidents will seem formless and inexplicable. The people in charge will never see them coming.

Better just to shoot the dumb fucks and be done with it. They won’t see that coming, either.

Needles: pegged

Say it like you mean it, baby.

Last week, Charlottesville, Virginia Mayor Nikuyah Walker proposed ending recognition of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday as an official city holiday. Instead, she wants the city to celebrate the emancipation of local slaves a month earlier, as “Liberation and Freedom Day.” The proposal will be brought before the city council at either its June 17 or July 1 meeting, reports The Daily Progress, a local newspaper.

Charlottesville is the home to the University of Virginia, one of the United States’s premiere research and educational institutions, which Jefferson personally designed, founded, and led after serving as the U.S. president. It is Jefferson who wrote the words that became a promissory note of freedom for all people and that this nation cashed in its own blood. It is he who helped design a nation that has secured the most freedom for the most people in all of human history. All this means nothing, say today’s rageaholic iconoclasts, because he held slaves.

Followed to its logical conclusions, this line of thinking bans the idea of greatness itself. It subsumes all good actions to any possibly connected evil actions. It insists that the most defining feature of any person is his sins. And it pretends that simply by virtue of understanding that slavery is wrong, we who live today in the West are perfectly holy, and may freely and smugly condemn every single person who has ever gone before us, and brush away every insight and achievement of human history.

Not one of these overindoctrinated underachievers who want to rid our society of all heroes is fit to shine Thomas Jefferson’s boots. They couldn’t create a nation out of scratch if they tried. They couldn’t in a million years dedicate their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to establishing a country that would be among the first in world history end slavery through a near-suicidal deluge of its own blood, in a dedication to the words and the institutions Jefferson helped create: dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, and seeing that their government treats them so, at the cost of a higher percentage of deaths than it cost this nation to liberate the entire globe from Adolf Hitler.

So, while Jefferson is too dead to defend himself and the benefactors of his great ingenuities too maleducated by the government of his co-creation to give him the respect he deserves, these envious, cowardly, accomplish-nothings spit on his legacy. The very freedom these people use to dig up and roast his dead corpse they would not have without him. They use the priceless treasure he bought with his life for them like a piece of toilet paper on which to wipe their fetid excrescence.

Seconded, by every last cell in my body. With this boiling-hot screed, Joy Pullman has surely penned one for the ages. Sing it with me one mo’ time ag’in:

Shitlib cri de coeur: “Donald Trump Will Pick the Democratic Nominee”

A real hanky-wringer from the NYT. And you guys know I don’t link those lightly—or at all—unless there’s real amusement value to be had.

Every incumbent president looms large over the contest to determine his opponent, but the shadow cast by Trump is bloated beyond measure. He’s not just influencing the Democratic race. He’s perverting it. It looks and sounds little like 2016, 2012, 2008 or any other year that I can easily recall, and the main reason isn’t rising progressivism, increasing diversity or metastasizing social media. It’s Trump.

He’s altering the standards by which candidates are judged. He’s warping the lens through which they’re viewed. Everything is a response to him, a reading of him, a repudiation of him. He’s the reference point, as omnipresent in Democrats’ motivations and calculations as he is on cable news. The Democrat who wins the party’s presidential nomination will be the Democrat who fits most felicitously into a Trump-stamped and Trump-ravaged landscape, and if that Democrat goes all the way, it will be a destiny decreed largely by Trump.

Trump, for example, gets credit for the Democratic primary’s defining aspect, which is the sheer number of candidates — 23. They assessed his underwhelming approval rating,

So “underwhelming” it’s higher than both Obama’s and Clinton’s.

factored in his combustibility and decided that if ever a sitting president looked vulnerable and if any year appeared ripe for a Democratic takeover, that president is Trump and that year is 2020. The many long shots among them weren’t dissuaded by their odds, because Trump took an unconventional route to a victory that stunned him as much as it did anybody else. It suggested that the old rules were out the window and you never really know.

That’s another thing all you staid, old-guard hacks missed: the old rules ARE out the window, yet both you and the Conservative Inc NeverTrumpTards continue to purvey your turgid analyses based on those now-defunct old rules.

But the congested field is suffocating qualified aspirants who would otherwise find oxygen. It’s putting an extra premium on viral moments and supersize conceits. It’s privileging celebrity. All of that will factor into who prevails, and all of that is because of Trump.

“Qualified aspirants”? Name two from out of that pack of rabid, baying hyenas. Just two. Go on, I’ll wait.

“Electability” dominates Democratic voters’ thoughts, because many of them are more horrified by four more years of Trump than they were by four more years of his Republican predecessors.

Remarkably, Bruni just got something right, if only accidentally and not for the reason he thinks. Those Republican predecessors being part of the phony Tame Opposition, willing to roll over and pant for their masters, Democrat-Socialist voters (the ones actually alive, that is) would naturally be more comfortable with the prospect of spending a term pretending to be governed by them. They’d still scream bloody murder about “fascism” and “Hitler” and all the rest, sure. But they wouldn’t have been driven right to Bedlam’s very doorstep by, say, ¡YEB! as they have been by Trump.

There’s more, and it’s the usual noxious hellbrew of lies, distortion, sleazy insinuation, and hypocrisy the dwindling handful who still bother with the NYT at all have come to know and love, so I won’t bother with deconstructing any more of it. But taken as the wailing denunciation of reality from a broken shitlib that it is, it’s still a pleasant read nonetheless.

COLLUSION!!!

It’s baaaack.

In the latest media-manufactured crisis du jour, the president now stands falsely accused of inviting foreign interference into our elections.

During an Oval Office interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Thursday, President Trump said there “isn’t anything wrong” with listening to information offered up by a foreigner about a candidate’s political opponent.

“It’s not an interference, they have information. I think I’d take it,” he told Stephanapolous when asked whether it’s appropriate to accept opposition research from someone in another country. “If I thought there was something wrong, maybe I’d take it to the FBI, if I thought there was something wrong.”

The rather innocuous comments unleashed the predictable and tiresome widespread outrage.

Kelly mentions odious lizard-woman Ellen Weintraub, who uncorked a blast of self-righteousness at Trump:

“Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election,” her statement begins. “This is not a novel concept. Electoral intervention from foreign governments has been considered unacceptable since the beginnings of our nation. Our Founding Fathers sounds the alarm about ‘foreign Interference, Intrigue, and Influence.’”

Back to Kelly for a small problem Weintraub would probably rather you not know about.

Weintraub’s agency continues to sit on a complaint filed 20 months ago by the D.C.-based Campaign Legal Center detailing how both committees failed to report payments to Fusion GPS, only disclosing nearly $13 million in payments to Perkins Coie during the 2016 election cycle. The funds were vaguely described as “legal services” on reporting documents.

But the FEC still hasn’t taken action on the complaint—and there might be a reason why. Before joining the FEC, Weintraub herself was an attorney at Perkins Coie, serving as “Of Counsel to the Political Law Group” according to her FEC bio.

Oooops. No conflict of interest there, no sirree. No further mention, either, of the many other Democrat-Socialists, going all the way back to Ted “Waitress Sandwich” Kennedy, who have either actively solicited or cheerfully accepted foreign offers of election-jiggering, and…HEY, LOOK, OVER THERE! A SQUIRREL!!

For his part Limbaugh asserts that, far from this being an unforced error or gaffe on Trump’s part as some have claimed, he has actually master-trolled his numbskull enemies once again:

And here we go again, folks. Here we go again. Donald Trump sets ’em up, they haven’t figured it out yet. I’m kind of reluctant to explain it here ’cause I don’t want ’em to figure it out, but I gotta explain it so that you get it. Everybody calm down here.

But it’s fascinating to watch this ’cause it – (interruption) Why do I call it a setup? Well, the reason I call it a setup is because the Democrats have actually done it! Trump is forcing these people to go on the record steadfast opposition to this while Barr and Durham are conducting an operation to find out what kind of illegal activity there was between the investigators and Russia and other foreign actors in order to sabotage the Trump campaign and then the Trump presidency.

So Trump is forcing all these people to go public here with their outrage over just thinking about doing it, saying it’s illegal, it’s unpresidential, it’s un-American, and the day is gonna come where everybody’s gonna know that the Democrats did it, that Hillary Clinton did it. And it’s gonna be very difficult for these clowns having conniption fits today to walk it all back, once Barr and Durham make their findings clear.

That’s why I think part of this is a set — Trump is not stupid. Don’t care what anybody thinks, he’s not stupid. And Stephanopoulos did not sandbag him. Stephanopoulos did not set him up, did not catch him in a moment of when his guard was down, or he was not prepared.

Well and good, I guess, but Rush is assuming that these people possess sense of shame enough to preclude them from hypocritically denouncing Trump for something they’re guilty of themselves. Ain’t no evidence to support such an assumption, not a bit of it. Quite the opposite, in fact.

There’s another angle to all this, though, that I haven’t seen mentioned yet: Trump’s flat statement that “…you go and talk honestly to congressmen, they all do it, they always have. And that’s the way it is.” People seem to be overlooking it, but I think it’s more important than some might think. What Trump did there is what he’s been doing all along: he made a simple statement reaffirming a home truth, with an offhand bluntness completely horrifying to the Business As Usual crowd, that all Normal Americans already know. It’s exactly the sort of thing that attracted people who have been longing for many years to hear such truths spoken right out loud to Trump; as such, it won’t damage their bond with him at all, but will only solidify it.

A righteous troll? Who knows. A damaging error, one that will leach support from Trump in 2020? Not on your life. Beat that dead horse as hard as they like, it will gain the Democrat-Socialists and their Enemedia rumpswabs nothing. And in the end, THAT’S the thing they still just don’t get.

Wait, what?!?

Is there NO cherished icon from my youth that they won’t leave alone? Not even ONE?

Oh, and there’s a new Banana Splits movie. I would ask “Is this something?” but I’m pretty sure it’s not something.

I’m just linking it because, whatever.

He has the trailer, and it’s dismaying. Apparently, this cinematic abortion is rated R—for, and I quote, “horror violence and gore.”

That’s right, folks: the Banana Splits—those fuzzy, cuddly, fun-loving characters I watched with eager delight each and every Saturday morning as a wee tot—have now been “reimagined” into bloodthirsty, macabre mass-murderers. I only WISH I was kidding.

Okay, it’s an original idea, I’ll grudgingly give the perpetrators of this offense against all that’s good and decent that much. But Jesus H CHRIST, people. I mean, come the fucking fuck ON.

Sigh. Might as well take this opportunity to present Limey pop-punksters The Dickies’ rollicking remake of what I always considered to be the greatest TeeWee theme song of all time. At least this one’s a GOOD remake: light-hearted and fun, committing no just-because-I-can sadistic violence against the original. Thank God for small favors, I guess.

Bull in a China shop

Elite Street versus Main Street.

America’s bull is loose in the China shop. President Trump has set in place a confrontation with China over that nation’s trade infractions. The shop’s elite patrons are in paroxysms, while Main Street presses their nose to the glass to watch the show. That two groups could see such different things in the same occurrence is the crux of American politics today.

For decades, Main Street America has felt the effect of the elite’s prevailing trade approach. Elites therefore cannot directly oppose Trump in attacking China; they are left only with the cursory response that they would pursue it in a better way — despite never having bothered to do so.

China’s mercantilist approach is nothing new. In Asia, Japan, and then Korea, earlier used this developmental approach. In America, a different segment of Main Street suffered each time.

The economic throwback of mercantilism seems quaint to America’s elites — its beneficiaries — but cruel to its victims — Main Streets. Undoubtedly, the elite’s perception would have been very different had China been flooding America’s markets with lawyers instead of leggings.

America is democratic to a fault. Today’s elite brands it demagogic. However, it predates America’s revolutionary origin. After, Tocqueville eloquently documented it. We have a long-held love of satirizing the elite — from the Three Stooges running roughshod through a mansion, to the Marx Brothers demolishing an opera.

For Main Street, Trump has imbued America’s innate love of such high jinks with a sense of high justice: “It is about time.” There is no little element of payback here. This is why Trump has bulled into so many china shops — NAFTA, trade with the EU and Japan, immigration — not just China. And, why so many have enjoyed watching him go.

There is a fundamental misunderstanding in American politics. The elite believe Main Street cannot see there is a bull in the china shop, or do not understand the damage he will cause. For Main Street’s part, they see and understand perfectly — and it is precisely where they want him. The real issue separating elites from Main Streets is not about where the bull is, but whose ox is being gored.

This one’s an enjoyable read, full of amusing lines that make some seriously insightful points in an almost comic way.
