Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Bummer

Remember the story about the homeless guy buying gas for a woman stranded in Philly, after which they rasied a bunch of dough for him with a GoFundMe campaign? I wrote about it myself at the time; if I remember right, the homeless guy was a military vet; after the girl he helped and her husband tracked him down, he got himself cleaned up, found a job and place to live, etc. He had finally gotten himself back on track, and the whole thing was just heartwarming, a real feel-good story if ever there was one.

Well. About all that.

Authorities say a New Jersey couple and a homeless man made up a “feel good” story about the man helping them so they could raise money through an online fundraiser.

Burlington County prosecutors outlined the allegations against Mark D’Amico, Katelyn McClure and Johnny Bobbitt on Thursday. All three are charged with theft by deception and conspiracy to commit theft by deception.

The couple has claimed they set up a GoFundMe page for Bobbitt after he helped McClure get gas when she became stranded in Philadelphia last year. But prosecutors say they found evidence all three knew each other for at least a month before and set up the scheme.

D’Amico and McClure surrendered Wednesday night. Their attorney said they have no comment. Bobbitt is jailed in Philadelphia. A previous lawyer of his didn’t return a call seeking comment.

I guess the lesson here is that cynical old farts like me should never, ever let our dwindling faith in humanity be even partially restored by stories like this. Not until the other shop drops, at least. Confirmation, as if any were needed, that the Warm Fuzzies will lead ya astray every danged time.

Bah.

Preach it, brother

Oh, how I love this.

A Chicago pastor who asked a man dressed in drag to leave a worship service because he was dressed like a woman stands by his actions after coming under fire.

A Facebook video of the Sunday night encounter shows Antonio Rocquemore of Power House International Ministries asking the unidentified man to step out into the aisle.

“Can you leave my church and go put on man clothes? And don’t come here like that no more,” Rocquemore can be seen telling the man in the video, posted by Christian James Lhuillier.

“i hold a standard in here. Whatever you do on the outside is your business, but I will not let drag queens come in here. If you’re gonna come in here you’re gonna dress like a man.”

People in the crowd cheered and said “Amen” and “thank you Jesus” as Rocquemore addressed the young man.

Then, as predictable as the fucking sunrise, here comes the liberal bullshit.

But Lhuillier posted the video on Monday because he was angered by what he saw. It has been viewed more than 420,000 times.

“Some of y’all are going to have to excuse my language but I am tired of this s**t,” Lhuillier wrote in his post.

“In a place that is supposed to be a place of change a place of deliverance whatever you want to call it why would you destroy someone in front of a room full of people. This is the kind of bulls**t that causes people to go home and commit suicide.

“S**t like this is the reason that the church has no power in 2018 because they are so worried about the wrong things.”

Hardly. If the Christian church truly has no power in 2018, it stems not from “worrying about the wrong things” but from putting up with disrespect, denigration, insult, and attack from the Left with no stronger reaction in its own defense than running out of cheeks to turn.

The good Reverend Rocquemore is right on the beam: this cross-dressing fucktard needs to leave his sexual kinks at home on Sunday instead of bringing them to church—just as I need to, just as you do, just as we all do—be those kinks what they may. The church is no place for that crap, and anyone serious about his/her faith knows it, respects it, and wouldn’t have it any other way.

I strongly suspect that this episode, like the contrived bake-me-a-gay-wedding-cake-or-else imbroglio, is the precursor to a lawsuit intended to degrade and humiliate everyone not on board with Lefty’s destructive, degenerate agenda, forcing us once again not just to tolerate the bizarre and/or dysfunctional, but to actively celebrate it. Count on it; they’re working a plan here, and they will never stop until either we knuckle under or they are dead, dead, dead.

Rest assured: if by chance this asshole is more or less apolitical (unlikely) and not a conniving Lefty himself, then the people who put him up to this little stunt most assuredly are. Not content to politicize everydamndthing under the sun, they also have to sexualize it all, too. Not because they’re driven by rampant libido, mind, but because it’s just another way of working their tiresome old political wheeze—another arrow in the Progtard quiver, and another aspect of life they just can’t keep their grubby, strangling mitts off of.

Good for the Rev for telling the skeevy weenie-wagger off, and for the supportive flock he shepherds too; nice to know that at least some traditional values survive in Shitcago even yet. I can’t see anyone hearing a whole lot of “God DAMN America” bushwa on Sundays from Rev Rocquemore either, although that’s just a gut assumption and I could be all wet on it.

Bottom line: you wanna attend Sunday worship? You dress appropriately and show the proper decorum in the house of the Lord, then. You wanna put on a freakshow and get your rocks off by drawing attention to yourself, rubbing your warped urges in others’ faces—well, there are plenty of places out there that cater to people like you, places which Normals are perfectly happy to pass by and let be. Stay out of our churches—to adapt a line from the great Larry Brown: take your goober-grabbing on down the road someplace else—lest you walk into the wrong church one fine Sunday and wind up getting way more attention than you figured on, or wanted.

Via Ace, who forgoes the “degenerate” angle to amusingly work the “RAYCISS!™” one instead.

Update! After looking over this story again and thinking on it some more, I failed to mention two more things that frost the hell out of me. One: “…after coming under fire”? Now, we know this phrase is just another of those Enemedia stratagems, like “sources say” or “concerns have been raised” that allow the “journalist” to sneak in his own opinion with a little weight added by the subterfuge. But if the Reverend truly DID “come under fire” by people in his community other than the cross-dressing fruit, the media, and Angry Guy who posted the video—well, that would be another in a long list of recent indicators of just how far gone this nation is.

Two, viz Angry Guy himself: he says a church is “supposed to be a place of change a place of deliverance whatever you want to call it.” Oh, rilly? IS it now. That’s some way sophisticated understanding of liturgical shit there, bub. Especially that “whatever you want to call it.” Why, anyone can see you’ve given the doctrine of this church—of Protestant Christianity itself, in fact—one hell of a lot of Deep Thought, in your own clumsy, semi-literate way.

And here I’d always thought church was a place of worship, a place of repentance, self-denial, and humility—a place of rejection of the mundane and corporeal and embrace of the spiritual, ineffable, and sublime. Above all else, a place of joyful expression of the congregation’s love and devotion to God, of their gratitude for His mercy and forgiveness, of glorifying and praising Him. “A place of CHANGE”? Well, I suppose it actually can be thought of that way as well, superficial and generic as the notion is. But that is by NO means the central focus or purpose of the church.

I have to wonder if this putz had ever even attended services, there or anywhere else, before launching this bullshit campaign to force the Reverend Rocquemore into line with current shitlib canon. If by some chance Angry Guy IS a regular, then I wonder, too, if he usually records the service on video. Myself, I’d bet that he just HAPPENED to show up this one time—on the particular day that the freak put on his provocative little act—and just HAPPENED to record the freak’s ouster and posted it on Fakebook, too. Five will get you ten Angry Guy is MUCH better acquainted with the cross-dresser than he is with the Reverend, or any of his congregants.

Because he’s “tired of this shit,” see. If so, I can wholeheartedly assure him that he is NOT the only one.

I wonder, too, why they didn’t try to spring their little Drag Night shit-stirring extravaganza on a mosque instead of a Christian church. Kinda gives the whole game away right out of the gate, don’t it?

Emboldened, and all-in

So you probably know by know about the latest Lefty restaurant attack, this one merely verbal, launched by some slime-encrusted, mentally unbalanced pustule against Tucker Carlson’s daughter. Naturally, sewer-crawling lawyer Michael Avenatti has involved himself, “investigating” the risible charge that Carlson “assaulted” said pustule in retaliation for cruelly browbeating his daughter. That’s the backstory; I’ll let Steyn take it from there:

While we’re on the subject of Tucker: The thing about Michael Avenatti, the Creepy Porn Lawyer, is that he’s better at being creepy than at being a lawyer. In fact ,he’s an even crappier lawyer than Eric M George, which is kind of impressive and a point to bear in mind if you’re thinking of retaining his services: So, while Creepy is planning his presidential run, his most famous client Stormy Daniels is broke and working cheap strip joints following the dismissal of her meritless defamation suit against Trump, after which Judge Otero additionally ordered Stormy to pay the President’s legal fees. That’s extremely rare in America: a penniless nobody has to have a real stinker of a case to get stuck with paying for a billionaire’s lawyers. But that’s how good a job Avenatti did. Creepy’s second most famous client, Julie Swetnick, swore that Brett Kavanaugh organized drug-and-gang-rape parties in the Eighties, and she’s now been referred to the Department of Justice for criminal investigation. So Creepy Porn Lawyer is moving on. Hence this Saturday night Tweet:

We are investigating an alleged assault on a gay latino immigrant committed by T. Carlson.

On TV last week, after the mob besieged Tucker’s home an hour before the show when he was already at the studio, Brian Kilmeade asked him about how he felt about not being there to protect his wife, and then qualified the question by conceding that it was a little, in Brian’s word, “retro”. And Tucker said something to the effect that he wouldn’t want to live in a society where men didn’t instinctively want to protect their wives. Likewise, I wouldn’t want to live in a society where men and boys didn’t instinctively want to defend their daughters and sisters in the face of provocations like the above. “Retro” as it might be, I would certainly punch out any guy who said anything remotely close to that to my own daughter. Because the alternative – accepting it and continuing through to the desserts and digestifs as if nothing has happened – is unconscionable, not just for the individuals concerned but for the broader culture.

This is where all the “safe space” “micro-aggression” “hate speech” rubbish leads. Tucker and this guy don’t know each other; they have no personal relationship; they differ only on matters of public policy – on immigration or sexual identity politics or whatever the hell his bugbear is. But, if your reaction to a fellow who advocates a different immigration policy is to go after his teenage daughter, you’re a goon who’s making any kind of public discourse impossible – indeed, making democratic politics and representative government impossible. The left is going to have to re-learn how to debate – the issues, that is, not whether the chap raising the issue has a “whore” for a daughter. Because the alternative, the way these morons are going, is civil war.

It’s a vain hope, Mark; these filthwads aren’t in the least interested in “debate,” and will definitely not be brought around to re-learning how. We should only hope there’s still enough stalwarts on our side to bring them their civil war; to win it resoundingly; and to thoroughly grind their faces in defeat for years afterward, until all the will to violent Marxist revolution is crushed out of them entirely.

As for Carlson, if ever there was an instance of punching some bully-boy ass-welt in the face being eminently justifiable, it would have to be this one. Tucker should have beaten this coward into bloody goo and let the legal chips fall where they may. If America is so ethically adrift that it could provide a jury willing to convict a man for reacting vigorously—and appropriately—to a vile, completely unprovoked assault on his daughter, then the country is too far gone to be worth saving.

As my dad used to say, the guy was aching for a breaking; he damned sure should have gotten one, not only as a matter of simple justice but also pour encourager les autres. Every time we let another of these Lefty shitweasels slide on outrages like this, we guarantee that there will be more of it…and worse.

The monkey in the wrench

Gum up their works.

These people, these communists, these greenies who are communist red on the inside, these foreign citizens, these would-be tyrants and dictators have decided that only their views are important, only they know how to do the right thing and you are either too lazy, stupid or inbred to conceive of their magnificence and brilliance. They know who to choose for a governor, or a mayor, or a representative, or a senator and since you are too stupid to agree with them, they will just have to vote ten times more often to ensure that the right thing is done.

That is exactly how they see you, but those are just the useful idiots, the trolling dupes, the ragtag Antifa leadership, the self-righteous college graduates who actually swallowed the vomit spewed by their communist professors and assistants. They are the elementary, middle school and high school teachers and principals who look down on the poor, confused parents, who are so politically backward, they have to send messages to them on how to behave by their own children, who themselves are victims of this diabolical disease called communism, collectivism, socialism and authoritarianism.

These are the overpaid athletes who laugh at you for wanting them to at least show a modicum of respect for the nation that has taken them out of the gutters and placed them at the highest level of societal status, so they kneel when you want them to stand as an insult to everything patriotic and decent about America. They are the celebrities who have not even a smidgen of understanding of what it takes to get up everyday and go to a job you hate in order to send your child to college. They are the deep state clerks and mid-level Senior Executive Service (SES) employees who have the game so rigged none of you serfs will ever get a hint of the lifestyles you would live if they did not spend every dime you pay in taxes monitoring, recording and using illegal means of surveillance to destroy any hope you have of living a life like theirs. They will regulate you, tax you, use your money to defeat you, to defeat your candidates, offer lies and  defamations to keep you right where you are putting tax dollars in their pockets to hate, despise and some even pity you for the uninformed dolts they believe you are.

They are all communists, they are all traitors, usurpers, criminals, thieves, bullies, tyrants and the real problem is, they laugh about it. They enjoy their evil. They enjoy your pain and fear. It gives them power.

Ask yourself why banks got bailed out, insurance companies got bailed out, investment firms got bailed out, automakers got bailed out, the richest 1% kept all of their money, but not one home loan was forgiven despite the fact that companies that held the mortgages went bankrupt and in some cases no one even understood who actually held the mortgage to these people’s homes and yet they were taken from them when they had paid more than half the balance. These people might have paid $250,000 on a $260,000 loan and because they got laid off when almost every business was struggling to stay alive due to the malfeasance of bankers, stock brokers and mortgage companies, they lost their homes, homes they had spent a lifetime trying to pay off so they could retire on a marginal income. That’s what they think of you, that they can take your life savings and save the banks and they will do it again.

But, the one thing left out in all of this is one simple, undeniable fact that gives you, the individual, power over all of them, total, utter and complete power to overcome your status as a slave to their nefarious plans.

TL spells out exactly what that one thing is, and he has a plan.

The more things change…

The return of Chad! Sounds like a sort of 60s-era Beach Blanket Bingo meets the Wolfman horror movie, doesn’t it? Not nearly as entertaining but twice as terrifying, unfortunately.

As I have said lo, these many years, when Republicans win elections, they have to win beyond the Margin of Lawyer. Otherwise, regardless of who won on Election Day, the Democrat always wins on Post-Election Day, because mysteriously all the missing ballot boxes found in dumpsters and recycling bins and the trunks of Democrat cars contain virtually no Republican votes. Alas, in the Sunshine State of Florida, the GOP’s gubernatorial and senatorial candidates failed to win beyond the Margin of Lawyer, and as a result we’re all discovering, two decades on, that the same institutional corruption that put US electoral integrity on a par with the Congo is still there, entirely unspoiled by progress. Everything else in the world has been transformed beyond recognition – newspapers, telephones, Bruce Jenner – but the Florida chadlands have been lovingly preserved as a wacky Recount theme park.

Steyn then goes on to reminisce, via excerpts from his columns on Al Gore’s precedent-establishing attempt to lawyer his way into the Presidency in 2000, thankfully thwarted—which in turn created a twisted sense of grievance the Left still nurtures to this very day, amounting to a loss never to be forgiven or forgotten by the Left. In fact, looking back, that defeat was probably the moment when their already-tenuous grip on sanity finally broke for good.

It was eighteen years ago that Florida’s election systems were revealed to the world as both farcical and corrupt. But here we again, with nothing changed. Because apparently Floridians – or, at any rate, their political class, like it that way.

Ain’t just Flore-duh, Mark. They’re going to steal Arizona too, and get away with it. And just like that, the Republican “victory” in holding onto the Senate will rest entirely on the backs of stalwart “severe conservatives” Murkowski, Collins, and…Mitt Romney.

Dumbshow for mouth-breathers

Did I say the country was finished a minute ago? Amend that; it’s a fucking sick joke.

Turns out former FBI Director James Comey talked about sensitive government business on his personal email routinely, according to new documents turned up by the Cause of Action Institute (COAI) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Here’s the key: “The FBI reviewed 526 pages, released only 156 pages, and withheld 370 pages in full. Notably, the FBI withheld seven emails under the FOIA’s law enforcement exemption, which applies only where the government can show that (1) a law enforcement proceeding is pending or prospective, and (2) release of information about that proceeding could reasonably be expected to cause some articulable harm,” COAI said.

“Some articulable harm”? REALLY? What kind of harm? To whom? The covers-all-bases bolded bafflegab renders the FOIA entirely meaningless, an obscenity.

I find myself wondering at what point it was that we overtook Once-Great Britain in the race to the nadir of decay, disgrace, futility, and abomination, leaving the Limeys in our malodorous dust.

Whatcha gonna do?

*Crickets*

Broward County Riot Police removed Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) from filming county officials secretly moving boxes in and out of Broward County election offices.

Matt posted the video at 9:30 on Friday night.

They must not know Matt is a Congressman!

Oh, they know. They don’t give a shit. There’s no reason they should.

Matt Gaetz wrote: BREAKING: I took this video as the riot police removed me from where trucks were secretly loading stuff in/out of Broward Supervisors office. All this while they are violating constitutional rights & a court order! #BrowardCounty

Where are the US Marshals?

Same place the rest of us are: home on the sofa, sitting on their hands, doing nothing. Well, I guess some of us are talking big from our computer keyboards about “Second Amendment solutions”, about how the Marxists in charge are “afraid” of all those big bad guns securely locked up in gun safes all over the country, about how they’re buying more ammo that will never come out of the box, and how the shit is about to hit the fan for real, sometime real soon now. Don’t be fooled; it isn’t. This Tweet is definitive:


Yeah, “somebody” sure does. And when they don’t?

Crickets.

This country is finished.

“No big deal. They’re just stealing an election right in front of our faces”

And brazenly laughing up their sleeves at us while they do it, too. But why not? They know they won’t be called to account.

It appears that recounts will be ordered in three Florida races: governor, Senate, and agriculture commissioner. All are currently within the margin that triggers a recount. But that’s all up in the air right now because the notoriously incompetent Broward County Board of Elections keeps “finding” new votes to count. That would be fine if elections supervisor Brenda Snipes were following the laws requiring transparency in the process, but she’s not. The ballot canvassing process, which is by law subject to public scrutiny, is clothed in secrecy as Snipes refuses to obey laws requiring her to permit observers through every step of the process. Not only that, but Snipes is making no attempt to even give the appearance that the ballot tabulating process is above board. That’s why Governor Rick Scott, who is running to unseat Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, filed a pair of lawsuits alleging that Broward County is violating election laws. (Scott also filed a lawsuit against the Palm Beach County elections board alleging that replacement ballots were improperly created.)

“Late Tuesday night, our win was projected to be around 57,000 votes,” Scott explained to reporters. “By Wednesday morning, that lead dropped to 38,000. By Wednesday evening, it was around 30,000. This morning, it was around 21,000. Now, it is 15,000.”

According to Scott, “On election night, Broward County said there were 634,000 votes cast. At 1 a.m. today, there were 695,700 ballots cast on Election Day. At 2:30 p.m. today, the number was up to 707,223 ballots cast on Election Day. And we just learned that the number has increased to 712,840 ballots cast on Election Day. In Palm Beach County, there are 15,000 new votes found since election night.”

How is it that election officials keep “finding” new votes that, oh, by the way, help the Democratic candidates? That’s a question election officials are refusing to answer.

As I said earlier, it’s a question nobody even needs to bother asking. The answer is blindingly obvious.

This is not the first time that Snipes’ competence and judgment have been called into question. In 2016 she was caught destroying ballots during Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s primary race. A federal judge in May ruled that Snipes broke both state and federal elections laws.

And then did nothing.

At the time, Gov. Scott vowed that during the midterms, “the Department of State will send a Florida elections expert from the Division of Elections to Supervisor Snipes’ office to ensure that all laws are followed so the citizens of Broward County can have the efficient, properly run election they deserve.”

And then did nothing. Also: “competence and judgment”? This is nothing to do with either one; it’s pure malevolence and corruption. This bitch shouldn’t be fired—she should be in prison.

That Scott allowed Snipes to continue as supervisor may prove his undoing as she continues to “find” votes for Nelson. She should have been canned at the first sign of malfeasance, so why didn’t Scott get rid of her? Some say it’s because her firing would have inflamed racial tensions and resulted in mass protests in the contentious county. At any rate, she’s now in the position of essentially determining Scott’s political future.

It’s no more than he deserves, for cravenly tiptoeing around this slovenly whore’s audacious criminal behavior due to fear of provoking controversy over an irrelevant issue.

Tell me again about “the sanctity of our elections,” about American “democracy” being the envy of the world, whydon’tcha. This is 100-proof, straight-up banana-republic stuff here, folks, the pure, the blushful hippocrene itself of fraud and corruption. And the Democrat-Socialist criminal conspiracy has been doing it—not just in Flore-duh but right across the nation—for decades. And getting away with it.

Because we did nothing.

Nobody ever won by losing

Spinning Tuesday’s defeat by claiming that the restoration of the Democrat Socialist Insane Left to power, as some on our side are now doing, is somehow…well, if not a victory exactly, at least kind of a good thing?

Really? REALLY?

Sorry, guys, not seeing it here. Okay, I understand that keeping your chin up and trying to find the silver lining (if any) is generally a good and honorable thing. I get that, I really do. I even respect it; maintaining one’s dignity in the face of adversity and not whining like a little bitch—or a defeated Democrat Socialist—is also a good policy to follow, no matter what.

But let’s not kid ourselves here either: the loss of the House, along with seven governorships, is a serious blow. It’s going to cost the nation heavily, make no mistake. And gaining a couple or three in the Senate is pitiful compensation, although admittedly not nothing either.

The phrase I’m not seeing many of the sunny-side-up folks using is: lame duck. Like it or not, that’s what President Trump now is. He was always embattled, right from the very start. Now he’s hemmed in on all sides, in a seriously tough spot, way worse than before, with his room to maneuver greatly lessened. There will certainly be no second round of pump-priming tax cuts now; the gains made in restoring manufacturing and loosening the regulatory state’s stranglehold on the American economy can easily be undone by a House eager to cut off growth and prosperity. Yes, there are limits on the damage the Democrat Socialist House can do right enough. The Senate will have to go along with most of it, and there’s always the Presidential veto power too.

Trump better be prepared to use it, because he’s going to need to, and often—very likely more than any previous President ever has, in fact—if he wants to keep his nascent economic recovery humming and thrumming along.

Which, if there IS a bright side to this debacle, that’s it: Trump remains a cantankerous sort, a real fighter who relishes a down and dirty brawl, and excels at coming out on top even when facing truly daunting odds. For all the NeverTrumpTard harrumphing about his supposed lack of character, whatever hope remains is riding exclusively on that character now. He’s already showing his mettle, bless his heart. Example One: booting Jeff Sessions’ worthless ass. Example Two, even more delicious: booting Jim Acosta’s worthless ass, too.

The White House suspended press access for Jim Acosta on Wednesday after the CNN reporter had a tense exchange with President Trump during a press conference.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that the administration will “never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman” — referring to a tussle for the microphone between Acosta and a White House intern.

“This conduct is absolutely unacceptable,” Sanders said in a statement.

“The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration.”

Michael Goodwin has the right of it:

The conduct of a handful of so-called reporters during President Trump’s news conference was disgraceful beyond measure. This is not journalism, this is narcissism.

Actually, it’s a good bit worse than just narcissism, and it’s typical of a lot more than any “handful” of them too. I said long ago that Trump ought to toss the lot of the DC Enemedia out and simply refuse to grant them any access at all except under terms and conditions he sets, subject to revocation of even that should they put on another outrageous show of overt partisanship and disrespect like they did yesterday.

But it’s the reason behind their despicable conduct that’s the real problem here: they smell blood in the water after Tuesday’s disaster, just as Pelosi, Waters, Nadler, and the rest of the Leftard freak show do. If the Sunshine Boys on the nominal Right don’t know a defeat when they see one, the Democrat Socialist sharks surely do.

Hey, anybody remember when the Democrat Socialists were going to be taught a hard but vital lesson over the overturning of the fundamental principle of “innocent until proven guilty,” their contempt for decorum, responsible adult behavior, and the rule of law itself in the attempted lynching of Kavanaugh? Remember when that whole shitshow apparently “backfired” on them, and there would surely be a price paid for their despicable skullduggery, their brazen and intentional reduction of the Senate’s advise-and-consent function to a grotesque circus?

Guess not. But at least we know what we can expect to be standard procedure from now on, don’t we?

There’s another be-of-good-cheer argument being made here and there that I don’t quite get either, which basically goes like this: the Democrat Socialists won’t be able to help themselves and will overreach with unceasing investigations, subpoenas, and general harrassment of Trump. Simultaneously Waters, Pelosi, Schumer et al will be either unable or uninterested in restraining the lunacy of their foaming-at-the-mouth base, whose violence, confrontational sexual depravity, and overt hatred for this country, its mainstream citizens, and everything they and it represent will be exposed to Normals. The renewed push for eternal Democrat-Socialist wish-list items like open borders, gun control, tax hikes, and such, along with the rest of it, will combine to repel Real Americans. Thereby Trump’s re-election and the retaking of the House will be guaranteed.

To which I have to ask: normal Americans haven’t seen enough of that already? The Left was being subtle about it up until now? There was some way Normals could possibly have missed it, that they didn’t know? Maybe they pulled the lever for America’s version of the Raving Monster Loony Party by mistake or something? How much more of a demonstration can they possibly NEED?

Sorry guys, can’t see it. The American voter knew all of it full well, and enough of them went for the reprobates, grifters, liars, and freaks anyway to give them a win they in no way deserved—a meaningful win, not a trifling or insignificant one—one that’s going to have grave repercussions for this nation no matter how hard we try to plaster it over with smiley face stickers and feeble rationalization.

Comparisons with previous midterms, too, might be soothing to some. But that very idea is what frustrates me maybe more than anything: with Trump’s election and stunning success, it seemed that a long-overdue awakening had occurred among enough of us to solidify a new political reality for the longer term. The old paradigms had been overturned, a brand-new day had dawned at last. Finally, the monumental task of upending the malificent Deep State and repairing the destruction it had wrought could begin. With the Left’s maleficence fully exposed, there would be no turning back to the Old Order, no further need for indulgence of its deceits.

Alas, it seems plain now that those were hopeful assumptions on my part, at best premature if not outright baseless. I’m forced to reluctantly resume my longstanding previous position: that, a moment’s reprieve notwithstanding, what we’re engaged in here is still a rear-guard action, a fighting retreat, and not a bold, against-the-odds offensive. America That Was is still in the rearview, and looks further away than ever. Which isn’t to say that rear-guard actions aren’t worth the effort, or that there’s no honor in fighting them. No opportunity to unexpectedly whirl on the enemy and bloody his nose should be passed up; defiance of a hateful, contemptible foe is worthwhile for its own sake, the eventual outcome be damned. But we probably shouldn’t deceive ourselves into thinking it’s any more than it really is.

No, of course it ain’t the end of the world. We’re all fortunate enough to live in a country stable and prosperous enough that half of us can ignore politics entirely and get along just fine without engaging politically in any way. As they say, there’s a lot of ruin in a nation, and this one way more than the average.

Still, there’s no way around it: this past Tuesday, Americans had a chance to vote in favor of reinforcing and expanding a nascent national restoration. Too many of us chose to revert to decline and futility instead. And so now we get to put up with this shit again:




Sorry for the gloom and all, gang, but I just can’t find anything whatsoever to like about that.

Update! The solution, you ask? Ultimately, there ain’t but one: eliminating the Left’s iron grip on the American education system. As has been said here many times, all our problems begin there; the Left would never have been able to glom the power it has without the success of their Long March Through The Institutions. How the hell we’ll do it I’m sure I don’t know. But we’d better find a way, and fast.

“Catastrophe”

And coverup.

In 2013, hundreds of CIA officers — many working nonstop for weeks — scrambled to contain a disaster of global proportions: a compromise of the agency’s internet-based covert communications system used to interact with its informants in dark corners around the world. Teams of CIA experts worked feverishly to take down and reconfigure the websites secretly used for these communications; others managed operations to quickly spirit assets to safety and oversaw other forms of triage.

“When this was going on, it was all that mattered,” said one former intelligence community official. The situation was “catastrophic,” said another former senior intelligence official.

From around 2009 to 2013, the U.S. intelligence community experienced crippling intelligence failures related to the secret internet-based communications system, a key means for remote messaging between CIA officers and their sources on the ground worldwide. The previously unreported global problem originated in Iran and spiderwebbed to other countries, and was left unrepaired — despite warnings about what was happening — until more than two dozen sources died in China in 2011 and 2012 as a result, according to 11 former intelligence and national security officials.

The disaster ensnared every corner of the national security bureaucracy — from multiple intelligence agencies, congressional intelligence committees and independent contractors to internal government watchdogs — forcing a slow-moving, complex government machine to grapple with the deadly dangers of emerging technologies.

More than just a question of a single failure, the fiasco illustrates a breakdown that was never properly addressed. The government’s inability to address the communication system’s insecurities until after sources were rolled up in China was disastrous. “We’re still dealing with the fallout,” said one former national security official. “Dozens of people around the world were killed because of this.”

Now guess on whose watch this disastrous fiasco occurred. Go on, guess.

This is simply stunning. A rollup of networks across the world — an event that began in Iran, where the Obama administration would soon enough be negotiating its much sought-after “nuclear deal framework,” and ended with numerous deaths is the kind of thing of which intelligence nightmares and national-security disasters are made. One’s first instinct is to look back and see who was CIA director during that period: Leon Panetta (Feb. 2009-June 2011); Michael Morell (acting director, July-Sept. 2011); David Petraeus (Sept. 2011-Nov. 2012); Morell again (acting, Nov. 2012-March 2013); and finally John Brennan, who served out the remainder of the Obama administration.

In other words, a lot of churn during what we now know was a tumultuous time. Oddly enough, one important national-security position experienced exactly zero churn during these years, that of Homeland Security adviser. Which chair was occupied by John Brennan, until he stepped in at the CIA.

I emphasized the incompetent asshole Brennan above, just because. But it can’t fairly be said that the buck stopped with him; it went much higher than that, of course.

The fact is, networks get rolled up all the time, especially when the controlling agency becomes complacent, or goes to the well once too often. Communication methods must always be reassessed — especially when they seem to be working — and changed. But the Obama administration’s cavalier attitude toward security basics is nonetheless shocking, and evidence of the rank amateurism with which the Obamanauts approached foreign policy and national security.

Gee, imagine my surprise. Walsh also notes that the story finally surfaced on Nov 2, and sarcastically wonders why it “got mighty little attention from the national media.” He knows quite well, and so do you.

Proud Boys NYC ass-whupping: the REAL story

It’s ugly, all right.

I’ll try to piece together the facts as carefully as I can and to the best of my knowledge:

Shortly after the Metropolitan Republican Club invited former Taki’s Mag contributor Gavin McInnes to speak at an event on Friday, October 12, club representatives say they were besieged by “increasingly contentious phone calls at the Club, coordinated by activist groups on social media” for days demanding the event be canceled.

On the morning of the event, vandals spray-painted the anarchy “A” on the club’s front door, smashed windows, glued locks shot, and damaged a keypad entrance system.

They also left a note that, to a sane person, sounds a touch threatening:

Tonight, we put the Republican Party on notice, in defiance to the policy of mass misery they have championed.

The U.S. government has established concentration camps around the country for Latino people, shamelessly murdering black people, and continues its war machine that has slaughtered Muslim people with impunity for decades.…

While these atrocities persist unabated the Metropolitan Republican Club chose to invite a hipster fascist clown to dance for them, content to revel in their treachery against humanity….

Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize.

Maybe it’s my reptilian brain speaking here, but when I see groups of people showing up in public with their faces covered and screaming that you should be exterminated, I suspect they may be up to no good.

After Gavin delivered his speech, video shows members of his Proud Boysfraternal order of “Western chauvinists” leaving the club and being escorted away by police who were protecting them from shrieking throngs of predictably PMSing leftists spouting vitriol and threats.

The video proceeds for a little over three minutes as police shunt the Proud Boys away from the howling throngs. Then at some point it shows them suddenly darting down the street. Before you know it, there’s a street fight in front of a storefront.

Separate surveillance video from behind the storefront window shows a group of five masked people clad in black. Then it shows one of those “peaceful protesters” throwing a bottle. Then it shows those faceless “activists” getting swarmed by Proud Boys and beaten into the ground.

As far as I can tell, this was a case of mutual combat where one side lost and then cried foul.

Yep—just like the mewling, gutless, putrid little pukes they are. So far so good, far as I’m concerned; miserable little shits provoke a fight, miserable shits get their asses whupped and run crying from the scene. Read on for the ugly part, which came along in the aftermath and won’t surprise you in the least. The denouement:

Meanwhile, Antifa remains free to send threatening letters and smash windows and throw bottles.

In this sick social-status game over “tolerance,” only one side will be tolerated. In this war for the streets, only one side will be allowed to fight.

For however much longer the authorities can keep a lid on our side, anyway. Then, all of a sudden, what anybody might or might not be “allowed” to do won’t matter in the least. And after that, it REALLY gets ugly.

In a conversation the other day with someone lamenting the seemingly boundless forebearance and tolerance for abuse—to even include physical assault—on our side, I said this: there are basically two things humans won’t sit still for forever. One is hunger; no one, absolutely no one, is going to just sit back and let himself starve to death. The other: no one will put up with being used as a punching bag and a target indefinitely. Sooner or later, even the most tremulously meek schoolkid will get fed up and lash out in some fashion against a bully.

The Antifa fascists think they can go right on getting away with their bullshit. They’ve been encouraged to believe this by the authorities who have shielded them from consequence so far. One way or another, that, too, will not go on forever.

Update! In praise of the Proud Boys:

I was preparing to host a large event on the L.A. Westside for Ann Coulter, where she was going to give a talk and sign copies of her new book, Resistance Is Futile (buy it if you haven’t!). This was to be my first such event in five years. Back when I used to do high-profile conservative events on a regular basis, times were very different. No Trump, no Antifa threat. I never used to break my ass over security. I’d hire a minimum number of security guys, and I used venues that were far from impregnable, because the idea of violent thugs crashing them was not on anyone’s mind. In 2011, I did a large-scale gala right on Hollywood and Vine. Anyone walking down Hollywood Boulevard could have jumped a gate and they’d have been right in our midst. But we never worried about it, and it never happened. Ah, memories.

This time, I chose as impregnable a venue as I could. Second floor, no windows, no street access, only two doors, and underground parking. I asked the L.A. Proud Boys if they would serve as my security for the night, an offer they gladly accepted. The event was going to be completely private, invitation only, with the attendees culled from my personal, vetted mailing list. I was glad the Proud Boys were going to be there, but a week before the event, things took a turn for the bizarre, and all of a sudden the Proud Boys’ presence became far more vital.

My former podcast partner, Edwin Oslan, a self-proclaimed “punk rock right-winger” who moved to L.A. last year from West Bloomfield, Mich., was initially going to assist me on the event. After he cocked up the first task I gave him, I let him go. Bitter and angry, he demanded money from me. He also demanded that a Proud Boys leader pay for his drinks all night at the shindig. He had no rationale for those demands beyond a sense of entitlement. When he was refused, he decided to publicly dox the event, and then he embarked on a weeklong campaign to entice Antifa to violently disrupt the function.

Due to the doxxing, the venue received threats (including bomb threats).

The L.A. Proud Boys stepped up in a way that went beyond my expectations. Marshaling a force of almost forty men, they kept us, and the venue, safe—at the doors, inside the room, inside the garage, and at the perimeter. They were as discreet and professional as the highest-paid security guys I’d ever hired…and they didn’t ask for a penny. Far from being a band of “thugs,” they were disciplined, coolheaded, vigilant, and friendly. I cannot say enough good things about them. They saved the day. In fact, at the start of her speech, Ann remarked that she’d never felt safer in California.

That’s why the left is so committed to destroying the Proud Boys. They are our anti-Antifa, and we need them. Without them, who knows what might have happened at the Coulter event?

Truth is, I was caught off guard by Edwin’s behavior. I knew him for a year and a half, and I missed the warning signs that he was one of those guys who might pop off. But the Proud Boys saw it. Several months prior to my event and Edwin’s campaign to disrupt it, he’d tried to join the Proud Boys, and the L.A. Proud Boys leader smelled a rat immediately. This cycles back to my point about knowing there can be nutcases in our midst, and learning how to guard against them.

I slipped up this time, and I was saved by the Proud Boys. My personal debt to them is immense, and that’s the note I want to end on. As the left targets them for annihilation, the Proud Boys deserve support from all of us. Because one day, any one of us might need their help…to guard against our foes, or even one of our own.

Say what you will about ’em, but I’m all for the Proud Boys myself. They didn’t come along a moment too soon, and whatever you might think of Gavin McInnes he’s done good work with this, and my hat is off to him for it.

If it wasn’t for fraud, they’d never win anything

Vote fraud: a Democrat-Socialist joint.

President Trump warned on Twitter last week that law enforcement would be looking for “voter fraud” in the midterm elections. Many journalists quickly responded – as they always do – by dismissing the very existence of voter fraud.

CNN’s Jim Acosta tweeted “voter fraud in this country is actually very rare.”

Glenn Thrush of The New York Times claimed: “there is essentially no voter fraud in this country.” He instead asked, “Will the (Justice Department) Civil Rights division prevent/investigate a real threat-voter suppression?”

Journalists have credulously repeated unsupported, patronizing claims that in Georgia and other states, voter registration and absentee ballot laws somehow suppress minority votes.

The preference for opinion journalism over real reporting prompted Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame to tell a CNN summit last Monday, “We need to be doing stories that really look at whether or not there is widespread voter fraud…. we still need to be doing that basic aspect of the reporting.”

Follows, a list of examples of guess-what by guess-who from four states, one which no one should suppose is anything close to all-inclusive. The real tell, though, is how fiercely they shriek, scream, and wail about requiring some form of easily-obtainable ID to vote: there’s really no good reason to oppose such a common-sense rule other than the serious impediment it presents to the usual Democrat-Socialist program of electoral fraud and malfeasance.

All the more reason, then, to show up this November 6th, and every election; if it ain’t close, they can’t cheat.

The alternative to force: sometimes, there ain’t one

A dissection of Jonah Goldberg, and cuckoldry in general.

The alternative to force, of course, is persuasion. There are times when persuasion does not suffice, however, to establish justice—and in such moments of crisis the greatest of statesman have often used persuasion to spur the rightful use of force. In fact, in such times winning is often the best means of persuasion available. To what extent would Abraham Lincoln’s speeches have mattered if the North didn’t win the Civil War?

Of course, war is messy. It inexorably escalates, tempting both sides to throw principle to the wind, to use any means necessary for the sake of winning, and to dehumanize the other side. It risks lasting damage to the alpha and omega of politics—shared principle and common purpose. That is why no sane statesman would choose it willingly.

Nonetheless, there are times when shared principle and common purpose are already in dispute, and the war comes to you.

Goldberg acknowledges that the battle over Kavanaugh had to be fought, but the fact that “many voters rallied to Trump on the grounds that ‘at least he fights,’” troubles him greatly. Yet the “at least he fights” sentiment that Goldberg seemingly finds deplorable isn’t some kind of intrinsic evil. It was echoed by none other than Lincoln himself, who famously told the detractors of General Ulysses S. Grant, without denying Grant’s undeniable flaws: “I can’t spare this man–he fights.” Dan McCarthy superbly develops this point this week in his thoughts on “Consensus as Surrender.”

Goldberg, however, wrestles in National Review recently with his own “misgivings about the price of victory” in the effort to confirm Kavanaugh. He doesn’t like the fact that winning was “the least bad option.” Twisting and turning, Goldberg finds himself “less enthusiastic about the pro-Kavanaugh forces winning” than he was about the Left losing.

Why this anxiety? Goldberg plaintively warns that “there will be bad consequences no matter what, because we now live in a world where sub-optimal outcomes are the only choices available.” But we have always lived in such a world. This is practically the definition of political life in which, to use the parlance of our times, only the gradation of suckitude changes.

Why incessantly lament it so?

The central problem both parties face is not a matter of tone or rhetoric in the midst of the chaos and confusion—rhetorical and otherwise—caused by the fall of the old modes and orders. The salient fact of the moment is that the race is on to rethink and reground policy in light of our Republic’s founding principles. The Republican party must realign itself with the real needs of real people if it is to survive. There is no going back; the only way out is through.

And I’ll take winning—led by whoever can contrive to do so, using whatever means—over losing gracefully, seven days a week and twice on Sunday. Particularly when losing to the demonic Left means losing absolutely everything. To paraphrase the great Vince Lombardi, who could surely have taught today’s Cuckpublicans a thing or two: show me a dignified loser…and I’ll show you a loser. Another great Lombardi-ism, maybe even more relevant to this discussion: “If you can accept losing, you can’t win.

Live by the sword

Women hoist on their own petard.

A biological man who identifies as a female won a women’s world championship cycling event in California, sparking debate over how transgender athletes should be judged in sporting events.

Rachel McKinnon, an assistant professor of philosophy at the College of Charleston in South Carolina, took home the gold medal in the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.

“First transgender woman world champion…ever,” McKinnon posted on social media soon after the race.

While some applaud McKinnon’s success, not everyone is happy. Some argue it’s unfair for a man to be allowed to compete in a women’s sporting event because male bodies are fundamentally different than female bodies.

No. No, they are NOT. We are EQUAL, in every single way. Anything a man can do, a woman can do just as well. Period. Them’s the rules now, and if we Normals have to live by them, so does everyone else.

Third-place winner Wagner was one of the many people who voiced their outrage on Twitter.

“I was the 3rd place rider. It’s definitely NOT fair,” she said in response to a tweet by controversial commentator Katie Hopkins.

If he says he’s a woman, then he’s a woman. If he says he’s black, he is. If he says he’s a Cherokee, ditto. Deal.

Meanwhile, others came to McKinnon’s defense, calling the win a major accomplishment for transgender athletes.

The race’s second-place winner applauded McKinnon, and urged athletes who don’t think it’s fair to compete against the opposite sex to either deal with it, or not compete at all.

“I totally disagree. No one is a transgender to steal anyone’s medal. We had an honest race under UCI rules. If you compete you accept the rules, otherwise, don’t compete. I can only imagine what she had to go through in her life to be where she is now, how hard it is to fit in,” Carolien Van Herrikhuy tweeted.

See? Miss Also-Ran here truly gets it. It’s no longer about athletic excellence, skill, or honest and fair competition with a clear winner atop a hierarchy of other competitors who didn’t quite make the grade. It’s not about cream rising to the top, about the just reward of hard work and sacrifice on a reasonably level playing field, about losing with grace and dignity and a determination to do better next time around. It’s now about FEELINGS—about indulging a mentally ill person’s delusional fantasy in the name of political correctness. Now go home with your little participation trophy and shut up, H8TR.

McKinnon believes he had no biological advantage over his female competitors. He said he had to suppress his testosterone levels to “unhealthily low” levels to compete.

Umm…you’re not ALREADY doing that? And what on earth, pray tell, does “healthy” have to do with ANY of this?

“This is what the double-bind for trans women athletes looks like: when we win, it’s because we’re transgender and it’s unfair; when we lose, no one notices (and it’s because we’re just not that good anyway). Even when it’s the SAME racer. That’s what transphobia looks like,” the professor said.

“Transphobia.” I’m not sure how it is that these sad, sick people have so thoroughly convinced themselves that the rest of us are obssessed with them to the point that we’re actually “phobic” about them, but I would like to sincerely assure this guy that it is NOT the case. Trust me, the only time most of us think about you at all is when you’re trying to render plain and simple language meaningless, bend biology to suit your own narrow agenda, and force the rest of us to pretend that you’re something you’re not.

Those things, yeah, we might get a little annoyed about, although I’d still bet that most of us are just wishing you’d dry up and blow away already. But even then, we’re not annoyed because of what you are (or think you are); we’re annoyed because of what you’re doing: ramming your pathology down our throats, and demanding we redefine dysfunction as “normal.” Because reasons.

ZFG

I won’t be expounding at any length on the Kashoggi thing, because 1) I don’t give a shit, and 2) in the case of any putative “journalist”, much less a jihad-pimping Muslim Brotherhood camelhumper, getting himself chopped into red goo, see number 1. Hell, I could easily reel off a long, long list of American “journalists” who, in the case of their forcible dismemberment, I would also refer you to number 1, should anyone care to ask.

Any and all shitlibs/NeverTrumpTards (BIRM)—who are obviously trying to use this non-event as the week’s Big Gotcha to hang on Trump—who might be waiting for me to express horror, outrage, or anything other than complete disinterest had better settle in and make themselves comfortable, because I hereby assure one and all that it’s going be a long ‘un. I strongly suspect most real Americans share my ennui.

Worse? Worse than WHAT?!?

He’s right. Incomprehensible though it may seem, he’s right.

Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation was more than attempted character assassination, it was the liberals’ warning shot. Intended to be lethal, it also signaled the next one will be worse. No group is more dependent on the Supreme Court’s power than America’s left and they will stop at nothing to prevent losing further ground there.

The left’s anti-Kavanaugh strategy was clear. An accretion of accusations, rolled out to roil the press, was meant to sink a nomination they could not outright defeat. Timed to coincide with the calendar’s closing and punctuated by increasing demands, it was meant to bleed the nomination to death, not down it with a single blow.

That liberals’ orchestrated effort took both Congress and Court to new lows was not their concern. Their one and only goal was in not seeing the Supreme Court move any more to the right. Yet, the left’s effort also served notice: If they have their way, the process will only get worse.

That such an effort would be expended on this pick may seem surprising. After all, Kavanaugh was replacing Kennedy, another Republican nominee who often voted with conservatives. Kavanaugh’s ascension to the Court would not so much quantitatively change its 5-4 conservative majority, as it would qualitatively change it.

Looking ahead, the left’s reasoning becomes clearer, though. The Court’s next two oldest justices are liberals Ginsburg and Breyer. At 85 and 80 respectively, they are 15 and 10 years older than the next oldest justice, the conservative Thomas.

Liberals could easily see the Court move quantitatively to the right quite a bit — potentially going to a 7-2 conservative majority — before having an obvious chance to swing it back to the left.

Looking backward, liberals’ fear is understandable. America’s left have a long history of dependence on the Supreme Court. The Court has been the primary means of advancing their political agenda for decades. Unsurprisingly, they have a sentimental attachment to the Court.

The Court’s lack of dependence on a political majority has been crucial to liberals, America’s smallest ideology. Lacking the thick edge of the political wedge, America’s left have sought the thin one of the Court to advance issues for which they could never have constructed a public majority.

Of course, nobody ever went far wrong expecting more and worse from the Left. But they seem to have found another tack to take now that the Court is slipping from their grasp:

In 2016, Harvard Law professor Mark Tushnet urged liberal judges and justices to abandon “defensive-crouch liberalism” and remake legal precedent in their image. Two years later, he told Vox it’s time to “abolish” the Supreme Court by reversing the idea of judicial review — giving the Supreme Court a say on whether or not laws are constitutional.

“Do you think we’d be better off if we abolished the Supreme Court in its current manifestation?” Vox’s Sean Illing asked. Tushnet responded, “Yeah, I do. I’m a big fan of the dialogic approach.”

Tushnet also argued that judicial review would prevent the American people from debating constitutional issues on their own. “Judicial review may actually impair the public’s ability to engage in serious thinking about what the Constitution means…In a way, the Supreme Court simply takes on this conversation for itself, and leaves the citizenry as bystanders.”

Discussing the rejection of judicial review, Tushnet insisted, “I’ve felt this way for my entire career, regardless of the ideological makeup of the Supreme Court.”

The Harvard law professor even suggested that Supreme Court justices should be subject to 18-year term limits. “I think there is some enthusiasm among Democrats about alternative constitutional designs, but they can’t do anything about it now. But if they win in 2018 or 2020 or beyond, who knows?”

I do like that sneaky little “alternative constitutional designs” subterfuge, don’t you? Weasel-wording rarely gets more slippery than that construction, and my hat’s off to this oleaginous tyranny-pimp for it. Most scrumptiously delicious part of the whole grease-pie, though? This:

Despite Tushnet’s insistence that he has always “felt this way,” in 2016 he argued something entirely different. In an article published in May 2016, the Harvard Law professor argued that liberals should abandon “defensive-crouch constitutionalism.”

Among other things, the professor argued that liberals should embrace the idea that “The culture wars are over; they lost, we won.” He boldly compared the conservative “losers” to the defeated Axis powers from World War II.

“My own judgment is that taking a hard line (‘You lost, live with it’) is better than trying to accommodate the losers, who – remember – defended, and are defending, positions that liberals regard as having no normative pull at all,” he argued. “Trying to be nice to the losers didn’t work well after the Civil War, nor after Brown. (And taking a hard line seemed to work reasonably well in Germany and Japan after 1945.)”

To quote Treacher yet again: they’ll say anything they think will get them through the next five minutes. Absolutely anything at all. And they’ll directlt contradict themselves eighteen times before lunch each and every day, and never bat an eye over it.

Ahem. You lost. Live with it, fuckface—every last sobbing, squalling one of you. Or go lie down in the tub and open a vein, for all I give a shit.

Lieawatha trips over own dick

I still say somebody needs to sit Trump down and hammer it home that it’s FAUXcahontas, not POcahontas, dammit.

Why did Sen. Elizabeth Warren spend all these years claiming to be a Native American?

Why, to manipulate affirmative action rules so she could get herself a job at Harvard as a “woman of color,” of course.

I don’t much care about Warren’s ethnicity, but she is not, in any genuine sense, a racial or ethnic minority. Not in blood. Not in experience. Under her standards, how many Americans would qualify as Native American? Or put it this way: is being 1/1,024th African enough to claim “minority” status in a professional setting? I’m asking for the liberals who believe race-based hiring is an important means of facilitating diversity and ensuring fairness.

It was Warren who made it all an issue. We don’t fully know how important Warren’s claims were in her career. There is, however, much evidence that her self-driven minority claims in the 1990s were helpful. Warren, who once maintained her family had “high cheekbones like all of the Indians do,” was listed as a “minority faculty member” by The University of Pennsylvania. She had the school switch her designation from white to Native American. Warren self-identified as a “minority” in the legal directory, and Harvard Law School preposterously listed her as one of the “women of color” the school had hired. On job applications, Warren was very specific in claiming that she had Cherokee and Delaware Indian ancestry.

When her supposed Native American heritage came under scrutiny during her first Senate bid, Warren presented a recipe she had published in her cousin’s cookbook as evidence of her background. It was signed “Elizabeth Warren — Cherokee.” Later we learned that even the recipe was taken verbatim from an article in The New York Times five years earlier.

It was actually two recipes, for “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat” and “Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing,” neither of which were ever exactly staples of the Cherokee diet, shall we say. Oh, but it gets worse yet for the deceitful, carpetbagging phony:



Does it get even more worserer for this fake phony fraud? Oh, you betcha:

In a statement released Monday, the Cherokee Nation blasted Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren for trotting out the results of a DNA test she claims prove she is part Cherokee.

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a statement. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation.”

“Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong,” Hoskin continued in his statement. “It makes a mockery of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is proven. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

She doesn’t give a damn about your tribal interests, your heritage, your feelings, or anything else. She used you like a dirty dish towel to get something she wanted and advance her career, that’s all. My advice? If you’re ever relocating across country, don’t accept any blankets from this whiter-than-white devil. Meanwhile, Hillary!™ seems to have some DNA issues of her own.

Hillary Clinton Releases DNA Test Results Proving She’s Only Half Lizard Person
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Shortly after Elizabeth Warren released a DNA test that may or may not show that she is 1/1024th Native American, failed presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton showed the results of a recent DNA test that conclusively proved she is only 50% Reptilian.

The test, conducted by a renowned DNA expert, showed that only 50% of her blood comes from reptilian humanoids from space bent on destroying humanity. Many Washington insiders had claimed she was 100% reptile, but these claims are now known to be a hoax.

Well, at least the “bent on destroying humanity” part still holds, anyway.

Is NOTHING sacred?

And I don’t mean John Henry, necessarily. I mean the goddamned ROCK, buster.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play folk hero John Henry in an upcoming Netflix movie. Until the recent backlash, I was unaware that Johnson is only half black; his mother is Samoan.

Some think Johnson, who is among the highest-paid actors in the world, is not black enough to play a black man in the movies. One wrote, “John Henry was a very dark skin man & yes that matters.” Yet, John Henry is mythological. The skin shade of the “real” John Henry is uncertain; and like all folk tales, many aspects of the story “are subject to debate.”

Other critics say Dwayne Johnson hasn’t proclaimed his blackness enough to qualify as black. One tweet read, “The Rock is black when it’s profitable and racially ambiguous when it isn’t. We need a proud, strong, all-day black man to play John Henry.” 

Oh, for fuck’s sake. Remind me of that the next time you shrieking twerps want, say, Will Smith to play Jim West, or a black lesbian to play Captain Kirk, or any other such PC douchebaggery you degenerates cook up in your never-ceasing “reboots” of classic old movies or TV shows.

It reminds me of the ridiculousness that greeted me not long after I had moved to Atlanta back in ’98. The local teewee “news” wasted a couple of days covering, with somber seriousness, a big protest at the Keebler factory over the lack of any black Keebler elves in the commercials for their cookies. Nobody bothered to break it to these mental giants that, uhh, there aren’t any elves, black or white, in the first place. Nor did they bake their delicious cookies inside a hollow tree. Because, you see, ELVES DON’T EXIST. So when dreaming up imaginary cartoon-spokesthings to advertise said cookies, you’re free to make them any skin color you might wish to. The whole ward of douchenoodles would probably have suffered a mass nervous breakdown over having that shocking news broken to ’em.

Would those criticizing the selection of Dwayne Johnson to play John Henry be outraged by the idea that their mindset is the same as those who sought to determine who was Jewish in Nazi Germany?

Why would they? They—well, their ideological forerunners—were the ones doing it. And THOSE ovens were real. And were not manned by elves, either. They were manned by dedicated, diehard socialists, not at all far removed in either philosophical or practical terms from the ones blighting the landscape and wet-belching up moronic Tweets against The Rock today.

Can you even imagine how miserable it must be to have to go through life whining and moaning and offended and upset over every least little insignificant thing you encounter? There’s absolutely nothing that doesn’t bother them, nothing they can leave alone or let slide without complaint. Even the most granular, fleabitten nothing on Earth gets conflated into a major ass-ache by these pusnutted pissants. It must be awful.

Serves ’em right.

Why they’re mad

Fighting mad, one might say.

Kavanaugh was angry because his life had been destroyed. The left is angry because it wants power.

Leftist political anger inflicted sadistic torments on Brett Kavanaugh for political reasons. And the media pretends that this political anger is somehow more worthy than the outrage of its victim.

The media left demanded to know what right Brett Kavanaugh had to be angry. They mocked his pain, ridiculed his suffering with the venal contempt and snarky hatred that now passes for leftist comedy.

But a better question would be what right does the left have to its endless anger?

Eight years of running the country didn’t leave it any more generous toward its opponents, any less hungry for power, or any less tribal, partisan and furious than it had been in 2007. The left isn’t angry because it cares about rape victims. Not when it’s lining up to buy tickets to Bill and Hillary’s latest tour.

It’s angry because, as Holder tweeted, it wants power.

And it’s willing to destroy every political, civic, cultural, social and moral norm to get it. The left doesn’t believe in norms because it doesn’t believe in any compromise or standard. All it has is its will to power.

Some people have the right to win elections (Hillary Clinton) and others (Donald Trump) don’t. Some justices have the right to be confirmed without campaigns of personal destruction (Democrat nominees like Kagan and Sotomayor) and others (Republican nominees like Bork, Thomas and Kavanaugh) don’t.

And some people have the right to be angry (New York Times and Washington Post readers) and others (Trump supporters and Front Page Magazine readers) don’t. The entitlement of double standards is essential to the leftist quest for power which is about manufacturing perceived inequality in order to administrate mandates of total inequality. Disparate impact justifies affirmative action. If black workers or students underperform, then poor white workers and students must go to the back of the line.

It deprives people of their rights and it responds to their anger with more anger. In its rage, it wipes out every political and social norm it can manage until its opponents are being hounded out of restaurants, fired from their jobs, assaulted on the street, shot at charity baseball games, smeared as rapists, doxed by reporters and staffers, censored on the internet and eavesdropped on by corrupt federal agencies.

There isn’t a legal or political norm that Obama didn’t violate during his time in office. Reporters were spied on. So were Republicans. The IRS and the FBI were used to target political opponents. A man was sent to jail for making a YouTube video. The DOJ was used to go after folks who mocked Obama.

After eight years of political terror, the Democrats have settled into accusing their political opponents of treason and demanding their imprisonment, everything from intimidation to death threats to attempted murder, and trying to destroy a Supreme Court nominee based on the most baseless allegations.

This is what leftists have done to our political norms. And what enrages them about Kavanaugh is not any feigned concern for our political norms, but that our norms survived their tantrums and dirty tricks.

To Hell with them, too. If they want to see anger, let them keep right on. They just might find out eventually that “Kill ’em all, let God sort ’em out” ain’t just a bumper sticker anymore.

Burn in Hell, loser(s)

I missed out on commemorating this most joyous anniversary last week.

Fifty-one years-ago this week, Ernesto “Che” Guevara got a major dose of his own medicine. Without trial, he was declared a murderer, stood against a wall, and shot. If the saying “What goes around comes around” ever fit, it’s here.

“When you saw the beaming look on Che’s face as his victims were tied to the stake and blasted apart by the firing squad,” said a former Cuban political prisoner to this writer, “you saw there was something seriously, seriously wrong with Che Guevara.”

The one genuine “accomplishment” in Che Guevara’s life was the mass-murder of defenseless men and boys. Under his own gun dozens died. Under his orders thousands crumpled. At everything else, Che Guevara failed abysmally, even risibly. For instance, during his Bolivian “guerrilla” campaign, Che split his forces whereupon they got hopelessly lost and bumbled around, half-starved, half-clothed and half-shod, without any contact with each other for six months before being wiped out. They didn’t even have WWII vintage walkie-talkies to communicate and seemed incapable of applying a compass reading to a map. They spent much of the time walking in circles and were usually within a mile of each other. During this blundering they often engaged in ferocious firefights against each other.

“You hate to laugh at anything associated with Che, who murdered so many,” says Felix Rodriguez, the Cuban-American CIA officer who played a key role in tracking him down in Bolivia. “But when it comes to Che as “guerrilla” you simply can’t help but guffaw.”

So, for many, the question remains: how did such an incurable doofus, sadist and epic idiot attain such iconic status?

Well, essentially, because all Leftists are moronic shitstains nursing violent revenge fantasies against everyone who is more successful, more talented, more courageous, more intelligent, and more worthwhile human beings generally than they’ll ever be. Via Ed, Tim Blair takes the ball and runs with it, by linking the socialists’ standard-issue fever-dreams of mass slaughter as embodied by the hideous and despicable Che to another murderous commie Progtard.

I repeat: burn in Hell, every last demonic man Jack of youse.

It’s a white thing

And I don’t want to understand.



The thug yelling “Yeah, you little white motherf**ker. Yeah, you’re a f**king whitey, a little whitey, aren’t you?” appears to be a “f**king whitey” himself, at least to judge from his pasty white calves. So are most of the other protesters. But, rather in the way all those white ladies on “The View” kept going on about “old white Republican men” during the Kavanaugh business, for an increasing number of white people, sneering at your fellow white people as “white people” is the preferred epithet. This is sad and at one level psychologically unhealthy – like living in a ward full of self-proclaimed Napoleons laughing at the one guy who isn’t. But on the other hand it shows diversity is now so deeply ingrained that white folks can celebrate it all by themselves.

As the scenes from Portland remind us, the cold civil war – growing hotter by the day – is really between two classes of white people, even if one of them insists on pretending it isn’t.

Well, sure, but they’re the GOOD ones, see. But if that isn’t ludicrous enough for ya:

Perhaps white people who prefer not to identify as white people could become whxte people – in the same way that a remarkable number of UK businesses are now using the word “womxn”:

Companies have come under fire for using the word “womxn” instead of “woman,” after worrying the latter word excludes transgender people.

Not so long ago, in the days of “sex changes”, the point about becoming a woman was to become a woman. But now trans-women are a thing unto themselves, so the term “woman” is exclusionary. “I am woman, hear me…pipe down about it in case everyone thinks I’m being non-binary-phobic.”

A squirrel can identify as an emotional support animal, a white man can identify as a person of color, but a woman can no longer identify as a woman because that’s transphobic. One begins to detect among some of the chippier feminists a faint sense that this trans thing is a reverse phallocentric takeover of the entire woman business.

I don’t have a squirrel in this fight, but the above three stories are not the daily news churn of a healthy society.

Oh, great. Just when I was finally getting used to “wymyn” and “xyr” and all.

Depends on what the meaning of “mob” is

Uh oh, looks like shitlibs have decided on another word we’re not allowed to use anymore.

There is nothing wrong with “fighting” in politics. We don’t need to be hypersensitive about the metaphorical excesses of partisanship (unless it’s Donald Trump or Sarah Palin — then we must take it literally, seriously, and hysterically). But the problem is that Democrats have a bad habit of acting as if every political setback they experience is caused by some act of criminality. This instigates lots people to act like a bunch of children—or worse.

When Democrats lose the House, it’s because of mythical unilateral gerrymandering or mythical mass-voter suppression. When they lose the Senate, the system suddenly becomes an antiquated relic of the 1700s. When they lose the Supreme Court, there is a “legitimacy crisis.” When they lost the 2000 election, it was stolen by the Supreme Court. In 2004, George W. Bush rigged the election in Ohio. When Democrats lost in 2016, those omnipotent Russians and the unfair Electoral College snatched the office from its preordained owner.

The Republican Senate majority “cheated” Obama out of a seat. The Republicans are “packing” the court by seating the same number of justices Barack Obama did. Every legislative action that fails to comport with liberal thinking is to them an apocalyptic event and the end of “democracy.”

If all of this were true, the only question is: why aren’t more people joining a mob? If your government is stealing your country, why wouldn’t you embrace boorishness, or even violence?

Yet Democrats still act perplexed by the backlash. Even now the mob within their ranks is being cast, predictably, as a conservative fiction. “Republicans Seize On ‘Angry Mob’ Mantra To Keep Their Midterm Base Fired Up,” says NPR, and so on. CNN insists that it’s a normal, everyday demonstration of free expression to chase politicians’ wives out of public places. You may not use the word “mob” in their presence.

“The media’s insistence that mob action & intimidation tactics have not been deployed by the left here — stuff that goes well beyond the normal parameters of acceptable protest — is pure gaslighting,” Guy Benson recently noted. “Especially as major national Democrats shrug it off or even egg it on.”

No, it’s not the Parisian mob. It’s more like one of those illiberal campus mobs that attempt, often successfully, to shut down debate. A mob is a disorderly crowd of people who have the intent “of causing trouble or violence.” So, for example, that means people who interrupt lawful proceedings, or people who wildly bang on the Supreme Court doors when a vote doesn’t go their way, or people who surround politicians (and their families) and chase them out of public places like restaurants, or people who join groups that smear other Americans without evidence, and those who try to undermine the rule of law through intimidation.

Well, see, it’s diff’runt when they do it. Just like always.

But you just gotta love it anyway. Just a little bit of pushback, a little bit of showing fight, and all of a sudden they’re flipping their wigs completely—wreaking violent mayhem when they can get away with several of them sucker-punching some lone wolf and running away, curling into a fetal ball and crying themselves comatose when they can’t.

But if you think this is funny—and it is—just wait til we REALLY start punching back…twice as hard.

Civility? Nah update! Schlichter has the right idea:

I liked it when the howling loonies started pounding on the bronze doors of the Supreme Court like Brett Kavanaugh was totally going to open them up and invite the freaks in to air their many stupid grievances over a hot cup of Too Damn Bad. I also liked it when Lindsey Graham dissed that silly shrieking harpy as he adjusted his tie and smirked. And I liked it when Jesse Kelly channeled Andrew Breitbart by heading down to the protest with a t-shirt that said“Hands Off My Uterus.” I liked a lot of things about last week, and all of them involved liberal jerks being unhappy.

Their pain feeds my soul.

Now, in the wake of our total victory over the forces of whiny, stupid evil – I’m trying to think of another term to describe people who think the hysterical chicks in The Crucible were the good guys and that Atticus Finch was the bad guy – some voices on the right are cautioning us to be magnanimous. To not be sore winners. To extend a hand of friendship to those who oppose us.

Oh, I’m extending a hand, but only part of one. A single finger. Guess which one.

This is not the time to go back to the same limp, listless conservatism that got us here in the first place. My new book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy talks a lot about how the same Conservative, Inc., goofs who want us to surrender now that we’ve won got us here by failing to understand what they were up against in the Before Trump era, when nice guys like Mitt the Cancer-Causing Dog Torturer literally finished last. They were blind out of professional courtesy; the looney left are fellow members of the same elite class, and our conservativish betters didn’t want to rock the boat – or donor-filled cruise ship, as it were.

Ahoy, losers – we’re woke and free of your fussy influence. We have crushed our enemies and driven them before us, and now we hear the sweet music that is the lamentation of the women-identifying persons. You Never Trumpers who used to talk a big game about conservative success to milk the marks now look upon our success and despair. We look at the festival of insanity and choose to giggle. 

Damn straight. Let them send their mobs right on; we got the means to deal with ’em when the time comes. In the meantime, we’ll just keep right on laughing—and winning.

“It’s not only the right who will bleed” update! Careful what you wish for, shitlibs.

The Democrats have overtly committed to violence. If we needed further evidence, we need only look at what Antifa did in Portland the other day, where the police faded away, ceding the streets to Antifa, whose members blocked streets and ordered traffic and pedestrians to obey, for no other purpose than to show that they must be obeyed. Those who didn’t were hit with batons. We’ve all seen the video of a septuagenarian trying to get away and being punished. Now the Democrats who control Portland are considering charges against him…

Dick Durbin, oleaginous Democratic senator on the Judiciary Committee, described the protesters at the Kavanaugh nomination hearings as the “sounds of democracy.” The left’s collective tantrum had nothing to do with democracy. It had everything to do with intimidation and violence.

Everyone knows that Maxine Waters has been calling for violence since the day Donald Trump took office. The left has always been violent. It’s only now that the leftists admit it. No…now, they advocate for it.

It bears repeating that Democrats, unable to win an argument on the merits, or obtain power through elections, are now calling for violence. I include Antifa when I discuss the Democrats because Antifa is their private militia. The media are their propaganda arm.

To be perfectly honest, I think the left is right. It’s time we exercised our “voices of democracy” and did some “kicking,” as well as displayed a little “incivility.” I don’t know about you, but if I’m driving down the Yellow Brick Road, and Antifa blocks my legal access or right to proceed, I will be polite and make every effort to go around as I go on my way. But, should one of those Halloween costume-wearing, tough-guy militia members get in my way and get a “brush back,” I’m not going to lose any sleep. I’ll make the damages up on the GoFundMe account.

The really great thing about all this is, the more Real Americans see this insanity, the more votes it will cost the Democrat Socialists.

Mob rules update! A cautionary note:

The rhetoricians of violence, intimidation, and harassment may be stupid – they were certainly self-deluded enough to lose “the most winnable presidential campaign in history” – but they’re not stupid enough to believe that no one will take their exhortations literally. When the eruptions of left-wing mob behavior are as numerous, as public, and as well documented as they’ve been, there can be no serious doubt that that’s exactly what’s happening. It started on Inauguration Day. It’s only grown worse since then.

We have to assume that they know what they’re doing. We have to assume that they intend the consequences. And we have to allow them no smallest, thinnest shred of concealment from the odium they’ve earned. They must be made to wear it – in some cases, all the way to prison. What else, pray tell, are laws against incitement to riot meant for?

A few brassy persons on the Right have said things to the effect that if a real civil war should erupt, the Right will prevail, because “we have all the guns.” This is foolishness on a potentially catastrophic level. Guns don’t matter nearly as much as the willingness to accept risks to self and loved ones, or the will to fight and win regardless of the cost. What evidence do we have that the Right is adequately supplied with those things? As Right-leaning Americans tend to be rather older than their putative adversaries – men with wives, children, homes, and workplaces to worry about – the matter admits of considerable doubt.

And while we sit here complacent about our preparedness, the chain grows link by link. One end lies in the hands of men and women who are determined to return to power, and never again to be removed from it. The other is connected to the thugs and harassers, and they follow their masters’ exhortations willingly.

Counteraction is required. Perhaps it must be of the sort Mr. “If they bring a knife, we bring a gun” has prescribed for his allegiants. Perhaps something less tawdry will suffice. But we cannot preserve the Republic when only our enemies, would-be totalitarians entirely devoid of scruple determined to regain power at any price, are willing to fight.

Time to pray.

The will of the Right to engage the Left fully is by no means a given; Righty has a lot more to lose from such a war, regardless of the outcome, whereas Lefty has almost nothing at all left. One side will be fighting for an abstraction, an idea; the other, for nothing more than raw, unbridled power. Too, the more hardcore on the Left are arming themselves, and getting real military-type training too.

On the other hand, people will only let themselves be used as punching bags and targets for so long before they lash out. My guess is that Righty is every bit as fed up with Lefty violence against them as they are with, say, the Deep State status quo or merely-verbal mockery from the hate-filled, frothing Left—and those are by no means separate issues. It’s only to be expected that largely comfortable, prosperous, stable people will be reluctant to go to war. As the Left’s provocations become ever more severe, though, that reluctance will likely evaporate.

The upcoming election, along with 2020 (should we make it that far), might just be the last desperate chance at resolving this conflict peacefully. I have serious doubts about just how good a chance that really is.

Don’t gloat?

Yeah, no.


Ace sets up his response to this “please can’t we just get back to losing with dignity” bushwa in an earlier post. Reposted here in full, and to hell with fair use, since the central point (which I’ll take the additional liberty of boldfacing) is one I’ve already made a thousand times and don’t feel like restating myself:

A Look Back at the NeverTrumpers Who Brainlessly Taunted Trump Supporters With a Stupid Twitter-Snark “But He Fights!” Jab
—Ace of Spades

But Gorsuch.

But Kavanaugh.

But a 49 Year Low in the Unemployment rate.

But He Fights.

Let me point out that the same people who attack Trump for juvenile baiting on Twitter try to do so themselves. Oh, I’m sure they’ll make excuses why they should be permitted to do this while Trump should be condemned; phony moralists and sanctimonious hypocrites are forever minting reasons why they are entitled to do things that other people are forbidden to.

SJWs do this a lot. And the SJWs of the nominal right, get this, imitate them.

They’ll say “But he’s the President!”

Okay– but you guys are writers for what pretends to be an important intellectual magazine, National Review. We might say Trump should have more care to defend the dignity of the office.

Should not Jonah Goldberg et al take more care to defend the dignity of a once-illustrious magazine? Or are the juvenile taunts an admission that that magazine no longer has much dignity to protect?

The other thing I’d note is that these people do fight, in their own condescending, nasty twitter-coward way.

It’s just that they believe in fighting conservatives and fighting to defend the leftist-dominated culture and institutional order.

They will fight — but for causes they believe in. Such as the prerogatives and privileges of the left.

What they’re really complaining about is Trump’s mainstreaming of the idea that the liberal, Rockefeller-Republican-dominated fake-conservative Republican Establishment should be fought.

They don’t want that fought. They don’t want their progressive friends fought, or not too seriously at least. (They like pretend-fighting and then having cocktails later.)

What they want are genuine conservatives and grassroots activists — the dirty upstarts! — fought.

Ace’s link above is the same one Steyn used in the post I excerpted below, which I didn’t transcribe. You should check it out despite my laziness, because it’s a stinging evisceration of a whole slew of NeverTrumpTards who deserve every bit of it, climaxing thusly:

The list goes on and on.

As noted:  They take the one thing that’s actually the most true, and marginalize it to reduce or eliminate its potency. And Trump beat them all because they thumb-wrestle for participation trophies while he dropkicks people for the win.

Just to be very clear: If Trump didn’t fight, then Brett Kavanaugh would be a footnote and right now we’d be fending off claims that Amy Coney Barrett once attended a party where someone said something racist.

You’re damn right Trump fights. And it’s a good thing too.

The greatest, most biting irony of all this? What got them Trump in the first place was that they never bothered to fight anybody but other conservatives, just as Ace notes (“The great thing about never fighting is that you never win and therefore never had the opportunity to gloat“) and I’ve said over and over again. As for “don’t gloat”? Well, it just so happens that that article was written by longtime liberal activist and Obama-admin appointee Cass Sunstein, headlined: “GOP’s Toasts to Kavanaugh Are Unspeakably Cruel.”

So, y’know, yeah. Sunstein even has the balls to trot out a Lincoln comparison (!), and moans piteously about the importance of “empathy” and not “mocking human suffering” without once acknowledging the suffering Kavanaugh and his entire family were put through by a dishonest smear campaign waged against him by “people” who took enormous pleasure in the pain they inflicted in service to a lie.

“Empathy”? Kiss my ass, shitlib. “Don’t gloat”? Better peddle that someplace else, ain’t no market for it here. You and yours will never, EVER suffer pain enough to suit me.

Never NeverTrump

Once a cuck traitor, always a cuck traitor.

For two years, NeverTrump has united with the Left to sabotage Trump’s presidency, smear congressional Republicans who support him, and ridicule Trump voters. Led by Bill Kristol, the editor-at-large-and-getting-larger of the Weekly Standard, this group is as culpable as the news media and Democratic politicians for the smoldering hellscape that now is American politics.

NeverTrump has bolstered the sham special counsel probe into phony claims of election collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin; they have joined the Left on several occasions to demand that the president be removed from office—in late August, Stephens insisted the president’s actions met the “high crimes and misdemeanors” standard for impeachment. They mock Trump supporters with the childish, “But, Gorsuch!” mantra at every presidential misstep, an insult aimed at Americans who voted for Trump singularly out of concern about the future composition of the Supreme Court.

Many NeverTrumpers including National Review’s Goldberg and David French have helped legitimize Michael Avenatti, the creepy porn lawyer also trying to take down Kavanaugh. The president has been compared to Adolf Hitler and Mussolini by this crowd, while they compare themselves to courageous dissidents who fought communism. “Expert” Tom Nichols claimed Trump voters are ruining the country, and the Washington Post’s reprehensible Jennifer Rubin condoned violence against Trump aides, including Sarah Sanders, the first mother to serve as White House press secretary.

On every issue, big and small, NeverTrump worked in lockstep with the media, Hollywood and the Democratic Party to undermine Trump’s presidency and damage anyone aligned with him.

There are still NeverTrump holdouts. Kristol, Nichols, Rubin and Boot are not just opposing Kavanaugh’s nomination but urging people to vote for Democrats this fall, which would empower the very thugs who are leading this assault on our political system and our democracy. Nichols argued that Kavanaugh’s conduct is worse than the Democrats, and accused him of buying into conspiracy theories. So NeverTrumper nutters still abound.

But their numbers are shrinking, and it’s only a matter of time before they turn on each other. That will be a gratifying scene to watch unfold. Sadly, the pile of post-2016 political wreckage lies all around us, with Brett Kavanaugh now in the center of the debris. And NeverTrump, even those now seeking atonement, is as responsible for this as anyone.

I always said I considered Vichy GOPers to be even more reprehensible than the Democrat Socialists. Admittedly, some are worse than others; even Kurt Schlichter, after all, was a NeverTrumper early on. The likes of Rubin, Kristol, Goldberg, and French, and Boot, however, are beyond redemption, and needn’t look for leniency or forgiveness from me. Not that they’d care about such a thing, of course.

Rubin, for one, was never really a conservative anyway; she was one of a handful of liberals terrified by 9/11 who embraced the neocon War On Something Or Other and has slowly slid back into liberal-“moderate” irrelevance since, as the threat to her personally seems to have receded. The others seem to be burdened with a smug, sanctimonious sense of being part of an “elite” which causes them to recoil in horror at Trump’s “obnoxiousness,” his “rudeness” and “coarseness,” his cantankerous eagerness to go to the mattresses in bare-knuckle, down-and-dirty battle with his (our) enemies. Their preference for losing in a genteel fashion rather than risk winning by involving themselves in a vulgar brawl long ago rendered them useless and obsolete. Their obvious disdain for the ill-bred, ignorant hoi polloi who support Trump is no less offensive than the Left’s always has been.

And all that makes them something perhaps even more damaged, crippled, and contemptible than being merely “traitors,” at least in the current intoxicating climate of WINNING: it makes them losers. Sore losers, at that. They can do their sniffing and grumbling from the sidelines now; they’re as far removed from the great struggle to reclaim and restore this country as Julius Caesar’s ghost is, and nothing they say or do matters even slightly to anybody but themselves. They’ve reduced themselves to spectators now, and the pain that surely causes them is no more than their just deserts.

Fake news!

Oh, but this is rich.

CNN’s Jim Acosta posted about the looming confirmation vote on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, ticking off a laundry list of liberal causes that might be affected by a more conservative court. Acosta was called out for spouting liberal talking points and did not take it well, deleting a tweet that accused his GOP critics of “bullying the press” and whining, “Can’t you guys win gracefully?”

Acosta initially tangled with the account of Don”Stew” Stewart, Deputy Chief of Staff to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). The deleted tweet was a reply to the personal account of Zach Roday, who describes himself as, ” @RepublicanAGscomms director | previously Paul Ryan’s political spox, House flack, Scott Walker ‘14, Romney/Ryan, Senate aide “

Acosta tweeted, “With a single speech, Sen. Collins, announcing her support for Kavanaugh, has paved the way for a much more conservative Supreme Court for the next generation. Abortion rights, gay rights, climate change, and health care reform could well be impacted for decades to come.”

Stewart tweaked him with, “Heads up: I think PFAW hacked your account.” (Note: PFAW is the acronym for the leftist group founded by Norman Lear, People for the American Way.)

The thin-skinned Acosta whined to Stewart about the First Amendment, “More bashing the press by those in power. First Amendment getting you down Stew?” Stewart replied, “Nope, in fact I was exercising my First Amendment rights. You get to express opinions; I get to express opinions. That’s how it works. Thanks for the RT.” Acosta came back, “Awww Stew… I get it. Reporting you don’t like gets labeled “opinion.” Hey buddy.. I’ve been called worse.”

Acosta must really love his King of the Whiney Media Bitches status; he seems awfully determined to maintain it, at any and all cost.

“Bullying the press.” No, Jim, it’s calling you out for the lying propagandists you are. Sorry our President ripped your mask off and left you cowering and cringing, fully exposed to public view and all. But hey, them’s the breaks. If you really think a little gentle ribbing is “bullying,” better brace yourself; by all rights you and yours got a lot more, and a lot worse, coming yet.
