Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Take ’em down, take ’em down, take ’em ALL down

OHHH, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease let this happen.

The DoJ’s rejection of a last-ditch appeal by the legal team representing fired FBI Director Andrew McCabe and the recommendation by federal prosecutorsthat charges actually be filed against the documented liar, leaker, and co-conspirator in the attempted coup against duly elected President Donald Trump puts the deep state in a face-to-face confrontation with a potential legal Armageddon. An indictment will leave McCabe with no excuse for not carrying out his threat to bring them all down with him.

Investigative journalist Sara Carter confirmed McCabe’s threat on the March 16, 2018 episode of “The Ingraham Angle”:

CARTER: He lied. Plain and simple he lied. A lot of former FBI agents that I spoke to say I hope he’s fired. Is he going to get fired today? That’s all I kept hearing all day because they realize if they had done this, they would have been fired too.

And there’s a lot of ongoing investigations right now. This is not just about Michael Horowitz at the DOJ right now. Remember, there’s a prosecutor looking into the unmasking, the FISA abuse that has been taking place with Carter Page in particular. So, we have a number of investigations and McCabe is worried. He’s said over and over again, if I go down, I’m taking everybody else with me.

McCabe was at the heart of all the criminal activity and knows where the bodies are buried. His silence until now may be traced to the fact that to date no one has actually been held accountable. 

Bold mine, and absolutely delicious. If there’s still any hope at all of seeing justice done in the Russiagate scandal, it would now seem to rest firmly on McCabe’s threat. Just one problem though—a BIG problem—and Bill knows what it is:

They’ll indict him just so they can get him into a jail where, after an amazing series of coincidences, “failures and lapses” malfunctioning equipment, etc., he will commit suicide by strangling himself with his bare hands.

Or else have a “heart attack.”  Followed by an immediate cremation of the body.

Naww, they wouldn’t ever DARE do that. Why, it would be unprecemadented! On the other other hand, this ain’t encouraging:

Andrew McCabe hasn’t been indicted for allegedly lying to federal investigators, according to an email from his attorney asking prosecutors to drop the probe, a sign that the government’s case against the FBI’s former No. 2 official may be in jeopardy.

A federal grand jury met this week, according to people familiar with its deliberations. The days of closed-door drama without any sign of charges could indicate that prosecutors have encountered an unexpected snafu.

Yeah, I just bet they have at that.

Ever wonder how a once-great nation devolves into just another banana republic? Just like this, that’s how.

Rights to die for—or not

TL on one of the frequent subjects of my own musings and meanderings.

We are rapidly progressing toward the moment when each person will have to look deep into their heart and ask themselves whether they believe that there are principles worth giving their lives for, or not. Time will not stop and let us catch up or peek into the future to see if what we sacrifice will be worth it, or not. If we will stop anything or not.

I suggest that there are certain, key principles embedded in the Bill of Rights which are worth the ultimate sacrifice, not for us, but for our posterity. There are some hard lines that need to be drawn and I say this knowing that those lines are already being tested and that the time to act is bearing down on us. It could be tomorrow.

We are going to witness their attempts to do two things: take our guns and take our property. It is at this point that we either prove once and for all that those things are worth defending, or we will become willing victims of communism, globalism and enslavement. If that is a condition of existence that is better than death, it will be the condition upon which we live out our meager lives.

If we do accept it, we will destroy the world. Lost in the narrative that America is the source of all evil and injustice, is the fact that its economic power is derived directly from these concepts of individual rights defended by individuals with weapons equal to those of standing armies. Once removed, so is the economic engine that the whole world depends on. China would be nowhere near the economic power that it has become without being able to hijack the innovation and creativity of individuals seeking to gain individual wealth. Without the idea of making a better life, when that possibility has been made impossible, so is the energy to innovate and create. All of those entrepreneurs become mere workers, broken by the system, struggling to survive, denied the freedom to think, without the inspiration to innovate.

It truly is a choice between fighting to defend these fundamental rights as a part of America, but more importantly, as an ingredient of prosperity or the acceptance of a dark and dismal world of drudgery and enslavement, slowly grinding through the diminishing reserves of a capitalist past. If we choose that dark future, we will endure five or maybe ten years, before the whole world is Venezuela.

For them, that’s a feature and not a bug.

Viva Cruz

When he’s right, he’s right.

Sen. Ted Cruz is warning that President Donald Trump making a deal with Democrats on gun legislation might cause conservative voters to stay home in 2020.

“If Republicans abandon the Second Amendment and demoralize millions of Americans who care deeply about Second Amendment rights,” the Texas Republican said, “that could go a long way to electing a President Elizabeth Warren.”

“We’re going to see record-setting Democratic turnout. The only element missing is demoralizing conservatives so they stay home. I hope we don’t do that,” Cruz told reporters at a Thursday breakfast.

He was responding to a question that specifically referenced a possible deal between the Trump administration and a bipartisan group of senators including Democrats Christopher S. Murphy of Connecticut and Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, as well as Republican Patrick J. Toomey of Pennsylvania.

Rule Numero Uno: no deals with Democrat-Socialists—NONE of them, not EVER. Most especially on guns. As I said last night, they’re liars, not to be trusted as far as you could throw a flaming busload of the rotten bastards. If Trump doesn’t know this—and I very much doubt he doesn’t; he’s proven again and again that he just ain’t that stupid—then playing footsie with them on the 2A will prove to be a most painful way of learning the lesson. Ted’s political instincts are ringing all the right alarm bells on this one, and Trump would be wise to pay closest attention to the warning.

How can we miss you if you won’t go away?

Such a nasty woman.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sat at a replica Resolute Desk to read her old emails for an hour as part of an Italian art exhibit.

Clinton traveled to the Venetian Teatro Italia in Venice on Tuesday to become a part of the exhibit created by artist Kenneth Goldsmith. Titled “HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails,” the exhibit featured a mock Oval Office Resolute Desk with more than 60,000 pages of Clinton’s leaked emails printed, bound, and set out for anyone to leaf through.

“This exhibition is further proof that nothing wrong or controversial can be found on these emails. It makes them accessible to everyone and allows everyone to read them,” Clinton said in a statement. “They are just so boring.”

No word on whether Her Herness recited from memory any of the 30,000 emails (not “pages”) the old soak illegally deleted to cover her sickly, sodden ass.

Not my dog, not my fight

The Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly “the weather”) fight, that is.

As I wrote earlier this week, the Democratic Party is accomplishing what the Republican Party—conservatives in particular—failed to do for more than two decades: Exposing the general public to the radical, authoritarian, and wholly unrealistic agenda lurking behind the facade of the climate change movement.

The Green New Deal betrayed the climate crusade’s outlandish demands in its starkest, darkest terms yet, and a seven-hour climate change “town hall” on CNN this month featured Democratic presidential hopefuls promising everything from abortion and plastic straw bans to government-ordered veganism as solutions to halt supposed climate change. Democratic candidates promise to become more dystopian on this issue as they head into the heart of the 2020 campaign season.

So, presented with this gift, it is no time for Republicans and conservatives to take the boot off the throat of the collective climate propaganda machine.

Julie, Julie, Julie; you know I love ya, babe, I truly do. But you’re proceeding from a seriously mistaken assumption here: that Republicans/official “conservatives” were EVER anything but fully in league with the Left on this issue—and plenty of others, too. “Take the boot off”? When, pray tell, was it ever ON?

Yes, young people consider protecting the environment an urgent matter. But as Steven Pinker carefully detailed in his book, Enlightenment Now, by every measure, including the environment, conditions are far better now than in the past. Conservatives should tell a more uplifting tale about how American innovation has made the planet better, not worse.

Oh, I think they should be doing a good bit more than just that: they should be telling nothing but the plain truth, which is that the whole Climate Change (formerly Global Warming, formerly Global Cooling, formerly “the weather”) scam was never anything more than just that, a Lefty scam—cooked up from go for the dual but indivisible purposes of grabbing power and redistributing wealth. Nothing more, nothing less.

I concede, however, that this is a debate worth having. Buskirk appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program Tuesday night and Carlson enthusiastically agreed with Buskirk, as I assume plenty of people on the Right do as well.

But Americans finally are getting a close look at what a future controlled by climate freaks would really look like—and they are justifiably alarmed. In my view, conservatives should focus only on drawing attention to the Left’s plans while telling the truth about the safety, health, and clean future of the planet. We might not get this chance again.

America’s part of the planet—the only one we actually have any say over—is the cleanest it’s been since the Industrial Revolution. Let the Third World, huge swathes of Asia, and others clean up after themselves. And let our own phonus-balonus Lefty Chicken Littles go take themselves a nice flying fuck at a plate-glass window. There’s no reason whatsoever to concede a single premise to them, nor grant them the unearned courtesy of pretending to take them seriously for one moment, and every reason not to.

The will of the West

Okay, enough with the sour sarcasm. Time to be serious, and Steyn is just the guy for it.

The eighteenth anniversary of 9/11 was marked by the Administration inviting the Taliban to Camp David, and by the resignation and/or firingof John Bolton as National Security Advisor – which two events may not be unconnected. Because really, when the Taliban are running around Camp David, who needs national security?

For the fifteen years after the launch of SteynOnline in 2002, we re-posted every year on this date material of mine from September 11th 2001 and the days we followed. Two years ago, we ceased that policy, for reasons I discussed on Clubland Q&A:

If this is a war, there’s no agreement on what we’re up against: Terrorism? Islamic terrorism? Islamic extremism? Islam? Whatever it is, a president who, on the campaign trail, mocked his predecessor’s inability to use the words “radical Islam” himself eschewed all mention of the I-word today. September 11th 2001 was supposedly “the day everything changed” – if by “everything changed” you mean “the rate of mass Muslim immigration to the west doubled”. As that absurd statistic suggests, we are not where I thought we would be 16 years on: We run around fighting for worthless bits of barren sod like Helmand province in Afghanistan, while surrendering day by day some of the most valuable real estate on the planet, such as France and Sweden.

That last point may seem obvious. But, if it is, it’s a truth all but entirely unacknowledged by anyone who matters in the western world. I subsequently expanded on it, in a piece we called “The Language of Losing” and which appears to have been succeeded by “The Actions of Losers” – such as inviting the Taliban to Camp David. Hey, why not for the ceremonies in Lower Manhattan? On yet another wretched anniversary I mourn not only the dead of that grim day, but our loss of purpose. All that has changed two years on is that for “sixteenth anniversary” we substitute “eighteenth” – and on and on into the future:

Mark then reruns a two-year-oldie but goodie, which I will now brazenly excerpt to within an inch of its life:

In any war, you have to be able to prioritize: You can’t win everything, so where would you rather win? Raqqa or Rotterdam? Kandahar or Cannes? Yet, whenever some guy goes Allahu Akbar on the streets of a western city, the telly pundits generally fall into one of two groups: The left say it’s no big deal, and the right say this is why we need more boots on the ground in Syria or Afghanistan. Yesterday President Trump said he was committed to ensuring that terrorists “never again have a safe haven to launch attacks against our country”.

By that he means “safe havens” in Afghanistan. But the reason the west’s enemies are able to pile up a continuous corpse count in Paris, Nice, Berlin, Brussels, London, Manchester, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Orlando, San Bernadino, Ottawa, Sydney, Barcelona, [Your Town Here] is because they have “safe havens” in France, Germany, Britain, Scandinavia, North America, etc. Which “safe havens” are likely to prove more consequential for the developed world in the years ahead?

In Afghanistan, we’re fighting for something not worth winning, and we’re losing. In Europe, Islam is fighting for something very much worth winning, and they’re advancing. And, according to all the official strategists in Washington and elsewhere, these two things are nothing to do with each other.

To be fair, a lot of the ever increasing restraints on free expression are self-imposed: newspapers decide that it would be “insensitive” to publish certain cartoons, publishers politely decline novels on certain themes, and in Minnesota (where I’ll be in a couple of weeks) white progressives agonize that remembering 9/11 is “Islamophobic”. Which is weird – because a space alien visiting the United States for Monday’s ceremonies would have been stunned to discover that Islam had anything to do with 9/11. As I mentioned yesterday, the President forbore to mention Islam at all: Instead, we were attacked by “horrible, horrible enemies” and “enemies like we’ve never seen before”. Well, we’ve seen a lot of them since, and they appear to have certain things in common – things that this President was once not shy about mentioning. Yet, insofar as Islam got a look in from officialdom, it was a passing reference in the speech of Defense Secretary “Mad Dog” Mattis:

Maniacs disguised in false religious garb thought by hurting us they could scare us that day.

Well, whoever they are, these “maniacs” can evidently scare grizzled hard men called “Mad Dog” into concluding that, when it comes to mentioning the I-word, discretion is the better part of valor. “False religious garb” means we’re back to the standard Euro-squish line that all this Allahu Akbar I’m-ready-for-my-virgins stuff is a “perversion” of the real Islam, which is a peaceful faith practiced by millions of people for whom self-detonation is an unwelcome distraction from traditional activities such as clitoridectomies, honor killings and throwing sodomites off tall buildings. Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but these “maniacs” are hijacking this “religious garb” in order to peddle a “false” vision of Islam. Foaming-canine-wise, Mad Dog sounds about as mad as, say, Theresa May. I take it that, even in today’s politically correct military, you can’t earn the epithet “Mad Dog” simply by handing out diversity awards to the Transgender Outreach Liaison Officer of the Month, and General Mattis served honorably and impressively in Afghanistan and Iraq. But, when it comes to strategic clarity, that may be the problem.

In Iraq, everyone’s Muslim – mainly because all the Christians got chased out on America’s watch. So it’s both reasonable and necessary to distinguish between Muslims – between the ones who want to kill you no matter what, and the ones who might be more flexible on that point. I sat in cafés in Rutba and Ramadi and got on well enough with the locals, but I confess I was more circumspect about the clitoridectomy shtick than I am above. Nevertheless, the distinctions one makes in the Sunni Triangle are not useful in the wider world. Old-school imperialists understood this. In 1939, Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Sanders (who was born in Abbotabad, where Osama bin Laden met his end) accepted an invitation to lunch from the Waziri tribesman who’d blown him up and cost him his right arm a week earlier – because, in Waziri terms, this particular tribesman was less worse than many of the others. That kind of unperturbable imperial élan would strike the contemporary world as slightly nutty. But what the Colonel would have found truly nutty is inviting thousands of that Waziri tribesman’s relatives to live in England.

You can’t connect what’s happening in Molenbeek, Malmö and the other “safe havens” of the west with the “safe havens” of the east if you think what’s going on is about random “maniacs” adopting “false religious garb”. And until we do make that connection we are doomed to lose.

Precisely so…and losing is exactly what we’ve been doing, and are going to go right on doing. Doubt me? Don’t.

Eighteen years after the September 11 jihad attacks that murdered nearly three thousand people, this is where we are: the Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church in Michigan has canceled an event called “9/11 forgotten? Is Michigan surrendering to Islam” under pressure from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group with ties to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. And so the answers are clear: yes, 9/11 has been forgotten, and Michigan is indeed surrendering to Islam.

Good God. What an embarrassment. What a disgrace. Somewhere, George Patton is spinning in his grave as if he were on a rotisserie connected to a small-block Chevy engine.

Update! Strong message follows. STRONG.

Because the murdering, semi-literate goat-humpers who perpetrated the act we remember are still out there.
We (you, me, Western civilization, etc.) haven’t delivered to them the Third Punic War level of recompense they richly deserve, because reasons. Mostly bullshit ones, at that.

It’s too much.
Hey, fuckwit, they wiped out international air travel for months, vaporized billions in the economy of every nation in the world, including the ones least able to absorb that, not just ours in the U.S., engendering a decade-plus series of wars and thousands to tens of thousands of casualties, that really hasn’t stopped since they started circa the 7th Century, and won’t until we end the problem, by ending the problem children.
Sorry if that unvarnished reality spoils your breakfast, but shit happens.

It’s mean.
Really, dipshit? Meaner than destroying the lives of thousands of strangers in the service of your child-molesting leader, and his fanatical devotion to an imaginary death-cult deity?
Meaner than setting buildings on fire, and subjecting thousands of strangers to slow torture by fire, smoke, and worst of all, the time to contemplate the full hopelessness of their situation, such that they’d rather, in hundreds of cases, try flying from the 80th floor of a skyscraper rather than burn to death, or wait to be crushed under hundreds of tons of smoking rubble, screaming all the way to the impact at the bottom?
Okay, you win. I hereby concede that justice demands that every fanatical follower of theirs, including their bomb-toting children, should only be lit on fire, and kicked out of an aircraft at altitude, to scream in unspeakable agony the entire way until impact. Call it Hammurabi 2.0.
Happy now?

That’s not who we are.
You got a mouse in your pocket, soy-boi?
Who we are is a disgrace. Who we should be, are the guys who nuked Mecca and Medina, same day, then slaughtered everything left after that, in a feat worthy of Genghis Khan, and then introduced endangered species to graze there in perpetuity, so as to have enough lions and crocodiles handy to feed any stragglers to for the next few centuries.

They aren’t all like the terrorists.
Really? That’s why the “moderates” cheer and hand out candy when the “fanatics” kill your fellow citizens? How many times will you have to be jihaded by “moderates” who experience Sudden Jihadi Syndrome™, in San Bernardino, or Ft. Hood, or Tennessee, or a hundred other places, before the penny finally drops for you? 
By their own doctrine, they’re either fanatics, or apostates. 
Moderate is a western invention, like unicorns and the Easter Bunny. 
You could look it up.

As the saying goes, the difference between the radical and moderate Muslim is: the radical Muslim wants to chop your head off. The moderate Muslim wants the radical Muslim to chop your head off. Unfortunately, there are a few benighted schlubs in the comments half-heartedly pimping the “our government did it!” 9/11 conspiracy theory, which has always been as lame and idiotic as conspiracy theories come. Looks like I’ma need to do another rerun post right away to deal with that happy horseshit.

HAPPY 9/11 DAY!

So whilst doing the kitchen prep work for throwing a mangled, charred human limb onto the barbie for my own 9/11 Day memorial celebration, I ran across this compelling article from one of the wire services:

ROOTERS—Congresspersons the Honorable Ilan Omar (D—Shitholistan), Ayanna Pressley (D—Hamas) and Rashida Tlee…uhhh, Tluuu…uhhh, Tlzzhgrjeb (D—Hezbollah) invited victorious Taliban chieftan Haibatullah Akhundzada to give a speech at New York City’s 9/11 Day memorial celebration this morning, the eighteenth anniversary of the day Some People Did Something and the World Trade Center buildings were toppled as a result.

According to the New York Times, the disaster took place after the buildings had been targeted by airplanes, for no apparent reason and without any discernible motivation:

The New York Times on Wednesday deleted a tweet marking the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that claimed “airplanes took aim” at the World Trade Center.

“18 years have passed since airplanes took aim and brought down the World Trade Center,” the original Times tweet read. “Today, families will once again gather and grieve at the site where more than 2000 people died.”

Twitter users were quick to point out that 19 Islamic terrorists, not airplanes, were responsible for the attacks and that nearly 3,000 people, or 2,996 specifically, were killed.

The Times later said it had deleted the tweet for the sake of “clarity.”

The event was also attended by a handful of maimed and crippled Afghanistan “war” veterans along with 9/11 first responders who have been abandoned by their government, all of whom shook their heads bitterly and clenched their fists in white-knuckled rage as Mr Akhundzada led the rest of the enthusiastic crowd in chants of “Allah Akhbar,” “Death To America,” and “You like apples, American dogs? Well, how you like THEM apples?”

After Mr Akhundzada’s rousing presentation, the Right Honorable Congresswoman Omar took the podium to condemn the wanton murder of Osama bin Laden (alleged “perpetrator” of the 9/11 “attacks,” according to the absurd theories promoted by conspiracy-mongering loons) in Pock-Eee-Stawn years afterwards, demanding the people behind his vicious, unwarranted slaughter be brought to justice until an aide whispered in her ear that the killing of bin Laden actually occurred during Barrack Hussein Obama’s “presidency”—and was ordered, albeit reluctantly, by Obama himself. After being reminded of this embarrassing fact, Omar stepped back to the microphone and quietly murmured “Never mind.”

At this point, the Afghan “war” vets spat on the ground and stalked away in disgust; one of the bloodthirsty ex-killers was heard to grumble, “Fuck this shit, fellas, we are outta here” as he helped to roll the wheelchair-bound NYPD and NYFD 9/11 survivors to the nearest exit. Thankfully, the crippled former soldiers were set upon by a throng of several hundred AntiFa patriots and beaten into blood-soaked unconsciousness before they could leave the scene.

In the traditional closing of the annual memorial celebration, the names of the several hundred or what the hell ever people killed in the “attacks” were read off one by one as the theme from the Benny Hill Show (“Yakkety Sax,” by Boots Randolph) was played in the background over huge loudspeakers.

Never forgive? Never forget? Riiiiight.

Update! Yeah, you could say I’m a little bitter myself.

18 years later, are we safer? Have we defeated Radical Islamic terrorism and those who sympathize with them, encourage them, fund them and cover up for them?

“Defeated” them? We aren’t even allowed to name them as the enemy. Fer cripe’s sake, even the phrase “Radical Islamic terrorism” is itself nothing but a weasel-word dodge, nothing but a way to evade the hard truths we lack the stones to confront about Islam and its eternal conflict with civilization and modernity. More on that coming in the next post.

The short answer is NO.

Not only no, but we now have two terror sympathizers serving in the U.S. Congress as elected officials, using their position to normalize and even stand up for terror-linked people and organizations.

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, as recently as few weeks ago, August 25th, tweeted her support for a chief financier of Al-Shabaab, the U.S.-designated Somali terror group is responsible for carrying out the deadliest terror attack in Somalia’s history where almost 600 people were killed just 2 years ago.

In November of 2016 Representative Omar wrote a personal letter appealing for “Compassion” and “leniency” for 9 Minnesota Somali men charged with planning on joining ISIS.

No less than 42 members of the Minnesota Somali community have left the U.S. to fight overseas with the terror organization Al-Shabaab.

But it doesn’t stop with Ilhan Omar.

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, the Hamas sympathizer, doesn’t even try to hide or camouflage her loyalty to the terror group and their supporters. She proudly declared after her primary win “I want to be a voice to the Palestinian People.”

After her swearing-in ceremony in her home district, Tlaib proudly socialized at a private dinner celebration with Abbas Hamideh, a supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, both designated terror groups by the U.S. government. Unfortunately, he wasn’t the only one. Tlaib’s dinner celebration was filled with anti-Semitic terror sympathizers including Jbara Mwafaq, an infamous supporter of Hezbollah, and Ahlam Jbara, an anti-Semitic member of the UAE terror group, CAIR.

All of this without even mentioning the fact that these congresswomen have and continue to receive immense support from a “laundry list” of organizations that are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood or are unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation Trial (the largest terror-financing trial in U.S. history). The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) are just a few prime examples that come to mind.

Who would have thought that 18 years after 9/11 we will have terror sympathizers serving in the U.S. Congress celebrated as heroes and trailblazers by the mainstream media and pop culture?

Sickening as it is, I only wish I could say I was surprised by it.

Fed up, fighting back

How it’s fucking DONE, people.

Vegans Storm Spanish Rabbit Farm, Surprised When Farmers Fight Back
Videos of the activists show them covered in blood and their car windows smashed in.

And just like that, you know already this is going to be the feel-good story of the year.

Vegan activists stormed a Spanish rabbit farm this weekend, and were surprised when the farmers fought back when they attempted to steal their property.

A video posted to Twitter shows a British vegan activist with her face covered in blood, who goes on to detail why they are in such a state.

On the description of the original Instagram post, Mythical.Mia details what happened when they attempted to “rescue” 16 rabbits from the farm:

The farmer was extremely aggressive and attacked us, strangling activists and smashing their heads with metal poles. The police came and told us to leave peacefully, which we did. After we left the farmers chased us down the motorway at 200km for an hour. We tried to lose them down a side road but they were on our tails. They blocked us into a dead end and surround the car with 5 other farmers’ cars. They were banging on the windows, shouting and threatening us. We called the police who arrived after an hour. They diffused the situation and escorted us to a ‘safe place’. We asked them to escort us home but they refused and said we would be okay. They let us go and 10 minutes later back on the motorway one of their call pulled up alongside us and shot at us. The window exploded in my face and there was a lot of blood from all the glass. We’re currently at the hospital and waiting to go to the police station to report this crime.

I hold out little serious expectation of it, but I do hope the boys down at the cop-shop laughed their asses silly before tossing you out on yours, bint. Along with a hilarious photo of said whiny bint’s blood-spattered mug that’s guaranteed to inspire a frisson of sheer delight in sane sorts, there’s more good news from other places also:

A group of vegans in Argentina were also whipped and humiliated by cowboys, after they attempted to disrupt a rodeo event. A vegan woman in Australia also made headlines after she sued her neighbours for barbecuing.

I seem to recall reading another story the other day on that last brouhaha that mentioned the neighbors’ response to the wretched, whey-faced Aussie twat and her nuisance lawsuit: throwing a huge BBQ bash that wound up hosting over a thousand attendees. I ain’t gonna go pawing through the browser history to find it right now, but I desperately hope it’s true. They ought to hold one each and every damned Saturday henceforth, until the already-enfeebled vegan either busts a blood vessel and dies from sheer spastic rage, or moves the hell away to pester some other poor soul.

The moral of the story: the sole reason we now suffer these ever-more-outrageous encroachments on our rights, our liberty, and our very lives from such obnoxious idiots is that, for far too long, they’ve been allowed to get away with it unscathed—the most important and telling word in the above headline is, after all, “SURPRISED.” I just bet they were, and why wouldn’t they be? They’ve never had any of their own shit splashed back on them, by anybody. Not in many, many a year, they haven’t. Our indulgence has only unleashed their demonic insanity.

Plus, being Leftists, they simply cannot stop themselves from using each unanswered infringement as a springboard for the next—an eternal escalation which is written into Progtard DNA the world over. They cannot and will not be content until every dissenting voice is silenced, every dissenting opinion suppressed, and every dissident cowed, controlled, crushed. Maybe not even then, in truth.

All of which means that until we start seeing a lot more Lefty heads smashed with metal poles, strangled activists, and Leftists in high-speed car chases fleeing for their lives in leg-wetting terror, what we’re going to keep seeing instead is more and worse nonsense from them. None of us are happy about this sorry state of affairs, nor should we be. Being non-Leftists, all any of us Normals really want is to simply be left alone. But this is the corner they’ve forced us into just the same, and we’re never, ever going to be allowed out of it. That corner is going to get smaller and smaller, drawing in on us all with every successive Leftard win, until there’s no ground left for us to stand on at all. If we want out, we’re going to have to fight our way out.

So be it, then. Those stout Spanish farmers, Argie cowboys, and Aussie BBQers have shown us the way. It’s a pretty safe bet that the next larcenous “protest” held by pushy vegan “activists” will be a lot sparser attendance-wise; I expect the female Limey contingent in particular will find themselves with something a lot more pressing to do on that date next go-round. The farmers’, cowboys’, and BBQ fans’ sterling example ought to be followed to the letter hereabouts, lest we soon find ourselves in a much worse fix than we already are—with a much longer, harder, and more desperate fight to get out of it on our hands.

I hereby personally condemn whoever he or she might turn out to be

Oh, the courage of this courageously courageous woman! She’s a real hero all right, bless her honest heart. Her, and the forty or fifty other sad sacks and head cases the Demonrats no doubt already have lined up and fully briefed on their heartrending stories, ready to trot out for the usual confirmation shitshow.

This is incredibly difficult for me to do but I feel that it’s necessary to come forward and expose the type of person that Trump will select for the Supreme Court of the great country.

I was raped by whoever Trump selects to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg for the Supreme Court.

It was in the 1990s and the details are a little fuzzy. We were at a party and I distinctly remember this person coming on to me and rubbing up against me.

I told this person I wasn’t interested but whoever it was persisted and when we were alone forced himself or herself on me, pulling off my clothes and penetrating me while I constantly said, “No!”

I haven’t come forward yet because I was ashamed and afraid. This person is clearly very powerful, but now that this person is being considered for the Supreme Court, I think it’s necessary to let people know who they’re dealing with, especially after Trump picked a literal serial killer last time.

And the Soros money doesn’t hurt.

No, it never does, does it? Via Glenn, who also professes himself mightily impressed with the bravery of this paragon of integrity and virtue.

Space Lawd, mutha mutha

I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords.

If you look up at the moon tonight, understand that you are not looking at a primordial rock that has orbited above our heads, rearing its pale, pockmarked face every night, since the dawn of humanity. Instead, you are looking at a treasure trove of natural resources. As you stare up at the pale, dimpled, and ancient face of Earth’s only natural satellite, understand that there is a Chinese rover roaming the previously-unexplored dark side (the part that permanently faces away from Earth) of the lunar surface, testing the soil to determine whether or not China might be able to strip mine the moon. Should Beijing conclude that the moon is home to a bevy of abundant, untapped natural resources, then China’s space program will return to the moon, and exploitthose natural resources for China’s benefit before anyone else can.

Well, heck, maybe NASA can hitch a lift with them sometime instead of piggybacking on Russia.

In fact, as you will see throughout this piece, China’s space ambitions are expansive, compelling, and a direct (and enduring) threat to the United States. For, it is not only in the area of space mining that China envisions becoming the dominant player. China also seeks to acquire true military parity with the United States in orbit of Earth; by building the capability to damage or destroy vulnerable American satellites and by potentially placing weapon systems—disguised as civilian systems—in orbit.

Ahh, but the ChiComs are not hindered by the America’s two most crippling handicaps: 1) hordes of Progtard anklebiters whining and bitching incessantly about all those things, and 2) the will to steamroller right over them anyway—perhaps literally. China may indeed have such anklebiters, but said anklebiters know the consequences for them should they fail to keep their traps screwed tightly shut.

The Chinese view space quite differently from their American rivals. China’s space vision is a cold, clear-eyed, nationalist mission for space exploration and, inevitably, exploitation. As I’ve written recently, the Chinese leadership cares “little for the betterment of humanity.” They do not go into space possessed of the same airy, globalist notions that so many American policymakers have been imbued with. What’s more, the Chinese have a far more realistic—even cynical—view of space than most American leaders do. Theirs is a belief that nationalism will empower China’s rise in the strategic domain of space. And, once ensconced as the dominant force in the strategic high ground of space, the Chinese will be able to have control over the other terrestrial strategic domains of space (land, sea, air, and cyberspace).

The Chinese leadership fundamentally believes that space is an unpossessed resource waiting to be conquered by the nation (or group of nations) that have the gumption to take it before other states can. The cynicism of Chinese leaders when it comes to space is in their belief that China must do everything it can—including weaponizing space—to prevent China’s rivals (read, the United States) from denying space to them.

And they are correct to the Nth detail of that, too. Which is why, unless the US somehow pulls it head out of its ass, the Chinese are going to leave us bleating and choking in their dust. Historically, strength and will tend to conquer weakness and enervation every single time.

But that ain’t why I posted on this. The excuse it provided to insert this little musical interlude is.

Hold onto your hats

Better sit down for this one, folks. It’s bound to come as a profound shock, but…the NYT’s “1619 Project,” wherein they intend to tie absolutely everything under the sun to American slavery, is based entirely on lies.

I know, I know. You coulda knocked me over with a feather too.

A Cornell University scholar cited in a recent New York Times piece tying slavery to capitalism was previously found to have inflated statistics, invented facts, and altered quotes, according to fellow academics in his field.

In an October 2016 paper, scholars Alan Olmstead of the University of California Davis and Paul Rhode of the University of Michigan harshly criticized the research of Cornell’s Edward Baptist presented in Baptist’s 2014 book “The Half Has Never Been Told.” In the book, Baptist argues that modern capitalism still contains many of the remnants of slavery and America’s current economy is still influenced by the exploitation of slaves.

“What bothered me was when Ed Baptist dropped out of public debates about his work (methods and findings),” Rhode said.

Because of course he did. I mean, isn’t that what they all do? Loathsome climate -pseudoscience fraudster Michael Mann jumps immediately to mind as Exhibit A, but there are others.

Yet Baptist was quoted approvingly by Princeton Professor Matthew Desmond in a recent essay for the New York Times’ “1619” project, which is intended to reframe the nation’s history around the narrative of slavery. Desmond’s piece states that in “order to understand the brutality of American capitalism, you have to start on the plantation,” and he then quotes Baptist saying that before the Civil War, Americans “lived in an economy whose bottom gear was torture.”

Baptist has also been cited by influential opinion journalists such as Ta-Nehisi Coates, who recently used the scholar’s figures to argue in favor of reparations for African-Americans.

Because of course he did. Chapter and verse follows, and then this:

Baptist did not respond to a request from The College Fix to comment.

Because of course he didn’t. He’s a liar, and since his lies are indefensible—his spurious contentions propped up entirely on a flimsy foundation of fraud, chicanery, sub rosa jiggery-pokery, and pure balls-out deceit—he doesn’t intend to be caught dead defending them.

The interesting thing is to see whether the NYT prefers to brazen this out and keep their despicable project going, or whether they decide to evade accountability by letting the whole thing quietly die the death and hope nobody notices. Which way they jump will reveal a lot about them, not that we don’t already know it full well anyway.

What is, and what will be

The rot is too deep to be easily excised.

When there has been an attempted coup and no one has gone to jail, much less executed for treason, the political will is not there to confront the truth or defend the republic.

The gutless Republicans have ceded the rule of law as far back as the Clinton Administration.

There are communists in the government openly and actively promoting revolution, protecting violent groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter as their soldiers and modern brown shirts.

These same communists encourage the myth of America “stealing” parts of Mexico to embolden Latinos, especially illegal aliens, toward the idea of reconquest. Why? It still achieves the communist goal of destruction of the current system.

The fluctuating gender issues do the same thing for the same reasons, to attack the ability to communicate with Americans who hold a traditional view of genders. It is intended to drive a wedge between families and institutions of religion.

Environmentalism is being used by the communists to encourage the younger generation to acquiesce to the concept of genocide, or more politely, population reduction, as a means of saving the planet, despite the fact that the planet is proven not to be in danger.

All of the things that give this society strength are under assault and for the same reasons, to destroy what is and make room for what will be. Nothing else. The communists need chaos. They have created and used chaos in every society before they took over. It is how it is done.

There are Chinese in Hong Kong flying the American flag and singing the national anthem in opposition to the tyranny of China, thinking that we still mean what we say about liberty and freedom. There are groups in India who recognize the tyranny of their leaders and protest against it. They struggle against the same tactics that we face here in America, the corruption of the news media, accusations of intolerance and a pending economic hardship that is the most effective means of creating chaos.

Do you think it is just happening here?

Of course not. They don’t call it world socialism for nothing, you know. And at the risk of sounding like a broken record: none of this is either accident, happenstance, or coincidence. Our statist/collectivist/authoritarian enemies are working a very old plan, and they’ve been quietly winning the war for at least 60 years, if not far longer.

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Dirty Harry Reid thinks you should be Alarmed.

Time is running out to act on climate change

And it always is. And it always will be.

Today, the Nevada deserts — along with environments throughout the country and the world — are facing threats much greater than bulldozers, shovels and unscrupulous mining operations. That threat is climate change.

There’s no denying the disastrous effects climate change is having on every corner of Nevada, our country and our planet. Even the beautiful Joshua Tree forest 5 miles from my Searchlight home is in distress. In the last few years alone, we’ve seen record wildfires in the West, multiple 100-year floods and a drought that left Lake Mead 4 feet away from a federal water shortage.

OH NOES!!! A “federal water shortage?” Heaven help us. Not sure what exactly a “federal water shortage” might actually amount to, mind. But it’s bound to be horrible, and will surely kill us all.

I won’t be around to see the worst impacts of climate change, but my children, grandchildren and countless families around the world will be. They’ll suffer the brunt of this crisis. They’ll bear the burden of cleaning up my generation’s mess.

Aw gee, you won’t? So somehow we’ve gone from AlGore’s “only ten years left” “planetary emergency” alarum back in 2006, to AOC’s “only 12 years left” revision, to..what, three or four weeks, maybe? Actually, Democrat-Socialist knucklehead Andrew Yang insists that it’s “already too late,” and that we should all head for the hills already. Literally. Hey, give the guy props for having balls enough To Boldly Go where no lunatic has gone before, I guess.

Meh. I won’t bother with any more of Reid’s silly-assed twaddle; I mean, what’s the point, really? I just wanted to bask in the idea that he doesn’t expect to be around much longer for a bit here, and enjoy the delicious frisson of anticipation it brought me.

Sticks and stones

Great little slice of outrage from John Nolte.

The Joke Police are looking to strip Dave Chappelle of his speech rights, which once again proves we are coming to a decision point in this country. That’s what this whole godforsaken Woke Crusade boils down to — a choice, and the choice is this: Are we going to allow ourselves to become second class citizens in our own country? Are we going to allow far-left activists and their allies in the media, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood to bully us into creating a two-tiered class system?

And this is a decision we are all going to have to make. It ‘s not enough for comedian Dave Chappelle to say I’m not going to sit in the back of the satire bus, and it’s not enough for me to say it. As a country we have to decide if we’re going to cave to the Woke Gestapo, allow them to restrict our speech, and to create an America where some people can be criticized and satirized, and others cannot.

Free speech, at least to me, is a very simple concept… In a great country, in a country that is truly free, you and I and everyone else gets a say. Most importantly, we get a say without fear of social sanctions. No one tries to boycott, blacklist, cancel, de-platform, or Scarlet Letter us; no one tries to force us from our homes, schools, or jobs.

You have a God-given right to be a hateful asshole in this country. Better still, you get to be a hateful asshole who owns a gun!

I reviewed Sticks & Stones here, so I won’t go over that ground again and I’m not here to “debunk” those critical of Chappelle’s performance for reasons of taste. My issue is with those in the Woke Stasi telling Chappelle to shut up and doing so with lies on top of emotional blackmail on top of lies on top of threats on top of lies…

This nonsense needs to be hit head on, and let’s start with the biggest and most shameless lie of them all…

1. Punching Down at the Poor, Pitiful, Powerless LGBT Crowd

This from a far-left BuzzFeed “reporter” is just one example of many:

What is especially frustrating about Chappelle’s trans jokes is how he essentially acts as if black trans people don’t exist, and as if black trans women in particular aren’t more likely to be victims of violence. His truth-to-power comedy only works if he acts as though trans people and black people are wholly separate entities.

So what’s really to be gained from punching down on the most vulnerable?

“The most vulnerable?”

What a pile of shit.

There is no group with more power right now than the LGBT crowd, those Chappelle refers to as “the alphabet people.”

It goes on at length from there, featuring an embed of one of the great George Carlin’s riffs on forbidden speech that includes this bit:

Like rape. You can’t make jokes about rape, rape’s not funny. I say, FUCK YOU, I THINK IT’S HILARIOUS! How d’ya like that, huh? I can prove to you rape is funny. Picture Porky Pig, raping Elmer Fudd. See? Hey, why do you think they call him Porky? I know what you’re gonna say: Elmer was asking for it. Elmer was coming on to Porky.

I think you can joke about anything. It all depends on how you construct the joke.

Trouble is, the grim, humorless Left believes that jokes should be banned entirely, since by nature every joke is made at the expense of somebody.

The chicanery, farce, and falsehood of Amerikan “justice”

People died. Barr lied.

After Randy Weaver, an outspoken white separatist living on a mountaintop in northern Idaho, was entrapped by an undercover federal agent, U.S. marshals trespassed on Weaver’s land and killed his 14-year-old son, Sammy. The following day, FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi killed his wife, Vicki, as she was standing in the cabin doorway. Horiuchi had previously shot Randy Weaver in the back after he stepped out of the cabin. The suspects were never given a warning or a chance to surrender and had taken no action against FBI agents. Weaver survived.

After an Idaho jury found Weaver not guilty on almost all charges, federal judge Edward Lodge slammed the Justice Department and FBI for concealing evidence and showing “a callous disregard for the rights of the defendants and the interests of justice.” A Justice Department internal investigation compiled a 542-page reportdetailing federal misconduct and coverups in the case and suggested criminal charges against FBI officials involved in Ruby Ridge.

Barr told the New York Times in 1993 that he was not directly involved in the Ruby Ridge operation. Two years later, the Washington Post revealed that “top officials of the Bush Justice Department had at least 20 [phone] contacts concerning Ruby Ridge in the 24 hours before Vicki Weaver was shot,” including two calls involving Barr.
 
In January 1995, FBI director Louis Freeh announced wrist slaps for the FBI officials involved, including his friend Larry Potts, who supervised the operation from headquarters and who approved the shoot-without-provocation orders that “contravened the constitution of the United States,” according to the Justice Department internal report. When Attorney General Janet Reno later nominated Potts for deputy director of the FBI, top newspapers and members of Congress protested but Barr told the New York Times that his friend Potts “was deliberate and careful, and I developed a great deal of confidence in his judgment… I can’t think of enough good things to say about him.”  A few months later, the FBI suspended Potts after suspected perjury regarding Ruby Ridge. (Potts was not charged and retired two years later.)

The Justice Department paid $3 million to settle a wrongful death lawsuit from the Weaver family. But when Boundary County, Idaho filed criminal charges against Horiuchi, Barr sprang to action seeking immunity for FBI snipers. He spearheaded efforts to sway the court to dismiss all charges because holding a sniper liable would “severely undermine, if not cripple, the ability of future attorneys general to rely on such specialized units in moments of crisis such as hostage taking and terrorist acts.”

One quibble: I met Randy Weaver at a Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot one year, and spent about an hour hanging out and casually conversing with him. At NO point did he strike me as an “outspoken white separatist”; white separatist he may have been, which is not a crime (yet). But he wasn’t an “outspoken” anything at all. He was instead very quiet and humble—almost diffident, really. The one thing that stood out most about him was how deeply he was still haunted by FBI scumwad Horiuchi’s wanton, vicious murder of his entire family. Weaver’s grief over their execution by federal death-squad was still as raw and agonizing as if it had been fresh, several years after his own despotic government inflicted it on him.

I hadn’t known of Barr’s sordid history before, but it does clearly establish one thing: the very idea of him ever ensuring justice against Deep State coup d’état plotters is no better than wholly ludicrous. That Barr would defend such an outrage against all decency and humanity as the FUSA government’s murder of unarmed and innocent civilians at Ruby Ridge—a youth shot in the back as he fled the monstrous agents of a monstrous tyranny; his dog killed for no purpose other than to terrorize him; his mother sniped from hiding as she committed the heinous crime of standing in the doorway of her own home with her infant child in her arms—puts paid to that nonsense.

FBI hitman Lon Horiuchi retired in 2006, with honors and the thanks of a grateful nation for his “service,” and went to work for gun-parts manufacturer HS Precision as their “FBI Program Manager,” prompting this bitterly humorous spoof ad from outraged 2A supporters:

hs-precision-2.jpg


Like Lois Lerner and all other villainous Deep State scoundrels, Horiuchi will live out the rest of his days in peace, comfort, and security bought for him by taxpayer dollars. Justice? Ain’t no such thing in Amerika.

Update! Go ahead and hold your breath.

So far, the I.G. is batting zero on justice. The I.G. report on Hillary Clinton’s email investigation showed pervasive bias for Hillary, talk of an insurance policyshould she lose, that Hillary should win “100 million to 0.” Yet in the end, Horowitz pulled a Comey, said the investigators’ hatred for Donald Trump, their loyalty to Hillary Clinton, didn’t impact their findings in any way. Huh?

But the attempted coup has been exposed, and one by one, the Deep State cronies are going down: James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Bill Priestap, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Jim Baker, Andrew McCabe, to name a few who have retired, been fired, or been demoted.

So our message to any future insurgents who stage a coup but fail in their efforts to illegally remove a sitting president and overthrow the United States government is, “Be forewarned: treason could cost you your job.” Oh, the humanity!

Well, at least former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe is paying a high price for lying and leaking. He collected over a half-million dollars on his GoFundMe site, ostensibly for his legal defense.  He’ll still get his government pension, has filed suit against the FBI and DOJ for firing him, wrote the ubiquitous politicalbook trashing Trump, and has now landed a consultant gig with CNN. By damn, that’ll teach him.

Sean Hannity tells us every night that Spygate will explode with declassification, with the I.G. report, or with Durham’s investigation. Sean’s Fox team of experts agree: the traitors are shaking in their boots because they know what’s coming. 

Really? Because I don’t see a single traitor twitching, much less shaking. In fact, they’ve stepped up their sedition, increased their efforts to usurp the president. If they’re scared, they’re doing a bang-up job of hiding it.

Today, treason and our two-tier justice system are casually discussed as inescapable facts of today’s political landscape. Heads up for those desperately trying to put the blindfold back on Lady Justice. If a layered legal system is what we have, it has nothing to do with justice — that’s anarchy.

No, it’s tyranny, actually.

Take for example when Hillary Clinton literally laughed out loud at a question about her email investigation — had to wipe her eyes, she laughed so hard. She laughed at us, at America, for being so clueless as to think she’d ever answer to our laws.
 
And she’s still laughing, because she’s right: she’s untouchable. The consensus is that even though we know that the first email investigation was rigged by the FBI to clear Hillary, no one will reopen the case.

“While she [Hillary] may never face justice in a court of law, perhaps losing the presidency is a more prescient and proper punishment.”

Well, of course, losing a presidential election is far more devastating than wasting away in a prison cell.

She has every right to laugh at us, because she was right, and was all along.

Forget it, Jake, it’s liberals

Some useful historical perspective: the FBI was always corrupt, Democrat-Socialist politicians have always found this corruption useful for election-tampering, and Enemedia has always been complicit in the undermining the right of non-liberal Americans to have a say in their own governance.

More specifically: the earth-shattering Watergate mega-scandal was pretty small potatoes, and the self-proclaimed Heroes Who Saved The Republic…weren’t.

I look back now and the whole thing seems a sham, a self-congratulatory illusion created by leftists in both the news media and in Hollywood.

Recently, reading Mark Levin’s “Unfreedom of the Press”, I was reminded that, before reporters went on their great crusade against Richard Nixon, they had overlooked a whole lot of corruption in the Democrat presidents who preceded him.

Levin tells how John F. Kennedy, with the knowledge of his brother and Attorney General Robert, nudged the IRS into auditing conservative groups. With Kennedy’s approval, the FBI was also employed to investigate those the administration disliked, including Martin Luther King Jr. Lyndon Baines Johnson would later increase the politically motivated auditing and spying. None of this was uncovered until later on.

Ben Bradlee — the editor of the Washington Post, where Woodward and Bernstein broke the Watergate story — was well aware of his pal Kennedy’s misuse of the tax and investigative agencies. Not only did he not report it, he allowed himself and his paper to be manipulated by information JFK had wrongly obtained.

This totally changes the Watergate narrative. Nixon’s dirty tricks and enemy lists may have been creepy and wrong, but the press exposure of these misdemeanors came after years of ignoring similar and worse malfeasance by Democrat administrations.

That changes what Watergate means. That transforms it from a heroic crusade into a political hit job, Democrat hackery masquerading as nobility. The press turned a blind eye to the corruption of JFK and LBJ, then raced to overturn the election of a man they despised — despised in part because he battled the Communism many of them had espoused.

Like the Nixon takedown, the attacks on Trump come after years of turning a blind eye to the corruption of a Democrat. Obama’s IRS campaign against the Tea Party? His lies about Benghazi? His Fast and Furious fiasco? His shutdown of a massive drug investigation to appease Iran? No big deal. Obama was, as almost every mainstream outlet has declared, “scandal free.”

The crawly thing Obama was le chevalier sans peur et sans reproche, see. Meanwhile, Trump is Literally Hitler, which justifies using any means whatsoever to nullify the results of the 2016 election—or, to the Left’s way of thinking, “correct” them.

So what else is new? Nothing under the sun, as the saying goes.

Pack ’em up, move ’em out, bring ’em home

End this war.

Lindsey Graham Is Wrong: It’s Long Past Time to Get Out of Afghanistan
The occasionally courageous and insightful Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) predicted Tuesday that if President Trump withdraws American troops from Afghanistan, “there will be another 9/11.” Sounding as tough as he ever does, Graham warned: “You may be tired of fighting radical Islam, but they’re not tired of fighting you.” But that’s not what getting out of Afghanistan would mean. If leaving American troops in Afghanistan until the end of time is the only way we can fight the global jihad, we’re done for.

Graham is ignoring the fact that we’re not really fighting “radical Islam” in Afghanistan as it is, and another 9/11 could happen while we are there. 

The fool’s errand in Afghanistan has no goal, no endpoint, no definition of victory. It should have been ended years ago and should be ended now. What are we fighting for at this point, anyway? The Taliban are never going to surrender. American forces have supervised the implementation of an Afghan constitution that enshrined Islamic law as the highest law of the land. Yet Islamic law is nothing like the democratic principles that we went into Afghanistan to defend (over here) and establish (over there). Sharia institutionalizes the oppression of women and non-Muslims, extinguishes the freedom of speech, and denies the freedom of conscience.

Was that what we were fighting for?

Nonetheless, America continued to pour out her blood and treasure for this repressive state, with no clear objective or mission in view other than a never-defined “victory.” No one has defined what victory would look like in Afghanistan. What could it possibly look like? Has the Ghani regime ever allowed women to throw off their burqas and take their place in Afghan society as human beings equal in dignity to men? Does the Ghani government, or any Afghan government that would follow it, ever intend to guarantee basic human rights to the tiny and ever-dwindling number of non-Muslims unfortunate enough to live within its borders? Of course not.

And no matter how long American troops stay in Afghanistan, no Afghan regime is ever going to do such things.

The real problem, as Spencer somewhat obliquely states, is our refusal to admit that no Muslim regime is ever going to do such things. There can never be any meaningful “victory,” in Afghanistan or anywhere else, until we get over our cowardly squeamishness and face the facts: in the phrase “Islamic terrorism”—whether you choose to water it down with the evasive “radical” or not—it’s the “Islamic” part that matters most.

Yeah, about those “declassified” documents and all.

Entrenched officials in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) are refusing to declassify key documents related to the Trump-Russia affair more than three months after President Trump granted his attorney general the power to declassify the documents, Paul Sperry of RealClearInvestigations reported on Wednesday.

The office is in limbo in the wake of the resignations last month of its director, Dan Coats, and principal deputy, Sue Gordon, who is reportedly a close ally of former CIA Director John Brennan. According to sources, “establishment officials in that agency are still dragging their feet.”

For the time being, intelligence officials are not in any trouble, according to sources, as Attorney General Bill Barr has only requested, rather than demanded, the documents. Barr is hoping for their cooperation. But that could soon change.

Frustrated with intelligence agency officials’ resistance, President Trump orchestrated a shake-up of senior leadership in ODNI, leading to the departures of Coats and Gordon.

Well, fine. But who was the danged fool that appointed Coats in the first place, I wonder? Hmmm

Dan Coats, a veteran of the US Army Corps of Engineers who served from 1966 through 1968, was an Indiana congressman throughout the 1980s. He was elected to the first of two stints in the Senate in 1988, filling the seat of Vice President Dan Quayle. Coats left the Senate in 1998 and was appointed ambassador to Germany by George W. Bush in 2001. He was re-elected to the Senate in 2011 where he served until Donald Trump appointed him DNI in 2017.

Oooops. Kinda ironic, innit, that one of Trump’s most-repeated campaign boasts was that he would be appointing nothing but “the best people, believe me” to posts in his administration, when he’s shot himself in the foot time and again with blunders like this. Between the Ogabe stay-behind saboteurs, entrenched Deep State remoras doggedly determined to resist anything resembling change or reform, and outright fanatical enemies of his administration appointed by Trump, the man has done himself no favors.

Stupid questions update! Corrupt forever, forever corrupt.

Why is the FBI obstructing the release of its disgraced former director’s memos? As they say, just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. Whatever harm releasing these memos might cause to the FBI’s legitimate crime-fighting ability is surely offset by the lack of accountability for one of the most controversial episodes in the bureau’s history. The public must know that the FBI is not operating as a government unto itself.

It is to laugh; that’s exactly what the FBI IS doing, and has been since its inception.

Fellow son of Kansas City Harry S Truman wrote during his presidency: “We want no Gestapo or secret police.”

But we got both.

“FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail… Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.”

In spite of all the reforms, oversight, and internal regulations meant to protect the elected governance from the power of the unelected FBI, liberal journalist Michael Isikoff wrote this of Comey’s private meeting with Donald Trump, the subject matter of some of these memos: “Senior FBI officials were concerned then-director James Comey would appear to be blackmailing then-President-elect Trump

Which he was.

– using tactics notoriously associated with J. Edgar Hoover

Which they were.

– when he attended a fateful Jan. 6, 2017, meeting at which he informed the real estate magnate about allegations he had consorted with prostitutes in Moscow.”

He’s not the only one. The president-elect also thought the FBI director was using the occasion of a private pre-inauguration meeting as blackmail to gain control over the incoming president. Trump thought Comey used the Christopher Steele dossier story of Trump directing Russian hookers in a Moscow hotel room as “leverage“ to secure his job. Comey himself understood the appearance of his private briefing of the president: “I was very concerned that he might interpret it as an effort to pull a J. Edgar Hoover on him.”

Which you did.

Then, when the president fired Comey, the former FBI director retaliated by releasing some of the contents of memos for the stated purpose of prompting the appointment of a special counsel to investigate Trump. Isn’t that what unsuccessful blackmailers do when their targets balk?

Looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck…

Comey had another reason to want the swift appointment of a special counsel. He literally lost sleep over the prospect that the president had made an audio recording of their meetings. “I woke up in the middle of the night on Monday night, because it didn’t dawn on me originally, that there might be corroboration for our conversation, there might be a tape.”

Pro tip for ya, Honest Jim: actual men of integrity—honorable, trustworthy, forthright men—are never plagued by such fears. NEVER.

Whatever spooks or spies might be outed by the release of Comey’s memos, the American people should have the right to insist upon the supremacy of constitutional interests over the reputations of career bureaucrats who might be embarrassed by a public airing of their misconduct. Attorney General William Barr should tell the FBI to pound sand.

Yeah, not holding my breath over here. The FBI has never been anything but a wholly corrupt and unaccountable agency: a rogue department of a government itself gone rogue. There is no “reforming” it; the problems stemming from its corporate degeneracy cannot be resolved short of dismantling it. Which, none of us should be holding our breath waiting on that, either.

SO(FBI)S update! The leopard’s spots do not change.

The IG concluded that by using sensitive information “to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI  employees — and the many thousands more former FBI employees — who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information.” The IG report warned that “the civil liberties of every individual who may fall within the scope of the FBI’s investigative authorities depend on FBI’s ability to protect sensitive information from unauthorized disclosure.”

This is true but it ignores the FBI’s long record of violating Americans’ liberties and covert political interventions. As Yale University historian Beverly Gage noted, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover “insisted that investigative files be kept secret, waging repeated battles to keep them away from the courts and Congress. But he also became a master of the leak, parceling out choice tidbits to reporters at strategic moments.” Hoover’s FBI covertly intervened in the presidential elections of 1948 (seeking to sabotage Henry Wallace’s campaign), 1952 (smearing Democratic candidate Adlai Stevenson as gay), and 1964 (spying on the campaign of Republican nominee Barry Goldwater). 

Nothing but corruption and abuse of power, all the way down. That the once-proud American people blithely tolerate the continued existence of such an abominable affront to every Founding principle is as damning and shameful an indictment as can be imagined.

The Deep State wins!

Game over.

The Justice Department inspector general released a scathing report on former FBI Director James Comey’s notes memorializing his conversations with President Trump, finding that he disclosed them without authorization “to achieve a personally desired outcome.”

The 83-page report on Comey’s handling of “sensitive information,” released Thursday, said the investigation found “no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the Memos to members of the media.”

But Inspector General Michael Horowitz faulted Comey for his behavior, saying his actions “violated Department or FBI policy, or the terms of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement. As described in this report, we conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.”

Horowitz criminally referred Comey to the Justice Department for his conduct, but the agency declined to prosecute.

Because of course it did.

And that’s just about it for the sick joke some Americans have been pleased to refer to as “the rule of law,” folks. Now we know for sure that there is but one very simple Rule of Law, and it is this: everyday Americans are subject to them. Powerful liberal politicians and parasitic Deep State scumbuckets are not. Full stop, end of story.

For some, though, a sad, forlorn hope still remains. It’s kinda pitiful to see, in truth.

That might be expected from an OIG who accused FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe of “lacking candor,”and violating FBI policy. The OIG released the report just before the Labor Day weekend, when it was least likely to command attention. In similar style in 2016, FBI boss Comey released documents on Hillary Clinton’s emails on the afternoon of September 2, just before the holiday weekend. Comey took the August 29 OIG report as confirmation that, as he said of Hillary Clinton, no reasonable prosecutor would charge him with anything.

The former FBI boss went into his end-zone dance, tweeting that “a quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice.” That celebration may be premature. OIG Michael Horowitz is also investigating abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, and Comey signed off on three of the four FISA applications for Carter Page. In addition, Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham are investigating the origins of the Russia collusion probe.

I no longer can honestly say I am clinging to any hope at all of seeing justice done via Barr or Horowitz. At this point, it would be more honest for the Barr/Horowitz dumbshow to simply fold the tents and shut down; nothing whatsoever is going to come of these “investigations,” and justice will never be served on any of the Ruling Class conspirators who plotted an actual coup d’ état, and very nearly pulled it off too. As the above piece goes on to say:

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told reporters that Comey’s investigation of Hillary Clinton was “a sellout, a fix from day one.” The DOJ and establishment media should have seen it all coming.

Comey became FBI director in 2013 under POTUS 44, formerly known as Barry Soetoro. He was in the process of transforming the USA into a country where the outgoing president appoints his successor and rigs the system in her favor. So no surprise that Comey would not recommend prosecution of an influence peddler who kept an illegal private server, destroyed more than 30,000 subpoenaed emails, smashed up electronic devices, and other violations that would have landed anyone else in prison.

Clinton crony Comey did his job and kept Hillary in the race. After she lost, Comey did his best to target the winner, Donald Trump, for which the DOJ Inspector General has now tapped him on the wrist. On the other hand, the investigation of Comey is hardly the only game in town.

So? The conspirators, just like HILLARY!™ and Obama, will remain, in the gloating words of murdering terrorist and Obama mentor Bill Ayers, “guilty as hell, free as a bird.” Tell me, does Her Herness—pictured in the posh Hamptons resort area on her way to another drunken binge, no doubt—look worried at all to you folks?

Looking_relaxed_Hillary.jpg

Of course she doesn’t. Because she isn’t. Because she has no reason to be; as a card-carrying member of the Ruling Class, she enjoys complete immunity from consequences for absolutely any and all felonious, treasonous, seditious, or otherwise deplorable acts she may commit. She knows it; with this Comey whitewash, it has just been re-confirmed for all of us.

There’s been some discussion recently about a widespread and growing loss of faith and trust in America’s institutions. At this point, any even minimally-aware person who still retains the slightest shred of such is a damned fool. This country and its government is a disgrace, an abomination. ZMan brings it all home:

The reason that most people have been holding out hope that this seditious plot would be prosecuted is they don’t really believe everyone in the ruling class is a villainous gangster. Again, even the jaded on this side of the divide thought something would come from this caper, even if it was just the release of a documents showing there was a plot. Maybe a few low-level punks like Lisa Page and Peter Strzok would get a show trial and be sent off to Club Fed for a few years.

It is increasingly clear, that nothing will happen. Bill Barr is just the latest flim-flam man to bamboozle Donald Trump into trusting him. It is clear now that his assignment is to cover up the crimes of official Washington. It has been six months since he was authorized to start releasing the classified documents describing the actions of the FBI during this caper. So far, nothing has been released. In fact, Bill Barr is fighting public disclosure of documents a federal judge ordered released months ago.

As Bill Barr slowly and efficiently covers up the seditious plot and other crimes committed by the FBI and DOJ during the Obama years, it is not unreasonable to wonder how far down the scale this moves the political center. Twenty-five years ago, most dissidents would have thought this level of corruption was improbable, if not entirely impossible. The typical normie was still sure the next election would bring reformers, who would chase off the crooks and clean up the system.

…It is becoming increasingly difficult for the civic nationalist to operate in anything but a fantasy world. Whatever you may think of Trump, the result of the last three years is proof that elections don’t matter. This shameless refusal by public officials to apply the law to Washington insiders makes a mockery of the rule of law. Throw in the stunning dishonesty of the mass media and the metastasizing surveillance state and it is impossible for even the most gullible to remain a civic nationalist.

Indeed. As I’ve said many times: the fourth of July ought to be a day not of celebration, but of mourning.

Update! Bottom line:

If you have one set of laws for the members of the government and another set for everyone else, you are not being governed, you are being ruled.

Bingo.

Anything goes update! A clear message, sent and received.

How can the I.G. Report say Comey’s actions were a “dangerous example for over 35,000 current FBI employees — and the many thousands more former FBI employees” and the DOJ determine that those actions are not prosecutable? Is this not a clear message from the DOJ to those 35,000-plus FBI employees that there are no legal consequences if they ever decide to do what James Comey did?

This not only stinks to high heaven, but absolutely makes no sense — unless you believe in the existence of a “Deep State” that is in control of our government.

This is not a conspiracy theory; this is solid evidence that the entire justice system of our country is corrupt.

The DOJ has just let the world know that from this day forward, the FBI is unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly. How safe do you feel now?

Read the I.G. Report conclusion and ask yourself where you would be sitting tonight if you did what James Comey did.

I gotta wonder now if the “no criminal intent” wheeze Comey cooked up to exonerate Her Herness was something of a trial run to gauge its effectiveness should he ever need such a handy escape hatch himself.

Revisionism 101

The Old Grey Whore, at it again.

Last week, a little pamphlet of the working man called the New York Times announced a new initiative in moral enlightenment for the great mass of ignorant Americans. The “1619 Project,” as it’s called, “aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of the story.”

Those with questions about this exercise in revisionism are being cast as bigots who just hate that America’s “paper of record” is acknowledging our “real past.” Right. Because if there’s one thing Americans don’t hear enough about, it’s how evil and racist their country is.

The Times is asking for more than a “re-examination” of the country’s history. The editors are not really looking to “explore” anything in earnest: they’ve already reached their conclusions, assumed to be obvious and beyond dispute. Here is a declaration from the nation’s leading newspaper that the Founding as we understand it is illegitimate, that America needs to be fundamentally re-imagined and reconstructed.

Well, duh. They’ve only been screaming this very thing directly in our faces for years now—since at least “fundamental transformation” and “for the first time I’m proud of my country,” if not well before. So how many more times do we all need to hear it before we stop pretending to be shocked by it and take them at their word?

No serious person would disagree that American slavery was a disgraceful system, or that racial disparities persist today. But what, exactly, do the revisionists expect to keep the nation together once the ancien regime has been abolished?

Brute force, subjugation, and iron-fisted tyranny, natch. More from Steve Sailer:

How exactly retconning American history will get rid of Trump was left vague, but Baquet was confident that it was all part of the Times’ seamless plot.

By the way, that’s some hilariously shameless boasting about the power of The Narrative to warp minds.

As I’ve pointed out, The Narrative is pushed less by printing fake news or by completely censoring true news than by the power of the prestige press to pick out ideologically convenient items from the vast surfeit of events and declare them the news about which we are all supposed to have a “conversation.”

Did, say, a Catholic schoolboy “smirk” at a “tribal elder”?

Now, that’s national news!

In contrast, in the wake of the vaunted Black Lives Matter protests in Ferguson, did four Teens of Color in St. Louis, shouting “Kill the white people,” hammer a white man to death?

Why are you interested in a local police blotter detail?

And if there is a lot of news for powerful interests to pick and choose amongst, there’s even more history.

Lots, lots more from Sailer, who wanders pretty far afield in this nonetheless interesting analysis.

“All The People Who Think They Are Better Than You Are Much, Much Worse”

Ironic, innit?

Our elite is anything but. It’s a collection of pedestrian mediocrities who inherited our civilization from the people who actually created it and fought for it, and like every spoiled child who was handed free stuff by his doting mommy and daddy, our elite is resentful and obnoxious.

We’re ruled by a bunch of Veruca Salts.

Of course they don’t appreciate what it takes to build, feed, fuel and defend what we have – as a group, they didn’t do any of those things. No one appreciates what he didn’t work for and earn, and our alleged betters did not work for and earn the positions and prestige they hold at the heads of our institutions. They got where they are by just showing up, and by parroting hacky, politically correct dogma, not by actual achievement.

Look at the freaks our universities are pumping out – they can’t read, they can’t write, they think history started in 1996, and the only things they ever created are evermore tiresome and weird gender identities.

Hello, I am Teddy Roosevelt. I was born wealthy, won the Medal of Honor, busted the trusts like this Facebook atrocity of which you speak, and I literally punched out a bear once.

Yo, my name is Kaden. I’m an otherkin-identifying, non-binary gendered, two-spirit from Brooklyn with a degree in Climate Change Ventriloquism from Yale. I’m not ashamed to cry when I see a MAGA hat because my mom says my feelings are important. Bernie is too patriarchal for me, so Beto 2020!

Here’s a question, and it’s a fair one. What has the ruling class done right in the last 20 years? 

We are actually losing ground. Our light bulbs don’t light anymore, our front-loading washing machines don’t wash anymore and our straws don’t straw anymore. Even our Star Wars movies today are exponentially crappier than the ones from 40 years ago.

So, what’s just one great thing the magnificent, magical masterminds of our elite have pulled off since maybe 2000?

Just one.

One thing.

Go.

Let’s not any of us be holding our breath waiting, ‘kay? This next bit ends with one of my own personal pet peeves:

What have they ever solved? Hell, they created most of these problems in the first place. They whine about student loans, but who set up the college cash machine that is American academia? Our medical system is a wreck? Dudes, our medical system is Obamacare, and you’re the ones who stuffed it down our gullets!

I’ve griped here several times about the sudden onslaught of blah-blah about “fixing” Obamacare after Trump took office. Not to seem pedantic here or anything, but…ummmm…let’s see now…Obamacare WAS the fix, wasn’t it? That’s how they sold it to us, anyway. But remember Mike’s Iron Law regarding Progressivists: the only solution to the problems they themselves create is always and forever MORE OF THE SAME, STAT! The problem is never, ever that they did the wrong thing, that they screwed the pooch, that they don’t know what the hell they’re doing, that they’re in over their empty, pointed heads. No, the problem—each and every single time, on every issue—is that we just didn’t go far enough.

They’ll never admit either error or cluelessness. They’ll never admit the fundamental impossibility of micro-micromanaging a nation of 350 million souls, spread over an entire continent, from their well-insulated enclaves in Mordor On The Potomac. They’ll never acknowledge the simple wisdom behind the Founders’ insistence that keeping government as close as possible to the people it governs must inevitably maximize its efficiency, its flexibility, and its accountability. Hell, they’ll never even ‘fess up to their myriad failures being failures.

They can only keep on cramming all possible power into the hands of our DC “elite” masters—trying, and failing at everything except strictly that—and just never you serfs mind about all the failure, arrogance, and incompetence, thanksverymuch.

Burn in Hell

Hate on (((DEM JOOOOOZ!!!))) all you want. Just remember, though, your juvenile stupidity and paranoia is putting you squarely on the same team as these two terrorist-supporting, genocidal Muslim slimeballs.

Omar said she and Tlaib were “being denied the right to see for ourselves the reality on the ground in the West Bank” and the ban was “nothing less than an attempt by an ally of the United States to suppress our ability to do our jobs as elected officials.

Yeah, fuck you. You aren’t the slightest bit interested in any “reality on the ground,” bitch. You’re interested solely in propagandizing for the “drive the Jews into the sea” agenda of a bunch of murdering subhumans. Israel was right—and well within their rights—to keep you out, being under no obligation whatsoever to roll out the welcome mat for terrorist-supporting shitstirrers seeking only to undermine their security and sow discord. Would that the US still had the gumption and self-respect to turn your sorry ass back at its own border and deny you re-entry, too.

“We give Israel more than $3 million in aid every year,” she said. “This is predicated on they’re being an important ally in the region and the ‘only democracy’ in the Middle East,” making air quotes with her fingers.

OOOOOOOOH, 3 million a year, is it? STAGGERING sum, that. Many of our own homegrown ((((JOOOOOO!!)))) haters like to bitch about that too, to bolster their argument against Israel’s existence. Only one little problem.

According to the US Consulate in Jerusalem’s website, the United States has been the largest donor of aid to the Palestinians since the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1994. This aid has totaled around $600 million annually in recent years, and can be roughly divided into three categories.

The first is USAID, the conduit by which the State Department provides aid to countries across the world. The second is the economic support for law and order in the Palestinian Authority. These two categories were perhaps the aid that Trump had in mind in his tweet, though the president did not specify. The third is the US support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA, as addressed by Haley.

So, let’s see then: 3 mill for support for the only functioning democracy in the ME, a nation which as far as I’m aware hasn’t seen a single incidence of anti-American protests featuring shouts of “Death to America,” burning and stomping of the US flag, placards with 3rd-grade-level artwork of troglodytic Muslim murderers slaughtering American soldiers, etc. In return for that relative pittance, we get reliable support of all kinds in every global forum or venue from Israel’s government; access to the uncountable medical, military, and technological innovations Israel provides the world; and a stable, prosperous, rational, and responsible state smack in the middle of one of the most violent, primordial, chaotic shitpits on the entire planet.

That’s in contrast to *6 FUCKING HUNDRED MILLION* US DOLLARS per year shoveled to a passel of useless swine, most of which is clandestinely misappropriated to provide support for a global terrorist network that has savagely murdered who even knows who many innocent civilians all over the world, including thousands upon thousands of Americans. The rest is simply stolen, lining the pockets of various kleptocratic Paleosimian “officials.”

I dunno, call me a dupe of the Interplanetary ((((JOOOOOOOO!)))) Conspiracy here (yes, they’re putting JEW COOTIES on the moon now, apparently), but if we’re going to complain about how much aid goes where, I know which beneficaries of US largesse I’d prefer to see cut off from Uncle Sugar Tit’s pursestrings, and which one we’re getting some kind of actual return on investment from. Back to our original article for more subversive whining from this rectal polyp.

“We must be asking, as Israel’s ally, the Netanyahu government stop the expansion of settlements on Palestinian land, and ensure full rights for Palestinians if we are to give them aid. These are not just my views. These are the views held by the range of experts, peace advocates on this issue.”

“Peace advocates.” “Experts.” *snort*

“We know Donald Trump would love nothing more than to use this issue to pit Muslims and Jewish Americans against each other. The Muslim community and the Jewish community are being othered and made into the bogeyman by this administration. But as we will hear today, people of all different faiths are coming together to speak up against the status quo in the region,” she continued.

Au contraire, Muzzrat scum; Trump doesn’t need to “use” this or any other issue to pit Muslims and civilized people against each other, nor does anybody else. Your own filthy little murder book, the Koran, already accomplished the task quite completely, filled cover to cover as it is with your pedophile prophet’s exhortations to slaughter, subjugation, and genocide, all at the behest of your false “God.” And it’s Pisslam’s stubborn, millenia-long campaign of war, terror, and conquest against Western civilization that long ago established your “people” as a very real “bogeyman,” “otherizing” you far more effectively than Trump ever could.

600 million a year to the Paleosimians. Not just one time, but per annum, for YEARS—adding up to a grand total of 5.2 BILLION since 1994. For absolutely nothing. Sorry to dwell on it and all, but I’m having a little trouble getting past that one, folks.

Prog-nosis: piss poor

More like an endlessly-metastasizing tumor, I think. Or a parasitical infection, like tapeworms, maybe. But still, the man…uhh, gorilla has a point.

I was thinking the other day that progressivism is like a virus. This is no doubt a bit of an oversimplification, but this is how viruses work: when they come in contact with a cell, they trick it into thinking it’s something they need, like a nutrient, so the virus gets pulled in. Once inside, the virus repurposes the cell’s DNA into making more viruses. The cell gets turned into, literally, a virus factory. Eventually, so many viruses will be manufactured that the cell will burst, releasing all of the new viruses to infect other cells.

You can see the parallels with progressivism. First, unlike a normal cell, which has a function as part of some larger organism and can reproduce itself, viruses can’t exist independently. They’re kind of like a parasite. Similarly, progressives don’t really do anything useful or productive.

Also, viruses don’t do anything except cause illness. I guess there are some viruses that have been indentified as beneficial, but not many. So, generally speaking, if you have a virus, it’s bad. And any time a progressive shows up and wants to do something or be in charge of something, it’s bad. When left unchecked, viruses will reduce healthy organisms to a sickly caricature of what they formerly were. Case in point: The Star Wars franchise. Or the State Department.

Second, progressives also gain entry into institutions and organizations by deception. They trick the unwary into opening the door for them by using words such as ‘peace’, ‘justice’, ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ as if they are actually interested in peace, justice, equality, and fairness. Which they’re not. Everything they tell you is a lie.

GP goes on to lay out several more good points of comparison, winding up with this:

Finally, like most viruses, science hasn’t really found a cure for progressivism.

Well, maturity usually does the trick. As Churchill put it (or, possibly, didn’t): if you’re not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you’re not a conservative at 40, you have no brain. Failing that, a single dose of lead in a copper or steel jacket, topically applied to either the head or the Sniper’s Triangle area, would work nicely too.

Less talk, more action

Julie Kelly loses patience.

While Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s name quickly has vanished from the front pages following his disastrous testimony before Congress last month, the investigation into “Russiagate”—how top officials in the Obama Administration fabricated the phony Russian collusion hoax and weaponized the country’s most powerful law enforcement tools against an American political campaign—appears to be moving at a snail’s pace. 

The results of a long-awaited probe by the Justice Department’s inspector general into potential abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court by Comey’s FBI has been delayed again until at least early fall. In a separate inquiry, Inspector General Michael Horowitz reportedly concluded that Comey illegally leaked classified information and referred the former FBI director to the Justice Department for possible prosecution, but Attorney General William Barr reportedly rejected that advice: “Prosecutors found the IG’s findings compelling but decided not to bring charges because they did not believe they had enough evidence of Comey’s intent to violate the law, according to multiple sources,” reported John Solomon at The Hill earlier this month. 

Umm, forgive my ignorance in bringing it up and all, but wasn’t Comey’s transparently corrupt use of the spurious “lack of intent” standard to paint over Hillary!™‘s crimes something we were all making sport of not too long ago? And now BARR is resorting to it?

Sorry, y’all excuse me for a moment.

Doublefacepalm.jpg

Okay, onwards.

The House Intelligence Committee last year asked the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to declassify and publish depositions by dozens of people the committee interviewed about the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. That request remains unfulfilled. 

In May, the White House empowered Barr to declassify all materials needed to expedite his office’s investigation into Russiagate.

“Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions,” announced former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. Nearly three months later, the public has not seen one document.

In January 2018, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) referred Steele to the Justice Department for a criminal investigation for lying to federal officials. Steele has not been charged. In April 2018, 11 House Republicans sent a letter to the DOJ asking for criminal investigations into Comey, McCabe, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and others for various offenses. Comey continues to rant on Twitter and write anti-Trump columns for the New York Times; McCabe is a regular on MSNBC and now is suing his former employer for wrongful dismissal based on—get this—political reasons. McCabe also has been under grand jury investigation for at least a year.

The Mueller report concluded that Joseph Mifsud, the man who allegedly triggered the FBI’s probe into the Trump campaign in July 2016 after he met with George Papadopoulos, lied three times to investigators. Unlike several other Trump associates, including Papadopoulos, Mifsud has not been charged with perjury.

Alas, Kelly presents plenty more support for the depressing idea that the Deep State fix is well and truly in. Even my own hope of seeing justice done for the dastardly crimes against American self-government committed by the coup conspirators is beginning to fade. It all makes Sanders’ statement about “restoring confidence” in our tainted, toxic institutions sound like either pathetically naive blather or some kind of sick, sick joke. Lends considerable weight to that last post about the importance of resisting the gun-grabbers, now don’t it?

CF Comments Policy Statement

Comments appear entirely at the whim of the guy who pays the bills for this site and may be deleted, ridiculed, maliciously edited for purposes of mockery, or otherwise pissed over as he in his capricious fancy sees fit. The CF comments section is pretty free-form and rough and tumble; tolerance level for rowdiness and misbehavior is fairly high here, but is NOT without limit. Management is under no obligation whatever to allow the comments section to be taken over and ruined by trolls, Leftists, and/or other oxygen thieves, and will take any measures deemed necessary to prevent such. Conduct yourself with the merest modicum of decorum, courtesy, and respect and you'll be fine. Pick pointless squabbles with other commenters, fling provocative personal insults, issue threats, or annoy the host (me) and...you won't.

Should you find yourself sanctioned after running afoul of the CF comments policy as stated and feel you have been wronged, please download and complete the Butthurt Report form below in quadruplicate; retain one copy for your personal records and send the others to the email address posted in the right sidebar. Please refrain from whining, sniveling, and/or bursting into tears and waving your chubby fists around in frustrated rage, lest you suffer an aneurysm or stroke unnecessarily. Your completed form will be reviewed and your complaint addressed whenever management feels like getting around to it. Thank you.
