AntiFa at it again

Another day, another violent riot.

A planned rally by conservative groups to show support for ICE and police officers was met with hundreds of black-clad, masked Antifa thugs on Saturday near the Independence Visitor Center on 5th and 6th streets.

According to reports, about 80 conservatives showed up to the rally compared to the hundreds of Antifa thugs who showed up to counter-protest (cause trouble).

According to the police commissioner, 4 people were arrested; one person punched a police captain.


Pro tip: if you’re violently suppressing the right to free speech and peaceable assembly, YOU’RE THE FUCKING NAZI.

GO HOME!

Shitlibs to denounce Mexicans as RACIST NAZI NATIONALIST GREEDY NAZI HEARTLESS RIGHT-WING BIGOT NAZIS JUST LIKE HITLER!! in 5…4…3…2…never.

Mexican residents of Playas De Tijuana confronted Honduran migrants who had set up a makeshift camp at “Friendship Park” in Playas De Tijuana. The Mexican residents demanded that the the migrants leave the area and threaten the migrants if they did not leave. Federal and Municipal Mexican police kept both groups separated and some incidents of violence broke out throughout the night.

Gee, imagine that. Why, it’s almost as if those dear Brown People to our immediate south think their country maybe ought to have borders, ain’t it?

Actually, it’s more as if shitlibs think THIS country should be the only one in the world without ’em, actually.

Degeneration

Sowing chaos, with nefarious intent.

A Florida school district allowed a self-described transgender female student regular access to the boys’ locker room, with no advance warning to the boys or their parents. The first time she walked in, she caught “boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl,” says a complaint letter to Pasco County School District from Liberty Counsel, a pro-bono constitutional law firm.

With a “gag order,” school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed girl in the Chasco Middle School locker room, the letter says. When he refused to “knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress,” administrators told him “he will be transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.’”

In an email, an administrator initially threatened to put the male coach on administrative leave, telling him that refusing to supervise a potentially naked female student would “not be tolerated,”said Liberty Counsel attorney Richard Mast. The school’s other P.E. teacher, who is female, also objected and was ignored.

Pasco parents have yet to be informed by the school of this situation, yet the transgender student continues to have open access to private male areas, according to Liberty Counsel. Despite the initial September incident, then legal contact in October, the elected board for the district with 70,500 students has so far taken no action and administrators have refused to budge.

“Unfortunately these things are going on across the country, primarily with school psychologists and guidance counselors,” said Mast. He noted that it’s standard for public schools to pass transgender policies without informing parents, voters, or taxpayers first. That means the public only hears about it after children have been affected, withholding all opportunities for parents to prevent their child’s exposure to this kind of sexual indoctrination, confusion, and exploitation.

Last year in a Georgia public school, a five-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by a “gender-fluid” male classmate in the school bathroom after a transgender policy allowed him access. He allegedly pushed her against the wall and repeatedly jammed his fingers into her genitals while she struggled. The district refuses to believe the alleged victim and the mother has pulled her daughter from the school, which never notified her of the incident and maintains its bathroom policy.

Unpossible. We’ve been repeatedly told by our betters that this kind of assault has never happened, because it can’t happen, because reasons.

It appears Pasco schools adopted their transgender policies with no notice to their elected school board, parents, or voters. Instead, they were implemented after the district hired Jackie Jackson-Dean, a school psychologist, as a LGBT liason. Her website lists her as the “primary author of the school district’s [LGBT] best practices guide,” which names her as its”lead content developer.” That guide says transgender pronouns, locker room, bathroom, dress code, and sports access are a student’s “right.”

So, having a school “LGBT liaison” is now a thing, is it? Say, just how deep DOES this rabbit hole go, anyway?

An OutCoast.com article from 2017 says Jackson-Dean uses her position at the school to connect students with an organization called Metro, which has nine Tampa Bay locations. Metro helps LGBT minors and adults meet, gives counseling to LGBT-identified and questioning people including minors, and hands out drugs that aim to reduce HIV transmission when people have risky sex. Metro website notes that the Food and Drug Administration has approved this drug for children 15 to 17, meaning legal minors.

What, no NAMBLA referrals? If not, why not? Is this “expert” some kind of closeted H8RRR or something?

An “LGBT-Inclusive School,” Jackson-Dean’s guide says, has: “Health and sexuality education that is inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities”; “curriculum that regularly includes information about LGBT people, history, and events”; and “Library resources and displays that are inclusive of LGBT people, history, and issues.” It also has “Proms, homecoming, and athletic events that allow for gender-neutral alternatives to ‘King’ and ‘Queen’”; and “Observations of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day that affirm all family structures.”

We are building a better world. All of them, better worlds.”

A school that is helping LGBT students will not only treat families as potential sources of trauma whose rejection directly leads to LGBT children’s depression and suicide, but also have “‘Out’ teachers,” “Inclusive paperwork (e.g. NOT mother/father),” and “Messaging from administration regarding non-tolerance of harassment and discrimination,” the guide says.

Jeez, but what a sprawling, destructive, indecipherable mess. Which, if you think that isn’t the entire point and purpose of all this balderdash, you got yourself some more thinking to do.

The boundless, balls-out arrogance of these “educators” is what really stands out like a beacon to me. They manipulate the children for PC purposes, ignore or openly defy the rights of parents to any authority or even input regarding the “education” of their own children, operate in secret without oversight, and are unaccountable to anyone other than their own superiors at the state and federal level. They infantilize parents, sexualize children, and politicize the education process itself.

A number of commenters to the article say that this is the hill to die on—the line in the sand dividing peaceful attempts at dialogue, reconciliation, and redress from violence and war. Given that, as I’ve so often said, all of our problems with the seditious Left begin with government-school indoctrination of our youth, I’m having a hard time finding a way to argue with that.

Preach it, brother

Oh, how I love this.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Emboldened, and all-in

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Raising Stealing Arizona

Just a little bit more of this kind of “winning” will finish us off completely.

Democrat congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner of Arizona’s U.S. Senate race Monday night, almost a week after final midterm election votes were cast.

Republican Martha McSally showed an early lead in the race to replace Sen. Jeff Flake as one of Arizona’s two U.S. Senators, but after two days of vote counting, that lead flipped to Democrat Sinema. That lead widened as Maricopa County released batch after batch of vote results. As of Monday evening, Sinema had garnered 49.68 percent of the vote to McSally’s 47.96 percent, a difference of 1.72 percent and over 38,000 votes. Sinema had 1,097,321 votes to McSally’s 1,059,124 votes at the time.

McSally issued a video concession Monday after AP called the race for Sinema.

So, with Sinema in, Bill Nelson likely to follow, and Republican “control” of the Senate resting on the quaking shoulders of Murkowski, Collins, and (gulp!) Mitt Fucking Romney, can anybody seriously claim that we’re better off than we were before? I repeat: if this is “winning,” we could do with a lot less of it.

Update! Want to end Democrat-Socialist election fraud? Here’s how.

Enough is enough. Election after election, boxes of Democrat ballots show up in counties run by Democratic election supervisors to benefit Democratic candidates who, once they steal their opponent’s election night victory, will join the chorus warning of Russian interference in our elections. Last time I checked, there were no Russian election officials in Palm Beach or Broward counties in Florida.

Democrats have long pushed for voting ease at the expense of voting integrity, pushing measures from voting by mail, to Motor Voter laws, to same-day registration while opposing voter ID laws which requires people to show up on election day with proof they are who they say they are. They claim Voter ID laws are designed to disenfranchise voters. So does the sudden appearance of mystery ballots days, even weeks, after elections without a documented chain of custody or certainty that other ballots weren’t destroyed or that the ballots found were cast by real, live American citizens.

As election night victories seemingly slip away from GOP candidates like Martha McSally in Arizona, Brian Kemp in Georgia, and Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in Florida, one can almost hear Democrat operatives and election officials asking the same question — how many votes does the Democrat candidate need? As in the race that put Al Franken in the Senate, recounts and lawsuits will inevitably continue until the Democrat takes the lead and then the counting will stop with nary a protest from the legacy media or the Russians.

Things like motor voter and early voting are a plague on our electoral integrity that even the Russians couldn’t dream up. Early voting is an excuse for laziness that doesn’t allow a voter to change his mind. Early voters can move to another jurisdiction or even be dead on election day. Motor voter is problematic in states that hand licenses out to illegal aliens who then can drive to the polls and vote, disenfranchising American citizens. Provisional ballots make no sense. If you can’t properly register by election day, don’t bother to show up. It is not that hard. Put down your cell phone, register, and wait for the next election. Mail-in ballots are invitations to fraud, plagued with signatures that don’t match and ballots denied depending on the election judge’s finite wisdom or political prejudice.

Just what is so hard about requiring a voter to physically show up on election day with an ID that proves they are alive, an American citizen, and who they say they are?

It’s not that it’s hard. It’s that it would screw up the whole fraudulent sham of a system. It’s a solution so simple it will never, ever be tried—because The Powers That Be don’t consider our current shitshow of corruption and malfeasance to be a problem.

Our eternal national conceit—that American elections are honestly conducted, with integrity and fairness, producing reliable results deserving of acceptance—is a delusional fairytale. That disgraceful fact has just been demonstrated for us yet again, even more blatantly and brazenly than ever before. But just you watch: come 2020, the loathsome Brenda Snipes will still be running Broward County’s elections, guar-on-teed. I’ll happily eat my damned hat if she ain’t.

Or do you really believe soon-to-be-Governor Gillum will demand her head on a pike or something?

The more things change…

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

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

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

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

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

Whatcha gonna do?

*Crickets*

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

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

They must not know Matt is a Congressman!

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

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

Where are the US Marshals?

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


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

Crickets.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And then did nothing.

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

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

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

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

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

Because we did nothing.

Good thing we kept control of the Senate!

The upper chamber is a more important hold than the House for all sorts of reasons, so it’s a good thing that…uhh, that…ummm, well…

Oh hell.

After seeming victories in the Florida governor’s race, the U.S. Senate race, and the Florida agriculture commissioner race last Tuesday, Republicans in the Sunshine State spent the last two days dumbfounded while Democrat election supervisors in deep-blue Broward and Palm Beach Counties added tens of thousands of previously uncounted votes to the statewide tally.

The newly counted ballots, which are breaking almost 3-to-1 in favor of Democrats, have triggered a likely hand recount, a machine recount, a lawsuit, a law enforcement investigation, and accusations from Republicans that Democrats are literally trying to steal the election.

Anybody out there NOT see this coming, perchance? If so, may I ask what exactly the fucking fuck is WRONG with you? But wait, there’s more:

Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema took the lead in the Arizona Senate race in new numbers released by the state Thursday night, flipping the race from what had appeared to be a GOP hold.

Republican Martha McSally led the vote after the polls closed Tuesday, but hundreds of thousands of ballots were still uncounted, officials said.

As the count comes in, Ms. Sinema has overcome a sizable gap.

Gee. Imagine my surprise. Over at the HQ, a question nobody should be bothering to ask anymore:

So it looks like the Democrats are trying to steal elections in Florida, Arizona, and Georgia. Arizona is completely depressing, because that one never should have been close enough to steal. But that’s another topic. My point is, why, in all of these close races with the Republican in the lead always seem to be won by the Democrat?

Because when “mistakes” and “oversights only go in one direction, they’re aren’t mistakes at all; they’re a process, a plot. The only question that truly matters now is: whatcha gonna do about it?

Which ties in with my post last night; in fact, it’s actually what I was trying to get at, in my usual half-assed, rambling fashion. More on that theme later, maybe. Meanwhile, our great President is still in there swinging despite the Black Tuesday debacle:

So the president in the air on the way to France tweets, “As soon as Democrats sent their best Election stealing lawyer, Marc Elias, to Broward County they miraculously started finding Democrat votes. Don’t worry, Florida – I am sending much better lawyers to expose the FRAUD!” The Trumpster is on the case.

He is indeed, bless him. More on all this—lots, lots more—from Ace.

“Catastrophe”

And coverup.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Proud Boys NYC ass-whupping: the REAL story

It’s ugly, all right.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Update! In praise of the Proud Boys:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Impenetrability! That’s what I say!”

More on birthright citizenship.

The Supreme Court has stated — repeatedly! — that the “main object” of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment “was to settle the question … as to the citizenship of free negroes,” making them “citizens of the United States and of the state in which they reside.”

Democrats, the entire media and House Speaker Paul Ryan seem to have forgotten the Civil War. They believe that, immediately after a war that ended slavery, Americans rose up as one and demanded that the children of illegals be granted citizenship!

Give me a scenario — just one scenario — where the post-Civil War amendments would be intended to grant citizenship to the kids of Chinese ladies flying to birthing hospitals in California, or pregnant Latin Americans sneaking across the border in the back of flatbed trucks.

Whether the children born to legal immigrants are citizens is controversial enough. But at least there’s a Supreme Court decision claiming that they are — U.S. v. Wong Kim Ark. That’s “birthright citizenship.”

It’s something else entirely to claim that an illegal alien, subject to deportation, can drop a baby and suddenly claim to be the parent of a “citizen.”

This crackpot notion was concocted by liberal zealot Justice William Brennan and slipped into a footnote as dicta in a 1982 case. “Dicta” means it was not the ruling of the court, just a random aside, with zero legal significance.

Left-wing activists seized on Brennan’s aside and browbeat everyone into believing that anchor babies are part of our great constitutional heritage, emerging straight from the pen of James Madison.

Because of course they did. When the Through-The-Looking-Glass Left uses the Constitution, it means just what they choose it to mean, neither more nor less. The question is, as always, which is to be master—that’s all.

Degenerates gotta degenerate

Part of a long, LONG list.

Ashley Judd ranting about her menstrual period and Madonna offering promises of oral sex if one voted for Hillary are words. Unfortunately, there is this disturbing trend of late on the Left where words are being replaced by actions.

Take the case of Micah Rhodes, a protest leader in Portland, Oregon. He and his group of protesters have been responsible for blocking traffic and just being general a-holes in their attempt to show their displeasure with Trump. He was recently arrested during a protest, but his court appearance was a charge of pedophilia. He faces four counts of second-degree sexual abuse. Apparently Mr. Rhodes met underage victims on a site called Grindr, were aware they were underage, yet sodomized them anyway. In fact, Rhodes had, as a juvenile, also engaged in such activity and was charged and supposedly under supervision.

There is a strange pattern here. It would seem strange when a feminist march in Washington is co-chaired by a Muslim woman- a religion that is not feminist and is homophobic. Liberals and Muslims seem like strange allies, but not if viewed in the light of making degeneracy normal. One could make a case that depraved perverts have hijacked the Left’s decadence for their own particular peculiar perversions.

But then again, the Left and degeneracy seem to go hand-in-hand. There are certainly historical antecedents. In the 1920’s, German intellectuals justified the rampant prostitution in Berlin where children were sometimes sold into revolting sex acts. Thirty to 40 years later you had the bearded Allen Ginsberg and other beatniks coming out as little boy lovers. Ginsberg even joined NAMBLA.  Michel Foucalt, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, three French intellectuals on the Left, wanted the age of consent in France lowered to 13.

From the decadence of Berlin in the 1920’s to the sex trafficking by black activists today, the one common thread is duplicity.  Proponents of justice, they ignore “justice” when it does not suit their narrative. The reason is simple: they do not care about justice. They do care about their own self-gratification. If society has to be burnt to the ground to satisfy the burning in their loins, so be it.

They are not at war for justice. They are at war against normalcy.

Well, yeah. In the larger picture, it’s all part of the Left’s bratty, juvenile self-absorption. While we’re on the topic of degenerates, here are few sets of said burning loins:



Oog. I just threw up in my mouth a little here. As I said the other day: can’t somebody find a way to make these unappetizing, lumpy road apples keep their damned clothes on? Ace suffers a slightly more severe reaction than mine:

Twitchy reports that an outlet called Seven Days wrote:

Unhappy with the direction of the country, the women of varied shapes, sizes, ages and backgrounds bared it all for an intimate, empowering photo session in Burlington, said organizer Dawn Robertson.

“How can we inspire women to vote after the Kavanaugh confirmation, the #MeToo movement and Trump?” said Robertson, a Harvard Law-educated attorney who writes about sexuality and relationships. “It’s a culmination of all those factors.”

Well you’ve inspired me into homosexuality so, halfway to Democrat I guess!

I have to admit that, considering all of the above, emulating the “transgender” freakazoids by chopping off my dick looks one hell of a lot more appealing all of a sudden.

Build the dam wall!

Hate speech.

There seems no way that the caravan of 4,000–14,000 migrants approaching our southern border is going to end without blood being shed. There probably will be blood. And, while the debate over “man-made climate change” is far from over, the debate over The Wall is finally over:

The Wall finally must be built. Just as a dam serves as a last-ditch physical barrier to prevent or control a flood, The Wall now is revealed as the only logistical way to create a barrier to prevent or control a flood of Illegals. So, as an Orthodox Rabbi who must restrict certain words I use, it is not inappropriate for me to say: Build the Dam Wall already!

Let it be clear: If we let them in — and, yes, they are people with feelings and sensitivities and loves and hopes and dreams — then there will be another Caravan after it, and next time it will be a Caravan of 10-15,000 sensitive lovers and hopers and dreamers. And three months later it will be another Caravan. And then another. What $38 million cash raised and wasted in one calendar quarter could not buy for Beto O’Rourke and his Kennedyesque DUI driving record and his Kennedyesque attempt to flee from the scene, the hordes will solve: Texas really will turn bold shades of “overnight blue.” Arizona will turn blue. Alabama and Mississippi will turn blue. North Dakota and Montana and Idaho will turn blue. We will lose this country — exactly as the Democrat playbook seeks. Despite their losing the male vote, the Caucasian female vote, the married woman vote, the blue-collar union worker vote, the Democrats simply will import hordes of new voters to seize power.

It is the same Leftist strategy as their new dream of stacking the federal courts: if they cannot gain majorities fairly under the established rules, then just change the rules by stacking the numbers. The Left’s model is California. With the exception of Donald Trump, we elect Presidents who either have held prior significant elected office (e.g., United States Senators, Congressional representatives, Governors, Vice Presidents) or who have been heroic generals who won major American wars (e.g., George Washington, William Henry Harrison, Zachary Taylor, U.S. Grant, Ike) or both (e.g., Andrew Jackson, James Garfield, Teddy Roosevelt). Not all that long ago, California gave us Sen. Richard Nixon and Gov. Ronald Reagan, whose elected offices entitled them to reach the Presidency. Today, with California’s “jungle primary” that effectively limits most statewide elections to races between two Democrats, neither Nixon nor Reagan would even be on the ballot for statewide office. So Reagan never would have become a Governor and, therefore, not a President. Great and successful California governors like George Deukmejian and Pete Wilson never would have been elected. Instead, we have a paltry polity defined by Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and other “jungle primary” arrivals. Just consider the drek from which Californians now will choose a U.S. Senator: Dianne Feinstein or Kevin Leon (who later changed his named to “de León” to get more Spanish votes).

If the Democrats succeed in eviscerating our southern border — and that is their plan: DACA, catch-and-release, abolish ICE — they can overcome a century of their losing the support of Americans who once trusted them — blue-collar ethnic Catholics, union workers, married women, seniors. Instead, they can win just by importing tens of millions of new voters unschooled in American values, clueless as to the Constitution, knowing and caring nothing of our culture and higher purposes. Between suffering Illegals, encouraging cemetery turnout, and granting suffrage to felons, they can win back lost numbers. It is a sensible strategy.

The incoming throngs have no jobs, few marketable skills, no assets. No family or friends vouching for them or guaranteeing that they will not impose a burden on American taxpayers. They arrive expecting and receiving free schooling, publicly guaranteed taxpayer-sponsored health care and free hospital access, and every imaginable free public service. Meanwhile, the children of long-time California taxpayers find that they cannot get into University of California schools that have set aside protected seats for the undocumented. The Illegals further receive food stamps and welfare, and they even are assured that these are not “charitable hand-outs” but “entitlements”: It’s OK, you’re entitled. Meanwhile, virtually every California city is pocked with tent cities of homeless residents, with San Francisco streets reeking of urine, feces, and syringes, and with epidemic outbreaks in Los Angeles of Third World diseases like typhus. It is only natural that Illegals will align electorally with the Democrats who buy them off for a generation or two with the taxpayer-funded goodies that will flow their way.

This cannot be permitted to spread. This just has to stop.

Indeed it must. Our ace in the hole? Trump himself.

The most fascinating feature of the Trump era is the President’s uncanny ability to bilk the media into providing coverage that confirms the percipience of his political positions. Their 24/7 coverage of the migrant caravan, complete with images that couldn’t be better for his stance on illegal immigration had they been produced by the White House Press Office, is little short of an in-kind contribution to the GOP. Combined with the incredibly irresponsible Democratic open borders platform, the media are materially improving Trump’s approval numbers and reducing the chances that the Republicans will lose either house of Congress next week.

The media reflexively supply the public with countless images of people marching toward our border, breaking down barriers and fighting with Mexican police, and have no idea that they’re proving Trump right. The optics of the caravan are so bad for the open borders crowd, in fact, that even Trump-haters like Andrew Sullivan are advising the Democrats to adopt a more rational position if they want to prosper in the near future. He points out that the pervasive influence of social media worldwide allows ever more people to learn what life is like here and encourages them to head our way. He then spells out the political consequences for the Dems:

As we can see right now in front of our eyes, elections can turn on this.…Until one Democratic candidate declares that he or she will end illegal immigration, period, shift legal immigration toward those with skills, invest in the immigration bureaucracy, and enforce the borders strongly but humanely, Trump will continue to own this defining policy issue in 2020.

The Democrats have, thus far, failed to listen to such advice. Instead, they collectively call for the abolition of ICE and change the subject to fictitious Republican threats to their health care. They seem to believe that, combined with the usual whoppers about the GOP’s dark conspiracy to cut Social Security and Medicare, this will allow them to escape the illegal immigration issue. The Democrats are trying to divert voter attention from a huge problem they can see on their television screens every night by yammering about pre-existing conditions. Trump, meanwhile, is exploiting this blunder by reminding the electorate why immigration is broken.

As with their Kavanaugh debacle, the Democrat Socialists seem not to realize just what a catastrophe they’ve created for themselves here. Can there be anyone so blind as to think it coincidence that each and every one of their recent “causes” and campaigns, if brought to fruition, would do grave injury to this nation?

By pimping this “caravan” of American-flag-burning indigent immivaders—denouncing this country every step of the way while demanding their nonexistent “right” to cross our border illegally and start immediately leeching on Uncle Sugar for their subsistence—they’ve painted a very ugly picture showing what they’re really all about, for all Real Americans to see: destruction, disorder, and dragging this country to its knees for good.

UNEXPECTED!™

The Democrat Socialists acknowledge some home truths at last.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—After a string of mail bombings targeting Democrats ended in the arrest of a Florida man, Democrat leaders announced the commencement of a brief moratorium on calling for political violence against their foes.

Democrats said they would cease calling for violent attacks on conservatives “at least until this whole mail bomb thing is out of the news cycle.”

“Once all this blows over, we will resume demonizing our opponents and calling for mobs to harass people we disagree with in public,” said Maxine Waters at the press event. “We really thought our words would only incite violence against the right, and hadn’t really thought about it going back the other way. But now that we see how destructive and detrimental violence really is, we’ll just cool our jets for a bit.”

Yes, of course it’s the Bee, finding a way to do the impossible and satirize them again.

Problem, meet solution

The boy’s a damned genius.

You don’t fly 1000 miles away to bomb a refugee column, even if it’s 98% military-aged male invaders. If we ever do that, it gets done when they’re 20 miles away, not 1000 (and after the mid-term elections, if ever). This nonsense is just a sideshow to bigger things.

But if we decided to seize a one-mile-wide buffer 2000 miles long on their side, and invest it with troops while we build the wall, that would be reasonable.

Seizing all remittances to those countries automatically, as the fruit of illegal activity, and contributing to terrorism, would also stop this nonsense in about a heartbeat, fund the military action, and hit those countries where they live. In Mexico alone, it’s some good fraction of their yearly GDP, and if it were gone, they’d be in open revolution in about a week.

It would also cost $0 to implement Monday morning.
Demanding Congress permanently outlaw the practice to those countries would similarly be reasonable.

Telling Mexico if they want that brand new trade treaty to stand they’d better end this nonsense is also correct.
If they want to see their food prices quadruple, all they need to do is ignore us.
Once again, that’d be the cue for open revolution in Mexico.

Which would make a military buffer both prudent and necessary.
It means we could then start rounding up illegals as enemy aliens, and deport them permanently over that wall, once and for all.

27 problems solved, by Friday next, at that point, and without bombing anyone or mostly without firing a single shot.

Works for me, right down the line. Diplomad puts some more meat on dem bones:

It is a hostile act, an overtly hostile act, by the government of Mexico and those of El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. The so-called march northward is clearly funded by somebody with deep pockets and good organizational skills, and abetted by officials in those countries. The immediate victims, of course, are thousands of poor people being lied to, exploited, and put in great physical danger.  We see pictures of marchers painting swastikas on American flags and then burning them, and waving flags of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador at the head of long columns of marchers. These people apparently so hate racist, xenophobic America, and feel so patriotic about their home countries, that they are putting their lives at risk to head for the USA and get away from their non-sh*thole countries.  

The usual morons in the media are having a field day trying to blame these marches on Trump. I guess, in a way, Trump is to blame as under him the US economy rockets along and generates new jobs and rising wages for our workers, all of which serves as a magnet for the poor of the world. We should ask President Trump to stop winning for the USA, and that would, I assume, slow down the rate of marching. Right.

In other words, elect the Democrats and that will make the USA a much less attractive place to live for everybody. We could do that…or we could do what we should have done long ago: build the wall; change the immigration laws so that you can’t come here to mooch or work illegally; and punish the traffickers. By traffickers, by the way, I include the governments of Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, and the funders of these marches. Do what I long ago suggested, that until these countries begin to act as “friends,” use our military and other elements of national power to shut the border to all traffic in goods and people; suspend issuance of visas to nationals of those countries; and, of course, drastically reduce those nations’ diplomatic and consular presence in the USA. Yank us out of NAFTA, and tell those American companies who build their factories in Mexico, that doing so is a bad bet on the future. Prosecute any American individuals or organizations involved in funding, organizing, or leading these marches.

Beginning with one George Motherfucking Soros, Nazi collaborator, international financial criminal, and uber-destructive America-hater nonpareil. Deporting him to Hungary would be a suitable alternative, I guess, but a fair trial followed by a first-class hanging would indeed be better. But there’s also a problem—one you’d probably not expect, from a seemingly unlikely source:

In April of this year, Secretary of Defense James Mattis approved a memo ordering the deployment of up to 4,000 U.S. National Guardsmen to the southwestern border (provided that the governors of border states approve of the action and that the Department of Homeland Security reimburse the Department of Defense for its troubles). Yet, the DoD instituted such strict rules of engagement for the National Guardsmen that they’ve proven useless to the Border Patrol.

What’s more, the 800 active-duty troops that are being deployed to the border are not charged with providing physical support of the Border Patrol and National Guard. Instead, the Pentagon has opted to send its doctors, lawyers, and engineers. What do you think military doctors, engineers, and lawyers are going to do to turn back the human wave threatening America’s porous southwest? (Hint: they’re not going to physically turn back that caravan; they’re going to accommodate it in all likelihood!)

As I reported earlier this year, the Pentagon has already approved the Department of Homeland Security’s request to turn unused areas of large U.S. military bases along the southwestern border into tent cities. Clearly, the Pentagon has decided to engage in its own bit of policymaking, regardless of what the president has ordered — or what the American people want (and what the United States Constitution outlines).

Remember that treasonous op-ed in the New York Times written by an anonymous senior Trump Administration official detailing the effectiveness of #TheResistance from within the government to Trump?

Taken together, it is clear that the Pentagon today is simply going through the motions. It is as uncomfortable about physically protecting the U.S.-Mexico border as the Democratic Party is. Without a direct, inviolate command from the president explicitly ordering the Pentagon to take decisive actions to physically turn back the caravan, the Department of Defense will slow-walk and half-ass its response to this pending invasion — hiding behind process until the caravan has arrived, and there is no choice but to take the human mass in.

Just another indication that America’s biggest problems originate not beyond our own borders, but within ’em…which in turn means that President Trump, just as he’s said from the start, will not be able to solve them all by himself.

Anomalies aplenty

Codevilla runs down the curiouser-and-curiouser case of fake-bomb fallguy Cesar Sayoc.

During my years with the Senate Intelligence Committee, as I worked to repair this country’s counterintelligence operations, I sometimes lectured our intelligence community’s leaders on the principles of counterintelligence analysis. Prominent among these is that close attention to an event’s anomalies—to things that don’t seem to quite fit—can reveal more about the event than everything else about it. In other words, if in fact the event contains a lie, it may lead you to understand the deepest truths about that event.

The obvious account of the bomb drama is that devices were mailed or delivered to prominent critics of the Trump Administration to hurt them or to frighten them into silence.

Not originally knowing anything about who mailed those devices, or why, and assuming that the alleged perpetrator was a competent person who would have covered his personal tracks well—the way that the Soviets had deceived U.S intelligence analysts for a decade about their nuclear command post—noticing anomalies, in this case the ways in which these devices and their deliveries don’t quite fit the obvious story, was the best way of grasping the truth of the matter.

Although it is usually prudent to assume the opponent’s intelligence and rationality, the analyst had to keep in mind that an assumption is only just that.

The devices could not have caused harm, and were unlikely to have caused fear first, because they were unlikely to reach their supposed victims. They were sent through the U.S. Postal Service, which advertises that it checks all packages for explosives, or were delivered to places protected by the Secret Service or known to have other, serious security measures. A rational perpetrator would know that. By the same token he had to know that the undelivered packages were sure to draw the media’s attention.

Nothing about the devices themselves fit the main story of harm and fear. First, they were made of PVC pipe—grossly insufficient for containing an explosion to lethal force. Second, whereas package-bombs are set to go off when the package is opened, these contained outside timers, apparently unconnected to what may or may not be detonators.

But though incapable of hurting the recipients, were they meant to frighten them into silence? Believing that things so obviously harmless could frighten persons protected by world-class security beggars belief. In short, these devices’ anomalies lead the analyst to conclude that they were meant to look like bombs, aimed at a credulous press, just as the Sharopova wind tunnel was aimed at credulous intelligence analysts.

Hence, counterintelligence analysis’ first hard conclusion: Whoever the perpetrator was, he acted to harm some and help others politically, by leveraging the media. But if the devices were meant to ignite a media frenzy, who were the intended victims and who the beneficiaries?

Read it all; he doesn’t take his analysis quite where one might initially assume, and I think he makes an error in his central premise which you guys will probably be able to identify easily enough yourselves. His conclusion, though, I am in complete agreement with. Seeing as how said conclusion—that the effect achieved was the exact opposite of the intended one—is so, we can expect this fiasco of a fuckup to disappear from the national radar pretty quickly now.

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

Vote fraud: a Democrat-Socialist joint.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bombtroversy: Mitt blows up!

Of course you all know by now about the Bombgate fizzle (sorry), about which I don’t know how much worthwhile I really have to add.
Thankfully, Steyn takes his commentary in a quite unexpected direction.

Me yesterday:

I shall hold off further comment until more facts are known.

No such circumspection stayed Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney, who reacted instantly to the “suspicious packages” mailed to the Clintons, Obama, George Soros, CNN and others, and weighed in with boundless confidence:

Hate acts follow hate speech. It is past time for us to turn down and tune out the rabid rhetoric.

This is a nitwit statement even by Mitt’s recent standards, and doubtless a preview of the role he intends to play in the Senate. It is also an object lesson in the perils of Tweet-speed insight. “Moderate” “reasonable” “centrists”, like all other politicians, should take a deep breath and be mindful of the old adage: Don’t just say something, stand there.

Is it true that “hate acts follow hate speech”? To lazy types like, alas, “severely conservative” Republican Senate candidates, the logic is self-evident.

Let us stipulate that we live in awful, vulgar, witless hyper-partisan times. Does instant stupid mouthing-off on the Internet encourage violence? There’s just as much evidence that it’s a safety valve: Just as “sexting” seems to have replaced sex for large numbers of people, so venting seems to function as a violence substitute: Hey, let’s get that guy and string him up on the edge of town! Er, actually, I was thinking I’d just Tweet that he’s a f**ktard douchebag in capital letters, and then watch “Carpool Karaoke” before turning in…

I have had some small distant connection with letter bombs. They are an inefficient way of dispatching your enemies, which is why for high-profile assassinations the IRA preferred placing actual bombs in situ themselves: They did not trust the murders of, say, Lord Mountbatten, Sir Anthony Berry, Ian Gow, Robert Bradford and Airey Neave to the vagaries of the Royal Mail. Setting aside their unreliability, in the over-entouraged political culture of contemporary America there is zero chance of a letter bomb to a former president finding its target. Or even to Maxine Waters.

Sending multiple bombs that will never reach their targets is an ineffective way to kill former presidents, vice-presidents, cabinet secretaries and movie stars…but it’s such an ingenious way to “hijack the debate” that you’d almost think that was its purpose.

Whether or not that proves to be so, the pile-on by Democrats and media these last twenty-four hours confirms they’re happy to co-opt it as such: Pipe bombs? You deplorables need to pipe down.

The whole thing stinks to high heaven. Most telling? That Hillary!™, after having been sent one of these not-remotely-explosive devices, went ahead with her Florida appearance anyway, without batting an eyelash. A profile in courage, an example of fearlessness from a true leader? Sorry, no sale; I can’t see her going out there to make an entirely pointless appearance unless she was already confident she was in no danger. This sounds a lot more like it to me:

Somehow it is all too convenient, this “October surprise”. None of the named targets were really in danger, although others could have been hurt touching, picking up, or opening a package.  The same could not be said when a Bernie Sanders supporter showed up at a baseball field in Alexandria determined to kill Republicans.

Back then we weren’t supposed to link that individual with the rhetoric of Sanders and other Democrats who warned that if the Republican agenda was enacted, millions would die.

As the liberals rise up in righteous condemnation of Trump’s “toxic” rhetoric, we will be asked to forget Rep. Maxine Waters’ call for nonstop harassment of GOP players, of key Republicans being hounded out of restaurants, confronted in elevators and even in their offices and at their homes. We will be asked to forget the violent riots on college campuses to keep conservative speakers from speaking.

Of course, rhetoric does not justify a response with explosive violence, yet, as noted, for a so-called domestic terrorist attack, this scattering of suspicious packages seems too lame, too ineffective, too conveniently timed and doesn’t really pass the smell test, at least according to Rush Limbaugh…

The packages may be found to be a real threat from an obviously unbalanced individual or individuals, but it may very well also be a false flag designed to reaffirm the Democrats’ continuous slander against the GOP.

If I was a gambling man, I know which way I’d bet. Which, I have to say I’m not prepared to flatly state that I believe, absolutely and unshakeably, that this “bomb” scare was nothing more than a Democrat Socialist hoax, intended as a distraction before an election that looks more and more like ending up a drubbing for them of biblical proportions. That said, the question is: cui bono?

That question is a bit more complicated now that this hamfisted, inept fiasco appears to have blown up in their faces like all their other get-Trump buffoonery has. Hamfisted, inept buffoonery has become something of a trademark for them at this point—which hasn’t kept them from plodding right on anyway, stepping on one Sideshow-Bob rake after another. Ludicrous and over-the-top as it is, this could well be just the latest example. As Walsh says:

Left to their own devices, they’d be howling in the wilderness. But the media endorses and amplifies what otherwise would be their inchoate rage by constantly reinforcing, in ways both subtle and blatant, the narrative that the country has been illegitimately seized by reactionary forces who prevented Merrick Garland from cementing a liberal majority on the Supreme Court, then deprived the Dowager Empress of Chappaqua from her rightfully ordained rest in the Lincoln Bedroom, and now are rolling back social-justice gains that should have been legislated for all eternity. As I wrote in this space last week: they’re losing, and they know they’re losing.

They’re losing, they’re desperate, they’re clueless, and they’re incompetent. They’re also treacherous, amoral, corrupt, and shameless. It’s hardly unreasonable, then, to be extremely skeptical of this almost vaudevillian “bomb scare,” nor to suspect a Democrat-Socialist hand behind the curtain. If the whole story suddenly vanishes from MSM coverage in a week or two like Muslim terrorist attacks usually do nowadays, that’ll tell us all we need to know.

But in a sense, it doesn’t matter anyway. A genie has been let out of its bottle, and there ain’t no putting it back.

Democrats and their media allies have sanctioned violence against Republicans. They’ve defended harassment and even assaults as activism. They have embraced and celebrated hate groups. The mob culture they have brought forth is fundamentally changing the rules of American politics.

The alleged bombs should open a dialogue about the degree to which violence has become the currency of our politics. But instead the media will offer up the same tired talking points that ignore the violence of its side, while pretending that the culture of political violence in the last two years began yesterday.

It did not.

Once political terror is unleashed, it can’t be controlled or compartmentalized.

Leftists, who have written a bloody history of political terror from Europe to South America, from the Middle East and across Asia, and right back to America, ought to know that better than anyone else.

The Left has made it its mission to destroy America. This is what destroying a country looks like.

In Europe, in Russia, in Asia and in Latin America, leftist revolutions unleashed civil wars of unimaginable brutality in which ordinary men committed horrifying crimes because every norm of decency had been destroyed. The hour came when sides no longer mattered; there was no right or wrong, just murder.

The mad toll of death threats and assaults, of shootings and harassment was unleashed by the Left. The hectoring media has made millions from it. Fortunes have poured into the war chests of radical Democrats. They can make it stop. Or they can go on feeding the beast while blaming conservatives.

Once again, I know which way I’d bet. Meanwhile, the filthy Democrat Socialist scum are doubling down on making political hay out of their debacle. Exhibit A:

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) published a video on Thursday placing the blame for the bomb threats to her office — and to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama — squarely on President Donald Trump’s shoulders, despite his clear and repeated condemnation of the attacks. Waters avoided any mention of her own efforts to incite protest, or the similar statements from Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and Cory Booker.

“I think the president of the United States should take responsibility over the kind of violence that we’re seeing for the first time in different ways,” Waters declared in the video. “I think the president of the United States has been dog-whistling to his constituency, making them believe that their problems are caused by those people over there.”

The congresswoman argued that the perpetrators “are acting out what they believe the president wants them to do and the way that he wants them to act.”

Okay, I’m just gonna come right out and say it here: if the purpose behind the bombs HAD been to take Waters and the other pusbags out (doubtful), AND THEY HAD SUCCEEDED, I can’t honestly say I’d have been plunged into paroxysms of inconsolable grief over it. They’ve been attacking us for years now, again and again. They’ve followed up not by strongly, unequivocally condemning the perpetrators, but by continuing to incite them and then blaming Trump and/or Repubs for it. When directly called out on their brazen incitement, they either blithely ignore it, lie about it, or, again, blame the Right for it.

They’re only “concerned” about violence when they’re on the receiving end; the only time they bother to demand “civility” is when their own tactics get turned against them. Bottom line: the Democrat Socialist Party is A-okay with politically-motivated violence, as long as they’re the ones committing it. Violence is just another tool in the Left’s box, one they claim an absolute and exclusive right to use.

They are unalterably committed, heart, body, soul, and mind, to grinding this country under the Marxist heel. They arrogate to themselves an absolute right to rule, without reference to or regard for the consent of the ruled. They now have no tack to take, no other option left to them but violence. They will use it as and when it suits them, and do so gleefully, with neither reservation nor remorse.

They are utterly despicable, and they must be stopped.

“Annoy Liberals By Refusing To Care About Their Stupid Fake Outrages”

Well, sure, I can do that. No problem.

This may shock you, but I care less that a bunch of foreign barbarians killed a foreign barbarian supporter in a foreign country than I do about illegal alien foreign barbarians here in America killing Americans. A lot less.

I’m not pro-chopping up political opponents, which I only feel the need to state because some willfully obtuse lib jerk is going to claim my refusal to freak out over bad people acting exactly like bad people act means I support chopping up political opponents. Chopping up political opponents is generally a bad thing, though I will not hold my breath waiting for the libs to, for example, cancel their holidays in Havana because the Castro clan has butchered tens of thousands of people for preferring freedom to tyranny. 

Liberal outrage, you see, is super-selective. It only exists when there’s a related liberal policy goal it can support. And, as the Steinle family found out, it never exists where it risks disrupting our elite’s preferred narrative.

Weird, but the elite was totally mad about Donald Trump pulling out of the “We’ll pay you mullahs to get nukes slightly slower” deal and these same people are now demanding we ditch our primary Arab ally against Tehran. I mean, if I were cynical, I’d say this whole imbroglio was a steaming wheelbarrow of crap.

Oh, cynical got NOTHING to do with it, Kurt. It’s just the way things are, that’s all. Which means you might need to rethink your opposition to chopping up political opponents; it’s for sure and certain that your courteous restraint is NOT reciprocated, which may well necessitate some pre-emptive chopping up of our own, purely in self-defense, before very much longer.

Too extreme an idea?

Maybe. And then again, maybe not.

There has been a lot speculation about the Honduran Invasion over the past few weeks. The idea has been spread that it is an October surprise; that the invasion has been funded by powerful communists like George Soros. The theory has been that it is intended to damage Republicans either as a floating voting block intended to skew the elections coming up in November, or they are to create damaging optics for Republicans during the election cycle. But, what if it is intended to have a much more diabolical purpose, not before the election, but after it?

With the Democrats out of power, their prospect of impeaching Trump damaged, the Mueller witch hunt concluded without evidence to substantiate impeachment, their whole narrative destroyed, what purpose might the Honduran Invasion serve?

The answer to that is manifold and I am not interested in going into all of them or even many of them. My suggestion, based upon the typical Democrat (communist) response to being out of power, the recent invasion of up to 20,000 Hondurans with the sentiment expressed in the above picture, is that the real violence against Republican politicians and supporters of Donald Trump might begin. It is my contention that the Honduran Invasion is a fighting force being imported to do violence against citizens of the United States. Maybe not all of them will be used for this purpose, women and children have been integrated into the fighting forces as cover and subterfuge.

The value of Hondurans, Mexicans and El Salvadorans committing violence upon Trump supporters is the optics of racism that it provides to the communist narrative. Any retaliation against such violence can be easily depicted by a communist compliant MSM as racism, the Democrats favorite and most reliable smear tactic.

This mid-term election is important, not because voting solves all issues, it hardly solves any and creates more than it ever solved, but we are at a crucial time in our history, when it is being decided whether this nation capitulates totally to communism or begins the long, hard fight back to republicanism.

Right now, today, we are in a hot civil war, but it is not general, it is specific and centered largely around certain social issues. We are in a fight against the Deep State and exposing as much of it as can be is only possible with a Republican Party dominating Congress, not because Republicans are the answer, but because SOME Republicans are part of the answer.

The hot civil war will become more general once the Democrats are further diminished in their power.

You just THINK we’ve seen crazy from the Democrat Socialists already; as I’ve been saying all along, we ain’t seen NOTHING yet. As for TL’s idea about the Hondurans being a Democommie “fighting force,” that might seem a bit much to some. Myself, I am far, far beyond the point where I’m willing to put anything at all past the treasonous commie scum, or capable of being surprised by anything they might do.

Showdown in the desert

Just do it.

President Donald Trump tweeted early Thursday morning that he will send troops and close the border if Mexico lets the latest caravan of thousands of migrants marching north reach the boundary between the two nations.

“The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!” Trump said in the first of a series of impassioned tweets on the growing crisis.

Trump said that “in addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught — and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!…”

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) tweeted video Wednesday of what he described as cash being given to women and children to join the march. “Soros? US-backed NGOs? Time to investigate the source,” the congressman said.

Time to arrest “the source”—Soros, and you know it as well as I do—and give him a fair trial for treason, followed by a first-class hanging.

I expect Trump will be extremely reluctant to actually send troops to close the border for political reasons, which is at least somewhat understandable; he no doubt knows that such a move will in turn send hordes of dimwit Leftist agitators scampering down there too. Those enemy combatants will do their level best to interfere with those protecting our southern border by just about any means you could imagine and probably some any decent person couldn’t, up to and including violence.

Our soldiers will attempt to retain control of the situation through nonviolent means; the ROE for this situation will probably require it, actually. Nonetheless, the chances of one or more of the shitweasel protesters getting seriously hurt or even killed in such a dangerously fraught situation is by no means slim. Should such a thing happen, you can expect a sudden explosion of violent protests in urban areas across the country.

And then things get sporty. And very, very messy.

The beat(ing) goes on

Another day, another round of Democrat Socialist assaults.

The Minnesota Democratic Party has suspended a spokesman for calling for violence against Republicans even as two GOP candidates have been assaulted in suspected politically motivated attacks…

The suspension came days after Minnesota state representative Sarah Anderson was punched in the arm after spotting a man destroying Republican yard signs. She said the attack left her scared, and her attacker only desisted when she fled to her car and threw it in reverse.

Shoulda thrown it into D, stomped the gas, and run his ass over. Twice, just to make sure.

“It was just insane. He was charging at me, saying, ‘Why don’t you go kill yourself?'” Anderson told the Washington Free Beacon. “To have someone physically coming after you and attacking you is just disheartening.”

The Plymouth Police Department investigation into Rep. Anderson’s alleged assault remains ongoing. A spokeswoman confirmed the department had identified a suspect, but declined further comment.

Anderson was not the only GOP candidate attacked. First-time state representative candidate Shane Mekeland suffered a concussion after getting sucker punched while speaking with constituents at a restaurant in Benton County. Mekeland told the Free Beacon he has suffered memory loss—forgetting Rep. Anderson’s name at one point in the interview—and doctors tell him he will have a four-to-six week recovery time ahead of him. He said he was cold cocked while sitting at a high top table at a local eatery and hit his head on the floor.

“I was so overtaken by surprise and shock and if this is the new norm, this is not what I signed up for,” he said.

Nobody did. But this is what we’ve got. Daniel says:

It’s not just radical views, it’s radical tactics. The left is growing tired of working within the system. It’s turning into a revolutionary mob bent on destroying its political opponents, economically, politically, culturally and physically.

“Turning”? We’re well past “turning,” safe to say. Here, have another.

A Democratic operative for American Bridge 21st Century, a group founded by David Brock and funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, was arrested Tuesday after the female campaign manager for Nevada GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt accused the operative of grabbing and yanking her arm and refusing to let go.

Kristin Davison and other officials for the Nevada attorney general’s campaign said the “battery” left her “terrified and traumatized” — and with bruises on her neck and arms.

“Politics is a little bit aggressive these days, but this is just insane. I’ve never seen anything like it,” Davison, 31, told Fox News on Wednesday.

According to the Laxalt campaign and local law enforcement, Wilfred Michael Stark III, 50, was arrested by the Las Vegas City Marshals on Tuesday evening and remains in custody in the Las Vegas city jail.

“He grabbed my right arm, my leg was lodged between the door and the wall. He twisted my arm, and contorted it behind my back,” she explained. “I was scared. Every time I tried pulling away, he would grab tighter, and pull me closer into him.”

Davison said Stark pulled her head into his chest, bruising her neck, and held her there for several minutes. She said it “felt like an hour.”

“I was scared and screaming ‘stop—you’re hurting me,’” she explained.

Davison said Stark warned Laxalt, saying, “Adam, there’s only one way you can make this stop.”

Quite true—by shooting Stark’s worthless thug ass in the fucking head. Twice, just to make sure.

This next one doesn’t involve actual physical violence. Yet.

Courtney’s Restaurant and Catering owner Tom Courtney said he’s experienced a strong social media backlash because he rented the event room at his Mt. Juliet business to U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn on Saturday.

Courtney said he’s been called a Nazi, an abuser, had his life threatened and said his staff has been verbally attacked.

Hundreds of posters on social media said they would boycott his restaurant because it was a local venue to Blackburn, who is running for a seat in the U.S. Senate against former Democratic Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen.

“I did not think anything of it,” Courtney said. “I run a business. We were going to serve a hundred-plus people.”

Courtney said he initially didn’t endorse the candidate, and just was being a businessman, but after what he’s been through he can support only Blackburn.

“I’m one who votes for the person, not the party,” he said. “But with everyone saying they are going to boycott my restaurant because Marsha came here to treat my employees and customers, I can’t even fathom people like that.”

Courtney used social media to defend himself, writing “This is a family restaurant. It sells food. When people come in and order food, we sell it to them. We book events for all sorts of things including charities and business alliances, social organizations and such. We do NOT discriminate on race, religion or political affiliation. We have all manner of people eating in our establishment every day. They sit beside each other as neighbors and get along just fine. We are a family restaurant and we treat everyone as family with integrity and respect. Our employees’ political affiliations are their own. We have both parties represented and we work shoulder to shoulder each day. We would appreciate you treating us with the same respect as we treat each of you.”

Not gonna happen, because they not only don’t respect you—they don’t respect or even acknowledge your right to disagree with them, or to associate in any way with anyone who does. Nor may you enter into a purely-business relationship with dissidents from the True Faith, no matter your own views, not even if it’s a one-shot deal.

In case anyone on our side is still somehow not getting it: THEY HATE YOU. They want you either SUBJUGATED, or DEAD. They are not your friends, not your neighbors, not your countrymen. They are not “the loyal oppposition.” They are the enemy. They cannot be debated, reasoned with, compromised with, or accommodated in a manner fair and/or acceptable to both sides. They must be CRUSHED, utterly. Their megalomania, their greed, their insatiable lust for unchecked power has now brought us to the point that, to adapt a great old line, this country isn’t big enough for the both of us. Too bad and all, but…well, there it is. And there’s no avoiding the fact any longer.

Glenn says: “You don’t hear of Republicans targeting places like this for hosting Democrat events.” No, but it’s probably time we should. Otherwise, this is never going to end.

Gettin’ uppity

Kanye has left the plantation.

After rapper Kanye West’s appearance with Donald Trump at the White House, the progressives unleashed their cable news and twitter bloodhounds to pursue West and drag him back to the Democrat plantation. Commentators who relentlessly police language for racial slurs no matter how barely detectable, suddenly were reveling in old demeaning insults like “minstrel show” and “token,” new ones like “Negro” (which I’m betting few of us know is now a slur), and idiotic ones like being a spokesman for “white supremacy.”

Know what struck me in the photos I’ve seen from that meeting? Trump and West genuinely seem to like one another personally, to enjoy each other’s company. They came across as just having a high old time together, without self-consciousness or pretense. Could be I’m all wet, of course; after all, I wasn’t there. But that was my take, for whatever that’s worth.

The tragic irony of this progressive distortion of black character is that it reinforces all the old racist tropes justifying segregation. The message sent with every cry of racism, whether it’s “disparate impact” or “cops killing unarmed black males,” is one of black weakness and inferiority. The old-school racists attributed this inferiority to nature. Today’s repackaged racism blames “implicit bias” or “institutional racism” or the all-purpose “legacy of slavery” to reinforce blacks’ helplessness and dehumanizing lack of agency.

Meanwhile, the old virtue of self-improvement through education and discipline is dismissed as “acting white.” The segregationists used to call this acting “uppity,” which referred not just to self-assertion or behavior outside the racial code, but also to speaking the King’s English or using manners or acting with decorum or being too fond of reading. In the end, however you camouflage it, all these sophistical excuses still add up to inferiority, the assumption that black people lack the virtue and character to better themselves and fight against joblessness, drugs, promiscuity, vulgarity, crime, and the slaughter of blacks by their black “brothers.” That’s why they need their progressive wards and patrons.

More astonishing is how this narrative insults those generations of blacks who, despite confronting violence ranging from beatings, race riots, and lynchings, to the daily indignities and demeaning slights of legal segregation, still steadily improved their lot. Jason Riley of The Wall Street Journal not long ago summarized this improvement documented by Thomas Sowell––another independent, free-thinking black intellectual despised by the progressive race industry.

Between 1890 and 1940, for example, black marriage rates in the U.S. where higher than white marriage rates. In the 1940s and ’50s, black labor-participation rates exceeded those of whites; black incomes grew much faster than white incomes; and the black poverty rate fell by 40 percentage points. Between 1940 and 1970—that is, during Jim Crow and prior to the era of affirmative action—the number of blacks in middle-class professions quadrupled. In other words, racial gaps were narrowing. Steady progress was being made. Blacks today hear plenty about what they can’t achieve due to the legacy of slavery and not enough about what they did in fact achieve notwithstanding hundreds of years in bondage followed by decades of legal segregation.

In the post-’60s era, these positive trends would slow, stall, or in some cases even reverse course. The homicide rate for black men fell by 18% in the 1940s and by another 22% in the 1950s. But in the 1960s all of those gains would vanish as the homicide rate for black males rose by nearly 90%. Are today’s black violent-crime rates a legacy of slavery and Jim Crow or of something else? Unfortunately, that’s a question few people on the left will even entertain.

Banishing from the public square that “something else” required a cadre of black “leaders” and “intellectuals” who perpetuate the identity politics that redefined blacks as permanent victims of ineradicable white racism. Leftist and progressive black intellectuals and professors, hirelings of progressive Democrat institutions like media and universities, have waxed fat on the privilege and perks of repeating this demeaning narrative of permanent black victimhood and dependence. They patrol the speech of anyone challenging it, helping to construct the regime of political correctness, a secular Inquisition that censors and censures those who stray from or challenge its doctrines. Just ask any conservative or libertarian or even moderate liberal black intellectual what the price is for showing independence and autonomy in their thinking––they will be demonized, and their blackness impugned.

What the Democrat-Socialists have done to the black family and black middle class is nothing less than a crime. If more and more black Americans are finally realizing it and walking away in disgust, well, good on ’em, I say. And if Kanye can be part of that long-overdue awakening, good on him too.

Update! Stipulated: Kanye is a bit of a nut, as Goad notes. Still:

But as wickety-wack as all that was, what had black pundits calling him a coon and a House Negro and an Uncle Tom and a race traitor and a sellout was his repudiation of every last political preconception that blacks have been spoon-fed and have willingly swallowed for the past couple generations—those “progressive” policies that have led to welfare dependency and broken homes and ghetto war zones. For as dumb and flighty as Kanye West tends to be, his chief sin was to say things that a black person is simply not supposed to say. The following are all quotes West made during the Oval Office press conference:

You know, people expect that if you’re black you have to be Democrat. I have a — I’ve had conversations that basically said that welfare is the reason why a lot of black people end up being Democrat.

And I said, “You have to bring manufacturing onshore.” And not even shore; into the core. It’s not about the border; it’s the core of Adidas. And Chicago is the core of Middle America. And we have to make Middle America strong.

You got Levi’s, the greatest jeans company in the world, making their jeans in Vietnam…We have to bring jobs into America because our best export is entertainment and ideas. But when we make everything in China and not in America, then we’re cheating on our country and we’re putting people in positions to have to do illegal things to end up in the cheapest factory ever: the prison system.

And we also, as black people, we have to take a responsibility for what we’re doing. We kill each other more than police officers.
 
One of the moves that I love that liberals try to do — the liberal would try to control a black person through the concept of racism, because they know that we are very proud, emotional people.

The problem is illegal guns. Illegal guns is the problem, not legal guns. We have the right to bear arms.

I can’t find a single factual error in there. It all seems eminently sensible—moderate, even. But the media’s Official Negroes were so inflamed by West’s comments, it’s almost as if they needed some Preparation H rubbed on their souls.

Of course they did. The Democrat Socialists have taken the black vote for granted for years and years, and they know that if they lose any significant portion of it they’re toast. They simply can’t have someone as well-known and admired as Kanye talking sense like this. They can’t afford it. The boy needs hisself a whuppin’, so’s he’ll know his place.
