Denial Is Not Just A River In Egypt

You’ve probably heard about the EgyptAir aircraft that didn’t make it to Cairo. There has been a lot of speculation about whether the crash was a result of the actions of terrorists. The discussion has been going on between realists who say, “It sure looks like terrorism”, and the ‘Dreamers’ who are determined to blame something other than Islamists.

egypt air plane

Firmly in the corner of the second group is the New York Times. Unwilling to mention the possibility that terrrorists did the job that killed 66 people they tell us this was a coincidence:

“EgyptAir Was Aware of Threats to Security, Including One Scribbled on Plane”

Debris from the EgyptAir crash

Debris from the EgyptAir crash

First line in the NYT coverage:

CAIRO — In an eerie coincidence, the EgyptAir jetliner that plunged into the Mediterranean on Thursday was once the target of political vandals who wrote in Arabic on its underside, “We will bring this plane down.”

How can we possibly rely on a media like this to provide us with real news?

‘Imagine’ – The Dream Of Utopia

John Lennon wrote the song. In it he put all his dreams of a perfect world. He dreamed of a life without God or Satan, a world without violence or killing, a world without hunger or possessions. He dreamed of a perfect world without competition.

He was wrong – or stoned. His dream forgot the human emotions of lust, greed, and avarice. He thought people could become perfect, but we can’t.

How many of you know the words to his song? All of them?

“Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man”

It has become an anthem for socialists and other layabouts. But every time, without exception, his method has been tried it has resulted in hunger and death. In some cases the death toll was in the millions. In every case some strong man has co-opted the dream and turned it into a nightmare under his control.

communist_genocide

Today we are seeing the beginning of another nightmare in Venezuela.

emptyShelvesVenezuela

The people there have begun eating street animals and some are stealing from others. As a result, gangs of vigilantes are dispatching hard justice on the thieves. The people are angry. Soon the state will move to stop the people. Then the killing will start in earnest. Mr. Maduro has failed but he doesn’t want to release his control.

Again, every single time Lennon’s dream has been tried it has failed. But some people still ‘Imagine’. They are fools.

Another Good Reason To Avoid Target Stores

There is an active movement to boycott Target for political reasons. Even if you don’t support boycotts you might consider staying away from Target because of stuff like this.

It’s no wonder the store chain is suffering greatly reduced sales, causing their share price to plummet.

Target Suing Man Who Saved Teen Girl From Stabbing In Store”

Target-ap-640x480

When she was sixteen, Allison Meadows was shopping in an East Liberty, Pennsylvania, Target store when Leon Walls rushed into the outlet and stabbed her.

With the assistance of surveillance video, Walls was convicted of attempted homicide for his attack on the girl.

The only reason the girl did not suffer more injuries is because Michael Turner interceded and, along with several other men, confronted Walls. Turner himself chased Walls out the store with a baseball bat.

[…]

According to the company’s filing, Target says Turner and several others chased the suspect toward the store’s entrance after the attack on the girl. The store insists Turner put other shoppers at risk with his actions.”

Black Lives Matter 101

““Blackness” Matters”

blm310

Rachelle Peterson writes this in the publication of the National Association Of Scholars. It is a result of her attending a five day course in April at what is called ‘The New Black School’.

597baa_6a79ddb46e314715881447d0fbbe5e0b

The raised, clenched fist indicates that the course is somehow connected to socialism or communism. Ms. Peterson outlines the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement.

What does the Black Lives Matter movement want? After all the “demands” on all the campuses; all the protests on all the city streets; and all the coverage in the national media, you might think the answer is obvious. Perhaps it is. Black Lives Matter activists want attention and they want political power.”

No surprise there. But there seems to be some disconnect about their message. But within the movement, things are more complicated.

Some participants fiercely argue that America needs to change by embracing “diversity.” Others just as fiercely argue that what is needed is a cohesive form of Black Nationalism that shuns white society. According to this second view, the only way to convince people that “black lives matter” is to reaffirm the importance of “blackness” itself. What is blackness? The advocates find that rather hard to say. And to make matters even more confusing, some of the participants in Black Lives Matter enunciate both views at once. They want to be “included” in mainstream society while at the same time expressing contemptuous rejection of that society.”

Sounds rather childish to me.

‘Splain This, Bernie

Bernie Sanders continues to support socialism even though there are thousands, perhaps millions, of excellent arguments that it always ends in failure. Today the New York Times has a piece on the failure of socialized medicine in Venezuela.

“Dying Infants and No Medicine: Inside Venezuela’s Failing Hospitals”

Just one of the horrific images at the Times

Just one of the horrific images at the Times

By morning, three newborns were already dead.

The day had begun with the usual hazards: chronic shortages of antibiotics, intravenous solutions, even food. Then a blackout swept over the city, shutting down the respirators in the maternity ward.

Doctors kept ailing infants alive by pumping air into their lungs by hand for hours. By nightfall, four more newborns had died.

“The death of a baby is our daily bread,” said Dr. Osleidy Camejo, a surgeon in the nation’s capital, Caracas, referring to the toll from Venezuela’s collapsing hospitals.

The economic crisis in this country has exploded into a public health emergency, claiming the lives of untold numbers of Venezuelans. It is just part of a larger unraveling here that has become so severe it has prompted President Nicolás Maduro to impose a state of emergency and has raised fears of a government collapse.”

Unfortunately, not once in the news report is blame laid where it rightly belongs, with socialism.

Racism In The White House

Susan Rice has shown herself to be loyal to Barack Obama. She has also shown us that she has no original thoughts. She is the representative of the White House who went on five Sunday television talk shows to tell the American people that the attack on the US compound in Benghazi, Libya was a result of an obscure internet video that disrespected Islam’s Prophet Mohammad. The story was proven to be a lie but she went ahead with it as instructed.

Now she says the US security agencies are unreliable because they are, “Too white”. There are two things that can be understood from this comment.

First, she didn’t come up with the notion herself. It came from her superior like everything else she says. My guess is Valerie Jarrett sent her out to say it.

Second, the problem with excessive whiteness causes just one problem. The agencies are not controlled by the President. If there were more black faces in them they would follow his lead anywhere just as she has done. Just as Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, etc. have done.

“White House’s Susan Rice: U.S. national security agencies are too white”

Susan Rice

Susan Rice

In a White House often accused of being stacked with loyalists, President Obama’s national security adviser said Wednesday there are too many white people in key government posts, endangering national security because they think alike.

Speaking at Florida International University’s commencement, Susan E. Rice, who is black, said a diversified government workforce is more likely to yield “better outcomes” than a predominantly white one.

Referring to criticism that the U.S. national security workforce is “white, male and Yale,” Ms. Rice told the graduates, “In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.”

I Can See How That Would Happen

Actually, it’s a normal reaction from a guy who discovers that the cute ‘Girl’ has a pecker. What’s not normal is the complaining from someone who has made a choice that will bring nothing but difficulty to his/her life.

In the comments section of the article someone asks if this is an article from The Onion.

“Transgender girl says she is rejected by straight guys for ‘having male parts'”

Claire, before and after

Claire, before and after

Transgender teens Claire, Devon, Arin and Katie have set out to expose the harsh reality of modern, teen relationships.

Appearing in a new BBC Three documentary, Young, Trans and Looking for Love, they let viewers see a glimpse of their lives as they struggle to find love.

The doc shows the moment Claire, from Virginia, meets a guy that she likes, only to be rejected by him as soon as he finds out she was born a boy.”

Now Fat People Are ‘Oppressed’

starving child

In a world where people in third world countries are dying from starvation, fat American students claim they are being oppressed by society.

A self-proclaimed fat activist, Virgie Tovar, promoted the idea that overweight people are an oppressed class at a University of Minnesota event called “Dispelling Myths: Fat, Fatphobia, and Challenging Social Stereotypes.”

Fat activism” puts overweight individuals into a category with other groups of people who claim to be oppressed. It puts the blame of being fat on society as a whole instead of the individual.”

I Don’t Think I’ll Buy A Copy

Will Jenner use the flag or the medal to cover its man parts?

“Caitlyn Jenner set to pose nude in Sports Illustrated”

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated noted Jenner’s selection for the award didn’t come without criticism, however. Bob Costas of NBC Sports called the choice “a crass exploitation play, a tabloid play” on the Dan Patrick Show before wishing her “all the happiness and peace of mind in the world.”

SI’s reported decision to feature Jenner on the cover with nothing but a flag and her medal is probably going to generate similar backlash. But clearly, she’s decided that isn’t going to prevent her from continuing to use her influence to promote the rights of transgender people.”

Yep. Greens Say Everything Is Bad.

It kills me. Really. Some greens like Willie Nelson have been touting biodiesel as the Earth-friendly way to power your tour bus. Now some Euroweenie has made a ten minute name for himself by writing an article that says the stuff is worse than regular diesel.

“Biodiesel worse for the environment than fossil fuels, warn green campaigners”

Soy biodiesel at a US service station.

Soy biodiesel at a US service station.

Instead of reducing them, using biodiesel in transport will increase polluting emissions by 4%, the same as putting an extra 12 million cars on the road in 2020, green campaigners have said.

Biodiesel is touted as one way to decarbonise the EU’s transport sector. But, according to NGO Transport and Environment (T&E), using it is actually worse for the environment than traditional fossil fuels.”

BBC: “Rise in CO2 has ‘greened Planet Earth'”… And That’s Bad

The writer starts with an incorrect premise:

“Carbon dioxide emissions from industrial society have driven a huge growth in trees and other plants.”

greened the earth

A new study says that if the extra green leaves prompted by rising CO2 levels were laid in a carpet, it would cover twice the continental USA.

Climate sceptics argue the findings show that the extra CO2 is actually benefiting the planet.

But the researchers say the fertilisation effect diminishes over time.

They warn the positives of CO2 are likely to be outweighed by the negatives.”

Noonan: “That Moment When 2016 Hits You”

Peggy Noonan writes a regular column for the Wall Street Journal. A lot of people think because she writes there she is a conservative. She’s not. She’s an emotional, self-important twit who was captivated by Barack Obama during the 2008 election.

In this essay she reveals that she just noticed that the 2016 election is important for the country.

noonan

“‘I felt a wave of sadness,’ said one friend. This year’s politics have that effect on a lot of Americans.”

I looked up and saw Hillary Clinton yelling on TV and switched channels. Breaking news, said the crawl. A caravan of Trump supporters driving to an outdoor rally in Fountain Hills, Ariz., had been blocked by demonstrators. The helicopter shot showed a highway backed up for miles. No one seemed to be in charge, as is often the case in America. It was like an unmovable force against an unmovable object.

I watched dumbly, tiredly. Then for no reason—this is true, it just doesn’t sound it—I thought of an old Paul Simon song that had been crossing my mind, “The Boy in the Bubble.” I muted the TV, found the song on YouTube, and listened as I stared at the soundless mile of cars and the soundless demonstrators. As the lyrics came—“The way we look to a distant constellation / That’s dying in a corner of the sky / . . . Don’t cry baby / Don’t cry”—my eyes filled with tears. And a sob welled up and I literally put my hands to my face and sobbed, silently, for I suppose a minute.

Because my country is in trouble.

Because I felt anguish at all the estrangements.

Because some things that shouldn’t have changed have changed.

Because too much is being lost. Because the great choice in a nation of 320 million may come down to Crazy Man versus Criminal.”

Madam, you are no fighter. You are a crier and an enabler. You have no interest in saving the country. You will grieve momentarily and then praise yourself publicly for doing the right thing. You are a coward. It is people like you who have allowed this decline. You appropriated the bully pulpit that is your weekly column and showed Americans… nothing. You adopted no positions and told us that was how we should be.

Shame on you for helping weaken the will of good people.

Sam Cooke Wrote The Anthem For Today’s Education System

Dec. 14, 2012; Patrick Deneen..Photo by Matt Cashore/University of Notre Dame

Patrick J. Deneen teaches political theory at the University of Notre Dame.

“Res Idiotica”

My students are know-nothings. They are exceedingly nice, pleasant, trustworthy, mostly honest, well-intentioned, and utterly decent. But their minds are largely empty, devoid of any substantial knowledge that might be the fruits of an education in an inheritance and a gift of a previous generation. They are the culmination of western civilization, a civilization that has forgotten it origins and aims, and as a result, has achieved near-perfect indifference about itself.

[…]

But ask them some basic questions about the civilization they will be inheriting, and be prepared for averted eyes and somewhat panicked looks. Who fought in the Peloponnesian war? What was at stake at the Battle of Salamis? Who taught Plato, and whom did Plato teach? How did Socrates die? Raise your hand if you have read both the Iliad and the Odyssey. The Canterbury Tales? Paradise Lost? The Inferno?

[…]

Our students’ ignorance is not a failing of the educational system – it is its crowning achievement. Efforts by several generations of philosophers and reformers and public policy experts whom our students (and most of us) know nothing about have combined to produce a generation of know-nothings.”

“It Depends On What The Definition Of ‘Is’ Is”

That is a real quote from former President Bill Clinton. He was on the hot seat and was parsing his language by throwing out an outrageous comment to distract his questioners.

Now the Obama administration is trying the same deflection tactic.

“Obama Administration Tells Supreme Court ‘Lawfully’ Doesn’t Mean ‘Legally'”

scotus-immigration

Lawfully” does not mean “legally.”

Welcome to what Solicitor General Donald Verrilli told the Supreme Court on Monday is the “immigration world.” Or, more accurately, welcome to the new world President Barack Obama — through his solicitor — is asking the Supreme Court to join him in declaring.

It is a world that contradicts the law of noncontradiction. It is a place where something can be and not be at the same time. It is a place of illogic — and lawlessness.”

Obama and his flunkies are still, determinedly, trying to stop the use of the word ‘Illegal’ to describe undocumented aliens. From ansympathetic distance their argument looks like the words of fools. When you get closer the description becomes even more correct.

Islamic State Executes 250 Women For Refusing To Become Sex Slaves

This is an obvious effort to frighten other captured women and girls, to convince them that they must become sex dolls for the sadistic fighters of the Islamic State.

We know how IS slaughters its captured, throws people accused of homosexuality from tall buildings, stones women accused of being raped, and beheads people who may be Islamic but are not pure enough. These girls know it as well. This group of them has chosen quick death over mutilation and snuff sex from blood thirsty heathens. They will not be the last to make that choice.

When faced with two bad choices choose the least bad. It’s human nature.

Not surprisingly, the National Organization for Women, NOW, has no mention of this atrocity at its site.

“The victims had all been told to accept ‘temporary marriages’ to fighters”

Two young Yazidi women

Two young Yazidi women

At least 250 girls have been executed by the Islamic State (IS) in Mosul, because the young women refused to become sex slaves.

ABNA news agency reported that a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official from Mosul, Said Mamuzini, said that life is too hard for the women who live in the IS controlled Iraqi city. “At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to IS’s request” he said.”

Sanders Supporters Want Free Stuff But They Don’t Want To Pay For It

Nearly 7 million Americans have already cast a primary ballot for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary, hoping, in part, that the self-professed socialist would make their lives easier with programs like near-universal healthcare and free college for all students.

The only catch is that they want someone else to foot the bill for everything.

Vox recently conducted a study ,with the help of the polling firm Morning Consult, to determine how much more supporters of the Vermont Senator would be willing to pay in taxes in order to enact his healthcare and college proposals.”

Why Are American Parents Not Enraged?

The Obama administration is pushing the country into a depth of depravity that that we have never seen before. They are calling you and me evil and civil rights violators if we oppose our little girls being exposed to sexual predators. A few years ago, as RD Walker has reminded us, anyone who said it might come to this was laughed at and called a crank. “It could never come to that”, they said.

But here it is. Individual states are passing laws to try to help protect their children. Wealthy, left-wing, bandwagon jumpers like Bruce Springsteen are opposing safe kids. He’s not alone. It is a manifestation of evil that is coming directly from the oval Office.

Why are American parents not incensed? We should be enraged that there could even be a possibility that this idiocy could occur. Have we been so beaten down, so frightened of being called a nasty name, that we will no longer act to protect the ones we love the most? It took far less than this to get millions to attend Tea Party rallies in far-away places like Washington DC.

One could say that this should start in America’s churches. Okay, but it should start somewhere. Church pews are filled with families. Dads and moms care for their kids. We should show it. We should rise up and demand that they not be subject to the danger that this politically correct madness will bring.

“Obama Administration Says Men Entering Girl’s Locker Rooms Is A Civil Right”

josh earnest

State’s like Tennessee and to a certain extent North Carolina and Mississippi have a long history — even over the last couple of generations — of working through questions of civil rights. President Obama has talked on a number of occasions about the important progress that our country has made with regard to civil rights,” Earnest said. “This is a good illustration that the fight for civil rights is not over.”
