The Hoax that Is TrumpRussia

It’s always the same pattern: Big Splashy CNN headlines followed weeks later by an inconspicuous debunking of the Big Splashy Headline.

That story followed on the heels of another CNN “exclusive” about how “Russian-linked Facebook ads targeted Michigan and Wisconsin.”

This story began: “A number of Russian-linked Facebook ads specifically targeted Michigan and Wisconsin, two states crucial to Donald Trump’s victory last November, according to four sources with direct knowledge of the situation.”

It went on: “Some of the Russian ads appeared highly sophisticated in their targeting of key demographic groups in areas of the states that turned out to be pivotal.”

Had CNN finally found evidence that Russia tried, and might have succeeded, in swinging the election for Trump?

Hardly.

It was up to the Washington Examiner’s Byron York to provide the relevant facts and context.

He found that of the 3,000 Russian ads that Facebook turned over to Congress, most of them ran after the election and so could hardly be part of any “meddling.” The vast majority didn’t mention the election or any candidate. A quarter of them weren’t seen by anybody.

What’s more, out of those 3,000 ads, only a tiny handful targeted Michigan and Wisconsin, nearly all of them ran in 2015 — well before Trump was nominated — and most had fewer than 1,000 impressions.

In other words, there was nothing to justify CNN’s treatment of the story.

On the other hand, there is some evidence that the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton were taking bribes from Russia.

They also obtained an eyewitness account — backed by documents — indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow, sources told The Hill.

The racketeering scheme was conducted “with the consent of higher level officials” in Russia…

Rather than bring immediate charges in 2010, however, the Department of Justice (DOJ) continued investigating the matter for nearly four more years, essentially leaving the American public and Congress in the dark about Russian nuclear corruption on U.S. soil during a period when the Obama administration made two major decisions benefitting Putin’s commercial nuclear ambitions.

 

Once Again, You’re Probably a Racist

We’re just two weeks out from Halloween. (Silver Shamrock!) And as we know, every holiday must be used as an occasion for virtue signaling and head tilty lecture from our leftist “betters.” So, here ya go… 8 Halloween Costumes That Are Actually Racist, Even if You Might Not Realize It.

The TL:DR version is… Gypsy, Voodoo priestess, Day of the Dead (unless you’re Mexican), Nazi, Rastafarian, Egyptian Goddess, Geisha, Border Wall.

Most of those costumes are lame anyway. And would a Nazi really be so bad if it were a ‘Dead Snow’ inspired zombie Nazi? Probably.

I bet it’s still OK to dress as a Communist, though.

In case you’re wondering, dressing up as Obama is OK if the costume celebrates his coolness and awesomeness, but if it is in anyway mocking or critical, then you’re a racist.

I did not make that last part up.

A Bill Too Radical for Moonbeam?

Apparently, there is such a thing.  The California legislature passed a bill that would have required religious organizations to bow down before the leftist state. Governor Jerry Brown vetoed it.

AB 569 “would have prohibited churches, religious colleges, religious non-profit organizations, and pro-life pregnancy care centers from having faith-based codes of conduct with regard to abortion and sexual behavior.”

Remember when the progressive left used to be against “legislating morality?” Doesn’t seem like that long ago, does it?

Apple Diversity Chief Makes Truthful Statement, Is Forced to Recant

Denise Young Smith, the humanoid in charge of promoting diversity at Apple, said something perfectly common sensible at some tech conference. This is what she said.

There can be 12 white blue-eyed blonde men in a room and they are going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.

This sent the social justice wankers of Silicon Valley to their fainting couches.

The phrase appears to allow for Apple to make diversity and inclusion hiring decisions based solely on diversity of thought. There’s nothing inherently wrong with diverse thinking, but treating it with primary importance eliminates the many benefits of a racial-and-gender-diverse workforce and many see it as, frankly, a complete cop-out in trying to solve a very real problem. 

“Diversity of thought” has long been a lever used by critics of the concept of D&I work to push back against meaningful diversity efforts.

Diversity of thought is anathema to the social justice left. Everyone has to think the same way, and those who think differently must be silenced and punished. The only diversity that matters is skin tone, national origin, genitalia, and preferred use of genitalia.

Young Smith has been forced to denounce herself, and reaffirm that she loves Big Sister very, very much.

Last week, while attending a summit in Bogota, I made some comments as part of a conversation on the many factors that contribute to diversity and inclusion.

I regret the choice of words I used to make this point. I understand why some people took offense. My comments were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it. For that, I’m sorry.

More importantly, I want to assure you Apple’s view and our dedication to diversity has not changed.

Understanding that diversity includes women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and all underrepresented minorities is at the heart of our work to create an environment that is inclusive of everyone.

There, now she’s thinking just like everybody else.

Diversity.

They All Knew

The Narrative the left is trying desperately to spin on Harvey Weinstain is that only a very few people knew about his behavior until courageous women, helped by courageous liberal journalists, broke the story last month. Hardly anyone in Hollywood knew. They were like German civilians who lived near Dachau and Birkenwald. “We had no idea what was going on in the camps. We noticed there weren’t as many Jews around, but we just thought they were on vacation or something.” Like Hillary, they were “shocked and appalled” when they “learned” what was really going on.

Here’s Courtney Love in 2005, blowing another hole in the “Nobody Knew” Narrative.

Here’s Kate Winslet, wanting you to know she was totes courageous for not thanking Harvey Weinstain when she won an Oscar in 2009.

Here’s Meryl Streep in 2017, sanctimoniously pontificating about Hollywood’s moral obligation to oppose those who abuse their power.

“This instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life ‘cause it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

She was not talking about Harvey Weinstein.

She wouldn’t have dared.

Big Government at its Finest

This article explains the beauty of Democrat Run Progressive Government.

1. New York City has a bunch of teachers in their Government schools who are utterly incompetent, and even potentially dangerous.
2. They cannot fire them because of the powerful Teacher’s Union, so they pay them $150 Million a year to do nothing.
3. But now, to save money, they are planning on putting these incompetent and potentially dangerous people back into classrooms, and now the very, very best part
4. They are going to place them in poor and minority schools.

And, of course, the problem could be “solved” if the teachers union just got their hands on another nine-figure sum of taxpayer money.

Just wait until these people are running Health Care.

Democrats Moving Hard Left; Republicans Becoming More Centrist

Hey, it’s not me that’s saying it, it’s a study by the left-leaning Pew Research Center.

Pew found Democrats have moved substantially left on a variety of issues while Republicans’ views remain relatively constant.

“In nearly every domain, across most of the roughly two dozen values questions tracked, views of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents and those of Democrats and Democratic leaners are now further apart than in the past,” Pew noted.

NRO has a nifty little graphic that shows just how much the Democrats have shifted hard left.

Emblematic of this hard-left shift is the talk that ancient Senator Dianne Feinstein — a doctrinaire liberal — may be challenged by hard-left California hairpiece Kevin de Leon (of “ghost guns that fire 30 magazine clips per second” fame.) De Leon is so hard left he makes Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren look like … um… someone just moderately left-wing. Susan Collins, maybe.

When Dianne Feinstein was first elected to the Senate, she was decidedly left-leaning, Someone like Kevin de Leon would have been considered part of the radical fringe. He’s now quite the mainstream of a party whose activist core believes that equates Free Speech with White Supremacy and due process with rapists.

Personally, I’d rather see de Leon as President… of the People’s Democratic Republic of California.

Feminists Furious as More Men Adopt the Mike Pence Rule

No man in business or academia with an ounce of common sense is going to let himself be alone with a woman who isn’t his wife in the current social climate. A single allegation of inappropriate behavior — whether legitimate or not — can and will destroy a man’s career. This is the climate Feminists have created as their movement morphed from demands for social equality into a litigious Cult of Man-Hatred and quest for political power.

Now, they’re angry (who am I kidding, feminists are always angry about everything and always lecturing men on how to behave) because men are unwilling to set themselves up as victims.

The New York Times reports that men are responding to the Cautionary Tale of Harvey Weinstein and others like it by avoiding their female colleagues, particularly those in a subordinate position. Instead of thinking about the discriminatory practices that allow Weinsteins to grow like persistent fungus, they’re making them an even bigger feature of the workplace. Men fear being accused of sexual harassment, because it would ruin their lives.

Boo freaking hoo. You know what else doesn’t leave you? Being held back in your career because your manager is too scared to make eye contact with you because he’s afraid you’re gonna tell some story about how he harassed you. Or he might feel compelled to grab your boobies, and then he’d lose his job! You did this, Woman.

Yes, actually, you did. It’s not the cautionary tale of Harvey Weinstein men are responding to; it’s the word-of-mouth and internet-shared anecdotes of what men are experiencing in the real-world; stories the media won’t cover because they don’t fit the Narrative.  Everybody knows someone who was accused of something by a female co-worker or colleague.

Let’s face it; for some women, falsely accusing men of bad behavior is a resume enhancer. If it weren’t for false accusations, Mattress Girl would be doing her bondage act in a seedy strip club instead of a Fancy Pants Art Museum.

Update: Heh

The Rotting Stench of Our Moral Elite

The leftists are trying to spin a narrative about the Harvey “C’mon the Ficus” Weinstein that somehow, it’s a story of brave women and brave liberal media operatives exposing a great wrong. The facts do not support this narrative. The ‘brave women’ kept quiet for decades about it because their careers were more important. Ronan Farrow is one who exposed the story and, though it’s an easy mistake to make, Ronan Farrow is not a woman. Nor is the Democrat Media Complex covering itself in glory. NBC News had the story as long ago as 2016, but spiked it. No way were they going to break a story about a major Democrat donor being a sexual predator in the middle of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.  The New York Times had the story in 2004 but again, chose to spike it to cover for a wealthy, powerful Democrat.

According to Kurt Schilchter, the real Weinstein Narrative is that while America’s leftist elite portray themselves as our moral superiors, the “Conscience of Our Nation,” they are, in real life, a bunch of self-serving scum-buckets.

They knew. They all knew, and they didn’t care. Meryl Streep’s Sophie’s choice was between her career and her conscience, and let’s just say she didn’t agonize over her pick. Others took his cash to shut up, leaving other ingenues to his sweaty clutches because getting the gigs trumps sisterly solidarity every time.

Hillary Clinton managed to put down her super-sized Chardonnay goblet long enough to issue a 38-word comment/cliché on her pal and benefactor’s icky adventures in gardening. In her defense, she was probably thinking, “I was married to Bill. This guy’s an amateur.”

So why should we normal Americans respect these people? Why should we submit to being constantly scolded, lectured, and treated as morally bankrupt simpletons anymore?

We shouldn’t, and we aren’t, not anymore.

All I can say is ‘Welcome to the Party.’ A lot of us got fed up with Hollywood’s Pious Sanctimony a long time ago.

Killed and Gutted

A wise man once summed up how the Social Justice Left works:

1. Identify a respected institution.
2. kill it.
3. gut it.
4. wear its carcass as a skin suit, while demanding respect.

Today, the Boy Scouts of America accelerated its swift decline into a left-wing social justice outfit. I mean, let’s be blunt here… this is *not* about creating opportunities for girls. Girls are now vastly overprivileged compared to boys in educational opportunities and in terms of societal institutions catering to them. This is about taking an American institution and turning into another organization devoted to left-wing indoctrination.

Get ‘Em While They’re Young

A schoolteacher in Georgia gave her sixth graders a lesson and quiz in sexual identity.

The middle school’s health teacher assigned a quiz that defined 10 “sexual identity” terms, such as gay, lesbian, and transgender. The quiz required the sixth graders to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.

This was a health class. Perhaps, she should have asked students to define “barebacker,” “versatile,” and “power bottom.”

There’s something just plain creepy about adults who get off on teaching twelve year olds about sex. But aside from that, why even spend time and resources teaching this? Every hour a teacher spends teaching, “there are 86 genders, and they are all valid, can you name them all (extra credit if you identify as more than one)” is an hour not spent teaching math, science, or history. You can bet Chinese schoolchildren don’t spend class time learning “to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities.”

The educational value of this is nil, but it makes teachers feel like good little Social Justice Warriors to devote class time to trendy social issues instead of practical learning.

Next week, she’ll be teaching how to kneel for the National Anthem while avoiding knee injuries.

Workers Required to Attend Party Meetings; Document Party Loyalty

Resident Advisors at Virginia Tech have been ordered by their Party Superiors to attend LGBTQQIP2SAA meetings and document their attendance, or be denounced as counter-revolutionaries.

At a recent staff meeting, the RA’s supervisor told them that they were required to attend an LGBTQ+ event during October, as it is “LGBTQ+ history month.” They must choose an event to attend, invite their residents to come with them, stay for the entirety of the event, and take a picture to document their attendance.

If someone refuses to attend an event, disciplinary action should be expected, the RA told Campus Reform. Such disciplinary action usually includes verbal and written warnings and possible termination.

Collusion

Tennessee Republican Marsha Blackburn announced her run for the Senate yesterday, but the announcement was blocked on Twitter because they objected to the part where she called out Planned Parenthood for trafficking in dismembered baby parts (which leftists contend is a myth even though multiple Planned Parenthood executives and employees were caught on video discussing how they traffic in dismembered baby parts).

You know who works at Twitter? A former spokesman for far-left Democrat Senator Kamala Harris, who previously used her position of power as California Attorney General to persecute the investigative team that exposed Planned Parenthood’s practice of illegal trafficking in dismembered baby parts.

Planned Parenthood gets over $500M in taxpayer subsidies every year, and last year spent $38 Million on political activities intended to help elect Democrats.

Interesting, yes?

Be Careful Out There

A guy in Britain is on trial for deliberately infecting four men with HIV. He apparently used Grindr to hook up with them, and then after pressuring them into unprotected sex, sent text messages taunting them, “I have HIV LOL. Oops!

Rowe has been charged with purposely infecting four men with HIV and trying to pass the virus to six more from October 2015 to December 2016 in Brighton, England, where he subsequently lived, according to The Guardian. He was first arrested by Sussex police in February 2016 after allegedly infecting two men with HIV.

During a court appearance Thursday, prosecutors said that Rowe met partners on Grindr, a gay dating app, and then would ask them to have unprotected sex with him, telling them he did not have HIV, according to the International Business Times. If his partners insisted on using condoms, Rowe allegedly ripped or tampered with them so they wouldn’t be effective.

When you dig into what the British press is reporting, it sounds like this guy is a real sociopath (albeit with really good, Justin Trudeau style hair) who refused treatment for HIV and bullied men into having sex with him.

What’s really nucking futs about this is that if this creep lived in California, he would face less jail time for deliberately infecting people with HIV (six months) than he would for offending a transgendered person for using the “wrong” pronoun (one year).

California recently reduced the penalty for deliberately infecting an unsuspecting person with HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor. This was very happy news to the segment of the gay community that celebrates deliberately infecting unsuspecting people with HIV. Chad Felix Greene, on the other hand, thinks this is a bad thing.

[W]hen faced with real-life situations in which HIV+ people intentionally lie about their status and expose or infect others [the LGBT Left] hold tight to their narrative. The story of Michael Johnson, for example, only served to fuel their argument. In 2015 Johnson was convicted of infecting one man and exposing four others. He lied about his status online and intentionally exposed all five men. The Human Rights Campaign spun the story as one of racial oppression and homophobia
[…]
I have argued that if every HIV+ gay man alone, even 80% of us, took our medications properly, informed our partners and made responsible sexual choices while vowing to never allow our own virus to escape into the world, HIV would be eliminated. We are the primary cause of HIV in the country and we could stop it.

Sadly the LGBT media is more focused on genuinely outdated ideas of ‘stigma’ and social injustice than on eliminating HIV.

Read the whole thing. He also addresses something I’ve made note of previously. That the gay left, in their zeal to “de-stigmatize” HIV infections swung all the way to “if you refuse to have sex with HIV-infected men, then you’re an ignorant bigot Trump-supporting racist homophobe.” Like you’re actually supposed to feel bad about protecting yourself from an incurable disease.

Two Harveys

Harvey Feirstein — the old, gravel voiced gay queen — is apparently being confused with Harvey Weinstein — the old, creepy, hetersexual predator. And he doesn’t like it.

That’s right! Be mad at Harvey, not HARVEY! Guys, We’re Mad @ Harvey WEINSTEIN, Not Harvey FIERSTEIN!

Here’s my thing though. Harvey Feirstein is fairly prominent in the Hollywood and New York theater circles, right? And he has been for several decades, right? And apparently, the fact that Harvey Weinstein was a creepy pervert who sexually abused women was well-known in ‘The Industry.’ But nobody in Hollywood said a word about it until after the rest of America found out. Now, they’re telling us how ‘mad’ they are. But for all of these years, Harvey Feirstein and the rest of ‘The Industry’ maintained a code of silence.

Apparently, exposing women to sexual abuse was a fair price to pay for protecting one’s career from a wealthy and powerful Hollywood executive. Right, Ashley Judd?

Apparently, only Christians give up their Constitutional Rights when they open a business. Gays (and Mohammedans) can discriminate against anybody they want.

The video shows the Christian group attempting to reason with the coffee shop owner, but to no avail. In fact, it only seemed to make him angrier according to The Liberator, and soon the owner :
“So you’re not willing to tolerate our presence?” Sutherland asked.
“Will you tolerate my presence?” the man responded. Sutherland assured him they would. “We’re actually in your coffee shop,” he said.
“Really?” the owner demanded. “If I go get my boyfriend and f*ck him in the a** right here you’re going to tolerate that?”
“That would be your choice,” Sutherland answered. But the owner would not be persuaded. “Are you going to tolerate it?” he asked again. “Answer my f***ing question! No, you’re going to sit right here and f***ing watch it!”
“Well, we don’t want to watch that,” said Caleb Head, another abolitionist.
“Well than I don’t have to f*cking tolerate this!” the man said. “Leave! All of you. Tell all your f*cking friends, don’t f*cking come here.”

My favorite part is when he threatens to sodomize his boyfriend in front of them. The LGBT activists used to claim it wasn’t about buttsex, but this guy seems pretty sure… it’s about buttsex

Harvey Weinstein: Excellent Progressive

Posted by V the K at 3:10 pm - October 6, 2017.

Bump: Harvey Weinstein was an even better progressive Democrat than I thought:

I was sent, on Election Eve 2000, to cover a book party [Weinstein] was hosting, along with my colleague Andrew Goldman.

Weinstein didn’t like my question about O, there was an altercation; though the recording has alas been lost to time, I recall that he called me a cunt and declared that he was glad he was the “fucking sheriff of this fucking lawless piece-of-shit town.” When my colleague Andrew (who was also then my boyfriend) intervened, first calming him down and then trying to extract an apology, Weinstein went nuclear, pushing Andrew down a set of steps inside the Tribeca Grand — knocking him over with such force that his tape recorder hit a woman, who suffered long-term injury — and dragging Andrew, in a headlock, onto Sixth Avenue.

 Such was the power of Harvey Weinstein in 2000 that despite the dozens of camera flashes that went off on that sidewalk that night, capturing the sight of an enormously famous film executive trying to pound in the head of a young newspaper reporter, I have never once seen a photo. Back then, Harvey could spin — or suppress– anything; there were so many journalists on his payroll, working as consultants on movie projects, or as screenwriters, or for his magazine.

At least he let the reporters live. “Rookie mistake,” said Hillary.

In 2015, [Weinstein’s]company distributed “The Hunting Ground,” a documentary about campus sexual assault. A longtime Democratic donor, he hosted a fund-raiser for Hillary Clinton in his Manhattan home last year. He employed Malia Obama, the oldest daughter of former President Barack Obama, as an intern this year, and recently helped endow a faculty chair at Rutgers University in Gloria Steinem’s name. During the Sundance Film Festival in January, when Park City, Utah, held its version of nationwide women’s marches, Mr. Weinstein joined the parade.

What a great guy. How perfectly emblematic of the Democrat Left’s commitment to women’s equality and fundamental dignity.

He also funded a program for aspiring female directors at USC.

What a guy.

I mean, apart from that one thing.
