What Would the Obamacare Death Panels Say About John McCain?

Senator John McCain was recently diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. An eighty year old man requiring expensive treatment is something the architects of Obamacare thought was too expensive. In fact, Ezekiel Emmanuel (brother of Rahm Emmanuel and an Obamacare architect) is on record saying that providing medical care to anyone over the age of 75 was a waste of resources.

In left-wing countries with socialized health care that leftists adore, it is standard procedure to deny care to severely ill people in order to save money.  Rational? Perhaps, but not quite the selling point leftists use to advance the scheme of state-run health care.

On a related note, the left’s favorite fake scientist says that all old people should die so the Global Warming Agenda can be implemented without resistance.

Victims Gotta Victim

Mother Jones has a lecture about how non-profit social justice organizations for LGBTs and racial minorities discriminate against… um… LGBT’s and racial minorities.

When it comes to professional advancement, even within explicitly LGBT-focused organizations, LGBT people of color face more challenges compared to their white counterparts or straight people of color.

In addition to the racial barriers faced by LGBT people of color, roughly 21% of LGBT respondents said that their sexual orientation had negatively affected their career advancement. They pointed to great disparities in LGBT non-discrimination laws in states across the country and reported levels of fear and frustration about the way anti-LGBT attitudes have affected their careers. The report noted the “intensity of the write-in responses… reflected a real problem with biases against LGBTQ people in too many nonprofits.”

So, leftists working for organizations whose entire raison d’etre is to kvetch about discrimination… kvetch about discrimination in the organizations they work for.

This is so delicious it must be fattening.

Is Trumprussia just Russian propaganda?

Thought for the Day: Trumprussia undermines the United States of America. And yet, day after day, really for a year now, with NO results to speak of, or even evidence for it, the Left keeps pushing it. Obsessively.

Why? Are the Left’s opinionmakers colluding with Russian intelligence, against America? Are George Soros, David Brock, CNN, MSNBC and the Clintons colluding with Vladimir Putin? Are the Russians laughing their asses off, when they see it? Cui bono?

When Facts Don’t Fit ‘The Narrative’

Black, Mohammedan, immigrant cop shoots a white woman in Minneapolis. Washington Post covers the story while never once mentioning the cop is black, Mohammedan, or immigrant. (Not to mention, not much outrage over this police shooting. I guess not all lives matter.)

They do, however, make a pitch for Australian-style gun confiscation.

Same deal at Vox. 2000 word story, no discussion of the cop’s race, religion, or background. But again, another pitch for outlawing the private ownership of firearms.

This is a result of cultural and policy decisions made by the US that have made firearms far more available in America than most of the world. For American police officers, this means they not only will encounter more guns, but they expect to encounter more guns, making them more likely to anticipate and perceive a threat and use deadly force as a result.

Cops shooting people justifies disarming law-abiding civilian gun-owners. Ah, leftist logic.

Want Trumprussia? Psst, over here kid

The one and only Greg Gutfeld puts it all together:

And That’s How You Get Senator Kid Rock

We are in a culture war. The left has been deploying full arsenal… lies, deceit, attacks, and more recently actual violence… while the right has played nice. Evan Sayet explains why nice ain’t cutting it any more.

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency. We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.

So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.
So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights.

It’s like I have been saying, before you attack Donald Trump and the “alt-right,” consider what the GOP Establishment and the old right have accomplished in the last 20 years. They got us into wars they never intended to win and spent money they never intended to pay back. Meanwhile, the radical left took over the media, the schools, the bureaucracy and the courts. It doesn’t matter whether the Republicans were collaborating with the radical left or merely wimping out to them; the result was the same.

Our only option to preserve liberty is to fight back. It is sad that it has come to this.

Exactly What I’ve Been Saying

Filed under: Pop Culture

Mark Steyn agrees with me, the only reason the left has to remake classic white male characters into trendy new genders and races is because the left utterly lacks the creativity to create new compelling characters.

I do regard this sort of thing as, to coin a phrase, cultural appropriation – in the sense that what our age mostly does is appropriate the cultural creations of greater talents and make them into something other. The Mighty Thor becomes a woman, Spider-Man turns Afro-Hispanic, Green Lantern goes gay; even in the Archie comics, Archie dies taking a bullet for his gay best friend, and Jughead comes out as asexual.

The clever thing is to create Archie (as Vic Bloom and Bob Montana did in 1941) and Captain America and Iceman, and turning them into modular furniture to be repositioned round the room at will – now female, now gay, now Hispanic – is an achievement of a considerably lesser order. As Brendan O’Neill points out, it’s also shallow – although very suited to an age in which Facebook offers you a choice of 50 gender identities.

And when the ratings tank, they’ll blame misogyny. It almost makes you think the writers are building a cushion to excuse poor performance. Blaming the prejudices of the audience is easier than admitting you’re a hack.

It must suck to be Out

Is “Out Magazine” the home of depressed, dour scolds? They’ve been popping that way lately, but you be the judge.

First, they laid it on thick about Milo’s supposed low book sales:

Nobody is Buying Milo Yiannopoulos’ Memoir, Dangerous…

In today’s fake news, alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos is claiming his book, Dangerous, has sold more than 100,000 copies.

The problem with that number is that it’s not real. Nielsen Bookscan, which monitors book sales through almost all outlets, has reported book sales for the former Breitbart editor are much, much lower. Since launching on July 4, Dangerous has sold 18,268 copies in the US and 152 in the UK…

A google search shows other left-wing outlets, like Salon and The Guardian, joining in the schadenfreude.

The problem is, their numbers are shaky. Milo is selling fine. He’s entering the best-seller lists at anywhere from #5 to #1; the first 100k run is spoken for and they’re printing more; Amazon has to ship his book slow (when they even have it). As to the 152 UK copies, the book isn’t even on sale there; a minimum of 152 UK buyers paid for international shipping. Fake News, indeed.

Next, via Breitbart, Out Magazine Encourages Readers to ‘Drop’ Gay Republican Friends

“We drop friends all the time for a whole variety of reasons—they messed with our loves lives, they lied, they weren’t supportive—so why do some people think it’s such an outlandish idea to dump them for their political views?” asked actor, singer, and writer Michael Musto in his column for OUT Magazine…

Musto goes on to admit that his social media experience has been more “gratifying” since he’s decided to block any user who disagrees with him…

Here’s a clue for you, Out: By all means, drop us. Here on the liberty-loving Right, we do believe in freedom of association – and we won’t miss you in the least 😉

Fun with polls

You remember how in 2016, Establishment pollsters would over-sample Democrats to conclude that Hillary was “ahead” and “a lock to win”.

The charitable interpretation is cognitive dissonance: the Establishment simply couldn’t believe that Trump had real support, and accordingly, their pollsters adjusted-down his numbers. A cynic would go further, saying the Establishment pollsters were out to drag Hillary across the finish line by making her seem inevitable (depressing Republican voters).

Either way, Breitbart says they’re still at it.

…a Washington Post/ABC News poll show[s] Mr. Trump’s approval ratings languishing at 36 per cent…

The poll was performed by AbtAssociates…[whose] board members include former [staffers of] Bob Dole, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, World Bank, and Deloitte…

WaPo/ABC polling obviously predicted the U.S. election incorrectly…

Since this time last year they have over-represented Democrat voters in their studies. For this latest one, 35 per cent of their respondents were Democrats, 23 per cent were Republicans, 35 per cent were Independents (who in turn lean towards voting Democrat)…

[other] demographic questions they asked are not included in the data…[except it’s clear that] Young cell phone users made up the dominant part of the poll, and cell phone-only households made up nearly half the interviews.

So, the poll was skewed to younger, trendy Democrats. Yet this same poll still shows the Democrats’ weak appeal:

…just 37 per cent of respondents think the Democrat Party “stands for something” while 52 per cent say they simply stand against Trump. WaPo buried this in paragraph 12 of 19 while CNN didn’t mention it at all.

Breitbart’s article goes on to quote the late Christopher Hitchens at length, about how polling is a racket and the power elite’s tool to manipulate public debate (for example, stigmatizing certain leaders or viewpoints as “unpopular”).

P.S. – Related vaguely: I don’t follow Bret Easton Ellis much but apparently, he and his boyfriend (who are hardly conservatives) are sick of Fake News and equally, sick of liberals who make no sense because they never get outside their bubble.

My dinner partner on Saturday said she had never heard that Comey admitted the NY Times had gotten a series of stories wrong. She thought I had made that up. When I told her the world isn’t this — gesturing around the dark opulence of The Sunset Tower — and that the divide is real, she dismissed it with Trump’s approval ratings without acknowledging the media’s approval ratings are lower than Trump’s. She pointed out that MSNBC was killing it in the ratings and I told her that Maddow and Hannity are basically neck-and-neck any given night–and yet I was thinking, ‘I don’t watch either one!’ So why am I even engaging in this?”

Scott Adams pointed this out.

  • Don Lemon is said to like vodka (Russian) martinis with a lemon twist. He could have chosen a different TV name but he went with Lemon to dog-whistle the link.
  • Don Lemon has never released his tax returns! How do we know he’s not getting Russian payments? There’s no evidence that he has, but what are we supposed to think? How do we know he hasn’t? What is he hiding?
  • Lemon has interviewed Russian nationals – as part of his job, even! There was value exchanged – it’s beyond question that Lemon met with Russians, intending for them to help him in his job. So what if nothing came of it? It’s all about his intent.
  • Lemon has never filled out any forms which would disclose his Russian contacts and collusion! Why not? Has he lied, in claiming to be a loyal American? Looks that way. Can we believe anything he says?

With that much smoke, there’s gotta be a fire. We must investigate Don Lemon immediately, and exhaustively.

Because we could easily find something out that we don’t know, now. He could be committing treasonous crimes that we’ve just seen no indication of, yet. After all, Lemon has failed to call for a war with Russia. Isn’t he obviously serving Putin’s interests?

Doctor Who Gets Ghostbusted

Posted by V the K at 8:59 am - July 18, 2017.
Filed under: Pop Culture

The producers of Doctor Who have decided that the next iteration of the titular character will be… oh, what is the PC term… a person with a vagina. This is pretty much what happened after the announcement.

Feminists and Beta Male Nerds: “OMG, Dr. Who is going to be a woman. This is the most awesomest thing in the history of scifi TV.”

Me (and others): “Whatever, it really depends on the quality of the writing and how they develop the character. If it becomes a boring social justice lecture, I’m not interested.”

Feminists and Beta Male Nerds: “OMG! Your male fragility can’t handle a woman in the role of The Doctor! It’s driving you crazy! We drink your tears, penis-bearer!”

One thing is for sure; if the audience for the show declines, the producers can now blame their losses on misogyny. And probably Russian meddling.

In other news of no consequence: DC Comics Reboots Snagglepuss as ‘Gay, Southern Gothic Playwright.’

Filed under: Climate Change (Global Warming)

An Australian member of the Academic Caste is saying that in order to fight Global Warmening, we (meaning you) are going to have to give up property rights.

Western Sydney University Researcher Louise Crabtree, writing for The Conversation, thinks in a world torn by climate disasters ownership of private property may have to be sacrificed, to be replaced by a system of housing cooperatives or a roaming right to reside.

Reminds me a bit of that bit of utopian fantasy about the world of the future where there is no privacy, and no one owns anything, because magic. Ms. Crabtree’s thesis is in the interest of ‘Climate Change,’ we will have to change (i.e. abandon) our notion of private property in favor of that used by “indigenous peoples” (i.e. people who lived as nomadic hunter-gatherers with life spans of 30 before they appropriated elements of European civilization). “Some say that First Peoples might have a grasp of property dynamics that is more suited to the times we are entering,” she writes. I have a sneaking suspicion who this “Some” who are saying this is.

So, this Louise Crabtree must be a professor of some form of science relating to the Earth’s complex systems of climate and weather, right? Nope. Well, she must be an economist, right? Nope, wrong again.

Louise was awarded her PhD in Human Geography from Macquarie University in 2007 and has been with Western Sydney University since 2007. Her research focuses on the social, ecological and economic sustainability of community-driven housing developments in Australia; on the uptake of housing innovation in practice and policy; on complex adaptive systems theory in urban contexts; and, on the interfaces between sustainability, property rights, institutional design and democracy. Her recent and ongoing projects focus on two practical areas funded by a series of competitive research grants—community land trusts and participatory mapping methodologies. Both are being used to simultaneously foster social innovation and equity outcomes on the ground, and explore and build theory on multi-stakeholder governance, decolonisation, property law, resilience and citizenship.

So, she lives on piles of burning Government grant money is trying to link her pseudo-scientific field to climate change in hopes of getting more grant money. And it will probably work.

Does this concept that property rights must give way to the ‘Common Good’ sound at all familiar?

“The theory of Communism may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.” – Karl Marx, Communist Manifesto.

Anybody wanna try and claim that ‘Climate Change’ isn’t a cover for instituting global Marxism?

Students troll teacher who totally does not see how she might deserve trolling

Some of the students, allegedly, festooned the classroom with pictures of Trump, a map of his Electoral College win, “Obama – you’re fired”, and a respectful, accurate statement of Trump’s policy positions.

All pretty innocuous, except for one thing: someone made fun of her gap teeth (which they should not have done – whoever it was; note that we cannot make any assumptions about whom).

Her overall response? Calling her students “racist”. Repeatedly.

I wonder how many times she tried to use her position to cram Social Justice Warrior politics down her students’ throats? I can’t know but, reading between the lines, I wouldn’t be surprised if she did it 24/7.

The Deep Thoughts of Sally Kohn

The Truth Finally Laces Its Sneakers

Even left-leaning Snopes can’t go along with the lies leftists are spreading about PDT:

  • “Donald Trump’s budget eliminates Meals on Wheels.” – That was a lie.
  • “At the G-7 summit, Donald Trump flipped his middle finger at the Italian Head of State.” – This was a lie.
  • “The Pope was smiling when he met Obama, dour when he met Trump.” – This was a lie.
  • “The White House photoshopped pictures to make Trump’s hands look bigger.” – This was a lie.
  • “Trump says Americans have no right to protest him.” – This was a lie.
  • “Trump eliminates LGBT from the 2020 census.” – This is a lie.
  • “Donald Trump misattributed an Irish Proverb.” – That was a lie.

The entire episode is a remarkable example of something bordering on collective hallucination, most likely brought on by confirmation bias. Here hundreds of thousands of people — including professional journalists working for influential news organizations, and a chat show host with more than three million nightly viewers — literally heard Trump say something he never said, in most cases probably because it confirmed a pre-existing image of the President as a poorly read, culturally ignorant buffoon.

And those are just a few examples of the lies leftists are spreading. To do an exhaustive list, per the Snopes article, would be too time-consuming and take up too much space.

Of a piece with this, CNN — the network that gets so angry when PDT calls them fake news — last week published a “A second-by-second analysis of the Trump-Macron handshake” as part of their bottomless quest to use anything and everything, no matter how trivial, to attack the president.

Queer Refugees for Pride

This is a pro-gay Facebook channel, which a Breitbart article linked to in telling a story of Muslims abusing gays. From Breitbart’s article:

Residents of an asylum home in Germany beat a Serbian couple almost to death earlier this week, according to a gay rights activist…

Gay rights campaigner Javid Nabiyev…said that although many consider Serbia to be a safe country, the individuals who were beaten had to flee the Balkan nation because their own family members had threatened violence toward them.

He went on to say that they attempted to hide their sexuality from the other asylum seekers – a move which was recommended by social workers…

The couple had contacted Nabiyev many months before the attack to say they felt uncomfortable in the asylum home. Nabiyev attempted to have them transferred to a different home but was unable because authorities saw no health or safety danger…

The man who carried out the attack was not named, and Nabiyev said that, while he was arrested by police and questioned, he was released back to the same asylum home afterwards.

The attack is the latest in a number of attacks on homosexuals in asylum homes or by asylum seekers, many of whom are Muslim…

To recap:

  • A Serbian gay couple had to flee Serbia.
  • Germany housed them in an “asylum home”, meaning, with a whole bunch of Muslim refugees.
  • They felt under threat for their orientation. The enlightened, tolerant, progressive German social workers told them to not to flaunt it. They didn’t. They still felt under threat. The enlightened, tolerate, progressive German social workers apparently didn’t give a crap.
  • The threat turned out to be real: Muslims beat them to a bloody pulp.

I’ll say this much for the Germans: The above is only one side of the story. Still, it’s a plausible story and I thought it worth noticing.

RELATED (to Europe’s Muslim crisis): Italy wants to unleash 200,000 refugees on the rest of Europe. Because the rest of Europe just isn’t lifting a finger to help.

Senior Italian government figures are threatening to issue European Union visas to 200,000 migrants, granting them unrestricted access to the bloc’s borderless Schengen Zone…

“Letting migrants travel once they reach Italy would create a real problem for our EU neighbours. But I hope it would force France to confront the migrant problem head on,” the government minister said…

In 2015, at the height of the migrant crisis, the EU pledged to redistribute 160,000 African and Middle Eastern migrants based in Italy and Greece to other EU member-states signed up to the bloc’s common asylum policy – but as of June 9th, 2017, only 6,896 migrants have been relocated from Italy.

Let’s be honest about the real solution to these problems. Here it is.

  1. Vote Obama and Hillary out of office. They shattered Libya and Syria, stimulating the present crisis.
  2. Seize the ships of the NGOs who are still illegally transporting the refugees from North Africa into Italy.
  3. If a time machine can’t be built to go back and get Obama and Hillary to not viciously shatter entire nations for no good reason, then, do what we can to fix Libya and Syria now. Finally,
  4. Ship the refugees back to northern Africa and Syria.

Is all this about George Soros and David Brock?

I mentioned looking forward to Sharyl Atkisson’s new book, The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote.

It came. I’m not far into it, but it seems pretty good. I already knew some of what she has to say, but the organized wealth of details makes the cake.

Chapter 2 is on David Brock and his Soros-funded empire. As you probably know, Soros-Brock have Media Matters and a vast array of other organizations, meant to seem independent (but not), with armies of paid trolls that astro-turf Twitter, the blogosphere, the media pages and employees, etc. in order to plant their favored narratives and terms, crush their enemies (and disfavored narratives/terms), and generally get the Controlled Media to do Hillary’s bidding – oops sorry, their bidding.

I have no doubt that the Soros-Brock armies are a big part of the Trumprussia hysteria. Meanwhile, Atkisson suggests that a lot of terminology is spread by them. She suggests that the Soros-Brock armies established climate change (when Global Warming didn’t work on people anymore), progressive (for liberal), and the over-use of racist, white nationalist, alt-Right, microaggression, body shaming, white privilege, etc.

Many know that David Brock was a rightie in the 1980s-1990s and was the chief agent of smearing Anita Hill. (Who deserved a little of it, at least, in that she had helped smear Clarence Thomas.) In the late 90s, Brock transitioned to extreme Clintonite, and hooked up with Soros for funding.

It’s funny but…the late Nineties / early Naughties are about when I started transitioning to the liberty-loving Right, after noticing that the Left was getting more silly, dishonest and hysteria-prone – which I thought the Right had been too much of, up to that point. And Milo has also expressed the idea that in the 90s, the Right was too much into saying nasty ridiculous things and he would have been anti-Right back then, but today the Left is much worse (so Milo has to be anti-Left).

Could it be that Milo and I each felt – and rejected – the creepy, hateful, dishonest spirit and work of David Brock, as it traveled from Right to Left? Without knowing what it was?

And the current, widespread distrust in the media – is that also about 2 decades of the baleful influence of Soros-Brock, boomeranging?

Bernie’s Wife update

A couple weeks back, we noted that:

Bernie Sanders’ wife is under FBI investigation for possible fraud after she exaggerated (some would say lied) to get her employer, bankrupt Burlington College, a $10 million bank loan.

The loan was for Jane Sanders’ ill-advised plan to expand the college. Arguably, she bankrupted the college? Also, some say that Senator Sanders may have pressured the bank for the loan, and that some of the $10 million may have gone to cushy jobs for family and friends, or Jane’s $200k severance when she left.

Natch, Bernie has said it’s all a partisan witch hunt, how dare they go after his wife, it’s so low and vile, yadda yadda. But

  1. The FBI started the investigation under Obama.
  2. Judicial Watch has obtained records showing that Jane Sanders, for one, evicts disabled people who get in her way.

    [Jane’s land] purchase included a [Roman Catholic] facility that served as a group home for disabled people and, under the terms of the deal, Jane was supposed to negotiate the transfer of the disabled residents before the school took over…

    [But] In a lengthy letter to the attorney (Todd Centybear) representing the group home for the disabled Jane indicates that she’s having trouble evicting the 16 residents from their building…She writes: “It is simply not fair to expect the College to continue to carry the burden of the expenses associated with housing both your population and ours until February 2012.” The home for the disabled was being leased from the diocese and Jane was supposed to help relocate the residents, not evict them. The exchange shows, not only Jane’s heartlessness, but also her incompetence as the college president for not ensuring the negotiated transfer of those disabled people before the school took over the property.

If she’s ever exonerated, I’ll try to wrap up loose ends by posting on that.
