Leftists Cannot Abide a Free Press

The Castro Regime in Cuba routinely imprisons journalists. Hugo Chavez shut down all opposition media outlets as the socialist dictator of Venezuela. Barack Obama spied on journalists. And we all hear the constant chorus on the left demanding that FoxNews — the one major news network that is occasionally critical of Democrats — be shut down.

In California, the Democrat Party has permanently consolidated its power through a combination of flooding the voter rolls with third-world immigrants and rigging the political system to ensure that no Republican will ever again be elected to statewide office (there was no Republican on the ballot for California senator last year) and there will never be a Republican majority in the legislature. California Democrats have even changed the state’s referendum process to give the Democrat-run state Government more control; giving politicians and lobbyists the power to modify proposed ballot initiatives to better suit the Party’s interests.

The California Democratic Party holds all power in the state, and its members run the political spectrum from far-left to radical-left.  So, naturally, they are following the example of leftist regimes everywhere and shutting down opposition journalism.

Yesterday California charged Daleiden and Merrit with a whopping 15 felony counts based on their undercover videos — released through the Center for Medical Progress — showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing, among other things, harvesting and possibly even selling the organs of aborted babies. The heart of the indictment (14 of the 15 counts) is the claim that Daleiden and Merritt wrongly recorded alleged “confidential communications” between complete strangers at public conferences and at public restaurants.

California’s case not only fails on the merits, it reeks of selective prosecution. There is no shortage of examples of concealed-camera videos in California exposing scandalous behavior (the Federalist’s Sean Davis has been tweeting them since the indictment), often in the arena of animal rights. In 2014, a group called Mercy for Animals released an undercover video that “allegedly show[ed] widespread animal abuse and cruelty at one of California’s largest duck farms.” Authorities reportedly responded to the video — by investigating the farm.

Making undercover videos as part of an investigation has been a part of standard journalistic practice for decades. Just recently

Obviously, the only people the California Democratic Party are targeting are those who do stories that are in opposition to the Democrat Agenda.

The message of this indictment is clear, “If you go against The Party, you will be prosecuted.”

So far, not a single journalistic outlet has protested against this infringement on a free press or the public’s right to know.

This is what persecution looks like and all Americans should be infuriated.

In Iowa, yet another male college student is railroaded because of dubious “sexual assault” charges, denied basic Constitutional and statutory protections, subjected to a kangaroo court run by radical university bureaucrats that denied him the opportunity to present exculpatory evidence, and of course convicted and sentenced without any semblance of due process. Oh, and this time, they punished his dad for coming to his defense.  (And this is all because Obama was a tyrant.)

Meanwhile, in Maryland, the illegal immigrants who raped a fourteen-year-old girl are availing themselves of the “she was a slut and she wanted it” defense.

If you can’t hear the outcry from feminists, it’s because it was drowned out by the sound of Hillary Clinton cackling because she pioneered this technique.

This seems like an odd way to fight “sexual harassment” but…. whatevs.

Subway bosses in Mexico City have fitted plastic penises onto seats in a bizarre campaign to raise awareness of sexual assault.

The smooth shape of some plastic seats on the billion-passenger network has been replaced with the sculpted shape of a male body.

The upper half of the seat is fitted with a chest, nipples and a belly – while the lower half is given legs, and a prominent, flaccid penis.

The seats are marked “exclusively for men”.

Text placed on the floor next to the modified seats makes the point that sitting there is uncomfortable – but not as uncomfortable as getting sexually assaulted.

I think public employees in most countries of the world are very stupid people.

Just curious, is it the actual position of liberal anti-gun types that we would be better off as a society if these three thugs were still alive after successfully burglarizing this residence? Just asking.

Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects entered the home through a glass back door with the intent to burglarize it. It was not immediately clear why they picked that home.

Mahoney said the suspects encountered the homeowner’s 19-year-old son, who opened fire (with an AR-15) after an exchange of words. Two of the suspects died in the home’s kitchen while a third was found in the driveway.

This home was defended with the exact weapons liberals want to ban. (And would have succeeded in banning if Hillary were in the White House and Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court). And in states like Maryland, you can be prosecuted for defending your home against home invaders.

Follow up. Will the three dead thugs be counted as “Gun deaths” when the liberals are rounding up their anti-gun talking points.

Update: How the BBC is covering it: Three teenagers who broke into a home in Oklahoma were killed by the homeowner’s son firing an assault-style AR-15. They describe the dead thugs as “teens” or “teenagers” six eight times, and “intruders” once. They also bring up “stand your ground laws” even though they have no relevance to this case (but they are another things liberals oppose because they side with the thugs).

Who Says the Elites Are Out of Touch

A Nobel Laureate in Economics claims that poor people in America have it worse than poor people in Africa or Bangladesh because — I am not making this up — it’s such a burden for them to have to apply for welfare benefits here.

A lot of these programs have been turned into block grants, like [the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or welfare, program], and it’s very hard for people to get them.

If you had to choose between living in a poor village in India and living in the Mississippi Delta or in a suburb of Milwaukee in a trailer park, I’m not sure who would have the better life.

Later in the article, he admits he hasn’t spent time in Appalachia or the slums of a Democrat-run American city, but he summers in Montana. That’s close enough, isn’t it?

Begun the Civil War Is

Posted by V the K at 8:23 am - March 27, 2017.
Filed under: Civil Discourse

The Democrat Left has abandoned any pretense that it respects the Rule-0f-Law or Civic Culture, and has embarked on a dangerous and destructive course that can only end one of two ways; Tyranny, or National Dissolution.

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when it decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

For example, states and cities run by Democrats defy Immigration Laws with impunity; but how dare any state defy a Presidential Edict on Transgender Bathrooms, or an EPA regulation cooked up by bureaucrats and environmental lobbyists.

The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.

There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won’t die in darkness.

Consider that the Democrat Left now embraces an “Anti-Fascist” movement consisting of thugs in black outfits and masks committing acts of violence in support of an Authoritarian Ideology.  (Did you see any conservatives respond violently to the p*ssy hat march? No, you did not.)

Good News, Trump Isn’t Hitler

Because Hitler would have gotten Congress to pass “Review and Rename.”

With the failure of the Ryan healthcare bill, the illusion of Trump-is-Hitler has been fully replaced with Trump-is-incompetent meme. Look for the new meme to dominate the news, probably through the summer. By year end, you will see a second turn, from incompetent to “Competent, but we don’t like it.”

I have been predicting this story arc for some time now. So far, we’re ahead of schedule.

In the 2D world, where everything is just the way it looks, and people are rational, Trump and Ryan failed to improve healthcare. But in the 3D world of persuasion, Trump just had one of the best days any president ever had: He got promoted from Hitler to incompetent. And that promotion effectively defused the Hitler-hallucination bomb that was engineered by the Clinton campaign.

In all seriousness, the Trump-is-Hitler illusion was the biggest problem in the country, and maybe the world. It was scaring people to the point of bad health. It made any kind of political conversation impossible.

Now we move on to “Neil Gorsuch is Hitler” because he expects the law to be read according to words legislator’s wrote and not subject to reinterpretation by unelected judges and bureaucrats. Democrats think judicial rulings should be based on f-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-l-i-n-g-s.

Why Reason and Common Sense Are Losing to Emotionalism and Virtue Signaling

Mass importation of third world Mohammedans drains economies, is societally corrosive, increases violence, and provides no tangible net benefits to Western Democracies. Furthermore, the mass importation of unassimalable third world Mohammedans is opposed by majorities in most Western countries.

These are facts.

So why is large-scale Mohammedan migration encouraged by the political and social elites of these countries. According to this man’s opinion, blame upper-class white women and their endless need to virtue-signal.

Which explains why Angela Merkel and the Government of Sweden have embarked on this suicidal course. (The author describes Sweden as what happens when the Womyn’s Studies Department at your local university runs a country.)

Renege and Rename Fails; a Deplorable Alternative

Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) which was supposed to “repeal and replace” Obamacare did this earlier today. It’s hard to find an objective, non-political analysis of the bill, so, we will make do with what Wikipedia said.

The act would allow states to continue to enroll persons in the ACA Medicaid expansion through January 1, 2020, and would disallow further enrollment after that date. The AHCA will include age-based tax credits for those who earn less than $75,000, or $150,000 for joint filers. The bill would require insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. The AHCA uses a standard of ‘continuous coverage’, defined by a 63-day coverage gap, where an individual who currently has insurance and is changing insurers will not pay a higher rate with their new insurer. Individuals who wish to buy insurance but are outside of the coverage gap will pay a 30 percent premium surcharge for one year and then return to standard rates. Both healthy and the sick are required to pay the surcharge.

IMHO, none of that sounds like an appeal of Obamacare.

The Republicans were proud that the bill would have replaced Centrally-Planned Medicaid with bloc grants to the states; which is a good idea on its own, but does nothing to address the cost drivers in Obamacare that have led to soaring premiums, outrageous deductibles, and rising expenses that have been called the Obamacare “Death Spiral.”

Moderate Republicans — who, contrary to left-wing propaganda make up the majority of the Republican caucus (only 30 of 237 congressional Republicans belong to the conservative Freedom Caucus) — balked at repealing the parts of Obamacare that were “popular,” i.e. the subsidies, the requirement for insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions, and the expansion of Medicaid in 31 states. (Supposedly, Medicaid subsidies for the expansion were to be phased out after a few years, but everyone knew this was a lie/budget gimmick to hide the cost.)

The requirement that insurance companies cover pre-existing conditions is a huge cost driver. It’s essentially saying that you can wreck your car, buy car insurance the next day, and have the insurance company buy you a new car.

The bill also did not address another significant cost-driver, the Essential Health Benefits part of Obamacare. This is the part wherein a bureaucrat at the Department of Health and Human Services forces me to buy a policy covering mastectomies, mammograms, maternity care, drug rehab, and sex reassignments even though I will never have any need of those things.

All right, then. So… according to the moderates and the Idiocracy we *have* to have expanded MedicAid coverage and we *have* to cover the pre-existing conditions of people who were too f–king irresponsible to buy health insurance.

OK, let me offer a Deplorable Proposal to solve that problem. 1. Everybody with a pre-existing conditions gets to go into Medicaid. #2. The Medicaid tax is tripled to cover all of those people and the people covered under the original expansion because, according to John Kasich, that’s what Jesus wanted us to do.

Yeah, I’m calling for a tax increase. No kidding. No fooling around. I’m serious.

If you’re going to virtue signal about how damn much you care about the poor, put some of your own damn skin in the game for once.

If we’re going to continue with this stupid idea that people have no personal responsibility for their own health care, then let’s go balls-to-the-wall, baby.

The Democrat Party of Nebraska prepared welcome baskets for newly arrived “refugees” that included Voter Registration forms.

It is illegal for non-citizen refugees to voter in US Elections. (But of course, once they get registered, nobody is going to check eligibility. At least, not where Democrats run the show.)

The person who runs the Nebraska Democrat Party denies that they were encouraging the refugees to register and vote illegally, but says the purpose of including voter registration forms was so “they start to get familiar with democracy.”

Unh-huh.

So, why not put a copy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in the basket?

We know why.

Women Are Fragile Creatures That Must Be Sheltered from Life say Feminists

A gang of six professors at Wellesley College (cough “Asylum” cough) (Annual cost of attendance: $66,966) calling themselves “the Commission for Ethnicity, Race, and Equity (CERE)” have authored a policy that would ban speakers from the college if their views are so controversial (i.e. conservative, libertarian, or anti-socialist) that snowflakes might be offended by them.

The nut of their argument is that the presence of speakers presenting opinions that social justice wankers disagree with traumatizes the minority groups privileged white people always claim to be concerned about — womyn, people without pale skin, and of course the LGBTQs — who then must (because they can’t just let these things go) — MUST invest valuable time and energy in making signs, smashing windows, putting together giant vagina costumes, making tearful YouTube videos and suchlike.

I am not making this up.

There is no doubt that the speakers in question impose on the liberty of students, staff, and faculty at Wellesley. We are especially concerned with the impact of speakers’ presentations on Wellesley students, who often feel the injury most acutely and invest time and energy in rebutting the speakers’ arguments. Students object in order to affirm their humanity.

According to Cosmopolitan, it’s wrong for women to achieve orgasm with men because it makes men feel good for having satisfied their women.

I am not making this up.

“Despite increasing focus on women’s orgasms, research indicated that the increased attention to women’s orgasms may also serve men’s sexuality, complicating conceptualizations of women’s orgasms as women-centric,” researchers wrote.

In a separate statement from Chadwick and van Anders, they explained why it’s a bad thing for men to gain masculinity points for bringing female partners to orgasm. “One reason is that it might pressure some heterosexual men to feel like they have to ‘give’ women orgasms, as if orgasm is something men pulled out of a hat and presented to women,” they wrote. “This ties into cultural ideas of women as passive recipients of whatever men give them.”
