Ben Carson Is Right

Filed under: Hysteria on the Left

In a statement that the left-wing media have ripped out of context, HUD Secretary Ban Carson (who was raised in severe poverty and rose to become the nation’s foremost pediatric neurosurgeon and is, therefore, approximately 50,000 times smarter than the average journalist) said that poverty is largely a result of a person’s own choices and not something inflicted upon them.

“I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind,” he said, according to a transcript of the interview that was released on Wednesday. “You take somebody that has the right mind-set, you can take everything from them and put them on the street, and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there.”

He added that helping people may not better their lives.

“You take somebody with the wrong mind-set, you can give them everything in the world — they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom,” Mr. Carson said.

He is absolutely correct.

There’s a huge difference between being poor and being in poverty. And it’s more than a matter of being able to work out of deprivation. One can be poor in the sense of having limited economic assets and still live a life of meaning and dignity. But to be in poverty… to accept one’s condition of deprivation and wallow in it… that is indeed a state of mind.

My grandmother used to say “There’s nobody so poor they can’t pick up their own front yard.” She fled Detroit in the mid-1970’s, after the city government was solidified under the corrupt racist mayor Coleman Young and the city was commencing its downward spiral into an urban dystopia. Her wisdom was based on watching middle class neighborhoods be destroyed in real time.

No one forces the poor to live in litter-strewn neighborhoods, among smashed windows and graffiti-scarred walls. No one forces poor neighborhoods into states of dilapidation. The people who live there create those conditions. They elect the political leadership that allows their schools and neighborhoods to rot and fester.

What he said is really no different than the axiom that you cannot help people who refuse to be helped; most would regard this as a truism.

The New Civil War

For the last 100 years – and, especially for the last 8 years under President Obama – more and more Americans have become feckless dependents of government.

They may be rich, middle class or poor. They may depend on government benefits, or on special favors written into our laws and regulations. Or they may be politicians and bureaucrats and government workers, deciding the fates of other people and taking paychecks a good deal larger than what most of them could get in the private sector. They may be journalists taking cash payments from the CIA, or billionaires with extensive government contracts.

And they are indeed feckless. They gladly believe and spread the most ridiculous things on zero evidence. For example, they choose a criminally dishonest politician (Hillary Clinton) to be president. When she doesn’t quite win the election, they gladly believe and spread rumors that the guy who did win is a Russian spy – on zero evidence, again – and chant “F*ck [him]!” at important political conventions.

On the other side are ordinary Americans who more-or-less believe in God, common sense, and supporting themselves through work. Again, they may be rich, middle class or poor. They choose 2 business people in a row to be president. The most recent one might not be a great role model in some ways, but at least he says sensible things in a forthright, unafraid manner. When he wins the election, he sets himself to the task of reviving America’s economy and manufacturing base – only to be undermined by the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents, spreading their nonsense.

It’s a mortal conflict. And one side knows it: the feckless government dependents. Because America is fast reaching the point where it can’t afford to support them any longer. They, the cancer, are about to kill the host. They, the cancer, must be controlled and cut back – so that the rest of America can survive, and perhaps revive a little.

They, the feckless government dependents, know it deep-down. And, being out-of-control like any late-stage cancer, they are desperate to deny it and to continue a system – their own system – that promises to extract every last drop of life and treasure that can be extracted from normal Americans.

It’s Producers vs. Looters. Understand that the Producers are people of all classes and walks of life. Likewise, the Looters are people of all classes and walks of life.

And so we arrive at the political struggles of the last seven months. President Trump isn’t perfect. I did not support him. I still don’t support him, whenever and wherever I may disagree with him. But, somehow (and although I never wanted it), he became a leader for the Producers – or at least for the opponents of America’s looting, criminal Establishment. Imperfect Mr. Trump is the president we’ve got. And the vast army and bureaucracy of the feckless government dependents are determined to destroy him.

Thus the endless, utter nonsense they spew each day. I’m not sure what to do about it. I know that supporting Trump blindly will not help. But tolerating nonsense will also not help.

The only thing I know how to do, that might help in some tiny way, is to keep telling the truth as I see it unfolding around me.

Or posting links.

Schlichter sums it up well: “Someone came to Washington who wasn’t part of the club, and that’s intolerable. So they are desperate to expel him, and by extension, us. Every day will be a crisis, every action he takes will be the worst thing that has ever happened, and every step towards keeping his promises a crime.”

Each day, let us dedicate ourselves anew to rejecting the nonsense. And to offering truth, in its place.

Joss, Joss: Sorry but you’re a moron

From Breitbart, Joss Whedon Film Imagines World Without ‘Beacon of Hope’ Planned Parenthood

The 3-minute film shows tears, frustration, and desperation in its imaginary world without Planned Parenthood, where scholarships are lost and projects interrupted all because the abortion giant isn’t present to erase the consequences of people’s sexual decisions…

As if people wouldn’t quickly move to a mix of adoption, privately-funded abortion, privately-funded birth control, non-vaginal sex, abstinence and/or condoms.

And I say that as a supporter of first-semester abortion rights. Even I can recognize when abortion advocates are dishonest.

“Planned Parenthood is a beacon of hope, and anyone trying to shut it down is committing an act of evil. It’s not just inhumane — it’s inhuman.

No, Joss. What’s evil, inhumane and inhuman (you can picture his face and voice cracking on that one) is:

  1. Late-term abortion.
  2. Forcing your fellow citizens to fund it.
  3. Painting murderers as heroes.
  4. Assuming that anything YOU like, has to be funded by taxpayers (rather than yourself).

But we know Joss has problems:

On Mother’s Day, he tweeted his gratitude for his mother’s death 25 years earlier so she wouldn’t have to live in a world where Donald Trump was president…

…and his other tweets gleefully picture graphic violence happening to Republicans.

UPDATE – Unrelated? I almost blogged on this yesterday: Man rompers. Hipsters in baby clothes.

seven male models in ridiculous one piece baby suits known as rompers

Joss Whedon has nothing to do with this, so I can’t imagine why my subconscious connects it to him. But it does.

And, that Russia investigation…

Obviously, we had news that former FBI Director Mueller will be a special counsel to investigate the Trump-Russia allegations. Provided that his investigation is honest, it will be a good thing. Given that people are so hysterical, let them play detective until they burn themselves out.

Slightly more interesting is this morning’s Reuters article, Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians.

Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race…

Conversations between Flynn and Kislyak accelerated after the Nov. 8 vote as the two discussed establishing a back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the U.S. national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations… [ed: Really? ya think?]

The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far…

Members of the Senate and House intelligence committees have gone to the CIA and the National Security Agency to review transcripts and other documents related to contacts between Trump campaign advisers and associates and Russian officials…

Translation: Yes, the Obama administration surveilled the living crap out of its domestic political opponents. When will we get a special counsel for that?

But hey – At least the surveillance will let us know for sure if Trump improperly colluded with Russians. Assuming, again, an honest report from Mueller.

My prediction for the result is that

  1. Trump and his aides didn’t collude
  2. Their not disclosing these 18 contacts was fairly innocent (as in, minor text messages that easy to forget when you’re asked about an area where you did nothing wrong)
  3. all the same, the Left and the Controlled Media are going to start a “Trump Lied!!” thing.

But hey, that’s just a guess and I could be wrong. We shall see.

How do you think it ends?

At least some people are noticing that the Controlled Media witch hunts against Trump are an attempted coup d’etat against a lawfully-elected president.

What’s the endgame? Does President Trump resign in disgrace? Or does he triumph, as the hysteria is exposed and burns itself out? Or does he allow himself to be neutered, governing from now on as a captive of the Democrats? I don’t know.

Nobody’s perfect, and the Controlled Media is great at keeping up drumbeats; so yes, they will find something real or semi-real against Trump eventually. Let’s face it.

I could dismiss the Controlled Media as an irrelevant province of old people, and to a large extent that would be true. But they have ongoing relevance to the extent that they can scare the Congressional Republicans into rejecting (or at least unsupporting) Trump.

To get his appointees in office (including judges), to build a wall, to pass his desired infrastructure spending or tax reform, etc., Trump needs Republican unity. The purpose of the manufactured hysteria is to destroy intra-Republican unity and so to derail Trump’s appointees, criminal investigations (of the Left) and legislative agenda.

I could see a scenario where Trump resigns in contemptuous frustration. He denounces the hysteria (rightly) as he does so, and his Tweets remain a force in American politics. What happens next?

Do the Deep State and Controlled Media play the same game on President Pence? Will it work again, so soon? If it does work again so soon, does America slide into civil war at some point?

Whom does President Pence choose, as his Vice President? Does he let the Deep State run wild, taking us into another war? Questions, questions. Please let us know your thoughts, in the comments.

Sometimes it’s fun to watch, part II

The unimportant Stephen Colbert makes a fact-free slam about President Trump fellating Vladimir Putin. Nothing worth mentioning, there.

He imagines that he’s being relevant or edgy or manly. Still nothing worth mentioning.

People ask what would happen if any comedian made such a slam on President Obama (who, in a most embarrassing moment in 2012, promised the Russians to be nicer than he was letting on with American voters). Example #1,234,511,998 to point out the Left’s double standards. True, but still not much to mention.

Then #FireColbert becomes a thing as people start noticing that Colbert’s slur was essentially, um, homophobic.

Taking double standards to a new low, left-wing celebrities defend Colbert’s slur. (Among them, the execrable George Takei.)

Predictably, Colbert claims the devil made him do it (Trump).

What happens next?

Snowflakes Prove Again That Truth Melts Them

At Breitbart.com, James Delingpole savors the meltdown. Here’s the summary.

  • Bret Stephens, not all that much of a conservative firebrand, comes to the New York Times.
  • His first column suggests ever so gently that the Climate Changists may have over-hyped their case just a tad, making the public’s skeptical reactions just a bit understandable. He adds, “None of this is to deny climate change.”
  • Hilarity ensues.

You’ve seen the items about climate scienticians cancelling their NYT subscriptions. My favorite is German climate professor Stefan Rahmstorf, who compares his side to the heroes Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler facing the wrath of the Roman Church.

Why my favorite? Because it’s so delusional. Yes: Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler faced off against the religious, well-funded “scientific consensus” of their day. In our day, the Climate Changists ARE that religious, well-funded “scientific consensus”. Not the heroes challenging it.

As Delingpole concludes, Climate Change has become “a religion where heretics must burn.” Or even non-heretics, like Bret Stephens, who show heretics the tiniest crumb of understanding.

UPDATE: Steven Crowder hosts a real scientist, to talk climate change. They’re both smart guys and I found it informative.

Once more, the media lied to me

The last few weeks, I’ve explored the so-called “alt-Right” a little. Not joining it per se, just looking at material produced by people who are supposed to be it.

I keep having the same, strange experience. I’m told that these people are supposed to be neo-Nazi white nationalist fringies. But they aren’t! Milo, Mike Cernovich, the handsome Jack Posobiec, Rebel Media, Breitbart.com, Diamond and Silk, Jesse Lee Peterson – None of them are like that.

For sure, my search isn’t objective. When I come across some web site or material that starts to get racial – like, say, therightstuff dot biz – I go “Ugh!” and don’t look much further. Because assigning importance to race is dumb, whether it’s from the Left or the Right, I usually don’t want to waste my time on people/sites that do it. (Fuller comment in this thread.)

So I’m sure there must be some swathe of the alt-Right, somewhere, that gets racist. But again: left-wing protestors and media promised me that the names mentioned above would be that way… and they just aren’t.

As to the alt-Right: the names mentioned above talk about it in much the same way, like “I don’t know if I’m part of it. If it’s white nationalists, I’m out. If it’s challenging the Left / Deep State / Big Government / globalists in ways that are persuasive and fun, I’m in.” That’s roughly how I feel.

Mentally Ill College Feminist Confesses to Faking Hate Crime

She claimed to be part of the ‘Surge of Violent Hate Crimes’ that followed the election of Donald Trump.

A 21-year-old Ann Arbor woman pleaded guilty as charged to one count of false report of a misdemeanor in 15th District Court on Monday, March 6.
Halley Bass admitted in court that she fabricated a story about a strange man scratching her face in downtown Ann Arbor on Nov. 15.
Bass admitted to scratching her own face with the pin after becoming upset during a Woman’s Literature class at the University of Michigan, according to the Ann Arbor Police Department report.
Bass posted about the attack on Facebook the same day she reported the attack to the police, according to the report.
Bass later told detectives she wrote the post to convey “that all people are equal and deserve to have their voice heard and not feel endangered.”

The Anti-Trump Left Encourages More Violence

A student group at the University of Central Florida is teaching its member how to beat up Republicans.

The “Knights for Socialism” group at the University of Central Florida (UCF) held a workshop Sunday to teach left-wing students how to “BASH THE FASH” with a “Leftist Fight Club” open to everyone but Republicans.

“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis (#FakeNews – Ed), Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH,” asserts the Facebook event page for “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire.”

“This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS.”

Here’s an example of “BASH THE FASH” in practice. Here’s another. Here’s another.

You gotta wonder at what point normal people become ashamed to be leftists.

Another Day, Another Riot

Leftists at the University of California at Berkeley did not like the words that Milo Yiannopoulos had come to their campus to say. So, they smashed property and set things on fire.

The Berkeley Police Department said people threw bricks, smoking objects, and fireworks at police officers. University police locked down all buildings and ordered a shelter in place, and later fired rubber pellets into the crowd of protesters who defied orders to leave the area.

“This is what tolerance looks like at UC Berkeley,” said Mike Wright, a Berkeley College Republican member said as smoke bombs went off around him. Someone threw red paint on him. “It’s sad.”
As protesters yelled obscenities at police, others toppled a generator and light pole police had set up, spray painting “Milo” with an x through it. Later on, they lit it on fire, gas spilling with abandon as the growing flames licked a nearby tree on the side of the building.

From their backpacks, they hurled dozens of fireworks — some screaming past others in the crowd — as Berkeley’s usually peaceful protesters vented their frustration. The more peaceful had carried signs, “We reject a fascist America,” and derided Yiannopoulos as a mouthpiece for President Trump.

With each day that passes, it becomes harder for anyone to defend the Democratic (Socialist) Left as a non-violent movement.  Although it’s cute the way the reporter tries to distinguish between the violent and “peaceful” protesters… as though they are not on the same team with the same goal (and the same hateful intolerance).

CEO makes a death threat; is then shocked by death threats

Your Left at work:

The idiot made a detailed death threat against President-Elect Trump, on social media.

He was then surprised that it got out to society. You know, surprised that people on social media would be social with it.

He tried to plead that it was a joke, that it was alcohol-fueled, and that it was only meant to be private (i.e., he’s sorry he got caught). But those excuses didn’t stop his getting some death threats in return.

Surely those threats were also jokes, alcohol-fueled, and only meant to be private. Even so, when it was done to him, he was shocked – and for some reason he felt a need to go into hiding.

His former company, to its good credit, has gotten rid of him. And he has apologized; God bless him, for that. Hat tip HotAir.

UPDATE: Your Left at work, again. The Left’s New Hot Meme has arrived. Lefties will be labelling all news/opinion sites that dare challenge them as “Fake News”.

We can foresee what comes after: The Left will eventually get its “Fake News”-labelled sites to be banned or boycotted by Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, CNN.com, and so on. In this way, the Left will once again control all discussions and get the peasants to conform. Google has started going there.

Protesters Demand More Crime and Welfare Dependency

The Movement to Abolish Police Departments is moving into the mainstream of the left. Left-wing activists want police defunded to pay for more Free Sh-t.

IMHO, the cops should take them up on their offer; declare parts of major cities “Police-Free Zones” and focus their efforts on protecting people who want police protection while leaving the other areas under the control of “Community Systems of Justice” or whatever. They could even release all those “non-violent offenders” into the PFZ’s where they would assuredly be welcome.

“Our mandate, in this time, is to avenge the suffering of our ancestors.”

Apparently, this means voting for the party that fought for Jim Crow and slavery.

The Best Fake Hate Crimes of 2015

Posted by V the K at 10:38 pm - January 1, 2016.
Filed under: Hysteria on the Left

The Daily Caller has a nice run-down of several of the Hate Crimes staged by the left in order to promote their narrative that Hate Crimes are  pervasive in the United States. Including this one:

In August, an 18-year-old gay man alleged that members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity at the University of North Dakota threw him out of a party because he is gay. The man, Haakon Gisvold, also claimed that Lambda Chi members beat him, choked him, stripped him and robbed him — all while shouting anti-gay insults. He said he hid in some bush wearing only his underwear until some kind soul came along with some clothes. “I just want those guys to learn from this,” Gisvold said at the time, according to a comically naive Huffington Post story. After an investigation that included identifying 150 possible witnesses, investigators concluded that exactly zero evidence exists to support any of Gisvold’s hate-crime allegations. In reality, a frat member explained, Gisvold became belligerent because he was asked to leave. Investigators asked the county prosecutor to file a criminal charge against Gisvold for providing false information to police. (RELATED: SURPRISE!

Contra the New York Times and Democrat politicians who want to ban “Multi-Automatic Round Weapons”

“I stand behind you in line at the store with a smile on my face…and a gun under my shirt and you are none the wiser. Yet you are safer for having me next to you. I won’t shoot you. My gun won’t pull its own trigger, it is securely holstered with the trigger covered — it can’t just “go off”. However, rest assured that if a lunatic walks into our grocery store, our movie theater, or our gas station and pulls out a rifle with intent to do us harm, I will draw my pistol and protect myself and my family and therefore protect you and your family. I may freeze up, I may get shot before I can pull the trigger, but I won’t die in a helpless blubbering heap on the floor begging for my life or my child’s life. I will not be THAT victim. I have made that choice. 


As for you, I don’t ask you to carry a gun nor will I ever advocate for the government to force you to do so — therefore, if you are not comfortable, please don’t, but I would like to keep my right to choose to not be a helpless victim so stop voting for politicians who wish to take that RIGHT away from me.” – Utah Gun Exchange (via Farcebook)

Lesbian Bureaucrat Epitomizes Left-Wing Mentality

A lesbian bureaucrat from New York wants Dear Leader to outlaw guns.

I voted for Barack Obama. Twice. During his 2008 presidential campaign, my two daughters, partner, and I ate every meal in our house on Obama placemats…

As Obama’s 2012 campaign approached,  I did not waver. I dug into our old dining room cupboards, and found our worn but resilient Obama placements. I dusted them off, and once again, my family and I ate all of our meals looking at his image.

Firearm possession should be banned in America; President Obama can orchestrate this directive. … To establish gun control laws in America that will reduce high levels of male violence and usher in a culture of peace and civility.

Barack Obama is the president of the United States. He can change the country. He can do it today. I believe in him.

Feminists Have Nuttier Ideas About Rape Than Todd Akin

Posted by V the K at 8:44 pm - May 21, 2015.
Filed under: Hysteria on the Left

One of Mattress Girl Emma Sulkowicz’s dippy feminist friends has also accused the guy she accused of rape of rape.

This is how she described the traumatic incident.

The incident happened my junior year at Columbia, when Paul followed me upstairs at a party, came into a room with me uninvited, closed the door behind us, and grabbed me. I politely said, “Hey, no, come on, let’s go back downstairs.” He didn’t listen. He held me close to him as I said no, and continued to pull me against him. I pushed him off and left the room quickly.

That ain’t rape toots.

In a more civilized era, when women were strong and not delicate little snowflakes totally incapable of dealing with any adversity, a woman would have slapped the guy across the face and gotten on with her life.

Oh, also a dude friend of hers claimed the guy tried to “rape” him in a similar manner; and later further degraded him by… I am not making this up… “complimenting some points [the alleged victim] had made in a class discussion.”

WTF is wrong with these people.

“Rape” Means Nothing Anymore

Posted by V the K at 7:39 pm - April 26, 2015.
Filed under: Hysteria on the Left

Apparently, if you are a hypersensitive Lesbian Wedding-Cake Fascist, the mere act of someone declining to participate in your lesbian wedding is equivalent to “mental rape.”

One of the women, whose name was redacted to protect her privacy, listed 88 symptoms as grounds for compensation. The other, whose name was also redacted, listed 90.

Examples of symptoms include “acute loss of confidence,” “doubt,” “excessive sleep,” “felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock” “stunned,” “surprise,” “uncertainty,” “weight gain” and “worry.”

And you, as the victim of such an unimaginable atrocity, are entitled to use the Power of the State to destroy the life of the person who declined to participate in your lesbian wedding.

So, just as anything a terrorist complains about is now “torture,” so is anything a woman complains about “rape.”

I didn’t think I could feel any more contempt for the wedding cake fascists than I already did. I was wrong.

Speaking of rape, consider what happens when a female college student makes a false accusation of rape:

1. She gets vengeance at the guy who didn’t reciprocate her feelings for him.

2. The university administration collaborates with her to destroy the guy’s life.

3. She becomes a heroine to the Leftist Establishment for promoting their narrative of “Rape Culture.”

4. Even when the allegations are proven false, she suffers absolutely no adverse consequences for lying and slandering an innocent man.

Pretty powerful incentives to induce women to lie about rape, right?
