Another media football

The Washington Post claims that President Trump leaked classified info in a meeting with Russians.

NSA McMaster then denied the story. “The story that came out tonight, as reported, is false.”

I’m not sure what to make of this. (So, feel free to tell me in the comments.)

From what I can gather, Trump was discussing a particular threat posed by ISIS. He is accused – by anonymous, off-the-record sources – of letting slip a certain city name that, in Allahpundit’s words, would “let the Russians figure out how a U.S. ally was getting its information on ISIS. He didn’t reveal who the source was or how that info was obtained and WaPo isn’t claiming that he did.”

Legally (and again following Allahpundit), leaking even such a small detail would be a big deal for anyone else in the government, “but because the president has the power to declassify classified information, he can blab all he wants…” If that’s true, then there’s no legal issue. But that does not answer the substantive questions:

  • Did Trump let something slip, that he shouldn’t have?
  • Or is The Washington Post merely extending its campaign of “Russia!” innuendo in trying to destroy a constitutionally-elected President?
  • Or perhaps both? (Picture every President being prone to an occasional indiscretion; and then The Washington Post choosing to bury the story if it’s Obama, but make a huge story if it’s Trump. I mean, for political reasons. What were Obama’s slips, that they never told us about?)

IF this story reflects something that really happened: Is McMaster now saving Trump’s rear end? Would McMaster, reportedly a proponent of the U.S. invading Syria, then gain an upper hand in the Trump administration?

UPDATE: Yes, for the Left to fuss is hypocritical. In the past, CIA Director Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden have blurted out classified information, resulting in deaths.

… it was [Panetta’s] loose talk after the Osama bin Laden raid that exposed a Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi, who helped locate the Al Qaeda leader. As a result, Afridi was imprisoned on fabricated charges and will live under fear of assassination for the rest of his life…

Panetta did not reveal that critical intelligence in a private meeting with a foreign emissary, but to the entire world, on CBS News’ 60 Minutes.

Even worse was the Obama White House’s decision to reveal that it was U.S. Navy SEAL Team 6 that carried out the bin Laden raid.

As Jeffrey Kushner recalled in the Washington Times: “On May 3, at an event in Washington, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. did the unthinkable: He publicly revealed the identity of the special-operations unit responsible for bin Laden’s killing…”

The response came on August 6, 2011, when the Taliban shot down a Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan, killing 30 soldiers. Among the dead: 15 members of SEAL Team 6. Years later, the fallen heroes’ families remain outraged at the Obama administration: “In releasing their identity, they put a target on their backs,” one of the fathers told U.S. News and World Report in 2013.

The Discreet Racism of the Liberal Elite

Posted by V the K at 3:00 pm - May 8, 2017.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

Hoity-toity white Manhattan liberals profess to love diversity in public education; but they sure are careful to make sure none of their own children go to school with those awful, underachieving brown people.

Ironically, these well-educated, affluent “good thinking” Manhattan (white) residents now confront the same tribulations faced by down-market white Southerners over court-ordered integration post Brown v. Board of Education (1954). But, unlike these bigoted Rednecks, white liberal New Yorkers, aided by the racially hypersensitive New York Times, need not block the doorway of junior top-flight nearly all white school and shout, “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow….” while the federal government orders the New York City’s police to forcibly enroll residents of nearby public housing as junior’s classmates. These white liberals are expert at walking on eggshells (I’m not a racist but….”) and playing politics to keep their kids in white schools; there is even a website on how to game the system.

As one follows the Times’ accounts of school attendance zone wars, few Times’ readers will notice the glaring omissions from these stories. While the newspaper identifies multiple underperforming largely African American and Hispanic schools, the problems that plague them are handled with kid gloves. A naive Times reader would surmise that the roots of the city’s segregated school system reside in white resistance to the benefits of diversity, or an unfamiliarity with the wonderful programs at largely black schools. Off the agenda is the possibility that affluent white “resisters” are behaving rationally — accurately perceiving unspeakable situations when it comes to their children’s well-being. To be impolite, these liberals are secret race-realists not fooled by experts touting the alleged benefits of diversity.

Minorities exist in the liberal world to provide entertainment, Democrat votes, and objects for their conspicuous virtue signaling. When push comes to shove, even they don’t buy that “Diversity is our strength” bullcrap they’re selling.

And maybe the reason they screech constantly about the alleged racism of other people is to keep anyone from looking too closely at their own.

The Left Actively Seeks Violence

It’s last year’s news, but worth remembering. George Soros, Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid (and probably still pay) protestors, not only to turn out and carry signs or chant slogans, but also to instigate violence.

It’s on people’s radar in the last day or so because The Washington Post now says, who cares if these left-wing protestors are paid shills? So, what? Which is a shift: the Controlled Media used to simply deny that these left-wing protestors were paid shills.

Antifa: A Terrorist, Criminal Conspiracy as dangerous as the Mafia

Terrorists are people who:

  • won’t fight as part of a regular military; and who
  • mainly attack others who are not part of a regular military (that is, civilians); in order to
  • intimidate people into accepting (or not dissenting from) the terrorists’ political viewpoint.

Guess what? That’s Antifa.

Antifa is also a conspiracy to commit crimes. As one of our fine commentors recently suggested, they may be compared to other criminal conspiracies. Here’s my take.

  • On the one hand, Antifa “only” plans crimes of felony assault and vandalism (that could get out of hand and become manslaughter or murder, semi-accidentally). In that way, they’re a bit less dangerous than the Mafia (which plans specific murders).
  • On the other hand, many of the Mafia’s crimes are intra-Mafia. Not so with Antifa, ALL of whose crimes are directed at the larger society. In that way, they’re more dangerous than the Mafia.

Where is the FBI, on Antifa? Or the Department of Justice?

Should the Government Legislate Morality?

A generation ago, the answer would have been. “No, of course not, what kind of a fascist are you?”

These days, the answer from the Democrat Progressive Left is an enthusiastic and obscenity-modified, “F–k, yeah!”

In fact, the Left is now claiming that Big Government is something we should all embrace on the moral principle “because that’s what Jesus would have wanted.”

We see it with cradle-to-grave entitlements, as they demand we must do it because “Jesus was a socialist!” We see it with amnesty, as they demand we must do it because “The pope says so!”

We see it when they insist that we adopt their version of “Who we are as a nation,” which always ends up meaning “Give more!” (Never mind that the phrase “Who we are as a nation” chills free speech and implies that we’re a monolith, thereby negating what we are, which is a nation of free and diverse individuals.)

And it’s mainly because when the Government forces *other people* to conform to the left’s moral choices, it relieves them of the responsibility.

Consider those who insist that health care is a right (it isn’t), but never bothered to ask their own insurers about putting their uninsured friends or neighbors on their own policies. Instead, they just sit around patting each other on the back for insisting that the government force us all to be as charitable as they never have been or will be individually.

Sorry LGBT, the Left Has Met Someone They Like Better

(HT: pst314) A liberal New Yorker finds out the hard way that gays are no longer the left’s favorite toy; Mohammedans are the shiny new thing.

Last month, when Marine Le Pen refused to put on a headscarf for a meeting with Lebanon’s “Grand Mufti,” a friend of mine, whom I’ll call Dave, commended her for it on Facebook. Dave, as it happens, is a Manhattan liberal who voted for Hillary Clinton, despises Donald Trump, and thinks Le Pen is a fascist. But he’s also a gay man who’s very clear-eyed about the danger of Islam, especially to gay people, and who is angry at the left, both in the U.S. and Europe, for appeasing the Religion of Peace. And so he gave Le Pen a thumbs-up for her gutsy action.

Since Dave’s own friends list consists almost exclusively of other big-city liberal types, he was immediately savaged for his post on Le Pen. One of them wrote that just because Muslim women decide to cover their hair or body doesn’t mean they’re oppressed, and added that Le Pen, by refusing to wear a headscarf, wasn’t standing up for women but simply “trying to spread hate” towards Islam. Another of Dave’s friends agreed: Le Pen “didn’t behave properly.” …

In response to his friends’ complaints, Dave tried to play the gay-rights card, explaining to them that if they accepted the Muslim rule that women need to don a veil to meet a mufti or enter a mosque, they also had to accept the Muslim requirement that gay people – people such as himself – be stoned to death. Plainly, Dave expected that this argument would win the day with his oh-so-liberal, oh-so-gay-friendly friends. But it didn’t. On the contrary, their responses made it clear that they’d fully accepted the current progressive pecking order among officially recognized oppressed groups: gays (especially affluent gay American males such as Dave) are at the bottom of the ladder; Muslims are at the very top. Which means that when gays criticize Islam, a decent progressive is supposed to scream “Islamophobe”; but when Muslims drop gays to their deaths off the roofs of buildings, one is expected to look away and change the topic.

The Democrat Progressive Left has no fixed set of ethical standards, moral principles, or concept of inalienable rights. What they have is “What feels good right now” and “What is politically advantageous right now.” And what feels good right now is virtue-signaling about Mohammedans. Inconvenient realities about the beliefs of Mohammedism vis-a-vis homosexuals must not be allowed to stand in the way of self-righteous virtue-signaling.

And there is a political calculus as well. Globally, Mohammedans outnumber gays and mass immigrations and high birth rates mean there are more votes in mosques than gay bars. Also, Mohammedans share the Democratic Progressive Left’s lust for absolute political authority and violent repression of opposing belief systems. So, there’s that.

Boom!

Leftist Pederasty Advocate George Takei joined the “Mike Pence Loves His Wife; Let’s Get Him” Liberal Hatefest with this Tweet.

Pence won’t have dinner alone with a woman who’s not his wife. Literally, he won’t, ever: No woman in her right mind would sit through that.

Dana Loesch shot back:

If you want Pence to stay out of your relationships, try staying out of his.

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.

Irony, Chutzpah, or Gall?

A Berkeley liberal (with the usual complete lack of self-awareness) praises the success of her violent, Black Bloc/Antifa allies.

“I think shutting down and forcing the cancellation of a white supremacist like Milo Yiannopoulos was a stunning achievement….”

“It isn’t a question of free speech,” said Felarca. “This is about our right to be free of intimidation.” [Emphasis added.]

The person who said that is a public school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District.

For every violent thug in a black mask at the Berkeley Riot, there were 5 “non-violent” protesters proving him cover; ten people who know who they are but won’t tell the police;  and ten or a hundred thousand liberals nodding and saying, “I don’t totally agree with their tactics, but I like the result.”

Say what you will about how “Antifa” is a violent minority; but it only takes 1 dog to move a thousand sheep.

It is notable that Milo Yiannopoulos — a gay, Jewish immigrant with a penchant for interracial coupling — is the object of the left’s Two-Minutes Hate. They hate him with such passion because he proves that two of the most dearly held beliefs of the American left are false. 1. That the right-wing hates gays and immigrants and would never accept one as their own. 2. That the left is open-minded, thoughtful, and tolerant.

San Francisco Leftists Outraged and Fearful That Immigrants Are Taking Over Their Neighborhoods

As long as Somali refugees and other Third World migrants are seeded into small cities in the Midwest, the lefty-loos of San Francisco are all for it. But don’t go sticking those dirty brown foreigners* in their neighborhoods.

City meetings have become heated, divisive and prone to rhetoric where we openly discuss exactly which kinds of people we want to keep out of our city.

This is an ethically incoherent position. If we in San Francisco so strongly believe that national immigration is a human right, then it seems strange to block migration into our own neighborhoods.

Consider the San Francisco Board of Supervisors’ decision to challenge the environmental review of a proposed housing project at 1515 Van Ness Ave. Despite the project’s plan to rent 25 percent of its units at a below-market rate, many members of the neighborhood preservation group, Calle 24, expressed anger that the project might bring tech workers into the Latino Cultural District.

Or that members of the Forest Hill homeowners association opposed a project that would build affordable housing for seniors and the formerly homeless on a site now occupied by a church. One of the grievances aired was that it might bring mentally unstable or drug-addicted people into the neighborhood.

“Tech Workers” appears to be a liberal dog-whistle for “dirty brown foreigners.” (The distaste the San Francisco left has for immigrants is so profound, it extends even to those in the country legally and contributing to the economy.)

Even more pointedly, more than a third of Silicon Valley tech workers are immigrants themselves. For many people in China, India and Eastern Europe, working in technology is one of the few ways out of their countries and into ours.

* Note, my use of “dirty brown foreigners” is intended as irony and sarcasm. I shouldn’t have to point that out, but many leftists are humorless and stupid.

Leftist Hypocrisy, It’s What’s for Breakfast

Let’s review how the American Democrat Left regards political disagreement:

It’s like Obama whining yesterday that the reason Hillary lost is because people were able to watch FoxNews in bars and restaurants. (Which shows how little time he spends in bars and restaurants outside the bubble.) Owning 99% of the media isn’t enough, apparently; the left must have all of it or it can’t succeed. Is the Democrat Left’s political philosophy so fragile that not even one voice of dissent can be permitted to question it?

So, how does the left react when the other side plays a similar game and creates a website that simply calls out radical far left professors for bias, promoting leftist politics in the classroom, and discriminating against conservative students? How do professors who profess that their goal is for their students to “become conceptually unhinged, to leave my classes discontented and maladjusted” respond when their agenda is exposed to the world?

How do cockroaches react when you turn on the bathroom light.** The New York Times, Slate, and other elements of the Democrat-Media Complex are attacking the site, and the academic left is having full-on the vapors.

Robert Jensen, a professor at the University of Texas at Austin, also expressed his feelings on being included on the list for teaching students that “we won’t end men’s violence against women if we do not address the toxic notions about masculinity in patriarchy … rooted in control, conquest, aggression.”

“It would be easier to dismiss this rather silly project if the United States had not just elected a president who shouts over attempts at rational discourse and reactionary majorities in both houses of Congress,” writes Jensen. “I’m a tenured full professor (and white, male, and a U.S. citizen by birth) and am not worried. But, even though the group behind the watchlist has no formal power over me or my university, the attempt at bullying professors — no matter how weakly supported — may well inhibit professors without my security and privilege.”

“Robert Jensen” was a name I thought I had heard before. He’s a journalism professor capable of writing a 3,800 word polemic that is almost unreadable and tells you nothing except that he hates the world. In addition to his fashionable hatred of the The Patriarchy and “toxic masculinity,” He is a self-avowed radical socialist  who says that Thanksgiving is a celebration of White Supremacy.

Why is he so afraid of having his radical left views outed? Perhaps he is afraid that someone, somewhere, somehow might destroy his career and livelihood for holding the wrong political beliefs.

Democrats, then… going nanners about the prospect of Donald Trump not accepting the election results.

“When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about our elections, that undermines our democracy,” President Obama said. “You’re doing the work of our adversaries for them.”

Democrats, now

The Democratic nominee could still snatch the US Presidency away from Donald Trump after being told to demand a recount in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania by election lawyers and computer scientists in the latest twist to the Presidential race.

And

At least six Democratic electors have signed an agreement to try to block Donald Trump from securing the presidency with 270 Electoral College votes.

All of a sudden, contesting the results of an election doesn’t “undermine our democracy” or “do the work of our adversaries.”

Gee, I wonder what changed?

Speaking of things that have changed since the election, the MFM is making much of Trump kinda-sorta backtracking on prosecuting the Felonious Grandma, and global warming, and deportations. Meh, I think as conservatives, we are accustomed to being disappointed in Republican presidents and horrified by Democrat ones.

At least the Felonious Grandma won’t be packing the Supreme Court with Sotomayors and Bader Ginsburgs.

BTW: The spin from Clintonville is that she lost because the media was too Pro-Trump and Anti-Hillary.  And some people say the Democrats are out-of-touch and detached from reality.

Beta Males for Hillary

Peter Beinart is a guy I think I heard of. He might have been at The New Republic before it was bought by that gay dude who got rich because he invented the Facebook poke. Anyway, Peter Beinart is the kind of guy who urinates in a recumbent position to let the feminists know he’s down with the struggle, and he says that the only reason Hillary is being criticized is because she’s a woman and men are threatened by her. He provides several examples of the kind of “misogyny” that has led to the deep, embedded, pearl-shaped indentations on the insides of his fingers.

Black pin reading Don’t be a pussy. vote for Trump in 2016. Black-and-red pin reading trump 2016: finally someone with balls. White T-shirt reading trump that bitch. White T‑shirt reading hillary sucks but not like monica. Red pin reading life’s a bitch: don’t vote for one. White pin depicting a boy urinating on the word Hillary. Black T-shirt depicting Trump as a biker and Clinton falling off the motorcycle’s back alongside the words if you can read this, the bitch fell off. Black T-shirt depicting Trump as a boxer having just knocked Clinton to the floor of the ring, where she lies faceup in a clingy tank top. White pin advertising kfc hillary special. 2 fat thighs. 2 small breasts … left wing.

Appalling, isn’t it? For the first time in American History, a politician running for president is being crudely mocked and ridiculed. This has to be only because she’s a woman.

I mean, the left was so polite and genteel toward Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher, and we know they aren’t misogynists.

The Washington Post also locates a beta male who claims to be a Republican, but he’s scared by the big scary bikers that attend Trump events.

“You’re in a town that’s about going to college and raising a family. People are polished and hard-working. He’s not one of us,” said Andy Schwichtenberg, a 28-year-old stockbroker. “I did try, Schwichtenberg added with a sigh. “I went to a rally.”But he was not swayed and he was turned off by the crowd, which he noted was packed with men and women “who came there on Harleys.”

BTW: I have serious doubts that this setzpinkler is an actual Republican or has ever attended a Trump rally.
