Do the news media make us free?

Senator McCain is wrong. The media are made up of people. The media are not holy, or special, or more free to speak than anyone else. We are all guaranteed the right to speak and write, freely.

Senator McCain, it is the truth that we need. The screeching media can say what they like; Trump has every right to say what he likes. And, I like what he is saying about the media.

I know Senator McCain must be bitter, and I understand that. But, his childish fussing is embarrassing and his treacherous alliances with the Left are dangerous.

Regulated Society Confronts Compassion in Gatlinburg

Gatlinburg homeowners are having a hard time with Codes. Construction is a heavily-regulated set of trades, and codes have grown by volumes since the ’60s. Re-building means “up to code” and despite the promises of aid and paving the way for people who lost homes to rebuild, these homeowners and their contractors are running up against the bureaucracy.

I am not writing this to argue that building codes should all be repealed. I am writing this to pick up on one comment made toward the end of the article. Summarizing the frustration of the owners, some of whom cannot afford to re-build according to code: “Some neighbors have already given up and sold their lots to contractors,” Rodney Mason said.

Every regulation that burdens the use of your property, or that controls the operation of your business imposes a cost, and makes the property worth less. These effects favor larger business operators who organize to manage the risk of over-regulation. In time, that cuts competition and it’s “the little guy” who gets cut out.

LGBTQ-whatever science deniers in prison puzzle

I do not want to talk about this stuff. I cringe that we have to talk about this stuff. But, in our bizarre post-Christian, post-modern, breaking-down western world, we have to take on those forces bent on our destruction — or bow to them.

So, in this story bravely reported from the UK in “The Metro,” we learn that a man transferred to a women’s prison because he “identified as a woman” acted naturally. They caught him servicing the actual women who were delighted to find him in their shower room, and they transferred him back ot where he belonged — to the men’s prison. Shock of shocks.

I think every man in prison should report (cc ACLU) that he is a woman, and demand to be transferred to the women’s prison. When caught, they should insist that they are “predominantly” female, or that they are female during all phases of the moon except when the moon is full. Or whatever. Get there no matter how you have to and, when your time is up and you are released, immediately commit some other crime and get caught to go back.

Biology is a science. It is well-established that most life is “sexual” in that there are two versions of critters: male and female. All mammals are classified either male or female. It’s pretty easy: you check between the legs to find what’s there. This is not some right-wing ______ophobic hate-filled bigoted rant. This is scientific fact, unchanged even if the male decides to lick around on another male or put it in a very wrong place.

I do not like talking about this stuff. But, the day will arrive when people of the future look back on our decades, and laugh until tears run down their faces and their jaws hurt, over how stupid people were during the early 2000s.

It’s time we end the princes and princesses of the Idiocracy punishing us for behaving normally. We should, of course, still be kind and courteous to someone who we discern might be doing things in combination with another that is not natural. There is no reason to treat that person differently, unless that person uses his or her proclivity as an excuse to behave in public like a freak.

But, neither should we make national autocratic policy out of absurdity — out of unscientific absurdity. We might as well call night, day, and drink sand instead of water because we call it “water.”

It’s pretty funny that this one guy blows the lid off the entire pronoun changing movement.

How Chicago’s crime problem got so bad

John Lott reviews the recent history of Chicago law enforcement, and states 3 specific things done by Democrat mayors, that account for Chicago’s murder rate.

I will add something that is just never said, otherwise: Democrats have for decades now, undermined the states’ power to fight crime. Nowhere was this more evident, than in my state where a single federal judge overthrew the will of the people and their criminal justice system by stopping executions cold.

John Lott lays 3 specific things at the feet of Rahm Emanuel. Why would Emanuel do these things that were bound to let loose the reins from gang member murderers?

It all makes sense, if Rahm Emanuel intended to foment anarchy and chaos. Emanuel and the hardcore Left intentionally spread anarchy and chaos. They are bent on destroying America as we know her. They are, indeed, well on their way. They thought they were further along the path, and this is why they are so enraged at the Trump disruption.

We Americans are so betrayed, that most of us cannot bring ourselves to believe it. I hope that well-meaning Democrats tricked by the relentless propaganda, begin to wake up and vote accordingly.

Obama Administration Failure Log Gets Bigger

The eventual account of President Obama’s many failures will fill multiple volumes. His betrayal of America to Iran may stand out from the rest. It’s hard to pick the worst. This week, we learned that he struck a deal with Australia to trade Hispanic illegal immigrants, for Muslim detainee illegal immigrants. Add that treachery to the Obama Failure Log. Or call it what it is.

It will take some time for President Obama’s supporters to finally realize that there is no other word to use to account for what Barack Obama and his party have done to America: treason.

With all of Donald Trump’s flaws, at least we now have a President who actually is for America. That counts for a lot.

Paris Louvre Jihad Attack Stopped by Gun

A machete attack by a man yelling — yes, you guessed it — Allahu akbar — is no longer news. In the West betrayed by liberal western leaders, this form of the most recent Muslim invasion of the West is commonplace. I comment only to point out that the Islamic terrorist chose to attack armed police, and got himself shot. It’s a good thing this Frenchman was armed.

Democrats: it took a gun. A good guy, with a gun. On location. When jihad broke out. In of all places, an art museum.

There is a most effective defense against this new form of the Muslim invasion: the armed citizen. Liberals have not figured out, what the terrorist figured out long ago. They are not militarily strong enough to invade in the traditional sense. If Plan A cannot succeed, then adopt different tactics. They have devised tactics that take advantage of the West’s weaknesses in national defense: weak citizens. Brainwashed, cowed, tricked, emasculated, weak citizens.

World War M has merged with World War Z, and sheep are for butchering. Liberals, if you want to see what happens to the slow, weak, and disarmed in World War M-Z, watch an episode of “The Walking Dead.” Do you want to be a surviving member of the group, or do you want to be slaughtered as you watch your family being slaughtered?

I decided for this caption, that if crime is “gun violence,” and it’s the guns doing crime, then the Islamic terrorist at the Louvre was stopped by a gun, instead of by an armed Frenchman.

Afghanistan

Disclaimer: I’ve never been to Afghanistan. I can assess only from afar, and from what I read.

I do observe that we are more than a decade into our heroic efforts to pacify Afghanistan, and bolster Afghanistan into a modern, democratic nation.

I think it’s fair to say: Not gonna happen. Noble effort. But, not gonna succeed.

“Democracy” does not free float around like some spirit which may possess anyplace if enough US money and technology are shipped in. Democracy is a result that springs directly from what people believe about who people are. In the West, democracy derived directly from our Founders’ concept of a Creator God making mankind in His image, reflecting God’s nature, with God’s boundless liberty, and with God’s boundless love for his created people.

In Afghanistan, it appears that such a notion has not taken hold. How could it?

So, what now? Wish I had a good answer to that question.

Enforcing Our National Sovereignty

As I have said before, if Mexico cannot or will not control its own borders, then we can. As a practical matter, the most practical way to do that may be to occupy territory across the Rio Grande.

We’ve done it before, and we may have to do it again. If the Mexican government does not want the United States Army enforcing national sovereignty from within Mexico, then the Mexican government should do the job. But, if not….

It’s time to re-name liberals

So much for free speech: “liberals” protest conservative speaker, and torch stuff.

Liberal Democrat readers, are you reconsidering your worldview? As it turns out, the real threat to freedom of speech, religion, and association comes from — unexpectedly! — the Left.

The headline should be, “LDAs protest free speech and destroy property.” LDAs are liberal Democrat anarchists. Anarchists for short. Because, that is what your political party and movement have morphed into, a “burn it down” nihilistic howling mob.

Funded by Soros and organized by Democrat Party covert operatives, we discover.

Are you really a member of that? Why? Where do you think they want to take all of this?

If their true aims are chaos and anarchy, then that explains why they do what they do, from redefining marriage, to altering pronouns, to putting teenage female troops in pup tents with teenage male troops, to Black Lives Matter.

Liberals, it turns out that you have met the fascists you are always complaining about, and you are they are the same people.

Update: From the article,

Berkeley police said five people were injured and some people, including a man who said he had hoped to see Yiannopoulos speak, were seen with their faces bloodied.

Police said protesters threw bricks and fireworks at police officers. University police locked down all buildings and told people inside them to shelter in place, and later fired pepper balls and paint balls into the crowd of protesters who defied orders to leave the area. Police called in support from nine of the 10 UC campuses and the Oakland Police Department and Alameda County sheriffs department.

and, this classic line that explains it all: “There were no arrests.”

Anarchy.
