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.

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.

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.

Your Country on Socialism: A Traveler’s Guide to Cuba

This travel blog post is hilarious — or, it would be, if it were not a real traveler’s account of his trip to that Marxist paradise so dear to the American Left — Cuba. By way of Instapundit, “read the whole thing,” it’s a “must read.”

American socialists are idiots. They are found only in the Democrat Party. Democrat voters, you are associating with idiots. You should reconsider your party affiliation. Unless, you want to persist in associating with and voting for idiots. Vote against Democrat politicians.

Or, watch the US become like Cuba.

We should have liberated the place the day after the Berlin Wall fell. But, the Democrat Party pretends that Cuba is a thriving experiment in socialism, instead of recognizing the reality this traveler encountered. That’s how the traveler got tricked into visiting.

By the way, my Dominican son-in-law loves how “organized” America is. Things work. Customer service exists. People more or less obey traffic signs, lanes, and signals. You can actually arrange for services. You order stuff and it arrives before you can blink. Meals out actually arrive before hours pass. Your wedding planner does not disappear on you minutes before the grand entrance. Even the government is open for business at expected hours. In America. Not in the DR. Then, there’s a Marxist country like Cuba.

Make America great again — or, vote (D) and make America like Cuba.

Seriously, we should just take the place over and put Communism out of its misery.

Biden Knew? Then why didn’t he speak up?

Joe Biden pretends to have been prescient about Hillary losing the election. Joe: it’s hard to be prescient–after the fact.

If you knew that Democrat disdain for all of the rest of us was spiraling the party and Hillary’s campaign downward, then why did you not speak up on our behalf? You listened to them despise us, and you cheered them on.

You are worse than the deluded liberal haters: you are just a cynical power-mongering politician, willing to say whatever.

But, it’s fun to watch your party come apart at the seams.

Did Obamacare Insure 20 Million?

No, the often repeated claim is false. This false Democrat talking point assumes that all who bought health insurance through the Obamacare “Exchange” arrived there with no insurance. This is not true.

The entire topic of insurance bores me. Health insurance really bores me. It irks me to no end that such drivel occupies so much of our talk and public policy when we should be engaged in the thrilling exercise of liberty under self-government. We should be talking about, well, guns! But, the never-ending effort to turn a free people into serfs draws us to the government. So, today, I am picking up on an article published by the Heritage Foundation, and joining them to further blast the lie that Obama got health insurance for 20 million Americans. If you are interested in this topic, then … Continue reading

Lock her up — in a padded cell

Hillary is saying that Bad Vlad has a personal grudge against her, and that he personally ate Cheezits, drank Red Bull, listened to Blink-182 and stayed up for days in his basement, hacking into the server she was not supposed to have.

She’s deranged. Glad she won’t get near the nuclear codes. Besides, with the nuclear “football” in her hands, Vladimir would hack in them, change the targeting, and instead of nuking Moscow, she’d nuke Memphis.

But, Barack, you are right in that speech you just gave: no American wants foreign influence in our election process. That’s one reason we voted against Hillary and her foreign donors.

Deranged Democrats Celebrate James Clapper

As an example of the below, consider this. James Clapper is now the darling of the Left. Obama has ordered James Clapper to investigate Russian email hacking to make Trump President. There is a “secret assessment” that says so. Ooh! Scary! The source is an unnamed “senior official.” Oh, that’s credible. Harry Reid maybe? It gets worse, though.

James Clapper continues even now to be Obama’s Director of National Intelligence. Obama tapped James Clapper to investigate the claims. This tells you a whole lot, D voters, if your mind is open and if you actually think at all. James Clapper is the guy to infamously lied to Congress about the NSA’s collecting your phone call data. ARRRGGGHH! This Democrat derangement is maddening.

Of course the Russians attempt to read government-related communications, including those of the political parties; did we not all assume that already? I would if I were them, and I hope we are doing the same thing only better. Our greater concerns ought to be that Hillary’s little private server trick exposed national secrets, and that such an IT inept bunch got so close to power.

The truth that reluctantly emerges in the article is that those same intelligence services now supposedly saying Russia wanted Trump to win the election, have been simply saying that the Russians wanted to undermine our confidence in the election. No surprise there. A bit of psychological motive projection from Democrats onto the Russians, I suspect: after all, who subverted Bernie Sanders’ campaign, and then collaborated with the press to sway debate performance in Hillary’s favor? The Russians? No, it was our own commies of the DNC and the left-press, not theirs.

Who even now works to subvert the election, by getting electors to switch sides?

I am far more concerned about the assault by the Democrat Party on the electoral process, than I am about some foreign government. Because, there is nothing some Russian agent could have done that would have convinced me to vote for Hillary Clinton. It’s laughable.

We are watching the entire Democrat machine become unhinged. Loose screws are dropping and flying. Wiring is short-circuiting. They had better get themselves fixed, or they will collapse on the floor in a heap to be swept up and trashed.

Dangerous Media

All of this anti-Trump propaganda is dangerous, but the damage is to the truth, not to Trump. Those who voted (R) simply do not believe the establishment press, period. Why should we? The same reporters and writers who yearn for respect, showed themselves to be mere shills for the DNC. That’s not my fault, and it’s not Trump’s fault. The Russians did not cause their demise, either. Their bias, expressed as lies, grew to such monstrous proportions as to be undeniable, obvious to us all. Consider this motley propaganda example collection I am looking at just this morning:

  • NYT: Trump falsely says US claim of Russian hacking came after election
  • Federal Times: Analyst says Trump administration could enrich contractors, not customer experience
  • NYT: (Rosenthal): To Understand Trump, Learn Russian
  • Washington Post (John Podesta): Something is deeply broken at the FBI (because the FBI is not on board with the propaganda campaign claiming the Russians wanted Trump to be President).

Good grief. The guy’s not even in office, yet. I do not know who they all think might be believing their silliness. It’s as though they strike out even harder, while in their credibility death throes. Who is fooled by this? Oh, sure, the same 40 something percent as always. Give up on them. Those who let themselves believe that the Russians wanted Donald Trump to be President, and undertook to make it so, are self-deluded at this point. But, that self-deluded Idiocracy percentage is not enough to restore Democrats to power across the land. Out here in Knoxville and Peoria, we are not buying it. We just do not care about their mad ravings.

And, thus, the propaganda is — in fact — dangerous, for two reasons. First, to the extent our foreign enemies perceive that the NYT and WAPO and the like are more influential than they really are, we appear fragmented, divided, and ripe for conquest. No nation should appear to be ripe for conquest. Because history shows that conquest happens.

The greater danger is that the relentless, blathering, hysterical propaganda campaign makes the hard kernels of truth hard to separate from the chaff even when the mainstream media happen to slip one in.
