America Eats Itself
National Review, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:Honeybadger, 4/26/2014 9:28:02 AM

Dear Reader (Including those of you who came here expecting a good ‘Dear Reader’ gag), I’m sitting here in the lobby of the Williamstown Inn waiting for the restaurant to open. The décor is a mix between New England traditional and cat-lady Grandma’s House (though the staff is very nice). The Muzak playing at 5:30 in the morning seems oddly reminiscent of a long time-lapse scene from A Man Called Horse or maybe the soundtrack when William Holden found that nice pacific village in Bridge on the River Kwai. Now that I got the important stuff out of the way, I gave a talk here at Williams College last night.

Quite a heavy read for a Saturday morning. But what I came away with is that crying racist at every corner is another tool the Liberal Fascists use to keep everyone jacked up and at each other throats. And if there is no real racism going, then fake it, because it´s an ends to a means. And it is such a nasty thing. America needs to wake up to what is going on.

A free-wheeling ramble, but he talks about the microsensitivity that is being promoted. The dog whistles like asking a Hispanic where they are from. Ironically we have "Hispanics" from all over the planet, and I´ve never met one who wanted to be thought to be from Mexico if he was from Cuba or a South American country. They were happy to have a legitimate opportunity to say where they were from.

The stuff regarding blacks is different. Almost everything these days - watermelon, fried chicken, and on and on - is implied racism.

The best part of the piece was the recounting of the anecdote about Ramesh Ponnuru and the Dalai Lama.

Tagging "Bundy, Cliven" as a racist seemed gratuitous.

Lloyd Marcus (who happens to be black) has a lot to say about Cliven Bundy, the liberals who slam him for racism, and the conservatives who "cower" here:

Any decent, fair-minded human being would understand that Bundy was condemning the slavery of government dependency in his comments regarding negros. The elderly gentleman is a rancher who is not media-savvy, nor is he schooled in the nuances of political correctness.

The left are not decent human beings. Their bully minions went on high alert, viciously in pursuit of a “gotcha” comment to squelch Bundy´s proven leadership and ability to inspire millions to push back against the Obama regime.

Prominent conservatives running for the tall grass to get away from or running to microphones to denounce Bundy is testimony to their fear of the left´s high-tech lynching machine. It truly sickens me.

Another thought provoking article by Jonah.
I know of shrinks who after years of dealing with mental problems in others eventually end up needing meds. And those that deal with counseling alcoholics end up imbibing too much themselves. So I wonder - regarding the professors making a point of telling Jonah that they plan to turn their backs on Bloomberg - are they becoming as juvenile as their students?

I think that the current college mindset is that it needs to be angry about something, to be relevant, and so they make things up.

I agree, it´s a great, thought-provoking article. Well, it was, until Jonah fell into his own kettle, ironically calling Bundy a racist,when upon second look and full, unedited read, Bundy looks a lot like the rest of us.

The IRS under the Obama Administration has spent over $4 billion on contracts labeled under information technology and software despite IRS Commissioner John Koskinen testifying this week that budgetary restraints prevented the agency from spending $10 million to save and store emails.Koskinen said “declining budget resources” at the IRS caused the agency decided to reject spending the $10 million needed to ensure emails were properly secured.A review of IRS spending by the Free Beacon shows the agency has spent a massive amount on what it labeled as IT/software and data processing contracts in the past five fiscal years.

President Obama betrayed the highest obligation of his office — safeguarding national security — in trading five hard-core Taliban for the American serviceman who appears to have deserted in Afghanistan. The five sworn enemies of the United States are now in the Gulf state of Qatar, where they are free to come and go as they like, beyond the watch of American agents. In just one year, they will be free to return to Afghanistan to fight there and stage terror attacks far beyond that country’s borders.

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, including today, I’ve heard Barack Obama talk about what we owe our veterans–about how what’s happening to them in the VA scandal is intolerable, how reforms to the system are urgently needed, how the problems need to be fixed, and how we need to do right by our veterans across the board.It’s a scathing criticism of the status quo, really, a harsh indictment of those in power and a powerful them

New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet used to get so furious at his higher-ups — Jill Abramson among them — that he punched holes in the newsroom walls. “It’s true,” he said in his first major interview since he replaced Abramson in the top job. “I should have a lawyer present with me for this, shouldn’t I?” When asked about maps that were strategically placed to hide the damage in the Washington bureau, Baquet admitted to NPR’s David Folkenflik that he has a “temper.” “In each case, I was mad at somebody above me in rank,” he said in the interview made

The feds are investigating whether golf legend Phil Mickelson, billionaire investor Carl Icahn and Vegas gambling kingpin William “Billy” Walters took part in an insider-trading scheme, federal law-enforcement sources told The Post Friday. The FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission suspect that Mickelson and Walters illegally traded on nonpublic information from Icahn about his investments in public companies — specifically his attempted takeover of ­Clorox, the sources said. The two-year investigation was launched after Icahn made a $10 billion offer for Clorox in July 2011, causing the stock to skyrocket amid a rash of suspicious trading, according to sources with knowledge

Day 1,956 of his presidency was not too kind to President Obama. Having to announce within a four-hour span that he had lost both an embattled Cabinet secretary and his chief spokesman, Obama looked Friday like a man gamely trying to get a stalled administration back on track.He entered the week still stuck with low approval ratings and facing fierce criticism of his policies both at home and abroad. On Wednesday, he tried to chart a new course internationally with a West Point speech setting out a new foreign policy. On Thursday, he dealt with widespread criticism of the speech.

Charlie Rose´s Hourlong PBS Interview of
Susan Rice Never Mentions Benghazi

Posted By: Honeybadger- 5/31/2014 8:25:20 AM     Post Reply
On Thursday, Charlie Rose spent the entire commercial-free hour of his PBS show interviewing Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice, yet never asked her a single question about the 2012 Benghazi attacks or her role in disseminating faulty talking points afterward. In fact, the B-word never escaped Rose’s nor Rice’s lips during the entire show. [Video below. MP3 audio here.] There were, however, a few moments when a question about Benghazi would have seemed appropriate. Early in the interview, Rose asked where in the world America’s core interests were under attack at the moment. Rice pointed to the ongoing terrorist

Like the beginning of all good spy stories, this one unfolded under the cloak of darkness. Roughly 10 days ago, a small group of NBC News executives huddled at 4 a.m. in a dimly lit editing room on the fifth floor of NBC’s midtown headquarters to eavesdrop on a 4 1/2-hour chat between anchor Brian Williams and NSA leaker Edward Snowden. Among them was NBC News chief Deborah Turness, who watched the discussion unfold as it was beamed from a Moscow hotel over an encrypted live feed from halfway around the world. Williams was the face of the telecast, and the footage would

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
