The uncanny power of words has featured prominently in recent news. Politico describes how Berkeley became "a hotbed of violence in the Trump era" in response to witches like Ann Coulter. (Snip) Apparently there are ideas, like that incantations that Coulter is likely to utter, that are dangers in themselves; that summon devils from the vasty deep and provoke an involuntarily reaction in whoever is unfortunate to hear them. When Howard Dean tweeted "hate speech is not protected by the first amendment" he feared a danger which does things to people from which they must be defended against. The need

Okay then, let´s talk about gun possession, for instance, in Venezuela perhaps. It would now appear that all the Hillary and Obama peole of the world would confiscate YOUR gun to give to one of their buddies. It is all becoming clear to me now.

Richard lost me on this one. Some cogent points, but culture is AI and drones are, what?

Normally like his stuff, this one seemed like someone else´s work.

The lawyer´s civil war
PJ Media, by David P. Goldman    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 6/16/2017 3:43:17     Post Reply
The distinguished political scientist Angelo Codevilla coined the ominous term “cold civil war” to describe America’s precarious condition, adding, “Statesmanship’s first task is to prevent it from turning hot.” The attempted massacre June this week June 14 of Republican Congressmen and their staff by a deranged partisan of Sen. Bernie Sanders turned up the heat a notch, but it would be mistaken to attribute much importance to this dreadful outburst of left-wing rage. The augury of American fracture will not be street violence, but a constitutional crisis implicating virtually the whole of America’s governing caste. The shock troops in the

Hudson Bay thwarted by climate change

Scientists in Canada have been forced to abandon an expedition to the Hudson Bay to research the impact of climate change, after warming temperatures created perilous ice conditions off the coast of Newfoundland. In late May, 40 scientists from five Canadian universities set off from Quebec City on the icebreaker and Arctic research vessel CCGS Amundsen. The expedition was the first leg of a four-year, C$17m research project designed to delve into the effects of climate change on Hudson Bay. The icebreaker was soon diverted. Dense ice – up to 8 metres (25ft) thick – had filled the waters off the

The Left Is Rotting From Within

There is great evil afoot in this country. The left is imploding before our very eyes. But it is a rot from within, and it is self-imposed. The Democrat Party has no substantive platform any longer other than obstruction, “resist,” foul-mouthed vulgarity, violence, anger, and excessive whining. This rot is manifesting itself in some very public displays: Campus snowflakes are working overtime at colleges and universities across the country to shut down speech. They are rioting, destroying property, and openly fighting professors whose curriculum offends their sense of social justice. If that isn’t enough scurrilous behavior, these pathetic snowflakes are now demanding

Jennifer Rubin swings and

The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin tries to salvage something for the anti-Trump cause from Jeff Sessions’ testimony yesterday. Grasping at straws, she characterizes as “exceptionally weak,” Sessions’ explanation of why his recusal from the Russia investigation didn’t preclude him from participating in the decision to fire the FBI director, James Comey. Sessions’ explanation of why he wasn’t precluded from involvement in the Comey firing is straightforward. In his written testimony, he stated: "The scope of my recusal, however, does not and cannot interfere with my ability to oversee the Department of Justice, including the FBI, which has an $8 billion budget and

Naturally the New York Times shows up this morning with an editorial entitled “America’s Lethal Politics,” which includes the following: "In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl. At the time, we and others were sharply critical of the heated political rhetoric on the right. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs. But no connection to that crime was ever established." That’s because there

Here in New England, there comes a moment, generally in March, when you can tell that Winter has turned the corner. The nights are still frigid. The ground is still strewn with filthy snow, cold but angry mounds, pitted black with icy gravel. And there might be more snow on the way. But there is something in the slant of the afternoon sunlight, something in the scent and texture of the air, that tells you that Spring is nigh. I have a kindred feeling about the progress of the anti-Trump hysteria that has been plaguing the country since the early hours

A civilization at a decision point is almost by definition walking the razor´s edge between two futures. One future may lead to a catastrophe whose survivors must begin again from scratch. The other choice leads to a radical improvement in the human standard of living and greater potential for all. It would seem an easy choice. But the characteristic of a system in institutional crisis, which along with the lack of new energy sources and a failure of public education create our "world in disarray", is that the right choice is impossible to make. You can´t choose the future, only

Prosecutors: Neo-Nazi plot

A self-proclaimed neo-Nazi arrested after agents found bomb-making materials in his Florida apartment while investigating the slayings of his two roommates planned to use the explosives to harm civilians, nuclear facilities and synagogues, federal prosecutors said. The prosecutors made the allegations in court documents on Monday, a day before a judge set a $200,000 bond and conditions for the release of Brandon Russell, 21. They want to keep Russell in jail before his trial, arguing that he poses a threat to the public after a third roommate arrested in the killings at their apartment in Tampa told authorities Russell was targeting

The New York Times is uncertain whether to break out the champagne or don the sackcloth and ashes over Jeremy Corbyn´s electoral gains. Ordinarily "progressives" would be celebrating a success by Labor. Unfortunately the British Labor party no longer clearly represents the "working class" any more, so it´s hard to keep score. It´s as if someone tore up the program to an old familiar play and scrambled the characters onstage. Consequently the Gray Lady is unable to say with confidence Who´s on First. “Britain doesn’t feel stable anymore,” said Tim Bale, a professor of politics at Queen Mary, University of

Syrian state television has claimed the world´s most wanted terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in an airstrike, according to several reports. It´s not, however, the first time the leader of ISIS has been reported dead - the latest claims have been met with skepticism by many experts and could well turn out to be untrue. It would certainly be in the interests of the Assad regime to claim that the world´s most wanted terrorist had been killed to provide it with a short -term propaganda victory. ISIS´s official media wing Amaq has also not confirmed the news. The latest report of

She was the "stiff headmistress" to Trump´s "Great Salesman" but being that didn´t help her. The New York Times contrasted Theresa May with the American president calling her "reserved, slightly awkward and serious, Mrs. May does not even have a Twitter account and does her best to remain silent on the key issues of the day, putting her head above water only when she must." Yet she lost an election that should have won by a landslide forcing her into a deal with a Northern Ireland party to form a government. Her chief defect according to British pundit Piers Morgan, was

There is no question, really none at all, that the story of Reality Leigh Winner (née Sarah, it seems) being arrested for leaking an NSA report is a shoo-in for being one of the five out-and-out goofiest news stories of 2017. There are a whole lot of questions to be answered yet. We do know that the way she got the report to The Intercept was just about too stupid to be true. She printed the report, photographed it with her cell phone, and then exchanged emails from her work account with the staff at The Intercept, before mailing the photos

President Trump resurrected one of his most brutal and repeated attacks from the 2016 campaign, blasting ´crooked´ Hillary Clinton less than 24 hours after calling for national unity after the congressional baseball shooting. Trump slammed his former political rival in a series of tweets Thursday afternoon. ´Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ´bleached´ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?´ Trump asked, combining his attacks on Clinton with gripes about the evolving Russia investigation. The tweet revived two attacks from the 2016 campaign, that a Clinton aide destroyed some of her

   

 

  


 
HuffPo Pulls Article Calling For

The Huffington Post pulled a piece calling for the “execution” of President Donald Trump published Saturday by contributor Jason Fuller. Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S. Fuller’s “ultimate punishment” is not only reserved for

Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy. If you do the math, that works out to 16.4 million misinformed, milk-drinking people. The equivalent of the population of Pennsylvania (and then some!) does not know that chocolate milk is milk, cocoa and sugar. But while the survey has attracted snorts and jeers from some corners — “um, guys, [milk] comes from cows — and not just the brown kind,” snarked Food & Wine — the most surprising thing about this figure may

Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice in the probe of Russian interference in last year´s presidential election, according to a story by The Washington Post. ABC News has not independently confirmed the report, which cites U.S. officials. Reached by ABC News, special counsel spokesman Peter Carr offered no comment. In response to the story, a spokesman for Trump´s attorney Marc Kasowitz issued a statement only addressing what he referred to as a "leak" from the FBI. “The FBI leak of information regarding the President is

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that Republicans are more responsible for the downfall of political discourse than Democrats a day after House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot during a practice ahead of the congressional charity baseball game. At her weekly press conference, Pelosi was asked if she saw the "worsening in political behavior" equally in both Republicans and Democrats but she replied, "No, I do not." She then listed out a series of examples of harsh political rhetoric from the right. "We have a president who says, ´I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and

Once again this week, Americans coast-to-coast are grappling with the horror of senseless gun violence — from California, where at least three victims are dead from a shooting near a UPS facility in San Francisco — to our nation’s capital, where Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) was shot alongside congressional staffers and police officers. (Snip) Over the coming days and weeks, people will point fingers and try to figure out how to prevent such tragedies in the future. The time for that discussion will come. For now, we should remember the lasting image of the House Democratic baseball team Wednesday morning,

Rep.

LANCASTER, N.Y.- At many American high schools, the graduation-day tradition of crowning a valedictorian is becoming a thing of the past. The ranking of students from No. 1 on down, based on grade-point averages, has been fading steadily for about the past decade. In its place are honors that recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold - using Latin honors, for example. This year, one school in Tennessee had 48 valedictorians. About half of schools no longer report class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Administrators worry about the college prospects of students separated by

Kellerman said that neither Ali nor Kaepernick went looking for a protest.

We should all hope not. Democrats may not have gotten everything they wanted out of a series of recent televised Senate Intelligence Committee hearings that ostensibly concerning Russian interference in the 2016 election. But as the party of the ‘resistance’ shifted its focus from alleged collusion between Moscow and Republicans to President Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice, the hearings also produced a new heroine for the anti-Trump Left. Senator Kamala Harris emerged from confrontations with the three national intelligence chiefs and Attorney General Jeff Sessions with her reputation enhanced. Her manner of attack was praised and she was acclaimed as
