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.

Democrats Pin Hopes On

The Democrats are spending millions on all of the special elections that are being held to fill seats vacated by House members who have been appointed to positions in the Trump administration. They see these elections as a way to symbolically repudiate Donald Trump, and they think that by deploying their vast financial resources, they can steal a seat or two that they wouldn’t normally win. Such a race is taking place in Montana to fill the seat formerly held by Ryan Zinke, now Secretary of the Interior. The Democrats, seeking someone who can pretend to be a common man, have

Apparently modern America can´t shut the borders but it can shut itself down. "´We feel very confident the government’s not going to shut down,´ White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday, although he said he wouldn’t guarantee it. The spokesman wouldn’t say whether the president was willing to shut the government down over funding for the border wall." There are other things which once possible, are no longer so. Dana Milbank of the Washington Post reports that attempts to repeal Obamacare would be a violation of international law. "The United Nations has contacted the Trump administration as part of an

CLEARWATER, Fla. — The Church of Scientology has for the moment at least lost a bid to kill $26 million in public funding for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The church made a last minute bid to block tourism tax funding for the aquarium’s expansion one day before Tuesday’s Pinellas County Commission meeting. The church argued that the aquarium is not deserving of public support for a myriad of reasons. Commissioners essentially ignored the church’s objections at their meeting Tuesday and forwarded the proposal along with other recommended projects to a special committee that will negotiate the details of how that

HOLLY SPRINGS, N.C. -- A family in Holly Springs may owe their lives to their cat. Susan Wild and two children, ages 10 and 14, were rushed to the hospital Wednesday morning because of carbon monoxide poisoning. It happened when a car was left running in the garage of their home in the 6400 block of Sarrucca Court. The family cat woke up one of Jeff Wild´s daughters. “My daughter woke us up and said the cat is making funny noises and then she passed out,” said Jeff Wild. “They were awoken by their cats that were acting irregular upstairs, maybe running around the

Senate Democrats Reintroduce Bill to

Democratic lawmakers reintroduced a bill on Tuesday that would ban conversion therapy nationwide, a controversial practice that seeks to change a person´s sexual orientation or gender identity. The practice is currently banned in six states and in the District of Columbia. The Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act, filed by Senators Patty Murray of Washington and Corey Booker of New Jersey, constitutes a renewed effort from Congressional Democrats to ban conversion therapy after a Republican majority let the bill die without a hearing last year. In a released statement, Sen. Murray cited fresh fears under the Trump administration as a reason for

I thought the cultural left couldn’t get any more ridiculous than when there was a complaint that the Vagina Monologues weren’t inclusive enough because it excluded men and trans-people, though I don’t know why we should be so specieist about it. In any case, behold Bill Nye, supposedly the “science guy,” bucking to become Bill Nye the Weimar Guy (hat tip to an anonymous Facebook poster for this astute characterization), with this effusive embrace of Rachel Bloom’s rendition of “My Junk Sex.” (No, I don’t know who Rachel Bloom is either, but apparently some people do.)

Today we celebrate the centennial anniversary of the birth of Ella Fitzgerald, the First Lady of Song. She was a remarkable artist. Each period of her long career is rewarding, though she deepened her art as she got older. She excelled in a wide variety of material and in every musical setting. There is an emotional reserve or detachment in her singing, but there is also joy and an irrepressible sense of fun in her approach. In my eyes she was one of the twentieth century’s great artists, deep in the American grain. Ted Gioia anticipated the occasion and paid

The forthcoming elections in France are being watched as a bellwether, not just of France, but of Europe itself. David Goldman (Spengler) writes: "the surge in support for ultra-leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon to 19% in the French presidential polls -- from just 11.4% on March 13 -- shows how dangerous the French political situation has become." Dangerous in what way? (Snip) The problem the election is trying to solve, Spengler explains, is recovering Europe from a spin that traditional political parties are powerless to fix. Voters are desperate to pull out and may try something desperate. Desperate may be ugly. Christopher

Scenes from the Science March
PowerLine, by Steven Hayward    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 4/22/2017 7:17:33     Post Reply
The “March for Science” is underway today, featuring the usual mountebanks like Michael Mann and Bill Nye. Liberals sure are fond of marching. It is doubtful that this march represents a true cross-section of actual scientists, but you never know. In any case, the whole thing parodies itself, making our job easy. In 2004, Harvard geneticist Richard Lewontin wrote a shocking admission in the New York Review of Books: “Most scientists are, at a minimum, liberals, although it is by no means obvious why this should be so. Despite the fact that all of the molecular biologists of my acquaintance are

The date was April 22, 1970. The place (for me) was Hanover, New Hampshire. I don’t think I participated in the festivities. However, I do recall a band playing “Season of the Witch.” Beatniks are out to make it rich; Oh no, must be the season of the witch. Appropriate, as it turned out. The first Earth Day came full of gloomy commentary and predictions from the scientific community. Mark Perry at AEIdeas recalls 18 of them (he counts a few that were made after Earth Day, but during the same era). Here are the 18: 1. Harvard biologist George

More to come later, but John Morgan charmed an overflow crowd at the Tampa Tiger Bay Club today, where he was asked about that 2014 viral video of him, drink in hand, addressing a crowd at the Boots N Buckles saloon in Lakeland while campaigning to legalize medical marijuana in Florida. Good question, considering how many of the people who doubt Morgan´s strength as a candidate mention booze. (Morgan was charged with driving under the influence in 1997 and 1993.) "First of all, I was not drunk when I was on that video," said Morgan, laughing off the question and

Once upon a time, David Brooks was considered the house conservative at the New York Times. But in his April 21 New York Times column, he put President Donald J. Trump on a list of "strong men" that includes Turkey´s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and North Korea´s Kim Jong-un. Mr. Brooks noted that Erdogan has "dismantle[d] democratic institutions and replace[d] them with majoritarian dictatorship." The Times columnist went on to assert: "While running for office, Donald Trump violated every norm of statesmanship built up over these many centuries[.]" Mr. Brooks, however, does not elaborate, explain, or elucidate the nature of the

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that President Trump and Republicans in Congress will have "doo-doo stuck to their shoe for a long time" if they pass the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The comments came a day after the AHCA received a boost in support from the House Freedom Caucus, which announced it would back the bill. "I think President Trump is really making fools of the members of Congress, of his own party," she said in her weekly press conference. "He´s asking them to vote for a bill that is wildly unpopular in the country,

My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention´s leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

In the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities.
