The Curse of Our Times
American Spectator, by William Murchison

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 6/13/2017 5:02:59 AM

By the New York Times’ account, Democrats, viewed en masse, want it all — ideological commitment without impurities of one insulting sort or another. Plus electoral victory, don’t you know? To get it, they have only to convince voters. Good luck. Not even the Times seems long on the prospect of a left-wing strategy, à la Bernie Sanders, sweeping the nation, blowing away the taint of Trumpism. “Democrats,” the Times reports, “are facing a widening breach in their party, as liberal activists dream of transforming the health care system and impeaching President Trump, while candidates in hard-fought elections ask wary voters merely

President Trump is having no problem "putting together all the things he "thought" he stood for". What kind of BS remark is that anyway?
We need to kick some of our RINO weak kneed politicians out in 2018. They are our worst problem right now in getting things done.

CNN hired top al-Qaeda propagandist

On June 16, an American media activist living in rebel-held Syrian territory sat down before a camera to vent his frustration with a former employer. Bilal Abdul Kareem described how he and his online outlet, On the Ground News, had been contracted by CNN to film the documentary Undercover in Syria. “This was with CNN and their correspondent Clarissa Ward, which I have big-time respect for, big-time respect as a journalist, as a person,” Abdul Kareem remarked. With a sardonic grin, Abdul Kareem described how he was slighted: “This Undercover in Syria, you can Google it — it won the

Marine aircraft disaster: FBI

crash that killed at least 16

The FBI has reportedly joined local and state agencies to investigate what caused a U.S. Marine Corps KC-130 to corkscrew out of the sky and into a soybean field in Mississippi, killing at least 16. The search for additional victims is continuing. The Marine Corps said the aircraft “experienced a mishap.” The plane spiraled down at about 4 p.m. in a field about 85 miles north of Jackson. The plane’s debris were scattered in a radius of about five miles. Leflore County Sheriff Ricky Banks told The Associated Press that officials were still searching for bodies after nightfall. "We´re still

Last February, after a political riot on the Berkeley campus, Tucker Carlson conducted a telephone interview with Milo Yiannopoulos, the object of the rioters´ anger. Fires set, windows smashed, and at least two people pepper-sprayed by the protesters. And it was in that Carlson interview, at what seems to have been the absolute peak of the Fabulous Milo Phenomenon, that the 32-year-old British immigrant described the night at Berkeley as "a bit rowdy." It was an interesting turn of phrase for a man who deliberately describes himself as a provocateur. More often than not, when the British turn to irony, they

I. ‘Doomsday’ Peering beyond scientific reticence. It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the

Europe’s childless leaders

James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children. France’s Emmanuel Macron has none. Same with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, Italian prime minister Paolo Gentilon, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Lofven has no biological children. The prime minister of Luxembourg is also childless. I mention him not to cherry pick, but because it means that of the six founding members of what evolved into the European Union, five are now led by childless prime

The Washington Post struck out with many on social media over an article that appears to blame a right-wing Illinois shock jock for the Virginia shooting rampage by a Trump-hating, Bernie Sanders volunteer who targeted Republicans during a baseball practice. The lengthy piece takes aim at the foul-mouthed Bob Romanik, who spews invective on the AM dial from a studio in Belleville, Ill., shooter James Hodgkinson’s hometown. “What’s the point of this?" Buzz Feed political reporter Katherine Miller asked on Twitter. “The shooter hated Trump and there’s no indication in the story he listened to this pro-Trump host.”

Just do it: Senate must act on health care

Just about the only thing that has unified the Republican Party over the past decade is the premise that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was a bad law, and should be repealed. With President Barack Obama in office, congressional Republicans had no qualms about sending repeal bills to a certain veto. But now that President Donald Trump is poised to sign a repeal into law, the GOP has cold feet. Some Republicans want to repeal the law and walk away. Others want to pass a whole new national health care system in its place. A few are suddenly worried that

Amelia Earhart Captured and

History Channel’s Crazy Theory

A new theory about the fate of Amelia Earhart is seriously undermined by evidence obtained by The Daily Beast. The theory, to be aired Sunday in a History Channel documentary, claims that Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, were rescued by the Japanese after crash landing in the Marshall Islands and then taken to a Japanese prison where they died in captivity. The pivot of the documentary’s case is a photograph, undated, of a wharf at Jaluit Island, one of the scores of atolls that make up the Marshall Islands. A forensic expert who specializes in facial recognition appears in

First, it must be understood up front that in the grand scheme of things “transgender” people constitute a statistically insignificant portion of the population. They’re so exceedingly rare as to make almost any public-policy or political argument about their treatment by society a sideshow in a true sense. We’re not talking about 10 percent of the population who suffers from “gender dysphoria,” or even one percent. We’re talking about a small fraction of one percent. There may be more Amish people than transgender people. Somewhere there might be a transgender Amish person, who is sure to be interviewed by 60 Minutes. So

Kaiser Wilhelm is on the road again, hanging with his peeps in Hamburg and waxing nostalgic for the glory days — when all the cool kids lived on the east side of the Wall and the socialist revolution was always just over the horizon. OK, just goofing about the waxing-nostalgic part, but really: When the mayor of the capital city of global capitalism hops a plane to protest the G-20 meeting now underway in Germany, it’s not unreasonable to wonder: Will he be wearing a Guy Fawkes mask today — or his Che Guevara T-shirt? Didn’t he honeymoon in Havana, after all?

Three members of the Cal State Fullerton College Republicans have been named in a lawsuit backed by the California Democratic Party in retaliation for their work to recall State Senator Josh Newman, who was the pivotal vote in support of April’s $52 billion gas tax increase. The Democrats’ lawsuit, which was filed in Sacramento Superior Court last Thursday, alleges that the College Republicans and other conservative activists “misled” voters in their successful signature gathering effort to recall Senator Newman. The suit names Amanda McGuire, Brooke Paz, and Ryan Hoskins (pictured below) as defendants in the

I wrote about this yesterday but the situation has escalated today as anti-capitalist protesters tried to disrupt the G20 meetings taking place in Hamburg, Germany. From CBS News: Anti-globalization activists clashed violently with police across the German port city of Hamburg all day Friday, setting cars ablaze and trying to enter the convention center where Group of 20 leaders tackled topics like international terrorism, climate change and trade issues. Responding to a second day of protests, police ordered in more than 900 additional officers from across the country to get the clashes under control. Over 160 police officers were injured, dozens

Rep.

I’m taking the gloves off and I’m going to step out,’” Waters told the Times, explaining her bombastic rhetoric toward the president. “I was going to not only challenge him but encourage others to see him for what he is: basically a bully, an egotistical

Veteran political insider David Gergen appears to have offered some conflicting views on Friday about President Trump´s performance at the G20 summit in Germany. The former White House adviser, who has served under both Republican and Democratic administrations, initially appeared on a CNN panel calling Trump "presidential." Gergen focused on the apparent successes stemming from Trump´s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin including confronting the issue of election hacking, discussing future cyberattacks, and possibly working together on Syria. He then said, "This was presidential. This was big league stuff." But hours later, the Harvard professor reappeared on CNN, saying that "this is the first

The daughter of Donald Trump´s rival in the 2016 general election wants the president to read classical Greek stories that have been told to children for generations to teach them about morality and empathy. Chelsea Clinton tweeted a message to her 1.73 million followers Sunday morning that read: "Does anyone else think President Trump might benefit from reading Aesop´s Fables? The Cat, The Rooster & The Mouse? The Eagle and The Arrow?" It´s unclear what prompted Clinton, the only child of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to write the message. Chelsea Clinton is often

Arizona Sen. John McCain "sometimes" regrets his vote for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, especially in the wake of Tillerson floating the idea that the United States has been taking the wrong approach in Syria. McCain said on CBS Sunday said his vote in favor of Tillerson pains him on occasion, and comments Tillerson said made about the conflicting plans of the United States and Russia in Syria, which McCain saw as kowtowing to the Kremlin, are troubling. "Sometimes I do," McCain said when asked if he regrets voting for Tillerson. "But, I´m still torn by the fact that the American

An Australian journalist´s brutal takedown of US President Donald Trump has gone viral. The ABC´s political editor Chris Uhlmann was reporting on the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany when he delivered a scathing analysis of Mr Trump which set Twitter alight. ´He was an uneasy, lonely, awkward figure at this gathering and you got the strong sense some of the leaders are trying to find the best way to work around him,´ Mr Uhlmann said on the Insiders program. ´Donald Trump´s a man who craves power because it burnishes his celebrity. ´To be constantly talking and be talked about is

CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny described President Donald Trump´s address in Poland last week as a "White America, America First kind of speech" during a panel discussion Sunday morning. Trump´s speech in Warsaw last Thursday focused on themes of the collective inheritance and protection of Western civilization. This, Zeleny said, was not the kind of speech Trump could have delivered in the U.S., although he said it was one of his best speeches in terms of staying on a focused theme. "This is not a speech he could have given really any place else. This is a white America,

There was more of the same old, same old California news recently. Some 62% of state roads have been rated poor or mediocre. There were more predictions of huge cost overruns and yearly losses on high-speed rail -- before the first mile of track has been laid. One-third of Bay Area residents were polled as hoping to leave the area soon. Such pessimism is daily fare, and for good reason. The basket of California state taxes -- sales, income and gasoline -- rates among the highest in the U.S. Yet California roads and K-12 education rank near the bottom. After years of drought,

Her husband, 39, does not currently have a job, so was taking a break from his days of taking a break in New York City. Chelsea kept off social media during her trip out to

More than half of the memos created by former FBI Director James Comey of his private conversations with President Trump have been found to contain classified information, according to a new report. Four of seven memos Comey created had markings making clear they contained information classified at the “secret” or “confidential” level, officials directly familiar with the matter told The Hill. The revelation that four of the seven memos included some sort of classified information “opens a new door of inquiry into whether classified information was mishandled, improperly stored or improperly shared,” it said. “This revelation raises the possibility that

We have noted here and elsewhere Sarah Palin’s libel case against the New York Times. In a June 14 editorial, the Times accused Palin of being responsible for Jared Loughner’s murder of six people in Tucson, Arizona. Since then, the Times has issued two corrections to the editorial. Lawyers for Ms. Palin and the newspaper were in court yesterday. The New York Post’s brief account does not make clear the context of the court hearing, but it quotes the newspaper’s lawyer: Sarah Palin’s defamation lawsuit against The New York Times should be tossed because the paper made “an honest mistake” when it
