I Have Seen the Future
and It´s Miserable

PJ Media, by Roger L. Simon

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/16/2017 8:27:52 PM

No bigger example that punditry is a dangerous game exists than Lincoln Steffens´ wildly optimistic declaration -- after a three-week visit to the Soviet Union in 1919 -- "I have seen the future and it works!" I am on my way back from a two-week tour of Baltic cities, including one in Russia, and I will throw caution to the wind with my own declaration -- "I have seen the future and it´s miserable." I was tempted to say "stinks," rather than "miserable," but I decided to hold back just a tad. After all, the six cities I visited -- Copenhagen, Gdansk,

I found this article wholly unsatisfying. He said he went on a two week tour and visited six cities but only writes about hearsay from another passenger which might be second hand. How about some first person observations and reports of conversations with the people who live there?

Why Global Warming Alarmism Is Wrong
PowerLine, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 8/15/2017 6:18:39     Post Reply
Dr. Judith Curry is one of the leading realist voices in the climate science community, even though she has now moved on from what she considers a hopelessly politicized field. This 12-minute interview is a good introduction to some (by no means all) of the reasons why global warming alarmism is wrong, and why politics has badly compromised, if not completely ruined, a nascent scientific discipline. Again, this is an introduction, not a master class, but it is well worth your time: Notable quote: "On balance, I don’t see any particular dangers from greenhouse warming. [Humans do] influence climate to some

Behind hue and cry over the alt-right/ctrl-left clashes lurks the big stakes game for control of the state. Past tyranny operated through control of the state, via organs of censorship, surveillance, the criminal justice system and propaganda. Without these it is merely an impotent spirit of malice, condemned to haunt little bookstores and beer gardens. Neither Nazism nor Bolshevism was possible with a small state. From the Third Reich to Maduro´s Venezuela amts, diensts and bureaus have been the true foot inside the boot in the human face. Without Deep State actors ready to exploit it the Reichstag Fire would

Being a Jewish fella, I don´t hold much brief for white supremacists and neo-Nazis. But until this Saturday, I hadn´t seen a lot of them around lately. And I´ve been going about the country quite a bit for the last couple of years, hitting roughly half the states, including some like Mississippi where the Klan was once riding high. I´m happy to report that on my visit to the black-owned Two Sister´s Kitchen in the capital of that state, Jackson, blacks and whites were both equally, and contentedly in my eyes, braving the criticism of their cardiologists for what is reputed

Donald Trump Is President

Donald J Trump is president. Really. He won it fair and square, he was inaugurated seven -- almost eight -- months ago, and he very probably is going to be president for another three and a half years. Minimum. So, now, children, let´s calm down. All of you people over there saying Trump is unqualified and should be removed? Give it up. He´s qualified by the only qualification that matters: he is over 35, he is a native U.S. citizen, and he won the damned election. The Constitution doesn´t have a clause in it for removal by vote of the

Leftover Libels of Sebastian Gorka
Served Up at Rolling Stone
PJ Media, by David P. Goldman [Spengler]    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 8/13/2017 4:07:19     Post Reply
As Joel Pollak reports in Breitbart this morning, Rolling Stone magazine has refried and repackaged the whole range of lies--comprehensively refuted--against White House adviser Sebastian Gorka. The left-wing media keeps setting a new bar for chutzpah. Central to the Stone story is an attempt to tar Dr. Gorka with guilt by association with right-wing political parties in Hungary, where he was active between 2000 and 2008. "Gorka served as adviser to [Hungary´s prime minister Viktor] Orbán," the article states, "who´s been called a ´neo-fascist dictator´ by Sen. John McCain." As it happens, the left-wing Jewish news site The Forward offered this

The riots in Charlottesville reflect the breakdown of the Narrative, which has been the subject of several past posts. What happened on the street has been a long time coming on the Internet. The bonds of trust are breaking down. Reputation and authority are no longer recognized outside of a membership group. The personal, already political, finally become commercial. Some companies have flatly refused to serve those whose views they disapprove of. Political views are becoming conditions of employment. Some national political leaders are proposing explicit "litmus tests" to sort people according to virtue. Now cars are ramming into people. The riots

The Wall Street Journal ran an excerpt from Mark Lilla’s new book, The Once and Future Liberal, coming out on Tuesday that we mentioned here yesterday. Here’s a link to the whole piece if you are a WSJ subscriber, but if not here are two of the better paragraphs in it: "As a teacher, I am increasingly struck by a difference between my conservative and progressive students. Contrary to the stereotype, the conservatives are far more likely to connect their engagements to a set of political ideas and principles. Young people on the left are much more inclined to say that

TAMPA — A Brandon motorist arrested in a fiery crash that claimed the lives of a child and two adults on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway was suffering from a medical incident at the time, her grandmother said. "All I know is that she had a seizure," the grandmother, Violet Perera of Riverview, said in a phone interview Friday. But Tampa police say her granddaughter, Amber Nicole Perera, 29, was seen passing at least two cars at a high rate of speed Thursday afternoon just before she slammed into the rear of another car, touching off a fiery four-vehicle collision that

In the wake of this shocking report in the Washington Post on North Korea´s nuclear and ICBM program being far more advanced than we previously believed, Foreign Policy published an article by one of the premier nuclear experts in the U.S. that essentially says the game is over and North Korea has won. Jeffrey Lewis, an arms control and nuclear arms expert, has been following the North Korean nuclear program for decades. He makes a convincing case that the Kim regime has more nuclear weapons than we thought and that from the very start of their nuclear program, they decided to

In today’s Star Tribune Stephen Montemayor takes up the fate of the Minnesota edition of the Obama administration’s Countering Violent Extremism Program. The Obama administration’s approach to the problem of radical Islamic terrorism was fraught with stupidity and euphemism. The Trump administration has reform of CVE on its plate. Montemayor takes up the subject with the local angle in his article “As Washington debates how to counter terrorism, Minnesota groups press ahead.” Montemayor sets up their criticism by reference to Rep. Ron DeSantis to Minnesota this past December (links in original): "Domestic efforts to curb homegrown terrorism are under fresh scrutiny from

There were supposed to be mega-tornados carving trenches across a weather-ravaged nation. ...But tornadic activity has been in near-constant decline since the 50’s. We were supposed to see Katrina-like storms with shocking regularity. Instead, we enjoyed a decade-long cat-3 storm drought - the longest in the nation’s history. The polar ice caps were supposed to be free of ice, sea levels would rise, our cities would be underwater, and we’d all grow gills like Kevin Costner in Waterworld. So of course, Al Gore decided to buy a $9 million ocean-front mansion in a gated community near Montecito, California. Such has been the

Authorities in France aren’t quite saying this was terrorism yet but they are saying the attack was deliberate. The suspect sat in a rented BMW waiting for a shift change then accelerated into a group of six soldiers. (Snip) "Local Mayor Patrick Balkany immediately told the French press that the incident was ´without a doubt a deliberate act.´" After the attack, the driver fled. Authorities said 300 police officers were mobilized to find the suspect. That led to a chase on the highway which ended with the driver being shot five times.

Marshawn Lynch, a runningback for the Oakland Raiders, sat and ate a banana during the national anthem on Saturday before the Raiders’ first preseason football game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale, Arizona. Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years. Lynch reportedly was not present in the locker room after the game, according to CBS Sports. However, the Raiders’ coach, Jack Del Rio, said

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. (Snip) Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack

This is just raw, ugly, racism and hatred,” Steele said. “What, for votes?

If President Trump pardons former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it “would be an official presidential endorsement of racism,” the American Civil Liberties Union said on Monday. Arpaio, now 85 years old, is famous for his tough stand on illegal immigration. He was convicted two weeks ago of criminal contempt for violating a court order instructing him to stop detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally. Fox News interviewed Trump on Sunday at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Fox quoted the president as saying. “He has done a lot

In Gainesville, Florida, workers hired by the Daughters of the Confederacy chipped away at a Confederate soldier´s statue, loaded it quietly on a truck and drove away with little fanfare. In Baltimore, Mayor Catherine Pugh said she´s ready to tear down all of her city´s Confederate statues, and the city council voted to have them destroyed. San Antonio lawmakers are looking ahead to removing a statue that many people wrongly assumed represented a famed Texas leader who died at the Alamo. Some people refused to wait.

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said he plans to sit during the national anthem for the entire season after staying on the bench for the anthem during Seattle’s first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Bennett said he was motivated by the events in Charlottesville and wanted to speak out on racial injustice. On Sunday, Bennett remained on the bench with a towel around his shoulder pads while the rest of his teammates stood for the anthem. “First of all I want to make sure people understand I love the military — my father was in the military,” Bennett told reporters. “I love hot dogs like any other

Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump counter-protesters converged at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle on Sunday, resulting in several arrests and the confiscation of weapons. The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured. Counter-protesters -- including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party -- marched "in solidarity against hate," specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence" of the "far-right" organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags,

A Chick-fil-A customer only realized she got more than she ordered after she bit into her chicken sandwich and found a dead rodent. Ellen Manfalouti, 46, took legal action last week against the fast food restaurant after she found a small rodent baked into her sandwich in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, according to Philly.com. The Holland resident is seeking $50,000 for the Nov. 25 incident. Manfalouti said that a co-worker brought the meal back to their workplace after picking it up from the Chick-fil-A drive-thru. While eating in a conference room, Manfalouti said that she noticed there was something off about the sandwich.

Fox News viewers were livid after Dana Perino—long suspected to be someone, like Megyn Kelly, who cares more about the opinions of elites in New York and D.C. than Fox News’ viewers—smeared Breitbart News as a site for Nazis on Monday. It seems like the vapid Fox News host knows less about Breitbart News and the alt-right/new right than the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is saying quite a lot. Perino lashed out at President Donald Trump on The Five for allowing Nazis and the alt-right to seek “safe harbor under his wing” before adding that “the
