The Liberal Crackup
PowerLine, by Steven Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 8/12/2017 6:19:47 PM

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

Comments:
Hayward believes that when the whip comes down in the real world, those vulnerable soft-minded snowflakes who never learned to engage us in civilized debate will be at a terrible disadvantage. It´s no accident that the Left´s most recent category of the helpless in need of help is the stupid: their natural constituents. Candlepower envy, ha!

Cleveland Indians´ AL record
win streak stopped at 22

Posted By: Hazymac- 9/16/2017 2:17:36     Post Reply
The Cleveland Indians can return to clinching their division and playoff preparations. Their historic winning streak is, well, history. Cleveland had its AL record run stopped at 22 straight games on Friday night as the Indians were beaten 4-3 by the Kansas City Royals, who became the first team to conquer the defending league champions since Aug. 23. Jason Vargas (16-10) pitched into the sixth and Brandon Moss homered off Trevor Bauer (16-9) as the Royals ended baseball´s longest win streak in 101 years. The Indians set a new league mark and came within four of matching the overall record held by the

Sandusky´s son pleads guilty

BELLEFONTE, Pa. – A son of former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky pleaded guilty Friday to charges he pressured a teenage girl to send him naked photos and asked her teen sister to give him oral sex. Jeffrey Sandusky´s plea deal comes a week before his trial was slated to begin on the charges, and nearly six years after his father was arrested in a child molestation case that shook Penn State and is still working its way through criminal and civil courts. Jeffrey Sandusky pleaded guilty to all 14 counts, including solicitation of statutory sexual assault and solicitation

Who’s a Fascist? Why Does it Matter?

Despite all the chatter, there aren’t any fascists involved in the clashes involving the misnamed “white nationalists” and “antifa” (antifascists). Each side accuses the other of “fascism.” But fascism was destroyed in the Second World War, and insofar as there are still some scattered remnants, they are non-Western (the Iranian Islamic Republic and the Islamic State “caliphate” are perhaps good examples). But “fascism” as it originated, and came to power, in Europe is gone, and there is no sign of contemporary revival. There has never been a viable fascist movement or party in the United States (any more than there has

So here is the CNN video highlight of the year. Today CNN had on someone named Clay Travis, who apparently is a popular sports radio host (I don’t listen to sports talk radio), talking about the ESPN controversy over Jamele Hill saying something mean about Trump (I don’t watch ESPN either), and Travis repeated several times that the only two things he believes in are the First Amendment and. . . boobs. Well, okay. Sounds to me like a male sports fan being honest. Let’s face it, with NFL attendance and TV ratings sagging, I predict we’ll see a lot

Senator Dianne Feinstein revealed both the Democrat’s anti-Catholic bigotry and view of work when she said: "And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that´s of concern when you come to the big issues that large numbers of people have fought for years in this country." She was addressing a Catholic woman who has been nominated to the judiciary. Can you imagine what would happen if a Republican questioned a liberal woman’s suitability for the judiciary because of that woman’s religious beliefs? Apparently, according to

Trees down. Wires dangling. Power´s

Tampa Bay Times, by Lane DeGregory    Original Article

CLEARWATER — The tree fell late Sunday. An enormous cedar, at least 40 feet tall, with branches blanketing two back yards. The trunk, as wide as a couch, crushed a chain-link fence. The limbs tangled in power lines, wrestling them to the soggy ground. Wires snapped one power pole and bent another, whose lines pulled on the pole across the street, snapping those. When people in the modest neighborhood behind Spectrum Field emerged after Hurricane Irma, they saw the splintered tree, the broken poles and dangling lines — and resigned themselves to being in the dark. "Especially when we found out how many

I may need to buy this book. It’s proving to be an even richer vein of blog content than I imagined. There are establishmentarians, there are big-government establishmentarians, and then there are people who read Orwell and see a parable about insufficient trust in authority: (Snip) That passage doesn’t even describe Trump’s M.O. correctly. He does prize dominance and he’s authoritarian by instinct but he’s retreated from authoritarian options so far as president. When the courts blocked his travel ban, he didn’t ignore the rulings and implement the policy anyway. He challenged the rulings in court. When James Mattis told him

There´s an old Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times." Well, boys and girls, we definitely live in interesting times. They´re so interesting, in fact, that more and more children appear to be going through the process of transitioning from their birth gender into something else. To be sure, the numbers aren´t really all that staggering. It´s far more likely that the handful of cases we hear about are the majority of examples in existence, which means maybe a few dozen throughout the Western world. However, a professor at the University of Rhode Island thinks we need to pave the way

The Surreal Blessings of Donald Trump

I knew things were getting strange when I realized I was proud of Melania Trump. After all, here was a woman who had posed for porn-ish lesbian photos and once admitted that she married Donald Trump for money. Not that there´s anything wrong with that! Who doesn´t like lesbian porn? And why else would anyone marry Donald Trump? Still, it did not strike me as the best resume for a first lady. But she´s a great first lady: charming, stylish and empathetic. I experience a bit of cognitive dissonance every time it hits me, but I am delighted to have her

Fake news about H.R. McMaster?

Yesterday, PJ Media published a disturbing report about H.R. McMaster, President Trump’s national security adviser. It said that at a meeting during the week of August 27 at the White House, McMaster brought with him Mustafa Javed Ali, NSC Senior Director on Counter-Terrorism. According to PJ Media’s report, Ali has been described by a senior administration source as being “opposed to Hezbollah’s designation as a terrorist organization.” The Israelis reportedly demanded that Ali leave the room. Supposedly, they meant the demand to serve as a message to President Trump that McMaster’s behavior has subverted Trump’s stated Middle East policy. The report also

How did Donald Trump pull off his stunning run to the presidency? I didn’t predict it, so I don’t feel qualified to say. Steve Bannon predicted it. Indeed, he told Charlie Rose he was 100 percent certain Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton. Thus, Bannon has standing to opine. Bannon told Rose that the core issue behind Trump’s success was his hard line on illegal immigration. He said that, though he’s confident the Democrats will shoot themselves in the foot by aligning with the over-the-top “resistance” movement, all bets are off if Trump gets behind amnesty for illegal immigrants, including amnesty for “dreamers.” Trump

Bernie Sanders’s single-payer health care plan released yesterday offered no cost estimate, and no funding mechanism, though a credible estimate from the Urban Institute of a previous Sanders proposal came in at $32 trillion of new spending for the first ten years. I suspect that for Sanders, this is a feature and not a bug. Over at Reason, Peter Suderman has done yeoman work in digging up a 1987 event where Sanders admits that Canadian-style single-payer health care would bankrupt the nation.

John McCain backs new bill blocking
Trump´s transgender troop ban

John McCain is joining a bipartisan push to block President Donald Trump from banning transgender people from serving in the military. Mr Trump issued a moratorium last month instructing the military to stop providing gender reassignment surgeries for transgender troops, and to stop plans to recruit those troops. That decision came following an order from his predecessor that instructed the military to begin considering programmes to allow transgender people to serve openly and without worry in the military. (Snip) Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, and Senator Susan Collins, a Republican, are also behind the effort. “Thousands of brave transgender Americans love

New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds. It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes: About 20 minutes into the debate, Donald Trump delivered a menacing threat to Hillary Clinton. “If I win,”

Hillary Clinton’s new book entitled “What Happened” was officially released on Tuesday. Since then, she has been promoting it with the zeal of an indefatigable carnival barker. It seems to be working. (Snip) I’ve spent two days and consumed three packs of Tums trying to digest all 464 pages. (I’m a fast reader.) I initially counted 43 reasons Clinton gives for her 2016 election loss, as she meticulously faults all the people who sabotaged what was rightfully hers. But upon closer examination, I have discovered thirteen more who are to blame. Incredible. But not surprising. You see, Clinton has long

While promoting her newly released memoir, Hillary Clinton has placed blame on several factors for her loss to Donald Trump last November — from her own mistakes, to Russian interference in the U.S. election, and the late intervention by then-FBI director James Comey. But Clinton has also spoken candidly about how deep-rooted sexism played a hand in her defeat, and about the double standards she faced as the first woman nominated by a major party for president in America’s 240-year history. In an interview with the New York Times published Saturday, Clinton spoke further about how misogyny is used as

CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. "If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?" asked a TMZ reporter. "Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned. Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method. The 61-year-old host of CNN´s weekly food and travel series, "Parts Unknown," later told Fox

Almost no commentator, no reviewer, has mentioned the most newsworthy fact about Hillary Clinton´s latest memoir—which is the near total lack of anything actually newsworthy in the book. With What Happened, Clinton would at last "let down her hair," Simon & Schuster´s publicists loudly proclaimed before the book´s publication. And that was the line dutifully repeated by reporter after reporter, as though it were a fact. As though, coming from Clinton´s people, it didn´t need to be checked or reported with even the slight distancing of "Hillary Clinton says she´s let down her hair in her new book." But then,

Chelsea Manning has been making quite a spectacle of himself out on Twitter, taking Michael Morrell´s and Mike Pompeo´s exit from the school as a welcome new opportunity to call attention to himself. He starts with an emoji-filled cheer at news of Morrell´s resignation from his own Harvard post based on its bad judgment in bringing him into the university to ´mentor´ students, declaring it ´good´ that Morrell has pulled out. Not a thought about how Morrell´s exit might affect Harvard, it´s all about himself and his feelings instead. Note the high emoji count, by the way - an advertisement

ST. LOUIS • About 1,000 protesters surrounded the home of St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson in the Central West End late Friday, breaking at least two windows and throwing red paint at the brick house before some 200 police in riot gear moved in to break it up. There was no indication on the scene that Krewson was in the home at the time. A total of 9 police officers had been reported injured as of 9 p.m., including one officer with a dislocated shoulder and an officer with a possible broken jaw, Acting Police Chief Lawrence O´Toole said shortly after midnight

When Congress hauls in Equifax CEO Richard Smith to grill him, it can start by asking why he put someone with degrees in music in charge of the company’s data security. And then they might also ask him if anyone at the company has been involved in efforts to cover up Susan Mauldin’s lack of educational qualifications since the data breach became public. It would be fascinating to hear Smith try to explain both of those extraordinary items.If those events don’t put the final nails in his professional coffin, accountability in the U.S. is officially dead.

Sen. John McCain is adding his buddy Sen. Lindsey Graham to the list of possible reasons why his line of questioning to former FBI Director James Comey during a hearing in June was so disjointed and confusing. McCain notably was mocked on social media over his questions, which appeared to befuddle even Comey. The senator issued a statement at the time, pinning blame on staying up late to watch the Arizona Diamondbacks game. McCain was also diagnosed with brain cancer weeks later. But as McCain, R-Ariz., would tell it now, he had a list of questions he was ready to

On Thursday´s Morning Joe, former senior campaign strategist of the unsuccessful 2008 Presidential campaign of John McCain and current MSNBC Political Analyst Steve Schmidt decided to tap deep into his political bloodlust. Although the general tenor of the discussion involved Joe Scarborough repeatedly invoking a recent Politico/Morning Consult poll as evidence that roughly 90% of American voters want some form of amnesty for the DACA “dreamers,” Schmidt decided to take it one step further. He labeled those who support deporting “dreamers” as “extreme,” purveyors of “cruelty,” and “loons screaming out there on the fringes” who are “gonna have no impact.”
