If white people had their own publication, it would be Wired magazine. From top to bottom, this is a uniquely Caucasian experience (snip) Of the 80 people pictured on the masthead of Wired, only two are black. That is why I was a bit surprised to see Wired magazine recently appoint itself as the arbiter of all things black. Even more surprised at the white writer taking the point position in this crusade on behalf of her absent black brothas and sistahs. And finally even more surprised at the target of all this elevated racial consciousness: Me. The occasion was earlier this month,
Comments: Flaherty, like President Trump, hits back.
Rich, white Pippa says that Flaherty´s videos show "violent scenes taken out of context" and have a "racist message." Just what is the context, then, pippa? Is there a bigger picture that Colin is not showing? Are these poor blacks youths just reacting to racism by their white victims? Is showing black violence against whites a "racist message" when it is the truth? Silencing the truth, which to her equates to hate speech, is "taking a stand."
And so she celebrates that "Airbnb has refused to host alt-right protesters, and companies like Stripe, Paypal, Google, and Squarespace have pulled services from purveyors of alt-right ideologies." Apparently, to pippa, the only acceptable free speech is that from the left.
Is that a real name, Pippa Biddle? That could be a name by by Max Shulman out os Dobie Gillis—like Chatswortn Osborne the Third, Maynard G. Krebs or Thalia Menninger. After she graduates from Miss Porter´s, she´ll go to Bennington.
#7, I believe that Pippa is a nickname for a female named Phillipa. As in Kate Middleton’s sister who wowed everyone at the royal wedding. If this Pippa is a member of the very old and elite Biddle family, then she’s a trust fund little leftist like most of the other SJWs.
Something very strange, and possibly extremely significant, happened yesterday, with no explanation and little notice from the media. But two different writers for the same DC-insider publication rushed to be the first to note this barely-noticed move, suggesting that they know something big is happening. To my deep sorrow, the skills of a Kremlinologist – the people who specialized in interpreting small signs, such as who stood next to whom reviewing military parades in Red Square to figure out the real power structure within the secretive upper ranks of the USSR – are necessary to figure out what is going
When the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage was not only legal but mandated by the Constitution, the majority were declaring that the Constitution meant whatever the majority of the Supreme Court wanted it to mean. (snip) the fundamental principle defined by the Court in its ruling on gay “marriage”, Obergefell, clearly and unambiguously supports the rights of bakers, photographers, etc. to refuse to support gay “weddings.” The Court has declared that the liberties protected by the Due Process Clause include “intimate choices that define personal identity and belief.” But saying that one is glad to serve gays but not willing
Once again, President Trump proves that he is no ordinary politician, and exposes the nature of the DC Swamp. Every recent president has promised to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as a candidate, only to fail to deliver. But not President Trump! He alone has the guts and the honesty to start to deliver. (snip) So the Kabuki will unfold in “the Arab street,” but the intransigent Palestinians for the first time are discovering that intransigence makes things worse for them. They will pay a price now. And the unspoken message is that if they don’t
James Comey ´s subconscious is manifesting itself in uncomfortable nonverbal truth-telling, while his conscious mind takes him out on a limb that cannot sustain his weight. (snip) A couple of days ago James Comey posted one of the weirdest tweets in recent memory to come from a DC player, featuring a truly remarkable graphic that seems straight from his subconscious: [tweet] Every single FBI agent is pictured with his/her back turned toward the camera (and Comey). What is the nonverbal message here? That a lot of butt-picturing, almost pervy, if you think about it. But I doubt Comey is a
Another progressive delusion was exposed yesterday as NFL owners discovered that their attempt to bribe angry black players into behaving themselves flopped as the nation watched. Despite promises to donate almost $90 million to ‘social justice’ causes (which seem to be charities ostensibly benefitting African-Americans) if players would only respect the National Anthem the way their colleagues in other major league sports do, various NFL players demonstrated their contempt during games. (snip) So, will the NFL owners and Roger Gooddell develop the intestinal fortitude to announce something on the order of: “OK, you had your chance! The deal is off,
The current sex crimes dragnet sweeping across the country, pulling in celebrities, media millionaires, and politicians, has yet to reel in a high profile professor from the hallowed halls of academia Will Bill Ayers be the first? In a 2006 Frontpagemag article entitled "Remembering a Sixties Terrorist," a woman named Donna Ron recounted what she described as "the defining event of my life." As a sophomore at the University of Michigan in 1965, Ron was caught up in the antiwar movement when she met and dated Ayers. Two months after meeting Ayers, Ron alleges he locked her in his apartment and told her
Americans generally know nothing about our European "allies" and the nefarious plans they may occasionally hatch against us. But people familiar with history know how the British Foreign Office was a primary mover in getting the United States into World War I. (snip) Among the many flaws in this story is Christopher Steele, nominally a "former" GCHQ spy, who was hired to do the deed. But when it comes to keeping the Brits informed of major developments in its biggest ally, the United States, there are no "former" spies. If Steele was hired by the DNC to come up with
People lost money thanks to Brian Ross moving the market with his false reporting. He’s been suspended, but will we see lawsuits against him and ABC on behalf of investors who lost money? Update: as this was being published, President Trump just recommended they do so (snip) now that we have established that the Mueller investigation can move markets, Robert Mueller should require all of his staff to put their stock holdings (including retirement funds) into blind trusts. If any of them were so foolish as to sell shares of anything right before an indictment of, say, Jared Kushner, they
Cue sustained hysteria among Trump-haters in the media and everywhere else. Stay tuned for demands for Trump’s impeachment, and cries of treason. Just a short time ago, Michael Flynn left a federal courthouse after cutting a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. (snip) During the transition, then-President Obama famously said, “There’s only one president.” This may be what is seized upon to demand Trump’s impeachment and indictment for the Logan Act. Nobody ever has been prosecuted for violating it, much less convicted. But Mueller conceivably could do so.
The Congressional Budget Office [CBO] is back at it again, now providing class warfare material to opponents of tax reform. (snip) the CBO made a new argument, that the provision in the Senate bill that would repeal the mandate to purchase health insurance will mean that 13 million people will lose coverage. Think about this one for a moment. The mandate to purchase health insurance is a tax (according to the Supreme Court) that will be paid for failure to have coverage. The mandate does not require one to purchase coverage, through signing up on the exchanges or signing up for
It is startling the way that the fiercest enemies of President Trump often end up hoisted on their own petards. Whether you call it coincidence, karma, or cosmic justice, NBC News, the very network that leaked the Billy Bush tape (and fired the Bush family scion shortly after), turns out to have harbored for many years a sexual assaulter who was earning the company huge amounts of money. Not just talk, but alleged rape in one instance. (snip) the President of NBC News, Andrew Lack has cast himself in the role of Sergeant Schutz, the comic butt of humor on
While most decent Americans are lamenting the fact that our court system failed Kate Steinle and her family, I can’t help but think of people like George Soros and organizations like the Center for American Progress … how large is our fight and how determined are our foes! It may seem like a far-fetched connection, but it’s not. Kate Steinle’s death and the ensuing, nauseating injustice of her trial verdict are part of a much larger picture: the globalist push for open borders and mass immigration bent on destabilizing the West. Soros is using his money and influence to make sure
A number of US athletes have spoken out against Donald Trump during his presidency -- and skier Lindsey Vonn has become the latest to have her say. Targeting Olympic gold at February´s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the US ski team. "Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president," Vonn told CNN´s Alpine Edge. The 33-year-old Vonn is getting ready for the final act of a long and illustrious career. As well as competing for a second Olympic gold
One of the women who accused Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore of making advances on her when she was a teen and he a local prosecutor admitted Friday to forging part of the yearbook inscription she offered as proof. Beverly Young Nelson told ABC News she wrote part of the disputed note in her high school yearbook that she and famed attorney Gloria Allred presented as proof the then-30-something Moore sought an inappropriate relationship with her in the late 1970s. Nelson still insisted that Moore wrote most of the message and signed the inscription, but said she made “notes” to
On Tuesday night, Barack Obama did the inevitable when speaking at the Economic Club of Chicago: he dropped the worn out “Trump is Hitler” comparison for everyone’s enjoyment. Obama spent a lot of time talking about being a “citizen of the world,” according to Crain’s Chicago Business. The former president boasted about saving “a million lives” thanks to his efforts in the Ebola outbreak in Africa. (Snip) The danger is "grow(ing) complacent," Obama said. "We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly." That´s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy
DEVELOPING: Calling it “the worst day of his political life,” Sen. Al Franken said Thursday he will resign from the U.S. Senate following a wave of sexual misconduct allegations against him. Minnesota Public Radio reported late Wednesday he would resign, though Franken’s office pushed back saying it wasn’t a done deal yet. It will be up to Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton to appoint a successor. (Snip) Multiple sources reported that the likely candidate could be Democratic Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, a close ally of Franken. Any successor, if he steps down, would serve until a special election is held in
MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said Thursday night that "the worst you can say about Democrats is that they´re too pure" in light of recent resignation announcements made by Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Sen. John Conyers (D-Mich.) amid sexual harassment allegations. Franken, 66, on Thursday, announced his intention to resign from the Senate by defiantly stating that some of the eight accusations of sexual misconduct made against him were false while saying he remembered other encounters differently.
Sen. John McCain´s (R-Ariz.) former presidential campaign manager, Steve Schmidt, said early Thursday that President Trump was "clearly slurring his words" during an announcement that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that "the impairment is chilling." "I don’t know the cause of it, but when you combine it with [Sen.] Bob Corker’s critique that the president of the United States is unstable, that he’s dangerous, when you look at the private comments that are made by members of Congress around his stability, you look at his actions in recent weeks," said Schmidt, who is also an
Al Franken’s resignation speech on Thursday seemed less heartfelt than grudging. He cast it not as an act of atonement — he continues to deny the charges largely and acknowledged through his stifled rage that his previous quasi-apologies had hastened his demise — but a reluctant act of gallantry. He was submitting docilely to the “broader conversation” on sexual harassment, he said, while signaling that his replacement, to whom he referred as “her,” would be a female pol embodying that conversation. The speech followed the usual pattern of lying pols: I didn’t do it, I’m only quitting because I am a
We already know Steve Bannon believes that politics is war. But during the course of his speech at an Alabama rally for Roy Moore this week, he gave the country an ugly lesson in what scorched-earth political warfare really entails. (Snip)Still, despite all the fun he’s having attacking his favorite targets and boosting Moore, Bannon has to be aware that he isn’t winning his war on McConnell. Try as he might to deny it, he knows McConnell is now more important to Trump than the Breitbart attack machine is. It was McConnell’s successful maneuvering and negotiating that gave Trump his
Sen. Al Franken took a quick glance up at a jam-packed Senate press gallery as he entered the chamber Thursday, preparing to ask Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan, who was presiding over the chamber, to allow him to make the speech that would end his political career. A senator who has long dodged questions from reporters, he finally had one for them. "Ready?" And with that, Franken, D-Minn., set out on his farewell address to the Senate — a 12-minute speech where he continued to proclaim his innocence against eight women who have accused him of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.
Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia is refusing to attend the Thursday opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights museum since President Donald Trump will be there. Lewis, who played a crucial role in ushering in civil rights for black Americans, will not be speaking at the opening because Trump’s presence is an insult to the men and women represented in the museum, Time reported. (Snip) The ceremony is planned for Saturday to celebrate the 200-year anniversary of Mississippi entering the union. Republican Gov. Phil Bryant extended an invitation to the president to attend, sparking a wave of outrage from various
Comedian Sarah Silverman addressed the topic of American nationalism during a monologue on her Hulu talk show Thursday night, describing the “visceral reaction” and fear she felt when an old boyfriend of hers hoisted an American flag on his own property. (Snip) “[My sister] was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance — these things tend to ring a bell for us,’” she said. “Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense. And it made me realize that the things that terrify some people are the same things that give other people great
Pope Francis has suggested he wants to make a change to The Lord´s Prayer, widely known among the faithful as the “Our Father.” Specifically, the Catholic leader said in an interview Wednesday he would prefer to adjust the phrase “lead us not into temptation,” saying that it too strongly suggested that God leads people to sin. “That is not a good translation,” the pope said, according to Reuters. The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative, Francis said.
