The 17 Most Annoying
People of 2017

Taki’s Magazine, by Jim Goad

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/2/2018 4:46:38 PM

Writing this on New Year’s Eve and staring at the past annum in the rearview mirror, you can bet every last hair on your ass that I’m annoyed. Then again, I’m offended by nothing and bothered by everything. With the stark and baffling exception of 2015, I’ve done these “Most Annoying” compendiums for 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016. In 2012 I listed only 12. With each year, the listicle tacks on yet another annoying individual to the tally, which brings us to 17 walking annoyances for this past year. It is my belief that over the past five years, the world

Everyone has his own special favorites, but we’ll fina few here on which we all can agree…

Goad reminds the “most annoying” is not the same as “most vile”.

Quite a few few LOL moments in there, if you appreciate that type of humor. I do.

I´m with #8. George Takei should have known better than to have Greco and Roman (I´m paraphrasing) his victim. Cosby-Polanski technique. Criminal technique. So shut up, Mr. Sulu.

This list could have been ten times as long, but it´s a decent beginning.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cancelled all engagements in Kenya today after falling ill during his tour of several African nations. A spokesman of the State Department told Reuters that “he is not feeling well”. “The secretary is not feeling well after a long couple days working on major issues back home such as North Korea and has canceled his events for the day,” spokesman Steve Goldstein said.Inside Kenya there were some immediate notes of irony; highlighted by media reports of colorful remarks by U.S. President Trump toward less sanitary and developed nations.

Two recent articles, “How Progressives Win the Culture War” by David Brooks and “A Hillary Staffer Goes to CPAC” by Annafi Wahed have generated discussion about the renewed need for political civility. Brooks describes how progressives are on track to persuading “the mainstream that conservatism is vulgar and socially illegitimate, somewhere between smoking and segregationism.” The Hillary staffer, by contrast, was astounded by the friendliness of people on the Right to someone from the other side of the political spectrum, and she was surprised by the diversity and complexity of thought at last month’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner met with Mexico’s top narco cartel-connected official on his recent trip to the nation. The cartel-connected official in question had his campaign partially funded by cartel front companies, had his campaign run by a political party led by a former Los Zetas cartel-linked governor, and fell into controversy when the official deleted a picture from his Instagram where he was seen on a boat with an accused narco-cartel front man. That drug cartel-connected official, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, met with Kushner as part of a series of talks aimed at improving relations between the

Brighton & Hove City Council will equip staff with badges declaring their “preferred pronouns” as part of a project seeking to educate the public that making assumptions about a person’s sex “can be hurtful and distressing”. Council and voluntary sector staff in the city will be “encouraged” to wear the badges, which include messages such as “My pronouns are she/her/hers” and “My pronouns are they/their/theirs” when they are distributed in the week leading up to ‘Trans Day of Visibility’ on March 31.

This Is the Greatest Manufacturing
Jobs Boom in Twenty Years

The American manufacturing renaissance is still defying expectations. Over the last 12 months, manufacturers have added 224,000 jobs. That’s the biggest annual gain since 1998, according to Wall Street economist Joe LaVorgna. Since the 2016 election, the economy has added 263,000 manufacturing jobs. Last month, 31,000 new manufacturing jobs came online. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, according to the Very Wise People. Donald Trump’s promises to bring back manufacturing jobs was widely derided as impossible, and his supporters were mocked as suckers. “Trump won’t be able to ‘make American great again’ by bringing back production jobs,” Mark Muro, a senior fellow

Conservative actress Stacey Dash, who announced last month that she is running for Congress in California’s 44th district as a Republican, appears to have received an inadvertent boost from the Democratic Mayor of Compton, Aja Brown. Mayor Brown reportedly filed federal paperwork to raise money for the race in the district, which is currently represented by Democratic Rep. Nanette Barragán (D-CA), on Tuesday. She made her candidacy official on Thursday. Brown’s entrance into the race could increase the chances for Dash, a Republican, to qualify for the general election by splitting the vote between her and fellow Democrat, and incumbent, Aja Barragán,

A military veteran who had been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder burst into a veterans home in the North Bay town of Yountville on Friday with a rifle, killed three women connected with the treatment program and then killed himself, authorities and program officials said.Law enforcement officers found the bodies of the victims and the killer at the Veterans Home of California-Yountville shortly before 6 p.m., more than seven hours after the incident began, said Chris Childs, an assistant chief of the California Highway Patrol. Authorities had earlier said the gunman was holding staff members of the Pathway Home, a program

NATIONAL CITY, CALIF. The U.S. Border Patrol said Friday that agents acted appropriately during the videotaped arrest of a woman who was pulled away from her anguished daughters on a street in Southern California. The agency said 36-year-old Perla Morales Luna recruited drivers to take people who crossed the border illegally to a house in National City, near San Diego. The agency put her in deportation proceedings and is not pursuing smuggling charges. (Snip) The Border Patrol issued a more detailed response as criticism mounted. It said Morales-Luna declined to turn herself in after being contacted by phone in the smuggling investigation, and

The ´scandal´ of Perla Morales-Luna’s

The arrest of Perla Morales-Luna on March 3 in San Diego is an absolute nonscandal. Yes, at first glance the video looks a little concerning. It shows a mother being separated from her screaming family as Customs and Border Patrol officers struggle to put her in the back of a vehicle. But only at first glance. Because if you watch again you´ll see that the CBP officers use proportionate force and good efficiency in getting Morales-Luna off the street and into custody. That´s the best way to ensure no one is harmed and the situation isn´t escalated unnecessarily. Moreover, the CBP wasn´t

AG Sessions Helping Immigration
Courts End ‘Catch-and-Release’

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is streamlining courtroom reviews of migrants’ asylum pleas, so helping reduce the “catch-and-release” inflow of Central American migrants. The nation’s immigration courts are run by the AG, so Sessions has the legal authority to set precedents, procedures and rules for judges and for the Board of Immigration Appeals. On March 5, Sessions formally vacated a 2014 immigration-court decision, dubbed “Matter of E-F-H-L,” and told the 350 immigration-court judges that they could rely on submitted written evidence to avoid full hearings in some deportation cases. “It is a big decision … the judges can use a

Talk of “sex change” is a scientific misnomer, argues philosopher Ryan T. Anderson in a recent article, since it is impossible to change someone’s sex by bombarding them with hormones or performing cosmetic surgery on them. A person can pretend to be a member of the opposite sex, Dr. Anderson notes, but it will never be more than play-acting since one’s biological sex is a physical reality outside the individual’s control. “Modern science shows that our sexual organization begins with our DNA and development in the womb, and that sex differences manifest themselves in many bodily systems and organs, all the way

Former President Barack Obama and wife Michelle are in advanced negotiations to produce a Netflix series with high-profile shows. Netflix would pay Barack and Michelle, for exclusive content only available on the streaming service, according to the New York Times. Netflix has over 118million subscribers world wide, and will allow the former president to reach an enormous audience in his post-presidential life. The number of episodes and the format of the shows have yet to be decided, but don´t expect it to act as the answer to Fox News.

Obama is at it again. Concerned about his crumbling legacy and unable to bear life out of the spotlight, the former president is in talks with Netflix "to produce a series of high-profile shows that will provide him a global platform after his departure from the White House," as the New York Times, which got the scoop, put it. Let that sink in. The man is seeking to rewrite history, his own history, the better to influence the public to think he wasn´t such a bad president after all, through a television series about himself where he controls all the content.

Richard Nixon.” Folded into a far corner of the Grand Havana Room, a private Midtown cigar club on the penthouse floor of 666 Fifth Avenue, Mr. Sharpton looked downright stately.

If you had seen a doctor who misdiagnosed your illness, prescribed a remedy that made it worse, and subsequently falsified the record, would you return to him for medical advice? The legacy media have done precisely that in the case of Ezekiel Emanuel. Dr. Emanuel is best known as an advocate of health care rationing and a key architect of the “Affordable Care Act.” In other words, he believes the malady troubling American medicine is that we provide too much of it. The treatment he prescribed — Obamacare — was a disaster and he consistently overstates the efficacy of that

Sunday, March 11, is the start of daylight saving time across the country. But it might be the last time people in Florida have to switch their clocks. The legislature there voted overwhelmingly to abolish the biannual changing of the clock, and stick with daylight saving time year round. Last year, Massachusetts considered a similar move by switching to Atlantic Standard Time, which would permanently set their clocks ahead one hour. Maine also passed bills to ditch daylight saving time. Arizona and Hawaii don´t abide by daylight saving time. The problem Florida faces is that while the law lets states opt out of

President Trump shocked the world Thursday night when it was announced that he planned to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in the coming months. The political world was so overwhelmed by the news that even the journalists at CNN were more or less optimistic. Yet over at MSNBC, host Rachel Maddow was anything but enthused by the idea as she spewed skepticism and threw shade at the commander-in-chief for accepting North Korea’s offer. Towards the beginning of her bitter rant, Maddow seemed to question the President’s intelligence and/or knowledge of history for taking the meeting: You might
