Of Home Truths and Shitholes
American Greatness, by Roger Kimball

It is curious how close certain seemingly contrary emotions can be. Consider, to take just one example, the feelings of glee and outrage. At first blush, they seem very different. Glee occupies a positive register in the metabolism of human emotions. (Snip) Outrage, on the contrary, is a dour beast. It glowers. It fulminates. It glories in moral indignation, which it eagerly manufactures whenever it is in short supply. And it is there, in the manufacture, affectation, the pretense, of moral indignation that that outrage shades in smarmy gleefulness. You can see this in operation right now, today, by the simple expedient

“…the Haitis of the world are conspicuously undesirable places.”

Absolutely. And their “immigrants” have nothing to offer to our country. They come here to take. To colonize here. Not to contribute.

How many have we seen this with? Somalis in Minnesota come to mind. And some like the massive savage (you have seen those tattoos) El Salvadoran MS 13 gang have come to rob, rape and kill us. Why would we want them to stay here?

I do not care how crude the language is when truth is spoken.

The other side of the coin: A genteel lie is still a despicable lie.

It is extremely simple, extremely obvious.

Some countries barely qualify for the title. Some countries are spectacular examples of wholesale failure of government, culture, economy, education and all other things that would be used to measure a "nice life" in a "nice country".

We do not need even one more person bringing their knowledge of failed government, dysfunctional culture, violent interactions, and complete lack of education to our country.

We need to have some standards, and they need to be high, not low to non-existent.

Keeping out failed, dysfunctional, dependent, likely criminal, people from sh**holes is a really smart move, like not going there is, too.

The level of ignorance accompanied by virtue signalling of the regressive left totally misses the point that illegal aliens are bringing nothing beneficial to the USA. They cost us in innumerable ways, the destrucion of lives by smuggled drugs (opioids kill), crime fills our jails, schools, hospitals and welfare are overburdened, the cost of the wall is pennies in comoarison to all these other costs in billions. Immigration based on merit is by far the wisest solution and expedient contingent upon the rate of assimilation into the American way of life

House punishes Memphis for removing
Confederate statues with $250,000
budget cut
Commercial Appeal [Memphis, TN], by Joel Ebert and Jordan Buie    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/19/2018 10:13:34     Post Reply
House lawmakers on Tuesday approved a last-minute amendment to remove $250,000 allocated to the city of Memphis as punishment for the removal of Confederate monuments. The amendment, which was approved with a 56-31 vote, was introduced as a result of Memphis officials’ decision to remove two controversial statues on public property last year. After being denied a waiver by the state Historical Commission to remove the statues, Memphis sold two public parks in December to a nonprofit, which then removed statues of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and Confederate President Jefferson Davis.Rep. Steve McDaniel, R-Parkers Crossroads, who has been an

The New York Times just won a Pulitzer Prize for “public service.” I’ve never met this “public” to whom the New York Times has provided some great service.(Snip) The days of the New York Times as a reliable, salient, or sane source of news have passed. It exists now as an ideological apparatus of the progressive state, shilling for the hard-Left and the bureaucrats who pander to them. It is least of all doing good work for the public. A look back at one of their worst propaganda pieces in recent history is instructive, not only on the sad state of

April, according to the poet, is the cruelest month, and it got crueler 106 years ago when the Titanic hit the iceberg—and Hollywood the jackpot, after the sinking. Being a shipowner’s son—tankers and dry cargoes, not passenger ships—I sympathized with the owners, White Star Line, pushing the envelope to set a record, but still. Going full out in a minefield of icebergs known to lurk nine-tenths beneath the water’s surface is like defending Harvey Weinstein nowadays—one’s bound to end up in the you-know-what.The great ship went down on April 15, 1912, with the loss of 1,517 lives, and a new

The fact he once headed the FBI is stunning given the more recent revelations of just how lacking in character and conviction he truly is. Democrats & Republicans have finally found some common ground as they both agree that James Comey is a slimeball.

The New York Times bragged that it share a Pulitzer with the Washington Post "for coverage that unearthed possible ties between Russia and President Trump´s inner circle." By unearthed they mean published Bobby Mueller´s leaks designed to coerce innocent men to plea bargain to crimes they did not commit. Did no one see "Absence of Malice"?

MEXICO CITY - The ministers leading the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) could meet again on Thursday in Washington as they push for quick progress, Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on Monday. (Snip)Trump has threatened to use other measures, such as slapping import tariffs of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, to gain leverage over Mexico and Canada in the NAFTA talks. Both countries have been initially exempted from the tariffs. Guajardo said that if Mexico remained exempt, the government would consider mirroring any U.S. tariffs on countries with which Mexico did

´A Man Without Courage´: Dershowitz

Alan Dershowitz on Monday slammed James Comey for leaking memos of his private discussions with President Trump. Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus, said the former FBI director "demeaned" the bureau by giving the memos to a law professor who then leaked the content of the memos to the New York Times. "This is a man without courage," Dershowitz stated on "Fox & Friends." He argued that Comey should have spoken up when Trump allegedly pressured him to end the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and also when the president allegedly demanded Comey´s loyalty. "Instead, he leaked it," Dershowitz said.

(Snip)“Department officials are consulting with the relevant parties … one or more of the memos may relate to an ongoing investigation, may contained classified information, and may report confidential Presidential communications, so we have a legal duty to evaluate the consequences of providing access to them,” he wrote.

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

As president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau, Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to promote San Francisco. You’d think he’d be hyping the city’s gorgeous vistas, top-notch restaurants and glorious museums. Instead, he’s getting honest. Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft. “The streets are

McDougal said she is "relieved to be able to tell the truth" about her story. McDougal, who alleges she had a sexual relationship with Mr. Trump over 10 months in 2006 and 2007, had sued over the $150,000 contract she had with American Media, Inc., the company that owns The National Enquirer, for keeping her from speaking about it.

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law caps a deduction they have been able to take for paying their state and local taxes, according to a new analysis by the Franchise Tax Board.
