Virtue-Signaling Run Amok in America
American Thinker, by William Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 6/14/2018 12:44:04 PM

A friend of mine and I recently had a political discussion that I found disturbing. He told me that a long-time family friend had come to his house the weekend before. His friend was an academic and a black man, and their dinner discussion involved whether black men can get a fair shake in today’s world (snip) he said, if a black candidate and a white candidate were vying for the same position, he would probably offer the black man the job because he “wants to see more black people succeed in our industry,” even if the black candidate was

Virtue-Signaling is a phenomenon resulting from political correctness. Journalists and pundits seem to be more concerned about establishing their personal bias before reporting any facts or opinions.

I once had first hand experience with this phenomenon that has come about through government requirements instead of common sense. I worked for a security company where approximately one third of the work force was black. When a watch began the blacks would promptly set their rifles aside, put their feet up and go to sleep. It´s a good thing that our facility was never attacked or their laziness and incompetence would have cost a lot of lives. Yes, management was aware, management was black.

New names, like virtue signaling, come and go, but the cold facts remain.

The special accommodations overtly given to blacks are based on the premise that they are inferior and incapable of things other races do easily.
That has been the premise for Democrat treatment of blacks since the slave days and remains unchanged today.

Trump, Churchill’s Chair,
and Barack Obama
American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/16/2018 10:13:26     Post Reply
Recently, on Donald Trump’s “working visit” to the UK, environmentalist royal princes Charles and William refused to meet the President. Based on their boorish behavior, the population control liberals may be emulating Barack Obama, who exhibited hostility toward world leaders when he refused to attend Bibi Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress. Despite Charles, William, and newlywed Harry’s absence, Mr. and Mrs. Trump arrived at Windsor Castle where they were greeted by the 92-year-old Queen who didn’t invite them to a sleepover like she did the Obamas, but did serve tea. After the visit, no one reported whether or not

Why the ‘Resistance’
in the State Department
is a Gift to Trump
American Thinker, by Ishmael Jones    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/16/2018 10:12:00     Post Reply
President Trump’s diplomacy will continue to make America safe and strong, as long as he relies upon his own experience in negotiation and does not follow State Department guidance. The majority of our 75,382 State Department employees do not support our president. Many are openly scornful. Several ambassadors, ready to retire anyway and with full pensions locked in, have resigned dramatically. But because State Department protocols and diplomacy have failed us for decades – in Libya, Syria, with the creation of ISIS, Russian expansion, and North Korean belligerence – their “Resistance” has given President Trump the opportunity to do an end-run around

Twitter culls fake followers,
Democrats hardest hit
American Thinker, by Monica Showalter    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/14/2018 8:45:27     Post Reply
Twitter announced it would be culling the platform´s fake followers. It makes good business sense to do this, because fake followers distort the influence ratings for advertisers, making accounts full of fakes a money-losing proposition for advertisers (who are Twitter´s real, paying customers). If someone has fake followers, they look more influential than they really are. Well, guess what: There is an extraordinarily high number of Democrats, the kind who draw lots of media hype, with puffed up ´it´ status, loaded with fake followers. I went and checked with this site called TwitterAudit here. Some of these accounts, as both Twitter

Recycling: Another environmental

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority. Plastic bottles, newspapers, and cardboard, were just a few of the favorites you could ship to China by the ton and make a few bucks along the

Strzok’s claim of no bias

political director calls BS

Only a fool or a Democrat (the two groups considerably overlap in the United States) would believe Peter Strzok’s claim under oath that it was only the appearance of bias, not actual bias, that was the problem with his texts to his inamorata Lisa Page. Yet, the Democrats in the joint committee hearing were eager to hitch their wagon to his fate. One of them, Rep Steve Cohen of Memphis, offended many people with his claim that Strzok deserved a “Purple Heart,” oblivious to the genuine grievous physical injuries that have been honored with this medal that he trivialized.

House Dems outraged as Ryan and McCarthy
call their bluff on ‘abolish ICE’ bill
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/13/2018 8:43:24     Post Reply
All but admitting that the bill they introduced yesterday to abolish ICE was a political stunt, three House Democrats are feigning outrage (the default option for Dems ever since Trump won the presidency) that it will be promptly brought to a vote. They actually announced that they will note “no” on their own bill. (snip) Normally, members of a minority party publicly fume when their bills are not brought to a vote by the leadership of the majority. This is the standard operating procedure. But Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan – perhaps inspired by the way President Trump does things

Gunning for Judge Kavanaugh

It’s not just the wrongly decided Roe V. Wade decision that liberals fear is in jeopardy with the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. They also fear their crusade against “semi-automatic” weapons may be exposed as the semantic, visual, and judicial fraud that it is: "If you care about common sense gun violence protection, Judge Kavanaugh is your worst nightmare. (snip) The Second Amendment did not come with an asterisk nor are any of our rights enshrined in the Constitution in any way dependent on technology. Judge Kavanaugh seems to recognize that fact.

Nancy Pelosi sounding

Her mind wandering and her words not coming out right, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, 78, is sounding more addled than ever, unable to express any clear line of thought. Which is consequential if you are a Democrat (snip) Asked a question about her leadership and the pressure from Democrats for her step down, Pelosi replied: I think some of it is a little bit on the sexist side – although I wouldn’t normally say that. Except it’s like, really? Has anyone asked whatshisname, the one who’s the head of Senate?

Did Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and
Bernie Sanders Save America?
American Thinker, by Steve McCann    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 7/9/2018 8:14:37     Post Reply
The citizenry of a nation that has experienced unprecedented peace, prosperity and global or regional hegemony over four or more generations are often lulled to sleep believing there will never be an end to their good fortune. Inevitably these countries and empires have floundered and decayed as they gradually and unwittingly descended into societal, political and economic chaos (snip) Fortunately for America, the conjoined hubris of the Democratic Party hierarchy, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton combined with the socialist absolutism of Bernie Sanders, opened the door for the left to unabashedly come out of the closet during the 2016 campaign.

Who was behind Alexandria Ocasio

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article

Somebody with deep expertise on image creation got ahold of the latest darling of the left and glammed her up for her current role as the standard bearer for the socialist wing of the Democrats, the Great Hispanic Hope to lead the "browning of Amerca" toward a radical future. Sometime between 2011 and 2018, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was transformed from an earnest and nerdy wannabe entrepreneur into a glamorous radical crusader for socialism, the delusion-of-the-moment that has captured the imagination of the malcontent demographic slice of America. Ponder for a moment the difference between this close-up from her

Virtue-signaling Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel

Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel is up for re-election next year, and apparently is very worried about his chances in a city where poverty and ethnicity matters a lot.

Mayor Rahm yesterday came out in support of the expressway-blocking demonstrations. The only problem is that by Illinois state law, it is the State Police that exercise jurisdiction over the expressways. And the Illinois State Police, like the

Here´s Why Hillary Is
Running Again in 2020

That´s right: Hillary Clinton is running for president again in 2020. She has actually ramped up her campaign since her defeat in 2016! From her Twitter feed to university speeches to appearances abroad – from Ireland to Australia to India – the "I´m with her" campaign continues. (snip) The Clintons, because of their money, fixers, connections, and long held positions of power, are still widely feared in the Democratic Party. Few, if any, Democrats will risk criticizing Hillary Clinton, knowing they may appear in Trump campaign ads. Such contrariness is hazardous to a Democrat´s career and quite possibly to his

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

"I´m concerned about Kavanaugh," Paul said on Fox & Friends, alluding to the judge´s views on the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens from "unreasonable searches and seizures." Paul explained that since President Donald Trump "did such a great job" with his first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, he is keeping an "open mind" regarding Kavanaugh. But the Kentucky Republican is "worried" and "perhaps disappointed" that Kavanaugh may "cancel out Gorsuch´s
