On Excrement and ‘Civility’

There is an interesting data set out there which shows that the ‘liberals’ have lurched hard to the left since the 1990’s, whereas ‘conservatives’ have remained about the same.  This information comes from Pew Research and is material they’ve been tracking for a long time.  Here is an article about it, and below is the associated graph which visually tells the story.

Certainly, the median among ‘conservatives’ has moved to the right–but only so slightly.  The ‘liberals’, on the other hand, are moving rapidly to the left so fast and far that they may fall off the chart altogether … continue reading...

Iran and Regime Change

I have made several posts about China, due to the escalation of human rights abuses there.  But I would be remiss if I didn’t mention what is going on in Iran right now and issue some calls to action related to that country.  Unfortunately for them, affairs in Hong Kong and to a lesser degrees, China’s concentration camps, have deprived them of the scant attention that America’s leftwing MSM is willing to give to matters of actual, grave importance.  Add to that the ‘impeachment’ orgy, and its a miracle that any news about anything other than progressive self-pleasuring gets out.… continue reading...

So This Is What It Feels Like: Millions in Camps in China; the World Does Nothing

I study genocides.

When I say I ‘study’ them, I don’t mean I wait for the NYT or WAPO to take an interest in something before I imbibe the content of their headline as the exclusive content of my views.  I read books–lots of them.  I watch documentaries, when I think I can get something from them a book can’t get me.  I have even helped facilitate the release of previously unavailable or hard to find primary source material such as the Bahutu Manifesto [Rwandan genocide], The Memoirs of Naim Bey [Armenian genocide], and Allowing the Destruction of Life Unworthy continue reading...

Compulsory Vaccination – Compulsory Sterlization, Public Health Tyranny

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision, Buck vs. Bell

Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.

John Holdren, science ‘czar’ to Barack Obama.

How did the “Astonishing number of White Nationalists” do in the 2018 Midterms? A recap

Back in June, NBC breathlessly regurgitated ‘data from the Southern Poverty Law Center’ asserting that a ‘record number’ of ‘white nationalists’ were running for office, ’emboldened’ by Donald Trump.  The NPCs everywhere then reported it dutifully–as they have been conditioned to do so—as self-evidently significant and undeniably revealing important information about Republicans, and, well, literally everybody who is not a liberal Democrat progressive.

I have been monitoring such nonsense for quite awhile.  For example, I showed in this post how the SPLC’s own ‘data’ shows that there wasn’t a ‘record number’ running at all; the SPLC itself had … continue reading...

Jim VandeHei’s Four Fake Ways to ‘fix’ fake news

I don’t know Jim VandeHei, and despite being a heavy consumer of news and information, don’t frequent Axios news, unless it is referred to me.  In fact, that’s how I saw his article on ‘4 ways to fix fake news‘; I saw it on the Drudge.  I don’t have an ax to grind about Axios.  I’m indifferent.  But, if his article achieved anything, it is to persuade me that I should take a position re: Axios:  against it.

He lists 4 ‘provocative’ ideas.  I’m going to take serious issue one of them in particular, and then circle back … continue reading...

Accusation as Political Weapon

So, here we go again.

The Democrats have once again turned to alleging that something occurred in the distant past, with no way to come close to what could count as a proof or disproof that the incident occurred.  I have already detailed my principled objections to this as it related to Roy Moore so the reader can look at that for more background.

What’s setting me off as I am writing this is the overwhelming hypocrisy and even rank stupidity surrounding this approach, by people who have built their entire political machine around the ‘victim.’  Meanwhile, they have no … continue reading...

Putting Hysterics Into Proportion: The Alleged Threat of the Rise of White Racism

shooting-fascists

I have many other things I’d rather be writing about, but the ‘left-wing’ hysterics about so called white nationalists on the rise thanks to Trump is something that I feel is necessary to talk about.  Necessary, because if these hysterics are not shown definitively to be discredited, there is no doubt in my mind that there will be violence–from the left.  This violence will increase in scale and scope quite a long ways before your average liberal says, “Ah, well, that was a tad too far, even for me.”  In the meantime, the idea is that “racists” deserve no quarter, … continue reading...

Snopes: “Uncommon Core” Article… FALSE

So, I had the misfortune to ‘share’ a link that I saw on my phone which turned out be ‘fake.’  It wasn’t until several hours later that I had a chance to investigate the details for myself.  As usual, Snopes had spoken.  As usual, Snopes had found a way to insert its bias into the article.  Ironically, people trust Snopes in the same uncritical fashion that we tend to trust fake news stories.  I am reposting my Facebook comment outlining my own research.  The purpose is not only to skewer Snopes, which I do tend to relish, but also to … continue reading...

The Rise and Fall of Scott Walker’s Presidential Fortunes

So word is dribbling out that Gov. Scott Walker is withdrawing from the 2016 presidential race.  As a staunch Christian-constitutionalist-libertarian-republican-conservative, I think the move is a good one.  However, it is only ‘good’ if the right lessons are learned, and already I’m hearing a bunch of junk that just isn’t true.

I say that as someone who lives in the state that Walker is presently the governor of and who has better than average insight into what Walker’s supporters… or shall I say, former supporters… are really thinking.  True, my anecdotal impressions can’t uncritically be applied to the whole ‘conservative … continue reading...

Dylann Roof’s Reaction to the Two Minutes of Hate

So, this whole Confederate flag issue is still out there, percolating.   It is the most recent example of Orwell’s “Two Minutes of Hate” out of many.

Let’s see, there was the infantile, self-righteous outrage against all those who opposed compulsory vaccination–inspired by an ‘outbreak’ of a measly 150 cases.    Do you know the etymology of the word ‘measly‘?  It’s a bit telling, in this case.  We had the whole Baltimore thing, and the Ferguson thing.  Oh yea, and the hapless rural pizza place that ended up on the business end of a societal pile-on to end … continue reading...

The Abject Lunacy of Gay Marriage Agitators

I had really thought I had said all I wanted to say about gay marriage, but then a commenter said something that has made it so that I cannot repress this further.  You can see my reply there, but the gist of it is that I feel that what we are seeing in the “gay ‘marriage'” agenda is the final fruition of a completely a-rational manifestation of an entirely feelings-based movement.  I say ‘a-rational’ rather than irrational, because even though the arguments are irrational, that only matters insofar as there is actually an attempt to have an argument–in the … continue reading...

Black Lives Matter, Abortion, Propaganda, Humanitarian Punishment, and Self-Rule

C.S. Lewis makes a fine point in his essay against a ‘Humanitarian theory of Punishment.’  He argues that unless punishment is tied directly to the objective nature of the crime, extreme abuses are near at hand.  For example, by viewing the crime as a symptom of some kind of disease, the perpetrator is subjected to ‘treatment,’ which can go on forever.  Not too long ago I read of a man released from an institution who had been there for decades, when the penalty for the crime would have entailed just a year or two of incarceration.  Lewis also takes aim … continue reading...

The Drone Wars: Introduction

Your first inclination when I refer to ‘the drone wars’ is probably to the unmanned (but sometimes armed) aerial vehicles that are clogging air spaces and the public imagination, but in fact this is the title of a new series that I will be working on inspired slightly from the Star Wars episode, The Clone Wars, and inspired more seriously from those first unmanned (but definitely armed) aerial ‘vehicles’ we call bees.   While the ‘drone’ bees do not quite fit the analogy I intend to ultimately draw, the overall social structure of life in the bee hive do, what with … continue reading...
