Recently, however, Professor Brown has been attacked as a racist and a white supremacist.
Let me stop you right there: we will get nowhere in an environment where these terms are used unironically. “Racist” simply means someone who notices that there are genetic differences between groups, and that each group prefers its own; “white supremacist” apparently means someone who wants the latter for some groups of white people. As long as we tolerate these nonsense terms, they will be used against us, ever-broadening in definition. They are terms of manipulation, not a part of useful dialogue.
But the rule of law demands that we distinguish between political sins and federal felonies. As the record now stands, Donald Trump appears to be guilty of political sins, but not federal felonies or impeachable offenses.
The purpose of these show trials is not to take down Trump, since that is impossible, but to advance careers by those who want to win favor from the useful idiots and swamp creatures who support the Left. People are making fortunes off of the fearful herd and its fixation on impeachment. In a dying civilization, you are either a wealthy denialist or an outsider realist, and most people want to be successful so they are desperately clinging to anything that offers them hope of continuing to live in denial, and the impeachment talk gives them a little boost of that hope every day. Fortunes are being made, but that has zero bearing on whether impeachment will happen.
“I have asked Secretary of State to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers.”
They are mostly mad because Trump shotgunned this one past a media blockade that consisted of reporting the story and then immediately flushing it to the back pages. Now the issue is out in the open, and everyone can see that diversity consists of a paradox, namely that if every group acts for itself, we are going to validate white groups being nationalistic or have to deny minority groups that right. If we are going to be fair, that is. This means that our choices are to support either Hitler or “separate but equal,” and that essentially points out that the past seven decades of American law were based on lies.
Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva may be incarcerated and potentially prevented from standing in October’s presidential election but the leftist leader’s advantage in polls continues to grow.
Figures published by pollsters Datafolha on Wednesday showed the former president’s share of the vote has risen to 39 percent from 30 last month.
It means he now has more than double the number of his nearest challenger, right wing candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who is up to 19 percent from 17 last month.
Leftism: it is a hard drug to kick. To kick, you have to admit that all of it is a lie, starting with the notion of “equality.” That means, in turn, that you have to accept your position in life. If you sell hot dogs on the street, you are not a great philosopher, politician, or warrior; you are a hot-dog seller. Your IQ represents the limit of your power, and most of us have no business doing anything but being functionaries. That irritates the herd, mainly because humans are by nature self-deluding and self-destructive, so they rally behind wide-eyed salesmen like da Silva and the cynical, corrupt, and vicious manipulators who come with him. They will keep voting Leftist even if it means certain doom, like a drunk man chasing the moon until he falls off a cliff.
Preston was charged with shooting a firearm within 1,000 feet (305m) of a school…The man with the flamethrower, Corey Long, was not injured. Long was found guilty of disorderly conduct, according to court records. He has appealed the sentence, and the appeal trial will start in January.
If you needed any further proof that justice in America is politically-slanted, you have it here. Granted, Preston is not a perfect defendant, but those really do not exist on a practical level. His legal mistake was firing a gun at someone without killing him; if you are actually threatened by someone, and it is legitimate to fire a gun, it is expected that you will actually complete the task and blow him away. His political mistake was being Right-wing in a Left-wing era. Our mistake is in tolerating this politically-slanted prosecution.
I first developed narcolepsy when I was 15 – I was one of the unlucky few who developed it after having the swine flu jab. In 2010, during the swine flu outbreak, people at risk of getting it were given a vaccine called Pandemrix. But it later transpired it had triggered narcolepsy in a small number of us (about one in 55,000, according to a study from Public Health England which found an increased risk among children given the vaccine).
All conspiracy theories are metaphor. When the anti-vaxxers say they fear autism, they might actually be thinking of many incidents such as this, where every new vaccine represents a roll of the dice. Do you get narcolepsy, or maybe thirty years on, some random cancer? Medicine has no answers and, because doctors are individuals who care about their paychecks more than some failing society, no inclination to look for them.
In 2016, according to the most recent data from the Census Bureau, there were approximately 73,586,000 people under 18 in the United States, and 38,365,000 of them — or 52.1 percent — resided in households in which one or more persons received benefits from a means-tested government program.
The New Deal and Great Society programs surely could not be backdoor socialism, our pundits nattered on, already neurotic on coffee and their own career aspirations. Then during the Clinton years, when the rolls expanded, they told us that this was merely a way of getting over those race relations problems. Finally, the Obama regime brought about massive expansion. “Still not socialism!” wagged the fingers of the elite Leftist reporters and experts. Now we see: it was backdoor socialism, all along.
The first study looked at trends across 18 high-income countries and found that most countries experienced declines in life expectancy in 2015. This is the first time in recent decades that so many high-income countries simultaneously experienced declines in life expectancy for both men and women.
Humans are suicidal lemmings. Once they set up a good country, they start “civilizing” it by removing risk to the stupid and finding jobs for the useless. They congratulate themselves on how progressive they are! Soon they wake up, or rather their grandkids wake up, and realize that to be above-average intelligence means that you are babysitting all of that stupid and useless while it takes advantage of the society you made. In theory, you get paid a lot to deal with this, so it’s all OK, but in reality, most of what you earn gets frittered away in taxes and buying your way out of problems like ghettos, defective work, shoddy construction, red tape, etc. At that point, the smart humans start dying out and soon only the stupid and useless remain.
By the way, the poop patrolers earn $71,760 a year, which swells to $184,678 with mandated benefits.
Here you see how socialism paralyzes economies. Every expenditure must carry everyone else, so every job created must fund healthcare for a dozen people, which means that every job is very expensive and so fewer jobs are offered. This is common sense to a business owner, but a mystery to the average wage-slave voter, who wonders why they don’t just “print more money.” The new American economy is based on benefits, not salary, with the new kings being the people who work for government.
With CEO Eddie Lampert at the helm, Sears has been trimming its real estate footprint as sales dwindle at its stores and shoppers increasingly opt to ring up purchases online or outside of shopping malls. Sears is currently evaluating a bid from Lampert’s hedge fund, ESL Investments, where ESL would buy the Kenmore appliance brand from Sears for $400 million.
How do you screw up a brand as powerful as Sears? You can start by not cutting prices to match online costs, and having bloated staff heavy on the affirmative action hiring, as well as a hostile board that just wants to sell off the useful brands (Kenmore still makes great stuff, unlike the fancypants appliances that break within two years) and go home with the profits. It is still amazing to see such intense incompetence on display.
It’s not that Cohen and Manafort aren’t shady people. They are. It’s that the American public can see that Washington D.C. is teeming with shady people and those with the right connections get off scot-free.
The Left has been looking for a pretext — a pre-emptive justification — to launch impeachment. They have done this since Trump got elected. All means of doing so have failed, including this latest media buzz, mainly because in order to get these convictions, they Left had to look more deeply at the Right than it looks at itself, and no one likes hypocrisy.
Democracy and diversity are what socialists say when out of power; tyranny and authoritarianism are what they practice once in power.
Good reasons to avoid ever supporting democracy and diversity.
Everything from late-night television and Hollywood movies to the NFL and sitcoms had become politicized, or perhaps even weaponized as useful in the cultural struggle to create a progressive U.S. liberated from its past traditions and norms. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and other groups were branded as mainstream progressive voices and their critics as haters, racists, and fascists.
No one can say it out loud: we are Rome 2.0. Like Rome, we chose administrative methods over organic methods, and now have become disunified under a landslide of democracy, equality, diversity, feminism, consumerism, and self-important solipsism. That is what happens when your society decides that it is more important to have conformist warm bodies who serve The System than intelligent, moral people who know what is right, sane, wise, and optimal. Until we reverse that path, we are going to experience the abnormal as the normal, with brief interruptions as people like Trump and Farage try to save us from ourselves.
President Trump didn’t win the 2016 election because he’s exceptionally cunning. He won because his opponent was the exact opposite.
Hillary Clinton — like her husband Bill — is exceptionally cunning. She knows exactly how to tip-toe around the rules, say the right thing to appease her audience, measure engagement statistics, hit hot-button issues, and most of all, hide her immoral acts behind technical legality. If anything, she was the most cunning candidate we have ever had, and she almost won. Trump won because his analytical power was greater: instead of focusing on cunning, he looked toward what was actually happening out there and in the gap between public image and reality, saw opportunity and took it.
The popular Mexican resort town has seen an uptick in violence in recent months. In April, 14 murders were reported in 36 hours.
¡Queremos libre al Chapo! People are going to realize that El Chapo is the drug lord equivalent of Saddam Hussein. He may be brutal, but he keeps order; he is less brutal than what comes afterwards as everyone who was less competent then jockeys for power. Caught in our American suburban “good versus evil” mental motif, we see a Hussein or Chapo as a bad guy and figure that if we remove bad, good will reign, forgetting that good is rare and if bad is in power, it is because everything else is worse. I suspect that El Chapo will not be convicted and in fact will be returned to Mexico to end the instability threatening both the United States and Mexico, and that no one will make any serious investigation of why Americans have such an insatiable appetite for drugs and what it has to do with the fall of Rome 2.0.
While the details regarding how Rivera may have gamed the system remain unclear, Vaughan said many of the cases prosecuted in the past have seen an illegal immigrant simply purchase fraudulent identities.
This one is easy to solve: let the parents of Mollie Tibbets sue any party that aided and abetted in allowing this illegal alien to stay in the USA. The good people in Mexico do not enter the US illegally; the bad ones do (this is a separate issue from whether diversity works, and the answer there is “no”). If you allow a known criminal to enter a nice community, and he commits a criminal act after that point, you should be facing a sizzling hot lawsuit. A few million dollars later, those higher labor costs will seem relatively cheap.
