The Susan Rice Story: Crickets and Squirrels

Last weekend it broke that former Obama apparatchik Susan Rice apparently spent 2016 and the transition period collecting classified intel on Donald Trump and his campaign/transition staffs. For exactly what purposes is unclear. Rice’s responses have been of the “You can’t prove it, I didn’t leak it and It wasn’t illegal” variety.

You might recall Ms. Rice, was the chief disinformation dispenser for the Benghazi cluster-eff.

This was a follow-on to the Evelyn Farkas fark-up, adding fuel to the fire that there was vast, Obama administration-wide conspiracy to gather and distribute classified surveillance intelligence that could be portrayed as embarrassing to Trump and his people.

An interesting sidelight about this bombshell of a story is its coverage or lack thereof. It broke last weekend yet, somehow, the major media, those great guys and gals that cover every utterance of Trump and so many Republicans, have helpfully relayed the “Trump is a Putin puppet” meme slavishly almost every hour of every day since it surfaced last year, have yet to get to the story, and I write this Thursday night.

Wait, I tell a lie. There have been a couple of odd stories about Susan Rice issuing mysterious denials concerning something that is entirely legal and hardly anything at all… The inestimable Mollie Hemingway has a great piece here.

The Farkas revelations too have been ignored.

Ahem…

Yeah, no media bias here… move along.

Obviously, the MSM is waiting for their cues from the DNC, via the New York Times, Washington Post and AP — all of which have turned a blind eye to a story that if it was committed by a Republican would be 24/7 news.

Eventually we’ll see a few dimwitted Dem parrots… er… politicians will chime in reinforcing the anointed meme. Clearly the DNC hasn’t figured out the angle yet.

Question, if the MSM doesn’t cover something, is it still news? (Their answer is ‘No.’)

NCAA Issues Hostage Demands

The NCAA, putatively a nonpartisan college athletics organization, has now demanded that the sate of North Carolina laws enact laws that the NCAA approves of rather than those legislated by the representatives of the citizens of the state or the NCAA will not allow any special NCAA events take place in the state, like, forevuh!

It is specifically trying to promote laws favorable to “transgender” people rather than the vast majority of citizens of the state. It is estimated that “trangendered” people make up less than 1% of the population. In other words 99+% are supposed to bend over backwards to accommodate a confused <1%.

North Carolina’s representatives in Washington need to move against the NCAA and remove its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status since it has become highly politically active, in opposition to its charter. Additionally, the state should move against the organization in civil courts.

The NCAA has become nothing more than a political activist organization and should be treated as such. It is an ally of the Democratic party.

Interestingly, the NCAA has been very circumspect on allowing “transgender” athletes, there are very few of them, to play on the teams they want to play on. Of course hypocrisy is the mark of the liberal.

I have been boycotting the NCAA for awhile now… And found I can live without it. And it also bleeds ESPN. Join me!

Why We Can’t Have Nice Things #8764904

As I endlessly remark like a retarded parrot, “Liberals will politicize everything.”

The next example is the perfectly harmless house-hunting/house remodeling hybrid TV show, “Fixer Upper.”

It seems that the cultural commissars have run the show through the Elite Cultural Approval Filter and found it lacking in acceptable content, and therefore — PURIFY!

The hosts, the telegenic Gaines couple, Chip and Joanna, apparently haven’t featured enough politically correct house hunters on the show, specifically “same sex couples.” In addition, the Gaines go to a church and seem to be believers (cue smelling salts for the cultural commissar peanut gallery). Furthermore, this church has unacceptably Christian concerns about homosexuality. So — PURIFY!

That the show is made in the Waco, Texas, area, where “same sex couples” don’t exactly grow on trees, does not seem to have occurred to the liberal Torquemadas. Or possibly it did and they didn’t give poop. Guilty until proven innocent — PURIFY!

Interestingly, an interracial couple — younger black woman and older white man (her former college soccer coach) — appeared on the show, indicating that the Gaines might not be the most bigoted of people but to our cultural inquisitors that’s merely avoiding the charges of racism and ageism (for the moment).

The Gaines themselves have shown no political leanings either way and apparently have not made a statement on the accusations. More can be found here on this depressing story.

Expect HGTV (which has been mugged several times already by the LGBTQWERTY lobby already), advertisers on the network and the show and the Gaines themselves to be forced to crawl on the broken glass of political correctness and issue some kind of mealy “apology” filled all the buzz words like “toleration,” “diversity” and “respect.”

The lesson is that no matter who you are, what you do, where you are, you will be forced into the cultural wars. There will be know refuge from the Javerts. The liberals will hunt everyone down and make them swear fealty to liberalism or be purified in the liberal fires of (secular) damnation.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

But not to leave on a sour note. Relish this video of arrogant liberals swearing there could never be a President Trump. Especially sweet is the knowledge that the abrasively arrogant John Oliver got it so wrong — and guaranteed that a molecule of humility has yet to enter his body. It’s a known scientific fact that when a liberal is proven wrong, they redouble their arrogance.

They can be defeated!

The Might of Idiocy

Here’s a little Thanksgiving untreat — the dumbest story of the year. It is revelatory of how stupid a large portion of America is and how polluted our cultural and educational system has become.

Hilary Duff, a B List actress and singer who had some success as a teen on, I think, the Disney Channel back in the 1990s, went to a Hollywood costume party dressed as a Pilgrim and her boyfriend accompanied her as an Indian.

Admittedly, the saucy outfit wasn’t exactly what real Pilgrim’s would have worn (a bit much leg, ahem), but harmless enough. The Indian outfit was a typical buckskin and feathers outfit, relatively historically accurate. The beard was a bit off since Indians don’t sport beards.

But of course, as with everything under the sun, libtards had to freak out and turn it into an issue. Apparently self-appointed libtard cultural commissars have declared dressing as a Pilgrim and an Indian to be not acceptable. In fact such activity seems to be equated with a major crime.

An example of such idiocy is Hilary Duff And Boyfriend Offend With Racist Pilgrim And Native American Costumes,” from professional clown HuffPo’s Colby Delbyck.

Young master Colby declares these to be “the worst couples costume ever.” I rather doubt that. People have dressed as Adolph Hitler and Eva Braun, as various grotesque diseases, Jack-the-Ripper and victim, etc. Ah, the libtard, everything is such an extreme.

Then Commissar Colby asserts, “cultures are not a costume.” Really? Then what would a costume be? Costumes have long been defined by various cultures. They are often identifiers of particular cultures and subcultures. Colby, were you awake in anthropology class?

Sadly, it is ignorant fools like Colby (named after a cheese, which is a cultural thing, too), who provide cultural material to people. Readers might assume that the writers of such material are somewhat informed but they would be disappointed. Most writer/reporters today are shockingly ignorant of even the basics. But that doesn’t stop them from going into overdrive on almost everything. They seem to try to make up for their ignorance with passion (usually anger).

Colby somehow drags in protests over a pipeline in North Dakota. Like I said, the libtard will politicize everything because in their shallow minds, everything is connected. Halloween Party Costume=Oil Pipeline Protest.

Such mentality used to be recognized as a mental defect, or simply sloppy thinking. Today it is the pure form of libtard intellect.

Amusingly, Colby insists that Hilary and beau have committed “racist” offenses, unaware that Pilgrims aren’t a race. But then “racist” doesn’t mean what it used to, being nothing more than an invective hurled these days wantonly like “dummy.”

As for the legions of people allegedly being offended, I doubt anyone not with a hypersensitive nitro glycerine-level of offense-seeking was remotely moved by these costumes. If anything, I’m offended by the infantilism of people like Colby. Humanity is doomed with folks as moronic as Colby (and so many others whining) proliferating.

I realize that “Pilgrims” have been declared politically incorrect and there’s an attempt to distort their history and expunge them from their important role in American history. That’s very sad and doesn’t say anything positive about the folks doing the purging — including large numbers of supposedly “educated” people and people responsible for educating the next generations.

Needless to say, the average Pilgrim, women and children included, are easily twice the man as people like Colby and the typical Pajama Boy libtard of today. Colby and his ilk would have lasted about 8 seconds in 1620 North America.

Actually he would have never survived the voyage. In fact, he would never have had the intellectual fiber to be the independent thinking, deep believer in God that the Pilgrims were. People like Colby need coddling mother government, fueled by the fruits of people Colby hates, to keep him living in the luxury he so deplores in others.

Furthermore, Colby would not be enjoying the life he leads now were it not for people like the Pilgrims. Ingrate is too weak a word to describe the libtard of today. It is a grain of sand on a vast beach of ingratitude and hypocrisy.

In addition, weak, easily moved minds loathe those who have deep beliefs. The believer is to be mocked by those subsumed in neverending doubt papered over by conceit and arrogance.

But back to the main point. Why can’t people like Colby let others wear what they wish to a harmless costume party? These very same judges eagerly shout down anyone commenting on “slut-wear” sold to children for everyday clothing. “Do not judge!” they intone as they immediately rush to judgment.

Why the constant public trials and the eventual pressure to make Duff grovel like a penitente from the ages of the Spanish Inquisition?

Ah, but that is just the point, it is an inquisition; a modern inquisition, conducted by a religious movement which deludes itself that it is not a religion.

These people are stoking a cultural war.

Myron Magnet Speaks the Truth

Myron Magnet is one of my favorite writers. He can often be read at the indispensable City Journal.

I can’t do any better than this takeaway from the recent election, Donald Trump and the Rejection of Progressivism. It begins with this and gets better: “One message to take away from Donald Trump’s presidential victory: Americans don’t want to be ruled.

Go read and enjoy. This week the future of this country suddenly became much brighter.

Our Borg Left

Can there be any doubt that anything that the left touches becomes corrupted.

Here is a story about the nominally nonpartisan Committee to Protect Journalists. Now it has come out with a statement that Donald Trump is an unprecedented threat to press freedom though it insists that it’s not taking sides in the upcoming election. They said that with a straight face.

Seriously.

Admittedly any group of journalists is likely to be left-leaning and it is usually just a matter of time before it removes any pretense and just goes whole-hog into auxiliary service of the Democratic Party.

Interestingly, Hillary Clinton has her own plans to limit press freedoms. She wants to outlaw stories, movies, whatever, that paint politicians in a bad light.

CPJ seems to have missed that. Probably because most of their members decided not to report negative stories about Hillary Clinton.

And then there’s this piece about our wonderful public education system, which was drafted into service of the Democratic Party a long time ago.

I guess the surprising thing about this “letter” drafted by several “Teachers of the Year” is that they hadn’t done this before.

They certainly don’t hold back, pretty much equating Trump with the most heinous villains in history.

They also trot out lots of perfect moppet anecdotes of fear with tots crying on cue, “Mr. Supersmawt teacher, why does that scawwy Donald Twump want to huwt me?”

Our humble teachers are taking this extraordinary step… to save the children (from the Abominable Trumble).

Remember back during the first Clinton interregnum when so much of their calumny (especially at the EPA) was committed “for the children.”

Of course all of this couched in the insufferability that the conceited teaching profession has polished to a high sheen. These people think a lot of themselves and little of anyone who thinks differently (i.e. isn’t a liberal). To think, these people are paid by the taxpayer that these teachers so loathe.

The public education system needs to be torn down, sown with salt and its braying donkey membership put to digging ditches or handing out sippy straws and butt pillows at the old folks home… er… retirement community – actual, productive jobs rather than the well-compensated, publicly-funded liberal propagandameisters that they are now.

I’m not the first to note that the left ruins everything it touches and turns those things into tools of liberal propaganda, coercion, cultural and political warfare. Anything that resists is targeted for destruction.

Like the Borg, you will be assimilated or destroyed. There is no refuge from them.

Outrage

That’s a frequent position of so many, if not all, liberals.

They are constantly outraged about something and just can’t let it go. No matter nor event is too small to be above (below?) outrage.

The latest is the Trump video with Billy Bush, wherein Trump sounds like a frat boy. Of course liberals are “outraged.” As are more than a few Republicans.

That Trump spoke as he did shouldn’t surprise many. He’s known as a crude braggard. The surprising thing to me is that more of these haven’t appeared. They should, I think, be about as remarkable as Bob Costas talking about sports or King Barry talking about himself.

And, let’s be honest, has no one spoken this way about the opposite sex amongst “friends”? Seriously. I’m pretty sure even Hillary Clinton, at least when she was younger, might have a few times lasciviously spoken of some desirable amongst her fellow liberal feminists and journalist pals.

Heather Mac Donald, in the always readable City Journal, hits this topic perfectly in “Trumped-Up Outrage.”

She notes the left’s supernova of hypocrisy. The left has been the encourager for decades of the “Let it all hang out and don’t be judgmental about it” mode of behavior. Isn’t it the left that tells us the unbridled id is the source of truth? Isn’t it the left that killed sexual “morality” and “old-fashioned” social values? Didn’t they dance on the grave of “Victorian Values” and “Eisenhowerian/1950’s” square America? Isn’t “Getting Your Groove On” and “Hooking Up” the desired goal of all interaction according to the left?

Mac Donald is particularly harsh on the left’s schizo approach to campus life wherein women are encouraged to act like rabbits in heat on the one hand, yet we are to be aware of the “Campus Rape Epidemic” and also be utterly focused on the brittle shrinking violets on campus who need constant protection from language and behavior which they disagree with or don’t like and must have “safe spaces” where they can shelter from the harsh or mildly uncomfortable realities of life.

As we saw during the Clinton years, such behavior can be quickly excused and buried. All one needs are flexible morals, a single-minded focus on power and a compliant puppet media.

I ask you this, if Donald Trump were the nominee of the the Democratic Party and, say, Mitt Romney the Republican Party, would this video have ever surfaced?

Now to look at the Republicans running for the tall grass. Many of them are the usual RINO suspects and more than a few had not even endorsed Trump – yet suddenly the media treats them as respectable party grandees. That was to be expected. The worrisome thing for me is the more pragmatic conservatives who suggest that Trump should resign or step aside.

I don’t know what they could be thinking. Perhaps they have become delusional in the way that people facing some horrible decision become delusional or focus on side issues.

Trump is not leaving nor is some white knight coming to our rescue. The simple reality is that it’s either Trump or Clinton. Ronald Reagan is not coming from the grave to save the day.

I say it again, it’s either Trump or Clinton. It’s either an imperfect vessel or a black hole of evil from which no goodness of light can emanate. Take your pick.

Trump might not be a very good though constantly disappointing president. We don’t know.

What we do know is that Clinton will be at permanent war with conservatives and the Constitution. She will stop at nothing to destroy her enemies, expand the size of regulatory state, put the populace into the service of the Democratic Party and under the boot of the central government.

All the while fattening her wallet and those of her cronies.

Her little dog, Grinch Kaine, is less personally corrupt but even more committed to building the socialist state.

If Trump loses, we’ll almost certainly have eight years of Clinton (unless she dies) and then we’ll be fighting the same battle in 2024. There likely won’t be some kind of return to sanity in 2020, as many seem to imagine, because by that time a whole generation of “yutes” will have grown up knowing nothing but Mother Government and the liberal-controlled culture, while their Obama-loving/Clinton-excusing procreators will have never educated them as to the real birds and bees. The only thing they will know is that the past was bad and filled with racists, sexists, greedy robber barons and other oppressors and exploiters who ruined everything and they knew nothing of any use to the sophisticated modern person. The past should be ignored.

These man-children will have no concept of personal responsibility, independence and self-sufficiency. To them everything will come via the government or be overseen by elite school-educated enlightened (and highly-compensated) technocrats and all social interaction will be overseen by the same as well while a great purge of those uttering “unacceptable” speech is embarked upon.

Businesses of any size will act as government surrogates, if they want to survive and provide “employment” for legions of “right-thinking” party supporters. They will also be holding pens for bureaucrats and the well-connected who will be richly compensated for their good service. People with unacceptable views or those engaging in “hate” speech will be fired of pushed out through social and managerial pressure. Firms retaining “unacceptable” people will find themselves ineligible for government contracts or government-regulated business, under regulatory investigation (including from newly-minted cultural commissars), the victim of social campaigns from NGOs empowered and financed by the government and agitation from within by right-minded, culturally progressive “employees.”

The U.S. will resemble an enormous public school, with the president being the principal, politicians and bureaucrats being the teachers and staff while the rest of us are consigned to learn how to be proper, politically correct people. All the great angsts of growing up will manifest themselves as society-wide problems that can never be solved, yet will consume so much human energy. The touching but firm guiding hand of elementary school through the social awkwardness of junior high to the hormonal frustration and constant feeling of inadequacy will be the life, while one is incapable of being relieved because one will never graduate to adulthood. You will be a child and always will be…

Now let Mother Government tuck you in and keep you safe from those haters who want to oppress you. Don’t forget to pay your taxes and do everything I say, my little genius. Maybe there’ll be a treat for you in the morning. Mommy knows best.

All “national” elections will then depend on who can seem the coolest, promise the most goodies and offer the greatest protection of the personal smartphone-controlled cocoon. And we know which party is best at that.

Reality will have been banished until it can no longer be denied when it returns in some kind of quasi-Biblesque deluge.
