    Of Crudeness and Truth

    Nothing scandalizes a leftist like the truth. Point out that women and men are different, that black Americans commit a disproportionate amount of violent crime, that most terrorist acts are committed by Muslims, and the Left leaps to its collective feet in openmouthed shock, like Margaret Dumont after a Groucho Marx wisecrack. This is racism! This is sexism! This is some sort of phobia! I’m shocked, shocked to find facts being spoken in polite company!

    No one is really shocked, of course. This is simply a form of bullying. The Left has co-opted our good manners and our good will in order to silence our opposition to their bad policies. The idea is to make it seem impolite and immoral to mention the obvious.

    The bullying is highly effective and very dangerous. In England, in the city of Rotherham, at least 1,400 non-Muslim girls, some as young as 11, were brutally raped by Muslim immigrants over a period of years in the 2000s. Police and other officials worked to keep the facts hidden because, according to multiple reports, they were afraid of being called racist. Think about that: police officers did not want to seem racist, so they stood by and let their city’s children be raped. The same thing goes on in other cities in England and throughout Europe. And in fact, some who have spoken out have had their careers curtailed by manufactured scandal. The message is clear: it’s just not nice to tell the truth. It’s just not done. Don’t do it.

    Here in the states, the First Amendment has so far allowed old-fashioned American loudmouths to fight the system whenever they could find ways around our monolithic corporate media. But the Empire of Lies is quick to strike back. Google/YouTube now stands charged by multiple accusers of singling out conservative voices for censorship, “fact-checking,” and demonetization. Hidden-camera videos released by Project Veritas this week show Twitter employees conspiring to “shadow ban” conservatives on their system. On campus, intelligent conservative speakers of good will like Ben Shapiro, Charles Murray, and Cristina Hoff-Somers have faced violent protests meant to shut them up.

    No person of importance on the right seeks to silence anyone on the left. The Left, on the other hand, is broadly committed to ostracizing, blacklisting, and even criminalizing right-wing speech.

    Enter President Donald Trump. He is a rude and crude person. He speaks like a Queens real estate guy on a construction site. And because he does not have good manners, he thoughtlessly breaks the rules with which the Left has sought to muzzle those who disagree with them. In this regard, I frequently compare Trump to Randle Patrick McMurphy, the loudmouthed, ill-mannered roustabout from Ken Kesey’s brilliant novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. McMurphy comes into an insane asylum controlled by a pleasant, smiling nightmare of a head nurse named Ratched. Nurse Ratched, while pretending to be the soul of motherly care, is actually a castrating, silencing tyrant. Her rules of good manners, supposedly fashioned for the benefit of all, are really a system of mental slavery. All of McMurphy’s salient character flaws suddenly become heroic in the context of her oppression. Only his belligerent ignorance of what constitutes good behavior can overturn the velvet strangulation of her rule.

    For Nurse Ratched, read Hillary Clinton, CNN, the New York Times, Yale University, Twitter, and Google/YouTube—all the tender ministers of polite silence and enforced dishonesty. If Donald Trump’s boorishness crashes like a bull through the crystal madhouse of their leftism—well, good. It’s about time.

    I don’t know exactly what Trump said in a closed-door meeting with senators at the White House this week. Unnamed sources say that he referred to some African countries and Haiti as “shitholes.” Maybe so; sounds like him. In any case, when it comes to a chance to attack Trump, our journalists don’t waste time with fact-gathering or source-identifying. Like Madonna, they just strike a pose. Various media knuckleheads have reacted to the alleged comment by calling Trump “racist,” “Nazi,” “Evil,” and a “terrorist sympathizer.”

    (Personally, my first thought on hearing about the remark was: “What squirrely little tattle-tale of a weasel went running to the press with that?” But never mind. That’s just me.)

    Let’s state the obvious. Some countries are shitholes. To claim that this is racist is racist. They are not shitholes because of the color of the populace but because of bad ideas, corrupt governance, false religion, and broken culture. Further, most of the problems in these countries are generated at the top. Plenty of rank-and-file immigrants from such ruined venues ultimately make good Americans—witness those who came from 1840s potato-famine Ireland, a shithole if ever there was one! It takes caution and skill to separate the good from the bad.

    For these very reasons, absurd immigration procedures like chain migration, lotteries, and unvetted entries are deeply destructive. They can lead to the sort of poor choices that create a Rotherham. Trump’s suggestions—to vet immigrants for pro-American ideas and skills that will help our country—are smart and reasonable and would clearly make the system better if implemented.

    So, when it comes to the Great Shithole Controversy of 2018, my feeling is: I do not care, not even a little. I’m sorry that it takes someone like Trump to break the spell of silence the Left is forever weaving around us. I wish a man like Ronald Reagan would come along and accomplish the same thing with more wit and grace. But that was another culture. History deals the cards it deals; we just play them. Trump is what we’ve got.

    For all the bad language, for all the loose talk, I would rather hear a man speak as a man without fear of the Nurse Ratcheds in the press and the academy than have him neutered and gagged by a system of good manners that has been misused as a form of oppression. Better impoliteness than silence. Better crudeness than lies.

    We have seen the effect of uncontrolled immigration on Europe. It is very, very bad. The fact is: some countries are shitholes. I don’t want this to become one of them.

      stop right there. Having acknowledged that he doesn’t know what Trump said behind closed doors, neither does he know what Reagan said behind closed doors. I have it on good authority that Reagan was not unfamiliar with the word ‘fuck’ and its variations and wielded them all with some authority.

      This entire discussion from the right has ceded the field to the opposition and allowed them to frame the battle. It’s a shameful defensive crouch. The battlefield we want is the one that exposes the opposition using the American polity as a commodity of deplorables to be bred like cattle for demographic power thru economic dependency. Instead, we’re playing THEIR game instead of ours.

      As for vulgarity, Trump’s communication team let him down big time. The first sentence out of his mouth should have been “Since when do the American people take lectures on morality from the person who stood on the Senate floor and referred to our military as ‘Nazis'”?.

      Not to change the subject, but look what just popped up.

      It’s the only paragraph I took umbrage with, but I wasn’t going to leave it out. (Also, “Trump is rude and crude,” because I regularly engage in MUCH “ruder and cruder” dialogue), but I found the rest of the piece to be on point and fairly objective.

      (Plus, the other thread petered out and it was in my inbox…)

      I think Trump knows what he’s doing in this regard. Do you think Klavan’s piece reinforces that ceding? I don’t. Perhaps I found it interesting because of his City Journal audience rather than the actual content…I do that sometimes

      BREAKING: First Uranium One Indictment Unsealed – Maryland Man Indicted on 11 Counts of Bribery and Fraud

      On Friday DOJ officials in the District of Maryland announced Mark Lambert from Mount Airy, Maryland was indicted with 11 counts related to foreign bribery.
      The charges stem from an alleged scheme by Lambert to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX).

      FBI informant William D. Campbell told reporters in November that he has video of briefcases full of money in the Uranium One bribery case.

      Campbell says he is in fear for his life since he was outed by the Sessions Department of Justice to the liberal media.

      Justice.gov reported:

      An indictment against a former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad, was unsealed today for his alleged role in a scheme that involved the bribery of an official at a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation.

      Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Acting U.S. Attorney Stephen M. Schenning of the District of Maryland, Principal Deputy Inspector General April G. Stephenson of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Inspector General (DOE-OIG) and Assistant Director in Charge Andew W. Vale of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. Field Office made the announcement.

      Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged in an 11-count indictment with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.

      morning. This could be big. There’s a lot of concern about antibiotic-resistant illnesses. Look what this 15 yr old kid found in his back yard in Ireland.

      Blackberry antibiotic lands Cork student top BT Young Scientist prize

      His work combined botany, microbiology and analytic chemistry to demonstrate its effectiveness in killing Staphylococcus aureus, a bug that infects humans and is increasingly resistant to antibiotic treatment, especially when it comes in the form of the hospital-acquired infection MRSA. It was also shown to be effective in killing Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a potentially deadly bug, especially for those with cystic fibrosis.

      He extracted anti-microbial agents from aerial parts of plants and their roots using ethanol and then tested their antibiotic effects.

      George Orwell nailed it in his novel, 1984. “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”. I do not know if Klavan was intentional alluding to what Orwell said, or whether the universal truth of Orwell’s statement merely coincided with today’s reality as Klavan observed it.

      Good morning. A little about Dick Durbin, I don’t care if Trump called Haiti, Some African nations, and El Salvador
      “shit holes”. I have been to Haiti and I can assure you that it is a shit hole.
      But Durbin is not a reliable source, he has a high credibility gap. Just for openers Sens Cotton and Perdue
      were in the meeting and they did not hear the comment. In Illinois Durbin has always been a mindless
      lackey for Labor, never deviating and he will say anything.

      Yup, the blaming Trump has already begun. Some doofus on CNN mocks him for being on the golf course when the
      alert went. I guess that Trump should have special skills, and anticipate these things.
      Never mind that Obama slept through Benghazi so that he could do a fund raiser in the morning and Hillary
      was AWOL.

      Tulsi Gabbard was on FNC. She is the least objectionable Demcrat and probably the best looking.
      But even she blamed Trump among others. Trump should already have a deal with Lil Kim according

      And it took 38 minutes to figure out there was no incoming? IIRC, if there had been a missile, it would have taken about 20 mins to hit, so they way they ‘figured it out’ is that – nothing hit.

      ROTFLMAO… I actually have no idea. I don’t even know who its for. Were suppose to make 5 of them, one down, four more to go. My best guess is its going to be some kind of shop table, it will have wheels/casters on it so it can be rolled around. That’s all I know. I have been told nothing about what kind of top it will have, though I suspect probably sheet metal. Not even sure if we will be putting it on.

      Yea, 4 feet by 4 feet table top and by the time the wheels are on it’s by 3 and a half feet tall not the biggest table around. But it is 1/8th square tube so its pretty robust.

      An old Doberman starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he’s lost.

      Wandering about, he notices a lion heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

      The old Doberman thinks, “Oh, oh! I’m in deep shit now!”

      Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat.

      Just as the lion is about to leap, the old Doberman exclaims loudly,

      “Boy, that was one delicious lion! I wonder, if there are any more around here?”

      Hearing this, the young lion halts his attack in mid-stride, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.

      “Whew!,” says the lion, “That was close! That old Doberman nearly had me!”

      Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the lion. So, off he goes.

      The squirrel soon catches up with the lion, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the lion.

      The young lion is furious at being made a fool of and says, “Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what’s going to happen to that conniving canine!”
      Now, the old Doberman sees the lion coming with the squirrel on his back and thinks, “What am I going to do now?,” but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn’t seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old Doberman says……..

      “Where’s that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another lion!”

      Moral of this story…

      Don’t mess with the old dogs… Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery!

      Bull Shit and brilliance only come with age and experience.

      If you don’t send this to 2 ‘old’ friends right away, there will be 2 fewer people laughing in the world.

      Of course, I am in no way insinuating that you are old, just ‘youthfully challenged’.

      You did notice the size of the print, didn’t you?

      he was my voice of college ball growing up. he is forever intertwined with watching games with my dad and grandad.

      A member of Antifa just bragged that he chased James Fields with a rifle in Charlottesville, causing him to flee in a panic moments before the car crash.

      From what the State is saying it was a mistake but a State of Hawaii employee. If that is true what does Trump have to do with it.

      It definitely was done by a state employee, whether accidental or not. The feds have nothing to do with the state Emergency Management Agency’s day-to-day operations.

      Exactly.

      Moby Says CIA Agents Asked Him to Spread Word About Trump, Russia. Wait, Moby?

      Moby’s in the house. And the house is rocking.

      The electronic dance music songster — also known as Voodoo Child, Barracuda, Schaumgummi, Lopez, DJ Cake, Brainstorm, Mindstorm and UHF but who’s real name is Richard Melville Hall — says CIA agents told him how they were “truly concerned” about President Trump’s ties to Russia.

      “They were like, ‘This is ‘The Manchurian Candidate,’ like [Vladimir Putin] has a Russian agent as the president of the United States,’” he said an interview with Lousiville, Kentucky, radio station WFPK-FM, referring to the movie about a murderous government mole.

      Moby cited “active and former CIA agents” and said that “after talking to friends in DC,” he had learned that the Fusion GPS dossier was “100% real” and that the Russian government was “blackmailing” the president.

      Step away from the crack pipe…

      Mitt Romney Privately Confirms Intent To Run For Orrin Hatch’s Utah Senate Seat

      Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has privately confirmed his intention to run for the U.S. Senate seat to be vacated by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, according to a report.

      Romney friend and business leader Kem Gardner told Utah Gov. Gary Herbert he had received a text message from Romney saying, “I’m running,” per a New York Times article published Sunday.

      Romney has not publicly stated whether he will pursue the Senate seat held by Hatch for more than 40 years, but he did change his Twitter account earlier in 2018 to say he lives in Utah, not Massachusetts.

      Hatch announced on Jan. 2 he would not seek re-election at the end of his seventh term in office.

      Flake to denounce Trump media attacks as Stalinist in Senate speech

      WASHINGTON — Sen. Jeff Flake is planning to slam President Donald Trump’s attacks on the press on the Senate floor this week in a speech that will compare the president’s use of the term “enemy of the people” to describe the media to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.

      https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/congress/flake-denounce-trump-media-attacks-stalinist-senate-speech-n837556

      A lot of us have noticed that the media coordinates not just its message but also its terminology. This speech is one flank of an enfilade attack, the other flank is the Dems and its ‘racist’ ammo. Flake’s role is to introduce as acceptable the idea that Trump = Stalin, giving the media permission to use it. I suspect the reason Flake is the Chosen One is because McCain is too ill and won’t be around long enough to keep beating the drum, and Flake doesn’t have to face reelection, this is his last term. This IS coordinated by somebody somewhere

      So pretty much most people are going to ignore what Flake says as irrelevant. We in AZ are kicking him to the curb, so what he says has no impact on us.

      Sorry, I wasn’t clear. It’s not about Flake, it’s about what’s permissible in the so-called ‘national conversation’. Some people call the process ‘normalizing’, so I’ll try again.

      Flake is normalizing the idea that Trump = Stalin, just as Dems are normalizing Trump = racist. Flake is the point man on this because he’ll be around just long enough to keep pounding on it, w/o having to take any re-election consequences.

      He’s not his own man in this. At. All.

      Bobby Rush bashes Trump for racism, Rush is a homeboy , so I am pretty familiar with him.
      He was the Information Minister and co-founder of theBlack Panther Party. They were a bunch of violent
      race haters. If Rush was white he would probably be a KKK member.

      Trump is a blowhaed and imprecise with his speech , but he has never been a racist.

      Antifa Group Proposes “Law Enforcement Incineration Day”

      An Antifa student group at the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) has proposed that “Law Enforcement Appreciation Day” be rebranded as “Law Enforcement Incineration Day.”

      “Instead of #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay how about #LawEnforcementIncinerationDay,” the group Autonomous Student Network (ASN) Austin tweeted on January 9, accompanied by a photo of a policeman engulfed in flames.

      According to Time, the unidentified 41-year-old officer depicted in the photo was patrolling the streets of Paris, France on May 1, 2017—otherwise known as “May Day,” a date associated with violent protests—when he was struck by a Molotov cocktail that inflicted third-degree burns.

      ASN Austin describes itself on its Facebook page as “an organization that seeks to promote student autonomy through direct action tactics.”

      “We are dedicated to the complete abolition of all systems of domination and hierarchy. We stand absolutely against white supremacy, settler colonialism, cisheteropatriarchy, ableism, the state, and capitalism as systems which organize violent and hierarchical relationships between social groups,” the group declares.

      “We see the state as integral to all forms of domination,” the description continues, adding that “we see police as an extension of this and refuse any negotiation with the cops.”

      ASN Austin disavows any specific “vision of what alternatives we want to build,” instead saying that it aims to “provide an outlet for radical student activism” and “radicalize student activism on campus beyond the pathetic spectacle of chants and protests that are so non-disruptive to those in power.”

      The extensive description concludes with a call to “Spread Anarchy, Live Communism!”
