Trump Drops Mask, Goes Full Moonbat in Debate

Remember Cindy Sheehan, the unhinged moonbat who acquired her 15 minutes of fame by yelling seditious rhetoric in the early days of the Iraq War? If you saw the Republican debate last night, you might have been reminded of her by Trump spitting up the same ultra-left B.S. Here’s the old “Bush lied, people died” canard:

Trump’s eyelids match the mauve lettering behind him nicely. As he got increasingly angry at the boo birds, the rest of his complexion approached the same shade as the red background.

Saddam did have weapons of mass destruction; his use of them against Iran and against his own people was thoroughly documented. In the lead-up to the war, he apparently managed to export many of them to Syria, but many remained.

Even if Saddam didn’t have WMDs, to accuse Bush of lying is itself a lie. Everyone believed Saddam had WMDs. There is no reason to think Bush was the sole exception.

True enough, the war was a mistake — but only in hindsight, knowing that Obama would prematurely withdraw our troops and allow Islamic radicals to fill the vacuum.

Note that Trump also blames W for the World Trade Center attack. It isn’t the first time. He has even ventured into 9/11 Truther territory.

Trump is not just a liberal posing as a Republican. He is a moonbat posing as an American.

While Bush 43 was taking the fight to the terrorists and American troops were in harm’s way, the Donald was yelping about impeachment. When the Tea Party reached full steam, he was praising Obama and denouncing America for being racist. Now he’s back to echoing Michael Moore propaganda regarding the Iraq War and 9/11.

Anyone with right-of-center politics who supports Donald Trump has been duped. The guy is a talented salesman. But now the mask is off, so there is no excuse not to acknowledge the mistake.

Senator Ben Sasse Defines Conservatism

When fans of the socialist Bernie Sanders are asked to define socialism, they stutter and drool. When prominent Democrats like Shrillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz are asked what the difference is between a Democrat and a socialist, they are equally clueless. But ask Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) to define conservatism, and you get an eloquent answer:

Chris Matthews Barks That Ted Cruz “Operates Below the Level of Human Life”

Sometimes you can judge a man by who hates him and how much. Donald Trump calls Ted Cruz “nasty,” a “liar,” a “pussy,” “worse than Jeb Bush,” et cetera. Chris Matthews, for whom the concept of a Reagan conservative appealing to voters is literally incomprehensible, has even worse to say:

No thrills up the leg for Tingles this time. Take that as a golden endorsement for Cruz.

Pushback Works Against White Guilt Brainwashing Video

This is the sort of insidious idiocy educrats use to brainwash white kids into hating themselves and other kids into blaming their failures on whitey instead of taking responsibility for themselves:

If Europeans are on top, does it occur to any moonbats to wonder how they got there? Possibly it was by working hard rather than whining and blaming others for their own inadequacies.

Fortunately, pushback works:

A Virginia school district has banned the use of an educational video about racial inequality after some parents complained that its messaging is racially divisive.

The four-minute, animated video — “Structural Discrimination: The Unequal Opportunity Race” — was shown last week to students at an assembly at Glen Allen High School, in Henrico County, as a part of the school’s Black History Month program.

The video contextualizes historic racial disparity in the United States using the metaphor of a race track in which runners face different obstacles depending upon their racial background. It has been shown hundreds of thousands of times at schools and workshops across the country since it was created more than a decade ago, according to the African American Policy Forum, which produced it.

“The video is designed for the general public,” said Luke Harris, co-founder of the African American Policy Forum and an associate professor of political science at Vassar College. “We produced something you could show in elementary and secondary schools or in college studies courses.”

It is probably most effective in elementary schools, where students are too naive to be disgusted and enraged.

But in Glen Allen, about 22 kilometres from Richmond, after the video was played for students, some parents complained, calling it a “white guilt video.”

Henrico County public schools officials initially defended the decision to show it, saying the video was “one component of a thoughtful discussion in which all viewpoints were encouraged.”

All viewpoints. Yeah right.

But after the story began to spread nationally, school officials switched gears, labelling the video “racially divisive” two days later.

It’s a start. But it will take a whole lot more pushback to cure the disease.

Are Electric Cars Really Green?

Pretend for a moment that CO2, rather than being an essential nutrient for plants, is actually a pollutant as liberal ideologues have agreed to believe. Does that mean that electric cars are good for the environment? No it does not:

Now for a more difficult question: why are we forced to subsidize inferior cars?

The Great Antonin Scalia Has Died

The surest voice of reason on the Supreme Court has passed away:

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

Scalia, 79, was a guest at the Cibolo Creek Ranch, a resort in the Big Bend region south of Marfa.

This praise is not the standard hyperbole extolling the recently departed, but the sober truth:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott released a statement Saturday afternoon, calling Scalia a man of God, a patriot and an “unwavering defender of the written Constitution.”

“He was the solid rock who turned away so many attempts to depart from and distort the Constitution,” Abbott said. “We mourn his passing, and we pray that his successor on the Supreme Court will take his place as a champion for the written Constitution and the Rule of Law. …”

Scalia was nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1986 by President Ronald Reagan.

Liberty is hanging by a thread, often prevented from collapse into forthright tyranny by 5-4 votes in the Supreme Court. No one was a more reliable vote against tyranny or a more eloquent champion of liberty than Antonin Scalia.

God help this country if Obama is able to choose Scalia’s replacement. Hillary and Sanders would pick someone just as awful. Also, recall that Trump recently denounced Scalia for opposing Affirmative Action; Trump has suggested that his radically pro-abortion sister would make a good Supreme Court Justice.

More Supreme Court appointments will be made within the next few years. This means that a conservative absolutely has to win in November. It is time for everyone who wants the Constitution and traditional American values preserved to rally behind Ted Cruz before it is too late.

Princeton Professor Imani Perry, Hate-Hoaxing Woman of Privilege

Dashcams ought to be banned. They are an obstacle on the road to social justice:

The dashcam arrest video showing police arrest a Princeton University professor this weekend paints a markedly different picture than the racist ordeal described by the professor, Imani Perry, in a 1,201-word Facebook rant.

Perry, a professor in Princeton’s African American studies department, also tweeted angrily about her arrest, but she appears to have since deleted her entire Twitter account.

People who get caught tweeting lies sometimes do that.

A pair of Princeton, N.J. police officers busted Perry on Saturday morning for going 67 miles per hour in a zone where the posted speed limit is 45 miles per hour.

The officers then proceeded to arrest Perry because of a warrant for an outstanding parking ticket from three years ago. She still owed $130 for that infraction. …

In addition to the Princeton traffic troubles which led to her brief arrest, Perry also has an active Abington Township, Pa. traffic case in which she drove an unregistered automobile, according to Planet Princeton.

Being a Professor of African American Studies who likely owes her lofty position to Affirmative Action, she responded to being held accountable for her irresponsible behavior as you might expect — by belligerently throwing down the race card:

“Now, make no mistake, I do not believe I did anything wrong,” she wrote. “But even if I did, my position holds. The police treated me inappropriately and disproportionately. The fact of my blackness is not incidental to this matter.”

No, certainly not incidental. A person of nonpreferred pigmentation probably would not have been treated with such exaggerated deference, and certainly would not have claimed that being arrested for breaking the law is a matter of race.

Perry, the parking ticket recipient who says she was ultimately able to pay her fine “without hesitation” to secure her release, also compares her fate to “poor Black, Indigenous, and Latino communities” which “experience disproportionate police surveillance, harassment, violence, and punishment.” …

“I can say that what I experienced was far more likely because my skin is a deep brown, my nose is round, and my hair is coily,” Perry also claims.

By barfing up this mendacious and pernicious idiocy on any pretext, morons can acquire degrees and even professorships at Ivy League universities these days, provided they back up their moonbattery with the appropriate skin color.

See for yourself as this woman of privilege is treated with politeness bordering on obsequiousness:

No matter how sweet the police are to law-breakers of color, they will always be demonized.

Please welcome Professor Imani Perry to the Hate Hoax List.

Ted Cruz Standing Up to a Mob

Some politicians specialize in saying whatever an angry crowd wants to hear, as necessary adjusting their position quickly, as when one abruptly jumped from preaching that it is our duty to let in Syrian refugees to proclaiming that no Muslims should be allowed into the country. Others hold to their position even in the face of angry crowds. For example, in 2014 Ted Cruz was the keynote speaker at a Beltway dinner gala for In Defense of Christians. He received boos when he said “Christians have no greater ally than Israel.” Here’s how he handled it:

Things will go better for us when our allies know they have a friend they can count on.

Asylum-Seeking “Refugees” Arrive in Sweden by Private Jet

As the media weeps for the plight of the Islamic colonists, I mean “refugees,” flooding into Europe by the hundreds of thousands, let’s have a look at how some of them are getting there:

A private jet with asylum seekers has landed at Sturup airport outside Malmo, Fria Tider reported.

A Cessna 680 came from Beirut with ten asylum seekers on board. They have now been handed over to the Migration Board and two of them are already granted permanent residency as they are Syrian nationals. The Swedish Migration Board has in fact decided that all Syrians automatically get permanent residency and social security for life.

Arriving by private jet won’t make it any more difficult to collect welfare benefits as they devote themselves to producing lots more Muslims and possibly to terrorism.

Ultra-Left Loon Harry Belafonte Endorses Bernie Sanders

Despite her dogged efforts and appeal to blacks, Shrillary will never outflank Bernie Sanders on the left. The Vermont commie is sewing up the America-hating hebephrenic moonbat vote. He even has the endorsement of schizoid of color Harry Belafonte:

In a video posted on the Vermont senator’s YouTube channel, the entertainer and social activist says Sanders’ candidacy is giving an opportunity for “young people — all people a choice to turn this ship of state called America around and place it on a new course. That’s why I’ve endorsed Bernie Sanders.” …

Belafonte is known to make controversial political statements, including about race.

In 2012, he suggested in an interview with MSNBC host Al Franken that President Barack Obama winning his second term meant that his political opponents should be rounded up and put in prison.

“The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a Third World dictator and put all these guys in jail,” Belafonte said.

Other recipients of Harry Belafonte accolades include Fidel Castro and the Rosenbergs, the communist traitors who were executed for helping Joseph Stalin acquire our nuclear weapons technology.

The welfare state is on course to economically destroy the country in the foreseeable future. Yet Belafonte has proclaimed that anyone who advocates entitlement reform should be thrown in prison. The appeal of Bernie Sanders — who is certain to turn all the welfare dials up to 11 as fast as Richard Cloward or Francis Fox Piven would do — is obvious.

Democrat Pol Says It Is Not Sporting to Use a Semiautomatic Weapon for Self-Defense

In case you didn’t get the memo that Democrat politicians have for some time now been on the side of the bad guys, Pennsylvania congressional candidate Dan Muroff can bring you up to date with a recent diatribe against law-abiding citizens’ fundamental right of self-defense, which includes this gem:

It’s not sporting to use a semi-automatic weapon to go hunting, or frankly, self-defense.

Muroff also raved,

Guns in the street are easier to find than healthy produce. … They unravel the fabric of not just an individual’s future, but with it their family’s future.

Imagine that a mother and her children happen to be alone in the house when a gang of underprivileged persons breaks in to rape and pillage, and thanks to Democrats she has no modern weapon. That might unravel the fabric of a family’s future. But at least it wouldn’t be unsporting.

Downtrend gasps,

WTF!?! It’s not sporting to defend yourself using a semi-automatic weapon against a dangerous criminal? Does he honestly feel like we need to give the scumbags a sporting chance when they are trying to rape and murder? I guess so. Maybe he thinks we should all have muzzle-loading black powder muskets just to give the bad guys a reasonable chance of succeeding in their evil deeds. …

Muroff’s misunderstanding of the 2nd Amendment shines through. There is nothing in the Constitution that ties gun ownership to hunting or even self-defense. We simply have the right to own guns and liberal douchebags like him don’t have a right to mess with that.

That is because when push comes to shove, the right to own guns is not prominently featured in the Constitution to defend us from rapists and murderers, but from people like Dan Muroff.

The Welfare State Has Doomed Us to Ever Increasing Debt

The federal government is taking in more money than ever. But it will never be enough. The CBO estimates that the national debt will reach $30 trillion in 10 years, despite ever higher revenues.

The reason for the continuing ocean of Federal red ink is the fact that while government revenues are projected to be around 49.5 percent higher in fiscal year 2026 ($5,035 trillion) than in fiscal year 2016 ($3.376 trillion), government spending will be over 63 percent more in fiscal year 2016 ($6,401 trillion) than in fiscal year 2016 ($3,919 trillion).

At some point the entire economy will collapse beneath the weight of debt. We are in this dire situation because of the welfare state.

Summing over all of these and related mandatory entitlement spending programs, in 1966 the redistributive welfare state absorbed 4.5 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product; in 2016 this will be 13.3 percent of GDP, and 15 percent of GDP in 2026. Or a 317 percent increase over the fifty years between 1966 and 2016, and an additional 13 percent increase between 2016 and 2026.

Due to all of the deficit spending to finance this redistributive largess over what the government collects in tax revenues to fund it, interest on the Federal debt will increase from 1. 4 percent of GDP in 2016 to 3.0 percent of GDP in 2026, or more than a 100 percent increase in the interest cost on the national debt over the next ten years as a percentage of GDP.

Welfare state spending plus mandatory interest payments on the Federal debt now absorbs around 60 percent of everything Uncle Sam spends.

That percentage will only continue to rise until it can no longer be sustained.

Ideology matters. The infection of progressivism is bankrupting the wealthiest nation in the history of the world.

For more than a century, now, the older American political tradition of classical liberalism, with its belief in individual liberty, economic freedom and constitutionally limited government, has been slowly but surely eroded by the “progressive” ideal of political, social and economic collectivism.

Working harder to pay off the debt is futile. The more people are paid not to work, the fewer are left to pull a heavier cart. No matter how hard we labor, our standard of living will continue to decline.

The real dilemma is not whether this or that government program can be cut or reduced in terms of how fast it is growing at present and future taxpayers’ expense. The real challenge is to reverse the political and cultural trends toward more and growing fiscal redistributive socialism.

This will require a strong and articulate revival of a culture and a politics of individualism. It is, ultimately, a battle of ideas, not budgetary line items.

Our only hope is a turn in the tide of the ideological battle. This will happen when Americans once again understand that no one but you has a right to the money you earn.

Under ObamaCare, Doctors Can Be Sued for Acknowledging Only Two Genders

The male–female binary is one of the most basic principles of biology. However, it runs contrary to current liberal ideology, so acknowledging its existence is a thought crime that can get medical professionals sued:

The United States’ Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recently put forth a controversial proposal that may make doctors vulnerable to lawsuits if they recognise only two genders…

The proposed new rule, which falls under U.S. President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, prohibits medical practitioners from discriminating against transgender individuals.

According to the New Boston Post, the new proposal defines “sex stereotypes” in part as “expectations that gender can only be constructed within two distinct opposite and disconnected forms (masculinity and femininity), and that gender cannot be constructed outside of this gender construct (individuals who identify as neither, both, or as a combination of male and female genders).”

Those who refuse to submit to this grotesque ideology are guilty of “discrimination” and therefore eligible for legalized looting through the courts.

Liberalism isn’t just depravity. It is totalitarian depravity imposed on every aspect of existence by the full force of the ever-present all-powerful State.
