Good Thing She Didn’t Listen

Progressives have had great success in balkanizing us by race/gender/etc. But the freedoms they aspire to take from us apply equally to everyone, and equally benefit everyone willing to live and let live. Some people get it:

Is Hillary Guilty?

Of course she is — at the felony level. That is beyond dispute, as James Comey made clear and Bill Whittle documents:

What is in dispute is whether this is still the sort of country in which prominent members of the ruling class are expected to obey the law. Looks like it isn’t.

The Onion Reveals Highly Effective al Qaeda Terror Plot

At this point, we may as well get our news straight from The Onion:

Putting the nation on alert against what it has described as a “highly credible terrorist threat,” the FBI announced today that it has uncovered a plot by members of al-Qaeda to sit back and enjoy themselves while the United States collapses of its own accord.

Multiple intelligence agencies confirmed that the militant Islamist organization and its numerous affiliates intend to carry out a massive, coordinated plan to stand aside and watch America’s increasingly rapid decline, with terrorist operatives across the globe reportedly mobilizing to take it easy, relax, and savor the spectacle as it unfolds. …

According to statements made by top-level informants and corroborated by leading Western terrorism experts, if seen through to its conclusion, al-Qaeda’s current plot could wreak far more damage than the events of 9/11.

If I thought al Qaeda understood the implications of the choice American voters face in November, I would believe every word of this report. As Napoleon is said to have said, “Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.”

Moonbats Want Us to Pee in the Shower

First they “nudge.” Then they demand. Then they impose by force of law. With peeing in the shower, we are still at the nudge stage:

According to Mic.com, peeing in the shower once a day can save you from buying a roll of toilet paper every 50 days.

And fascia specialist Lauren Roxburgh recommends women squat and pee in the shower to engage pelvic floor muscles, which can actually lead to better sex.

Now to the real reason they want us to pee in the shower:

In 2014, Debs Torr and Chris Dobson, students at the University of East Anglia in Norwich calculated that if all 15,000 students at their school peed in the shower once a day the school would “save enough water to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool 26 times,” the BBC reported.

Incidentally, the University of East Anglia is home of ClimateGate, the scandal involving leaked emails that proved climate scientists have been lying to us to promote the global warming hoax.

The ultimate driver behind enviromoonbattery is Big Government:

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency the standard toilet uses 1.6 gallons (6.05 litres) per flush, while older models can use as much as 7 gallons (26.49 litres) per flush. Considering the average person uses the toilet six to eight times a day, that’s a lot of wasted water.

Progressives appear to believe that once water goes down the drain, it disappears forever, as if all drains lead to a giant pipe that pours it into outer space.

Once they figure out how to deal with solid waste after toilets have been banned, peeing in the shower will be mandatory.

France’s Socialist President Spends $10,000 per Month on Barber

Looks like the French are taking a haircut regarding the return on their massive investment in Big Government:

The investigative and satirical newspaper Le Canard Enchaîné reported [last week] that President François Hollande’s personal hairdresser has been paid 9,895 euros — over $10,000 — per month since Mr. Hollande was elected in 2012…

Hollande is a Socialist. Socialists believe that if you produce more wealth than Big Government thinks you need, the excess should be confiscated in the name of those who produce less, and used to finance their own extravagant lifestyle. Even in the failing state of Venezuela, the socialist ruling class still lives high on the hog.

Here’s what French taxpayers get for $10,000/month:

For that kind of money, Hollande ought to look a little more stylish. Maybe like this

British Police Tackle Misogyny as a Hate Crime

What exactly is a hate crime? Whatever the moonbats in charge say it is. In some jurisdictions, misogyny is now regarded as a hate crime:

The police force in Nottinghamshire, East Midlands, will become the first in the U.K. to record misogyny as a hate crime in an effort to tackle the increasing number of incidents in the county.

Misogynist hate crime is defined by the force as: “Incidents against women that are motivated by an attitude of a man towards a woman and includes behaviour targeted towards a woman by men simply because they are a woman.”

The new category will include everything from verbal comments and wolf whistling to unwanted physical approaches. The use of mobile devices to send uninvited messages or take photographs without consent will also warrant police attention.

Hate crimes may be so subtle that you would have no idea you had committed them until you had been apprehended by the authorities. Some feminists consider it sexist to hold a door open for a woman. Is chivalry a hate crime? Try it in Nottinghamshire and find out.

“What women face, often on a daily basis, is absolutely unacceptable and can be extremely distressing,” said Chief Constable Sue Fish. “Nottinghamshire Police is committed to taking misogynistic hate crime seriously and encourages anyone who is affected by it to contact us without hesitation.”

What makes the concept of “hate crime” (i.e., thought crime) so useful is that it potentially elevates any manifestation of political incorrectness into a matter for the police.

Moonbat Tech: Hyundai’s E4U

Even after Big Government has rid the world of fossil fuels as promised, people will have transportation needs. Cars as we know them will not be an option, because even overpriced, underpowered electric cars require more energy than can be affordably generated using the conspicuously inefficient means that meet with liberal approval. Fortunately, Hyundai has developed a solution — the E4U:

Hyundai’s egg-shaped vehicle sets itself apart by sitting atop a horizontally-spinning semisphere that is used for propulsion instead of wheels. The driver stands on a small platform and directs the vehicle by tilting it so that different sides of the semisphere contact the ground. Tech-On says this is similar to the way a helicopter works, with two rear wheels providing stability and friction to act like a helicopter’s tail rotor.

Other details are scant, but another “interesting” feature is the that the top of the vehicle can be removed and worn by the driver as an eye-catching helmet. This is dominated by a large clear visor that seems more fitting for higher speeds than the walking pace the concept is currently capable of.

Hyundai is based in South Korea, but this concept is so absurd that it would be amazing if the US government has had no role in funding it.

E4U
On the level, I swear.

Venezuela Update: Life Under Progressive Government Grown Out of Control

Given that both of our presumptive presidential candidates are progressives certain to accelerate our degeneration into socialism, Venezuela appears to be our future. Let’s have a look at what the future has in store for us.

The future of shopping:

More than 100,000 Venezuelans, some of whom drove through the night in caravans, crossed into Colombia over the weekend to hunt for food and medicine that are in short supply at home.

It was the second weekend in a row that Venezuela’s socialist government opened the long-closed border with Colombia, and by 6 a.m. Sunday, a line of would-be shoppers snaked through the entire town of San Antonio del Tachira. Some had traveled in chartered buses from cities 10 hours away.

Maybe we had better hope Trump doesn’t build that wall after all.

Socialism works fine for the ruling class, and sometimes benefits the poor in the short term. For the middle class, it stinks:

Tebie Gonzalez and Ramiro Ramirez still have their sleek apartment, a fridge covered with souvenir magnets from vacations abroad, and closets full of name brand clothes. But they feel hunger drawing near.

So when the Venezuelan government opened the long-closed border with Colombia this weekend, the couple decided to drain what remained of the savings they put away before the country spun into economic crisis and stock up on food. They left their two young sons with relatives and joined more than 100,000 other Venezuelans trudging across what Colombian officials are calling a “humanitarian corridor” to buy as many basic goods as possible.

“This is money we had been saving for an emergency, and this is an emergency,” Ramirez said. “It’s scary to spend it, but we’re finding less food each day and we need to prepare for what’s coming.”

Gonzalez, 36, earns several times the minimum wage with her job as a sales manager for a chain of furniture stores in the western mountain town of San Cristobal. But lately, her salary is no match for Venezuela’s 700 percent inflation. Ramirez’s auto parts shop went bust after President Nicolas Maduro closed the border with Colombia a year ago, citing uncontrolled smuggling, and cut off the region’s best avenue for imported goods.

Their shopping adventure was degrading and disappointing, but at least they managed to acquire some pasta and cooking oil.

Gonzalez was crying behind her oversized aviator glasses.

“I thought the crossing would be easier. It made me feel so humiliated, like I was an animal; a refugee,” she said.

That is the condition of any people at the complete mercy of overgrown government.

What was that about 700% inflation? Soon that will seem like a happy memory:

Consumer-price inflation is forecast to hit 480% this year and top 1,640% in 2017, according to the International Monetary Fund.

A shortage of medical supplies means infants and other sick patients are dying of treatable illnesses. Soldiers guard empty grocery store shelves. Inflation is so bad, the government has had to order bolivars by the planeload.

Government does not create wealth. It confiscates it. When there is no more to confiscate, it prints money. Money is not really wealth, as people will find out soon when big-spending progs like Hillary/Trump deepen the $19 trillion hole Obama has dug us into, and they inevitably try to monetize their way out of it.

BronyCon

brony
A Brony.

Like a strange rash that you thought would go away but keeps getting worse, the Brony phenomenon persists. An approving WaPo brings us up to date in light of a Brony gathering in Baltimore:

BronyCon, which attracted more than 7,600 attendees this year, is the ultimate safe space: When you’re in a rainbow wonderland of fellow travelers wearing unicorn horns and technicolor manes, randomly hollering catchphrases like “Fun! Fun! Fun!” and singing fan-written songs with titles like “Mane Squeeze,” you can stop worrying about what’s normal and what’s weird or where you fit in.

Bronyism is based on a kiddie show called “My Little Pony,” which is based on an earlier cartoon that in turn was based on a Hasbro toy.

It was launched by Lauren Faust, an animator with solid feminist­hipster credentials, who had grown up loving the original but clearly wanted to propel it into the new century.

If Bronyism is an indication of the century before us, it is no wonder that a giant meteor strike is doing so well in the polls.

For reasons incomprehensible to the uninitiated, Bronyism appeals to grown men. But not only men. It also appeals to some women and to men who are not men because the media says they are women:

[T]he fratty overtones of the “bro” prefix are misleading. Roughly 20 percent of BronyCon attendees identify as women — they’re often called “Pegasisters.” The founder of BronyCon is a trans woman, Jessica Blank, who goes by “Purple Tinker” in these circles; the convention offered all-gender restrooms.

Want to see a picture of “Jessica”? Here’s one anyway:

Only one thing could be even more preposterous than either a Brony or a hipster. I’ll leave you with a Brony hipster:

Waiting for Some Word From Feminists on This

A little more of that cultural enrichment Europeans have been importing:

A woman and her three daughters have been stabbed in a French resort for being ‘scantily dressed’.

An eight-year-old girl was left fighting for her life after the attack in the Garde-Colombe in the Hautes-Alpes region of Southern France.

The man is believed to have attacked the three girls outside the family’s apartment before entering the building and attacking the mother.

Jean-Marc Duprat, a deputy mayor for the town of Laragne-Monteglin in the Hautes-Alpes region said the suspect, who is not related to them, was upset they were wearing shorts and T-shirts.

Once Europeans were free to wear what they pleased. That is no longer the case. But men still can.

The girls are believed to be aged eight, 12 and 14 while their mother is 46.

The 8-year-old received a punctured lung during this adventure in multiculturalism.

Amaury Navarranne from the regional council said: ‘The religious motive of the attack is in no doubt.’

I wonder what the religion of the attacker could have been. Since we are told that all faiths are equivalent, there is really no way to guess.

The attacker is described as a 37-year-old of Moroccan descent.

Islamic Torture at Bataclan

At last we are learning — despite efforts by French authorities to suppress the information — just what went on inside the Bataclan when Muslims laid siege to the Paris club last November 13. This is what those in charge have been importing from the Middle East:

A French government committee has heard testimony, suppressed by the French government at the time and not published online until [last] week, that the killers in the Bataclan appear to have tortured their victims on the second floor of the club.

The chief police witness in Parliament testified that on the night of the attacks, an investigating officer, tears streaming down his face, rushed out of the Bataclan and vomited in front of him just after seeing the disfigured bodies. …

According to this testimony, Wahhabist killers reportedly gouged out eyes, castrated victims, and shoved their testicles in their mouths. They may also have disemboweled some poor souls. Women were reportedly stabbed in the genitals – and the torture was, victims told police, filmed for Daesh or Islamic State propaganda. For that reason, medics did not release the bodies of torture victims to the families, investigators said.

Some of the victims were decapitated.

If the jihadists find time for all this during a terror attack, imagine what must be going on in territory controlled by the Islamic State. For details, pick up a historical account of what their role model Mohammad did to his victims.

Incidentally, it isn’t just the French who have been trying to suppress knowledge of the effects of Islamic infiltration into Europe:

The news follows reports that German police sat on the huge number of sexual assaults committed by Islamist migrants in Cologne, which a secret report estimated at thousands, not hundreds.

The moral equivalence so popular among liberals cannot be applied to Islam. Those who defend its expansion defend Bataclan, Beslan, and the countless other atrocities inflicted in the name of this cult for the sake of pure evil.

Brownshirt Activity at the Republican Convention

Former Republican Senator Gordon Humphrey calls the Trumpsters who have been steamrolling resistance at the Republican National Convention “brownshirts”:

Think he is exaggerating? Kera Birkeland doesn’t:

Utah delegate Kera Birkeland was on the floor during the Rules vote as one of the delegates calling for a roll call vote.

Birkeland reportedly went to the women’s restroom and when she emerged from a stall, a group of Trump supporters surrounded her and threatened to kill her, urging her to leave the party and the state.

Given the fascistic tenor of Trumpism from the beginning, her story rings true.

Obama’s radicalization of the Democrat Party has caused American politics to veer in a very ugly direction. Whichever authoritarian progressive prevails in November, the road ahead disappears into darkness.

Case Western Reserve University Protects Snowflakes From the Police

The Republican National Convention may seem like nothing but a Dumpster fire to conservatives, but to the snowflakes at Case Western Reserve University, it could represent a vacation:

Case Western Reserve University, under fire by students and faculty for housing police on campus during the Republican National Convention, has decided to hold no classes, summer camps or other activities on campus from July 18-21. …

President Barbara Snyder held two forums on campus July 6 after students and faculty voiced concerns over housing the police.

Students wanted the university to require the officers to store their weapons off campus, for the officers to stay out of university-owned buildings that aren’t their assigned residence halls, and for the university to provide alternative housing for students uncomfortable with the increased police presence.

In the alternate reality inhabited by moonbats and reinforced relentlessly by the government, the media, and educrats, police are villains apt to murder members of privileged “victim” groups out of sheer malice.

Snyder sent out a cringing campus-wide email blast, in which she apologized for agreeing to house the police, and for having urged students not to stereotype police as violent and bigoted.

The announced plan is for classes to be held off campus if at all, faculty to avoid their offices, the library to be closed, and students who live on campus to receive help finding a place to stay where they can be safe from the marauding police.

This idiocy is in response to a petition entitled “Student Safety During Riot Police Occupation of Case Western Reserve University,” which presents a long list of arrogant and condescending demands. So far it has been signed by 434 moonbats, including one who whimpers,

shannon-groll

Maybe moonbats would feel safer if Black Lives Matter types like Micah Xavier Johnson and Gavin Eugene Long provide security on campus from now on. Never mind, those two are dead — struck down in the prime of life by the brutal police!
