Sabo Defends #NeverTrump With Latest Poster

There have been many sellouts, but information warfare streetfighter Sabo is not one of them. His latest production is a parody boxing promo poster that pits principled #NeverTrump leader Ben Shapiro against flamboyantly homosexual alt-right stormtrumper Milo Yiannopoulos of Breitbart.

“Anyone who knows anything about me knows I’ve been fighting the establishment for years, and the thought that I’m somehow on their side because I don’t support a New York, Democrat, game show host is ridiculous,” Sabo told The Daily Wire. “My focus has been to teach Republicans how to fight like Democrats, not to have a nominee who fights like a Democrat who actually is one! Trumpkins need to realize that there are very real Republicans who demand change just as much as they do, but we need a constitutionalist at the helm to do it.”

His poster sums up the ongoing civil war nicely:

ABC’s Sunny Hostin: Apart From Benghazi, What Makes Shrillary So Untrustworthy?

Year after year, ABC’s The View continues to limp onward. Viewers must come for the laughs. You can’t say the cohostesses don’t have a sense of humor:

On Friday’s The View on ABC, during a discussion of trust issues surrounding presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, co-host Sunny Hostin cluelessly wondered “what makes Hillary so untrustworthy” as co-host Paula Faris asserted that both candidates are “untrustworthy.”

Hostin then demanded to know, “Why is she untrustworthy? How many lies has she told?” and, when co-host and FNC contributor Jedediah Bila began recalling Benghazi, Hostin deflected by demanding to know what else other than Benghazi.

On the off chance that Sunny is on the level, and Benghazi isn’t enough for her, maybe this video of Shrillary telling lies for 13 minutes straight will help:

Security Guard Arrested for Escorting Male Pervert Out of Women’s Bathroom

The bathroom wars continue to escalate. Sane people are getting arrested for attempting to defend civilized norms:

A female security guard has been arrested and faces being charged with a potential hate crime for removing a biological male from a women’s restroom in the nation’s capital.

The unnamed guard asked the transgender man to leave a women’s bathroom in a Giant store near the intersection of H and Third St. NE in Washington, D.C., around noon on Monday.

When the 32-year-old man, who goes by the name Ebony Belcher, refused to leave, the guard escorted him out of the store.

Belcher did not go quietly.

The altercation allegedly turned physical, and the two were “getting into it and throwing stuff,” eyewitness Tony Pixley told WJLA-TV. “They went back and forth.”

After being expelled, Belcher contacted a “longtime transgender activist,” according to local NBC-4, a man who identifies as a female and goes by the name Earline Budd. Budd told Belcher to call the police.

The female guard was arrested for allegedly committing assault. The police report lists it as a potential hate crime, and the city’s office of LGBT affairs is watching the case, NBC-4 reports.

The larger controversy is absurd, yet it is a hill worth dying on. Aggressively promoting when not actually imposing degeneracy and perversion is only a means toward an end. When that end has been achieved, American society will implode. Cultural Marxism has never been more obviously corrosive.

The False Choice

Again and again the Stormtrumpers whack you over the head with the same rhetorical club: “If you don’t vote for Trump you are voting for Hillary.” This is nonsense. As RedState notes,

That is like saying either buy the Chevrolet or you’re buying a Dodge.

It is as if they believe that by hijacking a party, they automatically acquire the right to demand obedience from those who supported that party back when it stood for the diametric opposite of Trumpism.

Conservatives believe in limited government, individual liberty/responsibility, property rights, free trade, moral decency, a strong international presence, and preservation of the Constitution — none of which would escape being seriously undermined by Trump. If you value these principles, no one can make you vote against them.

There are other options. If big spending, authoritarian moonbat Gary Johnson takes the Libertarian Party out of play, vote for the Constitution Party, or don’t vote at all. Writing in Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho would be more constructive than voting for either of the progressive statist candidates.

Lucy Vallender: Transgender Gay Muslim Woman

Actually Lucy Vallender isn’t really a woman. He isn’t really Muslim either, or else he would have thrown himself off a roof for being homosexual:

Vallender, formerly known as Laurens before “he” [or should that be “she”?] became true to “herself,” is a former British soldier who had a sex operation in 2010 to switch out his male parts for female parts. Vallender would later convert to Islam, saying it’s a “peaceful” religion and take things even further by marrying a Muslim man the ex-soldier met on an online dating site.

Now all he has to do is pretend he’s black like Shaun King to achieve the ultimate moonbat trifecta. Then he can take up sports and be guaranteed an ESPY courage award from ESPN.

Ad Campaign Demands We Believe That Men Have Periods

Since according to liberal ideology there is no distinction between men and women, it stands to reason that men should have periods. Huffington Post confirms it:

Realistic portrayals of what periods are actually like for cisgender women are hard to come by in commercials; non-existent, for those in the transgender community.

It’s why Thinx, the New York-based company behind “period-proof underwear,” is ushering in another menstrual innovation: transgender people in advertising.

Featuring model Sawyer DeVuyst, Thinx’s gender-inclusive ad campaign has taken over New York’s Union Square subway station with images of DeVuyst in the brand’s black underwear, posing effortlessly in handstands and levitating off the ground.

DeVuyst, who is a trans man, had previously inspired Thinx’s “people with periods” project, which came with the launch of their “boyshorts” underwear.

By “trans man,” they mean that DeVuyst is a woman who has been chemically and surgically transfigured into a grotesque parody of a man. Real men obviously don’t have periods, and still won’t have them even if cultural Marxist lunacy reaches the point that we are imprisoned for saying they don’t.

As Thinx’s CEO, Miki Agrawal, is committed to socially-conscious business, she told Bustle that transgender inclusion in her company’s advertising and product line was important.

“We thought it was high-time that people see a menstruating trans man 10-feet-tall in the subway,” said Agrawal…

It sure is nice not to live in New York City anymore. Unfortunately, it is getting hard to avoid NYC values and levels of moonbattery no matter where you live.

Trump and the 2008 Housing Market Crash

Many lives were upended by the housing market crash in 2008 — my own included. But at least one person was actually hoping for a crash:

Two years before the housing market collapsed in 2008 and millions of Americans lost their homes, Donald Trump said he was hoping for a crash.

“I sort of hope that happens because then people like me would go in and buy,” Trump said in a 2006 audiobook from Trump University, answering a question about “gloomy predictions that the real estate market is heading for a spectacular crash.”

The U.S. housing bubble burst two years later, triggering the stock market crash of 2008 that plunged the U.S. economy into a deep recession, leaving millions of Americans unemployed.

Despite his wishes, Trump did not see the crash coming:

“I’m not a believer that the interest market — that the real estate market is going to take a big hit,” Trump said in the same interview.

That same year, he launched Trump Mortgage:

“I think it’s a great time to start a mortgage company,” Trump told a CNBC interviewer in April 2006, adding that “the real estate market is going to be very strong for a long time to come.”

By then, others knew better. But Trump pooh-poohed the “so-called housing bubble.”

Trump Mortgage largely targeted those with poor credit history, peddling the now-infamous subprime mortgages.

Like a disturbing number of Trump’s business ventures, Trump Mortgage was — to use his own favored term — a disaster. It went under in 2007, leaving bills unpaid.

Yet his supposed business acumen is supposed to make up for his having no clue how the government works, other than how to pay bribes.

Transsexual Push Leads to Coerced Speech

The Newspeak dictionary isn’t just a suggestion. It is backed up by force of law in the moonbat dystopia of New York City:

The Gotham mayor’s Commission on Human Rights says entities that fail to address customers by their preferred gender pronouns and titles are in violation of the law and could be subject to penalties of up to $250,000.

The commission issued a “legal enforcement guidance” for the New York City Human Rights Law, which now “requires employers and converted entities to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification.”

The guidance, issued in December as part of a broader interpretation of the human rights law, notes that some people prefer pronouns that don’t have masculine or feminine forms, including “they/them/theirs or ze/hir.” The former are plurals being drafted for use in the singular, while the latter are among several alternative pronoun systems developed by academics and/or LGBT communities.

What do you have to do to avoid being crushed by a financially ruinous fine?

The guide says businesses can avoid penalties “by creating a policy of asking everyone what their preferred gender pronoun is so that no individual is singled out for such questions and by updating their system to allow all individuals to self-identify their names and genders. They should not limit the options for identification to male and female only.”

Our liberal rulers are insane.

Eugene Volokh comments on the implications:

So people can basically force us — on pain of massive legal liability — to say what they want us to say, whether or not we want to endorse the political message associated with that term, and whether or not we think it’s a lie.

We have to use “ze,” a made-up word that carries an obvious political connotation (endorsement of the “non-binary” view of gender). We have to call people “him” and “her” even if we believe that people’s genders are determined by their biological sex and not by their self-perceptions — perceptions that, by the way, can rapidly change, for those who are “gender-fluid” — and that using terms tied to self-perception is basically a lie.

This lunatic tyranny does not apply only to business owners:

What’s more, according to the City, “refusal to use a transgender employee’s preferred name, pronoun, or title may constitute unlawful gender-based harassment.” The label “harassment” is important here because harassment law requires employers and businesses to prevent harassment by co-workers and patrons and not just by themselves or their own employees; this is particularly well established for harassment by co-workers, but it has also been accepted for harassment by fellow patrons. So an employer or business that learns that its employees or patrons are “refus[ing] to use a transgender employee’s preferred” pronoun or title would have to threaten to fire or eject such people unless they comply with the City’s demands.

The madness could get complicated…

But of course “ze” and “Ms./Mrs.” are just examples. We have to use the person’s “preferred … pronoun and title,” whatever those preferences might be. Some people could say they prefer “glugga” just as well as saying “ze”; the whole point is that people are supposed to be free to define their own gender, and their own pronouns and titles. Seems improbable that some people would come up with new terms like that? Well, 10 or 20 years ago it would have seemed pretty improbable that today New Yorkers would be required to call some people “ze.” Check out this list, which already includes “zie,” “sie” (not the German version), “ey,” “ve,” “tey,” “e,” “(f)ae,” “per” and “xe.” Why wouldn’t some creative folks decide they want to add still more?

It won’t remain limited to the NYC lunatic asylum for long:

The New York officials are arguing that this is just what the New York gender identity discrimination ban requires, and indeed it is part of the standard ideology expressed by many transgender rights activists; the same logic would be easily applicable by jurisdictions that have gender identity discrimination bans, or will have such bans; the federal government is taking the view that existing federal bans on sex discrimination also in effect ban gender identity discrimination, and the New York analysis would equally apply to that view; and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has already taken the view that it is illegal under federal law to persistently call employees by pronouns that correspond to their anatomical sex but not their gender identity, though it has not yet had occasion to opine about “ze.”

Forcing people to say they regard men as women is the exact corollary of Winston Smith being coerced to believe that 2 + 2 = 5 in George Orwell’s 1984. The government’s motivation is identical.

This is totalitarianism by any reasonable definition. We should have started resisting the militant LGBT agenda long ago. Politicized degeneracy is being used as a weapon against not only our liberty but our very sanity.

Trump: Who the Hell Cares if There’s a Trade War?

Trump’s radical tariff proposals — reminiscent of the Smoot–Hawley Tariff Act that caused so much economic hardship during the Depression Era — will inevitably result in a trade war with China, and are predicted to cause a global recession. But to quote the Donald, who the hell cares?

Donald Trump responded on Thursday to conservatives critical of his proposal to impose a tariff on imported goods, characterizing them as “dummies” at a New Jersey fundraiser for Gov. Chris Christie.

“These dummies say, ‘Oh, that’s a trade war.’ Trade war? We’re losing $500 billion in trade with China. Who the hell cares if there’s a trade war?” Trump rhetorically asked the audience.

He’s got a point. Although it would likely throw millions of Americans out of work, considering that the economy is already teetering on the brink, it wouldn’t prevent Trump from indulging in the highlife at Mar-a-Lago — or at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. That’s why oligarchical collectivism has such lasting appeal. No matter how bad it makes life for normal people, members of the oligarchy live extravagantly, even in places like North Korea.

“A lot of you don’t know the world of economics,” Trump later said. “And you shouldn’t even bother. Just do me a favor. Leave it to me. Just go enjoy your life.”

Trump is getting blatant in making the classic fascist appeal. Don’t try to think. Just turn everything over to a strongman who will make everything right, so long as his power is unchecked.

Portland Public Schools Ban Material That Could Undermine Global Warming Hoax

It isn’t enough to incessantly ram global warming propaganda down children’s throats instead of teaching them science. Any information that undermines leftist climate ideology must be banned:

In a move spearheaded by environmentalists, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools. …

The resolution passed Tuesday evening calls for the school district to get rid of textbooks or other materials that cast doubt on whether climate change is occurring and that the activity of human beings is responsible. The resolution also directs the superintendent and staff to develop an implementation plan for “curriculum and educational opportunities that address climate change and climate justice in all Portland Public Schools.”

“Climate justice” refers to the explicit use of the global warming hoax to justify coercive wealth redistribution.

Bill Bigelow, a former PPS teacher and current curriculum editor of Rethinking Schools, a magazine devoted to education issues, worked with 350PDX and other environmental groups to present the resolution. …

In board testimony, Bigelow said PPS’ science textbooks are littered with words like might, may and could when talking about climate change.

Such words must be abolished. Uncertainty can no longer be allowed in science. Once it was about asking questions, but now that leftist ideologues have all the answers, it is the role of science to support these answers, distorting objective reality as necessary.

Trump Loses a Delegate

Looks like there will be one less delegate for the Donald at the convention in Cleveland. Losing him must be particularly painful for Trump, because Caleb Andrew Bailey doesn’t seem to be the type to make a heroic stand by voting his conscience:

In a press release on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said that ATF agents began investigating 30-year-old Caleb Andrew Bailey after postal inspectors discovered a package with .50 caliber cartridges with M48A1 incendiary projectiles and other ammunition with explosive projectiles.

On May 5, law enforcement executed a search warrant “at adjoining properties associated with Bailey, including his residence, and seized a machine gun,” according to the statement.

Court documents allege that Bailey also used a minor to produce child pornography, and that child pornography was found in his possession.

Bailey faces over 50 years in prison if found guilty of all charges.

The Maryland Board of Election currently lists Bailey as a delegate for Donald Trump.

No worries, Trumpsters. Thanks to the divided field that hamstrung the conservative candidates during the primaries, there are plenty more delegates where Bailey came from.
