Trump Campaign Emails Battle Plan to Enemy Camp

From the headquarters of our potential next Commander in Chief:

Trump only hires the very best people. Apparently, Trump decided that he wanted to attack Hillary Clinton on the Whitewater scandal. You know, the same scandal that failed to take down the Clinton in the 90’s? That one. The only problem is that neither he nor his campaign really know[s] anything about the scandal so they asked the RNC to research it for them.

How do we know all this? Well, because Trump campaign spokesman Hope Hicks meant to email Republican consultant Michael Caputo, who is a Trump advisor, and instead emailed Politico reporter Marc Caputo [no relation.]

Once in office, Trump will probably email secret counterterror strategy to Al Jazeera, whose operatives will hopefully be too paralyzed with laughter at the Three Stooges level of incompetence to make use of the information.

Our next Commander in Chief?

Exam Question Assumes We Live Under Socialism

Never mind wrong answers. When it comes to exams these days, the questions are wrong:

The role of government is to redistribute wealth, according to a course at the Milwaukee School of Engineering.

A test, administered on April 29 in Professor John Traxler’s Healthcare Economics class, told students that “[o]ne of the main functions of government is income redistribution,” then asked them to explain what the statement meant. The correct answer was C: “Taxing the wealthy and giving it to those in poverty.”

Josh Fisher, a student in the class, told Campus Reform … that he was reluctant to challenge his professor on the matter, saying, “I didn’t want to risk […] affecting my grade. He pushes his agenda pretty hard.”

It is the role of government to redistribute wealth only under oligarchical collectivist tyranny. Under the form of government established by the Founding Fathers, one of the few essential roles of government is the diametric opposite: the protection of property rights.

Assistant Professor John Traxler flunks his own exam.

Obama Puts Down America in Communist Vietnam

At least 58,220 Americans died attempting to defend Vietnam from the communists who reduced it to a miserable slave state. Yesterday Obama was in that slave state doing what he does best — denouncing America:

“No nation is perfect,” he said at the National Convention Center in Hanoi. “Two centuries on, the United States is still trying to striving to live up to our founding ideals.”

“We still deal with our shortcomings – too much money in politics, and rising economic inequality,” Obama continued. “Racial bias in our criminal justice system. Women still not being paid as much as men doing the same job.”

The Vietnamese probably have no idea what to make of these silly left-wing talking points. The more they know about America, the more confused they are likely to be.

Too much money in politics? Obama is literally the last person to talk. In 2012, he outspent Romney in the most expensive presidential campaign in history.

Economic inequality? That’s what inevitably results when the government doesn’t force everyone to be poor, like in Vietnam.

Racial bias in our criminal justice system? For years the criminal justice system has been run by black power radical Eric Holder and his ideologically comparable successor Loretta Lynch.

Women not paid as much for the same work? Nonsense. The free market would not allow it.

Meanwhile, even the moonbats running Obama’s State Department understand who he was denouncing America to:

According to the State Department’s latest human rights report, Vietnam is “an authoritarian state ruled by a single party.”

During the period covered in the report, 2014, the department recorded instances of “arbitrary and unlawful deprivation of life; police attacks and corporal punishment; arbitrary arrest and detention for political activities; continued police mistreatment of suspects during arrest and detention, including the use of lethal force and austere prison conditions; and denial of the right to a fair and expeditious trial.”

The Vietnamese aren’t worried about fantasy injustices. They know what it’s like to live in the opposite of America.

Vietnam’s boat people were not escaping economic inequality but its opposite.

For Utopia to Be Achieved, Little Girls Must Get Used to Being Confronted With Male Genitalia

For liberal utopia to be achieved, people will have to make certain… adjustments. For example, women and girls are tasked with “overcoming discomfort” at the sight of “male genitalia” in restrooms and locker rooms. Those who object are the same as racists:

In a defense of President Obama’s order compelling schools to allow access to restrooms on the basis of gender identity, the Charlotte Observer editorial board compared the discomfort of school-aged girls seeing male genitalia in locker rooms to the discomfort of white people being around black people in post-segregation America.

“This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday,” the editorial said. “Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms — and vice versa — might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort — with blacks sharing facilities, with gays sharing marriage — then realizing it was not nearly so awful as some people imagined.”

Actually, we won’t know just how awful the judicial oligarchy’s homosexual marriage decree is until it is too late to do anything about it. By the time clerics who actually still believe in the Bible are getting thrown in jail for not conducting blasphemous ceremonies in their own churches, we will be so far down the slippery slope that the concept of “holy matrimony” will be a quaint memory — even if this is only a few short years from now.

While admitting that exposure to male genitalia is a possible outcome of transgender bathroom laws, the editorial said the notion that such laws constitute a threat to the privacy and safety of women and children is a “political fiction” pushed by Republicans.

This is no fiction:

In the midst of outcries from the transgender community that women don’t face threats in public bathrooms, police in England are looking for a man who allegedly took photos of a 13-year-old girl while she used the bathroom at a McDonalds in Berkshire.

According to police reports, while using the bathroom in an individual stall, the girl heard a click over her head, looked up and saw someone hovering over the cubicle wall. Police say the girl was very upset by the incident, and her family is concerned about what’s going to happen to the photographs and where they might be published.

What’s the big deal, progressives may ask. It’s not as if she was choked into unconsciousness.

Obviously incidents like this will become more frequent after liberal authoritarians have mandated that male perverts must be granted access to women’s facilities.

Portraits in Countermoonbattery: Katrina Elaine Jorgensen

Until recently, we were in a training camp, not on an actual battlefield. We were engaged in practice maneuvers that did not entail live ammo. No one on the right was going to lose their audience or their career by hurling practice grenades at the authoritarian progressives in the other party. So the grenades were hurled boldly, even if they didn’t have much effect.

Then suddenly the training camp was invaded by the enemy. Now real bullets are flying. Say things that the followers of a certain authoritarian progressive don’t like, and there will be concrete (e.g., monetary) consequences, as I can attest.

That’s why previously bold defenders of conservative values have dropped their rifles. Some are hiding in ditches, waiting until it is safe to come out. Others have demonstrated their character and sincerity by defecting to the enemy.

But as their cowardly comrades cut and run, a few have shown the courage to hold the line, even against increasingly desperate odds. One example is Katrina Elaine Jorgensen:

The national communications chair for the Young Republicans has announced her resignation, saying she refuses to abandon her conservative principles in order to support the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump.

Katrina Elaine Jorgensen, an editor at the Independent Journal Review, announced her resignation in a Facebook post Monday afternoon.

“Regretfully, I am resigning from my position as Communications Chair with the [Young Republican National Federation],” she wrote. “With the practically fulfilled nomination of Donald Trump as our presidential candidate, I can no longer continue to carry out the duties of this position. My principles will not allow it.”

She understands that to support Trump’s campaign is to betray everything conservatives stand for: moral decency, limited government, property rights, free trade, individual liberty/responsibility, strong international posture, and possibly most important of all, preservation of what’s left of our national character.

“As the head of our national communications my voice is part of our message, and I am intrinsically tied to it. Therefore I must step down. I cannot live with being seen as supporting a candidate I truly feel tramples on all of our values. […] I wanted Young Republicans to be part of the conversation about the White House, to be seen for all the hard work we put in year after year to elect Republicans. But I never could have imagined this outcome. And I cannot use my skills, or implement the plan I laid out for 2016, without feeling like I am losing my soul.”

This has been referred to as the Colonel Nicholson moment: when you realize that even if you get killed doing it, it would be better to blow up the bridge you worked so hard to build than to let the enemy use it against what you have been fighting for.

“There is no easy answer to the situation our party is in, but I believe we would do much more for our country by standing together against Donald Trump,” she wrote.

Ms. Jorgensen noted that Trump endorses lawlessness and has “a minimal understanding of the fiscal policies long associated with our party.” She also accuses him of bigotry, a reference to his classic fascist tactic of whipping up the mob against targeted groups.

“I cannot stand by and continue to write newsletters and posts that so strongly conflict with my personal values. I will not surrender my beliefs,” she wrote. “This is not the way forward. I will not quietly fall in line. I will not give up my principles. I will always be #NeverTrump.”

Fox News and talk radio are crowded with self-serving mercenaries who will side with whomever they are paid to side with. The real soldiers fighting in the trenches because they believe in the cause — people like Katrina Elaine Jorgensen — are warriors rather than apparatchiks. They are a higher breed.

Hats off to a heroine.

Valerie Jarrett Credits Obama With Ending Two Wars

Can you name two accomplishments of the dismal Hope & Change Administration? Obama’s chief teleprompter programmer Valerie Jarrett can:

White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett was tasked with listing some of the ways President Obama made good on his promise to bring “hope and change” to America during her interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” this weekend. … During her answer, Jarrett had the audacity to say that Obama “ended two wars” during his two-term tenure.

Jarrett’s comments would be news to our military. The president declared he was pulling out American troops from Iraq in 2011, only to send over 4,000 soldiers back. Meanwhile, we are launching thousands of airstrikes against ISIS and assisting Iraqi forces in their new effort to retake the important city of Fallujah.

As for Afghanistan,

While the interview may have been conducted before the official Pentagon announcement, her comments coincided with the news that a drone strike had taken out Taliban leader Mansour in the Pakistan province of Baluchistan – the latest sign of the prolonged fight in the Middle East and South Asia.

Maybe what ValJar meant to say is that Obama put us on course to lose two wars that we were winning when he took office. But the wars are still ongoing, so it is premature to give him credit for actually having lost them.

New York City Lists 31 Official Genders

In the world of biology, there are two genders. In the world of sheer moonbattery known as New York City, there are 31, helpfully listed online by the NYC Commission on Human Rights:

7. FTM
11. MTF
12. NON-OP
18. MAN

You will notice some redundancy. For example, female-to-male and FTM mean the same thing. Don’t expect efficiency from Big Government.

Referring to online glossaries provided by the prestigious institutions of higher education University of Wisconsin and University of California, Berkeley, the Daily Caller has helpfully provided some definitions for those who do not hold government-subsidized PhDs in gender oppression studies:

Someone who identifies as “genderqueer,” for example, is a “person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders.”

A “gender bender” is someone “who bends, changes, mixes, or combines society’s gender conventions by expressing elements of masculinity and femininity together.”

Similarly, someone who is “gender fluid” is a person “whose gender identification and presentation shifts, whether within or outside of societal, gender-based expectations.”

If someone self-identifies as “androgynous,” it means they are “appearing and/or identifying as neither man nor woman, presenting a gender either mixed or neutral.”

“Two spirit” individuals are Native Americans “who have attributes of both men and women, have distinct gender and social roles in their tribes, and are often involved with mystical rituals (shamans).”

If someone is “pangender,” their “gender identity is comprised of all or many gender expressions.”

They do more than waste your tax dollar on this sick lunacy. They ram it down your throat — at gunpoint. As noted earlier, those who fail to pander to perverts’ surreal sexual identities will be fined up to $250,000. Refuse to pay the fine and men with guns will drag you off to prison.

We are ruled by freakish degenerate lunatics.

NRA’s Trump Endorsement

A gun rights advocate who has not been drinking the Kool-Aid sounds off on the NRA’s misguided endorsement of Donald Trump:

Then there is this, via Western Rifle Shooters Association:


Yeah I know, Shrillary is worse than Trump on guns — according to their recent rhetoric. But remember that Shrillary’s lies have been pulled to the left by commie kook Bernie Sanders, whereas Trump’s have been pulled to the right by GOA-endorsed Ted Cruz.

The past is the only reliable predictor of the future. In terms of how they would actually govern based on their long public histories, the two progressives would probably be indistinguishable on this issue, as on most others. That’s why people who realize Trump didn’t spring into existence last fall when he abruptly and temporarily tacked right to get the nomination call him the Orange Hillary.

Hillary and Dogs

Shrillary must be spending too much time around Muslims like Huma Abedin. She seems to be developing a thing about dogs. From a speech she gave this week:

“Dog trainers are paid more than child care workers. You know, look, I believe in training dogs. But, you don’t dress your dog up and send your dog to kindergarten, do you? You don’t dream of sending your dog to college, do you? You don’t worry about whether your dog is going to be exposed to dangerous influences because you can’t afford quality childcare, do you? This is crazy.”

Nothing sounds crazier than the word “crazy” barked by Shrillary. As RedState notes:

It’s of course a totally arbitrary and weird comparison. We don’t send bridges to college either, but I bet there are engineers who make more money than a daycare employee. It’s not a very well-chosen metaphor either for a pro-choice candidate to compare children and animals.

Seriously though, it’s not as if Shrillary really has anything against dogs. Sometimes she even indulges in a little pup play:

Allowing Carbon Emissions Is Revealed to Be Unconstitutional

Maybe the Constitution is as bad as progressives say. Literally all human activity produces CO2; the more productive the activity, the more CO2 it will probably produce, which is fortunate for the plants it nourishes. However, now we learn that failing to punish the production of CO2 is unconstitutional:

The current unwillingness or inability of Congress to deal systematically with the problem of climate change threatens both the world’s climate—which nearly everyone has noticed—and the United States Constitution–which has gone virtually unnoticed.

The discredited theory that CO2 has a deleterious effect on the climate is assumed as fact, despite the failure of temperatures to rise in correlation with CO2 levels.

Here’s how the Constitution comes into it:

The longer Congress takes to form the necessary bipartisan coalition to legislate on the subject, the more tempting it becomes for people who are alarmed at the world’s problem, to look to other branches of the government to rescue the Earth.

For example, if Congress would just do what he wants, Obama wouldn’t have to weaken the Constitution by ruling by decree:

Obama’s executive action to use the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate coal-burning power plants is meeting serious opposition from the attorneys general of several states on grounds of legality and constitutionality.

Already, Peabody Energy has procured the services of Harvard Law School’s famous constitutional lawyer Lawrence Tribe to assert its interests in a federal court and thus challenge the imperial reach of our modern presidency.

There have also been tyrannical attempts to use courts to limit the amount of harmless carbon we produce.

So if you don’t want Obama and leftist courts indulging in authoritarianism, encourage Congress to rubberstamp their pernicious demands. Neither the climate nor the Constitution will thank you, but moonbats will.

As if to enlighten those who still haven’t realized that when they talk about “climate change” they are talking about socialism, author Mark E. Neely Jr. makes a disclosure:

I am a member of the State College chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which works ceaselessly and patiently for legislation in Congress to put a reasonable fee on the production of carbon at the source and to pass along to the American People, in equal shares for every person, the revenues thus derived.

He wants Congress to impose this repressive form of collectivist egalitarianism in the name of the Constitution.

Answer: Because heavy-handed regulation is not a means but an end.

The Dark Side of Zakia Belkhiri, Useful Idiot Islamophile Icon

Moonbats sure love Zakia Belkhiri, thanks to a selfie they regard as iconic.


From NewsBusters:

Vice, The Huffington Post, Vox, BuzzFeed, and numerous other left-wing sites were so ready to proclaim her as a beacon of hope, claiming her ‘peace selfie’ in-front of a group of anti-Muslim protestors as a true representation of the Muslim faith.

The selfie-taker, 22-year-old Zakia Belkhiri, told BuzzFeed News that her motive for taking the pictures was to show that “we can live together, not [just] next to each other, but with each other”.

The hearts of those who revere Ms. Belkhiri must swell with self-righteousness. The selfie, taken against a backdrop of people protesting refugee policies that are allowing Islamic colonists to displace the European population, is indisputable evidence that the 28,000+ lethal Muslim terror attacks just since 9/11 are a fluke. We can see with our own eyes that Islam is the Religion of Peace, just like they say on TV.

Grown Men Who Present Themselves as Dogs

Now that political correctness has overruled biological reality, men can be women. It stands to reason that they can also be dogs:

Around 10,000 people follow the pet play craze in the UK, according to Channel 4’s Secret Life of the Human Pups, which explores the phenomenon.

A 28-year-old Oxford graduate named Kye says that it is “a form of escapism.” Kye must have majored in psychology.

The programme also features the sad story of Tom, 32, a theatre technician from Tring, Hertforshire, who split up with his fiancee Rachel because of his yearning to dress up as a Dalmatian.

He says: ‘You disappear and start chasing puppy toys. You go so deep into the head space, you crave it and want it. It’s just magic.’

‘I didn’t understand it. I didn’t want to understand it,’ says Rachel, who remains friends with Tom.

To understand would probably shatter a sane person’s mind.

Tom has spent more than £4,000 over the past 10 years on his canine habit and he shows off his rubber costume, complete with breathing tube, but admits: ‘It is quite awkward to put on, you need a lot of talc.’

So intense is Tom’s craving that he has taken to sleeping in a dog training crate, lined with puppy training pads in case he has to answer the call of nature.

As with transsexuals, there is an entire subculture of these people:

Tom – or Spot, as he likes to be known – was crowned Mr Puppy UK in November – pipping Minty and Oakleigh – and is filmed travelling to the finals of Mr Puppy Euro in Belgium.

In addition to pup play, Spot is also into BDSM. He must get his money’s worth when he buys leashes.

Recalling his ruined relationship, Tom/Spot has a brief moment of lucidity:

‘A tiny bit of me regrets being a puppy because I lost what I had.’

But no doubt seeing a squirrel to chase is enough to make him forget all about it.

Although bizarre sex may occur in the context of pup play, it is not the same thing as the furry fetish.

Furries are people who dress up in animal costumes and take on the persona of that animal.

Occasionally they engage in full-on sex in costume but more common is the bizarre practice of ‘yiffing’, a form of dry-humping.

Earlier this month nearly 3,000 people attended the annual Biggest Little Fur Con convention in Reno, Nevada, including around 700 people in fursuits.

So far Obama has not issued any authoritarian decrees regarding bathroom accommodations for furries and people who pretend they are dogs.

As sanity frays, dignity falls into disrepute, and theatrical self-indulgence reigns supreme, it couldn’t be more obvious that what is left of Western Civilization is going to the dogs.

Naked Moonbats Wrapped in Plastic

PETA kooks make such utter fools of themselves in their desperate need for attention, it would be cruel not to give them a little — in the form of derisive laughter, of course:

Naked animal rights activists have covered themselves in blood and wrapped themselves in giant meat packaging in the middle of Barcelona.

The Spanish branch of animal rights organisation AnimaNaturalis staged the protest on Sunday, on Barcelona’s Sant Jaume plaza.

Activists protested completely naked in the busy plaza, lying on large Styrofoam trays, covered in fake blood and wrapped in transparent plastic – similarly to how meat is often packaged in supermarkets.

The purpose of course was to make us feel guilty about consuming a normal human diet.

Barcelona has already officially declared itself a “veggie friendly” city, but that’s not good enough for the moonbats. Among their demands:

The organisation would like the government to commit at least one day to campaigning for a diet free of animal products.

What They Sell Out When They Sell Out to Trump

Even in the world of politics, it is hard to find people less worthy of respect that those who understand what Trump is but sell out to him anyway:

RICK PERRY, JULY 22, 2015: “Let no one be mistaken — Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded. […] I will not go quiet when this cancer on conservatism threatens to metastasize into a movement of mean-spirited politics that will send the Republican party to the same place it sent the Whig Party in 1854: the graveyard.”

RICK PERRY, MAY 5, 2016: “He is not a perfect man. But what I do believe is he loves his country and he will surround himself with capable, experienced people and he will listen to them. . . . I believe in the process, and the process has said Donald Trump will be our nominee and I’m going to support him and help him and do what I can.”

First he acknowledges Trumpism as a cancer, then he proclaims his intention to help that cancer metastasize.

Not to single out Rick Perry…

Perry is far from alone in his hypocrisy. […T]he Republican aristocracy is for the most part bending its knee to the new king, proving that much of the “establishment” is exactly as craven as Trump always claimed.

Already the long knives are out for those who won’t sell out their conservative principles and knuckle under to Trump.

The litmus test in the new Republican party boils down to loyalty, not to a principle or conviction, but to a man: Trump.

It’s a cult of personality, pure and simple. One cannot even agree with Trump on his “policies,” because that is like committing to the blob in a lava lamp. …

The GOP platform can now be written on a bumper sticker: “In Trump We Trust.”

There is a word for a hyper-nationalist, authoritarian political system organized around a fetishized strongman who ignores rule of law in order to “get things done”: fascism. The word has been overused as a pejorative for decades, but here it literally applies. Trump may be a liberal Democrat by inclination, but he is running as a fascist.

Trump made this explicit during the debates, when he declared that he would force agents of the US government to torture and murder in violation of the law:

No American president would talk this way. Trump isn’t running for president; he is running for dictator. To support him is to support rejecting our mode of government in favor of the one we defeated in WWII.

Establishment apparatchiks are wrong to demand that we vote for Trump out of party loyalty. Party loyalty calls for defending the GOP from those who are hijacking it for their own malevolent purposes, not siding with them after they strong-arm their way into the cockpit. Americans should have higher loyalties than to a party anyway.

If Trump is elected after promising to violate the law, to torture, to murder, and to suppress political dissent, he will have a mandate to do so. Even if he never acts on that mandate, this will never again be the same country once the mandate has been granted.

Once Trump has been licensed to rule as an autocrat, other autocrats will follow. Restraints on tyranny are easy to discard but very difficult to reinstitute.
