Chris Christie Worse Than We Knew

Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment was excellent advice: “Thou shalt not speak ill of thy fellow Republican.” The last thing we want is to help moonbats by firing on each other instead of the enemy while they destroy the country. But what to do when Republicans are moonbats themselves?

Chris Christie has joined the herd of GOP also-rans who are helping to secure Trump’s nomination by diverting votes from Ron DeSantis. Christie stands no chance of winning the nomination himself, which is a blessing, considering his appraisal of past presidents:

Christie admonished George Washington while praising the foreign policy of former President Woodrow Wilson, who has been regarded as one of the worst presidents in history mostly due to his insistence in involving America in World War I and his failure to negotiate a fair peace with Germany, which could have prevented World War II.

Wilson, who opposed the US constitution, has been called the world’s first fascist dictator. Mussolini acknowledged him as a role model. Only Hitler himself was more responsible than Wilson for causing the greatest cataclysm in world history, WWII.

“In 1917, when Europe was at war and dictatorships were taking over the entire continent, and America had followed the admonition of George Washington since its founding to stay out of foreign entanglements, Woodrow Wilson said, ‘no, if America allows Europe to go under dictatorship, we will be next,’” explained Christie. “Franklin Roosevelt said the same thing 24 years later when Hitler and Mussolini and Hirohito decided that dictatorship is what was going to rule the world.”

Few fault Roosevelt for standing up to the Nazis and imperial Japanese. But FDR did more than even Wilson to increase the power of the federal government at the expense of liberty.

George Washington is the gold standard by whom all other leaders should be judged. Comparing the father of our country unfavorably to the personification of federal hypertrophy disqualifies Christie for public office.

Christie’s rhetoric is particularly alarming in light of the recklessly belligerent views some hold regarding Ukraine, a situation that could easily escalate into WWIII if we continue to butt in where we have no business.

As Politico reported, “recent polling suggests the former New Jersey governor is deeply unpopular with Republican voters. He has the highest unfavorable ratings of any candidate in the field. Sixty percent say they would not support him under any circumstances. No other contender has numbers even close to that bad.”

Maybe Christie is angling for his own show on CNN.

Reparations Math

Now that education has succumbed to the Long March Through the Institutions, the subject is never the subject; the subject is always moonbattery. This applies even to math:

High school students will learn about the causes of racial inequality and discuss reparations for slavery as part of a new “reparations math” curriculum developed by the creators of the controversial 1619 Project.

The 1619 Project has been pushed by the odious New York Times, flagship publication of the liberal establishment. It provides a fictional alternative version of American history, in which Americans — specifically America’s core population — are the bad guys. The American Revolution was fought to secure slavery, not liberty, because the oppression of blacks is at the root of everything, in accordance with Critical Race Theory.

When they apply this theory to astronomy, as they already have to history and math, students will learn that if a piece of rock orbits some undiscovered planet on the far side of the universe, it does so not because of gravity but because privileged blacks feel themselves to be oppressed.

The 1619 Project Education Network provides a lesson summary of what teenagers are to learn under “Reparations Math and Reparations History”:

Students apply math skills, research into historical wealth gaps in the U.S., and an analysis of different reparations models to an investigation into whether or not reparations should be paid to the descendents of enslaved people in the U.S.

In other words, 2 + 2 = Cough up your money, Whitey!

This toxic ideology is imposed throughout the country:

Educational materials related to the 1619 Project have been widely taught since its release in August 2019. A report by John Murawski of RealClearInvestigations in 2020 noted the 1619 Project curriculum had been adopted in over 3,500 classrooms across all 50 states, mostly through “administrative fiat” rather than a public review process.

Black conservative Carol Swain, who used to teach law and political science at Vanderbilt, observes the obvious:

“The curriculum materials for math are clearly geared towards politicizing the youngest minds.”

Ian Rowe, another black conservative, notes that the curriculum “is pure indoctrination designed to perpetuate an ideology of black dependency and retribution for historical and presumed present day racial victimization.”

Unfortunately, dissident voices who favor historical reality and black self-respect will be denounced as Uncle Toms and drowned out by a mob of parasites shouting, “Gimme!”

Eric Adams Wants to Quarter Illegal Aliens in Private Homes

Eric Adams, floundering left-wing mayor of the sanctuary city New York, wants to quarter some of the millions of unlawful invaders his party has invited across the undefended border in private homes:

Adams didn’t offer up specifics on how the plan would work – including how much New Yorkers could potentially receive per night to cover the cost of hosting a migrant. …

He did say, however, that the city would pay places of worship a nightly rate of about $125 for each asylum seeker – which is cheaper than the $380 it costs to put up a migrant household – including a family with kids or just single adults – in one of its shelter hotels.

Considering that 2,200 invaders showed up at NYC shelters last week alone, taxpayers will have to cough up plenty.

After the last taxpayer escapes New York, programs like this will have to go federal. Then taxpayers won’t be needed; Joe Biden can just print the money.

Harboring aliens is a federal crime (Title 8 US Code § 1324). But laws are irrelevant under rulers who recruit illegal aliens as police officers and dispense free drug fiend paraphernalia via vending machines.

NYC Council Republican leader Joe Borelli posted on social media: “What are the goals? When do we stop paying? What is the off-ramp?”

The only off-ramp is the total overthrow of liberal rule.

Not What They Stormed the Beaches For on D-Day

Don’t click to watch this video unless you really want to see what we are required by our moonbat rulers to embrace:

Of course there were children in attendance. Like many of these events, it was explicitly billed as family friendly:

A gay Pride Parade in California billed as fun for “the whole family” caused a stir online after graphic videos from the parade were shared on social media.

West Hollywood had a three day “WeHo Pride” event last weekend featuring concerts, a street fair, a “Women’s Freedom Festival,” and a “dyke march.” The event ended with a “WeHo Pride Parade” on Sunday, which was billed as appropriate for the entire family.

“The WeHo Pride Parade will step off at noon on Sunday, June 4th along Santa Monica Blvd. from Crescent Heights to San Vicente and is a colorful and entertaining event for the whole family. Last year’s parade drew out tens of thousands of spectators to the streets of West Hollywood!” the website states.

The parade was yet another manifestation of the ideology that is relentlessly rammed down our throats by the degenerate left-wing ruling class through the schools, the media, big business, and the government.

You can be arrested for failing to “respect” these disgusting spectacles:

No heroes, not even those who stormed the beaches on D-Day 79 years ago, can save a country once and for all. Each generation is responsible for saving it. If people don’t step up when their courage is required, their country will be destroyed, as we have been witnessing.

Free Crack Pipes in NYC Vending Machines

Our moonbat overlords can apply the principle of anarchotyranny to anything — from police recruitment that encourages illegal immigration to vending machines that force taxpayers to subsidize the violation of drug laws:

Big Apple officials unveiled a street vending machine Monday that covers it all when it comes to catering to drug-users, offering free handy paraphernalia such as crack pipes and lip balm — and also Narcan for overdoses.

The lip balm “can be used to smoke crack and crystal meth.” Naturally the free goodies also include condoms.

The vending machine, one of four set to be placed in some of the city’s most drug-infested neighborhoods, swaps out what would be more typical offerings such as candy bars and potato chips for the drug-related freebies to try to combat the surge in overdoses in the five boroughs, city Health Department bigs said.

The machines cost taxpayers $11,000 apiece, party supplies not included.

While the first machine does not include syringes, future ones may include them, [Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner Ashwin] Vasan said.

New York’s Health and Mental Hygiene Commissioner uses public funds to facilitate recreational drug use, during a drug crisis that has been leaving people “in a catatonic state and with conditions that eat their flesh off.”

Once again we see that liberal rule entails the absolute inversion of sanity.

Illegal Alien Police Officers

The system of government moonbats seek to impose is known as “anarchotyranny.” It combines tyrannical government overreach with contempt for rule of law, as liberal Illinois demonstrates by recruiting illegal aliens as police officers:

A bill aimed at clearing a path for recipients of a federal immigration program to become police officers — and at the same time helping departments that say they are struggling with recruitment — is moving forward with bipartisan support in the Illinois Legislature, but only after being amended to make clear that potential hires need to get federal approval to carry a gun.

The federal immigration program is DACA, which applies specifically to people who are in the USA in violation of American law.

Federal law generally bars noncitizens from carrying guns unless it’s for “official use,” meaning police officers who are not U.S. citizens would not be allowed to carry the weapons off-duty, according to a spokesperson for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Illinois legislators want the federal government to change the rules so that people who are in the country illegally can carry guns legally even when not on duty as police officers.

The measure’s Democratic sponsor in the House is state Rep. Barbara Hernandez, whose aim is to help recipients of the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, become police officers while also giving law enforcement agencies another option for recruiting.

Recruiting has been a problem because Democrat authorities aggressively side with criminals against law enforcement. This alarming phenomenon has been taken to the last extreme in Chicago, whose leftist fever swamps spawned the community organizer who went on to push DACA as the 44th president. Maybe the recruitment and morale problems will be mitigated when the cops themselves violate the law just by being here.

Multiple states including of course California allow illegal aliens who qualify for Obama’s DACA program to be police officers.

The legislation passed 101-0 in the Illinois House on March 24 and is now before the Senate, where it already has two sponsors.

Update: The bill has now passed both houses.

The next logical step is to enlist convicts as police officers rather than incarcerating them. This will have the desired effect of reducing the prison population. It could be how Dim and Billyboy got jobs as bobbies in A Clockwork Orange.

Nearly One Third of Gen Z Want Telescreens in Homes

Add telescreens to the many things George Orwell accurately predicted in 1984. Cameras have not yet been installed in our homes so that Big Government can eradicate privacy entirely and monitor everything we do. But they are coming soon — with the support of a populace so degraded by moonbattery that it can no longer grasp essential concepts like freedom and dignity:

In a newly released Cato Institute 2023 Central Bank Digital Currency National Survey of 2,000 Americans, we asked respondents whether they “favor or oppose the government installing surveillance cameras in every household to reduce domestic violence, abuse, and other illegal activity.”

Appallingly, 14% of Americans favor the idea. Among the generation that stormed the beaches of Normandy 79 years ago today, it would have been close to 0%. Otherwise, there wouldn’t have been much point to D-Day.

The news gets worse:

Americans under the age of 30 stand out when it comes to 1984‐style in‐home government surveillance cameras. 3 in 10 (29 percent) Americans under 30 favor “the government installing surveillance cameras in every household” in order to “reduce domestic violence, abuse, and other illegal activity.” Support declines with age, dropping to 20 percent among 30–44 year olds and dropping considerably to 6 percent among those over the age of 45.

No doubt young liberals would argue that privacy is racist and homophobic, because it allows people to express unapproved thoughts. You can’t expect them to have more respect for the Fourth Amendment than they do for the First.

With each passing generation, the relentless attack social engineers call Critical Theory eats away at the foundations of society.

The deliberately engineered demographic transformation also comes into play. Nine percent of whites favor in-home surveillance cameras, compared to 25% of Hispanics and 33% of blacks.

It isn’t enough to conserve what’s left. There needs to be a dramatic reversal or America is doomed.

Transsexual Felon Awarded Half $Million

They don’t make social justice jackpots in Minnesota like they do in New York. Being a woman of color who was late for work 47 times is worth $11.25 million in NYC. But a guy calling himself Christina Lusk was only able to collect $495,000 for being a cross-dressing felon in Minnesota, despite transsexuals occupying the top tier of the liberal caste system:

A Minnesota transgender inmate is being moved to a women’s prison and will receive a vaginoplasty as well as $495,000 to settle a discrimination lawsuit against the state Department of Corrections. …

Lusk, who was arrested in 2018 and is serving a sentence until 2024 for a felony drug offense, sued the Minnesota DOC last year in part because it deferred Lusk’s request for a vaginoplasty, or “bottom surgery.”

In addition to sex-change surgery, taxpayers owe Lusk half a $million also because other criminals made fun of him for being a freak, instead of revering him as the rest of us are expected to do.

“Inmates would heckle her, heckle her roommates… call her ‘it,’ that sort of thing,” Gender Justice legal director Jess Braverman said, according to FOX 9. “And then there were staff who would say things to her, such as, ‘You know, you’re a man in a men’s prison. I’m not going to treat you like a woman. I’m not going to use your proper name and pronouns.’”

No doubt this qualifies as cruel and unusual punishment — unlike the punishment inflicted on women in women’s prisons who are locked up with male perverts.

In January, the Minnesota DOC joined 10 other states and the District of Columbia in establishing a policy by which inmates can be transferred to facilities that match their gender identity.

Women are getting raped and even impregnated due to these psychotic policies. A progressive might argue they deserve it for being TERFs who insensitively refuse to acknowledge that their rapists are women too.

Biden Managed to Fall Down Wearing These

As previously noted here and here, there is nothing remarkable about the aptly decrepit figurehead of the rotting liberal establishment taking a tumble — unless you consider what he had on his feet for his latest pratfall:

The Western Journal notes that…

…these are similar to the kind of heels the late Michael Jackson used to use — in a bit more pronounced fashion — to keep himself upright during difficult dance maneuvers.

Biden shares with the erstwhile King of Pop a supremely creepy interest in children, but they have little in common in terms of agility.

If Biden’s handlers know that he needs special shoes to help prevent him from falling down, they also know that he is too old to be running for reelection. But “Dr” Jill, Barack Obama, George Soros, and the rest of the team will run him anyway.

Antiwhite Discrimination Applied to Access to Water

Racial quotas have long discriminated against the whites who built South Africa regarding jobs. Now these will be applied to access to water:

Hot on the heels of newly-gazetted draft Race Quotas designed to ban entire groups of South Africans from employment in certain sectors and provinces, the ANC government has now also gazetted race quotas that will determine access to water on the basis of skin colour. …

The draft regulations, published by Minister of Water Senzo Mchunu on 19 May, introduce race quotas for the allocation of water use licences, which are vital to the survival of businesses in sectors such as agriculture, forestry and mining.

Under the ANC’s new water race quotas, applicants that use more than 250 000 m3 or withdraw more than a set minimum amount from streams need to meet strict racial quotas in order to get access to water – the single most critical resource required for life, livestock, agriculture and industry. Depending on the size of their water need, farmers or companies that have not “allocated” between 25% and 75% of its shares to what the regulations call “blacks,” will be denied access to water.

Once again, South Africa’s farmers take it in the teeth:

The consequences will be particularly devastating for the farmers who feed us all. 60% of South Africa’s water resources are currently used by agriculture to grow the food we all eat.

We know how this will turn out because similar race-based policies were applied to farms in Rhodesia, the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa that is now the starving basket case Zimbabwe.

Under these water race quotas, livestock will be left to die from thirst because a farmer has the “wrong” skin colour. Fields will go fallow because those who till it are “undesirable.”

Blacks will starve too, but it is worth it to them to poke white farmers in the eye.

Speaking of farming in the Rainbow Utopia,

Former South African rugby star Lukas van Biljon is said to be ‘broken and devastated’ after his father died from gunshot wounds in a horrific farm attack in South Africa.

Tragic Andre van Biljon, 70, was blasted three times in the chest at midnight on Saturday and his son, ex-Springbok hooker Lukas, 47, was stabbed repeatedly with a knife.

Although authorities are effectively on the side of the criminals, two of the attackers were actually captured — because local farmers set up a roadblock and caught them.

Farmers in South Africa are under daily threat with 333 brutal attacks throughout the country last year which resulted in 55 horrific murders of men, women and children.

The attacks are usually highlighted by the cruelty inflicted with women often raped and both men and women first tortured with hot irons, power tools and boiling water.

Most victims are then mercilessly shot dead with stabbing and strangulation the second and third causes of death.

South Africa provides context for the plan openly advocated by leftists like Joe Biden to make whites a minority in the USA.

Bible Removed From Utah Schools

It’s not as if we didn’t see this coming. The tolerant, open-minded liberals who rule over us have managed to ban the Bible in Utah’s second largest school district:

Officials in the Davis district – a 72,000-student district north of Salt Lake City – removed the religious text from elementary and middle schools but will keep it in high schools.

A committee with the district reviewed The Good Book after a complaint by a parent, and district officials say the committee is made up of parents, teachers and administrators.

There was also a complaint to remove the Book of Mormon from younger students’ libraries.

Such complaints come in response to countermoonbat attempts to remove homosexual child pornography from public schools, which liberals have characterized as book banning.

Even if the objective was only to make an idiotic point, denouncing the Bible as vulgar and violent resulted in the book that has provided the moral framework for Western Civilization for the past 2,000 years being removed from schools.

Liberals will shift their emphasis to the many passages in the Bible proscribing homosexuality when they ban the Bible at the federal level on the grounds that it is hate speech. Be sure you have a secure place to hide yours when we get to the point of Cultural Revolution-style house-to-house searches.
