Hillary Clinton Weighs In on Farcical Kavanaugh Stall Tactics

Among the most crucial foundation stones of civilization are due process and the presumption of innocence. Without them, society dissolves into a feeding frenzy of baseless allegations, as happened in Salem during the witch trials, in France during the Reign of Terror, and in China during the Cultural Revolution, and as is beginning to happen in the USA thanks to the #MeToo craze. Do we really want to subject ourselves to a bloodbath where anyone can be destroyed at any time by anyone else with an unsubstantiated allegation like Christine Blasey Ford’s improbable claim that a teenage Brett Kavanaugh pawed her 30-odd years ago? Hillary Clinton does.

Other than being the worst major party presidential candidate in American history, Hillary is best known for being married to serial sexual abuser Bill Clinton, and for covering for his numberless sexual assaults by attacking his victims. Now that the accused sexual abuser is a decent man who is almost certainly totally innocent, she waves the #MeToo flag and howls for blood.

It may be too much even for Rachel Maddow, who asked,

Your husband when he was president faced allegations that were not the same as this, certainly, but had connections to these kinds of old allegations from years ago. And I know you had concerns at the time. Your husband certainly had concerns at the time that he never really had due process to defend himself from allegations like this. Have we learned anything over the years about due process not just for the accusers but also for the accused?

What Hillary learned is that due process is for her side, not for the other side. Kavanaugh’s confused accuser, who cannot even remember when or where the assault she most likely invented from whole cloth was supposed to have happened, deserves the “benefit of the doubt.”

No, Hillary. It is the accused who gets the benefit of the doubt. You flunk the sixth-grade civics test.

In this case, giving Ford the benefit of the doubt would mean pulling Kavanaugh’s nomination or stalling it long enough for Democrats to take back the Senate so that they could nix any Republican nominee, all on the word of a left-wing college professor who offers no evidence or even specifics as to time and place.

A dog and pony show of an investigation would be conducted that would drag on indefinitely like the Russian collusion farce in an impossible quest to prove Ford’s vague accusations. Everyone knows that no evidence would be uncovered against Kavanaugh. This doesn’t matter, because he would already have been denied his Supreme Court seat.

This amounts to execution first, trial later.

Meanwhile Mark Judge, the only witness to the crime according to Ford’s account, describes her allegations as “absolutely nuts.”

If Republicans play along with slimy Democrat stall tactics instead of laughing them off, they will only get more of them.

Saying That Boys Will Be Boys Is a Thought Crime

In their impatience to impose utopia, social engineers have gone beyond striking forbidden words from the Newspeak Dictionary. Now they are eliminating whole phrases, including “boys will be boys”:

A new University of Michigan study urges preschool teachers to avoid saying “they’re just boys being boys” or to remind girls to have “good manners,” lest those teachers accidentally “contribute to gender inequality in early childhood.”

Boys and girls behave differently because they are different. However, this indisputable biological fact is regarded as heresy by the warped ideologues dominating fields such as sociology and education.

According to liberal dogma, males and females are exactly the same, except that males are sexist and bad, just as whites and blacks are exactly the same, except that whites are racist and bad.

The obvious differences between boys and girls must be an illusion, because it would be offensive to believe your own lying eyes rather than progressive theory. To explore the root causes of this illusion, Heidi Gansen was paid over $23,000 in research grants to hang out in preschools and collect evidence of thought crimes, which she presents in her study, “Push-Ups Versus Clean-Up: Preschool Teachers’ Gendered Beliefs, Expectations for Behavior, and Disciplinary Practices.”

Her study blames the perceived differences in behavior on inequity caused by teachers who “reify gendered practices” and “hegemonic gender ideologies.” A flagrant example is a teacher she denounces for expressing the sentiment that boys will be boys.

The objective of depraved B.S. like Heidi’s paper is to reengineer children and consequently adults to be more to liberals’ liking — i.e., to be freakishly unnatural:

“Perhaps if we change preschool teachers’ gendered expectations for boys’ and girls’ behaviors this will spark a change… and better allow for the possibility of children’s individual identities to be shaped differently,” urges Gansen.

The “gendered expectations” she has in mind are likely to turn a normal person’s stomach, considering that she has already received an award from the American Sociological Association for waging war against heteronormativity in preschools.

Watch Armed Invasion of USA

You might think that a country that spends about $892 billion per year on the military would make an effort to defend itself from armed invasion. But no:

Jim Chilton, 79, owns a 50,000-acre ranch situated on the U.S.-Mexico border, which has become a hotspot for illegals crossing into the country.

Security camera footage from as recently as 2018 shows individuals in camouflage toting large backpacks and in some cases what appears to be military-style assault rifles walking through his ranch into the States incident free.

Here’s what Arizona’s border with Mexico looks like these days:

Since the military isn’t used for its primary purpose, can we taxpayers have our $892 billion back?

Canadian Moonbats Move to Ban Firewood

To the long list of things progressives will take away from people out of sheer moonbattery, we can add the word-burning stoves and fireplaces that some people rely on for heat in the winter – especially up in Canada:

What could be more wholesome and traditional than a fire-warmed hearth? You can see why leftists would want to ban firewood, even if it means people freezing to death in the brutal Canadian winter.

Newspaper Publishers Give Maxine Waters Leadership Award

Politically speaking, we know where newspapers are coming from. Black-owned newspapers are coming from the same place, except farther out. To get an idea of how far out, infamously corrupt congresscritter Maxine Waters was just granted a National Leadership Award by the National Newspaper Publishers Association, which was formerly known as the National Negro Publishers Association.

This must be what they mean by leadership:

Although Mad Maxine isn’t easy to take seriously, the number of people willing to vote for characters of her caliber is a serious problem indeed. The American Mirror reports on her acceptance speech:

“Yes, I have worked against [the President]. No, I didn’t go to his inauguration. No, I didn’t go to his State of the Union. No, I do not go to the White House. No, I do not engage with him,” she said as the applause grew louder.

“All I want for him and about him is to be impeached and get him out of the White House!” she yelled, as the audience erupted.

Impeached on what grounds? Any grounds or none, as she soon confirms by addressing the objection that removing Trump would only leave Mike Pence in charge.

“Knock off the first one, and then go after the second one,” she said.

Just keep impeaching until a Democrat is in charge. That’s the fallback plan when voters don’t choose a Democrat president.

Democracy is a means to an end. That end is power for Democrats. When it fails to lead to this end, democracy is discarded in favor of whatever desperate tactics present themselves. This explains the disgusting behavior of Dianne Feinstein as she and others of her kind reduce the Brett Kavanaugh hearings to a shameful travesty.

There is a line between opposition and sedition. Maxine Waters differs from other Democrat pols only in how witlessly open she is about her willingness to cross it. Media support for crossing this line will not be limited to the National Newspaper Publishers Association.

Google to Begin Policing the Air

No longer content to police thought on the Internet, Google will now police the air:

Google’s Street View cars — the global cruisers that collect data for the making of more accurate maps — now have a new mission, and it’s one that’s sure to make the Green groups cheer. The tech company’s bolstering its fleet with updated pollution-recording devices from the San Francisco company, Aclima, to patrol streets in Europe and in the United States, and monitor fluctuating levels of air quality.

Carefully selected data will inevitably find its way to leftist politicians, who can implement appropriate policies if Google finds that we are emitting too much harmless carbon dioxide or actual pollutants.

Liberals already hate America’s love affair with cars. Imagine the arguments they can make against driving and in favor of rail, or buses, or bicycles — or walking — armed with the latest breaking snapshot figures on pollution levels, as recorded during a city’s rush hour.

Google is also partnering with the radical Environmental Defense Fund to get the data to those who can do the most damage to our way of life.

As Google Earth Outreach program manager Karin Tuxen-Bettman said in a statement reported by TechCrunch: “These measurements can provide cities with new neighborhood-level insights to help cities accelerate efforts in their transition to smarter, healthier cities.”

“Smarter” is libspeak for “less free.”

Democrats Exploit #MeToo Hysteria to Stall Kavanaugh Confirmation

As you probably know, a Democrat college professor named Christine Blasey Ford now claims that Brett Kavanaugh pawed her 36 years ago when both were teenagers, although she can’t remember exactly when or where. The credibility of her allegation registers near zero. Yet thanks in part to Jeff Flake, who characteristically lent Democrats an assist, this absurd ploy has successfully stalled Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation.

Now anyone in politics can be hamstrung at any time. All you need is one kook to make a vague, unsubstantiated, highly improbable accusation and everything comes to a stop.

The feminist Jacobins at the Washington Post are delighted by the political weaponization of #MeToo mania.

The Wall Street Journal is less enthusiastic about the confirmation being stalled while this woman is given a national stage from which to smear Kavanaugh:

Democrats will use Monday’s hearing as a political spectacle to coax Mr. Kavanaugh into looking defensive or angry, and to portray Republicans as anti-women. Odds are it will be a circus.

It is already a circus. Consider Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz,

who has a history of Democratic activism and spoke in public defense of Bill Clinton against the accusations by Paula Jones.

Ringmaster of this circus act is the odious Dianne Feinstein:

The ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee knew about Ms. Ford’s accusations in late July or early August yet kept quiet. If she took it seriously, she had multiple opportunities to ask Judge Kavanaugh or have committee staff interview the principals. But in that event the details would have been vetted and Senators would have had time to assess their credibility.

It is a transparent political stunt, lacking any subtlety. We are past subtlety now.

[Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s] obvious political goal is to delay the confirmation vote past the election, fan the #MeToo political furies until then, and hope that at least two GOP Senators wilt under political pressure.

Our system of government has served us well for over 2 centuries. Do we really want to give it up in favor of the shrieking hysterics of the #MeToo reign of terror? Schumer won’t like it if Republicans start employing the same slimy tactics so that neither party can appoint Supreme Court justices.

It was tragic the way Democrats led by Joe Biden degraded the Clarence Thomas hearings with the phony Anita Hill allegations. The one thing Karl Marx had right is that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.

Nike Store Calls Cops on Guy Waving Pro-Police Flag

Nike has won the corporate race to the furthest extreme of in-your-face moonbattery by making the rabidly anti-American and anti–law enforcement Colin Kaepernick the face of its new advertising campaign. What would happen if a patriot were to sit on the tailgate of his truck and wave a thin blue line flag, indicating support for the police, in front of an Arkansas Nike store? The manager would call the police, of course:

[Jimmie] Cavin tells us, he sat on his tailgate and didn’t say anything to anybody.

“I guess probably 15 minutes into it, a Little Rock patrol car pulled up,” Cavin says.

According to a police report Cavin showed us, officers showed up after a store manager reported a disturbance.

Seeing that there was no disturbance and having more serious demands on their time, the police soon left.

“So, Nike called the police on the guy supporting the police for supporting the police,” Cavin says.

No doubt the racially oppressed Colin Kaepernick would be even quicker to call the cops if someone were to sneak into his mansion and steal the socks he wore to practice back when he was a football player — the ones with the pigs in police hats.

Pervert Pretends to Be Helpless

In a society succumbing to moonbattery, people inevitably get the idea that the way to make others do what you want is to be helpless — or to make them think you are helpless:

A Gilbert, Arizona man was arrested for pretending to have Down syndrome and hiring caregivers to bathe him and change his diapers.

The 31-year-old pseudo-baby is named Paul Anthony Menchaca.

A second and third victim took over caregiving duties starting in July. Police say the three victims all know each other, and all said Menchaca would become sexually aroused as he was being bathed.

One of them finally smelled a rat and followed Menchaca home to his parents’ house, where she learned that his supposed disability was an act to get women to change his diapers.

Alarmingly, it looks like Menchaca works as a school crossing guard.

Maybe we don’t want to remove the stigma from adult baby diaper lovers after all. It may even be that the timeless stigma against disgusting perversions in general evolved for good reason.

Joe Biden Calls Republicans “Dregs of Society”

Most people who follow politics understand that it was not a wise move when Hillary Clinton, while running for president, denounced half of the American population as a “basket of deplorables.” But Joe Biden is not most people.

Despite his advanced age and general unsuitability for the office, Biden is likely to run for president in 2020. Yet while pandering to the militant LGBT galère Human Rights Campaign, he barked that supporters of the current president include “the dregs of society.”

“Forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you have made,” the former vice president warned his audience.

“This time they–not you–have an ally in the White House,” he said.

“They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people. Some of them, the dregs of society,” Biden said.

The “forces of intolerance” are those not on board with the LBGT agenda. What a relief to hear that only some of us are the dregs of society according to a top Democrat.

But actually, by “some,” he means “all,” as he soon makes clear in a reference to the August 2017 event in Charlottesville that saw leftist counterprotesters descend upon a demonstration by defenders of a targeted Civil War statue. Regrettably, one of the moonbats was run over by a maniac, providing ammunition to demagogues like Joe Biden, who yaps,

“We have leaders who at the time when that occurred, when these guys were accompanied by white supremacists and Ku Klux Klan…making a comparison saying there are good people in both groups.”

Trump should know better than try to be even-handed. As Biden enlightens us, there are no good people who oppose the leftist agenda. Such people are accompanied by white supremacists and the Ku Klux Klan. Every last person who doesn’t want statues of Robert E. Lee torn down is rotten to the core, and Trump is rotten for suggesting otherwise. The whole lot are the dregs of society.

You can see why Joe Biden is so enthused about the idea of a new America in which Caucasians are a minority. America as it always has been is full of people he hates.

Former NHL Forward Tim Brent Viciously Dogpiled for Hunting Bear

Congratulations to retired Canadian hockey player Tim Brent on a successful hunt:

Good thing a hunter came across this beast and not hikers or campers, who might have been mauled or killed.

Moonbats are not interested in sharing Brent’s jubilation. Fundamental to the progressive viewpoint is what you might call reflexive treason. If there is an “us” and a “them,” liberals will side with “them” as instinctively as John Kerry siding with Vietnamese communists and Iran’s terrorist regime against his own country. This explains the revolting spectacle of white people denouncing “white privilege” on behalf of less successful racial groups.

Another common symptom of progressivism is a chilling inability to recognize a moral difference between humans and animals.

Due to the defects noted above, in a contest between a wild beast and a human being, moonbats will take the animal’s side, with a characteristic combination of viciousness and grotesquely inappropriate self-righteousness.

Brent was blasted on Twitter by a hornet swarm of insults, threats, and bloodthirsty hopes that he gets killed by a bear. Never mind that hunting licenses are controlled so as neither to threaten the grizzly bear population nor to let it get out of hand. Moonbats reacted as if he had shot the last one earth.

A Lesson on Minimum Wage from Venezuela

Thanks go to Hugo Chavez and his successor Nicolas Maduro, for teaching us the sort of economic lessons that our own homegrown socialists have conspicuously failed to learn. For example, here is what minimum wage laws accomplish when there are no conservatives in a position to keep them relatively restrained:

Nearly 40 percent of all Venezuelan stores have closed —some of them perhaps permanently —after the government of President Nicolas Maduro increased the minimum salary by nearly 3,500 percent in one fell swoop, according the National Council of Commerce and Services of Venezuela.

Minimum wage laws are invariably part of a larger package of pernicious leftist lunacy.

Many of the companies, which had been barely surviving the gradual collapse of the economy, saw the salary increase and other changes announced last month as the fatal blow in a series of policies that have been gradually strangling their businesses.

Every government decree creates problems that are addressed with more government decrees. In this case, business owners were forbidden to raise prices in an attempt to pay the artificially inflated wage. For many, this made it impossible to stay in business while complying with the law.

Government policies have also created hyperinflation. The bolivar lost two-thirds of its value in August. The fix: retailers are required to sell at prices that no longer make sense economically. This is another reason many are closing up shop.

About four in 10 stores have not opened since Maduro announced the salary increase two weeks ago. And some of the stores that did open are liquidating their merchandise and plan to close definitively when that’s done.

Even as we watch this tragedy unfold, many Americans express a desire to follow in Venezuela’s footsteps by supporting Bernie Sanders and the radicalized Democrat Party.

Radical Kyrsten Sinema Fliers Emerge

If you watch television in Arizona, you are probably about ready to barf from all the Kyrsten Sinema commercials portraying her as an avid fan of the military in hopes of duping voters into electing her to the Senate. Meanwhile, even CNN admits this:

As an anti-war activist in the early 2000s, Arizona Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema led a group that distributed flyers depicting an American soldier as a skeleton inflicting “U.S. terror” in Iraq and the Middle East.

Although Sinema has recently positioned herself as a Blue Dog Democrat, she began her political career not very long ago in the ultra-radical Green Party.

The flyers, which are available through the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, promoted a February 2003 rally organized by Local to Global Justice, an anti-war group Sinema co-founded. Sinema was referred to as a leading organizer and sponsor of the anti-Iraq War rally in contemporaneous news reports and websites for the organizations involved. She is also repeatedly listed as the point of contact for the event.

Want to learn what it would be like to be ruled by Antifa? Electing Sinema might help you to find out.

Another flyer urged direct action “against Bush and his fascist, imperialist war.” A cartoon on the flyer said, “Government is slavery,” and “Its laws are cobwebs for the rich and chains of steel for the poor.” The flier contained the email for a local anarchist group that was a rally co-sponsor.

Maybe she has outgrown this moonbattery. I sure wouldn’t risk putting her in the Senate though.

Adwoa Lewis Joins Hate Hoax List

Adwoa Lewis tells a terrifying tale of living as a Woman of Color on Long Island in the Age of Trump. According to a written statement she gave police, she was driving home earlier this month when she was confronted by teenagers who shouted “Trump 2016!” (yes, 2016) and said that she doesn’t belong here.

She further claimed she parked her car in front of her house, and when she woke up, she found a slashed tire and a note on her car that stated, “Go home,” according to police.

You probably saw this part coming:

An investigation into the alleged incident revealed Lewis had fabricated the story and no such altercation took place.

Police said Lewis later admitted she wrote the note and placed it on her car.

More surprisingly, she now faces charges for her stunt. Police must be getting sick of chasing phantom thought criminals.

Quick Primer on South Africa

The tragedy unfolding in South Africa is relevant to all of us because it indicates the fate of the West in general if political and demographic trends continue. However, few people in the USA have any understanding of South Africa and its history other than the narrative the liberal media hammered through people’s heads during its campaign to bring down Apartheid. That narrative consists of angelic noble savages heroically overcoming oppression by evil racist white people with the help of good-white progressives in other countries. sponsor offers a more accurate summary of the story of South Africa.

An important point is made that the struggle that ended in the collapse of Apartheid and the rise to power of the ANC was not strictly black versus white; it was a victory for communism and terrorism over those trying to maintain a civil society.

The ANC’s closest ally was the South African Communist Party. Indeed, Nelson Mandela, the face of anti-apartheid resistance, was not only a member of the SACP, he served on its Central Committee, something he denied for decades. The SACP has never to this day contested its own candidates in South Africa, instead fielding their people on ANC slates.

What’s more, the SACP partnered with the ANC in forming Umkhonto we Sizwe (“Spear of the Nation”), the paramilitary wing of the anti-apartheid movement.

The average person on the street likely thinks that Nelson Mandela was imprisoned simply for being black or opposing apartheid. In fact, he was imprisoned for a bombing campaign carried out by Umkhonto we Sizwe, of which he was the head. In fact, Nelson Mandela was convicted of 193 acts of terrorism. He was offered his freedom multiple times on the simple condition that he condemn terrorist attacks against the apartheid regime. He refused every time.

Although prominent in the pantheon of liberal do-gooders’ saints, Mandela was a terrorist. His wife openly boasted of the ANC’s horrifically inhumane tactic of necklacing those accused of collaborating with whites.

We were promised that turning over an advanced First World country to black rule would result in multicultural bliss. It didn’t. Blacks there resent whites for all the usual reasons. Examples are given of how this resentment is expressed in the rainbow utopia.

In 2012, a 12-year-old boy was drowned in boiling water after watching both his parents murdered and his mother raped.
A 56-year-old grandmother was gang raped during a robbery netting approximately $2,000.
• Five men sexually assaulted a woman in front of her 5-year-old son over the course of an hour and a half.
Over the course of six hours, a woman was tortured by having her skin cut off, raped and had her feet power drilled.
• A 66-year-old man was beaten to death in front of his wife. She escaped being gang raped by saying that she had HIV.
• Bedridden Alice Lotter, 76, and her daughter Helen, 57 were tortured to death over several hours, including by being stabbed in the genitals with a broken glass bottle. One had one of her breasts removed while still alive. “Kill the Boer” was painted on the wall in their blood.
Knowledge Mandlazi went on a killing spree in 2014, murdering five whites and stating that “My hate for white people made me rob and kill.” He held up his middle finger to surviving victims in the courtroom.

Liberal ideology notwithstanding, there is nothing noble about savagery.

Little help can be expected from the government:

• Velaphi Khumalo, a government official, stated on Facebook in 2016: “White people in South Africa deserve to be hacked and killed like Jews.”
• Ekurhuleni EFF Leader Mampuru Mampuru posted on Facebook in 2018: “We need to unite as black People, there are less than 5 million whites in South Africa vs 45 million of us. We can kill all this white within two weeks.”
• Major M.V Mohlala, a senior official in the South African National Defense Forces, said of the murder of a 76-year-old white professor: “It is your turn now, white people… [he] should have had his eyes and tongue cut out so that the faces of his attackers would be the last thing he sees.” He received a mere warning of future disciplinary action.
• The EFF’s national leader Julius Malema stated in 2018: “Go after a white Man… We are cutting the throat of whiteness.”

The fanatical EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) is a minority party, but appears to be driving the agenda by pushing the ANC deeper into radicalism. Already the constitution is being amended to explicitly allow confiscating white property without compensation.

Seventy-one percent of children live in households where no one is employed. Fewer work than receive welfare. Democracy under these circumstances is a dysfunctional form of slavery. The state is failing. The straightforward communism that Apartheid defended against is only a step away.
