Updates

Let's update a few recent issues.

● There are a couple of interesting updates to the #metoo movement:
(1) Kevin Spacey, whose crimes against, uh, gay boys were so horrific that the #metoo movement got him scrubbed from a film and all of his scenes re-shot by Christopher Plummer, will be appearing in a new movie -- Billionaire Boys Club. Just like Jeffery Tambor, it seems that even those found guilty and given a life sentence are being forgiven now.

(2) "Actress" (cosplay) Chloe Dykstra made news a week or so ago by accusing her former boyfriend, fellow actor Chris Hardwick of abusing her. Guilty!! Right? Wrong. Hardwick denied the claims and now has produced texts showing that he dumped her for cheating on him and she begged him to take her back. He refused... right before she made her big public claim of abuse. Said differently, she lied. Several false rapes recently too. All of this flies flat in the face of the "women must always be believed" argument the #metoo movement made.

(3) Scott Baio, who was accused of sexual assault on a minor (co-star Nicole Eggert) right as he criticized the #metoo movement, has been cleared by an LA prosecutor. They cited the statute of limitation, but they knew that problem going in. My guess is that the evidence showed contrary behavior on her part.

(4) Of all the women who are going to make this Finally the Year of the Woman For Real This Time, only two have connections to the #metoo movement. That's out of what? 50,000 candidates nationwide? To sum that up in a word, think "irrelevance."
I see all of this as more proof not only that the #metoo movement is dead, but now it looks like its few victories were temporary. Maybe they should have worn pussy hats?

● Liberal Starbucks has announced that they missed their sales projections. Huh. I can't imagine why. I have no proof connecting this to their stupid Racism Day Virtue Signalling Marketing Plan, but I suspect that's cost them people from both sides -- those who want to believe that Starbucks is racist, as the company itself claimed, and those who don't want to deal with a company that goes all Clockwork Orange on its employees over an imagined race issue.

● Two thoughts on the immigrant thing. First, this has become a virtue signaling cheap shot and defending it is untenable. The problem is that rather than either (1) racing to the front and leading the charge against this while finding ways to blame the Democrats, or (2) hiding this by demanding a committee to investigate it, the GOP has done what they always do: self-righteously shoot their own. The Bush family in particular excels at throwing their own side under the bus. (As an aside, Trump's supporters need to STFU too about this. This is a freebie for everyone to oppose. Publicly fighting it only makes it worse.)

My second thought: How out of touch with reality are leftists (and elitist Washington types) to compare the separation of children from criminals and people who are not actually their parents to the Holocaust. This lack of perspective is shocking to me. It calls into question, in my mind, whether they actually understand what the Holocaust was. Do they not understand the difference between putting a child in a room full of children without their "parents", and systematically torturing, murdering and performing horrific experiments on human beings just because of their race? It's no wonder the left has raised a generation of snowflakes if they can't make that distinction.

● Finally, Kathy Griffin has decided that she has been punished enough and she declared herself forgiven. She then immediately posting vilely sexist comments against the First Lady. So did Samantha Bee and Michelle Wolf. Each got burned and came back swinging with more -ism. Why are liberals such innate sexist, racist, hateful trash? Is it a mental defect on their parts? Probably. Their brains don't seem to process basic logic and they seem to think their hate is endearing. We should probably think about locking them all up.

Weekend Review

Some thoughts from the weekend.

● Do you know why I hate soccer fans? They're hateful assh*les. Pure and simple. Go read any of the stories about the World Cup and you will see repeated shots at the intelligence, class and sophistication of people who don't like soccer. To these people, liking soccer is like a litmus test of who is a genuine human being and who is a troglodyte. They are also awash in foreign envy, political correctness, and obnoxious martyrdom. Moreover any critical comment about any aspect of soccer is met with just a full-on blast about how idiotic, hillybillyish and typical American the commenter must be. America bad... and backwards. Soccer chick and lesbian-spouse abuser Hope Solo whined that the US doesn't "deserve" to host the World Cup. I guess we're bad people. Former team captain Landon Donovan (in a post sponsored by fraud-machine Wells Fargo) told us that we should support Mexico because of how bad we Americans are to Mexicans. F-you. It's like listening to liberal comedians smear the Trumps.

● Speaking of Trump, a Pittsburgh paper just fired their political cartoonist and he's all upset about it. He went to the New York Times and wrote a whiny article claiming that he was fired for having anti-Trump views. Of course, the anti-Trumps are lapping this up. According to the editor, however, the problem was that this guy was obsessed. All he wanted to do was anti-Trump cartoons and they were angry rather than funny or clever. This is rather easy to see actually, as the anti-Trumps I've encountered fit this pattern -- irrational, all-consuming hate with zero sense of judgment or rationality left. Interestingly, the cartoonist countered that he didn't only do Trump cartoons, that he tried to do whatever was topical, but "Trump's outrages seemed to dominate events every day." Yeah, that sounds like an anti-Trump.

● The latest anti-Trump fake outrage was that Ivanka (who has been vilely slammed almost every day by female comedians) dared to wish her father a happy Father's Day when the evil Trump is separating the children of illegals from the illegals... just like Hitler!!! (Not kidding, a former CIA head actually made the comparison). Forget that this is an Obama policy.

● I had to chuckle at an article on this football site that I follow for whatever reason. The owner is an idiot leftist and a failed lawyer who likes to give legal advice, which actually is disastrously wrong time and again. He's one of these guys who has been trying to destroy football for some time, pimping the concussion issues, tearing into the NFL for not being infallible, and finding racism and sexism everywhere. This weekend, he pondered why the public doesn't support the players when they hold out for more money. Why oh why?!

After ignoring all the real reasons, he focused on two things. First, it turns out that we just don't understand that these millionaires aren't as rich as we think they are... boo hoo. So we're wrongly attacking them because we view them as rich. Ironically, in making this argument accusing us of jealousy, he implied a half-dozen times that the people they are fighting are evil billionaires whom we should hate because they're rich. Try parsing that in your brain. The second point he made is that "it would be ridiculous not to see the racial angle here." See, apparently, we poo' white folk don't like them darkies making more money than we ever will. So we hate the players because they are black and they make money. Forget the fact that blacks and Hispanics oppose holdouts just as much as whites. Forget the fact that whites don't support holdouts by white players any more than holdouts by blacks. Forget the fact that we honkeys don't seem to take any joy in holdouts against the Jaguars, who are owned by a Pakistani man. But you know... racism. If a liberal doesn't like something, it's racism. What a load.

● Interesting discovery this weekend. Have you heard of the Stanford Prison experiment? This was a psychology experiment conducted in the 1960s in which Stanford students were recruited to be guards and prisoners in an elaborate experiment meant to replicate prison. Shockingly, the kids playing the guards became monsters and abused the other students. This supposedly showed that people will always abuse power. It became one of those seminal intellectual cornerstones of the Boomer generation and their hatred of society's institutions.

Well... this weekend, after extensive study, it was revealed that the whole thing was apparently faked. All the abuse, the reaction to it, even a guy who seemed to go insane all faked it. They were told to act this way. What does this mean? It means that an underpinning of the Boomer belief system turns out to be utter BS. Imagine that.

And do you know what? It's not alone. The famous Kinsey study that found that 10% of the public is gay and that pretty much everyone was a sexual super-freak -- another underpinning of the Boomer attack on traditional society -- was faked too. Kinsey did his work using convicts and mental patients, not normal people. So his number are completely false.

It's interesting how often iconic liberal moments turn out too be manufactured. That famous image of the soldier shot in the Spanish Civil War -- the one where he falls backwards and loses his rifle -- that was admitted about ten years ago to have been staged. Little by little all the things liberals have based their world on are proving to be false. Will it matter to them? Hardly. Just as they don't care that Trump's evil immigration policies were started under Obama, they won't care if their beliefs are founded upon utter fantasy and deception. But it is interesting.

North Korea Thoughts

I have some thoughts on the North Korea situation. These aren't necessarily fully developed, but I think they are worth sharing. Please add your own in the comments. I'd like to hear your impressions.

● I think this "deal" happened because Trump scared North Korea. Kim really thought Trump was going to take him out.

● I think this is a really good deal actually. North Korea Kim agreed in principle to denuclearization -- something he never even hinted at accepting before. Don't underestimate that. There's nothing concrete, but I this is a huge first step from zero to "we agree we will eventually give 100%." In exchange, we agreed to stop military exercised with the South. But honestly, the South can handle itself now and we work so closely with them that specific exercises won't be needed for some time. We did not give up sanctions or anything else that I can tell. We also gave security assurances, but that would always be needed. It's also a freebie because we can always change our minds if circumstances change.

This deal reminds me of the types of deals I used to see between companies like Lockheed and Boeing. Tentative statements of intent by their CEOs that are meant to lay the ground work for the lower-level managers to put aside their war-like views and work together on something. It's a first step in cooperation, and since North Korea and the US have no relationship at all except a hostile one, I see it as a necessary step for laying the foundation for the next step. Basically, a relationship was created today, and it has an agreed upon goal. That's significant.

● Trump has definitely tossed the ball into Kim's court. We gave up nothing really and left all the work for Kim to do. Trump even said as much when he said that he trusts Kim, but might change his mind in six months. Through that, he basically declared: "We gave Kim a to-do list and we'll see if he does it. For now, I'm willing to trust him." That reminds me of Reagan's "trust by verify" sentiment. It's smart. It keeps the pressure up. It allows a quick change of posture.

By comparison, in the awful Iran deal, Obama gave up sanctions and agreed to walk away and stop bothering Iran in exchange for Iran not doing anything bad for a few years. That's an example of how not to make a deal. It tied our hands for nothing. It gave Iran what it wanted. It never established any sort of relationship from which to work. This Korea deal is much, much smarter.

● The left is thankful nothing more concrete resulted from the summit. They clearly want it to fail because they don't want Trump getting credit for anything good. Obama's Susan Rice even tried to defuse any sort of deal by whining that Korea just wasn't ready back them to reach a deal. Yeah, right. You make your own luck, Susan.

● The idiots are doing what they always do:
● Some are whining that Trump legitimized Kim by being nice to him, as if there would be any way to reach a deal with him by slapping him. When dealing with irrational people, from dictators to angry spouses, you always need to calm them down first... not agitate them.

● Some super hawks are saying this too, but that lacks a sense of reality. You can't treat someone as if your boot is on their throat unless it is.

● Others are upset that Trump didn't address human rights. Again, a lack of priorities. The goal here is to change the very nature of the regime. If that happens, human rights follow. Worrying about human rights loses the focus on what the real goal is.
● I suspect that North Korea may use this deal as a way to shift out from under China's wing. There is an opening at least to eventually align themselves with the west, and North Korea doesn't seem to like/trust China much... so maybe.

● Am I hopeful? Surprisingly, yes. Kim seems interested in change and Trump had made it easy for him. Will he do it? Not sure, but all the signs are there if you look. And Trump isn't the kind of guy to treat this like a finished matter either, so I think it will be driven home eventually.

Buttheads

The headlines are really disturbing today. Lots of, uh, butt stuff.

● Louis Farrakahn is ranting about "Jewish Power" and "anal sex." Seriously. Sounds like somebody went to the wrong bath house.

● Apparently, they now have a saliva test to determine prostate cancer. Really? Yuck. Who the hell is going to perform that test? Tastes like cancer to me! Keep your saliva off my prostate! Maybe that's why Farrakahn is upset?

● A driver with road rage apparently defecated on someone. Or did he? Maybe he was just trying to get a prostate examine?

● Either Canada or Oregon has launch missiles at Washington state. My money is or Oregon. Meth makes you do crazy things.

● The left is ecstatic today that Trump's Korea summit didn't end the Korean issue. They can't take much more success for Trump.

● Rose McGowan is warning us not to let Anthony Bordain's suicide split us apart and she's issued a call for unity. Huh. I didn't know anyone had taken sides. Can't the left do anything without fighting about it?

● Ariana Venti Grande (that's a Starbucks joke) is engaged. I'm sure that will last. Anyways, to let him know what he would be getting into, Ariana just posed without makeup on the cover of some magazine. Here is her picture. That's her on the left and without makeup on the right:

● Diane Feinstein now says she had no idea how immigrant children were treated under Obama. She was in Austria durink ze var too.

● Finally, the NBA seems to be full of nasty little b*tches who gossip and backstab each other. Wow. They've spent the past week all whining about being the best but its so unfair that like nobody notices them because of like stuhhff, "throwing shade" at each other and whining that so and so better shut up, whining about each other's contracts, telling us who shouldn't be allowed to play for whom, and even making rap songs insulting each other. Unbelievable. It's like my youngest daughter's circle of frienemies in fifth grade.

F*ck Trump!!

Robert de Niro, a one-time decent if limited actor, gave a speech at the Tony Awards that mainly consisted of him yelling "F*ck Trump!" twice. How classy! How erudite! How telling. Telling? Yes. Let's identify what Robert is apparently upset about...

F*ck Trump! For the lowest black unemployment on record! Get back on welfare you lazy bastards.

F*ck Trump! For a record high stock market! Profits are evil!

F*ck Trump! For a 3.9% unemployment rate, lower than at any time under Obama!

F*ck Trump! For deporting fewer people than Obama!

F*ck Trump! For immigrant families having been split up under Obama! But I saw a picture and everyone was outraged?!

F*ck Trump! For 3% economic growth, something liberals thought was only possible under emerging economies... or Republican administrations. F*ck him too for booming corporate capital equipment spending and rising wages!

F*ck Trump! For household net worth soaring almost to $100 trillion, and an 8.8% rise in home values! People get confused when they have too much money!

F*ck Trump! For the lowest Hispanic unemployment on record. Who will pick my melons now?

F*ck Trump! For pardoning Alice Johnson, the 63-year-old black female first-time non-violent drug offender who has served 21 years of a life sentence

F*ck Trump! For beating ISIS!

F*ck Trump! For possibly ending the North Korean scourge without violence!

F*ck Trump! For creating three million new jobs including 300,000 manufacturing jobs. Those aren't real jobs like actors!

F*ck Trump! For getting female unemployment to a 65 year low. Women need time to whine about being raped, not jobs!

F*ck Trump! For getting three million people off of food stamps. How will they eat now?

F*ck Trump! For not rounding up gays or re-instituting slavery as we expected! I hate looking stupid!

F*ck Trump! For making gun control proposals. He's trying to eliminate our issues!

F*ck Trump! For actually proposing to cut all trade barriers and subsidies at the G-7 meeting. The man doesn't understand free trade!

F*ck Trump! For actually imposing tariffs to help middle class white guys like we always said we wanted!

F*ck Trump! For cheap oil! Only the rich should be able to travel.

F*ck Trump! For taxing rich people! How dare he cut Alabama's subsidy to New York and California!

F*ck Trump! For carbon emissions falling 1.2%! He doesn't really care!

F*ck Trump! For historically low inflation!

F*ck Trump! Most of all for saying crazy things to me through the fillings in my teeth. Black flag! Black flag! Racism! Racism!!

These are the things Robert hates.

Harvey Weinstein Might Beat The Rap

Mira Sorvino wants Harvey Weinstein to plead guilty. I’ll bet she does. Here’s why: I think he can beat the rap. In fact, here’s how I would do it if I was appointed his lawyer...

First, I’d move to get all the rapes tried together, or at least to be allowed to discuss them all. That sounds suicidal, doesn’t it? Maybe not. As Stalin said, one death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic. It’s also a lot harder to believe when you’re talking about rich and powerful victims who benefited from their own rapes.

So here is my opening. I would begin with the story of trendyness in Hollywood:
Hollywood is a place of trends. When something becomes hip, everyone who is anyone needs to be seen doing it. Being a victim in one form or another has been a trend many times. What’s more, being a victim can be excellent public relations when you find yourself in trouble.

This past year, it became gauche to be a victim of sexual assault. Why? Because being a victim of sexual assault is the perfect insulation for a lot of flaws. Get seen in a magazine showing off your wealth? Better make yourself a victim. Get named as one of the nastiest actresses to work with in Hollywood? Make yourself a victim. No one will question about that lousy tip you left or the way you smacked that makeup artist when the press is going on about you being victimized. Nasty to your kids? Ugly divorce? Career dried up? Too old to get cast? Can’t get headlines to save your life? Make yourself a victim. It’s no coincidence that so many actors reveal their childhood abuse stories after getting a few too many bad headlines.

What does this have to do with our case?

Well, if the prosecution is to be believed, starting more than 20 years ago, Harvey went on a raping spree that lasted until only a few months ago. In that time, he raped nearly 200 of the most powerful, prominent, outspoken women in Hollywood. Women, by the way, who would work with him year after year on film after film. Women who visited his house, thanked him at awards shows, and went to his parties after their supposed rapes. Women who said nothing even as 199 other women were supposedly raped. Does that make sense to you? It shouldn’t.

But the allegations have been made, so what are we to make of these allegation?

Let’s start with how they arose. About a year ago, Harvey’s name was brought up by a woman whose case we’ll talk about more specifically later. This woman was dogged and determined to have Harvey prosecuted and it became clear that names of all the women with whom Harvey had slept over the years would come out... women whose careers he made and who were now happily married.

Did Harvey sleep with these women? Yes. He slept with any woman he could. Was that right or wrong? It doesn’t make him a nice person, that’s for sure, but it doesn’t make him a rapist either. Harvey slept with each of these women who now accuses him. Each time, the sex was consensual. Each time, he went on to happily cast his lovers in his films. Even after they stopped sleeping together, he helped to build their careers.

At the time, it must have seemed like a miracle for these women to have found a way to stardom. But now it would be an embarrassment if it was revealed that they had slept their way to the top through Harvey. Fortunately, they had a golden ticket to avoid this embarrassment. As I said, about a year ago, it became the in thing for actresses everywhere to declare that they had been victims of sexual assault and abuse and rape.

All they needed to do was convert the deeds they did so willingly twenty years prior and turned those into rapes. Suddenly, they are the victims. Bad publicity... marital strife... embarrassment avoided. And that is why we’re here today.

... unless you believe that these powerful, vocal, wealthy women each chose to remain silent about the man who raped them and let him go on to do it to another 199 women.
After this, I would first take on the one or two cases that are provably fake – the opportunists – by showing they weren’t even in town when the rape happened or that their details are provably false. I would use that to cast an atmosphere of distrust for the evidence. Then I would point out the utter lack of physical evidence, i.e. rape kits. Finally, I would spend as much time as I could flooding the jury with cards, letters, thank you speeches, etc. showing these women saying good things about Harvey.

What do you think? Does he stand a chance?

Tuesday's Primaries

Let’s talk about the election. Last night was actually a little instructive, though not too much. To best discuss this though, let’s do it by debunking the liberal analysis of the election, shall we?

Clear Blue Sailing In California

The Democrats avoided the thing they had worried about the most in California last night. They had been worried about being locked out of four races because vote spreading might have resulted in two Republicans advancing from the “Jungle Primary.” Since that didn’t happen, most liberal pundits today are claiming that things are on track for the Democrats to take those seats and, therefore, get closer to retaking the House.

Here’s the thing. The Republicans in each of those races scored more than 50% of the votes. So the Republican is going to win. And statements like this from Politico: “The Republican came in first, but the next four candidates were Democrats,” are ludicrous wishful thinking. The next thousand candidates could have been Democrats, but it doesn’t change the fact that all together they don’t come near 50%.

California Dreaming

As an aside, in California, the Republicans avoided being shutdown in the Governor’s race. The thinking is that this may help bolster Republican turnout, but I actually think it’s the reverse – it will depress Democratic turnout. Everyone knows that the Republican can’t win. So GOP voters have no reason to care even though they have a candidate. So I don’t see how it spurs GOP turnout.

Where this race matters is that it robs the Democrats of a choice. If it had been two Democrats, they could have chosen between liberal and super-liberal, but now they get liberal. And since they know Newsome can’t lose, they have no reason to show up either. So the effect down ticket, I suspect, will be decreased Democratic turnout.

The Year Of The Woman (redux)

We are apparently in the Year of the Woman... the twentieth in the last twenty years by my count. This time we really mean it though. Why, there’s a fat shamed Miss America, a chick from Idaho (which doesn’t have women), a former navy pilot, and some other chicks too. This is all because of #metoo!!

Yeah. About that. Look, for as long as I can remember, feminists in the media have been celebrating the pending Year of the Woman. There’s always some form of #metoo reason and a handful of women who end up candidates and the feminists predict a dramatic change in the number of women in the House/Senate/Presidency. It never happens. And it won’t happen this year either. Most of these women won the Democratic nomination in solidly Republican districts. Barring something unusual, that means they will lose.

Burn Bernie Burn, Dipsh*t Inferno

Oh praise the maker, Bernie’s revolution is finally dying. In a couple races in Iowa and a couple in New Jersey, Bernie’s people got whacked. The revolution is dead. The Democrats are saved from going crazy(er)!

Not so fast. The problem with Bernie’s people has never been that they might win seats and run against Republicans. The Democratic Party is too well controlled to let that happen anywhere but the most lunatic districts. The problem is that Bernie’s people knock over the board when they don’t win. Wiping out Bernie people will depress Democratic turnout, especially among the fickle young, and could well result in other forms of unpleasantness, e.g. third party runs, protests, etc.

New Jersey Voters Send Message to Corrupt Sen. Menendez

Yep, he only got 60% of the vote against an unknown candidate. Is he on the hot seat come election time? Hardly. New Jersey doesn’t swing that way.

Trump People Are Animals

Finally, they are pointing to a Republican Congresswoman in Alabama who criticized Trump has now been forced into a runoff as proof that Trump voters are nuts. This is seen as further proof that Trump supporters supposedly are obsessed with him. I see the truth as rather different. First, the Trump obsession is coming from the anti-Trumps who can’t stop talking about him as if they were some jilted lover. What I think the voters are doing here is punishing disloyalty in general, not defending Trump. From what I am seeing, people are sick of a certain group of conservatives/moderate GOPers/establishment types constantly joining the left in their idiotic attacks on Trump. This was the same thing Reagan faced until 1984 and it gets really old fast. Whether you like Trump or not – and for the record I think he’s an ass – people do not approve of disloyalty... and disloyalty this has become rather than valid criticism.

What all of the above tells me is that (1) we’re still a fifty-fifty nation with a gerrymandered House and a Senate divided by red and blue states, (2) turn out will be typical in this cycle and neither side has much of an advantage, and (3) all politics remains local.

And Away We Go...

This truly remains a week for idiocy. Oh where to begin...

● Gretchen Carlson who once won the Miss America pageant (must have been an off year... a very off year) has taken over the Miss America organization and is apparently determined to destroy the thing. She's announced that the contestants will no longer be judged on their outward beauty. Yep. From now on, they will be judged on their passion, their desire to do charity, and their inner beauty. Ha ha ha! Are you serious? Do you really think anybody wants to hear these airheads views on anything? Good luck with that. Naturally, this is being cheered on by feminists who never watched it in the first place. I'm betting this is its final year.

● The makers of James Bond have decided to cast Helena Bonham Carter as the next villain. Was Pee Wee Herman not available? Talk about a walking one-note cliche.

● The latest leftist BS is to attack the well-wishes and condolences of conservatives. For example, today Kathy Griffin attacked Ivanka Trump for not really caring about the death of Kate Spade. That's funny coming from someone who uses tragedies to score political points... like most liberals.

● Speaking of the death of Kate Spade. She killed herself today. Sad. Why I mention this though is how the leftist vultures are circling. First, you have the sh*ts who know that she killed herself because money doesn't bring happiness. Money had nothing to do with it. Then you have the sh*ts who know she killed herself because she was only worth $300 million and if she had waited to sell her company, she would have been worth $2.4 billion. Hardly. Then you have the sh*ts who are judging the twitter condolences and attacking those who don't say enough in their moronic opinions. Today's biggest victim was Kenneth Cole who was presented as saying "She alone didn't change the handbag world," which sounds like a slap right? Except, what he said was: "'I believed that I could, so I did.' She alone didn't change the handbag world but she was an inspiring accessory. #KateSpade #RIP." That's actually a very pretty tribute, unless you feel that a tribute needs to be laughably over-the-top, i.e. insincere, to be acceptable. Whose f***ing business is it anyways to judge other people's condolences? Ironically, each of these idiots who judged her also told us that we can't judge people with depression. Typical liberals... so judgmental.

● I'm laughing about the articles about California's primary. For those who haven't paid attention, there are several races in heavily Democratic districts where two Republicans may end up running for the office without a Democrat in the race. This is because California now has a system where the top two vote getters advance and the Democrats have so many candidates they may split up the vote too small to advance. As if that wasn't funny enough, reading the articles, the various authors seem baffled how this could have happened and none of them seem to realize that it was the Democrats who put this system into place in the hopes of wiping out the GOP in the primary phases. Now it's blowing up on them and their zombies seem shocked as to who set up this sytem and why. Ha ha.

Don't Do It!

Basketball star Ben Simmons is apparently dating Kendall Jenner. Dude... don't do it!! Trust me on this, Ben. The Jenner/Kardashian family are modern day sirens, luring men to their dooms. They will destroy you! If you don't believe me, let's review some history:

1. Robert Kardashian... died at 59 after marrying momma Kris. He got off easy.

2. Bruce Jenner... turned into woman after marrying momma Kris. Seriously, he went from famous runner to chick.

3. Lamar Odom... A once famous Basketball player, he ended up in a drug induced coma in a Nevada brothel after overdosing on cocaine and viagra after marrying (and divorcing) Khloe K.

4. Kanye West... Famous rapper turned fruitcake after marrying Kim Kardashian. This guy is as unstable as Kim's butt in an earthquake.

5. Tyga... rapper who dated Kylie Jenner. He ended up having a daughter with Blac Chyna, who then married Rob Kardashian, making Tyga's son the half-brother to his own niece. Tyga is apparently broke as well and is being pursue by creditors in court.

6. Khris Humphries. Another basketball player who was only married to Kim K. for 72 days. His basketball game tanked, averaging less than half the points as before and eventually got benched. The annulment, alleging fraud on her part, probably saved his life.

7. Scott Disick... Dated Kourtney K. Got her pregnant three times. In and out of rehab ever since.

Dude. You don't stand a chance. What are you thinking? Think about this. The GM who hired you and put Philly back on the map got into a social media scandal a few days before your relationship was discovered by the public. That was a warning. Run, Ben, run!

The World Is Nuts

Have you ever thought the world might have gone nuts when we weren't looking?

I watch a lot of old movies at times. It's fascinating to me how normal the people in those films are. They aren't beating each other up on airplanes. Nobody's urinating on anybody. Nobody's trying to run over cops or shooting cops with their own guns. There are no Arabs trying to kill the West, one civilian at a time. They aren't sending out hateful tweets... or sending out hatefuler tweets in response to condemn the hate. Jimmy Kimmel was attacked today for suggesting that Rosanne Barr needs compassion and help. BOO! BOO! Kill the monster! I guess that once someone says something the left doesn't like, they must die. That's very WWII of them.

The politicians in older films actually stood for something, not just the destruction of their opponents. John McCain was played by the sniveling sidekick of the villain in films... no one thought of that guy as a hero. Hillary Clinton wore a black hat in the Wizard of Oz. Newspapers had news, not just clickbait. No one would have invited Kim Buttockdashian to the White House, except through the back door (no pun intended). They weren't staffed by idiots either who thought their own weepy wishes constituted news. Authorities in Denver shut down a kid's lemonade stand for lack of a permit, but protect people who broke into this country illegally.

Did you know that Serena Williams is a hero for dressing like the Incredibles at the French Open Yep. That's truly heroic, like fighting the Medusa, stopping the Persians, standing up to the Catholic Church, and ending the Holocaust.

Well, it doesn't matter. The truth is that most people are still normal and good. All of the above is the culture of our media/political elite. This is the society they want. Not us.

Do you want to know the real America? I was in the drive-through at my bank the other day when a guy in his 50's fell out of his car. Not sure what happened, but he parked, opened the door and fell to the ground. Everyone in the parking lot rushed over to help him... everyone. The school teacher in Indian risked his life to save his students. He did it because he wanted to protect them. We had a woman whose house burned down locally, and people donated food, clothing and furniture to help her. There have been Biblical-quality floods in Maryland, and people have risked their lives to help each other. Everywhere you look, people do the right thing, help each other out, live by good values, and do their best to make the world better. That's who the human race really is, not the sewer dwellers you see on television.

Some Thoughts

● There is this "article" making the rounds on various "news" sites which identifies the ten best horror movies by telling you which horror movies scare people so much that they turn them off halfway through on Netflix. Uh... that's not why people are turning them off. Think about it. If people turned off comedies halfway through, would it be because they are just too funny? Dramas too dramatic? Nope. They're turning them off because they're crap.

● The anti-Trumps are losing their sh*t. CNN ran a story suggesting that Trump is running a child trafficking ring. The left is freaking out that Ivanka posted a sentimental photo of her and her child. How hateful do you need to be to have that upset you? Trump was a fool for promising to visit North Korea and then he was a fool for cancelling the meeting he never should have had. Now that it sounds like it wasn't really cancelled, he's a fool for not cancelling. Then Trump spoke about soldiers on Memorial Day and dared to say that the country is in great shape!!! //breaks down crying... You know what? I hear that if enough liberals kill themselves, Trump will resign. Give it a try.

● Starbucks is closing all day tomorrow so they can admit that their employees are racists. No surprise that this won't satisfy the race hustlers, who call it too little too late. I'm kind of hoping this is just the first domino in an implosion of this vile liberal company and their socialist management.

● I don't particularly like LeBron James, but wow is he an amazing player. This guy single-handedly beat the Celtics.

● Cheering for Vegas in the Stanley Cup, though the opening show was a little too much.

● Chelsea Clinton is acting like being a Trump supporter is a war crime. She would know, since her parents should be in jail for treason.

● Two more fights on planes. Good grief.

I Wish I Could Be A Liberal

A little poetry...

I wish I could be a liberal...
No facts no logic could stand in my way...
I could believe whatever I wanted...
Trust the herd, I'd always say...

I wish I could be a liberal...
Contradictions wouldn't matter...
Nor would what I say...
I could disown all my beliefs...
And yet stand on shifting principle every day...

I wish I could be a liberal...
With history on my side...
I'd be so f**cking smug...
And my hypocrisy sky high...

I wish I could be a liberal...
My world would be black and white...
Disagree with me and you're a bigot...
Because I am always right...

I wish I could be a liberal...
Nothing would ever be my fault...
My failures would be excused...
To challenge me would be assault...

I wish I could be a liberal...
Because my racism would be disarming...
My hatred would be justified...
My sexism would be charming...

I wish I could be a liberal...
I could demonize my opponents...
And whine about their response...
Destroy you for your vices...
Treat mine with nonchalance...

I wish I could be a liberal...
My tantrums would be truth to power...
My ignorance affirmed...
Your petty laws wouldn't apply to me...
My infallible goodness would be confirmed...

I wish I could be a liberal...
My actions wouldn't matter...
My intent would be what counts...
To doubt me would be racism...
Challenging me, to bullying would amount...

I wish I could be a liberal...
Life would be so easy and so numb...
I wish I could be a liberal...
But I. Just. Can't. Be. That. Dumb.

The Promise Of An Era of Broken Promises Is Broken

by tryanmax

With all the Trump/Russia conspiracy theories in the mainstream news, constant handwringing over which country will declare war on Trump, and general criticism of Trump’s bombastic, hyperbolic oratory, it amuses me that such conventional complaints as “broken promises” continue to be leveled at the president.

It becomes especially amusing when the chorus continues unabated while the US moves its Israel embassy to Jerusalem, fulfilling a promise every president of the last quarter century has made.

As I see it, this criticism comes mainly from three camps, with a few other varieties in between and at the margins.
● The person complaining is a wall-head. It won't matter if, at the end of eight years, unemployment is at 0.5%, the Democrat Party is in shambles, the race-divide is healed, Korea is reunified, Iran is led by a woman, and we're all puttering around the moon in self-driving Tesla-Xs. They won't be happy unless there's a border wall between the US and Mexico and that’s that.

● Trump promised X and the only way the person can conceive of X is by way of A. So, if Trump approaches X via B, that person counts it as a broken promise. You see this with how Trump has decided to address prescription drug prices. The critics all expected a price-fixing solution and had already published their rebukes. When Trump proposed something else, they pivoted to “broken promises!”

● The person is holding Trump responsible for obstacles that were essentially unforeseeable. The prime example comes from federal judges who ordered the administration to keep DACA running. Constitutionally, the orders are abominable. No sane person should count this as a broken promise but clearly not everyone is sane. (I somewhat arbitrarily include in this category people that are still holding Trump to his first 100 days, because it's equally idiotic.)
As I said, there are other forms of this complaint, some absolutely legitimate. For example, if the carried interest loophole is your obsession, then I can't argue that Trump hasn't let that one go. Trump also, like most presidents before him, promised to do things that can only be done by Congress. Myself, I tend to regard those as promises to try, but strictly speaking, he did break the sort of promises that have become customary for US Presidential candidates to make.

Then there are the "who cares?" broken promises. Trump said he'd release his tax returns after audit. He didn't. So what? He said he'd label China a currency manipulator. Instead he put a boot on their neck. He said he'd buy the Chinese president a McDonald's hamburger. Whatever.

This doesn't even touch on the added dimension that a lot of what reporters and pundits count as promises were never phrased as such by Trump. There's a tendency to count a lot of "I want to" and "we ought to" statements as iron-clad promises for the purposes of a take-down. As such, there’s a lot of disagreement from outlet to outlet as to which “promises” Trump has broken, and which ones he’s still working on.

Similarly, there’s the attempt to dismiss kept promises as things any other Republican would have done. But it’s not at all clear that any other Republican would have pulled out of the Paris climate accord, or ended DACA, or left the Iran deal, or even cut down the number of regulations on the books. Republicans past have habitually backed down on similar promises in response to much less outrage than Trump has withstood for keeping them.

I realize this all reads as Trump apologia, and it pretty well is. But seriously, go find any article about Trump's broken promises and let me know how far you get before your eyes glaze over.

In principle, no one should break promises or make ones they can't keep. But of the promises Trump made that can definitively be called broken, there's not a lot to get animated about. Unless you are really that concerned about the carried interest loophole.

That Was Dumb

The NFL has been struggling with this whole anthem protest for some time. Today, they issued a change in the rules which just makes everything so much worse. Here's what you need to know.

1. Certain leftist NFL players chose to protest by kneeling during the national anthem and insulting average Americans. This infuriated audiences.

2. The NFL had no way to punish these guys because their rules did not include a requirement that players stand.

3. With players kneeling and the NFL trying to get them to stop without actually making them stop, this became a national issue with millions of fans expressing extreme outrage with the disloyal players and the hapless, weak-kneed NFL response.

4. The leftist media and the players tried damage control by claiming they weren't really protesting the military or the anthem, just the racist country and the murderous cops we employ to keep these poor millionaire bastards in their place. No sale with the public.

5. The NFL dithered all off-season on what to do about this. They gave bribes money to the leftist causes of these leftist players. They paid for ads proclaiming their supposed heroism. They begged these guys not to keep kneeling. Surprise, none of that worked. Then they decided to get tough, so they refused to hire Colin Kapernick or Eric Reid, two leaders of whom they made an example. That actually seemed to be working.

6. Now they've created a new rule that forbids "disrespect" for the anthem. Good grief. This new rule is a mess. What exactly is "disrespect"? It's not defined. Hence, this rule will have two effects.

First, it will require the referees to decide what is or isn't disrespect every time something happens. The NFL has been trying to avoid the politics of this since it began. They refused to take sides and punish either the players or go against the public. They refused to pass rules forbidding the protests to continue -- indeed, they tried to join and sanitize the protests. And yet, with this rule, they will now be in the business of deciding what is and what is not disrespect week after week, incident after incident. Oh joy. Imagine week after week of referees making contradictory, nonsense decision. That will keep this issue alive for ever, and will give the leftist media something to debate and opine about every week... the exact opposite of what the NFL wants. And when its decisions support the protestors, the NFL will reopen the wound it's trying to close with the public.

Secondly, this rule will encourage the players to keep testing the limits of what constitutes disrespect. It's practically an invitation for the protests to continue forever. Stupid.

This is really the worst possible rule for what the NFL wants. This will keep this issue alive forever. It will put the NFL on the wrong side of its audience repeatedly. It will make the NFL look hapless and afraid and will let them be used by these leftist trolls week after week.

Very stupid.

What A Depressing World

And man was cast out of the Garden of Eden because he was kind of a turd...

● Each of the following happened: A old guy on Frontier Airlines punched a dog and then a pregnant woman. The pregnant woman's thug boyfriend went wild and beat up the old guy, even continuing the fight when they got off the plane. Why weren't they arrested? Another Frontier customer urinated on the back of the seat in front of him. And last week, a naked man ran up and down the aisle of an airplane. WTF?

● A local NAACP leader/minister is the latest to be caught by Cop-Cam. He claimed he was pulled over and threatened... asked why he was in an expensive car and wealthy neighborhood... threatened with arrest... accused of being a drug dealer. Other civil rights leaders freaked out. One stormed down to the station to demand to see the camera footage. Whoops. None of it happened. Total lie. Said one of the other Civil Rights leaders, "I don't know why he did this? This set us back 100 years."

● A bike lane in Seattle cost $12 million a mile... because there weren't any better uses for the money.

● If you want to know what our politics has come to, this headline says it all: Armed Porn Star Shoots Up President's Golf Club.

● In their zeal to hate Trump, the Democrats have now defended the ultra-violent gang MS-13. They are decrying Trump for denying their "humanity" when he called them animals. This is perhaps the most murderous, brutal gang in the world. Good call Democrats. Maybe they should stay at your homes?

● Venezuela is continuing its experiment with societal suicide. They just re-elected the guy who has driven their economy to the point of having no food or medicine. I'll be curious what he does for an encore and when they finally turn to cannibalism.

Where in the World is the US Embassy?

by tryanmax

So, I did something crazy the other day. Sit down for this: I made a map. No big deal, right? Maybe it is.

I was trying to follow the stories about the US Embassy in Israel moving from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and the protests supposedly in response. Many stories framed the events as though the Trumps and Israelis were laughing and cavorting while poor Palestinians were being slaughtered just next door.
I have a passing familiarity with the geography of the area, but I wanted to lay it all out in front of myself. What I ended up seeing was so comically at odds with news reports linking the violence to the embassy that I just had to share.

I posted it on Twitter with the caption: “Just because not everyone seems to know this.” That’s it.
As they say on Twitter dot com, RIP my mentions.

For some context, for me a typical tweet that isn't a reply to someone gets about one response. A dozen retweets and replies is a successful tweet. The lifespan for any given tweet is typically only a few minutes. The above post received 600+ retweets and 1250+ likes over 36 hours and is still going. That's well beyond my tiny reach of 700 followers at the time I posted it.

The really interesting part, though, is the replies. I've gotten dozens, mostly from strangers, which is again odd. Most are positive, complementing the map—I personally wish I’d picked better colors; it looks like an Imodium and Pepto cocktail—and thanking me for providing useful information. On the other hand, a handful have actually tried to "debunk" the map! I’ve gotten the predictable Trump/Jew/Israel hate, as well. Clearly, some people got their conceptions turned around and did not like it.

The White Minority Myth

I saw an interesting article the other day written by a conservative who tried to dispel the idea that America will soon become a "majority-minority nation." That is, a nation where minorities are in the majority. Unfortunately, he didn't make the case very well. So let me.

The Democrats have been betting on changing demographics making them the permanent majority party. In their view, minorities will soon take over the United States and then whites will be a minority. So if they get enough support from minorities, they will have an unbeatable racial bloc. Backing this up, demographers have predicted that the United States will become a majority-minority nation in 2016 2020 2049.

The guy who wrote the article I mentioned attacked this by noting that minorities don't vote in a bloc. Hence, he concluded, the prediction of a minority-majority nation won't happen. Clearly, he missed the point.

Here's the thing. There are problems with the numbers. Here's what the nation looks like as of 2016:
73% Whites
17% Hispanics
12.6% Blacks
5.2% Asian
3.1% mixed race
0.8% American Indian

111.7% total
Do you notice that we're 11.7% above 100%? There's a reason for that which I'll discuss in a minute. For now, consider this. According to the Census, Hispanics will rise to 28% of the population by 2050 and whites will fall to 60%. Blacks will rise 2%, Asians will rise 2% and mixed race individuals will rise 2%. That's an increase of 7% to 118%.

So let's take this apart.

First, as noted, according to the Census, Hispanics will rise to 28% of the population by 2050 and whites will fall to 60%. Let's assume that's true. Did you notice that still doesn't produce a minority-majority nation? Whites will still be 10% larger than every other group combined. So much for the scare mongering.

Taking this a step further, there's something wrong with the numbers, isn't there? How can the nation have 111.7% of racial groups now and 118% in the future? The answer lies in Hispanics. See that 17% figure for Hispanics in 2016? Well, it turns out that isn't really what you think of when someone says "Hispanic." It turns out that 11.3% of the 17% self-identifies as "white" and then adds Hispanic heritage. That's people like Tony Romo and Marco Rubio and millions of others who don't even speak Spanish. What the Census Bureau is doing is counting them as "whites" AND then again as Hispanics. If we count those only as whites, because that is what they are culturally, then ethnic Hispanics really are only 5.7% of the population today. So America really looks like this:
73% Whites
12.6% Blacks
5.3% Hispanics
5.2% Asian
3.1% mixed race
0.8% American Indian

100% total
What's more, when we project to 2050 using the Census Bureau's own numbers, we find that while 28% of the population will have Hispanic heritage, they are estimating that 15.2% of those will be whites. Hence, the future looks like this according to their numbers:
70.8% Whites
14.1% Blacks
12.8% Hispanics
7.7% Asian
5.4% mixed race

110.8% total
Take this at face value for the moment and you will see that there is no change of the minority-majority nation. That idea is only about 2% closer.

Moreover, you may have noticed that we're still 10.8% above 100%. This comes from double counting minorities who are also Hispanics and mixed-race. In other words, each of the minority groups will be slightly smaller than presented.

Now there's one more bit of data to consider. To get Hispanics to rise so high, the Census Bureau estimates a higher birthrate for Hispanics. It notes the following birth rates by race:
2.1 Hispanics
1.86 Whites plus white Hispanics
1.85 Blacks
1.76 Whites (without Hispanics)
1.6 Asians
1.2 American Indians
However, the Hispanic birth rate dropped by 26% from 1990 to 2007. It dropped by 14% from 2007 to 2010. It dropped by 36% from 2010 to 2014. If it drops another 17%, it will be equal to whites. These are not numbers that suggest Hispanics will ever reach 28% of the population by any stretch, especially as the primary source of Hispanic immigrants (Mexico) is undergoing a demographic shortage with a current (steadily falling) birth rate of 1.8. In fact, it sounds like Hispanics are going to peak in the next ten years.

As an aside, Asians actually outgrew Hispanics from 2007 to 2014.

All in all the idea of the minority-majority nation sounds like a pipe dream fed by past rates that no longer apply and a misunderstanding of the term "Hispanic" which didn't grasp that the majority of Hispanics in the US are basically whites.

Finally, let's add one little political piece. The Democrats are counting on all of these minorities to form a voting bloc. This is what that other guy was taking about. But that's not going to work. Not only will minorities be only 29% of the population, but it seems that somewhere between 20% and 33% of minorities will vote conservative. The assumption that you can build a majority voting block starting from 18% to 26% of the population is a very bad strategy.

Angry White Women

I had a fascinating thought today. While talking with Anthony about how blacks have lost their influence over the Democratic Party, I made the point that the Democrats have been taken over by teachers unions and professional women. Well, I had a slightly deeper thought. The Democrats have become the party of angry white women!

Think about this. Who runs the Democrats right now? Teacher's unions are the biggest, most-influential group. They are dominated by women, and boy are they pissed off. They're the last unions in the nation who really ever strike and they strike a lot. They're angry about money, lack of respect, and being judged on their job performance. They're super pissed that requirements are being imposed upon them and will whine about that endlessly. They hate parental interference too. They are bitter seethers who cling to their textbooks.

Who else? Professional women are the other big group. Certainly not all professional women are angry, but these are a specific subset who are deeply enraged. These professional women scream about glass ceilings, harassment, unfair work treatment, unsupportive husbands. Statistics tell us they are single -- either never married or divorced, they are childless and despise stay at home moms. Their issues include abortion because children ruin lives (//spits), demands for "equal" pay, and affirmative action. The #metoo garbage showed how they all think they've been harassed by every male around them too. That's a lot of hateful baggage right there.

What about the college girls who do the volunteer work? They all claim they've been raped. They whine about male privilege, mansplaining and even manspreading. When someone hates the way you sit and makes that a political issue, they are pretty f*cked up. They want to stifle free speech, institute guilt upon allegation for sex crimes, and man-free zones. They even define sex crimes as everything from genuine rape to "I don'know, I didn't like him". This is the witch trials set and they thrive on hate.

Finally, we come to professional feminists. These are the women who claim that all sex (with men) is rape, who note that the penis is shaped like a knife, and who espouse oppression theory. Most feminist leaders are lesbians (at one point, every director of NOW was a lesbian). As a general rule gay men just want to have fun, but lesbians are seething cauldrons of anti-male hate. Indeed, I have never felt more hate coming off a human being than watching lesbians deal with men. This is daddy issues on steroids projected onto all men. They are even one of the most likely groups (statistically) to physically abuse a partner.

There are other groups who make up the Democratic Party and try to toss their issues into the agenda: blacks, environmentalists, open borders types, America lasters, atheists, and other minorities. But none of them control the party like the women above... the angry women above. Basically, the Democratic Party has become the party of angry white women. Interesting, huh?

Matt Patricia's #metoo Moment

For those who don’t follow the NFL, the new coach of the Detroit Lions, Matt Patricia, found himself explaining this week how he was indicted for aggravated sexual assault in 1996. This event and how it is being handled adds more proof that the #metoo “movement” is dead. It also continues to expose just how messed up liberal thinking is. Observe.

Here’s what happened: In 1996, an unidentified woman claimed that two football players from a New York engineering school burst into her hotel room while she was on Spring Break in Texas and they took turns raping her. She called the cops and named Matt Patricia as one of the two. He was arrested that night and then released. She was treated at a hospital. Four months later he was indicted. When the woman said she didn’t want to go through a trial, the charges were dropped.

Patricia became an engineer and then entered coaching. Eventually, he became the Patriot’s defensive coordinator. In this last offseason, he was hired as the head coach of the Lions. He didn’t tell them about the arrest. Now the news has come out after someone tipped a Detroit newspaper.

#metoo Is Dead

Had this news come out three or four months ago, we know how things would have turned out for Patricia. The accusation would have hit the news. Every Hollywood starlet would have tweeted about it. The Lions would have fired Patricia the day the news hit and would have issued a statement condemning him and saying they have zero tolerance for this... and they aren't going to stick around to see if the allegations are true.

Patricia then would have (1) disappeared from public (early #metoo period), (2) denied everything but talked about how important it is that all women be believed (James Franco #metoo period), or (3) denied it (end of #metoo period). Meanwhile, self-righteous journalists would have told us how Patricia had no right to due process and that all women must be believed.

But that’s not what happened. Patricia denied it. The Lions stuck by him. The NFL said nothing. At the same time, the liberal sports media started talking about due process and actually said that Patricia must be seen as innocent until proven guilty. Wow. They pointed out that the case was dismissed and there was no evidence offered and that this poor young man was only 21 at the time... can we really hold this against him the rest of his life? At the beginning of the #metoo movement, none of that mattered. All that mattered was that the male had been accused. Even in the second period (the Franco period), there was only a reluctant acknowledgement of due process and always with pages of hang-wringing about how vital it was that all women be believed and the accused be punished regardless. What happened here was exactly as sexual harassment and assault were treated before the #metoo movement came into being.

Said differently, after all the whining and gnashing of teeth about a changed world, we ended up right back where we were before this started.

Liberals Are Stupid

All that said above, this issue has once again shown how stupid liberals can be. Here are some examples.
(1) At the same time one sports talker host made it clear that Patricia deserves due process, he also said, "But we can't just assume he's innocent just because he says so and because no victim has come forward. This is a he-said-she-said situation and we will never know what really happened."

First, this is not he-said-she-said, if there was a rape, there should be evidence. When she reported the rape and then went to the hospital, they automatically do what is called a “rape kit.” This includes photos, swabs and a physical examination. If this was a rape, there should be evidence of bruises, forcible intercourse, and DNA. The absence of that is proof.

Secondly, an indictment is not proof of anything. The jury had enough evidence to indict on her allegation alone. Indictments are meaningless.

Third, when someone alleges something, they need to offer some proof. If you want an example to explain how stupid it is to assume otherwise, consider the application of the same false logic this guy used to me claiming that Bill Clinton raped me. "Gee, we can't just assume Bill's innocent just because he says so and because Andy didn't offer any proof. This is a he-said-he-said situation and we will never know what really happened." That's stupid. We know that didn't happen, so my allegation is worthless.

(2) All the internet parrots are now repeating that "there are five witnesses!" These are: a nurse, a doctor, a police detective, a police officer, and a friend of the alleged victim. Gee, that sounds bad. Five victims can't all be lying, right? Here's the thing... every one of these "witnesses" will merely repeat what she reported to them. Not one of them saw anything independent of what she told them. In essence, they are reading her story five times. None of that is evidence of anything except that she made an allegation.

(3) "[H]is decision to address the situation publicly with a general denial but no specifics opens the door to a search for more." Not really. The media is a bunch of bottom feeders who glorify in dragging people down. They were going after this story regardless... don't pretend he forced you to act like vultures.

(4) "If it’s a false accusation, Patricia actually should welcome the opportunity for the facts to come out now." Ha! How does he disprove a negative? How do you prove that something didn't happen? Especially when the media has already decided that where there is an allegation it is impossible to accept a denial as true? Any bit of proof Patricia offers will be torn apart by the media using mis-logic, supposition and a desire for sensationalism. He's best off leaving the media with nothing more to churn the story.

Why Body-Cams Are Important

In the past two weeks we've seen why I was always a big fan of police officers wearing bodycams. Not only do they help identify and remove bad cops, but even more importantly, they are exposing the cry-racism industry as the fraud it is. This came up twice last week.

In the first instance, a group of black women, including Harry Belafonte's daughter, claimed that two racist cops mistreated them. They made a big deal of it online. So the cops released the bodycam footage and found that the cops not only weren't even rude to them, but the cops were lighthearted and joking around. The women were even laughing... until they decided to scream racism. The video exposed their lies.

In the second instance, a black woman claimed to be harassed by a racist cop at a traffic spot in Virginia. She posted a tearful video in which she said: "I just was threatened by this police officer... all of my African-American and people of color out there are going to know exactly what I'm talking about." Enter the bodycam footage. The cop was calm, respectful and all business. He never said anything racist or hostile. In fact, she was the aggressor. She refused to sign the ticket, which caused him to inform her that he would need to arrest her and impound the car if she didn't. She signed. He thanked her. He left. The end... until the false video.

This is why lots of leftist and race groups now want the bodycams gone, because these videos are exposing the fraud that is their cry-racism industry. And with it, it will disprove the claim that the cops are out there harassing blacks, and that will kill one of the few tools left in the race baiting tool box. With that gone, the race baiting industry's already-shrinking influence will continue to shrink. The more that shrinks away, the more race relations will finally normalize.
