Hat tip to Rollo at Rational Male for this great video. It nicely sums up the insane world of political correctness as it is being practiced in our colleges and universities today. If you are a parent shelling out thousands of dollars for you kid’s education, this is most likely what you are paying for.
John Pickering provides us with a visual demonstration that shows the immigration issue in context with the population of the third world. The left claims that we are helping the rest of the world when we take in a flood of refugees, but when you look at the total numbers involved, you see how false that argument is. What we take in, and can take in, is a drop in the bucket.
If you want to help the people in the third world, you have to do so by improving the societies in which they already live. We simply don’t have the resources to help the billions of poor people around the world and we would only end up destroying our own culture in the process.
The situation is astounding. Never before in my lifetime can I recall a president who was so critical, so histrionic and so hostile to his own country. But that’s what we have. And there is no reason at this point to think that Obama or the people in his administration are going to give in and face reality. No my friends, they are going to run out the clock on their grand vision to “fundamentally transform America” into their stinking socialist third-world-hell-hole. The only question for us is what do we do for the next year until we can kick the bastards out and get some adults elected who will put the brakes on and change the direction of the country. And I have to admit, that’s a big freaking question.
There is some good news though. First off it looks like people are finally starting to get it. Not just conservatives. No, I think most of us who indentify as conservatives have known very early on just who and what Obama is. But this attack in Paris and the sudden unleashing of ISIS has had the effect of waking up a large number of regular people, both in Europe and also here in the US. That is good news because you cannot change the direction you are going in if you aren’t paying attention. Obama’s strange and bizarre behavior is being noticed by people who up till now thought that he was a normal, if liberal, president.
At the same time we have candidates like Trump, Cruz and others willing to be more blunt and straightforward than we have seen in some time. And the media seems to suddenly be more interested in asking real questions of our president than in the past. Reporters asking Obama about the situation at the press conference did not back down like they have in the past. Instead they acted like real journalists. And Obama did not like it one little bit. He was annoyed, petulant and irritated. That’s a dead giveaway he did not expect the situation that we are in. Nor does he have any plan on how to deal with it. But you already knew that.
The coming year will be difficult. Obama is working hard to bring in thousands of refugee-terrorists and he is probably going to succeed at least partially. Combine that with his refusal to take American security seriously and we will almost certainly have terrorist attacks here in the US like those in Paris. Many experts expect it and Obama will do nothing as long as he is in office. So be prepared for a rough year.
A weak economy will be bad for everyone’s situation. If you have a job you will be lucky to keep it. If you are looking for work, things will be even tougher than they are already. No one will want to take risks. If you have money saved then you will be better off. Spend wisely and prudently; don’t go overboard if you can help it. Watch you pennies and clip coupons. The economy could take a hit if we are attacked. Do what you can to protect yourself. Learn to defend yourself if you can. Take your own security seriously. And keep you powder dry. But don’t despair. We are going to win in the long run. People are waking up, and that’s exactly what’s needed.
Tammy Bruce has put together a special public podcast of her show dedicated to the terrorist attack in Paris. Normally you have to be a subscriber to her show to get access to the podcasts, but in this case you can listen to the Tammy Bruce Show for free.
Students protesting at Amherst College have issued a list of demands to administrators that includes making them apologize for signs that lament the death of free speech.
A group calling themselves the Amherst Uprising listed 11 demands they want enacted by next Wednesday. Among them is a demand that President Biddy Martin issue a statement saying that Amherst does “not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the ‘All Lives Matter’ posters, and the ‘Free Speech’ posters.”
You may have seen the videos from the University of Missouri that show the fascists in the faculty and student body rioting against the freedom of speech and 1st Amendment rights of some of their fellow students. The protesters in question have been making various claims about alleged racism and other boogey-men in an effort to push the ever-expanding leftist agenda. Return of Kings put up a good summary article that gives a rundown of the alleged events. It should be noted that at this point it looks more and more like the whole thing is a massive hoax, like much of what the left gives us on a daily basis.
A number of conservative commentators have chimed in on this out of control situation by pointing out that this kind of thing is going on all across the nation. Universities and campuses around the country have, over the course of many years, been infiltrated and overrun by the leftist rejects of normal society. Roger Kimball, for example, has written several books that deal with this growing problem. Check out his books on Amazon, Tenured Radicals and The Long March for more information on how we got to this point. But the short version is that the left has targeted the universities for radicalization and to a large extent they have succeeded. These individuals are damaged and deranged and many, if not most, could not find employment in a private sector job. Their flight to the university is in large part a flight from the real world, in which their childish demands would result in unemployment.
If we are going to turn this country around and save Western Civilization then the universities will have to be taken back from the radical, insane leftists who now occupy them. They are destroying our culture from within and they will not stop voluntarily. They will have to be ejected back into the real world where they will have to get real jobs and prove their value to society through their actions like the rest of us.
In this video Senator Claire McCaskill says that she want men to just shut the hell up. Of course, she also says that the video is a joke.
OK, I will assume for the sake of argument that it is and point out that all humor is based on some kernel of truth. And the truth is that while the Senator is attempting, rather poorly, to be amusing, the underlying reality is that the Senator does in fact really want men to shut up. After all, a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.
Like nearly all women at the top level of leadership in the Democrat party, the Senator pays homage to the leftist feminist agenda. Otherwise she would not be allowed to rise to that level.
Feminism is part of the leftist agenda, and it informs what liberal Democrats do, including their views on men and the policies that they want to put in place that affect the traditional relationships between men and women. Over and over again we see the manifestations of this. The fake rape charges from the Rolling Stone and similarly with the Duke Lacrosse team for example. The attempts to lower the standards in all sorts of areas, particularly the military, police and firefighters is another. And note the left’s attacks on more traditional women such as Sarah Palin who don’t tow the leftist line. It’s not an accident that the left hates the women that don’t agree with their radical social justice agenda.
No, the Senator really does not want to hear those views from men (or anyone else) that contradict the left’s narrative and the Social Justice agenda. If you are not part of her group, and men are not, then you are ultimately disposable. And why would anyone want to hear what you have to say if you are?
In the UK there is an amusing reality television show in which young women who apparently have almost no taste or judgment regarding their own appearance get a “make-under” to return them to something more or less normal that won’t frighten away small children and animals. On one level it is, of course, amusing entertainment. But you have to wonder about the mental processes of someone who can’t figure out that looking like this woman does at the start of the clip sends all the wrong signals to the opposite sex. (and anyone else in the vicinity) I mean really, would you hire this person before the change in her outfit? And in our increasingly degraded culture we see more and more of this kind of nonsense. Sure, it could be cute once or twice as a spoof; but as a steady diet it leaves much to be desired. So ladies, please take my advice and the advice of POD, less is definitely more and lose the pink hair.
Fox news reports that at a recent campaign stop Hillary Clinton commented that she would be in favor of a mandatory gun confiscation similar to the one that was put into place in Australia. I have had this conversation with liberals who don’t believe that gun control laws aren’t about guns but about control. Every statist, dictatorial regime has collected the guns from their citizens first before rounding up the trouble makers. The critics who recently had a cow over the remarks of Ben Carson on this very subject should now be required to explain just how it is that the presumed front-runner in the Democrat primary wants to violate the second amendment rights of America’s citizens by taking away their firearms in direct contradiction to what the constitution says.
Hillary Clinton said Friday that mandatory gun buy-back programs like ones in Australia are “worth looking into,” sparking criticism that the Democratic presidential front-runner would, if elected, impose gun-confiscation efforts.
Clinton made the comments during a campaign stop in Keene, N.H., when an attendee asked about Australia’s 1996 and 2003 buy-back programs that collected roughly 700,000 banned semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.
“I think it would be worth considering doing it on the national level, if that could be arranged,” Clinton responded.
“This validates what the NRA has said all along,” said Chris Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action. “The real goal of gun control supporters is gun confiscation.”
Cox said Clinton’s comments echo recent ones by President Obama, making “very clear” that the underlying goal of gun-control advocates is confiscation.
I didn’t bother to watch the Democrat debate. If you are politically aware, and especially if you lean conservative or libertarian, you know how predictable and boring such a debate is likely to be. And who really needs one anyway? We have had years of liberal-leftist policy and we can all see for ourselves just how bad things have become.
At home we have a lackluster economy with dim prospects for many. A record number of people are out of the workforce and cannot find jobs. Some jobs are being created, but certainly not enough for all those who are looking for work, and all too often they are not the better and higher paying ones that people have had in the past. Everyone who is paying attention knows this.
In the rest of the world things look even worse. Since this administration came into office things have collapsed in the Middle East. The region is now awash with violence and revolution not seen is some time. Not that the area was ever a paradise on Earth, but since Obama’s “Arab Spring” the situation has gone quickly downhill and shows no sign of stopping with country after country falling into disarray.
It is with this in mind that we bring you a brief panel discussion from Fox featuring Hugh Hewitt and Tammy Bruce along with Sean Hannity and of course your Democrat apologist du jour. And it’s worth pointing out that the ratings for this debate were also unimpressive as Breitbart reports.
In this remarkable video we see 60 Minute’s Steve Kroft point out the failure of Obama’s foreign policy and the disaster that is the Middle East, as well as Putin’s resurgent and aggressive Russia. But Obama is oblivious and in denial. He will not come to terms with the implosion of his policy and the degradation of America’s position and influence in the world that is tied directly to his administration’s incompetence and malevolence.
If you need a reason to vote for a Republican as your next president, whoever it might be, this is a good one. The world is always in bad shape when an incompetent Democrat is in charge in America. And the next president is going to have quite a mess to clean up after this fool is out of office.
The elites are surely having a collective cow in the last few weeks. Boehner forced to step down from his ineffectual position. Trump continuing to attract voters who want to kick the establishment out of their comfortable positions of power and wealth. A left-wing pope attacking the Western Civilization that he is supposed to be protecting and garnering plenty of criticism in the process. And lefty media unable to understand why they can’t push Hillary any higher in the polls than your local wino. There is certainly quite a lot going on that shows the cracks in the edifice of the cathedral. I hope, like many others, that these are positive signs for the future.
The phenomenon of Trump and the collapse of Boehner’s position would seem to be closely tied together to many observers and is certainly instructive. Many pundits have pointed out that the performance of outsiders in the Republican primary is sending a strong message of no confidence to the establishment that does not care about or respond to the party base, and is overtly hostile to its own supporters.
By all accounts someone like Trump shouldn’t be in the running. He is not a professional politician and has no previous political experience. But he has risen to the top of the heap largely because he is willing to throw political correctness on the trash heap that it deserves. And the other top candidates like Carson and Fiorina are getting attention because they too are not part of the elite Washington club inside the beltway.
The regular American citizen is sick and tired of the self-appointed elites thinking that they are our betters and that they have the right to tell us what to think, what to say, what we can believe. Thought control is a standard tool of authoritarians and I think most regular people are fed up with it. It has no place in the political culture of America and we have gotten to the point where the Marxist speech codes have become so obvious that it can no longer be ignored.
