Obama Scandals


Cuba is Cracking Down on Dissidents, and Obama’s to Blame

The Creepy Freaks of “Social Justice”
Perhaps “Sarah” Nyberg (@srhbutts) thinks I’m stupid. Or perhaps Ms. Nygberg has been fooling people for so long now, Ms. Nyberg thinks that bogus little “victim” act will never fail. At any rate, after I was first suspended from Twitter for a five-month-old tweet about Ms. Nyberg, I had hoped that my response would caution Ms. Nyberg against further aggressions. Alas, as Benjamin Franklin said, experience keeps a dear school but fools will learn in no other. Some genuinely frightening people have tried to shut me up in the past, and have learned that I am not easily frightened. In fact, some of those people are in federal custody now because this is not a game that Homey D. Clown plays.

It was August 7, 2012, and I was standing in my hotel room in Kansas City about to shotgun a beer for the first time in my life.

Figures. Democrats’ “Freedom of Choice” Abortion Movement Was Stolen from the Nazis
When the Nazis entered Poland (a Roman Catholic country) in 1939 abortion for any reason was illegal. The use of contraceptives was also illegal in Poland (because the Roman Catholic Church was opposed to abortion and to contraception as well). The Nazis conquered half the country (the other half went to the Russians), and they immediately did away with the anti-abortion laws. Hitler wanted to limit and reduce all non-Aryan populations. In late 1939 a decree was issued encouraging Polish women to seek abortions. The campaign was called “Auswahlfeiheit” (“Freedom of Choice”).

The real email question: Did Hillary Clinton sell US secrets?
While the media is focusing your attention on the shiny object that is her email server, the real story is not being told.

This is not a conspiracy theory and it is not hyperbole. Stick with me for a moment.

The U.S. Department of State needs to analyze the Kurdish issue more closely and carefully. When they do, they will see that the problem should not be called “the Kurdish Issue;” it would be more just to call it “the Turkish Racism Problem.”




What Conservatives Hate About Common Core, and Why They’re Not Alone
Good News: There’s something you can do about it.

Bush’s Common Core obfuscation
Many informed voters who watched Thursday’s GOP presidential debate may have come away confused about Jeb Bush’s stance on education. Bush is known to be a supporter of Common Core. Yet there he was insisting that the federal government shouldn’t be involved in creating educational standards.

Could Google Swing the Next Election?
I have no idea, but that’s the question Wired magazine asks, though more ominously that I put it

Google Search Results Could Steal the Presidency
Wired website has the results of a study by two scientists at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology that shows the algorithm used by Google in its search engine could accidentally determine the outcome of a close presidential race.

A rebuttal to those who accuse America of imperial arrogance (I’m talking to you Mr. Obama)

The Peril to Democrats of Left-Leaning Urban Centers
Twenty years ago, America’s cities were making their initial move to regain some of their luster. This was largely due to the work of mayors who were middle-of-the-road pragmatists. Their ranks included Rudy Giuliani in New York, Richard Riordan in Los Angeles, and, perhaps the best of the bunch, Houston’s Bob Lanier. Even liberal San Franciscans elected Frank Jordan, a moderate former police chief who was succeeded by the decidedly pragmatic Willie Brown.

The “Free Stuff” Party
Democrats are Santa Claus, and it’s Christmas every day with lots of toys for good little boys and girls who vote Democrat

The Doublethink Strategy of the Cultural Elitists

The Coddling of the American Mind
In the name of emotional well-being, college students are increasingly demanding protection from words and ideas they don’t like. Here’s why that’s disastrous for education—and mental health.

Scott Walker and a “Return to Normalcy”
Despite what The Donald and Jeb! and Carly said in last week’s debate, Scott Walker’s closing statement tackled an even larger elephant in the room: “I’m a guy with a wife, two kids, and a Harley.

The August 10, 2015 issue of The New Yorker contains an article by Kelefa Sanneh, “The Hell You Say,” that purports to examine “the current free-speech debate.” Unfortunately, the article contains a number of incorrect assertions and flawed arguments—we’ve identified 10—that require response.

Feminism’s Attack on “Institutionalized, Normative Heterosexuality”
If you’ve read my book Sex Trouble, you understand how I focus on the gap between feminism’s exoteric discourse (what feminists say when seeking support from the general public) and feminism’s esoteric doctrine (the beliefs shared among intellectuals and activists who lead and control the movement). Like other movements of the radical Left, feminism preaches one thing to outsiders while teaching something else to insiders, and this deception is both deliberate and necessary.

Disciplinary Bulverism
Occasionally Americans debate the correctness of beliefs and practices – political, moral, social. But not very often. Most Americans, or so one would judge from social media anyway, are Bulverists: they already know who is right and who isn’t, so all they need to debate is why the people who get things wrong – so, so wrong – do so.

What if George W. Bush’s Social Security reforms had passed?

But today, exhaustion looms closer, only two decades away in 2035.

Sheltered Students Go to College, Avoid Education
If you’ve reached that crotchety age I’m at, you may be as mystified as I am by the kids these days — especially by how they’re behaving on campus. I get the naive leftist politics and the wildly irresponsible partying; those things have been staples of student life for hundreds of years. I even understand the drive toward hamfisted censorship of views they don’t like. After all, I did my coming-of-age at the University of Pennsylvania during the “spring from hell,” when copies of the campus newspaper were stolen to protest perceived bias against minorities, and Eden Jacobowitz was famously brought up on racial harassment charges for screaming “shut up, you water buffalo” out the window at a black sorority that was conducting a rather lively promenade down the walk below his dorm window.

The coming perfect storm on American college campuses – one that feminists and other professional victims will hate it
Several bizarre trends are burgeoning on American college campuses, all of which have the potential to backfire in spectacular form against the hardcore Leftists who are promulgating these ideas.

Fundamental Concepts – Opportunity Lost
I had nothin’ for this week. Usually I start thinking about what to write for these posts, and after sorting through a couple ideas one grabs my imagination, and I sit down and write it. This week….nada. I had only a small ideas, it’s really important but it seems so self evident to me that I can’t think of a lot to say about it. I’ll give it a shot.
