News of the Week for October 23th, 2016


Election 2016


The Disgusting Media Sat on Sexual Assault for a Partisan Victory
Sixteen women as of now have come forward to say they were sexually assaulted by Donald Trump. Sixteen. It is an avalanche of absolutely bad news for the Trump campaign, and it is far too close to the end of the cycle to recover from it. The Trump campaign is finished. However, each and every one of these cases is years old. The tape that showed Donald Trump talking to Billy Bush, the very tape that started this avalanche, is itself more than a decade old. Some of the stories of Donald Trump are older than that. But, we are only now hearing about it. Wikileaks seems to have provided an answer as to why, as well: The collusion between the Media and the Clinton campaign.

Republicans should not “accept” Hillary Clinton’s Supreme Court nominees
When Hillary Clinton nominates a Supreme Court Justice to replace Antonin Scalia (assuming Merrick Garland is not confirmed before Clinton takes office), that nominee will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he or she will uphold the Constitution impartially and decide cases based on the law, not his or her policy preferences or the status of the litigants.

Pentagon issues handbook on sex change in the ranks
Political correctness remains a central characteristic of the Obama administration’s policies. Take the Pentagon’s new anti-discrimination policy on what a newly-published handbook calls “gender dysphoria,” or “the distress that some transgender individuals experience due to a mismatch between their gender and their sex assigned at birth.”

The Coming War with Russia
It certainly sounds alarmist to predict a war with Russia. However, members of this administration are following policies that can lead to only that result. They are following belligerent policies on two fronts: cyberspace and Syria. These policies are based on a farrago of mendacity and incompetence.

Europe is trying to teach its gender norms to refugees
FEW men can roll a condom onto a plastic penis with a straight face, and Ali and Ahmadzai are no exceptions. The two Afghan asylum-seekers and ten other men are taking a sex-education class at the refugee centre where they live in the Flemish town of Broechem, and the giggles are flying. “In Logar, where I’m from, you don’t talk with girls,” explains Ahmadzai. If you do, the Taliban “kill you with stones”. Belgium has been a bit of a culture shock, though he still doesn’t dare talk to girls: “It is good just looking at them.”

You don’t need to be a psychology professor to realize than an attempt to transplant pronouns from the body to the mind is an attempt to destroy our ability to communicate.

The “freedom of the press” doesn’t give the media any special privileges – but it’s also not a redundancy
I’ve often argued that the freedom of the press was seen near the time of the Framing (and near the time of the ratification of the 14th Amendment, as well as in between and largely since) as protecting the right to use the press as technology — everyone’s right to use the printing press and its modern technological heirs.

Screwtape and Human Wave
“Dear Wormwood,” So begins each chapter in a book about how to lure humans away from all that is good and eternal, and into darkness and evil. Screwtape, from the ministry of temptations, instructs his nephew Wormwood on all the varied ways that mankind slips into sin. You do not have to be a Christian to read some of the letters and feel a chill. The letters, written by C. S. Lewis between 1938-1942, could be written today. Especially Letter XV.

Third-Wave feminism’s rhetoric of sexual “empowerment,” and the feminist crusade against “slut-shaming,” have incited reckless promiscuity, the results of which could have been easily predicted.

California Aborting Free-Speech Rights
In signing a bill that criminalizes the distribution of a “confidential” video of a “health-care provider,” Gov. Jerry Brown has at least dispensed with the notion that California’s Democratic leadership cares at all about free-speech rights.

Should the judge in that Montana incest case be impeached?
By now you have likely heard about the latest chapter in the national discussion over judges handing down preposterously lenient sentences to people convicted of heinous crimes. It came to us from Montana, where District Judge John McKeon sentenced a man to 60 days in jail (with credit for time already served) for repeatedly raping his prepubescent daughter. The public outcry over that decision was fast and furious, and now a petition drawing tens of thousands of signatures calling for his impeachment has been assembled for the governor.

Crisis of the Conservative Intellectual

Socialism Kills More Babies than War
Recent reports that infants now die at a higher rate in Venezuela than in war-torn Syria were, sadly, unsurprising – the results of socialist economics are predictable. Venezuela’s infant mortality rate has actually been above Syria’s since 2008.

Stalin? Whodat???
I think the study of ancient history extends to the advent of the first Clinton administration in 1993 or so. As we all know, and as former Latin students might say, ancient history has fallen into desuetude. I think this may explain the finding reported in Jamie Gregora’s Daily Signal story “This is the percentage of millennials who believe George W. Bush killed more people than Stalin.”

Teaching Intolerance: How Columbia University Feminists Suppress Dissent
Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and nowhere is this more evident than in the youth indoctrination centers known as university campuses.

The GOP Needs Competition, Not Revival
Regardless of the outcome of the Presidential election, 2016 will mark a low point for the Republican Party. We saw the rise, fall, and rise again of the Establishment as the dominant force that fended off many Tea Party conservatives. We witnessed the rapid ascension of the alt-right; they are no longer seen as the fringe that we thought they were just a year ago. One does not have to be opposed to Donald Trump to realize that the GOP is much more comfortable with populism than Constitutional conservatism.

Alt-Right Trumpism: Russia-bots or Americans?
This morning, before Twitter went down, I saw a long-time blog friend—one which I’ve met in person—light into a woman for the suggestion that Donald Trump’s online following has been infiltrated by Russia-bots. I thought this was common knowledge, and it’s something which would explain the vileness of Trump’s alt-right fans.

Elections Have Consequences, But It’s the Other 1,460 Days That Matter
