If #Weinergate is As Bad As I Think it is, Trump Might Actually Win
If someone put a gun to my head and gave me the final vote to decide between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to be the next President of the United States, I’d have to give serious consideration to the bullet. In an election that seemed certain to go to the most liberal Democratic President the nation has ever seen, there’s a scenario in which the most liberal Republican nominee ever could wind up as President by default.

More stolen, forged ballots discovered in Florida
We’ve been hearing all manner of reports and analysis of early voting in this election. One recent story said that early voting in Florida’s black community was low, which would be bad for Hillary Clinton. But Florida is a swing state, and another report claims that early swing state voting is going Clinton’s way. The truth (at least in general) may wind up being somewhere between the two, but there’s one group of people who the early voting is decidedly not going well for at all. Those would be the folks who were victims of voter fraud and had their absentee ballots stolen, forged and turned in by someone else.

CNN Rocked By 4 Massive Scandals In Just 24 Hours
Is it all right if I just take a moment to pat myself on the back? Bear with me a bit here… CNN has always been a left-wing network.

Bush and electing Barack Obama. Something, though, changed dramatically for the worse three years ago.

Ecosexuals Believe Having Sex with the Earth Could Save It
If you happen to find yourself in Sydney this week, you have the unique opportunity to have sex with the earth. You just need to stop by the “ecosexual bathhouse,” which is currently part of the Syndey LiveWorks Festival of experimental art. The bathhouse is an interactive installation created by artists Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair of Pony Express, who described the work to me as a “no-holds-barred extravaganza meant to dissolve the barriers between species as we descend into oblivion” as the result of our global environmental crisis. But they also see their piece as a part of a much larger ecosexual movement, which they say is gathering momentum around the world.

Big Government Using Big Data To Monitor Citizens
Frankly, I don’t know why the county buys data from a third party when the stores would probably turn over the data free of charge, no warrants or subpoenas necessary.

Venezuela to City Dwellers: Grow Your Own!

Meanwhile in Turkey, Erdogan is now locking up journalists
I’ve grown tired of typing the phrase, the situation in Turkey continues to deteriorate, but there’s really no other way to describe it.

The latest group to be added to the latter list is composed of journalists from one of the country’s only remaining independent newspapers which has been critical of some of Erdogan’s policies.

While some of us may have missed it in the blizzard of US election news, Britain’s High Court handed down an unexpected ruling this week.

Liberals and Their Nightmare Fantasies
Every four years, the Republican Party choose a man to be labeled the next Hitler by liberals. Having been born during the presidency of Eisenhower (who opposed Communism and was therefore Hitler, in the liberal imagination) and having lived through the presidencies of five other Republican presidents, I can tell you that at least four of those were demonized as latter-day Hitlers by liberals. The sole exception was Gerald Ford, whom liberals considered too stupid and incompetent to be Hitler.

Stupid, racist whites versus entirely competent black people
There are no people more committed to black inferiority than racist whites who flatter themselves that they’re loving Progressives who are taking care of blacks. I figured out this white racism problem after the Rodney King riots, when the media tried to push the “rapture” defense for Damian Williams, one of the people caught on camera beating the bejesus out of Reginald Denny – that is, that Williams, animal-like, was so caught up in the rapture of the moment that he was unable to control himself. I thought then, and continue to think now, that this was racism of the type that would appeal to every two-bit white supremacist.
Bad Habits: Cocaine and Feminism
If you have never tried cocaine, congratulate yourself on your wisdom. Maybe heroin is more addictive and dangerous than cocaine, but if you’ve ever known anyone who got hooked on the Bolivian Marching Powder, you know what a wicked drug it is. Here’s the really evil thing about it — cocaine makes you feel smart. Unlike so many other drugs, which make you feel loopy and out-of-control, cocaine has the opposite effect — it makes you feel like you’ve got it all together, like you have near-omniscient wisdom. This euphoria is a drug-induced illusion, of course, but when you’re on coke, this illusion of total competence feels real. You are completely in control, cocaine tells you, and this arrogance is what makes cokeheads go so completely out of control.
No Running Back
Heinlein said if you must travel in time, do it forward, never to the past, because in general (with interludes) the future is better than the past. I realized last night that one of the most unsatisfactory aspects of this election is that both main candidates are trying to run to the past.

The Left’s Impulse to Bully Is Universal
It is widely understood that the Left wants to impose censorship on the rest of us, and where it can, it will.

“If You Don’t Want to Swing with the Ape-Man, Baby, Stay Out of the Jungle”
