White Nurses Now Required to Acknowledge their “White Privilege”

     Those born with the unshrivable sin of “Whiteness” must grovel by acknowledging this sin in order to work their chosen profession in an act of useless recentness. Specifically, Australian nurses are now required to announce their “White Privilege” to Aboriginal patients.

“Australian nurses and midwives are being forced to announce their ‘white privilege’ before treating Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander patients – a move which has been slammed as ‘racist to its core’.

“The term ‘white privilege’ defines the unearned social and cultural advantages awarded to people with white skin which are not enjoyed by people of colour or non-white backgrounds.

“The Nursing and Midwifery Board believes the cultural safety of Indigenous or Torres Strait Islander patients is just as important as their clinical safety.”

     Medical care is medical care. Medicine is not based on culture let alone “cultural sensitivity”.

     This has not gone without criticism, however.

Quick Takes – Oppression Everywhere!!1!: White Supremacist Pyramids; Inclusive Newspeak; Transmisic Microaggressions

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: It’s the little things that will drive you insane.

     First, a little bit of mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Do you know what not being woke leads to?

     Genocide.

“A course at Salisbury University in Maryland is using a ‘Pyramid of White Supremacy’ to help teach students about diversity and ‘cultural competence.;

“The one-credit course, ‘Diversity and the Self,’ is a required class for any student hoping to obtain an elementary education major.

“The pyramid ranks various concepts on different levels according to severity, with ‘Indifference’ forming the base of the pyramid and ‘Genocide’ residing at the top.

“‘In a pyramid, every brick depends upon the one below it for support,’ an accompanying caption explains. ‘If the bricks at the bottom are removed, the whole structure comes tumbling down.'”

Obama’s Assault on Urban, Suburban, and Rural Communities on It’s Last Breath?

     …but will the death stroke be so stricken?

     One of the most pernicious designs of the Obama Presidency was the “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” machinations. While it did not receive the publicity of so-many other of this efforts, it remains one of t he most fundamentally transformative… until perhaps now.

     To wit: The “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing” plan was to turn America into a copy of Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis“, by eliminating suburbs by effectively nationalizing zoning to fundamentally transform how people are housed in an assault on the individualistic suburbia in order to push every one into a controlled Progressive cage to emulate some “college dormvia means of declaring racism where there is none, is now defunded by Congress:

“None of the funds made available by this Act may be used by the Department of Housing and Urban Development to direct a grantee to undertake specific changes to existing zoning laws as part of carrying out the final rule entitled ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing’ … or the notice entitled ‘Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Assessment Tool’. . .”

     Congress has done it’s part. Now it is up to HUD Secretary Ben Carson of the Trump Administration to deliver the fatal blow:

“Congress has done its job. Now it is up to the Trump administration with Carson in the lead to rescind this regulation with the window of opportunity Congress has given, so that no administration ever again attempts to take over local governments across the country.”

Venezuela Poised to Explode as Pressure Continues to Build

     Ah, the so-called triumph of socialism, where one of the most oil rich nations in the world suffer from almost daily blackouts, due in large part to mismanagement of a once commendable electrical grid. One must wonder, however, if the people running the electrical grid are getting the same death threats as doctors who have to work in truly horrific, almost medieval, conditions… or worse.

     It is a matter of time before something breaks and the course that Venezuela is on ends, what with deadly riots and machete-wielding youth gangs fighting over garbage. Such change could happen sooner rather than later.

“The consensus view among the participants of the Emerging Markets Trade Association and Siobhan Morden, a managing director for Nomura Securities in New York, is that Venezuela’s leader Madura will be out within 12 months.

“…

“Direct military intervention aka a military coup is needed for the Madura regime to change.”

     Perhaps the need for military intervention explains why Venezuela’s neighbors are a bit worried that Maduro might try to distract both the people and the military with external interventions.

“[Guyana] Minister of State, Joseph Harmon told Demerara Waves Online News that reports that Venezuela had been planning an incursion into Guyana’s territory was being factored into government’s analysis. ‘Of course, as a nation, we have to take all of these things into consideration. We cannot disregard any reports like that,’ said Harmon, a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the Guyana Defence Force and current member of the Defence Board.”

Quick Takes – Make Believe: LGBTQ&c. Acronyms; Sexual Dimorphism; Safe Spaces

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Believe the unreal, deny the real, and then hide when reality doesn’t give a f**k.

     First, a little bit of “Land of Make Believe” mood music:

     Carrying on…

     Just when you thought they had run out of new sexualities to make heterosexuality seem like nothing special or even abnormal… they go ahead and add “OS” to the list:

“Recently, we all learned about new sexual identities like ‘two spirit’ and ‘questioning’ when a teacher’s group in Canada reeducated us about the latest victim groups that need attention. Right on cue, a new sexual orientation has leapt onto the scene. ‘Objectum sexual’ describes people who are sexually attracted to inanimate objects like cars or statues. Amanda Liberty is one such person whose attraction for hanging chandeliers cannot be suppressed.”

From Separation of Powers to Administrative Oligarchy

     The Federal government and all state governments have a tripartite division of power into the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch—usually quite explicitly in state constitutions—de jure; now-a-days it is increasingly no longer de facto.

     The administrative state, run by unelected bureaucrats, have increasing taken over writing, enforcing, and judging the law without input from an elected official, in many cases aren’t even appointed or confirmed by elected officials.

To a large degree this is the fault of the elected and the appointed (by those elected) to either writing de facto enabling laws, making broad policy musings, or invoking the Chevron deference.

     Career civil servants who are not appointed by elected officials, but simply rise through the ranks, are increasingly writing rules that they enforce and adjudicate violations—all sans the input or say of any elected official or person appointed/confirmed by an elected official. Especially in cities, the cities are not run by city councils or mayors, who might approve of city codes and the like, but in actuality by career civil servants. Though city managers are often hired by a city council, they operate as autonomous overlords, and often go rouge. These civil “servants” game the system to become rich kleptocrats with massive guaranteed benefits and six-figure pensions for life (usually after a surprisingly short amount of years).

     It has become less the situation of government employees enforcing the law as written under the guidance and direction of elected or appointed/confirmed officials, but of laws being written to direct agencies and department’s heads to come up and enforce whatever they want within a broad policy goal, with the actual rules and enforcement being done by career civil servants with, at best, the rubber-stamp approval of some nominally operating elected official or appointed/confirmed official.

     Punishment, too, is being left to these career civil servants, either by blind deference or by allowing the civil servants to punish people with fines or just outright confiscate that person’s property!

     It is often argued that the administrative state and guidance by “experts” (a longtime hallmark of Progressive governance) who work independent, as much as possible, by the hoi polloi, is necessary since government has gotten to big for the people, or their elected representatives, to understand how to run or even how to govern at all. The only way to fix this is to reduce the scope of government, and to use laws written by the legislative branch, as much as possible, such that regular people will be able to adhere to and follow without expensive legal representation; when more specific regulations or rules are necessary, they should be limited to regulating their own operations or to applying facts to specific guidelines… and always to be approved by an elected official, or an official who has been directly nominated/confirmed by an elected official (or officials).

The Imam’s Magic Pro-Child-Rape Zipper

     A Ugandan Imam, who already has three wives, was convicted for raping a 2-year-old child, and sentanced to life in prison. The Imam had a novel reason for why this wasn’t rape: The zipper unzipped itself with the girl on his lap being violated through no fault of his own.

     Is he claiming that Allah unzipped it, or if the girl was a witch? Perhaps the later because “[u]pon his arrest, a group of Muslims stormed [the girl’s] home and destroyed her property, claiming she had framed Musa Mulo, their religious leader.”

Soviet Ape-men vs. Catgirl Nuns

     There has been yet another call to create human-animal hybrids, or demi-humans, a reality, calling it an imperative:

“It is a bit of a stretch, but by no means impossible or even unlikely that a hybrid or a chimera combining a human being and a chimpanzee could be produced in a laboratory. After all, human and chimp (or bonobo) share, by most estimates, roughly 99 percent of their nuclear DNA. Granted this 1 percent difference presumably involves some key alleles, the new gene-editing tool CRISPR offers the prospect (for some, the nightmare) of adding and deleting targeted genes as desired. As a result, it is not unreasonable to foresee the possibility—eventually, perhaps, the likelihood—of producing ‘humanzees’ or ‘chimphumans.’ Such an individual would not be an exact equal-parts-of-each combination, but would be neither human nor chimp: rather, something in between.

“If that prospect isn’t shocking enough, here is an even more controversial suggestion: Doing so would be a terrific idea.”

     While creating human-animal hybrids, or demi-humans, with a bonobo would be simpler than with other animals, it would nonetheless mean that we are one step closer to creating catgirls for domestic ownership!

     That, and mad science is always heartily endorsed here. But is this being proposed for the sake of (mad) science?

     Nope.

“In any event, the nonsensical insistence that human beings are uniquely created in God’s image and endowed with a soul, whereas other living things are mere brutes has not only permitted but encouraged an attitude toward the natural world in general and other animals in particular that has been at best indifferent and more often, downright antagonistic, jingoistic, and in many cases, intolerably cruel. It is only because of this self-serving myth that some people have been able to justify keeping other animals in such hideous conditions as factory farms in which they are literally unable to turn around, not to mention prevented from experiencing anything approaching a fulfilling life. It is only because of this self-serving myth that some people accord the embryos of Homo sapiens a special place as persons-in-waiting, magically endowed with a notable humanity that entitles them to special legal and moral consideration unavailable to our nonhuman kin. It is only because of this self-serving myth that many people have been able to deny the screamingly evident evolutionary connectedness between themselves and other life forms.”

     If this sounds familiar, it is because Soviet scientist Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov already tried to make ape-human hybrids, a fact that the author of “The Case for Making Chimp-Humans” points out approvingly. In both cases the desire is to disprove the existence of God and/or souls. (Pro-tip, that isn’t how the entire “Soul” thing works…).

     Would that really disprove God and/or souls? Would we really create an atheistic army of ape-men/women to totally smash religion? Or perhaps the result would be the complete opposite…
