Peggy Noonan still doesn't get it - and likely never will



Peggy Noonan's latest column in the Wall Street Journal
But it is a weakness of Trump supporters now that they still cannot take seriously the unreadiness of the White House for a sudden, immediate and high-stakes crisis. They do not see the chaos and the lack of professionalism of the unstaffed government as a danger. It is, a dreadful one.

This is the glaring defect that Peggy fails to see.  It’s not just that the people who govern America don’t care about the people in the country.  It’s that the ruling class has done such a piss poor job of governing.   

They don’t realize that they have done a terrible job because they are doing really, really well for themselves.  In that, they resemble the oligarchs and dictators who rule in places like Cuba and Venezuela.  They are fat, happy and rich while their people go dumpster diving for food.   

Americans living in places away from the metropolitan areas on both coasts are not yet in the same shape as Venezuelans, but they have seen their jobs and dreams escaping thanks to the plans and policies of the ruling class who exported their jobs to third world countries and their dreams for their children buried under piles of college loan debt that did not provide the future they were promised.

Hillary Clinton warned of fascism coming to America during an alumnae event at her alma mater, Wellesley College.


Not a parody!

After posting a number of Babylon Bee parodies, this one read exactly like it would have been written by a parody writer trying to make Hillary Clinton appear deranged. 

“I think Madeline [Albright]'s book is really well-named: "Fascism: A Warning," Clinton said. “And the idea that 'oh, it can’t happen here' is just old-fashioned, my friends.”

“The demagoguery, the appeal to the crowd, the very clever use of symbols, the intimidation, verbal and physical,” she listed, “this is a classic pattern. There is nothing new about it, it's just different means of messages being delivered."

Clinton mentioned fascist dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini and, although she never explicitly used Trump’s name, she referenced him quite frequently during her speech and repeated a few accusations against him, including Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and obstruction of justice.

"I think with the rapidity with which information can be conveyed today because of the internet, it is an even more dangerous set of circumstances..." Clinton said, seemingly comparing Trump's America to Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy.

Biden reaches 'across the aisle" to segregationists in his own party

At a New York City fundraiser Tuesday night, Biden told donors he has reached across the aisle throughout his career. "I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland," Biden said, according to a pool report. "He never called me 'boy'; he always called me 'son.' "

Joe's buddy Eastland didn't hide his feelings, according to  NPR

Eastland represented Mississippi in the Senate for decades. He decried integration in public schools, the military and elsewhere and was a staunch opponent of civil rights legislation.

At the height of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s landmark Montgomery bus boycott, Eastland told a segregationist rally that "In every stage of the bus boycott we have been oppressed and degraded because of black, slimy, juicy, unbearably stinking n*****s." According to Robert Caro's Master Of The Senate, Eastland went on to urge the crowd to "abolish the Negro race" with "guns, bows and arrows, slingshots, and knives."

Recall that Biden told a Black crowd that Republicans would "put y'all back in chains."   
Giving new meaning to bipartisanship.

Oberlin's insane defense of trying to destroy a local bakery


David Bernstein -

Here’s Oberlin’s litigation position, from its court filings: “Gibson bakery’s archaic chase-and-detain policy regarding suspected shoplifters was the catalyst for the protests. The guilt or innocence of the students is irrelevant to both the root cause of the protests and this litigation.” Get that? Whether the students accused of shoplifting had actually been shoplifting or not was irrelevant to whether it was fair to accuse the store of racism etc for detaining the students as shoplifters. The fault lay with the bakery owners for daring to actually stop and prosecute shoplifters!

This is the kind of b.s. that gets you A’s at Oberlin with a certain type of SJW professor, but that normal people rightly think defies common sense.

Terrorism-Linked CAIR Forces U.S. Army War College to Capitulate on Raymond Ibrahim's Islam Lecture

The U.S. Army War College (USAWC) has just surrendered to the demands of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)—an “unindicted co-conspirator,” to quote the U.S. Dept. of Justice, in the largest terror funding case in American history, and a designated “terrorist organization” for nations such as the UAE.

House Democrats Draft Legislation That Would Make It A Hate Crime To Eat At Chick-Fil-A

From the Babylon Bee (satire, but is it really?)

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Under intense pressure from their left-leaning constituents to do something about the dangerous, Christian-founded restaurant chain, Democrats in the House of Representatives unveiled legislation Tuesday that would make it a hate crime to eat at Chick-fil-A.

The CFAHATE Act Of 2018 would make it a hate crime punishable by federal law to dine at the restaurant or use its drive-thru, with extra punishments for people who post that they’re eating at the restaurant on their social media accounts. The legislation would also impose heftier penalties for anyone who patronizes the extremist hate group’s chicken sandwich establishments during Pride Month.

And this really happened:

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey posted that he was eating at Chick-fil-A on his Twitter account over the weekend, and was later forced to apologize after weathering severe criticism by progressives.

Ocasio-Cortez: 'Everyone's Pay Should Be Equal, But My Pay Should Be More Equal Than Others''


Donkey Chompers


From the Babylon Bee (satire, but is it really?)

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Speaking to reporters after coming out in support of pay raises for herself and her fellow congresspeople, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she believes everyone's pay should be equal, but that her and her colleagues' pay should be "more equal" than everybody else's.

"I campaigned on equality and lifting up the poor and bringing down the rich," she said. "But after a few months in Washington, it's clear to me now that we need to shift my campaign rhetoric a bit."

She then held up a chart that had her core values on it and crossed out "Everyone's pay should be equal" and replaced it with "Everyone's pay should be equal, but my pay should be more equal than others.'" The representative began leading her supporters gathered in a chant: "Regular Americans good, politicians better! Regular Americans good, politicians better!"

And the reporters looked from Ocasio-Cortez to the other corrupt politicians nearby, and from the other politicians to Ocasio-Cortez again, but already it was impossible to say which was which.
