Justice Clarence Thomas: ‘Forget the Bigot in the Pick-up Truck, Biggest Impediment to his Career was Modern-Day Liberals’


It's dawning on more and more Black people that the Left are the ones holding them down. 
“I felt as though in my life I had been looking at the wrong people as the people who would be problematic toward me. We were told that, ‘Oh, it’s gonna be the bigot in the pickup truck; it’s gonna be the Klansmen; it’s gonna be the rural sheriff… But it turned out that through all of that, ultimately the biggest impediment was the modern day liberal. They were the ones who would discount all those things because they have one issue or because they have the power to caricature you.”

The Brennan Dossier: All About a Prime Mover of Russiagate


Keep in mind that Brennan voted Communist before heading the CIA.
The Trump-Russia collusion theory was not propagated by a few rogue figures. Key Obama administration and intelligence officials laundered it through national security reporters who gave their explosive claims anonymous cover. Nevertheless, Brennan stands apart for the outsized role he played in generating and spreading the false narrative.

Strzok-Page Texts Were Not Unearthed by Sharp FBI Investigative Work – Strzok’s Angry and Scorned Wife Turned Him In After Finding Texts on His Phone!



We were told that the texts were uncovered by the diligent work of Michael E. Horowitz, the Inspector General. Now it turns out that it was the wife who turned Strzok in.  The IG had nothing to do with it.

Get ready for the IG report to be a nothingburger that protects the leading lights of the corrupt FBI.

The Justice Department watchdog’s past high-profile probes of FBI cases involving Hillary Clinton, James Comey, and others show a pattern of kid-glove treatment and pulling punches for some powerful people, Paul Sperry reports for RealClearInvestigations.

That suggests Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s soon-to-be-released report on FBI surveillance abuses could disappoint those hoping for a thorough, tough and fair check on government wrongdoing from a man routinely portrayed within the Washington Beltway as a “straight shooter.”

Based on previous reports by Horowitz, I expect that he will be focused on protecting the institutions he's assigned to investigate.

Trump Under Fire for Using Male Pronouns to Describe Conan the Hero Dog

The press is cis-gendered bigots.
There are, of course, a large number of tweets mocking Trump for getting Conan's gender wrong. They never asked whether Conan identifies as a male and simply hasn't started to transition yet. Shame on them for assuming gender!

Press Narrowly Escapes White House Lawn After Trump Releases The Hounds




One CNN reporter almost made it, climbing the fence, when one of the dogs got his shoe. Just as all hope was lost for the oppressed CNN journalist, Trump, being merciful, called off the attack, whistling for the hounds to return. "We'll get you one, day, reporters -- you'll see. You'll all see!" he cackled, rubbing his hands together.

Steve Hayes - Insane Never Trumper

Today on the Brian Kilmeade show Steve Hayes came out for Trump’s impeachment. He actually defended the only indisputable quid pro quo in the entire Ukraine fiasco. Claiming that Joe Biden only demanded the immediate removal of the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma because the prosecutor was corrupt. 

Hayes is stupid enough to imagine that Joe Biden wanted the old, “corrupt” prosecutor to go so that a new “clean” prosecutor would do a better job of investigating corruption at Burisma – and determine why Hunter Biden was being paid over $80,000 per month for a no-show job knowing nothing about gas, Ukraine, or even speaking the language.  He wants us to know that Joe Biden was anxious to have his son's business dealings exposed.


That’s right, according to Steve Hayes, it was Joe Biden’s desire to have his son’s corrupt employer investigated. To do so he threatened to withhold a billion dollars in aid unless the Ukrainians got a better prosecutor, the better to go after his corrupt son. Yes, it makes perfect sense: Joe Biden wanted a new, incorruptible prosecutor investigating Burisma so that the bribery of the Biden family can be exposed.

This makes you realize that either Steve Hayes has always been nuts, or that Donald Trump has driven him insane. And to think that at one time Hayes was considered a credible commentator on the Right.  

And that's why the Right, with spokesmen like Steve Hayes, was always losing.

Trump Backers Aren't a Cult…But We Are the Outsiders

The message here is clear on two fronts. First, in this present media landscape, a cult could roughly be defined as groupings of people despicable enough to hold views contrary to those of New York newsrooms and Ivy League faculty lounges. The second message also seems self-evident. Rather than debate policy, disparagement becomes the default narrative of the president’s detractors. This new “cult” criticism seems to flow directly from the inability, so far, of the Democrats to damage the president in the impeachment imbroglio.

The smear machine at work. Never forget that they hate you.

The New York Times Lies Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

The New York Times helped Stalin hide the Ukrainian famine he created. Their “reporter”, Walter Durante, did so in an interesting way. What he did was to deny the mass deaths from famine by writing that while there was some hunger and some mismanagement, there were no mass deaths from starvation. Instead, he wrote, “there is no actual starvation or death from starvation, but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition.” The dead, you see, died from the sniffles, not from hunger.

The technique is interesting and evergreen: don’t deny the fact that there is a problem, but minimize it and blame it on other factors. And, in Durante’s case – as well as his reincarnation ion the current crop of liars at the New York Times – vilify the brave people that try to tell the truth.

This is how the Times tries to twist the leaks coming out of the Inspector General’s report on the Obama Administration’s illegal spying on the Trump campaign. The modern-day Walter Durnates want you to believe that the top leaders of Team Obama were only doing their jobs. Any “errors” were made by obscure underlings who no one has ever heard of.

How the New York Times Helped Stalin Hide Ukraine’s Famine From The World.


In the years 1932 and 1933, a catastrophic famine swept across the Soviet Union. It began in the chaos of collectivization, when millions of peasants were forced off their land and made to join state farms. It was then exacerbated, in the autumn of 1932, when the Soviet Politburo, the elite leadership of the Soviet Communist Party, took a series of decisions that deepened the famine in the Ukrainian countryside. Despite the shortages, the state demanded not just grain, but all available food. At the height of the crisis, organized teams of policemen and local Party activists, motivated by hunger, fear, and a decade of hateful propaganda, entered peasant households and took everything edible: potatoes, beets, squash, beans, peas, and farm animals. At the same time, a cordon was drawn around the Ukrainian republic to prevent escape. The result was a catastrophe: At least 5 million people perished of hunger all across the Soviet Union. Among them were nearly 4 million Ukrainians who died not because of neglect or crop failure, but because they had been deliberately deprived of food.
Neither the Ukrainian famine nor the broader Soviet famine were ever officially recognized by the USSR. Inside the country the famine was never mentioned. All discussion was actively repressed; statistics were altered to hide it. The terror was so overwhelming that the silence was complete. Outside the country, however, the cover-up required different, subtler tactics. These are beautifully illustrated by the parallel stories of Walter Duranty and Gareth Jones.


In the 1930s, all of the members of the Moscow press corps led a precarious existence. At the time, they needed the state’s permission to live in the USSR, and even to work. Without a signature and the official stamp of the press department, the central telegraph office would not send their dispatches abroad. To win that permission, journalists regularly bargained with foreign ministry censors over which words they could use, and they kept on good terms with Konstantin Umansky, the Soviet official responsible for the foreign press corps. William Henry Chamberlin, then the Moscow correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor, wrote that the foreign reporter “works under a Sword of Damocles—the threat of expulsion from the country or of the refusal of permission to re-enter it, which of course amounts to the same thing.”
Extra rewards were available to those, like Walter Duranty, who played the game particularly well. Duranty was The New York Times correspondent in Moscow from 1922 until 1936, a role that, for a time, made him relatively rich and famous. British by birth, Duranty had no ties to the ideological left, adopting rather the position of a hard-headed and skeptical “realist,” trying to listen to both sides of the story. “It may be objected that the vivisection of living animals is a sad and dreadful thing, and it is true that the lot of kulaks and others who have opposed the Soviet experiment is not a happy one,” he wrote in 1935—the kulaks being the so-called wealthy peasants whom Stalin accused of causing the famine. But “in both cases, the suffering inflicted is done with a noble purpose.”
This position made Duranty enormously useful to the regime, which went out of its way to ensure that Duranty lived well in Moscow. He had a large flat, kept a car and a mistress, had the best access of any correspondent, and twice received coveted interviews with Stalin. But the attention he won from his reporting back in the U.S. seems to have been his primary motivation. His missives from Moscow made him one of the most influential journalists of his time. In 1932, his series of articles on the successes of collectivization and the Five Year Plan won him the Pulitzer Prize. Soon afterward, Franklin Roosevelt, then the governor of New York, invited Duranty to the governor’s mansion in Albany, where the Democratic presidential candidate peppered him with queries. “I asked all the questions this time. It was fascinating,” Roosevelt told another reporter.

'Coup' Concerns Suddenly Don't Seem So Far-fetched

Victor Davis Hansen
For most of the last three years, Donald Trump's critics have scoffed at supposed "conspiracy theories" that claimed a "deep state" of bureaucrats were aborting the Trump presidency. We have been told the word "coup" is hyperbole that reveals the paranoid minds of Trump supporters.

Trump's critics have also radically changed their spin on "coups." To them, "coup" is no longer a dirty word trafficked in by right-wing conspiracists. Instead, it has been normalized as a possibly legitimate means of aborting the Trump presidency.

Mark Zaid, the attorney representing the Ukraine whistleblower, boasted in two recently discovered tweets of ongoing efforts to stage a coup to remove Trump.

"#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow," Zaid tweeted in January 2017. Later the same month, he tweeted: "#coup has started. As one falls, two more will take their place."

Retired Admiral William H. McRaven recently wrote an op-ed for The New York Times all but calling for Trump's ouster -- "the sooner the better."

No sooner had Trump been elected than Rosa Brooks, a former Defense Department official during the Obama administration, wrote an essay for Foreign Policy magazine discussing theoretical ways to remove Trump before the 2020 election, among them a scenario involving a military coup.

In September 2018, The New York Times published an op-ed from an anonymous White House official who boasted of supposedly widescale efforts inside the Trump administration to nullify its operations and subvert presidential directives.

Such efforts to oppose Trump are often self-described as "The Resistance," a reference to the underground French fighters resisting the Nazis in World War II.

Trump's opponents often have praised the deep state precisely because unelected career officials are seen as the most effective way to sabotage and stymie his agenda.

A "coup" is no longer proof of right-wing paranoia, but increasingly a part of the general progressive discourse of resistance to Trump.

Amb. Sondland Admits He Has No Evidence Trump Tied Ukraine Military Aid to Investigations Other Than His 'Own Presumption'

Democrats were working on another nothingburger Wednesday with Ambassador Gordon Sondland's testimony. Not only did Sondland admit again that the only direct evidence he has on Trump is Trump's own statement saying he wanted nothing from Ukraine — "no quid pro quo" — but he also had to admit he has zero evidence Trump even tried to connect the military aid to the investigations of 2016 election interference and Burisma.

This exchange between Ohio Rep. Mike Turner and Sondland just destroyed the Democrats' case.

Theodore Dalrymple on the Real Goal of Political Correctness

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

Never let "THEM" force you to lie.

The Looming ‘1984’ Election

Victor Davis Hanson
Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four.
We are also well beyond even the stark choices of 1972 and 1984 that remained within the parameters of the two parties. In contrast, the Democratic Party as we have known it, is extinct for now. It has been replaced since 2016 by a radical progressive revolutionary movement that serves as a touchstone for a variety of auxiliary extremist causes, agendas, and cliques—almost all of them radically leftwing and nihilistic, and largely without majority popular support.

When Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and a number of Democratic presidential candidates sympathize with the New York subway jumpers who openly threaten the police, then what or who exactly is the alternative to such chaos?

When the media proves 90 percent partisan according to its own liberal watchdog institutions, or reports things as true that cannot be true but “should” be true, what are the forces behind that?

If a late-term abortion results in a live baby exiting the birth canal only to be liquidated, who exactly would say that is amoral?

If the leading Democratic presidential candidates openly embrace the Green New Deal, reparations, abolishing the Electoral College, welfare for illegal aliens, open borders, amnesties, wealth taxes, a 70-90 percent income tax code, Medicare for all, and legal infanticide—what is the alternative vision and who stands between all that and a targeted traditional America?

When the violence of Antifa is quietly—or sometimes loudly—condoned, who are those who empower it and excuse it?
Who exactly wishes to pack the court, to repeal the Electoral College, to nix the difference between residency and citizenship, to promote identity-politics tribalism over collective affinities, to nullify federal immigration law, to hunt down and disrupt political opponents as they eat and sleep—and who not?

Whose ideologies logically lead to promoting iconoclasm and statue-toppling, the Orwellian renaming of streets and buildings, the defacing of public murals?

Problems of the affluent

Take vocabulary. Your typical middle-class American could not tell you what “heteronormative” or “cisgender” means. But if you visit Harvard, you’ll find plenty of rich 19-year-olds who will eagerly explain them to you. When someone uses the phrase “cultural appropriation,” what they are really saying is “I was educated at a top college.” Consider the Veblen quote, “Refined tastes, manners, habits of life are a useful evidence of gentility, because good breeding requires time, application and expense, and can therefore not be compassed by those whose time and energy are taken up with work.” Only the affluent can afford to learn strange vocabulary because ordinary people have real problems to worry about.

“Participation Trophy” Crisis

It occurs to me that out of all the sources of misery we experience lately, there is a pattern of surprise, of lots of build-up before a payoff that falls short, and then a frenzy of scapegoating afterward. And this is all done by creative persons and creative groups who didn’t expect the disappointment, in fact who apparently hadn’t even factored in failure as a possibility. They weren’t particularly stupid or incompetent — they just never seriously considered that their delivery could bomb. That they’d ever be sent back to the drawing board. That there’d ever be a moment of judging or assessment at all. Their attitude seems to be “I worked really hard on this, so, ya know…uh, here. Now where’s my bonus?”

The Democrats want to define Trump being president as a high crime and misdemeanor



That pretty much sums it up.
I think the outrage the left feels towards Trump boils down to two main issues. The first is that he’s president at all, and does what presidents do with all the attendant powers of a president. The second is that he is not afraid to use those powers in ways that stand to harm the Democrats and their interests and/or the Deep State and its interests.

They find this state of affairs unconscionable. So they redefine whatever Trump does that they don’t like and/or that may harm them politically as unacceptable, unprecedented, offensive, and even at times criminal.

And always, always impeachable.

Impeachment Hearings: New Whine in an Old Battle

The Diplomad

You saw Ambassador Taylor and Deputy Assistant Secretary Kent all in a knot because the President had an "irregular" channel he used to conduct foreign policy in Ukraine. Wow! I didn't realize that we had elected Taylor and Kent!

Let me put it in nice simple terms so that the Swamp Beings will understand: The President sets and conducts foreign policy, not State, not the NSC, not the DOD, not any other alphabet agency. He does not have to go through State or NSC to conduct said policy; he does not have to consult with Kent or Taylor or anybody else on Ukraine or any other aspect of foreign policy.

All Presidents have used "irregular" channels going back at least to Woodrow Wilson and Colonel House. All have used messengers and negotiators outside the established bureaucracy for different diplomatic missions. There is nothing unusual or illegal or impeachable for doing this. The bureaucracy doesn't like it, so what?

The real Ukraine controversy: an activist U.S. embassy and its adherence to the Geneva Convention

John Solomon:
The first time I ever heard the name of U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was in early March of this year. It did not come from a Ukrainian or an ally of President Trump. It came from a career diplomat I was interviewing on background on a different story.

The diplomat, as I recall, suggested that Yovanovitch had just caused a commotion in Ukraine a few weeks before that country’s presidential election by calling for the firing of one of the prosecutors aligned with the incumbent president.

The diplomat related that a more senior State official, David Hale, was about to travel to Ukraine and was prepping to be confronted about Yovanovitch’s comments. I remember the diplomat joking something to the effect of, “we always say that the Geneva Convention is optional for our Kiev staff.”

The Geneva Convention is the UN-backed pact enacted during the Cold War that governs the conduct of foreign diplomats in host countries and protects them against retribution. But it strictly mandates that foreign diplomats “have a duty not to interfere in the internal affairs of that State” that hosts them. You can read the convention’s rules here.

I dutifully checked out my source’s story. And sure as day, Yovanovitch did give a speech on March 5, 2019 calling for Ukraine’s special anticorruption prosecutor to be removed. You can read that here.

I’ve done many thing in my life that have made me potentially unelectable to any office in the United States.

The Impeachment Hearings Are the Beginning of the End


Never count your chickens before they hatch, but this sounds right.
When all of this impeachment hysteria has at last come to a close, when the last gasps of 2016 denial have finally subsided, Adam Schiff and the Democrats can attempt to answer the next great question: What have you been doing for the past three years? The impeachment distraction has provided a rather tenuous excuse for doing nothing else. Nothing in terms of working with the president. Prescription drugs, USMCA, and illegal immigration have sat undisturbed on the sidelines while they have recklessly pursued an undemocratic fantasy. The kickoff to an election season is probably the single worst time to have to answer for that. Beginning with the impeachment hearings the Democrats are in serious trouble, but they’re too deeply invested to turn back now. Any way forward, they lose.

We don’t mind corrupt politicians, if they’re one of us

Why Joe Biden will be Dems nominee.
His lack of clarity, about anything, foreign and domestic, will not deter them, and after all is considered, he is all they’ve got.

About enriching his son while he was vice-president under Obama, selling his office, in other words – they figure, so what? He is a politician, and crookedness is to be expected.

Besides, he is a Democrat, and among Democrats, all is forgotten and forgiven. The Party comes first.

Democrats, or mostly Democrats, are elaborately generous and forgiving when it comes to one of their own, misdeeds be damned.


Maybe it’s a “Godfather” thing. It is all about FAMILY. Here is Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) scolding brother Fredo: “Don’t ever take sides against the family, ever.”

Ever!

Rules to live by, for Democrats, as found in Virginia, where Governor Ralph Northam was caught red-handed partying in blackface, as a younger man, and he is still the governor. Sure, when the news broke there were howls for him to step down, immediately. He simply outwaited the tempest.

He knew something. That it would pass. Because he is a Democrat, and Democrats stick together, and never take sides against the family.

Likewise, Canada’s Justin Trudeau. Same blackface story, and same demands that he resign and quit running for re-election.

He begged to be forgiven. He promised to be good, good and true to his Liberal values…which, for some reason, among Liberals, includes this urge to poke fun at minorities. Yes, blackface.

Megyn Kelly, by the way, got fired from her morning gig at NBC-TV for never endorsing such behavior, but only mentioning that it’s what some people did in the past.

That got her canned…but not Trudeau. He got re-elected.

Ted Kennedy got re-elected to the Senate over and over again after drowning a woman in a car and going to sleep in his hotel room while she was still fighting for air.

For a while, he thought about running for president, but changed his mind, since in a general election Republicans also get a chance to vote. (He served 47 years as “Lion of the Senate.”)

But in Massachusetts, it’s mostly Democrats, and every time he ran, they forgave him, and forgot Mary Jo Kopechne.

So whether it is Biden, or maybe Warren, or maybe even Hillary again, no worries. You can do no wrong. You are family.

The Federalist: "Donald Trump Versus ‘The Interagency Consensus’"




It's becoming clearer every day that the government bureaucracy don't believe in elections or representative government. They are determined to hold and seize power and do so more and more openly.
Working for Government Doesn’t Make You Above Elections.

Recall the IRS scandal from the Obama administration. One of the ways the scandal was repeatedly downplayed was with the claim there was no involvement from the White House. As far as we know, that’s true. But tell me, what scenario scares you more: The president allegedly uses his power to instigate the investigation of a political opponent and immediately gets confronted by whistleblowers from within the government?

Or is it when federal employees with the power to ruin your life launch a broad-based attack on thousands of ordinary participants in the political process who not-at-all-coincidentally happen to be small government advocates, and they do this of their own initiative without having to be told what to do by the president because everyone is marching in ideological lockstep? And they further do this secure in the knowledge the president will defend what they’ve done as “not a smidgen of corruption” and that when they destroy tens of thousands of potentially incriminating emails under congressional subpoena there’s not a thing their victims can do about it?
Working for Government Doesn’t Make You Above Elections

Indeed, at every turn opponents of Trump within the government have been defended, often not because what they’ve done is defensible, but because of the false belief that service in the federal government is automatically ennobling and ipso facto makes someone trustworthy. Indeed, the desperate need to defend an administrative state reads at times like fan fiction....

it’s also clear that Trump was elected in no small part because tens of millions of Americans do not approve of business as usual in Washington, and specifically the lack of democratic accountability that can be brought to bear on the status quo. And Trump is enough of a natural disruptor that he threatens that status quo in both good and questionable ways. In response, lots of people in D.C. are willing to bend the rules to stop him.

Bill Clinton: Epstein's Cause Of Death Depends On What Your Definition Of 'Suicide' Is


It's the Babylon Bee, much more truthful than the Washington Post, NY Times, CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR ...

PHILADELPHIA, PA—Speaking to a packed 30-seat arena, Bill Clinton remarked on Jeffrey Epstein's recent passing, saying that Epstein's cause of death "really depends on what your definition of 'suicide' is."

"Did Epstein commit suicide?" asked an attendee at the event.

A wide-eyed Clinton shrugged his shoulders. "I mean, it really depends on what your definition of suicide is, heh."

An awkward silence ensued. Bill turned to look at Hillary for support, but she just glared at him and ran her finger across her throat, a metaphor that means "death."

He went on, "Heh, I mean, well, we've got to define terms here, alright? If you mean, 'Did he hang himself without any outside assistance?' then I'd say that does not fall under the definition of what may or may not have occurred."

I am an American

“Conservative.” “Liberals.” These two categories are not the same. Not all “Conservatives” are “Republicans,” and – unfortunately for the life expectancy of the Republican party – not all “Republicans” are “Conservative.”

An attempt to pull all the Trump voters into one group was made under the ham-handed and, frankly, Deep State 1984esque label, “Alt-Right.” ...


I don’t know about you, but I do not consider myself either a “Conservative” or a “Republican” or a member of the “Alt-Right.” Never have. Never will. I consider myself to be one thing and one thing only:


I AM AN AMERICAN.

Always have been.

Always will be.

Nothing less.

Couldn’t be anything more.

Born and bred from ancestors that go back to the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1636.

To call me a Conservative is to miss the point.

To call me a Republican is to mistake me by a mile.

To call me an AMERICAN is to know me down to the bone. I suspect this blunt fact is true of all those who term themselves “Independents,” all those who call themselves “Conservative,” all those who joined the Tea Party, and the Trumpening; they and all the others who,

Came from the hills and mountains,
The valleys and the plains
,
Some were kind and gentle,
And some too wild to tame.

That’s who we are and that’s who we shall always remain — Americans.

A single, obvious, and overarching word to cover a wide, wide tent:

Americans.

Americans all regardless of race, color, creed, or national origin.

Let’s rebrand ourselves from this point forward. Let us go back to the original brand:

When you are called a Conservative, you reply, “No, I am an AMERICAN.”

If someone tries to tar you with the label “Republican,” you must correct them by saying, “No, I am an AMERICAN.”

If accused of being some sort of stealth fascist by being labeled “Alt-Right,” you need to sort those mental midgets out by reminding them, “No, I am an AMERICAN.”

If they say you are arguing from Republican or Conservative views, point out to them that you are arguing from AMERICAN views only.

Do that consistently and we can all look forward to future disputes and elections that pit the “Progressives” against the AMERICANS. I know which way I’d bet.

It’s a big country and it needs a big rebranding. If we call ourselves “AMERICANS” we’re going to need a bigger tent.

Remember when Hillary rebranded herself as Progressive?

“Progressive” caught on because it junked “liberal” but didn’t say “socialist.” At least not in so many syllables, until the Democrat candidate Clownworld of 2019.

That was then. Now, of course, “progressive” as a brand has become synonymous with cheats, control-addicts, the walking brain-dead, lying Social Justice Warriors, and the power junkies that want to tell you all about the bad McDonalds Happy Meals in condom chewing San Francisco.

Today “Progressive” is as dead as Hitler’s charred corpse smoldering in a ditch outside the bunker on Pennsylvania Avenue. But “progressives” don’t know they’re crispy critters because they can’t entertain any ideas that weren’t minted in ye olde Soviet Union. So let’s let them keep it.

Let those bitter aging boomers cling to their Darwins and their “progressive” programs and labels. Progressives, after all, are the queens of worthless labels.

 

American Women Need to Shift Their Priorities If They Want to Be Happy

In other words, feminists want women to want what feminists want—and women tried. They really did. Now their lives are falling apart.

Speaking as a male, I never compromised my marriage for my career.

That's not axiomatic, trust me on this.
