“In all very numerous assemblies, of whatever character composed, passion never fails to wrest the scepter from reason. Had every Athenian citizen been a Socrates, every Athenian assembly would still have been a mob.” -James Madison
Oh, What a Lovely Race War! Leftist antiwhite sites that are allowed to exist by our benevolent internet overlords—sites that are allowed to have advertisers, sites you can post on social media—employ writers who are no more skilled than these murderers, and just as hateful. In terms of writing ability, I’d put Breivik and Tarrant up against any of the semi-tards who post at Salon. Hell, those two guys, whose manifestos together total more than 1,574 pages, are exactly the kind of prolific ideologues who, were they leftists, would be highly sought after by the editors of high-quantity political sites.
Roadblocks to impeachment by James Piereson Some have suggested that the House could order the arrest of the Attorney General and Secretary of the Treasury, and any other member of the executive branch for that matter, for defying the subpoenas. That would be an extreme step and a highly unlikely one, unless the Speaker of the House is prepared to send her Sergeant at Arms to arrest the Attorney General for contempt of Congress, thereby risking a fist fight or a shoot-out at the Department of Justice with the U.S. Marshalls assigned to protect him. That would be an unprecedented spectacle, though perhaps reminiscent of the occasion in 1856 when Rep. Preston Brooks of South Carolina went into the Senate chamber to beat Sen. Charles Sumner within an inch of his life (an event that signaled greater violence to come).
The doggedness of William Barr Dear Demowats, Be Afraid… Be bery afraid: “William Barr has pledged to answer the following questions: ‘How did the Trump-Russia investigation get started? Who started it? On what authority? For what reason? What was the rationale for the FISA warrants taken out against Carter Page and renewed several times? It has been alleged that assets of the DOJ spied on the Trump campaign: did they? The entire investigation was plagued by leaks of classified information, a felony: who leaked it that information? Who, for example, leaked the transcript of the phone call between Michael Flynn, Trump’s first, ill-fated director of the National Security Council and the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak? There is only a small circle of possible candidates.’
The Limitlessness of our Discontent | Politics which does not inspire nor call to us the better versions of ourselves but instead serves as the Animal House trough over which the malevolent battle wickedly on the streets and in cyberspace. Movies made not from great acting and stories epic and ideal but instead replaced by limitlessness of violence and licentiousness. Families lines redrawn; ideas re-written; food reprocessed and regrown and stored – for the quiet question asked in the darkness of yore “But how will we survive this winter?” has never, nevermore been whispered. The credit companies will pay; the state will assume the risk; the Central Banks will print the money – spend, spend, spend away; for the limitlessness is our inheritance!!
Spotting the wild Fascist The defining doctrine of Fascism once D’Annunzio was out of the way was this quote by Mussolini: “Everything for the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” (There are a few variant translations from the original Italian.) Building directly on Leninist political economics, Benito Mussolini wrote a theoretical justification of the totalitarian state which paralleled Joseph Stalin’s less theorized but brutally-executed totalitarianization of the Soviet Union at around the same time.
California governor wonders why gas prices are so high in state with high gas taxes So gasoline in California is averaging just over four dollars per gallon these days. That’s considerably higher than the national average of $2.88 (according to the AAA) and even further above the low price of $2.51, you’ll pay in Alabama this week. Do you suppose that the taxes might have something to do with it? After all, California has the second highest state gas tax in the country at 55.5 cents per gallon. (Second only to Pennsylvania.)
To Stay Sane in an Age of Broken Politics, Admit What You Don’t Know – Why is American health care such a mess? Because the system is a patchwork of mandates and programs inspired by an often contradictory mix of Good Intentions, Control Party and Don’t Care. Or take foreign policy. Who do you think funded Osama Bin Laden in the 80s? We did, of course. To adapt an old expression: No Good Intention ever goes unpunished.
Bill of Attainder. Definition: A legislative act that singles out an individual or group for punishment without a trial. The Constitution of the United States, Article I, Section 9, paragraph 3 provides that: “No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law will be passed.” Mueller’s Copperhead Bill of Attainder
Liberals Clarify: ‘Alt Right’ Means Everyone To The Right Of Stalin In one test, the subjects were shown a series of photographs of individuals of varying political leanings. The images included Ben Shapiro, Bill Cosby, Martha Stewart, Chris Pratt, Marlon Brando, Telly from Sesame Street, Ernest P. Worrell, Jordan B. Peterson, Guile from Street Fighter 2, Rachel Maddow, Colonel Sanders, and Alf. This test proved to be the most helpful as every single photograph was unanimously labeled “alt-right” by the test subject. That is, all of them except for one: Communist revolutionary and leader of the Soviet Union Joseph Stalin. For Stalin, most subjects responded, “That’s some person who did some stuff. I’m sure he’s fine.”
Chained to the network Google has “been tracking the location of almost every Android device owner for over a decade,” according to ZDNet.
Hundreds of Bodies, One Nurse: German Serial Killer Leaves as Many Questions as Victims He administered overdoses of drugs that caused cardiac arrest so that he could rush back and try to revive patients heroically. His colleagues called him “Resuscitation Rambo” and rewarded his skill with a necklace made of injection tubes, which he wore with pride.
It’s Time to Break Up Facebook – Outside of a couple of gigs in college, Mark had never had a real boss and seemed entirely uninterested in the prospect. I didn’t like the idea much myself, but I would have traded having a boss for several million dollars any day of the week. Mark’s drive was infinitely stronger. Domination meant domination, and the hustle was just too delicious.
Post-Modern Awakening The 60’s ended with excessive drug taking, social unrest and pointless terrorism. This current spasm appears to be burning itself out in mindless self-destruction, assaults on reason and self-mutilation. The race to stake out the most extreme position leads to an embrace of increasingly self-destructive behaviors by the people leading the revival.
Costly face tattoo removals on the rise as regret sets in So, between getting his degree, working full-time in construction, and going to church several days a week, Arias, who is now five years sober, is in the middle of getting his face, neck and hand tattoos removed with lasers. The painful procedures, which will span six sessions (he’s already undergone two), will eventually get him to a point where the first thing people see isn’t a reminder of his dark history.
Will political correctness kill classic movies? The rise of political correctness can be seen across movie screens this weekend. “The Hustle,” a gender-swap remake of 1988’s “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” rails against the patriarchy between sight gags. “Avengers: Endgame” shoehorns a minor gay character into the story as a super-virtue-signal. “Long Shot” shows Seth Rogen apologizing for the United States bombing Japan to help end World War II.
