Nazi theory indeed specifically denies that such a thing as œthe truth exists. The implied objective of this line of thought is a nightmare world in which the Leader, or some ruling clique, controls not only the future but the past. If the Leader says of such and such an event,  It never happened well, it never happened. If he says that two and two are five  well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs. — George Orwell wrote those words in 1943, in his essay, Looking Back on the Spanish War.

The Economy’s Inequality Dividend – WSJ Wage growth for production-level workers slowed with average hourly wages up 3% over the last year compared to 3.4% in November. Some of this may be monthly statistical noise, and the trend in the last two years has been higher wage growth among lower earners. That’s a contrast to the early years of this expansion when real wages were flat.

The Federal Reserve’s interventions inflated asset values, which helped the affluent but did little for low- and middle-income Americans who don’t own stocks. Enter Donald Trump, whose deregulation and tax reform unleashed a surge of business investment (before his tariff spree) and hiring, which has drawn workers off the sidelines and raised wages.

The comparative data are striking, and mostly ignored by the press. During the first 11 quarters of the Trump Presidency, wages for the bottom 10% of earners over age 25 rose an average 5.9% annually compared to 2.4% during Barack Obama’s second term, according to the latest demographic data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Wages for the middle two quartiles increased 3.2% compared to 2.2% and 2.7% between 2012 and 2016. Wage gains for the top 10% have held steady at about 3%.

Less educated workers have also seen the strongest gains. Wages have risen at a 6.1% annual clip for workers over 25 without a high school degree and 3.9% for those with some college—both about three times faster than during the second Obama term. Wage gains have also accelerated though to a lesser degree—to 3.2% from 2.2%—for college grads.

Handicapping The Democrat Losers The first is that he has legacy black Democrat support. He’s the closest to a traditional Democrat, as opposed to one of the faculty lounge snobs that makes up most of the rest of the race. The second is that he has been designated The Democrat Most Likely To Succeed in beating The Donald. It’s unclear why. Sure, some polls say it (though they are shifting in Trump’s direction), but the problem for Joe is that so many liberal media types are wishcasting his victory that they never hit him hard.

Then there’s Chief Spewing Bull. Her own brother recently dissed her for inventing more fake family history. Trump would chew her up, spit her out, and wash the residue into the gutter. Where’s the enthusiasm for a serial fraud who compares poorly to every bitter spinster public elementary school teacher who either demanded you use your inside voice or tried to make her class celebrate Kwanza?

General Motors shocks nearly 1,000 temp workers with full-time promotions; Ford promotes 592

Humphrey, 27, has been a part-time temporary worker at GM’s Flint Assembly in Michigan for the last three years. On Sunday morning, he and about 250 of his co-workers crowded into UAW Local 598’s union hall. Most thought they were there for a routine meeting.

But when the local’s president stepped to the mic, the room listened in awed silence.

“He said, ‘As of tomorrow, you guys are full-time seniority employees of GM,’ ” Humphrey said. “There was a gasp in the room for a few seconds. Some of us thought he misspoke. Then, we had to say, ‘No, we heard him right!’ It was amazing.”

Dating After 60 Is Hard – Way is now 63 and still single. She’s in good company: More than one-third of Baby Boomers aren’t currently married. Throughout their adult life, their generation has had higher rates of separation and divorce, and lower rates of marriage in the first place, than the generations that preceded them. And as people are living longer, the divorce rate for those 50 or older is rising. But that longer lifespan also means that older adults, more than ever before, have years ahead of them to spark new relationships. “Some people [in previous cohorts] might not have thought about repartnering,” notes Linda Waite, a sociologist at the University of Chicago. “But they weren’t going to live to 95.”

Consider the term “cisgender,” which denotes a person whose gender identity matches their biological sex. Shriver points out the lunacy of this word’s frequent usage:

Denoting, say, a woman born a woman who thinks she’s a woman, this freighted neologism deliberately peculiarizes being born a sex and placidly accepting your fate, and even suggests that there’s something a bit passive and conformist about complying with the arbitrary caprices of your mother’s doctor. Moreover, unless a discussion specifically regards transgenderism, in which case we might need to distinguish the rest of the population (“non-trans” would do nicely), we don’t really need this word, except as a banner for how gendercool we are. It’s no more necessary than words for “a dog that is not a cat,” a “lamppost that is not a fire hydrant,” or “a table that is actually a table.” Presumably, in order to mark entities that are what they appear to be, we could append “cis” to anything and everything. “Cisblue” would mean blue and not yellow. “Cisboring” would mean genuinely dull, and not secretly entertaining after all.

The U.S. Remained Center-Right, Ideologically, in 2019 WASHINGTON, D.C. — As Americans continued to lean more Democratic than Republican in their party preferences in 2019, the ideological balance of the country remained center-right, with 37% of Americans, on average, identifying as conservative during the year, 35% as moderate and 24% as liberal.

Why Rush Limbaugh’s New Contract Is So Important To the vast disappointment of his critics — and the thankful appreciation of his listeners — Rush Limbaugh is going to be here for a good long while.

Wages Soar Fastest among Those with the Least | Between November 2018 and November 2019, overall median wage growth climbed 3.6 percent, a healthy pace that should lift spirits, too. Those in the bottom 25 percent saw wages advance 4.5 percent, while the top 25 percent lagged, with pay rising just 2.9 percent. This is the 180-degree exact opposite of what Democrats relentlessly bellow. They have equal access to the Atlanta Fed’s website. This confirms their rank dishonesty.

Lesbians are so annoying that we are seriously thinking they should be taxed more than everyone else. Their divorce rate is twice as high as the gay divorce rate, mainly because women hate one another more than any man could ever possibly hate them. Lesbian ministers will do obnoxious things such as mock the very name of Jesus Christ by claiming they are in an open sexual relationship with him. But if you dare to mock their lifestyle, they will cast you into the pit of hell—metaphorically speaking, of course. In the real world, God doesn’t even speak to lesbians, much less let them decide who receives eternal damnation.

Vulnerability Is a Synonym for Weakness – When cultish therapy groups or feminists tell men they “need” to be more vulnerable, men should ask “for me, or for you?” As I watch various men’s improvement groups evolve, I see a lot of all-embracing affirmation language creep in from the social frames of women’s groups. Weakness is strength, obesity is healthy, ugliness is beautiful, losers are winners. “Every conceivable negative is a positive if it makes me feel good in the moment.” How magical it must be to live in a world of lies where all of your faults are re-framed as talents. I can certainly see the allure…

Even Fewer Expect Trump窶冱 Removal From Office – But only 12% now feel it窶冱 more likely that Trump will be impeached and removed from office before serving his first full term. That窶冱 down from a high of 29% when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in late December 2017 and marks a new low.

    Sidebar note regarding certain aged men – I’ll turn 60 in two months, that statement is rather accurate. I’m done with coffee for the day, and I’ve already enjoyed two cigars. Bourbon comes after dinner, along with another cigar. Carry on.

    Consider the term “cisgender,” which denotes a person whose gender identity matches their biological sex.
    In this direction, madness lies.

    And other John, two months; 70.

    Just looked up that negro in the picture above. It is a female pretending to be a male. I kinda wonder what went wrong in that persons life to bring it to the point where it is. Maybe it’s not really a person but rather a partial person. A complete person would not pretend it is anything other than what it is. Only a young child or a mentally damaged adult would lie as this person does. Everyone knows, or should know, that lying means a person is untrustworthy and dishonest and when you are lacking in those things of what value are you? I expect that partial person to regret it’s existence and kill itself, to which I say, “The sooner the better.”, as that may be the only thing the mental defect has done right. Ya know, it’s a really sorry environment where people are encouraged to be the worst they can be. If I ever go into a public men’s restroom and see a women’s hygiene dispenser I will probably render it inoperable by dumping the contents in the shitter.

    I guess it’s all in your self image, Ghost. I’m learning to identify as straightback (non-hunch), de-cleft lip, with unclub feet, bi-sighted, and (kinda’) non-deaf, cis-abled. Not to mention un-young, and nondowns. It’s all very empowering.

    From top of the list:
    “. . . If he says that two and two are five well, two and two are five. This prospect frightens me much more than bombs. — George Orwell wrote those words in 1943 . . . ”

    My wife and I attended a conference (approx, 7 or 8 years ago) which included a presentation by a very knowledgeable man concerning the proposed indoctrination program called *Common Core*. Everyone in attendance probably thought something so bizarre and dishonest as Common Core, could NEVER happen in the USA. A purely Communist indoctrination program to gain total control of our children’s minds and actions for the rest of their lives.

    One of the totally bizarre things I heard the speaker tells us was that “2 plus 2 can equal 5” in Common Core “arithmetic/math”. “The student gets the idea, which is close enough.”

    It totally amazes me that the fools who now have their little kiddies in publik skools find nothing wrong with this common core crap. One parent told me “Well we have to have standards”. Standards to create imbeciles who cannot read, cannot add 2 + 2 and get the correct sum, cannot “decipher” a conventional clock and on and on. The most heinous, evil, rotten social theory ever conceived, was from the twisted mind of Karl Marx. The previous POTUS was a student and admiring follower of the Marx poisons.

    Cisgender? Didn’t that noted contra-feminist Mary Engelbreit once say “Bloom where you are planted?”

    Imagine you send your healthy daughter off to college. She comes back at Thanksgiving time with a thin beard and mustache, perhaps irreparably damaged by the drugs the school staff convinced her she needed. The Tranny mafia found her, brainwashed her, convinced her she had to do this to fulfill her destiny. The school provided the support and the drugs.

    One day soon, some father is going to show up at one of these schools with a rifle, and a list.

    I’ve talked to some of these damaged girls. They have what amounts to a sexual fetish. Their fantasy is to be in a men’s restroom where some man spots that they’re actually a girl, and then all the men gang rape her, convincing her against her will that she really is a girl. Every single one I have talked to has this fantasy in one form or another.

  • John Venlet January 14, 2020, 8:57 AM

    Gordon, I did send a healthy, beautiful, girl off to college, and though she did not come back from college with a thin mustache, she did come back irreparably mentally damaged, as a vegan, spouting deranged nonsense about too many humans, sustainable farms, etc. She has drank deeply the progressive/woke koolaid and laments her being a white person. I’ve attempted to set straight the many errors she espouses via reasoned debate, providing writings which clearly show the foolish errors in her thought processes, etc., to no avail. It breaks my heart. I can do nothing further for her, try though I might. I’ve turned her over to God.

  • ghostsniper January 14, 2020, 9:57 AM

    I can empathize John, and I can only hope for the best for your daughter. Don’t give up hope and never stop trying. Always be who you are to your daughter, let her know you are always her anchor, no matter what. As she matures and experiences life the fakeness of college will slowly fade as the light of reality becomes brighter. You’re fortunate that it’s just veganism, a mostly harmless thing, it could have been much worse. Be a wall, without pressure, providing stability. Be subtle. When it warms up invite her to a big porch party-supper with lots of salad materials. And Dad’s attrociously awesome sirloin burgers mounded up on the platter for anyone to partake….let the vapors have their way with her subliminally.

    Couple years ago my sister told me her 19yo youngest daughter was to attend a college on the other side of the state, North Carolina, and I looked it up. Don’t remember the name of the college right now but I didn’t like what I read about it and told my sister so. The daughter said she wanted to get a degree in journalism and then get a job at the huffpo. sigh Just like that. She had it all mapped out.

    Well, Christmas rolls around a few months later and guess what? The daughter is addicted to krak AND is pregnant (though she didn’t know it yet), and was expelled from the college for fighting and she had been staying at her new boyfriends place ever since. The following Feb my sisters daughter was having severe medical issues presumably from her association with the chemicals and was taken to the emergency room. There, it was discovered she was pregnant and tests determined the thing was dead and they forced the pregnancy. I was speechless when I heard all of this.

    Our son did his 4 year degree in 3 years at a local community college and continued to live with us the whole time, and held a part time job to help pay for all of it. I never understood the rationale behind sending children to distant places for schooling and never entertained the notion that our only child would do such a thing. He was our ONLY child, so we don’t get a 2nd chance at doing this child raising stuff. We HAVE to get it right the first time. Our son is now 40 and he and his wife of 10 years have given us a 5 yo grand daughter that is the twinkle in my wife’s eye, and she is currently being homeschooled and will go to the same community college our son went to.

    Thanks, Ghostsniper.

    Terry, Common Core is just a temporary thing. It will be replaced. With something even worse.

    In the last Linkskrieg : Even Fewer Expect Trump窶冱 Removal From Office – 
    Assuming everyone else sees the two kanji, 窶冱, after Trump and it’s not just the world messing with only my head, dang, Gerard, whatfo they there? In Japanese the first one could mean emancipated, the second cold or clear. From Chinese the best I can come up with is countrified and curdled.

  • James ONeil January 14, 2020, 12:43 PM

    Regarding my post above about the konji, 窶冱, it appears they replace [ ‘s]. ‘ is 10010001 in binary and s is 01010011. So since my machine is set for English & Japanese those binary numbers may be close to, or the same as, the konji. I suspect everybody else saw [,s] while I saw the konji [窶冱].

    OK , it was just the world messing with my head, not everybody else’s.

    I think that Ghost is correct in that we must be the anchor. Forever the anchor until that duty is passed on to the next patriarch in the family. I recently was passed the torch and fully recognize its significance. I intend to honor my father’s legacy and know he will be proud of what he has passed on to my family as well as following generations. I did some rather forgettable things after my first divorce, but there was Dad, ready to accept me back into the family fold. Ready to take back the semi-prodigal son, and even in later years, always the reference for advice on finances, business challenges, other.

    We have our roles and must not shun them in the name of what might be popular culture at the moment. My two monkeys have been fortunate enough to travel the world. We have a fantastic local college, Wichita State, for engineering and business….myself a mid-90’s graduate. They can live at home and graduate without being fully brainwashed or having any debt.
