  • Is America Really Coming Apart, As Charles Murray Suggests?

    A new Rasmussen poll reports that a majority of voters think so, and it certainly feels that way. Since Donald Trump’s election in November, the pace and intensity of deeply divisive rhetoric has accelerated. Antifa and the Alt-Right are literally fighting in the streets. Combative talking heads on cable news, vicious social media exchanges, riots at universities, a bitter special election in Georgia, and even the shooting of a congressman have both sides rethinking the entire political process and talking about abandoning the “rule of law.” It is an uneasy time, a time for hard questions. Can politics really provide...
  • There have probably been trillions of alien civilizations, and yet we may still never see one

    Sorry, everybody. We’re just not that special. In more than five decades of scanning the heavens, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) has found no sign of alien life. Yet now two American astronomers, in the scientific equivalent of a back-of-the-envelope calculation, are estimating that over the course of its history the universe has seen at least half a trillion technologically advanced species. Remember, 420 billion intelligent civilizations is the “pessimistic” estimate. But sadly—or happily, depending on your view of aliens—it doesn’t make us any less alone.
  • Watch: Is Montel Williams a Shill for Big Pharma, Or Just an idiot?

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    In a recent interview with CNN’s Newsroom with Brook Baldwin, Montel Williams took the opportunity to express how angry he feels about the new Health Care Act. And while debate from every side should be present in the formulation of legislation, his comments suggest that he is either willfully ignoring the acts, or is perhaps just ignorant. In the opening lines he says: “They (the Republicans) want to go back and see if they can find a less expensive medication; well the bottom line is There Is No Less Expensive Medication”. And then goes on to say that they are...

Now it’s Mark Zuckerberg.

  • 2016: Minneapolis City Council's Tearful, Anti-Trump, Pro-Muslim Resolution

    Shortly after the presidential election, the Minneapolis City Council introduced and passed a resolution declaring "solidarity" with their Muslim community. Using the #resist narrative following the election of President Trump, it seems to also have been an attempt to deflect from the mass stabbing at the mall in St. Cloud which garnered national attention and again highlighted the violent tendencies of some Muslims in the population.

    If Cheech & Chong of the Massachusetts Legislature can agree on passage of a compromise marijuana bill, there is nothing they cannot do. Cheech & Chong were, of course, the pair of old stoners from the '70s and '80s whose marijuana movie "Up in Smoke" became something of a cult film classic. The movie is about smoking weed, and it mellowed out an entire generation. The lyrics of the movie's theme song go like this:

    Scandals: The past few days have seen several interesting developments on the supposed Trump/Russia scandal. But instead of causing further damage to President Trump, they're making the entire story look like a multilayered smear campaign by Trump's enemies. Over the weekend, the New York Post reported that the firm behind the infamous Trump dossier — Fusion GPS — has been stonewalling the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has been trying to get information on who paid the firm to produce it and how it was used by government officials. It has been publicly known since at least early January that Fusion...

    Two fake reporters and a fake editor resigned from CNN on Monday amid the fallout from the #fakenews network’s having to retract and apologize for yet another fake story on what it likes to call “RussiaGate”. Interestingly, one of the fake reporters, a guy named Eric Lichtbau, had recently come to CNN from the equally fake NYTimes. Apparently, infesting the already fake CNN with the “standards” of the NYTimes only served to compound fakery on top of fakery. But don’t worry about CNN – journalism schools turn out thousands of great fake journalists every semester, so they’ll be able to...
  • [Secret Memos] Did the FBI retaliate against Michael Flynn by launching Russia probe?

    06/26/2017 5:01:09 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 52 replies
    The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews. Flynn’s intervention on behalf of Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was highly unusual, and included a letter in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationary, a public interview in 2015 supporting Gritz’s case and an offer to testify on her behalf. His offer put him as a hostile...

    In short the 45-year-old Canadian Prime Minister should grow up, ditch the Selfies and get real. Proving that socks really are for puppets, Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used his as a kind of Islamic flag worn on the feet at yesterday’s Gay Pride parade in Toronto. The Ramadan socks Trudeau sported, with his official photographer in tow, promote a so-called ‘religion’ that cavalierly throws gays to their deaths from the tops of tall buildings. “Text on the socks read “Eid Mubarak,” honouring the religious holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, which coincides...

    The breathless headline at Buzzfeed this morning reads “CNN Is Imposing Strict New Rules On Its Russia Coverage”. Wow. “Strict new rules,” huh? What must those be? Well, if you read the actual story itself – which we know that most of Buzzfeed’s short attention-span browsers won’t, you find that these “strict new rules” involve CNN’s fake journalists having to – gasp! – check with a couple of editors before rushing their unsourced fake stories to the CNN fakenews website. What this tell us, if you understand what’s happening here, is that, prior to the issuance of this memo, CNN’s...

    Thank heavens Representative Steve Scalise has gone from critical to fair condition. The Scalise office says he “continues to make good progress.” While we are elated with this news, some Liberals have actually been quoted as saying, “I am glad he was shot.” Just as Loretta Lynch called for blood in the streets to fight Republicans, other Liberals are also calling for the same. In case you did not hear Lynch, you must review this shocking video. She is under investigation for her role in the protection of Hillary Clinton during the investigation of her emails, and I think she...

    The whole “CalExit” secession movement might be dead for the time being, but California’s radical leftist political class remains intent on separating their state from the rest of the U.S. in every way imaginable. Despite being so near insolvency that Governor Jerry Brown has had to beg the federal government for massive monetary assistance no fewer than four times during the first half of 2017, the state’s Attorney General, the execrable Xavier Becerra, announced on Friday that he was adding four more states to California’s own travel ban. This travel ban prevents state employees from traveling to other states in...

    A University of Delaware professor is under a barrage of fire for social media posts stating Otto Warmbier, who passed away after 18 months of brutality from the North Korean regime, “got exactly what he deserved” for being a privileged, white male and his type “think nothing of raping drunk girls at frat parties and snorting cocaine.” “Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?” Professor Katherine Dettwyler wrote on her Facebook page. “He went to North Korea, for f*ck’s sake, and then acted like a spoiled, naive, arrogant US college student who...

    America seems to be on the brink of something dramatic. Something significant. Perhaps revolutionary. A summer of rage appears more and more likely as the nation remains bitterly divided and irreparably torn due to outlandish partisanship. The political elite and their good friends in the powerful Deep State are being threatened by the Trump administration that, for all its faults, is at least exposing the Deep Swamp that really runs Washington. The old political order is being upended by Trump’s rise to power and the media elite still haven’t figured out how to adapt. During this time of transformation, people...

    Oh, noes! Not Nancy! – San Fran Nan, defending herself from a rising movement to replace her as House Minority Leader in the wake of Tuesday’s humiliating loss in Georgia’s HD 6, held a bumbling, stumbling, mumbling press conference on Thursday. During the presser, she repeated herself constantly, flailed about for words, and finally blurted out the following: “I always, always, always quote Martin Luther King in so many ways. But in this score, he said, Dr. Mar— he said, the ballot, the ballot, the ballot, legislation, legislation, legislation, your life, your life, your life.” Trouble, Dr. King never said...

    Essex County College professor Lisa Durden was indefinitely suspended two days after a fiery and belligerent appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight. On Tucker Carlson’s June 6 program, Durden launched a fierce defense of a black-only Black Lives Matter Memorial Day party restricting whites from attending based solely on their skin color. Carlson challenged her position, asking why it’s okay to exclude people based on their race. “I thought the whole point of Black Lives Matter, or one of the points, would be to speak out against singling people out on the basis of their race and punishing them...
