  • The curious rise of "white left" as a Chinese insult

    Open Democracy ^ | 5/11/17 | Chenchen Zhang
    If you look at any thread about Trump, Islam or immigration on a Chinese social media platform these days, it’s impossible to avoid encountering the term baizuo (白左), or literally, the ‘white left’. It first emerged about two years ago, and yet has quickly become one of the most popular derogatory descriptions for Chinese netizens to discredit their opponents in online debates. So what does ‘white left’ mean in the Chinese context, and what’s behind the rise of its (negative) popularity? It might not be an easy task to define the term, for as a social media buzzword and very...

    The Hill ^ | 5/24/17 | Jonathon Easley
    Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum. According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media. That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online. Much of the media is now just another part of the...

Overall, MSNBC finished second in all of basic cable, only falling to TNT, which aired several NBA playoff games.

    If self-delusion were magic, average liberals would be David Blaine, David Copperfield and Houdini all rolled up into one. Most of what they say has no relation to what theyre doing, the policies they push rarely work and logic might as well be a strange, alien language to them. Since thats the case, explaining all the things liberals get wrong about themselves could easily be the topic of my second book (Heres a link to my first one), but since we only have so much space to work with in a column, here are the top five.1) Liberals Are Better...

    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1 How can a turd of the people still be running around with their hair on fire after six months? It is actually pretty easy they are the fundamentalist of the liberal cult. Their world is worshipping the halls of gummit from morning to night seven days a week. They look at their faith as the only true belief and anyone taking their religion away from them is an infidel who needs to be burned at the stake. This is not a political war but a spiritual one as...
  • Why Kids Should Never Play With Water Guns. Period.

    popsugar.com ^ | May 17, 2017 | LAUREN LEVY
    My mom was pretty relaxed during our childhood and only had a few nonnegotiable, never ever going to change, concrete rules. Her biggest: no water guns. This water gun ban had nothing to do with water shooting toys in general (though with four kids running around it would've made sense that she didn't want the water wars) and everything to do with her firm belief that guns are not toys. We still had all of the same Summer fun, but with water squirters that didn't look like deadly weapons and never trivialized this important topic. We didn't make childhood...

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/13/17 | Ray DiLorenzo
    Liberalism is not just a political point of view, but a world view as religious dogma, complete with sacraments such as man-made global warming, abortion, same-sex marriage and political correctness Thou Shalt Not Murderthe moral imperative in the Ten Commandments. But what if you destroy a person so he or she can no longer function normally? Is that murder in a practical sense? Is that not breaking the spirit of the law? Ok, were not talking about physical murder or a king, for that matter. We are talking about viciously attempting to destroy a presidents ability to perform his constitutional...
  • Fitch cuts Connecticut ratings on dim economy, fiscal constraints

    Reuters ^ | May 12, 2017 | By Hilary Russ
    Fitch Ratings downgraded the state of Connecticut on Friday one notch to A-plus because of a dimming economic outlook and a lack of fiscal flexibility, making it the third-lowest-rated U.S. state on Fitch's roster. The wealthiest U.S. state on a per capita personal income basis, Connecticut's economic growth has been "unusually slow and uncertain" during the current national economic expansion, and the state is expecting weak job growth in coming years, Fitch said. Those chronic economic challenges and Connecticut's high budgetary liabilities have constrained the state's ability to maneuver financially, Fitch analysts said of reasons for the downgrade. Revenue collections...

    The College Fix ^ | May 10, 2017 | by Greg Piper
    It wasnt a Cinco de Mayo party. It had no sombreros or tacos, as far as anyone knows. Yet the University of Chicagos Phi Gamma Delta, known casually as FIJI, has nonetheless been reported for the bias incident of throwing a party where attendees wore construction outfits. Relevant to know: Its fraternity house has been under renovation and construction for two years. But activists dont care about context. If the left-wing arbiters of cultural appropriation get their way, FIJIs members could face disciplinary action. The Chicago Maroon reports that the party was originally scheduled for May 5, but its start...

    "Permission to engage denied," Captain Joni Marquez heard over her communications as she piloted her "eye in the sky" gun ship above the old Chinook helicopter carrying SEAL Team 6 and other Special Ops and National Guard soldiers to help American Rangers in the Wardak Province war zone on August 2, 2011. Marquez soon would see her infrared monitor turn from red to blue as she watched the life spill out of one of our doomed warriors, shot down by the enemy. (Video available at link.) She knew the insurgents she just had seen slinking from this American graveyard hurried...

    http://www.conservapedia.com ^ | unknown | Editorial
    A liberal is someone who craves an increase in government spending, power, and control, such as ObamaCare. Liberals also support the censorship and denial of Christianity. Liberals who are a part of the secular left prefer the atheist religion over the Christian faith, as atheism has no objective morality to hinder their big government plans. Increasingly, liberals side with the homosexual agenda, including homosexual "marriage". Liberals favor a welfare state where people receive endless entitlements without working. The liberal ideology has degenerated into economically unsound views and intolerant ideology. All liberals support, in knee-jerk fashion, the opposite of conservative principles,...

    American Thinker.com ^ | May 3, 2017 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    If you watch TV, you are seeing ads for a new Alien movie (i.e., Alien Covenant). All hail Ridley Scott. This will be the sixth in the franchise. One thing all of the entries have in common is that a ghastly alien emerges, often with pointy teeth and covered in drool, from an egg or an astronaut's chest. This signature sudden, unforgettable moment is the essence of the cinematic covenant. An entirely hostile organism will burst out somewhere when you least expect it and kill you. That has to remind us of the year 1931, when the Education Establishment sprang...

I am only going to ask the simple question: Why Trump? (Skip) I don't think we have a choice but to say the explanation is in the realm of human neurosis, not politics. And make that pretty severe neurosis, almost psychosis. Something about Trump's character and appearance...

    Last year I did an interview with two communist militants in a Chicago Mall Food Court entitled Coffee With Communists, WHO THEY ARE WHY THEY KILL The two were part of a little known Marxist street gang known as Anti-racist Action or Antifa. These disgusting animals wanted to kill Americans and bragged that they had killed Americans, namely veterans. Their message to America, revolution was coming and that those who opposed socialism and opposed their agenda would be violently killed. In the past week Antifa made headlines and is no longer under the radar. In Berkeley and in other cities,...

    In an election year that will rank as perhaps the oddest in history, Donald Trump last fall tweeted his displeasure with an attack from an evangelical leader. What weird corner of the universe are we living in? When Trump said that Southern Baptist leader Russell Moore is a nasty guy, he was referencing a person that only months before had never crossed his path. New York City is far from Nashville, geographically and in every other way. Moore, the president of the SBCs Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, is unlike any other SBC leader before him. A former staffer...

    I just watched Season 2 , Episode 7, of Futurama, on Netflix. In this cute but endemically Leftist cartoon series, Richard Nixon is a recurrent character, always portrayed as a scientifically preserved, living head in a jar. He is always tricky, conniving, and stupid. But in this particular episode he runs for President in the year 3000. He is now depicted as one of the most typically evil, scheming, destructive personalities ever spawned. In factat the endNixon is ultimately transformed into a vicious, two-story tall, death cyborg who rampages around just killing people and crushing automobiles. He apparently does this...
