    Today’s news comes from South Africa, where the leader of the Marxist-Revolutionary Economic Freedom Fighters,  Julius Malema respectively, is on the path of changing South Africa’s constitution, so the land owned by white farmers can be confiscated/expropriated sans compensation. That’s what all socialist/communist regimes do when they get the power (wealth redistribution by force), so this is nothing new really for someone who knows basic 20th century history. The  ruling majority party ANC, also marxist/left wing, called for the same thing, i.e. the confiscation of farm land from whites. The vast majority of blacks living in South Africa want revenge...

    The Village of Shorewood Hills is an upscale bedroom community on the shore of lake Mendota, surrounded by Madison, Wisconsin, Lake Mendota, and the University of Wisconsin, Madison. On 23 February, 2018, Jonathan M. Fitzgerald showed some parental concern. Jonathan, who is a 35 year old graduate student in a Ph.D program of molecular and cellular pharmacology, was buzzed into the school and calmly walked to his child's classroom. There he handed a piece of cardboard with the word "Gun" written on it to the teacher. From madison.com: Shorewood Hills Police Chief Aaron Chapin said Jonathan M. Fitzgerald, 35,...

    So, Mr. President, what's the holdup in fixing the DoJ? It’s time—in fact, it’s long, past time. The F.B.I. has been a “Bureau on the Bubble” for, at least, the last two years. The bubble has burst. The role of those persons in the Department of Justice (DoJ) “Who helped Barack Obama avoid the taint of Chicago corruption?” has been known since June 2016.

    It's high time to Tweet Twitter out of civil society. The only way to do so is to send what Twitter is doing to babies and cops viral by contacting all of those on your contact lists Pathologically hypocritical Twitter executives see fit to warn users about pictures of unborn babies as “potentially sensitive media”, but allow free range to ex-professor cop hater Michael Isaacson, who calls the 18 officers killed thus far in 2018: “pig death stats”. Squeamish about baby-in-the-womb pictures posted online by Conservative writers and pro-life advocates, Twitter undertakes to be squeamish on behalf of their users...

    Ah, Baltimore. The other city that never sleeps, primarily because its homicide rate is the highest in the country. Also interestingly, it’s a city big on gun control. How could a city with strict gun laws have such a high murder rate? I thought having more firearm laws would save lives. But true to the form of the insane, Baltimore is going to keep pushing forward with the idea that doesn’t work and promote gun restrictions by busing school children to Washington D.C. in order to participate in the March for Our Lives event this month. Not just a class,...

    I was reading an article on the NYT site (related to yesterday’s post but not good enough to bother linking) when this headline popped up in their annoying animated sidebar feature:  “You Won’t Look Like Sharon Stone at 59.” Of course not, you morons – Sharon Stone doesn’t even look like Sharon Stone at 59.Which is not to say she isn’t gorgeous as she assuredly is, but nobody, I don’t care how much high grade cosmetic surgery, fillers, plumpers and Botox you’ve had, looks like they did as a 30-something three decades hence. I knew this was click-bait  but clicked...

    Do Americans have the right to own a gun? Of course we do. It’s in our Second Amendment: “The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Supreme Court has already overturned several gun control laws within the last decade alone. They determined that the banning of guns were unconstitutional. Yet there are still some people who argue for stricter gun control policies. They insist that gun ownership leads to gun-related crimes and that banning guns can reduce violent crime. However the statistics have proven time and time again that the rate of violent...

    WAPO ^ | March 6, 2018 | Elizabeth Bruenig
    In the United States, we’ve arrived at a pair of mutually exclusive convictions: that liberal, capitalist democracies are guaranteed by their nature to succeed and that in our Trumpist moment they seem to be failing in deeply unsettling ways. For liberals — and by this I mean inheritors of the long liberal tradition, not specifically those who might also be called progressives — efforts to square these two notions have typically combined expressions of high anxiety with reassurances that, if we only have the right attitude, everything will set itself aright. Hanging on and hoping for the best is certainly...

    For those who have ever had an election go against their wishes (and at some point, it must have happened to us all), it’s time to accept the harsh reality of what living in under a democratic voting system really means. Those that don’t, do a disservice to the whole of society. 2016 saw two major “upsets” in the political sphere… the election of Donald Trump, and the Brexit vote. It was to be expected that the media and the losing side on both of the “earthquakes” would be angry, and that they would come back and campaign harder than...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Losing yet? – Buckle your seat belts, it’s gonna be a rocky few days – and maybe more than that – on the stock markets. The resignation of President Trump’s Chief Economic Adviser, Gary Cohn, pretty much ensures that. Cohn’s resignation creates uncertainty in the direction of economic policy, and if there is one thing investors hate more than anything else, it’s uncertainty where policy is concerned. Cohn announced he will be leaving in a few weeks after the President made the decision to move forward with tariffs...

    Any trick shooter out there? Have you ever split a playing card with a bullet before? Youtuber 22Plinkster using a Victory .22 pistol tries out his marksmanship by not just shooting at the playing card but to raise this to another level in top gun. That is to place a Glock 19 barrel in front of the playing card. Now shoot through the barrel to get to the playing card. Even though 22Plinkster had to try this shot over 2 times, its still an amazing feat. Thank goodness for video slow-motion technology. See the full trick shot splitting a card...

    The incumbent Ted Cruz has a strong challenger in Beto O'Rourke for the coveted Lone Star State Senate seat in November's General Election. Ted cruised to victory while Beto roared and showed he's ready for a showdown. Texas Republican U.S.Senate incumbent Ted Cruz will face Democrat challenger Beto O'Rourke after both won their respective party's primary ballot Tuesday night. The headliner on the Texas ballot was the race for the United States Senate seat held by incumbent Ted Cruz, the junior senator winding down his first term. Cruz had four opponents in the Republican Primary. Cruz had more than 80...

    Authorities are so far refusing to point to racism as a motive after a black man who vowed to shoot up a school and “kill all white people” reportedly murdered six random white people along biking trails in Kansas City, Missouri. According to this, police say 22-year-old Frederick Demond went on a random killing spree last August, leaving six strangers dead along walking and biking paths. Five were middle-aged white men, while one victim was a homeless white woman. All six had been shot with a handgun. Scott was indicted for all six murders late last week. The Washington Post...

    Last night another shoe dropped in the Russian "collusion" mystery which largely completed the puzzle of the dossier. We learned of the massive financial tie between Alexander Downer and the Clinton's: Former Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer’s role in securing $25 million in aid from his country to help the Clinton Foundation fight AIDS is chronicled in decade-old government memos archived on the Australian foreign ministry’s website. Downer and former President Clinton jointly signed a Memorandum of Understanding in February 2006 that spread out the grant money over four years for a project to provide screening and drug treatment to AIDS...

    The practice of lawmakers bunking in their offices is unsanitary — and an abuse of taxpayer funds, according to members of the Congressional Black Caucus. A bloc of House Democrats is calling for an ethics investigation into the widespread practice of lawmakers sleeping in their offices, arguing it's an abuse of taxpayer funds. More than two dozen members of the Congressional Black Caucus signed on to a letter obtained by POLITICO to Ethics Committee Chairwoman Susan Brooks (R-Ind.) and ranking member Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) asking for a probe into the “legality and propriety” of such conduct by members of Congress....

    Fox New’s Steve Hilton recently aired a segment on his show The Next Revolution about the Convention of States project, and it’s a great way to learn about this revolution that’s sweeping the nation. “The late Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis was famous for promoting the idea of federalism. He liked to refer to the states as ‘laboratories of democracy’ where individual states could pioneer their own ideas on issues like education and welfare. But, we seem to be heading in the exact opposite direction today. Government is getting more and more centralized in Washington D.C. Now, there’s a new...

    If you’re a news hound like yours truly, this may not seem like breaking news to you, but what’s interesting is that despite Donald Trump’s first year in office which proved to be a boon for the rich cats (the stock market breaking record after record, the economy booming, jobs coming back, unemployment at historic lows, juicy tax cuts for corporations etc.), who by the way also own the mainstream media, 2018 seems to look a lot like 2017 in terms of the TV networks’ incredibly biased and hostile approach to the POTUS. According to a recent study courtesy of...
