    Full title: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Picks And Chooses Which Parts of Her Life to Highlight – But Here's What She Left Out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Congressional candidate from New York, hit the scene a few months ago and quickly became the face of the future of the Democratic Party. Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years....

    Years from now, perhaps only days from now, when people are no longer quite so inebriated with partisanship, those who wish Brett Kavanaugh well and those who wish him ill will probably agree on one thing: His defiant September 27 statement denying the charges leveled against him in the course of his Supreme Court confirmation is the defining speech of our time. Kavanaugh rejected outright Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation that he had jumped her and gagged her at a party 36 years ago, when both were in high school. He denied knowingly having met her. None of the witnesses she...

    Another name for the neo-Marxism of increasing popularity in the United States is cultural Marxism.” This theory says that the driving force behind the socialist revolution is not the proletariat — but the intellectuals. Marxist theory flourishes today in cultural institutions, in the academic world, and in the mass media. This “cultural Marxism” goes back to Antonio Gramsci and the Frankfurt School. ... The believers of neo-Marxism are mainly intellectuals. Nowhere was socialism established as the result of a labor movement... The leaders of the revolution have been intellectual party politicians and military men. It was up to the writers...

    Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said. Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is...

    -snip- Alessandro Strumia, the physicist in question and a professor at Pisa University in Italy, gave his presentation to a crowd at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), one of the word's most important nuclear physics organizations. The topic of the day was gender in physics, and the crowd was mostly composed of women, according to The Guardian. Over the course of several slides of his presentation, which are available online, Strumia laid out an IQ-based argument for disparities between men and women in physics. "Physics graduates have top IQ," he wrote. "It's needed." He pointed to a study that...

    We all see there is an abnormal amount of tension in today’s political discourse. Also, many see deep, inherent problems in the progressive’s worldview, also known as cultural Marxism. It’s important to understand the inherent problems in many of the policies that the progressives advocate today and why these policies automatically lead to increased levels of antagonism, and maybe even to a violent future that will harm us all. Economic Marxism, as practiced in the USSR and Communist China, followed the following pattern. • The Marxists said their laws would make the world a better place. They said that compassion...
  • The New Bulverism

    08/06/2018 11:08:48 AM PDT · by Rurudyne · 10 replies
    The New Bulverism Recently I’ve been commenting on how the idea of “Bulverism” as put forward by C.S.Lewis and how it has developed in the hands of the Left. If you haven’t come across the term, Bulverism is a rhetorical tactic in any discussion that seeks to render any opinion or view as being the result of something about a person, and therefore render it invalid. So if someone were to say “you only think that because you’re a man” or some other insert here "because you're (snip)" then they are positioning themselves to never have to deal with any...

    Catholics Have No Obligation to Follow Francis’ Green-Left Agenda - Cardinal Müller Catholics are not obliged to follow Pope Francis’s green-left agenda in opposing fossil fuels and favouring agreements on environmental issues, Cardinal Gerhard Müller has told The Weekend Australian (July 27). Müller is in Sydney to address the Australian Confraternity of Catholic Clergy conference. "We are not a green party", he added, "Environmental policy is nothing to do with faith and morals. Those issues are for politicians and for people to vote for the party they agree with." “Bishops are not scientists, environmental experts or politicians." Müller recommended that...

    Thirty-three years ago, when I entered college, left-wing ideologies dominated American universities, and especially the humanities and social sciences. But one still could get a fair, balanced education by consulting traditional canonical texts that countered the dogma. Free speech was alive on college campuses. There were hisses and boos, of course, but for the most part, hearing perspectives different from your own was considered essential to your education. Few of us lived in our own curated silos. Today, after 22 years of being a college professor, and having traveled much of America to lecture, I am sad to say the...

    For more than a century, St. Catherine of Siena Church was a cornerstone of the Charlestown neighborhood, a close-knit parish that seemed impervious to the change that swirled around it. When the Catholic church closed a decade ago, it took a piece of the old Charlestown with it, residents said. It had stood vacant ever since. But now, the church has taken on new life — if a decidedly secular one — as a haven for bargain shoppers known as Dollar Tree. Where parishioners used to receive communion, patrons now peruse aisles for food, toys, party supplies, and other discounted...

    Former Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, said Monday he was not responsible for a racially inflammatory post that stirred up a storm on social media, and said it was posted by a staffer. “Earlier today a staff member inadvertently posted an offensive cartoon on my social media,” he tweeted. “I do not make my own social media posts and when I discovered the mistake it was immediately deleted. - Ron Paul.” The cartoon pictured caricatures of ethnic minorities all punching Uncle Sam under the words “CULTURAL MARXISM!” The caption on the tweet read, “Are you stunned by what has become of...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul tweeted out a racist and anti-Semitic cartoon Monday before swiftly deleting it amid a backlash on social media. The cartoon featured a range of minorities depicted in stereotypical terms—including a Jewish man with a hooked nose, a black man with large lips as well as portrayals of Asians and Latinos. The four men are shown punching up at an Uncle Sam figure together with a speech bubble that reads, “Cultural Marxism!” Together, with the cartoon, Paul wrote: “Are you stunned by what has become of American culture? Well, it’s not an accident. You’ve probably...

    How many times do we have to learn that socialism doesn't work, that, as Margaret Thatcher said, at some point you run out of "other people's money," that sooner or later all the teary idealism, the stirring strains of The Internationale, devolve into gulags and death squads? Wasn't the Soviet Union enough, Communist China, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, etc....? Now those death squads appear to have surfaced in Venezuela, the wealthiest country in Latin America before Hugo Chavez brought his brand of socialism to the then oil-rich nation. Venezuelan security forces have carried out hundreds of arbitrary killings under the...

    Last month, Professor Bret Weinstein gave testimony before Congress on his experience at Evergreen State College and what he believes it means for our future as a nation. Weinstein posted video of his testimony on YouTube last week (see below). Here’s a bit of what he said: Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the day that 50 Evergreen students–students that I had never met–disrupted my class, accusing me of racism and demanding my resignation. I tried to reason with them. I felt no fear because I knew that, whatever my failings might be, bigotry was not among them… The...

    The Boy Scouts will ensure that condoms will be made 'readily and easily accessible' at its global gathering this summer, it has been revealed. Rules now require that the host organization of the World Scout Jamboree provide condoms at a 'number of locations' for staff and participants during the event. Leaders of the participating organizations must also communicate the policy to their 'participants, unit leaders, and contingent staff', the mandate requires. The 24th World Scout Jamboree will be held in the mountains of West Virginia from July 21 to August 1, 2019.

    By 2014, California was the top state in eighth-grade algebra enrollment. Common Core erased all those gains almost immediately ... Before Common Core came along, California parents, faculty, and officials spent years developing some of the best-ranked K-12 math requirements in the nation. One result of their careful work was more than tripling the number of eighth graders who ranked proficient in math, and quadrupling the number of eighth graders taking algebra. By 2014, California was the top state in the nation in eighth-grade algebra enrollment. That was the year Common Core went into place. It erased all those gains...
