    Tuesday, September 30, 2014 Science is for Stupid People Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Every ideology needs to believe in its inevitability. Religions get their inevitability from prophecies; secular ideologies get theirs from the modernist fallacy. The modernist fallacy says that history is moving on an inevitable track toward their ideology. Resistance is futile, you will be liberalized. Marxism predicted the inevitable breakdown of capitalism. Obama keeps talking about being “on the right side of history” as if history, like a university history curriculum, has a right side and a wrong side. All everyone has to...
  • Rape Culture Argument Denies Mankind’s Depravity

    09/30/2014 5:18:25 AM PDT · by LeoMcNeil · 7 replies
    The White House and left-wing media are pushing the ridiculous notion that 20% of college girls are raped. They base this statistic off of a highly questionable study at only two universities. In addition, the study included an expanded definition of sexual assault to include what amounts to drunken whore’s remorse. The fact is, one in five college girls are not the victims of sexual assault. Other studies indicate that around one in forty girls are the victims of rape or sexual assault. That number is too high but there’s a massive difference between 2.5% and 20%. One gets headlines,...

    SMH.  Stupidity magnified. Max Fisher, one of vox.com’s favorite fictionists, attributed the gesture of raising your hands (as in surrender or non-aggression) to Ferguson, no matter where in the world, no matter what reason. Hong Kong's protesters are using the same "hands up, don't shoot" gesture used in Ferguson.I’d be willing to guess that the majority of protesters in Hong Kong, who have a real reason to be upset with their Chinese masters, are like the 22-year-old Fisher quoted: One 22-year-old protester told Quartz's Lily Kuo that she had never heard of the events in Ferguson. He goes on to...

    Many people are up in arms about President Obama saluting his Marine retainers with a coffee cup in his right hand. I'm going to defend Obama. It was IMPOSSIBLE for him to switch the cup into his left hand. (We'll note here that Obama was drinking with his right hand - even though he's left-handed.) Google "Islam drinking left hand", my brothers and sisters, and you will learn exactly why the Sunni-In-Chief did as he did. It would behoove us to examine prior videos of The Won in his daily travels:To prefer the left for all lowly or less desirable...
  • 6 Modern Societies Where Women Literally Rule

    Mental Floss ^ | September 29, 2014 | Laura Turner Garrison
    Who runs the world? In these six societies: Girls. By standard definition, a matriarchy is a “family, group or state governed by a matriarch (a woman who is head of a family or tribe).” Anthropologists and feminists have since created more specific classifications for female societies, including the matrilineal system. Matrilineality refers not only to tracing one’s lineage through maternal ancestry, it can also refer to a civil system in which one inherits property through the female line. While the legendary Amazons (probably the most widely known matriarchy) are relegated to mythology, there are a handful of female-led societies...

To quickly review the situation that’s been unfolding in recent weeks, Sean found significant problems in various claims that Tyson makes as part of his public presentations on science. A newspaper headline touted for years by Tyson likely doesn’t exist. The exact quote he uses to bash members of Congress as being stupid also doesn’t exist. The details within one of Tyson’s favorite anecdotes — a story of how he bravely confronted a judge...

    The New American ^ | September 1, 2014 | Selwyn Duke
    “Same sex marriage leads away from polygamy, not for it,” said the Brookings Institution’s Jonathan Rauch in 2012. Joining him was the Economist, which wrote just last year that “gay marriage” to polygamy was “A not-so-slippery slope.” But more and more it seems that these and other crystal-ball watchers have slipped on their own prognostication. Headline Aug. 28, 2014: “Federal Judge Opens Door Further to Group Marriage.” That’s from Breitbart’s Austin Ruse, who reports: The Utah ban made it illegal and punishable by up to five years in prison for anyone to cohabit with someone they are not legally married...

    An Arizona high school football coach was suspended for two games last week for praying with his team. The problem, according to the school, arose after their coach, Tom Brittain, prayed with his team. This is despite the fact that the school, Tempe Preparatory Academy, is state-funded. Freedom of religion only goes so far, according to the school's administration. "He is a man who likes to pray and I don't object to that," said headmaster of the school Dr. David Baum. That said, "he can't do that with our students," Dr. Baum stated bluntly. After a win the previous week,...

    For years, many people have suspected that the New York Fed is more or less controlled by the "too big to fail" banks. Well, now we have smoking gun evidence that this is indeed the case. A very brave lawyer named Carmen Segarra made a series of audio recordings while she was working for the New York Fed. The 46 hours of meetings and conversations that she recorded are being called "the Ray Rice video for the financial sector" because of the explosive content that they contain. What these recordings reveal are regulators that are deeply afraid to do anything...

    Hungry for a means to supplement is budget, the US Forrest Service is proposing new regulations that would allow it to charge visitors $1500 if they want to take pictures in wilderness areas. Liz Close, the Forest Service’s acting wilderness director, called the new fees “essential to our mission. These wilderness areas belong to the government. Why shouldn’t we get revenue from what is our property?” Close warned against thinking that “these areas are too vast for us to enforce collection. We are watching from both the ground and the air.

    Subtitle: the umpteenth confirmation that governments shouldn't be entrusted with our money. This was reported last July, but I've only learned about it now. It's got to be covered, it's too absurd to miss. On 10 July 2014, the Daily Mail reported the planned axing of a wind turbine built with taxpayers' money - almost Ł50,000 - and generating only an average of Ł5 of electricity a month. It was calculated that it would have required 757 years before its cost was offset. I'm tempted to say that this must be the most absurd wind turbine ever but, given...

    Inside EVs ^ | September 28, 2014 | Mark Kane
    The BMW i8 is a rather unusual car, not only because of its look and drivetrain, but also because it can apparently earn money for its owner. According to Motoring Research, one of the early BMW i8 owners was able to sell his car used for Ł140,000, or almost 50% over Ł95,000 post-grant price! He earned Ł45,000 ($73,000) in just over a month. The reason, which makes used i8s so expensive, lies in high demand limited by the low production target set by BMW. “Specialist finance house Magnitude Finance arranged the deal. One of its customers was reportedly desperate to...

    While job creation can be a badge of honor for many politicians, a report praising Michigan for adding "green jobs" is a bit premature. Environmental Entrepreneurs, which describes itself as "a national community of business leaders who promote sound environmental policy that builds economic prosperity," released a recent report that stated, “Michigan ranks third in clean energy and clean transportation jobs announced in second quarter.” The news made the rounds on social media and the announcement was re-Tweeted by former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm. The report, however, is not based on actual jobs created. It’s based on jobs “announced” by...

I was encouraged yesterday by a person whom I did not expect to be following such news asking me if I had heard about “those Goldman Sachs tapes”. It was a sweet moment. “Yes,” I said....

    The major thrust of the books on West’s list — namely that Roosevelt’s cabinet and much of the federal bureaucracy was filled with Communists, fellow travelers, dupes and “useful idiots,” and that at the very least this influenced an FDR agenda that proved heavily favorable towards “Uncle Joe” Stalin and the Soviet Union, enabling its expansion and increasing its sphere of influence well beyond its borders — leads to a total paradigm shift when thinking about the World War II era. It bears noting that in “American Betrayal,” West herself seeks to draw a parallel between the modern-day whitewashing of...

    This is no "Marketplace Fairness Act". It is an atrocity. The Internet Tax is an “Unfair” Revenue Grabber. Discussion began heating up again about the “internet tax” last week when lawmakers pushed back the moratorium on Internet access taxes—set to expire on Nov. 1—until mid-December during the lame-duck session. In the meantime, let’s call it out for what it really is: a revenue grabber masquerading as “fairness”. Last year the Senate passed the online sales tax bill, formally known as the “Marketplace Fairness Act”. There is nothing fair about this act. It is a back-door way for states to add...

In an article published yesterday, "OWS" declares that America has suffered through a "Summer of White Supremacy." Referencing Ferguson, Detroit, and "white cops," the article explains that throughout the United States, white people are oppressing black people as much as they can. Not only is it the police, but racist elected officials in the government are doing the same... The same anger toward whites and Republicans is seen...

Calling Sharia’s thugs “maniacs and depraved humans, Lambie said, “…they won’t stop committing cold blooded butchery and rapes until every woman in Australia wears a burqa.” But Lambie was just getting started. She continued her counter attack on Sharia’s supporters by blaming them for, “every major terrorist attack on the Western world. The 9/11s, the Bali...

    Michigan Supreme Court Justice Stephen Markman wants state lawmakers to clarify statutes that criminalize administrative offenses. Offenders are often surprised when they are charged with a “strict liability public welfare offense” because it is not obvious the act is a crime. Michigan has a number of such statutes on the books, such as driving a snowmobile that is too loud or modifying private property that a regulator may view as a protected wetland. The acts are often misdemeanors punishable by a fine, but if convicted the offenders have a criminal record, impeding their ability to find a job or get...

Today, the U.S. national debt is sitting at a grand total of about 17.7 trillion dollars, so when we are talking about 40 trillion dollars we are talking about an amount of money that is almost unimaginable. And unlike stocks and bonds, these derivatives do not represent "investments"...

    Best of luck to the newlyweds, it looks like they were made for each other. While liberal hypocrite George Clooney prances around the world on private jets demanding energy poverty for the masses in the name of “global warming”, his new wife Amal Alamuddin has called for the notoriously anti-Semitic UN Human Rights Council to investigate Israel for war crimes over its latest military incursion in Gaza. “I am horrified by the situation in the occupied Gaza Strip, particularly the civilian casualties that have been caused, and strongly believe that there should be an independent investigation and accountability for crimes...

    Sunday, September 28, 2014 A Nigerian Prince Called Islam Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Say that you get a tempting offer from a Nigerian prince and decide to invest some money in helping him transfer his vast fortune from Burkina Faso or Dubai over to the bank across the street. The seemingly simple task of bringing over the 18 million dollars left to him by his father hits some snags which require you to put in more and more of your own money. Eventually you have invested more than you ever would have ever done up...

    SEPTEMBER 28, 2014 Al Sharpton Empowered Eric Holder’s legacy: Enabling Sharpton’s “I have a scheme” civil-rights agenda By John Fund & Hans von Spakovsky As Eric Holder prepares to leave as attorney general, there is a fierce debate over his six-year tenure. Many conservative senators who voted to confirm him in 2009 now regret it. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, now zings Holder’s “lack of respect for Congress, the American taxpayer, and the laws on the books.” Even some of his supporters agree he’s been confrontational and polarizing. Juan Williams of Fox News rails...

    Practically from the moment after September 11, 2001, people started saying that the most effective way to fight Muslims was to lace American ammunition with pork. Finally, in 2013, an Idaho company came up with pork-laced ammunition for non-military customers: Jihawg Ammo today announced release of the industry’s first truly defensive ammunition.Not only does Jihawg guarantee that all of their ammunition meets or exceeds S.A.A.M.I. standards for velocity, penetration, and accuracy, they also coat each projectile with a special ballistic paint infused with pork to make it “Haraam” or unclean to a radical Jihadist.This makes Jihawg Ammo the only commercially...

    Should he have switched hands? Dropped the cup? Not drank the coffee? Declared war on coffee growers? Any way, the right woulda whacked him.Since his inauguration, Republicans have criticized President Obama for everything. For launching military strikes. For not launching military strikes. For taking vacations. For being too uptight. For fist-bumping. For being too detached. You name it. Progressives and those who simply like fair-minded political debate have alleged that the actual facts of President Obama’s actions are irrelevant, that Republicans who were determined to oppose everything the president did from Day One would criticize his every move no matter...

    It was rather crowded outside Lincoln Center late Monday afternoon. While yours truly was at Kennedy Airport waiting to return to Israel for Rosh HaShanna, several thousand people gathered outside Lincoln Center to protest the Metropolitan Opera's glorification of a terror attack that took place nearly 30 years ago. There's an extensive report with over an hour and a half of video and many pictures and slides here, and I urge you all to check it out. But I want to share one quote with you that really caught me eye. And finally, from writer, Jack Kemp: “One of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)INDIANAPOLIS, In (Sept 28th, 2014) –In the wake of the weekend shooting of a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, the Indianapolis-based Ten Point Coalition may move up its proposed trip to the trouble-plagued St. Louis suburb to help the community prepare for more fallout from the killing of teenager Michael Brown by police. “We’re talking to several ministerial groups in Ferguson about us coming a little quicker than we had planned,” said Rev. Charles Harrison. “We’re scheduled to be there the ninth and tenth of October, which is a Thursday and Friday, but we may need to get there a...

    Most businesses offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on their goods or services. We have heard about it all time, most of us even taken advantage of this offer from time to time. In light of this, it would be interesting to ask whether the U.S. Chamber of Commerce offers the same level of guarantee to their members that the rest of us get from them. Because if they do, it is about time their members start asking for their money back. Members of the Chamber join because they need a voice in Washington to fight against the federal intrusion we...

    Did you know a handgun could expire? If not, you are probably not from California. Effective January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice. Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement. This is the California-compliant tactile loaded chamber indicator. Before a new handgun can be sold in California, it must first be...

He's an ex-nuc, if you've ever read Blind Man's Bluff, his boat was the subject of one of the stories in the book (he won't tell me which one, which is how it should be). In spite of the fact that he glows gently in the dark, I respect him a great deal. Which is why I was surprised when he posted a link to this article and indicated his approval.
