  • Liberal condescension at college - how can I go on?

    Start lobbying your state legislature. Make the point that the purpose of the state subsidizing higher education is so that students will be able to get better jobs than with just a high school diploma.

    The list the majors offered by your school, and job placement in those majors six months after graduation. Then a simple question to your state legislators:

    “If these college majors do not improve either the lives of students, or our economy; in fact leaving many students deeply in debt; then *why* is the state subsidizing them?”

    Stop giving schools money to impoverish and indoctrinate. Make them clean up their act.

    In related news:

    Federal drug agents and Tempe police detectives have seized 30,000 fentanyl pills during an enforcement operation against a drug trafficking organization related to a Mexican cartel.

    They say the pills were discovered after a traffic stop during a DEA operation on Sunday.

    A search of a vehicle led to the discovery of the fentanyl-laced pills, which authorities say were designed to look like oxycodone pills.

    “This massive seizure removed thousands of potentially lethal doses of this powerful narcotic off the streets,” said Doug Coleman, special agent in charge of the DEA in Arizona. “DEA will never relent in its pursuit of Mexican cartels who manufacture huge quantities of fake oxycodone pills using fentanyl.”

    The agency said the investigation had been targeting a drug trafficking organization related to the Sinaloa drug cartel.

    Pharmaceutical fentanyl is legal in the United States and is prescribed to cancer patients with severe chronic pain. It is approximately 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times more potent than heroin.

    The pills recovered by the DEA on Sunday were blue in color and stamped with an “M” and “30,” similar to counterfeit oxycodone pills found in Arizona earlier this year.

    The Arizona Department of Health Services reported a total of 790 Arizonans died in 2016 from opioid overdoses, an increase of 74 percent since 2012.

    Let me interject by saying that Ben Carson has been one of the best cabinet officers in the US government in decades. His willingness to tackle extremely complicated problems, slash voluminous amounts of red tape, and cut billions of dollars in waste bode very well for the future, and his future career in government.

    The only question becomes, once he has cleaned out that Aegean stables, where can he best be put next? Secretary of the Treasury to audit the FED?

    This type of random assassination is exactly why we need to be very apprehensive about the Santa Muerte cult. Overnight they could become a cult like the Thuggee in India, randomly and indiscriminately murdering others without warning. But ten times larger than the Thuggee ever were.

    The BLM and communist left crowd could never hope to be as fearsome with that tactic, just annoying and easily subdued.

    I think the best way to ‘heal’ the White House comes from the Attorney General. That is, by convening grand juries and issuing indictments by the bushel basket.

    Right now, there should be a hundred such indictments pending, after the presentation of evidence to grand juries.

    So, get on it, Mr. Sessions.

    Important note: Republicans have 2/3rds majority in both houses of the Missouri legislature. So it should be very easy to first vote to censure, then vote to expel.

    Assuming they have the political will to do so.

    Oddly enough, they just had an election to fill a vacant seat in their senate.

  • Trump resurrects tall tale about General Pershing and Muslims after Barcelona terror attack

    yefragetuwrabrumuy to EveningStar

    General Pershing himself *did not* order anything like this. However, his subordinate generals were not as gentlemanly.

    To explain, during the US Civil War, The Lieber Code of April 24, 1863, also known as Instructions for the Government of Armies of the United States in the Field, General Order Number 100, or Lieber Instructions, was an instruction signed by US President Abraham Lincoln to the Union Forces of the United States during the American Civil War that dictated how soldiers should conduct themselves in wartime. Its name reflects its author, the German-American legal scholar and political philosopher Franz Lieber.

    The original General Order Number 100 was a very tough document, and was very clear how captured enemy and civilians were to be treated. And if they misbehaved how they could be punished. And the US Army was still using its guidance during the Philippine Insurrection.

    Which at times was exceptionally brutal.

    If you want to read about some of the harshest parts of the insurrection, there is a pdf article from Army History Magazine, called The Violent End of Insurgency on Samar (starting on page 30).

    (shortened link in case the parentheses confuse your browser)

    Oddly enough, the Lieber Code was eventually used as the basis of much of the later Geneva Conventions.

  • Time for Trump to start a third party(no RINOs allowed) (Vanity)

    It took ending slavery to finally kill the Whig party and replace it with the Republican party. The Whig leadership, much like today’s RINOs, could not abide ending slavery, “because it is good for business”.

    Today’s Whigs are not Republicans. Instead they want an internationalist Corporatocracy, a world run by corporations. While utterly contemptuous of socialists, they still hope to use them as useful idiots, to compel the public to pay for its own needs to keep them working for the corporations.

    That is, taxation to fund their own retirements, and taxation to fund their own health care, and taxation to educate them just enough to be workers, not thinkers or individuals, just tools. And if they are not suitable to be workers, then to exterminate them.

    If you’ve ever seen the 1975 movie Rollerball (not its idiotic remake), that is exactly what RINOs *want* the world to be. A restoration of feudalism, but with them as the nobility, and everyone else being peasant workers. Rule by ruthless hereditary billionaires, directing an immense bureaucracy.

    That’s an ideal. Few groups have either the personnel, training and discipline, or money to afford all the bells and whistles.

    Other problems are the “herd of gerbils” you are protecting, who are an unpredictable and often random assembly; as well as agents provocateurs (or agentes provocatrice (female)), who it is now developing were on both sides at Charlottesville, stimulating the confrontation. *And* a hostile government, willing to either pull out the police at the worst moment, or even order the police to attack your group, leaving the enemy unmolested.

    There have been instances where comms were cut off by deactivating cell phone towers, or even jammed. They are certainly going to be monitored. This means you may be limited to just hand signals.

    Finally, terrorist acts are increasing at an alarming rate, which could easily include snipers and bombs. And of course, an extremely hostile media.

    If the organizers have even a little common sense, the demonstration will be ringed with armed “pickets”, who will use walkie-talkies give a heads up if they are about to be attacked by armed radicals. Meanwhile, there will be a few car trunks nearby full of weapons, that can be dispensed quickly as needed.

    It was first written by the group The Band, the primary composer being a Canadian, Robbie Robertson. In performance, the lead vocals were by Levon Helm, who was truly gifted with his agonized expressions of torment of the southerner singing the song. Most people assumed it was a modern adaptation of a traditional song.

    It is the highlight of one of the best concert films ever,
    Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz (1978), after which The Band broke up, just before they became wildly popular because of the movie.

    Joan Baez really fouled up the lyrics, btw, which didn’t matter because it still became a hit for her.

    From the movie, The Last Waltz:

    I don’t believe this for a second.

    Anonymous is based in 4chan, and when the SJWs moved in there, and tried to force them to be politically correct, it turned the vast majority into Trump supporters. Since that time, they have been very anti-leftist.

    As a group they do not support Antifa.

    However, other groups have frequently *pretended* to represent Anonymous. Sometimes radical leftists, and sometimes even governments, have tried to use them as cover.

    Definitely check out the Japanese horror movie Matango (1963).

    “MATANGO, directed by Ishiro Honda, is an exceptionally beautiful fantasy film from the mighty Toho. Bastardized for its American release, badly dubbed, retitled (”Attack of the Mushroom People”) and afforded very little respect, its recent re-emergence as a special edition DVD (2005) confirms its place in the realm of fantastique cinema.”

    The individual states could stop this nonsense right now.

    Compile a list of those majors in which students are hired to work in their career within six months after graduation, and those who are not. Some majors will have lots of job placements, some will have some. But some will have none. Year after year.

    And the state must be clear that it will no longer subsidize these worthless degrees.

    And it must go further, that if students want a worthless degree, it must be paid for without student loans. That is, that schools will no longer accept loan money for a worthless degree, just guaranteeing that those students will be impoverished.

    From that point, the state legislature must evaluate ALL mandatory classes, to determine if they actually contribute to the students degree, or if they are worthless and frivolous excuses to take money from students while wasting their time.

    Finally, faculty who taught worthless and frivolous degrees and courses need to be classed as redundant, so that they can be dismissed even if they have tenure.

    Importantly, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act has both a criminal and *civil* component.

    RICO requires a demonstration of a pattern of racketeering, based on a list of predicate offenses.

    Basically, an organization or wealthy individual could *sue* George Soros in federal court, to assert that he is the head of a massive criminal enterprise. And if they won, they could collect *triple damages* from Soros and his organization.

    Oddly enough, this is a federal prerogative, and a lawsuit will likely prevail against the city.

    HUD, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the federal agency in charge, has very explicit and precise rules about most elements of housing.

    Ben Carson is its current director, and has already slashed billions of improper spending by the agency. Good job, Mr. Carson, and good for him.

    However, these HUD rules are pretty clear, and woe be to any landlord who does not carefully follow them.

    And I strongly suggest that this Seattle rule will run afoul of HUD rules.

    Currently, convicts that HUD *allows* to be excluded from rentals include: child sex offenders, drug convictions, aggravated assault, and rape.

    Mr. Carson should be able to include other offenses as he sees fit. No matter what Seattle thinks.

    Since the Georgia legislature is very Republican, I would hope that they soon pass a law making it a very serious felony to deface or vandalize the Stone Mountain monument, and still a felony to attempt to do so.

    I’m thinking 20 years minimum.

    Georgia is still 60% white. So, I imagine when she gets annihilated in the election, she will blame it on “racism”.
