  • Oxford Prof: Academics Fear Mob Will Destroy Their Careers If They Defend British Empire

    A leading scholar at the University of Oxford believes conservatives are afraid to stand up to the “zealous left-wing minority” who want to “erase and rewrite history” in case doing so prompts the mob to destroy their careers. Nigel Biggar, regius professor of moral and pastoral theology, has criticised renewed demands, prompted by the Black Lives Matter movement, for statues and memorials to individuals who do not meet the standards of the 21st-century social justice left to be torn down, and for children to be taught a negatively slanted history of Britain’s imperial past. “The problem is that most academics...

    In an unprecedented display of public contrition, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees set a new record over the weekend for apologies by an NFL quarterback, saying he was sorry 742 times in the space of 48 hours. After controversially stating his personal preference for standing during the National Anthem, the Super Bowl MVP unleashed a heretofore unseen sequence of remorse, explaining that he meant to say people should kneel, or should not not kneel, or should not tell others not to not kneel. He then apologized for not being aware of the things he should apologize for, and he...

  • Pennsylvania Governor hiding from his constituents

    04/17/2020 9:20:10 AM PDT · by VideoPaul · 20 replies
    Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf sure is a leader, all right. He appears on TV a couple of times a week from his bunker, dispatching orders on how Pennsylvanians are to live and behave. Other governors appear daily and take questions from reporters. Wolf, when he does deign to grace us with his presence, only takes carefully screened questions submitted to his office and are read by an employee of his office. We wouldn’t want to tax the governor’s sensitive ears, or make him answer a tough question. Better to hand the daily chores of taking to citizens to some lady...

    Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) on Thursday defended her decision to vote “present” during the House’s impeachment vote, saying she does not believe “in good consciences” she could vote “either yes or no.” “First of all, throughout my life – whether it was through serving in the military and in the different decisions I’ve made in Congress, I always think about what’s in the best interest of the country. People will agree sometimes with those decisions, may disagree with those decisions, but my motivation is always coming from a deep love of country,” she said in an interview with The Hill...

    As Washington was the "one indispensable man," the U.S. is the one indispensable nation. The less its leaders and its citizens believe that, the more it is proven to be true, as the world situation deteriorates. Yet many Americans are experiencing a crisis of faith, deeper and more sinister than the "malaise" with which Jimmy Carter said we were afflicted in the late 1970s. Truth be told, the United States has been in the midst of a "Cold Culture War" for several decades. That war is essentially over. The progressives won. In 1993, Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-N.Y.) coined the phrase...

    for the US Senate to delay the House floor vote for a week. Flake also asked for an FBI investigation into the baseless charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The Senate Judiciary Committee then moved to confirm Judge Kavanaugh 11 votes to 10 nays for the Democrats. Conservative leader Candace Owens dropped this truth bomb on Flake after today’s vote. Candace Owens: Jeff Flake has just indicated that mob rule and radical feminism are the manner in which our republic shall be brought to its knees. He is proving that any and every man’s life can be crushed by the whim...

    SALEM, Ore. – A recently filed Oregon initiative would make manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing or selling an assault weapon or large capacity magazine a crime – with only a few exceptions. If passed, Oregon Initiative 42 would only allow owners to keep their assault weapons and large capacity magazines if they register them with Oregon State Police. If the initiative goes into effect, anyone who owns an assault weapon or large capacity magazine will be required to remove them from the state, sell the items, surrender the items to a law enforcement agency for destruction, render the assault weapon permanently...

    After another mass murder in the defenseless victim zone of a Florida School, the dominant media and other anti-Second Amendment bullies are demanding that American conservatives and the Gun Culture accept their assumption that guns are evil. To accede to those demands is both easy and cowardly. All of the power in the leftist media, such as ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, the Washington Post, AP and CBS, are on the side of the anti-Second Amendment bullies. The easy way out, when confronted with such power to demean, denigrate, and destroy, is to surrender and beat...

    A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports...

    Exclusive: Larry Klayman flays Trump's AG for allowing corruption to continue at DOJ! As I chronicle in my autobiography, “Whores: Why and How I Came To Fight the Establishment!” I was once a proud trial lawyer in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Indeed, as a young 27-year-old attorney in the Reagan DOJ, I was on the trial team that eventually broke up the AT&T monopoly, creating needed and innovative competition in the telecommunications industry. During my time at Justice, I worked closely with special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the investigative arm...

    Two days after an attacker opened fire on concert goers in Las Vegas, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc) announced he was shelving legislation to deregulate suppressors. -snip- Ryan has now shelved the Hearing Protection Act, which was introduced into Congress on January 9; it is the legislation containing suppressor deregulation. The Act does not legalize suppressors–as they are already legal–rather, it removes the burdensome process for acquiring them and erases the federal tax that must be paid in order to receive permission to posses one. House Speaker Paul Ryan says NRA-backed bill to ease regulations on gun silencers is shelved...

    Cowardice is all that grows in the ashes of valor. I don’t know if that fact has been remarked upon previously. Just as I don’t know the number of words launched at observing how earnestly man deploys self-praise as salve for his frailties. Though if the lucid men of antiquity have left no record, it can only be because we have lurched beyond their insight. The ongoing invasion of the West, with its now routine attendant massacres, has revealed pockets of the human psyche that probably weren’t as apparent until being pulled open by modernity’s unique social mandates. Perhaps the...

    Terrorism is only “part and parcel” of urban life for elitist politicians who have no plan or desire to put a stop to criminal corruption, violence, criminal activity or terrorism Apparently feckless, neutered police are also impacting safety and security in the United Kingdom, and not just on California college campuses. The horrific Manchester bombing at the Arianna Grande concert Monday evening, which killed at least 22 and injured more than 150, might have been prevented if politically correct fecklessness within government wasn’t so rampant. Adding to the fecklessness and politics, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said terrorism is “part and...

    “Absent the pressures described [in my affidavit], I would have disapproved the findings in this case,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. For Lorge, the pressure came from President Barack Obama’s White House and also the Senate. “At the time, the political climate regarding sexual assault in the military was such that a decision to disapprove the findings, regardless of merit, would bring hate and discontent on the Navy from the President, as well as senators including Senator Kirstin Gillibrand,” Lorge wrote in his affidavit. Lorge believes that based on his conversations with senior officials in the Navy, he was essentially...

Not you, too? Just when I thought we’d exhausted the reservoir of Trump-hating luvvies, up pops the biggest star in Hollywood to join the bandwagon and stick one more stiletto-heeled boot into the President-elect ten days before his inauguration. Let me make one thing clear before I continue: I love Meryl Streep. She’s the greatest actress in history (and not, as Trump disingenuously tweeted today, ‘one...

    It is no secret that Islamists consider the Germans as a bunch of cowards. “You love life; we love death”, they continue to repeat. Because wherever they look, the combatants of Allah see only people and governments only too ready to capitulate. And Germany is Europe’s soft underbelly. The Bundeswehr, Germany’s army, already belongs to history; the country has welcomed more than one million Muslims; German ministers envision the creation of an “official Islam”, while German churches are closing at weekly rhythm; the Sharia courts are already operating; comedians such as Jan Bohmermann are criminalized and the “night of Cologne”...

    Democratic strategist David Axelrod on Saturday suggested that Hillary Clinton skip her third and final debate with Donald Trump. The former White House adviser to President Obama responded to Trump's call for a drug test before his next debate with Clinton later this month. "You have to wonder if @HillaryClinton will/should reconsider next debate, given the depths to which this has sunk," Axelrod tweeted. Drug testing?!?
