    A University of Delaware professor is under a barrage of fire for social media posts stating Otto Warmbier, who passed away after 18 months of brutality from the North Korean regime, “got exactly what he deserved” for being a privileged, white male and his type “think nothing of raping drunk girls at frat parties and snorting cocaine.” “Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?” Professor Katherine Dettwyler wrote on her Facebook page. “He went to North Korea, for f*ck’s sake, and then acted like a spoiled, naive, arrogant US college student who...

    This is your fault, Clinton Democrats. You created this, and if our species is plunged into a new world war or extinction via nuclear holocaust, it will be your fault. You knuckle-dragging, vagina hat-wearing McCarthyite morons made this happen. American military provocations against the pro-Assad coalition in Syria are fast becoming a daily occurrence. In response to the US air force’s gunning down of a Syrian military plane on Sunday, Russia has cut off its hotline with which it was coordinating operations with America to avoid aerial collisions, and has warned that all US aircraft west of the Euphrates river...

    Your Voice Radio and Video on YouTube ^ | 6/23/2017 | Dr. Sebastan Gorka and Bill Mitchell
    I visited Bill Mitchell's twitter page throughout the campaign and as a Trump supporter, it got you fired up. A few months back, Mitchell stepped up his game and started posting podcasts, and I listened to a couple. Good content. But just now I saw a couple of Youtube videos -- and particularly this one with Dr. Sebastian Gorka, one of Trump's key advisors. It's fantastic and I think you're going to love the Skye-like relatively low production videos. It's real and the guests I saw so far are great. Check it out. Rush and Hannity must be looking over...

    IWB ^ | Robert Carbery
    America seems to be on the brink of something dramatic. Something significant. Perhaps revolutionary. A summer of rage appears more and more likely as the nation remains bitterly divided and irreparably torn due to outlandish partisanship. The political elite and their good friends in the powerful Deep State are being threatened by the Trump administration that, for all its faults, is at least exposing the Deep Swamp that really runs Washington. The old political order is being upended by Trump’s rise to power and the media elite still haven’t figured out how to adapt. During this time of transformation, people...
  • A Surprising Number Of Men In Washington State Aren’t Registered For The Draft. That’s A Felony

    Task & Purpose ^ | June 16, 2017 | Melissa Santos, The News Tribune
    Federal officials say nearly one out of six young men in Washington state are committing a felony, and they might not even know it. Their crime? Not registering for a nonexistent military draft. Despite the United States not having pressed anyone into military service since 1973, virtually all men ages 18 to 25 still are required to register with the Selective Service System. The agency keeps men’s information on file in case the country needs to mobilize a military force during a time of crisis. Not registering can cause men big problems down the road, officials say. For one, it...

    Scott Adams' Blog ^ | June 21, 2017 | Scott Adams
    People accuse me of imagining that everything President Trump does is brilliant (persuasion-wise) no matter what he does. But I expect the next version of the Republican healthcare bill to be a complete failure. That’s because Republicans seem deeply committed to a losing path, thanks to what might be called the Contrast Problem. Contrast is the driving principle behind all decisions. You have to know how your options differ, and by how much, or else you have no basis for a decision. President Obama solved for the contrast problem by designing Obamacare to cover more people than before. The rest...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 25 June 2017 | John Semmens
    In an election once widely touted by Democrats as "a referendum on the Trump presidency," Democrat Jon Ossoff lost to Republican Karen Handel in Georgia's 6th congressional district race. Ossoff nearly won the race in April's open primary—garnering twice as many votes as his nearest competitor—but fell short of the 50% +1 vote majority required. Democrats were also buoyed by a five-to-one campaign spending edge and polls showing Ossoff with a comfortable lead (on the Monday before election day, Democratic polling guru Nate Silver gave Ossoff a 70% chance of winning). Some Democrats blamed Ossoff's attempt to appeal to moderates...

    Aaaannnnnnd....another of Obama's minions have appeared: This kind of leak is criminal. Exposing national security to blame Trump for Obama's failure to act. Amazing. streiff: The Washington Post has a detailed and self-serving account today from several Obama administration officials on the actions taken to stop alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. The overall picture it paints is pretty much what we have come to believe about the Obama administration. It was wildly incompetent because it was staffed by wildly incompetent people. Politics and moving the progressive agenda forward trumped, so to speak, national security. And its capacity for...

    Illinois is now spending over 100% of its monthly revenue and talk of Chapter 9 bankruptcy has begun; Congress has yet to step in, but chatter predicts it may not be much longer. The problem remains that until Illinois (and more specifically Chicago) changes its economically suicidal policies, there is almost nothing that can be done to stop the spiral. Major ideology changes will be blocked constantly, but there is something they can do that will keep all sides relatively happy. People have been talking about Illinois going bankrupt for years (in fact it seems to be an almost annual...

    FORT HUACHUCA — CW3 Michael Moore wants to make one thing clear: his orders to Fort Huachuca have nothing to do with inactivating the Fort Huachuca Military Intelligence Corps Band (MI Corps). Moore currently serves as the band’s — also known as the 62nd Army Band — commander. He officially took command on May 3. The process of inactivating a band comes from a higher up, like the Department of the Army, Moore said. “So that direct instruction come through the various echelons of the Army.” The official Department of the Army memorandum of inactivation was signed and dated on...

    What else can possibly go wrong with our great country, the former “shining city on the hill,” that is being tarnished day by day by influential anti-American groups with huge coffers? Liberals from California and smaller blue states are exerting their influence on the electoral process in red states, determined to flip them to blue, and, by and large, are succeeding with the exception of the most recent election in Georgia’s 6th district where Democrats spent over $23 million, the most in the history of the House of Representative elections ever. I’m still scratching my head trying to understand the...

    RALEIGH — More than 8,000 new jobs could be lured to North Carolina under a new corporate incentive program included in the state budget, House Speaker Tim Moore said Thursday. Moore explained a budget provision that would allow larger incentive packages for companies that invest more than $4 billion in the state and create at least 5,000 jobs. Those companies wouldn’t be subject to the state’s current cap on incentive packages. “We’re on the cusp of maybe landing a major industry in this state,” Moore said....

    When James Hodgkinson walked onto the baseball field and fired on those practicing a beloved American game, he committed the most serious political assassination in decades. The Capitol Police were there at the scene, and they acted in saving lives. If they had not, it would have been a massacre. There was little for the FBI to do here. The motives of the shooter are pretty clear, and he had a list of names of his targets. He ranted and raved about Republicans on social media, and he asked before the shooting were the players Republicans or Democrats. Looks like...

    English gun store In the U.K., the mere idea that licensed gun owners could be considered a resource to defend against terrorist attack, is off the table. A caller to a BBC radio show, a gun store owner and gun owner, asked Alison Hernandez, the Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioner, a question.  What would be the repercussions of legal gun owners using guns to defend themselves in a terrorist attack? The Commissioner suggested that the idea should be examined. From theguardian.com: “If there should ever be a terrorist attack, what happens if I and other people try to defend...

    On June 23rd, 2016, Britain voted to leave the European Union. In one of the most startling political upsets to the British and European Establishment, the highest ever voter turnout rejected the Globalist EU and opted to be a self-governing, sovereign nation state. One year on and the mechanism to leave (Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty) has been triggered and the negotiations have begun in earnest. The man responsible for not only getting the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, to hold a Referendum on Britain’s continued membership, but also, arguably, the man who secured the victory was Mr. Nigel...

    During an interview on Sean Hannity’s radio show yesterday, Camille Paglia destroyed Democrats, the media and journalists for their collusion and bias against Republicans and President Trump. “It’s obscene,” Pagilia said. “It’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.” Paglia called what she said the Democratic Party had done to journalism “absolutely grotesque” and warned it would take decades to recover. “I’m a professor of media studies, in addition...

    Reflections on the Trump Administration's changes to our Cuba policy: In 1959, following six years of organized Marxist-Leninist rebellion, mostly run by Fidel and Raul Castro and their partner Che Guevera, the Battista government of Cuba was overthrown and Fidel Castro claimed dictatorial powers, which he eventually turned over to his brother Raul, in 2008. The Castros spent their sixty years not only oppressing their people – robbing, raping, beating, imprisoning, torturing, and killing, as all communist governments do – but they also spent those years, particularly the years before the collapse of the Soviet Union, spreading violent revolution across...
