  • H.L. Mencken: Misfit In 21st-Century America

    WorldNet Daily ^ | July 2, 2020 | ILANA MERCER
    H.L. Mencken, a contrarian polemicist and the consummate critic, who wrote prolifically and prodigiously from 1899 until 1948, may no longer seem relevant, but the fault would not be his. Mencken was a well-read bon vivant with a taste for Teutonic philosophy and a fidelity to immutable truth. He was also a brilliant satirist and a writer whose facility with the English idiom and grasp of intellectual history are unsurpassed. How can a phenom like Mencken appeal in our age, The Age of the Idiot? He can’t: He should, but he can’t. Henry Louis Mencken cannot appeal to the bumper...
  • Video: White Folks Paint Whip Marks On Their Backs And Carry “Cracker For Sale” Signs To Impress BLM – It Backfires immediately

    In one video clip, a black man kneels in front of a line of police, then one by one young white men move in as shields, human barriers between him and the law. In another, a black woman yells at two white women spray-painting a Starbucks shop with “BLM,” — Black Lives Matter — telling them to stop, that vandalism isn’t helping. Variations of both scenes have played out around the country many times in the more than two weeks of protests following the killing of George Floyd by police. They raise the issue: For white people wanting to be...

According to Legal Insurrection the two domestic terrorists were ordered back to jail. They are a danger to the public.

    Some people just don’t get a joke. An April 22 Facebook post had a mock screenshot of beachgoers crammed cheek by jowl to enjoy the waves at Arizona’s ever popular seaside. The image looked as though it was pulled from television news and under the headline, "Crowded beaches in AZ," was the summary "People defying stay-at-home order fill Arizona beaches."

    Cristina Cuomo is the founder of the health and wellness blog The Purist. She is also the wife of CNN’s Chris Cuomo. She is recovering from the coronavirus and has been blogging about her experience with COVID-19. She, her husband, and their 14-year-old son have all been battling the virus recently. I don’t wish that on anyone. Fortunately, Chris Cuomo has recovered and Cristina is doing well in her recovery. Her blog features her suggestions for fighting the coronavirus, though she does recommend that everyone consult a doctor before trying anything. She’s not being irresponsible in her recommendations, as a...

  • Photo of Trump's notes show he crossed out 'corona' and replaced it with 'Chinese' as he continues to use 'racist' term during press briefing about COVID-19.

    A photo of Donald Trump's notes from his Thursday press briefing shows his script had been amended so the term 'corona virus' read 'Chinese virus' - as the president doubled down on his use of the term which critics have branded racist. During the speech, Trump repeated his argument that China is to blame for the original spread of the virus, which has claimed thousands of lives around the world. But he has faced criticism for calling it a 'Chinese virus', as the deadly disease is now a global pandemic.

    Faced with the sudden reality that their semesters would likely be ending, many Middlebury students spent their nights before the mandatory Covid-19-related evacuation partying, drinking and vandalizing the campus and town in abundance. Damage has included broken glass, stolen signs, strewn garbage, smashed furniture and windows, and items thrown into trees. Facilities staff are spending the weekend cleaning up messes across campus...

    A warming planet has major ramifications on winter snowpack across the globe, including a long-term drying trend for many. That's a concern for winter sports enthusiasts and communities that depend on snow throughout the year. Not many understand this better than the climate advocacy group known as Protect Our Winters (POW). The group is an organization of professional athletes and like-minded individuals fighting for policy to protect winter sports and mountain communities. "Increased temperatures are melting away both my sport and my livelihood," professional ski mountaineer and POW representative Caroline Gliech told the US Senate late last year. This year...

    Watch: Sheila Jackson Lee Rails Against Trump Budget as Racist, Claims It Invokes Slavery Democrats seem to term everything racist, especially when it has anything to do with Republicans or President Donald Trump, whether it makes sense or not. Some of the things they’ve termed racist over the years are just downright silly. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) demonstrated exactly that during a Congressional hearing on the proposed Trump budget for next year. Russell Vought was answering questions for the Office of Management and Budget to Congress. Lee attacked the budget talking about the “racist roots of work” and then...

    Democrats are calling on Twitter and Facebook to take down an edited video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ripping up the State of the Union address -- claiming it's designed to “mislead” people. “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi's deputy chief of staff, said Friday.

    Tampa Bay ^ | 1/08/20 | Zachary T. Sampson, Langston Taylor
    ST. PETERSBURG — As she arrived to speak at the region’s first ever resilience leadership summit, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor came upon a hotel parking lot packed with cars. Hundreds of people from local governments, universities and scientific consulting firms had shown up Tuesday. Valets at the Hilton in Carillon Park double-parked vehicles, choking the entry. The scene summarized the day: a symbol both of the growing interest in climate change in Tampa Bay and the enormous hurdles officials face as they aim to curb emissions (from cars, for instance) contributing to rising seas. **SNIP** Among the first speakers was...

    Bruce Ohr, the highest-ranking Obama Justice Department official to involve himself in distributing the anti-Trump dossier, carried out his freelancing through numerous meetings, phone calls and emails as a link between the FBI and Hillary Clinton forces. He told a colleague that the Russia election scandal reached the top — Donald Trump. It was his “duty as a citizen” to spread the unverified allegations around town, he said. During all of Mr. Ohr’s maneuverings, from the summer of 2016 to Mr. Trump’s election to the fall of 2017, he hid the operation from his bosses. When Mr. Ohr’s name surfaced...
  • Could Tax Increases Speed Up the Economy? Democrats Say Yes

    New York Times ^ | December 5, 2019 | Jim Tankersley
    WASHINGTON — Elizabeth Warren is leading a liberal rebellion against a long-held economic view that large tax increases slow economic growth, trying to upend Democratic policymaking in the way supply-side conservatives changed Republican orthodoxy four decades ago. Generations of economists, across much of the ideological spectrum, have long held that higher taxes reduce investment, slowing economic growth. That drag, the consensus held, would offset the benefits to growth from increased government spending in areas like education. Ms. Warren and other leading Democrats say the opposite. The senator from Massachusetts, who is a leading candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, contends...

    STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Luke Logan missed a 35-yard extra point after Mississippi receiver Elijah Moore was penalized for celebrating a touchdown by crawling and pretending to urinate like a dog, and Mississippi State ended up with a 21-20 victory Thursday night in the 116th Egg Bowl. Ole Miss (4-8, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) pulled within a point with 4 seconds remaining on Matt Corral's 2-yard pass to Moore, but Logan hooked the extra point after Moore cost the Rebels 15 yards. "That's not who we are. We've been a disciplined team all year, and so just disappointed that happened," coach Matt...

    Full Header: Hilarious takedown of Dems’ shifting accusations… ‘collusion’ to ‘quid pro quo’ to ‘extortion’ to ‘bribery’ The Trump campaign rapid response team is on its toes. They just emailed a hilarious response to the start of hearings today: High Crimes (and Focus Groups!) Impeachment “is about patriotism. It’s not about politics,” a very sad and somber Nancy Pelosi insisted again yesterday. “It’s not about anything political. It’s about patriotism.” Actually, it’s about polling. The Washington Post reports today that “Democrats have stopped using the term ‘quid pro quo,’ instead describing ‘bribery’ as a more direct summation of Trump’s alleged...

    It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo. The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don't appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification. In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, 'Yes.' However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked 'uneasy', and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting. 'Errr. I'm just learning about this,' Hillary responded. 'It's a very...
