  • George Mason’s Orwellian “Just Societies” Requirement. Courses that take DEI principles for granted cannot be intellectually honest.

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | March 1, 2024 | Bryan Caplan
    I recently discovered that George Mason University, where I teach, plans to adopt a “Just Societies” course requirement. “Students entering Mason in Fall 2024 or later will be required to take two Mason Core courses that have the Just Societies flag.” If you read any closer, you unsurprisingly discover that this is a thinly veiled woke-indoctrination requirement. Students are not exploring substantively different views on justice; they are hearing about “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” in all its Orwellian wonder. ... What’s so terrible about the Just Societies framework? Let me count the ways. First, the requirement plainly takes the correctness...
  • Mr McGoo at the Border (Sunbray)

    03/03/2024 6:05:03 AM PST · by bray · 3 replies ^ | 3/3/24 | bray
    Psalm 73:25-26 (King James Version) Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. President McGoo goes to the border and calls anyone who questions Global Warming Neanderthals. The irony of someone who is obviously deep into senility calling Trump a Neanderthal is rich. Everyone knows the reason he was there was to take some of the cameras off Trump when in reality he put more on him and his obvious attempt...
  • LOL: 'MSNBC Republican' Michael Steele Chides NY Dems For Not Gerrymandering Hard Enough!

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    At NewsBusters, we use the term "MSNBC Republican" to describe people who were once actual Republicans but can now be reliably counted on to criticize their supposed party and generally toe the liberal line o' the day. Michael Steele, the former RNC chairman turned member of the disgraced Lincoln Project, is the epitome of the kind of Biden-voter Republican MSNBC uses. Even so, his performance as co-host on the network's show The Weekend on Saturday morning could have constituted a first: an 'MSNBC Republican' rapping the Dems . . . for not being partisan enough!Get the rest of the story...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | 3/1/24 | Sundance
    If you ever needed a good point to highlight the nature of political Lawfare, this is a great example. Julie Kelly essentially notes that Special Prosecutor Jack Smith is asking DC Judge James Boasberg to decide what evidence should be given to Florida Judge Aileen Cannon. Julie Kelly – “It appears that records related to the grand jury proceedings in DC on the classified docs case remain under seal and have not been transmitted to Judge Cannon or defense. Recall that almost the entire investigation into the classified docs matter took place in Washington DC–not southern FLA even though it...

  • Washington Post Reporter Mocks Shoplifting Stories As The "Panic" Of "A Sticky-Fingered Nation Built On Stolen Land"

    03/02/2024 9:06:44 PM PST · by SeekAndFind · 62 replies
    Washington Post writer Maura Judkis is under fire this week for a column in which she mocks shoplifting stories as the “moral panic” of a nation built on “stolen land.”It is reminiscent of those who excused rioting in past summers “as an expression of power” and demanded that the media refer to looters as “protesters.” Now, the Washington Post is suggesting that it may be just desserts for a nation of colonizers and enslavers.The prior day, the Post ran another column downplaying accounts of stores closing due to shoplifting even though employees blamed rampant shoplifting in San Francisco.Judkis wrote a...

    A new find of underground helium in Minnesota could turn out to be one of the largest in the world, Minneapolis’s WCCO-TV reported Thursday. The drill site, just outside Babbitt in the northeastern part of the state, took about a month from initially breaking ground to get to a depth of 2,200 feet. What it found there, Pulsar Helium CEO Thomas Abraham-James called “a dream.” “There was a lot of screaming, a lot of hugging and high fives. It’s nice to know the efforts all worked out and we pulled it off,” Abraham-James told WCCO. He said that the concentration...

    Real Clear Wire ^ | 03/02/2024 | Felix Aviles
    The aerospace industry desperately needs young talent if we expect it to grow, innovate, and continue providing the services we need and expect in the modern era. The jobs are plentiful, but the skilled workers are not. The leaders of the industry must do a better job of communicating with the next generation of aviation pilots, machinists, and mechanics. If they don’t, the future of aerospace is in jeopardy.A recently released industry report a detailed that “the aircraft mechanic shortage has reached a critical point" and the outlook for growth is precarious. This is detrimental not only to commercial aviation,...

    The first ship to sink as a result of Houthi rebel strikes is the Belize-flagged Rubymar, which descended into the depths of the Red Sea, officials announced Saturday. The Houthi attacks have had international implications as major companies have started avoiding the crucial shipping lanes and opting for safer - but longer and more expensive - routes. Via the Associated Press:The sinking of the Rubymar comes as shipping through the crucial waterway for cargo and energy shipments moving from Asia and the Middle East to Europe has been affected by the Houthi attacks.Already, many ships have turned away from the...

    In the “hmm, this sounds weird” category of stories today, multiple outlets are reporting that the death of Foremost Group CEO Angela Chao — the sister-in-law of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell — is being treated as a possible criminal matter. A Texas county sheriff’s office is leading the investigation:Chao, 50, was found dead shortly after midnight on Feb. 11 after being pulled out of a car that had gone into a pond on a private ranch in Johnson City, Texas, about 40 miles from Austin.“This incident was not a typical accident," the Blanco County Sheriff's Office wrote in a...

Now, they have been referred by a watchdog group to the Georgia state bar for misconduct.The American Accountability Foundation (AAF) is alleging that the pair violated the rules of professional conduct in ethics complaints they filed with the bar.

    We have way too many McClellans “If you think you’re going to vote your way out of this you’re wrong.” “They’ll just steal it again.” Folks, I’m about to blow a gasket with these types. Many of these people think they are—-or portray themselves as—-MAGA or “conservatives.” There is nothing whatsoever conservative or MAGA about this worldview. Quite the contrary, if I was a DemoKKKrat I would energetically promote this kind of thinking to suppress MAGA and conservative turnout. It is simply a wrong worldview in several ways. First, it is counter-Biblical. The Bible instructs both Jews and Christians to...

  • Illegal Aliens Will Get Interest-Free Home Loans Under New Democrat California Bill

    California Democrats once again prioritized illegal aliens over American citizens, this time by introducing a bill that would allow illegals to receive interest-free home loans. Democrat assembly member Joaquin Arambula (Fresno) last month introduced Assembly Bill 1840 that would extend a first-time homebuyer loan program to illegal aliens. “It’s that ambiguity for undocumented individuals, despite the fact that they’ve qualified under existing criteria, such as having a qualified mortgage, underscores the pressing need for us to introduce legislation,” Arambula said in an interview. “Homeownership has historically been the primary means of accumulating generational wealth in the United States,” he said....

    In 2023 Venezuela reported 26.8 murders per 100,000 inhabitant. This was down from 35.3 the previous year. A possible explanation is that the surge in illegal migration from Venezuela to the US included a contingent of criminals in its midst. This past week, Jose Antonio Ibarra, an illegal immigrant from Venezuela, was arrested for murdering Laken Riley, a student studying nursing at the University of Georgia. Last summer, Ibarra was arrested in New York City for "acting in a manner to injure a child," but was immediately released under the City's sanctuary policy toward illegal migrants. NYC Mayor Eric Adams...

    Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater, joined Patrick Bet David recently. Prince described what he sees as the best solution for Ukraine – an ugly peace. Prince is a former US Navy SEAL officer and well-respected military strategist. Erik Prince: “We need to bring that war to a close because all Ukraine is doing right now is destroying itself demographically. They’re chewing up the next generation of manpower that they really can’t really replace right now. They don’t have enough manpower. The Western defense base is pathetic. And you’re not going to out-conventional war the Russian Bear. And I would...

    This excellent presentation meticulously breaks down exactly what went awry throughout COVID-19. What everyone needs to know is summarized below. Ron Johnson has gradually become one of my favorite senators in American history. In 2020, he repeatedly advocated for early COVID-19 treatments to be made available to Americans (which had they been made available would have ended the pandemic). Throughout 2021, he spoke out against the vaccine mandates and in November hosted a panel at the Senate which scrutinized the federal vaccine mandates and exposed how poorly those who experienced severe COVID-19 vaccine injuries were being treated. In January 2022,...
