  • Kamala Harris grew up in a mostly white world. Then she went to a black university in a black city.

    Kamala Harris is almost as much of a fake black person as Rachel Dolezal, who tried to pass for “black” only to be called on her deception.

    People of India are not “black” in the accepted sense, even though some may be of a very dark complexion. Their racial stock is much more closely related to the European, as in “Indo-European”. There is very little black of African origin among the Tamil people of India. The Siddi people are actually much more African in their origins, but they make only a very small part of the overall Indian population.

  • Mishandling of California High-Speed Rail Land Deals Adds to Mounting Costs, Delays

    Boondoggle by any name is still a boondoggle. Burns up all kinds of resources better used to actually IMPROVE life for the greater number of Californians, and not just the few crony capitalists that stand to benefit directly.

    This is not merely waste, it is creating the infrastructure for something that cannot possibly be repurposed to any lasting benefit.

  • Prospects for Trump gun deal grow dimmer

    The Democrats have only one objective with “background checks”, it is to build a database of who has the guns, and who is purchasing them. All this is a prerequisite to confiscation at some future time.

    Criminals, of course, would be missed this dragnet almost entirely, as they obtain guns by extralegal channels, which do not much include any kind of applications to a state or federal agency, and are always either cash-and-carry or the five-finger discount (flat out STEALING the gun).

    I still stand by the alternative, which is to fully educate EVERY American on the duties and responsibilities of handling weapons safely and within the bounds of the law. By widespread exposure to the whole culture of gun possession, it would become relatively obvious those persons who are so deathly afraid of guns they could never be induced to handle them, and those who are of such warped moral fiber that they must never be ALLOWED to come into possession of the array of weapons out there, and not just guns, but or every other kind of device which can inflict harm or death on another.

    The remainder, which would be far the largest part of those exposed to information about guns of all kinds, would then be free to engage in further training and education in the care, feeding, grooming, safety requirements, and the skills necessary to select targets judiciously, to frame, aim, and with respectable accuracy, direct fire at the chosen target.

  • NYTimes Does it Again: Omits The Fact that Kavanaugh’s Accuser Was Clinton’s Defense Attorney

    alloysteel to Enlightened1

    We weren’t supposed to know that, or find it out....

    And now that we have, is this just supposed to be “payback” for how Clinton was abused by Ken Starr?

    Fact is, Slick was treated VERY gently by Starr, as there were several glaring infractions of the law, much more serious than simply lying to investigative authorities under oath, relating to very real malfeasance of office and international selling of secrets to enemy regimes. But that was considered too shameful to make any of it public, and it was simply hushed up, as this could be a very devastating precedent to set up.

    This is just a very vicious and malicious attack against a Clinton “enemy”.

    Boogity-boogity-boogity. Make enough loud noises and scary faces, and maybe Brett Kavanaugh will be intimidated into abandoning a lifetime of reasoned approach and deliberate consideration of the matters before him on the bench.

    This has the secondary objective of so thoroughly discouraging any potential replacement for RBG, that nobody will be offered up except an ultra-left activist revisionist toadie.

    The Democrats are just going to have to win the 2020 Presidential election.

    Yeah, right. To all three points.

  • Attack on Saudi oil sites raises risks amid US-Iran tension

    alloysteel to McGruff

    The Islamic Republic of Iran is literally begging the world to come and give them a kick in their collective butts.

    This goes FAR beyond Saudi Arabia, this threatens the entire supply chain of petroleum commerce almost everywhere. It shall not directly affect the US, as we are energy-independent now, but it throws a LOT of weight on other supply chains around the world, particularly India and China, and may induce either or both of them of intervene in whatever way they can.

    This is not socialist versus capitalist confrontation, or even infidel versus Muslim confrontation. This is Shiite on Sunni rivalry coming to a very ugly head, and in the end, there can be only one.

    But until that is settled, horrendous collateral damage elsewhere. This is turf war between two rival gangs.

    Gang databases are the biggest “Red Flag” of all.

    Make it known that these individuals that make up gangs are under unending scrutiny, and they might not ever become “good citizens”, but they will be the “usual suspects” rounded up.

    There is a way to reduce this tarnish of their “stainless” record, you know. Don’t join in gangs, or get out of them at first opportunity and stay out.

  • Climate protesters tell carmakers 'the party is over' (only 11.37 years left)

    There is no such thing as an “environmentally friendly vehicle”. The environment is totally quiet on vehicles.

    The smelting of the steel that goes into the construction of the vehicle, no matter HOW it is powered, the refining of the various elements that go to make up the components of this engineering marvel known as an “automobile”, and the sheer volume of the machining and forging of the parts, all consume as much or more total number of BTUs as that vehicle shall ever consume while proceeding down the highway.

    BTUs translate directly into “energy consumption” and result in much carbon production and excess heat generation while that energy is being released to create the very wealth that has lifted the entire human population out of the caves and trees and tribal societies from whence they sprang. The thing is, earth has proven over and over again that the “excess” carbon production and the “excess” heat are both taken in stride by the natural homeostatic forces that act in our biosphere, and at every level from the depths of the ocean to the top of our stratosphere.

    The “excess” carbon, in the form of carbon dioxide, is plant food, and as such, expands and enriches the opportunities for more rapid plant growth. The “excess” heat is radiated off every night by the actions of the earth turning away from the “hot” side, exposed to the sun, and allowing the heat to be re-radiated from the “cold” side, away from the intense rays of the sun. And along with this heat energy, any little bit of “excess” heat produced by the efforts of mankind are radiated away as well.

    Somebody should put out the word, that in life, there are no do-overs. The moving pen having written, moves on.

    There can be smears, and even attempted erasures, but both are ugly and the obvious attempt to obliterate the record is there for any discerning eye to see.

    Obliteration of history ranks right there with the other crimes of history like genocide and international treachery.

  • Ted Cruz: 'Donald Trump has broken the Democratic Party'

    Demolition so new construction can begin. The Democrat party has lost its way and become an almost unlivable slum, attracting cockroaches, rats and slithering reptiles. Not amenable to easy cleanup, the refuse must be cleared by burning or burying the most unregenerate or unproductive parts, and introducing a new and more sustainable structure upon which the principles that shaped America may be introduced.

    Start by teaching what the REAL America once was, and shall be again.

    But perhaps I give too much credit to the innate good sense that even a goose knows upon getting out into the world, but which has sadly been lost by the plantation indigents.

    What fever swamp did Forbes wander into? Climate Change in and of itself, would not have that effect on most humans. But getting into a lather over how it “might” have a negative effect, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, and a few do start going off the rails.

    Nothing’s either good or bad, it’s thinking makes it so.

  • If Solar Panels Are So Clean, Why Do They Produce So Much Toxic Waste?

    Unintended consequences once again rear their ugly heads....

    The science of photoelectric power generation is far from fully developed. Perhaps, one day, the whole business of solar power generation will be pushed into hard-vacuum space, in geosynchronous orbit around the earth, and the multi-megawatt power be transmitted down to a receiving station on the earth’s surface. But this is still right up there with developing an anti-gravity transporter that could be used to cut apart mountains and create a sea-level canal along the US/Mexican border.

    “Renewable energy” has not yet been fully thought through. Considering the capabilities of the people pushing the concept, it may NEVER get to the critical thinking level that is needed regarding the development and application of sustainable use.

  • The New York Times Has Abandoned Liberalism for Activism

    The NYT has not abandoned liberalism - they have merely embraced the rapidly changing nature of a loose set of precepts identified with what is known as the current form of liberalism as it exists in the second decade of the 21st Century.

    Nothing at all like the “liberal” policies held up by John F. Kennedy and George McGovern in the middle part of the 20th Century, yet the NYT behaves as if nothing has changed.

    Robert Francis O’Rourke has no empathy for the military either, as he considers all this exchange of gunfire just so much dreadful theater.

    Therefore, nobody, not the military, not the police, not the FBI, should have guns. It should all be done diplomatically, of course, and simple dialogue will solve every conflict.
