    At 3:30 p.m. Monday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass participated in a press conference to discuss the blaze that has crippled the downtown commute for hundreds of thousands of Angelenos. Newsom began the press conference by describing the fire as being set with “malice intent,” saying the fire burned within the fence line and appeared to be an act of arson. Newsom had previously said that the area was being leased by a company that the state knew well and was involved in active litigation with, adding that the lease had recently expired. “The structural...

    Nextdoor: one big ‘Karen’ clambake of angry menopausal harpies.. Social media giant Nextdoor, which I refer to as one big “Karen” clambake of angry menopausal harpies, announced it will lay off 25% of its staff in a financial report posted Tuesday. Cue the violins… millions of people won’t care at all – or will celebrate. The most toxic of all of the social media organizations, Nextdoor is the hyperlocal “neighborhood” website which claims, “it’s where communities come together to greet newcomers, exchange recommendations, and read the latest local news. Where neighbors support local businesses and get updates from public agencies....

    Many leading Republicans and conservatives want someone other than Donald Trump to run for President in 2024. But this judgment requires an assessment of Trump’s vices and virtues in the context of our current political and cultural circumstances, as well as an assessment of other prospective Republican presidential candidates. Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, explains Trump's Virtues.

    Gettysburg is a small Pennsylvania town with a small school district, a small seminary, and a small college surrounded by apple orchards. It is best known for the most important battle of the American Civil War and the location of Abraham Lincoln's most famous speech. ... Decline It is hard to say exactly when or how, but this community, which was built around a seminary, a Bible college, and then a battle, slowly turned secular. ...While the ghost industry was on the rise and the Christmas nativity was in decline, the seminary was in a nosedive.

    The FBI is vetting the manifesto of mass murderer Audrey Hale, and that’s a problem. On Monday, March 27, Audrey Hale, a 28-year-old woman who thought she was a man, shot her way into the Covenant School in Nashville, Tennessee. There Hale gunned down Evelyn Dieckhaus, 9, Mike Hill, 61, William Kinney, 9, Katherine Koonce, 60, Cynthia Peak, 61, and Hallie Scruggs, nine-year-old daughter of Chad Scruggs, who is senior pastor at the Covenant Presbyterian Church, on the same site as the Covenant School. Hale, reportedly a former student, specifically targeted the place. The shooter used an AR-15–style rifle, a...

    On Thursday, VA announced an updated version of its 1959 mission statement: “To fulfill President Lincoln’s promise to care for those who have served in our nation’s military and for their families, caregivers, and survivors.” The new mission statement is inclusive of all those who have served in our nation’s military—including women Veterans—as well as Veteran families, caregivers, and survivors. VA currently serves more than 600,000 women Veterans, the fastest growing cohort of Veterans. VA also serves more than 50,000 Veteran caregivers, more than 600,000 Veteran survivors, and millions of Veterans who did not serve in combat.
  • Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels to be revised to erase material deemed offensive

    American Thinker ^ | 02/27/2023 | Rajan Laad
    April 13, 1953 was a red letter the day in popular culture. It was when Ian Fleming’s debut novel, Casino Royale, was published, and the world was introduced to James Bond. The success of Casino Royale in the U.K. paved the way for subsequent works by Fleming, featuring Bond. In 1961, President Kennedy named 'From Russia With Love' as one of his top ten favorite books in Life magazine. This endorsement made the book a bestseller in the U.S. Some say it was Kennedy's way of linking himself to Bond and projecting himself as a Bond-like heroic leader taking on...

    Daily Skeptic ^ | February 20, 2023 | Noah Carl
    Britain’s elite cultural institutions – the BBC, universities, the national trust – are dominated by the woke. Since smart people tend to get ahead in life, you might assume the woke would have higher intelligence. Not so, according to a new study. Louise Drieghe and colleagues surveyed 300 North Americans adults using the platform Mechanical Turk. To measure participants’ cognitive ability, they administered the Ammons Quick Test, which involves correctly assigning words to pictures. Previous studies have shown that people’s scores on the test correlate strongly with their scores on more comprehensive IQ tests, such as the Wechsler Adult Intelligence...

    Before turning against the U.S. military to command the Confederate army, Robert E. Lee served as the superintendent of West Point, the hallowed military academy that produced patriots like Ulysses S. Grant, Douglas MacArthur and Dwight Eisenhower.But in the coming days, the storied academy will take down a portrait of Lee dressed in his Confederate uniform from its library, where it has been hanging since the 1950s and place it in storage. It will also remove the stone bust of the Civil War's top southern general at Reconciliation Plaza. And Lee’s quote about honor will be stripped from the academy’s...

    The Free Press -- Tampa ^ | November 13, 2022 | Mike Jenkins
    Earlier this month, former President Trump said that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) should be impeached if he backs a plan for the debt ceiling to be eliminated over fears that House Republicans could cause the U.S. to default on the nation’s credit. When asked by conservative radio host John Fredericks about chatter surrounding the possibility of Congress effectively eliminating the debt limit, the former president lambasted the idea. On Sunday, following the Democrat’s win and maintaining Senate control, Trump went on the attack. “It’s Mitch McConnell’s fault. Spending money to defeat great Republican candidates instead of backing Blake...

    In a collection of essays titled The Soviet Mind: Russian Culture under Communism, the great twentieth century Oxford philosopher Isaiah Berlin tells a story: There once was a man who worked as a steward on a seagoing ship. He was told that, in order to avoid breaking plates during heavy weather, he should not walk in a straight line. Rather, he should try to move in a zig zag manner to maintain his balance. A storm came. The steward dropped his plates, shattering them in the process. Asked why he had not followed instructions, the steward replied, “I did, but...

  • The Left’s Orwellian Newspeak: the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Delusion

    American Thinker ^ | 18 Feb, 2022 | Adam Vicari
    Newspeak is alive and well in the "diversity and inclusion" offices of academia. Anyone who is familiar with the Dystopian (and alarmingly relevant) novel “1984” by George Orwell is familiar with the concept of ”Newspeak.” In short, “Newspeak” is the language that the citizens of the autocratic future superstate “Oceania” speak, and it basically works by drastically reducing the number of words in an individual’s vocabulary or in the dictionary that the state deems “unnecessary.” Of course, the real purpose of “Newspeak” is to eliminate words that might cause an individual to think about ideas contrary to the state’s agenda...

    So I find out today I've been cancelled by "neighborly" NextDoor. This is absurd - and perhaps I was "reported" (snitched) by the last jerk I replied to last week. He was telling everyone how there aren't many of us (around here - indeed) and we're just posting alot (not true) and WE SHOULD REPORT THEM AND GET THEM BANNED. I gave him a piece of my mind in public. That goes for ND - and FB, and YT also.

    Jamie Dimon is a renowned Wall Street wisecracker but making jokes about China is risque even for the world's top banking executive. Speaking at a panel discussion at the Boston College Chief Executives Club, Dimon quipped: 'I was just in Hong Kong and I made a joke that the Communist Party is celebrating its hundredth year. So is JP Morgan. I'd make a bet we last longer.'

    Joe Biden called a black man a “negro” last week. It was clear as day. He called the late Satchel Paige a “negro.” It’s not the n-word, but you can’t call black people that anymore, Joe. Yes, Paige was a pitcher in the Negro league, but that’s not what Joe said. And the fact that we have explainer pieces on how it’s not really a big deal that Joe said this just shows you that the liberal media knows this was a trip-up. If a Republican had said this, you know what the reaction from the liberal media would be....

    More than 2,500 people have signed a petition calling for the Randolph board of education to resign days after the district voted to remove the names of holidays from the school calendar following a earlier debate about how to refer to Columbus Day. “(Superintendent) Jen Fano and all of the Board of Education Members have disgraced our community and clearly do not have the best interests of our children in anything they do,” the online petition started late last week reads. “They represent everything that is wrong in education today and are completely incompetent in every aspect of their role.”...

    The Aspen Beat ^ | April 27, 2021 | Glenn K. Beaton
    On a recent walk, I came across a neighborhood littered with the yard sign in this photo. It seems the provocative platitudes we’ve seen on bumper stickers for a century have now taken root in our yards. And for the same reason: To tell the world that the sign-planter holds wonderful beliefs that he’s willing to impose upon and attribute to the rest of his family. It’s surely not because the sign-planter thinks he’s persuading anyone of the rightness of his position, as if the neighbors reading the sign will say to themselves, “Gee, ‘Democracy dies in darkness’ is a...

    Townhall ^ | March 17, 2021 | john R Lott Jr.
    Some simple, obvious facts are too politically incorrect for academics to state publicly. Georgetown University just fired law professor Sandra Sellers and forced out professor David Batson. Sellers' offense? "I end up having this angst every semester that a lot of my lower ones are blacks," Sellers' said in discussion with another professor at the end of a Zoom call. Batson's offense? He didn't condemn the statement, but instead sympathized with Sellers’ concerns. “What drives me crazy is… my own unconscious biases playing out in the scheme of things” might be responsible for their poor scores, he said. The logic...

    The Wall Street Journal, owned by billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., is banning its reporters from using the term “illegal immigrant” and “illegal” to refer to illegal aliens living in the United States. This week, in an update its style guide, the Journal states that while it will allow reporters to continue using the term “illegal immigration” to describe the process of illegal aliens arriving and staying in the U.S., it will no longer permit reporters to describe individuals as “illegal” or “illegal immigrant” in an effort to stop “labeling people.”
