  • Why Are All the Experts Such Dopes?

    The great progressive dream is to dispense with rule by us mere citizens in favor of a government staffed by technocratic, disinterested experts who selflessly apply the principles of science (social science and real science) to create a better, more efficient, effective, and impactful society. Of course, the progressive advocates of expertocracy assume that those experts will share their coastal, urban and blue perspectives, mores, and values – funny how that works. And it has been working, for them at least. We normals are now expected to defer and submit to the commands of unelected functionaries bossing us around for...
  • GOP sees opening to revive attacks on Fauci in email trove

    WASHINGTON - Dr. Anthony Fauci has been a political lightning rod since the early days of the pandemic, lionized by the left as a beacon of truth in an administration that badly mismanaged the pandemic and villainized by the right as a misguided, spotlight-seeking bureaucrat seeking to undermine former President Donald Trump. But with the release of a trove of Fauci’s emails this week, Republicans’ attacks on the nation’s top government infectious-diseases expert have gone into overdrive. On conservative news channels, Fauci — who now serves as President Joe Biden’s pandemic adviser — has been pilloried as a liar who...

    The New York Post ^ | May 29, 2021 | Michael Goodwin
    It has been said that “everything is about sex, except sex, which is about power.” An intriguing notion, but incomplete. Speech, especially the fight to control the speech of others, is also about power. How else to describe Facebook’s ban on users sharing the claim the COVID-19 virus came from a Chinese lab? The sudden lifting of the ban, following a White House plan to investigate the pandemic’s cause, only underscores the social media giant’s desire to restrict ­users’ speech. Now you can’t, now you can. ­Either way, it’s speech control. If just Facebook and others in Big Tech lusted...

    When I hear prominent conservative media commentators and brainy columnists call America-haters bent on destroying our noble Constitutional Republic “progressives” I feel the top of my head may fly up and stick on the ceiling. They should know better. The sickening behavior of these tyrannical anarchists are the very opposite of progressive which Webster defines as “continuous improvement; the development of an individual or group in a direction considered more beneficial than and superior to the previous level.” There’s nothing beneficial for us as citizens or our nation about lawlessness, destruction of private property by black-masked Antifa terrorists, attacks on...

    One of the more insane developments from the tragic shooting death of knife wielding Ma'Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, has been the emergence of a desperate fantasy from the political left: The "Let the kids have their knife fights" coalition that must think "West Side Story" is real life. Valerie Jarrett, the former Obama administration adviser, offered her idiotic notion, echoed by many others. "A Black teenage girl named Ma'Khia Byrant was killed because a police officer immediately decided to shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight," Jarrett tweeted. "Demand accountability. Fight for justice. #BlackLivesMatter."...

    West Virginia communities are at the top of the list for a federal interagency organization aiming to support struggling coalfields residents. The task force that reports to President Joe Biden has started identifying federal funding to try to help, named a West Virginian as its executive director and has promised to embark on a series of town halls to hear from residents. The White House Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization also named 25 areas that need help. No. 1 was southern West Virginia. No. 3 was the area surrounding Wheeling, which means West...

    It is approximately 110 miles between Columbus, Ohio, and Cincinnati, Ohio. But apparently, news travels slowly between those two communities because LeBron James and the national media have not yet mentioned Monday’s death of 13-year-old Nyaira Givens who was stabbed to death by another 13-year-old girl during a fight near her family’s home in Winton Hills, a suburb of Cincinnati. Joy Reid’s producers need to reach out to Mr. Jackson in Cincinnati and invite him to be a guest on her show. Bring back Prof. Cooper — Mr. Jackson might have a different perspective to offer about “young black girls.”...

    Forget Orwell’s “1984,” let’s talk about something that happened in the actual 1984. That year, the movie “Night of the Comet” appeared in theatres. It was a bad movie but the plot was interesting. In short, a comet passed close to Earth and either vaporized everyone or turned them into zombies. Almost everyone. 18-year-old Regina "Reggie" Belmont, played by actress Catherine Mary Stewart survived because she was in a steel movie projection room inside a theatre. Anyone who spent the night in a steel structure had avoided vaporization and zombification. And so it went. A small group of survivors with...

    Our Chinese friends are eating our lunch, and we seem to constantly be looking for ways to make it easier for them to do so. The flagellants are practitioners of an extreme form of mortification of their own flesh by whipping it with various instruments. It was most notably a fourteenth-century movement within the Catholic Church. It served as a sort of self-inflicted penance for the practitioners-penance for sins actual and imagined. There is a Chinese word, baizou (pronounced "bye-tsaw"), which refers insultingly to educated western people who advocate for peace and equality only to satisfy their own feelings of...

    They really wanted it to be Trump’s fault, didn’t they? After the news broke regarding a mass shooting at three different spas in Atlanta, far leftists pounced on the story like Eric Swalwell on a Chinese spy. Several high-profile leftists on Twitter hoped speculated that as more information came out, it would be discovered that the shooter was a rabid Trump supporter inspired by the Orange Man to commit murder.On Tuesday, Robert Aaron Long allegedly shot and killed eight people at three different spa locations in Atlanta. CNN reported that “of those who died, six were Asian and two were...
  • H.R. 1 Is a Threat to American Democracy. Period.

    National Interest ^ | 3/10/2021 | Hans von Spakovsky
    H.R. 1 would mandate same-day and automatic voter registration, and encourage vote trafficking of absentee ballots. It would eviscerate state voter ID laws and limit the ability of states to verify the accuracy of their voter registration lists. This would institutionalize the worst changes in election rules that occurred during the 2020 election. But H.R. 1 would go even further in increasing the security weaknesses inherent in the current “honor” voter registration and voting system that exists in states across the country. Anyone who doubts that fraud occurs is living in a dreamland. When the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Indiana’s...

    VALENTINE, Neb. – “Land: see Snatch.” On first look, the Biden Administration’s “30 x 30” plan looks like a scheme cooked up by Hedley Lamarr, the main villain from Mel Brooks’ “Blazing Saddles.” However, far from the comedic genius of the late Harvey Korman, the new Federal land grab is a serious threat to private property owners in the United States. And it’s moving fast.. Just a few days into office, President Joe Biden released a flurry of executive orders, among them being through Executive Order 14008, “Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad” (86 Fed. Reg. 7,619), which...

    The progressives running the Biden administration are planning a two-pronged strategy to attack traditional suburban families where they live — in their homes and schools. The Biden campaign platform, largely written by Bernie Sanders and his supporters, called for initiatives for equity in housing and education. Going forward, these will translate into actions by HUD) to assert its policy to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing (AFH) and for the Department of Education to impose Critical Race Theory (CRT) to attack both real and intellectual property. The strategy got underway with the new president's executive order on equity that calls for "an...
