  • Will 2024 be 1984?-Call it fascism, because that’s what it is.

    From branding parents speaking out against critical race theory and sexual ideology in schools as terrorists to the Mar-a-Lago raid, Attorney General Merrick Garland’s radicalized Justice Department transforms pre-election political opposition into national security threats. The infamous DOJ letter on schools was sent out a month before the gubernatorial election in Virginia, where the National School Board Association, not to mention much of the D.C. establishment, is based. Much as Garland’s DOJ operatives feared, the school protests helped elect Gov. Glenn Younkin and nearly toppled New Jersey’s Democrat governor in the bargain. The Mar-a-Lago raid was carefully timed around the...

    NewsGuard, the establishment “news-rating” project that presents itself as a source of expert knowledge on which news sources can be trusted and which ones cannot, will be rolling out to millions of American schoolchildren due to a partnership with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). Per Axios, the AFT will purchase NewsGuard licenses for all of its 1.7 million teachers, in a major deal for the news-rating project. NewsGuard has had a reputation as a project of the political establishment since its inception. NewsGuard maintains a list of news outlets it considers “trustworthy” and “untrustworthy,” data which it uses in...
  • New York Times Thought Police Ask: Should Classic Rock Songs Be Toppled Like Confederate Statues?

    Hide your classic rock LP’s. The thought police at the New York Times are coming for them. The New York Times opinion section has run a column advocating for classic rock songs like Don McLean’s “American Pie” to be reconsidered and maybe even “toppled” like historic Confederate statues, arguing that reevaluating beloved songs will help create a world that is “inclusive and more just.” Other rock singers ripe for cancellation include Eric Clapton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and even Elvis Presley. Jennifer Finney Boylan, who is a male-to-female transgender, laid out the case in the op-ed titled “Should Classic...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon on Monday during the handoff from Chris Cuomo said that supporters of former President Donald Trump were not in “reality” and should face consequences for the damage they’re doing to our democracy by believing Trump won in 2020. Lemon said, “There is one political party in this country that is working on reality, and that is the Democratic Party. But even in that, they’re not governing very well at the moment. They are not performing the duty of being good politicians in the moment. They don’t see the urgency of what is happening across the country...

    Larry Sanger, who co-founded Wikipedia in 2001, says that the free online encyclopedia has become “more one-sided than ever” and is dominated by liberal sources in such a way that makes it “an opponent of vigorous democracy.” “Wikipedia openly repudiates neutrality, and therefore it is shamelessly hypocritical in how it continues to pay lip service to its “neutral point of view” policy,’” Sanger wrote on his website last week. “A lot of mainstream news stories are broken only in Fox News, the Daily Mail, and the New York Post—all of which are banned from use as sources by Wikipedia.” “In...

    White leftist politicians and hipsters have already killed wokeness in American culture. They just don’t know it yet. There’s been this repeating cultural joke occurring throughout my lifetime that, for some reason, never seems to be recognized by those who are ridiculed by its many iterations. That is, when liberal white hipsters adopt any cultural fad, they manage to end the fad by making it spectacularly unpopular in no time flat. A terrific modern example of this might be liberal white hipsters co-opting fashion and social trends that were prominent in gay culture in the early aughts. Shows like “Queer...

    VIDEOSusan Hennessey, who was a major Trump-Russia collusion conspiracist, has just been hired to be a senior counsel for the National Security Division of the Harris-Biden Justice Department. However, you won't feel much security knowing how deranged she was over the Mueller investigation and how she fell to pieces after the Mueller Report showed NO Trump-Russia collusion. Ahead of her hiring she deleted most of her deranged highly partisan tweets on Twitter. Unfortunately for her, the Internet is FOREVER and here we have a video record of just how mental she has been about President Donald Trump the past few...

    Over the past few years, the term “woke” has been among the most bandied-about words in the English language. For those of us in our alleged golden years, we have always assumed woke is the past tense or past participle of wake (the state of being awake after sleeping). However, the current usage belies that assumption. In checking with the ever-reliable Urban Dictionary, the present-day meaning of woke is: “The act of being very pretentious about how much you care about a social issue.” In light of the mindset of many leftists and liberals, “very pretentious” pretty much says it...

    Deep in the false and fevered swamps of fake news and fake history resides a third mendacious denizen—fake definitions. Appearing first with a hiss in the Garden of old (“Did God really say?”), fake definitions have become the mother’s milk of Leftist progressives.Their aim is to recast generally understood words and cultural concepts—treating the common understanding as pejoratively as possible. The Left’s targets are those things not conforming to their political agenda. Therefore, efforts at fiscal responsibility are labeled “draconian” and “mean-spirited.” Those seeking to preserve historic moral imperatives and a Biblical understanding of marriage and human sexuality are “homophobic.“...

    These steps, experts say, could prod more people to abandon the scourge of hoaxes and lies. Last month, millions of Americans watched as President Biden took the oath of office and, in a high-minded Inaugural Address, called for a new era of American unity. But plenty of other Americans weren’t paying attention to Mr. Biden’s speech. They were too busy watching YouTube videos alleging that the inauguration was a prerecorded hoax that had been filmed on a Hollywood soundstage. Or they were melting down in QAnon group chats, trying to figure out why former President Donald J. Trump wasn’t interrupting...

    The recent spate of Democrat politicians and pundits calling for the "re-education" of Trump voters is chilling and reminds me of an incident I experienced in 2019. As a professional speaker, only once I have been disinvited to speak in my 36-year career, while otherwise delivering 1,056 presentations to a virtual who's who of prominent organizations, often for exceedingly high speaker fees. The dis-invitation, months after the original invitation, occurred in Raleigh, North Carolina. In February 2019, after hearing a general call for speakers, I forwarded my speaking credentials and suggested a topic to the group's meeting planner. On the...

    Like many people, I attended school, K-12, and four years in college. I then spent two years in graduate school. For all the lessons I was taught and all the reading I've done – thousands of books – added to all the historical movies, TV shows, and documentaries that I've watched, I never once was told that the barbarians who invaded Rome were, indeed, justified. The Real BarbariansThe Romans were the ones who acted like barbarians to their captors and to the slaves that they made out of them. This 'personal' revelation came to me as a result of watching...

    Blazing Saddles is currently streaming on HBO Max, along with a new introduction that automatically plays before the Mel Brooks classic begins… TCM host and University of Chicago cinema and media studies professor Jacqueline Stewart provides the intro to Blazing Saddles. She also did the intro for Gone With the Wind. A little more than three-minutes long, Stewart’s intro puts the bigotry and racist language in context, the host saying, “as the storyline implies the issue of race is front and center in Blazing Saddles. And racist language and attitudes pervade the film. But those attitudes are espoused by characters...

    Days of Our Lives actress Melissa Reeves is catching heat from her co-stars and the long-running soap’s fans for coming out against the Black Lives Matter movement. Earlier this week it was revealed that Reeves — who has played Jennifer Horton on the NBC sudser on and off for the past three decades — “liked” several anti-BLM posts from right-wing activist Candace Owens on Instagram. Reeves’ Days cousin, Linsey Godfrey, wasted little time responding. After one Twitter user defended Reeves’ right to express her opinion, Godfrey countered, “Nah there is no difference of opinion on racism, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia.”...

    Due process is not the strong suit of mobs. Neither is nuance, open discussion, or disagreement. These inherent defects should be painfully obvious as mobs pull down statues, seize sections of cities, and demand the public approach them on bended knee, literally. Anyone who dares push back, perhaps with a mild tweet saying “All lives matter,” faces immediate censure. If the mob is successful, any offenders will lose their jobs. Feckless employers are all too eager to appease the mob and hope it turns on another target. In this perilous environment, the most frenzied voices do more than dominate the...

    James Bennet, the Editorial Page editor at The New York Times resigned over the weekend after backlash over an op-ed by US Sen. Tom Cotton. Debate is no longer allowed in America’s liberal newsrooms, and the left has the scalps to prove it. James Bennet is out as NY Times editorial-page editor; Stan Wischnowski, as top editor at The Philadelphia Inquirer. Neither was allowed to stay even after humiliating themselves by admitting their thought crimes and hailing the virtues of the lynch mobs. Bennet’s sin: His paper published an opinion column by a US senator arguing for deploying the military...

    To @realdonaldtrump Through my ongoing conversations with friends, teammates, and leaders in the black community, I realize this is not an issue about the American flag. It has never been. We can no longer use the flag to turn people away or distract them from the real issues that face our black communities. We did this back in 2017, and regretfully I brought it back with my comments this week. We must stop talking about the flag and shift our attention to the real issues of systemic racial injustice, economic oppression, police brutality, and judicial & prison reform. We are...

Such “anti-IQ” words set society's Einsteins apart, she claimed, with the result that geeks end up “feeling like they’re a misfit and don’t belong.”Calling someone a swot, whizkid, brainbox, smart-arse, or...
