Miley Cyrus and the Post-Gender Generation

Jeremy Egerer  . . . "The major difference between the last time this happened and the present is that today's invading "barbarians" call masculinity machismo, and our deviants are considered by our intelligentsia not as deviants, but as moralists.

And perhaps this is why Miley's so shocking: not because what she's doing is actually anything new, but because she's backed by an army of militant pantsuits who say that what she's doing is right.  The New York Times has gone so far as to call her the avatar of the post-gender generation – as if the overwhelming majority of youngsters these days had already been polled and said they were tired of seeing pretty girls.  Of course, there are some of them who are sick of seeing pretty girls – and they are probably all ugly girls.  They're the minority of our children who've been so terribly cursed with terrible taste and minimal talents that they want to be themselves without anyone left to criticize them.  And they are getting what they want – almost.  They're getting it from the authorities, from their professors, and from the president.  Whom they are not getting it from (if they are straight) is everyone they really want to have sex with, because the people they want to have sex with are having sex with people who are sexually attractive." . . .

The Phony Charge of Imperialism made us impotent in the face of evil

By Joseph Loconte
"This criticism persisted even after the German war machine had overrun half a dozen European states, captured Paris and bombed London -- after the pathologies of Nazi rule became widely known. How could some of America's most prominent religious thinkers have so badly misjudged Hitler's gathering storm?"
. . . "Perhaps, after Saddam's defeat, we might hope for an exorcism of this spirit from the war's detractors. That plainly was Mumford's wish in 1941. "A human society in which men will not help their neighbors to resist evil and struggle for justice will presently cease to exist as a society," he warned, "since it will lack even the animal loyalties that are necessary for survival.". . .

The comparison with the 1930s is inevitable because we see the same mindset in the democracies; the refusal to see evil and the hope that it will not in the end be evil, but peaceful.

The peace movement of the 1930s made the Holocaust inevitable --- by accident
 . . . "It was not quite thus in the 1930s. Like today, the very nicest people, the most thoughtful people, the most progressive people, the people with the highest degree of social and moral conscience, people, in short, like you and me - all aligned themselves with Hitler's interests and brought about the totally unnecessary second World War - which was very nearly lost, even after the death of 50 million people. Even though it was won in the end, it was not won soon enough to prevent making the unthinkable - the Holocaust - inevitable.
"And among those categories of people - the very nicest, the most thoughtful, the most progressive, those with the highest degree of social and moral conscience - it is not self-regard to count not only the cream of American Jewry, but probably the majority." . . .

Black Lives Matter supporter arrested for threat to purge town of all whites. Some Harley riders may agree?

"On Wednesday, 20-year-old Carlos Anthony Hollins of Waldorf, Maryland, was arrested by the Charles County Sheriff’s Office for a threat of mass violence against all white people in the town of La Plata. Earlier in the day, he allegedly issued a tweet threatening to murder all of the white people in the community.

“ 'IM NOT GONNA STAND FOR THIS NO. MORE. TONIGHT WE PURGE! KILL ALL THE WHITE PPL IN THE TOWN OF LA PLATA,” he wrote in the short message that has since been deleted. The message ended with the hashtag "#BlackLivesMatter." He later claimed it was a joke, but law enforcement officers apparently failed to see the humor in his tweet.

"Around 4:43 p.m. local time, authorities were alerted to the tweet. Department heads took appropriate precautions, the BayNet said, adding extra officers to patrol the community. Later, Hollins posted another tweet with a video claiming to turn himself in to police." . . .

Glaciers Have Been Disappearing For Hundreds Of Years

Real Science
"Climate morons note that most of the world’s glaciers are melting, but are too ignorant to know that this started hundreds of years ago. It has nothing to do with CO2.

American Jews' Blind Support of The Democratic Party Is Reason For Iran Deal Passing

The Lid

"Now that Obama has his 34 Senators and a veto the anti-Iran bill cannot be overturned the postmortems have started. Some like an IBD Editorial said, "Senate Democrats Favoring Iran Deal Have Blood On Their Hands." My friend Joel Pollack at Breitbart argued that this proved the Antisemitic meme that the Jews control foreign policy wasn't true, "Iran Deal: The ‘Israel Lobby’ is Dead– and Obama Killed It." I would argue that they are both partially correct but are omitting possibly the biggest enabler. It was Jewicide, years of blind loyalty to the American Jewish community created an environment where the Democrats knew they could support a lousy deal without electoral retribution from the key Jewish voting block.

"Allow me to put it a different way, over thirty years ago Secretary of State James Baker said "F**k the Jews they won't vote for us anyway." Truth is Bush #41 was lousy on Jewish issues. But since then Because most American Jews have a blind loyalty to the Democratic Party no matter the policy, today the Democrats act as if their stance is "F**k the Jews they will vote for us whatever we do!' " . . .

Denali can also be spelled "Denial"

"The president has journeyed to the 57th state (or is it the 56th?) in order to take credit for new oil drilling and to decry the imminent environmental disaster the world faces from, uh, new oil drilling. Say what you will about the man, but he does have a gift for hypocrisy.

"Speaking of which, while in Alaska Mr. Obama will also be taping a guest appearance on the popular reality series "Running Wild with Bear Grylls" in which the president will demonstrate the wilderness survival skills he's honed during multiple visits to Martha's Vineyard.

"Scheduled events include discussing climate change while hiking along a glacier which has shrunken by a terrifying 1.25 miles "in recent decades" and, if circumstances allow, killing and devouring a wild dog topped with Indonesian "Soetoro sauce."

"On a military note, the president is calling for the construction and deployment of more icebreakers in arctic waters to help counterbalance the growing and aggressive dominance of Russia in the region. Currently, Vladimir Putin has 41 icebreakers and Obama only has two. Unless you're willing to include "Hi there, is this your first visit to Man's Country?"

"The president will be leaving one additional mark on Alaska (not unlike writing his name in the snow) by renaming America's highest peak - thereby creating thousands of jobs for people in the business of printing maps and atlases.

"As a gesture of support to Alaska's native population, what was formerly Mt. McKinley will now be known as "Denali" - which is the traditional Athabascan name meaning "The High One."

"Perhaps not coincidentally, this was also the president's nickname in the Choom Gang."

How Illegal Immigration Finally Turned Off the Public

"Pope Francis will go on ABC 20/20 and grant a virtual audience to poor Americans via satellite this Friday night. One of the pope’s groups will be Hispanic migrants in a South Texas church. They’re the only Texans who won’t be at a stadium worshipping high school football during the telecast."  Comedian Argus Hamilton
Victor Davis Hanson: How Illegal Immigration Finally Turned Off the Public                                "If there were not a Donald Trump, he would likely have had to have been invented."

"Why did the illegal-immigration issue launch Donald Trump’s campaign? Why did his recent tense press conference exchange with Univision’s Jorge Ramos please even some of Trump’s liberal critics? What is it about illegal immigration that has finally turned off so many Americans?"

. . . 
" It is alleged that Donald Trump is a demagogue who whips the ignorant up. Perhaps. But on matters of immigration he came late and often in antithesis to his own former positions. The truth is that the illegal-immigration lobby was its own worst enemy, its message couched in racism, illegality, untruth — and finally incoherence.  People tired of being called racists by racial chauvinists, of being dubbed insensitive by unfeeling opportunists, and of being called politically naive by political manipulators."

Report: Cop-killer emoji appears in Houston after murder of police officer

 This stenciled graffiti of a gun pointed at an officer's head is appearing in Houston, Texas, where Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth was murdered execution-style.
This stenciled graffiti of a gun pointed at an officer's head is appearing in Houston, Texas, where Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth was murdered execution-style.

"On Tuesday, Houston ABC affiliate KTRK reported that it has spotted disturbing anti-cop graffiti stenciled in at least four places around the city in the wake of the murder of Harris County Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth. Others have reported seeing it as well. The graffiti consists of a gun pointing at the head of a police officer.

" 'I can't believe that there are people out there so heartless and so ruthless to put something on there before this deputy is even buried," HPD Union President Ray Hunt told KTRK. "It does nothing to help to help morale in the police department and does nothing to help the Goforth family."

"Fox 26 reporter Angela Chen said that at least one business has covered the graffiti up. In something of an understatement, Chen said the stenciled graffiti is "a horrific thing to see, especially for the children and family of slain police officers." In a tweet, she also cited police who said the graffiti is the work of someone stirring the pot." . . .

Obama pander update: Is 'Tejas' next on the pandering checklist?

 Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel
Silvio Canto, Jr.  "A new poll shows that 71% of Americans are unhappy with the direction of the country.  
President Obama's overall job approval is 44.7% at RCP but 39% on foreign policy.  Obamacare is at 40%, and the Iran nuclear deal is a very tough sell.

"Our "let me pander to distract you from my lousy record" President Obama has done it again.  

"He is now changing the name of Mt. McKinley to Mt. Denali:"
. . . 

Political Cartoons by Nate Beeler
"He couldn't even get 60 Democrat senators to pass immigration reform, gun control, climate change, or the DREAM Act!  So he writes an executive order legalizing people or issues or EPA rules without regard for Congress.

"Is Texas next?  Will he soon rename Texas "Tejas"?  Why not?  Get ready for "Nuevo Mejico"!  

"He's gotta get a lot of disillusioned Hispanics interested in the Clinton or Biden campaign.  So it's time to pander!

Professors threaten bad grades for saying ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ ‘female’   "Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” "male," and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students."

UTK student refuses ‘ze, xe, xyr, zirs’ gender-neutral pronouns: ‘I will not change my entire vocabulary’ . . .

In that case, your opinions and views are automatically condemned—and your character and integrity are belittled." . . . 

When silly people become armed and violent: Black Activist’s Radio Show In TX Called For Murder Of Cops Days Before Deputy Was Murdered 

Black ‘Activist’ Podcast Calling For Killing Of Cops Gets Pulled After Publicity
. . . "The Texas-based radio show’s guests called for lynching white people and taking pictures of  people still hanging in trees. Another caller spoke of the need for blacks to kill cops to “turn the tide.” . . .

Obama changing name of Alaska's Mount McKinley to Denali

Deputy Goforth and his family (Image source: KHOU-TV) Read Statement Obama Issued After Calling Widow of Texas Deputy Killed in Ambush

"Look at what’s happened to race relations under Obama. In the run-up to the 2008 election, many liberals claimed that electing Obama would bring racial healing to America but Rush Limbaugh correctly predicted that Obama would make things worse.

"How right he was.

"We haven’t located the audio but here’s a transcript from Rush’s website in 2013 where he talked about his 2008 predictions:" :

"As Predicted, Race Relations in America Have Worsened Since Obama's Election"
. . . Let us fast forward to January of 2009.
"Obama has been inaugurated president and he proposes his first bit of legislation. Let's say that it's -- I don't know -- some civil rights-oriented thing, and a bunch of people start howling. You know that the race industry can't wait for this. Any criticism of Obama, the first black president, is going to be met with charges of racism by the likes of the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton. It will make their race business all that much more prominent.
"RUSH:  The point is that back in 2008, I predicted that Obama's election would not ameliorate race problems. It would not eliminate them. It would not remove from this country the tag of racism and slavery and racism and prejudice; it would exacerbate it, because no criticism of Obama would be permitted.  Any criticism of Obama would be called racism, and I predicted it would probably get worse." . . .
