A Handy Guide To Facial Expressions

Babylon Bee  "How do you tell if someone is hatefully sneering at you or just smiling? It's a difficult task.

"We consulted with over five hundred facial expression experts, showing them various images and asking them to identify which ones were a normal human emotion and which ones were literally Hitler. If a video ever comes out of someone making one of these expressions and you need a quick hot take to tweet out, consult this handy chart:

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn Bringing Knoxville Dad Whose Son Was Killed by Illegal Alien to SOTU

Weasel Zippers

"Republican invites American family who lost a son allegedly killed by an illegal alien. Democrats invite an illegal alien. And there in a nutshell, is all you need to know about the two parties. 
Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.) announced on Thursday that a Knoxville firefighter whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant will be her guest at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next Tuesday.
Twenty-two-year-old Pierce Corcoran was killed just after Christmas when he was hit by Francisco Eduardo Franco Cambrany, a 44-year-old illegal immigrant who was charged with criminally negligent homicide and driving without a license or insurance. Blackburn’s guest for the address will be his father, Knoxville fire captain D.J. Corcoran, whose wife will also be in attendance as the guest of Rep. Tim Burchett (R., Tenn.).
“The tragedy the Corcoran family has endured is one no family should ever have to experience,” Blackburn said. “The attendance of Pierce’s parents at the State of the Union serves as a reminder that we as a Congress have a duty to keep the American people safe. It is an honor to attend with Captain Corcoran.' ” . . .

If Democrats Hadn’t Embraced Crazy, Howard Schultz Wouldn’t Be A Threat To Them

Derek Hunter  "He’s just a man, one who happens to be very wealthy. A very wealthy man who is considering using a slice of his substantial fortune to run for president of the United States. Not as a Republican or a Democrat, as an independent. That fact has progressive activists beside themselves with rage that this man, former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, could be the spoiler of their plans to win the 2020 election. The question is this: are their fears founded?
Tom Stiglich
"Schultz is worth in the neighborhood of $3.5 billion, which is a very nice neighborhood. I, like most people, would be happy to simply live in the same zip code as a neighborhood like that. The air there always smells like fresh flowers and some kind of food most of us couldn’t pronounce, let alone imagine tasting.
"That sort of life lends itself to both delusions of grandeur and actual grandeur, provided you didn’t arrive at it through the luck of birth. People who earn great wealth through means not related to numbered balls falling out of a machine matching a $2 ticket tend to know the value of a dollar. "They’ve worked for it, worked hard, and took risks to get it. That generally means they don’t set piles of it on fire on vanity projects or out of boredom.
"This is why the idea of Schultz should concern everyone, not just Democrats. The same, by the way, goes for another progressive billionaire, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Unlike Schultz, Bloomberg, should he run, will run as a Democrat. It’s in no small part how Donald Trump became president, so it’s a model that has been shown to work." . . .

Who Benefits From Mass Immigration? Not You!

Ann Coulter

"Assiduous readers of my columns know that I have frequently made the point that America's immigration policies benefit only three groups of people: 1) rich Americans with a lot of employees, 2) the immigrants themselves, and 3) their grandmothers back in Chiapas.

"The money illegal immigrants send out of the country doesn't come from their low wages. It comes from the taxpayers, who are required to subsidize immigrants so that investment bankers can have cheap nannies. Yes, it is a problem that they couldn't possibly live on what I pay them, but that's where YOU come in, taxpayers!

"When the rich merely have to pay Social Security taxes on their nannies, they quickly say, Oh, never mind, as we saw in the 1990s, when Bill Clinton's first two female attorney general nominees had to withdraw because of the illegal aliens raising their kids, and we finally ended up with Janet Reno.

"Zoe Baird, the first nominee caught up in Nannygate, promptly fired her illegal alien nanny and chauffeur, Lillian and Victor Corderos, who were deported.

"That's how much the rich love Latino immigrants! As Baird's spokeswoman, Jamie Gorelick, said at the time: "I think it truly pains them that Lillian has had to pay this price. ... They have true affection for her.' " . . .

"I was born in New York"; how many will be around to say that after a few years?

The People's Cube

"Albany, NY -- New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to make major changes in the name of progress and tolerance. These will appeal to liberal-progressives, and benefit ex cons and mass murderers across the nation. Signing off on these new policies will launch the governor's bid for his presidential run among the 353,739 candidates now on the Democrat ticket.
"The governor just signed into law after ending the death penalty, a woman's right to abort about-to-be-born babies who could live outside the womb - up to the moment of birth.
"Shrugging off criticism of having passed a death sentence on babies after having ended the death penalty for murderers, Cuomo said, "Our base is what matters, not what people think."
"The new law means, if a mother chose to abort as soon as she is experiencing labor pains, or second thoughts, whichever came first, she can have the child's head liquified and sucked out with a Hoover. In the name of progress, doctors will give classes to would-be serial killers and other progressives who might try their hands at this soon-to-be-popularized sport." . . .

Democrat-governed Virginia hopes to one-up New York:
Virginia Governor Asked Whether He Supports Abortion While Woman Is Giving Birth. His Response Is Bizarre  . . “ 'If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said in a WTOP interview." . . .
"Aborting a baby after it has been born is illegal." . . .
“ 'Clearly, this kind of legislation is an attempt to create legal infanticide as viable babies are aborted to the cheers of abortion extremists,” Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins said in a statement."

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam Defends Leaving Infants to Die After Birth  . . . "Later in the interview, he did disagree with Tran’s attempt in the bill to lift a requirement for multiple physicians to weigh in on the need for a late-term abortion.
“ 'I think it’s always good to get a second opinion,” he said, “and for at least two providers to be involved in that decision because these decisions shouldn’t be taken lightly.' ”

Abortion: where are we headed?

Rich Terrell

The truth about Virginia Democrats and abortion becomes a deep embarrassment
"Deranged Democrats in the Old Dominion are candidly admitting their repulsive priorities, creating problems for more practical members of their party. Even abortion fans refuse to defend Virginia governor’s candor on post-birth murder of abortion-surviving infant.  It is both stomach-turning and amusing to watch abortion enthusiasts refuse to address the casual truth-telling about the degree to which many Democrats are willing to go in order to prevent a new human being survive birth should the mother want it eliminated." . . .

. . .The Democrats are now captive to their most extreme supporters, and are pushing proposals and new laws that are deeply unpopular with the mainstream of American life. Not just on abortion, but on taxation, national security, the border and many other areas of life. Trump Derangement Syndrome, after all, is derangement.  . . .

The Infanticide Craze   So much for "safe and rare".
"Democrats are increasingly explicit in their support for killing unborn children at any stage of pregnancy — and sometimes even of denying normal medical care to born children." . . .

What's WRONG with AMERICA! 3rd-Trimester ABORTION Bills: 'MORALLY Repugnant' “This is morally repugnant,” Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., said in a statement to National Review. “In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to ‘keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.’ I don’t care what party you’re from — if you can’t say that it’s wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office.”
Virginia Del. Kathy Tran Submitted Bill To Save Caterpillars On Same Day As Late-Stage Abortion Bill  "The Democratic Virginia delegate who has recently come under fire for sponsoring a bill in the Virginia House of Delegates that would allow the termination of a pregnancy up to 40 weeks old, is also the chief patron of a bill that would protect the lives of “fall cankerworms” during certain months.
"Democratic Virginia Del. Kathy Tran introduced “House Bill No. 2495 – Fall cankerworm; spraying prohibited during certain months” on Jan. 9, the same day as “House Bill No. 2491 — Abortion; eliminate certain requirements.”
"Tran came under fire Tuesday for her support of legislation that would allow an abortion to be performed just moments before the birth of a child. (RELATED: VA Considering Bill Legalizing Abortion Until 40 Weeks In Pregnancy)" . . .
. . .
 “Where it’s obvious a woman is about to give birth…would that be a point at which she could still request an abortion?” Republican Del. Todd Gilbert asked Tran. (RELATED: Trump Rips Virginia Democrats On Abortion Comments)
“My bill would allow that, yes,” she confirmed.
"Tran’s other piece of legislation aims to protect insects such as “gypsy moths” and “cankerworms.”
According to Virginia’s Legislative Information System, House Bill No. 2495 is:
A BILL to amend and reenact § 15.2-2403 of the Code of Virginia and to amend the Code of Virginia by adding in Article 1 of Chapter 9 of Title 15.2 a section numbered 15.2-926.4, relating to cankerworms; eradication; prohibition on spraying during certain months.
"Tran apparently deleted all of her social media following backlash to her abortion bill." . . .

 Perhaps Obama would give the newborn a couple of aspirins as he waits for them to die:

A few words about those National Anthem Performers at sports events

From a good friend in Tillamook County, Oregon comes this shared post:

"So with all the kindness I can muster, I give this one piece of advice to the next pop star who is asked to sing the National Anthem at a sporting event: Save the vocal gymnastics and the physical gyrations for your concerts. Just sing this song the way you were taught to sing it in kindergarten - straight up, no styling. Sing it with the constant awareness that there are soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines watching you from bases and outposts all over the world. Don't make them cringe with your self-centered ego gratification.
Sing it as if you are standing before a row of 86-year-old WWII vets wearing their Purple Hearts, Silver Stars and flag pins on their cardigans and you want them to be proud of you for honoring them and the country they love, not because you want them to think you are a superstar musician. They could see that from your costume, makeup and your entourage.
Sing 'The Star Spangled Banner' with the courtesy and humility that tells the audience that it is about America, not you."

Gladys Knight, an Atlanta native and "Empress of Soul," will sing the Super Bowl 53 national anthem prior to kickoff in 2019.

Hear this if you can take it:

Here's how it deserves to be sung, the way the NY Yankees did it once:

Academia: the incubator for total abortion and all other bad ideas

Bookworm Room

Academia — that is, the world of colleges and universities — is the incubator for all of the worst ideas in America, with abortion as the latest example.

. . . AND NOW TO MY POINT: Whatever starts in academia does not stay in academia. Academia is where:

  • Kids are taught to hate individual liberty and the free market, and to embrace all manners of socialism and other totalitarian governance;
  • Bishops are educated and then refuse to excommunicate Catholic politicians who vote for “post-birth abortions” (i.e., murder);
  • Jews and Asians, who are the people most likely to send their kids to college, produce generations of people who aggressively advocate for policies that are terribly damaging to them, everything from antisemitism and Israel hatred to academic quotas;
  • People are taught that democratic, pluralist, open Israel is evil and that the Palestinian communities, rife with misogyny, homophobia, antisemitism, anti-Americanism, anti-Westernism, anti-Christianity, anti-Hinduism, and myriad other anti’s and phobias, are superb societies that should be allowed to use genocide to eliminate Israel;
  • Climate change madness, which is not supported by a scintilla of actual science, but does rely on a regular input of fraudulent temperature data, finds its intellectual home; where young people are taught that there is no such things as biological gender;
  • Young people are told that their feelings trump everything and that rational thinking is a product of toxic, white masculinity;
  • Non-white people are taught anti-white racism;
  • Women are taught to hate men and men are taught that they are rapists; and
  • Every other mad idea that pollutes the Western world is born and grows.
"These ideas, unless stopped, will destroy our world. We already see how the end plays out with the abortion, which went from Singer’s boring academic arguments to the official position of the pediatrician governor of Virginia."

Rep. Jackie Speier Nominates Christine Blasey Ford for JFK Profiles in COURAGE Award

Socio-Political-Journal... 'Rep. Jackie Speier announced she is nominating Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who famously accused now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her nearly 40 years ago, for the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.
Cartoon added

“Nominating Dr. Christine Blasey Ford – a true American (s)hero who sacrificed so much to do what was right for our country and for the pursuit of truth of justice – for this year’s Profiles in Courage Award @JFKLibrary,” Ms. Speier, California Democrattweeted Monday evening.
"She is an inspiration to us all,” she added.
"The Profile in Courage Award is a prestigious award given out by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum once a year to public officials “at the federal, state, or local level whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership,” according to its description page. Recent recipients include former Presidents Barack Obama and George H.W. Bush.

"The Boston-based library is accepting nominations for this year’s award recipient until Thursday. A ceremony will be held at the library in May.

"Ms. Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California, testified about her allegations on Capitol Hill ahead of Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation in October. Her claims remain uncorroborated and Justice Kavanaugh has maintained his innocence." . . .

"The old Democratic party championed the working classes, wanted secure borders to protect middle-class union wage earners, and focused generous federal entitlement help on the citizen poor. Civil rights were defined as equality of opportunity for all.
"That party is long dead. An updated Hubert Humphrey or even Bill Clinton would not recognize any of the present “Democrats.”
"Even the old wing of elite liberals is mostly long gone, with its talk of legal immigration only, opposition to censorship, pro-Israel foreign policy, let-it-hang-out Sixties indulgence, and free speech.
"It was superseded by grim progressives who are not so much interested in a square, new, or fair deal for the middle classes, as an entirely different deal that redefines everything from the Bill of Rights and the very way we elect presidents and senators to an embrace of identity politics as its first principle.
"Indeed, we are currently witnessing a quite strange series of North Korean–like reeducation confessionals, from repenting erstwhile liberals and now presidential hopefuls such as Joe Biden, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, and Kirsten Gillibrand. They and other would-be candidates parade before show cameras to apologize for their prior incorrect heresies, including their erstwhile support for drug laws, tough sentencing, and border enforcement." . . .

Liberals learn nothing from history; they distort it to fit their purposes.

Trump exposed how worthless the press is

*The pattern is now drearily familiar. First, a poorly attributed story will break — say, “Source: Donald Trump Killed Leon Trotsky Back in 1940.”  National Review
Don Surber  "In a delightful column, Charles C.W. Cooke, editor of National Review Online, skewered the Washington press corps, which is broken.
" He blamed not President Donald John Trump for this breakdown. Of course not. President Trump exposed how worthless the press is.
Cooke wrote, "Not since Florence Foster Jenkins [an heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer, despite having a terrible singing voice] have Americans been treated to such an excruciating example of self-delusion. The most vocal among the press corps’ ranks cast themselves openly as firefighters when, at worst, they are pyromaniacs and, at best, they are obsequious asbestos salesmen. 'You never get it right, do you?' Sybil Fawlty told Basil in Fawlty Towers. 'You’re either crawling all over them licking their boots or spitting poison at them like some Benzedrine puff adder.' There is a great deal of space between apologist and bête noire. In the newsrooms of America, that space is empty."
" Befitting his station as a journalist, Cooke exhibited no self-awareness as he ignored the numerous leaps to conclusion that his site recently made, most notably saying the Covington Catholic High boys spit on the cross.

"But his lampoon of the papers was fun." . . .

Flipping, flopping, backtracking, Kamala Harris just isn't ready for prime time . . . "Which makes her look pretty wretched and puppety. Did she actually think this 'me-as-president' idea through?
"Doesn't sound like it. You want to propose something crazy and sweeping, you'd better be prepared to defend the idea if you care about your credibility. Yet she backtracked on her proposal for single payer health insurance one day after she made it, to say that, well, no, she didn't really mean to say that everyone's health insurance should be taken away and everyone in the health insurance industry should be put out of work.

"Several days later, the senator minced no words during a televised town hall event in Iowa with CNN host Jake Tapper, formally endorsing Medicare for All.  It's worth noting that the town hall event was by invitation only for a select group of Iowa Democratic Party faithful and a handful of Drake University students.  Sound familiar?" . . .

When News Stories are about News Stories, Something has Gone Wrong.

Intellectual Takeout

. . . "The regular news story supported today's primary liberal narrative, but the story about the story that ended up completely subsuming the original story, supported the primary conservative narrative.
 "The primary liberal narrative has it that Whites are privileged and racist. The primary conservative narrative is that the liberal media lies to support its narrative--what has come to be called, "Fake News."
 "When it was discovered through a full video viewing of the entire episode that the students were the ones being harassed and that the Native American had served in the Marines during the Vietnam War but did not actually fight in it, the original story crumbled, and the conservative narrative took over. 
 "The original story was White kids behaving badly. The story about the story was the media behaving badly.
 "In fact, the Covington case may become the textbook case of Fake News, the one everyone points to whenever the mainstream media abandons its self-professed principles and reports the news as they would like it to be, and student Nick Sandmann the poster child of the costs of media hate speech.
 "The original--now discredited--story originated in an anonymous Tweet that could never constitute the basis of a story by any responsible news source. But, as New York Times columnist David Brooks has pointed out, "the social media tail wags the mainstream media dog." Otherwise responsible reporters now routinely pass along stories from unvetted tweets if they have been widely retweeted.

Sen. Lindsey Graham Perfectly Articulates The Post-Shutdown Situation For Democrats

Daily Wire

. . . "First, Graham stated that this may be the best chance for DACA and TPS recipients, and that the ball is now in the Democrats’ court:
The best way to get this thing to conclusion is opening up the government. The bottom line is the TPS recipients who have been here for decades as a result of natural disasters, wars, they're going to begin to lose their legal status this year. You have DACA folks who are in sort of legal limbo. The president is willing to give 1.1 million people a better life if he can get a secure border.
To my Democratic friends, you have voted in the past for wall funding greater than the president's requested. This is the first time in 12 years I've seen a deal where you secure your border and give a better life to the DACA/TPS population. If the Democrats do not work with us, the biggest losers, in my view, are gonna be the TPS/DACA recipients because this president will secure our border through executive action.
"Graham then slammed anyone who claims that the border is secure, given the constant illegal crossings (citing several recent and shocking examples), adding that if the Democratic leadership doesn’t take this opportunity to make a deal, the president will secure the border using "emergency" procedures:" . . .

The dumbest voting bloc in America?

Simon de Hundehutte"Pro-life Christians of all stripes were appalled when earlier this week the New York state legislature made abortion legal through all nine months of pregnancy.  In stark contrast to their sadness and consternation, however, the government of New York celebrated like never before: at the tip of Manhattan, the top of the Freedom Tower was lit up pink; and about 25 miles up the Hudson River, the brand new Tappan Zee Bridge (officially known as "Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge," that trophy Governor Andrew Cuomo built with taxpayer money to honor his former-governor father) was lit up in a most spectacular way, also in splashy, in-your-face pink.  The statement was clear: all women in the state -- nay, all women across America -- should be cheering and celebrating this monumental advancement for women the world over.

:But why did this so-called great achievement in human rights take so long?  Couldn't the state government have struck this blow for women much, much earlier?  The answer lies in the fact that, in the election this past fall, enough Republicans were voted out of office to make a solid majority of Democrats who could pass any legislation they dang well pleased.  And so they dang well did.". . .

"Seems like every four years, Christians complain that they have to "vote for the lesser of two evils."  And many follow that wonky wisdom by inevitably posing the Big Question: "Whom would Jesus vote for?" When that Jesus-vote question was posited during polite conversation in the 2012 election cycle, I responded, "Oh, Jesus would definitely vote for Obama – if he wanted to punish America.  If He wanted to give America another chance, He'd vote for Romney." Since America is a "free" nation (and God is all about "free choice"), Jesus lets America decide its own fate. Now, in 2016, the cry has risen again that America has to choose between two evils, and Christians on both sides of the political fence are claiming that their candidate is Jesus's choice.

Thomas Lifson: Why Trump went for a 21-day suspension of the partial shutdown, and what happens next . . . "I have a guess, based on the fact that Trump has not deployed insulting nicknames for either Schumer or Pelosi. I suspect that in the discussions that led to the agreement to set up a conference committee both sides agreed that another shutdown was in nobody’s interest, and that a compromise would benefit both parties.

The Global Failure to Teach the Truth About the Holocaust

Legal Insurrection

It’s not just the US suffering from a lack of Holocaust knowledge
"For years, there has been talking and concern about the lack of factual Holocaust knowledge and education in the United States and around the world. Education systems dominated by leftist teachers often antagonistic towards Israel are sometimes loathing to bring up the subject. It’s possible to also blame an easily accessible Internet that leads users down dark rabbit holes of Holocaust conspiracy theories.
"In “The Failure of Holocaust Education in Britain,” Rosie Whitehouse writes:
The current debate over anti-Semitism in Britain’s opposition Labour Party and the views of its leader Jeremy Corbyn have also had a negative impact on Holocaust education in the classroom and made better teacher training even more imperative. Wetherall’s students now ask about Holocaust denial and anti-Semitism. “Two to three years ago I would not have had pupils who would have heard the terms,” she said, adding that “the guidelines have not kept up with these changes, leaving teachers ill-equipped to deal with the issue.”
It’s certainly not easy to find out how it got this bad and certainly will be even harder to fix.
"The Azrieli Foundation and Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany just released a report on the lack of Holocaust education in Canada.
Among the findings:
An alarming 52% of millennials cannot name even one concentration camp or ghetto and 62% of millennials did not know that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust.
22% of millennials haven’t heard or are not sure if they have heard of the Holocaust.
Nearly one-quarter of all Canadians (23 percent) believe that substantially less than six million Jews were killed (two million or fewer) during the Holocaust, while another near-quarter (24 percent) were unsure of how many were killed.
Nearly six out of ten Canadians (57 percent) say fewer people seem to care about the Holocaust than they used to.
