Woefully Behind

Dear Diary, I’m so sorry I haven’t been around to talk to you, but I’ve been busy and things have just been happening too fast. I’ve got a line-up of proto-posts to write, but this from this morning jumped the line.

Liberals don’t annoy me when they whine about Trump’s tweeting because I know it’s all a lie and a scam, just like everything else liberals say. They don’t care that Trump is mean to girls. These cretins brought us Bill Clinton. They don’t care that Trump is vulgar. You should see what liberals, including proggy blue checks, say to me on Twitter. Let me put it this way: after the nonstop parade of death wishes, perversion accusations, and general mouth-foaming hostility the liberals traffic in every day, I’m distinctly unimpressed by Trump calling out Mika’s chin lift.

Yes. And the rest doesn’t suck either:

In an ideal world, I would love to get back to presidency dominated by gentlemen like Ronald Reagan. But we don’t live in an ideal world. Here’s the ugly reality – there is a cultural war going on, one that could get worse. This isn’t a game; there are real stakes. If you volunteer to join conservatism’s enemies to allegedly protect an ideal of decorum that this culture has long since left behind, you’re being played for a sucker. You’re either serious about winning, or you’re serious about losing.

Update (20170705): Still behind, but I came across this too by Roger Kimball. Mr Kimball is, like *some* other conservatives, not wedded to the theory of conservatism as are so many versus the facts:

Beyond that, there is the quiet reality of Trump’s dogged progress in enacting his agenda, from his judicial appointments to his regulatory reforms, from his unleashing of America’s energy potential to his emphasis on America’s military preparedness, efforts to cut taxes, repeal and replace Obamacare, create jobs, and generally to make America great again. He has yet to build his vaunted wall but illegal immigration is down by 70 percent. Why? The short, if surprising, answer is charisma: people know he means business.

The article covers a huge amount of ground and does it well. And it does it from the perspective of a conservative, erudite, reasoned, and forceful. In such a way that belies the cries of the alt-right-this-or-that that conservatism is dead.

And Another Thing

According to this article in the Telegraph, “Police arrest 12 people in Barking in connection with terror attack”.

And then what? There were people arrested after Manchester as well. I’m not seeing the headlines that indicate what sort of punishment was meted out. And I know that the UK is perfectly happy to let criminals go free after having served little ot no time.

Of the nine men convicted over the scandal in 2012, only Shabir Ahmed, 64, who was caged for 22 years, and Mohammed Sajid, 40, who was jailed for 12 years, remain behind bars.
Mohammed Amin, 50; Abdul Qayyum, 49; and Hamid Safi, 27, were all jailed for five years or less and have now completed their sentences.
Adil Khan, 47; Abdul Rauf, 48; Abdul Aziz, 46; and Kabeer Hassan, 30, are all believed to have been released on licence after going beyond the half-way point of their sentences.

Bonus comment from that article above:

Greater Manchester Police and the Crown Prosecution Service came under fire for how they handled reported claims of rape and abuse and have since apologised.

Manchester, huh?

Pardon?

From Jack Posobiec’s Twitter feed, a report from The Indpendent that “Theresa May says the internet must now be regulated following London Bridge terror attack”.

Update (20170605): The Zman weighs in on Theresa May, whom he terms the Barren Cat Lady (heh):

Barren Cat Lady wants everyone to know that the people responsible for importing millions of hyper-violent savages into Britain are on top of things. That’s something you never hear addressed in public by the pols of any party or the so-called news reporters allegedly charged with grilling them. No one ever asks, “why did you import these strangers into our lands?” It’s treated as if it just magically happened like a freak storm or earth quake.

[snip]

After she promise to crack down on the Internet, as if it is a thing with agency of its own, she makes noises about properly worshiping the gods of the new religion. She provides an example by informing us that the Muslims doing this are not practicing real Islam. That despite what all the Imams say and their holy books instruct, the real Islam is this wonderful thing that is going to be great for Britain. Even though the corpses are piling up, what’s important is that you don’t notice that all the perpetrators are Muslims.

Why I Have No Interest

in series like House of Cards or Breaking Bad addressed neatly and succinctly in a Tweet:

be honest, who do you cheer for in House of Cards? Underwoods or Conway bc he is a Republican?

Red Pill – House of Cards is a psyop to make people accept and adore corrupt politicians

Breaking bad, dexter, etc all of these villain bad guys are written like this to tear down our morality.

Clarke’s Three Laws

I know there was one (the third) but was informed of the two others as well: Clarke’s Three Laws.

Clarke’s first law: When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
Clarke’s second law: The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
Clarke’s third law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Tell Me the Media Is Not Our Enemy

I think I need to save this. From Kurt Schlichter’s Twitter feed:

Read the last line + tell me the media is not our enemy: Comeys FBI Broke Rules Spying On Americans HT @instapundit
James Rosen: Comey’s FBI Broke Its Own Rules & Procedures On Spying On Americans

The (the quote from the) article itself is not all that long:

Pelosi confessed ignorance of this week’s disclosure that the National Security Agency for at least five years under the Obama administration systematically violated Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights…

Civil liberties groups said the disclosures should factor into lawmakers’ decision at year’s end about whether to reauthorize the NSA collection program that witnessed the abuses…

The sheer scale of the 4th Amendment violations is staggering, as was the sternness of the rebuke of the Obama administration by the FISA court, which ordinarily approves 99.9% of the government’s request.

As of a few minutes ago [20170528], this story had not been covered by the Washington Post, the New York Times or any of the three broadcast networks.

Cowards

From a post at Uriasposten, a copy’n'paste from an opinion piece in Jyllands Posten (original Danish below the fold):

Another of our elected officials, in this case, the oh-so nice guy from Aarhus, Nicolai Wammen, stated on the morning after the Manchester butchery that is was “an awful and cowardly attack”.

With these words – so often heard from those mouths paid by the state – demonstrated the Social Democrat minister candidate the very core of the European political conscience, that is quite unable to understand the political consequences in meeting an actual enemy. Because no, dear Nicolai Wammen, it is not our enemies who are cowards. Our enemies know quite well why they fight – and they are willing to go to extremes to impose their evil will. They are willing to lose their own lives to butcher our children.

Cowards, however, are people who observe the approach of a blood-thirsty enemy, but are not willing to fight by the necessary means. It is the present European leaders who are the cowards – and the prediction is clear: one day the belief in miracles will burst and the European people will begin to call on leaders of a different type.

Liberals Are Shocked

to find we’re starting to hate them right back. Mr Schlichter goes on a nice tear, in which he explains that

Liberals have chosen to coarsen our culture. Their validation and encouragement of raw hate, their flouting of laws (Hi leakers! Hi Hillary!) and their utter refusal to accept democratic outcomes they disapprove of have consequences. What is itself so surprising is how liberals and their media rentboyz are so surprised to find that we normals are beginning to feel about them the way they feel about us – and that we’re starting to act on it. If you hate us, guess what?

We’re going to start hating you right back.

I also rather liked this line:

Team Fredocon [snip] moan about the threat of “Whataboutism”, the tendency for people to explain their sub-optimal behavior by asking, “What about so-and-so? He did the same thing and you didn’t care.” But while “whataboutism” may be a logical fallacy, it’s still a devastatingly compelling argument.

Sean Spicier

From a parody account on Twitter that is supposedly the spokesman for Trump, a few nice sarcastic quips.

link:ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Manchester attack, which means finding a motive could take years

link: Makes sense that General Flynn would invoke his 5th Amendment privilege, it is a Democrat’s go to move

link: Going to be weird watching a President give a speech on foreign soil and not hear ‘We Americans are lazy, self absorbed a-holes’

link: Could be Hillary in Saudi Arabia right now, picking up Clinton Foundation donations in person. But no, couldn’t find time for Wisconsin

Sheesh, these were over only a couple, three days and I trimmed the bulk out.

It’s also worthwhile to go there just to see number of clueless people who don’t get it’s a parody account.

Terror attacks ‘part and parcel’ of living in a major city

Says Sadiq Khan: London mayor, [snip] capitals ‘have got to be prepared’ for attacks like New York bombing.

That’s just the way it is. Get used to it: 2017 Has Seen A Terror Attack Attempted In Europe Every Nine Days.

Update (20170524): From the Twitter feed of Jack Posobiec:

BBC Host: Europe has to “Get Used to” Terrorism

Update (20170604): After another attack yesterday, someone tweeted in response to a NY Times headline, that “London was stunned Saturday by attacks that killed 7 people in the center of the capital”:

Why were they stunned? Their own Mayor told them this was the new normal.
