Two thoughts.

First, about the GOP members that voted against Trump’s National Emergencies.  In the case of “purist” Libertarians, like Rand Paul, I can at least admire the desire to stand by the Constitution as they interpret it.  From what I understand Trump absolutely has this authority, but a principled stand can be understood.  However… we face an enemy who is not honorable, or decent, or ethical.  As Bill Whittle has observed multiple times, you act with honor against someone who acts with honor against you.  When you are in a bar brawl for your life, there are no Marquess of Queensbury Rules; you smash a beer bottle and gut-stab the SOB.  This is the situation we’re in, and too many GOP members are still more inclined to lose with honor than fight to win.  As Ann Coulter and others have pointed out, immigration is THE ISSUE.

As to the just-happened shooting in New Zealand at a mosque.  I regret the loss of life; it’s a horror.  I’m also surprised it hasn’t happened before.  The Islamists attack and attack and attack and attack and attack and nothing really happens back.  All we know is that the guy who did it is an Australian citizen; let’s see what develops.  And given that any believing Muslim would be willing to kill another Muslim knowing that said Muslim, dying as a part of a jihad effort, would go to paradise as a shahid, this would be a bold stroke to – once again – gain sympathy from the kaffir.  I am not saying that is the case.  I’m saying I do consider it possible.
Voxday thinks it's a setup.  I'm willing to wait for that ruling, but... the timing IS suspicious: juuuuust as nationalist parties are starting to gain ground, this happens?

** A must-watch.

** DO NOT dismiss the hypnotic power of youthful enthusiasm and promises of “everything free”.  If this guy allies with AOC or Beto as VP... 1) bad, and 2) he'd better watch his own back!

** Quote:

The only solution to the immigration crisis is to close the borders and deport illegal immigrants back to wherever they came from.

>> And make sure they know not to try again.  Sharks and land scavengers have to eat too.  Related:
Australian police warn citizens not to enter a Muslim ‘no go zones’ to keep them away from potential attackers

** I again ask: What could have a hold so strong over a country’s leaders that they knowingly – even with the above, and other, effects seen – continue to hold the gates open and don’t work to protect their citizens?

=====

** They view themselves as the Anointed.  And since they, personally, are immune from the consequences, they don’t care as long as they feel good and get praise from their social circles for being “so enlightened”.

=====

** Gallows.  Now.

** I wouldn’t believe the enemedia if they said the sky was blue on a clear sunny day.  They’re nothing but the propaganda arm of the Democrats.

=====

** Quote (link in the original):

However, in recent times, NASA has succumbed to pressure from climate doomsday proponents.  NASA's original page on the sun's impact on our climate system is now hidden from the public domain.

>> Now… WHY would they hide that?  Is there evidence and research to say it’s no longer valid?  If so, let’s see it.  The fact that it got disappeared is veeeeery suspicious.

** And in Massachusetts, the state of my birth, comes this:

** Basically, the schools push this crap on kids who don’t have the mentality or strength to fight it, and who – simply because of growing up – are confused… and now they want to label it CHILD ABUSE if you, the parent, say NO to hormone therapy, surgery, etc.  IMHO the hangings need to start.  Stat.

=====

** Echoes many of my thoughts; I really liked Scott Walker but he folded early.  Then, Ted Cruz.  I came to Trump reluctantly and while there are some things I’d have done differently, I admire one thing over everything wrong he’s done/doing: at least HE FIGHTS.  More:

** Quote:

Each time they are unleashed, damage is done. But no price is extracted for that damage. Conservatives never return the favor of dragging old quotes or actions into the light, they almost uniformly refuse to call for boycotts. They prefer to “take the high road.” What good is the high road if it leads to defeat? Moral victories are just a polite way to justify losing.
Liberals collect scalps, conservatives collect moral victories. This isn’t a battle for local dog catcher, it’s a fight for the future of the country; it’s time for the right to fight back the way they’re being attacked. Mutually assured destruction is the only way to stop these fascists in their tracks.

>> One fights honorably against an honorable foe.  The Left is not honorable.  They are an alien entity infesting (and growing in) the body of America.  And when they finally burst out, it will be very, very bad for America even if, ultimately, we defeat them.

Occasionally, environmentalists spill the beans and reveal their true agenda. Barry Commoner said, "Capitalism is the earth's number one enemy." Amherst College professor Leo Marx said, "On ecological grounds, the case for world government is beyond argument."

Greenpeace co-founder: Most scientists who say there’s a ‘climate crisis’ are on ‘government grants’
** Posit for a moment that in the near future, it is revealed that the entirety of man’s contribution to (cue dramatic music) CLIMATE CHANGE is, in fact, virtually nil – that natural factors are at work that dwarf anything mankind can do.  What happens? 

·         Topical research grants cease; entire academic fiefdoms wither
·         The lucrative lecture circuit stops cold
·         The Warmists get sued until their noses bleed; Al Gore and others are sued for their livers and kidneys for fraud, and possibly are imprisoned
·         The whole “green energy” subsidy thing goes POOF
·         The laundering of taxpayer money through green companies into the Democrat coffers ceases
·         The research-green business-campaign coffer-feathered nest taxpayer milking machine gets shut down
·         Yet another nail in the coffin of the enemedia that promoted this crap
·         All the virtue signaler have egg on their faces; ostrich strength
·         Hopes for a one-world green government cease

No wonder the Warmists fight disclosure of their data, methods, etc., tooth and nail.  The gravy trail, let alone the road to Socialism, might get derailed.

SOLVED: The Mystery of AOC’s Rise to Power
** Quote:

So much for being a strong, independent leader of the left. She’s nothing more than a Barbie on a string.

>> I’m a little late to the game in posting this, but I didn’t want to put it up until I’d seen the video.  The video quotes one of the puppeteers as a missionary to “save the soul of America”.  What have I been saying?  The Left is composed of MISSIONARIES bent on creating what they think is possible: A Socialist utopia where war, poverty, hunger, crime, etc., are all eliminated.  They actually believe they can do this.  Related:

Wearing hijab VOLUNTARILY in a free society means one thing “I support Sharia”. Judge Jeanine was 100% correct in her connecting the hijab with Sharia. But under our current political environment criticizing the hijab has become taboo.

– Nonie Darwish

** Darwish is a Muslim who moved to America and converted to Christianity.  She’s in an excellent position to know about the hijab.

Side note: I’ve read her book Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel, and the War on Terror; very insightful – a Muslim who converted to Christianity.  She has three other books out too which I’ll have to try to get to in my copious free time.  (If G-d is going to take me home when I’ve finished my “to be read” list, excellent; I’m immortal!)




Another article about the hijab:
Ten Truths About Hijab

** I’ve said that my wife is Kazakh and (nominally) a Sunni Muslim.  A few years ago, apparently under some pressure living in a small village, her sister said she was considering starting to wear a hijab.  My wife went nuclear – fusion-level nuclear.  She was screaming into the phone and, afterwards, translated her screaming as “We’re Kazakhs, we don’t wear that Arab sh*t!”

=====

** I hate to be the wet blanket, but IMHO it’s still on the table.  I have ZERO doubt the Left has every available investigator around the country, heck, around the world (!) trying to find dirt on GOP Senators.  If they keep the House in 2020, and Trump is re-elected, they’ll pull the trigger if they can compromise enough Senators to get a lock on conviction.  In their eyes Trump (specifically) and anyone to the Right of Stalin (generally) are cancers.  You know happens to cancer: chemotherapy.  Related:
Don't Take My Constitutional Republic Away from Me

[The Collapse of Western Civilization / 12:56]


** Which brings to mind this quote:

Great civilizations can survive a lot of things, but not impoverishment of spirit.

-- Mark Steyn

I recall a video of Victor Davis Hansen talking about the Byzantines and their resistance to Islam.  They held out for centuries.  It was, IIRC, only when their faith in their own civilization collapsed, resulting in a collapsing birthrate and unwillingness to fight any more, that Islam made inroads.  Related:
Hungarian Government: “Europeans have a right to know about EU’s secret plan to make the UN Migration Compact mandatory”
** Western Civilization has lost faith in itself.  And even as we soar to new heights we take the entirety of what came before for granted, and collectively have come to believe it could never collapse.
=====

** The Left has adopted the First Commandment: “I am the State, thy State… thou shalt have no other gods before Me.”

=====

** Think of this as matching the whole “climate change” thing.  If mankind’s emissions of CO2 are a bad thing, then one way of reducing them is to wipe out western civilization and kill millions through an engineered plague.  For example, Ebola is – from the few pieces I see about it – still simmering nicely in Africa: imagine if someone brought some infected people over to, say, New York and told them to just walk around all day touching everything they could.  Wouldn’t be hard to motivate them: just tell them you want their help in getting back at “the colonialists who ruined Africa”…

** The fact that he’s a LIVING Jew is enough for these animals.

** Let’s be very clear: there are people who do react badly to vaccines.  This is not even in question.  But as Dr. Thomas Sowell said, life is about trade-offs.  Measles, polio, mumps, whooping cough, tetanus, etc., are all out there still.  Many are lethal.

(HT Voxday)
** Immigrants arriving in Santo Matteo in Italy.  It CAN be done.  The question is whether there is the WILL to do it.  This is the first step: stopping the inflow – sink the ships, bomb the departure ports.  The next step is deportations en masse.  Voluntarily at first.  Then… well, Mao did mention the barrel of a gun.  More:

** Quote (link in original):

The Free Beacon put the question to most of the current poll leaders and, somewhat amazingly, not a single one wanted to go on record about it.

>> Of course not.  They intend to do it ASAP.
