===== BIG TECH FASCISM =====
Facebook violates Candace Owens’ civil rights, prompts call for DOJ investigation of racial discrimination
“In error”.  Uh huh.  An intelligent, articulate black CONSERVATIVE woman just happens to get shut down while terror supporters, ANTIFA, etc., go on their merry way?  Suuuuure.  Related:


Big Tech companies have spent the last three years ruthlessly censoring conservatives and center-right commentators on social media. Not a week goes by without another tale of a conservative being banned and deplatformed from literally everything because of their political beliefs.
And the Left-Media complex goes insane:
To Fight 'Extremism,' Journalists Are Praising Online Censorship
Why, it’s almost as though – underneath it all – they were wanna-be totalitarians screaming to get out:

Intellectuals are more totalitarian in outlook than the common people.  Most of them are perfectly ready for dictatorial methods, secret police, systematic falsification of history, etc., so long as they feel that it is on 'our side.'
-- George Orwell
It’s because they are THE ANOINTED – as Thomas Sowell excellently points out:

Does President Trump Know EVERY Pro-Trump Publisher from 2016 Has Been Decimated or Eliminated by Facebook — Including His Own Account?
Control the information flow and you control what people believe (Rule 2).

Facebook Doubles Down on Blocking Trump Advisory Board Member Over Pro-Life Post

===== ISRAEL / MIDDLE EAST =====
Fickle Fannys Down Under
Gay groups boycott Eurovision in Israel… while in ANY of its neighbors they’d be killed for being gay.  I want to recall a short paragraph from what I still think is one of my best essays, Civilizational Collapse and the Brain (link in original):

I know several gay people and two transgender people, and they’re all for more Muslim immigration.  I read articles like this and think “Do gay (and transgender) people not understand that under Sharia law the best possible outcome they could hope for is a quick death?”

The Warmonger Canard
I wish the people of Persia no ill-will.  My beef is with the Mullahs.  And to those who say it’s none of our business… understand that in Shia Islam, their version of the Messiah, the Twelfth Imam, cannot come until there is a global war.  In other words, death and destruction – globally – are not a bug but a feature and a herald of the coming Islamic “paradise on Earth”.  We could leave Iran alone, hands off - everything - and because their religion fuels their leaders' desire for war, they'd start a war sooner or later.  If it has to come, and I pray it doesn't - come on #freepersia - let it be on OUR terms and in OUR time.

Rapid DNA-Testing Reveals Third Of Migrants Lying About Family Relationship To Children

 "We’ve broken up child recycling rings — if you can believe it — in the last couple of months, which is where smugglers pick up a child, they give it to adults to present themselves as a family once they get over — because, as you know, we can only hold families for 20 days — they send the child back and bring the child back with another family. Another fake family," Nielsen told Fox News's Tucker Carlson.

===== TRUMP / 2020 ELECTION =====

(HT Gorges)

[Top Reasons To Vote Trump in 2020: According to an Asian Immigrant / 5:02]
The cult of AOC personality cheering form on function (also it’s antisemitic)
What scares the pants off me is that this woman, and others on the far Left, are being built up into cults of personalities.  The marriage of that plus an entitled belief in their superior nobility and the goodness of their goals – and coupled with a lack of religious morality and HUMILITY – do not forecast good things.

===== PRO-LIFE =====

(Both HT Gorges)

Women need to choose... to exercise restraint of the animal, and choose to keep their legs shut.

A Reasonable Definition of 'Pro-Choice'
Agreed.  But some other stuff in here turns my stomach, e.g., some Gosnell horrors, and more; quote (bolding added, links and italics in original):

Two professors published, in the Journal of Medical Ethics, a paper titled "After-Birth Abortion: Why Should the Baby Live?"  It was a shocker, defending and advocating infanticide but calling it after-birth abortion.
The professors declared, "Therefore we claim that killing a newborn could be ethically permissible in all the circumstances where abortion would be.  Such circumstances include cases where the newborn has the potential to have an (at least) acceptable life, but the well-being of the family is at risk."
Their vacuous arguments get worse by the paragraph.  They say, "Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life."  The professors argue that personhood doesn't begin until sometime after birth, so there must be some magic going through the birth canal.
The professors defend their position by saying, "[I]n order for a harm to occur, it is necessary that someone is in the condition of experiencing that harm.  If a potential person, like a fetus and a newborn, does not become an actual person, like you and us, then there is neither an actual nor a future person who can be harmed, which means that there is no harm at all[.] ... In these cases, since non-persons have no moral rights to life, there are no reasons for banning after-birth abortions." 
Now that infanticide is on the table, not just abortion, because they’re “not people”… it will move to children under a certain age that are deemed to be “not people”.  Like those of us standing in the way of the great Socialist Utopia.

How can you weigh an issue and make informed decisions if you don’t have information from different perspectives?  Rules One and Two apply:

1. It doesn’t matter what’s true, it’s what you can get people to believe.

2. If you control the information flow, you control what people believe.

Women facing unexpected pregnancies will still feel the panic that comes with a positive pregnancy test, and we cannot abandon them. Abortion advocates say women will go back to trying to self-abort, and that would be a tragedy.
Those of us who are pro-life and who have fought for or supported these abortion restrictions have to be willing to step up. We have to support pregnancy resource centers with our donations, our time, and our expertise.
Critical!  Unplanned pregnancies happen.  Until we can argue cogently about the moral case for carrying to term, and help those unable to care for infants to do so - or facilitate adoptions - we will be out-shrilled by people screaming CHOOOOIICE!  And we must make the moral argument that engaging in sex, let alone unprotected sex, is also a choice.

British parents gender transition son and foster son, 7 and 3, to female – High Court judge praises them as “good, attuned and careful”
Foster child and biological child.  So it can’t be genetic.  It’s CULTURE, from the parents.  (At my kids’ school one of the teachers has a boy who “identifies” as a girl… gag me.)  Related:

Wonder what happened in those years…

How about they storm the airport, and the migrants get to occupy a shark feeding frenzy?

The simple truth is that the political class has decided to replace the population.  The incumbent population, being marginalized and gaslighted politically, as well as culturally, and excoriated as racists and monsters for opposing this, is pushed towards violence, to wit JFK’s notable quote:
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
Quote (bolding, italics, and links in original; underlining added):
In Madrid, an elderly couple returning home from vacation discovered that their apartment had been "occupied" by African migrants. When a camera crew from the Madrid television channel Telecinco went to investigate, the migrants destroyed the camera. The couple is presently living with family members while Spain's notoriously lethargic justice system now rules on who is the apartment's rightful owner.
The number one duty of a government is to protect its citizens.  If a government fails to do that, there is no question at all why anti-migrant hate is rising.  And it will continue to rise until something sparks the conflagration – which will not stay localized.  IMHO there is a staggering amount of anger under the surface… when it blows, it’ll blow BIG.


The Left – Islam alliance is astonishing: Islam, examined neutrally, is everything the Left should hate: ultra-religious, oppressive, anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-freedom… but they’re united in hate against Western Civilization.  If only someone would write a book about this.  Wait, here:

Seven hairy hells.  And understand this: The American Left looooooves this woman.  More on her sister-in-jihad, Ilhan Omar:
Ilhan Omar retweets anti-Semitic Imam Omar Suleiman
Now, imagine if anyone to the Right of Stalin retweeted a person who said things like this.

She and her fellow immigrants vote “D” – that’s all that matters to them.

Lefties Sure Do Love Political Violence
Quote (bolding added):

Now, this sort of stuff is relatively mild. It's quite a step back from James T. Hodgkinson trying to kill Republicans, and almost succeeding with Steve Scalise, because they won an election and Hodgkinson didn't like it. But normalizing this sort of rhetoric is dangerous, no matter what you think about Trump or Farage or anybody else. "This behavior is justified because I really hate these guys" has never led to anything good.
It's milkshakes now.  They’ll graduate to acid attacks – and soon. IMHO, if Farange and Tommy do well.  And updated: right on cue.  Damn, I hate being right all the time.

OMG squared.  What kind of sick SOB does this?  Someone who lives in a shame culture – this is a timeless but must-read piece:

Mann and Lewandowsky’s Climate Lament: “We Have Lost Australia For Now”
Give them credit, they’re persistent.  But note the alarmist panic: “Threat to our species”.  If not, as others have said, the entire biosphere – i.e., all life on earth.  Now, know your enemy: imagine if you truly believed that mankind’s emissions of CO2 were a dire threat to the entirety of life on earth – what would you not do to stop it?

“ISRAEL HAS NO RIGHT TO EXIST” say self-hating Jews from the so-called ‘Jewish Voice for Peace’ & ‘If Not Now’
And read the comments by Muslims in the US.  And you seriously want more of them here???

Quote (links in original):
Talk about strange bedfellows. From using a revolving door to release Jihadists from detainment to secretly sending Israel's staunchest enemies cash-stuffed chartered planes in the middle of the night, insisting Israel return to indefensible borders, inviting a known anti-Israel imam to pray over the U.S. House of Representatives and members being sworn in on the Qur'an, today's Democratic Party is making clear which side of the Allah versus Yahweh war they support. At the same time that Trump is propping Israel up and showering her with love, the Dems seem bent on hastening its downfall. Yet, American Jews insist on voting alongside Muslims and in favor of a party that's increasingly anti-Israel, pro-Palestine, and full of Jihadist sympathizers.

American Jews face a simple, binary choice:

Romney Explains Why He Voted to Block Trump's National Emergency During Border 'Crisis'

Look, on one hand I can respect his citing the Constitution; the problem is the Left will hang us with that even as they treat it as toilet paper.  Fighting with one hand tied behind our back, in a no-holds-bar-brawl, is not an option.  Honorable combat is reserved for opponents who have honor; the Left has no honor, nor ethics, nor morality, nor patriotism.

===== SOCIALISM =====
Venezuela's socialist regime triggers a collapse worse than any nation not at war -NYT

Quote (bolding added):

This sets one to thinking.  How much of Mayor Pete's homosexuality is due to his father Joseph spreading his postmodern ideology at home as opposed to blaming it on the mythical "homosexual gene"?  In any case, by gaining national recognition by having thrown his hat into the Democrat presidential primary, Mayor Pete is advancing the cause of cultural Marxism.  By being in a homosexual union, which he calls a marriage, the high visibility thus accruing to Buttigieg and his so-called husband can only further desensitize the country to the type of arrangements such as theirs.  The image of a homosexual first "family" in the future is the logical extension from Buttigieg's campaign.  In this regard, Buttigieg is a symbol and role model who will adversely affect many.  And this is how the Marxists advance their agenda — incrementally, one step at a time.
