Truth Will Out: Proof There Is a God

truth will out

It turns out both Donald Trump and Judge Napolitano were correct, GCHQ – as well as others – were spying on the Trump team, as outlined in The Guardian. But before discussing that let’s reflect for a moment on the fact that despite having to run against the Democrats, half the Republicans and the Media, Trump also had to run against the FBI, NSA, GCHQ,  Germany, Estonia, Poland, Australia, and possibly the Dutch and the French spy agencies. He was certainly right about being “wiretapped” - not only was he being spied on, he was being spied on BIGLY!

find out we were right

As John Hinderaker pointed out the most amazing thing is that he won anyway:

So just about every Western intelligence service was collaborating with the Obama administration in trying to elect Hillary Clinton. Yet, amazingly enough, they failed.

The blindingly obvious point that the Guardian tries to obscure is that the combined assets of all of these agencies failed to find any evidence of collaboration between the Trump campaign and Russia. We know this, because the Democrats have pulled out all the stops. Both before the election, and especially after the election, they have leaked furiously to try to discredit President Trump. If there were any evidence of collusion between Trump (or even obscure, minor “advisers” like Carter Page) and Russia, there would have been nothing else in the Washington Post or the New York Times for the past five months. But they have nothing.

What was really going on seems clear. Everyone involved in this story thought that Hillary Clinton was sure to win the election. Why? Because they read the Washington Post and the New York Times. Plus Real Clear Politics and 538. The suggestion that the Russian government tried to swing the election to Donald Trump is ridiculous. The Russians thought that Hillary was the certain winner, and if–a big if–they carried out a primitive phishing expedition into Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s email account, and subsequently sent the DNC emails to Wikileaks, it was to cause trouble for Clinton after she became president.

Likewise, British intelligence and the other agencies mentioned by the Guardian thought there was no doubt but that Hillary would win. How could they curry favor with the new administration, expected to be Obama’s third term? By feeding negative information about the opponent who was sure to lose, even though there was no real significance to the intelligence provided.

That’s what happened. The fact that liberals still try to push the “Russia” story, even when it is obvious that they are out of ammo, is pathetic. – Powerline

Ironically this attack came from the President who lectured the world about Russia:

“This is a vision of the world in which might makes right–a world in which one nation’s borders can be redrawn by another, and civilized people are not allowed to recover the remains of their loved ones because of the truth that might be revealed…America stands for something different," said Obama. "We believe that right makes might–that bigger nations should not be able to bully smaller ones; that people should be able to choose their own future." Washington Free Beacon

Fortunately we once again have a President who knows that right does make right, not the other way around no matter how much you like the sound of your own rhetoric.

quote-lets-have-faith-that-right-makes-might-and-in-that-faith-let-us-to-the-end-dare-to-do-our-duty-abraham-lincoln-112678

And by the way Mr. Obama, I don’t think a leader should let his country’s borders be redrawn by ignoring existing Federal Laws restricting immigration either. As you said, “The people should be able to choose their own future,” which they did last November, no thanks to you and your “might makes right” brigade of spies. The outcome of that election – against all odds – is proof enough that there is a God.

Seriously, Some Times It’s You

calvin not responsibleI recall once having lunch with a female colleague who was complaining vociferously for the millionth time about not advancing fast enough in the corporation. Her boss was a misogynist, he was always giving the best projects to the men in her department – who only had engineering degrees while she held both an engineering degree and a law degree – both from the University of Michigan! Bunch of chauvinist pigs (that term was still popular in the early 80’s).

As I mentioned, this was about the millionth lunch hour I’d spent listening to her whine about how much more educated, smarter and capable she was than all her co-workers, and how her superior intelligence and skills were overlooked simply because she was a woman. She had embraced the sisterhood of the traveling victims society long before it was so lucrative. Apparently mistaking me for a member of her sisterhood she seethed on and on about all the unfair exclusionary behavior her boss and male colleagues practiced, including never inviting her to join them for lunch. This was not a problem I encountered in my own department; not to boast, but I was a pretty popular lunch companion and in fact had passed up an invite to our Friday staff lunch in order to honor my prior commitment to Ms. Wendy of the Unwavering Whine.

calvin on self-awareness

So perhaps her complaint about never being invited to join the boys reminded me that I was missing the beer, pizza, jokes and good natured camaraderie that comprised Friday lunches back in the day. Whatever the reason, her complaint drew a rather direct (and, I acknowledge, probably insensitive) response: I heard myself saying to her  “maybe it’s nothing as pernicious as misogyny, maybe they just don’t like you.”  I can still see the stunned look on her face; she was a beautiful woman and quite smart but totally tone deaf to anyone other than herself. As a result she was quite lacking in the social graces.  I suspect nobody had ever spoken to her so bluntly in her entire life.

Anyway, I hadn’t thought of that long ago lunch for over 30 years but this story reminded me of it: 

Bill and Hillary Clinton made no secret of the fact they blame campaign staffers for her defeat in the presidential election, according to a new book about her failed bid.

“She was visibly, unflinchingly pissed off at us as a group,” an unnamed staffer said in the book, according to an excerpt obtained by The Hill. “And she let us know she felt that way.”

The book reveals the former secretary of state was full of excuses for why she faired poorly against Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary and President Donald Trump in the general election. Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes co-authored the book, titled “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.”

Reportedly furious after a dismal showing in the primaries, Clinton manufactured multiple reasons for her performance. She blamed her former campaign director Robby Mook for not selecting the right travel stops and for spending heavily in the wrong areas….

A blessed Good Friday to all believers:

I’ll be on the road the next few days, so play nice in the sandbox and don’t leave any “treats” behind for the dogs. Oh, and congrats on the arrival of new BooKitty, Boo! Just in time for Easter.

“Chick-fil-A” – That Sounds Rather Misogynist

The past 7 days have been rather eventful:

  • Susan Rice was unmasked as the unmasker in the Obama administration’s surveillance of the Trump team
  • The U.S. initiated a bombing run on Syria in retaliation for their use of chemical weapons
  • Evidence that the Obama administration was spying on the Trump team emerged
  • Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as a Justice of the Supreme Court
  • North Korea has been rattling their sabers again, threatening to start WWIII, leading Trump to lean on  Chinese President Xi to control the little Nuclear Gnat.

And yet what are students at Pittsburgh’s Duquesne University living in fear of?  Chick-fil-A.

chick lineup bullshit

Not because their chickens aren’t certified organic and 100% hormone free but because the corporation supported traditional marriage – a position that the LGBTetc community finds abominable. You are still free to hold whatever opinion you want on college campuses - as long as you concur with the prevailing campus doxies, or keep it to yourself.

Here’s my unsolicited advice to parents: if your child is going to college to become a social justice warrior don’t bother. There are much cheaper ways to have their brain programmed.

And That’s The Way It Is.

The parameters of politically incorrect language keep expanding: now simply accusing somebody of being worse than Hitler is WORSE THAN HITLER!

Of course that only applies to Republican spokesmen (microaggression!) for the Republican (trigger warning!) President, Donald J. Trump. In normal situations using sarin gas on your own people would be the major transgression, but in the post-Obama world of Ted Baxter news reporting it’s the reporting on the use of sarin gas that comes under attack.

I don’t know about you but I couldn’t help but think “Ted Baxter”  when I hear the gravitas with which Scott Pelley pronounced the following:

“The job of the White House press secretary is to articulate the positions of the president clearly. In a colossal error, Sean Spicer was comparing Syria's dictator to Adolf Hitler and suggested Hitler did not use poison gas on his own people.”

Somewhere in the back of my mind all I could hear was this conversation between Ted, Lou and Murray:

Lou Grant: Put it on an idiot card for Ted.

Ted Baxter: Cue cards, Lou. I don't know why everyone insists on calling cue cards idiot cards.

Murray Slaughter: We just have trouble thinking of you as a cue.

As Truth Revolt reported: CBS's Scott Pelley Sees Himself as Reporter in Tradition of Murrow, Cronkite. And he thinks that's a good thing.

Shoot, who wouldn’t think that’s a good thing?

In other anchor news, I hear O’Reilly’s going on vacation. Some say permanently. My recommendation: buy yourself a new pipe while on vacation.

Then people will talk about your gravitas instead of your peccadilloes.

An Inconvenient Truth About the First Peoples

Did you see this? Scientists say an ancient settlement discovered in Western Canada predates the pyramids.

Triquet-IslandTriquet Island on B.C.’s Central Coast

An ancient village believed to be one of the oldest human settlements ever found in North America has been discovered during an excavation on a remote island in British Columbia. 

The village, which is estimated to be 14,000 years old, has been found on a rocky spit on Triquet Island, about 500 kilometres northwest of Victoria, Canada. 

It is estimated the village is older than Egypt’s pyramids. 

And according the CBC the find supports the oral history of the Heiltsuk Nation:

“Heiltsuk oral history talks of a strip of land in that area where the excavation took place. It was a place that never froze during the ice age and it was a place where our ancestors flocked to for survival,” said William Housty, a member of Heiltsuk Nation.

B.C. archaeologists have excavated a settlement in the area — in traditional Heiltsuk Nation territory — and dated it to 14,000 years ago, during the last ice age where glaciers covered much of North America.

Wait a minute, last “Ice Age”  you say?

conjoined-ice-sheetsThe conjoined ice sheets from the Rockies (the Cordillera ice sheet) and eastern Canada (the Laurentide ice sheet) blocked Alaska. ( University of Maryland )

Apparently the ice sheets formed during a previous Ice Age are a fundamental aspect of explaining how Amrericas “First Peoples” came to be First Peoples:

One theory of how humans entered the Americas is they came from Asia over an Alaskan land bridge through an ice-free corridor east of the Rockies and made their way through what is now eastern and central Canada.

But if that’s true it means  {{HORRORS!}} there must have been global warming before Al Gore arrived on scene to warn us about his Inconvenient Truth!?! I’m dazed and confused but somehow I suspect the Russians are behind the whole thing.

Get Up Stand Up: Stand Up For Your Rights

berkeley protestCampus protest in the 60’s has somehow morphed into “Shut It Down!” chants

This is deeply disturbing: yet another campus incident of censorship,

A throng of angry protesters converged at Claremont McKenna College on Thursday and effectively shut down a pro-police speech as they surrounded the building, forcing the speaker to give the talk via livestream to a near-empty room as they yelled “F*ck the police” and “Black Lives Matter” and banged on windows. – The College Fix

This time the target was Heather MacDonald a Manhattan Institute scholar and author of the 2016 book The War on Cops. Some of the protestors were students, the rest a crowd of who-knows-who summoned by Facebook:

Protesters organized the protest on Facebook earlier in the week, calling it “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascist Heather Mac Donald” and suggesting she pushes “fascist ideologies and blatant anti-Blackness and white supremacy. … Together, we can hold CMC accountable and prevent Mac Donald from spewing her racist, anti-Black, capitalist, imperialist, fascist agenda.”

The shut down was a profound violation of one of our basic American rights: freedom of expression. Apparently all it takes these days to be denied this right on college campuses is to be accused of being a racist, misogynist, homophobe, Islamophobe, or “fascist”  - which I doubt most of the protestors can even spell let alone correctly define.

In her article about the incident, Get Up, Stand Up,  MacDonald asks:

Where are the faculty? American college students are increasingly resorting to brute force, and sometimes criminal violence, to shut down ideas they don’t like. Yet when such travesties occur, the faculty are, with few exceptions, missing in action, though they have themselves been given the extraordinary privilege of tenure to protect their own liberty of thought and speech. It is time for them to take their heads out of the sand.

Accusing them of having their heads in the sand is a kindness. Who do you think are teaching this little robots about the meanness and danger of conservative thought? Heather continues:

The Rose Institute for State and Local Government at Claremont McKenna had invited me to meet with students to talk about my book, The War on Cops, on April 6. Several calls went out on Facebook to “shut down” this “notorious white supremacist fascist Heather Mac Donald.” A Facebook post from “we, students of color at the Claremont Colleges” announced grandiosely that “as a community, we CANNOT and WILL NOT allow fascism to have a platform. We stand against all forms of oppression and we refuse to have Mac Donald speak.” A Facebook event titled “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascist Heather Mac Donald” and hosted by “Shut Down Anti-Black Fascists” encouraged students to protest the event because Mac Donald “condemns [the] Black Lives Matter movement,” “supports racist police officers,” and “supports increasing fascist ‘law and order.’” (My supposed fascism consists in trying to give voice to the thousands of law-abiding minority residents of high-crime areas who support the police and are desperate for more law-enforcement protection.)

Ironic, is it not, that this type of campus protest against freedom of expression is actually an all out assault on the very liberal principles they portend to champion? I think here would be a good place to insert this little tale about free speech that FrancinePink posted the other day:

protests and umbrellas up your ass

Like a Necktie For Your Butt

In case you live in a cave and are unaware: butts are the new boobs. Every young woman wants big ones in the 21st century. Some want them bad enough to have augmentations.

Butt-Injections.png

There’s just no explaining some people’s taste and delusions.

On an objective basis (i.e. da Vinci’s golden ratio) disproportionately large butts are not attractive.

golden ratio da vinci - Copy

But(t) like so many issues, many of them far more important that the size of boobs and butts, pop culture has dictated what people accept as objective reality. Hence young women have been brainwashed into believing they need to haul around a big booty in order to be desirable and sexy. As described (rather grotesquely) in The Fake Butt Phenomenon some women would go to any extreme to add a caboose to their rear end. 

Apparently the cult of the big butt migrated north from South America some years ago and for some reason gets a waiver from the otherwise politically correct warriors opposed to all other forms of cultural appropriation, including Taco Night. Having been totally embraced by Hollywood and other so-called celebrities –

buttsBooty butts of Kardashian, BeyoncĂ© and Lopez 

the totally fake, big butted booteratti have become entrenched as the 21st century’s ideal of beauty. Otherwise how else do you explain this list? Top 30 World’s Most Beautiful Women? (h/t Blonde Gator) – which includes Michelle Obama at #21,

big_butt_thumb[2]

and Hillary Clinton at #6 (I will spare you). “Journalists” don’t even care about credibility anymore.

But(t) for politics, political correctness and nepotism the list would have been the Top 5 World’s Most Beautiful Women, butt that’s another story, for another day.
