Borders?  Who Needs Borders?
Monday, May 09th, 2016 | Author:

In his version of Utopia, the small-minded socialist, known as John Kerry, was telling recent college graduates to prepare for a borderless world.  Of course, today this hit the news:

Nearly half of voters in some of the European Union’s main member states want to have their own In/Out referendum just like Britain, a poll reveals.  Forty-five per cent of voters in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden said they want to be able to vote on whether or not to remain in the EU.

Hmm… do you suppose that not everybody wants to live in a global commune with 6 billion other people?

Do you suppose that Mr. Kerry has a borderless property around his Massachusetts estate?

Would we expect any differently from Kerry and his ilk that were the primary drivers for the “peace agreement” with Iran?

Equality in Men’s and Women’s Tennis?

Update

Another tournament director weighed in on the craziness of gender political correctness in tennis:

This is rather ironic considering the result tumult around women’s versus men’s tennis… evidently Andy Murray complained that he had to serve a women’s tennis ball that happened to roll onto his court during his match.  Even his comments are rather ironic:

The world No. 2 felt he was mistakenly given a women’s ball while serving on break point in the second set against Denis Istomin, leading to a brief but heated back and forth with chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani. “It’s unacceptable to have one of those balls,” a visibly upset Murray said after losing the point.

Oh, well.  The PC Police tell me that everything is fine…

Politically correct people can deny facts all they want, but reality typically follows the money-trail.  Here is a dose of reality for the critics of Ray Moore and Novak Djokovic… picked up by Sean Randall:

The Miami Open is selling tickets for the men’s and women’s final at DIFFERENT prices when the prize money for both events is equal.The cheapest Saturday WOMEN’S FINAL (which includes the men’s doubles final) ticket is listed at $69.The cheapest Sunday MEN’S FINAL (which includes the women’s doubles final) ticket is listed at $105.

The article ignores the additional important fact that in the major tennis tournaments (e.g., Wimbledon, US Open, etc.) the men play best of 5 sets whereas the women only play best of 3 sets.

Go figure…

With the election of a Moslem mayor for London, the world is changing… and not for the better.

This is an informative clip of a British politician, speaking in the United States about the horrifying danger that Islam presents to Britain.  With the lead of Obama and company, the American politicians are ignoring reality and attempting to imitate the European approach of transforming their country to “Eurabia.”

Tons of Discrimination, but no Anti-Semitism?
Tuesday, May 03rd, 2016 | Author:

This is the upside-down world that we live in that has been promulgated by the Manchurian Marxist Moslem:

Our exclusive emails show the shocking lack of interest Mizzou faculty showed in anti-Jewish racism – and the totally different way the college treated racism towards African-Americans.

Top Mizzou official: Jewish students’ complaint “an overreaction … but this is the world we live in” E-mails:

Mizzou officials didn’t want statements issued on anti-Semitic incidents

Had already spoken out college-wide on racism against African Americans

Parent: “when I will get a statement from you about the  horrific anti-Semitic graffiti found again on campus? ..it is not as important to you as ‘race’ issues..

“Diversity” Faculty prevented a public statement about racism against Jewish students – and seemed to say that anti-semitism was NOT racism

Mizzou “Diversity” Email: “I would delete ‘this time directed at our Jewish students.’ The swastika could be anti-Semitic or racist or both… say we didn’t issue a public statement”

Source: Did Mizzou Act Differently when Racism Was Targeted at Jews?

You can then follow that up with some reasonable commentary from Camille Paglia about the lack of perspective on world events:

On gender identity politics and transgender bathrooms, Paglia slammed all the “navel-gazing” as “a kind of madness of self-absorption” that doesn’t deserve the media attention it’s getting. She was particularly critical of those “pressur[ing]” others to make “dangerous” and irreversible changes to their bodies. A lot of those being influenced by the movement, she suggested, are simply using the issue as a “mask” for other deeper problems.

If you call a homosexual or a black man a dirty name, the federal police will come to arrest you.   But when a Jew is murdered, the Obama gang will tell you that it was an unfortunate event that must have been the victim’s fault.

Hillary to be Pardoned by Barack
Monday, May 02nd, 2016 | Author:

Well… Duh!   What did you think was going to happen?  If somehow the Hillary team pulls off a win, then the Barack team will provide a formal presidential pardon before January 2017:

An FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s conduct could extend well past the election, a former chairman of the House Oversight Committee said Sunday.

Internet Searches and Stereotypes
Friday, April 29th, 2016 | Author:

The primary internet search engines typically rely on recent user histories to pop-up the most frequently used searches from users across the world…  The images shown below illustrate the stereotypes of different races, religions, and ethnicities as reflected by Bing searches.  Just simply typing into the search “why are [group]…” automatically drops-down a list of most frequently used phrases.  The images below provide some interesting results:

Investment Advice
Tuesday, April 26th, 2016 | Author:

Here’s a good one from Joe K:

Just thought I’d pass along some advice that my financial advisor gave me today…

I called him this morning and asked him what I should be investing in as I feel interest rates are not going to be rising as they did during the late 70’s early 80’s. I told him I thought we ought to be looking to get out of bonds and finding a safe haven in which to invest. I asked him, “Should we move to precious metals, foreign currency, or what?”

He responded, “If Bernie or Hillary are elected, canned goods, liquor, and ammunition are probably your best bet.”

Dire Predictions About Climate
Friday, April 22nd, 2016 | Author:

The secularist left prays to Gaia with the “Earth Day” holiday…  It’s always interesting to look back at predictions about the demise of earth from nearly 50 years ago:

For the next 24 hours, the media will assault us with tales of imminent disaster that always accompany the annual Earth Day Doom & Gloom Extravaganza.

Ignore them. They’ll be wrong. We’re confident in saying that because they’ve always been wrong. And always will be.

Need proof? Here are some of the hilarious, spectacularly wrong predictions made on the occasion of Earth Day 1970.

Some great quotes from the usual suspects, including the mainstream media, leftist pundits, and a current Obama “science” adviser, predicting dire consequences by the 1980s:

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”

“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”

“Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”

The Leftist Authority Complex
Thursday, April 21st, 2016 | Author:

An interesting perspective about the Leftists in America:

Their fundamental conviction is that the conscience of the individual must be forced to yield to the demands of the collective, as decided by the authorities who presume to speak for it.

Try refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding, and tell me whether you will be forced to bow to authority. Try running a fast-food joint or comic-book shop that can’t afford to pay its employees $15 an hour, and tell me whether you will be forced to bow to authority. Try keep men dressed as women out of your ladies’ restroom, and tell me whether you will be forced to bow to authority…

There is no real rhyme or reason to the vast patchwork of regulation except: bow to authority.

Saudi Arabia’s Terrorism Connections
Sunday, April 17th, 2016 | Author:

When it comes to Moslem terrorism, the United States is engrossed in an informal policy of “ignoring the obvious”:

Washington’s bipartisan insistence that the Saudi regime is a vital counterterrorism ally of the United States is a delusional byproduct of its willful blindness to sharia supremacism — the ideological driver of violent jihadism and the oil-rich kingdom’s most consequential export.

The point of the post-9/11 investigations was to hold every culpable actor and negligent government agency accountable. No American citizen or government official, not even the sitting president, was spared. It is time for Washington to stop running interference for the Saudis while the Saudis run interference for the jihadists. At long last, let’s see the 28 pages.

And, of course, you have this happening now:

The U.S. has released nine more prisoners from its base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and sent them to Saudi Arabia for resettlement, officials said Saturday.
