Trumped Out?

Trumped Out? After nearly four years of ceaseless attacks by Democrats and the press, the strange thing is not that Trump can be occasionally wearisome, but that he is even still breathing. By Victor Davis Hanson
Exhausted by Trump? Well, not so much. More like super tired of the unending flood of stupid BS about him and everyone not "progressive", and the moronic flow of news, comments, etc, that just undermine the society and try to put everyone against everyone else. Yeah, sometimes I really wish The Donald would dial back on his tweets, etc, but compared to the tidal wave of stupid crap from the Left, he is by far the lesser aggravation. The good news is that a lot of people are also more tired of the leftist garbage than Trump, and that'll show up in Nov next year. --Del

In the Land of No Consequence, Bad Behavior Festers

In the Land of No Consequence, Bad Behavior Festers
Excerpt: The timing of the Times’ latest fraud is notable for its coincidence: Three years ago and one year ago this month, Democrats, with full complicity from the media, unleashed two of the most divisive and fabricated campaigns against Trump World: The Trump-Russia collusion hoax and the Kavanaugh rape charges. In September 2016, Yahoo News posted its infamous article authored by Michael Isikoff that suggested Trump campaign aide Carter Page was a Kremlin tool—the piece was sourced by dossier author Christopher Steele and cited as evidence in the FISA warrant against Page—publicly fueling the nascent Russian collusion storyline. And in September 2018, the Washington Post identified Christine Blasey Ford as the woman accusing Kavanaugh of decades-old sexual assault. But despite the widespread misconduct, malfeasance, and irreversible political, professional, and personal damage connected to both travesties, not one person—lawmaker, staffer, reporter, or witness—has been held accountable for their actions. (...) To the contrary, mouthpieces for both scandals are cashing in by selling books that rewrite history, or worse, fabricate more charges intended to inflict additional harm. [Wow. The author, Julie Kelly, is clearly ripped–I don’t think I’m allowed to say “pissed”–with the lack of accountability for all the shenanigans that have been thrown out to the public since the 2016 election campaign began. I have to admit I agree with her. Until some of these characters get some comeuppance, there will be no changes of attitude or tactics by the media. It’s difficult enough trying to pit fact against fact; it’s nearly impossible to win with fact against repeated myths. Ron P.]

George Packer Gets Mugged by Reality

George Packer Gets Mugged by Reality
Excerpt: Few journalists are as respected by, and respectable to, liberals as The Atlantic’s George Packer. The author of The Assassin’s Gate (2005), The Unwinding (2013), and a recently published biography of Richard Holbrooke, Our Man, Packer has written for bastions of liberal thought from the New York Times Magazine to The New Yorker in a distinguished, decades-long career. His latest piece for The Atlantic, “When the Culture War Comes for the Kids,” is essential reading. Why? Because it relates, in Packer’s haunted and sympathetic style, the experience of having a child enrolled in a New York City school system corrupted by politics. For anyone who believes in individualism, the freedoms of speech and conscience, and the equal dignity of human beings, the experience sounds like a nightmare.

Police: Georgia homeowner shoots, kills 3 teens wearing masks as they attempted to rob him

Police: Georgia homeowner shoots, kills 3 teens wearing masks as they attempted to rob him
Notice there is no mention of race in this report. Why is that? Because everyone involved, attackers and the defender were all of the same race, which happened to be Black. Now there's a lot of wailing about the sad, tragic, unnecessary deaths of three very young men. Sorry about that, they came at a man in his home in the night wearing masks and carrying weapons, which they started using. They picked on the wrong house, the wrong guy, who was armed and apparently skilled with it, and he blew them all away. There should be zero recriminations for the man, and the relatives of the boys should be asking themselves how the families failed them, and allowed them to turn into armed, masked robbers at so early an age. --Del PS- I wonder if the homeowner had an "assault rifle"

US has most mass shootings? BS!

For years now, it has been a "known fact" that the USA has more mass shootings than any other country in the world, and that it's all related to gun ownership.  One study by a single professor has been the basis of all this.  But it turns out that things aren't quite what they seem.... again.  (Not that we've ever seen such before!) First thing- in all real science, the person who publishes the final study has an absolute obligation to provide their data and procedures that led to their conclusions to any other scientist who asks for them.  And maybe to a lot of others too, even if they aren't scientists.  But this one guy has refused steadfastly to release any data at all, any methods at all.  This automatically invalidates his report and makes it no more reliable than any piece of fiction.  But the media and the politicians of course still love it. Watch and pass on to those who might be interested. --Del

ABC moderator stuns Democratic debate crowd by confronting Kamala Harris

ABC moderator stuns Democratic debate crowd by confronting Kamala Harris on her record as California's top prosecutor after she changes positions on marijuana and police shootings, and demands to know 'why you didn't try to effect change then?'
Excerpt: Linsey Davis confronted the 2020 presidential hopeful about her record while Harris served as California's top prosecutor and asked: 'Why didn't you try to effect change then?' Remarking on Harris' criminal justice reform, Davis said there were 'contradictions' on some of her positions. 'You said that you’ve changed on these and other things because you were, quote, "swimming against the current and thankfully, the currents have changed," Davis said, before adding that she didn't try when she 'had the power.' (The Davises were the only black family in our neighborhood. All our streets are named after states, except Saluga Trail, the name of which was changed when the Salugas' son bought it in Nam in '67. The Davises used to live across the street from the monument they put up to his memory. Peter)

Why Last Night’s Debate Was Both Comically Bad and Painfully Annoying.

Why Last Night’s Debate Was Both Comically Bad and Painfully Annoying. By JIM GERAGHTY
Excerpt: Last night is when the Democratic presidential primary debates shifted from mildly entertaining showcases of comically overambitious narcissists with little to no self-awareness — “I’m ready to be commander-in-chief on day one because in the House, I’ve introduced a bill that would —” to a genuinely annoying group exercise in ritualized belief that bumper-sticker slogans can fix the world, that most of the country’s problems go away once Donald Trump is no longer president, and that anecdotes prove it.

We Need Our Mojo Back Vis-à-Vis China
EXCERPT: The world will become a Chinese company store: Chinese banks will lend the money, Huawei will build the broadband network and sell the handsets, Alibaba and JD.Com will market the products, Ant Financial will make micro-loans, and Chinese companies will build airports and railroads and ports. As an investment banker for a Hong Kong boutique from 2013 to 2016, I saw this first hand, and reported it here. Among other things, Huawei is building most of Mexico’s new national broadband network, including 5G capability, in a consortium with Nokia financed by a group led by Morgan Stanley and the International Finance Corporation. Huawei also dominates telecommunications infrastructure in Brazil and other Latin American countries. China’s tech dominance in America’s neighborhood, remarkably, has occasioned no official comment from Washington. (The form of a coming Chinese empire...if we can't stop, or at least limit it. Bill)

Julian Castro promises that if he is elected, he will create 10 million new jobs in the “clean energy economy.” Pete Buttigieg promises that he will cut the number of incarcerated Americans in half without any increase in crime. Andrew Yang says that if he is elected, all citizens over age 18 will get $1,000 per month from the government, forever. And Joe Biden, the supposed sensible centrist in the Democratic primary, promises that if elected, he will cure cancer.

Scientists uncover new evidence of the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs

Scientists uncover new evidence of the asteroid that killed off the dinosaurs
Excerpt: Drilling into the seafloor off Mexico, scientists have extracted a unique geologic record of the single worst day in the history of life on Earth, when a city-sized asteroid smashed into the planet 65 million years ago, wiping out the dinosaurs and three-quarters of all other life. Their analysis of these new rock samples from the Chicxulub crater, made public Monday, reveals a parfait of debris deposited in layers almost minute-by-minute at the heart of the impact during the first day of a global catastrophe. It records traces of the explosive melting, massive earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides and wildfires as the immense asteroid blasted a hole 100 miles wide and 12 miles deep, the scientists said. [Unfortunately, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences publication of the study isn’t easily available to me. All of this stuff is relatively “new” knowledge. As recently as the early 1970s, no one really had a good idea why the dinosaurs all died out at about the same time. Even after Alvarez, Asaro, and Michel found an iridium-rich layer nearly worldwide, it took another 30 years before most agreed a comet-like body impacted the Earth. A very fine speculative fiction novel about this called “Lucifer’s Hammer” by Niven and Pournelle in 1977 (Hugo Award nominee, 1978) gives a pretty good idea what the physical after effects of even a small such strike would be like.

High School Assignment Forces Kids to Disclose Sexual Orientation, Reveals Massive Political Agenda

High School Assignment Forces Kids to Disclose Sexual Orientation, Reveals Massive Political Agenda
This teacher pushed the kids through a detailed program of exposing themselves and everyone they know in deeply personal matters, and says after all, it's OK, since she "used to be a Catholic but is now a bisexual atheist". First, it is so far beyond the pale to force kids into anything even remotely like this that it truly boggles the mind, and second, she has no right to tell the kids about her personal life details as a way to convince them that what she's asking them to divulge of their own personal lives is OK. And she'd done it before! My major question is, why is she still in a classroom? The principal and the Board of Ed should be coming down on her like a blown down skyscraper. This is one more example of the growing insanity among otherwise intelligent people, that they can get so wrapped up in their own personal agendas that they feel it's their right (maybe their duty?) to push it on everyone else. But for an authority figure like a teacher to push it on kids is so far out of bounds that there are no words for it. --Del

The Press

Only the Press Could Get Away With This
Excerpt: Let’s say you are a salesman for a major company and while attending an industry conference, you begin screaming, cursing and threatening one of the hosts—in public. Or, let’s say you are a manager for a major company and you make up a story about how a competitor secured a bank loan and you spread that baseless rumor throughout the industry. Or, let’s say you are a secretary for a major company and you scour the social media page of a rival in the secretarial pool, edited one of her dated posts to make it sound much worse than it actually was, and email-blasted it to the entire company in an effort to get her fired. Or, let’s say you are the chairman of the board of a major company and you direct your underlings to lie to customers and shareholders for three years about something that never happened. See where this is going? In any other professional sector outside of the news media, those kinds of activities would amount to fireable offenses. No constitutional protections would apply; no activist groups would rally to your defense; no C-Suite executive would issue a statement in support of your bad behavior; no colleagues would plead your case; no judge would demand that your job be reinstated. You would be standing in the unemployment line. Justifiably. [Unfortunately, this conduct goes a long way back, at least to Sam Donaldson in the early 1970s, and perhaps farther, but I don’t recall seeing it. It is even more unfortunate that a court has chosen to invent a “right” for a reporter to be given access to a private meeting in a residence, even if that residence is merely the home of the President of the United States. As I see it, a reporter may well have a right to “cover the news,” but that means to write or report on it; he DOESN’T have a right to demand access to anyone who doesn’t want to see him. Not even the smallest town’s dog catcher is REQUIRED to allow himself/herself to be interviewed, absent any local laws to the contrary. The current White House seems to have temporarily solved the grand-standing problem of reporters by discontinuing most of the previously regular briefings. I would go farther. First, I would send most regular and breaking “news” directly to the media’s main office. That cuts the reporter out of the loop entirely and gets the info to their HQ faster. No doubt this will also save the media company money since they no longer need to pay big bucks to the grand-standing on-air reporter. Second, for more in-depth occasions, I would grant interviews with one or two named reporters known to be both fair and respectful, or at least polite. That might even work with a small group of known reporters who would be invited by name, not by their media organization. There would no longer be a need for special areas for “the press,” and especially not set-aside areas for “major media.” Third, since the Press Officer would now be the only contact for the press, the job would be far more concentrated on getting the wording of releases exactly the way we wanted them the first time Fourth, there needs to be a WRITTEN code of conduct and decorum for the correspondents or reporters allowed on-site, enforceable by their written agreement to abide by it on pain of being excluded in the future if they transgress. That ought to prevent many of the problems. Of course, it won’t do anything about what opposing politicians say to change the emphasis or meaning of written statements, and they’ll still lie about what the whole thing means. That’s just democracy at work.  Ron P.]

A Sigh of Relief over the Death of a Brutal Left-Wing Dictator

A Sigh of Relief over the Death of a Brutal Left-Wing Dictator
Excerpt: Robert Mugabe was — ah, what a delight it is to use the past tense — one of those demonic despots whose name and crimes ought to be commonly known. Yet somehow, he never quite caught the imagination of the Western press, even if he caught its attention. The average person walking down the street knows about the Kims in North Korea, Saddam Hussein, and Ayatollah Khamenei; but you had to be interested in foreign affairs to recognize the name Mugabe as a monster who deserved to be lined up alongside them in hell. Some might argue Mugabe’s relative obscurity reflects a Western press that is uncomfortable with acknowledging the fact that a leftist anti-Colonialist revolutionary leader can turn out to be a bloodthirsty and brutal despot; some might argue his relative obscurity reflects a Western press that simply isn’t all that interested in Africa. (I think it's that the left lobbied to bring black rule to Zimbabwe, and when it turned out to be disastrous for blacks, averted their eyes. I have read that black life expectancy fell from 63 to 37 under Mugabe, but he was black, so all good. ~Bob)

he U.S. can slash health-care costs 75% with 2 fundamental changes

The U.S. can slash health-care costs 75% with 2 fundamental changes — and without ‘Medicare for All’ Fund the HSA deductible, as Indiana and Whole Foods do, and put real prices on everything. BySEAN MASAKI FLYNN: Sept 2, 2019
Excerpt: As the Democratic presidential candidates argue about “Medicare for All” versus a “public option,” two simple policy changes could slash U.S. health-care costs by 75% while increasing access and improving the quality of care. These policies have been proven to work by ingenious companies like Whole Foods and innovative governments like the state of Indiana and Singapore. If they were rolled out nationally, the United States would save $2.4 trillion per year across individuals, businesses, and the government. (It is always true that anything that you receive for free means either there are strings attached or that the costs you don't pay are borne by everyone and then no one really knows what the costs are. I don't know if this is the panacea the article implies, but I have heard that Singapore is indeed a model in this respect and that Mitch Daniels has been correct on most budgetary questions in his pubic career.

Former Political Prisoner Chen Guangcheng: Trump Has the Right Idea on China

Former Political Prisoner Chen Guangcheng: Trump Has the Right Idea on China
It's never been complicated. The communists leading China are corrupt and power hungry, and have zero scruples about anything. To help advance a huge nation with huge problems and technologic disadvantages they embarked on massive industrial espionage and theft of intellectual property as soon as Nixon's plane took off, kept the yuan artificially low, and got their hands in every bit of Western technology they could by any and all means to improve their own situation. They've been at economic war with us for all these years, with our leaders either too stupid or too unwilling to notice it. It's paid off handsomely for them, they've made great progress that they never could have otherwise, and now in their arrogance and drive for power, they are pushing to take over domination of all of Asia and bring heavy influence to bear even further. Telling them the free ride is over has been overdue since Clinton was in the White House, and finally Trump is doing it. I'm not sure this is the best, most effective way to go at it, but it's better than just letting things roll on. Let's hope in the end the pressure gets to high that they decide in Beijing that maybe it's time to accept the new normal and back off on some of their crap. But I'll be they will stall and stall, hoping Trump loses in 2020, and some spineless idiot will take over and kowtow to them again. --Del
