From my Firearms Instructor:

“Newspapers don’t print the truth. They print what people say”

--Frank Galvin (played by Paul Newman) in the 1982 feature film, “The Verdict”



In our upside-down civilization, some crimes are considered so serious that innocence is no longer a valid defense!

Provable guilt has become all but irrelevant!

It is only necessary that a person be “accused” of one of these “designer crimes,” not by a credible witness, under pain of perjury during sworn testimony, but during offhand, unverifiable comments on social media!

Once so accused of “inappropriate contacts,” “sexual misconduct (which includes extemporaneous comments)” that allegedly took place thirty years ago, you’re toast!

Solemn denials, and credible professions of innocence are all in vain, even when no charges were ever filed, no arrests ever made, no investigation, no “case,” no complaints that ever saw the light of day. Even when both accusers and accusations lack credibility.

None of that matters!

You’re toast!

Proving guilt or innocence is, of course, impossible, but that never stops a predictable media orgy of personal destruction.

When such an unhappy fate befalls a Republican candidate running for public office, the liberal media is always at the head of a merciless lynch-mob!

His supposed “sins” are always so unforgivable.

But curiously, when a sitting president, like WJC, actually does sexually abuse young girls (in real time), first piously denying it, then sheepishly admitting it, all is instantly, magically forgiven by the same media! In fact, the media, far from expressing indignance and disgust, actually makes excuses and endlessly apologizes for him, while heaping blame on his victims!

Smug media elitists are lacking in character, honor, and decency.

But, they never lack agenda!

Leftists never do!

Oh Liberia, How I Miss Thee...

“It will probably be asked, Why not retain and incorporate the blacks into the State [instead of colonizing them]? Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the whites, ten thousand recollections by the blacks of the injuries they have sustained, new provocations, the real distinctions which nature has made, and many other circumstances will divide us into parties and produce convulsions which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race.”

–Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia Q.XIV, 1782. ME 2:192

Quotes of the Day

“That nation is surest to live in peace, that is most capable of making war; and a man with a sword always by his side, shall have least occasion to make use of it.”

The Fascist Left Becomes Trendy

I hear all the noise about Judge Moore of Alabama.

But all I can hear is the screeching Left Wing Media Matters' types destroying a viable, conservative, rightwing, likely winning candidate with the latest, effective, trending, "guilty until proven innocent" accusations.

Weinstein started it. Now, any man even remotely accused of sexual harassment is assumed as guilty as he obviously is.

This is a VERY bad precedent. Especially when these accusations are DECADES old. There is no way to prove they happened...and yet no way to establish one's innocence.

Every man in America is threatened by this insanity. Every man is vulnerable to these unsubstantiated, ancient "j'accuse" from any female or any group, or any political party, or any underhanded miscreant...and his entire, life-long honest reputation can be destroyed in a moment.

We cannot let this keep happening.

If this keeps Judge Moore from getting elected...I promise you, the Left will find women that EVERY SINGLE conservative politician has, quote "sexually molested"....unquote.

How long will it be until decent citizens, and even stupid, stupid, Republicans see that the Fascist Left will use ANY MEANS NECESSARY to destroy them, the nation, the Constitution, the moral order...to establish the tyranny they so desire to rule America?

Comment of the Week

"We live in an uncivilized society. Time for the return of similar severe punishments." - PeterH86
This in response to a story about cretins luring a young women into an alley with the sound of a crying baby...only to athrow what is described as "acid" in her face.
I believe in instances like this, we need to revert to the Old Testament law of "an eye for an eye"...and punish these villains by throwing acid in their faces, so they can wear their shame and their crime for the rest of their lives—just as their victims must. 
If one will not act like a civilized human being, perhaps one should not be treated like one, but rather as the barbarian he is.

Jones is the REAL Scandal in Alabama

If you're in Alabama, please vote for Judge Moore.

Trust me...

The OTHER guy is the truly SCANDALOUS one.

Here's why.

AN ILLEGAL POEM
By Illegal Immigrants

I cross river, poor and broke
Take bus, see employment folk.

Nice man treat me good in there,
Say I need "Go see Welfare."

Welfare say, "You come no more,
We send cash right to your door."

Welfare checks they make you wealthy,
Medicaid, it keep you healthy!

By and by, got plenty money,
Thanks to you, TAXPAYER dummy.

Write to friends in motherland,
Tell them '"come, fast as you can"

They come in buses and Chevy trucks,
I buy big house with welfare bucks.

They come here, we live together,
More welfare checks; it gets better!

Fourteen families, they moving in,
But neighbor's patience wearing thin.

Finally, white guy moves away,
I buy his house and then I say,

"Find more aliens for house to rent."
In my yard I put a tent.

Send for family, they just trash,
But they, too, draw welfare cash!

Everything is very good,
Soon we own whole neighborhood..

We have hobby it called breeding,
Welfare pay for baby feeding.

Kids need dentist? Wife need pills?
We get free! We got no bills!

TAXPAYER crazy! He pay all year,
To keep welfare running here.

We think America darn good place!
Too darn good for white man race.

If they no like us, they can go,
Got lots of room in Mexico.


* * *


Now, how stupid do you feel, Taxpayer?

That last line is actually pretty funny, if you think it through. If the White Man took over Mexico, it would become a peaceful, prosperous, mighty nation in the world....instead of the crime, corruption and poverty-ridden third world swamp it is today .

Let's picture it a moment. All the Anglos move to Mexico, and all the messicans move to the USA. Really, what would happen? Well, it's as obvious as the large nose on Don Fernando's face...the Former Mexico would become a First World Country in short order, and the USA would become....well.....Mexico.

And naturally, about that time, all immigration would promptly reverse, with all the "americans" climbing over each other to swim the Rio Grande SOUTH to get into the Former Mexico.

It is true that

"Where the White Man Goeth, Parasytes Follow".

358 Years Ago...

"November 10, 1659

Persian/Afghan Islamists have constantly attacked and ravaged India for over 1,000 years. Their Jihad continues to this day.

In the Fall of November 1659. Islamist Afzal Khan began by destroying the Hindu temple of Bhavani at Tuljapur. The Islamists forces moved on to the Hindu Vittal temple at Pandharpur.  The Islamists were trying entice the Hindu army out of the mountainous areas they occupied and onto the plains, where Khan's larger army trained and equipped for warfare on plain grounds would have an absolute advantage, However, the Hindus strategically stayed in mountainous for guerilla warfare. This conflict took place in western central India.

The Persian/Afghan Islamists moved their troops to the mountains. However, the Hindu armies routed the Islamists; captured over 30 Islamists forts and doubled their liberated territory

It was the policy of the Hindus to humanely treat the defeated army, neither the men nor women were sold as slaves or molested. Wounded commanders were offered treatment deserving of their rank and either imprisoned or sent back to Bijapur. This was radically different than the Islamic forces."

Brazenly Copied from American Thinker

Troy Has Fallen. Don't Let Helen Trick You.

If you want to get away with anything, you need only one skill: distraction.

Today, we Americans find ourselves sinking into swamp after swamp of institutional corruption, from Washington's Russia eruptions to Hollywood's frisky lust to academia's sheer madness.  A question repeats ad nauseam: How do they get away with this stuff? 

How did gropers and pederasts run amok in our nation's media for decades without being challenged?  How did a web of state operatives, lobbyists, agents, and propagandists fool so many people with disinformation for so long without being caught?

And at last, how did colleges that were conceived as lights of reason and character formation plummet into such unreason and depravity with nobody to stop them?

It isn't the wickedness that staggers the mind, since most people understand the existence and reality of evil.  It is the evasion of justice.  Especially in institutions such as entertainment, politics, and law, which are constantly under the public gaze, it strains credulity that nobody would have seen something going wrong.

Kristallnacht Was Not about Vandalism
When people see evil, they have a reaction and feel the urge to combat it.  So instead of trying to fight that urge in people, you just need to direct it somewhere other than at the real evil.  In other words, when you see people getting ready to take aim, throw up a decoy somewhere, anywhere, and buy time so you can devise a way to escape justice.

Recently, Sharyl Attkisson formally analyzed the uses of distraction in her book, The Smear.  Realistically speaking, The Smear should have been the big paradigm-shifting story of recent times, rather than the wave of coverage about rapists and sexual harassers in Hollywood.  Why?  Because the problem of Kristallnacht was not vandalism, and passing ever stricter laws against vandalism would not have solved the problem of Kristallnacht.

In the same way, the broader problem with Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey was not their sexual misconduct.  The problem is the larger network of spying, disinformation, character assassination, blacklisting, and intimidation, which men like Harvey Weinstein belonged to and used for their purposes.

Ronan Farrow's article on Weinstein's large "army of spies," published in the New Yorker, is as chilling as it is necessarily groundbreaking.  It shows that many in America, who blew the whistle on some problem and found themselves sabotaged in all parts of their lives, were not paranoid.  Maybe it was someone asking Barack Obama a basic political question only to see his embarrassing tax history laid bare in the press.  Maybe we are talking about children raised by gay couples who find that their dissent from the LGBT narrative brought them social ruin.  Their fears were probably right.  People were hacking into their emails; poisoning them with whisper campaigns; turning employers against them; and destroying their reputation through elaborate, planned online campaigns.

Sexual predation, like vandalism, is a timeless problem that rarely gets solved through regulation and punishment.  On the other hand, like the police state of Nazi Germany, the larger disinformation apparatus chronicled by Attkisson's Smear is a timely problem, something specific, urgent, and crucial for a free society's capacity to remain free.  And unlike sexual harassment and vandalism, the structure exposed by The Smear can be overturned if people steer clear of distraction.

Helen of Troy: The Original Mistress of Spin
It is often useful to resort to classical examples of a phenomenon so that we can examine our subject without the biases that come with proximity.  Hence, let's consider Euripides's Trojan Women.  It is the day after Troy's sacking.  All the Trojan men are dead.  Female survivors in Troy are huddled, terrified, subject to the cruel whims of the Greek men who invaded and destroyed their city.

Menelaus states at first that he will bring Helen back to Greece, "and then hand her over to the vengeance of those whose friends have died at Ilium; they will kill her."  But upon hearing this, Hecuba, the queen of the vanquished city, pleads with him to place her on public trial now and kill her quickly, thereby denying her a chance to plot some kind of contrivance against justice.  Hecuba adds: "You don't want to kill her without a hearing. 

But allow me to handle the prosecution's case against her. You do not know the evils she did in Troy" (195).  For Hecuba, this must not turn into a general lecture about chastity or a predictable squabble between the sexes.  It has to be about what Helen of Troy did and whom she explicitly harmed through her evil actions.

Unlike Trojan women dressed in tatters and smeared in grime, Helen emerges gorgeously arrayed, with her hair coiffed and her gown clean (she is famous for her skill at weaving garments).

Before Menelaus can interrogate her, she chastises him, saying, "Your servants lay rude hands on me and hustle me out of these tents" (194-5).  Then Helen tells a series of elaborate narratives, all of which direct the blame at others or simply buy her time.  She cites witnesses who cannot be contacted because they are dead.

Helen of Troy blames Hecuba for giving birth to Paris, the prince who took her away from Sparta in the first place (195).  In fact, she mentions that Hecuba was warned by an oracle to kill him in infancy, so Helen deflects her problems to Hecuba, who appears disobedient to the gods.

Then Helen slips in the charge against Menelaus that when Paris was visiting Sparta, Menelaus foolishly sailed away on business and left her alone and defenseless with a foreign prince: "you, my unworthy husband, left him in your halls and sailed off to Crete on a Spartan ship" (196).

Helen directs blame at the gods, recounting a suspicious tale of a three-way contest among Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera, over who was the most beautiful.  Paris was randomly selected as the judge of this contest and was offered three bribes: had he picked Hera, Paris would receive a united Eurasia to rule over; had he picked Athena, Paris would receive "leadership of a Phrygian army that would overthrow Greece."  Both Hera's and Athena's offers would have led to Sparta, Menelaus's hometown, being overrun by foreign armies with the aid of implacable goddesses.  Only Aphrodite's offer was relatively benign: she "told of [Helen's] marvelous beauty and promised it to him" if only Paris would state that Aphrodite was fairer than the other two (195).

The audience knows from preceding scenes that the gods are furious with the Greeks over their conduct during Troy's last battle.  Poseidon states in the opening monologue, "The sacred groves are abandoned.  The shrines of the gods run with human blood" (175).  His niece Athena agrees with this bleak assessment of the Greeks' behavior, saying, "Have you not heard of the insult to me and my temples?" and "The [Greeks] must learn in future to stand in proper awe of my shrines and to respect the other gods" (177).  With the gods refusing to appear to men, Helen has the chance to concoct wildly implausible stories without being contradicted by them.

It is hard enough to prove something that happened; how do you disprove something that did not happen?  This is the grand art of distraction, fitting for the emotional landscape of a Greek tragedy.  Helen, being a Spartan in her emotional resilience and an Athenian in her gift of rhetoric, tells Menelaus: "See what a boon my nuptials [to Paris] conferred on Greece; she was not conquered by the barbarians, you had neither to meet them in battle nor submit to their empire" (195).

Helen and Paris appear to be on the side of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and pleasure (#lovewins), while everybody else was just obsessed with war, bloodlust, and vainglory.  If everyone had just submitted to the ineffable will of the gods, then there would have been no Trojan War!  Everyone is wrong but Helen, who is in fact a victim dressed up in a gorgeous outfit with her bags packed, ready to bust out of this dump.  She says, "I was bought and sold for my beauty, and now I am reproached for what ought to have earned me a crown of honor for my head" (195).

Hecuba tries to refute Helen but looks old, haggard, bitter, and possibly mad, while Helen is a good Greek woman, completely in control of her emotions.  Naturally, as we know from Homer and others, Helen is never killed, but her female accusers all end up being sold away as slaves, raped, killed, and scattered to the four winds.

Distraction works.

So who is our Helen of Troy now?
Regardless of the eternal brutality of mankind and the incurable sinfulness of each man's heart, Helen of Troy was married to the king of Sparta and left him to marry someone else.  The war was about her.  The Trojan women who called for justice knew Helen as the heartless female who sat beside them during ten years of siege, now leaving them all to penury and trauma to protect herself.  One might say that perhaps punishing her would be profitless, since nobody on that fateful morning could reverse the destruction of Troy or give those women their lives back.

Yet by allowing her to escape justice, human civilization learned a deeply self-destructive lesson.  You can get away with anything, including murder, if you are gorgeous and people lack the attention span to figure out what you did.  The aggregate of millions of people justifying themselves in these ways is a society of people wreaking destruction all around and relying, eternally, on plausible deniability.  You get America 2017: a place where people finally witness the shocking immorality that has poisoned our government, Hollywood, academia, and publishing.  Suddenly, it becomes undeniable that accountability matters, that a j'accuse against vague societal forces is often far less curative than a good old-fashioned whooping in the town square to show arrogant bullies they can't treat people like dirt.

The current American esprit that abounds in exposés and rude awakenings could go either way.  Perhaps Americans will realize that Kristallnacht was not a crisis of rampant vandalism, but rather the sign of a totalitarian doomsday machine taking over their country; likewise, Les Affaires Hollywood are not a crisis of sexual harassment, but rather the sign of a totalitarian doomsday machine taking over our country.  Maybe Americans will rise up, lead a peaceful revolution through all the institutions – Washington, academia, Hollywood, the media, and the like – ripping out all the festering corruption and demanding a new system held accountable to basic standards of human dignity.  With the help of David Pickup, for instance, I organized a conference with just such hopes of pushing back against LGBT education in high schools.

Or America could fall for any number of Helen of Troy moves.  Americans might get caught up in the sexual details of these crises and neglect problems of privacy and corruption in favor of fueling puritanical outrage over maiden victims of eighteenth-century rakes and libertines.  They might get hysterical over crazy "snowflakes" on campus stopping Ben Shapiro from giving a speech and forget that a massive system of debt, extortion, nepotism, and fraud has turned the scholarly class of America into a legion of snickering Democrat toadies.

We know from Euripides what the likely tactics of distraction will be.  We have no excuse.  It's time to blow the lid off all of the corruption and make America great again, for real.

Liberals Strike Again

Apparently some liberals are calling for the banning of cars in cities.

(This is NOT a parody!)

Presumably in response to the car terrorist attack in NY recently.

Here's the link to a funny take on it.

And here's my favorite comment to the story:


"So the Democrats want to ban everything except muslims. Great plan."
