According to the recently discovered papers of the late Robert Byrd (Klu Klux Klan)  it is a waste of time to even attempt to teach black students math, NPR.   Byrd argues rather than educating blacks or other inferior minorities, we should simply dumb down their education, and then give them a diploma based on attendance.   Hey, it worked for Obama.

It is a smart man who know the limits of his own knowledge.   It is a fool who claims to know what is not knowable.   Bill Nye, the mechanical engineer turn entertainer, is the latter, from Daily Caller:

Comedian Bill Nye “The Science Guy” said Wednesday that the climate change movement can only move forward once the older generation begins to die off.

“Climate change deniers, by way of example, are older. It’s generational,” Nye told the Los Angeles Times in an interview. Nye added that he shouldn’t be too hard on older citizens, however, because he is “now one of them.”

“We’re just going to have to wait for those people to ‘age out,’ as they say,” Nye said, adding that “age out” is a euphemism for dying. “But it’ll happen, I guarantee you — that’ll happen.”

All the blabber mouths who claim to see the perils of climate, and seek to save World that neither wants nor needs to be saved,all afraid of open debate.   Real meteorologists have real trouble predicting the weather tomorrow.   Yet this mechanical engineer claims to be able to predict the climate in decades to come, proclaims it dangerous and professes to be able to change it.    You could say that denying Nye’s bunk makes me a skeptic, true.   However, I would say it makes me a realist.

Oh by the way Daily Caller, where are the trigger warnings?   The mechanical engineering guy said that I need to die.   What to stop the self-proclaimed social justice warriors from attacking senior living centers?

The darkest day in the history of American politics, if you are Phil Donahue.

Not this, Chief Justice, Supreme Court of the United State, Roger B. Taney. from Black Perspectives:

“They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.”

Not this, Harry Blackmun et al, recognizes that prenatal life exists, sees no duty to protect such life, then invents a mother’s so-called right to have her unborn child killed, millions of whom has since been consigned to such a death, from Legal Information Institute.

Not this, Lyndon B. Johnson stages Gulf of Tonkin Incident to allow his pursuit of war he neither is willing to fight  to win, nor willing to quit.

Rather this, from Hill:

Former talk-show host Phil Donahue on Saturday reflected on President Trump’s administration, calling it “the darkest political moment in American history.”

“This is the darkest political moment in American history,” Donahue said on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” Saturday. “Who’s going to argue that?”

Little Donny trump talked about having sex with willing women. B.J. Clinton had sex with unwilling women, and in turn B.J.’s wife attacked his accusers.  Mr. Donahue, buy a clue.

How dumb does one have to be to work as so-called journalist for McClatchy?   Dumb enough to shallow, hook, like and sinker, a concocted democrat talking point, from Alex Roarty, McClatchy

Top officials in the Democratic National Committee are worried about a sudden drop in voter registrations in Colorado, concerned that President Donald Trump’s new election commission is encouraging Democrats across the country to remove themselves from the electoral grid for fear of revealing personal information to the GOP leadership.

Ok maybe, and hopefully the ‘rats’ fraudulent voters are fleeing their sinking ship  The problem with attempting to blame an apparent surge in de-registration  on fear of revealing personal information is that Colorado voter registration does not have any such sensitive information, see Colorado Voter Registration Form(PDF)    It is fear motivating Colorado voters to de-register and it not fear of revealing personal information, of what are these former registered voters actually afraid?   Do bother to ask McClatchy

Do you suppose that media still considers Crystal Mangum a survivor of sexual assault?  Do you see the problem, from the Kyler Sumter, Useless Toady

Where does President Trump’s secretary of education stand on campus rape?

That question was in the air as U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos spent Thursday in meetings about Title IX — specifically as it applies to sexual assault on campus.

DeVos met with three different groups separately: advocacy groups and survivors of sexual assault, men’s rights groups and students falsely accused of sexual assault, and university administrators and Title IX coordinators.

The Toady asks the question where does President Trump stand.   The paper answers the question of where the Toady stands, and the smell is not good there.

One, buy a clue for fifty dollars. Rape and Sexual Assault are not now, or ever have been synonyms. While rape is a form of sexual assault, not all sexual assaults are rape. It is a lie to write a about a campus “rape problem” and the use claims about sexual assault as if it were some sort of proof.

Two, referring all people who complain to have been sexual assaulted as survivors treats an allegation as if it were an established fact. False accusations do happen. It is not helpful to condemn all accused as if they were guilty, i.e. the entire Duke lacrosse team.

From NPR:

A federal judge[U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith] in Michigan granted temporary reprieve from deportation on Thursday to more than 100 Iraqi nationals with criminal convictions who were living in the Detroit area. They had argued they could face persecution or torture in Iraq because of their status as religious minorities, The Associated Press reports.

[…]

The Justice Department had argued that immigration court is where the Iraqi nationals should make their case — not U.S. District Court. But U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith halted the deportations for 14 days while he decides if his court has jurisdiction.

If Goldsmith is willing to ignore the law as written, I say just chuck the law altogether and deport Goldsmith. Congress has the power to decide a court’s jurisdiction and Congress has decided that this is not Goldsmith case to decide. Depend on an Obama appointee to ignore any law for which he personally does not support.

This is not about foreign nations not getting their day in court. It is about under our Constitution, in which court do they appear.

In a move almost as shocking as the discovery of gambling in  Rick’s, and almost as  devastating as that of the late Arlen Specter (February 12, 1930 – October 14, 2012) Jumping Joe Scarborough will not longer feign being a republican, from Useless Toady:

MSNBC host, and former Republican member of Congress, Joe Scarborough announced he is leaving the GOP during a taping of Tuesday’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

“I’m not going to be a Republican anymore,” Scarborough said. “I’ve got to become an independent.”

The conservative pundit said the Republican Party “betrayed their core values” before Donald Trump won the 2016 election. Scarborough cited the paucity of Republicans who condemned Trump for racism during the campaign.

Joe don’t the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Google search on, “new york state governors who became president.”

Four men have become President of the United States after serving as Governor of New York: Martin Van Buren, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, and six were Vice President of the United States. (Van Buren and Theodore Roosevelt held both offices.)

The last New York governor to obtain national office was Nelson Rockefeller, who was appointed, not elected.   The last New York governor elected President was Thomas Dewey Franklin Roosevelt.

There was a reason.  in the days of yore, New York was the most populous state and a middle of the road state.  Alas no more.   New York is an extreme blue state with nary a republican in state wide office.   The governor who even pretended to be a republican was\ George Pataki.   The last republican in state wide office was Al D’Amato

As Pataki and Mario Cuomo discovered, the last presidential train from New York left in the 1040’s .   Yet the national party of the the left can dream.   Politico has floated current New York governor, Andrew J. Cuomo, a/k/a Little Andy for President.   I say to Little Andy run.   For when and if Little Andy were to run for President, he was be run over by the bus called Mainstream America, or Fly Over Country.   Little Andy out of touch with real Americans with American values, from Washington Times:

“It’s more about extreme Republicans versus moderate Republicans,” he said in a radio interview Friday, National Review Online reported. “You’re seeing that play out in New York. … The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act — it was voted for by moderate Republicans who run the Senate.

“Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Hat tip and reax, Fuzzy Slippers, Legal Insurrection:

The progressive left’s problems with Cuomo are rooted in his not being progressive enough. On the right, however, the feeling is that he is far too progressive to appeal to middle America.

Cuomo not only publicly announced that “conservatives are not welcome” in New York, but he also signed the anti-Second Amendment SAFE Act that even New Yorkers blatantly rejected and ignore.

If upstate New York is a harbinger for things to come, then the resulting pushback on Cuomo’s SAFE Act is resounding.

Little Andy has already written all the opposition ads needed to abort his presidential run.

James Comey, fired head of the FBI appears to be either ignorant of or apathetic to the laws he was sworn to uphold, from Hill:

More than half of the memos former FBI chief James Comey wrote as personal recollections of his conversations with President Trump about the Russia investigation have been determined to contain classified information,

[…]

This revelation raises the possibility that Comey broke his own agency’s rules and ignored the same security protocol that he publicly criticized Hillary Clinton

[…]

Comey testified last month he considered the memos to be personal documents and that he shared at least one of them with a Columbia University lawyer friend. He asked that lawyer to leak information from one memo to the news media in hopes of increasing pressure to get a special prosecutor named in the Russia case after Comey was fired as FBI director.

[…]

FBI policy forbids any agent from releasing classified information or any information from ongoing investigations or sensitive operations without prior written permission, and mandates that all records created during official duties are considered to be government property.

Mr. Comey argued that Mrs. Clinton was not guilty of mishandling classified information because she had no criminal intent. That is to say Mrs. Clinton was, and is, too stupid to understand her actions were felonious. Maybe Mr. Comey will argue that his false testimony to Congress that his records of his work conversations with the President were his personal property was also not a crime, because He too was too stupid to understand the very law he was sworn to uphold and defend.

From Conservative Tree House:

In an article identifying the originating source of the wrestling gif tweeted last week by President Donald Trump, CNN says they’ll keep his name private so long as the person remains compliant to the media thought police.

The direct threat is: “CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change.”

Can the retreads at FNN actually find an individual Reddit poster, or is FNN just pretending to be criminal thugs? Either way the folks at FNN owe us and apology.

Education was once said to be experience reduced in time.   Nowadays, it might better be described as grievances reduced in time, from, via Legal Insurrection:

The University of Scranton in Pennsylvania is seeking to hire a new director to promote “feminist theories and knowledge” and “social justice theories” on campus, according to a job listing on Chronicle Vitae.

The new “Director of Cross Cultural Centers” will be tasked with managing the school’s Women’s Center, which is funded by the school’s $42,910 annual tuition. The director will be asked to “implement programs and initiatives on gender equity and social justice that incorporate feminist theories and best practices,” which include “identity development, social justice, and women’s leadership.”

Because social justice is intrinsic to the center’s mission, the director will also work alongside professors to “increase students’ understanding of feminist theories and knowledge” so that students are motivated to engage in “social justice action.”

These theories include ones such as “rape culture,” which posits that rape is so pervasive at colleges that one in five women will be victims of sexual assault, and “masculinity,” a feminist theory about how men are conditioned to adhere to “toxic” social roles.

Knowledge is not gendered. A fact is a fact.

Fact, men and women are different. Not different in the sense that one sex is better than the other, but rather just different. So explain how two populations, to wit male and female, who are different are equal. That is by what measure or set of measurements were used to base the theory that men and women are somehow equal?

Fact the concept of justice is a lovely idea. However it is neigh near impossible to explain. In court trial both the friends of the defendant and the victim will demand justice. Yet no matter what the outcome, one or both sides will will feel deprived. I am sure that in California v. Simpson, the defendant’s family felt that justice was served. The families of the late Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, not so much.

Moreover, how does the concept of social justice differ from the concept of justice? What is the measure of just and unjust outcomes? By whom are these measure to be established. Note, the Declaration of Independence proclaims that all men are created equal and entitled to certain right, among these are the pursuit of happiness. Not John Hancock et al only said men had the right to pursue happiness, and not that they had assurance of actually achieving it.

Aside from the theory that men and women are somehow equal, what is a feminist theory and how did it differ from a masculine theory? Further, how is feminist theory superior to masculine theory? Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion has been superseded but are the basic for interplanetary navigation. What feminist theory can make a similar claim?

Do you see the problem? In supermarkets apples are so common that consumers are forced to buy oranges. “Rape culture,” which posits that rape is so pervasive at colleges that one in five women will be victims of sexual assault. The complaint is about an over abundance of apples, but the so-called evidence is an over abundance of oranges.

So a degree from the University of Scranton is evidence of what?   I say, a  waste of time and money.  What say you.

The National Rifle Association published a video in April calling the left out on their violence.   In May a demented supporter of Bernie Sanders attempted to assassinate several republican congressmen.   In late June, some leftards take notice and get mad.

Timeline, published on Apr 7, 2017

Dana Loesch says the left uses their media to assassinate real news, and their entertainers to repeat the false narrative over and over again. The only way to save our country and our freedom from their lies is to fight the violence with the clenched fist of truth. The National Rifle Association of America is Freedom’s

Video:

Timeline:  June 15, from AM New York:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Congressman Steve Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House of Representatives, was in critical condition on Wednesday night after he and three others were shot as they practiced for a charity baseball game.

The gunman, who had posted angry messages against President Donald Trump and other Republicans on social media, opened fire on a group of Republican lawmakers and colleagues at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, outside Washington. He was wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police at the scene and later died.

Timeline:   two months after the NRA video was posted, and over a month since the attempted assassination of Representative Scalise elements of the fringe left decide to get mad at the NRA and Loesch. One Yesha Callahan writes in Root:

So, basically, the NRA thinks “they,” or the “left,” are violent, even though they’ve repeatedly referred to those on the left as basically having the fortitude of snowflakes.

So these violent snowflakes, the ones who are still waiting for the NRA to speak about the police killing of Philando Castile, and countless similar deaths at the hands of police officers, are the ones the NRA needs protection from. And NRA members need to protect themselves by arming themselves with guns.

Loesch didn’t merely call the left violent she used Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter video.   So speaking of video, or the lack thereof, where is video of Tea Party violence, from Wikipedia:

Reports of abusive behavior

There have been allegations of racism and abusive behavior by Tea Party protesters.[133][134][135][136][137]

On March 16, 2010, at a Tea Party protest at the Ohio offices of Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy, a counter-protester with Parkinson’s disease was berated by one of the protestors and had dollar bills thrown at him with additional protesters also mocking the individual.[138] The man initially denied the incident, but later apologized for his “shameful” actions.[137]

On March 20, 2010, it was reported that protesters against proposed health care legislation used racial and anti-gay slurs. Gay Congressman Barney Frank was called “homo” and a “faggot several times.”[139][140][141] Several black lawmakers said demonstrators shouted the N-word at them.[142]

The Tea Party’s alleged crimes, include calling Barney Faq a homo and directing the n-word at some black congressmen. No record of how long Congressman John Lewis was in intensive care.

If Lying Lizzie, b/k/a Elizabeth Warren, is so intent on a single payer health care rationing system, I insist she be the first, and last, to sign up, from Sun(UK):

The appalling statistic heaped pressure on Health Secretary ­Jeremy Hunt to come to the aid of the crisis-ravaged NHS.

AT LEAST two Brits a day are dying of thirst or starvation in our ­hospitals and care homes.

Out of sight … patients are being “forgotten to death” in a social care scandal that sparked nationwide fury last night

[…]

Malnutrition was mentioned on the death certificates of 297 patients who died in hospital during 2015, while dehydration was cited on 429.

[…]

Across the year, an average of two patients died either malnourished or dehydrated every day.

Ian Mack, whose dad died from dehydration in hospital in 2008, said: “He was absolutely forgotten to death.”

Denying water to patients in the UK is not a bug. Rather it is a feature, from Wikipedia:

The Liverpool Care Pathway for the Dying Patient (LCP) was a UK care pathway (excluding Wales) covering palliative care options for patients in the final days or hours of life. It was developed to help doctors and nurses provide quality end-of-life care. Now discredited, the LCP was widely abused as a ‘tick box exercise’, with patients being casually assessed as terminal, heavily sedated, and denied water so the diagnosis became self-fulfilling. Hospitals were also provided cash incentives to achieve targets for the number of patients dying on the LCP.[1]

[…]

While the initial reception was positive, it was heavily criticised in the media in 2009 and 2012 following the practical application by Liverpool Community Health care staff. In July 2013, the Department of Health released a statement which stated the use of the LCP should be “phased out over the next 6-12 months and replaced with an individual approach to end of life care for each patient”.[2] However, The Telegraph reported that the program was just rebranded and that its supposed replacement would “perpetuate many of its worst practices, allowing patients to suffer days of dehydration, or to be sedated, leaving them unable to even ask for food or drink.”

If government assigned physician deems that you are dying and then denies you water, you will surely die.

It is no shock that the Clinton News Network, CNN, uses slightly less sock puppets than Mrs. Clinton Clinton’s various presidential campaigns.   So lets hear from CNN’s newest sock puppet:

(CNN)Sesame Street’s Elmo says refugee kids are just like kids everywhere.
“They like to play and learn just like Elmo and all his friends at Sesame street” he said during a Facebook Live interview with CNN on Monday.

The 3 1/2-year-old Sesame street character visited a refugee camp in Jordan back in February, and described the trip as “really wonderful because Elmo got to meet a lot of new friends.”

Only on Clinton News Network can a figurative three and half year old character be pawned off as an expert.

Nobody tell the ‘rats, but they are losing.    Little Donny, b/k/a President Donald Trump had a big day.

Item Supreme Court bitch slaps Ninth and Fourth Circuits and rules the Little Donny’s travel ban is not a Muslim ban.   Professor William Jacobson:

“Nine Justices agreed on this. Nobody said the 4th and 9th Circuit injunctions should continue in full force and effect. Not a single Justice said that. The only question was how much of a slap down they were going to give to the 4th and 9th Circuits, and I think they gave a substantial one….”

CAIR hit hard, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad:

“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court ignores the anti-Muslim bigotry that is at the heart of the travel ban executive orders and will inevitably embolden Islamophobes in the administration to expand efforts to target the Muslim community with unconstitutional and counterproductive policies. It also ignores the almost-unanimous rejection of the Muslim ban by lower courts due to its religious intolerance and racial animus.

“While the court continued blocking those parts of the Muslim ban that would prevent entry for anyone with a ‘credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States,’ it has opened the door to legal chaos and official overreach in embassies and at the border.

“We will work with our civil rights partners to offer a legal and legislative response as the Muslim ban moves forward on the ground and in the Supreme Court.”

Item, no Russian there, there:

A producer for CNN admitted in a newly released undercover spy video that President Trump is “probably right” in accusing his opponents of engaging in a witch hunt as it relates to collusion with Russia.

The video, published online Monday night by conservative sting activist James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas website, shows John Bonifield, a CNN producer who covers medical issues, saying, “I just feel like they really don’t have it [proof of collusion] but they want to keep digging.”

Item, CNN retreats on fake Russian News:

CNN is changing its rules for covering Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, and enhancing publishing restrictions for online stories, in the wake of a retracted story published on Thursday.

BuzzFeed obtained an email sent to CNN employees Saturday morning that stated no one at the network can publish “any content involving Russia without coming” to Rich Barbieri, the CNNMoney executive, or a CNN vice president.

Little Donny is winning and Obamatards like Susan Rice, James Comey and Loretta Lynch should be looking to retain lawyers.
