Bigoted news…

leave a comment »

Longtime political journalist Stuart Rothenberg,  apparently in hysterics now that the governor of West Virginia has announced he’s leaving the Dems to become a Republican,  has sent out a series of tweets bashing the citizens of  the state as illiterate lay-abouts.   ABC and NBC were apparently too traumatized to  even report  on the party switch.

As John Nolte at the Daily Wire notes,  all of  Rosenberg’s smears were lies,  and easily proven to be so.   I very much doubt Rothenberg has ever set foot much outside of New York and D.C.,  much less actually in West Virginia.  I have,  and much of it is very pretty country with very nice people with mostly Southern manners,  though they alertly are a bit wary of Yankees as are most Southerners with any serse of history and good sense.   If my memory serves,  Rothenberg wrote last year that Republicans needed to get past immigration as a political issue if they wanted to attract enough non-white voters to win anything.  When I’m not too lazy to look up the exact quote,  I shall email it to him so he can chew on it for a while.

Dear lying media…

…if you’re the least bit curious about why most Americans find you a corrupt,  slimy lot undeserving of the protections which our Constitution affords you,  you might try telling  the truth  about the recent shooting in Fresno.   You  substituted “God is great!” for the shooter’s shouted words of  “Allahu Akbar!”,  knowing full well that your deliberate omission of the Arabic words was misleading at best.   Of course,  CNN  simply ignored the inconvenient story altogether,  lest it interfere with its narrative of mistreated and misunderstood peaceful Muslims.

Or you could have National Public Radio  stop peddling  the endlessly repeated lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms.   It does not,  but it does provide referrals for that and most of the other procedures it claims to offer.   The fact that Barack Obama helped spread the falsehoods during his presidency does not serve to make them true.

Of course,  the Fresno police haven’t  much clarified  the matter by declaring this a hate crime based on race because the killer of four was black and all the victims were white.  Can we say  “terrorism”  boys and girls?

Ahmed Chalabi, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

What might have been in Iraq if the State Department and the CIA had not vilified and lied about Ahmed Chalabi.   He was probably the one man who could have unified the country after Saddam’s ouster,  because he both understood democracy and embraced its tenets.   But the entrenched,  long-term corruptocrats at State and the CIA feared Chalabi and found him much more useful as a scapegoat when they failed to find the WMD Saddam had hidden.

Remember this when you vote.   A status quo candidate gives you the continuation of the same bad judgment already endemic at these agencies.   In this election,  Hillary will give you the same lawlessness and corruption which His Oneness has brought.   In fact,  she will depend upon it to stay out of jail,  and she will commit further crimes as her due.

UPDATE:  Here is  someone who disagrees strongly.

Sexiness of fertility rates…

leave a comment »

Democrats do not support life.   They support unfettered abortion and open borders,  the latter to use people from other countries to make up for all the unborn babies who are destroyed.   I am not anti-abortion,  but I do believe it should be seldom used,  not a tool for birth control.

Carl Jackson has a hard-hitting article explaining  the Left’s position,  and the lies it tells to avoid admitting them.   Nations with fertility rates which fall below 1.5 die.  We are at 1.9,  not very far away.   Democrats must now depend on the votes of illegal aliens to retain power.   Why do you think they clamor for amnesty and for calling them  “undocumented”,  when most of them have more  “documentation”  than you or I do?

The fact that 30% of those surveyed think Hillary Clinton would be a good president shows you that lying and cheating don’t bother Democrats much.   They are very much exemplars of “the end justifies the means.”   They simply do not think that Hillary’s bald-faced lies to the families of the Benghazi fallen or to the American people matter that much.   They see nothing wrong with promising to use my money to buy the votes of people who want to live off my hard work without putting forth their own sweat.

Think fertility rates don’t matter?   Consider that China  has now  changed its longstanding one-child policy,  not because the ChiComs give a happy damn about human rights,  but because they need more people in the economy and they don’t allow foreigners in.

Tireless liars…

The Obama Administration gleefully announced that 7.3 million people had signed up for health insurance on the state or federal exchanges.   The only trouble is  —  it wasn’t true,  because somehow at  least 380,000  dental plans were “erroneously” included in the total.

Sylvia Burwell, HHS Secretary, tweeted, “The mistake we made is unacceptable. I will be communicating that clearly throughout the dept.​”    Yeah,  I just bet she will.

Why do I smell a dead fish?   Because the previous HHS reports separated the dental enrollment from the medical.   The September report did not,  which explains why there was such a large increase in the number of enrollees claimed.

New York Times lied about Bolton…

leave a comment »

One would have thought that NYT reporter Jennifer Steinhauer would have  known better  than to think someone as smart and articulate as Richard Grenell would be fooled by a two-bit hack such as herself,  much less be shy about calling her out when she lies.

Regrettably,  the paper for which she works has long been in the business of printing all manner of lies,  and will doubtless continue doing so until it folds its inky tent and slips away.
