Kevin Hart & Hollywood's "Noble Savage" Racism

Jack Kemp

This is a great, profound article.

"Kevin Hart is out as the host of the 2019 Oscars just a few days after he was in. That's how it goes, these days. The internet giveth and the internet taketh away.

Hart - an accomplished, veteran comedian - was forced to step down after refusing to apologize for "homophobi" tweets from some seven years ago. The celebrity class is largely silent. Everyone knows they're on record saying something that their own outrage mobs would find untenable. No one wants to get caught in the tempest of their own making.

But Hart's displacement isn't just about being forced to bow to a merciless culture of rage. It also serves as a reminder that there is a giant gap between Hollywood fantasy of black America and the reality of black America. We may be paying a lot of lip service to actors and artists of color these days with nominations, indignant acceptance speeches and clever hashtags but the push by white Hollywood to present itself as more 'woke' than ever is just another form of white privilege.

Read the rest.

Mankato prof says Holy Mary didn't give consent to G-d's impregnation

Jack Kemp

Just when you thought they couldn't go any lower

https://www.theblaze.com/news/professor-says-virgin-mary-didnt-give-consent-to-being-impregnated-with-baby-jesus

Eric Sprankle, an associate professor of Clinical Psychology and Sexuality Studies at Minnesota State University Mankato, tweeted that he wasn't quite sure if the Virgin Mary had given "consent" when an angel came down from the heavens and told her that she would conceive the Christ child.

On Monday, Sprankle wrote, "The virgin birth story is about an all-knowing, all-powerful deity impregnating a human teen. There is no definition of consent that would include that scenario. Happy Holidays."

End excerpt.

A word from Tim:

Perhaps this dimwit missed the Gospel reading of the Annunciation:

30 But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34 "How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called[a] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”

38 "I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. "May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.{(Luke1:30=38)

Sounds to me like Gabriel asked permission for this, and Mary gave her consent.

Besides, the Creator has no obligation to ask for consent like some randy bar patron in a cheap hookup. Sorry, but The Almighty DEFINES what is good or not.

Tillerson; Lazy and Stupid

Jack Kemp

Rex Tillerson was given a chance to be Sec. of State and it didn't work out. Then, yesterday, he gave an interview where he trashed Pres. Trump.

There are probably thousands of men who would give their right testicle for the opportunity to be Secretary of State for a few months or, if thngs went well, for a few years. Even Madeline Albright was in awe of the office, noting that the first Secretary of State was Thomas Jefferson. Rex Tillerson sounds like a guy who just got fired from his job selling steak knives from a table on the boardwalk at Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Some commenters have called Trump classless for his reply but Trump gave Tillerson exactly the reply that he earned. One could imagine what "Give 'em Hell" Harry Truman would have said about such an ingrate. This Tillerson was, indeed, not worthy of the office.

Below is a brief description of Trump's reply to Rex Tillerson. It is followed by a comment by a woman calling herself "Illinios Mom" which sums up the situation quite well and to the point.


Rex Tillerson - Lazy and Dumb as a Rock

President Donald Trump ridiculed Rex Tillerson on Friday after his former Secretary of State criticized his leadership style. "He was dumb as a rock and I couldn't get rid of him fast enough" Trump said on Twitter. "He was lazy as hell." Tillerson aired his grievances against Trump, calling him "undisciplined" in an interview on Thursday, accusing him of trying to violate the laws and treaties. Tillerson stepped down as Secretary of State in March.

What kind of man thrashes the person who gave him an amazing opportunity, tremendous responsibility, an incredible experience, and a pretty good pension?

What exactly would Tillerson know about Trump´d personal life and the technicalities our our laws and treaties?

What´s with so many powerful men becoming gossipy old women? Comey is another one along with his whole team.

Squishy, delicate, snowflake "men" are definitely NOT attractive. Yuk.

Facebook is the villain and we all finally know it

Dana Mathewson

The real meat of this article is a ways down in, and it's a long article -- and it gets pretty technical. Suffice to say that Facebunk and the others really ought to have the gummint whack them down a few pegs.

https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/facebook-is-the-villain-and-we-all-finally-know-it

From the article:

"Despite repeatedly denying that Facebook sells its users’ data, the company emails released this week show that in fact it effectively did – that it leveraged our data to reward developers who spent a lot of money on the platform, and ice out its competitors, all the while making sure we, the users, never found out.

And let’s not kid ourselves that it’s just Facebook doing this. Five of the most valuable companies in the world today – Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Google's parent company Alphabet – have all commodified our data and used it to take over their respective sectors.

What’s equally unsettling is our government’s response. The questions that senators asked Zuckerberg during his April hearing clearly showed how little they understand about the basic workings of his company. The government has had at least 10 years to get on top of big tech companies’ exploding growth and power, but so far they’ve been allowed to act with free rein."

Climate summit language reveals real but hidden agenda

Paul Driessen

Climate Change News has published a helpful glossary of technical terms that it thinks are most important during the Katowice, Poland "climate summit.” Analyzing the list reveals a great deal about what is really going on there. For starters, not one word in this glossary addresses climate change. The 30,000 activists, bureaucrats and other "forward thinking” folks at the IPCC confab are actually designing a New World Order, not saving the planet. Their real focus is on how they will change the world, who is going to pay for that – and who is going to be in charge.

Science and logic analyst David Wojick explains it all in this revealing article – which outlines how the UN and its minions are using "climate change” as a smokescreen for planetary governance.

Connedservative Cures: For the West to Live, “Equality” Must Die

Selwyn Duke

Equality is the chief faux virtue of our time. Our obsession with it brings to mind the great G.K. Chesterton’s , "The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.”

Long ago the West erred by exalting "equality” at, ultimately, quality’s — and sanity’s — expense. In fact, it’s at a point where boys claiming girlhood are allowed in girls’ bathrooms and locker areas based on equality dogma. How do we correct this mistake? First, stop connedservative and realize that few people have pondered equality deeply and that, of those who have, few actually believe in it.
Let’s start with what most already reject: seeking equality of outcome. We so often hear, for example, that growing income disparities must be eliminated. Not only does this imply big-government redistributionism, but does "inequality” actually tell us anything relevant?

Consider: Imagine two tennis centers training children. After a given period, all the kids at the first are advanced beginners. At the second, there are some advanced beginners, a large group comprising varied intermediates, a decent-size set of advanced players and a few approaching tournament caliber. Which center exhibits more equality?
Now, at which are the kids faring far better on average?

Frexit? French protesters call for EU
exit as Macron fails to control
deadly Paris riots
Daily Express [UK], by Alessandra Scotto di Santolo    Original Article
12/8/2018 9:08:11 AM   
Yellow vest protesters in Paris have been calling for France
to leave the European Union as President Emmanuel Macron
struggles to control the deadly riots currently shutting down
the capital. The yellow vest protests in the French capital
escalated on Saturday with protesters firing tear gas canisters
against police officers and holding up banners calling for
France to leave the European Union. More than 400 people
have already been arrested with thousands of protesters
breaking police barriers to inundate the streets of Paris.
The so-called gilets jaunes have been protesting against
French President Emmanuel Macon´s policies for the
fourth weekend

END OF QUOTE

In honor of these French "Yellow Vests" defying the Macron
government, we will post here a link to the Marseillaise, the
French National Anthem with the words in both French and
English for our readers. The words that talk about standing
bravely against tyranny have rarely been as appropriate as
they are today in this current stand against the European
Union autocrats.

Go to La Marseillaise here.

Reindeer Games; the War on Christmas goes after Rudolf

Timothy Birdnow

They're doing it again!

As I've recently chronicled, the Intersectional Left, that merry band of endlessly chipping shoulders, has declared war on the duet Baby it's Cold Outside, and have driven the post-War song from the airwaves in many places. This is part of a general War on Christmas that Conservatives have been resisting for some time (which includes saying "Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas, the almost total banishment of religious Christmas songs, and a plethora of other things - like calling it a "winter holiday" or banning Nativity scenes in public places.) Every time we think they have reached Peak Scrooge they manage to dig deep and find just a little more in them.

Now they are going after the Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer television special. more...

Liberals More Racist than Conservatives

Timothy Birdnow

Our old friend Daren Jonescu chronicles a study by Yale that shows liberals speak more condescendingly to minorities than do Conservatives.

From the Yale report:

According to new research by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at Yale SOM, white liberals tend to downplay their own verbal competence in exchanges with racial minorities, compared to how other white Americans act in such exchanges. The study is scheduled for publication in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

While many previous studies have examined how people who hold racial bias behave in multi-racial settings, few have studied how whites who are more well-intentioned interact with people of other races. "There’s less work that explores how well-intentioned whites try to get along with racial minorities,” Dupree says. "We wanted to know their strategies for increasing connections between members of different social groups—and how effective these strategies are.” more...

Warren may be regretting DNA analysis on Native American heritage

Dana Mathewson

Your dose of humor for today. Methinks the Senator from Massachusetts indulges here in a little "speaking with forked tongue." And you don't have to go past the fourth paragraph to encounter it.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is reportedly starting to express concerns about releasing the results of a DNA test from October examining her possible Native American ancestry.

Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said she believes it’s important to be transparent and didn’t appear to regret releasing the results when talking to reporters Thursday.

"So, I have put it all out, in public, I've put out 10 years of tax returns, my hiring records and DNA tests all out there on the internet for anybody to see,” she said.

However, behind the scenes, Warren is reportedly expressing some concern she might have put her relationship with the Native American community in jeopardy, the New York Times reported. Outside advisers told the newspaper Warren will have to plan to repair any damage and may have to issue an apology statement all while confronting the issue on the 2020 campaign trail.

If you ask me, her support in the Native American community was likely rather shaky already.

Warren was criticized for conducting the tests and was accused of succumbing to attacks from President Trump – who has repeatedly called her "Pocahontas" in his campaign-style rallies and on social media.

The results reportedly revealed "strong evidence” that Warren had a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations, according to the Boston Globe.

According to the analysis, if Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother were Native American, Warren would be considered 1/64 Native American. Should Warren’s ancestor date back 10 generations, the senator would be only 1/1,024 Native American.

DNC Chair Complains that Voters Are Influenced by Church

Dana Mathewson

And by gosh, he makes it sound as if it's a bad thing.

Obviously, Minnesotans didn't get the message. But here's what he said:

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez on Wednesday complained that voters are influenced by what they hear in church on Sundays.

Perez claimed that Republicans have an advantage because "people buy” what they hear at church.

"And we all have to make sure that we’re fluent in what’s happening across our ecosystem so we can come to each other’s defense because we need to build a bigger orchestra. They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at the local level or Fox at the national level,” Perez said at an event for Demand Justice, a left-wing political group.

"I’ve learned this from the outreach we’ve done at the DNC. Why aren’t we penetrating, I ask? And I had someone in northwest Wisconsin tell me: ‘You know what? For most of the people I know, their principle sources of information are Fox News, the NRA newsletter and the pulpit on Sunday.’ And it should come as a surprise to no-one that our message doesn’t penetrate,” Perez continued.

"It should come as a surprise to no-one that that person has elevated the issue of courts to the top because that person on the pulpit is saying ‘ignore everything else that this person has done and is doing, we have to focus on one issue of Roe vs. Wade.’ And people buy it. Because that’s their only source,” Perez asserted. (RELATED: Tom Perez Says Obama Is Still America’s ‘Real President’)

California Makes Homeowners Employ Solar Panels

Timothy Birdnow

California has mandated that all new homes be built with rooftop solar panels.

According to Fox News:

"The provisions add an estimated $10,000 to the cost of building a single-family home – including more than $8,400 for installing solar and roughly $1,500 for energy efficiency. Proponents of these requirements, however, say the 30-year lifespan of the solar panels will offset the utility bills. A solar-industry representative cited by the Register said the net savings would come out to roughly $500 a year:

End excerpt.

This with California home prices double the median average. And solar panels generate huge amounts of carbon dioxide to build, and have to be imported, usually from China. And they don't work in cloudy weather, or at night. They also won't work when the air is full of smoke from the forest fires that result from not culling the forest areas of dead timber. Nice.

California seems determined to kill her economy and drive people away.

More Radio Stations Surrender to War on Baby

Timothy Birdnow

Morons and cowards across the country are joining in the ban on "Baby it's cold outside". According to CBS News:

"Following the lead of several other radio stations in the United States and Canada, Bay Area radio station KOIT said it was banning the holiday staple "Baby, It's Cold Outside," CBS San Francisco reports. Many listeners have said the song heard on countless holiday playlists is inappropriate in the #MeToo era — but others are outraged the classic tune has been taken off the air.

Penned by "Guys and Dolls" writer Frank Loesser in 1944, the song's lyrics describe a woman trying extricate herself from a date and saying "no, no, no," while a man insists that she stays as he moves in closer, pours her more alcohol, and warns about the weather outside. Critics of the song say the lyrics promote date rape.

"I made the decision, it's off for now," Brian Figula, program manager at KOIT radio told CBS San Francisco, adding he is considering leaving the ultimate decision up to the people.

Since Figula announced the decision, the station has received many angry emails and social media posts from people upset with the decision, accusing the station of political correctness.

"They're upset!" said KOIT radio DJ Freska Griarte who has heard from lots of listeners from phone calls and social media posts.

"They're like, 'why are you guys doing this? What is going on? It's just a song. While for some people, it means something more," Griarte said.

"I could definitely see where it's a little uncomfortable when you think about the lyric"

End excerpt.

Uh, no; this is not a case of a "woman trying to extricate herself from a date". This is a case of a woman - a woman with 1940's scruples - wanting to stay but playing hard to get. It's not just a common human behavior, one that goes back to the mists of time, but is in fact a behavior often seen in the animal kingdom as well. It's the kind of playful chasing that is at the core of courtship.

See my post on this here.

We need to boycott any station that caves to this. The way the Progressive Left advances is by attacking in spots and we do nothing. That has to stop. And businesses have to be more afraid of us than they are of them. It realy is that simple.

On a personal note; I've never liked this song, but I'll be damned if I'm going to allow the lunatic left to take it from us for ridiculous politiclaly correct reasons.

Sen. Gillibrand dismisses her own sons' Future

Jack Kemp

I once got into an argument on WABC talk radio with Curtis Sliwa's former wife Lisa. I merely said that his wife made my point while I was on hold and she went into this rant about how women are superior, etc. At that point, on the air, I called the (then) Lisa Sliwa a "female chauvinist sow." I can say the same of Sen. Gillibrand. Article author Karol Markowicz, speaking as a woman, says something similar but gives many instructive reasons why Gillibrand is devisive and not constructive in our nation's politics. Essentially, Gillibrand is calling all males "Deplorables."

Gillibrand's own sons have no place in her "future"
