Imagine if Hillary Rodham Clinton had won the election instead of Trump. Do you think Obama would have suddenly reversed our Israel policy? Would Obama have expelled Russian diplomats?
The answer, of course is no, he would have quietly passed on these issues and let HRC handle them, and it’s hard to imagine that Russian “hacking” would have been an issue at all.
Obama is in bitter and vindictive mode and the goal is to sabotage Trump’s presidency by giving him a foreign policy mess to start out with.
This TV series can be described simply as Harry Potter but with 20-something magic students, and with sex. Including gay sex. The gaystream media, in its mission to normalize homosexuality, sticks gay sex everywhere these days. And they wait until midway through the season, because they know if they put the gay sex into the first episode, straight men would be grossed out and not watch the rest of the series.
It’s not highbrow fantasy TV like Game of Thrones but it was an enjoyable guilty pleasure. Season 1 is available on Netflix, and Season2 is coming out on the SyFy channel in a month.

Absconding an image of the nerdy white guy is the most likely case where some grumpy pissed-at-the-world photographer will sue me for copyright infringement.
To see what the nerdy guy looks like, use Google.
Republicans never blamed the hacker for losing the election.
And this is what I wrote about it back in 2008:
My thoughts on email hacking: I bet that the KGB is regularly reading emails of important Americans. If some teenage hacker can get at an important person’s email, why not a big hostile foreign agency supported by billions of dollars of funding? This should be a wake up call of some sort.
I guess no one heeded the wake up call. People really ought to read my blog.
In a comment a while ago, someone said “Lion, if the Republican candidate was hacked you’d feel a lot differently.”
Well actually, it happened in 2008, and back then I quite enjoyed being able to see some of her emails. I think I’m pretty consistent in enjoying the public viewing of important people’s emails.
I will once again state my opinion that publishing these emails is more like a college prank than a grave threat to the American Way of Life.

I believe I was right that the KGB was reading people’s emails. Do you think the KGB was reading Hillary Clinton’s emails on her unprotected server? I sure do.
But this doesn’t mean that the KGB gave the emails to WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks says that the DNC emails came from an insider, and we know that Podesta’s emails were stolen with a simple phishing scam which didn’t require a sophisticated malware programmed by the KGB’s top hackers.
Julian Assange personally hates Obama and HRC, and I also believe that hackers, even hackers in foreign countries, wanted Trump to win the election because hackers are prole and proles all over the world love Trump. Even proles in Russia love Trump. That proles love Trump is something that the SWPLs working for the CIA just don’t get.

And even if our government has rock-solid proof the release of the emails was directed by the Russian government (which it clearly doesn’t), the big hissy fit being thrown over it seems more like a last-ditch attempt to hurt Donald Trump then a reasonable response to a very minor public release of emails, especially considering that whomever hacked the emails did Americans a huge favor if they in any way helped to elect Trump (although I don’t think they helped at all because in retrospect no one paid any attention to the emails who wasn’t already a Trump fan, thanks to the MSM not reporting about them in any way that would be negative for HRC). And they also did us a favor by alerting people to take cybersecurity more seriously.
Talking about music that sounds white, the Barenaked Ladies have a very white sound (even though the video has some black guys with afros dancing).
I don’t particularly care for the fish-eye lens, or that they muffle the sound for twenty seconds to make like you’re inside a fish tank. As a video, I prefer watching Hey Violet.
I like this music video a lot.
Thank you Otis the Sweaty for bringing this girl punk rock group to my attention. Unfortunately, a handful of music videos on YouTube is the extent of their repertoire.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton from Arkansas writes an op-ed in the New York Times supporting immigration restriction.
We have an immigration policy today that few Americans support or voted for. It’s allowed legal and illegal immigration at levels divorced from what our economy needs. That has undermined the earning power of those Americans least able to afford it.
But in this election, Americans finally demanded an end to this unthinking immigration system. President-elect Trump and Congress should take that mandate and act on it promptly in the new year.
This op-ed is good news, and means that there may be support in Congress for Trump’s immigration policy, and that even includes reducing legal immigration.
“Curle” asks in a comment:
Why hasn’t a single word been popularized yet representing the journalistic practice of hiding the race of perpetrators?
A lot has been written about this, and the late Lawrence Auster had a lot to say about that in his blog.
Once upon a time, it was standard practice for the New York Times to mention the race of criminal suspects. But today, the mainstream media believes that racism is the greatest evil imaginable, and that it’s their job as responsible gatekeepers to hide any news that might cause Americans to become more racist. Drawing attention to the fact that blacks commit crime at approximately ten times the rate of whites is one such thing that the mainstream media believes would make Americans become more racist, and therefore must be hidden.
Malls in the 1980s had the following fun stores which no longer exist:
Coin-operated video arcade
Record store (with vinyl records)
Store that sold Dungeons and Dragons stuff
Art supply store
Furthermore, department stores like Macy’s used to have televisions and stereo systems.
After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.
While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another.
The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.
That study took place before warmists took over the government and stacked all of the scientific agencies with global warming True Believers whose goal is to do missionary work spreading belief and alarm over global warming and not to do real science. (That takeover seems to coincide with Al Gore become Vice President in 1993.) Hopefully Donald Trump will fire all of the warmists. Once you have the government paying for real scientists with the freedom to do real research, there will no longer be a “consensus” of global warming.
