Kamala Harris and busing: I call bull

with 61 comments

Harris implied at the debate that busing saved her from going to a crappy ghetto school. Nothing could be further from the truth. Her father was a college professor at Stanford, and her mother was a medical researcher. She was never going to go to any school other than the kind that professors at Stanford normally send their children to. If anything, busing made her education worse.

If Biden had any guts, he would of told her that her busing story is as bogus as Elizabeth Warren’s American Indian ancestry. But there’s no Democrat who has the guts to stand up to the crazies in their party.

The Donald forum banned (for all practical purposes ) by Reddit

with 103 comments

More social media censoring of conservative voices.

The forum is now totally invisible at Reddit, even if you’re subscribed to it, unless you know the link (and few people who use that forum probably have it bookmarked), and if you do know the link, you get a big warning message: https://www.reddit.com/r/the_donald/

Who’s watching the debate?

with 45 comments

I think I will just wait for the highlights to show up on YouTube.

Here’s a highlight from 2012 of Obama making fun of Romney for saying that Russia is a threat to America:

“… a few months ago when you were asked, what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaida, you said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

Hay un nuevo fiscal de distrito en Queens

with 64 comments

Richard Brown, who was the DA forever (and Jewish despite his gentile-sounding name), died last month.

I remember meeting Richard Brown when I worked as an intern at the Queens DA’s office a long, long time ago, and I remember that he was short and had a very large pot belly. (And I also remember Jack Ryan, who was taller and skinnier than Richard Brown, but still had an impressive gut.)

There was a primary election yesterday, and the more qualified candidate, a Jewish woman named Melinda Katz with a long record of public service (which includes being the Queens Borough President), lost to a 31-year-old extreme liberal Hispanic woman, Tiffany Cabán, a public defender who promised to go easier on criminals (normally the opposite of what gets you elected as a DA).

Queens is only 31% non-Hispanic white. Some of those whites are Republicans, so the Democratic primary has an overwhelming majority of “minority” voters. I’ve pointed out before that the SWPLs running the Democratic Party will eventually lose control of it to minorities.

Billionaires WANT their taxes increased

with 91 comments

Whenever I post about this, the same commenter makes the dumb argument that it’s some sort of conspiracy. He’ll write something like “they only want an income tax increase so that it will prevent other people from becoming wealthy, while their wealth remains untaxed.”

But there’s no way to reconcile that conspiracy theory with what the billionaires are actually asking for: a wealth tax, only on the top 0.1%.

We are writing to call on all candidates for President, whether they are Republicans or Democrats, to support a moderate wealth tax on the fortunes of the richest 1/10 of the richest 1% of Americans—on us. The next dollar of new tax revenue should come from the most financially fortunate, not from middle-income and lower-income Americans.

When will Republicans give rich people that tax increase that they are asking for?

Insider Blows Whistle & Exec Reveals Google Plan to Prevent “Trump situation” in 2020 on Hidden Cam

Proof that the suggested search results, as well as other things, are being manipulated by AI programmed to be politically correct.

And that Google is secretly working to defeat Trump in 2020.

Time to bust up the monopoly.

More media bias from Google and CNN

with 6 comments

“White rule?” Another example of a CNN “news” story that’s really an editorial or op-ed, and Google promoting it. Fakestream news media indeed. When will DoJ break up this Google monopoly?

Amazon.com is full of counterfeit goods, even books

with 34 comments

Maybe I should say especially books, because they are pretty easy to copy, however the copied books, if they are copied form a paper version, are usually are riddled with scanning errors and bad formatting.

A few months ago I bought a RII wireless keyboard, received a counterfeit from Amazon even though I selected Amazon.com as the seller. I returned it and obtained a genuine product from a seller at Walmart.com.

From now on, I assume that if any product is commonly counterfeited, buying it at Amazon will give you a counterfeit.

The case for Buttigieg winning the nomination

with 106 comments

Last weekend, the NY Times reported that Pete Buttigieg was the hottest ticket on the Wall Street fund raising circuit.

Fund raising alone, of course, doesn’t guarantee anyone a nomination. Jeb Bush had massive fund raising and it didn’t do him much good. But Buttigieg isn’t Jeb Bush.

What they like about him is that he’s the smartest guy in the top five. The only top-five candidate to graduate from an Ivy League college, and not just any Ivy League college, but Harvard. When other smart people, like Wall Street donors and elite journalists, see Buttigieg talk, they see someone they’d really like to see as president.

Buttigieg has the benefit of being a white male (deep down, everyone has more faith in the ability of white males), but because he’s gay, he also has victimization status, so SJWs won’t have to feel guilty about voting for him. Plus if there’s any gay vote in the Democratic Party, he ought to dominate it.

Buttigieg’s biggest roadblock going forward will be dealing with the blacks. Even before the police shooting in his hometown, he was an anti-black, the very opposite of a black type of personality. Blacks will never be enthusiastic about him, although blacks tend to vote for whomever black leaders tell them to vote for, so it’s still possible he could pick up black votes. But probably, if Biden’s campaign craters, Harris (Howard University and HasTTTings College of Law graduate, failed the bar exam) will pick up his black support rather than Buttigieg.

I smell BO in NJ

Bad odor while walking in the tunnel under the tracks at Metropark. I look around, and sure enough, I see two Indian guys.
