NY Times is subtly pushing for Amy Coney Barrett nomination

with 20 comments

Of course the New York Times is NOT the friend of Republicans, so if they are trying to instigate Trump to pick Amy Coney Barrett, that means she’s a bad pick.

First, we have Frank Bruni’s op-ed column which aims to make Barrett seem like the most exciting pick.

Barrett, you see, talks readily and proudly about her Catholicism, making no bones about its presence at the center of her life. She and her husband have seven children, two of whom are adopted. She belongs to a mostly Catholic group, People of Praise, whose members make an especially intense commitment to their faith.

And Republicans expect — and want — liberals to be so freaked out by this that they oppose her in a manner that can be branded anti-religious. They’re setting her up to be a Christian martyr, minus the grisly end, and daring Democrats to take the bait.

And then, today, there’s a NY Times news article proclaiming that Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Front-Runner, Once Argued Broad Grounds for Impeachment, implying that Democrats are looking forward to a Kavanaugh nomination so they can talk about impeachment.

These are all lies. Democrats are actually looking forward to a big fight about abortion, and they hope that Trump is stupid enough to fall for it. The NY Times thinks that Barrett is the weakest candidate who has the best chance of being defeated. They know that Trump became president because of votes from prole whites in the Rust Belt who are not evangelical Christians and many of whom are pro-choice.

* * *

I would also point out that the idea that liberals and the mainstream media would go soft on Barrett because she’s a woman, that idea is total BS. I guarantee you that she will be skewered mercilessly and will not get the slightest deference merely because she has a vagina. It’s all out war for them, and Barrett is the ultimate enemy.

* * *

A photograph in this article implies that Amy Coney Barrett’s sister and brother-in-law also adopted two black kids. It must be a thing with their weird religious sect.

* * *

Because of the “covenanted” relationship, which involves reciting the five-sentence promise with other covenanted members, the group is tightly knit. People of Praise leaders refused to provide a copy of the covenant, [source]

Secret doctrines that only the most committed members are allowed to know, that’s the hallmark of a cult.

Ann Coulter says the same thing, that the mainstream media is trying to manipulate Trump away from Kavanaugh, maybe she’s reading my blog:

The 1980s is when bums became “homeless people”

with 36 comments

Look at the Google ngram viewer:

This NY Times article from 1970 demonstrates that newspapers used to call “homeless people” “vagrants.”

Midtown Eighth Avenue, where crowds lingering seven days a week include drug addicts, homosexuals, prostitutes, vagrants and thieves, has one of the highest arrest records in the city and some of its toughest problems of law enforcement.

Also how quaint that “homosexuals” hanging around is considered to be a problem and not a cause for a “pride” celebration.

Jarrod Ramos fallout

with 37 comments

This is dying down and I predict we will barely hear about this story after today.

The left was gearing up to go into a full week of massive outrage based on their totally wrong assumption that the shooter was some sort of right-wing type.

Of course, we see not a single apology from any leftist for jumping to wrong conclusions.

On the other hand, I apologize for leaving out from my list of 5 possibilities that actual correct 6th possibility: some guy with a local grudge, who’s “crazy” only in a colloquial way and not in a clinical way.

Even though Ramos appears to be half Hispanic, that is irrelevant to this particular episode. Ramos apparently considered himself to be white and not a minority, he looks pretty white. Without his weird facial hair, you wouldn’t be able to tell that he is something other than white. On the other hand, being Hispanic clashes with the liberal narrative of mass shooters being angry Trump-supporting white guys.

It is reported that Ramos stalked an ex-girlfriend, which would mean he’s not quite an incel. On the other hand, I think that may be incorrect, and the women he stalked was merely someone he had unrequited feelings for.

In the article, the woman said that Ramos had reached out to her on Facebook to say that she had been the only person who had been kind to him in school. Feeling that he might be experiencing some problems, the woman had encouraged him to seek counseling. That set off months of emails in which he alternatively asked for help and was nasty to her, she said. He called her vulgar names and even told her to kill herself, the woman told the paper.

She doesn’t really sound like a girlfriend, just some girl who wasn’t as cruel to him as everyone else at his high school. So maybe, “incel” would be a good description for Ramos.

* * *

Neither liberals nor conservatives seem to understand the phenomenon of white Hispanics, people who are theoretically Hispanic but think of themselves as white and look white (but may take advantage of being “Hispanic” when applying to college, because they would be stupid not to take advantage of it).

Mass shooting at Maryland newspaper

with 44 comments

1. Beta-male rage?
2. Disgruntled employee?
3. Right-wing nut pissed off at all of the Trump hate?
4. Islamic terrorism? (It happened in France.)
5. Some guy with schizophrenia?

UPDATE

Suspect is a white male in his 20s without identification and who won’t tell police his identity. This is new! (But “white” could mean a lot of things. Once upon a time, the media thought George Zimmerman was white.)

UPDATE 2

SJWs and libtards on Twitter have already been busy blaming Trump and conservatives for the shooting, without knowing any facts at all.

UPDATE 3

5 dead, “several” others “gravely” injured.

UPDATE 7:07 PM

The only additional fact I can find is that the shooter shaved off his fingerprints, so law enforcement is unable to identify him by his fingerprints.

I don’t understand the stupidity of law enforcement here. Why not release his picture, he’d then be identified pretty quickly.

BIG UPDATE

BREAKING / NBC News: A 39 year old white male has been positively identified through the use of facial recognition software as the shooter at a newspaper in Annapolis, authorities say.

A court authorized search of the suspect’s home is underway. Reported with @jonathan4ny

The response

Peter P. Strzok II is a United States Federal Bureau of Investigation agent. Strzok was the Chief of the Counterespionage Section during the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server. Strzok rose to become the Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterintelligence Division, which is the number two position in that division, and led the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections. (Wikipedia)

The clear implication is that Peter Strzok was leading the Russia investigation in order to “stop” Trump from becoming President.

The fakestream media will ignore this, and say that anyone paying attention is conspiracy-mongering. He means that we, the American people, will stop him in the voting booths, and not at we, the FBI, will stop him by framing him for colluding with Russia.

Anthony Bourdain commits suicide

https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/08/us/anthony-bourdain-obit/index.html

Second time this week that a famous successful person commits suicide. He left behind an 11-year-old daughter.

In case you don’t know who he is, he’s a chef who turned into a CNN reporter who had a successful travel/culinary series, or something like that, I never watched the series. It’s obviously a SWPL show, because nothing excites a SWPL more than international travel to exotic places where regular tourists never go, and eating “authentic” foreign food. The series is going to be removed from Netflix on June 16th, so better start watching quickly!

What’s the point of going on when you have a boring pointless cubicle job when a rich successful famous person like Anthony Bourdain or Kate Spade doesn’t even see any purpose to going on?

Trump and the Eagles

The fakestream media is refusing to report that it’s unprecedented for the majority of players and coaches from a championship team to refuse an invitation to the White House. What else is Trump to do besides disinvite them?

Prole whites need to STOP watching NFL and punish those millionaires (average NFL salary is $1.9 million/year) who disrespect their fans’ patriotism and who refuse to accept the legitimacy of the democratically elected President of the United States.

School shootings are fake news

In the sense that the fakestream media presents them as a huge problem, that’s fake news. We hear stories about parents who want to homeschool their children because of the out-of-control news coverage of school shootings.

Approximately 30 teenagers per year die from school shootings.

Meanwhile, approximately 1800 per year die from suicide, 2100 per year die from being murdered outside of school, and 5,700 per year die in traffic accidents. My source is this CDC web page.

The sooner we replace all of the human-driven vehicles with accident-free autonomous vehicles, the sooner we will save almost two hundred times as many teenage lives as we would save from ending all school shootings.

CNN interview with the guy who was evicted from his parents’ house

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/22/us/judge-rules-son-must-move-out-new-york-trnd/index.html

CNN interview with Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old who was evicted from his parents’ house.

This has to be the low point of television journalism. We have what looks like a popular girl dripping with passive-aggressive disdain for the loser. Why couldn’t they get a male to interview him?

Of course, there’s no doubt that he’s a loser, and that he’s bullshitting through a lot of the questions. If he would just admit that he hates jobs and wants to avoid them if at all possible, it would have been more refreshing and honest, but he didn’t feel like that was a socially acceptable answer.

He might have mentioned the pointlessness of working a crappy minimum wage job where most of his earnings would go towards paying rent for a crappy apartment in a bad neighborhood in Syracuse.

Later in the interview he says that he doesn’t consider himself a millennial because he’s a conservative, and the woman from CNN argues with him about the definition of millennial. After thinking about this some more, I think that he actually has a pretty valid point. Because the news media is so biased in favor of the big cities they live in, almost all of the magazine articles about the millennials focus on the millennials that they know. Not the millennials who live in crappy little cities like Syracuse* and voted for Donald Trump.

If she was going to ask him a useful question, why not ask him why he has such a stupid hairstyle? “Why don’t you get a haircut?” Funny that we associate unkempt long-haired guys with hippies, and hippies with liberals, but maybe in the year 2018, the counter-culture is conservative rather than liberal, so counter-cultural long hair is now an indication of conservatism and support for Donald Trump?

Given that this guy is just some loser who is only famous, or maybe infamous, for 15 minutes because the national news media decided to make a big deal about his sad story, I think it was mean-spirited of CNN to treat him like that.

*Syracuse the city is a crappy little city, but the surrounding rural areas of upstate New York are very beautiful.

Mass shooting at high school in Santa Fe, Texas

That’s Santa Fe, Texas, not Santa Fe, New Mexico.

All I know so far is at least 8 dead. The shooter, in custody, is a student at the school.

HE SOUNDS GREEK!

The suspected shooter arrested after a rampage that killed at least nine people at Santa Fe High School this morning is 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis.

“Classmates told NBC News that Pagourtzis wore a trenchcoat to school everyday, even if it was hot.”

Sounds like the kids from Columbine.

He also had social media pages with the usual pictures of guns and ammo and Nazi trinkets.

“Some students claimed that Pagourtzis was bullied by students and another teacher.”

Ah ha!!! Yes!!! That’s expected. Another bullied kid who sought revenge against the bullies.
