Isn’t it surreal that we have such a thing? Isn’t it disgusting that so many people, and especially our leaders,  couldn’t care less?  Below is a letter from a podcaster/journalist who walked through open doors on Jan 6th. I posted it in its entirety because one day this could be any of us. Preview Open

Given the downstream destruction and deaths that resulted from the antics of fools and reprobates following the George Floyd incident video coming to light, even a well intended person that seeks justice who captures such an incident on film again may pause and think very hard before turning over such a video for consideration by […]

For Shame, Twitter

 

Update: The Real David Hogg is back. I just read this tweet from him, which was posted at 7 PM EDT:

I’m back! They reinstated my account just a little while ago, even though Twitter said it ‘would not be restored.’ Thank you to everyone that helped clear this mess up! I’ve been very clear from the beginning that I am not THAT David Hogg. 🙏 🇺🇸

How to Assassinate a CIA Operative and Get Away With It

 

The Sheraton place of the Piano Bar and former American Embassy location

It was a hot day in a dusty city, Tbilisi the Capital of Georgia, there was little power and anarchy ruled in the streets. An oasis of calm, like a castle of old, stood on a hill just inside the eastern edge of the city the Sheraton “Metechi Palace” Hotel. With generators and money to burn the Hotel always had power and the owners of the Hotel were connected. The most powerful criminal organization in the country the “Knights” or Mkhedrioni provided security to the grounds. The American Embassy rented out entire floors and had their own security, among them were Delta Force Operators, and Freddie Woodruff long-time Soviet Expert and CIA Station Chief in charge of the Delta Force mission and charged with monitoring the KGB led drug trade through Georgia.

“I’ll tell you another story” says Alexi. “It begins with a dwarf coming out of the mountains to trade with the City of Man.” ‘What do you mean it’s just as good as gold?’ asked the dwarf. His eyes squinted out from under bushy eyebrows. His old and lanky ox shuffled idly under it’s burdens. […]

Infuriating Insanity

 

The September 10 edition of NR has an article on a gross miscarriage of justice. It seems that before her sterling* performance as the Attorney General back in the Clinton administration, Janet Reno was one of the first prosecutors getting convictions in the mass hysteria about child abuse in daycare centers back in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

As it happens, there is still one man in prison, Frank Fuster, from those cases. It’s bad enough that he’s there for a crime that never happened, but the way that the conviction was obtained makes it so much worse.

The Left’s Proxy War with Islam

 

shutterstock_313426106The Left’s most recent bout with insanity is, at least in part, due to increasing turmoil and carnage in the Islamic world. Progressives oppose most of the Islamist agenda — the subjugation of women, execution of gays, slaughter of innocents — but their belief that Western Culture, Western Imperialism, and (worst of all!) Western Cultural Imperialism are responsible for all of the world’s ills make it impossible for them to speak out against any culture but their own. Instead, they attack such proxies as they can find in the West with an intensity that is all out of proportion to the offences they claim to perceive.

Any resistance to allowing men dressed as women to use women’s restrooms is denounced with a fervor that would be far more appropriate were it reserved for the routine execution of homosexuals in some Muslim countries. Micro-aggressions against women perceptible only to themselves are the focus of a rage that would be understandable were it directed against the execution of Muslim women for the “crime” of being raped. Their conflation of distasteful speech on college campuses with violence and rape lies in sharp contrast with their disregard for ISIS’s violent rape of thousands. Their promiscuous use of the word “genocide” in connection with cultural evolution would make sense were it in response to the wholesale slaughters of Christians, Jews, and Yazidis in the name of Allah.

Like the drunk who searches for his keys under a street light, the Left searches for injustice only in the West. And find (or invent) injustice they must, because that’s the only way they can prove to themselves and others that they care. As their ideology requires them to discount the elephants of Islamic violence and hatred, so the gnats of Western injustice they denounce become ever more microscopic in order to demonstrate just how exquisitely attuned they are to human suffering.
