Rape rooms in Philadelphia

image

PHILADELPHIA — It’s depravity writ small.

The Left’s insane crusade to include ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE in everything everywhere at all times without regard to public safety, appropriateness, decorum, or common decency is on display here at the Democratic National Convention in the Wells Fargo Center.

In a case of obnoxious virtue-signaling, there are “all-gender” restrooms at the convention site. They don’t appear to be mandatory YET.

I guess sex offenders have rights, too. We mustn’t deter them from their prey by imposing unwanted gender roles on them. That would be mean.

To be clear, I choose to characterize these unrest rooms as rape rooms because allowing big, strong men — whether they “identify” as men or women or octopusses — to relieve themselves alongside little girls and women is a proven recipe for disaster. These everything-goes facilities present a standing invitation to those seeking to commit sexual assaults. They paint a target on those who cannot defend themselves.

Speaking of targets, the ongoing boycott of Target stores because the company allows and encourages men to use women’s bathrooms, seems to working. The company’s stock price has been taking a well-deserved pounding. Rational Americans are making an example of Target by hurting the company’s bottom line. God bless them.

They know that this is not a trival matter.

It is not about the rights of gays, lesbians, or other people who for whatever reason choose to reject their sexual identity. Americans are free everywhere to use the public bathrooms corresponding to their biological sex.

It is about the norms that society needs to function. We should not turn American society upside-down in order to make a miniscule percentage of the population — transsexuals, transvestites, trans-gendereds — feel good about their own psychopathology. These people need help and moral support, not coddling.

Silicon Valley master of the universe Peter Thiel suggested last week at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland that the bathroom issue was unimportant. He’s wrong.

After telling GOP delegates he was proud to be “gay,” “a Republican,” and “an American,” he mocked a significant chunk of the conservative agenda.

“I don’t pretend to agree with every plank in our party’s platform,” he said. “But fake culture wars only distract us from economic decline, and nobody in this race is being honest about it except Donald Trump.”

“When I was a kid, the great debate was about how to defeat the Soviet Union, and we won,” Thiel said. “Now we are told that the great debate is about who gets to use which bathroom.”

It was a low point at the GOP convention but nobody at the Quicken Loans Arena seemed to notice.

Why is Sidney Blumenthal at the DNC in Philly?

image

PHILADELPHIA — Sid Vicious, the soulless Machiavellian political operative, is here, dragging the baggage of Hillary Clinton’s many scandals with him for all of America’s voters to see.

I refer to legendary sleaze-monger Sidney Blumenthal, a man who specialized in assassinating the character of those individuals that Bill Clinton’s White House considered to be problems. Blumenthal’s the Clintonista who lied about Monica Lewinsky, claiming she was a “stalker” of the then-president when in reality she was just another of Slick Willy’s flings.

So what is this radioactive leftist propagandist doing here at the Democratic National Convention?

Could he be advising Hillary?

Could he be here to manage any new Bill Clinton “bimbo eruptions”?

Maybe he is in place to take out errant Bernie Sanders supporters who are quite justifiably angry because the primaries were rigged by the DNC.

Perhaps he is here to spin away the vile pronouncements of his son, Max Blumenthal, whose hatred of America is exceeded only by his hatred of Israel.

More recently, the elder Blumenthal has been embroiled in controversy related to the mischief he’s been manufacturing under the auspices of Mrs. Clinton. While at Foggy Bottom Hillary hired him as a consultant over the explicit objections of President Obama who reportedly wanted nothing to do with him. (Obama consorts with morally reprehensible people every day so for him to run away from Blumenthal really says something.)

While Hillary was setting North Africa and the Middle East on fire during the Arab Spring she engineered, Blumenthal was on the payroll of the political favors trading platform known as the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Blumenthal, who has no known expertise in Libyan affairs, was advising Hillary on Libya and being paid $200,000 a year to do so by her foundation.

Blumenthal has also acknowledged getting paid $200,000 a year for his services by nut job David Brock’s tax-exempt nonprofit, Media Matters for America and an array of slimer groups like Correct the Record which shill for Clinton.

(Note: I took this photo of Blumenthal on Sunday around dinner time just after he arrived at the 30th Street train station in Philadelphia.)

Let the Great Democrat Fart-In rip!

Saul_Alinsky_closeup

PHILADELPHIA — Rules for Radicals author Saul Alinsky would be proud of today’s Democratic Party.

Bernie Sanders supporters angry at how their candidate was railroaded by the Hillary Clinton disciples who run the Democratic National Committee are planning a fart-in to embarrass Clinton at her coronation.

“To carry out the protest, Sanders’ convention delegates are preparing to consume as many beans as they can before entering the convention hall in order send a strong-smelling message to the former secretary of state and the party,” reports the New York Post.

Cheri Honkala, national coordinator for the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, is identified as the organizer of the action. Dry beans and canned beans have been arriving in Philadelphia from across the fruited plain. “It shows the level of absolute disgust that we’re at — we think we’re going to remember 2016 as the year we begin to bury the two corporate political parties,” Honkala said.

“The fart-in is to raise attention about things that really stink in our society,” said  Walter Tsou of Physicians for Social Responsibility,

If he were still alive Alinsky would be positively delighted to have inspired the upcoming flatulence fest.

Alinsky, the father of modern community organizing, planned a fart-in in Rochester, New York, that was aimed at Eastman Kodak.

Van Jones launching social justice PR firm

vanjones

PHILADELPHIA — Self-described “communist” and “rowdy black nationalist” Van Jones is starting a new “social justice” public relations outfit to be called Megaphone Strategies.

The firm touts itself as a “social justice media strategy firm run for purpose, not profit.” (Good luck with your efforts to circumvent human nature, Comrade Jones.) Molly Haigh, communications director for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee is his partner in this new adventure in antisocial activism.

Jones, who was President Obama’s green jobs czar until it was revealed that he was a 9/11 truther, will chair the organization’s board while Haigh will be president and oversee five staffers in the beginning.

AdWeek’s Fishbowl DC blog reports, quoting Jones:

Everywhere we look, we discover courageous people finding ways to break down barriers and solve tough problems. We need to hear their voices, and we need to elevate their work,” said Van Jones of the reason behind the firm’s creation, which will offer strategy, publicity, media training and event/social justice campaign planning services.

Megaphone’s clients include Vote.org, the ACORN-affiliated Working Families Party, and Demand Progress.

Jones, by the way, said Donald Trump’s speech on the closing day of the Republican National Convention makes him an American Hitler.

Well, actually, the America-hating communist didn’t literally say that but he came fairly close.

Although Trump’s speech was widely applauded in Republican circles, Jones called it a “schizophrenic psychopathic attempt to pull apart the Obama coalition,” like a moment “where there’s some big authoritarian movement, and some leader that’s rising up,” and “a disgrace.”

What do you expect from someone who hates everything America stands for?

What Jones said about Trump’s address probably isn’t anywhere near the worst garbage to have spewed from his mouth on CNN where he is a paid contributor. His commentary throughout the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last week was fairly uniformly malicious, ugly, and unfair.

Did Twitter suppress the DNC Wikileaks story?

INGSOC_1984

Given what we know about Twitter and the leftists who run its Thought Police force, my off-the-cuff guess is YES, Twitter did it. Twitter doesn’t deserve the presumption of innocence in the court of public opinion because it is a serial offender.

According to the Washington Examiner‘s Rudy Takala:

Twitter lit up Friday night with allegations that it tried to suppress news that secret-leaking website Wikileaks exposed thousands of emails obtained from the servers of the Democratic National Committee.

Friday afternoon, users noted, “#DNCLeaks” was trending, with more than 250,000 tweets about it on the platform. By Friday evening, it vanished completely from the site’s “trending” bar for at least 20 minutes. It returned as “#DNCLeak” after users erupted, though it was too late to quell their rage.

Why do I think Twitter suppressed the story? (I wrote about the DNC Wikileaks story earlier today on this blog.) Because that’s what the left-wing maniacs at Twitter do. These people can’t help themselves.

In 2013 Twitter created a “Trust and Safety Council,” a group of left-wing organizations aiming to control speech online and decide for themselves which news sources can be trusted. This insidious council includes the Anti-Defamation League, Dangerous Speech Project, and Feminist Frequency among others—many of whom receive funding from the awful Chicago-based John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. MacArthur is the far-left philanthropy that hands out the goofy so-called Genius Awards to pseudo-intellectuals and rabble-rousers who ought to be laughed at. Among the official Geniuses are the endlessly whiny racist Ta-Nehisi Coates and labor agitator Ai-jen Poo. (To be clear, not all Genius awards are undeserved. Many recipients are scientific innovators and groundbreaking academics.)

If something hurts the Left, it mysteriously disappears from Twitter or gets suppressed or downplayed.

Lane Davis and Milo Yiannopoulos (who just found himself banned from Twitter for life) wrote about this terrible situation in our May Foundation Watch titled “MacArthur’s Thought Police.”

Yes, the DNC did conspire against Bernie

Bernie

It turns out Bernie Sanders supporters were not paranoid. The Hillary Clinton machine, which dominates the Democratic National Committee, never had any intention of allowing a fair primary contest. The race was fixed.

We already knew this but the treasure trove of 20,000 internal emails from within the DNC that were freshly document-dumped by Wikileaks shows just how determined the Clintonistas were to rig the primary process.

As CNN reports today:

The revelation threatened to shatter the uneasy peace between the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders camps and supporters days before the Democratic convention kicks off next week.

The leaks, from January 2015 to May 2016, feature Democratic staffers debating everything from how to deal with challenging media requests to coordinating the committee’s message with other powerful interests in Washington.

The emails were leaked from the accounts of seven DNC officials, Wikileaks said. CNN has not independently established the emails’ authenticity.

DNC officials threatened to out Sanders as an atheist to hurt his candidacy in believer-rich Kentucky and West Virginia.

One problem: Sanders, unlike most of his fellow Marxists, isn’t an atheist. He is a Jew who has made statements indicating he is religious and spiritual and that these things are important to him.

Donald Trump seized this “I told you so” moment.

On Twitter he crowed:

Leaked e-mails of DNC show plans to destroy Bernie Sanders. Mock his heritage and much more. On-line from Wikileakes [sic], really vicious. RIGGED

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has chosen as her running mate — drumroll — a left-winger.

The would-be Vice President of the United States is the painfully boring Tim Kaine, one of Virginia’s two Democrat U.S. senators. His dullness could be precisely why he was chosen.

Although the media is already pushing the falsehood that Kaine is a moderate, he is in fact a tedious garden-variety leftist. He doesn’t rock the progressive boat and casts left-wing votes in the Senate. He is proudly pro-choice, not pro-life.

Kaine is a Harvard-educated lawyer. He previously served as governor and lieutenant governor of Virginia and as mayor of Richmond. He is also a previous Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman.

As Senate Conservative Fund’s Ken Cuccinelli explains in a new email to supporters:

Tim Kaine is not a centrist Democrat. He’s a liberal who, like Hillary Clinton, will help destroy this great country.

As a Virginian, I’ve seen this up close.

When Tim Kaine campaigned for Governor, he promised not to raise taxes. But then set a new land speed record in promise-breaking by proposing to raise taxes just six days after he was sworn in!

During his time in the Senate, Tim Kaine has been a liberal’s liberal.

In fact, he currently has a 0% Liberty Score from Conservative Review. That’s right, ZERO. He has voted wrong on every one of the key votes in the past three and a half years!

This includes votes to pass amnesty, raise the debt limit, create new gun control laws, and to fund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood.

More thoughts on Kaine to follow.

Trump Promises American Greatness

Donald Trump speech

The GOP presidential candidate delivers a masterful acceptance speech – and lays out an ambitious roadmap to the future.

By Matthew Vadum

This article was originally posted in FrontPageMag on July 22, 2016.

CLEVELAND — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gave a masterful acceptance speech last night as he savaged Hillary Clinton for her seemingly congenital corruption, assailed Barack Obama’s failed policies and the civil unrest he has fomented, and optimistically laid out an ambitious roadmap to the future.

Trump did an admirable job staying on-message.

“Together, we will lead our party back to the White House, and we will lead our country back to safety, prosperity, and peace,” he said. “We will be a country of generosity and warmth. But we will also be a country of law and order.”

America is being overrun by “violence in our streets and the chaos in our communities,” he said. “Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement.”

The number of police officers killed in the line of duty is up nearly 50 percent compared to this point last year, he said. Although 180,000 illegal aliens with criminal records have been ordered deported, they “are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens.”

Border crossings by illegals are out of control and these aliens “are being released by the tens of thousands into our communities with no regard for the impact on public safety or resources.”

Some of these illegals have been murdering Americans and that’s fine with Hillary Clinton, he implied. Clinton supports lawless sanctuary cities and favors open borders, he said.

“I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon, and I mean very soon, come to an end. Beginning on January 20th, 2017, safety will be restored. The most basic duty of government is to defend the lives of its own citizens. Any government that fails to do so is a government unworthy to lead.” Continue reading →

Cruz’s Broken Pledge

Cruz

And a weird sop to the racial-grievance industry.

This article was originally posted in FrontPageMag on July 21, 2016.

By Matthew Vadum

CLEVELAND — Ted Cruz did the Republican Party no favors last night when he pointedly refused to endorse GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, breaking a promise he and other rival candidates made at the outset of the primary campaign last year.

Cruz also made what appeared to be some kind of overture to race baiters by mentioning aspiring cop-killer Alton Sterling who was recently shot dead by Baton Rouge police during an altercation. It seemed very odd, but maybe in retrospect it shouldn’t. After all, Cruz went along with leftists and a few other GOPers by baselessly smearing Trump as a racist after he urged the deportation of millions of illegal aliens.

Of course Cruz is not the only contender for the Republican nod to go back on his word but he is the most high-profile and he won the second-highest number of convention delegates after Trump. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who also had intense run-ins with Trump throughout the primary process, swallowed his pride and appeared in a video last night endorsing Trump.

It is true that during the primary campaign Trump launched some nasty, low-blow attacks on Cruz (and others). He retweeted an unflattering photo of Cruz’s wife, Heidi, juxtaposed with a photo of Trump’s beauty queen wife, Melania, a move that was interpreted as a dig at Mrs. Cruz’s appearance. He embraced a crazy conspiracy theory that put Cruz’s father at the heart of the John F. Kennedy assassination. He saddled Cruz with the undeserved nickname “Lyin’ Ted.”

But the convention is supposed to be where these matters are settled, the aggrieved individuals and factions reconciled, and the party united to take on the other party in November. As the saying goes, politics ain’t beanbag — and America’s future is too important to jeopardize over one’s own hurt feelings.

It was a huge missed opportunity for Cruz to bring Republicans together and it is dangerous because many hardcore Cruz backers will now feel justified in withholding their support in November for the GOP’s nominee.

Cruz could not swallow his pride. The Texas senator was loudly booed off the stage at the Republican National Convention after he humiliated the GOP’s new standard bearer by urging Americans to “vote your conscience.” The boos and howling by delegates were powerful enough that they could be felt way up in the rafters of the Quicken Loans Arena.

Another atrocious anti-voter ID ruling

CLEVELAND — Another day, another terrible court ruling undermining honest elections.

The ruling from the Fifth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals struck down part of a common sense voter ID law in Texas.

This is especially worrisome because the Left is gearing up to go all out to put Hillary Clinton in the White House in November. A bad ruling weakening electoral integrity only emboldens left-wing fraudsters nationwide.

ACORN successor groups across America are conducting voter registration fraud drives in neighborhoods near you. For example, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) is registering voters in the San Francisco area. No good can come of this.

In this case the appeals court ordered a lower court to change parts of the 2011 Texas law to remove its “discriminatory effect.” Discriminatory effect is judicial supremacist speak for asking voters to take 30 seconds at the polls to prove they are eligible voters.

The ruling from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals instructs a lower court to make changes that fix the “discriminatory effect” of the 2011 law.

The Obama administration intervened in the case because it felt the state law was unfair because it made Texas residents produce one of seven forms of approved identification. These judges agreed, ruling that low-income minority voters are too stupid to obtain such ID.

The Texas Democratic Party was overjoyed because the ruling opens the floodgates to voter fraud. It called the statute “the most restrictive and discriminatory Republican voter ID law” in America.
