You Thought Occasional Cortex Was an Accident?

Nope. There’s a guy behind the curtain that shields her from reality. AOC was groomed by rich capitalists. Think of those talent shows that find performers who look good and sound good reading a script. Then polish them up till they’re good enough for prime time. Simon Cowell comes to mind…but he’s in real show business, not politics.

In this case, it’s not Simon C. doing the grooming but an entity (a PAC, Political Action Committee) called Justice Democrats.

What a group of motley capitalists behind that curtain. Like, man, these people are part of the American nomenklatura, fer sure. And just like all totalitarian groups, they expel anyone who ever had a wrong thought, no matter how long ago they expressed those ideas. So Cenk Uygur has been airbrushed.

OC – or AOC, if you insist – is our latest actress in Washington. And she’s having more fun than a blond would. So take that, white guys!

The Verdict Against Tommy Robinson in the UKSSR

Here is Tommy’s video on what went down in Cambridgeshire:

The videos were clear, as was the evidence presented by Luton police intel that Tommy Robinson was not a risk. So what. The Alice-in-Wonderland judge found for the police anyway, and Tommy has to pay their costs. Actually, he’s paying for being an enemy of the state of Soviet Britain.

What a travesty. Dollars to doughnuts, the mendacious MSM in Britain will be all over this.

Tommy’s Trials and Tribulations, Day Three

Ezra Levant says the lawyers for each side have to give their summaries in the coming day(s) before the judge can rule. Tommy says all he wants is an apology for the out-of-line bully-boy (my words) behavior of the police.

But they are stiff-necked and can’t apologize to a chav. Not a chance.

Ezra has to return to Canada so he won’t be present for the remaining (two?) days of the hearing. However, once this thing is over and done, he plans to put back up the tweets he had to delete after this judge put the kibosh on his efforts.

Keep on truckin’ Tommy.

Surreal Soviet Judiciary in the U.K.

Here is Ezra Levant’s report from today’s events in Cambridgeshire’s court at Tommy’s Trial. What he experienced is disturbing in the extreme:

What chance do regular working-class Brits have when their tongues are cut out by their betters?

I pray Ezra makes it back to Canada in one piece and on time. Evidently, he scared those itty bitty policemen.

Never was I so glad to be an American.

Drink Up, Kiddies! It’s Educational!

Templin: “Chaperoned boozing” as an experiment at school

After mandatory porn class fitting into the scheme of early childhood sexualization of six- to ten-year-olds, our children now are going to have to learn how to booze at school. The red-red state government in Brandenburg wants to teach the “correct” drinking of alcohol in a tax-financed project.

As Nordkurier reported earlier, at the beginning of this week, outraged parents called into the editor’s desk. Their children had brought home a paper from school for parents to give their consent for a “school experiment”. In it parents were expected to give written consent that during class their minor children would be given alcohol under the guise of a “drinking experiment”.

The grammar school of Templin on the Uckermark had invited 90 students from the 9th class for this “experiment” in getting kids drunk, chaperoned by the school.

It was explained that for those under 16 years old, a maximum of three Trinkeinheiten (TE) is optimal. This corresponds to about 0.6 liters (1.25 pints) of champagne or wine. And the highest amount that is given to the minors corresponds to up to four TE, which is about 0.8 liters (1.7 pints) of wine or 1.3 liters (2.75) pints of beer, which the “youths” are supposed to drink under supervision.

Even though the school principal Barbara Liedtke admitted that even she would basically be “flat on the floor” after one liter of beer, she defended the boozing class. Because, after all, this was about observing the consequences.

So now students have to play at being guinea pigs for the country.

“First we’re supposed to teach our kids about the damaging effects of alcohol and drugs. And now they’ll get the booze handed to them by their teachers at school!,” says one angry mother.

The medical insurance company DAK has also reported concerns. Rüdiger Scharf, a spokesperson for DAK, is outraged: “Children are not guinea pigs;” this can be done without alcohol. In a similar project conducted by DAK, the subject group was given so-called intoxication goggles which simulate a high alcohol level, Scharf explained.

According to the people responsible, this joint-joint-scholastic getting hammered on command is supposed to promote the “responsible handling of alcohol” in the future.

Beclowned in Virginny

The Baron has been compiling a file of material and links on the ongoing Governor Coonman crisis. To entertain himself he includes nicknames, side remarks, etc. of his own composition. I’ve become alarmed, because it seemed he might crack a rib from laughing at everything, so I thought I’d better post this and put his mind at rest.

Note: I’ve redacted some of the naughtier soubriquets.

  • Governor Ralph Northam (white Democrat) a.k.a. Coonman

    Had a photo of someone in blackface & the KKK in his med school yearbook. Admitted putting shoe polish on his face to do a Michael Jackson act, including a moonwalk.

  • Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax (black Democrat), a.k.a. Junior Assistant [Clown]man

    A woman named Vanessa Tyson, also black, accused him of forcing her to perform oral sex on her years ago. He says the act was consensual.

  • Attorney General Mark Herring (white Democrat) a.k.a. Ras[cal] Honky

    Told Gov. Coonman he should resign after the scandal broke. Later admitted wearing blackface to mimic his favorite rapper.

  • Next in line: Speaker of the House of Delegates Kirk Cox (white Republican)
     
  • Supporting cast: Virginia Rep. Bobby Scott (black Democrat), a.k.a. Congressman [Clown]

    In 2017 Ms. Tyson told his office about Justin Fairfax’s alleged molestation of her. Bobby Scott also has a #MeToo shadow in his past.

Conservatives, Liberals, and Leftists

This could as well be titled “The Death of Civility”. I would say “public civility” but you’re not even safe at Thanksgiving Dinner anymore.

If there is one thing that defines leftists, it’s their rude, nothing’s-too-crude forms of rhetoric and their favorite past time, scapegoating.

Prager U’s brief delineation of the problem is spot-on.

There is any number of recent examples of this sad phenomenon; you can see them in our nightly newsfeed. Just to name two of the most egregious, see the attempted slaughter of that schoolboy, Nicholas Sandmann. He had the hate-filled audacity to stand gazing at a stranger who walked up to him banging a drum in his face. The man – a professional “Native American” – clearly invaded the young man’s personal space (not to mention damaging his hearing by pounding on that drum up next to his ear), but it was Nicholas who was excoriated repeatedly for his so-called “smirk”. It was just one more group demonization by leftists hungering for scapegoats. And, no, “slaughter” is not too extreme a word to employ in this case; there have been calls from rabid leftists to hurt/kill him and his family.

The scapegoats du jour are white males, of which Nicholas Sandmann is one.

A further example is Virginia’s governor, Ralph “Coonman” Northam, who expressed agreement with a proposed bill in the Commonwealth’s legislature that would permit infanticide. That bill has since been removed from consideration but now it appears ol’ Ralph is about to resign/be impeached. For supporting this dead-letter piece of legislation? Nope. He’s guilty of having posed in a racist picture back in the 1980s; that is his mortal sin. “Racism” is the current unforgivable. Infanticide is okay, though; witness New York’s new abortion law.

Governor Northam is an unexceptional politician. Most Virginia governors are unexceptional; they are limited to one six-year term so the office is used as a stepping stone to bigger political plums. While the state tends to vote Republican in national elections, our governors are usually Democrats. Those who ran against Northam in the primaries are kicking themselves for not having found his medical school yearbook photo, but you can be sure that in the future all political “oppositional research” will include digging into yearbooks, looking for dirt on potential candidates.

The main thing that concerns me about a new election (besides the state and local expense) is that a former candidate, Tom Perriello – defeated in the primary – will jump at the chance to run again. Our Congressional District knows Perriello all too well. He’s a Soros boy, working somewhere in the bowels of George’s “Open Society” leftist org. During the 2008 election, he rode in on Obama’s coattails, only lasting one season. Back then, the B and I were part of a group who questioned him about our rights as citizens. The question posed to this Yale-graduated lawyer was, “what is considered to be the origin of individual Americans’ rights?”. To which he answered, “the government”. Someone then reminded him that our rights were stipulated in The Declaration of Independence when we formally rose up against England. So our rights pre-date the U.S. Constitution. Lucky for us, we won that War of Independence.

It is now open season on white males all the way back to their potty training, maybe even to misdeeds discovered on their mothers’ sonograms.

Oh, Craven New World!

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *

The next in line for governor when Northam resigns is our Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax. He should be a shoo-in, given that he’s an African American, right? Wrong. There is now an accusation of sexual assault dating back to 2004.

Are you news-fatigued yet? That’s life with those leftists, or as Mark Steyn calls them, the Wokestapo. They are indefatigable…and deeply. eternally resentful.

A Gallic Sense of Priorities

Ivan Winters lives in a very culturally enriched area of West Yorkshire (formerly the West Riding). For a change of pace, the following report from him has nothing to do with the cultural enrichment of the UK.

A Gallic Sense of Priorities
by Ivan Winters

I was onboard a ‘Barge Cruise’ on the River Aire in Leeds in early December. The reason for this is that I was invited to attend as a guest by a member of the Leeds Orange Lodge. I have always been a staunch Unionist, but in fact could never legally be a member of an Orange Lodge. I have been asked a couple of times, but Orange Order rules state that a candidate for membership must be a Protestant, and I have had to point out I am in fact a (non-practising) Jew.

In addition to enjoying the (excellent) buffet, the bar and a very friendly DJ playing music suitable for an older person’s tastes, there was also an official event partway through our cruise. This was the ‘official presentation’ of a medal to a lodge member. The medal was the French Légion d’Honneur!

How did this happen?

The member is called ‘John’ and he is a bricklayer by trade. He also teaches bricklaying and a couple of other trades at a local college. John was in Lille in France in November to attend one of the centennial events marking Armistice Day. He was staying at a local Novotel when there was a disturbance in the hotel lobby in the evening. The night porter was trying to eject two Albanian migrants who were making a nuisance of themselves. John went to the night porter’s assistance and helped him eject the migrants. Someone either in the local gendarmerie or the Novotel Hotel management reported John’s assistance up through their chain of command. The result was the issuing of a ‘Légion d’Honneur’ to John complete with a medal and a (bilingual) certificate detailing the circumstances which had caused the issue of France’s highest award for bravery. The certificate was signed by ‘President of the Republic’ Emmanuel Macron!

The official presentation was carried out by the Lodge Secretary and the Deputy Lodge Master. Following the presentation the DJ played The Marseillaise. Everyone on the boat stood for the playing even though many of those present will have been ex-Servicemen, and most British ex-Servicemen have their own robust opinions of French bravery.

This of course led me to think about the French President’s sense of priorities. For the past several weeks the media have covered the strikes/riots against Macron’s rule by the ‘Yellow Vests’. He has gone from being a president who has lectured world leaders, including President Trump, about their policy decisions, to having his policies very publicly rejected by his own electors! In addition to this very public humiliation, massive damage has been done to the French economy. Tourism is a major earner for the French economy but the seasonal tourist trade has been wrecked. In addition to the damage to buildings, vehicles, etc., the retail centres of major cities such as Paris have lost most of their expected Christmas and New Year’s seasonal sales revenue.

Baaaaa!

I don’t actually have any commentary on this one. Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation:

Freiburg: Eritrean arrested — Sexual assaults on women and animals

Freiburg — The investigators of the Criminal Police were able to arrest a 28-year-old man from Eritrea last Friday, October 26 2018, who is sought for several offenses in question.

The meticulous forensics of investigators in the case of a sexual assault on May 11 2018 revealed that DNA evidence collected from a 30-year-old victim matched already-existing DNA evidence. These could be secured in the context of violations of the Animal Welfare Act of 2017. The then-unknown culprit was charged with sexually targeting sheep and goats on a farm in Freiburg.

Thank You!

After a long hiatus, Jonathan Hanks returns with a guest-essay on Brett Kavanaugh, Elizabeth Warren, and the carnival freak show that American politics has become.

Thank You!

by Jonathan Hanks

The past few weeks have been a tumultuous time for the nation.

With the extraordinary spectacle of the Kavanaugh hearings we were all brought to the brink: not only of losing our democracy, but our collective sanity, as well.

You, and I, and millions of other decent and concerned citizens from wide-ranging points of view were horrified, and spent many sleepless nights over the Kafka-esque and circus-like atmosphere which commandeered not only the confirmation proceedings, but the life of the nation itself.

Supposedly wise and prudent lawmakers publicly undermined the bedrock of our Constitutional Republic, all while poring over high school yearbook entries from the early 1980s with the gravity one might have expected from a Stalinist tribunal.

And then, when it seemed like we were right at the breaking point, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine stepped onto the senate floor and addressed her colleagues, and her fellow citizens, and the world — and dispassionately, and intelligently, and articulately brought us back to our senses.

She reminded us that the rule of law was vital, and the presumption of innocence was paramount, and just as importantly she reminded us that we, too, believed these things. And we all breathed a collective sigh of relief.

Yes, some of us wept. But for many, and I suspect even most, this was ultimately an insufficient catharsis. The sturm und drang of the preceding weeks required even more serious medicine:

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present, Senator Elizabeth Warren.

In one fell swoop, and in what must be one of the most ill-advised political stunts in recent memory, we were finally free to do exactly what was needed most: Laugh!

Within hours of these solemn and pretentious and supercilious pronouncements that somewhere far in the distant past, somehow one thousandth of a remote ancestor’s DNA had managed to make its way into her genetic makeup (and thereby made her way up the academic ladder a whole lot easier), the well-deserved cacophony of contagious lampooning and old fashioned belly-laughter broke out.

Names like Faux-cahontas, and Liar-watha, and Fake-agawea were freely bandied about in public: we all started cackling like a high school sports team who’d drunk a few too many brewskies after a Friday night game.

But it was OK, because this was just the medicine that the nation needed most.

You see, sometimes the lie is so great that the best and only effective retort is hilarity.

Pure and simple.

And people with a functioning Bill of Rights can afford to laugh.

So thank you, Sen. Collins and Sen. Warren.

Each of you had your part to play in our national healing, by reminding us who we are.

And, who we aren’t.

Tommy Robinson, The UK Political Football

This persecution of TR would be illegal in America. Here, anyone facing trial is entitled to have a formal written document outlining the charges under which the government plans to try him. Evidently, that’s not the case in Old Blighted.

What has the UK become?

This is beyond dreadful, veering into sadistic, cruel and unusual. They’re playing “Kick the Can Down the Road” – in hopes his public following gets bored and the furore dies down, perhaps? The can they are kicking so hard is Tommy Robinson and his family.

As I’ve said before he is damaged from his previous stays in prison. I hope he can sue some bureaucracy or other for sufficient treatment of the sequelae from the last two imprisonments before they send him back. That probably won’t happen; they’ve stitched up the man and due process be damned.

Paul Weston Buries The Daily Mail

Evidently, that ignominious “report” the Mail ran online yesterday is still closed to comments. Don’t you wonder why? The lack of objectivity by the Mail is truly gob-smacking. Separating “news” (Tommy Robinson on vacation) from “views” (right-wing thug, etc., ad nauseam) seems to have been left behind in the 20th century.

Here is Pithy Paul, giving the archaic media the roasting it deserves:
