An Ignorant Time
A once-great magazine reflects how far cultural knowledge has fallen.
As a former Time reader, for one, and as a former Time writer and editor, for two, I can testify that my colleagues and I were quite familiar with the great comic novelist. We knew no writer sharper
or funnier than Evelyn Waugh when he satirized upper-class excess in Decline and Fall, Vile Bodies, and Black Mischief. The demolition job on the press in Scoop, a dazzling take on Italy’s 1936 war on Abyssinia as seen by a group of mendacious British newsmen, has never been equaled. I wouldn’t hire a writer who hadn’t read Scoop; it remains the manual on the malpractice of journalism across the pond and in the colonies.
For the record, should anyone be taking notes on Liberty Street, Waugh was described by Edmund Wilson as “the only first-rate genius the English have produced since George Bernard Shaw.” (A parenthesis for present-day Time employees: Edmund Wilson was the most prominent American literary critic to work outside the academy, writing on subjects as diverse as trends in current fiction, Freudianism, and the Cold War.) Gore Vidal later cited Waugh as “our time’s first satirist.” (Vidal was a prominent American novelist, playwright, and acidulous political commentator.)
When the dustup hit the Net, one of Twitter’s most popular commentators, Matthew Yglesias, owned up to his ignorance like a man—an unlettered man. ...

Americans shrug that Obama has left the world abroad a far scarier place.Obama: The Lamest Duck | PJ Media
By Victor Davis Hanson February 28, 2016
Obama is boxed in a state of paralysis—more so than typical lame-duck presidents.
His hard-left politics have insidiously eroded the Democratic Party, which has lost both houses of Congress and the vast majority of the state legislatures, state elected offices, and governorships. Obama has redefined the black vote, as a necessary, no-margin-of-error 95% bloc majority to offset his similar creation of an increasingly monolithic 65% bloc white vote. We are no longer individual voters, but, in Chicago-politics style, merely faceless “Latinos,” “Asians,” “African-Americans,” “gays,” “women,” and now “whites.”
Obama issues a new initiative—and the nation snoozes. He wastes the day on the golf links—and the nation snoozes. He smear his critics, invites a rapper to the White House whose latest album cover has a dead white judge lying in front of the White House—and the nation snoozes. He cozies up to America’s enemies and snubs our friends—and the nation snoozes. For the nth time, he blusters about closing down Guantanamo—and the nation snoozes. He opens the border even wider to welcome in more illegal aliens and future constituents—and the nation snoozes. Lame duckestry means not even being able to wake up your opponents.
Obamacare, borne of rank partisanship and serial mendacity, can survive until 2017, only by bailouts and executive-order manipulations. We now call health care affordable by ignoring the new astronomical deductibles: we pay premiums of $6,000 a year and forget that an annual $4,000 “deductible” ensures no one thinks the real cost is $10,000. Is that a small price to pay to ensure granny has contraceptive coverage?

"I don’t believe I ever lied to the public," is what she told CBS News yesterday:
“Well, I have to tell you, I have tried in every way I know how literally from my years as a young lawyer all the way through my time as secretary of State to level with the American people,” Clinton told CBS in an interview Thursday, when asked if she was always truthful with the public.That's difficult to square with what Jeffrey Zeifman claimed in 2008:
“I’ve always tried to. Always. Always,” she added.
'A lifelong Democrat, Mr. Zeifman supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation – one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifman’s 17-year career.'Perhaps all that time spent under sniper fire has damaged Clinton's memory.
"Because she was a liar," Zeifman said in an interview last week. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.'

Inside the Republican Party’s Desperate Mission to Stop Donald Trump - The New York Times
Addressing a luncheon of Republican governors and donors in Washington on Feb. 19, he warned that Donald J. Trump’s increasingly likely nomination would be catastrophic, dooming the party in November. But Mr. Rove, the master strategist of George W. Bush’s campaigns, insisted it was not too late for them to stop Mr. Trump, according to three people present.
At a meeting of Republican governors the next morning, Paul R. LePage of Maine called for action. Seated at a long boardroom table at the Willard Hotel, he erupted in frustration over the state of the 2016 race, saying Mr. Trump’s nomination would deeply wound the Republican Party. Mr. LePage urged the governors to draft an open letter “to the people,” disavowing Mr. Trump and his divisive brand of politics.
The suggestion was not taken up. Since then, Mr. Trump has only gotten stronger, winning two more state contests and collecting the endorsement of Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey.

How American Soldiers Used Pig’s Blood and Corpses to Fight Muslim Terrorism | Frontpage Mag
Before political correctness, our soldiers were free to fight back.
Much of what went on in that conflict, including the sacrifices of our soldiers, has been forgotten. The erasure has been so thorough that the media casually claims that the American forces did not use pig corpses and pig’s blood to deter Muslim terrorists. Media fact checks have deemed it a “legend”.
It’s not a legend. It’s history.
The practice began in the Spanish period. A source as mainstream as the New Cambridge History of Islam informs us that, "To discourage Juramentados, the Spaniards buried their corpses with dead pigs."-

Ann Coulter - February 24, 2016 - TALKING HEAD TWIT OF THE YEAR CONTEST
The cluelessness of the GOP pundit class is infuriating, but may ultimately be our salvation. Nothing they say about anything is ever right, even accidentally.
This is making the TV news shows resemble Monty Python's "Upperclass Twit of the Year" contest. The twits don't notice the starting gun, run into one another, fall down, run themselves over with
their own cars and, then, the remaining contestants all shoot themselves in the head.
Anyone who talks about politics on TV isn't going to win them all, but when your horse takes a dump in every single race, week after week, why should we listen to you next time?
If you tuned into ABC'S "This Week" the morning after Trump's tremendous victory in South Carolina, you'd find George Stephanopoulos promising analysis from a "powerhouse roundtable," by which I assume he was referring to the table itself.
He then turned to the sort of clueless morons who have gotten everything wrong for the past seven months so they could tell viewers "what's next."
I've picked these two "Republican strategists" at random for reasons of efficiency, but it could have been any of the Karl Rove-Matthew Dowd-Steve Hayes-Hugh Hewitt-George Will-Rich Lowry dream team.

Why the Bush Dynasty Fell | The American Spectator
By Jeffrey Lord – 2.23.16
|May All Dynasties Sink, They're Downright UnAmerican!|
Jeb Bush has suspended his campaign. And I will say it: Governor Bush is a good and decent man. He fought hard. In this corner I salute him and wish him well.
But if nothing else, the Jeb Bush defeat is a very big moment in the modern history of the GOP. The Fall of the House of Bush (as various headlines would have it) is precisely a reminder of the difference between Reaganites and Bushies. Or, as it were, the conservative base and the GOP Establishment. The other day, as the campaign in South Carolina was winding up, Jeb’s big brother George W. stepped to the campaign microphones, with President Bush 43 reminding audiences of President Bush 41’s saying that “labels are for soup cans.” Contrast with Ronald Reagan’s famous description of Establishment Republicans like the Bushes, with Reagan saying that the moderate GOP Establishment viewed the GOP as a “fraternal order” and a party of “pale pastels” rather than “bold colors.” Understand that key difference, and the reason for the failure of this latest Bush campaign is all too easy to understand.
I have written before about the 1980 selection by Ronald Reagan of George Herbert Walker Bush. Ed Rollins, the former Reagan White House political director who ran the Reagan re-election campaign in 1984 (which improved Reagan’s 1980 record of carrying 44 states by carrying 49 states and coming within 7,000 votes of carrying the 50th — Walter Mondale’s Minnesota), would write years later that when he heard Reagan had picked Bush for the GOP ticket he felt that conservatives had won — and then immediately surrendered the future. That the Bush selection “cut the fuse” on the Reagan Revolution because it set in motion a successor of moderate heritage.

Under federal law, the EAC is responsible for designing the federal voter-registration form required by the National Voter Registration Act, or Motor Voter, as it is commonly called. While states must register voters who use the federal form, states can ask the EAC to include instructions with the federal form about additional state registration requirements. Some states are now requiring satisfactory proof of citizenship to ensure that only citizens register to vote.
Under Article I, Secion 2 and the Seventeenth Amendment to the Constitution, states have the power to set the “Qualification requisite for electors.” As with many issues, the Left disdains the balance the

Could Someone Please Send President Obama a Necktie? | PJ Media
By Claudia Rosett February 13, 2016
In such matters as the death of a great man, respect matters -- especially from our political leaders. Dignity and sober ceremony are called for. These are not trivial requirements, nor are they mere accessories to the event. They are part of the bedrock of enlightened civilization. Surely when America's president appeared before the TV cameras Saturday evening to deliver his scripted remarks about the death of a Supreme Court Justice, the great Antonin Scalia, Obama should have taken the trouble to dress at least as well as your average law student applying for a summer job.
|"Louis Farrakhan" Obama - but not this tie|
TV commentators, in their instant reaction, focused on Obama's remarks, which combined a brief eulogy of Scalia with Obama's marker that -- suddenly interested at this late date in the Constitution -- he expects to have the pleasure of seeing the Senate confirm whomever he nominates as a replacement, rather than waiting for the next president.
But to my mind, the real statement was Obama's casual omission of a tie -- with the attendant implications of disregard for his own office, for the Supreme Court, for the American people he was addressing, and for the late Justice Scalia, who was extraordinary above all for his dedication to liberty. Which does not figure large on Obama's agenda.

I read the book in Junior High School when I also saw the movie. Both bored me. I found the tomboy Scout, who called her father by his first name, irritating. I also found Atticus boring and irritating. The trial was just another, but lesser irritation, with its obvious fairytale outcome.
The only act of real consequence by Atticus Finch was to shoot a rabid dog. Still, I will never understand why he didn't just pocket his eyeglasses, which he needed, but interfered with his sighting the rifle, instead of throwing them in the street. Dramatic action I guess, but another source of irritation.
The book leaves one big literary question: Did Truman Capote fix Harper Lee's manuscript so it could get published? m/r

The book reinforced the prejudices of the America’s elite and earned Lee eternal adulation by showing a heroic liberal lawyer, Atticus Finch, standing up to the racist, small-minded segregationist South. But last year’s release of Go Set a Watchmen, an earlier draft of To Kill a Mockingbird, tempered the adulation for Finch. As the New York Times notes in Lee’s obituary, “[M]any readers, who had grown up idolizing Atticus, were crushed by his portrayal, 20 years on, as a staunch defender of segregation.” [Harper Lee, Author of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird,’ Dies at 89, by William Grimes, February 19, 2016]

Prohibition came to pass as a result of the crusading Women's Christian Temperance

It was part of a larger movement by Progressives to end all sort of "abuses" like gambling and drug abuse. It's no wonder that the Progressives movement of today seeks to combat its pre-conceived societal ills in much the same fashion, be they the internal combustion engine, guns, or 32-oz. sodas.
But surely, you protest, we cannot devolve into anarchy, letting everyone do as they please, no law to live by, only subtle persuasion. No, we cannot. Anarchy, like totalitarianism, has been proven not to work everywhere it has been tried. So where do we draw the line between which morals to enforce with compulsion and which to enforce with
appeal? The answer, as is usually the case, rests in the first lines of our Declaration of Independence, which decree that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (also known as estate or property, if the Lockean origins of the Declaration are to be believed).
This means that my rights to do whatever I want end where the tips of my fingers touch the tip of your nose, or whatever the tips of your fingers have created. Murder, then, clearly, is an act that government has the duty to prevent. So, too, are theft, rape, and slavery. But drinking? Hardly.

WILLIAMSTOWN — The president of Williams College has ordered the cancellation of a student-organized speaking engagement by an author characterized by many as a white supremacist.
In a letter to the college community on Thursday, Adam Falk said the views espoused in the writings of John Derbyshire have no place in the school's discourse.
"We have said we wouldn't cancel speakers or prevent the expression of views except in the most extreme circumstances," Falk wrote. "In other words: There's a line somewhere, but in our history of hosting events and speeches of all kinds, we hadn't yet found it. We've found the line.
"Derbyshire, in my opinion, is on the other side of it," he wrote. "Many of his expressions clearly constitute hate speech, and we will not promote such speech on this campus or in our community."...
In an interview with The Eagle, Derbyshire said he reacted to the cancellation with "a shrug."
"The colleges today are dreadful," he said. "Nothing surprises me anymore. Hence the shrug."
He characterized Falk's statement as full of "empty phrases."

How Obama Denied Conservative Judges a Vote | Frontpage Mag
Born in segregated Alabama, Janice Rogers Brown had been a leftist like Obama before becoming conservative. When Obama rose to denounce the respected African-American jurist for her political views it had been almost a full two years since President Bush had nominated her in the summer of ’03.
Obama had arrived a few months earlier on his way to the White House and was eager to impress his left-wing backers with his political radicalism. He held forth complaining that Judge Janice Rogers Brown, who had gone to segregated schools and become the first African-American woman on the California Supreme Court, was guilty of “an unyielding belief in an unfettered free market.”
And he filibustered Judge Brown, along with other nominee, trying to deny them a vote.

Western civilization is under attack, and rational citizens are at a loss to understand why their leaders are allowing the destruction of their societies.
Much has been written about the outrageous acts that have been committed by Muslim migrants, so we need not repeat them here. We can simply agree that the situation in Europe is disastrous, and it’s getting worse. And America is not far behind.
Western leaders are aiding and abetting this insanity with a consistency and single-mindedness of purpose that can only be explained in one way: they must think they have something to gain from the chaos created by this crisis.
What other conclusion can be drawn from the brazen ascendancy of Islam in the western world, and the deafening silence that permits its success? Clearly, Western leaders think they can use Islam for their own ends, to consolidate their own power.
MILO: Twitter 'Embarking on a War Against Conservative Points of View' - Breitbart

Speaking with host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon on Breitbart News Daily, Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos discussed the suppression of conservative voices by Twitter on the social media platform.“Why are you beating up Twitter, and why are you saying that Twitter trying to suppress conservative voices, and why is Twitter’s stock in a total free fall because Milo’s taking them on?” Bannon asked. “Are you a bigger, badder guy than Jack Dorsey?”
“Yeah, of course I am,” Yiannopoulos replied mischievously. “I’m absolute convinced that Twitter is embarking on a war against conservative points of view, a war against what we might call ‘Generation Trump,’ the dissident, mischievous voices of the new counter-cultural alternative right wing and libertarian youth.”
“Look at who Twitter employs,” he warned in reference to Twitter possibly influencing the 2016 presidential election. “You know, this guy used to work with Hillary, this guy used to work with Obama…”

The Onanist's "Nobel Prize" and Islam's Coming "Night of the Long Knives" for its Faggot Brown-Shirts
Now there are the Militant PC Faggot Brown-Shirts who bully and force illegal "legal" actions agains free speech and association in much the same way. Yet they support all that is fantasy Sharia. Their support for all that is Sharia could find them one day with long knives at their throats to sever their heads because they are no longer useful homosexuals.
They even have the continuos thread of Anti-Semitism and mystical hoaxes filled with religious fervor. Then it was Aryan Gods and Myth, today it is "Global Warming." m/r
Wanted: More Warts :: SteynOnline
by Mark Steyn Steyn Down Under
Christian Kerr interviews "provocative Canadian commentator Mark Steyn" in the weekend edition of The Australian about all the fun stuff - the death of free speech, the rise of identity politics, the west's civilizational death wish and contempt for its own inheritance:
Free speech is at the heart of Steyn's message. He is surprised that the controversial section 18c of our Racial Discrimination Act is still standing when his own country successfully repealed the equivalent parts of its Human Rights Act in 2013.Indeed. It is remarkable how easily vast numbers of people now accept that truth is subordinate to the needs of ideological conformity - as we saw in Europe on New Year's Eve, when politicians, police and press colluded to cover up mass sexual assault - and, as their cover-up unraveled, millions of self-described progressives and feminists indignantly insisted that the cover-up had been the correct call.
"Free peoples are losing the habit of free speech," he says."They're taught, not really just at university but in fact from kindergarten, that there is a correct view of certain subjects and that incorrect views are distressing. The last two generations raised in the
Western world, they don't do that thing, the apocryphal Voltaire line, 'I disagree with what you say but I'll fight to the death for you to.' They'll fight to the death for you not to be allowed to say it."
The consequences can be disturbing. "People can actually lose the spirit of liberty and once you've lost that there are not a lot of easy paths back," he cautions.

PBS' Donor-Moderator Fails to Ask About Clinton Foundation
by Joel B. Pollak 11 Feb 2016
The PBS moderators at Thursday night’s Democratic debate failed to ask former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton any questions about the Clinton Foundation, despite news earlier in the day that the State Department had sent it a subpoena for documents about its activities during her tenure in office.Co-moderator Judy Woodruff happens to be a donor to the Clinton Foundation, and faced criticism from the PBS ombudsman in 2015 for giving to the Clintons.
Woodruff is one of several journalists who has contributed to the Clinton Foundation, which has been criticized as a “slush fund” for the Clintons’ own expenses, rather than on direct giving to charitable programs.

Trump warns: Migrants will bring ‘end of Europe’
Republican presidential primary front-runner Donald Trump is predicting the influx of Muslim migrants will lead to the “end of Europe” in an explosive interview with the conservative French magazine Valeurs Actuelles.
“France is not what it used to be, and neither is Paris,” Trump is quoted as saying.
Trump also bemoaned the existence of “no-go zones” avoided by police that have been created by mass Islamic immigration.
WND reported in January 2015 the French government listed 751 “Sensitive Urban Zones” the government does not fully control.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policy of welcoming Muslim migrants into Germany is a “tragic mistake,” Trump said, predicting disaster unless there is a change in policy.
“If you don’t treat the situation competently and firmly, yes, it’s the end of Europe,” Trump reportedly stated.
He also speculated that European nations could face “real revolutions” in response to the crisis.
