Lawn Signs have Become Bumper Stickers - Earth Day Has Added to the Smug Crop

The self-righteous, smug "Coexist" bumper sticker crowd has now expanded to lawn sins beyond political candidates. Although, around the northeast US, there are still plenty of "Hillary" lawn signs that pollute the grass in front of houses filled with "Election Deniers."
One of the latest crop include the "Science is Real" catchall sign that also includes "Black Lives, Women, Humans not Illegal, etc." or the overtly self-righteous "Hate has no Home Here" signs to help promote 'sanctuary cities.'
Now this is all naive, feel-good, egotism, but it reflects a superficial stupidity that can be dangerous to us all when it translates to legislation and regulation. 
Just to point out the "Science" hoax that was yesterday's "Earth Day" demonstrations and speeches, there were again more dire, earth ending predictions, if we don't mend our selfish ways.
Here are some of the laughable past dire "Earth Day" predictions compiled by the AEI. m/r:


 ... Here are 18 examples of the spectacularly wrong predictions made around 1970 when the “green holy day” (aka Earth Day) started:
1. Harvard biologist George Wald estimated that “civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.”
2. “We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation,” wrote Washington University biologist Barry Commoner in the Earth Day issue of the scholarly journal Environment.
3. The day after the first Earth Day, the New York Times editorial page warned, “Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.”
4. “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” Paul Ehrlich confidently declared in the April 1970 issue of Mademoiselle. “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
5. “Most of the people who are going to die in the greatest cataclysm in the history of man have already been born,” wrote Paul Ehrlich in a 1969 essay titled “Eco-Catastrophe! “By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.”
6. Ehrlich sketched out his most alarmist scenario for the 1970 Earth Day issue of The Progressive, assuring readers that between 1980 and 1989, some 4 billion people, including 65 million Americans, would perish in the “Great Die-Off.”
7. “It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” declared Denis Hayes, the chief organizer for Earth Day, in the Spring 1970 issue of The Living Wilderness.  ...

An 11-Year-Old Is Suing Trump for His Climate Change Skepticism

CBS News celebrated an eleven-year-old who is suing President Trump for his climate change skepticism. The kid, Avery McRae, said, "Trump is not doing anything to help stop climate change. He's a climate change denier, and we're going to prove that to — to the world." CBS felt like this was the cutest thing ever -- to possibly cost taxpayers oodles of money and perpetuate fake news. The journalist said, "Although their lawsuit may seem like a long shot, who better to fight for the future than those who will be here to see it?"

Whether O’Reilly’s comments disturb or the vast commentary on the comments disturb says something about us, namely whether we fall under the “snowflake” or “old school” category. What say you?

The New York Times kicked off the smear campaign against President Donald Trump just four weeks into his presidency.
At a Feb. 17 press conference, a reporter from an Orthodox Jewish publication told the president, “What we are concerned about and what we haven’t really heard being addressed is an uptick in anti-Semitism and how the government is planning to take care of it.”
Although the reporter did not mean to blame the president, Trump heard it that way given the attacks made against him and his campaign for the previous year or so.
“So here’s the story, folks. No. 1, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life,” said Trump. “No. 2, racism, the least racist person.”

Who Lost Turkey? (Revisited)


by Mark Steyn  Steyn on Europe  
Men and Women in Istanbul in the 1950s
As they used to say way back when in the long Ottoman twilight, the Turk is the sick man of Europe. Following this weekend's Caliph-for-Life referendum, the Turk is sicker than ever. But he's no longer of Europe, and instead is exiting for a destination dark and catastrophic for almost all his neighbors.
Sultan Erdoğan - who, a mere 15 years ago, was banned from holding political office - has now succeeded in dismantling almost every defining element of the Kemalist republic. What replaces it will be a crude strongman state in service of Islamic imperialism. I have read a lot of commentary this morning, starting with Douglas Murray's "Turkish Democracy Has Just Died" and moving on to Yavuz Baydar's "The End Of Turkey As We Know It" via Alex Alexiev's "Who Lost Turkey?" And several readers have been kind enough to inquire where's my own "Who Lost Turkey?" piece. Well, the truth is I published it exactly ten years ago, to the day of Erdoğan's referendum. From the April 16th 2007 edition of National Review, "De-Boning Turkey":
Erdoğan with Turkish girls today
The modern secular Muslim state – a country that gave women the vote before Britain did and was Israel's best friend in an otherwise hostile region – certainly, that Turkey seems to be being de-boned by the hour: it now has an Islamist government whose Prime Minister has canceled trade deals with Israel, denounced the Iraqi elections, and frosted out the US Ambassador because he was Jewish; a new edition of Mein Kampf is prominently displayed at the airport bookstore. In other words, the Zionist Entity's best pal is starting to look like just another cookie-cutter death-to-the-Great-Satan stan-of-the-month.
In fairness to the new Caliph, ever since he emerged from his semi-pro footballing career to run for Mayor of Istanbul, he's played a more cunning game than the stan-of-the-month loons. ...

Memo From Middle America | Mexican Presidential Candidate AMLO Meddling ON U.S. SOIL! Where Is Trump?

Allan Wall  April 17, 2017

Mexico has a presidential election in 2018 and right now the momentum is with Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, commonly known by his Spanish-style initials AMLO. He has a very specific platform about American immigration policy and the Mexican diaspora in the U.S. Moreover, he’s campaigning for these ideas on American soiland the Trump Administration is doing nothing about it.
AMLO is a Leftist even by Mexican standards. A determined fighter, he came in second in the 2006 and 2012 presidential elections and has a better chance to win in 2018. He has withdrawn from the major leftist party and formed a new political party (MORENAMovimiento de Regeneración Nacional) which now takes a quarter of the national vote in polls. Among presidential candidates, AMLO leads.
In a recent meeting, AMLO lectured President Trump and Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly: ...

America was Lucky to Have Irving Berlin - "God Bless America" and "Easter Parade"

Easter Parade
Steyn's Song for The Season


by Irving Berlin On the Town  
Happy Easter and Happy Passover to our readers around the world. We moved our Saturday movie night to Good Friday for Mel Gibson's blockbuster The Passion Of The Christ. So, for the weekend proper, here's a special podcast, audiophonically adapted from an essay that appears in Steyn's book A Song For The Season.
This year marks the centenary of the most famous pop hit about Easter - sort of. Irving Berlin's "Easter Parade" has its origins in a very obscure chin-up song from the Great War written in 1917. In this audio special, Mark traces its origins as a First World War morale booster to its re-emergence a generation later as the American Songbook's only Easter standard. Along the way, we'll also explore the long languished tradition of Easter parades, the meaning of the word "rotogravure", and whether anyone actually could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet. To accompany Mark on the trail of this American anthem, there are musical performers from Al Jolson and John McCormack to Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney - plus Irving Berlin himself and a young George Gershwin. And we'll also touch on a few other numbers that played a role in this song's story, from "God Bless America" and "Pack Up Your Troubles In Your Old Kit Bag" to "Hooray For Hollywood" and the haunting "Supper Time".

Eric Holder Should Be in Jail for Perjury and Contempt

Eric Holder, with the ATF, concocted an entrapment scheme to make it appear that Mexican Drug Cartels were buying massive numbers of guns through American gun shops. He was trying to entrap legal gun dealers in order to force more regulation and eventual anti-gun legislation with his phony, illegal trap. It backfired on him. ATF lost track of over 2,000 military style rifles that ended up in the hands of Mexican drug gangs. Some of these guns were used against the Border Patrol where Patrolman Brian Terry was gunned down. Eric Holder's dirty, failed entrapment scheme helped to get Brian Terry killed and Mexican gangs armed with military type weapons. m/r

The suspect, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was apprehended by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC).

A $250,000 reward had been sought for information leading to the arrest of Osorio-Arellanes, who was captured at a ranch on the border of the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua. U.S. authorities have said they will seek his extradition. ...

GOOD NEWS!!!

Fear of Trump Makes Migrants Disappear From Mexican Border

Their border-town shelter used to be full of migrants on their way to the United States. Now it stands nearly empty, thanks to America’s president.

Betsy Woodruff  04.14.17 

GET OUT AND STAY OUT!
NOGALES, Mexico—In the 35 years Gilda and Juan Francisco Loureiro have been running a shelter in northern Mexico for undocumented immigrants, they’ve never seen a week like this one.
The shelter, called Albergue San Juan Bosco, is perched on a steep hillside looking over the busy border town of Nogales, Mexico. Its walls are painted bright turquoise and tangerine, and its wide-open double doors look west over low hills and Highway 15. Since they opened it, upward of 1 million people have slept there on their way to the U.S. But on the day I visited, it was almost empty.
It didn’t used to be this way, Gilda and Juan Francisco, known as Paco, explained. In the decades since they opened the space to give migrants a place to shower and sleep before crossing the border, the shelter—with separate rooms full of bunkbeds for men and women—would regularly house 100 migrants per night. Sometimes, that number would hit 300 or more, and Gilda and Paco would pull out thin mattresses to fit everyone on the floor.
But today, those mattresses are neatly stacked in a closet, untouched. ...

US drops largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan after Green Beret killed

by   Published April 13, 2017

The U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday just days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS there, a U.S. defense official confirmed to Fox News.
The GBU-43B, a 21,000-pound conventional bomb, was dropped on an ISIS tunnel complex in Nangarhar Province.
The MAOB -- Massive Ordinance Air Blast -- is also known as the “Mother Of All bombs.” It was first tested in 2003, but hadn't been used before Thursday.
"As [ISIS'] losses have mounted, they are using IEDs, bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense," Gen. John Nicholson, Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, said in a statement. "This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against [ISIS]."

For comparison, each Tomahawk cruise missile launched at Syria last week was 1,000-pounds each.

How I Hate To Fly Now-a-Days - Airlines, as many Big Gov't Loving Big Companies, Don't Understand Market Forces

The Major Airlines have been in Economic Fascist Partnership with the Federal Government for decades. The sad result, they start acting like political fascists. m/r
George Neumayr  April 12, 2017

Few experiences capture the awfulness of life in post-Christian America more vividly than a trip to the airport. It is a toss-up as to who behaves worse: the sandals-wearing passengers or the surly crew.
The classlessness of the airlines industry is breathtaking and has now culminated in the beating and dragging of a paying customer who dared to resist its “overbooking” schemes. One can only cheer the plummeting stock price of United Airlines — a biblically fitting punishment for its smallness and greed.
For the sake of saving thousands, it has lost millions. This is a Tiananmen Square moment for the airlines industry, with David Dao as Tank Man. Of course, those whom the media gods would destroy, they first make famous. Now we are seeing reports on Dao’s squalid and difficult past. But who cares? He was still mistreated, as even the corporate weasels at United Airlines now admit.

United CEO Oscar Munoz has called the episode “horrific” and pledged to “fix what’s broken so this never happens again.” But his first instinct was to blame the customer and pander to his employees.

Clemson U. Training Says Tardiness Is 'Cultural' and Must Be Tolerated


"Islam is king on a field of corpses."

Last week, Trump did something fundamental for schoolboys and new prison inmates who need to make it known that they will fight back if anyone crosses them. This establishes survival. In school or prison, it is a fundamental article of survival to stand up to the bully in order to get respect. Win or lose. Standing up and striking a blow is, as the saying goes, the best defense is a good offense. Arabs and the Muslim world understand it, so does the Orient, as do the Russians. There exists something more fundamentally attached to our animal past across Asia than there is in the Occidental World. m/r
More tellingly freighted, the toll of the dead in Stockholm numbered Maïlys Dereymaeker, the young mother of an 18-month-old baby. She'd worked as a psychologist at several Belgian migrant centers helping "refugees" whose asylum bids had been turned down. Her killer could have used her assistance: Rakhmat Akilov had had his application for Swedish asylum rejected last year, but the authorities couldn't be bothered to rouse themselves to deport him. She was, in a certain sense, on his side. But he killed her anyway, because that's not how he saw it.

The Incoming Roar

by Mark Steyn  Steyn on the World   

Last week was a fairly typical one in 21st century headlines:
~On Monday, 14 victims were killed in an Islamic terrorist attack on the St Petersburg Metro;
~On Friday, four victims were killed in an Islamic terrorist attack by a homicidal truck driver on Queen Street in Stockholm;
~On Palm Sunday, at least 45 victims were killed in an Islamic terrorist attack on two Coptic churches in Egypt.
In other news, the United States bombed Syria after a chemical-weapons attack, and UK, Canadian and other newspapers reported on the treatment a Berlin schoolboy received after revealing to his Muslim classmates that he's Jewish. Meanwhile, Giulio Meotti wrote for the Gatestone Institute on the closure of 500 churches in London, and the opening of 423 mosques.
The US bombing raid got the most headlines - because, after eight years of Obama, it was unusual.

The Rotten Obama Record -- and Legacy

By David Prentice April 10, 2017


There is an excellent cartoon showing a circle of people surrounding Barack Obama, guarding him, preventing anyone from bringing him harm.  An observer asks if those people are the Secret Service.  The answer:  No, that’s the media.
I don’t think there is a better portrayal of the Obama legacy.  This cartoon succinctly communicates how this man gained office, kept it, and remained popular.  The Obama phenomenon had a complex side, but the most complex and nefarious part was the unwillingness of the mainstream media to criticize, or bring up any hint of wrongdoing on his part.  From the beginning, our media created an image for him, never actually delving into his background, his beliefs, or his life in any way.  Unlike the quest to find out Trump’s tax returns, the media never sought to reveal who or what Obama was.
After Obama’s election, it was Chris Matthews who infamously said, “My Job Is to Make the Obama Presidency a Success” continuing with, “This country needs a successful presidency.”  The entire left-leaning media clearly took that construct as its main job for Obama.  They reported everything as positive.  If there was something negative, or heaven forbid WRONG, it often was ignored, lied about or spun hard to make it look like nothing was there.  Great examples are the horror of Obamacare, the lies about Benghazi, and the falsehoods about the “wonderful” Iran deal.
There is a very dark underbelly to this fawning:  Obama himself.  Here was a radical leftist who had accomplished nothing in his entire life.

Susan Rice Touted 'Success' in Syria as Recently as January

by Debra Heine April 7, 2017

Dubious claims made by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and other members of the Obama administration regarding Syria have attracted jeers and catcalls from conservatives following this week's sarin gas attack. Contrary to their repeated assertions, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad did not destroy his chemical weapons stockpile, in violation of the Obama administration's much-touted chemical weapons deal of 2013.
“There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention, and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council,” President Trump said.
Video footage from the chemical attack scene immediately raised credibility problems for claims made by members of the Obama administration that the prior agreement had rid the war-torn country of chemical agents.
During an interview this past January with National Public Radio, former National Security Adviser Rice touted the “success” in Syria, in striking a deal with Russia's help that resulted in the prior administration dropping the threat of military action.
“We were able to find a solution that didn’t necessitate the use of force that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria, in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished,” she boasted. “We were able to get the Syrian government to voluntarily and verifiably give up its chemical weapons stockpile.”

Winston Churchill summed up the matter as follows:  “Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities—but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”

A 1,389 Year-Old ‘Phobia’?


Why history is one of the best antidotes to Muslim apologetics.


  A direct correlation exists between Western ignorance of history and Western ignorance of Islam’s “troublesome” doctrines.  It is this connection that allows Islam’s apologists to get away with so many distortions and outright lies meant to shield Islam.
Take, for instance, Reza Aslan, apparently CNN’s resident “cannibal”: he recently claimed that “Islamophobia”— defined by CAIR as “unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam”—was created by a few “clowns” in 2014.
To be sure, Western fear of Islam is something of a recent phenomenon in modern times.  Because the world was a much bigger place a few decades ago, and Islam was oceans away, the average American hardly knew anything about Muhammad’s creed.  However, as the world has become smaller—as Muslims have grown in numbers in Western societies, as modern technology has made it possible for the weaker to terrorize the stronger, and then broadcast it for the world to see (Internet)—so has the Western world been hearing, seeing, and experiencing more and more of Islam.

But Aslan’s lament is not that, although people were once ignorant they are now wise to Islam.  Rather, he accuses a number of writers and activists—the aforementioned “clowns”—of manufacturing a menacing image of Islam, which, in turn, has prompted Western people to develop an “unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam”—or, in a word, “Islamophobia.”

Time For Some Black Truth that Matters

Black Lives Matter mob shuts down Blue Lives Matter speaker at Claremont McKenna College

Posted by    Saturday, April 8, 2017 

Heather Mac Donald targeted by crazed protesters, while her UCLA appearance also disrupted.


Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has been one of the leading voices defending law enforcement officers in the age of Black Lives Matter, particularly by showing that much of the rhetoric about police shootings is statistically inaccurate or misleading.
Mac Donald’s willingness to take on the foundations of the Black Lives Matter movement has earned her the ire of the movement.

Mac Donald was supposed to give a speech at Claremont McKenna College but student supporters of Black Lives Matter went nuts. In a way, it was like a repeat of what happened at Middlebury College to Charles Murray.

Seething Mob Shuts Down Speech by Pro-Cop Writer Heather Mac Donald as Event Turns Violent

By Emily Zanotti |  April 8, 2017

Black Lives Matter activists had planned the protest ahead of time, posting on Facebook that they intended to shut down the “anti-black” “fascist” Mac Donald. Their event called Mac Donald’s work “fascist ideologies and blatant anti-Blackness and white supremacy,” and claimed that “together, we can hold CMC accountable and prevent Mac Donald from spewing her racist, anti-Black, capitalist, imperialist, fascist agenda.”
Mac Donald’s book, released amidst heightened tensions between the black community and the police, argues that better community policing, and familiarity with neighborhoods could reduce crime. She suggests that law enforcement officials actually believe that “black lives matter” more than activists do, and that the narrative that police are “racist” is making minority communities less safe.

Action vs. Inaction

Bad actors had grown accustomed to having a free rein without any fear of the weak Obama. Now, they are guessing, checking and, of course, complaining. Russia, Syria, Iran, ISIS, Iraq and North Korea had all become unreasonable. Therefore an unpredictable surprise and powerful act was required to get their attention. m/r


A Strike in Syria Restores Our Credibility in the World

After President Bashar al-Assad of Syria once again attacked his own citizens with poison gas, the civilized world recoiled in horror at images of children writhing in pain and suffocating to death. President Trump voiced this justified outrage at a news conference on Wednesday, and the next day he took swift, decisive action against the outlaw Assad regime. But these strikes did more than simply punish Mr. Assad and deter future attacks; they have gone a long way to restoring our badly damaged credibility in the world.
It’s hard to overstate just how low the standing of the United States had fallen because of President Barack Obama’s failure to enforce his own “red line” against Mr. Assad’s use of chemical weapons in 2013. I was one of the few Republican members of Congress who supported strikes against Syria then. Because of that, I’ve heard from dozens of world leaders expressing their doubts about the security commitments of the United States.
These doubts originated from surprising places. Of course our longtime Arab allies expressed their misgivings. Yet European and even Asian leaders have privately wondered to me whether the red-line fiasco called into question America’s security alliances in their regions. While far removed from the Middle East, they still depend on the United States and the threat of force to defend our mutual interests.
It wasn’t only Mr. Obama’s refusal to act in the moment that undermined our credibility. The fig leaf to justify inaction was an agreement with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia to remove Syria’s chemical weapons, which Russia and Syria plainly violated from the outset. Yet Obama administration officials continued to celebrate it as a triumph.
It’s also worth remembering that Mr. Obama backed down partly because he so badly wanted a nuclear deal with Mr. Assad’s patron, Iran. ...
