Is An Age Of Neeras And Humas Upon Us?

The late poet Dylan Thomas had a habit of urinating on the rugs of those unwise enough to invite him to their country homes. Naturally, this brings to mind Neera Tanden.

For those not already enjoying the WikiLeaks view into the catty hell that is the Clinton campaign, Tanden is the advisor who laments the presence of “White Boys” on team Clinton. But let’s let her speak for herself via WikiLeaks.
"I'm not the diversity police but there is grumbling on the 4 white boys running next presidential cycle. So I recommend rolling out some people who look like the rest of America soon!" she urges Podesta on Jan. 14, 2015. [WikiLeaks Podesta Emails 6144, January 17, 2014]

"Really, don't you think I know that?" he responds.

"Yeah I know you know it. But in case people feel intimidated in making direct comments to Hillaryland, I thought I'd let you know of the grumbling I'm hearing directly. But maybe that was my mistake," Tanden replies. [ John Podesta Asked Hillary Clinton to Court 'Needy Latinos' in WikiLeaks, By David Catanese,, October 12, 2016]

Ms. Tanden Isn’t fond of white men but she has been connected to one white woman since 1996—Hilary Clinton. Why all the antipathy? Read more >>

An Establishment in Panic–What If AMERICANS Don’t Accept “Rigged” Election Results?

Pressed by moderator Chris Wallace as to whether he would accept defeat should Hillary Clinton win the election, Donald Trump replied, "I will tell you at the time. I'll keep you in suspense."

"That's horrifying," said Clinton, setting off a chain reaction on the post-debate panels with talking heads falling all over one another in purple-faced anger, outrage and disbelief.

"Disqualifying!" was the cry on Clinton cable.

"Trump Won't Say If He Will Accept Election Results," wailed The New York Times. "Trump Won't Vow to Honor Results," ran the banner in The Washington Post.

But what do these chattering classes and establishment bulletin boards think the Donald is going to do if he falls short of 270 electoral votes?

Lead a Coxey's Army on Washington and burn it down as British General Robert Ross did in August 1814, while "Little Jemmy" Madison fled on horseback out the Brookville Road?

What explains the hysteria of the establishment?

In a word, fear.

The establishment is horrified at the Donald's defiance because, deep within its soul, it fears that the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority.

It may rule and run the country, and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment, disconnected from the people it rules, senses, rightly, that it is unloved and even detested.

federalistHaving fixed the future, the establishment finds half of the country looking upon it with the same sullen contempt that our Founding Fathers came to look upon the overlords Parliament sent to rule them.

Establishment panic is traceable to another fear: Its ideology, its political religion, is seen by growing millions as a golden calf, a 20th-century god that has failed.

Trump is "talking down our democracy," said a shocked Clinton.

After having expunged Christianity from our public life and public square, our establishment installed "democracy" as the new deity, at whose altars we should all worship. And so our schools began to teach.

Half a millennia ago, missionaries and explorers set sail from Spain, England and France to bring Christianity to the New World. Read more >>

Trump’s Long Path To The White House Based On Patriotism, Not Power

At the 1988 Republican National Convention Larry King asked Trump: “Are you a Bush Republican?” "No."

At the 1988 Republican National Convention Larry King asked Trump: “Are you a Bush Republican?” "No."’s John Derbyshire plucked a striking passage—a philosophical and personal highlight—from Donald Trump’s speech in Florida last Thursday, October 13:
This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization itself. I didn’t need to do this, folks, believe me—believe me. I built a great company, and I had a wonderful life. I could have enjoyed the fruits and benefits of years of successful business deals and businesses for myself and my family. Instead of going through this absolute horror show of lies, deceptions, malicious attacks—who would have thought?

I’m doing it because this country has given me so much, and I feel so strongly that it’s my turn to give back to the country that I love.

(That nugget starts at 34:20 into the video of the speech; the full transcript is at this link.) Read more >>

The Debate: Hillary Has The Media, But Trump Has The Issues

Say, does anyone remember when Trump was the lightweight with no "policy specifics"? I have an entire chapter in my book, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, quoting media savants complaining about Trump's lack of "policy specifics," interspersed, by date, with his major policy speeches and papers.

At this point, the only "policy specific" Trump hasn't given us is which company will supply rebar for the wall.

But now, the media's entire campaign against Trump is to prevent him from talking about policy. They would rather talk about fat-shaming than trade, immigration and jobs.

Sometimes, it seems like Trump is cheating by taking the vastly more popular side of every issue.

The official GOP used to send its candidates out with ankle weights, a 75-pound backpack and blinders. But Trump didn't agree to take any staggeringly unpopular positions, however much the Business Roundtable loved them.

He's against amnesty, for building a wall, against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, for Social Security, against the Iraq War and for extreme vetting of Muslim immigrants.

That's why the media have to change the subject to something flashy that will capture the attention of the most down-market, easily fooled voters. Trump is a groper!

The media's interest in sex scandals goes back and forth, depending on their needs at the moment. When the last name of the perp is "Kennedy" or "Clinton," they're not interested. When it's "the Duke lacrosse team": Guilty. Read more >>

Take The Debates Away From The Lying Press–They Do Take A Side. Period!

How many more broadcast bust-ups will it take before America finally decides to make its presidential election debates tolerable again? I can't take it anymore. Can you?

For the past three cycles—2008, 2012, and 2016—I've chronicled the depressing, systemic bias of left-leaning partisans whom the Commission on Presidential Debates routinely installs Read more >>

America’s “White Gun Culture” Isn’t Killing Blacks—Other Blacks Are



In the U.K.  Spectator, American freelance hack  Eric Weinberger (Email him)reviews Another Day In The Death Of America, a book about America’s “gun culture”, written by Gary Younge, a black UK.  Guardian writer who was born in the U.K. to Jamaican parents. It's based on an investigation of 10 deaths that happened in one fairly average day in the  U.S. in 2013. Younge traveled across America and interviewed relatives, funeral directors etc., many of whom couldn’t understand his British accent. Weinberger writes (emphases added):
He’s black, foreign, reporting for a liberal newspaper — surely he’s anti-gun, wary of law enforcement, an apologist for urban pathologies that ignore the primacy of ‘personal responsibility’, and so on. Indeed, he may be those things — none is bad! — but all of it is muted before the journalistic imperative to describe the daily hideous consequences of American gun culture, the thing ‘most foreigners find hardest to understand’.

But most Americans don’t understand it, either, because in our segregated country people of different ethnic and racial backgrounds don’t live and struggle in the same communities in the same ways. Even though white gun culture is the most significant component of American violence, only one of these ten boys — they are all male — is white, from rural Michigan where, like all hunting states, guns proliferate, resulting in many homicides including what seems, in the case of Tyler Dunn (age 11), an accident at the hands of another kid.
