Fourth Circuit Bobos Put Judiciary On Collision Course With AmericaBy Adam Candeub on May 25, 2017, 9:05 pm

I nearly drove off the road today when I heard that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit issued a 10 [Democrat[-3 [Republican] decision basically blocking President Trump’s revised travel ban—and I’m a law professor: I’m not easily shocked by federal judges [ Federal appeals court maintains freeze of Trump’s travel ban. Attorney general vows Supreme Court appeal, by Ann E, Marimow and Robert Barnes, Washington Post, May 25, 2017]. This is an extraordinary assertion of judicial supremacy over the Executive and Legislative branches’ right to make immigration policy. Not surprisingly, the reaction is intense—and ominous e.g. Why Trump has a responsibility to ignore the Fourth Circuit, by Daniel Horowitz, Conservative Review, May 25, 2017.
But in a larger sense, this development is not surprising. It’s the culmination a phenomenon Charles Murray documented in his book Coming Apart—our professional, business, and educational elites have isolated themselves from the rest of American and, in particular, the working class for whom they have growing contempt.
New York Times columnist David Brooks, [Email him]in his satirical Bobos in Paradise, to which Murray alludes repeatedly, described how our new elites’ identities rest upon meritocratic achievement and cultural self-expression rather than attachment to traditional American culture. The code that binds our new elites together requires its member to be “non-judgmental” and “culturally open, “shunning the narrow and parochial impression that professions of patriotism can give.

Ann Coulter: Rome Burns–Nero Worries About PyrophobiaBy Ann Coulter on May 24, 2017, 7:18 pm
The latest Muslim terrorist attack ripped apart little girls at a concert in Manchester, England, on Monday, killing 22. The death and body-part count is still rising.
This is not a game. When young British girls are the targets of a suicide bombing, can we take a short break from the posturing, political correctness and Russia conspiracy theorizing? Won't the hatred of Trump keep for a few weeks?
Channel-surfing on Monday night was like watching broadcasts from different countries. While Fox News and CNN covered the terrorist attack, MSNBC concentrated on the real news of the night—TRUMP'S COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA—as children screamed in the background in footage from Manchester.
It was a big enough step for MSNBC to stop claiming that the "explosion" was just popping balloons. The hosts reasoned, We know that Islam is a religion of peace, so what else could it be?
CBS and NBC News finally produced the name of the suicide bomber—the next day. (After any terrorist attack, the media like to keep us in suspense for as long as possible about whether it was a Muslim or a Christian.)
Even then, the answer was difficult to find on either network's Twitter feeds, which were bristling with minute-by-minute updates on former CIA Director John Brennan's congressional testimony about Russia and Trump: Yes, collusion was investigated. No, Brennan is not aware of any evidence to support the theory. BREAKING NEWS! Read more >>
The Fulford File: “The Frito Bandito Prize”–Reverse Assimilation And The Case Of Edward RoybalBy James Fulford on May 23, 2017, 11:05 pm
There are a lot of buildings named after Edward Roybal in LA.
I saw this long-forgotten PC flap in a 1980 Playboy magazine. (1980s magazines are a fertile source of historical trivia, but my original intention was just to look at the pictures):
Representative Charles Bennett was asked what he thought about the charge that a colleague, Representative Edward Roybal, was reprimanded for accepting money from Korean interests only because he was Hispanic. Bennett said he didn't even know Roybal was Hispanic until the House debate. "It was hard for me to believe that he was a Mexican." Bennett said. "I thought Mexicans were short with mustaches."
THE FRITO BANDITO PRIZE , March 1980, p. 26
Both Congressmen were Democrats, although Bennett was a conservative Democrat, a species also long-forgotten.
Roybal, born in 1916, was a New Mexican by birth, who moved from there to Los Angeles as a child. Wikipedia says of him that he was born "to a Hispanic family that traced its roots in Albuquerque, New Mexico back hundreds of years, to the Roybals who settled the area before the founding of Santa Fe".

Yes, Virginia (Dare) There Is A Cultural Marxism–And It’s Taking Over Conservatism Inc.By Paul Gottfried on May 22, 2017, 9:10 pm
The most recent of incident of Cultural Marxist commissars refusing to admit that dissidents are to be treated as fellow citizens is the crazed female professor who accosted the NPI's Richard Spencer while he was exercising at a Alexandria gym. She, recognizing him from coverage of the election campaign, started haranguing him and calling him a “Nazi.”
Instead of having her ejected for this behavior, the gym’s management terminated Spencer’s membership. [ Georgetown professor confronts white nationalist Richard Spencer at the gym — which terminates his membership , By Faiz Siddiqui May 21, 2017]
Back in 2011 VDARE posted a commentary of mine on the legitimacy of the “Cultural Marxist” concept. (I reluctantly accepted the term only because I couldn’t think of a better one.)
As I pointed out, this ideology was very far from orthodox Marxism and was viewed by serious Marxists as a kind of bastard child. Yet many of those designated as “Cultural Marxists” still viewed themselves as classical Marxists and some still do.
Exponents of what the Frankfurt School called “critical theory”—like Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, and Erich Fromm—were considered by orthodox Marxists to be fake or ersatz Marxists. But they did adopt orthodox Marxist-Leninist theory in key aspects: Read more >>
