@IBTimes’s deceitful photo choice

Even though the story about a gay concentration camp in Chechnya has less than nothing to do with Christians, International Business Times has chosen to use a photo that implicates them.

If you look closely at the photo, you can see that the signs include Christian scriptures, even though the article does mention – in the last paragraph and, really, how many people read that far – that Chechnya is a majority Muslim country that adheres to traditional Islamic values.

The photo doesn’t appear within the body of the article; rather it appears as the default when the story is linked and shows up in a Bing search.

Unless they want to claim stupidity, there’s no innocent explanation for this.

The many lies of Susan Rice

A simple error or more of the same from the Liar of Benghazi?

susan rice 1

First there was the Benghazi lie, in which she appeared on five Sunday morning news shows to tell the American people that the attack was motivated by a YouTube video.

The Bowe Bergdahl lie, in which she assured us that the U.S. Army deserter had served with honor and distinction.

The Turkish airbase lie, in which she stated that the Turkish government had agreed to allow their airbases to be used for operations against Syria and Iran.

The unmasking lie, in which she first claimed she didn’t know anything at all about it, and then, after it was revealed that she had, indeed, requested the unmasking, stated, in a stunning display of grammatical malfeasance, that she “leaked nothing to nobody.” We’re still waiting to see if that last bit is a lie or not.

And now, in the face of Syria’s recent gas attack on their own citizen’s, we have the chemical weapons lie, in which she said as recently as January that Assad had “voluntarily and verifiably” relinquished all the country’s chemical weapons.

What did I miss?

Why do people continue to believe anything this woman has to say? If she said the sky was blue, I’d go outside to make certain it wasn’t green. And for the love of God, who at the Washington Post thought this professional liar was qualified to write an op-ed on presidential truthfulness?

Charles Woods, whose son, Tyrone Woods, was killed in Benghazi, suggested recently that perhaps Rice should take a lie detector test. He might be onto something there. Although I’m not entirely certain she couldn’t fool the machine.

Susan Rice has no acquaintance with the truth and people who believe that she’ll ever tell the whole truth about the unmasking incident are – how can I say this nicely – delusional.

Nevertheless…

I’ve written some not-very-complimentary things about Mitch McConnell, but when it came down to this Supreme Court nomination, he got the job done.

Culture War Backfire: Polls Show Left Losing Gender Debate to More Traditional Millennials

From the Aussie Conservative blog.

Aussie Conservative Blog

There is some good news amid an apparently changed cultural context, as despite extreme feminism and other Leftist causes being prevalent in public life, these ideas are becoming increasingly unpopular amongst the bulk of society.

Clearly, the voices who shout the loudest and make themselves the most visible, are not always those who enjoy overwhelming support.

While we should be proud that conservatives are more modest and pleasant in this regard, such an environment should serve as reason for an emboldened, re- energized populist backlash, to ensure that further ground is not lost on key social issues.

Because as Hitler’s Germany proved, wicked ideas do not require predominance in a society, for great acts of evil to subsequently occur.

Daily Wire, by John Nolte, April 3, 2017:

Last week I wrote about why I am not buying into the conventional wisdom that the Left is winning the culture wars. This is objectively true on the issues of guns…

The Democrats’ #1 political strategy

Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell

Me: Maria, why so sad? Maria: The GOP just killed millions of women.

If Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell actually believe the things they tweet, they may be the stupidest people around, lacking sufficient intellectual depth to understand any topic at more than a surface level.

And that’s if I’m being nice.

The other possibility is that they’re shameless partisan hacks*, mindlessly spouting off leftist talking points regardless of the truth. In other words, they’re liars.

For example, last Thursday, the Senate voted on whether or not to allow states, at the discretion of their own legislatures, to withhold Title X funds from family planning clinics that provide abortions. Basically, the vote allows states to choose not to use that federal money to fund Planned Parenthood. That’s it. That’s all the vote authorized. Not a single thing else.

Federalism is good, right?

Not according to Murray and Cantwell, who apparently don’t trust states to make the “right” decision. You know, the decision that agrees with them. So they were going on about the Title X vote as though every woman in America has suddenly been cut off from access to any health care whatsoever. Or as Patty Murray says…ZOMG, Women will die and Mike Pence is the devil!

Let me state this as clearly as I can. If Planned Parenthood values providing other kinds of services more than they value providing abortions, they can simply stop doing abortions and reduce the risk of losing Title X funds to zero. But they won’t, which makes it seem as though Planned Parenthood is unnaturally attached to providing a service which makes up, as they claim, only 3% of their business.

If last week’s vote accomplishes nothing other than to allow the states to disburse Title X funds, why, then, are Democrats so determined to mislead the public about it?

I recently wrote, “Democrats…repeat lies until they’re ground into the public consciousness and internalized as truth.” Democrats know that defunding Planned Parenthood is a winning issue for the GOP; therefore they must lie to try to steal the win. That they lie in ways specifically calculated to instill fear in women is particularly contemptible, because it illustrates their misogynistic belief that women are politically naive and easily manipulated. This is the basis for the entire “Republican war on women” story line.

Fear is a powerful motivator. Powerful enough to cause otherwise rational and intelligent women to march for rights they already have. Fearmongering. It’s the Democrats’ #1 strategy and it’s disgusting.

Hey, call me crazy

Yep, call me crazy, but I’d prefer a justice who always stands up for the law. If the law is sometimes at odds with the individual, and it seems like an injustice, don’t blame the the courts; blame the lawmakers for writing shoddy legislation. Unintended consequences can be a bitch.2017-03-31 (6).png

Update: In which Maria Cantwell admits she knew nothing about Neil Gorsuch’s judicial philosophy in 2006, but voted for him anyway. I’m glad she’s on the job, voting for stuff she doesn’t know anything about.
