    In keeping with my self-imposed rule of assuming that every media-hyped hate-crime story that barrels down the pike is “False Until Proven True,” I assumed that the grossly implausible anti-gay, anti-black, pro-Trump late-night attack in subzero Chicago temperatures involving actor and singer Jussie Smollett—which featured the added hyperbolic embellishments of bleach, a noose, and two presumably white attackers shouting “This is MAGA country” in the least-MAGA part of the country—was a steaming pile of happy horseshit. Writing this 18 days after the alleged attack occurred at 2AM on January 29—because everyone knows that feral white rednecks roam “ritzy” Chicago neighborhoods...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) expressed excitement that her anti-Semitic tweets “have sparked a desperately needed discussion and debate over the nefarious Zionist conspiracy to take over the world. Muslims have been fighting to exterminate these vermin ever since Mohammed warned us about them fourteen hundred years ago. I’m glad I can use the platform awarded to me by my election to Congress to reach a wider audience.” “There are a hundred times as many Muslims as there are Jews,” Omar pointed out. “If we believe in democracy shouldn’t the wishes of the super-majority outweigh the wishes of the tiny minority?...
  • Forget EVs, Detroit's Big 3 Battle For Heavy-Duty Truck Segment

    The Detroit 3 are in a heated battle to take the lead in a highly-profitable segment: heavy-duty pickups. The days of striving to take the lead in selling the market’s most fuel-efficient pickup truck, along with high-mileage cars and electrified vehicles, has been set aside by General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler. Today the race is on for selling heavy-duty pickups capable of serving construction companies, agri-business, and commercial fleets.
  • Was Kamala Harris part of the Jussie Smollett hoax?

    After garnering a host of press attention for a supposed anti-black, anti-gay attack from supposed random supporters of President Trump, involving a noose, Hollywood actor Jussie Smollett looks pretty washed up now that a couple of Nigerians have been implicated by the Chicago cops in the perpetration of a hoax, supposedly to garner sympathy. But another Hollywood guy, a film producer named Tariq Nasheed, who also goes by hip-hop rapper-like names of "K-Flex" and "King Flex," thinks this isn't the end of the story. He smells a political rat. His series of tweets raises suspicions that the political response to...

    VIDEO Fading Aussie actor, Ben Esler, whom I never heard of until today, attacked your humble correspondent for an article he wrote in Newsbusters about the Jussie Smollett hate hoax. As you will see his attack is chock full of liberal by-the-numbers virtue signalling. Just to show there are no hard feelings, ol' PJ performs the ultimate act of kindness at the end of this video by attesting that Mr. Esler is indeed a liberal in good standing and thus deserving of more important acting roles than he has gotten in the past few years during his long sad fade...
  • Stop the online conspiracy theorists before they break democracy

    02/18/2019 9:32:20 AM PST · by MNDude · 35 replies
    Across Europe, conspiracy theories that mix old antisemitic tropes with new ones that demonise migrants and Muslims have gained huge traction since the refugee crisis in 2015. A recent study showed that a stunning 60% of Brits believe in at least one conspiracy theory. The ideas that a cabal of global elites run the world, that there is a plot to replace white English natives with Muslim migrants and that the authorities are covering up immigration numbers are among the most commonly held. In QAnon forums, it is hard to overlook the holy mess of logical fallacies and contradictions. Its...

    ...snip..... Multiple defendants admit they have hired the Georgia Speaker knowing he would keep their cases from ever going to trial. They could outlast the memories of their victims. No judge is going to force the Speaker to go to trial. Georgia Republicans are enabling this and letting it happen. By keeping David Ralston as Speaker, they are preventing justice from happening. They are preventing rape victims from getting closure. They are preventing repeat abusers from ever having to face a jury for their crimes. This is not a right versus left issue. This is not a Republican versus Democrat...

    McCarrick Laicization a Political Bone Throw? Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganň, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United states, has publicly expressed his misgivings about the upcoming Vatican summit on clerical sexual-abuse this February 21-25. In a brief essay issued in response to an invitation to participate in a National Catholic Register symposium on the upcoming summit, he says, “I am praying intensely for the success of the February summit” but laments that there is “no sign of a genuine willingness to attend to the real causes of the present situation.” Viganň presents three critical questions, wherein he manifests his doubt...

    In committing national economic suicide and sending living standards back to 19th century Twenty-nine-year-old ex-bartender and freshman U.S. Representative (D-NY) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez received thunderous environmentalist and media acclaim when she introduced her Green New Deal resolution in the House and Ed Markey (D-MA) submitted it in the Senate. It was quickly endorsed or cosponsored by scores of House and Senate Dems, including many who want to run against President Trump in 2020. But within days the GND was subjected to rigorous analysis (and ridicule) by energy experts, President Trump, Republicans, conservative pundits and even some Democrats. Their disdain is well-founded.

    The Green New Deal is like its predecessor, Occupy Wall Street. It came on the scene with a flash, then eventually faded away like it never existed If Donald Trump was a Putin puppet, they wouldn’t hold that information back (magically without leaks) for two years while Russia was supposedly taking over America through a traitor in the White House. If that were the case, the ones supposedly saving us from this “takeover” are doing one heckuva job, aren’t they? Wouldn’t they be going after the puppet instead of going after the puppeteer and cutting the strings they’ve attached to...

    Open letter to Governors, Attorneys General, the Legislators of these United States and the People along with their Sheriffs and Peace Officers From KrisAnne Hall, JD Both Washington State Governor Jay Inslee and Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson have issued letters regarding the State of Washington’s Initiative 1639 and Washington law enforcement officials’ refusal to enforce the measure in part or in total. Similar laws are being passed by legislators and signed into law by the governors of other States, sadly with little protest. Proponents of Washington’s Initiative 1639 and those critical of the law enforcement officials cite a “duty...

    USA Today reports a wave of protests have been planned from New York to California and Texas to oppose the president’s national emergency declaration. Seriously, is there any organization more misnomered than MoveOn.org?  Founded in 1998 to protest Bill Clinton’s impeachment at the hands of the evil Republicans, they’ve never gotten over it, never moved on. They exist to protest, and they decide when and what you will protest. Sadly, this protest was cancelled, due to the government not being shut down on January 29th, 2019They are much better funded now (shoutout to George Soros!) and can afford to...

    It’s hard to imagine how one would go about watching the Iditarod in person. The iconic route stretches more than 1,100 miles from Anchorage to Nome, and the race can last for weeks. The record for fastest winning time, set in 2017, stands at 8 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes and 13 seconds; the slowest winning time, in 1974, was nearly 21 days. Logistically, it isn’t a spectator sport. But for those of you yearning for that sweet, sweet Venn diagram of outdoors, winter, ice and snow, and sled dogs, the Iditarod offers something infinitely more exciting and more hands-on...

    Jussie Smollett’s sisters, actresses and activists, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Jazz Smollett-Warwell, worked as leading campaign surrogates for former President Barack Obama, and less than a year ago, videos of Jussie dancing with Michelle Obama went viral. Jussie Smollett’s “hate crime” story that he was attacked by two men who shouted racial and homophobic slurs at him along with the phrase “This is MAGA country”, on Jan. 29, seems to be falling apart. According to his account, a strange chemical was thrown upon him and a rope was put around his neck. . “Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the...

    This Colorado man fought an Attacking Mountain Lion with his bare hands (Foot) and survived! The 31-year-old runner told reporters that he ran up a nature trail earlier this month near Fort Collins and made his way to the top to take in the sights. But on his way down, he said, he ran into some ice on the trail, so he took a detour and hopped on West Ridge Trail at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, a 2,700-acre park known for its hiking, biking and horseback riding trails. Moments later, he said, he heard pine needles rustle behind him. Then...

    I’m publicly asking the Washington Post to please either confirm of debunk PJ Media’s “evidence” that Ilhan Omar married her brother in order to commit immigration fraud PJ Media is a right wing website. It’s not considered to be part of the mainstream media, and you certainly can’t cite it as a source when adding content to wikipedia.That being said, I am a long term reader of PJ Media, and I tend to view most of what it publishes as being credible. I certainly don’t have anything against the website.PJ Media has published what it claims are photographs, school records, and...
