The “Equality” Blues: Feminists Cry Foul When Boys’ Netball Team Wins Girls’ Tournament

We’d hear about how there weren’t enough women on corporate boards, but not how there weren’t enough female garbage collectors; there’d be complaints about how actresses didn’t earn as much as actors, but not about how female fashions models command far more income than their male counterparts. It was never about equality. It was always about power and prestige.

Lost in Space: Kamala Gets Repackaged And Then Rejected — Again?

But now, perhaps, she’s not even being taken seriously by the White House. Despite having been appointed in March to be Biden’s “border czar,” Harris was conspicuously absent from high-level border-security talks on Friday between upper-echelon administration figures and Mexican officials. This prompted Showalter to ask, “Has the White House dumped Kamala?”

A Record? Twitter Has Had Me “Under Suspension” for SIX MONTHS

I’d sent the Twitter twits a link to my first article, in which I also called them Twitter twits, which probably didn’t exactly endear them to me. I also wrote in reference to my possibly deleting the tweet that this will never, ever happen. The Twitter twits might have taken this as a bit of a challenge and perhaps want to see me go back on my word — see me blink first, as I said.

Report: Mask Mandates Correlate With GREATER COVID Spread/Death

This is striking given that Oregon is one of our less densely populated states. Of course, correlation isn’t causation, and a mask advocate could argue that the numbers would be even worse without the mandate. Yet Oregon isn’t alone in exhibiting this phenomenon. Just consider the following tweets compiled by commentator Andrea Widburg.

When Afghan Nation-building, Did We Remember the Mandatory Pig Roasts?

There some are lessons we can take away from the Afghan experience, ones that many learned long ago. First, don’t tolerate any leftist blather about “ethnocentrism,” multiculturalism or cultural relativism. While liberals are fuzzy-headed relativists, they only preach the above when it serves to destroy Western norms they dislike.

My Troubling COVID Vaccine Story Experiences

I haven’t taken any COVID vaccines and have no intention of doing so. But I learned that a friend of mine had, by way of a complaint he registered: He developed heart inflammation, as he put it, after taking the shot and said he was on medication to treat it. He’s just one person, however.

Why Every Functional Society Needs Fear of God

observing today’s power-mad politicians, increasingly above the law and having no respect for it, it could occur to one that maybe, just perhaps, their behavior might be a tad better if they believed there was accountability in the next world that no amount of political clout could forestall.

Can We Stop with the ‘Indigenous’ Bit Already?

The bottom line is that we have a civilization here, now, today. If it’s worth preserving — and it has given us lifestyle and law unprecedented in history — then we should robustly defend its institutions and traditions. Tearing it down in deference to a false noble-savage fantasy that we’d never actually want as reality is, frankly, stupid.

If Your Clothes Sometimes Stink as Badly as the Culture, Blame Big Brother

When a fleece I often wear during outdoor activity would get wet and I couldn’t let it dry sufficiently, it would sometimes develop that putrid odor that results from extreme bacteria build-up. Then it was time for a good washing, of course. But I found this difficult in my building’s a communal laundry, which only has “high efficiency” machines that appear to just spray the clothes with water. I found myself running the fleece through cycles multiple times to effect a sufficient cleaning. High efficiency?

Zero COVID Deaths: Sweden’s Anti-lockdown Strategy Has Worked

The point is that we must go on with life. Ours isn’t a Last Man on Earth/Omega Man situation, where a virus exterminates most of humanity and zombies roam the countryside. As renowned COVID physician Dr. Peter McCullough has pointed out, the China virus has always been treatable, and a correct and official SARS-CoV-2 treatment protocol could have saved 85 percent of those who died from the virus. (You can partially thank Anthony Fauci for its lack.)

Britain’s Largest Paper Admits: “Trump Was Right!”

Yet it should be noted that what Trump suggested isn’t “his” idea or even a conservative one, but a longstanding forest-management strategy. Consider, for example, that the left-wing New York Times ran the following headline in August 2016: “Like Tens of Millions of Matchsticks, California’s Dead Trees Stand Ready to Burn.”

The Truth: Biden is Supposed to DENY HIMSELF Communion

For the record, Signorile needs to bone up on his theology. The Church does not teach that all mortal sins are equally grave but that, as I believe St. Augustine put it, there’s a hierarchy of sin. And not many acts compare with murdering unborn babies.

Speaking Arabic, Muslim School Board Member Urges Jihad at American High School Graduation

It’s easy now to assume that anti-American Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) must be Omeish’s role model. Yet note here that she “is the daughter of Esam Omeish, a surgeon who was born in Libya,” Meaww.com tells us. “Her father was a member of the Virginia Commission of Immigration. In 2007, he was ironically forced to resign over the usage of the word ‘Jihad,’ when a video showed him condemning Israel’s actions at the time and advocating ‘the jihad way.’”

Once-peaceful Sweden Is Now the Gun-violence Capital of Europe

The reality is that boys could and did carry firearms on New York City subways in the 1940s and ‘50s (they had rifle clubs at school) but can’t today because the people were different back then. Likewise, many people are different in Sweden now — morally, spiritually, philosophically, and culturally — than they were a couple of generations ago.

Washington Doctor Demands “a Recount” — “of COVID Deaths”

The government had long said there were “only” 11 million illegal aliens in our nation, but academic studies place the actual number at two to three times higher. The Centers for Disease Control had maintained that the risk of contracting the coronavirus outdoors was “less than 10 percent,” but it turns out the agency made a bush-league mistake: The actual number may be less than 0.1 percent.

How the Left Plans To Put Boots on the Ground to Subdue Middle America

Of course, white supremacists are about as common as straight, happily married women at a NOW convention; why, I’m well into middle age and I don’t know that I’ve ever met one. This isn’t to say there aren’t liberals delusional enough to believe the threat is real; that they’re detached from reality is partially why leftists are so dangerous.
