I'll Be Offline Until 12-10-16

But I WILL be back. See you Then.

What Did They Expect... ?

85 languages spoken in Buffalo schools as 'New Americans' enter classrooms
Not to mention 85 different cultures.

Is the definition of "American" merely someone who shows up inside the borders of the USA? Or does the the concept of an "American" still demand the education/indoctrination that is used for LEGAL immigrants? Obviously if they speak no English, then they have not pledged allegiance, as do the LEGAL immigrants. Why even have legal immigrants or programs for legal immigrants?

Is acculturation assumed? Or is it even considered necessary any more (multiculturalism makes for "vibrancy" is the mantra). Multiculturation is obviously destined to produce internal balkanization of the USA. Did I say, "destined"? I should say, "designed, and destined".

The solution to the "Babel" problem is to either make every teacher learn 85 languages, or hire 85 interpreters for each classroom.

They're here; they're illegal; they will steal time, attention and education from students who are legal residents.

That's Obama's Beloved Legacy: tear up the Middle East; create war Victims; pretend to be their Savior; make Victims out of Americans; be perplexed that many Americans don't wish to be Obama's Victims; place blame everywhere except where it belongs; claim huge success; buy yourself and family houses everywhere except in flyover country.

A permanent residence in Sudan would be my choice for the Obamas. Maybe Libya. Or Jupiter along with Barbra.

Reality Doesn't Intrude On VOX

Barack Obama is officially one of the most consequential presidents in American history
Har! Oops, he's not joking. But reality is closer to this:

Whatever precise form Mr Trump’s administration takes, we know this: Mr Obama’s legacy will be purged. In many cases all it will take is the stroke of Mr Trump’s pen.

The Obama erasure will go far deeper than undoing domestic laws, or foreign deals. Mr Trump will repeal Obamacare, or alter it beyond recognition. He will “keep an open mind” about whether to pull the US out of the Paris agreement on climate change and quite probably blow up the US-Iran nuclear deal. These acts would undo Mr Obama’s most visible achievements. Less obvious ones, such as the ban on Arctic drilling and enhanced interrogation techniques and the intention of closing Guantánamo Bay (never completed) will also be consigned to the dustbin. It will be as if Mr Obama was never here.
Music to my ears...

Recount: Quote of the Day

It’s almost as if Jill Stein, a regular on Russia Today TV, is pursuing a strategy calculated to foment chaos. But we’re not hearing anything about that from the people who’ve been seeing Russkis under their beds for months.
Glenn Reynolds
The most cogent estimate of the reasons for the recount that I've read is that if the recounts are not finished by Dec 19, then the electoral vote cannot happen, throwing the issue into Congress, which will vote Trump anyway. That would mean that he was elected by politicians, not the people, so that would somehow diminish his stature.

Trump is right to push the issue of illegal votes. In vote recounts the Dems always find box loads of extra Dem votes that show up at the most convenient time for them. And the statistical analysis which shows 3 million illegals voted still stands.

UPDATE:

White House denies that Russia hacked election for Donald Trump win

The Obama administration confirmed the 2016 results, telling the New York Times that the presidential contest "accurately reflects the will of the American people."

That certification follows bipartisan questions about the validity of the electoral system before and after Election Day. But according to the White House, both sides are misguided.
So the Executive Branch has certified the election results.

When Science Becomes Fiction, and Vice-Versa

Time travellers could use parallel dimensions to visit the past, scientists claim

Physicists reveal sensational findings which could allow science fiction dreams to become reality

THERE are multiple timelines playing out in parallel universes, according to a team of researchers.

The sensational claim was made by a team of physicists, who believe that the parallel universes can all affect one another.


The team’s ‘Many Interacting Worlds Theory’ provides a whole new perspective on the ideas underpinning quantum theory, a notoriously complex strand of physics.

Professor Wiseman said: “The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957.

“In the well-known ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation’, each universe branches into a bunch of new universes every time a quantum measurement is made.

“All possibilities are therefore realised – in some universes the dinosaur-killing asteroid missed Earth. In others, Australia was colonised by the Portuguese.

“But critics question the reality of these other universes, since they do not influence our universe at all.

“On this score, our ‘Many Interacting Worlds’ approach is completely different, as its name implies.”
We, of course, don't observe any of that. None of that. Zero. No universes spawning from quantum measurements (that would make quite a mess, wouldn't it). Nor do we observe actual time-travelers hopping out of other universes - contra Arnold.

The entire concept is built on a large stack of presuppositions that start with the fatally flawed Copenhagen Understanding[*] of Quantum Mechanics. That plus String Theory, which is merely mathematical fantasy, with obvious and logical mathematical intransigence such as claiming that infinity divided by infinity = 1.

It's shameful that physics has been reduced to this sort of absurdity. Make that cumulative absurdities. The original requirement for experimental proof of a deduced theory based on inductive observation no longer hampers the pursuit of "physics"... to its huge intellectual detriment. Objective knowledge has been replaced with Appeal to Authority, where the designation, "scientist", is given the authority of the modern cult's priesthood.

Hopping onto a parallel universe contained in parallel dimensions in order to go backward in time is actually merely poor science-fiction.


* When viewed through Quantum Field Theory, the absurdities generated by the Copenhagen Understanding go away. Schrodinger's Cat is still alive .

Says The Massively Failed JEB!

Jeb Bush urges the GOP to restore its brand: There is 'no excuse for failure'
Restore the billionaire-owned Democrat-light party of the Bush Dynasty... Why on earth would anyone who is not a Bush want that? JEB! had his chance and his wasted $millions and found the answer which he refuses to accept. No one listened to him or dynasty or his $millions, why would they listen now? Maybe he should picket and demonstrate and shout, "NOT MY PRESIDENT!". I'd jeer that, too.

Quote of the Day

Glenn Reynolds:
"Seen on Facebook:
Progressives on 9/12: ‘Just because some Islamics are terrorists, doesn’t mean all Islamics are terrorists! It’s not okay to just walk up and assault them!’

Progressives on 11/9: ‘Some Trump supporters are Nazis so Trump and all his supporters are NAZIS! Just walk up and assault them!’"

Headline of the Day

Perfect: President who pledged to ‘fundamentally transform’ country will speak out if Trump violates American ‘values or ideals’
Sanity requires the existence of truth, in order that thoughts can be compared to reality. Post-truth produces insanity because there is no anchor or grounding for any thought.

Trump vs. MSM

Trump’s media feud enters new era

Press advocates are worried that the president-elect appears to be holding all the cards.

“Over the last 20 to 30 years, each White House has thrown up more obstacles and become more obsessed with controlling their own message,” said Craig Aaron, president of the advocacy group Free Press. “But this is a new apex, and it’s really dangerous. There used to be basic norms. You have to assume anything is possible now.”

Of course, the media will get little sympathy from the public, with a favorable rating sitting at an all-time low in the latest Gallup survey. Only 32 percent of Americans say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the press.

And Trump’s allies believe all of their moves to beat back at what they view as a hopelessly biased liberal media are justified.
The MSM is now trivial. The internet must be protected, though. Otherwise we cannot know the facts.

Good News Doesn't Stop

Left-leaning technical staffers consider leaving DC

This Should Produce Lowering of Sea Levels: Obama Did It!

NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses

A new NASA study says that Antarctica is overall accumulating ice. Still, areas of the continent, like the Antarctic Peninsula photographed above, have increased their mass loss in the last decades.

A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers.

The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice.

According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.

More WaPo Bullshit

Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say
The "fake" news is this:
The tactics included penetrating the computers of election officials in several states and releasing troves of hacked emails that embarrassed Clinton in the final months of her campaign.

“They want to essentially erode faith in the U.S. government or U.S. government interests,” said Clint Watts, a fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute who along with two other researchers has tracked Russian propaganda since 2014. “This was their standard mode during the Cold War. The problem is that this was hard to do before social media.
It's both true and it's bullshit: government and Leftist intransigence needs to be known. The release of the emails could well have been hacked by the Russians. But no one - NO ONE - denied either their validity or that they revealed the evil actions of the Left. A number of people lost their jobs due to the FACTs released to the public via the emails. And yes, the knowledge of the lack of honesty and any semblance of morality in the Left did, in fact, play to Trump's benefit. Possibly. Probably.

But it was not FAKE NEWS. It was merely outside the control of the elites, the MSM including and especially WaPo and the Leftist owners of facebook, Twitter, etc. who wish to control the thoughts of the world. So calling it "fake" is the ploy being used to suppress facts that reflect badly on the Left. The entire premise presumes the desirability of the continued news control by the Leftist elites.

The biggest danger is that the current freedom of the internet is vulnerable to Leftist control, especially now that it is no longer controlled by the USA. Still, there could be a separate, parallel 'net created, "internet II", I suppose, to work just in free* nations. Carriers would have to be forced to provide it, probably. It could happen, in theory.

*Are there any? There will be, if the current nationalist revolt continues.

It Doesn't Need Saying Again, But I Just Feel Like Saying It

Trump put an end to:
1. Bush Dynasty
2. Billionaire-bought-and-owned politicians
3. Republican establishment
4. Clinton Dynasty
5. Democrat establishment
6. MSM stranglehold
7. Any concept of Leftist civility
8. Obama's legacy
There will be an extensive list soon, including killing TPP, quit stalling pipelines, quit reducing and PC'ing the military, eliminating the Leftist hegemony in Administration agencies including Education, IRS, EPA, Justice, Homeland Security, etc.

It'll be a blizzard of destruction for the Left and reconstruction of true tolerance, responsible constitutional law, rational (if rowdy) reconstruction of cultural morality, and marginalization of America/white/male hatred and PC war. Great time to be alive!

More Popcorn!

Trump and Twitter Eradicate the Necessity of the MSM Filter

Trump Actually Treating Media Better Than They Deserve

Trump's social media habits scare them the most, because as we saw with the New York Times meeting, he can take his case directly to the public. That connection has a lot of people freaked out because it seriously upsets the old order. No longer is everything filtered through the MSM. I've been saying since the beginning of the campaign that political science students will be studying Trump's use of social media in this election for years to come.

Republicans who were uncomfortable with Trump's rough style during the campaign and longed for Mitt Romney's class and decency seemed to have forgotten that Romney's fortunes turned on a dime because Candy Crowley ran interference for President Obama during a debate, fact-checking something Romney had asserted. One small problem, her fact-check was a lie. He essentially lost the election to a CNN reporter.

But, hey, above the fray and whatnot, right?

If the only thing Trump accomplishes in office is giving the GOP some lessons in handling the derelict, irresponsible MSM then he will have given the party a lasting gift that will reap rewards for it far into the future.

If some feelings are hurt along the way, they probably needed to be.

The Inevitability of White Nationalism Due to Leftist Identity Classism

National Review still doesn't comprehend the Class War:
An Awful Lot of Media Coverage for About 200 Losers Getting Together

Yes, it’s absolutely awful that about 200 white nationalist guys – or maybe 199 guys and former reality television star Tila Tequila – got together at a Washington D.C. convention center, give Nazi salutes, yelled “Hail Trump!” and generally made asses of themselves.

[...]

The Washington Post chose the headline, “attendance rises at annual white nationalist conference in D.C.”, without any actual numbers in the article. CNN declared, “White nationalism, a term once on the fringes, now front and center.” The San Diego Union-Tribune declared, ‘Trump’s win brings ‘white pride’ out of the shadows.” Again, remember: about 200 guys. A lot of the coverage quotes the members and leaders, discussing how quickly their membership is growing and boasting of how influential they will be in the incoming Trump administration. They really seem to believe that they represent a wide swath of Americans, and that they’re coming out of the closet and many will follow. Jared Taylor, editor of a white nationalist journal, tells Vox, “I see a kind of awakening — I think we will see this in local elections. School boards, city councils, mayor, maybe Congress in certain districts,” and Vox’s correspondent concurs, “This kind of politics is on the rise in America.”

When the Left speaks, it is in terms of Class. Yes, they misrepresent the conference, and that's because they need to "personalize" the Class, so it can be attacked without abstraction. But the class itself is everyone who is not a designated Victim or a self-designated Messiah. That pretty much leaves Whites, and a few responsible representatives from each minority who are not victims and don't intend to be ("white hispanics", uncle toms, most Asians).

Given that, the two characteristics, identifying as "American citizen" rather than "citizen of the world" as Obama identifies, and being white (that abomination), places one squarely into the WHITE NATIONALIST category/officially designated Class.

This will be used for the next decade, at least, as the pejorative of choice for the uber-tolerant, massively moral and self-righteous, viciously Class Warrior, Arroganti of the Perpetually Outraged/Deranged Left.

So White Nationalism is real, and most whites who proudly identify as Americans are now Classified as White Nationalists. This was, of course, originally a rabidly racist position populated by skin heads and proto-NAZIs, and despised by nearly all whites. No Longer. The bitter association of all whites with the despicable racists is the actual objective of the new designation foisted upon whites by the Left. It is being used to strike fear into the minorities, and to gel the position of Class Warriors as the saviors of the Victimhood Classes.

The Left lies with impunity through the vehicles of the Leftist MSM. Whatever evil they charge their opponents with, is amplified and hammered down the throats of those who still read the MSM. And that is why the war is just starting. The first casualty of war is truth; it must be resuscitated and weaponized. And part of the truth is this: they won't quit their viciousness voluntarily; they will have to be forced to become civil, law abiding, and actually (classically) tolerant. More truth: it will necessarily be brutal.

Post-Truth Denialism: MSM Can't Identify Dishonesty, When It's Them

King Shocked That Trump Would Call CBS News, ‘Dishonest Media’
They cannot be honest because they cannot see their own dishonesty. They are narrative mongers, Leftist shills, amoral parrots and nothing more. They would be despicable if they were sane.

More Democrat Pay-to-Play Corruption

NY Governor’s [Eight] top aides indicted on sweeping corruption charges. (Is Hillary next?)

We’ve discussed U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara here many times in the past. His pursuit of government corruption wherever it may be found and the prosecution of those who betray the trust of the public has become legendary. That’s why, when he told reporters earlier this year that he detected an “air of corruption” in the executive branch of New York’s state government people were rightly looking over their shoulders. Now his work in that area is moving into high gear. Bharara has made his case to a grand jury and been given the green light to take eight top aides and associates of Governor Andrew Cuomo to trial on charges of corruption.

[...]

There are more shady deals described in these charges than you can shake a stick at, but one of the biggest is Cuomo’s “Buffalo Billion” initiative, which Bharara described as little more than, “a cash cow for friends of the administration” who funneled money into the governor’s campaign war chest. Cuomo himself has somehow managed to avoid indictment thus far and still insists that he was utterly oblivious to any nefarious dealings allegedly going on in his administration. Pull the other one, Governor. It’s got bells on it.

As a side note, I find it interesting that when aides to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie are charged or convicted on something related to Bridgegate it consumes the news cycle for days on end. When the same thing happens to Andrew Cuomo it’s apparently a “local news story.” Funny how that works, eh? (New York Observer)

No Room For Whites in the New Color Identity Democrat Party

Remember when the Democrats were all-white racist slave-owners? Separate-but-equal racists? KKK/Jim Crow? Now they're going to be the non-white racist, Perpetual Victimhood of Color party.
Former Sanders Spokeswoman: "We Don't Need White People Leading The Democratic Party"

"Symone Sanders, former spokeswoman for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, appeared on CNN Wednesday afternoon to weigh in on the future of the DNC and the Democratic party. Sanders dismissed the idea of Howard Dean returning as DNC chairman commenting, "we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now."

"Howard Dean is also on record maligning young people and millennials. Telling those Bernie folks they just need to get in line and maligning Bernie Sanders. And that is not what we need," Sanders said about the former party chairman.

"In my opinion we don't need white people leading the Democratic party right now," Sanders said. "The Democratic party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels. From the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC."

"I think we need a robust discussion about this and I think we need to hear more from all the candidates," Sanders told CNN's Brianna Keilar. "Jaime Harrison of South Carolina, he's great, too. He's done real party building, but everybody doesn't necessarily know Jaime and they want to know what he stands for. So I want to hear more from everybody."

"I want to hear from the millennials and the brown folks," she finished."
Rather than universal tolerance for humankind, the Dems have kept their racism. Only the skin colors have changed. Identity Politics is still all they have to offer. Remember the dim past when Hillary "deserved" the presidency because of her identity? Whoops! Wrong identity.

Post-Truth Leftist Haters Gonna Hate

GAFFNEY: The ‘Big Lie’ Is Back

Much in evidence among such “old-fashioned techniques” now being employed is what’s known as “the Big Lie.” It entails the endless repetition of outrageous falsehoods to defame, and ultimately silence, one’s political opponents.

Three good men Donald Trump has selected for key strategic and national security positions are currently getting the Big Lie treatment: his White House Counsel Steve Bannon, Attorney General-designate Senator Jeff Sessions, and incoming National Security Advisor Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. They are being relentlessly vilified as “racists,” “bigots” and “haters.”
If the Left doesn't like you, they have just a few words for you: Racist. Misogynist. Bigot. Hater.

It's just what they do, all they know. They don't need facts, because there is no truth outside the narrative; there is only the narrative, and the BIG LIE is the fundamental premise of the narrative.

So these lies hold some weight within the Leftist cult, only because they are virtue signalling. Not because they are true, because - again - there is no truth for the Leftist.

What do they accomplish with their false charges? Nothing, of course, for those who do value truth. But within the cult itself it enrages the drones to frothy hatred, racism and bigotry. And their hatred, racism and bigotry is highly self-righteous and self-justified elitist morality, as morality is understood by the Left. In other words, it is self-justified by Leftist, elitist moral arbiters for the universe.

Leftist elitist self-righteous morality dominated the 20th century in places like China, USSR, North Korea, Cuba, Cambodia, Viet Nam, and now stands out in Venezuela. Intellectual honesty would recognize that. But honesty requires some conception of truth beyond narrative. Leftists do not have anything like that.

George Takei, Wrong Again

Glenn Reynolds sets George straight on actual history:
ACTUALLY, GEORGE, IT WAS DEMOCRATS WHO INTERNED YOUR FAMILY. SO GIVEN YOUR POLITICAL LOYALTIES, SHOULDN’T THAT BE “WE,” NOT “THEY?” George Takei: They interned my family. Don’t let them do it to Muslims.
Democrats are currently discriminating against Asians wanting entry to universities. Wake up George. Then take a look at Muslim countries around the world, and see how liberal they are.

Narrative: Never a substitute for actual thought.
