More Trouble for Google

Hat tip to Vox Day for excerpting an exciting article by Sara Carter.  It seems another Google insider has handed over almost a thousand pages of documents to the DOJ exposing how the company’s algorithms discriminate against conservative entities.  This directly contradicts testimony made in front of Congress by Google upper management.  Apparently Project Veritas is going to reveal the former insider’s identity today.  Things are definitely moving in the right direction.  I wonder if there is any limit on the size of the fine that can be levied against Google.  ONE TRILLION DOLLARS !!!!!  sounds about right.  Full disclosure, I was holding my pinky at the corner of my mouth as I typed that.  Eat your heart out Dr. Evil.

Seriously, it doesn’t appear that the DOJ is going to need much more evidence to move forward.  It’s a matter of whether they have the will.  We shall see.

 

07AUG2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – Igniting Civil War by Anthony Codevilla

Codevilla walks us through the predictable script that bloody civil wars have taken from Corcyra in Ancient Greece all the way up to the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s.  We’ve taken the first steps.  Hopefully we can walk back to sanity.  Very good read.

President Trump Agrees with My Opinion

Although I’ve been kind of hoping that the psychos will carry the day and give us Democrat Candidate Spartacus or Candidate Mayor Pete I’ve gone on record saying I think Creepy Uncle Joe will be the candidate.  Apparently President Trump agrees.  Great minds think alike.

But I’ll bet he also would like to face off against the wackier choices.  Who could resist that kind of fun?

The ZMan Has an Excellent Post Comparing Ancient Rome to Us

The ZMan is one of my favorite bad thinkers.  Even if I disagree with his conclusions sometimes he is always entertaining and thought provoking.  Here he looks at the civic nationalism of  a loyal roman general and that of Kris Kobach who is running for the Senate in Kansas.  A good read.

28JUL2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – The Great Excluded and Our Nationalist Future By Matthew Boose

Living as I do in the thin space between the lumpen masses of the civic nationalists and the bomb-throwing bad-thinkers of the Post America far right I have my days when I long for the good old days when it seemed like if we could just get the tax code straightened out that “we’d be just as right as rain!”

But when I look around me and remember that back in the bad old days of 2015 those bad-thinkers were predicting that the fallout from the Left’s identity politics strategy along with the economic results of a globalist business policy would push normal Americans into a Nationalist direction I see once again that they were right.

And the proof of this is when a mainstream site like American Greatness starts getting closer and closer to the conclusions of the bad-thinkers:

Without a doubt “The Great Awakening” is upon us.  And that’s good.  Because the awakening is itself a victory.  The fear and uncertainty associated with disinformation is paralyzing.  Damage done by supposed leaders of your own cause are the most devastating.

We’re getting somewhere.

24JUL2019 – American Greatness Post of the Day – Sorting Out the New Color Wheel by Anthony Esolen

Here’s a fun mockery of the concept of racial entitlement.  As an Italian American of southern extraction I chuckled at the idea that somehow Elizabeth Warren was mistaken for a “woman of color” but I was oviously just an undeserving white man.

My favorite line, “In America today, a family legend that a thrice-great-uncle was or may have been part cigar store Indian wins you some points for enrollment at Harvard.”

 

 

 

Reading Some More Tea Leaves

Tom Friedman of the New York Times is one of my least favorite people.  And the last thing I want to do is provide the NY Times with clicks.  But the teaser was just so delicious I couldn’t resist:

“I’m struck at how many people have come up to me recently and said, “Trump’s going to get re-elected, isn’t he?” And in each case, when I drilled down to ask why, I bumped into the Democratic presidential debates in June. I think a lot of Americans were shocked by some of the things they heard there. I was.”

And Friedman was far from the only panicky lefty begging the Democrat voters not to jump on the Crazy Train to Bizarro World.  That’s the place where $37 trillion green new deals come to life and send Democrat candidates over the rainbow but not into the White House.

Here are the links but don’t feel obligated to click.  I’ve suffered so you don’t have to.

Looking at today’s RealClearPolitics poll numbers Creepy Uncle Joe Biden seems to have regained his large lead in all the primary polls available.  Now whether this is manufactured or not is always very hard to tell since gaslighting is their principal stock in trade.  After all the drama last week I was very curious to see if one of the zanier candidates like Booker or Beto might have benefitted from the show of solidarity for the Four Horsefaces of the Apocalypse by the House.

But anyway you slice it, less crazy Democrats are getting very worried that the nuttier positions that all the Democrat candidates have agreed with (e.g., full healthcare for illegal aliens) will scare away all moderates and independents.  And they should be scared.  Especially when we know that the next debate coming up will be powered by the rage engendered by President Trump’s masterful trolling of Ilhan Omar.  Without a doubt illegal immigration will be an important subject and nutty things are bound to come out.  And in that crowd, there will be a strong temptation to say way too much.

But maybe Friedman’s column and the other ones are a signal that cooler heads are already applying the brakes to the Crazy Train and that the next debate will be more about demonstrating the moderate and statesmanlike behavior that Creepy Uncle Joe displays whenever he’s tied to the two-wheeler and they remember to use both the bite mask and straitjacket.

This should be a very interesting week.  On Tuesday Boris Johnson will be appointed leader of the Tories and that will mean he’ll be Prime Minister as soon as they can get him a sword or powdered wig or whatever.  Johnson has sworn to complete Brexit by Halloween.  Well, that’s right around the corner so he’s going to have to get his butt in gear ASAP.  Making it happen will be far from a cakewalk so there may be fireworks on the horizon.

But the week after this is the next Dem debate.  And as I described above, it will be seen whether the grownups are back in charge or the lunatics are still running the asylum.  My money has been with the grownups and if I’m right Biden will have a very good night.  But, of course, what I’d prefer is for Spartacus or Mayor Pete to put his pinky next to the corner of his mouth and in his best Dr. Evil impression declare that he will demand that America pay “one googol dollars!” in reparations to everyone who doesn’t work for a living and won’t vote for Donald Trump.

I have to confess the last few weeks have been confusing but I’m encouraged by just how much naked fear is being expressed by the Progressives who have jobs in the Media.  I think they know that a second term will put an end to the success of the “Oust-Trump” bandwagon that they’ve been living off for the last three years.  They’re desperate and they know if the crazies run this campaign their goose is cooked.  Well, I think their goose is cooked regardless.  But fear, uncertainty and disinformation (FUD) is always wonderful when it’s running loose in the enemy camp.  “Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war.”

 

Texas Takes Steps Against Woke City Governments

San Antonio doesn’t think Chick-fil-A is sufficiently respectful of the LGBTQ agenda so they banned them from doing business at the San Antonio airport.  But Texas still has a majority of non-Leftists so Governor Abbott worked with the legislature to approve a law that forbids local government from punishing businesses for their religious beliefs

We need more states to bear down on the lefty cities in their jurisdictions.  The people in the conservative hinterlands will enjoy that immensely.
