How True

Against Jihad, a Quantum of Solace Is Not Enough

Pardon my French, but what a steaming pile of horse manure. No one ever said that a single act of Mohammedan violence could shut down a great city; what shuts down a great city is its takeover by Islam. Has any city ever had its quality of life, art and culture improve by a Muslim conquest? The point of the recent attack was not to "shut down" London but to remind the native English that it's only a matter of time before their city falls, as Baghdad, Cairo and others have fallen before it. Like SPECTRE, Islamists have people everywhere:

This Is Amusing

Safe Spaces Parody Goes Viral, Sparks Tour

And the clip is officially viral. So far, it’s generated more than 900,000 views on YouTube since March 8. And the number is growing.

“The response has been massive … it’s been called the anthem of right,” McGrew says.

The mainstream media, which uniformly covers every late night attack on President Donald Trump, has mostly avoided the parody. Meanwhile, conservative outlets like TruthRevolt.org and Fox News eagerly shared the track and its back story.

(I've been up to my elbows in allgaors lately, as they say in Florida, so I haven't even listened to this yet. Will have to hear it this weekend.)

Team Trump Is Kicking Butt at the United Nations

America is boycotting a weeklong session at the UN Human Rights Council that started Monday, and is pressuring others to oppose five related resolutions expected to be raised on Friday, at the end of that session.

As US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley pointed out Monday, only one country is subjected to regular scrutiny and condemnation in each of the three annual sessions of the 47-member Geneva-based human rights body.

Guess which one.

“It’s not Syria, where the regime has systematically slaughtered and tortured its own people,” Haley said.

“It’s not Iran, where public hangings are a regular occurrence. It’s not North Korea, where the regime uses forced labor camps to crush its people into submission.

“It’s Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East.”

...

No wonder Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wrote recently to UN supporters that unless the council in Geneva ends its bias — and stops admitting serious human rights violators as members — the United States will walk.

And guess what: In other UN corners, such pressure is already showing results.

The Middlebury Stalinists

Some Middlebury College students wanted "checks and balances" for free speech. Can you imagine?  Er...yes, in these days, yes. But this does show again that college dominated by progressives are hostile to free speech.

Said It Much Better than I Could

John C. Wright, a brilliant science fiction author, and Christian tells why he is overjoyed that  Big Bird and the other parasitic money suckers at PBS will have to find private donors.

As a man who worked, not for one bankrupt news organization, but for two,  the knowledge that part of my meager paycheck went to fund my competators, and to spread lies and propoganda, was a thorn in my eye for all the years of my adult life.

Add to this that Big Bird and all his horrid crew will now have to beg for money from corporate sponsers, or even (gasp!) work for his goshdarned pay like an honest avian.

Add to this that so-called works of art like Piss Christ will not be paid for by money that would otherwise go to pay for bread to feed my children, so that the blasphemous enemy of muse and man alike who calls himself an artist will also be thrown into the marketplace to earn his keep or to starve. (Judging from the alleged quality of the alleged work, my money is on starve.)

What else?

"The departments of Commerce and Energy would see major reductions in funding, with programs under their jurisdiction either being eliminated or transferred to other agencies. The departments of Transportation, Justice and State would see significant cuts and program eliminations."

Since, to the best of anyone’s knowledge, none of the departments of Commerce, Energy, and Transportation have ever added an iota of happiness to any human life, have unloaded buckets of misery by acting as leg-irons to the economy, and have no justification whatsoever under the Constitution, this is merely delight added to ecstasy.

German scientists test 'artificial sun'

Scientists in Germany flipped the switch Thursday on what's being described as "the world's largest artificial sun" and which they hope will help shed light on new ways of making climate-friendly fuel.

(Have you notice there's never been a flood of scientific discoveries croming from Muslim countries? Have you noticed that?)

Exposed: Soviet cover-up of nuclear fallout worse than Chernobyl

It was a nuclear disaster four times worse than Chernobyl in terms of the number of cases of acute radiation sickness, but Moscow’s complicity in covering up its effects on people’s health has remained secret until now.

We knew that in August 1956, fallout from a Soviet nuclear weapons test at Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan engulfed the Kazakh industrial city of Ust-Kamenogorsk and put more than 600 people in hospital with radiation sickness, but the details have been sketchy.

After seeing a newly uncovered report, New Scientist can now reveal that a scientific expedition from Moscow in the aftermath of the hushed-up  disaster uncovered widespread radioactive contamination and radiation sickness across the Kazakh steppes.

 The scientists then tracked the consequences as nuclear bomb tests continued — without telling the people affected or the outside world.

(In a free society, such a disaster could not have been covered up. Alas, nowadays, the press seems to be nothing but an arm of the Democratic party. When an event is damaging to leftists it's downplayed or ignored.)

Now Let Us Praise Shale

Global greenhouse gas emissions stalled for the third year in a row in 2016, and environmentalists the world over are going to have to swallow their pride and give credit where credit is due: to the American shale revolution.
