Watch and Discus

For Fun

This is just fun piece put together by the Great One Mark Levin “Analyzing” Nancy Pelosi being interviewed by Wolfie Blitzer on the Stimulus Bill that she’s holding up.

For Kurt

By Patrick Van Roy On October 16th, 2020 at 5:13 am

As I’ve said I offer any of you that spend your time here everyday the opportunity to write a piece on something you feel passionate about, or believe will evoke a discussion. The following is a piece crafted by Kurt, it is more a piece for discussion I feel safe in saying, rather than anything he himself is passionate about. 

 

Faith in the ballot

 

That’s the title of  an article in the Harvard Gazette by Lauren Kerby , herself a recent author of a book called  “Saving History: How White Evangelicals Tour the Nation’s Capital and Redeem a Christian America,”
She raises four important identifiers to describe this group of  loyal Trump voters ,
referring to them via a delineation of roles :

Founder, exile, victim and saviour

 noting how if one isn’t working they can easily switch to another! 

For example 

” For instance, as founders they can appeal to the authority of George Washington and other Christian leaders in early America to justify things like posting “In God We Trust” in schools. But if, say, something unflattering comes to light about a white evangelical leader, the victim role lets him dismiss it as an attack from anti-Christian forces. It’s a ready-made defense.   

She puts things into perspective as regards the reaction to and against Obama

” In 2014 and 2015, white evangelicals were feeling really under siege, and that came up a lot in the tours. They felt deeply threatened by Barack Obama, the Affordable Care Act, and the pending Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) decision that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. I think a lot of us, not just white evangelicals, felt like progressive values were winning at the time.  

But even now with Trump in office,  with over 200 newly appointed conservatives judges, a republican senate,  2 conservative judges and a 3rd on the way, you’d imagine grounds for optimism but you’d be wrong. 

That feeling of being under siege is too politically expedient to disappear any time soon. Trump is still using the same jeremiad and talking about the threats to Christianity and “our way of life.”

GOP CONSERVATIVES ARE SO STUPID

By Pete Moore On October 15th, 2020 at 10:27 pm

They never fight. The commies are super dirty. They bring everything to a fight because they know the point of a fight is to win. No lie, no tactics, no propaganda is off the table with them. I admire them for it. But GOP conservatives have no fight. That’s why the Washington GOP crowd have always been leery of President Trump; his existence reminds them that they are losers.

Fancy being told that you can have the compromising hard drive of Hunter Biden and doing nothing about it. They need to get out of politics. They are losers. The New York Post’s Miranda Devine, who has just become the last person on Earth likely to get a Pulitzer, explains how her paper got the scoop. In case you’re wondering why the FBI did nothing, they were busy trying to frame the president ..

LUXURY COMMUNISM TO CONTINUE

By Pete Moore On October 15th, 2020 at 7:16 pm

The entire UK is still under special communistic measures. Half of it is designated at a “high” or “very high” alert level. As the alert levels go up my own alert levels to this farce fall further. The only things going up with the alert levels are the national debt, unemployment and boarded up shops.

Lockdown addicts who tell us to “save the NHS” had better have a damned good plan to replace the tax base they’re killing. They don’t know about it because most lockdown addicts are middle class smugaroons working from their cozy homes who think the working class exists to bring them stuff. They’re happy with their gold-plated pensions so screw everyone else.

But note their propaganda. When they talk about so-called climate change it’s “Think about the future generations.” When they talked about the EU and Brexit it was “You’re stealing the future from the young.”

Today it’s screw the young, screw their education, screw their job prospects and screw their chances of never living under a crushing debt.

Lockdown addicts are the worst, most selfish, most self-centered people on the planet.

Censorship is an F’ing outrage

By Patrick Van Roy On October 15th, 2020 at 1:03 pm

This morning, Andy Stone, Facebook’s policy communications manager (and, per his bio, a former staffer for Barbara Boxer, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and the House Majority PAC), announced that the social-media giant would begin “reducing” the “distribution” of a New York Post investigation into emails purporting that Joe Biden met with a top executive from the Ukrainian natural-gas firm Burisma Holdings at the behest of his son Hunter Biden.

Out of control

By Patrick Van Roy On October 15th, 2020 at 1:00 pm

Darren Grimes is not a threat to the public. Hate-speech legislation is.

NRPLUS MEMBER ARTICLEWe all know a good-hearted person with a knack for attracting calamity. Enter 27-year-old Darren Grimes, a talented British broadcaster who, having just slipped on his latest proverbial banana peel, cheerfully assures National Review by Skype that he is more or less all right. Grimes, a charismatic Northern lad with the gift of the gab (as we Brits say), has, in the past several years, managed to attract the wrath of the Electoral Commission, the BBC, and now the Metropolitan Police. His offense? Being conspicuously conservative and — one cannot help but notice — not especially careful.

Grimes’s latest run-in with the British establishment began on June 30 of this year when, in response to the George Floyd protests, he invited the renowned (now disgraced) English historian, David Starkey, onto his YouTube show to discuss the lack of scholarship behind the Black Lives Matter movement. In the course of the interview, Starkey told Grimes that transatlantic slavery did not constitute genocide since “so many damn blacks” had survived. It was a flagrantly offensive remark, one that many considered to be unequivocally racist — though seemingly not Grimes, who let it slide.

As was perhaps foreseeable, within days, the exchange was turned into a truncated Twitter clip, becoming a viral right-wing-bogeymen sensation. And that, as they say, was that.

COVID LESS DEADLY THAN THOUGHT?

By Pete Moore On October 14th, 2020 at 10:55 pm

In March Dr Fauci told Congress that “The flu has a mortality rate of 0.1 percent. This (Covid – PM) has a mortality rate of 10 times that.”

It was an imprecise statement because infectious fatality rates depend on the age, with many variables, of the sufferer. It was also quickly out of date for Covid because treatments and therapeutics rapidly progressed. But let’s take 0.1 percent for the flu.

The World Health Organisation has just published a peer-reviewed paper by Dr John Ioannidis which estimates that the Covid infection fatality rate, for the under 70s, is 0.05 percent.

Conclusion: “The inferred infection fatality rates tended to be much lower than estimates made earlier in the pandemic.”
