Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevins rips media to shreds for being misinformed, irresponsible, dishonest, dumb

Have you ever imagined that you were a public official who had just had it with the media’s nonsense? So you strode to the microphone and you just let it rip? You told them how dishonest they are. How ignorant. How ridiculous. What complete and utter embarrassments they are.

Did you ever imagine this was you? Or just wish that some public official who’d had enough would finally just let them have it?

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevins should be your new hero:

How to Save Your Digital Soul

I’ve met Nikhil Jain in the flesh, and now, on the laptop screen in front of me, I’m looking at a small animated version of him from the torso up, talking in the same tone and lilting accented English—only this version of Jain is bald (hair is tricky to animate convincingly), and his voice has a robotic sound.

For the past three years, Jain has been working on Oben, the startup he cofounded and leads. It’s building technology that uses a single image and an audio clip to automate the construction of what are sort of like digital souls: avatars that look and sound a lot like anyone, and can be made to speak or sing anything.—More…

Since election, yoga rises off the mat to take on Donald Trump

President Trump’s election and the political cacophony that followed are driving waves of people to yoga and meditation, seeking a respite from the roller-coaster ride but also trying to recharge and build energy for a political pushback.

Yoga and mediation coaches say they are seeing increased enrollment and fewer dropouts from the annual “New Year’s resolution” wave of signups. Part of this is stress relief — the American Psychological Association reports that stress nationwide is on the rise for the first time in 10 years.—More…

Twitter Under Fire for ‘Misgendering’ Millions of Users to Advertisers

It’s no secret that companies scrutinize their customers’ online habits, drawing inferences for targeted advertising. Last week, Twitter announced a new transparency tool seeking to demystify the process—and promptly found itself under fire for “cissexism” and “egregious rhetorical violence” against transgender, non-binary, and gender-fluid and gender-nonconforming users.

Like many tech companies that cull data about users’ activity and use machine learning to gain insights, Twitter develops individualized profiles to make ads better fit the unique interests and needs of its users. Those individual profiles include Twitter’s guesses about users’ age range, languages, preferred mobile phones—and, controversially, gender.—More…

It Had to Be the Smirnoff

It was a good plan. After their thunderous loss in the presidential election, our country’s premier Olympian liars—Democrats all—put their heads together to develop a plan to accuse the newly elected president of collusion with our enemy, to get him impeached forthwith, and ultimately to preserve the communist/jihadist government that it took the previous eight years of formal power and a hundred years of planning to accomplish.

First, it was important for the orchestrator and financier of both the former regime and the current “resistance” movement to appear busy with other things, such as financing the travel arrangements of anarchists and thugs, and purchasing shiny new placards to be displayed at often-violent rallies around the country, all protesting the horrible things the newly elected president was doing:

  • Rounding up criminal aliens
  • Seating a conservative Supreme Court Justice
  • Reasserting American military supremacy
  • Sanctioning the murderous mullahs in Iran
  • Dropping the Mother Of All Bombs on ISIS targets in Afghanistan
  • Causing a precipitous rise in employment, et al.
  • Here’s a more extensive list.

Trump a disaster, says guy whose tenure as House Speaker was a disaster

A normal person would wonder why anyone runs to John Boehner for a take on what’s happening in Washington. Only the tenure of sexual predator Dennis Hastert saves Boehner from being the worst Republican House Speaker in the nation’s history. He allowed Barack Obama to run runshod over him on everything from spending to health care to immigration enforcement, and didn’t even seem to mind it all that much.

He was forced out by the base of his own party, which was tired of him making excuses for doing nothing with the majority he was given by voters in 2010, and again in 2012, and again in 2014. He may not have been responsible for the Obama agenda, but he was willing to use none of the power he had to try to stop it.

John Boehner failed as Speaker of the House. The country is in much worse shape than it needs to be because he had the job.

The Real Russia-Gate Scandal

Josh Gerstein’s Politico story about the owners of a Russian bank suing BuzzFeed for publishing the “Trump Dossier” containing “unproven claims” doesn’t go far enough. These “unproven” and even disproven claims that have guided the FBI’s dead-end investigation of President Donald Trump, are one reason that former Director James Comey deserved to be fired.

The real Russian disinformation has been the notorious “Trump Dossier,” which has been serving as the “roadmap” for the FBI.

Weeks after Accuracy in Media exposed the nature of this phony document in a three-part series, “The Final Truth About the Trump Dossier,” Wall Street Journal columnist Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., has stumbled upon the truth, saying the dossier smells like a Russian plant. Our verdict was that the dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele was part of a Russian effort, financed by Hillary Clinton donors, to smear Trump. That’s what the evidence shows.

Sick and tired of teddy bears and flowers

If like me, you’re sick and tired of teddy bears and flowers junking up public spaces because of yet another “man-caused disaster,” then you might be interested in the following:

According to the Saturday edition of the Times of London, there are currently some “23,000 jihadist extremists” living in Britain and all are considered by The Times’ “intelligence sources” to pose a risk of violence. Some more than others, but the intelligence community maintains that all pose a “residual Risk.”

Let’s put this another way; suppose that instead of looking at these dangerous whackos in a law enforcement or mental health context we viewed them in military terms. Exactly how big a hostile force would 23,000 combatants comprise?

Pour Hillary Back into the Chardonnay Bottle

Case you missed it, last Friday, after a prolonged post-election Sabbatical, Hillary Rodham Clinton emerged to give a commencement speech at her alma mater Wellesley College, located west of Boston – [the] birthplace of Clinton’s socialist / communist ideals. Back 48 years after her radical rendezvous with community organizer and renown U.S. hater Saul Alinsky, we got to see this loser disguised in a cap and gown, giving a s hate-simmered fiery address alluding to the controversies swirling around Donald Trump’s imperiled presidency, comparing it to Richard Nixon’s demise.

Some of Clinton’s ill-advised remarks in the commencement speech, referred to Nixon’s failed presidency back in the day. “We were furious about the past presidential election of a man [Nixon] whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice,” said Clinton, referring back to the sentiment on campus the year that she graduated.

A modest proposal: The death penalty for the White House leakers

Let’s start with a few thoughts on drunk driving. If your state is anything like my state of Michigan, you frequently see public service announcements featuring uniformed police officers warning you that, if you drink and drive, you will do prison time, lose your driver’s license, pay hefty fines and end up with a felony record that will make it impossible for you to get a job.

Yet people to drink and drive. Why? Well one reason is that none of the above is really true. Oh it’s true in theory. There are statutes that provide for all this. But they are not applied as the commercials would lead you to believe. In reality, people get seven, eight, nine DUI convictions before there is serious thought given to prison time - unless they kill someone. But even then, the perps rarely serve anywhere near what the law permits.

Suffer From Headaches, Blurred Vision and Tingling In Ear?

A friend recently asked, “Giff, what’s happened? You’ve lost weight!”  He was wrong, as my weight has remained the same for years. But this is not the first time this has happened. It’s because I’ve never liked dress shirts with tight collars. Loose collars exposing the neck convey the impression of weight loss. But surprise! They also help to protect wearers from glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness in North America.

While a student at the Harvard Medical School, I heard this story. A 55 year old businessman complained of headaches, blurred vision and a tingling sensation in the right ear. Harvard professors were not able to make a diagnosis. So he consulted doctors at The Mayo Clinic and famous Harley Street doctors in London, England. None could diagnose his problem.

Memorial Day prayer

This is the day we remember those who have fallen in battle, thereby making the supreme sacrifice in service to our great nation. Too many of us don’t fully recognize what this day symbolizes. So I am offering a Memorial Day prayer, both to give my thanks and hopefully help us all be a little more appreciative.

Here it is:

Dear God:

I pray for the fallen, those brave souls who gave their all for this country, never flinching from their duty, whatever they were called to do, and whether the leadership decisions that brought them to their last mission were well considered or not. They have given all they had, without question.

WATCH: Rex Tillerson Rides with Rolling Thunder to Honor U.S. Military on Memorial Day

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson joined almost one million bikers on Sunday as a rider in a massive caravan of motorcycles that rode from the Pentagon to the National Mall and the Vietnam Memorial on Sunday.

A video posted on YouTube shows Tillerson posing for pictures with other bikers and preparing to mount his own bike for the trip, an annual tradition that began in the late 1980s as a way to honor the U.S. military and to support the continuing search for U.S. soldiers who remained prisoners of war or were missing in action following the Vietnam War.—More….

The Brooklyn-based Democratic Party agitator Sarsour applauds the genital mutilation of pro-woman activists like Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali. In March 2011, Sarsour wrote, “I wish I could take their vaginas away – they don’t deserve to be women.”—More…

To Carry a Gun

One of the great freedoms I can now exercise since leaving California is the right to own and carry firearms (keep and bear arms), which the Constitution guarantees the government will not even touch (infringe).  Of course they do, especially in California and other liberal states.  But in Florida, you can apply for a concealed carry weapons (CCW) permit, and if you meet the standard eligibility and criteria, take a class, pass a background check, and demonstrate a working knowledge of handguns including a practice shoot, you get a CCW.  That was the easy part.  What no one tells you, is that actually carrying a gun in practice is very different from the theoretical discussions we all have with ourselves and others before actually carrying a gun.  And it has some amusing aspects.

The first question is which one are you going to carry?  So you go to the gun safe and look around, and realize that in a predominately non-carry, communist state like California, the guns you can own are both limited in capacity, and design.  That’s because California has a government approved list where most models are at least 10 years old or older, and they have not kept up with concealed carry trends.  If you can only use guns at the range, then your guns tend to be larger target guns, rather than carry guns.  Then you have to think of whether to carry a heavier and wider, steel, 5-6 shot revolver, or a double stack magazine, 10-15 shot, light polymer, semi-auto pistol.  No brainer there.  I’m using a pistol.  Then you have to think which pistol is the most reliable, will save your life, that you can use quickly, and won’t weigh down the pants.  Given this criteria, I go with the Glock.  Don’t leave home without it, to quote an old advertising phrase.
