Fist Fight offers good audio and video - but that doesn’t help

If you like your comedy movie foul mouthed, mean spirited and populated with sexual predators, Fist Fight is for you. But if it’s representative of today’s comedy films, I weep for popular culture and the society it supposedly reflects.

Rocky or Fight Club it ain’t!

Fist Fight is set on the last day of school, also known as Prank Day, when the students perform pranks on the faculty. Judging by the pranks, these students put a lot more effort into this day than they do into their studies. On the other hand, I think if these folks were my teachers I’d have played hookey a lot more than I did in my misspent youth.

Another ‘revenue neutral’ carbon tax that’s anything but

(This column originally appeared on the Huffington Post blog)

Did you really believe them when they said it would be revenue neutral?

Last week, the Trudeau government announced a ‘technical paper’ on its proposed federal carbon tax which suggests it will mimic Alberta’s carbon tax plan, quashing the optimism of those who believed the federal government when they said their carbon tax would be revenue neutral.

Harvard Law Journal: Unborn Babies are Constitutional Persons

“Harvard law journal: unborn babies are constitutional persons.” So reads the surprising headline on the press release from the student-run Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy. In a provocative article, law student Joshua Craddock fires a challenge not only at pro-choice orthodoxy but at mainstream pro-life thinking. He declares both “constitutionally unsound.”

Edited by Harvard Law School students, the journal describes itself as “the nation’s leading forum for conservative and libertarian legal scholarship.” New Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch’s article on assisted suicide first appeared there. Ted Cruz was an executive editor.—More…

Obamacare repeal will be hard and McConnell just made it harder

Sigh. Just when I’m about to give Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) the benefit of the doubt, he opens his mouth. On Wednesday, McConnell threw cold water on Obamacare repeal by saying that he didn’t see how the Senate was going to do it.

It was clear during the fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Neil Gorsuch that McConnell handles political strategy the way Mayor Bill de Blasio handles police controversies. When Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-People’s Republic of China) threatened to filibuster Gorsuch, McConnell should have responded by threatening to nuke the filibuster for all laws and nominations. This might have gotten Schumer to back down. Instead, McConnell did the equivalent of shaking his head at Schumer and saying, “That’s not very nice.”

MEDIA LOVES NEW ORLEANS MAYOR STILL FIGHTING CIVIL WAR

As the Robert E. Lee monument was being removed last Friday, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu gave a victory speech to a select group of supporters at Gallier Hall, ironically, a former slave auction house.

In the last week, the speech received lavish praise from the liberal media, both locally and nationally. Landrieu received glowing tributes throughout the mainstream news media, from the pages of the liberal Times Picayune in New Orleans to the editorial page of the liberal New York Times.

In fact, on Sunday, Landrieu will achieve the ultimate award bestowed to a liberal politician, an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Judge Censors Video Exposing Planned Parenthood Doc Laughing About Aborted Baby’s Eyes Popping

A judge has forced a pro-life organization to take down a new video that catches Planned Parenthood executives discussing gruesome abortion procedures and the sale of body parts from aborted babies for profit.

The video shows top Planned Parenthood staffers attending meetings of the National Abortion Federation in 2014 and 2015 and it is the latest in a series of over a dozen videos from the organization showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business and others engaging in potentially illegal sale of body parts of aborted babies.—More…

Terrorism, fascism, political correctness, and sexual violence: Four Horsemen of the Left

It has been more than a quarter century since social workers in Rotherham, England and elsewhere began reporting that young women and girls were being “groomed” (i.e. drugged, beaten, raped, threatened with death) and then pimped out by ethnic minority (i.e. Islamic) taxi drivers living in their “community.” The girls were beaten and worse if they tried to escape. Some were murdered.

Easy Meat: Inside Britain’s Grooming Gang Scandal, is a hard book to read, but it should be required reading. Maybe universities and colleges could make it their social-consciousness-raising community read for the beginning of next school year.

And maybe hell will also freeze over.

Bloody Hands in Manchester

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia.

While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”, Manchester police were busy with more important things.

The Greater Manchester Police are one of only two police forces to list Islamophobia as a hate crime category. Earlier this year, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins honored Tell Mama for fighting Islamophobia. Tell Mama had lost funding earlier when its claims of a plague of violent Islamophobia fell apart.

Shahid Malik, the chair of Tell Mama, had been photographed with the leader of Hamas. Appearing at the Global Peace and Unity conference, where plenty of terrorism supporters have promenaded, he boasted, “In 2005 we had four Muslim MPs. In 2009 or 2010 we’ll have eight or ten Muslim MPs. In 2014 we’ll have 16 Muslim MPs. At this rate the whole parliament will be Muslim.”

Anti-Democratic Body Slam May Save Democracy in USA

Body slamming a reporter is a reprehensible anti-democratic act, even if in reaction to a reprehensible provocation, but it may save democracy in the United States if it finally motivates “liberals” to slam and eliminate – or at least cut back – early voting. There is a sense that the people who voted prior to Election Day in Montana made the difference in electing the candidate in Montana who body-slammed a reporter. As a result, enough people in America may finally be motivated to eliminate or cut back early voting, even if for the wrong reason.

Early voting – especially weeks in advance—is anti-democratic for a few reasons.

  1. It increases the chances of voter fraud;
  2. it increases the chances a person may vote more than once;
  3. it increases the chances a person may vote in more than one jurisdiction;
  4. it increases the chances a person may forge his/her name before voting;
  5. it furthers the chances of voter fraud in the absence of requiring voters to identify themselves before voting;
  6. it unlevels the “playing field”;
  7. it enables voters to vote on essentially two differently perceived candidates,
  8. it allows people to vote on a candidate before he or she changes his/her position on any number of issues; and, perhaps above all,
  9. it encourages people to vote on a person without having the most complete understanding of the candidate that is possible on Election Day.

Mark Zuckerberg: Government should give everyone a guaranteed minimum income without work

He is not the first to tout this idea. In fact, it’s been a favorite of Bernie Bro types for a while now. But it’s one thing when some lefty chucklehead on Facebook is pushing the idea of a universal, guaranteed minimum income for everyone - provided by the government with no work requirement whatsoever. It’s another thing when one of the richest and most influential people in the world signs on.

Some will suggest this is a signal Zuckerberg wants to run for office. I really don’t care one way or the other about that. I’d rather focus on merits (or lack thereof) of the idea itself, because it says a lot about the way kings of the technology sector (not to mention certain other industries) have taken to thinking.

Why should everyone get free money from the government, Mark Zuckerberg? Apparently because, if they didn’t have to worry about food or shelter, they could focus their energies on building more great things like Facebook:

Progressives and Jihadists: A Multicultural Matrimony of Cultural Genocide Wedded in Blood

Assimilation is a crime against humanity…There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam, and that’s it…The mosques are our barracks, the minarets our bayonets, the cupolas our helmets, and the faithful our soldiers. -- Tyyip Erdogan, President of Turkey, 2008

The progressive altar of multiculturalism and diversity was bloodied yet again with the lives of the innocent.  Many young girls, one as young as eight, were savagely murdered by a 22-year-old Islamic suicide-bombing loser who detonated a bomb full of nails, bolts and other shrapnel. Twenty-two innocent people murdered, families obliterated, dozens maimed and scarred for life by, yet again, another Muslim male.

Ariana Grande and Salman Abedi – Both Deeply Deceived


It goes without saying that the loss of the young lives in Manchester England is a tragedy of the highest order. Even though they were chasing a pop-culture pipe dream they were subject to the kind of treatment that no one should ever have to endure.

What is hard to escape is the picture the media paints of kids just having fun as a seemingly good thing, being interrupted by the pure evil of a crazed Islamic terrorist without regard for their perfect innocence.

It seems a closer look at what drew these teeny boppers into the arena could stand a great deal more scrutiny.

Obamacare’s replacement allows women to customize their care at lower costs

DENVER — Women make the majority of decisions about care and insurance for our families, and we generally consume more healthcare than men.  As a result, women have a lot at stake when it comes to the laws that govern American health care and insurance.

In 2010, the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) made it illegal for insurers to charge women more than men, and it mandated that insurance plans cover women’s preventive care, including birth control, with no copay.

Therefore, some now suggest that repealing the Affordable Care Act would be a threat to women.  But the opposite is true: Repeal will allow women greater choice and lower costs when it comes to insurance plans, doctors and care.

Dr Carson Compassionately Spoke the Truth About Black Poverty

Dr Ben Carson being under fire for saying “poverty is a state of mind” during an interview is a prime reason why black Americans should end their insane loyalty to Democrats.

In essence, Dr Carson compassionately gave his fellow blacks a crucial key to personal success and overcoming poverty. And yet, Democrat and Leftist self-proclaimed advocates for black empowerment rushed to silence him; beating the crap out of him in the media. As a black man, I am so frustrated.

Up until around age 9, I was raised in the Baltimore projects. My mom, dad, four younger siblings and I were so excited moving from our leaky roof ghetto into a brand new 11 story government high-rise.

Scarborough: You know who’s to blame for that candidate punching that reporter? Donald Trump

I longer Scarborough can keep up the I’m-a-Republican-but-this-all-troubles-me-so-much schtick. Scarborough is first and foremost a creature of the Beltway culture. His party affiliation is hardly worth a footnote given that his job is to cater to mindset of the political class.

Now, normal people (present company included) will offer no excuses for Greg Gianforte’s assault of a journalist, regardless of how obnoxious the guy’s behavior may have been, or how much we may think the journalism profession in general deserves one big body slam. There’s no excuse for it. No one will make any.

That’s what normal people do. Creatures of the Beltway, on the other hand, say things like this:
