The myth of ‘white privilege’

Apr 21, 2017 — Klaus Rohrich

To listen to the juvenile whack-jobs ranting about ‘white privilege’ one would think that black slavery was still pretty much alive and well in America. The latest pabulum maintains that white people merely have to show up, blow their white folks’ dog whistle and wealth and power just falls into their laps.

Except that it doesn’t. My own personal experience as a white guy who came from a dirt-poor family is just one example. I won’t bore you with my various tales of working full-time while earning my college degree or with all the social opportunities today’s young take for granted that I chose to forego in order to sleep and/or study, but suffice it to say my efforts, not my whiteness, are largely to be credited.

When the climate hysteria goes away its steep costs will remain

Apr 1, 2017 — Klaus Rohrich

As we enter the 19th or 20th year of the so-called ‘hiatus’ in global warming, it’s becoming fairly clear that the idea of catastrophic climate change is a tad fanciful. I’m sure the potential for climate change certainly exists, because that’s what climate does, but the evidence for this change to be attributed to “carbon pollution” caused by human behaviour is growing ever thinner. I see a time in the not so distant future when the concept of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) will go the way of the VCR.

Many of the scientific experts advocating the AGW thesis are getting ever more desperate to retain their priestly status in the face of increasing evidence that climate change is much more complicated than climate hysterics realize and that there is a strong emerging body of evidence that many factors affect climate, not just fossil fuels. I still don’t understand why some climate scientists maintain that solar cycles have nothing to do with climate change.

This is why America is ‘exceptional’

Jan 20, 2017 — Klaus Rohrich

We just witnessed the swearing in of America’s 45th president, Donald Trump, a man who has never run for public office, yet who managed to tap into the hearts and minds of the American people with his message that he will make America great again.

Think about any other country wherein this might be possible, as most Western Democracies see their peoples’ representatives in terms of being anointed, much like an arcane priesthood, and in many ways whomever is elected doesn’t matter because all the candidates stem from similar trees.

‘You guys’ stoppit!

Jan 17, 2017 — Klaus Rohrich

The restrictions on free speech in today’s universities are nothing less than the attempt to take control of language to prevent the free exchange and discussion of ideas.

It all starts innocuously enough; who doesn’t want to end racism? And if the use of certain pejoratives becomes socially unacceptable, then let’s all pitch in! However, the progressive mind is never satisfied unless it is able to impose its will on everyone else.

Who are the ‘clingers’ now?

Dec 28, 2016 — Klaus Rohrich

It’s interesting to note that the majority of my friends find President-Elect Donald Trump offensive. Over the Christmas Season I was asked numerous times by friends and acquaintances what I thought about Donald Trump. I knew up front that these were set-up questions to force me to defend someone they thought morally, ethically and intellectually wanting. And I took a good run at them in efforts to explain the concept of ‘creative destruction,’ an idea initially conceived by Joseph Schumpeter in 1942, that postulates its necessity as an integral part of healthy capitalism.

Hillary’s toast

Feb 18, 2016 — Klaus Rohrich

All the theoretical scenarios being bandied about regarding the 2016 Presidential race are based on the assumption that Hillary Clinton will be the Democrats’ candidate for president. I believe this is a case of wishful thinking mixed with intellectual torpor, as I think Hillary Clinton will not be the Democrats’ candidate.

First of all, her negatives and public personae are such that many voters would just as soon eat their ballots than vote for her.

‘Natural causes.’ Really?

Feb 17, 2016 — Klaus Rohrich

I have become extremely sceptical of all that takes places in modern culture and am thus looking at the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia with more than a hint of suspicion. How convenient that one of the most conservative members of the Supreme Court, the one that’s been an open sore to the Obama administration throughout its tenure, just lies down and dies, thus creating a vacancy on the court that could have ramifications for America’s future too depressing to contemplate.

What’s more, the decision by Texas judge Cinderela Guevara that an independent autopsy was ‘unnecessary’ stinks to high heaven, given what’s at stake

COP 21—Canadians fleeced, again

Dec 14, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

With just a soupcon more of its traditional insensitivity, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), ended its ruefully named “Conference of the Parties 21” (COP21) in Paris on Saturday. I’m sure COP21 was indeed a conference of parties, wild parties, featuring only the best of everything for everyone there. Oysters, pate d’foie gras, Dom Perignon, Courvoisier, hmmm.

After spending nearly two weeks (and gazillions of dollars) at Le Bourget, just, a few miles northeast of Paris, one can only imagine the debaucheries that must have led to the gout & hangovers, which in turn led to the aching heads and blurred vision at the morning conclaves, which furthermore led to the “Agreement” the IPCC has so jubilantly touted.

An orgy of self-righteousness

Dec 9, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

The last two days have demonstrated that no one in the chattering classes, from the White House down to the editorial board of the Gnarled Gulch Post-Sentinel, seems to be overly concerned with actually finding a solution to the threat of terror facing the West. A case in point is The Donald’s latest proposal to temporarily prohibit all Muslims (politically correct pronunciation: ‘moo·Slims) from entering the United States to discourage further terror acts within our borders.

While, admittedly this appears to be an extreme solution to the problem, at least Trump is willing to recognize there is a problem and not attempting to sugar coat the issue in politically correct banalities. Furthermore, the proposal deserves consideration, given the fact that the West has been under some sort of assault by Islamic radicals for over 3 decades. But then, I don’t think that our progressives realize that the definition of insanity entails constantly doing the same things in the same way and expecting different results.

A Muslim in the White House?

Sep 22, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

It’s interesting how a theoretical question set off an avalanche of weaseldom from all the usual suspects, as well as a welcome display of principled philosophy on the part of two GOP presidential hopefuls.

The first arose with Donald Trump, following his failure to correct a questioner at a town hall meeting who referred to Barack Obama as both non-American as well as Muslim. Trump maintained that he was not obliged to issue a “correction” on behalf of the man who called Obama a Muslim.

And who could blame him for not doing so? When one reviews the history of this president’s foreign policy, the majority of which is favourable to America’s enemies and hostile to many of America’s long-time allies it raises more than a few questions about Mr. Obama’s loyalties.

Exceeding the limit

Sep 11, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

There are few things more irritating or destructive than a self-righteous liberal with self-endowed moral authority. The current refugee crisis in the Middle East, arguably the result of policies propagated by a smug, self-righteous American president is a case in point. This crisis has been festering for upward of a half decade and has already displaced millions of people in the Middle East and resulted in several hundred thousand deaths. Yet none of the liberal brain trust has thought that allowing the crisis to mutate into ever more savage dimensions would have consequences for the rest of us.

The President is ‘The Other’

Jul 20, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

For those who drank the hope and change Kool-Aid, here’s some bad news: the ‘fundamental transformation of America’ is in full swing and as they used to say in show biz, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”

That’s because the last 18 months of this corrupt narcissist’s rule will make the first six-and-a-half years look like a high school civics lesson in good governance. I have always found it ironic that the son of a Kenyan Muslim Marxist and disaffected white liberal woman should grow up to become President of the United States. What’s more, the way in which he arrived at the presidency is shall we say, unusual.

Proving the founders wrong

Mar 24, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

I am a long-time admirer of American Exceptionalism, as I understood America to be the very first society in history to recognize that our freedoms arise from something innate within us and not from the government. Or as the Founders put it, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Into the Witless Protection Program

Feb 24, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

It appears State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki has been promoted to the position of Director of Communications at the White House, or as I like to think of it, the Witless Protection Program. Don’t get me wrong, I think Psaki is a perfectly capable individual and it may be wrong to blame the stupid statements for which she is well-known on her, as she was merely fulfilling the mandates of her job by parroting the Administration line.

I am Canadian

Feb 23, 2015 — Klaus Rohrich

In these days of identity politics and hyphenated nationalities it’s easy to forget the simple slogan a Canadian beer company has been using for the better part of two decades: “I am Canadian!”
