Ethical Revolution in America

Last week, I was in New Orleans, Louisiana, to speak to some of the most pleasant, most wide awake, alert people I have ever met. They are a group called INFOR, and they do software solutions for extremely difficult problems. I could not have asked for a better audience. They even asked questions, and that’s a real treat. I stayed at a lovely hotel called the Windsor Court and had a fine breakfast every day. My pal Judah and I strolled around the French Quarter to whatever extent my bum right knee would permit.

Thank you, Mr. Stein. I understand that hearts take much longer to change than laws - and it took lives sacrificed and over a century of time to change laws. But until this last decade I didn't see our country so much divided by skin color as by cultural preferences and education. And now I see the divisions among us as jealousy and hatred largely stirred up by politicians - almost entirely by the Democrat left. Their cynical troll for votes aim to make minorities see their problems as someone else's fault and due to the color of their skin. Isn't it sad that America's first black President elected in part because we wanted to send a message of color blindness ended up worsening racial relations in our land?

When will people understand that the left's continuing, in-your-face, style of politics is exacerbating a problem that only exists in the hearts of themselves but effects the rest of society. America will continue on the path of bettering itself and do the job more efficiently without all the vitriol from the left!

I believe the laws against segregation were passed in 1954. So I doubt that there were still white and colored bathrooms and water fountains at that time. Of course, the city was run by democrats, so it is possible. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 would not have passed without the Pubs, as a majority of Dems, who held the Congress and Presidency, voted against it.

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney criticized President Donald Trump over his decision to pull troops from Northern Syria. “The President’s decision to abandon our Kurd allies in the face of an assault by Turkey is a betrayal,” Romney said Monday in a tweet. “It says that America is an unreliable ally; it facilitates ISIS resurgence; and it presages another humanitarian disaster.

In Alan Moore’s brilliant graphic novel, Batman: The Killing Joke, the Joker justifies his psychopathic behavior by philosophizing that every human being is just "one bad day away" from rejecting the polite veneer of civilization’s morality in the face of an indifferent universe. To him, we are all amoral sleeper agents awaiting the secret code word to awaken us to selfish violence. Yet, even if the universe is indifferent, most people are not.

For decades now it has been widely assumed by many liberal observers that Clarence Thomas was a man of mediocre intellect, a lapdog to the late Antonin Scalia with no original judicial philosophy who would, despite his historically long tenure on the Supreme Court, leave no lasting legacy. It is rumored that Thomas himself enjoys reading their speculations.

One of the greatest public services President Donald Trump has done for the nation is forcing institutions and people to reveal their true character. While this has been the most valuable when it comes to the media, it has also been valuable when it comes to unmasking globalist Republicans. This was again on display this week, most notably in the revelation that Paul Ryan was inciting Fox News from his position on the board of Fox Corporation to "decisively break" with President Trump.
Ruling Class vs. ‘The Others’ 1 reply

There has always been a troubling trend on the Left, and among statists and the ruling class in general, when it comes to the rule of law. For those types, “rule of law” means more of a series of suggestions intended to keep “the others”—that is, “the deplorables” or we peasants—in our place. It’s very much “a good for me, but not for thee” mentality. Should any of us violate the laws, we can expect to have the book thrown at us. But for them, it’s more a slap on the wrist, if anything at all.

President Trump on Monday tweeted out a video mocking Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) over his failed 2012 presidential bid, comparing it with Trump's own success four years later. The video includes clips of election night in 2012, when Romney lost to former President Obama, and in 2016, when Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The education secretary took part in a roundtable discussion at an ordinary Catholic school. The media labeled it an extraordinary scandal. Rod Dreher’s “Law of Merited Impossibility” condenses the rhetorical game played by cultural progressives to first secure, and then enforce, changes in public morality: “It will never happen, but when it does, you bigots will deserve it.” Traditionalists, in Dreher’s telling, are lulled into a truce with social revolutionaries, who mock the dystopian nightmares of social conservatives as things that “will never happen.” But when the “it” happens, the revolutionaries insist that the bigots . . . deserve it.

Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said that if President Trump asked Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, it would be "troubling in the extreme." After reports of a complaint filed by an intelligence community whistleblower, details have surfaced of a conversation in which Trump allegedly urged Ukrainian officials to dig into both Biden and his son, Hunter, for his business dealings there.

If President Trump endorses gun-control legislation, it will take 13 Senate Republican votes to pass the measure, assuming the entire 47-member caucus of Democrats and Independents backs it. Conservatives such as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) say any proposal that goes as far as the 2013 amendment sponsored by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) will face a backlash from the right, meaning 60 votes will be necessary to break a filibuster

Trump has accused Biden of trying to stop an investigation into the Ukrainian gas company where his son, Hunter, was a board member."Senator, if the overwhelming issue is President Trump must be defeated, do you feel you and other Democrats must be doing more to speak in one voice that Joe Biden’s family is off-limits?"

I can’t wrap my head around all that I’ve done to myself in the last two years, much less the “help” that some health care professionals have done to me. Two years ago, I was a healthy, beautiful girl heading toward high school graduation. Before long, I turned into an overweight, pre-diabetic nightmare of a transgender man. I won’t place the full blame on health care providers, because I should have known better. But they sure helped me do a lot of harm to myself—and they made a hefty buck doing it.

Rep. Ilhan Omar has filed for divorce from the father of her three kids—amid allegations that she had an affair with a DC-based political consultant. The freshman congresswoman filed to split from husband Ahmed Hirsi on Friday in Minnesota, the state she represents, the Post has learned. Omar, 38, and Hirsi were married in a religious ceremony in 2002. The two separated in 2008, then legally remarried in 2018.

Genteel Republicans like Mitt Romney complain about Donald Trump’s unpresidential behavior but how else does he combat the dirty left? Only a barbarian could defy the liberal establishment as he has done. Imagine if Romney were president, trying to be dignified and patrician. They’d eat him alive. Unless, of course, he did nothing to block their agenda, in which case he’d be left alone like all the other cowardly roll-over Republicans. The American people chose a barbarian for president because they knew only a barbarian could drain the Washington swamp. And, judging by the president’s unchanged approval ratings since House Democrats launched their impeachment inquiry, not to mention his record donation

Republicans have questioned, and continue to question, whether the Obama intelligence community used foreigners -- from Australia, Italy and the United Kingdom -- to spy on the Trump campaign. Did they outsource spying, in other words. That is part of what Connecticut Attorney General John Durham is investigating, at the request of Attorney General William Barr. But in a very sympathetic interview with former CIA Director John Brennan, NBC's Chuck Todd never asked difficult questions about the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation and Brennan's possible role in it.

Ed Stack, the chairman and CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods, said in a new interview that his company destroyed $5 million worth of semi-automatic rifles after removing them from store shelves last year. Dick’s stopped selling AR-15s after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 but took it a step further after the 2018 Parkland high school shooting, raising the gun purchase age to 21 and banning the sale of high-capacity magazines and assault-style rifles. It was a highly controversial move that Mr. Stack said cost the company “pretty close” to $250 million.

This is the moment to shine for Elizabeth Warren. The crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates is suddenly being cleared for her by a combination of fate and baggage, as Joe Biden faces fallout from his Ukraine connections and Bernie Sanders deals with a heart condition. From stem to stern, the Massachusetts senator has marketed herself as the candidate with all the issues thought out. For every major problem facing the United States, her campaign slogan says she “has a plan for that.” Warren is running on a myriad of big government programs including Medicare for all, student loan forgiveness, and free college.

Los Angeles — It’s been three years since the Brexit referendum and the election of Donald Trump sent shock waves throughout the world. Those events in Britain and the U.S. symbolized a broader revolt against elites by frustrated voters in other countries. The populist revolt was a reaction to elites’ reckless and anti-democratic push for ever greater integration. Many critics have tried to paint these uprisings in scary terms by branding them as rooted in racism or xenophobia. I myself part company with the more radical populist movements on some issues — especially those that want to shut down legal as well as illegal immigration. But it’s unarguable that many

A woman somehow managed to get on a Delta flight without identification or a boarding pass, causing a three-hour delay in Florida over the weekend, officials said. The airline apologized in a statement Sunday after the unidentified woman got on an Atlanta-bound flight Saturday at Orlando International Airport, sat in another person’s assigned seat and flatly refused to move, WFTV reported. “She said very bluntly, ‘I’m not moving,’” another traveler told the station, adding that a supervisor and a pilot tried unsuccessfully to get the woman out of the 15th-row seat.
