Small sample of how academic elites work to destroy the country from within. Of course they have help from media, politicos, et al.

It is uncomfrtable living in a rural environment. Water, electricity, gas may all be difficult to obtain. Produce deserts are the norm, not the exception. Driving miles and miles for gas, limited food. Yeah, living in rural America is not the same as living in a large city with all the amenities withn walking distance. But wait, without rural America, there would be Produce deserts in urban America as well as meat, poultry and pork shortages. How important is the rural wayof living? During WW II, urban men were drafted and sent off to war. Rurual men were not drafted and had to have a good reason to be accepted as a volunteer. Why? Someone had to grow food for Americans, the world and our military.

FTA: “I unironically embrace the bashing of rural Americans. they, as a group, are bad people who have made bad life decisions. Some, I assume, are good people,” Kernion wrote in the deleted tweet. “But this nostalgia for some imagined pastoral way of life is stupid and we should shame people who aren’t pro-city.” This moron must think that the food he eats originates in the grocery store! He seems totally clueless that those same rural Americans, that he holds in utter contempt, produce the food that keeps him alive. He should put his money where his mouth is and refuse to consume anything those "bad people" produce. #stupid twit

Here’s Jackson, from Harvard, class of 2012. Another pajama boy delaying adulthood by overeducating himself while learning nothing. I all it “mental masturbation”. (A.B., cum laude, Philosophy, Harvard, 2012) Jackson is primarily interested in philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of science. He’s currently writing a dissertation on the concept of conscious experience, arguing for a certain kind of a priori functional constraint on experience. When not philosophizing, he likes to go hiking and keep up a coding hobby. https://philosophy.berkeley.edu/people/detail/358

Quick thought experiment: One day all the "rural Americans" die - would anyone notice? Easy answer: Only the people who eat food. Alternative thought experiment: One day all Berkeley philosophy majors die, would anyone even notice? Easy answer: Nope, only their families would notice, no adverse effects on the country. A good case could be made for the obvious beneficial effects.

We aren't the ones who choose to live in filth like all the urbanites do. We prefer self sufficiency, clean air, water and not being bothered by carpies like that instructor. Who probably isn't even a tenured professor. I wonder if they realize that it is us fly over folks who can survive in either environment, while the urbanites think they need a passport to come visit. Good luck surviving if it really gets bad food supply and banking wise.

A majority of registered voters believe President Trump will win again in 2020. A new Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 56 percent of all voters said Trump will be re-elected next year. The president obviously has an edge with Republicans, with 85 percent saying a Trump 2.0 is happening. But a majority of independents - 51 percent - agreed. Even a third of Democrats, 35 percent, said they believed there would be four more years of President Trump.

But at the end of the game, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett got into an altercation unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my decades of watching football.

She even found him guilty of confessing to bribery. Who knew Pelosi, at her advanced age, could perform so many contortions?

In Clinton’s view Britain’s first prime minister did not do enough to knock down “barriers for others.” The former Democratic presidential nominee did give a nod to Thatcher’s willingness to change the way she dressed, spoke and wore her hair, alluding to one of the most dramatic makeovers in 20th century politics.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.
