Stay Angry, Not Dispirited

Like baboons showing their rears to zoogoers, the election of President Trump caused the rotting institutions of America to reveal their least attractive features. The press has engaged in nonstop lying without remorse. The premier educational institutions have revealed their Marxist colors and disdain for the sifting and winnowing of ideas that once were their reason to be. The FBI, Department of Justice, and the courts have tipped their partisanship, and to their dishonor, the ethical grounding that once made them worthy of respect.

If you tell me 'Pieces' refers to excerpts from sources elsewhere, I'll believe you. If you tell me 'Pieces' refers to piece as in article or column, then it must be pointed out that 10,011 of the 14,887 characters in this, er, piece are from other sites. Fully 67% or 2/3. In college we called it boilerplate. A cynical shortcut to reaching a prescribed length for a term paper. Like a pair of our favorite radio hosts, initials RL and ML, some authors seem to be under the impression that the rest of us lack internet service, that we don't read voraciously and are already familiar with the items quoted at length, and that they should reprint or recite verbatim that which most of us have already seen.

Thanks for the comment, #1. May I point out that by my math, of all the items posted on Lucianne, roughly, um, 100 per cent or so have already appeared elsewhere. Yet still we come here. Selecting the best of what you call boilerplate, then compiling it coherently and adding her marvelous commentary makes Clarice's Pieces well worth the space devoted to them.

Really? Did you actually count all the characters in this article? How long did that take? What did your comment have to do with the context? Think we have a troll here.

Everyone does not have the time to read voraciously. I skim headlines, or even read the comments here before deciding whether or not to read an article. Nothing annoys me more than a comment which has nothing to do with the content of the article. I appreciated Clarice Feldman's recap of several opinions that seemingly have little to do with one another but support her main point which is do not be discouraged with all that is going on but do not be complacent. I normally don't read Conrad Black, so I enjoyed the description of Biden as a "waxwork dummy."

If the shocked look on the media's faces when Trump won in 2016 were priceless, imagine the looks on the faces of those in the media when Trump wins again this year. Full scale on air hissy fits will be the norm. After the virus and riots BS of this year, watching the media talking heads try to remain calm and report another Trump win will be worth it.

Regardless of the source, these are words of wisdom and encouragement. While some may have become "dispirited" I am taking a perverse pleasure in watching the Leftist rebellion blow up in their faces. Like the CHOP/CHAZ idiocy, things are falling apart all over the place. They boast of defunding the police while having it demonstrated to them every day how much the absence of police creates a gap for rising violence, murder and general lawlessness. No matter how much Leftists deny it, they are finding that a disproportionate number of blacks just can't get along with each other and, well, anybody. If we all gave them our homes, our cars the choice jobs in the country or outright gifts of cash, society would quickly devolve into what we see in our democrat inner city neighborhoods today, crime and chaos. Until they stop the violence and accept the fact that serious education is the only way to progress there will be no peace for anybody. Way out here in flyover country, we country bumpkins have not been exposed to much of the rioting but there is not a single home out here that is not armed to the teeth and prepared to repel all boarders who have bad intentions. If they find a need to bring a warrant to my home to confiscate my guns it will be because they have been used vigorously to defend my family. None of this show-and-tell at the front door stuff.

The mantra about white superiority is a dog whistle to the left. I do know one thing though; I AM superior to the BLM thugs, and so are all good people of color! Anyone who thinks America is bad, and other governments are better for their lives, is mentally and morally deficient!

Clarice Feldman's articles are my first read on Sunday mornings, as are Kimberley Strassel's columns in the Wall St. Journal every Friday morning. That Clarice quotes two or three of the most insightful columns of the week is no sensible criticism of her. In this case, I had missed both the Conrad Black and the Julie Kelly columns. Both are outstanding. The quoted material from Julie Kelly includes a link to her column from Friday, July 3, "Sheep in Elephant Costumes." I recommend anyone who may have missed it click on the link in Clarice's article. Both it and Conrad Black's article deserve be be read in their totality. Some of us remain employed and have neither the time nor the inclination to pore over every opinion appearing each week in a multiplicity of online sources. I for one appreciate those who aggregate the best insights into one article or site. Indeed, that is the purpose of Lucianne's site.

Of all the institutions that disappointed me this past year, the world of medicine really wins the prize. i will never trust them again, and that includes my primary. I believe the motivation for everything we''re told about this pandemic is what's in it for them. When anyone outside the club voices a different opinion, they're quickly muzzled. This kind of stuff probably always went on, but now it's in our face.

The dems are not running a presidential campaign, the media is, with a cardboard cutout of Uncle Joe as the nominal candidate. Effectively, the media has BECOME a political party with the dems under their wing. In taking on this role, the media has abdicated their responsibilities to the American People for factually and openly reporting the news. This has actually been true for a long time but the media pretended that they were unbiased. Now, all bets are off. Getting Trump is the ONLY priority. They have said it themselves. They can ignore news, lie about it, and make stuff up. It's all good according to them. Of course their credibility is stretching toward zero as well. They ARE enemies of the People. They ARE, along with their incorporated dems, " a significant threat to you, your family, and your country.".

Even before anyone ever heard of Hunter Biden’s laptop, Democrats were facing a marketing challenge unknown in the era of moving images: selling a candidate that no one -- with the possible exception of Jill “Edith Wilson” Biden -- could possibly be enthused about.

In early August, the first kids in America went back to school during the pandemic. Many of these openings happened in areas where cases were high or growing: in Georgia, Indiana, Florida. Parents, teachers, and scientists feared what might happen next. (Snip) We are starting to get an evidence-based picture of how school reopenings and remote learning are going (those photos of hallways don’t count), and the evidence is pointing in one direction.

The announcement was made in Oslo by Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chair of the Nobel Committee.

Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), President Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview.

Joe Biden’s quick trip to Pittsburgh and his speech there Monday condemning urban violence show Democrats now recognize they made a major mistake in ignoring the problem at their convention. They’ve read the polls and finally realize voters care about the arson, shootings, and looting -- and their own safety. That’s a problem for the Biden campaign, which had almost nothing to say about the violence all summer. Now, they are doing “cleanup on Aisle 6” and there’s a lot of broken glass around.

Members of the Biden family allegedly had a specific system for distributing the money they earned through influence peddling, President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani revealed on Wednesday. According to a smoking gun text on Hunter Biden’s hard drive, members of “the Biden crime family” were expected to give half of their profits to “pop”—aka Joe Biden. Several members of the Biden’s clan, including his brother James Biden, his sister-in-law Sara, and his son Hunter, landed lucrative positions or contracts with foreign countries while Joe Biden was a U.S. senator as well as when he served as vice president.

Almost as one, they have rushed to Twitter to hyperventilate about handmaidens and slavery, all of it nonsense.

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Joe Biden's presidential campaign said Thursday that vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will suspend in-person events until Monday after two people associated with the campaign tested positive for coronavirus. The campaign said Biden had no exposure, though he and Harris spent several hours campaigning together in Arizona on Oct. 8. Harris was scheduled to travel Thursday to North Carolina for events encouraging voters to cast early ballots. The campaign told reporters Thursday morning that Harris' communications director and a traveling staff member for her travel to Arizona tested positive after that Oct. 8 trip.

The English department at Cornell University has voted to change its name in an effort to distinguish English the language from English the nationality. The department at the Ivy League university in New York voted to change its name to “the department of literatures in English” during its first faculty meeting of the fall semester earlier this month, the student-led Cornell Daily Sun reported Wednesday. The change would help to eliminate the “conflation of English as a language and English as a nationality,” English professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies Kate McCullough told the newspaper.
