Sexual harassment then and now.

What a difference 20-25 years makes.  Ever since the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke wide open, in the New York times no less, otherwise the libs wouldn’t have believed it, despite the fact that ‘practically everyone’ in Hollywood knew about it…for a long time.

And this has opened the floodgates.

 

And then there’s Mark Halperin.

Here’s what El Rusbo had to say.

Well we remember way back in the 20th century things were quite different. Of course if you were a Republican, conservative, Christian,  or clergymen and were caught in behavior like this you were metaphorically nailed to the cross.

But if you were a  liberal democrat in the last century especially if your name was Ted Kennedy, and your commitment in protecting abortion rights made you a feminist  superstar. With women it made you a powerful, powerful  man, and face it, women are attracted to powerful men. A few I’m sure were more then willing, perhaps considering it a duty and a privilege. Many I’m also sure were not so willing.  Remember the waitress sandwich. And what about Mary Jo Kopechne, Left to die in a tidal pool while the Rat ran away to save his ass. No Matter, This was more then the single life of one young women or the assault of many others. This a was war, casualties had to be expected.

There wasn’t a fraction of the outrage at this behavior. Ted Kennedy was lionized as an icon. After his death, there were suggestions that Mary Jo’s death was worth it.

At the Huffington Post, Melissa Lafsky mused on what Mary Jo “would have thought about arguably being a catalyst for the most successful Senate career in history . . . Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.”

No doubt

President William Jefferson Clinton was quite the pole cat, long before the infamous  Monica Lewinski scandal there were many other women. If he had been a Republican President he would have been toast.  But…the Press and Hillary roasted these women. They were sacrificed for the cause.

This is what Ms. Nina Burleigh had to say back in the nineties.

“I would be happy to give him a blowjob just to thank him for keeping abortion legal. I think American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.”[50][51] Referring to the comment in a 2007 piece for The Huffington Post, Burleigh wrote, “I said it (back in 1998, but a good quote has eternal life) because I thought it was high time for someone to tweak the white, middle-aged beltway gang taking Clinton to task for sexual harassment. These men had neither the personal experience nor the credentials to know sexual harassment when they saw it, nor to give a good goddamn about it if they did. The insidious use of sexual harassment laws to bring down a president for his pro-female politics was the context in which I spoke.”[52

They tried to give a “G-D damn about it.  But being harassed and assaulted by powerful democrats was the price women felt they had to pay for their “pro-female politics”.

Remember Al Gore and the sexual assault allegations that were made against him. You don’t?  Well he’s a man trying to save the world from climate change. Woman just take one for the team!  Shut up!

Now even George H.W. Bush has been called out for sexual assault from his wheelchair.

But Women don’t seem to be taking it anymore from seemingly powerful men regardless of political affiliation or to advance their careers.

Times have certainly changed…and it’s about time.

 

There was no mail at my house yesterday.

At first I thought that the mailman just hadn’t shown up.

Then It dawned on me that yesterday was Columbus day.  You remember that murdering white European who came to the Americas and brought nothing but death and despair to all the indigenous people of the Americas. And that despair is with them to this day. At least that is what they tell us.

Columbus is not politically correct.

So I was surprised that the Federal Government was still observing it. But it does mean a day off.

So many have stated that Columbus day should be abolished and replaced with Indigenous Peoples Day.

Well why not.

Witches against Trump

he_Wizard_of_Oz_Margaret_Hamilton

Witches rely on illusion and magic spells which is one reason the “left” loves them and wants to utilize their talents.

 

 

 

It’s in all probability that no one will be surprised that the “witch” community was thoroughly melted away after a bucket of cold water was dumped on them during the last Presidential election. After all, one of their own was going to be President of the United States. The swarm of flying monkeys news media was tasked to spread   the poison narrative that the election was in the bag.

Well Witches were not going to take this lying down so they have decided to stir the cauldron against Trump.

 

The Left ridicules Christianity, embraces the occult.

 

Thankfully a house landed on her last November.

 

 

“I hear my train a coming…It’s coming round the bend..”

From the Times Argus

WILLISTON — Vermont visionary David Blittersdorf has bad news and good news

The bad news, he says, is that the nation and world will run out of oil and face catastrophic collapse at local, national and global levels. The good news is that a combination of conservation and renewable energy sources can avert a crisis, but it will require a concerted effort — and commitment — to do so.

Blittersdorf’s latest pitch on the renewal energy front is to bring back passenger rail service in central Vermont with 1950s-era self-propelled diesel rail cars. It’s his latest salvo that has included pioneering progress in wind and solar energy programs in the state. For Blittersdorf, the writing is on the wall, but he hopes to help rewrite the dismal history of the future.

More than once, he described his plan as “Back to the Future” that will transform the way Vermonters travel while helping to cut the state’s dependence on fossil fuels and combat climate change in an effort to become 90 percent net-zero carbon free by 2050…..

————————————————————————————————————————-

He said “Peak Oil” — when demand exceeded supply — occurred in 2007, only delayed by the fracking of oil and gas for another 10-15 years, with an exponential increase in carbon emissions and untold environmental damage.

————————————————————————————————————————-

IntheAmericanempireand where we think we are, we’re going down the other side… we don’t have the resources in the future that we think we have,” Blittersdorf said. “Everyone thinks we can grow into infinity forever. Sowe’resettingourselves upfor something really bad.

————————————————————————————————————————-

“We have to start somewhere, and the efficiency gain over getting people out of cars is we can be 50 to 100 times more efficient, so we’ll cut emissions immediately, and we can do it as a reasonable price. That’s key,” Blittersdorf said.

Here is a rebuttal..

From the Ethan Allen Institute.

It is a canon of Green theology that irresponsible, selfish Americans must be taxed or subsidized out of their personal vehicles and into a group carriage like a rail car, all to save the planet from the menace of global warming.

Guess who is behind the new push for commuter rail? Mr. Green enterprise himself,  VPIRG donor David “Wind Farm” Blittersdorf. He laid out $6 million for some reconditioned rail cars from Dallas in the hope of marrying them with the state owned rail lines and stations, to whisk commuters to Burlington from Rutland and maybe Montpelier.

And here’s the inevitable kicker: Blittersdorf “readily acknowledged that he won’t get this project rolling without public or private subsidies, or both. He imagines that some of Vermont’s large employers such as UVM, Global Foundries and state government will subsidize the trains in exchange for free transit for their employees.”

Oh, really? Are Vermonters dumb enough to fall for this costly foolishness all over again?

Let me state one thing from the beginning…I love trains/railroads.  As a kid I would hear a train whistle in the distance. I would get on my bike and race down to the bridge that went over the tracks. When I would first see the head light from the locomotive then hear it’s roar I would get tense from excitement. I would wave to the engineer and he would wave back.  I would listen to the click-ity clack of the wheels and try to count the freight cars. I would then wave at the guys in the caboose (yes..it was a long time ago).

Commuter trains certainly have there place…in large populated urban centers.  of which Vermont is not one…yet.  Perhaps if we only allow another 200,000 refugees from the middle east and central America to come to Vermont for a better life, commuter trains will be a much positive asset.

When Mr. Blittersdorf and the state of Vermont work out the details I and I’m sure many others will have to check it out and take a ride just for the joy of riding the rails. And I’m sure more then a few will utilize it for regular commuting.

But I certainly doubt that it’d going to break even cost wise. And Vermont  taxpayers will be forced to watch public money used to subsidize a religion, the church of climate change.

But this is what “Progressives” consider progress.

 

 

 

What will happen when there is no more road to kick the can down?

“May you live in interesting times”  Indeed we do.  The southern U.S.  has been struck by one Major Hurricane with another tearing through  Florida. Much to the delight of the disciples of climate change who have been waiting over a decade for a big storm(s) to strike the U.S.

The evil Telly Tubby that rules North Korea has openly threatened the U.S. with an E.M.P. attack.  Such an attack would be devastating to all of North America.  How so, you might ask? Well think of 21st century America suddenly being knocked back to 1840. Think of life before electricity, refrigeration, cell phones, telephones, television, radio, automobiles et. al. When the nations aging electrical grid gets fried that’s what is going to happen. and it will not be repaired overnight. America has never experienced famine like many socialist countries have. That is how serious that can be.

Another little “can” that the legislature has constantly kicked down the road is the National debt.  And the debt ceiling it appears that it’s going to be raised again to pay for not one but two devastating  hurricanes.  Taking measures for natural disasters is one thing but this cannot go on.  The national debt is nearly 20 Trillion dollars. And lets not even talk about unfunded liabilities.

Today America is probably more divided now then at anytime since the Civil War.  For that we can thank fifty years of, hell no more like eighty years of slow insidious indoctrination of American citizens and the body politic to Marxism.

They have taken over academia, all the way down to kindergarten,  the media, down to the local level, and they have completely taken over the Democrat party. JFK would not recognized it today.

And the Republican establishment is next to worthless, loving their perks and power more then their country and its Constitution.

Together they make up the “Deep State” and their goal is to ensure that “government of the people, by the people, for the people'” does indeed perish from the earth.

Of course they call themselves “Progressives”, the progress to historical inevitability.

Coupled with the previous administrations eight years of  turning over every rock to expose the tiniest hint of racism. And if they couldn’t find it then created it out of whole cloth. Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of a color blind society is further away then ever.

We are certainly living in “interesting times”.

Yet we can try to keep things in prospective. On more then one  occasion our country has faced deep crisis.

Abraham Lincoln on the eve of a national crisis that was to become the Civil War gave reference to this fable to give him comfort.

It is said an Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him the words: “And this too shall pass away” How much it expresses! How chastening in the hour of pride! How consoling in the depths of affliction![4][5]

The American Civil War happened because the “can” was kicked to the end of the road.

Today another “end of the road” is approaching fast.  And only God knows what will happen.

 

 

Are the eyes and minds of (some) Millennials beginning to open?

A very interesting article from American thinker.

Included was this video .

And this video is not the only example. There are other “red pill” stories to see on You Tube .  For now, possibly.

The “Antifa” movement may perhaps be the best thing to happen to conservatism.  They take the position that you are either with them 100%  or else your a racist, homophobe, misogynist, non-person who deserves to have the shit kick out you.

People who consider themselves “Liberal” should take note.

First they came for the Trump supporters (ugh) But I wasn’t a Trump supporter.

Then they came for the “conservatives” (yuck) but I wasn’t a conservative.

Then they came for the “Christians” but I considered myself “enlightened”

Then they came for the “Constitution”, but I considered it antiquated, written by white slave owners.

Then they came for me…

 

It’s almost football season.

Do you like divisive politics mixed in with your pigskin.

You may not have a choice.

From American thinker

The whole thing started last year when San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat out the traditional pre-game playing of the National Anthem.  Fans, outraged that he wasn’t fired outright or at least benched under a “sit for the Anthem, sit for the game” policy, abandoned pro football in droves.  Kaepernick was released by San Francisco later in the year, and since then, no other NFL team has picked up his contract. 

Now both the NAACP on one side and pro football fans on the other are calling for a boycott of the NFL.  This has put the League in a “damned if you, damned if you don’t” situation and given it a headache of Solomonic proportions.

Read the whole thing.

By they way my friends Ski and Wayne were commenting on this subject just the other day.

What will Google do next?

 

A video from Paul Joseph Watson

Lets get down to the nitty gritty, “Google” is the internet, and “Youtube” had no real competition.

My little blog is but an insignificant minute speck in the vast universe of cyberspace. I’ve likely more eggs in my refrigerator  then I have readers. I’m only a dim red dwarf star of which they’re many, far outshined by the stars much bigger and brighter. I’m not monetized. There is no financial incentive for me to do this.  It’s something I enjoy doing when I can find the time.

I utilize Google apps. They know about my blog. But I’m such a Pissant they likely won’t bother with me.  But it is a bit disconcerting to be on a company platform that claims to be open the  free flow of ideas and opinions except those that differ from their own.

We have seen what happens when a thought criminal is discovered in their midst.
