And then in 2024 ...

The latest Rasmussen poll shows former President Donald J. Trump beating Biden by a 10-point landslide and beating Kamala Harris by 13 points.

As Winston Churchill said, "Never give in, never give in, never, never, never."

Never give up. Keep the faith. The cavalry is coming!

Just this week, a whistleblower reported China intentionally released COVID-19 at the Wuhan Military Games in October of 2019.

So, maybe, just maybe this whole vaccine mandate disaster is "made in China." Dividing America, weakening our economy, gutting our military and creating a shortage of frontline first responders is a dream come true for China.

This is how China wins WWIII without firing a shot.

As a nationally syndicated radio host, I get thousands of emails a week. The ones I'm getting right now are downright tragic. I'm getting heartfelt letters of anguish from police officers, firefighters, paramedics, nurses, corrections officers, active-duty military, military fighter jet pilots, even Navy SEALs.

They're all getting ready to quit or be fired because of vaccine mandates. They do not want the vaccine. Even if they have to give up their pensions. Even if they are one year away from retirement and a six-figure pension.

They've studied the vaccine. They know the dangers. They know it's crippling, killing and weakening the immune systems of millions of Americans. They've seen the Project Veritas undercover videos of U.S. government health care workers admitting the COVID-19 vaccine is killing and injuring Americans -- and admitting our government is covering it up.

The Government and CDC Are Lying About COVID-19 Vaccine and Ivermectin; The Question Is Why?

It's been quite a week. I've been in the media business for decades and I've never before witnessed such lies, exaggeration and outright fraud. All with the intent to force everyone to be vaccinated. The question is why?

Let's start with the vaccine itself. The results in Israel prove what a sham, charade and fraud this all is. The U.S. government and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention argue that the vaccine is our only chance to survive. And that people are hospitalized and dying with COVID-19 because they are unvaccinated.

Both arguments are pure fraud.

First, are you aware that anyone who dies within 14 days of getting vaccinated is considered "unvaccinated"? No wonder they claim everyone who is dying is unvaccinated. If you die from COVID-19, whether you're vaccinated or unvaccinated, they just call you unvaccinated.

If a businessperson in the private sector tried that scam, they'd spend the next 20 years in prison for fraud.

The CDC has also been using stats of COVID-19 deaths going back to January to make the claim that the deaths are almost exclusively among the unvaccinated. That's because earlier in the year almost everyone was unvaccinated. That's called rigging the numbers. The CDC must be using the same Democrats who rigged and stole the 2020 election.

Wayne Allyn Root #conspiracy #fundie #wingnut townhall.com

You think I'm exaggerating? I've only seen one poll made public on this topic. In San Diego, 65% of the cops say they'll quit rather than take the vaccine.

It turns out my educated guess is low.

What happens when one-third of the military quits? How about one-third of fighter jet pilots? How about one-third of Navy SEALs? Who is going to defend America? This is the greatest national security threat in history.

Our national defense will be a shambles. China can just sit back and watch us self-destruct. Did you ever think maybe that's the plan?

Wayne Allyn Root #conspiracy #fundie #wingnut townhall.com

The bad news is that the country is on fire, thanks to the brain-dead, feeble, old man with dementia (aka President Joe Biden). If you don't believe me, just see the 14,000 Haitian migrants hiding under a bridge in Texas, now released into America by Biden. That should help the COVID-19 pandemic.

But the worst is yet to come. I'm referring to Biden's vaccine mandate. This is the most dangerous threat to our national security in history.

The Radical Communist Takeover of Our Country: America is Finished ... Unless We Move Quickly

I'm one of the few people in America who can explain exactly what's happening to America. This is a full-scale assault. A radical communist takeover of our country: our government agencies; our justice system; our borders; our schools and colleges; our police and military; and our economy.

And don't forget our voting system. It's now completely rigged by Democrat-coordinated voter fraud – build around a foundation of mail-in ballots with no voter ID; printing your own ballots at home; ballot harvesting; no signature verification; counting ballots for days after the election; and millions of noncitizens voting with the driver's licenses Democrats demanded they get from the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Exhibit A is the California recall election that just ended last week. It was rigged from the get-go. Larry Elder never had a chance. California Democrats just conducted a test run of the expanded plan. It worked to perfection.

As first responders, many have seen the carnage up close and personal. They see the vaccine-injured every day in the emergency room or intensive care unit.

The mainstream media is blacking out this story like it's on Hunter Biden's laptop. But the number of first responders who quit, retire or get fired will be shocking. The damage to our country will be devastating.

Think about it. These are the frontline defenders of America. What if one-third of cops resign? One-third of the firemen? One-third of the nurses? One-third of prison guards? Good luck.

Wayne Allyn Root #conspiracy #fundie #wingnut townhall.com

Let me explain what's about to happen. About 50% of America hasn't taken the vaccine. That's no coincidence. Somewhere between 40% and 50% of America is never taking the vaccine. No matter what you say or do, the answer is still NO. We will not comply.

The reasons are simple. First, choice. "It's my body, my choice." Where have I heard that before?

Second, we know when someone says, "I'm from the government and I'm here to help," run away as fast and far as you can get. We don't trust anything Big Brother is selling.

Third, we've seen the numbers of dead and injured from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System vaccine injury report. The carnage is unimaginable.

Fourth, we've watched the videos of brilliant M.D.s, virologists, pathologists and scientists explaining how this deadly vaccine causes massive inflammation, resulting in heart inflammation, heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, autoimmune disease and worse -- death.

Lastly, and most importantly, we all know scores of friends, family and co-workers who took the jab and wound up dead or badly injured soon thereafter.

Wayne Allyn Root #conspiracy #fundie #wingnut townhall.com

Think about New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. No more conservative tourists. That's half the tourists in your city or state -- gone.

No more tourists from Texas or Florida, places with millions of unvaccinated citizens, where vaccine mandates are forbidden by law. Just those two states together have 50 million citizens. That's millions of potential tourists never again coming to NYC, LA, San Francisco or New Orleans.

Is Vegas the next city to commit economic suicide?

This isn't just about conservatives. Many doctors and nurses I know want nothing to do with the jab. Large portions of black and Latino citizens don't want the jab either. Lots of people don't want that jab. And if you demand vaccine passports to get into any business, you've just lost all that revenue. Good luck.

Few businesses in America will survive. Mass economic devastation is coming. The Great Depression of all depressions could be coming. Could anarchy and civil war be far behind?

Is this the Democrat plan? Are they really suicidal? Are they doing the bidding of the Chinese Communist Party? Or are they just that dumb?

NY, LA and SF Just Committed Suicide; Is Vegas Next? The Suicide of America

Call this suicide by Democrat.

We have suicide bombers in the White House. We have suicide bombers in our governor's mansions. Worst of all, we have suicide bombers directing the U.S. economy.

This is the Titanic. This is the Hindenburg. We are headed for disaster.

New York City now demands vaccine passports to go into any restaurant, bar, nightclub, gym -- even retail store. Los Angeles followed suit. So did San Francisco and New Orleans. How many more will follow?

Las Vegas, my home, the entertainment capital of the world, isn't far behind. You now need proof of vaccination to enter concerts, conventions, even Allegiant Stadium, the home of the NFL's Las Vegas Raiders. Will restaurants, gyms and retail stores be far behind?

This is madness. This is economic suicide. Either Democrats are ignorant morons, or this is the final Democrat plan to destroy capitalism by putting every business owner out of business. After all, this is what socialists, Marxists, communists and globalist America-haters have been waiting their whole lives for.

Wayne Allyn Root #conspiracy #fundie #wingnut townhall.com

So, we're not taking the vaccine. At least not for another few years after we've seen the final results (or the final carnage). We don't trust this jab. "My body, my choice."

Also, we're not that gullible. We're not willing to inject a potentially dangerous jab into our bodies because government is handing out lottery tickets, free booze, free pot or a free trip to a casino.

So, think about what this all means. If government is dumb enough to demand vaccine passports, that means 40% to 50% of us won't eat at restaurants, or go to bars and nightclubs, or concerts, or conventions, or sports events. We won't buy anything at your retail stores anymore.

Which means everyone is out of business. No business in America can take a 20% loss of sales, let alone 30%, or 40%, or 50%. They're all out of business. Which means tens of millions of Americans will lose their jobs. Total economic collapse will soon follow.

The Strong Man Populist coming soon will not have that weakness. He will not hesitate to use his power to clean house, to prosecute the criminals, to defeat our enemies, both foreign and domestic. Some Republicans will recoil in horror at the idea of us actually winning. “We can’t abandon our fundamental norms,” they will fret, and that’s literally true. We can’t abandon our fundamental norms because the establishment these shills flack for already abandoned our fundamental norms over the last five years. Zombie norms will not restrain the Strong Man Populist.

He will unleash the power of “No.”

No, hobos, you can’t live on our streets.

No, criminals, you don’t get to commit crimes.

No, Pentagon, you are going to focus on winning wars.

No, academia, you do not get to take our money and use it to turn our kids into little commie saps.

No, tech jerks, you do not get to decide what we can read and say.

No, climate cultists, we are not going to live in caves because of your bizarre, quasi-religious weather obsession.

No, media, you do not get to be partisan advocates and also treated like neutral truth tellers.

No, Democrats, you don’t get to steal elections.

No.

“No” is the weapon of the Strong Man Populist; it is our weapon. It is a rejection of elite hegemony, and the ruthless use of power to enforce it. And it is coming.

The establishment should have heeded the warning that was Donald Trump. But if it was smart enough to do that, it never would have botched its cultural curation so spectacularly that it made him necessary.

The best part of the coming Strong Man Populism will be watching them cry.

Democrats Are Truly Sick People

It’s times like this I regret not being able to really let loose with the language in this column because what the Democrats have become is truly disgusting. Every time you think they’ve gone as low as humanly possible, they break out a shovel. There is no bottom to hit when you will literally do anything to win. This election isn’t about power for the next few years. It’s about the type of existence we’re going to have from this election forward. Once you go over a cliff gravity always wins.

The idea of a Biden presidency is a scary proposition.

Please no women justices.

Without women voting the Democrat party wouldn’t exist. Pelosi and AOC represent most women.

While women neglect husbands homes and children, they are increasingly involved in politics, muddling the system up.

Women getting the vote has resulted in them being raped, molested, abused, and enslaved at the highest rates in American history,

Giving women the vote was a clever ploy by the bankers to give shift authority over women from husbands to Daddy Gubmint. The welfare state followed soon after.

miata2006: You can't "take" owners (whoever they are) of the Federal Reserve and execute them. What a ridiculous thing to write. They would have to be charged with a crime, defended in court, found guilty (of something) and sent to prison. We don't execute for anything except actual murder. Please don't write nonsense like that. Write about things that can actually happen, that can be done under our judicial system.

Silence DoGood: You certainly can.

They are some of the biggest murderers in human history, and are behind both World Wars, and Communism. They operate in Generations, so blame is difficult to assign.

Instead of talking so much, go read the book that details the Federal Reserve beginning, “Creature from Jekyll Island”, and the hundreds of books in its bibliography.

Silence DoGood: Not a fan of Islam at all. Of the three Abrahamic religions, Christianity is the most peaceful and protective of individual rights, while Islam is a distant second, and Talmudic Judaism, the driving factor behind Communism, is the biggest murder operation in world history, with 100 million dead in a century.

Between Judaism and Islam, 350 million have been slaughtered in the last 1,400 years.

Blair: "Talmudic Judaism, the driving factor behind Communism..."

Uh, I think you mean atheism. Both Stalin and Hitler exterminated Jews, using them paradoxically as scapegoats for their own regressive policies. Both went on to persecute Christianity and other religions (which didn't acknowledge the supremacy of the State) as well. Same thing with China, who even picked on Muslims and Buddhists.

Silence DoGood: No, Talmudic Judaism.

The Talmudic Jews resorted to atheism and Communism, but they were raised Talmudic Jews.

Nothing new. This is why Titus destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D. The Romans were tired of the Talmudic Jewish plots to rule the world. Many Jews oppose Israel and Communism, and the dirty truth is, both were funded and backed by the same bankers.

The Talmudic backers of Hitler and Stalin, lost control of both of them. And they even funded the destruction of their fellow Jews.

But, when the Bolsheviks took over Russia, it was Christian churches being destroyed, not synagogues.

Cui Bono,

Follow the money.

Anthony Sutton has many great books accurately detailing how the Talmudic owners of the Federal Reserve funded Communism and Hitler.

They weren’t born homosexual. If you read “Sexual Sabotage” and “After the Ball”, you’ll discover the propaganda and lies used to normalize homosexuality, which is a Cultural Marxist victim group.

You hate homosexuals, because you approve of a behavior that is destroying them and the nation. You’re bigoted against God, morality, Christ, the Bible, and virtue. Shameful.

The fact homosexuality was illegal in 1776, is entirely relevant, though not to you, since you are charging into a conversation with your nonsensical propaganda and have done zero serious independent research on the topic in your life. You need to keep your mouth SHUT on topics you’ve never educated yourself on, thoroughly.

Where did you get the idea that your opinion and that of other people comes before the opinion of natural law, and the nature’s God, which is where our rights come from, according to the Declaration of Independence? We are not a Democracy, and morality isn’t subject to decisions of voters and judges. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

...This is why people who are wise, NEVER SPEAK ON TOPICS THEY HAVE NOT EXHAUSTIVELY STUDIED WITH AUTHORITY. If you get nothing else from this conversation, that lesson alone can revolutionize your life. And you’re getting it for free. However, tens of millions of Americans despise free wisdom, and prefer to be deceived and brainwashed in colleges and by “experts” for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Which five biographies [of America's Founders] did you read? Name them, please. Of course they didn’t discuss homosexuality, no one back then was as insane as you are. They all understood it was a severe crime against nature.

...Without objective standards like the Bible and Constitution, corrupt men like you would be tyrants. “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” as Lord Acton said.

The Founders' ideas on the Constitution are easily deciphered. You can type up “Apologist Press, Founders, homosexuality” in any search engine and the link with their views will come up.

All the guns and armies in the world can’t defy God, and by pushing your absurd “rights” that have harmed women greatly, you are fighting with the Creator. Good luck with your losing battle.

...

So, you fight to vote, and can’t even think critically. Your emotion overwhelms your reason. Besides, 70% of single women vote Democrat, and the majority of married women do too. Without women voting there would be no Democrat party. It’s a nice game of the plutocrats, who weaken the family by discouraging women from getting married and having children. Makes us easy to control. Demography is destiny. While women like you are stubbornly fighting for the right to vote, you are stupidly neglecting your primary function, which is to marry and reproduce. And the bankers are laughing at you, as they make fortunes, and destroy America.

Today’s insane Democrat party is based on women being emotionally manipulated to vote Democrat. You are stupid if you think the Democrat party prior to women getting the vote is anything similar to today’s Democrat party.

Yes, because when women stubbornly divorce men, as 80% of divorces are initiated by women, that leads to single mother households, and angry criminal men, who mistreat women. It’s encouraged by the Government, as they throw welfare at you women to replace your husbands with Daddy Gubmint. Millions of silly women think that’s a great idea. Then they complain about why their children are so dysfunctional.

You can’t name a single movie or television show from 1980 on where a woman married a man and stayed home and had as many children as she could. Why? Because the bankers who control the media know that stable families would end their control. Wake up!

Men like me avoid poisonous women like you like the plague. You are hell to be around.

Our Invisible Goverment, which took control of the Democrat party in 1912, which owns the Federal Reserve, the media, schools, tech companies, has been behind Communism and its 100 million dead, owns Hollyweird, funds the ACLU, BLM, SPLC, ADL, and is behind the virus, is to blame for this.

These evil and cowardly snakes hate us, because, despite all their power, they have to remain anonymous in the shadows or the game is up.

Solution is to take the less than 5,000 owners of the Federal Reserve, protected by hordes of lackeys and mercenaries, and execute them for mass murder.

The Democrat party will immediately collapse, as will the Federal Reserve, BLM, Communism, the media, social ravages like p*rn, abortion, homosexuality, and contraception, Foreign world wars, and so much more.

Of course, clever snakes, they have armies of anonymous liars, who run around libeling any who call out the puppetmasters as “Vile anti-semites”.

Ben Shapiro #wingnut townhall.com

[Yes, it’s from 2002. I am not letting this kind of nonsense go.]

I am getting really sick of people who whine about “civilian casualties.” Maybe I'm a hard-hearted guy, but when I see in the newspapers that civilians in Afghanistan or the West Bank were killed by American or Israeli troops, I don’t really care. In fact, I would rather that the good guys use the Air Force to kill the bad guys, even if that means some civilians get killed along the way. One American soldier is worth far more than an Afghan civilian. For the past decade, the United States and Israel have been attempting to prove their moral superiority by attempting to minimize civilian casualties. That’s all well and good. Unfortunately, this policy also means that politicians put our soldiers in harm’s way in order to save “non-combatants.”

The New York Times reported on July 21 that “Flaws in U.S. Air War Left Hundreds of Civilians Dead” in Afghanistan. In its own, unique “objective” style, the Times noted: “the American air campaign in Afghanistan, based on a high-tech, out-of-harm’s-way strategy, has produced a pattern of mistakes that have killed hundreds of Afghan civilians.” The New York Times and other news services call both Afghan “non-combatants” and American “non-combatants” civilians. This is disingenuous. American civilians are people who go about their daily lives without providing cover for terrorists or giving them money. Afghan civilians are not. Take, for example, the “wedding party” in Afghanistan that made front-page news after being strafed by American warplanes. The American pilots claimed that they came under fire from the wedding party. The Afghan interim government claimed that 48 civilians were killed in the attack and that the Americans had never come under fire. Perhaps, they suggested, the pilots were confused by Afghans firing their guns in the air in celebration. Whom do you believe? The American pilots, who say they were fired upon and respected the rules of engagement? Or the Afghan “civilians,” who claim that American pilots were bored and decided to have target practice with women, children and goats? I believe the Americans. The Afghans tolerated and supported the Taliban for years, no matter what President Bush says. A group doesn’t conquer 95 percent of a country unless it has some support among the populace. The Afghans are fundamentalist Muslims.

Kurt Schlitler #racist #wingnut townhall.com

We should all be ready to do our duty as American citizens and, when duty calls, each of us should embrace our inner Rooftop Korean.

The year was 1992, 27 years ago right about now, and the city was Los Angeles. Several police officers who got into a videotaped brawl with a petty criminal named Rodney King were acquitted of beating him up. The city exploded. It was chaos.
I was a first-year law student, back a year from the Gulf War, and I had just joined the California Army National Guard. My unit was the 3rd Battalion, 160th Infantry, and we got called up early the first night and were on the streets for three long weeks. Making it even more delightful was the fact that the unit was in Inglewood, which was pretty much on fire. They burned most everything around, except our armory – that would have gone badly for them – and the Astro Burger.
My battalion commander grabbed then-First Lieutenant Schlichter, and we went all over the city in his humvee as he led his deployed and dispersed troops. Our soldiers came, in large part, from the areas most effected by the riots, and they were notably unpleasant to the thugs and criminals who quickly discovered our guys had no patience for nonsense. One dummy discovered that the hard way when he tried to run over some Guard soldiers from another battalion; he had a closed casket funeral.
The city went insane. Order simply ceased to exist. It was Lord of the Flies. I remember a cop totally breaking down because everything was completely out of control.
But I had a M16A1 – a real assault rifle – and I had a bunch of buddies with M16A1s. The regular folks … not so much. The decent people of LA were terrified, and with good reason. See, the dirty little secret of civilization is that it’s designed to maintain order when 99.9% of folks are orderly. But, say, if just 2% of folks stop playing by the rules…uh oh. Say LA’s population was 15 million in 1992…that’s 300,000 bad guys. There were maybe 20,000 cops in all the area agencies then, plus 20,000 National Guard soldiers and airman, plus another 10,000 active soldiers and Marines the feds brought in. Law enforcement is based on the concept that most people will behave and that the crooks will be overwhelmed by sheer numbers of officers. But in the LA riots, law enforcement was massively outnumbered. Imposing order took time.
And until then, our citizens were on their own, at the mercy of the mob. Betting that the cavalry was going to come save you was a losing bet.
LA’s Korean shopkeepers knew that. They operated many small businesses in some of the least fashionable areas of Los Angeles, and they were already widely hated by activists, being scapegoated for problems and pathologies that long pre-dated their immigration to Southern California. So, they became targets for the mobs.
Bad decision by the mobs.
See, most of these Koreans had done their mandatory service in the Republic of Korea’s Army. Those ROK soldiers are the real deal – the Norks are not a theoretical threat and the South Korean army does not spend a lot of time talking about feelings. They were some solid dudes. So, when the local dirtbags showed up for some casual looting, they noticed the rooftops were lined with hardcore guys packing some serious heat, including the kind of scary rifles that the Democrats want to ban.
The Rooftop Koreans.
It did not take long for the bad guys to realize that the Rooftop Koreans were not playing games – they were playing for keeps. The mob went away in search of softer targets.
There’s a lesson there.
Our first responders are awesome, but it takes nothing away from their heroism to point out that the title “first responder” is a misnomer. The citizens on site are the first responders. And they should be ready to respond. We all should. Personally.
Some duties of citizen should never be outsourced. If you are an able-bodied adult, it’s your duty to know how to stop the bleeding and give CPR until the pros who do it for a living arrive. And it’s your duty (and right) to defend yourself, your family, your community and your Constitution. With guns – effective guns, which sometimes means your concealed pistol and sometimes means the guns that those who want you defenseless call “assault weapons.”

Ban them? We should insist non-felon adult, able-bodied citizens own them and become proficient with them because all that law and order you see around you can disappear in a heartbeat. I watched it happen up close and personal, in one of America’s biggest cities. And as the Rooftop Koreans recognized, groups of citizens with (preferably) semi-auto rifles with 30-rounds mag is the only thing that is going to keep a mob in check.
It’s your duty to be prepared to defend our community. Your duty. Yes, being a citizen of a free country is sometimes hard. Too bad. Tighten up and be ready and able to pick up a weapon. Whether it’s a riots and disaster, or whether it’s some scumbag who decides to shoot up your house of worship or a shopping mall, it’s on you.
You have a job to do when chaos comes – no shirking your responsibility and outsourcing it to the local police or the Army. Being a citizen is not a spectator sport.

Now, the left does not see things that way. The mere idea of a good guy with a gun makes them wet themselves. The left hates the notion that we citizens might take personal ownership of, and responsibility for, the security of our own country – that we might act like citizens. See, citizens are unruly. Stubborn. Uppity. We’re hard to control at the best of times. Armed, 300 million of us are impossible to control, unless we consent to it.
Now, the Founders, who enshrined the natural right of free men to keep and bear arms in our Bill of Rights preceded only by the rights of free speech and freedom of religion, knew this. To them, an armed citizenry that is prepared, mentally and logistically, to respond to threats to the people is a feature.
To the liberal elite, it is a bug.
The elite wants serfs, not citizens. It recognizes the threat in our possession of modern weaponry. But it’s not a threat of us causing evil but of us quelling it. An armed people is a free people, and a free people demands its rights and its say in its own governance. Liberals talk about “gun control,” but what the really want is total control.
Of us.
There are two models to which Americans can aspire. One is to be citizens, armed and sovereign. The other is to be serfs, disarmed and obedient to their liberal elite overlords. Choose wisely.
Choose to be a Rooftop Korean.

The Democrats are said to be the party of Jim Crow, black codes, and the Ku Klux Klan—but it’s the GOP that’s racist, or something. These historical debates get the Left and Right going on social media. Yet, a new study just slays the whole notion that liberalism is averse to racism. It’s the seat of irony. The report found that white liberals dumb themselves down while interacting with minorities in order to get along with them (via Yale Insights):
Racial bias can put people of color at a disadvantage when interviewing for a job, buying a house, or interacting with the police. New research suggests that bias may also shape daily interactions between racial minorities and white people, even those whites who tend to be less biased.
According to new research by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at Yale SOM, white liberals tend to downplay their own verbal competence in exchanges with racial minorities, compared to how other white Americans act in such exchanges. The study is scheduled for publication in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
While many previous studies have examined how people who hold racial bias behave in multi-racial settings, few have studied how whites who are more well-intentioned interact with people of other races. “There’s less work that explores how well-intentioned whites try to get along with racial minorities,” Dupree says. “We wanted to know their strategies for increasing connections between members of different social groups—and how effective these strategies are.”
Dupree and her co-author, Susan Fiske of Princeton University, began by analyzing the words used in campaign speeches delivered by Democratic and Republican presidential candidates to different audiences over the years. They scanned 74 speeches delivered by white candidates over a 25-year period. Approximately half were addressed to mostly-minority audiences—at a Hispanic small business roundtable discussion or a black church, for example. They then paired each speech delivered to a mostly-minority audience with a comparable speech delivered at a mostly-white audience—at a mostly-white church or university, for example. The researchers analyzed the text of these speeches for two measures: words related to competence (that is, words about ability or status, such as “assertive” or “competitive”) and words related to warmth (that is, words about friendliness, such as “supportive” and “compassionate”).
[…]
The team found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches delivered to mostly minority audiences than they did in speeches delivered to mostly white audiences.
Gee—I wonder why white liberals feel the need to dumb themselves down in front of non-whites. Is it because they find them…incompetent? That appears to be the case (via Washington Times):

“It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle but persistent effect,” Ms. Dupree said. “Even if it’s ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing.”
The study flies in the face of a standard talking point of the political left—that white conservatives are racist—while raising questions about whether liberals are perpetuating racial stereotypes about blacks being less competent than whites.

The researchers then set up an experiment in which white liberals were asked to respond to hypothetical individuals named “Emily” and “Lakisha.”
“[L]iberal individuals were less likely to use words that would make them appear highly competent when the person they were addressing was presumed to be black rather than white,” said the release. “No significant differences were seen in the word selection of conservatives based on the presumed race of their partner.”
Ms. Dupree said the “competence downshift” could indicate a greater eagerness by white liberals to connect with those of other races.
“My hope is that this work will help include well-intentioned people who see themselves as allies but who may be unwittingly contributing to group divides,” said Ms. Dupree. “There is a broader need to include them in the conversation.”
Still, a white liberal making him (or her) seem dumb because they find the non-white they’re interacting with less competent. That seems…pretty racist.

justdale: How does a muslim get to be the mayor of London? Terror attacks didn't become part of living in a big city until muslims started migrating to Europe and the U.S.

Duddly Doright: The answer to your question is "Democracy". When the Muslims moved in the infidel's wisely moved out, thus London is majority Muslim.

They hate you.

Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.

You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn.

Crazy talk? Just ask them. Go ahead. Go on social media. Find a leftist – it’s easy. Just say something positive about America or Jesus and they’ll come swarming like locusts. Engage them and very quickly they will drop their masks and tell you what they really think. I know. I keep a rapidly expanding file of Twitter leftist death wish screenshots.

They will tell you that Christians are idiots and vets are scum.

That normals are subhumans whose role is to labor as serfs to subsidize the progressive elite and its clients.

That you should die to make way for the New Progressive Man/Woman/Other.

Last week many of us were disgusted to learn Planned Parenthood is harvesting and selling body parts from aborted children. As the largest provider of abortion in America, Planned Parenthood is part of the problem, on the “supply” side. But as we all learned in Econ 101, there’s both supply and demand. What’s behind the demand for abortion? A major factor is the breakdown of the family. And the Supreme Court’s ruling to redefine marriage is only taking us further down that road, putting even more unborn children at risk. After all redefining marriage redefines parenthood.

The best protectors of unborn children are a strong marriage culture and people who take the virtue of chastity seriously. But the new consent-based view of marriage reduces marriage to a mere contract and it makes a culture of chastity harder to foster. And, as I explain in my new book, without a culture of chastity, we will never have a pro-life culture.

Indeed, both the pro-choice movement and the movement to redefine marriage reduce human community to contract and consent and limit our obligations to other human beings to those we have freely chosen. Consider their slogans: “My body, my choice.” “I consented to sex, not to having a baby!” “Love makes a marriage.” “Marriage should last as long as the love lasts.” They all reflect the belief that consenting adults should do whatever they want to do, a belief that puts adult desire before the needs of children. And weakening marriage will lead to a culture with more nonmarital sex, thus more nonmarital pregnancy, and sadly more abortion.

Redefining marriage will also increase the use of assisted reproductive technologies. The movement to redefine marriage insists that there are “no differences” between the marital union of husband and wife and the union of two people of the same sex, yet a same-sex couple cannot conceive a child naturally. To achieve full “marriage equality,” then, it will be necessary to turn to modern technology. Same-sex couples must use assisted reproductive technologies—with the assistance of sperm donors, egg donors, surrogate wombs, etc.—so they can “have children of their own.”

Either way, what (Obama) fails to realize is that there are plenty of former homosexuals, some of whom are no longer same-sex attracted, some of whom have seen a great reduction in those attractions, and others of whom have broken free from homosexual relationships and are very happy with the present state of their lives, despite being same-sex attracted.

I know quite a few of them personally, I have watched some of their lives for years, and they are fulfilled, whole, healthy, and joyful people – and a good number of them received great help through professional counseling.

How dare the president of the United States seek to forbid young people from receiving such positive counseling. And remember: We’re talking about counseling they want to receive, not counseling they are being forced to receive.

It is well-known that many of those who identify as homosexual and bisexual were sexually abused as children, and sometimes, they can trace their gay or bisexual feelings back to that abuse.

Yet the president wants to tell a child who has been sexually abused, who is now dealing with unwanted same-sex attractions, who for any number of reasons – social, spiritual, moral, familial – is not happy with those attractions, that it is illegal for that boy or girl, even at 17-years-old, to receive professional counseling.

This is outrageous and represents an extraordinary example of improper government overreach.

When the prevaricator in chief says "America's God given bounty", he must mean "allah", which leads the prevaricator to think it is ok to subvert a Christian nation to turn the 'bounty' (should be read BOOTY) over to Muslims.. whom his god allah meant it for.

I'm finding it difficult to love this person Lord, please help me to maintain a proper respect for you and your judgment, the shadow of which falls upon us all, as I try to come to grips with this corrupt and wicked administration and its key players.

20 Reasons You Wouldn't Want To Live In An America Controlled By Liberals Like Obama

The only thing more disturbing than the arrogance, incompetence, and lawlessness of Barack Obama's administration is that most liberals are perfectly fine with everything he's doing. It's shocking that there are so many Americans who don't care about the Constitution, the rule of law, or even what happens to the country just as long as someone they agree with ideologically is in charge. In fact, the only time liberals seem to get really upset these days is if someone criticizes Barack Obama or tries to put ANY KIND of restraint on his power. Want to know how America would look if liberals like Barack Obama had complete control of the country?

1) Abortion would be the only "choice." Almost everything else including light bulbs, TVs, health care plans, cars, and the schools your child goes to would be chosen for you by people in D.C.

2) You could be sued for failing to warn people that you are about to say something that could conceivably be offensive to women, gays, transsexuals, or minorities.

3) Every sports fan of teams like the Redskins, Braves, Chiefs, Indians, Blackhawks, and Seminoles would be branded as a bigot and all of those teams would be forced to change their names.

4) We would have open borders and anyone who walks across would be welcome to sign up as a citizen and collect welfare, food stamps, and Social Security.

5) It would be illegal to say the Pledge of Allegiance or fly an American flag because it might "offend people."

6) All criticism of black and Hispanic politicians would be shrugged off and treated as racism.

7) Government investigations of liberal wrongdoing would be handled by friends, associates, or campaign contributors of the liberal being charged.

8) So many nuclear and coal plants would be shut down that we'd end up with regularly scheduled blackouts in many parts of the country.

9) Anyone could choose not to work and get a monthly stipend from the state -- well, until the money runs out.

10) Cities, states, and even well-connected big businesses that spend irresponsibly and go broke could always be bailed out by the federal government.

11) Women would have to get mandatory abortion counseling from Planned Parenthood before giving birth just to make sure they are ready to have a child.

12) Conservative talk radio, blogs, websites and especially Fox News would be regulated out of existence and only government-approved media sources would be allowed.

13) Christians and conservatives would have to hide their beliefs to get government jobs.

14) The IRS would be allowed to audit people solely for contributing to conservative candidates or being a member of conservative groups.

15) Men who have sex with women who are drinking would be treated as rapists by default.

16) Merit and even basic competence would be secondary in importance to hiring people who are the right race or sex for a job.

17) Any child who plays with a toy gun would be considered a potential psychopath and expelled from school.

18) Americans would only be allowed to buy tiny, overpriced electric cars that don't work very well.

19) It would be illegal to oppose gay marriage.

20) Guns would be confiscated from everyone except the criminals, the cops, the military, and the bodyguards for rich liberals.

Under the Communist 'democrats' the ONLY Sin is HAVING MORALS!

What do democrats find offensive: the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Capitalism, People WITH Morals and/or Christian values, and ANYBODY who DISAGREES with them!

[RE. the Arizona bill that would allow businesses to refuse service to LGBT people.]

I wonder how many of these people who believe that the government should force people to work for homosexuals realize that they are supporting slavery? After all, they are supporting involuntary servitude.

Pat Buchanan #racist townhall.com

Should Christians, Muslims, Mormons who refuse, on religious grounds, to serve same-sex couples -- that photographer, that florist, that baker, for example -- be treated as criminals?

Or should Arizona leave them alone?

"Religious freedom," said Daniel Mach of the ACLU to the Times, is "not a blank check to ... impose our faith on our neighbors."

True. But who is imposing whose beliefs here?

The baker who says he's not making your wedding cake? Or those who want Arizona law to declare that either he provides that wedding cake and those flowers for that same-sex ceremony, or we see to it that he is arrested, prosecuted and put out of business?

Who is imposing his views and values here?

What we are seeing in Arizona in microcosm is what we have witnessed in America for half a century: the growing intolerance of those who preach tolerance and the corruption of the concept of civil rights.

We have seen the progression before.

In 1954, the Supreme Court declared that segregation in public schools was wrong and every black child must be allowed to attend his or her neighborhood school. By 1968, the court was demanding that white children be forcibly bussed across entire cities to insure an arbitrary racial balance.

Under the civil rights acts of the 1960s, businesses were told that in hiring, promotion, pay, and benefits, black and white, men and women must be treated alike. Equality of opportunity.

But, soon, that was no longer enough. We needed equality of result.

[...]

Virtually all decisions to hire, fire, promote or punish employees, to oversee the sale and rental of housing, to ensure that all minorities have access to all restaurants, hotels and motels, are under the jurisdiction of these minions who are right out of Orwell's "1984."

Scores of thousands of bureaucrats -- academic, corporate, government -- are on watch, overseeing our economy, patrolling our society, monitoring our behavior.

A radical idea: Suppose we repealed the civil rights laws and fired all the bureaucrats enforcing these laws.

Does anyone think hotels, motels and restaurants across Dixie, from D.C. to Texas, would stop serving black customers? Does anyone think there would again be signs sprouting up reading "whites" and "colored" on drinking foundations and restrooms?

Does anyone think restrictive covenants against Jews would be rewritten into contracts on houses? Does anything think that bars and hotels would stop serving blacks and Hispanics?

[...]

Cannot a free people deal with social misconduct with social sanctions?

And isn't this what freedom is all about? The freedom of others to say things we disagree with, to publish ideas we disbelieve in, even to engage in behavior we dislike?

[...]

Last year, the Supreme Court struck down the preclearance provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Yet, somehow, Mississippi still has more black elected officials than any other state.

If the conditions that called for the laws of the 1960s have ceased to exist, why do those laws still exist?

[Discussion on buying your sweetheart a gun for Valentine's Day]

left-lib "men" are generally wussies anyway, and so would be afraid of anyone with the means to put them in their place. Any assertive woman would likely give them the willies.

Just think, though... if the conservatives tend to arm and train our women, and the "other guys" tend to fear both the arms and the women who carry them, guess which "class" will increase over time? Particularly as things get "rough" as they seem to be likely to do. What was that business Darwin wrote about? No, not the whacked out one he later recanted, the other one.. somethjing about natural selection?

John Hawkins #fundie townhall.com

There may be no official rule book for being a liberal, but that doesn't mean there aren't rules. There are actually quite a few rules liberals go by and the more politically active liberals become, the more rigidly they tend to stick to their own code of behavior. These rules, most of which are unspoken, are passed along culturally on the Left and viciously enforced. Ironically, many liberals could not explain these rules to you and don't even consciously know they're following them. So, by reading this article, not only will you gain a better understanding of liberals, you'll know them better than they know themselves in some ways.

1) You justify your beliefs about yourself by your status as a liberal, not your deeds. The most sexist liberal can think of himself as a feminist while the greediest liberal can think of himself as generous. This is because liberals define themselves as being compassionate, open minded, kind, pro-science and intelligent not based on their actions or achievements, but based on their ideology. This is one of the most psychologically appealing aspects of liberalism because it allows you to be an awful person while still thinking of yourself as better than everyone else.

2) You exempt yourself from your attacks on America: Ever notice that liberals don't include themselves in their attacks on America? When they say, "This is a racist country," or ",This is a mean country," they certainly aren't referring to themselves or people who hold their views. Even though liberals supported the KKK, slaughtering the Indians, and putting the Japanese in internment camps, when they criticize those things, it's meant as an attack on everyone else EXCEPT LIBERALS. The only thing a liberal believes he can truly do wrong is to be insufficiently liberal.

3) What liberals like should be mandatory and what they don't like should be banned: There's an almost instinctual form of fascism that runs through most liberals. It's not enough for liberals to love gay marriage; everyone must be forced to love gay marriage. It's not enough for liberals to be afraid of guns; guns have to be banned. It's not enough for liberals to want to use energy-saving light bulbs; incandescent light bulbs must be banned. It's not enough for liberals to make sure most speakers on campuses are left-wing; conservative speakers must be shouted down or blocked from speaking.

4) The past is always inferior to the present: Liberals tend to view traditions, policies, and morals of past generations as arbitrary designs put in place by less enlightened people. Because of this, liberals don't pay much attention to why traditions developed or wonder about possible ramifications of their social engineering. It’s like an architect ripping out the foundation of a house without questioning the consequences and if the living room falls in on itself as a result, he concludes that means he needs to make even more changes.

5) Liberalism is a jealous god and no other God may come before it: A liberal "Christian" or "Jew" is almost an oxymoron because liberalism trumps faith for liberals. Taking your religious beliefs seriously means drawing hard lines about right and wrong and that's simply not allowed. Liberals demand that even God bow down on the altar of liberalism.

John Hawkins #fundie townhall.com

I'd like to suggest some ways that we conservatives can stop being such selfish ogres and give those on the Left exactly what they want and much more importantly, what they deserve.

So, in the generous spirit of bipartisanship, here are ten ways that we can give liberals exactly what they SAY they want.

1) There are far too many people in our prisons who have been failed by our society. That certainly isn't their fault. That's why we need to release a few million prisoners into halfway houses in liberal neighborhoods.

2) America needs to lead the way in alternative energy; so it should be illegal for liberals to power their homes with anything other than windmills and solar energy. On the upside, since this will mean a lot of time in the dark, these liberals will gain the added bonus of being able to get back to nature.

3) Bodyguards for liberal politicians, celebrities, and athletes shouldn't be able to use guns. After all, people don't kill people; guns kill people -- so by removing the guns from those bodyguards, those people will be safer than ever!

4) We do need to make sure that everyone gets a "working wage." So, let's raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour. We can start by raising the salaries of chauffeurs, gardeners, nannies, cooks, and maids in Hollywood and expand from there until we all make at least $100 an hour and will thus, be rich! But wait....if we were all rich, then we'd all be exploitive and evil....ah, that's something to figure out in the next column.

5) We do need to bring illegal aliens "out of the shadows," which is why any illegal aliens captured in America who aren’t immediately deported should be shipped to Berkeley or San Francisco, where they can live in peace, use the schools, and collect government benefits until their trials...well, if they show up for their trials.

6) Union labor is important, which is why liberal businesses should be legally obligated to ONLY use unionized labor. Granted, that might mean long delays, their competitors dramatically undercutting them on costs, or even going out of business, but wouldn't that be worth it for those people if they got to put more money in the pockets of union members?

7) Fairness is very important. That's why we need to apply the Fairness Doctrine to newspaper editorial pages, MSNBC, Current TV, and the Huffington Post.

8) We all know animals (and trees) should have the same rights as human beings; so is it really worth it to save human lives if animals have suffered to make it possible? That's why it should be illegal to sell liberals insulin, antibiotics, drugs that fight AIDS/HIV and any other medicines that were made possible by testing that was done on animals.

9) Let's put salary caps in place to keep rich guys from earning money that they don't deserve. How about a maximum of $100,000 for any actor's appearance in a film? That seems fair, right? Wouldn't you agree to star in a major motion picture for $100,000?

10) Increasing diversity is an important goal; so we should set quotas to insure that every newspaper staff in America (and we can't forget MSNBC) have as many minorities present as there are in the population. It would also be nice if Netroots Nation wasn't as white as a snowstorm in Maine; so maybe next year some of those white, liberal attendees could give up their tickets to people of color.

National holidays are established based on something. We have one in January celebrating the birthday of a civil rights leader. In February we have a national holiday celebrating the birthdays of two presidents. In May we remember those who have fallen in service of this country. In July we celebrate the birth of a nation. In September we commemorate the labor movement and Veterans are honored in November. Each national holiday is for a specific reason.

We are told by the secular folks that December 25th is not a celebration about a religious figure. If not, then what does it celebrate? If that religious figure had never existed what would be the reason for the celebration? Why would it be a national holiday? If Jesus (pronounced “hay-zoose”) had never existed then there would be no December 25th celebration called Christmas (or Xmas if you prefer)

Yea, I did leave the one out in November but that history also involves some religious stuff and thanking someone whom the secular humanist, atheistic folks say doesn’t exist. Perhaps they should thank the government for their welfare check or Obamacare.

Liberals believe in separation of church and state unless government will pay you overtime pay on those religious oriented holidays. (Another one of those “inconvenient truths”)

Katie Kiefer #fundie townhall.com

Rand may have been an atheist, but she embraced reason and natural law. Christians must do likewise. As Aquinas writes, if Christians embrace laws that violate reason and natural law, such as wealth redistribution mandates, they are in fact embracing injustice.

When Rand’s hero, John Galt, explains justice, he does so in a manner that is consistent with Aristotle, Aquinas and the biblical definition justice—in relation to objective truth and goodness: “Justice is the recognition of the fact that… just as you do not pay a higher price for a rusty chunk of scrap than for a piece of shining metal, so you do not value a rotter above a hero—that your moral appraisal is the coin paying men for their virtues or vices, and this payment demands of you as scrupulous an honor as you bring to financial transactions…”

I think Christians should avoid rushing to judgment on Rand’s philosophy because, at core, she has much to say about living with integrity and pursuing true happiness. No matter what term a pastor uses (think “social justice”), socialism is neither ethical nor Christian. Next week I will delve deeper into explaining how Rand’s beliefs are compatible with Christianity.
