"During and shortly after the election, I was traveling in the old Confederacy. There was a real sense of joy at Trump’s success. A black cloud, the cloud of political correctness, had long weighed Dixie down. On November 9 it lifted. Southerners saw and talked about the difference. Retailers told me business picked up sharply after the vote. Cultural pessimism had been replaced with optimism. The future was no longer fated to be a slow death by drowning in the sludge of cultural Marxism." - William Lind
The comments of civil rights leaders on the death of Fidel Castro are very interesting. Check out these observations from Jesse Jackson and Sam Riddle:
"While Castro unfortunately denied many political freedoms, he at the same time did establish many economic freedoms — education and health care," Jackson said. "He changed the world. While we may not agree with all of Castro's actions, we can accept his lesson that where there is oppression there must be resistance." "It was Fidel who fought for the human rights for black Cubans," said Riddle, political director of the Michigan Chapter of the National Action Network. "Many Cubans are as black as any black who worked the fields of Mississippi or lived in Harlem. He believed in medical care and education for his people."If you ever wondered what type of society civil rights activists want, look no further than Communist Cuba, where EVERYONE is equally miserable (except the ruling elite). After all, socialism is nothing but systematized envy, and civil rights, critical race theory, and social justice are theories and movements supporting racialized socialism, with Blacks, Latinos, or LGBTs taking the place of the proletariat. So when you hear someone blabbering about the next step in the sacred name of "civil rights," you know what their actual goal is.

Here's the ABC News report on the latest Muslim terror attack, this time at Ohio State University:
Authorities are investigating an anti-U.S. rant posted on Facebook just minutes before the Ohio State University attack today that is believed to be linked to suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan, sources told ABC News. Appearing three minutes before the beginning of the rampage that left 11 people injured, the post reads: “I can’t take it anymore. America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially the Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.” The post also invokes the name Anwar Al-Awlaki, a radical American-born al-Qaeda cleric, describing him as a “hero." Al-Awlaki was killed in 2011 but his propaganda has been linked to several domestic terrorist attacks in the years after his death. “If you want us Muslims to stop carrying lone wolf attacks, then make peace,” the post reads. “We will not let you sleep unless you give peace to the Muslims.”Hmm -- sounds like a threat to me. But it just COULDN'T have been terrorism, because Artan was vetted by the US State Department when Catholic Charities of Dallas had him and his family brought to this country as refugees. Right. The most bizarre coverage came from NPR, which didn't bother to ask the victims, their families, or any other Americans how they felt about their government importing nearly 100,000 Somali Muslims into their country. Instead, their story focused on the delicate feelings of Somali immigrants. Here's the story: Muslim Community Fears Backlash After Ohio State Attack. Wow. Imagine that after human cockroach Dylann Roof shot his victims in Charleston last year, NPR sought out Southerners fearful of a backlash against Confederate monuments. Yes, it's that crazy.

"I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be." - Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a Somali refugee now living in Ohio, who drove his car into a group of students today, got out, and started stabbing people with a butcher knife. He's right, though not in the way he imagines. Just remember this: The proper pronunciation of "Somali" is: O·hi′o·an

One less commie in the world! This release from Raul Castro is just too perfect:
In compliance with the expressed will of Companion Fidel, his remains will be cremated. In the early hours of Saturday 26, the funeral organizing committee will provide our people with detailed information on the organization of the posthumous Homage that will be taxed to the founder of the Cuban Revolution.Yes, let the despot's last act be one more tax on his long-suffering, impoverished people. How fitting. May he rot in hell.

Lysenkoism, which tried to prop up Marxist ideology. The latest (and wackiest) campaign is transgenderism, which accepts as indisputable gospel that a person can magically transform themselves from male to female or female to male by "identifying" with that gender. North Carolina's HB2 law took a contrary view by putting legal support for traditional sex roles. The media, Hollywood, and the entire leftist horde is still trying to overturn that law. So what a pleasant surprise to see the American College of Pediatricians stand up for reason and common sense in this position statement entitled Gender Ideology Harms Children:
The American College of Pediatricians urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality. 1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident. The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex.1 3. A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. 8. Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents, leading more children to present to “gender clinics” where they will be given puberty-blocking drugs. This, in turn, virtually ensures that they will “choose” a lifetime of carcinogenic and otherwise toxic cross-sex hormones, and likely consider unnecessary surgical mutilation of their healthy body parts as young adults.I quoted three points, but it's definitely worth while to read the entire statement. These days, we need to drink in all the sanity boosters we can find.

4th Generation Warfare continues to evolve, while our idiot leaders are stuck in the 20th century. Al Qaeda has weaponized mass migration:
The jailed architect of 9/11 revealed that al Qaeda's plan to kill the United States was not through military attacks but immigration and "outbreeding nonmuslims" who would use the legal system to install Sharia law, according to a blockbuster new book. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed also predicted that intelligence officials using so-called "enhanced interrogation" techniques such the waterboarding he experienced would eventually come under attack from weak-kneed U.S. politicians and media.And this won't be the first time Muslims have used mass migration to overwhelm and conquer territory. Morocco snatched Spanish Sahara in north Africa in 1975 by sending hundreds of thousands of civilians into the territory. Will we let history repeat itself? If we do, this time it will be both tragedy and farce.
"Beyond a certain point a formerly great empire becomes so dysfunctional that smaller, more cohesive neighbors begin tearing it apart. Eventually the capacity for cooperation declines to such a low level that barbarians can strike at the very heart of the empire without encountering significant resistance. But barbarians at the gate are not the real cause of imperial collapse. They are a consequence of the failure to sustain social cooperation." - Peter Turchin, in Ultrasociety

The #Calexit movement is speeding along:
Anti-Trump secessionists filed formal paperwork Monday launching their petition drive aimed at separating California from the union by first putting the issue before voters on the 2018 ballot. A petition submitted by the Yes California Independence Campaign calls for repealing language in the state constitution that describes California as an “inseparable part” of the nation and holding a vote on independence on March 13, 2019. Organizers, who filed the petition with the California attorney general, said they plan to begin collecting signatures early next year to qualify for the ballot. At the same time, the group is planning to hold #Calexit rallies in Los Angeles and San Francisco during the Jan. 20 inauguration of president-elect Donald Trump.Can you imagine? No more San Francisco liberals telling us what to do. With Oakland out of the country, our crime rate would drop by half. And while Hollyweird is already an alien country, it would be in a foreign one. I wonder if the #Calexit movement needs donations?

The patriotic tide continues to swell throughout the West. The latest uprising is roiling the French race for president, where Marine Le Pen has taken the lead:
Front National leader Marine Le Pen has taken a sizeable lead over Nicolas Sarkozy in a new French presidential election poll. The far-right leader had 29 per cent of the vote when pitted against Les Républicains’ former president, who was eight points behind, and held a 15-point lead over the Parti de Gauche’s Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the poll released by Ipsos. It was one of five scenarios for the first round of France's 2017 presidential elections on 23 April, although one that did not include Les Républicains’ Alain Juppé – who remains strong favourite to succeed Francois Hollande as leader. While Mr Juppé holds leads of between 4 and 7 per cent in three other scenarios including him, the results are likely to add to growing fears that the rise of global populism could see Ms Le Pen secure a surprise victory in the wake of the UK’s Brexit vote and Donald Trump’s US election win.What could explain Le Pen's surprising strength, or, for that matter, Brexit and the Trump upset? Maybe -- just MAYBE -- people don't want their nations looking like this:

Anti-free speech antifa attacked a peaceful NPI conference. Fortunately, police were on hand to nab the thugs:
The group was generally peaceful until a man and a woman from NPI approached the group with a video camera and microphone, prompting protesters to yell "Nazis go home." The woman, who wouldn't give CNN her name but wore a badge saying "Emily," appeared to interview a protester, asking him if he is a "self-hating white person." Another protester knocked the man's video camera, and a scuffle ensued between the two. A few other protesters entered the fray yelling "Die, Nazi, die," and the man from NPI reemerged with a bloody gash on his forehead. He declined to give his name. Two protesters were handcuffed by police. CNN videotaped the incident. Police later escorted the pair from NPI to a waiting ambulance while the rest of the protesters continued marching peacefully along Pennsylvania Avenue. ... "Emily," who referred to the protesters as communists. said she is concerned about the decreasing white population in the United States but less so "now that Donald Trump is president."So why did "Emily" refer to these cowardly thugs as "communists"? Let's ask one of the antifa, whose Twitter posting on the counter-demonstration has this headline: Communist author Mike Golash of the Progressive Labor Party speaks out at #StopNPI Sounds like "Emily" hit the nail on the head. If there's one thing totalitarian communists can't stand, it's dissent.

Snicker. From the Daily Mail:
In the waning days of the presidential campaign, Bill and Hillary Clinton had a knock-down, drag-out fight about her effort to blame FBI Director James Comey for her slump in the polls and looming danger of defeat. 'I was with Bill in Little Rock when he had this shouting match with Hillary on the phone and she accused Comey for reviving the investigation into her use of a private email server and reversing her campaign's momentum,' said one of Bill Clinton's closest advisers. 'Bill didn't buy the excuse that Comey would cost Hillary the election,' said the source. 'As far as he was concerned, all the blame belonged to [campaign manager Robby] Mook, [campaign chairman John] Podesta and Hillary because they displayed a tone-deaf attitude about the feeble economy and its impact on millions and millions of working-class voters.But this video show how poor Bill has coped:
The enforcers of correct thinking at Twitter have spoken: No tweets for you!
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Spencer — an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump — accused Twitter of censoring alt-right voices in the aftermath of Trump's election. “This is corporate Stalinism,” he told the Daily Caller. “Twitter is trying to airbrush the Alt Right out of existence.”Speaking of Stalinism, Twitter's action just tickled totalitarian hearts all over the Internet. Over at the far-left Little Green Footballs, Charles Johnson posted this headline: A Little Good News: Twitter Shuts Down Major White Supremacist Accounts To which he added, "Overdue." Take that, free speech!

Massachusetts is famous for its stand for liberty at Lexington. And Concord. And Bunker Hill. And now -- this:
Students at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst are staging a week-long “sh*t-in,” occupying restrooms in an administration building to demand more gender-neutral facilities. The “Sh*t-In at Whitmore” demonstration began Monday morning at the Whitmore Administration building (which the activists have nicknamed “Queermore”), and organizers intend to have students continue occupying stalls in the building’s male and female restrooms until their demands are met, though the Facebook event specifies a Friday afternoon ending.Among their demands, protesters want the university to hire a professor "who is an expert in the field of critical transmisogyny from an intersectional perspective.” Whatever that means. Unenlightened souls who don't understand why gender-neutral bathrooms are important must read this from the protesters' manifesto:
“There can be no climate justice without gender justice. There can no be gender justice without racial justice. There can no be racial justice without economic justice. There can be no economic justice without social justice.”Oh, yeah. If the university will only build more gender-neutral bathrooms, it'll rip a hole in the racism/heteronormative continuum, which will spontaneously birth all kinds of justice, especially climate justice. Whales and manatees will prosper and polar bears will no longer get the sads. Makes sense to me.

Yes, putting Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota in charge of the DNC will bring back disaffected White voters. Those Democrats are marketing geniuses, I tell you!
Here's a timely and urgent warning from The Intercept:
When Donald Trump becomes commander in chief in January, he will take on presidential powers that have never been more expansive and unchecked. He’ll control an unaccountable drone program, and the prison at Guantanamo Bay. His FBI, including a network of 15,000 paid informants, already has a record of spying on mosques and activists, and his NSA’s surveillance empire is ubiquitous and governed by arcane rules, most of which remain secret. He will inherit bombing campaigns in seven Muslim countries, the de facto ability to declare war unilaterally, and a massive nuclear arsenal — much of which is on hair-trigger alert. Caught off guard by Hillary Clinton’s election defeat, Democrats who defended these powers under President Obama may suddenly be having second thoughts as the White House gets handed over to a man they described — with good reason — as “unhinged,” and “dangerously unfit.” In the years after the 9/11 terror attacks, Vice President Dick Cheney and his legal adviser David Addington dramatically expanded the powers of the presidency, asserting the unilateral right in wartime to ignore legal limits on things like torture and government eavesdropping. Congressional Democrats generally caved, but made a few efforts to push back. The Democrats went silent on executive overreach when Obama was elected, however.In today's political climate, the mainstream left wants more political power to advance "social justice," and the mainstream right wants more power to expand its foreign agenda. "Extremists" (me, for example) object to both.

Huffington Post is a site I don't normally link to, but this is just too good to ignore:
On Thursday, Democratic Party officials held their first staff meeting since Hillary Clinton’s stunning loss to Donald Trump in the presidential race. It didn’t go well. Donna Brazile, the interim leader of the Democratic National Committee, was giving what one attendee described as “a rip-roaring speech” to about 150 employees, about the need to have hope for wins going forward, when a staffer identified only as Zach stood up with a question. “Why should we trust you as chair to lead us through this?” he asked, according to two people in the room. “You backed a flawed candidate, and your friend [former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz] plotted through this to support your own gain and yourself.” Some DNC staffers started to boo and some told him to sit down. Brazile began to answer, but Zach had more to say. “You are part of the problem,” he continued, blaming Brazile for clearing the path for Trump’s victory by siding with Clinton early on. “You and your friends will die of old age and I’m going to die from climate change. You and your friends let this happen, which is going to cut 40 years off my life expectancy.” Zach gathered his things and began to walk out. When Brazile called after him, asking where he was going, he told her to go outside and “tell people there” why she should be leading the party.
Is it 1860 again? Or is it 1991 in North America? One thing's for sure: We're in a new age. The movement for self-determination in Cascadia is serious:
Two days after Donald Trump was elected president of the United States, two Portlanders have submitted a petition for a 2018 ballot initiative to have Oregon secede from the United States. On Thursday morning, Jennifer Rollins, a lawyer, and Christian Trejbal, a writer, filed the Oregon Secession Act. "Oregonian values are no longer the values held by the rest of the United States," Trejbal said over the phone Thursday.If you doubt how serious this movement is, consider that many secession movements were preceded by protests and riots. Last night, 29 people were arrested in Portland in anti-Trump demonstrations. Meanwhile, California secession efforts are getting the backing of influential Silicon Valley moguls. The immediate cause is the election of Donald Trump. But there are deeper forces at work as well, as Ian Smith points out:
Harvard evolutionary biologist Joseph Henrich says that nation-states were created in order to harness man’s innate tribal psychology. So, when additional tribal groups are added to a nation, he says, things start to break down. Predicting the fate of “multinational states,” or states composed of large national groups, is easy considering their frequency; Yugoslavia, the Hapsburg Empire, the Russian Empire (as well as the Soviet Union), and the Ottoman Empire, are just a few examples. Each lacked both cultural unity and a shared historical memory and each were eventually divided up by independence movements. America’s become a similar “multinational state.” Today, large swathes of the country don’t recognize that America was founded by British people wanting to replicate British culture, that the Founding Fathers were admirable men, and that we’re a nation of settlers, not immigrants.Of course, none of this is news to longtime readers of this blog. Here's what I wrote back in August:
No doubt the DC Empire is tottering. And Donald Trump's loss could very well drive some states to secede. And with national identity and cohesion all but vanished already due to floodtide immigration, it's unlikely other states will invade to force seceding states back in. But a more interesting scenario could arise should Trump win. Would California, New Mexico, and Massachusetts want to remain with The Donald in charge? That's a possibility more likely to hasten the peaceable dismantling of this overgrown and outdated empire.Interesting times. We got 'em.

Leave it to those forward-thinking folks in California to push the envelope on advancing the rights of all minorities. For too long, nothing but bias prevented the deceased from voting and holding office. We're in a brave, new age now, and it's about time.
After blubbering about how poor li'l Hillary didn't get her precious, which all enlightened persons know she deserved, Tim Kaine tried to enoble her loss by comparing it to the South's valiant battle for independence. In his concession speech, Kaine referred to the William Faulkner short story "Wash":
When a character comes home from the Civil War in William Faulkner’s 1934 short story “Wash,” the poor white Southerner who lives on his property greets him with optimism. “Well, Kernel,” he says, “they kilt us but they ain’t whupped us yit, air they?” The reader knows in fact it’s hopeless, but in his concession speech on Wednesday morning, Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine employed the quote as a message of hope. Although he and his running mate Hillary Clinton had lost, he said, Democrats aren’t done fighting for what they believe in.The "Kernel" in this passage refers to Colonel Thomas Sutpen, who was decorated by none other than Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Sorry, Tim. It's a little late to start admiring Southern heroes. Instead, when the campaign was hot, you stoked racial tensions by telling Black leaders that Whites need to feel what it's like to be in the minority. Mr. Kaine, I know a great deal about Southern heroes. Robert E. Lee is a hero of mine. Mr. Kaine, you're no Southern hero.

Now isn't this interesting? In the wake of Trump's surprise victory, the most strident calls for secession are coming from the Blue states:
Half of the country might be celebrating Donald Trump's victory, but others are talking about seceding from the United States. Are they being sore losers or opportunists? For some people in California, and other western states that went blue for Hillary Clinton, the road forward is clear: Cut their losses and make a go of it without the rest of the country.

No matter which candidate wins the presidency, we're going to see more headlines like this:
An organization hoping to facilitate the secession of California from the Union is holding a meet and greet on the Capitol steps in Sacramento next Wednesday, November 9, 2016, or, the day after the presidential election. The Yes California Independence Campaign, which is based in San Diego, is aiming to qualify a citizen's initiative in 2018 to get a referendum for secession on the ballot in 2019. They'll be in Sacramento to garner support for their initiative. "In our view," a statement on its website reads, "the United States of America represents so many things that conflict with Californian values, and our continued statehood means California will continue subsidizing the other states to our own detriment, and to the detriment of our children."The left-leaning states don't like having to accommodate the conservative states, and vice-versa. Meanwhile, American identity has been so diluted by endless waves of immigration that it's impossible to define what it means to be "American." All that's left is the machinery of government. Obedience to DC's regulatory bureaucracy is all there is to American loyalty. Who wants to die defending that?

In the name of holy diversity, the Obama regime wants to force local police forces to accept felons. No, really:
In a push to hire minority police officers, the Obama administration is asking the nation’s 18,000 law enforcement agencies to forgive drug use, disregard the criminal records of candidates from “underrepresented communities” and lower standards on written and physical exams. It’s part of the administration’s Advancing Diversity in Law Enforcement initiative following a string of officer-involved shootings involving African Americans. Key to the mission is the racial diversification of local law enforcement agencies so that they “better reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.”The Civil Rights Revolution has always been about lowering quality. First, IQ tests had to go, as mandated in Griggs vs. Duke Power. And, as the Judicial Watch report notes, the same warped reasoning has to be applied to hiring convicted felons as police officers. Obama's Task Force on 21st Century Policing explicitly states that “an employer’s use of criminal background information can violate either the intentional or disparate impact provisions of Title VII, depending on how that information is used.” It's bad enough that every local police force will have to adjust its hiring quotas every time another boatload of Haitians or Syrians or Somalis comes ashore so the force reflects the community's shifting population, but they'll have to accept felons. Diversity trumps tradition, logic, and plain common sense. This is insanity.

DC eyes the wretched peoples of the Middle East, considers the human misery and bloodshed it's imposed there, and thinks, "Why can't we do more?" Besides, the burden of debt DC has imposed on us is only $19.8 trillion. What's a few billion more?
Open your borders to the Third World, and you'll create a fairy land of dynamic diversity, where all who immigrate will settle down and become productive citizens, strengthening democracy. Or so the theory goes. Sweden is grappling with what REALLY happens when the government imports an alien population:
protests lootfest in September. He swore he was retiring. "I figure I'll just let these folks settle their differences by themselves." He told me dozens of other officers planned to do the same.
This isn't just a Swedish problem; it's a problem for the entire West. If we don't locate our pride and backbones soon, we'll find ourselves occupied by a hostile, alien force.
The Scandinavian country is facing an existential crisis with on average three police officers handing in their resignations a day. If the alarming trend continues, and police officers continue to resign more than 1,000 officers will have quit the service by New Years. Since the migrant crisis began last summer, Sweden has been hit by a series of brutal crimes and violent incidents. In 2015 alone Sweden, with a population of 9.5million, received over 160,000 asylum applications and the country is expected to take as many as 190,000 refugees, or two per cent of the population, by the end of 2016.Who can blame the Swedish police?

The emails WikiLeaks just released include some revealing inside information about how the ruling elite sees itself and the people it feeds upon. Even more interesting, when it thinks no one can hear them, the ruling elite brags about how it looks out for itself. From the Guardian:
Then there is the apparent nepotism, the dozens if not hundreds of mundane emails in which petitioners for this or that plum Washington job or high-profile academic appointment politely appeal to Podesta – the ward-heeler of the meritocratic elite – for a solicitous word whispered in the ear of a powerful crony. This genre of Podesta email, in which people try to arrange jobs for themselves or their kids, points us toward the most fundamental thing we know about the people at the top of this class: their loyalty to one another and the way it overrides everything else. Of course Hillary Clinton staffed her state department with investment bankers and then did speaking engagements for investment banks as soon as she was done at the state department. Of course she appears to think that any kind of bank reform should “come from the industry itself”. And of course no elite bankers were ever prosecuted by the Obama administration.Welcome to Reality 101.
I always knew James Carville was as crazy as a snapping turtle, but now even true-blue Democrats can see it:
In an appearance on MSNBC on Monday, Carville relentlessly — and repeatedly — attacked the FBI’s decision to reopen the investigation, asserting it is part of a conspiracy to subvert American democracy. “This is in effect an attempt to hijack an election,” Carville claimed. “It’s unprecedented … the House Republicans and the KGB are trying to influence our democracy,” he said.Yes, Jimmy, the FBI, the KGB, and the House Republicans have teamed up with the Klan, the Masons, and the Illuminati to destroy our democracy and impurify our precious bodily fluids. Sheesh.
