Just How Far left is Ilhan Omar?

from the American Spectator:

Is Ilhan Omar a Communist?

Commie Angela Davis

Now there’s a headline to make progressives light their hair on fire. Few things set off liberals quite like anti-communism. Pro-communism doesn’t bother them much, at least not enough to openly complain. But anti-communism? One whiff of it sends them hyperventilating into howls of McCarthyism. The same seems true nowadays for socialism, as evident when Donald Trump devoted a mere line or two to it in his State of the Union. Judging from liberal hysteria, one would think Trump had announced a resurrection of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. What a shameless Red-baiter!

That brings me to Ilhan Omar, stalwart member of the Democratic Socialists of America, which describes itself as “the largest socialist organization in the United States.” Read: “socialist,” even as self-described “democratic socialists” insist that they eschew the label “socialist.” read more

Russia’s Belgorod Submarine

Russia launched the world’s longest submarine today, the special mission submarine Belgorod. Designed to support a variety of military missions, including the Poseidon long-range strategic nuclear torpedo, the sub is far larger than anything operated by any other naval force, including the U.S. Navy. The six hundred foot long submarine displaces more water than a World War I battleship and can dive to a depth of 1,700 feet. read more

Feminists Wising up to the Threat of Transgenderism

Since the dawn of feminism, women have been preached at, that a woman can do anything a man can, and maybe better. But God made men and women different. It’s taken the onset of transgenders competing directly against women for them to finally figure this out. And they’re not happy about. Welcome to the party.

from the Federalist:

Trans Competitors In Women’s Sports Destroy What Women Have Won

The ‘party of science’ conveniently ignores that men are able to develop and maintain more muscle mass and that their bodies can pump more oxygen.

Competing on the University of Iowa Women’s Rowing Team was one of the greatest experiences imaginable. I look back on those four years with a thankful heart for not only representing my state on the national stage but also developing a lasting sisterhood with the women I rowed with.

I can speak for the majority of female athletes when saying that sports have given women an outlet to better ourselves. Yet Democrats’ proposed Equality Act in the House of Representatives will completely alter women’s sports. The most poignant fact of H.R.5. is that if a biological man chooses so, even without receiving opposite-sex hormones, he can compete against a biological woman.

To think that a biological man who identifies as a woman can compete with us as if our bodies can be cheapened like this is not only insulting but also a direct assault on our selves as female athletes. We’re athletes who have trained to become the best versions of ourselves, and what we’ve achieved is being stolen by the hands of one whose feelings are deemed more worthy, according to a select few on the left. Under progressivism, a transgender individual’s desires must dominate women’s freedoms.

Men are indeed built differently than women. Males have larger internal organs than females, meaning they can pump more oxygen into their bodies, which yields higher athletic performance. And no, opposite-sex hormones do not hinder men’s physical advantage.

Better to be Awake than Woke

by: Brent Smith at Common Constitutionalist

I enjoy viewing various #WalkAway stories from time to time – seeing what it took for each to wise up to the nonsense they’ve been spoon-fed their whole lives.

For those unfamiliar, the #WalkAway campaign was founded by Brandon Straka, whose liberal eyes were opened to the hypocrisy and lies of the left and decided to WalkAway from liberalism and the democrat party.

Now, thousands are too having their eyes open as they join the campaign.

The following is a #WalkAway video posted by Shannon. She claims to be an independent, not affiliated with either party, but always voted democrat, until recently. read more

A Game of Thrones Dark Night

After months of teasing Game of Thrones recently aired what purportedly was the biggest and longest battle sequence in film history. But as soon as the episode aired the internet started to echo with criticism the battle was too dark and incoherent. While the makers adamantly claim the visual darkness in the episode was an intentional creative choice an enormous volume of fans are upset they couldn’t properly see what was going on. read more

George Carlin on Saving the Planet

The following video is comedian George Carlin’s rather politically incorrect take on saving the planet, and how mankind is not to blame for its destruction.

Warning: If you can’t stomach the F-word, you may want to skip this one. Otherwise, enjoy Carlin’s irreverent take on the arrogance of the left: read more

Is Soylent Green Really that Fantastic?

The other day, an internet article jumped off the screen at me.

It was posted on the progressive, Seattle PI website, and was entitled, “After death: Washington state set to become the first to allow human composting.”

That’s right. “Seattleites will likely soon have a unique option to remember their loved ones after they die. Washington state is set to become the first to allow “natural organic reduction” as a burial alternative — commonly referred to as human composting — as a bill legalizing the process was approved by the legislature and now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee’s desk.”

“Democratic Sen. Jamie Pedersen of Seattle sponsored the bill because he said it makes sense — it’s a low environmental impact way to dispose of remains. ‘We can show the way for the world about a better way in dealing with this universal human experience,’ Pedersen said in a tweet. …composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back. The process will turn a body into soil within weeks.”

Katrina Spade, CEO of Recompose, said that, “Americans are largely faced with two options after death: cremation and burial. Burial takes up a lot of space, and those buried can own their plots forever, which is not sustainable. Cremation releases greenhouse gases and particulates. But composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back.

Now, to help save the planet, instead of burying or cremating grandma, you can have her ground up and made into compost. What a great and enlightened idea. read more

New Aston has Seven on the Floor

America considers itself a great car loving nation and yet, according to a U.S. News and World Report study, only 18 percent of American drivers even know how to use a manual transmission, and only about 5 percent of vehicles sold in the US in 2016 had three pedals. To much of the rest of the Western world, knowing how to drive stick is a point of considerable pride, and many serious enthusiasts feel that driving automatics removes a key element of connection with the car. read more

WND Exclusive – VENEZUELA: REPLACING 1 SOCIALIST WITH ANOTHER

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

What should we make of the situation in Venezuela? Is this really something the United States should be involved in, or is it just another in a string of American buttinskies, injecting ourselves into a nation’s internal struggle?

While many on the right are cheering the most recent coup attempt to overthrow the current Thug-in-Chief, Nicholas Maduro, by Juan Guaidó, I’m beginning to wonder if it’s just another case of replacing the devil we know with the devil we don’t. read more

Video Podcast – The Problem with the 24 Hour News Cycle

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Every hour of every day has to be filled with new content, because the average reader has the attention span of a three year old. Case in point:

This is from Yahoo News:

“A 34-year-old Louisiana teacher is accused of raping her 10-year-old male student.”

But is it true? It may be, but so far the incident has just been alleged, and not been verified. But what if isn’t true. Her mugshot has already been all over the internet. If the allegation is false, where does she go to get her reputation back? The internet is replete with false allegations which have ruined lives, mainly due to the alleged perpetrator being tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. read more
