It’s a Big Nope For Mayor Pete

from the American Spectator:

Nobody ever really bought into Pete Buttigieg, did they? He wasn’t exactly a plausible presidential candidate, and the first question anybody ought to ask themselves before running for something like president of the United States of America is, “Am I plausible?”

Buttigieg was like the little ant who thought he could move the rubber tree plant in the Frank Sinatra song. But unlike the ant or Sinatra’s ram, who head-butts a hydroelectric dam until it collapses, high hopes don’t often translate into results in American politics — particularly when those hopes run counter to obvious reality. Let’s talk about that as the first item in this week’s edition of Five Quick Things.

1. Pete Buttigieg owes Rush Limbaugh an apology. read more

China May be the Worst of Communism

Not that there’s a best, but if one were to have to choose a “worst” communist nation, China should top the list. And this is just in general – the coronavirus not withstanding.

from the American Spectator:

The Fourth Reich

China is the world champion at “cancel culture.” Only when the communist tyranny cancels you, you aren’t just hounded off social media or pushed out of a job in the media or academia. You are literally canceled; executed, organ harvested, imprisoned, forced into a concentration camp, or excluded from all social participation in society.

The targets of this despotism are primarily religious believers — Falun Gong, Uyghur Muslims, and, most recently, Christians. Millions have been victimized by these vicious pogroms in recent years — and it appears the persecution has just gotten started. read more

Don’t Buy a Home in California – Just Take It!

Always wanted a home, but can’t afford one? Well it’s your lucky day. Just move to California, find a vacant house and squat in it. It doesn’t matter whether someone else “owns” it. If you want it, it’s apparently your “fundamental human right” to have it.

Taking Property for Fun and Profit

Sacramento

After a group of homeless moms simply moved into a vacant three-bedroom house in Oakland owned by a company that invests in local real estate, local progressives turned them into folk heroes. These women weren’t squatters who took something that wasn’t theirs, but valiant protesters who were standing up for their communities against — all together now — corporate speculators. read more

Stein: Democrat Long Knives

The Democrats’ Long Knives

To whom do we owe our freedom? Do we owe it to the nightly news show hosts? I don’t think so. To the rap stars? Again, not a chance. To our great athletes? To the stars whom we sometimes dance with? No.

We owe everything to a tiny sliver of the population, about 2/3 of one percent, who wear the uniform. They put up their lives each and every day to save us. There are about 1.45 million of them out of a national population of about 330 million. We do virtually nothing for them. They do everything for us. read more

Giuliani Friendlier to the Jews than an Actual Jew

I’m beginning to wonder whether Rudy may actually be hated by the left more than his boss, president Trump.

from the American Spectator:

On Rudy Giuliani Being More Jewish Than the Despicable Apostate George Soros

In New York City, where Bill de Blasio has nothing else to worry about, the controversy is now into its second day over comments that Rudy Giuliani made the other day in an interview with New York magazine, in which Giuliani said that George Soros is hardly a Jew and that Rudy is more a Jew than Soros. read more

Our Favorite Sport Suffers as America Wussifies

from the American Spectator:

Football Is Good for Kids, Propaganda Is Not

Keep those Friday Night Lights on, unless you want America’s youth to grow up less healthy and more risk averse.

Americans watch more NFL this season after several years of ratings decline. While couches and seats fill, fields go empty. For the first time in 30 years, high school sports witnessed a participation drop last year, with football’s loss of 31,000 athletes primarily fueling the decline. Youth football more glaringly experiences a participation freefall. read more

Is Adam Schiff the Not-So-Bright Democrat Fall Guy?

from the American Spectator:

Schiff Wrecked

‘Maxwell Smart‘ (YouTube screenshot)

Alot of folks were hoping this impeachment fiasco could be averted, but apparently that Schiff has sailed. Or SCIF, as the case may be. It seems that Adam Schiff was so enamored to discover that the acronym for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) consisted entirely of letters in his name, that he decided to do all the public’s business in those private alcoves. As a big-hearted kind of fellow, he affords his witnesses safe spaces where they can be sheltered from cross-examinations. The stations of the lack-of-cross, if you will. read more

Quid Pro No – When Something Turns Out to be Nothing – Again

from the American Spectator:

Impeachment Misfire: William Taylor’s Smokeless Gun

Since late Tuesday the nation has been deafened by media outlets declaring that diplomat William Taylor provided “damning” congressional testimony involving President Trump’s actions toward Ukraine. The New York Times, for example, produced this breathless headline: “Donald Trump’s Quid Pro Quo Is Now a Smoking Gun.” Evidently, the “reporters” responsible for this story failed to read Taylor’s opening statement. It consists almost entirely of hearsay, shows that he wasn’t on the fabled phone call between presidents Trump and Zelensky, and confirms that he was assured by high-ranking Trump administration officials that the president sought no quid pro quo arrangement with Ukraine in exchange for aid: read more
