Columbia University said that it relied on “outdated and/or incorrect methodologies” in submitting data to U.S. News & World Report for consideration in the publication’s 2021 college rankings, according to a statement released by the university Friday.
In February, Columbia Mathematics Professor Michael Thaddeus questioned the Ivy League school’s rise in rankings from 18th place, on its debut in 1988, to 2nd place in 2021. In a statement posted on Columbia University’s Department of Mathematics’ website, Thaddeus noted that “few other top-tier universities have also improved their standings, but none has matched Columbia’s extraordinary rise.”
Thaddeus pointed to data submitted by the university to U.S. News & World Report in questioning Columbia’s seemingly meteoric rise in rankings.
“Can we be sure that the data accurately reflect the reality of life within the university?” Thaddeus rhetorically asked. “Regrettably, the answer is no.”
So the Columbia school of Frankfurt Marxism lies….
Columbia again. Of note, one of the worst VP’s I worked with went there. I’ve never seen anyone abuse people verbally and stay employed more than him.
If you like free speech, don’t go to Columbia.
A leading free speech organization ranked the best and worst college campuses for freedom of speech and New York’s top school, Columbia University, came in dead last.
Columbia University came last and was the only school to be slammed with a Speech Climate rating of “abysmal.” Scoring just 9.91 out of 100, New York City’s Ivy was dragged down by its high number of scholars who were sanctioned for expressing their views. Between 2019-2020, seven academics faced investigation or disciplinary action for tweets or comments deemed unacceptable. Columbia did not immediately respond to The Post for comment.
Judge James C. Ho of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit announced Thursday that he would no longer be hiring law clerks from Yale Law School and urged other judges to follow suit. In a keynote address to the Kentucky Chapters Conference of the Federalist Society, titled “Agreeing to Disagree — Restoring America by Resisting Cancel Culture,” Ho cited a number of high-profile examples of speakers being shouted down or otherwise censored at law schools across the country but singled out Yale Law as “one particular law school where cancellations and disruptions seem to occur with special frequency.”
“Yale not only tolerates the cancellation of views — it actively practices it,” Ho said, according to prepared remarks exclusively obtained by National Review. “Starting today, I will no longer hire law clerks from Yale Law School. And I hope that other judges will join me as well.”
I thought I’d wait a bit until the Queen is buried out of respect. She was probably the last of the good Royals.
Her service was almost flawless and she deserves the respect of anyone that helped the battle that was WWII.
Her only fault was marrying her 3rd cousin. Philip was a good guy (when not farting), but the kids are not the best the UK has to offer.
Let’s get Andrew and his siblings out of the way. All of them have done things that had to be swept under the rug. I’m not sure the Epstein smell (who didn’t kill himself) on the family can be cleaned off of Andrew.
They aren’t the proudest moment in UK history, but then they had George III also.
Then we get to the King. I’ll give him credit that during the funeral and burial ceremonies, he acted like one. He swatted Harry and Sparkles off to the side where they belong. He didn’t do well on 50% of his kids either. I guess that is average, except he had an Army of wet nurses for the kids. Most of us have Mom and Dad, or just one.
The problem I see is his past. Chuck is a Muslim sympathizer in a Christian (ha) nation. He worships the earth more than the creator, being a Climatard.
Nothing is forgotten on the internet now. No matter what he says as king, here is what he did as Prince.
We haven’t even posted one of the videos of Charles and his love and admiration for Islam. Charles is a leading actor in several lines of effort against classical civilization, and all rights written in the Magna Carta. He is the kind of royalty for which, the Magna Carta was actually created.
A forthcoming study co-authored by a Tel Aviv University researcher appears to confirm widespread fears about the negative impact of Facebook, the world’s biggest social media platform, on its users’ mental health and self-image.
A detailed examination of data showed a correlation between a “statistically significant worsening in mental health symptoms, especially depression and anxiety” and the rapid introduction of the social media network.
Some of the benchmarks include a 20% rise in those who reported anxiety disorders; an increase of 25% to 27% in the proportion of students expected to experience moderate to severe depression; an additional 7% of students experienced “severe depression” since gaining access to the network.
The introduction of Facebook, the study found, led to increased utilization of mental healthcare services.
Who doesn’t know Facebook is at best a waste of time and at worst, life destroying. It certainly is political having funded part of the mail in fraud in the last election and Zuckerbucks 2.0 is underway.
One of the best things I ever did in Social Media, of which I have been an early adopter (and un-loader of the bad ones. I miss nothing from people who want to be seen or appreciated.
Now the Introvert inside of me is loving having cut connections with my past. Facebook presented me with a list of people I hoped never to see again. I got most of them out the way we did it before social media. Then this intrusion.
I couldn’t take the political dumbassery (a word I apparently made up) from people I thought had brains.
I also got to see who matured past high school and who didn’t. I didn’t need to see that either.
Be smart, get rid of it. I read recently that the average person wastes 1.5 hours a day on social media. Don’t be that person.
To be fair, Quayle wasn’t as bad as they made him out to be. He wasn’t one of theirs so the media attacked him for reading the teleprompter on how to spell Potato. Presidents 44 and 46 need a teleprompter to talk to elementary school kids.
Carter couldn’t make a decision so he is historically rated near the bottom.
With the current president and Veep, Quayle and Carter don’t have to go down as the worst.
At least they don’t give her anything important to do now that the election is over. The one thing she was supposed to do is oversee the protection of the southern border and that worked out worse than misspelling potato.
I think everyone gets that Biden isn’t helping anyone do better other than Hunter and Congress.
Vice President Kamala Harris just spoke at the scene of the Highland Park mass shooting.
“We have to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are because you have been forced to take this seriously,” she said. pic.twitter.com/vpLSydpJM0
Sure, Biden is a joke, but he’ll be gone soon. Chuckles will be King for life unless Prince William can bring some sanity to the throne.
The Queen held out as long as possible, every time he says something like this I watch her hang on a little bit longer:
“I can’t tell you how proud I am to be associated with the Royal College of Art, particularly as a result of seeing the remarkable ideas presented by many of the alumni and existing students,” Prince Charles said at the event where the prizes were given out. “May I say that it is critical because of the urgency we face in terms of the crisis confronting us in all directions and just how important is what their ideas represent in terms of finding solutions rapidly.”
But putting masks on cows? Really? Not only does it sound ridiculous, it sounds rather inhumane.
“I feel rather sorry for the cow. Animals don’t tend to like wearing stuff on their faces if they can help it and I should think the first thing they are going to try and do is scrape that thing off on a fence post and the fields will be left full of plastic masks.” said British journalist Ross Clark, who added that cows “got to be able to eat and breathe.”
Clark also noted that the device does nothing to stop methane emissions from the animals’ other end.
“When methane’s emitting from the mouth you can’t sort of cover the whole thing which is why this device has only really claimed to capture 60 percent of the methane emitted through a cow’s mouth and nothing out the rear end,” Clark stated.
Centuries of Georges, Williams, Richards and now Chuckles the 1st.
Twitter user Perry Lucas summed it up well, saying “Our future King, Prince Charles backs a face mask device for cows that catches Methane emissions in order to stop climate change. Jesus….what is he smoking? Truly are living in clown world.”
Meanwhile, many climate scientists — even climate-fanatic scientists — have dismissed the notion that a trace gas such as methane has much, if any, effect on global warming. Some climate modelers have even omitted it from their models.
Physicist Dr. Tom Sheahen points out that any effect that methane (CH4) might have is essentially canceled out by water vapor already in the atmosphere.
“The ratio of the percentages of water to methane is such that the effects of CH4 are completely masked by H2O. The amount of CH4 must increase 100-fold to make it comparable to H2O,” Sheahen notes.
It’s germane to point out that Prince Charles is a high-profile proponent of the so-called Great Reset, a plan pushed by the World Economic Forum that would have the common people move on to other sources of protein rather than livestock. Insects, for instance, are good enough for us.
The same people are proposing huge new taxes on meat, which could eventually make it unaffordable to the masses.
These are clips from the headlines during Black History Month. It was to document how it was celebrated. I saw a lot of historical stories about those who lead significant lives, so I wondered how it was going currently.
What we were hoping for:
Every moment of greatness in our history belongs to all Americans, because the fruits of those triumphs have blessed all of us.
At the same time, there are both triumphs and tragedies that have been specific to the Black experience. The beautiful resistance against government tyranny that occurred at the Boston Tea Party was largely spurred by the killing of Black U.S. Army soldier Crispus Attucks by the British. Gospel, jazz and blues are beautiful, world unique musical forms that were born out of the Black experience in America. Let us celebrate those and other such triumphs during this month.
Black History Month was first officially recognized in our nation’s bicentennial year, 1976, by Republican president Gerald Ford. He encouraged Americans to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Indeed, in that era, those accomplishments were largely unrecognized if not intentionally neglected.
What started as a good and noble effort to recognize achievements, has been spun into hyphenated-American political fodder. It is now a prop for the Demos’ promotion of their “systemic racism” lie. Some leftist race-baiters have even asserted that because Black History Month is February, the shortest month of the year, that is evidence of “systemic racism.”
What we got instead:
Here’s what happened during the month instead of reaching for greatness, we got this.
2/1 BLM Canada buys an 8 million dollar mansion and no accountability for the money
2/1 Shocking video footage captured the moment a brawl broke out at a Pennsylvania Golden Corral which started after a customer was enraged over the buffet chef serving another man his steak before him.
The Friday night melee had involved more than 40 people at the Bensalem location as chairs were seen being thrown in the middle of the restaurant with onlookers and staff watching in horror as the fight continued to escalate.
2/1 BLM on destroying the family: The activist-driven curriculum for the Week of Action, which kicked off Monday, is based off the 13 “Black Lives Matter Guiding Principles.” Those principles include a commitment to restorative justice, being transgender affirming and queer affirming, creating space for black families that is “free from patriarchal practices,” and “the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the ‘collective village’ that takes care of each other.”
2/1 James Clyburn, D SC holds Biden hostage for a black female supreme court candidate, forever marking her as a token and opinions will be diminished on any case of race or gender (instead of someone on merit, including black and females because of their merit)
2/2 Whoopi Goldberg makes racist comments about the holocaust on the Spew and gets suspended for 2 weeks
2/2 The national arm of Black Lives Matter (BLM) on Feb. 2 shut down all of its online fundraising streams, shortly after California’s Department of Justice threatened to hold the organization to account over its “lack of financial transparency,” which includes at least $60 million in undisclosed donations.
2/2 Brian Flores gets fired from the Dolphins and claims racism and victimhood for losing. Update:
The Miami Dolphins have found their new head coach. He is bi-racial so the Dolphins are not racist, they just want a good coach.
The Dolphins announced Sunday night that they’ve hired former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel as the franchise’s new leader.
As far as the latest chapter in the never-ending story of privileged millionaires claiming victimhood status, Flores doubled down on stupid with his response to the hiring of the black Lovie Smith over his own black self. An insane public statement was released by his legal team that said the following:
“Mr. Flores is happy to hear that the Texans have hired a black head coach, Lovie Smith, as Mr. Flores’ goal in bringing his case is to provide real opportunities for black and minority candidates to be considered for coaching and executive positions in the NFL,” the statement read. “However, we would be remiss not to mention that Mr. Flores was one of three finalists for the Texans’ head coach position, and after a great interview and mutual interest, it is obvious that the only reason Mr. Flores was not selected was his decision to stand against racial inequality across the NFL.”
Translation? It was never about race, it was only about ME! No one wants a loser Brian.
2/2 For the first time, the Tennessee Senate on Wednesday voted to expel a senator, stripping Sen. Katrina Robinson of her elected position following her federal conviction on federal wire fraud charges.
2/2 Leon Harris, a former CNN host now working for a TV station in Washington, DC, was allegedly impaired when he tried to leave the scene of an auto crash in Maryland over the weekend, according to reports.
2/1 Miss USA, a black lawyer and having the world at her beckoning, instead jumps from the 30th floor in NY. She was a feminist and claimed victimhood. Neuroticism claimed another victim.
2/2 – Credible sexual assault charges against CNN host Don Lemon
2/2 Don Cornelius,Host of Soul Train exposed for abducting 2 girls at Playboy mansion for 3 days and sexually abusing them with wood bat
2/3 Alabama man beats girlfriend to death, A suspect identified as Cortez Lenard Warren, 32, has been charged in connection with the death of Madison Shea Pilkington, 25, whose family found her body Saturday, AL.com reported.
2/3 State Sen. Katrina Robinson of Memphis was convicted of wire fraud last fall after being accused of stealing $600,000 from a health care school she ran to pay for her wedding and other personal expenses before she was in office.
2/3 Timothy Briggs allegedly squeezed off 10 shots, which flew by a display of children’s toys during the wild Jan. 31 shooting. Two teens were injured in a gang related incident at a NYC Mall.
Briggs faces attempted murder and other charges while Jaheim Covington was hit with two counts of weapons possession. Both were ordered held without bail.
2/3 Vice President Kamala Harris continues to hemorrhage staff with the departure of yet another high-ranking member of her team.
Kate Childs Graham, Harris’ chief speechwriter, is leaving the vice president’s office at the end of the month. Staff are leaving citing abuse and demeaning behavior by the VP.
“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment. It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s—,” another source told Politico, which cited 22 current and former Harris aides in its report.
2/3 RICHMOND – Black Republican Aijalon Cordoza in the Virginia General Assembly said he was barred from joining the assembly’s Black Caucus because he wouldn’t tow the liberal line and wasn’t a democrat. That’s called discrimination.
2/3 ESPN and HBO personality Bomani Jones said bluntly and like a racist would say, that “white people” are the NFL’s problem following the Brian Flores lawsuit news. No, instead they fired a losing coach, which is what would happen to any losing coach. We’ve not heard much about this since.
2/3 No response from black leaders, BLM or any black official to this racist comment by Biden showing how partisan they are, demeaning the whole issue when they cry racism when they let this go by.
President Joe Biden referred to blacks as “colored” during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday during Black History Month. No mention in the mainstream media or by black leaders. I guess that saying isn’t a racist word anymore. Certain white people get a free pass.
Biden was telling the story of seeing “colored kids” on a bus when he moved from Scranton, Pa., to Claymont, Dela.
2/3 Black Lives Matter had to shut down all of its online fundraising streams late Wednesday afternoon, just days after California threatened to hold the charity’s leaders personally liable over its lack of financial transparency. Taxes haven’t been filed since 2020 and most money was collected from blue states over George Floyd’s victimhood.
2/4 Criminals across NewYorkCity were “emboldened” by the soft-on-crime memo released by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in the weeks before the deadly shooting of NYPD Officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, the leader of a prominent police union. This Soros bought off DA let criminals back on the street and isn’t prosecuting crimes starting with shoplifting, drugs and now robberies, so murders now.
“His message was sent to the criminal element. And this is why these cops were shot,” Paul DiGiacomo, president of New York City’s Detectives’ Endowment Association, said during a phone interview Thursday, “because you’re sending a message out there that there are no consequences for committing crimes and there are no consequences for resisting arrest.”
“Alvin Bragg thought he was doing what was popular to do, and it blew up in his face,” DiGiacomo added. Good job DA. Soros paid you off to allow more crime against black victims.
2/4 A UCLA basketball player was arrested in Arizona on Thursday and was facing an assault charge after allegedly spitting on a fan, authorities said.
Barstool Arizona, however, identified the arrested player as UCLA forward Mac Etienne.
2/4 Authorities in Kentucky have already locked up two defendants in connection with the brutal beating of a disabled Marine Corps veteran in June 2020. Now they’re trying to locate a woman who they claim is a third suspect in the case.
The at-large suspect, identified as Dairee Brown, 25, is accused of knocking on the victim’s apartment door in Covington, Kentucky, and blocking the peephole while her accomplices – Anthony Cornist, 62, and Robert Stone, 40
2/4 Vince Everett Ellison, the author of 25 Lies, explained that Democrats have formed an unholy alliance with The Iron Triangle of Black pastors, organizers, and leaders. They pretend they care about crime but they don’t. They always use terror, crime, murder to keep control. It’s a mechanism to maintain control.
The left never tries to empower individuals. Instead, they put roadblocks in front of them and force them to rely on Big Government. Mr. Ellison pointed to several lies of Joe Biden.
Ellison blames Blacks for the crime in cities. These ruthless leaders in the city have destroyed the family, the churches, economy, educational system because they want control.
2/4 NYC mayor Eric Adams makes racist statement about whites: “Every day in the police department, I kicked those crackers’ a–, man,” Adams said in the video reviewed by Fox News Digital. “I was unbelievable in the police department.” That is the equivalent of the white N-word. Good job guv. You don’t have to be white to be a racist.
2/4 Rapper C Blu was freed on bail last week for allegedly shooting a New York City officer is back behind bars on a probation violation for a prior gun case. Good career move.
2/4 In reading, 628 Patterson High School students took the test. Out of those students, 484 of them, or 77%, tested at an elementary school reading level. That includes 71 high school students who were reading at a kindergarten level and 88 students reading at a first-grade level. Another 45 are reading at a second-grade level. Just 12 students tested at Patterson High School, were reading at grade level, which comes out to just 1.9%. Patterson is 74% black and 7% white. Way to go teachers union.
2/5 While excusing slavery, human rights abuse and murder of Chinese citizens by the CCP, J.A. Adanda the director of sports journalism at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism said this on ESPN, “And who are we to criticize China’s human rights records when we have ongoing attacks by the agents of the state against unarmed citizens and we’ve got assaults on the voting rights of our people of color in various states in this country. So sports – I think it is possible and it’s necessary more than ever to just shut everything out if you are to enjoy the actual games themselves,” Adande told Reali.
2/6 Police in Virginia say the suspect accused of murdering one person and wounding four others in a shooting at a hookah lounge in Blacksburg late Friday night has been arrested.
The suspect, identified as Jamel D. Flint, 24, a black man of Roanoke, was apprehended Saturday following a manhunt,
2/6 A Black Lives Matter organizer in Memphis was sentenced to prison after she was convicted for illegally registering to vote. Pamela Moses, described by some outlets as the founder of a BLM chapter in Memphis, was sentenced to six years in prison last week after she was convicted in November 2021 for illegally registering to vote in Tennessee, according to prosecutors.
2/6 Kamala Harris has a hard time answering a simple question. Staffers say she won’t prepare or read briefing materials and then abuses her staff:
“What has gone wrong?”: Border Czar Kamala Harris struggles to answer a basic question about Biden’s historic border crisis pic.twitter.com/TW9G2D36dL
2/7 Alvin Kamara, the star NFL running back for the New Orleans Saints, was arrested Sunday shortly after playing in the Pro Bowl for his alleged involvement in a brutal beating the previous night inside a Las Vegas club.
Kamara was transported to the Clark County Detention Center, where the 26-year-old was booked for battery resulting in substantial bodily harm, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said. Police said the alleged victim identified Kamara as the suspect.
2/7 These tweets — with a photo showing Stacey Abrams maskless surrounded by masked children & showing Abrams promoting it from her own account — have now both been removed. (Abrams deleted her own tweet and it appears that the original account has been deactivated or something). pic.twitter.com/qzzAPolsE2
People pointed out: Hypocrisy, cruel to have kids in masks, kids are less likely to catch it, and masks are only supposed to help sick people not spread the virus. Also, the kids are not socially distanced. The social distance aspect is the most important part of not getting sick.
Abrams countered but did not address any of the criticism.
Instead, she used the race card because she knows it was stupid to post the photo.
2/7 A promotional ad from NBCUniversal marking Black History Month, which aired during Monday’s Today show, featured left-wing politicians and protesters but ignored Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and South Carolina Senator Tim Scott. The montage did include footage of late California Senator Shirley Chisholm, former President Barack Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris, and scores of Black Lives Matter protesters. Good job of being biased there NBC, as usual.
2/8 OROVILLE, Calif. – A 21-year-old man who was acting erratically opened fire inside a Greyhound bus in Northern California, killing a 43-year-old woman and wounding four others before he was arrested, naked, inside a Walmart after getting into a fight, authorities said.
Asaahdi Coleman started shooting at passengers as they exited the Los Angeles-bound bus after it stopped at a convenience store in the city of Oroville on Wednesday night, Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Thursday.
2/8 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — A 32-year-old man is accused of assaulting Williamson County Sheriff’s deputies last week during a court hearing.
The sheriff’s office says Roger Hathaway, of La Vergne, was in court for a hearing addressing charges from 2020 where he was arrested by Brentwood Police.
2/8 This is something that Black History Month should oppose with everything they’ve got, but alas, we only hear crickets:
The Biden administration is set to fund the distribution of crack pipes to drug addicts as part of its plan to advance “racial equity.”
The $30 million grant program, which closed applications Monday and will begin in May, will provide funds to nonprofits and local governments to help make drug use safer for addicts. Included in the grant, which is overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services, are funds for “smoking kits/supplies.” A spokesman for the agency told the Washington Free Beacon that these kits will provide pipes for users to smoke crack cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and “any illicit substance.”
2/8 Former NBA player Ty Lawson has reportedly been arrested in Europe.

2/12 Not even basketball is safe from flagrant fouls and poor sportsmanship,
Clemson guard David Collins committed an insanely dirty foul Thursday night during a loss to Duke.

2/15 Kentucky – The suspect arrested over the attempted assassination of Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg has been identified as BLM activist, Quintez Brown.
The Black Lives Matter movement has raised billions of dollars over the past several years. But no one seems to know how most of that money has been spent.
On 20 December 2020, The Economist noted that $10.6 billion had been pledged to causes and organisations affiliated with BLM. According to that article and further reporting from the right-leaning Daily Signal, BLM’s corporate donors included Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, 23andMe and Tinder, while recipients ranged from the small-scale Unicorn Riot guerilla media firm to the sizeable Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF).
As far as I can tell, no comprehensive or even partial audit of what happened to this staggering sum of money has ever taken place. Indeed, given the sheer number of corporate and NGO players involved, conducting one would be incredibly difficult. However, taking a look at the experience of just one BLM-affiliated organisation – BLMGNF – could give us an insight into what went on more broadly. The foundation’s story is truly remarkable.
Imagine that, stealing money.
2/16 A 9-year-old girl has died in Houston after getting shot during an unrelated robbery when the victim shot at the vehicle she was in with her family in the latest instance of gun violence that has injured or killed children in Texas’ largest city in recent weeks.

2/16 Both @BarackObama and @JoeBiden knew @HillaryClinton was engaging in these illegal acts to fabricate the Russia Hoax.@JohnBrennan of all people told the former President, and the current one came up with the idea to use an unused, unconstitutional law. The former President is a law breaker instead of a person of honor.
2/16 Fools names like fools faces are often seen in public places:
He is a BLM activist supported by Obama. That’s 2 strikes in one day for Obama.

2/17 Lee’s murderer, Assamad Nash, a black career criminal, had multiple court cases in his wake. Instead of being locked up, he followed Christina Lee to her Chinatown apartment and was caught covered in her blood. This latest crime by Nash may be serious enough that Soros DA Alvin Bragg will feel moved to actually prosecute him and ask for actual jail time. Maybe.
Black on Asian racism and crime, again. Why do blacks hate the Asians so much?
2/18 Black leaders on Rap Music:
Instead, it is full of paeans to those who are imitating gang members in jail without belts by wearing their pants low to show their underwear, spew the n-word, who wave wads of cash, and drink fancy cognac at strip clubs.
Some leading Black voices have raised these points in the past.
The controversial Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, exercised some influence with rap musicians and held a summit 20 years ago for hip hop entertainers.
Farrakhan spoke of deep regret at seeing rappers “being used by the enemy so that [Black people] will destroy each other.”
The late Stanley Crouch, a celebrated music critic, once wrote that rap had turned the image of young Black men into a damaging caricature of a “money-moving, gold chain-wearing, illiteracy-spouting, penis-pulling, sullen, combative buffoons.”
Harry Belafonte, the late singer, once described the rappers as “caught in a trick bag because it’s a way to make unconscionable sums of money and a way to absent yourself from any sense of moral responsibility.”
2/18 Police said Tony D. Earls, 41, was robbed and fired at the vehicle he incorrectly thought the suspect entered. The girl was taken to a hospital and was declared brain-dead, before her family decided to remove her life support, Fox 26 reported.
UPDATE #3: Sadly, the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences advised late this afternoon that the nine-year-old girl has been pronounced deceased. #HouNewshttps://t.co/X9dAEiFqHf
He was let out on bail that day. Why are these criminals allowed back on the street?
2/19 A Las Vegas woman was sentenced to eight to 20 years in prison Friday in the death of a 74-year-old man she shoved out the door of a bus in 2019.
Last month, Cadesha Bishop, 28, pleaded guilty to abuse of an older vulnerable person resulting in substantial bodily harm or death. She had originally been charged with murder, FOX 5 of Las Vegas reported.
All because she asked him to be nice to others. You’re really putting a good face on race relations there honey.
2/19 A six-time convicted felon with a pending felony drug case was charged earlier this month with throwing a bag containing $6,300 worth of individually-packaged heroin from a Lexus that belongs to the Chicago Police Department’s Chief of Internal Affairs, officials confirmed Wednesday.
Chief Yolanda Talley had loaned her car to her niece and the accused man, Kenneth Miles, is the niece’s boyfriend. Cops released Talley’s niece and allowed her to drive Talley’s car away.
Good job Yolanda. Keep track of everyone else, but let your own get away with crime.
2/19 Another hate hoax, like almost everyone that has happened, it was perpetrated by the same race it demeaned.
Cries of racism and demands for swift and strong justice have all but disappeared after it was revealed that a black student wrote the racist graffiti found at a California high school.
Last week, The Sacramento Bee reported that that the Sacramento City Unified School District was investigating racist graffiti written over a water fountain at C.K. McClatchy High School, noting that the message was a throwback to segregation
No wonder the rest of the world doesn’t buy into victimhood.
2/20 With the following in mind, why do blacks keep voting democrat? Is it the promise of free stuff in exchange for votes? Wise up and know you have been played.
2/20 What happens when you believe the media and those who use one race against another to divide people, a power grab tactic: A militant Black Lives Matter supporter arrested last week in the attempted murder of a Democratic mayoral candidate in Louisville once told a local magazine that he believed he was “at war” against perceived systemic racism in the U.S.
Quintez Brown, 21, was charged on Monday after allegedly barging into candidate Craig Greenberg’s office in Louisville and firing several shots. He is now under house arrest after a group run by Black Lives Matter posted his $100,000 bond.
A New York City Police Department (NYPD) spokesman told WNBC that Mbaye who is black, has 40 prior arrests. His record, which dates back to 2009, includes arrests for criminal possession of a weapon, assault, driving while intoxicated, and menacing, sources told the Post.
Additionally, he has 16 misdemeanor convictions on his record, prosecutors said.
“He was walking close to people moving and swinging his arm. I started watching him to see if he’d do anything,” Carmen said.
Then, she said, the man swung his arm, hitting 4 year old Angel in the face, causing him to fall backwards onto the pavement.
Hitting kids, good job there. Make your people proud of you.
2/20 One of America’s biggest criminals, Hillary Clinton has taken over the BLM money. Blacks will never see that again like Haiti didn’t see the relief money the Clinton organization was supposed to manage to help rebuild from a hurricane. They stole it like they’ll steal from BLM. Wise up guys. You got 90 million and Patrice only stole a few million for her houses before she got out.
Black Lives Matter filings reveal prominent Democratic lawyer Marc Elias and another longtime ally of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have taken on key roles in the charity amid scrutiny over its leadership and finances. Elias, best known for his funding of British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s discredited anti-Trump dossier while he served as Clinton’s 2016 campaign general counsel, appears to be representing the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation through his recently formed Elias Law Group. BLM’s national organization repeatedly lists the Elias firm as one of its addresses and states in its short-year 2020 Form 990 that its books were now in the care of the Elias Law Group.
Get rid of them now, or your money is gone.
2/21 Michigan men’s basketball coach Juwan Howard struck a Wisconsin assistant coach during a postgame altercation on Sunday, setting off a fight between the teams that prompted Michigan’s athletic director to apologize and will almost certainly result in disciplinary action against Howard.
Way to be a role model Juwan. Good luck with that job.
SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. – Three suspects were busted in connection to a retail crime ring on Monday. The suspects were accused of stealing thousands of dollars in lingerie items.
The California Highway Patrol recovered 329 lingerie items, valued at more than $16,000. The underwear were allegedly stolen from Victoria’s Secret and Pink stores in malls across California.
CHP identified the suspects as 20-year-old Shyonie Davis, of San Francisco; 21-year-old Ahjanae Woods, of Antioch; and 18-year-old Wessaun Johnson, of Antioch. All three were booked into San Diego County jails, according to CHP.
The size of the bra cups told me their names. They were biggun’s.
2/21 Public Health Insider reported, “Bike helmets save lives and help prevent serious injuries. A review of several published studies estimates that bike helmets provide a 63-88% reduction in the risk of head and brain injuries for people who ride bikes. As part of the movement to encourage the use of bike helmets, the King County Board of Health passed a law in 1993 requiring anyone riding a bike to wear a helmet.
“However, data presented to the Board of Health has shown racist and discriminatory enforcement. Seattle Police Department data collected and analyzed by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and the Helmet Law Working Group shows that police disproportionately gave helmet law citations to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color cyclists.
“Their analysis found that Black riders were nearly four times as likely to be cited by police for not wearing a helmet while biking compared to White riders.
Helmets aren’t racist. They protect you from head injuries. Don’t be a dumbass. They’ll give you one for free if you can’t afford it. Racists are racist.
2/21 New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell was pictured partying maskless during an indoor Mardi Gras event Friday night, despite reinstating the city’s COVID-19 mask mandate for schools and indoor public spaces just weeks ago.
Do as I say, not as I do. Not a good leader there girl. People notice this hypocrisy.
2/22 Progressive leaders have ushered in criminal justice reforms theoretically intended to rectify the imbalance of Black Americans who are arrested, convicted and incarcerated. But in practice, in cities like New York, these reforms have backfired, resulting in a spike in crime, with more Black Americans victimized and incarcerated. Count on democrats to promise blacks free stuff and then continue to ruin black lives and families with policies. They only care about getting black votes and not much else.
2/22 VP Harris embarrasses herself and the country over the Russia/Ukraine dispute:
Many observers were not inspired by Vice President Kamala Harris’s trip to Munich over the weekend, arguing her press conference proved she was woefully unprepared to address the geopolitical crisis brewing on Ukraine’s border.
Harris traveled to Munich to meet with several European allies in hopes of securing a united front in the event that Russia’s Vladimir Putin decides to invade Ukraine. She met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and promised “severe” economic sanctions if Russia releases its troops. However, both she and President Biden have said that Putin has already made up his mind on a potential invasion.
“I mean, listen guys, we are talking about the potential for war in Europe,” Harris said. “I mean, let’s really take a moment to understand the significance of what we’re talking about.”
Viewers called her remarks “word salad” and concluded she was “perpetually unprepared” for the critical foreign policy moment.
Give her credit for being more coherent than Biden. Although that is like putting whipped cream on a pile of dog shit. Russia invaded a couple of days later.
2/22 After 22 days of embarrassment, GOOD NEWS!
When she was a little girl, Winsome Sears emigrated to America from Jamaica. Years later, she chose to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps because, she says, “America had always been good to my family and me.”
Today, Sears is again serving her adopted country, this time as Virginia’s lieutenant governor. She made history when she was elected Nov. 2 to become the first black woman to hold that office.
Being where she is, Sears says, she is reminded of the opportunities that America affords, and that she is “an overcomer, ” adding that “many black people are overcomers.”
“I am here in the former capital of the Confederacy, for goodness sake,” she says. “I am second in command. Second in command. I’m a black woman. I am not first-generation American.”
2/22 Two black teenaged boys are in custody in connection to a triple murder after a five-year-old Michigan boy was killed execution-style inside his Detroit home along with his mother and her boyfriend.
Caleb Harris, who had been shot multiple times in the face, was found Sunday inside the home along with his mother, Lashon Marshall, 28, and her boyfriend, Aaron Benson, 32, according to Detroit Police. Police wouldn’t say how Marshall and Benson might have been killed.
Black lives matter? It doesn’t seem that way.
2/22 The alleged leader of a Philadelphia carjacking ring tied to two murders was arrested last week and could be linked to other incidents, authorities said Tuesday.
Jonathan Akubu, 28, was taken into custody Friday following a weeks-long crime spree, officials said. He is now charged with arson, conspiracy to commit carjacking, aggravated assault and with the Feb. 6 murder of George Briscella, a Marine Corps veteran and the son of a Philadelphia police officer, and the Feb. 12 killing of Aiah Gbessay.
Every day it’s the same story. Crime and a lack of morals. Where are the black leaders except to play victims to extort money in the name of racism?
2/23 Three commissioners were overwhelmingly re-called because of a racist agenda that even SF couldn’t get behind. People are getting tired of woke and racism.
Parents and residents in San Francisco voted to recall the three left-wing members last week, as The Daily Wire reported. Citizens launched the effort targeting President Gabriela López, Vice President Faauuga Moliga, and Commissioner Alison Collins last month alleging the members were not focusing on schools reopening during COVID-19 and sought to rename 44 schools based on politics.
They are whining of victimhood because they didn’t get their way. No one likes false victimhood either. Crying racism at every time you don’t get your way is running out of steam, like crying wolf.
2/23 Zac Stacy has been charged with three counts of misdemeanor domestic violence battery and two counts of misdemeanor criminal mischief in connection with an alleged 2021 attack on his ex-girlfriend.
An NFL athlete beating the hell out of a girl. You’re a real man there Zac. Enjoy jail. You did it in front of the kids so way to be a stand up Dad also, asshole.
2/23 The day after Kamala Harris went to the Ukraine to resolve the dispute with Russia, Putin attacked. She was shrugged off like a fly on a horses ass. Putin barely recognized that she exists. No one has been more insignificant as she is as a VP, having already failed the country with the southern border debacle. Nice goin’ girl.
2/25 Two of the co-founders of cryptocurrency derivatives exchange BitMEX have pleaded guilty to violating U.S. anti-money-laundering law and agreed to each pay a $10 million fine.
Arthur Hayes and Benjamin Delo admitted to violating the Bank Secrecy Act’s anti-money-laundering provisions during a hearing Thursday in New York federal court. Both men entered the pleas after reaching agreements with prosecutors.
2/25 In an affirmative action motivated hire, instead of considering the best talent which would include a black man, President Joe Biden planned to nominate federal appellate judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to become the first Black woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, a source familiar told Reuters on Friday.
Were he to promote only a white woman, this would be the discrimination as his current pick is. She will forever be tainted in cases that involve either gender or race as the pick is discriminatory. It is a shame for black women to be branded with this scarlet letter.
“Judge Jackson’s record of reversals by the left-leaning D.C. Circuit is troubling for anyone concerned about the rule of law,” Judicial Crisis Network president Carrie Severino told Fox News Digital on Tuesday. “For example, in Make the Road New York v. Wolf, a D.C. Circuit panel composed of a majority of Democratic nominees concluded that Jackson had set aside a Trump administration rule where there was no legal basis to do so.”
“Cases like these suggest that Jackson might be willing in politically charged cases to ignore the law to deliver a particular policy outcome, and that’s not what we want to see from a Supreme Court justice,” she continued.
2/25 Darth Stupid Lloyd Austin said this:
Earlier in a report from the Washington Examiner, yesterday, SecDef Lloyd Austin told lawmakers that “the Biden administration is looking for ways to help train Ukrainian forces remotely.” This isn’t a joke. This was something said by a member of the Biden Administration. As Russian forces roll over Ukraine, Biden and Austin want to train the Ukrainian forces remotely.
The man is unqualified to be anything but being in the Washington deep state system. He is an embarrassment to black politicians for being an uncle Tom to the Biden administration.
2/26 At least 23 of America’s 25 most prestigious medical colleges and universities have some form of mandatory student training or coursework on ideas related to critical race theory (CRT), according to CriticalRace.org, which monitors CRT curricula and training in higher education.
“The racialization of medical school education is troubling. It’s one thing to recognize the health needs of different populations, it’s entirely different to inject racial politics into medical care. Demanding that medical school students become activists is dangerous,” William Jacobson told Fox News Digital.
2/26 The time that has elapsed since the launch of the left’s racial witch hunt has provided ample opportunity to expose the malicious, self-serving criminal agendas of the Black Lives Matter movement. These have nothing to do with the welfare of black communities, which have not received a penny of the tens of millions of dollars raised in their name. Contributions to Black Lives Matter have gone to line the pockets and enhance the real estate portfolios of its leaders. Meanwhile, the chief victims of the homicides unleashed by their actions have been poor black inner-city communities — with no show of concern by Black Lives Matter and its allies.
2/27 – Green anti-racism, seriously (Oh, really just CRT lies)?
But it doesn’t have to actually make sense for it to be rhetorically effective. The Left has learned that whenever you have a problem, you call it racist.
And whenever you want something to appear ideal, you say it’s ‘eco-friendly’.
So green anti-racism is logically where you should end up if youre pretending to care about these marginalized groups and their living spaces (although this does smack as a very heteronormative idea to my cisgender ear since there’s no mention of “Ecosexuality“).
Even if we made a genuinely good-faith attempt at extrapolating some vague meaning from the concept of ‘environmental racism’, you have to ignore large swathes of reality to get there.
Let’s pretend that environmental problems disproportionately affect marginalized communities and this is a serious source of harm…Are these theorists saying it’s entirely purposeful? Are there white male uber-capitalists sipping brandy and pushing toxic waste playing chips across the Risk board to ‘racialized’ neighborhoods?
This is exactly the assertion and is a direct outgrowth of CRT. As Critical Race skeptic James Lindsay accurately points out: “CRT is the belief system that racism which benefits white people is the fundamental organizing principle of society”.
2/27 Loud proponent for inequality, the poor and downtrodden Meghan Markle donned a custom Christopher John Rogers dress worth an estimated $2,600 adorned with $9,000 in jewels, (and a $348,000 engagement ring) as she stood alongside husband Prince Harry on Saturday night to accepted the President’s Award at the NAACP Image Awards.
This drips with hypocrisy, oh well.
2/28 Still failing as a leader, Obama said this to Romney in 2012. It may have been the only thing Romney got right, but it shows how wrong Obama was with respect to vision and leadership.
2/28 CRT exposes as just Marxism in a thinly veiled cover to have racism switch sides against non POC.
In Race Marxism, James Lindsay carefully and with robust scholarship shows how Critical Race Theory is nothing more than repackaged Marxism. As practitioners of Marxism have failed to divide this country against each other by class, they have turned to racial division to enact their agenda as well as to gain power and influence.
With precision that highlights his math background, Lindsay deftly demonstrates that Critical Race Theory = Race Marxism.
Though the six chapters of Race Marxism, Lindsay explains what Critical Race Theory is, where it comes from, how it is implemented, and what can be done about it once it is understood to be repackaged Marxism. Lindsay offers a broad spectrum of quotes and background information supplied from proponents and Critical Race Theory activists.
(1) Calling everything one wants to control “racist” until it is fully under your control. (2) A Marxian conflict theory of race; i.e., Race Marxism (3) A belief that racism created by white people for their own benefit is the fundamental organizing principle of society
Another Memphis rapper has been shot and killed … just in the last few months. All meaningless deaths that could have been avoided.
Snootie Wild succumbed to his injuries after being shot Friday in Houston. His death was announced Saturday night on his Instagram page … “Gone in body, but your NAME & LEGACY will live forever! #TeamYayo4Life.”
2/28 In a blatant example of how Biden takes the black vote for granted and used it as a political chess piece:
Joe Biden is now smearing Republicans from his presidential podium with an ugly falsehood, saying that Republicans are trying to prevent black votes from even counting:
This is another one of Biden’s despicable race-baiting lies and he did it at a Black History Month celebration.
There’s no truth to this claim whatsoever and everyone knows it. But the media will let him get away with this garbage because they want to defeat Republicans, despite one brave CNN host debunking his lies earlier this year.
The end of girls sports can be blamed on feminism and the Ivy League. They have failed to stand up for the females and have bowed the knee to political correctness by letting men kick ass on the rest of the girls and the record book. Of all groups, you’d think the pink pussy hat group of cackling Karen’s would at least stand up for their own.
The Ivy League are supposed to be smart people producing smart people. They are revealing a new level of stupidity that only the woke could deliver at this level of idiocy. They continue to under perform in producing a quality education experience and over perform in the price charged for this lack of education. They are good at woke though. It’s no coincidence that they are the premier of the left also.
The rest of us in the real world (the one’s who think they are elite call us the flyover states) know that men are stronger than women and that this is ruining things for girls sports.
Lia Thomas Breaks Pool Record of Olympian Kate Ziegler In 500 Freestyle Win at Ivy League Champs
One night after posting the fastest split in the 800-yard freestyle relay, the University of Pennsylvania’s Lia Thomas captured her first individual title at the Ivy League Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships. Thomas, a transgender woman, produced a winning time of 4:37.32, which was more than seven seconds quicker than the 4:44.83 clocked by teammate Catherine Buroker for second place.
A three-year member of Penn’s men’s team, Thomas transitioned to female during the COVID-19 pandemic and is in her first season as a member of the women’s team. Her performance at the Ivy League Champs established a Blodgett Pool record, breaking the mark of Olympian Kate Ziegler, and just missed the meet record of 4:36.37, set in 2020 by Ellie Marquardt of Princeton. Marquardt was third on Thursday night in 4:46.63.
One of the few times I have anything good to say about social media, they cheered the second place finisher who was an actual girl in the women’s events.
Since no one will call out the tranny’s for ruining Title IX and girls sports, guys have turned it into co-ed sports.
I’m a mom, a coach and a Team USA World Masters track athlete who is fighting for something greater than another gold medal: I’m standing for the protection of women’s sports.
If male-bodied athletes continue competing on female teams, it will be the end of women’s sports. This is no exaggeration; this is reality, and it’s happening right now.
At the 2018 World Masters Athletics Championships in Málaga, Spain, I competed in the 200-meter race against a male-bodied athlete, whom I beat by only a few tenths of a second. The next year, the same athlete beat my teammate in the hurdles for a place on the podium at the 2019 World Championship indoor meet in Poland. My teammate had trained harder than anyone I know.
It wasn’t just on the world stage that I experienced the demoralizing trend of male-bodied athletes displacing females from their own competitions; it was also on my home island of Maui, Hawaii.
Instead of being known for being nice and apologizing, (eh), we now have dictatorial government more beholden to Klaus Schwab (WEF) than the people, who takes money from your bank account if you say you liked Trump or support Truck Drivers.
As for me:

Ottawa will even take away your pets. What will happen to your pets? Breitbart News reported:
While other branches of the Humane Society describe themselves as “no-kill” shelters, such as the Etobicoke Humane Society, a 2015 article on the Ottawa Humane Society website, written by Executive Director Bruce Roney, notes the shelter does euthanize animals.
After no one gave a shit that they were off, combined with them not getting money for work they did in the 70’s, the two whiners quietly came back to Spotify.
It turns out that their hippie culture couldn’t override greed and capitalism. That and Joe Rogan is way more popular. So much in fact that everyone was willing to let the two Karen’s go away to keep him.
Many people also realized that they like free speech and that Rogan had some actual scientists with facts that turned out to be true about Covid and Climate Change. The two pot addled brains who thought there was someone who cared about their him or me stance gave up in less than a week.
I like Joni Mitchell’s music, but Young’s is crap since he left CSNY. I missed neither.
Now maybe if we stand up to other celebtards, woke, politicians, libtards, the LGBFJBQ+ and others that make everyone miserable, we could enjoy our lives a lot more. Assholes like Young and Mitchell don’t live in the real world. They got their asses yanked back into it quickly.
On his podcast this week, Democratic strategist James Carville cursed out unvaccinated individuals on his podcast last week, saying anyone without a vaccine was a “piece of s–t” and he wanted to punch them in the face.
This is how I know he is a coward. When you talk big like that, you obviously don’t know what it is to fight, nor have you been in a real one recently. He is asking for an ass whooping which he would get if he tried by looking at his skinny ass.
I’ve studied martial arts for decades and have had many fights (in the dojo). I’ve learned the best fight is the one you don’t have to have. I also have learned that those who can fight don’t brag. It is the show off’s who spout off about how they can fight. They get their ass kicked. They are the biggest cowards that hide behind big talk. It’s like when Joe Biden said he wanted to take Trump behind a building and beat him up. Trump would have kicked his ass. Trump didn’t dignify this because he knew Biden was all talk and also a coward.
So, I’m calling out Carville as a pussy and think he should challenge Joe Rogan. That is where most of his anger is coming from. I’d buy PPV on that one, all the while knowing that it would last one punch or a ju-jitsu hold which Carville the pussy would be crying from….after they woke him up.
Worst of all though, he’s showing how under educated he is on both Covid and the vaxx. The man is showing a tremendous lack of knowledge based on what he’s saying. I’d rather have a sit down discussion about the pro’s and con’s of the effects of the jab and how to prevent Covid. I realize he is just carrying the water for the democrats, it’s his job. He should invite Rogan on his show. It’s far more civilized, unlike his podcast or his coward talk.
Kamala is wrong. It isn’t in the same universe as December 7th, 1941 or September 11, 2001. I think the president’s brain is an elevator stuck between floors right now, so I don’t really listen to what he has to say. It’s elder abuse what they are doing to him right now.
Nevertheless, the media (MSM), congress, those in political trouble and the celebtards have it wrong.
There have been many intrusions into congress including a bomb. None of that happened on January 6th.
Stop blowing smoke and get to reality like solving the supply chain, actually doing something to cure Covid, fix inflation, bring down gas prices, hell anything other than what they are doing.
Just like trying to impeach a president who wasn’t even in office when Covid was raging across the country, the assholes on parade in the house will prance around with the Media (MSM) instead of trying to solve important issues, say the supply chain or let the people arrested a year ago be given a fair treatment.
Oh, FakeBook Facistbook will ban anyone one who actually represents freedom of speech about it along with Twatter and the other hate groups.
We need to stop this nonsense and get about putting our country back on track. They haven’t accomplished anything other than helping themselves to money for a year now.
I recently heard that Keeping up with the Kardashians is over. I didn’t know that.
The reason is, I’ve never watched an episode, a clip from an episode, a review of it, or even thought about watching it, or caring.
I’m told that it went for somewhere in the teens in number of years that it aired, but I didn’t bother to look it up for this post because I’d have to care and I might find out something about it. I prefer not to know.
I loathe celebtards. I know how Kim got famous. I know what their Dad did for OJ. I know that Bruce thinks he can pretend to be a girl, but I’d already cheered him at the 76 Olympic Decathlon. There was a bio on him and his first wife as he was training for the men’s event.
I’m proud to never have been a part of this culture sewer ever, and plan to not be a part of the next.
Equality of outcome is communism. The benefit of a degree from such a school would mean that you were the elite. Now, you don’t know if they worked hard and learned or coasted. The Harvard benefit is meaningless now.
Real Equality is equal opportunity. People will decide the real outcome no matter what Harvard says because human nature dictates that some will do better or worse than others. To not acknowledge that shows a lack of understanding of history and lack of intelligence. That is what Harvard is striving towards with this Diktat.
Save your money and go to a real school where meritocracy will give you a real education.
Harvard panelists want ‘bold societal change’ which includes ‘equality of outcomes’
Panelists at a Harvard University event on equity last Friday called for “bold societal change” to eradicate the vestiges of racism and sexism.
This includes, according to at least one participant, ensuring “equality of outcomes.”
The Truth and Transformation Conference, hosted by the Kennedy School Ash Center’s Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project, was hosted by Harvard American Studies PhD candidate Mary McNeil, The Crimson reports.
McNeil’s dissertation asks in part “What critiques did [Black, Native, and Afro-Native peoples] proffer of [Massachusetts] as a crucial site in the development of an anti-Black, settler-colonial nation?”
Asian Americans Advancing Justice President John Yang told the panel “it is important to acknowledge that racial groups experience racism differently.” Eschewing the concept of equal treatment for everyone, Yang said “[T]hat’s not right, because the reality is, different communities have suffered in different ways.”
Yang backs efforts to combat alleged “disinformation,” saying platforms like Facebook and Twitter need to be better at it: “Let’s be clear: there is a campaign out there that is trying to distort a lot of what is happening in society […] part of it is on all of us to make sure that we are contributing to getting the right information that is out there” (emphasis added).
AAAJ purports to “advocate for an America in which all Americans can benefit equally from, and contribute to, the American dream.” Which means it lobbies for progressive initiatives du jour,like overturning former President Trump’s misnamed “Muslim ban.”
Panelist Eric Ward, director of the Western States Center, said all of society needs to “invest in transforming power structures to achieve aspirations surrounding equity.” He added that “recognizing systemic racism and sexism is key to ensuring that everyone can ‘live, love, worship, and work free from fear and bigotry.’”
Perhaps the most eye-raising statement was from panelist Halima Begum, chief executive of the Runnymede Trust, allegedly the United Kingdom’s “leading independent race equality think tank.” Begum said “non-governmental institutions, such as news platforms and corporations, are also responsible for ensuring ‘equality of outcomes.’”
I can’t lose any more respect for Harvard because I don’t have any. They just met my expectations that are already at the bottom of the barrel.
For decades, we’ve been told that the population of the earth is one of the causes of many of our problems and only by reducing it (Bill Gates) will we survive.
This is either something that is a global destruction issue (like the dinosaur extinction) or is just more climate scare tactics (yes, it is the same group claiming the death of the planet by weather also). Certainly history will be the judge but so far none of the climate extinction events have come true (such as from an Inconvenient Truth FWIW).
NOW WE HAVE THE TEST – SEX
One would think that if you were holed up with someone else, sooner or later it would lead to babies in 9 months. I get that there is birth control but we’ve seen that people are inconsistent and sooner or later it happens. Look at office sex. A lot of people wind up doing it with co-workers they’d never touch except for familiarity.
However, we find that this is not the case. People have stopped bumping uglies.
CBS obtained data from health departments in over two dozen states that shows “a 7% drop in births in December—nine months after the first lockdowns began.”
Research from the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., predicts that births may well be down 300,000 to 500,000 in 2021.
Brookings also notes, contrary to what the romantics thought would happen, that surveys of couples, particularly those with young children at home, report declines in sexual activity.
But these COVID-related hits to birth rates really attach to a trend of declining fertility rates in the U.S. that has been going on for years.
WHO ISN’T DOING THE DIRTY?
The U.S. fertility rate in 1900 was almost 4, more than double today’s rate. Please don’t tell me it was because times were so much more safe and certain over a century ago.
In a 2019 Pew Research survey, 16% said having children is essential for a man to have a fulfilling life. Twenty-two percent said it is essential for a woman to have a fulfilling life.
In the same survey, 57% said that “having a job or a career they enjoy” is essential for a man to have a fulfilling life. Forty-six percent said “having a job or career they enjoy” is essential for a woman to have a fulfilling life.
Regarding being married, 16% said it is essential for a man to have a fulfilling life, and 17% said it is essential for a woman to have one.
This data, I think, sheds light on why Americans are not having children. It’s not because times are so hard. Every time is challenging, and Americans are more comfortable and prosperous today than ever in history.
Maybe the Brookings scholars will be right about having 300,000 fewer births in the U.S. in 2021 because of COVID-19.
They get picked on for being losers, but the millennials and Gen-X,Y and now Z are not holding their own. There is a reason for a generation of Baby Boomers. They came home from war and got busy about life. Boomers had the hippie sex and love days so they held up their end of the deal.
Humor here: Maybe all the drugs that the Boomers did is why we have screwed up generations that follow. The boomers got out of the parents basements and for the most part never returned.
WHAT WE WILL FIND OUT ABOUT OVERPOPULATION
Now we will see if the over population alarmists are right (no) or are they full of it to try and get money (the usual reasons). With the younger generation just not doing it to the fill the needs of replenishing our population minimums it’s going to go down. We will then get to see if there is enough food (yes), land (yes) and will people kill the earth (no).
The population scare tactics crowd will not stop until they move onto the next scare to try to get us to part with part of our paychecks so that congress can waste it.
Judge for yourself. I think we have the technology to farm all the food we need and people haven’t been able to change the temperature more than a tenth or two (not even proven yet scientifically, no the science isn’t settled yet).
Here’s my advice. Get busy at getting busy. The planet is resilient. We need the kids and generations prior to ours survived actual million death events unlike Covid. The death count is so overstated and incorrectly calculated that by just correcting for actual Flu deaths would make what it is, less significant were it not an election year in 2020
It doesn’t take many posts for you to see that I think Fake book and Twatter are the cesspools of the Internet. More hate is spilled there than Iran towards Israel and the USA.
I happily quit both. My life is better and while I didn’t waste a lot of time on them, it still was mostly useless.
I always hated those friend recommendations because I’m sure they were on the other side also. My rule was if you aren’t my friend then you aren’t worth being my fake book friend either. I happily forgot most of the people I grew up with and didn’t want to find them again, let alone reconnect.
It’s as bad as a phone call for an introvert without first warning that you are about to intrude on my life. There was an introvert on the team that invented texting to avoid that phone call.
When I saw this one, I realized that it was time to dump fake book. I also can’t stand that they are the arbiters of free speech and who is allowed on, so I made the decision for them. I don’t want to be in a place of hate or that has special rules for people who they don’t agree with personally, and went to other platforms that don’t suggest people I’d rather not see or hear from again in life.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some good things, but sooner or later it goes down the crapper when someone “offends” another. It is where you can find more bias and discrimination (against anyone and everyone) since segregation.
Twitter is probably the biggest cesspool. Since Facebook Fake Book started censoring, you can’t trust what is real or not. I also don’t care about my high school or college enough to see what they are doing. If either of us cared, we’d have stayed in contact.
The hate generated against the last President just told me the people in charge of these platforms are untrustworthy. They say one thing and do another.
Do what you want. Most are addicted to social media. The truly smart people don’t waste time trying to impress others as to how good their life is or worry about what others have.
My life is better without social media terrorists. I still get what I need to know without it being filtered by a loser in a cubicle with an axe to grind over who voted for whom. The elitist oligarch’s have told them what is allowed, then they prattle on condemning exactly what they are doing.
As usual, I’ll just do my own thing and let others suffer who wish to read that tripe.
Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can. – Paul Tournier
Rocket Scientist Ozan Varol wrote this about winning:
1. You think you can’t do something.
2. You’re forced to do it (or you’re brave enough to try).
3. You find out that you actually can.
Winning is a habit. Seals and champions know how to win by practice and banning any thoughts of giving up. A lot of winning (or just succeeding, which is a win for some) is beating your mind. When you give yourself positive thoughts and remember how you’ve achieved success in the past you’ve accomplished a lot of the battle.
Life is a fight sometimes. It is always a fight for some. Winners don’t win by accident. They learn how to win, but they thought they were going to win.
In an interview about being in the zone, Hall of Fame players were asked about being in the zone. Most said it happened once in a while but couldn’t predict it. Dan Marino said he was in the zone for 17 years because he thought he could win.
Don’t give up. Take the challenge bit by bit and be a winner.
I worked with the press for decades. The ones I worked with were nice people, but they had to write something that people will read, until now. Journalists are supposed to (try to) and learn about the subject they are covering. Now they write ridiculous stories and then write the opposite. They don’t even bother to fact check anymore. No one reads corrections so they don’t care, and it shows. I can’t even say this current lot are nice. If you see below, they aren’t well liked either.
Lately, they have been circling the wagons to cover one side of the political scene or the other together. They are exposing themselves to the public as to how little they know or how little they want to hide their bias. A bunch of them just want to jam on the president out of spite, but they are either self-owning or he is swatting them like flies, especially Jim Acosta.
Twitter/Twitchy caught on and now instead of lawyer jokes, it is journalist jokes. For the most part, this lot deserves what they are getting. They are now as useless to regular people as celebtards and sports stars trying to give their opinion on something other than their sport.
The hashtag is #JournalistJokes, go see for yourselves. Here is a list of some as a starter. Others are more creative than me.
“Three journalists walk into a building. You’d think one of them would’ve seen it.”
“What’s 5 miles long and has an IQ of 30?” “A JOURNALIST PARADE!”
“Three journalists walk into bar and say ‘ouch’ – then write stories about how the bar is racist and phobic.”
“How does a journalist change a light bulb? He holds while the whole world revolves around him.”
And Twitchy’s pick for the winner: “What are the best four years of a journalist’s life? Third grade.”
“Why are there only 2 pallbearers at a ‘journalist’s funeral?” “Garbage cans only have two handles.”
“How do you make a journalist’s eyes light up?” “Shine a flashlight in his ear.”
“What do you call 25 skydiving journalists?” “Skeet.”
“How do you get a one-armed journalist out of a tree?” “Wave to them.”
“What’s the difference between a smart journalist and Bigfoot?” “Bigfoot has been spotted.”
“Why can’t a ‘journalist’ dial 911?” “She can’t find the eleven.”
“What do you do if a journalist throws a grenade at you?” “Pick it up, pull the pin out, and throw it back.”
“What’s the different between God and a journalist?” “God doesn’t think he’s a journalist.”
I originally named this blog Delusions of Adequacy after a political campaign that described themselves as not having delusions of grandeur. I have decided (for now) to write about people, places and things that are delusional as a category. I borrowed the idea from F1Rejects, although my writings will not be about rejects, just those who don’t realize that they fall short in others eyes.
So when do you have only delusions of adequacy?
I read this story in the WSJ about those who were retiring/resigning and were they lame ducks. Having witnessed it throughout my career in business and socially on a constant basis, I realized that the minute you have announced your intention to move on the perception of reality is that you are a lame duck. Additionally, when you are not effective in others eyes, again you are a lame duck or just perhaps lame.
The article states:
Steve Ballmer above.
Steve Ballmer tried hard to show he was no lame duck after announcing last summer that he would step down as Microsoft Corp.’s MSFT -0.59% chief executive within a year.
“If you are a lame duck, your company is not moving forward,” he said in a March 17 interview. “You don’t want to get into an inaction period.”
Amid a spate of executive departures announced many months in advance, top bosses at big companies are figuring out how to stay in charge during their long goodbyes. These lengthy lead times give boards extra time to find replacements, but they also create uncertainty within a company as workers wonder who is actually in charge and would-be successors publicly jockey for attention.
Regardless of what he says, people are sucking up to the new leader and don’t care nearly as much about Steve the minute he said he’s leaving. Folks I know at Microsoft couldn’t wait for him to go, not to mention a good portion of the tech industry.
NOT EVEN THE PRESIDENT IS EXEMPT
Except for the liberal portion of the Democrat party, people are backing away from Obama. Those running for election, most notably Kay Hagen and Hillary Clinton who can’t get far enough away from him to get elected.
As far as getting any legislation he wants passed, the opposition controls only 1/2 of 1/3rd of the power yet he can’t get anything accomplished since his re-election. Most presidents are lame ducks only after an election that he doesn’t win or can’t run for, but he was labeled a lame duck almost as soon as the 2012 election was complete.
Remember the red line in Syria? He refused to back it up. Now leaders and terrorist factions know he is all talk. That is an example of lame duck actions. It also could be interpreted as all talk no action, but that is a road I don’t want to go down in this post. Let the reader decide for themselves.
As stated by many, perception is reality. When there is any doubt that you are a lame duck, you are. It undermines your ability to lead and be respected. Sometimes you announce that you are leaving, sometimes it happens because you are ineffective. Either way, it is real.
