12th Imam on the brink

No, not the 12th Man of Texas A&M fame (where Mr. Boy is working this summer and taking two courses) but the mystical one involved with Shiite Armageddon and the imposition of Islamic law on the world.

Shooting down a U.S. Navy drone is a good way to start one…

Rule 5: Sabine Gruchet

Montana glaciers refuse to melt

Climate scientists have been revising their predictions of Montana glacier disappearance regularly since 1941. They have to. The damn thing refuses to pay attention to global warming/climate change. They’ve revised it recently to 2044, “which is almost a century later than the original forecast,” says Tony Heller of realclimatesciences.com.

It’s like the supposed death of the polar bears. Which also hasn’t happened no matter how fat Al Gore’s bank account continues to grow.

The origins of PC

“The totalitarian nature of Political Correctness is revealed nowhere more clearly than on college campuses, many of which at this point are small ivy covered North Koreas, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the gender feminist or the homosexual-rights activists, or the local black or Hispanic group, or any of the other sainted “victims” groups that PC revolves around, quickly find themselves in judicial trouble.

“Within the small legal system of the college, they face formal charges – some star-chamber proceeding – and punishment. That is a little look into the future that Political Correctness intends for the nation as a whole.”

Written nineteen years ago and still relevant, prophetic even.

Liberal censorship grows

“There’s no easy way out of this mess—perhaps no way out at all. All of the solutions that have thus far been proposed—breaking up the tech monopolies, removing federal Section 230 protections from social media platforms, and creating alternatives to them—are fraught with possible unintended consequences that could make things even worse.

“Whistleblowers like Cochran offer some hope. Perhaps there are more who will come forward to expose what’s going on in the board rooms and on Slack channels at the Big Tech giants. And maybe, just maybe, they’ll realize that marginalizing half of America is bad for business and change their ways. Don’t hold your breath.”

Hong Kong’s last stand

Mrs Charm’s good friend Michele Kay Schultz, came up in Hong Kong for part of her peripatetic life. She passed in 2011 but her memory lives. Wonder what she’d say about this:

“How, precisely, China (or Hong Kong’s titular boss, Ms. Lam) might be compelled to scrap this proposed extradition law is a question perhaps best left to President Trump’s national security team. But if America, Britain and the rest of the world’s great democracies do not stand squarely, clearly and convincingly with the heroes of Hong Kong, there is a great danger that China will read the further abandonment of Hong Kong’s people as yet another signal that the Free World will not defend its own.”

Russia, after all, defended Venezuela until the threat of a Trump invasion evaporated.
