The “fine people” hoax

“I’ve been publicly debunking the ‘fine people’ hoax since 2017. The press created the hoax by consistently and intentionally omitting the second half of President Trump’s comments about Charlottesville.”

Figures. You cannot trust the news media these days, especially Mediacrats.

UPDATE:  Pat Condell on Gab: “We are witnessing the suicide of journalism.”

Dirty cop is also a liar

“So, during his testimony, Mueller attempted to give the impression that his team did not investigate ‘collusion,’ only ‘conspiracy.’ Yet the Mueller report states in plain English that they were treated as synonymous.”

“By Mueller’s own testimony, his investigation was not curtailed, stopped, or hindered at any point. In other words, there was no obstruction. This is quite remarkable because as I said, no other body besides Mueller and his investigative team would be able to say definitively that they were obstructed. Clearly, they were not. Yet Mueller and his team refused to say so in their report.”

Happy Independence Day

Nike be damned!

Austin gone squatter

Already ruling over among the most crowded (and expensive-to-live-in) cities in Texas, the far-left Austin city council has now decreed that street camping is legal everywhere in the city—except in parks and around (naturally) city hall.

Squatters panhandling for booze and drug money are legal to set up right outside your door, Ms Businessperson and Mr Homeowner “…and the garbage, feces, urine, used needles and other issues associated with legalized squatting that we have all already seen in Los Angeles and San Francisco.”

The police are not taking it well: “…the Austin Police Association has raised an unofficial revolt online. In a series of posts on Facebook, the APDs union and public relations arm have detailed the utter stupidity of this policy in polite, even political, language.”

Quite stupid, liberals. And sure to lead to violence. Fair warning: better stay out of the rancho’s neighborhood, campers. Some of us are armed and dangerous.

UPDATE: The American left is seriously out of control

Vile Jimmy Carter

In a way he’s very sad, a not-very-good one-term prez Mr. Peanut turned nutcase whose anti-Semitism finally got the best of him. Hamas-backer, anti-Israel book writer (over which his advisory group at the Carter Foundation all resigned) and now calling President Trump illegitimate because the Russians interfered with the election.

Only good thing for Jimmah is that he’s fallen to second-place in the worst president sweepstakes, overwhelmed by Baby Barry, a crook and a traitor, giving billions in cash to terrorist-loving Iran.

UPDATE:  Trump says Carter “was a nice man” but a terrible president. Nice man. Was.

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.”

Huckleberry Finn

Saw an ad the other day for Hillsdale College seeking $100 plus donations by offering DVDs of its course on Mark Twain (another of which I took more than fifty years ago at Maryland) with the pitch that his Huckleberry Finn is banned by many American high schools. And more than a few colleges and universities, I imagine.

Because it has the word nigger in it. And a slave character who seems to be taking his slavery in stride. Though Huck is overtly opposed to slavery and racism.

Eleven years later and it’s still banned, eleven years after, that is, I read old Huckleberry to Mr. Boy (then eight years old) who enjoyed it immensely. Primarily, I suspect, because of Huckleberry’s disdain for school and the pc of his own day. The 20th century’s Holden Caulfield is a poor substitute.

Fortunately Huck is not out of print yet (if it’s not censored—sometimes called condensed—as many editions are) and you could enjoy it for yourself.
