For those on the Right are not all that happy with losing the House of Representatives, I would suggest you read this essay from the leftist black newspaper The St. Louis American. The left is, if anything, more unhappy with the Democrats than we are with the Republicans.
Here is a taste:
"Dems seem to be clueless about how to select and support candidates (particularly those of color), how to value and engage their constituents, or how to strategically counter the red steamroller coming at us.
Thanks to tone-deaf Democratic Party leaders, key seats are being lost all over the country. Missouri is now flaming red with a supermajority Republican state assembly and governor. Only the state auditor prevails as the sole statewide Democratic elected official."
There is a civil war brewing in Donkeyland, and if we play this right we can exploit it to great advantage.
It may not seem like it, but we are gaining ground.
In an unbelievable twist, the Democrats in Maryland are suing the Trump Administration to block his appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting Attorney General.
From the article:
"Maryland contends that President Donald Trump acted unlawfully in selecting Whitaker, whose prior role as chief of staff is not a Senate-confirmed position, over Rosenstein, who is Senate-confirmed as the deputy attorney general. The state said it will seek a preliminary injunction asking the court to recognize that Rosenstein, not Whitaker, is the appropriate defendant in an ongoing lawsuit challenging the Justice Department's position opposing certain parts of former President Barack Obama's health care law."
The Tenure of Office Act was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in 1926 in Myers v. United States. (I wrote about that at American Thinker here. It had been repealed decades before. The Tenure of Office Act tried to stop President Andrew Johnson from hiring or firing his cabinet, forcing him to accept the people appointed by Abraham Lincoln.
Johnson was not elected but assumed the office of President when Lincoln was assassinated. Donald Trump was duly elected by the American People. There is absolutely no merit to this lawsuit, but no doubt this will go before an Obama appointee and will have to be appealed.
Question; if the Democrats did so well in this last election, and if the political winds are blowing in their favor, why fight this? Isn't this an unnecessary battle at this point? The fact is, the Democrats STILL must keep the pressure on the Trump Administration, to keep Trump impotent and to hopefully get enough dirt to impeach him in the next election. They cannot afford a strong Attorney General who will take action against their free-for-all behavior.
This shows clearly Trump did the right thing here
A philosophy professor has filed suit against Shawnee State University for firing him for refusing to call a man in a dress by "her" chosen pronoun.
Professor Nicholas Meriwether is suing the university for discriminating against his deeply held Christian beliefs. According to the article:
"The Alliance Defending Freedom, a prominent conservative judicial activist group that was designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is assisting with the lawsuit.
The lawsuit says a student approached Meriwether after class when Meriwether responded to the student by saying, "Yes, sir” on Jan. 9,.
"In January 2018, a male student demanded that Dr. Meriwether address him as a woman because he identified as such and threatened to have Dr. Meriwether fired if he declined. To accede to these demands would have required Dr. Meriwether to communicate views regarding gender identity that he does not hold, that he does not wish to communicate, and that would contradict (and force him to violate) his sincerely held Christian beliefs,” the lawsuit says"
First, the Southern Poverty Law Center is itself a hate group which designates anybody with which it disagrees as a "hate group". Bear in mind, thety declared the Family Research Council a hate group, as well as the ministry of D.James kennedy, clearly a mainstream ministry. Oh, and they they declared the Singing Nuns a hate group. Not sure why their attitude toward the professor's lawyers matter.
The good doctor tried to work out a compromise, by offering to call the student by his last name rather than use a pronoun. The student would not accept this, and in fact screamed in the Professor's face.
This is very much an assault on Christianity. Also from the article:
"The lawsuit says when the professor was being spoken to about the complaint, he was told that "Christian doctrines regarding hell are harmful,” that religion "oppresses” students and that it was the mission of higher education to "liberate” them"
So-called "transgenderism" has no basis in objective science, but rather is an artificial creation of the modern Left to destroy the family and bludgeon Christianity. This professor is clearly a victim of the bullying tactics employed by modern Progressives to accomplish what they have long fantasized; destroy Christianity.
Also, methinks he (the student) doth protest too much. Why so angry? If he really IS transgendered meaning he is a woman in a man's body then he should take this in stride. That he is so jealous of "her" sexual misidentity speaks volumes. He obviously does not look like a woman, which says he doesn't take this THAT seriously or he would take more pains to look feminine (and thus avoid the whole problem). This student wants to have his cake and eat it too. In fact, I would argue his "self-identification" is purely a rebellious political statement and little more. He has no right to expect others to respect his personal quirks as representative of reality.
We must fight this.
Go on His Show, Didn't Want to
be Tied to ConservativesThen
Lost to a Marxist
Marxist Code Pink pro-Taliban activist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner today against female fighter pilot Republican Martha McSally in the Arizona senate race. Martha McSally was a #NeverTrumper before the 2016 election. She refused to attend the Republican convention. But Paul Ryan really liked her. (Video/Tweet) Conservative radio host and author Mark Levin told his audience on Monday that McSally refused to go on his show. (Tweet) McSally tried to play it safe and moderate. She ended up with more 200,000 votes less than the Republican candidate for governor. He embraced Trump. Governor's race.
Our old friend Daren Jonescu is a Professor of Philosophy and a fan of Heinrich Nietzche. I've not liked Nietzche myself, largely because of his biting anti-Christian sentiments and his views on "The Will". Be it noted Nietzche went mad at the end, the result of gazing into an abyss without the safety harness of the Holy Spirit to protect him. But Nietzche was more subtle than he is often portrayed, and while the Nazis embraced elements of Nietzchism as it was beneficial to them, the fact is they failed to understand the German thinker in a fundamental way. Nietzche was far more clever than the brutish National Socialists could ever understand.
He clearly wouldn't have approved of them. Doubt that? Daren posts an entire essay of Nietzche at his website, and I urge everyone to read it in it's entirety. See it here.
The thing about it is it is written about Germany, but it sounds very much like the modern United States. Frighteningly so. While I strongly urge the reader to read the entire essay (it is short) I would like everyone to ponder some of these passages.

Just read this at Zerohedge:
"Major Israeli operations occurred in the Gaza Strip in the night hours of Sunday during which Palestinian medical sources say at least 6Â people have been killed in what was a daring Israeli elite forces raid that breached about 3 kilometers into Palestinian territory.
Palestinian officials confirmed an Israeli special forces raid on a group of Hamas commanders in theÂ city of Khan Younis which the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) say killed suspected Hamas terrorists, including a senior commander in its military wing."

Speaking as someone whose late father lived 300 yards from the center of the 2000 Presidential Election recount, the West Palm Beach Century Village Clubhouse, I totally agree with the author. Perhaps a recount could be done with OTHER PEOPLE supervising the counting but the many former residents of New York City and their elected officials in these two G-d forsaken countires of Florida have essentially shown they don't deserve to be involved in an American election. They are much more fitting to be involved in a Soviet election.
Time to Disenfranchise Broward and Palm Beach Counties
Backpacks for Life, the charity I'm involved with that helps homeless veterans in the New Jersey-New York area and beyond, held a fundraising and tailgate party in the parking lot of MetLife Stadium this Veterans Day Sunday, as the New York Jets were about to face the Buffalo Bills. There were over one hundred other tailgate parties, both individual and those created by organizations. Without knowing the exact location, I got off the bus from New York City and started my search on a nice and sunny, mid-fall day.
Now tailgate parties at a major NFL stadium cam be a literal pain in the neck. I know this because someone playing catch in the parking lot hit the back of my spine just above my shoulders with a soft throw of a football. Earlier, when I first arrived at the stadium, I saw an official looking Jets Fan Bus - a meetup point for Backpacks For Life, and thought "this will be easy to find." Not quite. After walking down a long line of tailgate parties extending from the bus, being offered roast beef and having my requests to have someone use their cell phone to call the contact number for BFL denied, I trudged on through the sea of tailgate parties that resembled ancient Roman army campfires. About twenty minutes or so later I spotted a mini-tent flying a Jets flag with a U.S. Marine Corps Anchor and Globe flag directly below it. I figured the people there would help me. I was right.
When I explained to two women standing next to a small group of the Marines in camouflage jackets about my plight, wanting to find a veterans' charity listed on the business card I showed them, one of the women got out a smartphone and called - but got no connection. They even used the www.backpacksforlife.org website to send an email to co-founder Brett D'Alessandro, all to no avail. I thanked them for their efforts and they offered me a cold beer - which I took - before I continued on my search.
Trudging on further, past a row of buses to now widen the circle of my search, I eventually found the mini-tent of Backpacks For Life and met up with Brett and once again met his parents to catcht up with recent events with everyone. Brett solved the mystery of why I couldn't make a cell phone connection with him earlier. He had been on an appearance at Fox News which resulted in BFL getting a flood of phone calls. This, I suspected, filled up his voice mail minutes 'til there were no more. You can see why the Fox News spot got such a response by watching that video here. Alexa Modero, Backpacks for Life's co-founder, was out of town attending a wedding this day.
Brett and his family were also selling t-shirts and caps and there were also representatives of Hotseat were there selling stadium warming seat pads. Looking around, I heard loud rock music blaring from speakers and saw the accompanying party provided by participating businesses and also the Jets fan "magical" bus. And there was a barbecue with hamburgers, hot dogs and even an entire roasting pig - head and all - turning on a mechanical spit. Beer was supplied by Hoboken Brewing, a young craft beer company located just across the Hudson River from New York City. Talking to the brewery's co-owner, Andrew Zebrowski, I (and others) were offered a choice of two types their brews. I drank their coconut-infused blonde ale as we talked about his family and mine. I'll just say here that he also named his young son Jack.
Shortly after the game started, as Brett and his family literally folded their tent and packed up to leave the MetLife Stadium parking lot, I said my goodbyes to everyone and started walking the distance across the outside width of the stadium parking lot back to the bus stop. That's when I got hit with football in the back of the neck. It was a mild incident. No apologies were asked for and none were given.
But the Jets had a much bigger pain in the neck that day, losing to the Buffalo Bills 41-10. You could say that New York won that day, the Buffalo Bills being the only team with a stadium in New York State. I guess those Jets fans that prayed and wished for New York to win should have worded their their requests more precisely. But these gatherings in the parking lot of MetLife Stadium were not full of English teachers, not by a long shot. I don't think English teachers would have offered a complete stranger such as myself free roast meat and beer.
A number of 2018 elections are still in doubt. However, decisions on an number of statewide climate and environmental initiatives – and what’s happening in the international climate arena – suggest that the Paris climate treaty and obsession over global warming and "green” energy are plummeting. My article this week will help people better understand these dynamics … and make more informed decisions on climate and energy moving forward. Ultimately, it asks:
Why should the United States even consider getting back into Paris, adopting any carbon tax, carbon capture or carbon trading programs, turning millions more acres into wind, solar and ethanol operations, or in any other way bowing to the IPCC and environmentalist pressure groups on these issues?more...
Peter Navarro Warns Wall Street Globalists: â€œStand Downâ€ Or Else!
The money quotes:
If you understand the basic elements behind the new dimension in American economics, you already understand how three decades of DC legislative and regulatory policy was structured to benefit Wall Street and not Main Street. The intentional shift in fiscal policy is what created the distance between two entirely divergent economic engines.
Quote from Peter Navarro: more...
The following is a quote from Mark Penn, former senior adviser to the Clintons, and Andrew Stein, former president of the New York City Council (writing in the Wall Street Journal tomorrow):
"Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle, back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. The generation of Democrats who have been waiting to take over the party from the Clintons will be fuming that she is back and stealing their show. But they revealed themselves to be bungling amateurs in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination fight, with their laughable Spartacus moments. She will trounce them. Just as Mr. Trump cleared the field, Mrs. Clinton will take down rising Democratic stars like bowling pins. Mike Bloomberg will support her rather than run, and Joe Biden will never be able to take her on."
She's running. What fun that will be!

"I'm a daughter of a Holocaust survivor," a 61-year-old Jewish woman was quoted as saying. "I lost all my aunts and uncles in the Holocaust, and I'm going to go down fighting. I'm not walking into a gas chamber. I'm not going to stand there like a sitting duck and get shot at. I refuse."
Yonatan Stern, an IDF veteran running tactical training courses at Cherev Gideon (Gideon's Sword), suggested that the demand is coming from the more politically and religiously conservative Jews.
Meanwhile at a lefty protest in Philly, Rebecca Hornstein, a member of the If Now Now anti-Israel hate group, who backed anti-Semites like Keith Ellison and Linda Sarsour, claimed that nobody wanted guns.
But quite a few real Jews did.
The debate over firearms in synagogues has reached into Jewish communities from New York City to Philadelphia, and from Chicago to Colorado Springs, where Mel Bernstein of Dragon Arms offered local Rabbis in the area free handguns or AR-15s, along with training and ammunition.
"You have to have the tool to fight back, and this is the tool" the Jewish gun store owner said.
The local ADL branch was unhappy with Bernstein's offer, claiming that armed clergy sent the wrong message. Five local rabbis however thought that it sent the right message and took him up on it.

Why Republicans lost the pre-existing conditions war
From the article:
"For this week's elections, Democrats spent considerable resources attacking Republicans for trying to tamper with Affordable Care Act rules that require insurers to cover preexisting conditions. Now that voters have handed Democrats control of the House, ObamaCare supporters claim the election confirms what nearly every public opinion poll finds: The ACA's preexisting-conditions provisions are popular with voters.
Don't believe it. Truth is, the supposed popularity of the ACA's preexisting-conditions provisions is and always has been a myth.
Polls and attack ads that claim the provisions are popular are based on a fantasy version of these rules that assumes they have no costs. Responsible polls that incorporate the rules known side effects consistently find voters oppose them."

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is already up and working in her hospital room, a day after breaking three ribs in a fall, her nephew said late on Thursday at the Hollywood premiere of a film about her life. Ginsburg, a ground-breaking liberal jurist who at 85 is the oldest U.S. Supreme Court justice, was hospitalized on Thursday after falling at her office at the court, a court spokeswoman said. "The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes," her nephew Daniel Stiepleman said...

Woman in Minnesota Receives BrowardCounty Ballot in the Mail

Alex Occasional-Cortex (suddenly I'm not the only one calling her that -- others must be reading The Aviary!) can't find cheap lodging in DC until she starts drawing a paycheck from us citizens. Oy, the agony!
From the Daily Caller:
Democratic socialist and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York announced Thursday that issues like finding an apartment in Washington, D.C., before receiving her congressional salary are â€œvery real.
"I have three months without a salary before I'm a member of Congress, so how do I get an apartment?â€ Ocasio-Cortez said to The New York Times. â€œThose little things are very real.â"
However, she noted that she and her partner have been saving money since before leaving her job as a bartender in New York.
"We're kind of just dealing with the logistics of it day by day" said Ocasio-Cortez. "I've really been just kind of squirreling away and then hoping that gets me to January."
While Ocasio-Cortez told The NYT that she "can't really take a salary" filings by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) show that she has at least taken one "payroll check" during her time as a candidate.
Following publication of her interview with The NYT, the Democratic socialist tweeted about the issue.
"There are many little ways in which our electoral system isn't even designed (nor prepared) for working-class people to lead" Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "This is one of them (don't worry btw " we're working it out!)"

Republicans foiled Democrats’ dreams of a Senator O’Rourke, a Governor Gillum and a Governor Abrams, and, apparently, white women are to blame for it.
One Twitter warrior deemed white women "footsoldiers of the patriarchy” for voting Republican, claiming that their decision is based on a desire to submit to their husbands. Jemele Hill, staff writer for The Atlantic, argued that white women are not "the face of feminism,” because they voted for Ted Cruz and, in 2016, for Donald Trump. A viral tweet listed Republicans for which white women voted in the midterms and concluded, "white women gonna white.”
Don’t worry, though. The Women’s March is here to help us out: "There’s a lot of work to do, white women. A lot of learning. A lot of growing. We want to do it with you.”
Phew! For a second there I thought we were going to have to continue navigating these scary political waters on our own. I’m so relieved to know that, instead of thinking for ourselves, we’ll have obscure liberal Twitter activists and Linda Sarsour guiding us. I’m hoping my tyrannical husband won’t be too upset with me for going against his commands. Last week he gave me an extra fifty cents in my allowance and told me to "buy something pretty,” so maybe he’ll be just as gracious when I tell him I’ve started forming my own opinions.This is my kind of woman -- my wife's too.
The irony is, of course, rich. Leftist feminists, long-asserting the strength and independence of women, now argue that some women are so weak that they need to depend on liberals to tell them how to vote. They cannot fathom that we Republican "white women” may actually have different values than they do. It must be because we are "foot soldiers of the patriarchy.” (That’s newspeak for "self-hating idiots.”)It's a great article, dear readers. Please read the whole thing.
This from Tim:
Hey, if you can change your sex based on your self-identification, why not your age?
We all knew this type of thing was coming. Surprised it took as long as it did.
I wonder how long before 18 year old boys get their driver's licences changed to say they are forty year old women to get better insurance rates? Or people looking for a senior discount? How about changing your birth date to receive social security? Medicare? There is every reason to monkey around with your age, and this is going to make a whole new set of problems. It was inevitable after America rejected the idea of objective sexes. Now everything is fluid.
How many criminals are going to claim they are under the age of majority when they are brought to trial?
