Steeler great Rocky Bleier is featured on Yahoo's Home Page today, talking sense (as you'd expect).
Saul Alinsky is the godfather of the modern Progressive radicalism, and has been the guiding force for most left-wing activism in the last forty years. Rules for Radicals is the Bible of revolution, and is at the heart of most of what the Left does in America these days. Hillary Clinton was a huge fan, and Barack Obama actually taught a course in Alinsky.
In Rules for Radicals the revolutionary is admonished:
6. "A good tactic is one your people enjoy." They'll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They're doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
7. "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag." Don't become old news.
8. "Keep the pressure on. Never let up." Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
Alinsky is the common thread binding the disparate communities of liberals together. The mainstream media (the propaganda arm) and the Democratic Party, the RINO Republicans, academia and the entertainment industry, all share a common heritage in Alinsky. Hillary Clinton was an Alinskyite, as was barack Obama. Whenever liberals do anything their actions can be understood by analyzing the Rules; it is their primary playbook.
The many seeming retreats of the liberal Establishment in recent days has puzzled a good many observers on the Right, and opinions seem to be all over the map about what it all means. Why is Harvey Weinstein falling now, for instance? Why is the Uranium One scandal breaking at the same time that the "Russian Collusion" story seems to be imploding, with evidence of foreign collusion on the part of the Hillary camp coming to the fore? While the mainstream media is lukewarm about covering these things, it is clear they ARE covering them and not simply ignoring them. Why is Antifa waging urban warfare? Why is the NFL being bullied by anti-American players who refuse to stand for their country and their country's anthem?
These things are not separate, but are intertwined and grow out of the radical playbook. more...
Imagine a world in which one can actually describe the human species concretely, as one finds it, without measuring every utterance against the ever-changing barometer of political correctness. Imagine a language that actually communicates positively, naturally, rather than forever masking itself in unnecessary, propagandized euphemism in order to avoid the ultimate progressive sin of "offending” someone’s indoctrinated sensitivity and delicateness. Imagine the freedom of describing Asian people as "yellow” without being accused of a hate crime.more...

Liberals have an enormous chip on their shoulders, and especially minority liberals, who are hunting for racism at every turn. the latest outrage involves Kelloggs Corn Pops.
The back of a Corn Pops box showed frolicking puffs of white corn children with one adult cleaning up their mess. That adult was a bit darker then they, and a Marvel Commie, er, Comics illustrator blew a headgasket, claiming the box eevveel and racist for portraying a minority as a janitor.
I kid you not.
Several points to ponder here.
First, the rest of the pops are naked so the colored guy (we aren't sure if he is black, hispanic, or some other ethnicity) is the only one with any sense.
Second, he is the only one of the pops doing anything productive. Is that a slam at white people? Are they claiming whites are lazy children of privilege? I think they might be saying precisely that.
Third, is it not possible he is a cocoa puff and not a corn pop? Kelloggs makes both cereals.
Kelloggs is a very liberal company, donating large amounts to liberal groups. Why would they put a racist thing on the back of their cereal anyway?
Modern racialists and snowflakes need to thicken their skins to at least Saran-wrap thickness. Not everyone is out to insult and humiliate them.
These people are nuts.
it seems that Mark Zuckerberg's translation software show some staff
member to be a maabool (fool, in Arabic) and possibly majnoon
(possessed by demons, in Arabic). I know a number of other expressions
in Arabic that I picked up in Israel that are being said now about
Facebook. But we cannot post them on the Aviary.

From Investor's Business Daily:
"At a certain point, a mass of facts begin to coalesce into a pattern — a pattern of criminality. One of the great triumphs of the Democrats in the past decade is they've managed to convince much of the public, the media and even some in Congress that the 2016 election was somehow stolen by Donald Trump working in cahoots with the Russians.
"In reality, the Democrats have been knee-deep in Russian muck for decades — especially Hillary "Russian reset" Clinton."

Turns it it was the Clinton camp that funded the infamous "Trump dossier" designed to destroy the candidacy of Donald Trump.
According to the Washington Post (which hates The President):
"The Post's Adam Entous, Devlin Barrett and Rosalind S. Helderman report that powerful Democratic attorney Marc E. Elias retained the firm Fusion GPS for information, and Fusion GPS later hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who was versed in Russia-related issues.
The dossier, which was published by BuzzFeed News in January, has been partially confirmed, though its most salacious allegations have not been."
Well, well, welol.
The article continues:
"Separately, the firm that the Clinton camp and the DNC paid also has alleged ties to the Kremlin. In Senate testimony in July, Hermitage Capital Management chief executive William Browder accused Fusion GPS and its head, Glenn Simpson, of running a smear campaign against Sergei Magnitsky, a Russian whistleblower who in 2009 was tortured and killed in a Russian prison after uncovering a $230 million tax theft. Magnitsky worked for Browder, and he is the namesake of a law containing sanctions that was passed by Congress and is a sore spot between the U.S. government and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Browder said the smear campaign was run by Fusion GPS with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin. You might remember them from the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. that took place in June 2016. Veselnitskaya was the Russian lawyer with alleged Kremlin ties who arranged the meeting.
The Post twists and turns to wiggle out of the obvious conclusion, which is that Hillary is the one who colluded with foreign powers to tamper with the American election.
This blockbuster, coupled with the Hillary Russian uranium scam, would destroy any other politician on Earth save barack Obama. Of course, having reported it the Washington Post and mainstream media will now do their best to ignore their own work. They have done the minimum to maintain their claims of objective journaism, but they will do their best to twist this away from where it would and should lead.
Mr. Trump promised he would "lock her up" when he was campaigning for office. The more we learn about how she handled thiis election the more obvious it is she belongs in prison.
So now race matters in mathematics? If that is so then racism is clearly justified, as mathematics are a key to science, engineering, and technology and if it is a matter of "white privilege" it means blacks and other minorities are inferior at building a civilization.
Stupid beyond words.
Oh, and what of the Asians who surpass whites at math?
Remind me never to ride in an elevator designed by one of this moron's students...
Trump haters plan rally to howl at the moon on anniversary of Trump's election.
Jack Kemp throws in:
I think I know their theme song.
It would even have been funnier if the full moon coincided with the one year anniversary of Trump's election victory.
A NOTE FROM JACK KAMP'
Give a man 2.54 centemeters, he'll want a 1609 meters. It doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?
From one of the comments:
"In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests* and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”--C.S Lewis, The Abolition of Man

The Somali who committed a terrorist attack in Canada came up from Mexico, further illustrating the need to secure our southern border.
According to Judicial Watch:
he Somali terrorist who stabbed a Canadian police officer and ran over four pedestrians a few weeks ago entered the United States through the Mexican border and was released by Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS), allowing him to continue his journey north. The ISIS operative, Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, was ordered deported, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokeswoman told various media outlets recently, but was released on an "order of supervision” and the feds never saw him again.
Sharif entered the U.S. in 2011 through the San Ysidro port of entry in California without documentation and was briefly held at the Otay Mesa Detention Center in San Diego, alocal newspaperreported. A year later he crossed the border into Canada and settled in Edmonton after being granted refugee status. On September 30 he slammed into an Edmonton police officer with his car then got out of the vehicle and repeatedly stabbed the cop with a knife. After fleeing the scene, Sharif stole a truck and deliberately mowed down four pedestrians. Canadian authorities found an ISIS flag in his car and have charged him with multiple counts of attempted murder, criminal flight causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon. Two years ago, Canadian authorities investigated the 30-year-old terrorist for espousing extremist views. It’s disturbing that Sharif’s northbound trek took him through the U.S.-Mexico border.
How many lives must be lost in the quest for "social justice" and a society of politically correct sheep?
Once again, liberals displaying their only positive traits; hypocrisy & lying.
Republicans in Congress want to bring in one million workers to take American farm jobs.
According to Breitbart:
This is the second attempt to pass the H-2C visa-workers bill out of the House Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by Virginia GOP Rep. Bob Goodlatte. His Virginia district includes several turkey and chicken processing plants which employ many low-wage migrants and refugees. The prior vote was canceled October 3, when the farm-industry lobbyists could not win enough votes from reluctant Republican and Democratic legislators.
Many polls show that Americans strongly oppose the cheap-labor immigration policy which displaces Americans workers.
The committee tried to weaken opposition by announcing the surprise vote on Monday, one day before the planned Tuesday-morning session. Goodlatte has also scheduled time for a vote on Wednesday, giving more time for the industry lobbyists to strong-arm legislators.
The huge supply of temporary H-2C visa-workers would drag down Americans’ wages because the outsourcing workers would be paid a government-set wage slightly above the minimum wage. Also, they would be cheaper than Americans because employers would not have to pay their housing or transport costs, or even ensure a guarantee of full-time work, according to the bill. The farm companies may also avoid paying Social Security taxes, as they can now avoid paying Social Security taxes to workers in the fast-growing H-2A farmworker program.
What part of the election of Donald Trump didn't these Republicans understand? The base of the party - and indeed a majority of Americans - do not want to import aliens to take American jobs and fundamentally transform American culture. The GOP is unable or unwilling to learn this. For people like Goodlatte it's all about money and not at all about America.
If we are ever to make any headway in saving the America that was we must get rid of greedy creeps like this.

SHere is a post at American Thinker about the UK wanting to use the term "pregnant woman."
Here is my posted comment to that:
I once wrote a blog piece at Amer. Thinker about a woman who filled out a questionaire - in the testing version of a Medicaid computer program - to pay maternity benefits to a pregnant man. The test program paid and the logic of the program was changed to catch this error. But how does a computer programmer in Great Britain - or California where there more than two official genders - write a program to block maternity payments to a pregnant man?
Let's say a man is married to a woman but wants to game the system and claims to be a woman because he supposedly feels like one. When his wife gives birth, can he now claim maternity benefits as well? It is a cynical twist on the concept of the book "Heather has two Mommies." In Britain or California, he might win such a case in court.
Two cents from Dana Mathewson
My take is that the Brits can say any damn thing they please, but it doesn't necessarily make it so. As Southerners say, when Northerners move to the South to retire and are surprised that they are not thereby considered Southerners, "If a cat had kittens in the oven, we wouldn't call them biscuits."
Another healthcare myth bites the dust.
