THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, WE’D SEE THIRD-WORLD STYLES OF MEDIA TREATMENT. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! CNN’s April Ryan after bodyguard ejects local journalist: ‘When I speak, I don’t have news covering my speech.’

Plus: Wait, I’m one of you! “Kratovil expressed his solidarity with Ryan, an outspoken critic of President Trump and his treatment of the press, but told Fox News that ‘her reputation’ now depends on addressing what had happened and is hoping for an apology.”

Her reputation is as a Democratic Party operative with a chyron, and thugs on hand. She’s never been anything else. And the combination of thuggishness, entitlement, and cluelessness is absolutely typical of the breed. See also Chris “Fredo” Cuomo. I mean, I know CNN’s ratings have tanked, but surely they could hire people who know how to behave in public if they wanted to. But maybe they don’t want to.

APOLLO SHRUGS:

That we had seen a demonstration of man at his best, no one could doubt — this was the cause of the event’s attraction and of the stunned, numbed state in which it left us. And no one could doubt that we had seen an achievement of man in his capacity as a rational being — an achievement of reason, of logic, of mathematics, of total dedication to the absolutism of reality. How many people would connect these two facts, I do not know.

The response of Congress to Apollo 11 included some prominent voices who declared that NASA’s appropriations should be cut because the lunar mission has succeeded.(!) The purpose of the years of scientific work is completed, they said, and “national priorities” demand that we now pour more money down the sewers of the war on poverty.

If you want to know the process that embitters, corrupts, and destroys the managers of government projects, you are seeing it in action. I hope that the NASA administrators will be able to withstand it.

—Ayn Rand after attending the Apollo 11 launch, September, 1969.

“The Apollo program was designed by men, for men. If we do not acknowledge the gender bias of the early space program, it becomes difficult to move past it.”

—Tweet by the New York Times, today.

“The culture that put men on the moon was intense, fun, family-unfriendly, and mostly white and male.”

—Tweet by the Washington Post, yesterday.

The two northeast corridor newspapers are getting a strong negative ratio on their tweets. As James Barrett writes at the Daily Wire:Washington Post Torched For Woke Apollo 11 Tweet.”

The Post’s Apollo 11 piece paints the team who put man on the moon as retrograde compared to the rest of the country. “The space program imagined the future. Yet the community of trim haircuts, shaved chins, white shirts (with contractors’ company badges emblazoned on their pockets) and pressed slacks, led by many veterans of World War II, seemed decades removed from the prevalent culture that was shaggier, angrier and sometimes stoned,” writes Heller.

Yes, because they were busy putting men on the moon, not sitting in the mud in Yasgur’s farm. Evidently, the latter is the more impressive accomplishment according to the Post. (But couldn’t the Post’s Sally Quinn have simply used a magic talisman to will the astronauts there?)

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE PRESIDENT THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL WOULD BE INDICTED FOR COLLUSION. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig charged by federal prosecutors over alleged Ukraine lies. “Gregory Craig, who was White House counsel under President Barack Obama, was indicted Thursday on charges of lying and hiding information related to his work for Ukraine. Craig, a 74-year-old lawyer based in Washington, D.C., was charged by the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, unit. Craig faces up to five years in prison for each of the two counts. The charges stem from the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election led by special counsel Robert Mueller, which came to a formal end last month.”

OH: Chinese Auto Market Not As Hot As Everyone Thought.

Despite amassing a network of factories that could theoretically outproduce the rest of the world, the Asian country’s automotive sector only operates at about half its total capacity. That’s disconcerting. Even Europe, site of some serious industrial headwinds of its own, manages to operate around 70 percent capacity.

While the reasons for China’s woes are ludicrously complicated, one of the most pressing issues is that its economy is slowing much earlier than anticipated. Automakers, both foreign and domestic, almost universally believed that The People’s Republic would surpass the United States as the world’s largest automotive market — and they were right. But investments kept pouring in, factories were built, and the market started to cool prematurely. The situation only grew worse as incentives dried up and people began buying fewer cars; now, 2019 is shaping up to be a very bad year for the nation’s automotive sector.

Voters in free countries get a chance to throw the bastards out during a downturn. I wonder how the Chinese will vent their frustrations.

VIRGINIA CLOWN SHOW UPDATE: CBS’s Gayle King corrects Northam for referring to slaves as ‘indentured servants.’

The comment came in Northam’s first televised interview since he began facing calls to resign over a blackface scandal, in which he urged healing.

“We are now at the 400-year anniversary — just 90 miles from here in 1619. The first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Old Point Comfort, what we call now Fort Monroe, and while—,” Northam said, before King cut him off.

“Also known as slavery,” King said.

“Yes,” Northam responded.

And note this moment in the transcript:

GOV. RALPH NORTHAM: –right now,  Virginia needs someone that can heal. There’s no better person to do that than a doctor. Virginia also needs someone who is strong, who has empathy, who has courage and who has a moral compass. And that’s why I’m not going anywhere. I have learned from this. I have a lot more to learn. But we’re in a unique opportunity now. Again the 400 year anniversary of the history whether it be good or bad in Virginia to really make some impactful changes–

GAYLE KING: Of slavery in this country?

GOV. RALPH NORTHAM: Yes.

As CNN’s Jeff Yang tweets, “‘The 400 year anniversary of the history [of slavery] whether it be good or bad.’ It be bad, Ralph.”

When you’re a Democrat who’s lost CBS, CNN, and the Washington Post, your career barely has a pulse. Speaking of which, Twitchy notes that “to top it all, [during his interview with King, Northam] touted his being in ‘life and death’ situations with children.” And/or life followed by death for newborn children.

An Ivy League professor bashed “the smiling face of Whiteness” in response to the recent controversy involving an interaction between a Native American man and a Catholic teenage supporter of President Donald Trump.

“Whiteness endlessly forgives its own transgressions,” University of Pennsylvania associate professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomaswrote on Sunday about the confrontation between Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and Native American Nathan Phillips. “It rarely, if ever, gives those of us it harms and maims and kills time to process our motions [sic].”

THEY TOLD US THAT UNDER DONALD TRUMP WE’D SEE THE MAINSTREAMING OF ANTI-SEMITISM. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Why Bill Clinton Sat With Louis Farrakhan.

Given his record, the silence about Farrakhan was nothing short of astonishing. The NOI has been appropriately labeled a hate group by both the ADL — which remains the nation’s primary monitor of anti-Semitism — as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center, a left-wing group that has often rebuked conservative groups for drawing attention to Islamist terrorism. But even the SPLC understands that a group that preaches contempt for whites and that singles out Jews for constant abuse should be treated as being beyond the pale.

For decades, Farrakhan has used his NOI pulpit to harp on the “evil” and “satanic” nature of Jews. Using rhetoric straight out of the traditional Nazi playbook, he has relentlessly peddled conspiracy theories about the “synagogue of Satan” oppressing African Americans and controlling the banks, the media, and the “slave trade.”

This ought to have consigned him to the margins of American life, but it hasn’t. His sympathizers may number in the hundreds of thousands. That’s been especially true since the “Million Man March” he organized in 1995, which aided his effort to portray the NOI’s main goal as empowering the black community rather than spreading hate. Representative Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), the deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is a former ardent supporter of Farrakhan, a fact he’s tried to cover up since he sought higher office. Members of the Black Congressional Caucus have also embraced Farrakhan.

They are not the only ones treating Farrakhan as a respected black leader rather than a pariah. Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour — the leaders of the Women’s March in January 2017 and organizers of mass anti-Trump “resistance” rallies — are both ardent supporters of Farrakhan.

As Franklin’s funeral showed, Farrakhan has been just as successful in winning support in the music world. Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan, who sang at the event, also took part in a documentary made by Farrakhan’s son about his father, and they played with him on a companion album set that celebrated the hatemonger’s prowess as an amateur violinist.

The key question is how and why someone with such extreme views can be treated as respected black leader.

Low standards.

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, WE’D SEE CAMPUS VIOLENCE AGAINST NONCONFORMISTS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! VIDEO: UNC prof charged with assault at Confederate statue toppling.

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED, WE’D SEE OPEN RACISM IN POLITICS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Democratic Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott on Asian opponent: ‘Don’t vote for the ching-chong!’

More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.” . . .

The various off-color remarks were heard by multiple people connected with Chang, including Chang’s husband, who spoke with Metro Times. Sean Gray says after overhearing Cook disparage Chang outside a precinct on the east side of Detroit, “I … asked her not to speak about my wife in that manner. At that time she said to the voter that ‘these immigrants from China are coming over and taking our community from us.’ Further, she said it ‘disgusts her seeing black people holding signs for these Asians and not supporting their own people.'”

Gray, who is black, says Scott then went on to call him a “fool” for marrying Chang.

So we’ve got it all: Racism, anti-immigrant sentiment, and bigotry against interracial marriage. Charming.

If this were a Republican, it would be national news. I predict not so much this time.

THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, WE’D SEE OPEN RACISM AT THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT, AND THEY WERE RIGHT! FEC Dem rips ‘white, old, rich, male’ donors, ‘not really representative.’

The top Democrat on the Federal Election Commission is lashing out at the profile of today’s top campaign donors: old, rich, white guys.

In a conference focused on ridding money from the political system, Ellen Weintraub, FEC vice chair, said the nation’s big Democratic and Republican donors are not representative of the overall voting population.

Speaking at an American Promise conference she said that donors plan to spend $750 million in the midterm elections, up from $550 million in 2014. And, she said, the top 1 percent of donors, or some 541, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, have already funded 93 percent of 2018 donations.

“Who are these guys,” she asked in a YouTube video of the late June event just recently posted.

After this racist remark, I think she should have to resign.

Apparently, women and minorities are very fragile.

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED, FANATICS WOULD BE CLAWING THROUGH OLD RECORDS TO PUNISH PEOPLE WITH IMMIGRANT ANCESTORS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Genealogist trolls Tomi Lahren over comments on immigrants.

Of course, the left tries to turn anything into a race-like issue, in this case treating “immigrants” as something akin to a race: How can you be against “immigrants” if you have ancestors who were “immigrants” themselves.

But a century or more ago, we were a big country still being settled, with basically no taxpayer-funded welfare system. Now we’re something very different. Our immigration policy logically should be different too. But when the only card you’ve got is the race card, it’s natural to try to turn everything into a race issue.

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED, JACKBOOTED FEDS WOULD BE INVESTIGATING THE EDITORIAL POLICIES OF NATIONAL NEWSPAPERS. And they were right! “In one instance, The Enquirer bought but did not publish a story about an alleged extramarital relationship years earlier with the presidential candidate, an unusual decision for a scandal sheet. The federal inquiry could pose serious legal implications for the president and his campaign committee. It also presents thorny questions about A.M.I.’s First Amendment protections, and whether its record in supporting Mr. Trump somehow opens the door to scrutiny usually reserved for political organizations.”

Everyone knows that “editorial decisions” aren’t protected under the First Amendment if they might help Trump. And there’s absolutely no such thing as a Deep State.

UPDATE: Tom Maguire has thoughts.

“Thorny questions”. My goodness, the Times was bailed out in 2009 by Carlos Slim, a wealthy Mexican. Does this raise “thorny questions” about their commitment to undocumented immigrants? Of course not, because they say it doesn’t.

Now obviously, Mr. Slim knew the Times was reliably progressive when he bought them, so he didn’t need them to change their views on anything. But the National Enquirer has been making money off of Clinton scandals for decades. Maybe the AMI people simply decided that, in mirror image to the Times Upper West Side readership, their readers wanted material that bashed Hillary and praised Trump. They do tell the Times it was a business decision driven by the popularity of Trump with their readership. Plausible? Sure. Legal? Say what now?

If all AMI did was pick a side in pursuit of an audience, my goodness. That is well worth investigating because we all know that the mainstream media would never trade sympathetic coverage for access that can boost prestige, circulation and ratings. Please.

As to aggressive coverage of sex scandals by the mainstream media, well, that may be ideologically contingent – back in 2007-08, John Edwards and Rielle Hunter were a tabloid-based open secret (gullible Media Matters link) for months before the “responsible” media decided to jump in. Why they might today rush to bash Trump based on mere allegations is hard to understand. No it’s not. Is the National Enquirer being investigated for spiking a story which the Times would never lower itself to touch? Too thorny!

Ouch. Plus: “Is paying for stories a ‘legitimate press function’? That is how the National Enquirer broke the case of the murderer of Bill Cosby’s son. They also paid Rush Limbaugh’s housekeeper for the scoop that got Rush busted for his oxycontin habit – I bet that looked legit to Common Cause. To paraphrase slightly, the dark night of fascism is always descending on the right yet arriving from the left.”

THEY TOLD ME IF A REPUBLICAN WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, THE SEX POLICE WOULD BE INTRUDING INTO EVERYONE’S LIVES. AND THEY WERE RIGHT!

A source says, “Romantic relationships at work are not exactly unusual, but now NBC says it is taking a zero-tolerance approach. Staffers have been told that if they find out about any affairs, romances, inappropriate relationships or behavior in the office, they have to report it to human resources, their superior or the company anti-harassment phone line. Staffers are shocked that they are now expected to snitch on their friends.

“Plus, there’s been a series of ridiculous rules issued on other office conduct. One rule relates to hugging. If you wish to hug a colleague, you have to do a quick hug, then an immediate release, and step away to avoid body contact.

“Also there’s strict rules about socializing, including [not] sharing taxis home and [not] taking vegans to steakhouses.”

As I keep noticing, it’s amazing how the sex-harassment torpedo the Dems aimed at Trump has circled back around on them.

And, further demoralizing Trump’s enemies, is this reality:

The problem at NBC News wasn’t that people didn’t know, it’s that people who knew and should have done something didn’t. They didn’t because Lauer was a star with the power to damage almost anyone who represented a threat to him. No one wanted to take a shot at Lauer because there was a good chance you would end up fired and he’d remain untouched. That’s the same problem people at the Weinstein Company had. Everyone knew about Harvey but no one could afford to take him on.

The problem with procedural rules to deal with sexual harassment and abuse is that the rules are most likely to be applied in an unforgiving fashion to people low on the totem pole while they are applied sparingly if at all to the people most likely to see the harassment as a kind of office perk. You’ll know these rules actually mean something when another A-list host at NBC gets written up for violating the hug policy. My guess: It will never happen.

Yep. It’s all bullshit. As I predicted a while back, the end result of all this #metoo stuff is more HR seminars for powerless males, while the Matt Lauers continue to do what they want, until they’re disposable.

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED, WE’D SEE A RETURN TO SEGREGATION. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Evergreen State’s student newspaper includes no-whites-allowed opinion section: ‘For people of color by people of color.’

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED WE’D SEE A RESURGENCE OF OPEN RACISM. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Student op-ed calls white people ‘an abomination.’

Texas State University’s student newspaper published an op-ed Tuesday telling “white people” that “your DNA is an abomination.”

“When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student columnist Rudy Martinez begins the op-ed, which The University Star has not posted on its website.

The piece documents Martinez’s personal opinion of “whiteness” and “white people,” which he defines to include anyone who is “a descendant of those Europeans who chose to abandon their identity in search of something ‘new’—stolen land.”

When taxpayers get tired of funding higher education, we’ll be told it’s because of “anti-intellectualism.”

THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED, BLATANT SEXISM AND ELIMINATIONIST RHETORIC WOULD BE COMMONPLACE. AND THEY WERE RIGHT!

BECAUSE “THE RESISTANCE” IS A BUNCH OF CHILDISH JERKS: Why Is the ‘Resistance’ Harassing This Man? FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his family endure a season of hatred.

Speaking of crossing lines, unhinged critics on Twitter have attacked Mr. Pai’s Indian heritage and wished death by AIDS and cancer upon him and his family. Mr. Pai’s Chief of Staff, Matthew Berry, has posted some of the appalling messages.

According to Variety, Mr. Pai’s wife “has received threatening messages at her workplace, according to an FCC source.” April Glaser has more in Slate:

It wasn’t the first time that activists apparently showed up near his home. Menacing, handwritten signs also appeared in Pai’s local neighborhood, including one that named his children and the question, “How will they ever look you in the eye again?” In May, in what appeared to be a coordinated campaign by the advocacy group Popular Resistance, people left flyers on Pai’s neighbors’ doors that included his picture, age, and weight. Unfortunately, such attacks aren’t new to Pai, who has endured a steady stream of racist, lewd, and threatening backlash since April, when he introduced his intention to gut the net neutrality rules. . . .

As irresponsible as such language is, it’s also ridiculous. The resisters are casting as a fundamental free speech right what was essentially a gift to tech lobbyists. Companies like Netflix, which by some measures generates more than a third of all North American Internet traffic, and Google, which also generates significant traffic via its YouTube video service, didn’t want to pay market rates to companies like Verizon for moving that traffic. Essentially, Silicon Valley wanted to cut its phone bill and it persuaded President Obama to instruct his supposedly independent telecom regulators to make it happen.

They told me if Trump were elected, racist mobs would harass minority members and government officials who were just trying to stand up to corporate looting. And they were right!

DANIEL PAYNE: Dear Jimmy Kimmel: Stay Out Of The Gun Debate If You Can’t Be Honest.

Mr. Kimmel, you clearly do not like the NRA, for whatever reason. You’re certainly entitled to your political opinion But that does not allow you to make things up to further your own political ends. For instance, you claim that “In June of last year, the NRA fought to make sure people on the no-fly list can buy guns.” This is a lie, plain and simple.

What the NRA was fighting against last summer was not a provision barring people on the no-fly list from buying guns; it was a provision barring innocent Americans who had been placed on the terror watch list from buying guns. And they were right to stand against such a measure! The terror watch list is an overly broad, slapdash document that has regularly encompassed innocent American men and women who are guilty of no terrorist activity whatsoever.

Maybe you’re okay with innocent Americans losing their constitutional rights because they’ve been placed on an accountable secret government list for no reason. Most people aren’t, however; even the American Civil Liberties Union agreed with the NRA on this. You owe it to your audience to tell the truth about the matter.

Mr. Kimmel, you also level an incredible charge at President Trump, claiming that “in February, he…signed a bill that made it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns legally.” This is a gross and intellectually shameless distortion of what that bill actually accomplished.

Read the whole thing.

THEY TOLD ME IF TRUMP WERE ELECTED WE’D SEE SHAMELESS CRUSHING OF DISSENT. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Google is coming after critics in academia and journalism. It’s time to stop them. “In recent years, Google has become greedy about owning not just search capacities, video and maps, but also the shape of public discourse. . . . It is time to call out Google for what it is: a monopolist in search, video, maps and browser, and a thin-skinned tyrant when it comes to ideas.”

THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, DISSENTERS WOULD BE CRUSHED. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Google Critic Ousted From Think Tank Funded by the Tech Giant.

This sort of blatant racial segregation seems like it should command the attention of the Department of Education or the Department of Justice.

THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE PRESIDENT, SHAMELESS OPEN RACISM WOULD BE NORMALIZED ON CAMPUS. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Prof Calls For ‘Wealthy White’ Frats To Be Banned, But Pauses On Banning Black Ones.

THEY DID NOT SEE THAT COMING: “Leftists said if Trump won, that there’d be violent mobs of hate, and intolerant fascists would try to silence those with whom they disagree. And they were right. It just was by a group of people from which they didn’t expect it: themselves. What is happening, in the larger sense? Historians will study this election and our times as unique, but what seems to be unfolding in politics and America overall is stunning not only in its scope, but hypocrisy.”

As the photo atop the article suggests, today’s violence from the left isn’t happening entirely “unexpectedly.”

THEY TOLD ME IF DONALD TRUMP WERE ELECTED, WE’D SEE BLATANT RACIAL DISCRIMINATION. AND THEY WERE RIGHT! White Professor Fired From Black College Gets $4.9 Million.

A Missouri appeals court upheld a $4.85 million racial discrimination award to a white teacher who was fired from Harris-Stowe State University, an historically black college.

A trial jury awarded Elizabeth Wilkins $1.35 million in compensatory damages and $3.5 million in punitive damages on her claim that she was fired in favor of less senior black teachers. She also claimed Dr. Latisha Smith, the temporary co-chair for Harris-Stowe’s Teacher Education Department, repeatedly proclaimed her belief in “black power” in emails.

Harris-Stowe’s defense was crippled by the fact that it deleted emails in Smith’s account, in violation of a court order.

Yeah, who did they think they were, Hillary Clinton?

EVERGREEN STATE AND THE BATTLE FOR MODERNITY: “Currently, news reports indicate that vigilante groups are roaming the campus with bats, seeking out Weinstein supporters (for what reason, you can use your imagination).” They told me if Donald Trump were elected, fascist mobs would seek out Jews and their supporters.

Here’s a sample of the reaction so far to this completely commonplace occurrence.”

“Bias” isn’t actually a crime, you know, and “policing” speech looks a lot like a conspiracy to deprive people of their civil rights, which is both a felony and a source of civil damage actions. If the right had as well-developed a legal infrastructure as the left, there would already be lawsuits and criminal prosecutions along these lines. There probably still will be, eventually.
