The Chronicle of Lower Education

Lil’ old Ottawa, capital city of the Great White North, shining outhouse on the banks of the mighty Ottawa river, thrusts its name into the headlines of the world again. The two renowned universities in the city, long-time rivals in the race for leading Bastion of the Absurd, Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, are neck and neck.

The University of Ottawa (affectionately known as U of Zero by Carleton inmates) and Carleton (affectionately known as Cartoon U by U of Zero inmates) are vying for the Bonehead Cup, the academic rival of the Stanley Cup, in the asylum of the Canadian Academy.

A year or so ago, U of Zero commandant, El Presidente Alan Rock, an excrescence of a previous Liberal regime, oversaw the banning of yoga classes on the grounds of “cultural appropriation”. (Will all non-Whites be banned from using computers as they were invented by White people? White men too, shock and horror!)

Not to be outdone, Cartoon U has fought back valiantly, by banning weight scales in the gym. There, that will put a stop to fat-shaming! “Fat Canadian snowflakes need no longer fear the terrifying judgement of gym scales…” as the Daily Telegraph (in Oz) so masterfully put it. Brilliant! That will transform Trigglypuff into the Sugar Plum fairy in the blink of an eye.

Indeed, as universities everywhere retreat from education and transition (?) into indoctrination camps, one wonders if the future supply of psychiatrists will be enough handle the snowflakes as they enter the real world. As for the faculty, there’s no hope for them. As The Donald would say, “SAD!”

Bill Nye—the Pseudo-Science Guy

Tucker Carlson on Fox interviewed Bill Nye, the pseudo-science guy, recently, and absolutely skewered him. Nye tries the old “the science is settled” routine whereupon Carlson asks him how much global warming is due to humans, given that the climate has changed hugely for millions of years without human intervention.

Nye tries the appeal-to-authority argument and tries looking down his nose at Carlson. But Carlson will have none of it. Well, if the science is settled, then you must know what you’re talking about. But, obviously, Nye doesn’t.

To establish a hypothesis, or even give it some credibility, competing hypotheses must be ruled out. It’s no good claiming that the man-made global warming appears to be right (it doesn’t even do that), the others must be shown to be wrong.

Nye doesn’t understand the basics of the scientific approach because he is just a political robot. At the end, his mind just snaps and he starts rambling on about “political leaks etc.”

Scott Adams has analyzed this superbly and says that this is the best example of cognitive dissonance that he’s ever seen. Check them both out here.

Liberal Dhimmitude in Canada

The shallow, vacuous magazine cover that passes for a Prime Minister in Canada is supporting a bill introduced into Parliament by Iqra Khalid, a Muslim MP, to “condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination.”

Note that it is not Judo-phobia or Christiano-phobia or Hinduo-phobia, only Islamophobia. A phobia is an irrational fear. Islamophobia means an irrational fear of Islam. But since Islamic societies treat women like cattle, stone them to death, cut their heads off in public, enslave Christian girls and murder gays, it is hardly irrational to fear Islam.

Islamophobia is another fake word invented by the PC class to suppress criticism of Islam and to criminalize people who point out its deleterious effects on free societies.

Khalid was a member of the Muslim Student Association when she was at York University, an institution well known by its reputation for anti-Semitic student activities. A book handed out at York University in 2015 contained an edifying chapter on “Wife Disciplining”.  Some famous alumni of that Association include:

Canada’s most infamous terrorist, Ahmed Sayed Khadr, was radicalized while a part of the Muslim Student Association at the University of Ottawa.[1] Calgary suicide bomber Salma Ashrafi was the President of his Muslim Student Association.[2] Others such as Awso Peshdary, John Maguire, Khadar Khalib, Chiheb Esseghaier, Youssef Sakhir, Samir Halilovic, Zakria Habibi and Ferid Imam all had ties to the Muslim Student Association in Canada. (h/t TSEC)

Further interesting tidbits concerning Khalid reveal:

Ms Khalid is the daughter of Dr. Hafiz Khalid, a long-time associate of the ISNA and formerly a vocal supporter of Jamaat-e-Islami….
…The ISNA ‘Development Fund’ had its charitable status revoked for funding terrorism in 2013. The ultimate recipient of the money was the Jamaat-e-Islami, which is seen as the south Asian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Toronto Star also reported on extensive fraud inside the ISNA whereby money for the poor was squandered.

Why is the Liberal Party of Canada, which is constantly preening itself and bragging endlessly about its support for women’s rights, and the Prime Minister, who describes himself as “a feminist”, considering supporting a bill designed expressly to suppress criticism of the most misogynistic cult active in the world today? Hypocrisy is not a strong enough word.

Islamists are infiltrating the Liberal Party with a view to use it to further their cause, the first of which is to suppress free speech and criticism of Islam.

American Revolution Redux

The media squirmed, the Establishment fumed, and the ever-demented left took to the streets for violence and mayhem.

A call to arms and a call to America to reclaim her heritage as the leading light of liberty in the world; to put her people to work, to reject identity politics and to cleave to all things the citizens of the nation have in common; and to learn loyalty, not only to the nation, but to one another.
….Thus Spake The Donald.
The Donald delivered a remarkable speech at the Inauguration, rejecting the creaking platitudes and oily pablum (aka Obama’s “soaring rhetoric”), thereby placing the country firmly on a path toward reaffirming the nationality of America, toward re-employing American working people, and toward a new America on the world stage as a free nation, not an empire builder.

True to his character of “never give a inch”, he gave them all both barrels. After eight years of Obama’s corrosive policies eating away at the roots of the American nation and culture, President Trump has set the stage for a house cleaning the country hasn’t seen in decades.

Racial divisions, fueled by the spiteful identity politics of the left must be swept away. The education system, poisoned by years of cultural Marxism, must be thoroughly reformed, Western Civilization taught to students, standards invigorated, and the unholy racket of public service unions and the Democrat Party broken.

The immigration laws must be enforced and all criminal aliens deported. The years of lawlessness under the Obama administration must end. “Sanctuary cities”, or any institution that refuses to enforce federal law must be denied federal funding and prosecuted. Attorney General Sessions seems the man for job.

At the root of it all is the idea that America is a nation, is a people, has a culture, and the government serves her citizens whose well-being is the prime responsibility of government. To be a conservative means to recognize these facts. Without them, there is no nation or people or culture to conserve.

While competition and free trade are, in moderation, advantageous to prosperity, they are not ends in themselves. Like oxygen; too little, and the organism suffocates; too much, and the metabolism is poisoned. The art of good government is to balance the opposing forces, always with the objective of preserving the nation and its culture.

The political class of the US has carried them to extremes, resulting in the impoverishment of much of suburban and rural America. This has led to the ruin of millions of families in America’s heartland and the enrichment of an arrogant and parasitic establishment in a few coastal cities and the corridors of Washington’s halls of power. The bailout mania after the 2008 crash has only enriched the New York Money Power. The objectives of the political class have, until now, been to weaken and destroy all nation states and national democracies with political thought control, mass immigration of incompatible cultures through the Big Lie of multiculturalism, and the destruction of national cohesion by pushing identity politics everywhere—especially in schools.

The pursuit of identity politics, where everyone is a hyphenated citizen, black, wimmin, queer, weirdo, (never white), only serves to divide all citizens into tribes and to destroy our common interests. Thus divided groups harboring enmity to others make us easier to control by the forces of national disintegration.

The pursuit of mass immigration, particularly of Islamic immigration, is designed to import an unassimilable culture into the West. This misogynistic, anti-gay, anti-Semitic culture, unreformed from seventh century Arabia, is subversion of the values enshrined in the constitutions of many Western states. Allowing sharia law a foothold in any country is the first step toward surrendering our freedoms to a multicultural world order dominated by the oligarchies of the EU and the New York Money Power. Islam is inimical to all the values that form the bases of the nations of Western Civilization—it is a totalitarianism similar to communism, but without the charm. The destruction of faith in the historic structures of Western Civilization is the object of multiculturalism—the death of free nations. Any government of any free nation must put the safety and integrity of its citizenry prior to all other considerations. This is why the immigration issue is of paramount importance and why the establishment powers wish to suppress discussion of it at every opportunity. Trump just blew all that out of the water.

So, buckle up folks, it’s going to be a great ride. Finally, a leader to take on the rotten establishments of the West and ready to inject some self discipline and self respect into the national and international discourse. No wonder the political class and its toady media are having a bad case of the vapors.

And, as an addendum, the “wimmin’s march”, a parade of ill-mannered, lefty slags, perfectly illustrates why Trump won the women’s vote too.  And guess who was one of the organizers—Linda Sarsour, a pro-Palestine Muslim activist who advocates sharia law in the West and has ties to the terrorist Hamas.  A fine example of womanhood!

Suck it up, buttercup.

America’s Lying Media—Part 2

If you thought that the lying MSM in the US could sink any lower than the gutter, you’re right! They’re now in the sewer.

Not satisfied with being the cheering squads for Hillary Rodent Clinton, traumatized by their election loss to Donald Trump, they are now attempting, with the help of rogue spooks, to delegitimize the incoming administration. Good luck with that.

The scurrilous “dossier” (sounds more impressive than “document”) that purports to reveal dirt on Trump is so obviously fake it would be an embarassment to a satirical site like The Onion. The media have sunk to the Big Lie technique; if you’re going to lie, make it a biggy. The last shreds of their credibility have gone up in smoke.

The Establishment is set on provoking international tensions and war around the world. After the failure of their jihadi pals in Syria, where they have been defeated by the Russia/Iran/Turkey coalition, the American Deep State is hell-bent on creating an atmosphere of hysteria against Russia to justify further aggressive actions against any state that will not bend to their will. After the collapse of communism, NATO (read the US) gave commitments to the Russian Federation not to move military assets up to the Russian border. These commitments have been broken many times over. No wonder the Russians are concerned. The US administration under the man-child Obama has been woefully irresponsible in international affairs.

The real “aggression” in the world is coming from the US. We now know the WMD propaganda about Iraq was a pack of lies. Iraq was destroyed and the ground laid for the rise of Islamic State. Libya was attacked and destroyed, its infrastructure devastated, and its leader murdered, all under the watch of Hillary Rodent Clinton. And for what purpose? It is now a failed state riven by jihadist bandits and consumed by civil war. Egypt was almost destroyed by Obama’s support of the Morsi regime, but here the Egyptian army saved the day. Another smack on the head for the US Deep State.

To say that Russia is a threat to Europe is nonsense—it was a CIA-backed coup in Ukraine that generated chaos on Russia’s border. This is all a cover for more US meddling in the Middle East, particularly as they have been outmaneuvered by the Russians and Iranians. In the US, the Democrat Party is now the war party, busily whipping up hysteria in their intellectually challenged supporters and their lapdog media.

This could all backfire on them very badly. If further enquiries reveal underhanded attempts of bureaucrats in the intelligence services to subvert the incoming administration, it could give Trump a golden opportunity to cut them down to size and remind them that the people rule in America. This is the importance of the Trump presidency.

President Trump should immediately set investigations in motion on January 20th. Political appointees from the Obama years in the CIA and NSA should be fired immediately and heads placed on spikes. Clapper, the DNI, already has a solid record of lying to Congress (thank you Edward Snowden). Brennan and others in the CIA must also go. If investigations of their behaviors result in prosecutions, jail them.

As for the media, Trump’s first press conference should set the tone for the future. Return their favor—show them no respect. He should radically reshape communications with the public, through more youtube presentations, townhalls, social media and invite more citizen participation in questions. Other than that, let the media sink into the swamp they have created; they will not be missed.

After the Glorious Inauguration on the 20th, he should act swiftly, extensively and ruthlessly. Real Americans will love him for it.

That’s Queer!

We’re all used to the lapdog media portraying any gay or lesbian as some lefty, pinko or Democrat (but I repeat myself) weirdo, leading us to believe that the entire LGBTQ community is simply an appendage of the political class and the university and college soviets that control all thought.

Well, surprise, surprise, LGBTQ Nation ran a poll recently for 2016 Person of the Year and guess who won? Not some oily Democrat apparatchik or some clammy-handed pajama boy selling Obamacare, but, none other than MILO (formerly Milo Yiannopoulos), senior Breitbart editor and Internet Super Villain famed for his fanatical support for Donald “Daddy” Trump (who will make America FABULOUS Again!) and the “Dangerous Faggot Tour” of American Re-Education camps formerly known as universities. He pulled in 70% of all the votes.

Even more surprising was the runner-up with 20% of the votes—none other than conservative Republican Vice President-Elect Mike Pence! No-one else came close. Go figure. Next time some pinko tries to tell you that the LGBTQ community is so prog, point them to this.

Obama: Forgotten, but Not Gone

Election Night 2016 seems like a joy ride that never quits. Already, not only is Trump acting like the President, commanding all the world’s attention, he’s making Obama seem like a shadow on the wall.

Not only did Trump trump the MSM, pundits, talking heads, and the whole sorry shower of Democrat sycophants in the dead-tree press, he’s driving Hillary Rodent Clinton’s supporters closer to the psychiatric wing of their local hospitals. Obama whines in front of the press corps (or is it the press corpse?) looking like a hole in space. Michelle says she knows what hopelessness feels like now. Boo hoo. Do the Democrats really have a monopoly on stupidity? What do their incoherent gripes amount to?

First, they think it’s not a “legitimate victory” since Trump didn’t win the “popular vote”. Never mind the fact the US is a constitutional republic and fifty separate elections were held in fifty states. The states’ electors, reflecting the will of the voters of those states, then choose the president in the Electoral College. And even then, this choice has to be approved by the House of Representatives.

Second, suddenly, the evil Russians, recently relegated to “regional power” status by Obama, have the power to influence the minds of American voters, without their knowledge, to vote for Trump. This stunning discovery was made only after the Rodent lost the election. Why then? As that great British wit, Dr Johnson, observed “…when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates the mind wonderfully”. Prior to that, any talk of the election results being challenged was a threat to American democracy. Subsequently, it was the duty of all real Americans. What a difference a day makes!

Third, the Wikileaks donation of thousands of DNC/Clinton/Podesta emails describing in detail the collusion and corruption of the media, Democrats, “journalists”, and all those orcs of the politcal class, unfairly influenced the election. But influencing the voters is what elections are all about. All candidates and power groups attempt to get voters to vote for them! I mean, duh! What part of their brains has been removed?

Fourth, Clinton lost because “she’s a woman”. Spare me. No, she lost because she is a liar, a crook, a hypocrite, an incompetent, and a thoroughly unlikable person. Woman?—I’ll leave that as an exercise for the reader. Aside from the fact that women have been the rulers of nations and empires from time immemorial, how would Clinton’s winning be “historic”? Only in the sense of President Hoover being historic, because he was a mining engineer and spoke Chinese. Oh, sorry, those are real talents, something Clinton lacks. Her political trajectory matches that of Elena Ceausescu, a political lamprey along for the ride with the real leader and possessing a hunger for power bordering on the maniacal.

Fifth, they have no common decency. Clinton didn’t even have the decency to stand in front of her supporters, concede the election and thank them. She was too busy getting drunk and throwing tantrums while assaulting Podesta, as some have said. Either way, her “temperament” is obviously unsuited for the role of President of the US if she can’t behave decently when the situation requires. Her supporters have been rioting on the streets, assaulting people and causing property damage in various cities across the nation—vile behavior by immature people. If the Democrats want to be taken even remotely seriously, they had better shape up pretty quick and start behaving like adults instead of whiny, sniveling idiots on university campuses.

So, listen up whiners, the nuclear-powered icebreaker, the Donald J Trump, is moving through the Washington ice-pack, so learn to sink or swim with the new regime.

OK, that’s enough for now, so do what I did—buy yourselves a bottle of excellent Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky; I recommend Rebel Yell (of course) and Woodford Reserve, Distiller’s Selection.  Book off January 20th for an all-TV day.

Oh, one more thing: do yourself a favor and read Conrad Black’s latest. He’s on a roll right now, rather like the Hulk on steroids with a flamethrower.

FakeNewsweek and the Washington Com-Post

After the defeat of Hillary Rodent Clinton in the election, the latest act of desperation from her media presstitutes is the invention of fake news. Or rather, blaming others for what the MSM have been doing for the last n years. Hillary Rodent Clinton has to lie in the same way ordinary people have to breathe in order to live.

As every disagreement with the progressive agenda is “hate speech”, every news item exposing the crooked activities of the Rodent-in-Chief is “fake news”.

The Wikileaks emails, and the Project Veritas videos, showed the extent of corruption in the Democrat Party and the news media, their collusion and dishonesty, and their contempt from the ordinary folk of America. To try to throw the public off the scent, the invention of a great Russian/Julian Assange conspiracy is invented to stop you noticing that the Democrats actively conspired to generate violence at Trump rallies, help illegals to vote, and many other things. The presstitutes are trying to confuse two distinct issues here. The first issue, vote fraud, consists of dead people voting Democrat and voters whose vote for Trump mysteriously shows up as a Clinton vote. This is interference with the election. The second issue, wholly unrelated, is the hacking of the DNC and Clinton’s email server. While Secretary of State, her email server was set up, against all security regulations, solely to protect her slush fund pay-to-play schemes for the Clinton Foundation. It was hacked. Too bad honey, your fault.

With regard to the second issue, whoever obtained the Clinton emails exposed the nefarious dealings of the inner workings of the Clinton campaign and their hacks and lackeys in the media. People found out how the Clintons work (as if they didn’t know already). That is a service to the American public. Thank you, Julian Assange. How voters choose to vote after that is their business entirely.

The presstitutes have been attempting to imply that the Russians/Julian Assange did this to ‘tip the election’ to Trump. This is bunk. The issue is ‘What did the emails reveal?’ and ‘Is that important?’

The presstitutes are focusing all their efforts at their doctored news on ‘who did it?’ rather than ‘what did the emails tell us?’

Might I add that I am shocked!, shocked and appalled!!, that a foreign power would try to gain information from another by underhand means!

It doesn’t matter if the Russians, Julian Assange, or the Martians, or anyone else, sent a letter or email to every voter saying ‘Please vote for candidate X’. The voters can vote for any candidate they please for any reason they deem fit. In one of the past elections (Bush/Kerry 2004) the Grauniad, the far-left Brit rag, implored voters, by mail and people contact, in one of the swing counties in the States to vote for Kerry. No one in the media got upset about that.

It’s not as if the Russian ambassador were handing out cookies to voters after the Trump victory as Ambassador Nuland was in Ukraine after the government there was overthrown by a CIA-financed coup.

The Washington Com-Post, no longer worthy of lining a kitty litter box, in one of the most disgraceful and scurrilous articles ever published, recently accused more than 200 websites, of many political persuasions, of disseminating Russian propaganda. As any opinion opposing the progressive mind-set is “hate speech’, so any news from any other source in the world, is “fake news”, unless approved by the oligarchy in DC. Many other countries have newspapers, and web-based news services, which are far better and more informative than the tripe dished out by the TV networks and the dead-tree press in the US. And with less of the sanctimonious humbug from ignorant journalists.

The “source” of their fake news was a dubious organization, ProporNot, that provided no evidence of anything. Their identities were protected by the Post. The Post is, of course, no stranger to fake news. In fact, they are masters at it. Back in 1981, their famed reporter, Janet Cooke, had her Pulitzer Prize withdrawn because her articles about heroin addicts were entirely fake.

Likewise, the New York Slimes set the standard back in the 1930s with their correspondent, Walter Duranty, who wrote glowing reports of the joyous life of Soviet citizens during the Stalin-induced famines in which millions died. Other writers, notably the British author Malcom Muggeridge, had the courage and honesty to expose these lies. But Duranty has never had his Pulitzer Prize revoked.

In view of this, I propose a new award for fake newspapers and their fake news: the Walter Duranty Award for Mendacity in Journalism. The NYT and the Washington Post are lead contenders for the first award.

The Internet, and the new journalism of free citizens, means that we are no longer at the mercy of these liberal rags for information. Their days are numbered and the end will come sooner than they think. This election has shown that their worthless bunkum is no longer believed.

Castro: the Media’s Favorite Tyrant

‘Fidel Castro is dead!’ tweeted President-Elect The Donald.  I like the exclamation point.  The rest of the media and, of course, some of the wormtongues of the political class were quick to show that their powers of grovelling have not suffered even in the New Era of Trump.  Boy Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Canuckistan averred:

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.”

Just like his leftist father before him, the new Boy Leader of the DPRC gushes with praise for dictators, especially those that can poke a stick into the eye of the United States.  Canada’s Liberals often find execrable tyrants ‘remarkable leaders.’

Obsequiousness comes naturally to them, and the new, slimy leader leader of Canada is no exception.  As with Hussein in the United States, he enjoys adulation from a lapdog media, which, in the case of the CBC, is financed by fleecing the taxpayer.

In the EU, Jean-Claude Juncker, senior commissar and drunk, has said,

“With the death of Fidel Castro, the world has lost a man who was a hero for many….  Fidel Castro remains one of the revolutionary figures of the 20th century. His legacy will be judged by history.”

Juncker himself aspires to a similar legacy, and, as a leader of the semi-Soviet EU sees himself as a ‘revolutionary figure’ of the 20th century.  Juncker’s legacy will likewise be judged—as an aspiring tyrant and oligarch who had no sympathy with the average man or woman.  The EU has no respect for democracy, and neither did the thug and tyrant Castro.

Castro’s communist tyranny has left Cuba in a state of poverty and dictatorship after half a century of repression.  No mention of the political prosoners who suffered under him, or the tens of thousands ‘eliminated’ in the greater cause of communism.  No mention, either, of his bastard political offspring, Che Guevara, who rose to fame as Castro’s chief executioner.

The reactions of real people were shown by President-Elect The Donald and by Cubans on the streets of Miami. And from the Miami Cubans, I like this one the best….
