Good luck!

Oh, and on another note, here's a goodie for everyone: Liberal newspaper to Fauxcahontas: Take a DNA test, darling.

Quote:
The same technology that can match a perpetrator to a crime with virtually 100 percent certainty could settle the question of her heritage for all time.

There are now so many commercial DNA heritage-tracking labs in business that they advertise on television. The going rate for one of the most popular tests is $99. All the senator needs to do is spit into a tube, wait a few weeks and get her answer. No matter if the test came up negative or positive, it would constitute a plus for Warren and her political hopes.
She loses either way, so...please, take the test so everyone can see how you've gamed the 'racial quota system' for your own advantage, Fauxcahontas. It will be a "plus for....her political hopes" lol.

That's Terran, basically.

Also, I may never have laughed harder than when Trump's White House put out a video on violent video games (as taxes on them are considered in various places around the nation) and it included No Russian.

I never laughed harder than when Trump beat Hillary, followed closely by when Gorsuch was appointed to the Supreme Court. The reactions of liberals everywhere were just priceless. Winning!

Edit: More laughter! lololol. The laughs keep on coming.

In a move sure to make some people's head explode Trump pardoned the Navy Submariner convicted of taking selfies aboard a submarine which happened to show a piece of classified equipment in the background.

Of course we don't need to rehash how much this topic hurt Hillary's campaign especially considering the obvious contrast it provided for her opponents after she was found only to be careless with top secret+ information and people in lesser positions are going to prison for lesser offenses.

Fortunately, with the pardon now they can also petition to also upgrade his discharge to honorable though I feel a general discharge might be more appropriate. Intent notwithstanding judgment was still lacking, just like Hillary.

But just as toxic is the use of conservatism to reflexively oppose Trump’s every move. Enter Post “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin, who seemingly has found few previous positions she is willing to cast aside in service of her anti-Trump crusade. While she once supported declaring Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital, she has since reversed herself when Trump proposed just that. During Barack Obama’s presidency, Rubin opposed U.S. entry into the Paris climate accord; suddenly, when Trump exited the agreement, Rubin declared it sacrosanct.
Part of what has been so enjoyable about Trump's presidency has been the meltdown not only of the left, but of their enablers and allies in the globalist/neocon/uniparty/establishment wing of the Republican Party.

LOLOLOL. Suddenly 'conservative' positions are anathema to them when Trump actually makes them happen, making one wonder how truly 'conservative' they ever were to begin with. Of the Heritage Agenda, 64% has been accomplished to date, MORE THAN REAGAN at the same time of his admin. 'We can't have that!' says the GOPe.

When you're making truck loads of cash from the Saudi's that conservatism goes out the window. Just look at the Bushes. Neocons aren't conservative, they're progressive globalists.

Did anyone post this gem yet? It was a tossup which thread to put it in.

Apparently, a school teacher running for office in Virginia decided to virtue signal by "destroying" an AR-15 rifle by sawing off the front end. Instead, she wound up creating an instructional video for making an illegal firearm. As well as creating an illegal firearm.

Congressional candidate broke law when she carved up AR-15, attorney says

Quote:
An expert in gun law says congressional candidate Karen Mallard’s destruction of her AR-15 rifle, which she recorded and posted on Facebook, was against the law.

“At a minimum she broke at least two federal laws, both of which are felonies, and at least one felony at the state level,” said Virginia Beach attorney Robert Herron III, an expert in firearms law.

But Herron doubts she’ll get prosecuted because she’s running for Congress.

“If you took the same video, and removed the political speech, and removed her candidacy from the video, and it was someone who just said hey, I’m cutting down my rifle, and the ATF got wind of it, it’s a solid bet that the ATF is gonna be knocking on their door.”
Well, apparently the ATF is already knocking at her door. But I doubt that will happen becuase 1) Congressional candidate and, more importantly, 2) liberal gun-tard. And of course they are blaming conservatives for making a big to-do about nothing (something liberals NEVER do). Because it's ok to break the law if you didn't know about it. Right? Um...

The takeaway: Actually bother to learn about guns and gun laws before preaching to people about guns and gun laws.

edit: fixed ATF link

Fauxcahontas refuses DNA test.

Quote:
“All the senator needs to do is spit into a tube, wait a few weeks and get her answer,” the paper said.

Asked whether she’d take an ancestry test, Warren said she wants to hold onto the folklore of her parents’ love story.
Evidence-based progressivism.



lulululz...Rachel Dolezal before she existed.

That image goes perfect after a quote from that article:

Quote:
“I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said of her ancestry on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Really? Then why bring it up? We see this way too often these days. People are claiming just about anything as fact and are then feel they are exempt from backing it up. Trump tends to do this a bit, though not nearly as much as the MSM would have us believe. I think he's doing a good job, but he does need to tone down the ego.

It's also interesting how the left looks at this. If a conservative asks a liberal to back something up, they are a right wing troll, while if a conservative claims something with no proof, they lie and have something to hide.

Interesting how that works.

To me, it's a joke. Of course these conservative speakers are being provocative. The author of this post points this out as if it's some genius revelation when we all know that this is the point. But it's a matter of exposure. When you go into an arena of ideas, and your opponent can only come with overpowering screaming and violence, then you expose them for the intellectual frauds that they are. That's the point. Get them to engage your ideas (they usually can't) or get them to resort to their own overemotional tantrums. The fact that they bothered writing this piece as they did shows how behind the curve they are in this space.

I just thought it touched on a few of the themes people have been discussing in this thread. I wasn't attempting to make any direct point. I agree, it does not offer anything mind blowing. Rather, it kind of summarized two dynamics that have been discussed here, liberals on campuses going ape shit, which feeds into some kind of churn on the right, and some on the right enjoying triggering the libs, which has been discussed and evidenced here.

Gallup poll on campus speech climate:

students who identify as Democrats (63%) or independents (62%) are somewhat more likely than Republican students (53%) to think the climate at their college deters speech.
You, sir, are a liar and your source is filled with shitty lies as well.

This article doesn't summarize two dynamics, it offers damnation to conservative speakers painting any speaker who riles up left students as "inflammatory" regardless of who they might be. Could be Dave Rubin, Ann Coulter, Milo, Christina Hoff Summers...

Yep, that's the only reason. It's not actually to hear people impart wisdom or anything. Just to get a rise out of the left.

And then it forgives those poor students and gives them air cover and comfort so people will continue to feel emboldened and confident in their efforts to squelch speech they don't agree with.

These people consumed 15% of the time she had allocated for her speech, and that's AFTER all the bullshit scheduling and organizing the event and then the STRUGGLE to get to the venue and into the room to begin with.

These are supposed to be LAW STUDENTS.

But it's OK of course. They should be doing it because the EVIL RIGHT WING AGENDA TROLLS are just sending out those speakers to get the rise out of the good and true Americans on the left to make them look bad or something.

This is not two dynamics, it is a self-congratulatory article where the author had better be careful of breaking their arm due to excessive back patting. It ignores the reality of the situation from the last 5 years where speech has been squelched and a whole new method of suppression, called deplatforming, has arisen.

The fact the author actually endorses the Heckler's Veto yet has the gall to claim it as an American virtue is dumbfounding to me.

But let's stop pretending that any meaningful incident of political speech is at stake with these inflammatory conservative speakers.
Because all conservative speakers are inflammatory unless they are cleared by some secret leftist committee and speak about sanitized subjects with progressive approved talking points.

There are times I am grateful my number of years left in the world are severely numbered because this is the sort of thing which breaks my heart.

Liberal double standards vallor. You have to keep in mind that anything they accuse conservatives of, like trying to squelch free speech, they're actively engaged in. It never fails. Anyone with half a brain cell to rub together can easily see it's the left squelching free speech on college campuses, leave it to Whimbrel to suggest it's the other way around however.

In the article they say it costs $500,000 in security to bring Richard Spencer to a college campus to speak as another excuse to why it's all OK.

Well how about left wing and progressive students not try to assassinate him or something? We get it, y'all don't like him. I assure you the number of people who want to hear what an asshole like Richard Spencer wants to say, is limited to the far, far fringe of the right.

If a sternly worded letter from the UN to dictators like Kim Jong Un on Human Rights violations is good enough for the progressives (after all, the UN is part of their utopian vision) then it seems this should be good enough for getting the message across at any college campus.

Send a VERY sternly worded letter to the administrator with all your immature demands and who knows, maybe like in Evergreen College and the University of Missouri they will do what you want... and suffer plunging enrollment in the years afterward. Cutting off the nose to spite the face is a very valid tactic.

It was very noticable in 2016 for U of M when they closed 4 dorms due to declines in freshman enrollment and as 2017 rolled around heads started rolling as they started cutting 400 positions due to lost revenue.

And those that do decide to go to the school will be taking on a tuition bump. Cause what's 2.1% more student debt when it's all for a good liberal cause like making sure U of M isn't soaking in institutional racism?

Institutional racism that was never proven by the way. From phony racist tweets linked back to agitators to shit swastics linked back to agitators, to a fake hunger strike by a student who came from extreme privilege who was didn't have to starve for longer than a day (he was no Ghandi, that's for sure), to "sightings of KKK" never corroborated, to a dean who "tried to run over" the student who actually threw himself in the way of the dean's car.

Fortunately the typical American College Student is lazy. The best they can usually manage is a hashtag campaign for anything that might occur more than a mile radius of their dorm room.

And while I, the typical Conservative Internet Poster, is also lazy, I have a lot more money to send to fund causes I think are important.

Posting that article was a mistake. I was just perusing the news on RCP, saw the headline, skimmed it, saw some phrases that related to things we had been talking about here, and posted it. I don't agree with everything in that article, I was not posting it to express my own views, but rather to just say, hey guys, look, there is an article in the news that is addressing the same things. But, of course, subject is only part of the issue, and I wasn't even paying attention to the perspective, which was clearly based left. I won't argue with the flaws in the article pointed out by Vallor, and I have no stake in whether the community as a whole or individually thinks the article is pointless. I don't embrace it, endorse it, and I won't defend it. Clearly whatever value it might have had as a point of interest or an outside perspective was outweighed by the partisan nature of those perspectives.
