ANATOMY OF A DEEP STATE

Saturday, May 27th, 2017

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Anatomy of a Deep State

The EPA’s ‘Science Integrity Official’ is plotting to undermine Trump’s agenda.

May 26, 2017
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  In 2013 the EPA hired Francesca Grifo, longtime activist at the far-left Union of Concerned Scientists. Ms. Grifo had long complained that EPA scientists were “under siege”—according to a report she helped write—by Republican “political appointees” and “industry lobbyists” who had “manipulated” science on everything from “mercury pollution to groundwater contamination to climate science.”As Scientific Integrity Official, Ms. Grifo would have the awesome power to root out all these meddlesome science deniers. A 2013 Science magazine story reported she would lead an entire Scientific Integrity Committee, write an annual report documenting science “incidents” at the agency, and even “investigate” science problems—alongside no less than the agency’s inspector general.

And get this: “Her job is not a political appointment,” the Science article continues, “so it comes with civil service protections.” Here was a bureaucrat with the authority to define science and shut down those who disagreed, and she could not be easily fired, even under a new administration.

On May 8 a woman few Americans have heard of, working in a federal post that even fewer know exists, summoned a select group of 45 people to a June meeting in Washington. They were almost exclusively representatives of liberal activist groups. The invitation explained they were invited to develop “future plans for scientific integrity” at the Environmental Protection Agency.

Meet the deep state. That’s what conservatives call it now, though it goes by other names. The administrative state. The entrenched governing elite. Lois Lerner. The federal bureaucracy. Whatever the description, what’s pertinent to today’s Washington is that this cadre of federal employees, accountable to no one, is actively working from within to thwart Donald Trump’s agenda.

GENDER OBSESSED WEST SETS ITSELF UP FOR THE RISE OF ISLAM

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

 

The Gender Obsessed West Sets Itself Up for the Rise of Islam

www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10347/gender-culture-decline

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: There is a saying that civilizations can be destroyed from within, rather than by armies from without. If the West will not commit itself to preserving Western societies and values, it will fall. And its extraordinary progress will be blanketed over by darkness, along with all those gender rights.

According to Camille Paglia, “a purely secular culture risks hollowness and, paradoxically, sets itself up for the rise of fundamentalist movements that ominously promise to purify and discipline”. Such as — name it — radical Islam.

 

  • French authorities imposed on students ridiculous books such as Daddy Wears a Dress. It would have been comical if the following years would not have been so tragic. What, in fact, wrecked these French illusions was Islamic terrorism.
  • The only enemy these French élites knew were patriarchal privileges, since for them “domination” comes only from the white male Europeans.
  • Obsession with gender is a convenient distraction to avoid facing matters that are more difficult and less pleasant. If the West will not commit itself to preserving Western societies and values, it will fall. And its extraordinary progress will be blanketed over by darkness, along with all those gender rights.

Welcome to the progressive “next frontier of ‘liberation'”, where the most urgent question in Western democracies is “genderism”.

North Carolina was subjected to a year of being boycotted, until it withdrew its transgender bathroom law. Last month, the National Union of Teachers in Great Britain asked the government to teach children as young as two new transgender theories. New York recently presented the first “trans-doll“. American universities are wracked with hysteria over the correct use of neutral pronouns. Even National Geographic, instead of writing about lions and elephants, started covering the “Gender Revolution”. One of the first announcements of Emmanuel Macron, as the French President-elect, was that he would appoint officials from a “gender equal” list.

BACKLASH TO TRUMP’S INAUGURAL ADDRESS

Friday, May 19th, 2017

 

Thanks to Tony Bruno and Rick Pritcher for sharing this reminder about what President Trump actually said in his inaugural address that has caused such a firestorm among those whose power will be diminished under a Trump presidency.  Nancy   
www.whitehouse.gov/inaugural-address  PRESIDENT TRUMP’S INAUGURAL SPEECH

A Message to Remember…..

What President Trump said in his Inauguration may not be remembered, especially after
events which have transpired the past four months. But, it needs to be stated once again because this is the reason he is now our president and why Democrats, many Republicans, media, lobbyists, donors and even many government workers are desperately trying to destroy his presidency.
To most Americans nothing President Trump said in his opening remarks were cause for concern. Most Americans do not feel threatened, they merely have been beaten down.
Beaten down by excuses when government fails them, beaten down by policies which 
seem to benefit everyone but them, beaten down by companies doing better while 
employees are not.

Thanks to Rush Limbaugh for reminding his audience of Trump’s first message to the 

American people in his Inauguration address.
Here it is:

“Today’s ceremony has a very special meaning, because today we are not merely

transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another. 
We are transferring power from Washington and giving it back to you, the American 
people.”

LIBERALISM IS CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE OF HATE

The Liberal Lie So Big It May One Day Split the Country

John Hawkins

5/13/2017 12:01:00 AM – John Hawkins

“Civilization has been aptly called a ‘thin crust over a volcano.’ (Liberals) are constantly picking at that crust.”  Thomas Sowell

After Hollywood jackass Jimmy Kimmel was criticized for exploiting his son’s illness to push his political agenda and incorrectly insinuating that surgeries for newborns weren’t covered before Obamacare, he did a follow-up on the subject where he said, “I would like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care. It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.”

Drop dead, Jimmy Kimmel, you colossal ass.

This is a great example of what may be the most annoying, dishonest thing that liberals habitually do.

Jimmy Kimmel favors a certain political policy. It’s one that has been a disaster for tens of millions of Americans, including a lot of children.

Jimmy Kimmel could have said, “Obamacare may not be perfect and it may have been sold with a lot of lies, but I believe it’s worth it for everyone else to pay more so the small percentage of the population with pre-existing conditions and no insurance can be covered.” That pitch may not be a political winner, but at least it would be an honest argument.

Instead, Kimmel is essentially arguing that ONLY people who agree with him care about the healthcare of children and the rest of us want children to die.

This sort of rhetoric has become commonplace on the Left and it’s not just dishonest, it’s evil. It’s bad for the country. It could even potentially split the country apart one day because we won’t be able to continue to live with each other. In fact, we’ve already reached the point where California’s threats to secede are being met with cries of “faster please, what can we do to help?” from millions of conservatives.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON – ANCIENT LAWS, MODERN WARS

Ancient Laws, Modern Wars

Victor Davis Hanson

4/6/2017 12:01:00 AM – Victor Davis Hanson

The most dangerous moments in foreign affairs often come after a major power seeks to reassert its lost deterrence.

The United States may be entering just such a perilous transitional period.

Rightly or wrongly, China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and Middle East-based terrorists concluded after 2009 that the U.S. saw itself in decline and preferred a recession from world affairs.

In that void, rival states were emboldened, assuming that America thought it could not — or should not — any longer exercise the sort of political and military leadership it had demonstrated in the past.

Enemies thought the U.S. was more focused on climate change, United Nations initiatives, resets, goodwill gestures to enemies such as Iran and Cuba, and soft-power race, class and gender agendas than on protecting and upholding longtime U.S. alliances and global rules.

In reaction, North Korea increased its missile launches and loudly promised nuclear destruction of the West and its allies.

Russia violated its obligations under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and absorbed borderlands of former Soviet republics.

CONFORM ! – WE HAVE WAYS TO MAKE YOU

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

 

It is appalling  that these institutions are letting themselves be intimidated by the Human Rights Campaign which is peddling  the  political agenda of the LGBTQ community.   Nancy   
THE WEEKLY STANDARD

We Have Ways to Make You Conform

The Human Rights Campaign’s sham rankings.

The grievance-industry racket is as old as the culture war itself. But rarely has it been practiced as transparently as it was this past week by the Human Rights Campaign.

You may recall the Human Rights Campaign from its two-decade drive to legalize same-sex marriage, which HRC cleverly packaged as an apolitical, universal “human right.” Having won their victory through the majesty of Anthony Kennedy’s pen, however, the folks at HRC decided not to press on for same-sex marriage in, say, Saudi Arabia and China, but rather to throw themselves fully into shakedown mode here at home, where they make busy with corporate outreach (companies pay them to achieve bronze, silver, gold, or platinum “partnerships”) and fundraising (you can get a specialty HRC Visa card to automate donations) and bullying the occasional doctor or scientist who will not parrot the current orthodoxy on human sexuality.

Last fall, for instance, Lawrence Mayer and Paul McHugh published a report on sexuality and gender in the New Atlantis, a journal on technology and society. Mayer is an epidemiologist trained in psychiatry who is a resident scholar at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Paul McHugh is a professor of psychiatry at Hopkins. Their report, a review of the scientific literature on the nature of sexual orientation, sexuality, and gender identity, was a detailed yet accessible document written for a general audience. (We covered it in these pages at the time, “Studying the Unstudiable,” September 12, 2016.)

Right from the start, the Human Rights Campaign was unhappy with the report. The HRC began warning Johns Hopkins that it would take action against the institution if it did not take significant steps to distance the medical school from McHugh and Mayer’s report. The big threat: If Hopkins didn’t punish Mayer and McHugh, the school’s intransigence would hurt its rankings in HRC’s next Healthcare Equality Index (HEI).

THE LEFT’S WAR ON FREE SPEECH

The Left’s War on Free Speech

April 2017 • Volume 46, Number 4

Kimberley Strassel
Author, The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech

Kimberley StrasselKimberley Strassel writes the weekly “Potomac Watch” column for The Wall Street Journal, where she is also a member of the editorial board. A graduate of Princeton University, her previous positions at the Journal include news assistant in Brussels, internet reporter in London, commercial real estate reporter in New York, assistant editorial features editor, columnist for OpinionJournal.com, and senior editorial page writer. In 2013 she served as a Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Hillsdale College, and in 2014 she was a recipient of the Bradley Prize. She is the author of The Intimidation Game: How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech.

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on April 26, 2017, at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C., as part of the AWC Family Foundation Lecture Series.

EXCERPT FROM THIS SPEECH:  We need to think hard about ways to limit the powers of the administrative state, to stop rogue agents at the IRS and other agencies from trampling on free speech rights. We can make great progress simply by cutting the size of federal and state bureaucracies. But beyond that, we need to conduct systematic reviews of agency powers and strip from unaccountable bureaucracies any discretion over the political activities of Americans. The IRS should be doing what it was created to do—making sure taxpayers fill out their forms correctly. Period.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  “Being against diversity isn’t an issue of academic freedom. It is academic malpractice. If you can’t abide by Duke’s policies, you shouldn’t work for Duke,” Valerie Cooper, an associate professor at Duke Divinity School, said on Facebook earlier this month. (Associated Press)
 – The Washington Times – Monday, May 8, 2017

A professor is resigning from the Duke Divinity School after colleagues and administrators tried to punish him for publicly criticizing a “training” program espousing a liberal view of racism.

Paul Griffiths, Warren professor of Catholic theology, is just the latest academic to find himself out of a job for refusing to toe the progressive line.

Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, said viewpoint intolerance is becoming more common in higher education as “politically correct administrations pull out all of the stops to silence the last few remaining non-progressives on their faculty.”
