CALIFORNIA IS COMING FOR YOU

Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

 

Two  WSJ articles regarding California are included in this email.  The first, California is Coming for You and the second, is  California’s Radical Indoctrination.  Both are alarming and need to be stopped before the rest of the country is subjected to the radicalism that has overtaken California.   Nancy

California Is Coming for You

Its energy, tax and regulatory failures are the Democrats’ ideal for national policy.

 by Andy Kessler     August 30, 2020

I didn’t have to read the entire Democratic Party platform, let alone the spend-tasmagoric Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force recommendations. Sitting here in California, I’m already living it. If polls are to be believed, left-coast policies are coming to you soon—and you’re not going to like it. California is an early glimpse for the rest of the country of a blackout-rolling, water-deprived, tax-hiking, spending-spiking one-party state longing for its old incandescent glow.

The U.S. may flip to one party rule; California is already there. Democrats have controlled the state Assembly since 1997 and the governorship since 2011—or 1999 if you ignore Arnold the Governator, as most do. Single-party rule means single-party rules. We’re No. 1 in the top marginal income tax rate at 13.3%, including for capital gains. That beats New York City. We’re also No. 1 in state sales tax, but only ninth when you include local levies. Still impressive! Everything else follows.

This month Californians have been subjected to rolling blackouts because of the state’s renewable energy mandates—33% today, 60% by 2030 and 100% by 2045. When the sun goes down, which I understand happens every evening, solar cells are worthless. So California has to buy energy on the spot market—sometimes for 10 times normal prices when it’s hot. So we get rolling blackouts. This craziness could be yours too in the near future. Get used to higher bills and resetting your clocks.

California is No. 3 in the nation in water prices. Sad, since it grows 90% of America’s broccoli, 95% of its garlic, 71% of spinach, 69% of carrots and two-thirds of fruits and nuts. Your prices are going up. And kiss incandescent lightbulbs goodbye—most were outlawed in California as of Jan. 1. Someone please send a box of 60-watt flame-tip candelabra base bulbs my way. I’m getting desperate.

ARTICLE

Filmmaker Justin Malone’s documentary showcases stories of Black conservative thinkers

By James Varney – The Washington Times – Sunday, August 16, 2020

An occasional interview series with everyday Americans who are challenging the status quo.

Jolted by an MSNBC host’s hostile treatment of the late Herman Cain in a 2011 interview, filmmaker Justin Malone set out on a path bucking the media establishment that has led him to directing this year’s surprise hit documentary “Uncle Tom.”

He was just coming out of film school, uncertain of his politics and his future, when he saw MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell accuse then-Republican presidential candidate Cain, who died this month, of civil rights cowardice.

“I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Mr. Malone told The Washington Times. “I was sort of undergoing my own political transformation at the time and the seed was planted right there.”

He remains astonished that an accomplished Black professional could be treated with such boldfaced contempt on a television news program. The notion that conservative thinking could be perceived as hostile or alien to the Black experience captivated him.

“It just seemed silly, to think Black people couldn’t be conservative or couldn’t be Republican,” said Mr. Malone, who is White.

The outlook permeates his film “Uncle Tom,” a black-and-white documentary that showcases several Black conservatives.

THE CANCEL CULTURE

Saturday, August 1st, 2020

 

This first article, A Note to Readers, was written by the WSJ Editorial Board responding to a letter to their publisher from 280 WSJ colleagues who criticized the opinion pages of the WSJ for their refusal to adhere to the demands of the cancel culture in the choosing of the types of articles the opinion pages publish. Thank goodness the Editorial Board is standing up to totalitarian group think that has been sweeping our country !
If you click on the link below, you will be able to view the video  narrated by Daniel Henninger about the history of Marxist /Totalitarianism.  There is even a short clip of our beloved President Reagan speaking about Totalitarianism.
In the Second WSJ article below, you will find a very fine example of the type of articles that the Editorial Board chooses to publish in its Opinion pages.  In this article the author (  Mr. Michta is dean of the College of International and Security Studies at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. ) warns that America must push back against the  unrelenting assault of the neo-Marxist narrative that is being pushed by  the cancel culture today.    Nancy

A Note to Readers

These pages won’t wilt under cancel-culture pressure

 July 23, 2020   The Editorial Board

We’ve been gratified this week by the outpouring of support from readers after some 280 of our Wall Street Journal colleagues signed (and someone leaked) a letter to our publisher criticizing the opinion pages. But the support has often been mixed with concern that perhaps the letter will cause us to change our principles and content. On that point, reassurance is in order.

In the spirit of collegiality, we won’t respond in kind to the letter signers. Their anxieties aren’t our responsibility in any case. The signers report to the News editors or other parts of the business, and the News and Opinion departments operate with separate staffs and editors. Both report to Publisher Almar Latour. This separation allows us to pursue stories and inform readers with independent judgment.

It was probably inevitable that the wave of progressive cancel culture would arrive at the Journal, as it has at nearly every other cultural, business, academic and journalistic institution. But we are not the New York Times. Most Journal reporters attempt to cover the news fairly and down the middle, and our opinion pages offer an alternative to the uniform progressive views that dominate nearly all of today’s media.

VIDEO TUCKER CARLSON TELLS HOW HIS FAMILY WAS TERRORIZED

Friday, July 24th, 2020

 

Tucker Carlson tells of how his family was terrorized at their previous home in  Washington when his home address was made public by a left wing journalist.    Now the  NY Times  is trying to release information about where his family home is now.  You might expect something like this from a scumbag media type publisher but the New York Times?  These liberals have really gone over the edge in   trying to shut up conservatives.  God help us if they take over this country.     Republicans are certainly not without fault but it is absolutely imperative that we all vote for the Republican candidates in November.   Nancy

EXPLOSIVE VIDEO – GLENN BECK – “TIRED OF IT!”

Monday, June 8th, 2020

 

This is one of the most powerful videos that Glenn Beck has done.  Please share   Nancy    P.S.   This video will occasionally stop for a commercial..  Just click on SKIP AD and the video will continue.
Glenn has had enough. Do politicians on the left stand for ANYTHING that they preach? Because one month ago they were locking people inside their homes, ARRESTING business owners, and destroying our economy. They said it was necessary. They said millions of Americans would die from COVID-19 if we didn’t step in line, close our doors, and let our neighbor’s livelihoods be destroyed. But now, those very same leaders are out in the streets, surrounded by MASSES of people, marching in the Floyd protests san-mask. What happened to COVID-19? Social distancing? They called the Tea Party protests violent. But now, according to CNN, violence should be EXPECTED when fighting injustices. And while riots destroy our cities and our nation burns, sharing our thoughts on the electronic “public square” only brings even stronger efforts to edit unpopular opinions out of existence.

U.S. ORDERS DUKE AND U.N.C. TO RECAST TONE IN MIDEAST STUDIES

U.S. Orders Duke and U.N.C. to Recast Tone in Mideast Studies

WASHINGTON — The Education Department has ordered Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to remake the Middle East studies program run jointly by the two schools after concluding that it was offering students a biased curriculum that, among other complaints, did not present enough “positive” imagery of Judaism and Christianity in the region.

In a rare instance of federal intervention in college course content, the department asserted that the universities’ Middle East program violated the standards of a federal program that awards funding to international studies and foreign language programs. The inquiry was part of a far-reaching investigation into the program by the department, which under Betsy DeVos, the education secretary, has become increasingly aggressive in going after perceived anti-Israel bias in higher education.

That focus appears to reflect the views of an agency leadership that includes a civil rights chief, Kenneth L. Marcus, who has made a career of pro-Israel advocacy and has waged a yearslong campaign to delegitimize and defund Middle East studies programs that he has criticized as rife with anti-Israel bias.

In this case, the department homed in on what officials saw as a program that focused on the region’s Muslim population at the expense of its religious minorities. In the North Carolina program’s outreach to elementary and secondary school students, the department said, there was “a considerable emphasis placed on the understanding the positive aspects of Islam, while there is an absolute absence of any similar focus on the positive aspects of Christianity, Judaism or any other religion or belief system in the Middle East.”

Too few of the Duke-U.N.C. programs focused on “the historic discrimination faced by, and current circumstances of, religious minorities in the Middle East, including Christians, Jews, Baha’is, Yazidis, Kurds, Druze and others,” the department said.

With its actions, the department entered the debate over Israel and Palestinians that has roiled campuses around the country.

The department’s action “should be a wake-up call,” said Miriam Elman, an associate professor at Syracuse University and the executive director of the Academic Engagement Network, which opposes the boycott-Israel movement that has animated campus activism across the country. She added, “What they’re saying is, ‘If you want to be biased and show an unbalanced view of the Middle East, you can do that, but you’re not going to get federal and taxpayer money.’”

Palestinian rights groups accused the Education Department of intimidation and infringing on academic freedom.

OBAMA’S SOCIAL JUSTICE MILITARY EXPERIMENT

Monday, September 9th, 2019

 

 NEW YORK POST

How Obama turned the military into a social justice experiment

By Kyle Smith   September 4, 2019

A curious thing happened in the second half of the Obama era: The commander-in-chief began viewing the military less as an entity designed to destroy enemies but a tool with which to achieve progressive goals. Warriors were turned into social-justice warriors. Men and women with risible-to-nonexistent military records were made heads of the services. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus (who had logged all of two years’ service as a junior officer) named ships after Cesar Chavez and Harvey Milk.

James Hasson, a former Army captain who served in Afghanistan, stresses in “Stand Down: How Social Justice Warriors Are Sabotaging the Military” that he isn’t making a partisan, political case against President Barack Obama’s efforts to reshape the military.

He asks important, nonpartisan questions, such as what is the military really for? And is it career military people or civilian bureaucrats who are better equipped to understand how to optimize its potential?

Hasson takes a sobering look at such matters as drastically lowering standards in order to pass more women through Army Ranger school, ignoring data showing that all-male Marine units outperformed mixed-sex ones and that female recruits are more likely to suffer serious injuries.

Hasson reports on a program in which male soldiers were ordered to train in fake breasts and distended bellies so they could experience what life was like for pregnant soldiers. Ordering a recruit to do more than 10 pushups as punishment for minor misdeeds was declared unduly harsh.

The Obama policy to overturn centuries of precedent and treat troops in accordance with whatever gender identity they declared, writes Hasson, is widely deemed within the military to be unlike the issue of homosexuality. For one thing, transgender individuals were already serving. Yet because the military ranks combat readiness ahead of soothing the psyches of its members, those individuals were required to meet standards according to their immutable biological sex.

If you are born male, you may call yourself female if you like, but you will still be held to the physical-fitness standards of other biological males. (The Obama policy decreed that troops could change their gender marker without undergoing sex-reassignment surgery or making any other physical changes.)
