Words of Wisdom From Justin Trudeau — New Year’s reflections

Until Justin Trudeau entered my life, I was but an ignorant fool, a prisoner of my own delusions. Until I heard his words of wisdom, I didn’t understand that the Chinese Communist dictatorship was something to be admired. Or that all Cubans were in love with Fidel Castro. Nor did I appreciate that Justin, in his speculations about the motivations of the Boston bombers, demonstrated his expertise in social psychology. He nailed it. Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam. It is just a manifestation of poor “excluded,” alienated youth whom we need to reach out to. We must “include them” so as to relieve them of their sad isolation. Perhaps Justin neglected to “include” his tenure as a Self-Help guru in his resume. Dr. Phil look out.

Obama: ‘White Americans’ Must Acknowledge ‘Slavery and Jim Crow’

Barack Obama took one last parting shot at “white people” during his farewell address on Tuesday.

He dedicated around a third of his speech to addressing the deterioration of race relations, though he insisted everything is just fine.

As every other sentence was a lie, I’ve broken it down piece by piece.

26 Questions Southerners Need To Answer

This is fairly accurate – we do say things differently than the rest of the country. It’s also a pretty good indicator that the liberals at Buzzfeed – and their readers – are just a little pretentious.

Well, isn’t that precious?

Government Control Not Gun Control

As seen in every single mass shooting, the government is completely incapable of protecting the citizenry from these kinds of attacks. If the people do not protect themselves, there is no protection. All “gun-control” laws do is fight or obstruct the people from protecting themselves. This is why state leaders have an obligation to declare any and all federal gun-control laws to be null and void and boldly declare to the people of their states that they will honor and protect the people’s right and duty to defend themselves.

Conservatives really are better looking, research says

A recently published study in the Journal of Public Economics concludes that the attractiveness of a candidate does correlate with their politics. They find that politicians on the right are more good looking in Europe, the United States and Australia.

The study shows correlation, not causation, but the researchers float a simple economic explanation for why this might happen. Numerous studies have shown that good-looking people are likely to earn more, and that people who earn more are typically more opposed to redistributive policies, like the progressive taxes and welfare programs favored by the left.

The hidden message in Obama’s ‘farewell’ speech

Two things you should know about Obama’s last hurrah:

First, it wasn’t so much “farewell” as “to be continued”.

Come a week from Friday, Obama will be the first ex-president since Woodrow Wilson to stay in Washington once his administration ends.

On Tuesday night, Obama made it clear that, unlike the enfeebled Wilson (or the gracious George W. Bush, for that matter), he plans to be quite vocal – on everything from illegal immigration, replacing ObamaCare, climate change, and the Iran nuclear deal – if he feels the necessity.

Second, Obama chose the moment and the setting (it’s where he gave his victory speech on Election Night 2012) to bask in idolatry rather than say much that will stand the test of time.

Left-wing activists plot to halt Trump’s inauguration in mass riot starting next week

According to websites run by organisers, they will take to the streets in mass protests beginning on January 14 in a bid to thwart security services.

And they are calling on US citizens from all over the country to travel to the city in a bid to destroy the festivities planned for Mr Trump’s swearing in ceremony.

Germany names its ‘ugliest’ word of the year: ‘People’s traitor’

The word is seen by many as having Nazi overtones and has been used recently by right-wing groups.

The decision was taken as part of the Unwort des Jahres contest, which literally means “unword of the year”.

The competition is held every year to pick a topical word that is deemed discriminatory, inflammatory or anti-democratic.

In recent times, members of Germany’s anti-Islam movement Pegida and the right-wing Alternative for Germany party (AfD) have taken to using Volksverraeter as an insult.

The panel – four linguists and a journalist – called it “a relic of dictatorship”.

Warmist Journalist Worries About The Emotional Toll Of Covering Climate In Age Of Trump

Andrew Freedman is Very Concerned. This follows on the heels of the meltdown by leading member of the Cult of Climastrology Eric Holthaus (who’s a pretty nice guy, from my interactions on Twitter), who has been driven to therapy.
