Seriously?

Chicago Catholics have gotten into the venison business:

A spokesperson for the archdiocese assured CBS 2 no illegal hunting is going on at the cemetery, which made us ask about lawful hunting. That’s when we discovered deer are being killed on this property, by licensed professionals with permission from the church.

“Lay your loved ones to rest here, but let us kill the beautiful animals that are walking around. How right is that?” Tammy said.

The herd is apparently too big, causing safety issues, but when CBS 2 asked about specific examples, we weren’t given any by the Archdiocese.
As expected, the weirdo "you can't hurt an animal ever" crowd came in with their unrealistic expectations.
Whatever the problem, the animal lovers thought of a solution.

“What they should be doing is tranquilizing the deer and relocating them,” Tammy said.

“Look at their eyes. They’re so beautiful. How could you kill them?” Franks said.
Easy: you pull the trigger. When an animal needs it, an animal gets it (I actually had to kill not one but two cats in 2020).

Helpful hint, it's a lot easier than tranquilizing and relocating them.

Can you spot the difference?

From Haverford College warning students that during a pandemic they shouldn't protest for safety purposes:

From Toronto Mayor John Tory reacting to anti-lockdown protests: Quick, what's the difference between them? Well, the big one is that the Haverford statement also spoke out in favour of the protesters' cause, which Tory has not. He isn't even willing to say "I agree that you have the inalienable right to this protest but I'm begging you not to do it."

Roger Kimball on FakePresident Biden

A broken political order that puts a senile moron into office by virtue of hiding him and the truths about him (and Hunter) from the populace:

Really, it is an amazing, not to say an ominous, spectacle. As one Twitter wit put it, Donald Trump brought peace to the Middle East, Joe Biden brought war to Washington. 

The ostensible reason for turning the capital of the United States into an armed camp is to protect the mostly virtual inauguration of China’s Big Guy, Joe Biden, against the onslaught of all those “right-wing extremists,” “white supremacists,” etc. that the magical magus Donald Trump is mobilizing through secret “dog whistles” and other shamanistic practices. 

The trouble is, all those “right-wing extremists,” like President Trump’s supposed “incitement” of the crowd at his “Save America” rally on January 6, are a figment of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer’s addled imaginations. Yes, that meme is assiduously, not to say preposterously, circulated and amplified by the media, social and anti-social alike. But those threatening hordes do not exist.

Just so, the violent mob scene at the Capitol on January 6 was not an “insurrection” or an act of “domestic terrorism” but rather, as Tucker Carlson put it, a political protest that “got out of hand.” 

Here’s something else that has got out of hand: the American political order. 

"Save America" was a good slogan. "New Trump Army" is another. If you really want to get the left's panties in a bunch (I'm looking at you Richard Levine) call us the "New Resistance"

As the years go by, historians, if the censors allow them access to the documents and give them leave to publish their findings, will count the 2016 presidential election as the last fair and open democratic election. 

Beginning with the election of 2020, the game was rigged. 

I know, I know, we are not supposed to say that, and Twitter, Forbes, Facebook, and other woke guardians of the status quo will frown upon the suggestion. 

But every honest person knows that the 2020 election was rigged. 

The statistician William M. Briggs has a handy round-up of the evidence. He also makes the commonsense observation, “If a party cheats, and is in charge of investigating accusations of cheating, and if the media calls the cheating a conspiracy theory, and if the rulers move to expel those who question the cheating, as has already happened, then that party will win by virtue of its power.”

That, as he goes on to observe, “is the way power works.” 

I have a few thoughts about the election fraud that I'll try to get to over the coming weeks. If you follow me on YouTube you may have seen some of them already.

The central fact to appreciate about Donald Trump is that he was elected without the permission, and over the incredulous objections, of the woke oligarchy that governs us.

The end of the internet

There's a lot of good stuff in this Quillette post by Allen Farrington about Big Tech's anti-conservative bias:

Bizarrely, conservatives reacted to this development by lamenting the lack of arbitrary government intervention in private enterprise, while their liberal opponents celebrated corporate squashing of individual expression. If you don’t like it, build your own app.

Arguably more important, if less sensational, has been the coordinated nuking of the efforts of those Trump fans who did, in fact, build their own app. Google and Apple banned conservative social media aspirant Parler from their app stores, effectively throttling its only viable distribution channels. Amazon then went a step further and revoked Parler’s right to host its site on its web service, AWS. For good measure, authentication service Okta and internet-to-telecoms interface platform Twilio withdrew their infrastructure too. If you don’t like it, build your own internet.
Culminating in (of note considering what happened with V-Dare's founder):
Operation Choke Point. This was a Department of Justice initiative that ran from 2013 to 2015 and which involved pressuring banks and payment processors with threats of costly compliance measures. These sanctions were extra-legal punishment for facilitating the financing of legal but ideologically disfavoured businesses such as payday lenders, firearms and ammunition dealers, escort services, and more. Of course, there is no recourse, legal or even practical, to being cut off from banking. If banks won’t serve you, you cannot access modern payment rails, and so you cannot run a business at all. If you don’t like it, build your own money.
He even ends with a Lord of the Rings analogy:
We might call the solution of the Quillette editors the Uncle Ben approach: that with great power comes great responsibility, and that if this power exists, it should be dealt with as responsibly as possible. My proposed solution, on the other hand, is that of Elrond: nobody can wield this power, and those most confident they would use it for good are precisely those who must not be allowed to have it. While I’m sure Claire Lehmann would make a decent Galadriel and would not succumb to the temptation to abuse this power, there are far too many Boromirs for the possibility to be an acceptable risk. The ring must be destroyed.

But the real meat comes from the comment by "Mysterion", and his frankly honest and concerning look at the future:

Key point here. Everyone outside the US, no matter what their position on censorship, must now believe there is now a huge problem with free speech and the internet.

Either you believe

  1. that the banning of Trump was essential to democracy, or
  2. you believe it was a threat to democracy

If you believe 1, you have to ask yourself whether a ban would be forthcoming from Twitter if you had a Trump_2 in your own country. Twitter hasn’t banned the Chinese government from its service, or any authoritarian leaders abroad as far as I know.

If you think that it is essential to democracy that an authoritarian in your country should be banned, can you really defend the idea that decision should be in the hands of a foreign corporation?

It just isn’t a viable position to believe that a ban should in place and that Twitter should decide, if you live outside the US.

If you believe 2, then the position is, of course, even worse. A transnational commons is now being policed by a US corporate with the ability to decide what can be said in the public square in other countries. It is not even under the potential/notional control of foreign voters (as it is in the US).

Remember the dictionary entry that was updated to render the phrase “sexual preference” offensive moments after Amy Barratt said it. Anyone and anything could be misrepresented as a violation of some unspecified code in unpredictable ways and banned. In the words of the Sex Pistols - no one is innocent.

This seems to be the line taken by Merkel and EU leaders. We should expect an EU initiative to split Twitter and Facebook into separate legal entities, with the EU legal entity under the suasion of the EU. The internet is likely to balkanise as a result.

This logic is implacable. Whatever your position on censorship or free speech, we are heading towards regionally controlled areas of the internet.

What else did she expect?

Tamara K at the Books Bikes Broomsticks Blog (there's a mouthful!) tried asking Twitter users why grocery baggers deserve minimum wage. It went as well as you might expect.


She was perhaps unaware that, since the social network is actively removing conservatives, therefore the only people still on the platform skew hard-left? It's one of the reasons I routinely bug journalists asking why their news stories on "online reaction" don't include such caveats.

Sophie Trudeau gets jungle fever, Canadian taxpayers get the bill

I somehow missed this when it first came out, though I was fairly occupied in the week of August 21st, but Harrington Lake renovations were being performed simply because Justin "Rat Bastard 2.0" Trudeau is unable to sexually satisfy his wife.

Canada’s National Capital Commission (NCC), the federal agency that manages national heritage properties including the Prime Minister’s homes, was directed to construct a sprawling second mansion at Harrington Lake by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in late 2019 — shortly after the federal election in October and just days following turbulence in the marriage of Justin Trudeau and Sophie Gregoire, a source inside the PMO tells The Chronicle.

The $8.6 million in federal spending was not publicly disclosed until April of this year, which included $3 million to renovate the main house, $2.5 million to reconstruct and relocate what has been described as a caretaker’s house on the grounds, and $3.6 million to construct a second mansion that is intended for the Trudeaus’ use.

Just days after Gregoire threatened to divorce Trudeau last October, when she first began refusing to sleep under the same roof with him, the PMO ordered the NCC to proceed with millions of dollars in unplanned projects at the Prime Ministerial retreat.
This isn't the only time Sophie's interest in a British nigger hurt the working people who get robbed by the federal government either...remember the infamous WE Charity trip where she and Elba both got the Wuhan Flu and then never infected her husband? Yep, also paid for by taxpayers.

Ditto the Shiny Pony's Costa Rica trip that was an excuse to get the grey in his beard (and escape his wife who hates him almost as much as a random Albertan), and in all likelihood his recent secret trip to Barbados.

Despite the (typical, but inexplicable) fascination women have to men in the Trudeau family, apparently Shiny Pony is such a lousy husband and lover that his wife has to seek BBC in the land of the BBC.

But it's the rest of us who play the role of sugar daddy.

Deep Space Nine on Blu-Ray

Will Star Trek: Deep Space Nine ever be released on Blu-Ray? No.


Will it ever get an HD remaster? No.

Recently on their 2021 "State of the Podcast" show The Pensky File broached the topic, speculating that when machine learning reaches the next pinnacle of automatic HD remastering in the next 3-7 years that we'll end up being able to download torrents of HD DS9.

You can watch a minor example from CaptRobau on YouTube...warning, you'll need to watch this fullscreen on a laptop screen or larger to notice much improvement:

As a minor aside, why is the go-to episode always "Sacrifice of Angels"? Why not an HD restoration of the battle between the USS Odyssey and the Jem'Hdar back in season two? I personally think this is one of the great moments in all of Trek...

Anyways I mentioned you'd want to watch on a larger screen, because the results are...underwhelming. At least from the scenes we've been shown, the technology isn't quite there yet. If it ever will be: after all, there's some information that's simply forever lost because of how VFX and 35mm elements were combined in the 80s and 90s.

"Crybully"

Daniel Greenfield back in 2015 wrote on the Woke Left and how they try to turn conservatives' inherent human decency into the proverbial rope to hang yourself with:

It’s impossible to have a rational conversation with a crybully because it doesn’t walk to talk to you; it wants to loudly broadcast its feelings. As one Yale crybully wrote, “I don’t want to debate. I want to talk about my pain.” My pain. Me. Stop arguing with me and start paying attention to me right now.

A crybully’s pain isn’t caused by poverty, disease or an elephant stepping on its toes. Instead it’s caused by the existence of other people who don’t take its ridiculous claims of suffering seriously.

And:

That’s how the victimocracy is ruled.

The campus crymobs demand that everyone who isn’t a crybully shut up and never speak again on pain of having to undergo privilege training sessions by otherwise unemployable identity politics studies majors.

And that is just the crymob with a permanent university position and a paycheck. The great dream of the crybully is to force every student to submit to daily crybullying. The crybully is just a weak, cowardly government licensed bully who wants a job bullying people for life while talking about his suffering.

Sound familiar? Finally:

The crybully embodies the left. He is an oppressed oppressor. An abusive victim. A self-righteous hypocrite. A loudmouth censor. A civil rights activist who wants to take everyone’s rights away.

Now where have we seen that before?  

Defund Libraries

An Arizona librarian was fired for the "crime" of speaking out against #NiggerLivesMoreImportantThanSocietyMotherFucker and endorsing the view that libraries need to be neutral and (actually) inclusive

The ALA found a dissident worthy of crushing in bookmobile librarian Ron Kelley. Kelley devoted his life to diversity and inclusion, not in the way that woke college students pretend to by posting platitudes on Twitter and attending the occasional Black Lives Matter protest, but in real ways that left him poorer than he started and eventually out of a job. 
His own takedown of their BurnLootMurder advocacy is worth a read:
The propagandistic posting below, apparently forwarded from the current president of ABOS, about the Black Lives Matter organization is extremely unwise. Overt politicization of this list-serv will destroy this forum. Do members want a political battlefield, strong-armed by ALA-sanctioned propaganda, or an open exchange forum for outreach improvement? Or, truly, in the heart of our festering Culture Wars, are only dictated political perspectives permitted about library outreach programs in these discussions? Such ham-handed, totalitarian directives are apparently endorsed by ABOS, as well as the ALA, to the obvious exclusion of other views. Will this ABOS discussion group kick out (censor) individuals who advocate for a non-political forum?

It’s an old adage that is increasingly under attack: Libraries should provide aid and information to ALL who seek it and not function as a politicized, prejudicial Advocacy Factory.

Diversity? Inclusion? 82% of American librarians are women. Why no interest in gender diversity in this genre of workplace? Or is the presumption here that of the usual “social justice” template, that all males are innately oppressors, naturally affluent, born cursed, and they don’t like “women’s work?” Or are men relatively illiterate? Which stereotype suffices to righteously ignore this glaring stat about women’s dominance of the library world?

Here, below, are some Black authors with alternative perspectives on the Black Lives Matter movement, and/or beyond. I’ve read/viewed some of this material, but not all of it. I formally endorse nothing, I do not know all of which every individual advocates, but recognize that the fundamental purpose of a library is to provide a broad range of information/materials for ALL patrons, and a wide realm of fact and opinion, not solely bending to a favorite, dictated ideological line. A much-needed “diversity of viewpoints,” perhaps the greatest diversity of them all, cuts across race, class, and gender.

Libraries – and this discussion forum — should remain apolitical. ALA — and ABOS, apparently now in tow by the neck — adheres to one-dimensional thought in heralding a single political view while implicitly dismissing/censoring other perspectives, something akin to Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, or Orwell’s masterpieces. Ignoring some strains of thought — and relentlessly highlighting, and overtly advocating for, others — is a discrete form of censorship, as any librarian knows in collection development.

Library workers are supposed to be informed. They ought to be readers, and open wide the doors to ALL visitors, not shut – or narrow — them.

And a librarians’ job should be to serve their communities’ respective needs, not to manipulate information and tell people what to think.

The ALA email below solicits activism in the Black Lives Matter movement and offers “resources on educating yourself.” In this regard, do you think that this grossly prejudicial email would dare to encompass the following?
There are many more alternative Black perspectives, but they are not popularly heralded by those with vested ideological devotion to Marxism, post-Modernism, and/or, generally, the “social justice” narratives of the political Left, i.e. the likes of the American Library Association. The ALA has long since failed – by conscious political design – to be an objective arbiter of what is or is not “fake news.” (See, for example, its endorsement of the prejudicial and partisan ideology of “critical librarianship,” which rejects the aims of an objective neutrality. Examine also what brand of individual speaks at the ALA’s conventions, both national and sectional. And who/what is forbidden its forum.)
Over the past few years, critical librarianship has become a force that pervades every area of our work, from reference to library instruction, collection development, cataloging, and storytime. Biweekly #critlib Twitter chats (crit​lib.org) address topics across all areas of librarianship. Many librarians are thinking about how they can fight for social justice in their work, which raises the question of whether that work reflects the neutrality that has long been a value in our profession.

One tenet of critical librarianship is that neutrality is not only unachievable, it is harmful to oppressed groups in our society. In a world that is fundamentally unequal, neutrality upholds inequality and represents indifference to the marginalization of members of our community. If the majority of what is published represents a white, male, Christian, heteronormative worldview, then we are not supporting the interests of other members of our communities by primarily buying those works.

As Megan Fox notes in her article,  Ron Kelley has his own bona fides that should put his accusers to shame. Instead, they fired him for simply disagreeing with them:

In my current library job, one of my responsibilities is to serve the Navajo Nation that strides the eastern side of Arizona. (God help them during the Hell they are going through in the current pandemic). I have written proposals (my ideas, my initiatives) and landed TWO grants to get books and movies – about the Navajo, and some other Native Americans, including the Hopi – for use by the Navajo community and others. The first grant was expressly devised to acquire books and movies created BY NAVAJO individuals who defined their OWN experience and community—memoirs, poetry, films, and on and on. Whatever I was able to find…The later, second, grant was to get books and movies by anyone about the Navajo. This recent effort has been to get as many perspectives as possible, to widen and inform the results of the first grant.

I also went out of my way (beyond bookmobile duties) to land a THIRD grant (I also wrote that proposal – by my own initiative) to get a few thousand dollars-worth of educational/technological tools for a “STEM” project at a Navajo school in Leupp, Arizona. I joined with a wonderful library coworker whose expertise was to set up a program at that school, and she further partnered with an educational center in Phoenix to get the project accomplished.

MAYBE one of my persecutors at ABOS has done something vaguely like that.

But I’m still not finished pulling myself out of the extremists’ cesspool. If you’re lying down on the floor, flustered with shock that your routine stereotypes of dissenters don’t stick in my direction, don’t stand up yet.

Don't think for a second that the situation at tax-funded Canadian libraries aren't even worse...the question becomes will anybody be willing to speak out about it?

Alexandra Kitty: more than 230 Hamilton hospital workers have gotten the Wuhan Flu.

If hospitals in Hamilton cannot contain a virus, they have failed.

F-A-I-L-E-D.

Public healthcare in Ontario scores another Chinese animal virus victory!

But back to the big black eye Hamilton Health Sciences has because that’s a lot of workers who have the cooties.

So, what do we know?

  1. Masks don’t work!
  2. Sanitation with cancer-causing disinfectants doesn’t work!
  3. Social distancing doesn’t work!
  4. Lockdowns don’t work!
  5. Isolation doesn’t work!

There is your real-life proof. The world is a living laboratory and here is Mother Nature — our intrepid truth-loving scientist — letting the world know in no uncertain terms that HHS is an epic fail in their knowledge base.

Say it with me, gang…

Masks don’t work. Masks don’t work. (Repeat until it sinks in).

Lockdowns don’r work. Lockdowns don’t work. (Repeat until it sinks in).

Meanwhile, courtesy of Blazing Cat Fur, Hamilton is in the news for another reason: Ontario Has A Stay-At-Home Order, So Why Are 5 Movies Filming In Hamilton?

Meanwhile (BCF again): anti-lockdown protesters in Hamilton are charged. Next time bring a film camera or a stethoscope, guys!

Punching back twice as hard and then knocking out their teeth with a baseball bat

Back in October you may have seen this story floating around: the far-left CBC was getting extra money from taxpayers:

The Liberal government wants taxpayers to bailout the CBC after reporting abysmal advertising revenues. 

According to Blacklock’s Reporter, the CBC will get a 9.8% increase in funding for 2020, alongside an additional $33,733,999 grant.

Well the CBC didn't like this coverage, and insisted they take it down

The Supplementary Estimates B, tabled in Parliament last week, document (p. 2-13) CBC/Radio-Canada's internal transfer of $33.7 million from its current capital budget to its current operating budget. As the Estimates make clear, this is an "Internal reallocation of resources for the COVID-19 impact to advertising revenues and operating costs".

The Estimates also show $36.7 million which CBC/Radio-Canada is seeking to advance from fiscal 2021–22 to fiscal 2020–21 in order to offset payments made on broadcast rights for the now-delayed Tokyo Olympics. These payments will not be recovered until the Olympics are held next summer and are described in the Estimates as "Funding for broadcasting rights for the Tokyo Olympics". In turn, CBC/Radio-Canada's appropriation for 2021–22 will be reduced by $36.7 million.

Neither of these transfers constitutes additional funding.

The first question you ask, of course, about the $33.7M that the CBC is now going to spend money on for its operating budget is what would have happened had it stayed in the capital budget? For that you'd have to delve into the rabbit hole that is CBC finances. How did that one research paper last year put it? Oh yeah:

Forum for Research and Policy in Communications (FRPC), An Analysis of CBC’s financial history from 1937 to 2019: We tried to follow the money; Frodo had it easier, Research paper (Ottawa, February 2020).

It's worth noting that Blacklocks, TNC, and Rebel all stand by the story.

In fact, earlier this week Rebel news posted their epic reply to the CBC and it's a hoot. I screamed in delight. Really. The whole article is worth a read, but here's Ezra's response to their "please correct your story" letter:

Hi Leon.

As your reporters will likely tell you, I do not engage with anyone from Trudeau's CBC state broadcaster until they first disavow the corporation's endemic culture of bigotry, including the misogynistic culture epitomized by Jian Ghomeshi and the anti-Black culture epitomized by Wendy Mesley.

As the director of “issues management”, I suspect you were deeply involved in both of these scandals, including the outrageous and likely illegal “war room” set up to discredit Ghomeshi's accusers. You also likely knew of Mesley's racism and were part of the internal cover-up.

Because I don't like to deal with bigots, I will reply to your letter only after we clear up this old business: will you renounce and apologize for the CBC's culture of misogyny and anti-Black racism?

Erin O'Toole, please take note. 

Probably unrelated: CBC is infamous for stealing stories from other news outlets and not crediting the original authors of the story. They credited Blacklocks with breaking the RCMP recruitment story last summer.

The Queen of Mean

.
Psycho bitch and Justin's good buddy forced to resign.
.
This is why the job should stay in the realm of straight white men.

"It seems that practically the whole world west of Asia and Australasia has fared pretty poorly in these efforts. The extraordinary sacrifices to health, wealth and education made in the name of fighting Covid have not paid off."

Over at Spiked Online, Fraser Myers discusses how the west's lockdown obsession leaves us less free than the ChiComs leave their citizens:

Many in the West have marvelled at China’s response to the Covid outbreak. The idea of a city-wide, state-wide or nationwide lockdown had never been tried until January 2020. This aspect of the experiment in Wuhan was quickly adopted as the primary tool used by governments across the world to contain the virus.

What is often overlooked is China’s extraordinary efforts in case isolation. The reproduction of the virus stayed constant for a week after Wuhan’s lockdown was introduced. But it plunged dramatically when the authorities began to isolate positive cases in central quarantine facilities. Tens of thousands of people were housed temporarily in hotels and student accommodation as well as newly kitted-out sports halls and exhibition centres.

In the West, we could do this on a purely voluntary basis.
"Voluntary basis" doesn't satisfy the sick desires of the Viro Fascist though Fraser, where have you been?

Fraser also talks about old facilities and systems and principles that we used for previous disease outbreaks, a topic I broached last April. My call was for Pox Parties, his is for Fever Hospitals:
One way we could have both increased capacity and reduced hospital-acquired infections would be to have re-established fever hospitals, as outlined by Tom Jefferson and Carl Heneghan of Oxford’s Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine. These hospitals were common a century ago though as many infectious diseases have now been vanquished by modern medicine, the hospitals had largely become redundant. But even in their heyday, many fever hospitals remained closed most of the time and were only reopened in the event of serious outbreaks.
Canada never had Fever Hospitals like the UK or India did, but we did have something close: Tuberculosis Hospitals (again, a topic I've written about once or twice if you're noticing a trend) such as the Charles Camsell in centralish-northwest Edmonton. Of course like the British version these have been closed down for a very very long time, but that there was no talk of opening them and only a little grumbling about "field hospitals" (that unlike the "experts" at SAGE, conservative websites were assuring you wouldn't be necessary).

I also note with curiosity from Myer's article that inefficient public sector hospitals were a prime spreader of this coronavirus (similar to how an inefficient public sector Toronto hospital was a prime spreader of a previous coronavirus):
Although the data are incomplete, it is clear that a substantial number of Covid infections are acquired in hospitals, a problem that cannot be addressed by a general lockdown. In May, the NHS estimated that 10 to 20 per cent of its Covid patients were infected as inpatients. Between 1 August and 26 November, 16 per cent of infections were hospital-acquired. In some hospital trusts, hospital-acquired infections can represent a third of all Covid cases.

Plus he gets a big lake in Bosnia named after him

What's this "one of" nonsense?


President Trump's Middle East peace deals alone put him as one of the most accomplished Presidents in history.

Full Stop.

Post #3200 Baby!

Well so much for reaching this point in 2020 under President Donald Trump as originally hoped. Instead we're in the darker (literally) days of FakePresident Joe "Asterisk" Biden and 2021.


Still, we're ramping back up in posts again and should be able to get the 3300th post in during 2021 as well.

It's an open question if FakePresident Biden will still be alive by then though.

RIP Joe Scheidler

We're losing a lot of the greats so far in 2021...


Known as the godfather of the pro-life movement, Scheidler was famous for his street activism. “He learned his direct-action techniques from the 1960s civil rights movement, when he marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,” according to Celebrate Life, a publication of the American Life League, the organization which Scheidler founded in 1980.

Congratulations Vice President Nigger!


Camel-a Harris is one "dog-petting accident" away from the Oval Office.

(yes, all the old jokes are new again)

Billy Crystal mildly repudiates evil faggots, the left goes nuts

Editor's Note: this post, originally scheduled to publish on January 20th 2015, got caught up in draft status. As a result, here is the post a mere five years late (with the YoungCons link replaced with the Wayback archived version...as yet another conservative blog has been vanished).

On Monday, Billy Crystal said what a lot more people are thinking that the chattering classes are prepared to admit.
“Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are,” Crystal said while promoting his new show, The Comedians, which premieres April 9. “I hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face … to the point where it feels like an every day kind of thing.”
That's all he said. It wasn't even particularly strong. He just said that sodomites are in-your-face and pushing their agenda down the viewer's throats.

He didn't even say he was against it. That puts his repudiation of fudge packing on less of a rhetorical footing than the New York Times' support for free speech. And while the NY Times got in no serious trouble from its well-connected supporters, even when it doubled down, Billy Crystal was immediately pilloried by the usual excitable collection of faggots.

Fortunately, the comments section on the National Post comment section features lots of examples of right-thinking people who are still willing to speak out against uranists,

YoungCons provides a lot of quality commentary on this issue as well.
With homosexuals only making up three percent of the population, why is Hollywood aggressively shoving these explicit scenes between two members of the same sex in front of our eyes?

To normalize the behavior, to desensitize people to it to such an extent that they no longer think it’s strange or goes against the natural order of things.

He solves the problem in his last sentence

The Globe and Mail's John Ibbitson on why FakePresident Biden is cancelling KeystoneXL:

Miss Donald Trump yet?

Transition documents suggest that Joe Biden plans to rescind the permit to construct the Keystone XL pipeline as one of his first acts as U.S. president. This would be a blow not only to Canada’s oil and gas sector, but to relations between the two countries in the wake of the disastrous Trump presidency.

And it will strain national unity, once it becomes clear that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is prepared to surrender on Keystone while still fighting tooth-and-nail to win an exemption from the Biden administration’s Buy American initiative, which would harm manufacturers in Ontario and Quebec.
Of course he has to start (for the sake of the Globe and Mail editors) by telling typical leftist lies about Donald J. Trump. The "disastrous Trump presidency" doesn't bother Modi or Bibi or BoJo or all sorts of mature and reasonable world leaders or even Merkel and Macron for that matter: only for retarded babies like the Shiny Pony and his sycophants.
Western separatists are wrong to assert that the Liberals don’t care about the region’s interests – the Trudeau government was so committed to the Trans Mountain pipeline it bought the company. But the first priority of any federal government, Liberal or Conservative, is going to be preserving jobs in Central Canada, where most people live. That’s simply the way of the world.
If your question in that paragraph is "what did Ibbitson get wrong" the better question is "did he get anything right"? Shiny Pony didn't buy the pipeline to "commit to it", he bought it to destroy it. It's standard procedure for evil leftists:
If the priority of federal governments were preserving jobs "where most people live", that stopped being Central Canada a generation ago: the population outside the "Golden Triangle" of Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto exceeded the population within it while Preston Manning was Leader of the Opposition. Manufacturing has been whittling away in Central Canada -- Biden's old nigger boss was a big proponent of that remember. Plus "most people live" in non-essential industries (as defined by governments of course: reality says that every worker is an essential worker) and the federal government has been falling over themselves to take those jobs away. On a macro level, "most people live" in a "way of the world" with two genders and where thugs are to be avoided rather than emulated. That never seems to bother the Shiny Pony, so why should this?
Mr. Trump was a friend to oil and gas. He reversed former president Barack Obama’s rejection of the Keystone project, issuing the presidential permit to allow the pipeline to cross the Canada-U.S. border.

As a candidate, Mr. Biden pledged to reverse the reversal. TC Energy, Ottawa, Alberta and Saskatchewan were hoping they would at least be given a chance to make the case for Keystone. That case is compelling.

Construction is well under way, with the cross-border portion of the line already completed. Cancelling the project will cost thousands of jobs in both countries. TC Energy is committed to reducing carbon emissions, while the oil that replaces what Keystone would provide American refineries comes from countries with little or no commitment to fighting global warming.

By cancelling Keystone at the outset of his administration, Mr. Biden would be saying he has no interest in hearing what Canada has to say, which is the kind of reflexive, reason-free action that you might have expected from Mr. Trump.
Trump's actions benefit both countries (and these 'carbon emissions' that only clueless clowns care about), while Biden's actions harm both countries without really improving the precious environment. Ibbitson really has a lot of difficulty with this doesn't he? The President Trump in his head turns out to be completely unrelated to the President Trump on our own mortal plane, and it bothers the hell out of him. "Reflexive reason-free action" is the exclusive purview of leftists? Who could have thought it?

“Peremptorily revoking the permit without first giving Canada a chance to make its case wouldn’t exactly send a signal [of] renewed friendship that he has promised towards America’s closest allies,” Roland Paris tweeted Monday. Prof. Paris, a political scientist at University of Ottawa, was Mr. Trudeau’s first foreign policy adviser.

Mr. Trudeau will protest, but eventually give way, for several reasons. First, he wants to establish strong relations with the Biden administration, and a protracted fight over Keystone would not be a good start.

Second, he shares the incoming president’s commitment to economic restructuring through investments in green technologies to fight climate change. Keystone lies outside those parameters.

Third, Mr. Trudeau’s highest priority is to win a Canadian exemption from the Buy American provision in the new administration’s US$700-billion procurement and R&D program. Buy American rules could freeze central Canadian manufacturers out of the U.S. market, while also disrupting supply chains.

So let's go over the Shiny Pony's reasoning, as Ibbitson lays out for us in his shithole of a lying media property:
  1. He's a pathetic coward more anxious to go along to get along than to advance Canada's national interest, as opposed to his behaviour under God-Emperor Donald Trump where he was anxious to "stand up" to a superior man rather than advance Canada's national interest.
  2. He's just as retarded and evil and despicable as the man he wants to suck up to, and would advance this horrible policy no matter what Biden thought.
  3. He's a duplicitous scumbag who refuses to treat all national economic activity, not to mention voters and public interests, equally equitably or fairly.
As a minor aside to point (3) above, anti-oil retards online are telling Alberta in the wake of all this that we (ie. Jason Kenney) need to stop "putting our eggs in one basket" and waste tax money on renewables while also selling oil to more non-US countries, so why doesn't that logic equally apply to manufacturing industries in the Golden Triangle? Maybe try selling more of your automobiles to Europe or Asia? 

 How Alberta is expected to get this oil to other countries when our pipelines are blocked by anti-oil activists north, east, south, and west is an exercise these nutters have left to you and I to figure out, apparently. How hard is it to built a space elevator exactly?
But energy is as crucial to the North American economy as manufacturing. Richard Masson, executive director at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy, says he believes Mr. Trudeau should integrate the Keystone XL pipeline into a comprehensive Buy North American pitch.

“The whole North American economy can be more efficient if we work together rather than if we start setting up barriers,” he said in an interview. “That is the argument that we need the Canadian government to make, and this pipeline is part of that argument.”

But he is “not very optimistic” the argument will prevail. Keystone has become such a lightning rod among environmentalists and their allies that Mr. Biden wouldn’t dare reverse himself even if he wanted to.

Democrats have traditionally been suspicious of trade agreements that put local manufacturing jobs at risk. Under Mr. Trump, Republicans became equally protectionist. Despite their deep polarization, the Americans have reached a consensus in rejecting the globalization of trade.
Whoops, he almost said an unqualified negative thing about FakePresident Biden and has to try to turn it back around to blaming it on Trump. Nevermind that both parties had pro- and anti-trade wings in the 2016 election, but curiously only the Republicans still have people in both camps.

I'm about to leave Ibbitson with the last word. I know, I know, I typically don't do that. But I'm going to tell you to first read the title of this post, and then read the final two lines of Ibbitson's article. Capiche?
The Canadian and Mexican governments, to their great credit, were able to preserve the fundamentals of a continental market by renegotiating the North American free-trade agreement. But that agreement won’t save Keystone XL, any more than a court challenge will.

For as long as Joe Biden is president, Keystone is dead.

@MikeStaresinic - Come back Senator Cotton! All is forgiven!

Deploying the army against citizens? It's wrong. So very very very wrong to have official people with guns ready to shoot people just because their protest might turn violent. I know it's wrong because Mike Staresinic said so.

Letting a protest that may or may not get out of hand go without a harsh presence of offical people with guns they will use to shoot them? That's wrong. You should totally put official people with guns in to stop violence. I know this because...Mike...Staresinic...hey, wait...

As you might guess, Staresinic saying GOP legislators "ought to peel off, back off, drop off" and "it can't end well for them" when their political views are tied to protesters who get violent is just another lucky recipient of Big Tech's political biases. He doesn't have to worry: he's not Kevin McCullough.

But ain't it funny how Cotton's suggestion about BurnLootMurder that was so abhorrent then is celebrating today (and also public policy cheered on by the NYT).

Ugandan election

Quick quiz, will claiming that the election isn't legitimate because of some shady stuff being reported get you banned from social media? Will Bobi Wine be banned because some of his supporters were violent even when he asked them not to be violent but still fight for their rights?


Note the only way that the Museveni-Wine and Trump-Biden comparisons don't hold up is that the official counts in the former show the President winning by a huge margin.

If the far-left Big Techs didn't have double standards they wouldn't have any standards at all...

@Paulbyjove1 - Did BurnLootMurder have a parade permit?

Actually, the answer to the question "should all businesses require strict state licencing" is no. 

That you're so ignorant to be unaware of this speaks to how intellectually (along with morally) bankrupt the modern left really is.

Here's the case against business licenses by Lee Friday.

Here's the case against business licenses by David S. D’Amato.

Here's the case against business licenses by Senator...Joseph...Biden...?

Here's the case against business licenses by Paul Boyce.

Finally, here's the case against business licenses by Mark Steyn.

So yes, business licensing is a "freedom" issue: those who believe in the fundamental principle of liberty have been speaking out against this sort of nonsense for decades now. Where has Paul been? Probably in a public school being taught lies by unionized (and "certified") teachers.

It would be funny except Red Indians are violently chasing innocent whites in Winnipeg today

A whiny Red Indian in Brandon Manitoba is filing a human rights complaint over a cartoon in a homework assignment.

Grace Masse, a mother of six, said she was very upset when one of her children pulled out a math worksheet for their Grade 5 class, and found an offensive image depicting an Indigenous person on horseback who appears to be attacking two people in a horse-drawn carriage.

"It upholds the systemic racism, it does not tell the history from the Indigenous perspective," she said. "This image really impacted me a lot. It just breaks my heart. And my kids, I'm trying to teach them how to live in both worlds, and this kind of image kind of takes two steps back on that."
What "indigenous perspective" is this single welfare mother of six talking about? She'd prefer the image show a nice clear view of the back of whitey's delicious exposed scalp as the Red Indian on a horse (which he culturally appropriated, mind) chased them down? Also if she wants the kids to learn from a Red Indian perspective then perhaps she should put them in a school system funded by her and her lazy race of tax sponges. Whitey is paying to educate the children Grace keeps spitting out (and come to think of it, paying their entire child race), so maybe let us do it however we like.

Bonus question: did the presstitute liars at CTV or Global News bother to ask her if she could answer the question? (the Global News story showed it filled out, though it was unclear by whom). Spoiler alert, you think it's going to be a funny riddle or something but instead it's horribly generic and obvious. "Wheel trouble". Still, I have a funny feeling that Masse couldn't have figured out a Grade 5's homework. It's why her grandmother was sensibly educated in a Residential School.



President Trump's last day in office (until January 20, 2025)



So which slut did Jared Porter show his dick to? Hazel Mae?


Porter, who was hired as New York's general manager in December, reportedly began a texting conversation with a foreign correspondent who moved to the United States to cover MLB. The woman met Porter at Yankee Stadium in June 2016, exchanging business cards after a brief conversation regarding international prospects. Porter then invited the reporter to meet him for a drink the next night. After the reporter declined to meet with Porter, he began a string of over 60 unsolicited texts, per Kimes and Passan.
So...Hazel Mae? Porter heard how she'd screw Terry Francona and even Brian Burke and decided to get in there?

Nope..this foreign reporter apparently has trouble with English:
ESPN obtained the explicit messages sent by Porter in December 2017. The outlet then reached out to the woman in question, who originally did not want the story to be released due to concerns for her career. In recent days, she "decided to come forward only on the condition of anonymity because she fears backlash in her home country," per ESPN.

"My number one motivation is I want to prevent this from happening to someone else," the reporter told ESPN through an interpreter. "Obviously he's in a much greater position of power. I want to prevent that from happening again. The other thing is I never really got the notion that he was truly sorry.

"I know in the U.S. there is a women's empowerment movement. But in [my home country], it's still far behind," the woman said. "Women get dragged through the mud if your name is associated with any type of sexual scandal. Women are the ones who get fingers pointed at them. I don't want to go through the victimization process again. I don't want other people to blame me."

So we can look at the evidence that she's not from a European country. Possibly she's Asian but I'm going to go on a limb and say she's from a Latin American country. International baseball coverage is pretty spotty outside the Americas, so let's play the numbers here.

It also lines up with this guy's observation:

After she sent a selfie, Porter responded: "You're gorgeous. Want more of me?" She said yes

Porter sent three pictures including the first of several that would show a man lying on a bed with a bulge in his pants. "Like?" Porter wrote. She laughed again and texted yes

We can also guess that she covers either the Yankees or the Mets: at the time in 2016 Porter was with the Cubs, who on June 30th did start a series against the Mets. None of their other June 2016 games were in the area though I suppose he could have spent June 9th in NYC the day after their Phillies series but before the Braves, or June 16th between their disappointing outing against Washington and before their amazing domination of the Pirates (DC to NYC isn't a rough drive or train ride, but it makes getting to Pittsburgh a bit of a pain).

They did meet in Yankee Stadium though, so let's presume that she covers the Yankees. There's no database of media correspondents, sadly, and there are a lot of international broadcast partners to manually sort through. We do know the Yankees were also in town on June 30th and June 9th. Sorry June 16, they were against the Twins.

We do have one last data point: she apparently "left the profession" since the incident. Still, we have four years to look through, including a year of Wuhan Flu shutdowns that make even noticing a reporter no longer working difficult.

So we're left sort of stabbing into the air and seeing what we can find. Which foreign reporters were covering the June 30th game against the Texas Rangers? Again there's no database of media correspondents and post-game scrums aren't the sort of thing you can look up this many years later. As with so many of these investigations, the work is only beginning.

Jimena Sanchez? Never covered the MLB, though apparently she is a Yankees fan and has difficulty speaking English. She seems a little too big and popular to be worried about how she'll be perceived, but also likes her privacy... was she in NYC in June of 2016?


Somewhere somebody knows for sure who this reporter girl is, and then we can see if she was worth sending a dick pic and possibly losing your job over...

Completely unrelated: the sexy Sportsnet anchors. 

Also completely unrelated: Kellyanne Conway attended the Yankees game on June 29th

Downloading everything for the win


With the latest round of hypersensitive media companies banning media works that aren't "woke" enough, it's getting even worse. Gone With the Wind, The Dukes of Hazzard, and a large number of TV shows featuring blackface jokes have been recently removed from streaming services.
The past couple weeks of course have rapidly accelerated this trend, to the point where U.S. media companies are under pressure to follow the lead of Canada's evil far-left state broadcaster and remove God-Emperor Donald J. Trump from the movie Home Alone 2.

Speaking of Culkin...his friends at RedLetterMedia had a YouTube video pulled this week. It wasn't political censorship unlike what happened to PragerU or Scott Adams but rather was a mere example of their crappy "copyright" system.

As an end user, whether it's because Google/Facebook/Twitter hate and fear superior conservative arguments, or lazily allow fraudsters to rip off their content creators, the end result is the video you used to be able to watch not being available anymore.

Speaking of which...

I think it was three years ago at the bar that Martok and I were talking about porn. One of the things he thought was pretty great about the modern world was that PornHub exists, and he never has to worry about having a porn stash somewhere because he can just go on PornHub and watch anything new he wants and remember enough titles to find old favourites relatively easily.

And then December happened. A fraudulent New York Times story claiming child porn and sex trafficking was "rampant" made huge waves: suddenly credit card companies were refusing to do business with companies based on the words of a serial presstitute:
When Kristof turns his notebook in the direction of women with stories of trauma, the resulting narratives most often fall somewhere between beneficent voyeurism and journalistic malpractice. (Kristof, writing about his coverage of refugees in 2006: “It’s often agonizing to try to figure out how far you can go in identifying a rape victim, for example, so that a column will come alive—without putting her at risk of revenge.”) He has yet to face any professional consequences for his role in advancing the Somaly Mam Foundation, the anti–sex trafficking organization that, thanks to him, was able to launder allegedly invented sex slave stories through the paper of record. (New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan, in 2014, after one of his key sources was exposed for lying about sex trafficking: “Nicholas Kristof Should Give Readers a Full Explanation About Somaly Mam.”)

In response, PornHub bowed to pressure from credit card companies who themselves bowed to pressure from the New York Times (seriously, who even does that anymore?) and deleted all of their user-provided content. Suddenly Martok's old favourites aren't quite so relatively easily pulled up. In fact, overnight the popular site became more-or-less useless. The only videos still allowed up are "verified" partners (which curiously enough seemed to be the majority of the questionable videos to begin with). Traffic has fallen from the site so much that now the same porn actresses that were decrying it want it back up and running. Funny thing is that users could browse the site to their hearts' content and never once even stumble across the videos Kristof claimed was so common: while there certainly are going to be a small number of amateur videos put up of girls under the age of 18, we're likely talking 16 or 17 here and not 7 or 8. Bear in mind, as always, these are the same people assuring you that a 5 year old taking hormones is perfectly fine but a 17 year old being sexually pursued isn't.

Thanks to a Queerbec-based company buying up a lot of adult "tubesite" properties, there aren't many good competitors ready to take up the slack. Briefly in December SpankBang implemented a number of policy changes meant to keep the heat off of them, but after their traffic also collapsed they relented. FreeUsePorn has seen a huge traffic spike since mid-December that, like Gab and Parler this week, have resulted in crashed servers and difficulty scaling up their bandwidth.

PornHub also made a big deal about how they stopped people from downloading offline copies of their videos. But they didn't. They couldn't. Because the dirty little secret is anything that can be streamed to your screen can be similarly put onto your hard drive. The little 1s and 0s don't care where they go, and there's lots of software overruling those who try to stop you. Absolutely any video on any streaming site can be downloaded with the right browser extension or third-party website.

For YouTube, the best way to save any short video onto your hard drive is the YouTube to MP3/MP4 online converter. I routinely use it to save songs I find on YouTube and if your video is short and you don't care about the image quality it's a quick and dirty little tool. Literally dirty though: be warned it's one of those sites you have to be quick on your mouse finger as it tends to load those Bet365 popup windows that quickly refresh to say "your computer is hacked and you need to send us money". For longer videos or ones where you want to preserve a higher resolution, using the VLC music player is your best bet:

  1. Open VLC and click "Open Media"
  2. Click "Network" and paste YouTube URL (note: use the one from the top of your browser, not the link generated when you "share" the video)
  3. Select "Tools" and then "Codec Information" because you're using Windows. Mac users are tiny babies who shouldn't be reading my blog.
  4. Find the "Location" bar at the bottom and copy that URL
  5. Paste that URL into your browser (pro tip: use an incognito window so future searches aren't super-annoying with the auto-fill)
  6. Right click the video and select "Save Video As"
  7. Name the file and save to desired location
For other websites like the PornHubs or DailyMotions or CBC.cas of the world, the DownloadVideoHelper is your go-to source. It lets you save the video from any website (ironically it doesn't really work with YouTube and only saves the video without sound) permanently. No longer will deletions (for whatever reason) of your favourite video material concern you. I presume everybody now is using either the Brave or Dissenter browsers: both of which allow you to install the DownloadVideoHelper from Google itself (we will sell the woke Big Tech censors the rope they will use to hang themselves) here.

That's all fine and good if you feel like building a time machine, going back to November, and downloading the "Best of the Worst: Diamond Fox vs The White Cobra" video onto your own hard drive. But it's now January 18th 2021 and it's been pulled from YouTube. What on earth can you do?

Oh, that's easy: just go here and after a few minutes delay you can watch the entire video. Or, do what I did and use the VLC player trick above using the archive.org URL: https://web.archive.org/web/20200917003102if_/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEKKVSjw6JY

I even put it all together in a handy video:  

As BigTech increases their censorship, what I said last summer is more and more true with every passing day: if you don't physically possess a piece of content, they can and will try to take it away from you.

More unemployed fags

Starbucks Canada will close 300 more stores by the end of March. Boo hoo.


Whatever will this mean to the tiny weak army of uranists and dykes who make up roughly half of Starbucks' workforce? Just like the mass closure of David's Tea stores, not a lot of heterosexual men are unemployed as a result of this change.

I was going to link to my David's Tea post, because I was sure I made one back when their store closures were announced, but apparently I didn't. The closest I came was an obscure reference to a Buzzfeed article.

So I guess consider this my David's Tea closure post, and since I didn't make one back in July/August when it first came up, I might as well tell my hilarious Faggot At David's Tea Story. For some reason nobody fully understood, and even Starbucks doesn't have this consistency, every David's Tea store had three employees: two girls and a faggot. Hell, even the picture on their own website makes it clear:


Editor's Note: to avoid disrupting the flow of the text below with "haha" comments after every anal sex gag, I will use the upside down question mark symbol (¿) in lieu.

So one day back in probably 2013/2014 I'm walking through Southgate Mall, and girl accompanying me wants to check what's on special at David's Tea. They used to give out cheap paper booklets with all their stock listed, but inexplicably had given up on this. Frustrated by not being able to just look at a list and pick a tea, and annoyed with how faggy the sodomite behind the counter talked, she gave up the ghost and we left the store to resume walking around. A few minutes later we walked past again and we noticed the faggot was no longer behind the counter. For a few brief moments she considered going back to the store, but almost immediately a door on the back wall¿ opened and the sodomite exited¿.

At this point our curiosity was piqued: we didn't think the storefronts in that section of Southgate (I think it was buttressed¿ up against The Bay) had any storage areas, so we were curious about how much space was back there that wasn't seen by the general public, especially since that back wall was pretty much flush with the other storefronts and wasn't load bearing. So we moved into position and waited to see if that door opened up again. Finally one of the girls walked over to open it up. It wasn't a storage room at all: it was a storage closet. It was a tiny closet that was smaller than the pantry in those new showhomes: barely enough room to hold a mop and bucket.

So why was the poofter inside it with the door closed? Was it entirely so we could witness him literally coming out of the closet? Needless to say we couldn't help ourselves and started laughing uncontrollably. From that moment until the malls shut down, every time I walked past a David's Tea store with their token David's Tea faggot, I couldn't help but look directly at him and start laughing. Literally in the closet.

Hilarious but nevermore: the only David's Tea store left in Edmonton is at West Ed, and the last time I was there they only had two girls working the counter: I suppose another cost cutting effort.

Bonus career advise for sodomites who aren't willing to change to a better orientation: I guess you could all get jobs as atrocious dog stylists.
