“Free world’s in a mess”

One can always count on Sky News Australia to speak wisely and directly. Here Alan Jones correctly says that a presidential resignation must happen soon. And the main problem with that is Kamala Harris waiting in the wings, a woman who was dropped from the Democrat presidential primaries early on because no one liked her. With reason.

We have entered the Twilight Zone, and the mainstream media, CNN, The New York Times*, The Washington Post, etc., are hiding this from their clueless readers.


* The New York Times recently ran a front-page piece comparing Biden to FDR!

The power of words

One would be hard-pressed to find a better example of leftist skullduggery and conservative naiveté than what has been done with the words “liberal” and “progressive.”

Among the quotes you’ll find elsewhere on this website — the right side if you’re using a PC — is this from Dennis Prager:

The usurpation of the word “liberal” by the left has been a catastrophe.

In spite of what you may read or hear elsewhere, there is only one sort of liberal, the classical variety. Liberals believe in freedom of speech, capitalism, nation-states, etc., traits not embraced by leftists. Quite the contrary.

I’ve had people tell me that liberalism used to mean one thing, but now it’s another. That is not true. What we have now are leftists wrapping the cloak of “liberalism,” the word, around their shoulders. Think wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Being” liberal” sounds sweet. Almost everyone wants to think of themselves as liberal because the opposite would be tight-minded, a nasty individual, and who wants to be seen that way? We all want to be liberal, right? And progressive! Who’s not for progress?

I am. You are.

So leftists have stolen and embraced these adjectives as their own, which makes perfect sense. What makes no sense whatsoever is that conservatives, nincompoops as we so often are, go along with the wordplay, the fraud, the theft.

In this six-minute video, Prager illustrates the stark differences between leftists and liberals. Do you call Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris liberals? If so, stop it right now. Sleepy Joe doesn’t know what he is. He reads his script, written by leftists. Not liberals.

JFK and FDR were liberals. Today, they’d be tarred and feathered by the Democrat Party.

Laughable laureates

Literature

YOU’VE LIKELY heard about this already and laughed out loud, but I can’t let it pass without mention.

Whatever prestige a Nobel Prize once bestowed, and it was considerable, began to crumble when the committee handed Weepy Barry Obama the Peace Prize 15 minutes after his inauguration.

And now this: The prize for literature goes to — harmonica riff, please — Bob Dylan.

Both the Obama  prize and this one are yet more examples of the rot of Western Civilization that was born in the hippie era of the 1960s and continues today.

And I’m not the only one to see this. Scottish novelist Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting, said:

“I’m a Dylan fan, but this is an ill-conceived nostalgia award wrenched from the rancid prostates of senile, gibbering hippies.”

That observation alone deserves a Nobel Prize.
