  1. Was it Trump who rubbed Kavanaugh’s wiener on a girl’s hand? Inquiring minds need to know.

  3. Um, one of the accusations is that Brett's friends pushed his dick into a girl's hand. What does that even mean? The press doesn't seem to have any curiosity. J
  4. Heh. I hadn’t visited Billy’s Twitter page in a while. The stuff he’s interested in and reposting is instructive. It seems that there are quite a lot of false things that he savors and needs to believe. J
  5. Yes. The issue is so important, and such a scary threat, that we can’t wait for stupid old fashioned true science to be practiced. We have to use the new special emergency “science.” You can’t expect consistency. 9 to 16 years of unpredicted, unexplained “pause” or “hiatus”? Heh, an insignificant blip. 1 year of arctic melt? Ha! See? Incontrovertible proof of the Doom! We need to practice such double standards, and proudly, because, as MSK said in the above, the survival of humanity is at stake! J
  6. Billy's mistake was that he went and done got religion. His M.O. had always been stinging snark, but in the past he limited himself to attacking Others' silly beliefs, while not revealing any that he held himself. Billy's at his best when tackling a fucked up mess, like, say, Pigero and clan for their kookball ideas. Take shots at their stupid shit, and you're untouchable because they have nothing to shoot back at if you haven't given them anything. But now Billy has fucked up by exposing himself. He has revealed some of his silly beliefs. He has invested his reputation in a few whacky notions that he can't support, and he doesn't know how to handle receiving exactly what he's always enjoyed dishing out. J
  7. I think you're right. Billy doesn't get it, and can't get it. It's like Merlin and Tony not having the ability to grasp Aristotle's Wheel, and Bob not having the ability to grasp the Polar Travel Puzzle. Cognitive limitations. J
  8. Those NWS scientists sure are an emotional lot. Wowza. Enraged. And what has gotten their panties so twisted? They were scolded for having behaved unscientifically. They had made a statement of absolute certainty about the future. In response, they were told, "The Birmingham National Weather Service's Sunday morning tweet spoke in absolute terms that were inconsistent with probabilities from the best forecast products available at the time." Is that unreasonable? Not at all. Yet these "scientists" are expressing rage. They're calling the comment "disgusting." They're horribly wounded and whining that their morale is being extinguished, and their souls crushed under the bus. Such delicate flowers. So very tender, so easily swayed by their feelings.
  9. It’s already started. Trump-hater employees at NOAA are having hissies.
  10. Next Narrative: Trump ordered NOAA to make the statement. Or, tee hee hee, he wrote it himself with a sharpie! Hahahaha! OMG LOL! TEE HEE HEEEE!!!
  11. Oops. Tee-hee-heed too early again? SUBSCRIBE NOAA backs Trump on Alabama forecast, and rebukes Weather Service office that accurately contradicted him... In a statement released Friday afternoon, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stated Alabama was in fact threatened by the storm at the time Trump tweeted Alabama would "most likely be hit (much) harder than anticipated...
  12. Also, the scent of insecurity. I have no problem with criticism of Rand and her views. It's the making shit up or believing and repeating false shit without investigating it that is so weak. J
  13. KLAVAN: Ayn Rand’s ‘Objectivism’ Is Not Conservatism Ian Waldie/Staff via Getty Images By DAILY WIRE August 31, 2019 On Wednesday’s episode of “The Andrew Klavan Show,” Klavan answers a listener's letter requesting that Klavan share his opinions of Ayn Rand and her philosophy, Objectivism. Video and partial transcript below: Unmute Pause Current Time 0:19 Loaded: 99.56% Duration 0:29 Fullscreen Rand Paul Reveals Part Of His Lung Was Removed In Wake Of 2017 Assault LETTER: Lord Klavan, destroyer of ease and master of the multiverse. "Master of the Multiverse" is the correct way to approach me. LETTER: Recently, Ben had Yaron Brook on his Sunday Special to discuss Ayn Rand and Objectivism. I can tell already this question is going to get me in big trouble. LETTER: As a Catholic, I fundamentally disagree with Rand on certain claims. Yaron made the claim that Judeo-Christian values are not Western values. How would you respond? Additionally, I would love to hear your thoughts on Ayn Rand and Objectivism in general. Thanks! ... Before I answer this question and step in it, which I'm about to do, let me first say that I did not watch this interview. I did not see Yaron Brook on Ben’s show, so I'm not responding to what he said. I'm responding to what you say he said. Ok, that's important, because I don't want to take the guy on if I'm not even talking to him. I think Ayn Rand sucks, ok. I think her writing sucks. I think her books are unreadable. I think "Atlas Shrugged" — I mean, look there's one speech in "Atlas Shrugged" that is worth reading. It's made maybe 15 times. The book is thousands of pages long. You know, I skimmed it. "The Fountainhead" is more readable, more exciting — but none of her characters are real. They all have those Nazi names like "Roark" and "Galt" ... and all the bad guys are a mooch. She's not trying to write reality, she's trying to write her philosophy into fiction, and largely I hate that. There are a few successful books that do that — "1984" is one of them. But even "1984" is a great work of art, so that it can. Even though it's about the Left, even though "1984" is a condemnation of the Left — it becomes a condemnation of tyranny because it's art, so it's above politics and higher than politics and it actually goes beyond politics. [Rand's] books, like once you get her philosophy, her books — I just find them so boring and so stiff and so hard to read. Some of her nonfiction is a little bit more interesting, but no more true ... She really understands money. She would have that clip of [a] dollar bill. She really gets money. Everything she says about money is in a book by Frederic Bastiat, who was Reagan's favorite economist. [Bastiat] wrote a book, I think it’s called “The Laws,” and it's 70 pages long. It's very readable. It's very simple and everything. Ayn Rand knows, I don't know if you just took it right out of that, or if it came true through some other path, but everything she knows, she gets from Frederic Bastiat. And all you need is those 70 pages instead of her four-thousand page unreadable diatribes. That is what I think. Secondly, obviously, while she does know about about money and the economy and capitalism, her moral and artistic judgments are insane. They are insane. I hear ... she fell in love with some like serial killer at one point, from a distance ... That's not surprising to me. I wouldn't just pick on her for it personally, but her moral stances are insane. The idea that you put your happiness above all and that capitalism solves all problems is ridiculous. She claims that the only proper system for an Objectivist is capitalism, as if capitalism were an outgrowth of Objectivism, but I believe that Objectivism is actually an outgrowth of capitalism. She thinks that this system is the bee's knees. This is her religion, and it's going to solve every problem. And of course it doesn't. The morals — decisions that people make in "The Fountainhead" — are absurd. Blowing up an orphanage because you can't get it the way you like it is an absurd moral choice. Putting your happiness first, putting profits above everything, she says you should seek your own self-interest — putting profits above everything. I mean, look at it — look all you have to do, is you look you know ...They just got a judgment against Johnson & Johnson for selling opiates. And this is a complicated case, and lawyers are vultures and sharks and they go after these companies because that's where the money is. But somewhere along the line, someone peddled these opiates to people knowing that they were addictive. This did happen at some point. Now maybe it's the government's fault. I don't know why the government passed on these things ... but somewhere along the line, there was a conversation where [Johnson & Johnson] said, "Well, you know, tough. We've got to sell these things to make our money back, so let's do it, and let's never mind the addiction and the trouble it's going to cause." That's good Objectivism. That's profit, that's making yourself happy. So what? So that our cars explode when people drive them? It'll cost us less to get sued by the people whose parents have died than it will to recall the cars, so we won't recall the cars. I mean, that's the kind of thing that would happen in Ayn Rand world. Her artistic judgments, like against Shakespeare, make no sense because her view of humanity is stilted and wrong, and her idea of morality is stilted and wrong. Now, if Yaron Brook said that Judeo Christian values are not Western values, that's just historically ridiculous. That is historically ridiculous. Western values, even classical values — that pre-date Judeo-Christian values — come to us through the filter of Judeo-Christian values. And you cannot think that a civilization that was called Christendom when it started is not a Christian civilization. It is. It's formed by — everything we think is formed by all the philosophers from Kant to Nietzsche, who rejected it — were dealing with the Christian inheritance. They all were. So it's ridiculous to say that those are not our values and that Objectivism, somehow, are. You know, capitalism is a system. It's a great system. It's the best economic system, but it needs to be hemmed in by morals. It needs to be hemmed in by altruism, and by love of neighbor. And without that, Ayn Rand, believe me, would get nowhere in life.
  14. Yup. They've already beaten it to death, and keep beating. So angry. As is often said, the left can't meme. J
  15. ...or funny. Watching the left's reactions to these little things is very interesting, though. Their concept of humor has been distorted by their hatreds. J
  16. Hey, Billy, did you watch any of the DoomFest on CNN? Population control and lists upon lists of punishments. Yay! Fun stuff. Plus Uncle Joe got a bloody eye. Biden's eye fills with blood during CNN climate town hall by Julio Rosas & Joseph Simonson | September 04, 2019 08:39 PM Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to have a blood vessel burst in his left eye while participating in CNN's town hall on climate change. A broken blood vessel in the eye, also known as a subconjuctival hemorrhage, can be caused by several things, including high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, blood thinners, or even excessive straining. Biden, 76, has long been plagued by health issues. In 1988, he suffered an aneurysm that burst and required him to undergo emergency surgery. The then-senator was so close to death that a Catholic priest began preparing to administer the sacrament of last rites. Months later, surgeons clipped a second aneurysm before it burst. Biden then took a seven-month leave from the Senate following the surgery. Describing the operation, he once said, “They literally had to take the top of my head off.” Jill Biden said in her recently released autobiography Where the Light Enters that, at the time, she feared her husband would never be the same. "Our doctor told us there was a 50-50 chance Joe wouldn't survive surgery," she wrote. "He also said that it was even more likely that Joe would have permanent brain damage if he survived. And if any part of his brain would be adversely affected, it would be the area that governed speech." Doctors removed a benign polyp during a colonoscopy in 1996. In 2003, Biden had his gallbladder removed. He suffers from asthma and allergies and takes a prescription drug to lower his cholesterol. He has also taken medication for an enlarged prostate. Biden hasn’t disclosed his medical history since 2008, when doctors found he had an irregular heartbeat. Biden has also raised eyebrows for the increasing number of verbal blunders he has made so far on the 2020 campaign trail, the schedule of which has been markedly lighter than his main rivals. Those close to Biden nevertheless maintain that he is "a picture of health," according to a former aide who spoke to the Washington Examiner in April. Were he to win the 2020 presidential election, he would be the oldest president ever to be inaugurated.
  17. Totally. And the right needs to get its own mascots. It's missing out.
  18. The right should get themselves a spokeschild. One that's cuter, younger, and even more hypocritical and transparent than Greta. OMG, isn't it adorable how self-contradictory our spokes child is? Don't you dare criticize her! She's just a child. And then the left would go even younger and cuter, but the right could be ready for that, and would switch to kittens and puppies. J
  19. Tasty steamed humans in the near future? It's settled science. It's what we need to do in order to Save The Planet™. Isn't it exciting, Billy? First it will be voluntary, but, eventually, the virtuous wokescolds will have to decide who will be sacrificed for the greater good. SWEDISH BEHAVIORAL SCIENTIST SUGGESTS EATING HUMANS TO ‘SAVE THE PLANET’ The “food of the future” may be dead bodies. Paul Joseph Watson | - SEPTEMBER 4, 2019 A Swedish behavioral scientist has suggested that it may be necessary to turn to cannibalism and start eating humans in order to save the planet. Appearing on Swedish television to talk about an event based around the “food of the future,” Magnus Söderlund said he would be holding seminars on the necessity of consuming human flesh in order to stop climate change. Environmentalists blame the meat and farming industry for a large part of what they claim is the warming of the earth.According to Söderlund, a potential fix would be the Soylent Green-solution of eating dead bodies instead. He told the host of the show that one of the biggest obstacles to the proposal would be the taboo nature of corpses and the fact that many would see it as defiling the deceased. Söderlund also acknowledged that people are “slightly conservative” when it comes to eating things they are not accustomed to, such as cadavers. The discussion took place accompanied by a graphic of human hands on the end of forks. Lovely. Another proposal to save the earth which has been promoted by numerous mass media outlets and environmentalists is only somewhat less disgusting – eating bugs. No doubt Greta Thunberg and Prince Harry will be first in line for when cockroaches and human flesh is being dished out at the next international climate summit.
  20. Damn. This will make it harder to punish people.
