Mattis hearing

2017_01-12-mattis-lethal-military

Before Mattis can join the Cabinet, Congress must approve a one-time exception to a law requiring a military officer to be out of uniform for at least seven years before leading the Pentagon. Even some of Trump’s strongest critics say Mattis merits the exception — and the Senate voted decisively today to approve the waiver on a 81-17 vote. It goes next to the House.

Columbia University distributes microaggression whistles to students

From The Babylon Bee.

Sources confirmed Monday that school officials at Columbia University have instituted a new program to help students alert professors and other undergrads to potential microaggressions, with each pupil at the prestigious university being given a whistle to blow whenever they witness a microagression or begin to feel microaggressed against themselves.

Columbia students are reportedly encouraged to blow their whistle and flail their arms wildly about in the air whenever they hear triggering phrases such as “Where are you from?” “Nice weather today,” or “Hello.”

University president Lee Bollinger stated the initiative is already paying dividends, with numerous reports of near-constant loud whistle blasts constantly being heard in common areas, dorm rooms, bathrooms, dining halls, and classrooms.

“One of our history professors warmly greeted his class and asked how their weekend was,” Bollinger said, “without realizing he was microaggressing students who are uncomfortable with the Gregorian calendar. So they were able to slam him with ear-shattering whistle blasts for the rest of the class period.”

“Our university is now a constant cacophony of whistle blasts. Progress!” he added.

No, You Didn’t

Excerpts from the National Review editorial posted yesterday 

The president is leaving the same way he came in: with a great deal of vague and fruity talk about “hope and change,” very little of genuine interest, and an undercurrent of bitterness communicating his unshakeable belief that the American people just simply are not up to the task of fully appreciating History’s unique gift to them in the person of Barack Obama.

And he is so terribly disappointed in us! Having just endured the electorate’s rejection of his party and his mode of politics with the election of Donald Trump, and grimly considering the likely dismantling of much of his executive-order legacy, President Obama gave a speech about how our democracy has failed and why.

You’ll be something less than shocked to learn that his belief is that Americans are so beguiled and befouled by racism and prejudice that we failed to cultivate the sacred spark the Promethean president handed down to us.

Oh, and we watch too much Fox News and read too many Facebook posts from that right-wing uncle of myth and lore, which deprives us of a “common baseline of facts.”

bho-change-not-better

Last night was billed as a forward-looking speech, but it was in no small part an evening of recriminations.

  • He said those who resist his agenda are racists.
  • He said those who disagree with him about climate change are un-American.
  • He proposed adopting new norms in media and political discourse that would suffocate criticism of his party, its policies, and its philosophy.
  • He proposed rewriting campaign-finance laws and redrawing congressional districts to make it easier to elect Democrats.

All this from the man whose administration weaponized the IRS for political purposes and whose executive usurpations were repeatedly thrown out by the courts.

For a man who rose to national attention on the basis of his oratory, he has had relatively little to say.  He brought no new ideas or insights to the office, only a pointlessly grandiose sense of his own specialness.

Barack Obama is a man who stood astride History muttering “You’re welcome, you ingrates.”

Media Poke Honey Badger… Get Bit

After eight years of fawning, butt-kissing, and constant tongue baths, the media have resumed their adversarial role to the new president. Following up on scurrilous, unsubstantiated smears the press were drooling over the opportunity to savagely attack The Donald and treat him like meat before ravening hyenas. They found out an unfortunate fact of life. Prod a dangerous creature and you could wind up having a real bad day.

The Media Is Outraged That Trump Criticized CNN. They Must Have Forgotten When Obama Did The Same To Fox News
The media was furious after Donald Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter at his first press conference as president-elect Wednesday
The press was incensed, but why did Barack Obama not generate the same outrage when he repeatedly criticized Fox News and questioned its legitimacy over the last eight years?
YOU’VE SEEN THIS:

CNN’s Sciutto Calls Colleague Jim Acosta ‘Brave’ After Trump Press Conference Diss
THESE BOTTOM-FEEDING SCUM THINK IT’S FUNNY TO DISRESPECT REPUBLICANS. IT’S GREAT SPORT.

Sciutto discussed the ordeal soon afterward and jumped to his colleague’s defense, calling Acosta “brave” for what he did.
“If I could just add this: a lot of charges were leveled at CNN, including my brave colleague there, Jim Acosta,” Sciutto said.

Killing CNN
Yesterday, Trump made it crystal-clear to CNN that they have crossed the red line – you know, the one Obama dared the Russians to cross in Syria. They crossed it, and Obama whimpered. Trump is done with red lines. He is building a wall, and CNN is closed out of Trump’s news conferences. He flatly refused to allow them to exercise the pretense of journalism by refusing to permit them to level questions at him during his presser.


NY Magazine: Trump ‘Owns the Press’ at First Press Conference
But observed as spectacle, Trump came away with a resounding victory. That’s because Trump won even before he stepped before the microphone, by making the media the story. Last night, BuzzFeed published a salacious 35-page oppo-research dossier on Trump that alleged Russia possessed sexual and financial dirt on Trump that could be used to blackmail him.
Journalists receive oppo research frequently during political campaigns, but publish only what they can verify. By amending this standard for Trump, BuzzFeed handed him an opening to play the victim. Trump thrives in a world where facts are fungible.
“We are now fully immersed in the anonymous, the unverified, and the unverifiable. And he hasn’t even taken office. Trumpism sure is fast.”
