Fake News David Brooks Turns Geneticist for the Soviet New York Times

THE SINS OF FATHERS AND GRANDFATHERS

by Paul Mirengoff   at PowerLine:

“It has been years since my conservative cousin from New York contributed to Power Line.David Brooks’ latest column smoked him out, inspiring this contribution:

Donald Trump appears to have caused David Brooks to lose his senses. In today’s New York Times, Brooks imputes the alleged ethical lapses of Donald Trump to the the original sins of his grandfather and father.

It seems the bad seed started with grandpa Frederich who dodged the German Army draft and apparently amassed a modest fortune by operating bordellos in Washington State and British Columbia. The sins of the Trump family moved on through the generations with father Fred who worked seven days a week building middle income housing in Brooklyn and Queens, and “didn’t like wimps.” Brooks also alleges that Fred was arrested at a K.K.K. rally though he allows that it’s unclear if he was a member.

One wonders if Brooks would apply the same family tree explanation to other national leaders. Was FDR corrupted by a family fortune that grandfather Hugh Delano amassed selling opium to the Chinese? Or JFK by his slumlord paternal grandpa Patrick Kennedy or the philandering corrupt politician, maternal grandpa John Fitzgerald? (Tenants in Fred Trump’s buildings enjoyed far better housing than those unfortunate to live in a Patrick Kennedy dwelling).

And Kennedy’s father Joe’s Wall Street manipulations produced nothing of value to anyone but himself. He makes Fred Trump look like a great public benefactor. Of course, there’s also the glaring example of Barack Obama’s father.

To answer my cousin’s query, there is no reason to believe that Brooks would apply his family tree theory to FDR, JFK, or Obama. He probably believes that, when it comes to liberal Democrats, immorality skips generations.”

Why Should Any U.S. President Be Forced to Expose Tax Returns?

In what other occupation would an American citizen be forced to expose income tax returns?

I never have.   Do all of the billionaires supply their taxes for the New York Times or Washington Post fascists when they move from Amazon or Facebook?

Perhaps the University of California at Berkeley would if they hired anyone beyond their feminist professors of all colors, sexes, shapes, and sizes to preach fascism to advance  the tenets of their leftist social science world one sex and body fits all or else.

Perhaps some states of our disUnited States require employees tax returns from conservative janitors and/or teachers only!    Surely these conservatives must be hiding important facts from the New York Times and Washington Post and everything on television.

Today’s Feminist-Feminazi Invasion of the University Mind

Presented by

CHRISTINA SOMMERS

Is there a gender wage gap? Are women paid less than men to do the same work? Christina Hoff Sommers, Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, explains the data.

Note from Glenn:  (Truth is not a value cherished by the animal in the human female.  Throughout her human struggle she has been programmed to act, react,  far more  by emotion including hysteria,  than  seeking and performing  the rational.   The animal prefers chatter over problem solving,  designed automatically to scream to seek safety, assistance, rather than growl, gesture or commit to silence to sense the Nature, degree,  and direction of the threat or problem.

The human animal  he, not the she, is still  the primary warrior, the primary defender, the primary inventor,  discoverer  animal by instinct…..even among so many Americans  of our present leftist, feminized era.

It is likely many, perhaps most of today’s most popular American propagandists, story tellers, and law makers are feminists of all colors, sex, shapes and sizes.  Despite obvious differences in build and other features, these folks insist there is no difference whatsoever among we human animals , male and female.

Therefore, they ‘fascist’ for equality….. and complain about a gender-wage gap.)

Shame and Teachers’ Unions, TODAY AND YESTERDAY….

NEA’s 2016 Presidential Election Performance Was Even Worse Than We Thought

by Mike Antonucci  at INTERCEPTS:  A listening post monitoring public education and teachers’ unions:

“I’m told NEA is encouraging its activists not to look back at the 2016 elections and the union’s endorsement process because next time the candidates and situation will be different.

I can understand this thinking, because the last thing NEA wants is for its most active members and elected officers to evaluate the union’s campaign performance.

I’ve only just come across some detailed last-minute campaign strategy from last October and it illustrates just how big NEA’s failure was.

In addition to all the usual motivational efforts to get the membership-at-large to promote Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, NEA selected six battleground states for maximum effort – not only using teachers and union staff from those states, but deploying teachers and union staff from neighboring states.

The targeted states were Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Trump won four of those six states, but it is the margin of victory that really makes one question NEA’s strategy and effectiveness.

Clinton’s victories in Nevada and New Hampshire came by an average of 2.4 points and a combined total of 29,938 votes.

Trump’s victories in Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania came by an average of 5.5 points and a combined total of 811,762 votes.

It’s entirely possible that NEA is conducting secret evaluations of its political operations and I just don’t know about them. But everything I am seeing suggests the union is prepared to carry on as it always has. If so, it’s good news for Republicans, no matter what kind of nuttiness Trump gets up to.”

REMEMBERING PIECES OF YESTERDAY

(The above article was sent by my next door high school teacher colleague at Minneapolis Edison Senior High School, Mark Waldeland back in the 1960s.   He retired from  the field a few years ago.   On the other hand,  I was fired in 1971 officially for not filling a form out properly.    In truth, however, a leftist of the day, yet a decent man, Nathaniel Ober, an assistant superintendent of schools in Minneapolis, maneuvered my firing because I had aided a gal named, Gloria Pielow, at her request to organize a local school parents’ organization devoted to improving education and truth-telling by the School Administration.  Two of her sons were students of mine.

Gloria Pielow became an ideal star of the community, as it turned out….so fair, so bright, so polite, patient but firm ,  and yet so penetrating into the minds of others including school authorities, who had to listened to her expose  their cover-ups and lies.    The deceits of the school administration  became  exposed to the fresh air of Truth and the more morally gifted among the local public and the  City’s School Board.

One of her daughters was a student at one of the area’s civilized  junior high schools, to where nine black hoodlums had been  transferred by the school system’s central command from a black junior high school totally out of control on the other side of the Mississippi River.   Three of these new ‘lads’, already major trouble-makers in their own school,  brought guns with them.    In fact they were chosen by the school authorities to make the transfer from the troubled school to the untroubled one, specifically  because of their hooliganism.    It was the school administration’s  effort to try to restore order in the mostly black school from whence they came, as well as to  share racial troubles in a neighborhood of  very Roman Catholics, ie., very obedient white working class mothers and dads who respected ‘learnings’…..and a community  which included a number of native Americans and other groups of minorities .

During that Spring, the  School Administration sent a directive to all of the teachers at Edison requiring  us to fill out forms regarding how we spent our time away from school, during the season as well as during the Summer.

Although I taught competitive tennis voluntarily five days a week at one of the local neighborhood court complexes, I refused to fill out that part of the form than dealt with my private life.   (I was the school’s boy’s tennis team coach.  I was fired around the first of May.   Mark Waldeland replaced me at  that position….and didn’t let either the team or me down.  They remained winners.  )

I belonged to the Federation of Teachers those days.   It was destitute in countless ways, for it  had gone on strike and therefore in that time had broken state law.   I was a teacher-spokesman for our profession during the strike, explaining to the public the differences between Truth and the Administration’s lies and clumsiness.

I taught Russian and “Modern Problems” then….As financially troubled as the school system truly was, it at least lied for a good cause….to rise against and reduce rising black hooliganism, violence, and terror…in the years of our Lord 1971 and 1972 and……..and then came Black Lives Matter and the rest…..the following decades of the disappearance of  fatherhood in the Black American community caused by Democrat Lyndon Johnson’s laws associated with  Aid to Dependent Children, where more money was made available to mothers with children born out of wedlock, than those still married.

I went to high school 1948 -1952…a mixed race one in neighboring St. Paul….when divorce, fatherlessness,  and murder were  rarities throughout both of these communities, for both were practicing JudeoChristians then.

(“I THINK MY DOG’S A DEMOCRAT!”)

VIDEO – Song Gone Viral: ‘I Think My Dog’s a Democrat!’

Country singer-songwriter Bryan Lewis has composed a catchy tune poking fun at the Democrat Party, and the video of his performance of the ditty—together with a guest appearance by his dog—has gone viral on social media.

….article  by THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.

(Note from ghr:   My son, Christian R.E. Ray sent this following “incorrigible” and “irredeemable” piece of music and culture of several months ago during the Donald J. Trump presidential campaign to “Make America Great Again”.

Somehow, evil spirits must have blown in from the nearest Clinton Democrat Party Headquarters causing an error in our communications system directing its precious message to disappear into the bowls of modern American communications, my personal computer system without further contact with the free world…..any world, for that matter.   Better Late Than Never!    Enjoy the comforts from becoming Free Again,  At Last, Free Again!)

Obama, the Destroyer of Small Business

Obamacare the Destroyer: How It Has Hurt Small Business

by Andrew Solomon  at American Thinker:

“We, the small business owners, are the last truly repressed minorities in America today.  We used to be the engine of the economy, representing the bulk of new jobs created as well as solidly retained, in some cases lasting a person’s entire life, working for just one single employer.

Much has been said regarding Obamacare’s individual mandate – its stiff penalties that increase overtime, the stratospheric rise in premiums and deductibles – but there has been little coverage of how it has negatively impacted workplaces across the country from a business owner’s POV.

Most businesses – not all – already provided insurance to their seasoned full-time staff.  It wouldn’t seem that outlandish, therefore, to force them to do what was already being done.  This is not true.  The business always had the option of stopping coverage or modifying it if the need arose due to slipping sales.

Forcing a private entity, in this case a business, is never morally appropriate.  Number one: it is private.  Its owners have inherent sovereign freedoms.  Obama didn’t seem to care about individual freedoms.  Force, the act of prying into the life of another, dictating terms by fiat under penalty of threat and violence, was morally acceptable to this man, who had never felt the heat of having to cut a single payroll or come up with a quarterly tax to the feds or the state.

But that isn’t the reason for this article.  Individuals also were subjugated by Obama in the same way to buy insurance, pay a tax, or refuse both and go to jail.

What the media never explained to people, as they never do about employers, were all the regulations that sent small businesses spinning into chaos who now had to buy expensive tracking software and monitor all their employees or face huge fines.

First, we had to deal with the 9.5% “affordability” penalty, whereby an employee could never be forced to pay more than 9.5% of his gross earnings to health care costs.  That was revised slightly higher to 9.6% this fiscal year.  What it did was force employers to track an employee’s wage every month to see if his earnings exceeded that artificial benchmark.  It left us scrambling constantly, discussing rate increase with our brokers as well as allocated hours to make sure we didn’t screw it up.  The vigilance of such regulations was hugely demanding of our time…..”   Please read on:
