I got blocked by Glenda Gilmore on Twitter. Who is she? Well, I honestly didn’t know until after I was blocked. She had made a statement about how Trump’s desire to beautify Federal buildings was his way of ushering Fascism into the United States…Trump likes Greek columns and you know who else liked Greek columns, right? Well, Obama, actually…but, anyways; I made a comment to her Tweet saying along the lines of “maybe its just that people don’t like ugly-a** architecture”; and I was blocked.

She, is however, a person with quite impressive credentials and is currently a professor of history at Harvard – she’s top of the Elite. Looking at her credentials, I’m not sure if she just doesn’t know anything, or knows it all and simply chooses to believe stupid things. In the end, it doesn’t matter: out of ignorance or malice, she’s yet another person running our culture determined on the destruction of civilization. The barbarians are not at the gates: they are within the walls and destroying everything they touch. Mark my words – if we don’t have a very swift reaction against barbarism, in 100 years people will be trying to cure cancer with poultices and goat entrails.

Biden in finished for all intents and purposes – but you wonder what cruelty keeps his handlers from telling him to get out? The latest bit:

On Sunday, Joe Biden snapped at a voter in New Hampshire, calling him a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier.”

The dust-up came after the voter asked Biden, “How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win a national election?”

“You ever been to a caucus?” Biden replied.

After the voter said she indeed had attended a caucus, Biden shot back: “No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”

I’m getting embarrassed for the guy: he’s a very old man clearly of declining physical and mental capacity – he should be in a retirement home, not on the campaign trail.

The Coronavirus continues to spread as China’s government cracks down on Chinese trying to talk about it. Once again: if it just a flu, why be particularly concerned about it? People will get sick, some few will die, most will get better in a week or two. Is this just the Chinese government being stupidly over-cautious, or is this disease far more infectious and deadly than anyone is letting on? I guess only time will tell.

In New Orleans, apparently for years, the DA issued fake subpoenas. The people hit with these fakes are now suing – and the prosecutors are running to the courts claiming they have immunity as government officials. Trouble is, they are probably right thanks to some monstrously stupid Supreme Court rulings in the past. A huge part of criminal justice reform must be making prosecutors fully responsible for their actions – if they fake or hide evidence; if they knowingly send innocent people to jail, they’ve got to pay high criminal and civil penalties. Those we give the authority to send people to jail or to the executioner must be held to an extremely high standard.

A Leftist psycho rammed his van into GOPers registering voters and the news about it has been completely blacked out by the MSM. If you still needed proof that the MSM are mere DNC propagandists, here you are.

RSM notes that Populism is popular – and, increasingly, effective. The story he notes specifically is how President Duterte of the Philippines has cleaned up his country – his linked article tells of Filipinos who live in crime-free neighborhoods where business is good and no one lives in fear. You know: just like all normal people want to live. Contrast this with the Globalist Elite which wants us all to live in sh**-strewn streets where criminals roam free…all done to punish us for not being up to Globalist Elite standards. What is happening is the rebellion of the normal – mom and pop got pissed and started voting against the Elite…and mom and pop, kind as they are, really don’t mind if criminals and bums are given rough treatment.
