Harvard’s Insatiable Identity-Politics Cannibals

Harvard's Insatiable Identity-Politics Cannibals U.S.A. –-( I have no love for left-wing, Hillary-promoting Hollywood producer and accused #MeToo villain Harvey Weinstein. Nor am I a fan of those who perpetrated the cop-bashing “Hands Up, Don't Shoot” fiction involving social justice martyr Michael Brown. But I do strongly believe that a grave injustice has been committed by Harvard's witch-hunt mobsters against a law professor who joined Weinstein's legal team and had represent...

If Joe Biden had a statue, the left would have to tear it down: Ron Hart

It is not known if there is a Joe Biden statue anywhere. All I could find is a building at the University of Delaware the school named after him for getting it funding. We know the building was an appropriate tribute to their alum because its elevator does not go all the way to the top. Rush Limbaugh made a telling and spot-on assertion recently. If there were a statue of Joe Biden, the new left would seek to tear it down. Biden is running an old-style Democrat campaign, closer to that of Jeffer...

"It's a joke until it happens. DJT was a joke until it happened. The funniest thing may be the most likely thing."

Yesterday, on Facebook, my son John declared an "Open thread for your predictions on who’ll win the 2020 presidential election. I know it’s too early, but it’s still fun to guess." There were lots of answers, mostly "Trump," but some said Biden or Harris or Buttigieg. After 4 hours of that, I said:Hillary. It’s her turn.I laughed and I got laughs:But is it a joke? Someone else commented...She's perhaps counting on a brokered convention that no one can win so they have to call her in to be their ...

Voters worry women candidates will get 'Hillary'd' in 2020

As the 2020 Presidential election nears, many voters feel it's time for a female president. But others feel a lingering trauma dating back to Hillary Clinton's loss to Donald Trump in 2016 -- a fear that at least a part of that defeat confirmed that too many Americans reject the notion of a woman in the White House. CNN's MJ Lee reports.

Fear of getting "Hillary'd" in 2020: Women voters still haunted by 2016 as they size up the female candidates

Devorah Badee would like to see Sen. Kamala Harris become the next President. She believes a woman is simply better trained than a man to handle the pressures of being in the White House.

Wearisome headline of the day: "How gender bias is shaping the 2020 Democratic primary."

The article is in The Washington Post and is by Amber Phillips. I will read it so you don't have to. Summary:  Hillary lost in 2016, and she blamed misogyny. If a woman is the Democratic Party nominee in 2020, she might lose too, and it might be because of misogyny. Therefore people might worry that the candidate shouldn't be a woman, because she might lose because of misogyny.There's some evidence some people support Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren but worry that she can't win against Trump, ...

"Likability seems to have emerged as an important personality trait in the late 19th century, when it became closely associated with male business success."

"Before this, people liked or disliked one another, of course, but it wasn’t until after the Civil War, when middle-class men began to see virtue and character as essential to personal advancement, that success in business required projecting likability.... Americans were also taught that being likable was a quality that could be cultivated as a means to get ahead. In 1936, Dale Carnegie’s 'How to Win Friends and Influence People' warned that those who tried too hard to be liked would fail: Theo...

Trump Is Upset This Infowars ‘Thinker’ Got Banned From Facebook. Here’s What He Thinks

President Trump spent Friday evening mad online. The primary target of his irritation: Facebook’s announcement this week that it was banning a handful of extremist figures deemed “dangerous” from all of its platforms — including Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones, white nationalist ex-congressional candidate Paul Nehlen, and Jones’ fellow Infowars conspiracy theorist Paul Joseph Watson. “Surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!...

Put Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron in a rom-com and that’s automatically a funny combination. Long Shot goes there, but there’s also much more to it. It’s also about politics, particularly about women in politics, and about the media and journalism. The Wackness, 50/50 and Snatched director Jonathan Levine directs the script by Dan Sterling and Liz Hannah. Fred Flarsky (Rogen) is a liberal blogger who quits when conservative Wembley Media buys the site he writes for. Secretary of S...

Hillary Slams Mueller, Trump With Mocking Call For China To ‘Get Trump’s Tax Returns’

Former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton mockingly slammed special counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump by suggesting it would be completely legal for a “hypothetical” 2020 Democrat to call on China to get Trump’s tax returns. “ Imagine, Rachel, that you had  one of the Democratic nominees  for 2020 on your show,” she said, during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Wednesday. “And that  person said, ‘you know, the only  other adversary of ours who ...

Hillary does her Donald Trump voice.

I've picked out the key 13 seconds so you don't have to slog through 5 minutes. I got that at "Hillary Clinton mocks Trump with dramatic Mueller report reading of president's 'I'm f***ed' line, and suggests people raise money to send AG William Barr back to law school" (The Daily Mail). I recommend not trying to figure out the overall gist of what's going on there. Some comedy concept... excruciating comedy concept. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Shakespeare prophesied Mueller Report when he wrote “Much Ado about Nothing”

For two years I have said there is nothing to this embarrassing, wasteful and farcical Russian collusion investigation. There has been no evidence, but what I did not realize is that “evidence” is no longer needed in our out-of-control, unaccountable and politicized justice system in order to ruin lives. Absent any workable ideas, Democrats felt the need to destroy Trump by using their henchmen bureaucrat operatives still embedded in the Deep State swamp.  The only way to identify a reasonable p...

Why John Lithgow Worried About Starring in Broadway’s ‘Hillary and Clinton’

When Lucas Hnath first conceived of “Hillary and Clinton” in 2008, he was writing for and about a very different America. Now, a total reimagining of the show has made its way to Broadway with Laurie Metcalf and John Lithgow in the titular roles. At the opening on Thursday night, the cast and creatives talked […]

Mueller’s Reminder That Silicon Valley Isn’t Ready for the Next Election

What The Mueller Report Reveals About The Infamous Trump Tower Meeting With Don Jr.

After agreeing to meet with Russians connected to the Russian government, and who he believed were bringing dirt on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. asked a Russian lawyer at the meeting itself if she could provide information to connect Clinton to illegal campaign donations — further evidence outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted final report released Thursday that Trump Jr. sought foreign help in the 2016 campaign. The report also details President Donald Trump’s press stra...

Giuliani Declares Victory, Rants About Obstruction In Bombastic Interview

Rudy Giuliani has been busy. He spent the last two nights reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s 400-plus page report in a private room at the Justice Department. As the rest of the public pores over the report on Thursday, Trump’s legal team is in full spin mode, deriding the standard of proof that Mueller’s team used to assess the obstruction case and pushing the “investigate the investigators” talking point. During a lengthy and at times unhinged interview with Fox News shortly after the...

How Did Tech Billionaires’ Favorite Dem Become Bernie Sanders’ Co-Chair?

A few weeks before Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) launched his presidential campaign, he and Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) went out for what Khanna thought was going to be a late lunch focused on policy strategy. Over plates of greasy Chinese food, Khanna and Sanders talked about how technology and artificial intelligence are disrupting the economy and driving income inequality, how to help workers affected by those changes, their shared push to end U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war, and Sanders’ br...
