Raid on the Sublime Porte


Let me say, without equivocation, that the three pasha's who comprise The Young Turks are the lamest, laziest, most ignorant and stupid news commentators on the Internet - and that's saying something. If you want to torture yourself for 8:50 minutes watch these boorish yabbo's "resolve" the issue of "Gay Marriage" for the nation - cheer-leading RBG's musings about A CASE THAT IS CURRENTLY BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT and that she will, therefore, be asked to rule on (unless she's forced to recuse herself for said musings) and getting the objections and legal justification of Judge Roy Moore ass-backwards (They're not alone in this) and comparing the Judge to a segregationist preventing black children entering the Arkansas schoolhouse doors. Others who are very familiar with segregation did not feel the same way about Judge Moore or his ruling.

So the Supreme Court is currently hearing and reviewing a "watershed case" regarding Same-Sex Marriage on which they are expected to hand down a ruling in June - everyone thinks this will "decide" the issue, like all those other decisive decisions the court has handed down over the past 50 years. But while they're deciding, lower Federal Courts are making picayune rulings on homosexual marriage across the fruited plain and these rulings might, or might not, have legal standing come June 2015. Ruth Bader Ginsburg hopes and thinks SCOTUS will look to their neighbors and children and hand down the "right" decision because we've had about 35 years of progressively fetishizing ring stinging and rug munching so "perceptions have changed." On the other hand, though perceptions have changed, the US Constitution has not, nor have the laws of nature, nor has rules regarding logic and reason so there is every chance that Same-Sex Marriage will NOT be found to be legal on constitutional grounds. If scenario 2 (no constitutional right to gay marriage) is, in fact, the ruling in June then 1. I'm definitely directing my web browser to The Young Turks to watch their heads explode and 2. I'll expect a blanket apology to Judge Moore from every gay married couple in Alabama who will have to rip up their marriage license.

Marriage, as an institution, has taken a beating in the US (and around the world I suppose) over the past 50 years but it is a resilient institution. It is of supreme importance to some and of little or no value to others - unbreakable in many respects but extremely fragile in places you'd least expect. It joins the two sex/life forces together into a union that fulfills natures design and adds to (or detracts from) the individual happiness and security of those joined together. People of the same sex should be able to enter into such a union, but instead of calling it marriage which suggests the joining together of the male and female life force - the Yin and the Yang - we should call it Same Sex Merge and give it the unique status of union it deserves and, philosophically speaking, requires.

Who voted for this guy?

Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a  month before the September 24th hearing where   overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view
