Thought for the day

"Everything went strictly ‘by the book,’ using means that were permitted by the constitution. At first there were ‘emergency decrees’ by the president of the Reich, and later a bill was passed by a two-thirds majority of the Reichstag giving the government unlimited legislative powers, perfectly in accordance with the rules for changing the constitution." -- Sebastian Haffner, Defying Hitler (paperback, Kindle, audiobook)

Tom Cotton: Conservatives Should Oppose Media Cartel Bill that Will Lead to More Censorship MikeRivero Fri, 09/23/2022 - 08:54

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said on Wednesday that conservatives should oppose the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) because it will lead to more censorship.

“The Journalism Competition and Protection Act (JCPA) lets the media form a cartel to negotiate w/ big tech. Conservatives should oppose special treatment for favored industries, and a cartel will lead to more censorship. Republicans should vote NO on the JCPA,” Cotton said in a statement.

I first noticed it 10 years ago while watching a BBC adaptation of Graham Greene’s famous 1938 gangster novel Brighton Rock. Considered a very violent book for its time, it was famously filmed in 1948 as a classic piece of British noir starring a young Richard Attenborough as Pinkie, the hoodlum with the sharp suits and penchant for throwing acid in his rivals’ faces.

Trump Rape Accuser From NY To File Lawsuit Under New 'Survivors' Law MikeRivero Thu, 09/22/2022 - 07:44

A well-known writer and advice columnist from New York who claims that former President Donald Trump raped her in the 1990s plans to file a sexual battery lawsuit under the state’s new Adult Survivors Act, CBS News reports.

In a court filing as part of her ongoing defamation lawsuit against Trump, E. Jean Carroll, now age 78 and living in Orange County, says she intends to sue the former president on Thursday, Nov. 24, when the new law takes effect.

A recent social media video challenge encourages people to cook chicken in NyQuil (acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, and doxylamine) or another similar OTC cough and cold medication, presumably to eat.

A popular comic strip has been canned by 77 newspapers after its creator Scott Adams started incorporating anti-woke plotlines, including a character black that identifies as white.  

Adams' much-loved 'Dilbert' comics have been in circulation since 1989 and frequently poke fun at office culture, but he announced he was sensationally dropped by publisher Lee Enterprises.  

The media company owns nearly 100 newspapers across the country, and had been publishing Adams' jokes about the corporate ladder for years.  

Webmaster addition: Boycott those newspapers!

Melania Trump has slammed the media and her former aide, Stephanie Wolkoff, over comments about the White House Christmas celebrations leaked by Wolkoff and widely reported by the media, in an exclusive comment to Breitbart News.

The former First Lady’s statement is a response to Wolkoff leaking secretly recorded, out-of-context remarks expressing frustration with how the media was reporting on the border crisis during President Trump’s term in office, and her role preparing the White House Christmas decorations.

I thought one of the benefits of being cancelled – I lost five positions in quick succession at the beginning of 2018 – is that it immunises you from being cancelled again. After all, what more dirt could be thrown at me? The offence archaeologists did such a thorough job four years ago, sifting through everything I’d said or written dating back to 1987, that there was nothing left to dig up. But it turns out that was naive. Last week I got cancelled again.
